Data Protection / Privacy Statement
Protection and security of personal data is a high priority for us. We (Dermaroller) collect, use, and store your personal data exclusively within the scope of the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Tele-Media Act (TMG). This statement provides information on the nature, scope, and purpose of data collection and use.
1. Collection and processing of data on this website
Each instance of access to our website and each instance of retrieval of a file stored on this website are logged. Storage serves internal system-related and statistical purposes. The following are logged:
¨ Type and version of your Internet browser
¨ Operating system used
¨ Page accessed
¨ Page visited beforehand (referrer URL)
¨ Time of server query
In addition, the IP addresses of the requesting computers are logged. Dermaroller has no means of attributing these data to a specific individual. These data are not combined with other data sources. Data that have been logged when you access the Dermaroller website are not transmitted to third parties except to the extent that we are obligated to do so either by law or by reason of a court decision or if disclosure thereof is necessary for purposes of asserting rights or for criminal prosecution in the case of attacks on the Internet infrastructure of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Disclosure in other cases does not take place.
Further personal data are collected only if the user of the website and/or customer provides information voluntarily, for example by making an inquiry or registering or to conclude an agreement or via his or her browser settings.
2. Use and disclosure of personal data
To the extent that you have provided personal data, we use these data only to respond to inquiries, handle agreements concluded with you, and for technical administration. We do not disclose or otherwise transfer personal data to third parties except where necessary for the purpose of handling the contract or for billing purposes or if you have granted your prior consent. You have the right to revoke your consent, once given, at any time with effect for the future.
To ensure that you can place orders in the Dermaroller online shop and that the order is collected in a shopping cart, Dermaroller uses what are known as “session cookies.” Session cookies are small information units that a provider stores in the working memory on the visitor’s computer. A session cookie is assigned a randomly generated unique identification number known as a “session ID.” A cookie also contains information on its origin and the storage time limit. These cookies cannot store any other information. Using the session ID, your orders are compiled in your shopping cart.
There are also permanent cookies, which are used to be able to recognize visitors even after a longer period. This information is then stored as a text file on the hard drive of the visitor’s computer. Unlike these cookies, the session cookies used by Dermaroller are erased when you end the session. When you close the browser window or access a different page, your shopping cart is reset. The shopping cart content collected up until then must be recompiled if you have ended your session, but did not complete the ordering process.
If you wish to use Dermaroller’s shopping cart feature, you should set your browser to accept session cookies.
If you reject all cookies, the shopping cart cannot be used to collect various products.
4. Analysis services
Our website uses the analysis service Google Analytics. This Web analytics service is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter abbreviated “Google”).
This analysis tool works based on cookies. A cookie is a text file that is transmitted when a website is visited and placed in interim storage on the hard drive of the user of the website to enable analysis of your use of the website. The information stored by the cookie is typically transmitted to a Google server in the United States and then stored there.
5. Social plugins
Plugins of the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, are integrated into our pages. You can recognize the Facebook plugins from the Facebook logo or the “Like” button on our page. An overview of Facebook plugins is available here:
If you do not wish Facebook to be able to associate the visit to our pages with your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook account.
Our website also uses plugins of the microblogging service twitter.com, which is operated by Twitter, Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA (“Twitter”). These plugins are labeled with a Twitter logo.
If you access a page of our website that contains this kind of plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with Twitter’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly by Twitter to your browser, which then integrates it into the website.
Through the integration of the plugins, Twitter receives notification that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Twitter, Twitter can associate the visit with your Twitter account. If you interact with the plugins, meaning clicking the “Twitter” button, the corresponding information is transmitted directly by your browser to Twitter, where it is stored.

6. Google AdWords
This website uses the Google advertising tool “Google AdWords” (Express). Within the scope of this tool, we use the “Conversion Tracking” analysis service of the company Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter “Google”) on our website. If you have reached our website via a Google ad, a cookie is stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that your Internet browser places and stores on your computer. These “conversion cookies” cease to be valid after 30 days and do not serve to identify you personally. If you visit certain pages of our website before the cookie expires, we and Google can see that you as a user have clicked on one of our ads placed with Google and were redirected to our site.
The information obtained using the “conversion cookies” helps Google to prepare visit statistics for our website. These statistics tell us the total number of users who have clicked on our ad and, additionally, which pages of our website were subsequently accessed by the relevant user. We and other Google AdWords advertisers do not, however, receive any information whatsoever that can be used to identify users personally.
You can prevent the installation of conversion cookies by adjusting your browser settings accordingly, for example by setting your browser to deactivate automatic placement of cookies in general or to specifically block only cookies from the domain “googleadservices.com.”

We use components (videos) from the company YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, a company of Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, on our website.
In the process, we use an option provided by YouTube called “extended data protection mode.”
If you access a page that has an embedded video, a connection to the YouTube servers is established, and in the process, the content is displayed on the website through a notice sent to your browser.
According to information from YouTube, data are only transmitted to the YouTube server in “extended data protection mode,” particularly data on which of our Web pages you have visited, when you watch the video. If you are logged into YouTube at the same time, this information is associated with your member account with YouTube. You can prevent this by logging out of your member account before visiting our website.

In the process, information on your visit and your IP address are stored there. Interacting with the Vimeo plugins (e.g. clicking the start button) causes this information to also be transmitted to Vimeo and stored there.
If you have a Vimeo user account and do not wish Vimeo to collect data on you via this website and link them with your member data stored at Vimeo, you need to log out of Vimeo before visiting this website.

Users can also prevent the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics and relating to their use of the website (including your IP address) and transmission thereof to Google and the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at
