2. Purposes of the processing

2.1 Consent (Art. 6 Par. 1a GDPR)

Personal data is processed for certain purposes (e.g. sending our newsletter by e-mail after clicking the confirmation link that is emailed to you, transmission to other third parties, evaluation of data for marketing purposes) if you have provided your consent.

2.2 Contractual or pre-contractual obligations (Art. 6 Par. 1b GDPR)

We process personal data that is necessary to execute a contract with you as the contracting party or to perform pre-contractual measures after you have made an enquiry, e.g. via our website contact form. The purposes of the data processing depend on the specific contract (e.g. purchase, delivery, employment contract) and may also include evaluations, consulting as well as the performance of other actions. We process the personal data of employees for the purposes of the employment relationship if this is required to reach a decision on establishing an employment relationship or after establishing the employment relationship, for its implementation or termination, or to exercise or comply with legal rights and obligations.

2.3 Legal requirements (Art. 6 Par. 1c GDPR)

Data processing takes place based on legal obligations, e.g. for the purposes of fraud prevention and the prevention of money laundering, to meet control and reporting obligations for tax purposes and to provide information to authorities.

2.4 Balance of interests (Art. 6 Par. 1f GDPR)

To safeguard our legitimate interests or those of third parties, data processing also takes place for certain purposes after the prior balancing of interests, e.g. to ensure domiciliary rights, protect legal claims, investigate criminal offences, determine default risks, optimise product development, optimise customer contact for advertising purposes, optimise requirements planning or to ensure data security.

3. Additional data processing as part of the use of the website

3.1 Contact form

We will only use the data collected by our contact form to process enquiries that are received using the contact form. The collected data is erased after the enquiry is processed.

3.2 Recall service

We will only use the data collected by our recall form to process enquiries that are received using the form. The collected data is erased within six months of the enquiry being processed.

3.3 Registration on the website

You can register on our website in order to use additional functions on our website. We use the data entered by you only for the purpose of using the respective offer or service for which you have registered. For important changes, such as the scope of the offer or technically necessary changes, we use the e-mail address provided during registration to contact you in this way.

3.4 Newsletter

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter.
To ensure that the newsletter is sent by mutual agreement, we use a double opt-in procedure. This enables the potential recipient to be included in a distribution list. The user then receives a confirmation e-mail to confirm the registration in a legally binding manner. The address will only be actively included in the distribution list once confirmation is received.
We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and offers.

CleverReach is used as the newsletter software. Your data will be sent to CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede, Germany (CleverReach for short). The newsletters contain a so-called ‘web-beacon’, i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the CleverReach server when the newsletter is opened. As part of this retrieval, technical information, such as information on the browser and your system as well as your IP address and time of retrieval, is initially collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of their access locations (which can be determined by means of the IP address) or the access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether e-mails are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. CleverReach is prohibited from selling your data and using it for purposes other than for sending newsletters. CleverReach is a German, certified provider that was selected according to the requirements of the Data Protection Basic Regulation and the Federal Data Protection Act. In addition, there is an agreement on commissioned data processing.

Your consent to the storage of your data, your e-mail address and its use for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time, e.g. by using the ‘Unsubscribe’ link in the newsletter. We will immediately erase your data in connection with the newsletter.

3.5.5 Statistics cookie: Google Analytics, Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

If you select statistics cookies, you grant us permission to use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as ‘Google’, on our site. We have concluded a corresponding contract for order processing with Google. Google Analytics uses 'cookies', text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated about your use of this website by the cookie is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it is also stored. Google provides its assurance that, if IP anonymisation is enabled for this website, Google will abbreviate your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other states party to the agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA (where it is then abbreviated) in exceptional cases. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of this website to assess your use of the website in order to compile reports on the website activities and to provide additional services to the website operator related to the use of the website and the Internet. Google assures that the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data. You can prevent cookies from being stored by adjusting your browser software accordingly; however, please note that, in this case, you will not be able to use all of the functions on this website. Moreover, you can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie in relation to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) and its transmission to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google. For this, download and install the browser add-on available from the following link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
More information is available at https://marketingplatform.google.com/intl/en_uk/about/ (general information on Google Analytics and data privacy).
Please note that, on this website, Google Analytics has been extended by the gat._anonymizeIp() code to ensure the anonymised recording of IP addresses (IP masking).

We use the online ‘Google AdWords’ advertising program and the conversion tracking function of Google AdWords. Google conversion tracking is an analytics service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). When you click on an ad delivered by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is placed on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and therefore cannot be used to identify you personally. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can tell that you clicked on the ad and were directed to that page. Each Google AdWords customer has a different cookie. This means it is not possible to track cookies via websites of other AdWords customers. The information collected by means of the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers can see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were directed to a page containing a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that enables them to identify users personally. If you do not want to participate in conversion tracking, you can opt out of this use and prevent cookies from being installed by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software (deactivation option). You will not then be included in the conversion tracking statistics. Further information and Google’s Privacy Policy are available at:

Other recipients of personal data may also include public bodies, banks and financial services institutions, lawyers and accountants or credit agencies.

5. Transmission to a third country or an international organisation

Data will only be transferred to third countries if, for example, this is necessary for the performance of a contract or is required by law or if you have given us your consent. In addition, it cannot be ruled out that, in rare cases, an IT service provider from a third country (e.g. the USA) could obtain access to your personal data during the maintenance of IT components. Personal data is otherwise not transmitted to third countries or an international organisation.

6. Duration of the data storage

We store the personal data for the duration of the contractual relationship, while the statutory limitation periods generally amount to three years. Various archiving and documentation obligations exist, e.g. from the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Tax Code (AO), which can extend to up to ten years.

10. Obligation to provide data

You must provide us with the personal data that is required to establish, execute and terminate a contract or that we are required to collect by law. If you do not provide us with the necessary information and documents, we are not permitted to establish or continue your requested business relationship.

11. Automated decision-making in specific cases

In principle, we do not use automated decision-making to establish and execute the business relationship. If we use this process in certain individual cases, we will inform you separately if this is required by law.

12. Profiling

In some cases, we process your data automatically with the aim of evaluating certain personal aspects (profiling), e.g. evaluation of targeted customer contact, tailored advertising, including market and opinion research as well as for scoring and rating. For example, data on payment behaviour (e.g. transactions, balances) and criteria such as industry affiliation and experiences from the previous business relationship may flow into the evaluation.

13. Categories of personal data

We process the following categories of personal data, for example: Personal master data, contract master data, contract implementation and termination data, order data, data to meet legal obligations, creditworthiness data, scoring/rating data, advertising and sales data, data on your use of our telemedia offers (e.g. time of accessing our website, apps or newsletter, clicked webpages or entries) as well as other data that is comparable to the aforementioned categories.

14. Data sources

We process data that we have received as part of our business relationship as well as data that has been lawfully transmitted to us from other third parties.

Information on your right of objection in accordance with Art. 21 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Individual right of objection

You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data, which takes place on the basis of Article 6 (1e) of the GDPR (data processing in the public interest) and Article 6 (1f) of the GDPR (data processing based on a balance of interests), for reasons that arise for your specific situation at any time; this also applies to any profiling that takes place based on this provision. If you submit an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we are able to provide evidence of compelling legitimate grounds for the processing, which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, enforce or defend against legal claims.

Right of objection against data processing for the purposes of direct advertising

We process your personal data for the purposes of direct advertising. You are entitled to object to the processing of your personal data for purposes of this kind of advertising at any time; this also applies to profiling if this is connected with this kind of direct advertising. If you object to the processing for the purposes of direct advertising, we will no longer process your data for these purposes.
