Welcome to Ulla Popken GmbH!
We are delighted that you visit our website and would like to thank you for your interest in our company, products and website. Protecting your privacy when you use our website is important to us. For this reason, please take note of the following information:
Anonymous Data Collection
As a general rule, you may visit the Ulla Popken website without providing us with information about your identity. We only get to know the name of your device, the name of your internet service provider, the region and the website from which you visit our website and our websites visited by you. This information is evaluated for statistical purposes. As individual user, your identity remains anonymous in this context.
Collection and Processing of Personal Data
Our data protection practices are in line with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We collect and store the relevant data for our business processes (surname, first name, address, date of birth) and use these to support quick access to customer data during customer calls. As well as this, we collect the email address and, on a voluntary basis, the telephone number to be able to contact the customer for possible enquiries or to be able to send order confirmations for online purchases. We pass personal data on to specialised service providers such as call centres, delivery agents and IT service providers for the taking of orders, shipping, processing and maintaining customer data. Email packet notifications include marketing for company products from the Popken Fashion Group.
Before a delivery for a “purchase on account”, we use order and credit agency data to assess the risk of a default in payment. The order data (first and surname, date of birth and address) are communicated to Crif Bürgel GmbH, Friesenweg 4, Haus 12, 22763 Hamburg, for the purposes of a credit check. In the event of debt collection, we also pass your data on to a debt collection agency where applicable. We would thus like to avoid difficulties in payment transactions.
We also use the telephone number provided to make promotional pitches to inform you of our company’s interesting offers. The email address can also be used for marketing purposes if the customer has provided this in the framework of the order or when subscribing for the newsletter, and has given their permission for this. In unique cases, your address data may also be forwarded to our partner companies for marketing purposes.
The responsible entity in the sense of GDPR is Ulla Popken GmbH. Please use the contact details listed in our legal notice. Working on their behalf, Popken Fashion Services, Am Waldrand 19, 26180 Rastede, is active in the processing of data.
Objection Against the Use, Rectification or Erasure of Data
If we have personal data which is not/no longer correct or if you request that your data be erased in accordance with the provisions of GDPR or object to the use of your data for marketing purposes, you can inform of this at any time by communicating this to Ulla Popken, Am Waldrand 19, 26180 Rastede or by email to Service@popken.de. If you would not like to receive any more emails from Ulla Popken, you also have the following possibilities to deregister via the link at the end of each Ulla Popken newsletter. In every email you receive, you will also find precise instructions of how you can remove yourself from each possible list.
Export and Processing of Data in Countries Outside the European Economic Area
No exporting of personal data takes place in states outside of the EEA in connection with ordering. However, you can select functions in our online shop where your item selection is analysed and stored along with your email address in a third country. We indicate this specifically when you call up the functions.

We work together with targeting service providers for advertising and marketing purposes. The aim of this collaboration is to improve online marketing and shape it in a customer-oriented manner so that you receive offers which are relevant to you. Here of course, we adhere strictly to the applicable data protection laws.

These tags allow information about the use of our website to be recorded and transmitted to a server operated by one of our service providers and stored there. This information is assigned an anonymous number by a cookie (see above). It is not possible to identify you or any user of your computer using this anonymised number. Our service providers use this information to advertise for us on other websites, especially in the form of banner advertisements. Here, the anonymous data is in no way connected with your personal data.
