We send newsletters, emails, and other electronic notifications with promotional information via MailChimp and only with the recipient’s consent or a legal permission. Our newsletters contain information about our products, offers, promotions, and Celtic Mink Jewelry. Registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration, you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other email addresses. The registrations for the newsletter are logged to prove the registration process by the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. The legal basis for the repository is your consent.

Google Analytics
Based on our legitimate interests (i.e., interest in the analysis, optimization, and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the users is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity for website operators, and provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage. In doing so, pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.
We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization activated. This means that Google shortens the User’s IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
The IP address transmitted by the User’s browser will not be merged with other data from Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; users can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Integration Of Services And Contents Of Third Parties

We use our online offer based on our legitimate interests, content, or services offered by third-party providers to integrate their content and services.

This always requires that the third-party providers of this content are aware of your IP address since the content or service could not send to your browser without the IP address. The IP address is thus required to display this content, and we endeavor to use providers that only use your IP address to deliver the content or services. However, Third-party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. For example, the “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the User’s device. It may contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of the visit, and additional information about the use of our online offer, as well as be linked to such information from other sources.
