V. Use of cookies

HAUSER & WIRTH utilizes so-called “cookies” on its Website, i.e. small files containing text information that are placed on your hard drive (“Cookies”) whenever you call up the Website. The Cookie will be used to store certain information about the specific terminal device you are using. This does not mean, however, that we will obtain direct knowledge of your identity in the process.

One reason we use Cookies is to make the navigation and usage of our Website as user-friendly as possible. We require such Cookies to be able to identify and authorize you during your entire visit after you have successfully logged in. Said Cookies will be automatically erased from your hard drive once the browser session comes to an end (“Session Cookies”).

In addition, we utilize Cookies that will remain on your hard drive for a certain period also after the browser session is over (“Persistent Cookies”). These Cookies make it easier for you to use our Website and our services and to purchase our goods, e.g. by storing certain inputs and settings so that you will not have to constantly repeat them. Cookies also allow us to collect statistics on the usage of our Website while helping us to optimize our offering and to personalize our web pages and our goods and services for your benefit (also see Section VI of the present Privacy Policy). Persistent Cookies are stored on your hard drive and then erased by the browser after a predefined time, which may vary from Cookie to Cookie. The Cookies we use may also be sourced from third-party providers (Third-Party Cookies), given that we rely on a number of advertising partners to help us make our online offers and web pages more appealing to you (also see Section VI of the present Privacy Policy).

The data processed by the Cookies are required for the aforementioned purposes in order to allow us to pursue our legitimate interests and to allow third parties to purse their legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f) of the GDPR.

We will notify you concerning our use of Cookies when you (first) visit our Website. You may at any time block the use of Cookies with effect for the future by erasing the Cookies and by blocking the acceptance of Cookies in your browser. You can also configure your browser such that you will be alerted before Cookies are placed on it and will have the option to either accept the Cookies in individual cases, to rule out the storage of Cookies for certain cases or to rule it out as a general rule. Finally, you can activate the automatic erasure of Cookies following closure of your browser. If you change your browser settings in these ways, you may not be able to benefit from all the features of our Website, however. For further information on these setting changes, please see www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.

VI. Deployment of analytics and tracking technologies

We use the analytics and tracking technologies, respectively technologies offered by third-party-provider, described below; we do so on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f) of the GDPR for the following purposes (among others):

• To perform data analyses;
• To collect statistics on the use of our Website and to evaluate them so as to optimize our offering;
• To enhance and manage our offering on an ongoing basis;
• To optimize our advertising measures and quantify their success; and
• To provide you with advertising.

These are legitimate interests within the meaning of the aforementioned statutory provision.

1. Google Analytics

In order to configure our web pages as needed and to optimize them on an ongoing basis, we use Google Analytics, an advertising analysis service offered by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”)). This service generates pseudonymized usage profiles and uses Cookies (see Section V of this Privacy Statement). The information about your use of our Website generated by the relevant Cookie (e.g. your IP address, browser type/version, operating system used, referring URL, time of the server request) is transferred to a Google server located in the United States and stored there.

Google has been certified under the Privacy Shield Framework, meaning that an adequate level of data protection is in place in accordance with the corresponding Implementing Decision of the European Commission. The certificate is available online for inspection under https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI. However, your IP address will first be shortened on our Website by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other states signatory to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the Unites States and shortened there.

Google will use this information on our behalf in order to analyze your usage of our Website, to compile reports on Website activities for us, and to provide us with other services relating to Website and internet usage. In certain cases, this information may also be transferred to third parties, insofar as this is mandated by the law or insofar as third parties have been commissioned with processing the data. Google will not merge your IP address with other data held by Google.

You can block the storage of the relevant Cookie in your browser by configuring your browser settings accordingly. Please be advised, however, that this may prevent you from using all the functions of our Website to their full extent.

In addition, you can prevent Google from recording the data generated by the Cookie regarding your usage of the Website (including your IP address) and from processing such data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

For further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics, please navigate to the “Help” section of Google Analytics via the following link: http://google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

2. Google AdWords Conversion Tracking

In order to collect statistics on the use of our Website and in order to optimize our Website for your benefit, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. This is a service offered by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). To this end, Google places a Cookie (see Section V of this Privacy Statement) on your computer whenever you reach our Website by way of a Google Ad. These Cookies become invalid after 30 days and cannot be used to identify you personally. If you visit one of our web pages and assuming the Cookie has not yet expired, both we and Google will be able to see that you clicked on the ad and that it referred you to our site. Each AdWords customer receives a different Cookie, so that the Cookies cannot be tracked across the websites of multiple AdWords customers.

Google will use this information on our behalf to generate visitor statistics for our Website. We will use these visitor statistics to determine the total number of users referred to us by AdWords advertisements and to optimize our AdWords advertising efforts accordingly. This information may also be transferred to third parties insofar as this is mandated by law or insofar as third parties process these data on a commissioned basis. Neither we nor any other advertising customers of Google AdWords will receive information from Google that allows you to be personally identified.

In the process, Google will place a Cookie on your computer (see Section V of this Privacy Statement) insofar as you use certain Google services or visit certain websites forming part of the Google content network. These Cookies cannot be used to identify you personally.

The information generated by the Cookie so placed on your computer concerning your usage of our Website (including your IP address) will be transferred to a Google server located in the United States and stored there. As explained above, Google has been certified under the Privacy Shield Framework, meaning that an adequate level of data protection is in place in accordance with the corresponding Implementing Decision of the European Commission. The certificate is available online for inspection under: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI. However, your IP address will first be shortened on our Website by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other states signatory to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the United States and shortened there.

You can prevent the storage of these Cookies in your browser by configuring your browser settings accordingly. Please be advised, however, that this may prevent you from using all the functions of our Website to their full extent.

Furthermore, you can object against interest-based advertising from Google. To do this, you must call up www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the internet browsers you use and then make the desired setting changes.

For further information on Google’s data privacy policy, please see the following links: http://google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy and https://www.google.com/privacy/ads/.

3. Google Tag Manager

We also use Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed by way of a user interface. Tags are small code elements the purpose of which includes measuring traffic and visitor behavior. Google Tag Manager merely implements such tags. This does not cause any Cookies to be placed, meaning that no Personal Data will be recorded. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags which may themselves record data under certain circumstances. Google Tag Manager does not access these data, however. Once the deactivation function has been selected at the domain or Cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags implemented by Google Tag Manager.

VII. Use of social plug-ins

Our Website makes use of the so-called “social plug-ins” of social networks, e.g. Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, WeChat and Sina Weibo (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, WeChat and Sina Weibo being collectively referred to hereinbelow as “Social Networks” and the corresponding plug-ins as “Plug-ins”). With these Plug-ins, we offer you the option to interact with the Social Networks and with other users, which allows us to improve our offering and to make it more appealing to you, while at the same time raising awareness of our enterprise. The legal basis for the use of social Plug-ins is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f) of the GDPR. Responsibility for ensuring data protection-compliant operations lies with the respective provider.

We use the Plug-ins of the Facebook network, such as the “Like” button. These Plug-ins are offered and operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Facebook”), and are clearly designated by the Facebook logo. In addition, we utilize Plug-ins of the Instagram service, operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Instagram”). These Plug-ins are designated by the Instagram logo. We also use the Plug-ins of the YouTube network, which is owned by Google Inc., San Bruno, California, USA (“YouTube”), whereby the YouTube logo serves as the designator. Our Website also features Plug-ins which are integrated, offered, and operated by the Twitter service owned by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA (“Twitter”), these Plug-ins are designated by the Twitter logo or the suffix “Tweet.” We furthermore utilize the Plug-ins of the WeChat network, which is offered and operated (for users in the EEA) by Tencent International Service Europe B.V., a Dutch company with its registered office in 26.04 on the 26th floor of Amstelplein 54, 1096 BC Amsterdam, Netherlands, and (for users outside the EEA, Switzerland or the People’s Republic of China (excluding Taiwan, Hong Kong and Makau) Tencent International Service Pte. Ltd., a company based in Singapore at 10 Anson Road, #21-07 International Plaza, Singapore 079903 (“WeChat”); these Plug-ins are designated by the WeChat logo. Finally, we utilize the Plug-ins of the Sina Weibo network operated by Sina Corporation, 37F, Jin Mao Tower, 88 Century Boulevard, Pudong New District, Beijing NEJ 00000, China (“Sina Weibo”), which are designated by the Sina Weibo logo.

Whenever you access a web page of ours that contains this type of Plug-in, your browser will establish a direct connection to the server of the respective Social Network. The content of the Plug-in will be transferred directly to your browser from the corresponding Social Network and will be integrated into the Website without our being able to exercise any control over said content.

Regardless of whether you maintain a user account with a Social Network or whether you have logged on to the respective Social Network, web pages that contain Plug-ins from that Social Network will transfer information to the corresponding Social Network in the USA, Singapore or China, where this information will be stored. This will include the type and version of your operating system and browser, respectively, as well as your IP address and the domain name and/or date stamp, respectively time stamp, associated with your visit. Each time the web page is called up, the respective Social Network will deposit a Cookie containing an identifier that will remain valid for two years. Since your browser automatically co-transmits this Cookie each time a connection is established with a server, the corresponding Social Network fundamentally would be able to generate a profile of the online web pages called up by the user associated with the identifier. If you have logged on to the respective Social Network at the time, said Social Network will be able to match up the profile to the user account you maintain with that Social Network and thus to you personally. But even if you are not logged in to the respective Social Network when you use our Website, this will not preclude such a match-up from occurring, for example when you log in with the corresponding Social Network at some later time.

Whenever you interact with these Plug-ins, e.g. by activating the “Like” or “Tweet” button or by posting a comment, the corresponding information will be sent from your browser directly to the corresponding Social Network and stored there, without our being able to exert any influence in this regard. The information will also be published on the Social Network and will be displayed to your contacts on said network.

The respective Social Network may use the information thus obtained for advertising purposes, to perform market research, and to configure its web pages as needed. To this end, the Social Network will generate profiles of your usage, interests, and relationships, e.g. in order to analyze your usage of our Website in connection with the ads shown to you on the Social Network, to inform other users of the Social Network about your activities on our Website, and to provide additional services associated with usage of the Social Network. Please note that we do not obtain any precise knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its usage by the Social Network. For more detailed information on the nature, purposes, and scope of the subsequent processing and usage of your data by the respective Social Network, please consult the Privacy Policy of each Social Network:

For Facebook: http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php;
For Instagram: https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875?helpref=page_content;
For YouTube: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de;

For WeChat: https://www.wechat.com/en/privacy_policy.html; and
For Sina Weibo: https://www.whatsonweibo.com/privacy-policy/.

The above links will also guide you to additional information on your relevant rights and configuration options when it comes to protecting your privacy. Facebook/Instagram, YouTube/Google, and Twitter are certified under the Privacy Shield Framework, meaning that an adequate level of data protection is in place in accordance with the corresponding Implementing Decision of the European Commission. The certificates are available online for inspection here:

For Facebook/Instagram: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC.
For YouTube/Google: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI
For Twitter: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TORzAAO&status=Active

If you, as the user of a Social Network, wish to prevent the corresponding Social Network from collecting information regarding you during your visit to our Website, you can log out of that Social Network when commencing your visit to the Website, erase the corresponding Social Network’s cookie (if one exists) from your browser, and select the “Block Third-Party Cookies” function on your browser. In this case, your browser will not transfer any Cookies to the servers in the event of embedded content of other providers. Note, however, that this configuration, besides blocking the Plug-ins, may also cause certain functions extending across webpages to become unavailable.

MailChimp offers comprehensive opportunities to analyze how newsletters are opened and used. In order to evaluate user behavior, the emails sent out include so-called web beacons, respectively tracking pixels, which are one-pixel image files that are stored on our Website. In order to perform analyses, we and/or MailChimp will merge the data collected from you and the web beacons with your email address and an individual ID. The links sent in the newsletter also include this ID. We will use the data obtained in this way to create a user profile to allow us to customize the newsletter to your personal interests. In the process, we will capture the time at which you read our newsletters, on which links you click in the newsletters, and will deduce your personal interests from this conduct. We will merge these data with the actions you have taken on our Website. MailChimp can by its own admission also use this data to enhance or improve its own services, e.g. to technically enhance the dispatch procedure and display of the newsletter or for commercial purposes to be able to determine which countries the recipients are from. However, MailChimp will not use the data of our newsletter recipients to contact them itself or forward it to third parties.

You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see the Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights section below), we will disclose to you:

· The categories of personal information we collected about you;
· The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you;
· Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information;
· The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information;
· The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request); and
· If we sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing:
· sales, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient purchased; and
· disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see the Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights section below), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

1. Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, or otherwise perform our contract with you;

2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities;

3. Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality;

4. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law;

5. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.);

6. Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent;

7. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us;

8. Comply with a legal obligation; or

9. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

· Calling us at 1-866-897-9942;
· Emailing us at tim@hauserwirrth.com or
· Visiting website account login to manage subscription preferences manually: https://www.hauserwirth.com/log-in

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative, and describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

For instructions on exercising sale opt-out rights, see the Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights section below.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Personal Information Sales

We do not sell your personal information at any time.

Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.

Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

· Deny you goods or services;
· Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties;
· Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services; or
· Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time. We do not currently provide any financial incentives.
