Data use – general

The mere use of our websites for information purposes is generally possible without providing personal data. The case is different if personal data is required within the framework of an order process in our online shop, for the creation of a customer account in the online shop, for the personalised use of Toniecloud at my.tonies.com (Toniecloud customer accounts), as part of a customer care query or the sending of a newsletter requested by you, via our general contact form, or for the use of our blog. As a net-based system with a server the Toniecloud and clients, the Tonieboxes and Tonies with audio content - we also have further data exchange processes, without which the full use of the system is not possible. More details about the general functions of our system can also be found on our website at www.tonies.com/idea.

If we collect personal data from you, this will always take place, if possible for the provision of our service, on a voluntary basis. If there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain permission from you. After you have granted permission for this purpose, you can withdraw it at any time. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties, with the exception of our service partners that require personal data for the processing of the order from our online shop or within the framework of customer care queries (e.g. the shipping company tasked with the delivery, the credit and payment institution tasked with the payment processing, our service partners for customer care/customer service queries, and our technical support). In these cases, however, the scope of the data transferred will be limited to the minimum necessary for the respective service, and all personal data will of course be handled in strict confidence by our service partners. To the extent legally permitted and in consideration of your respective interests worth protecting, an exchange of address and credit details with a recognised third-party company (i.e. Dun & Bradstreet) will take place for the purposes of a credit check. However, we accept no liability for third parties, unless stated specifically.

The use of your data for our regular marketing purposes and for similar goods and services is not excluded. However, you can object to this use at any time, by sending a notification to opt-out@boxine.de or the above address, for example.

We would like to point out that data transfer via the internet can always involve security flaws. The complete protection of your data against access by third parties is not possible.


Data use in detail

Server log files

The provider of the sites automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. This data is as follows:

  • Browser type/browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address
  • Request authorisation

We cannot match this data to certain people. This data will not be compiled with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data afterwards, if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use.

The data is needed to correctly supply the content of our website. When using this general data and information, we do not match it to specific people. Instead, this data/information is needed to (1) supply the content of our websites correctly, (2) optimise the content of our websites and its marketing, (3) guarantee the permanent functioning of our information technology systems and the technology of our websites, and (4) to provide prosecution authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyberattack. This anonymously collected data and information will therefore be analysed statistically and with the objective of increasing data protection and data privacy in our company, in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data in the server log files will be stored separately from all personal data entered by the data subject.

Contact form

If you send us queries via the contact form, your voluntary details from the contact form, and the contact details given voluntarily by you therein (personal data), your name, and your email address will be automatically stored for us for the purpose of processing the query and in the case of follow-up questions, until the matter concerned is finally clarified. Of course, we will not pass this data on without your permission.

Application

You can also apply to our company electronically (via email). Of course, we will only use your data to process your application and we will not pass it on to third parties. Please note that emails sent without encryption cannot be protected against access. We only collect and process personal data of applicants for the purposes of handling the application process. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data transferred will be stored by us for the purposes of handling the employment relationship in consideration of the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with an applicant, we will automatically erase the application documents two months after sending notification of the rejection, provided that an erasure does not contradict other legitimate interests (e.g. burden of proof in a procedure in accordance with the AGG [General Equal Treatment Act]).

Data use in our online shop

We require your personal data to implement your order in our online shop. For this purpose, we need your title, first names, last names, email address, delivery address, billing address, and, as voluntary information, your telephone number for queries about your order. If you would like to create a customer account with us, we will store your personal data so that it does not have to be entered again for each order. This will save you time and protect you against any typing errors. You will also receive personal access to your order history, and you can set individual user settings, should you wish. When setting up a customer account, the following personal data about you will be stored: title, first name, surname, email address, delivery address, billing address, payment method (as a default setting for the first purchase), your telephone number (as voluntary information for queries about your order) and the password selected by you.

Data use: Toniebox, Tonies and Toniecloud, Toniecloud customer account

Each Toniebox has an individual client certificate ex works, with which it can clearly authenticate itself in the Toniecloud. As well as this client certificate, a Toniebox ID is also stored in the Toniecloud for each Toniebox. This Toniebox ID is also applied on the underside of the Toniebox. During the first activation and when connecting to a new Wi-Fi network, you will be asked to enter the Toniebox ID for calibration with the Toniecloud. This is to ensure that only authorised Tonieboxes can contact the Toniecloud.

Via the Toniebox ID, the Toniebox will also be linked to a Toniecloud customer account. For the creation of this account, you need a valid email address, and you can enter additional personal details (first name, surname and gender) and subscribe to the newsletter. You also have to enter your Toniebox ID, in order to connect your Toniebox to your customer account.

The creation of a Toniecloud customer account is absolutely necessary for the use of the Creative-Tonies, connections to other Toniecloud members, and other functions.
When you use your Toniebox, it will attempt to establish a connection to the Toniecloud in the following events: upon first-time activation, when switching on, when setting up an unknown Tonie, and upon a search for new Tonie content triggered by you. If the connection to the Toniecloud is successful, the Toniebox will send your individual client certificate, your IP address and a time stamp. When you use Tonies and a Toniebox, we will also receive data about operation events (Tonie set up/removed, including the names of the Tonies [e.g. Creative-Tonie or The Gruffallo Tonie], volume changed, rewind and skip, headphones inserted/removed, charging station connected/removed). We thereby want to continuously improve our service and our product for you. The data transfers described above are therefore stored in server log files and can be analysed by us at any time. This data will generally be collected by us anonymously. If you make contact with our customer service and name the Toniebox ID as part of a support request (e.g. because your Toniebox has a technical problem or because a Toniebox and/or a Tonie has/have been lost in transit), the hitherto anonymous data will be linked to any personal data named by you as part of the query. In this case, the customer service staff will actively point this out to you. This enables us to process your support matter, track Tonieboxes or Tonies lost in transit, uncover cases of misuse and rights violations in this regard, and defend ourselves against them. The data thereby linked will be erased as soon as your support request has been processed completely. In cases in which a rights violation is possible, we will store the data until the clarification of the rights violation or, if proceedings have been initiated, until their conclusion, and we will only erase it when we no longer need the data for evidence or legal defence purposes, or due to retention requirements.

Should you set up a Toniecloud customer account and connect your Toniebox to this account using the Toniebox ID, we can match your customer data with the data described above, and we will therefore be able to tailor our newsletters (if you have decided to receive them) and other advertising measures to you and your individual interests, and continually improve their benefits. If you do not wish for this to happen, you have the opportunity at any time, of course, to deactivate it in your Toniecloud customer account settings (under "Mein Profil" [My Profile]) or inform us of your decision via email (opt-out@boxine.de) or over the telephone. You will find our contact details above or in the legal notice.

If you upload audio files in the Toniecloud for your Creative-Tonies (via the Tonie smart phone app or via our website), these files will be converted by our server to the required audio format and then provided for playing on the Creative-Tonies. Your originally uploaded data will be automatically deleted after seven days. The converted data will then be located in our Toniecloud. You can upload new data for the desired Creative-Tonie as often as you like; the old data will thereby be deleted and replaced by the new data. We do not store the old data; for technical reasons, however, the converted data is kept for at least seven days after the conversion. We reserve the right to randomly examine the uploaded data to check for any possible violation of applicable law (including copyright law, personality rights and competition law), the applicable jurisdiction, and/or moral standards. Should we discover a violation, we reserve the right to delete the data from our Toniecloud and close your Toniecloud customer account.

If you close your Toniecloud customer account, you have the opportunity to grant another user administration rights before leaving and therefore authorise him/her to continue to use the Toniecloud account. In this case, despite the deletion of the Toniecloud customer account, uploaded data will remain in the Toniecloud.

Data use: Tonie smart phone app and QR code on Toniebox packaging

If you use our Tonie smart phone app, you require a Toniecloud customer account, and you also have to log onto the Tonie smart phone app with your email address and your password before you can use the app. The app enables you to make voice recordings and connect them to a selected Creative-Tonie by uploading them via the app from your smart phone in the Toniecloud.

Finally, we would like to point out that each Toniebox package is provided with a QR code in the factory; this is primarily for internal purposes (ERP system). This information is generally not linked to your customer account. The only case in which this does not apply is when we have sufficient indications of fraud. The QR code would then be linked to your customer account in order to trace Tonieboxes that have not arrived. This is for our protection against rights violations. The personal data thereby used will be erased by us as soon as the suspicion of fraud has failed to be confirmed or as soon as fraud proceedings initiated have been closed, and the data is no longer required for the purposes of evidence and legal defence.

Customer service

If you contact our customer service staff by telephone, via email to tonies.com/support, or directly, your telephone number and email address, as well as other details you provide to our customer service staff, will be taken, stored and analysed for the purpose of processing your query. This is to enable a response to your query and improve our products and service quality. If, within the framework of such a support query, the Toniebox ID must be named in order to respond to your query, data about operation events that is so far anonymised may be linked to any personal data given by you due to the query. However, the customer service staff will actively point this out to you in such a case before such a link is carried out, and you can refuse at any time, of course.

Newsletter and marketing emails

If you would like to obtain the newsletter offered on our website via email, we require from you an email address and information that enables us to verify that you are the holder of the email address stated and have agreed to receive the newsletter (the verification takes place in a double opt-in process). You can also provide your first and last names, and gender, voluntarily. Other data will not be collected. We will only use this data to send the required information, and we will not pass it on to third parties.

The newsletters we send may contain a tracking pixel – a pixel-sized file that is accessed by our server upon the opening of the newsletter.

We carry out statistical surveys about the above. This includes information about whether the newsletter has been opened and what links have been clicked on. This information may be allocated to the individual newsletter recipients for technical reasons, but it is not our intention to observe individual users. The analyses only enable us to recognise the reading behaviour of our users and adapt our content to you, or to send different content in accordance with the interests of our individual users.

You can withdraw your consent granted to the storage of the data and email address, and its use for the sending of the newsletter, at any time, for example via the “cancel” link in the newsletter or by sending your withdrawal to the address named above or in the legal notice, phoning us or sending an email to opt-out@boxine.de.

You can also object to the statistical surveying and analysis via the tracking pixels separately using the address named above or in the legal notice, or by sending an email to opt-out@boxine.de.
