Server log files
You can use our websites without submitting personal data. Every time our website is accessed, user data is transferred to us or our web hosts/IT service providers by your internet browser and stored in server log files. This stored data includes, for example, the name of the site called up, date and time of the request, the IP address, amount of data transferred and the provider making the request. The processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1) f) GDPR due to our legitimate interests in ensuring the smooth operation of our website as well as improving our services.
Customer account / Orders
When you open a customer account, we will collect your personal data in the scope given there. The data processing is for the purpose of improving your shopping experience and simplifying order processing. The processing will be carried out on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us without affecting the legality of the processing carried out with your consent up to the withdrawal. Your customer account will then be deleted.
We offer you the opportunity to log into your Freeletics account or to register for a Freeletics account by clicking on the appropriate link in the shopping basket or on the web page. You are then redirected to the Freeletics GmbH website where you are informed what data Freeletics GmbH needs from you for registration — namely first name, last name, gender, and email address.
This is necessary for identification so that a secure Freeletics account can be created. We save your email data here and we will contact you at this address with information, if necessary. Without your consent, we will not forward any of your data to Freeletics GmbH. Important: At no point will we have access to your Freeletics login details. You can find out how Freeletics GmbH handles privacy settings by consulting the Data Protection Statement (https://www.freeletics.com/en/pages/privacy). There you will also find the valid provisions for all above-mentioned possibilities of logging in and registering with us.
When you have logged into your Freeletics account, your shop profile is pre-filled with your name, email address, Coach status, birthday and user ID. The purpose of data processing is to improve your shopping experience and to simplify the ordering process. The processing is done on the basis of Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR with your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time by notifying us. This does not affect the legality of any processing carried out so far on the basis of that consent. Your customer account at Freeletics Apparel GmbH is then deleted.
Collection, processing, and transfer of personal data in orders
When you submit an order we only collect and use your personal data insofar as this is necessary for the fulfillment and handling of your order as well as processing of your queries. The provision of data is necessary for the conclusion of a contract. Failure to provide it will prevent the conclusion of any contract. The processing will occur on the basis of Article 6(1) b) GDPR and is required for the fulfillment of a contract with you.
Your data is transferred here, for example, to the shipping companies and dropshipping providers, payment service providers, service providers for handling the order and IT service providers that you have selected. We will comply strictly with legal requirements in every case. The scope of data transmission is restricted to a minimum.
Contact / Evaluations / Newsletter
Collection and processing when using the contact form
When you use the contact form we will only collect your personal data (name, email address, order number, message text) in the scope provided by you. The data processing is for the purpose of making contact. By submitting your message you agree to the processing of your transmitted data. Processing will be carried out on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us without affecting the legality of the processing carried out with your consent up to the withdrawal.

You can withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us without affecting the legality of the processing carried out with your consent up to the withdrawal.

Use of your email address for mailing of newsletters
We use your email address outside of contractual processing exclusively to send you a newsletter for our own marketing purposes, if you have explicitly agreed to this. The processing will be carried out on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR with your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing carried out with your consent up to the withdrawal. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time using the relevant link in the newsletter or by contacting us. Your email address will then be removed from the distributor.
Your data will be forwarded to a service provider for email marketing in the course of order processing. It will not be forwarded to other third parties.
If you have logged into your Freeletics account on our site and, during the ordering process, have consented to receive newsletters, your customer account is linked with the Freeletics account and your newsletter is personalized in accordance with the data stored in your Freeletics account.
We draw your attention to the fact that in sending the newsletter, we evaluate your user behavior, i.e. opening behavior and click behavior. Technically speaking, the evaluation of your user behavior occurs via the service provider. This allows us to draw conclusions about your behavior in order to improve our newsletter and to ensure that you only receive the newsletter you are interested in.
If you want to prohibit personalization and tracking, or do not agree with processing for the purposes mentioned, you can object and unsubscribe from the newsletter by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by clicking on the unsubscribe link which can be found in every email.
Use of your email address for mailing of direct marketing
We use your email address, which we obtained in the course of selling a good or service, for the electronic transmission of marketing for our own goods or services which are similar to those you have already purchased from us unless you have objected to this use. You must provide your email address in order to conclude a contract. Failure to provide it will prevent the conclusion of any contract. The processing will be carried out on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR due to our justified interest in direct marketing. You can object to this use of your email address at any time by contacting us. You will find the contact details for exercising your right to object in our imprint.You can also use the link provided in the marketing email. This will not involve any costs other than transmission costs at basic tariffs.

This includes, for example, first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number and order details.

Use of Google Analytics
Use of Facebook remarketing
Our website uses the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” by Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA; “Facebook”). This function serves to address the visitor to the website with interest-related advertising on the social network Facebook. We have implemented Facebook’s remarketing tag on our website for this purpose. This tag sets up a direct connection to Facebook’s servers when you visit our website. This informs the Facebook server which of our web pages you have visited. Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account. When you visit the social network Facebook you will then be shown personalized, interest-related Facebook ads. Your data may also be transmitted to the USA. Following the US-EU Data Protection Agreement, Facebook has become “Privacy Shield“ certified and is therefore obliged to observe European data protection laws.
You can deactivate the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” here.

This feature visually represents geographical information and interactive maps. Google also collects, processes and uses data on visitors to the website when they call up pages with embedded Google maps. Your data may also be transmitted to the USA. Following the US-EU Data Protection Agreement, Google has become “Privacy Shield“ certified and is therefore obliged to observe European data protection laws.
