If you would like to object to the gathering, processing or utilisation of your data by Sample GmbH either in accordance with the data protection provisions outright or for individual measures, please direct your letter of objection to the following contact address: TT Trendtime GmbH, Sophienstraße 5, 51149 Cologne

We give the protection of your data and the preservation of your privacy the utmost importance. We therefore provide hereinafter information on the gathering and utilisation of personal data when using our website.


2. Gathering and use of non-personal data

When you access our website, information is automatically supplied by your browser. This information includes, for example, browser type/ version, operating system used, referrer URL, pages accessed, time spent, times and server requests. This data cannot be correlated to any specific persons. This data is not subject to amalgamation with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data subsequently if concrete indications of an illegal utilisation become known to us.


3. Gathering and utilisation of personal data

We only gather and process personal data (e.g. name, address, Email) if you have made it available to us within the scope of a registration, the ordering of products and services or during enquiries and only insofar as this is necessary for the foundation and the content-related configuration or change of the legal relationship. After order handling has been completed, your data will be deleted, taking the legal retention obligations into consideration, unless you have expressly granted consent to another use. Your personal data will not be provided by us to any third parties or to any individuals contracted by us without your permission or a corresponding official instruction.
If you have also agreed to receive marketing materials at the time of ordering products, we or service providers appointed by us utilise the data you provided for some marketing purposes. This consent is voluntary and you may revoke this at any time with effect thereafter.


4. Data protection

To us, the security of your data is a crucial matter and is highly relevant. We comply with the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act, the Telemedia Act and all other relevant legislation.
Accordingly, we apply technical and organisational security measures to protect the data administered by us from accidental or wilful manipulation, loss, destruction and from being accessed by unauthorised persons.
Although keeping the security measures up to date is given highest priority, it must be recognised that an electronic communication can never be completely secure.
Therefore, we cannot accept any responsibility or liability for the disclosure of information based on errors in data transfer and/or unauthorised access by third parties.
Please remember that if you voluntarily make personal information accessible online, this information can always be gathered and used by others. Thus, you may receive unwanted messages from others if you make personal information available online in publicly accessible areas.
Always act responsibly and carefully and pay attention to the non-disclosure of your personal information.


5. No data gathering or forwarding without your express consent

If you have granted your express permission, we are authorised to gather, process and use personal data for the following purposes:
The data required for the supply of our services is saved and forwarded as necessary within the required scope to service providers commissioned to carry out the technical implementation, who for their part are obligated to preserve data protection.
Your personal data will not be evaluated in any other way, nor will any publication beyond this occur. Forwarding to third parties will only occur insofar as a legal obligation exists or this is required to carry out our services and you have provided your express prior approval or forwarding is necessary due to misuse of the offerings of our services for legal or criminal proceedings.
However, in all these cases, the scope of the forwarded data is restricted to the minimum required.
You may revoke your consent at any time by writing to:

7. Cookies

Our website uses “cookies” in various places. “Cookies” are small text files which are deposited on your computer and saved by your browser. They serve to make our offering more user-friendly, more effective and safer. In addition, cookies enable our systems to recognise your browser, to offer you services and to identify especially popular areas of our website. Cookies do not contain any personal data. The data evaluated in the process thus do not enable us to make any inference to you, because the processing takes place either anonymously or pseudo-anonymously. You can prevent cookies from being saved on your computer by adjusting the relevant settings in your browser. However, this may lead to a limitation in the functional scope of our offering.


8. Google-Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files which are saved on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information created by the cookie regarding your use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will however be firstly removed from it by Google within member states of the European Union or in other member states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will be forwarded to a Google server in the USA and removed there in exceptional cases only. IP anonymisation is active on this website. By order of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to carry out other services associated with use of the website and the internet for the website operator. The IP address forwarded by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not amalgamated with other Google data. You may prevent the saving of your cookies by means of a corresponding setting of your browser software; however we inform you that in this case you might not be able to use all functions of this website fully. In addition, you may prevent the capture of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google.

9. Use of social plug-ins

“Social plug-ins” (“plug-ins”) operated by Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Instagram”) are used by Instagram on our website. The plug-ins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an “Instagram camera”. For an overview of the Instagram plug-ins and their appearance, please see:
If you access a page on our website which contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct link to Instagram’s servers. The content of the plug-in is forwarded straight to your browser by Instagram and incorporated into the page. As a result of this incorporation, Instagram is notified that your browser accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not own an Instagram profile or are not currently logged into Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is transferred by your browser straight to an Instagram server in the USA and saved there.
If you are logged into Instagram, Instagram can assign the visit to our website directly to your Instagram account. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example operate the “Instagram” button, this information is also forwarded directly to an Instagram server and saved there. The information is also published on your Instagram account and shown to your contacts there.
The purpose and scope of data gathering and the subsequent processing and use of the data by Instagram as well as your associated rights and options to change your settings to protect your privacy are set out in Instagram’s data protection information:
If you do not wish for Instagram to assign the data gathered via our website directly to your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the loading of Instagram plug-ins using add-ons for your browser, e.g. using the “NoScript” script-blocker (
We have no influence on the scope, type and purpose of data processing by the provider of the social plug-in. Please note that the provider is fully in a position to create pseudonymised and even individualised user profiles using the above-mentioned data. You can deactivate the activated social plug-ins again at any time.
