Privacy Policy

We are pleased that you are interested in our website. Protecting your privacy is very important to us. In the following, we will provide you with comprehensive information on how your data are treated.

Duty to provide information in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation

Data protection is particularly important to us. As of May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply in all EU member states. With the following information, we would like to give you an overview of how we process your personal data. Even though data protection is not new to us, there are still some new provisions that have prompted us to provide this information.

Important: You do not have to do anything.

This information is intended to explain your rights as a data subject with regard to data protection. Nothing will change in your existing contracts with us. As was already the case in the past, we only use your data to conclude and fulfill contracts with you as our customer, to be able to fulfill the warranty and to implement your wishes and requirements.
The data protection laws oblige us to provide you with some information on data protection.

a. Contract initiation, support and fulfillment (Art. 6 para. 1 b GDPR).
In order to prepare and execute a contract with you (including provision of the service or delivery and invoicing), we require personal data from you. This includes, for example, your name and address as well as data for the payment of invoices. We may process this data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1b GDPR.
There are also statutory retention periods that we must comply with. The legal basis for this is e.g. § 257 HGB, § 147 AO on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 c GDPR.

b. Data processing for legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR)
The legislator expressly allows us to process further data for our legitimate interests. We do this, among other things, to improve and develop services and products in order to be able to offer you a customized approach with tailor-made offers and products.

- Defense in legal disputes
- Investigation of criminal offenses

As a company, we are subject to various legal and official obligations (e.g. tax laws, German Commercial Code) that make it necessary to process your data in order to comply with the law.

Do we pass the data on to other parties?

Internally, i.e. within our company, we pass on the data to those persons who need it to fulfill contractual and legal obligations. This also applies to service providers and vicarious agents that we use in order to carry out our tasks properly. We will only pass on your data to third parties if we have a clear legal basis for doing so, if statutory provisions require this, if you have given your consent or if we are otherwise authorized to do so.

The following recipients may receive data from us: Shipping service providers, debt collection service providers, financial and tax authorities, police and investigating authorities (with existing legal basis), official bodies (if transmission is required by law), insurance companies, banks and credit institutions (payment processing), market partners, auditors, and Internet agencies, opinion research institutes, printing service providers, credit agencies, lawyers, auditors.
Transfers that we are legally obliged to make are made in accordance with the applicable legal provisions.

Transfers on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR (legitimate interests of the controller) may only take place if this is necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests or those of third parties in accordance with the GDPR, and our data protection officer will also check whether your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms do not prevail. If this is the case, the data will remain with us and will not be passed on.

How long do we store the data?

Your data will be processed for the first time from the time it is collected, insofar as you or a third party provide it to us. We delete your personal data when the contractual relationship with you has ended, all mutual claims have been fulfilled and there are no other statutory retention obligations or statutory justifications for the storage. These include retention obligations under the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO). We will delete your personal data at the latest after expiry of the statutory retention obligations, which is usually 10 years after the end of the contract.

We process data on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1a GDPR)
If you have given us your consent to process your data for specific purposes (e.g. for marketing purposes), this processing is lawful. You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future.

Data is not currently transferred to third countries.
