Privacy policy of Giulia Langhi

1. the security of the user data is our top priority

Giulia Langhi respects the privacy of all users of the website or online store (hereinafter referred to as "the customer" or "customers"). This privacy policy forms the basis for the processing of personal data and provides information on what kind of user data of customers is collected by Giulia Langhi, how Giulia Langhi uses this data and what rights the customers have. Giulia Langhi complies with the applicable data protection laws and processes the personal data solely for the purposes for which the data was transmitted.

This Privacy Policy will be adapted, supplemented or amended from time to time. Each time the website is called up or visited, the current, retrievable version applies.

If there are any contradictions between this Privacy Policy and the otherwise applicable contractual or business conditions of Giulia Langhi, the provisions of this Privacy Policy shall prevail.


2. type and purpose of the data collected

The term "personal data" or "personal information" for the purposes of this Privacy Policy includes information that can be used to personally identify customers.

The processing of personal data means any handling of personal data, such as the collection, use, storage, disclosure, transmission or deletion of the data.

Giulia Langhi collects personal data automatically when the customer interacts with the website or uses the online store. On the other hand, personal data is collected automatically or manually when a customer makes it available (e.g. by contacting us, creating a user profile or customer account).


2.1 Data that are automatically collected

When visiting the website of Giulia Langhi, statistical visitor data is automatically collected about which parts of the website are visited by the customer. Whenever a website is accessed, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains e.g. the name of the requested file, the customer's IP address, date and time of access, browser used, operating system, amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the access. In this context, it is sometimes necessary to use so-called cookies (see item 4 below);

These access data are evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offer.


2.2 Data, when interacting with Giulia Langhi, for contract processing and contact

Giulia Langhi does not automatically collect personal data of customers, such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address.

However, personal data of customers is collected when a customer voluntarily provides such data in the context of an order or when contacting Giulia Langhi (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such, as in these cases Giulia Langhi requires the data for the execution of the contract or for the processing of the contact and without the provision of such data the order or the contact cannot be shipped. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms.

After the contract has been fully executed, the customer's data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after the expiry of the tax and commercial law retention periods, unless the customer has expressly consented to further use of the data or Giulia Langhi reserves the right to use the data in a manner that goes beyond this which is permitted by law.


3. legal basis for the collection and processing of personal data

The legal basis for the collection and processing of the customer's personal data depends in each individual case on the respective purpose of the data processing. The following are eligible by name:

the protection of the legitimate interests of Giulia Langhi, provided that the interests of the customer or fundamental rights or freedoms are not unreasonably prejudiced;

the conclusion or performance of a contract; or

Consent of the customer at the time of collection of personal data. The customer can revoke his consent at any time. For this purpose, the customer can send a corresponding message to the contact details described below. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

4. use of cookies and use of data

4.1 Cookies

Giulia Langhi may use cookies to continuously improve the website for customers. Cookies are small pieces of software information that are stored by web browsers (e.g. Google Chrome, Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) on the customer's computer hard drive to facilitate the use of the website (e.g. language selection, shopping cart, etc.).

Some of the cookies used by Giulia Langhi are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing the web browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on the terminal device and enable Giulia Langhi to recognize the customer's web browser the next time he/she visits the site (so-called persistent cookies). The duration of storage can be seen in the overview in the cookie settings of the web browser.

Most web browsers automatically accept such cookies, however, web browsers can be configured not to accept or store cookies. If cookies are deactivated, however, the functionality of the website may be limited. Please refer to the user manual or help function of the web browser for details.


4.2 Use of the data

The anonymized data, which is recorded by cookies when the Giulia Langhi website is accessed, can be used for web analysis purposes, to optimize the website and to measure performance. Giulia Langhi may use third-party providers for this purpose, some of which have their own data protection regulations over which Giulia Langhi has no influence.

Giulia Langhi uses functions of the following web analysis services:

Google Analytics    
Provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google evaluates the use of the website in order to compile reports on website activities and to provide Giulia Langhi Fotografie with further services related to website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by the customer's web browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

The information generated by cookies about the use of the website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google observes the data protection regulations of the "Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield" agreement and has registered with the US Department of Commerce for the "Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield" (information on the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield can be found at https://www.privacyshield.gov/Swiss-US-Privacy-Shield-FAQs).

Further information can be found in Google's privacy policy at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.


4.3 Social Media Content

Giulia Langhi can use social media plugins from social networks such as Facebook, Instagram or Twitter on the website.

When the customer calls up a website that contains such a plugin, the web browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the respective social network. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly to the web browser by the respective provider and integrated into the page. Through the integration of the plugins, the providers receive the information that the customer's web browser has called up the corresponding Giulia Langhi website, even if the customer does not have a profile with the corresponding social network or is not logged in at the moment. This information (including the IP address) is transmitted by the customer's web browser directly to a server of the respective provider (possibly in the USA) and stored there. If the customer is logged in to one of the services, the social network providers can directly assign the visit to the Giulia Langhi website to the profile in the respective social network. If the customer interacts with the plug-ins, for example by pressing the "Like" or "Share" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of the providers and stored there. The information is also published in the social network and displayed to the customer's contacts. These social network platforms have their own data protection regulations, over which Giulia Langhi has no influence.


The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers on their sites as well as a contact option and the relevant rights of the customers and setting options for the protection of privacy can be found in the providers' data protection notices:



If the customer does not want any of these plugins to be loaded, it is recommended to log out of the corresponding social networks. In addition, various web browsers can be set up or supplemented with add-ons (e.g. Facebook blocker) so that the social media plug-ins are not loaded.


6. transfer of your data

Giulia Langhi Fotografie will not disclose the personal data of customers to third parties. Exceptions to this are if the customer has consented to the disclosure of the data to companies not affiliated with Giulia Langhi or if Giulia Langhi is legally, officially or judicially obliged to do so. Furthermore, if service providers are called upon to assist Giulia Langhi in data processing, website administration or in any other way and to provide the products and services requested by the customer (e.g. parcel or newsletter delivery service providers). These third parties are obliged to maintain the same level of security and data protection as Giulia Langhi.


7. data security

Unfortunately, the transmission of data via the Internet is not absolutely secure. Giulia Langhi works together with service providers and Internet service providers who take appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect the personal data of customers. However, Giulia Langhi cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted by customers. Any data transmission is therefore at the customer's own risk.


8. your information and revocation rights

Of course, every customer is free to inform Giulia Langhi at any time - for example in an e-mail - that the personal data will not be used to contact her in the future. Participation in the special services of the Giulia Langhi website, such as the newsletter service, can also be revoked at any time.
