Both my sons love designer minds every Saturday morning. I love the way they are both learning the same topic but the classes are differentiated to suit both their needs. The facilitators are excellent and look out for all their students and they are learning a lot of relevant science, technology & engineering knowledge to equip
Them for their future.

Would highly recommend it

Lisa, Glanmire

My son has completed 4 of these terms of clubs now and finds new and interesting projects each week. He has developed an interest in coding and loves the experiments they carry out. Great club and great teachers.
Jilian, Rochestown

Both my daughters ( aged 6 and 8) love attending Designer Minds. It is a fantastic and fun way for them to learn about science , technology and engineering topics that they would otherwise not be exposed to at their age.
My daughters attend the same group, sit together and work together Designer minds has shown them the importance and value of team work when they work together to complete a project, they have to do it together.
Prior to designer minds, like any siblings, they would argue a lot however it’s now entertaining to listen when they are at home playing a game or making something,each one wants to be the boss but they have developed skills such as compromising and there is also some logical reasoning when trying to work out a solution. Designer minds is a very positive experience for my girls and they love attending the Ennis class each week the mentors there are fantastic, friendly and make topics interesting for the kids.
Geraldine McMahon Ennis

My son really enjoyed the architecture classes and the coding, he learned lots of useful information

Trish, Midleton

Seán loved Designer Minds Club. It gave him an outlet for his inquisitive mind and stopped him from taking all my home appliances apart, to 'See How They Work Mam'. Reading the pre-club notes encouraged him to tackle difficult words and to grapple with complex concepts. He thoroughly enjoyed the Homework and the Club and is very disappointed that the term is over. I'll have to lock up my appliances until the next term starts!
Orla, Killarney

Seán has just finished the two year junior cycle & is already looking forward to beginning the Senior cycle in September. Designer Minds has given him the opportunity to explore & experience topics that he would not necessarily encounter in school and the fact that he gets to do this in a fun & exciting way with new friends he has made along the way is an additional bonus!
Carolyn, Midleton

Great club! My son found it very interesting, he couldn't wait Fridays to come and have another adventure with Designer Minds!
Michael, Ballincollig

TM Rochestown Cork

The club has given both my children confidence in their learning and confidence in their interaction with other children. The clubs have always been a hit with them and has broadened their interests to include engineering and science. Their problem solving skills has also improved and they were disappointed when the last class finished and they wouldn't be back until September.
Katrina, Limerick

Liam enjoyed his Saturday afternoons at designer minds . It was one activity that required no prrsuasion from either his Mum or Dad. We are so proud of him as he can be quite shy but this did not inhibit him in any way and he felt part of the club thanks to his mentors.
Mary, Shannon

Great variety of topics. Loved the hands on experience.
Susan, Bandon

Thoroughly enjoyed every week. And best of all learned a lot​ while having​ great fun.
Breda, Killarney

My son learned something new every week and will definitely be going back for the next term
Thomas, Fermoy

My Eight Yr old son thoroughly enjoys every club - being provided with the notes in advance give us time to read and prepare. The best aspect of the clubs is the variety - different topic each week
Pat, Killarney

My son Zach joined designer minds for the first time this February. He loved every single class. He waited every weekend for the email to read up on the topic for the next class. He is a huge Cork City soccer fan and he even missed a few away matches so that he could go the the club. He's already asking what will he be learning about next year! The teachers were amazing always taking the time to greet him and chat for a few minutes when he arrived. Roll on next September and he'll be back.
Roisin, Ballincollig

My son really enjoyed the designer minds classes. He enjoyed all classes and loved going every week. He can't wait to do the summer camp.
Gillian, Carrigaline

My daughter loved the club, she came home excited and enthused about her various weekly projects. We really want to engage her interest in science and technology and this fun learning environment does just that. She skips into club each week and leaves buzzing full of excitement over her achievements. I would highly recommend it.
Siobhan, Carrigaline

My son loved coming every week. He enjoyed each activity. It was great that there was a mixture of individual, paired and group work.
It was his first term with Designer Minds and is looking forward to the next.
Emma, Shannon

Jennifer loved going to the club every Friday night. I never heard "I am too tired etc"
Janet, Rochestown

The children loved the classes and every week were excited to tell us all about their productions. They have asked that I make sure to book them in for September.
Elaine, Ballinlough

Èabha absolutely loved designer minds. She especially enjoyed the brushbot, the rocket and engineering a bridge to withstand a storm. She had difficulty understanding the computer programming, as an all girl household mine craft was very new to her in addition she does not have computer games so she had difficulty understanding the concept of being able to change how the programme worked, I think this was due to her young age. She loved the concept of virtual reality and the links provided showing an insight into how the future might look. Designer minds is an excellent forum for young minds to develop I would highly recommend it to anyone eager to help their child grow. She cannot wait for September to go back to club it cannot come soon enough. An excellent club with fantastic mentors , thank you all.
Geraldine, Ennis

My son learned a lot , and can't wait for summer camp!!
Noel, Shannon

My kids loved it. Each week they looked forward to the next week. Each week was well planned and delivered in such engaging way that both children couldnt get enough. We are already booked to summer camp!

Euan learnt a lot from your clubs. He was very enthusiastic every single Tuesday and every time the notes arrived! Already looking forward to next term!
Ag, Bandon

Designer minds has been a fantastic experience for our child.. Both the subjects and mentors have made this his favourite after school activity to date!
Aoife, Glanmire

Another fantastic term at Designer Minds! Olivia and Clodagh thoroughly enjoyed it. I cannot recommend this club enough. It is a wonderful social outlet for children with inquisitive minds, the equipment used is excellent and the club is run by the most amazing teachers who are kind and patient. I see my girls confidence and social skills thrive. They look forward to every week and they cannot wait for the Summer Camp!
Tanith, Shannon

All 3 of our kids are into science and technology. Our 2 youngest did the Spring term and loved it. Both of them found different sections challenging or frustrating at times but it never stopped them wanting to go back for the next weeks class. My eldest was only disgusted he couldn't do it too.
Gia, Shannon

Marley is enjoying every Saturday camp, we are absolutely happy to continue his little adventure with Designer Minds.
Olga, Lahinch

My son and I wonder what we did before Designer minds club came to our town. All he talks about is what he did, what he's going to do and what he'd like to do at the designer minds club. All week long he researches the topic that they are going to cover at the next club so he's fully prepared when he arrives. He is having so much fun doing things that interest him and he's learning so much along the way. He has met alot of like minded boys and girls at the club and has made lots of new friends. I can't recommend this club highly enough. Give it a go and believe me, you like us, will wonder what you did before you found this amazing club.
Carolyn, Bandon

My daughter came out from every camp on a high bursting with chat about what she had just been doing.
Orla, Ballinlough

Carolyn, Midleton

Cooper loved his time at Designer Minds each week - learn new and interesting skills he can apply at home and work.
Conor, Bandon

I rate the club 10 out of 10 because I was never bored here. All the topics were really interesting and changed every week. I liked that we did the activities ourselves because in school the teacher just tells us about it.
Cillian, Bandon

Jennifer really enjoyed learning more about science and how things work. She particular enjoyed the practical aspect of the classes.
Janet, Rochestown

My 7 year old son loves this club and looks forward to going every week. As a parent I can't recommend it highly enough, it's so educational and fun and very reasonably priced. Each lesson is new and challenging. I also like that whatever the topic, it can be simplified for the younger children and the older ones can learn the more advanced method. That way nobody feels left out and there's little risk of being bored. I only wish that STEAM was taught like this in primary schools in Ireland.
Ann-Marie, Glanmire

Seán loves Mondays! From the moment he gets up he is in flying form. Dressed and ready for school in a jiffy. After school homework is done and dinner downed in the blink of an eye. Change the clothes for the serious business of the day - Designer Minds Club! Makes Monday the highlight of his week.
Orla, Killarney

bridgins is not a very outgoing child ,but has really developed since starting the club and loves all the activities .
Michael, Listowel

It's great for Adam to have an extra curricular activity other than sport, and he thinks the classes are great fun!

Mia, Fermoy

My son thoroughly enjoyed heading to Designer Minds club every Monday evening. He loved the variety & the tactile aspects of learning & socialising in a really fun way. The teachers were friendly, enthusiastic & interacted with the children, encouraging them to explore and learn for themselves through guided discovery. We will certainly enrol again and would highly recommend.
Leona, Kerry

It was a pleasure to see Ben come out after each session so excited about what they had done that evening. The novelty of something different every week kept him so engaged he didn't realise he was learning as sell as having fun!

Talking about the rollercoaster class.
Annette, Bandon

Benjamin, seven in autumn 2016, was absolutely delighted with the course. At first, we both didn't know what to expect from a course with such such a big name, but after first meeting it was clear Ben's definitely into it. He was even able to share Very Important And Interesting Things with me! Thumbs up for two features of the course in particular. Firstly, it's a great idea to send materials via E-mail prior to the meeting. It gives dads opportunity to bond with kids in a very sensible manner and also lets them prepare and look smart ? Secondly, it's very wise to divide participants into age groups.
Bartosz, Killarney

The Designer Mind club is a fantastic way for our daughter to do what she loves most. This term she especially loved working with the raspberry pie.
Veronika, Ennis

Hi my name is Amy and my son has been attending designer Minds for the last year . He has loved every minute of it and finds it to be a great combination of fun and education.

Amy, Fermoy

Daniel absolutely loves designer minds...he can't wait for it every week..it's the one activity he genuinely enjoys.
Sarah, Ennis

This is the one after school activity he refuses to miss! Every week is something new and all explained very well. He gets to release his inner scientist without me having to clean up after him!!
Michelle, Bandon

My child has ADHD and yet every week Designer Minds were able to keep his attention and he was able to concentrate for the full hour without feeling bored or disinterested. I would highly recommend it.
Mairead, Shannon

Evan loved the designer minds club. He learned so much from the clubs that he asked to make sure he was registered for the next term.

Stephen, Glanmire

Olivia and Clodagh love going to the weekly clubs and are so excited to find out the next weeks topic. Each week they learn something new and this keeps them interested. They are learning about the world in a new and exciting way. They are making friends and are gaining confidence in themselves. The staff are amazing. The equipment they use is fantastic. I cannot recommend Designer Minds enough, best decision we ever made was signing the girls up for this club!
Tanith, Shannon

Designer Minds has ignited a wonder and intrigue in Tadhg. He looks forward to club every Saturday and becomes very animated when telling us about the fun things he has done. It is great for him to have a safe space with like minded kids.
Michelle, Ennis

Helen, Ballincollig

Designer Minds has provided a space for my son to to develop his knowledge and understanding of the world around him in a fun way. with each class he comes home enthused with what he has learned.

Louise, Ballincollig

My son Wojciech likes it so much that at the end of the term he has done presentation and experiment for his classmates .
Tomasz, Limerick

Amelia has really come out of herself now that she has found her "thing". The praise and encouragement she has received from her teachers in the club is great motivation for her to do additional research and experiments at home. She really sees no barriers to her doing anything she wants in STEM. I can't recommend this club enough, especially for girls. Both of her younger brothers can't wait to start the club.
Genevieve, Fermoy

My 8 year old daughter says "It's very interesting." Every time I collected her she was massively excited by whatever experiment or project they had just been learning.
Orla, Ballinlough

My son has benefitted hugely from this club, he can't wait each week for the next club, he has made great friends also, his confidence has grown on school also, thank you designer minds
Teresa, Fermoy

My 11 year son has always been into technology but unfortunately his Mom like many other Moms would not!! So when I heard about Designer Minds I thought this would be right up Toms street. I couldn't have been more right, he joined and not only did it get his technology juices flowing but he loved the maths, Science and the creative side of it too. Designer minds is giving Tom much more than I had anticipated and the best part of it is, he's having so much fun too. He has made so many new friends also and he runs in the door of Designer Minds every week☺
Carolyn, Bandon

This club is fantastic for kids and very well organised. My 8 year old son is just finishing up his first term at the weekly club and I have already signed him up for the Spring term. He looks forward to attending every week and loves learning new topics each week. Its great to find a club that holds his attention and lets him use his imagination. I would highly recommend Designer Minds.
Sonya, Glanmire

I love Designr Minds. It is so cool!
Pa

I like the way we do different topics every week. I think that people should come because it's fun and you learn stuff. My favourite topic was when we made logos.
Sean, age 10, Tralee

My two boys 1st & 3rd class are about to start their 3rd session. They look forward to & adore each class and come out after full of facts to tell us & questions to ask. Helena has great control and they really like her. The class is different on lots of levels opening the minds to subjects they might otherwise not come across until they are older. When I questioned my boys end of last session on what topics they liked best & was surprised how both picked totally different topics one the science classes other the engineerig classes. It would be great if these classes where in primary school too :)
Jacinta

My 4 did this course - aged 5 to 9 years, 2 boys and 2 girls. All enjoyed it very much and learned lots! Helena has great control. It's run like a lab class! The topics are really diverse and highly entertaining. Their minds are definitely opened up. As a scientist myself, I would highly recommend this class. Sounds like it's expensive until you see what it is like. Actually worth every penny!
Sile

My daughter loves Designer Minds. She really enjoys all the experiments and has made new friends. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone!
Mary

Great experience and fun introduction to science for all ages.
Guest

An excellent mix of fun and learning. The perfect activity for kids that don't have much interest in sports, etc. Allow your child to attend, and they will educate you!
Guest

Designer Minds gives my son an opportunity to explore and learn in a fun, yet structured environment and he gets to interact with other children who have similar interests. He has no interest in joining sports clubs etc as many of this school friends do, so this class is a great option for him to explore and enjoy hiw own interests.
Guest

Excellent course. My son looks forward to going every week.
Guest

My son has attended 2 terms of Designer Minds. In that time his natural curiousity has expanded, to help him make connections between the world he lives in, and how science and technology are an integral part of it. Thank you.
Jacqueline

The Designer Minds club has been a great outlet for my son, who is very creative and always trying to figure out how things work and why! Designer Minds is a fantastic concept, one I'd recommend immensely.
Guest

Absolutely fantastic! He comes home buzzing, explaining what went on in his class. We are all jealous we don't get a chance to attend.
Guest

Designer Minds teaches children that science is fun. while making friends at the same time.
Guest

Extremely well run for both parents and children. He can't wait for Club on Tuesdays and reads up notes before hand. Wish he was as enthusiastic about school work!
Guest

It's fun and it's science!
Guest

Designer Minds provides a long-sought after source of interest, knowledge and fun in my passionate 10-year-old. He loves it and so do we!
Guest

Excellent club covering a multi-tude of topics to stimulate a child's mind, while having fun and expanding their minds. Thank you.
Geraldine

Helena , thank you just want to let you know your classes get 10 out of 10 as per Pierce. It's fabulous to see the excitement and enthusiasm at learning something new that both inspires and challenges him. Well done I have no hesitation in recommending theses classes to anyone!
Sylvia

My son who's in 4th class attended last term's Designer Minds course, and thoroughly enjoyed every session. We were impressed with the range and variety of subjects covered, and the exciting way they were brought to life that captured the kids' imagination. I recommend Designer Minds to all my friends for their children. He will be back for more!

The Internet pages of Designer Minds Educational Services Ltd use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the dats subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, Designer Minds Educational Services Ltd can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in an online shop. The online store remembers the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

4. Collection of general data and information

The website of the Designer Minds Educational Services Ltd collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, the Designer Minds Educational Services Ltd does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the Designer Minds Educational Services Ltd analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

5. Registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller with the indication of personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller, and for his own purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or more processors (e.g. a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the controller.

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address—assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed offenses. Insofar, the storage of this data is necessary to secure the controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary indication of personal data, is intended to enable the controller to offer the data subject contents or services that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to change the personal data specified during the registration at any time, or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the controller.

The data controller shall, at any time, provide information upon request to each data subject as to what personal data are stored about the data subject. In addition, the data controller shall correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. A Data Protection Officer particularly designated in this data protection declaration, as well as the entirety of the controller’s employees are available to the data subject in this respect as contact persons.

6. Subscription to our newsletters

On the website of the Designer Minds Educational Services Ltd, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise's newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.

The Designer Minds Educational Services Ltd informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The enterprise's newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is authorized to receive the newsletter.

During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way.

7. Newsletter-Tracking

The newsletter of the Designer Minds Educational Services Ltd contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the Designer Minds Educational Services Ltd may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.

Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. The Designer Minds Educational Services Ltd automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

The website of the Designer Minds Educational Services Ltd contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.

9. Comments function in the blog on the website

The Designer Minds Educational Services Ltd offers users the possibility to leave individual comments on individual blog contributions on a blog, which is on the website of the controller. A blog is a web-based, publicly-accessible portal, through which one or more people called bloggers or web-bloggers may post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blogposts. Blogposts may usually be commented by third parties.

If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, the comments made by the data subject are also stored and published, as well as information on the date of the commentary and on the user's (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject. In addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the data subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons, and in case the data subject violates the rights of third parties, or posts illegal content through a given comment. The storage of these personal data is, therefore, in the own interest of the data controller, so that he can exculpate in the event of an infringement. This collected personal data will not be passed to third parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the aim of the defense of the data controller.

10. Subscription to comments in the blog on the website

The comments made in the blog of the Designer Minds Educational Services Ltd may be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, there is the possibility that a commenter subscribes to the comments following his comments on a particular blog post.

If a data subject decides to subscribe to the option, the controller will send an automatic confirmation e-mail to check the double opt-in procedure as to whether the owner of the specified e-mail address decided in favor of this option. The option to subscribe to comments may be terminated at any time.

14. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Facebook

On this website, the controller has integrated components of the enterprise Facebook. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online community, which usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the Internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows social network users to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller is the Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet website, which is operated by the controller and into which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-ins) was integrated, the web browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook through the Facebook component. An overview of all the Facebook Plug-ins may be accessed under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of what specific sub-site of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook, Facebook detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the Facebook component and associated with the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our website, e.g. the "Like" button, or if the data subject submits a comment, then Facebook matches this information with the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.

Facebook always receives, through the Facebook component, information about a visit to our website by the data subject, whenever the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook during the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transmission of information to Facebook is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Facebook account before a call-up to our website is made.

The data protection guideline published by Facebook, which is available at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. In addition, it is explained there what setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, different configuration options are made available to allow the elimination of data transmission to Facebook, e.g. the Facebook blocker of the provider Webgraph, which may be obtained under http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/. These applications may be used by the data subject to eliminate a data transmission to Facebook.

15. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the application "_gat. _anonymizeIp". By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.

In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to a collection of data that are generated by Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the data subject must download a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and information about the visits of Internet pages may not be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-ons is considered an objection by Google. If the information technology system of the data subject is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the data subject must reinstall the browser add-ons to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on was uninstalled by the data subject or any other person who is attributable to their sphere of competence, or is disabled, it is possible to execute the reinstallation or reactivation of the browser add-ons.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.

16. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google-AdWords

On this website, the controller has integrated Google AdWords. Google AdWords is a service for Internet advertising that allows the advertiser to place ads in Google search engine results and the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define specific keywords with the help of which an ad on Google's search results only then displayed, when the user utilizes the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. In the Google Advertising Network, the ads are distributed on relevant web pages using an automatic algorithm, taking into account the previously defined keywords.

The operating company of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.

The purpose of Google AdWords is the promotion of our website by the inclusion of relevant advertising on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of the search engine Google and an insertion of third-party advertising on our website.

If a data subject reaches our website via a Google ad, a conversion cookie is filed on the information technology system of the data subject through Google. The definition of cookies is explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after 30 days and is not used to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to check whether certain sub-pages, e.g, the shopping cart from an online shop system, were called up on our website. Through the conversion cookie, both Google and the controller can understand whether a person who reached an AdWords ad on our website generated sales, that is, executed or canceled a sale of goods.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are used in order to determine the total number of users who have been served through AdWords ads to ascertain the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads in the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the data subject.

The conversion cookie stores personal information, e.g. the Internet pages visited by the data subject. Each time we visit our Internet pages, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as stated above, by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie set by Google AdWords may be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

The data subject has a possibility of objecting to the interest based advertisement of Google. Therefore, the data subject must access from each of the browsers in use the link www.google.de/settings/ads and set the desired settings.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

17. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Instagram

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which an Instagram component (Insta button) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to the download of a display of the corresponding Instagram component of Instagram. During the course of this technical procedure, Instagram becomes aware of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Instagram, Instagram detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-page of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the Instagram component and is associated with the respective Instagram account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website, then Instagram matches this information with the personal Instagram user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.

Instagram receives information via the Instagram component that the data subject has visited our website provided that the data subject is logged in at Instagram at the time of the call to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the Instagram button or not. If such a transmission of information to Instagram is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she can prevent this by logging off from their Instagram account before a call-up to our website is made.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Instagram may be retrieved under https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388 and https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/.

20. Payment Method: Data protection provisions about the use of Stripe as a payment processor

On this website, the controller has integrated components of Stripe. Stripe is an online payment service provider.

The European operating company of Stripe is Stripe Payments Europe, Ltd., 1 Grand Canal Street Lower, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin..

If the data subject chooses "Secure Credit/Debit Card Payment" as the payment option in the online shop during the ordering process, we automatically transmit the data of the data subject to Stripe. By selecting this payment option, the data subject agrees to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing.

The personal data transmitted to Stripe is usually first name, last name, IP address, or other data necessary for payment processing. Payment details you provide will be encrypted using secure sockets layer (SSL) technology before they are submitted over the internet. Payments made on the Applications are made through our payment gateway provider, Stripe. You will be providing credit or debit card information directly to Stripe which operates a secure server to process payment details, encrypting your credit/debit card information and authorising payment. Information which you supply to Stripe is not within our control and is subject to Stripe's own privacy policy and terms and conditions. The processing of the purchase contract also requires such personal data, which are in connection with the respective order.

The transmission of the data is aimed at payment processing and fraud prevention. The controller will transfer personal data to Stripe, in particular, if a legitimate interest in the transmission is given. The personal data exchanged between Stripe and the controller for the processing of the data will be transmitted by Stripe to economic credit agencies.

The applicable data protection provisions of Stripe may be retrieved under https://stripe.com/ie/privacy.

21. Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

22. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.

23. Period for which the personal data will be stored

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

24. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact our Data Protection Officer. Our Data Protection Officer clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.

25. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
