However, the web server stores these data separately from other data, making allocation of
these data to a certain individual by PLATIN GENESIS impossible.

This data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR to protect the justified interests
of PLATIN GENESIS, namely optimisation of the web presence.

§2 Usage of cookies

In addition to the data specified above, cookies are also stored on the customer’s computer

provided to the location that installed the cookie. Cookies cannot operate programmes or
transmit viruses to the computer. They serve to make the internet presence more user-friendly
and effective overall.

The PLATIN GENESIS website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality
of which are explained below:

a) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These mainly

objects store the required data regardless of browser, and have no automatic expiration date.

d) Third-party cookies are not installed by PLATIN GENESIS, but rather by a third-party
provider. Cookies from third-party providers are created by, for example, the services of
Google Analytics, which are integrated into the PLATIN GENESIS website. These third-party
cookies are generated by integrated plug-ins or technology from the respective organisations.
PLATIN GENESIS has no influence over the cookies and privacy settings of these services or
organisations, and expressly notes that the services from third-party providers that are utilised
are solely subject to their respective data protection guidelines.

Separate data processing contracts were formed with these service providers in order to
ensure the security of the customers’ personal data.

To process payments, the customer’s payment information, namely first name, surname,
address, e-mail address, telephone number, date of birth and bank account, is sent to our
payment processing provider Powercash21, Piliou 11-13, Quality Towers A 4th Floor, Office

§6 Usage of data for marketing purposes, newsletter

PLATIN GENESIS uses personal customer data to send a newsletter to the customer only if
the customer has granted their prior consent to this usage.

For registration for the newsletter, PLATIN GENESIS uses the so-called double opt-in
procedure. This means that after registration, the customer receives an e-mail at the address
provided in which PLATIN GENESIS asks for confirmation that the customer would like to
receive the newsletter. If the customer does not confirm their registration within 24 hours, their
information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. Furthermore, PLATIN
GENESIS stores the IP address and the times of registration and confirmation. The purpose
of this procedure is to verify registration and to be able to resolve any potential misuse of
personal data.

The e-mail address is the only information required to send the newsletter. The provision of
other, specially designated information is voluntary and will be used to personally address the
customer. After confirmation we save the customer’s e-mail address for purposes of sending
the newsletter.

The customer may revoke their consent to receive the newsletter and unsubscribe at any time.
The customer may revoke their consent by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter email, through the form on the PLATIN GENESIS website, or by e-mailing

PLATIN GENESIS uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC (“Google”).
Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, or text files that are stored on the customer’s
computer and which allow for an analysis of their usage of the website. The information about
the usage of the website created by the cookie is generally sent to a Google server in the USA
and stored there. In the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will
truncate the customer’s IP address in advance within member states of the European Union
or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in
exceptional cases will the entire IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and
truncated there. As ordered by PLATIN GENESIS, Google will use this information to evaluate
customer usage of the website, to compile reports about website activities, and to render other
services associated with website usage and internet usage for PLATIN GENESIS.

Google will not consolidate the IP address provided by the customer’s browser with other data.
The customer may prevent the storage of cookies through a corresponding setting in their
browser software; however, PLATIN GENESIS notes that in this event the customer may not
be able to fully utilise all functions of this website. Furthermore, the customer may prevent the

Please note that, should you delete the cookies in your browser settings, this may result in the
deletion of the opt-out cookie and you may have to reactivate it.
The PLATIN GENESIS website uses Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIp()”.
This truncates IP addresses for processing, ruling out the possibility of personal identification.

and the personal data are immediately deleted.
