We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Therefore, we process your personal data always and of course in accordance with the legal data protection obligations. We have appointed a qualified and reliable external Data Protection Officer. The external data protection officer is provided by the UIMC Dr. Voßbein GmbH & Co KG.

In the following, we would like to inform you about the processing of personal data.

Collection and Processing of Personal Data

You can use our website without disclosing your identity generally. Should we request your personal data (such as name, address or email address) on our website, e.g. in a contact form or during registration / login, you can provide your personal data voluntarily. The provided information is used for our own business purposes (such as sending the requested information).

In case you have any questions, we offer you the option to get in touch with us via the contact form provided on our website. The fields marked as mandatory have to be filled in so that we can answer your request. Additional information may be provided voluntarily. The processing of data for the purpose of making contact with us takes place in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. a GDPR on the basis of your voluntary consent.

The collected personal data resulting of the use of the contact form will be deleted after the completion of your request and after expiry of the retention periods according to tax law and commercial law.

Once granted consent – e.g. for the purpose of receiving a newsletter or other interesting information of our company – can be withdrawn anytime with effect for the future, without giving any reasons. For this purpose, you can use the abovementioned contact form or any other way stated within the newsletter.

As a contractual partner of your company, we process the personal data of your employees, with whom we are in contact due to the business relationship, based on our legitimate interests with regards to an optimal customer service, preparation of offers and performance of the contracts on the basis of Art. 6 para 1 lit. f GDPR.

We process personal data of natural persons (e.g. a sole trader or other individuals such as self-employed persons) to carry out pre-contractual measures and fulfil contracts. Legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

Such a relationship arises, for example, when you contact us to get information about us or our products, or if you as a customer use the extranet login. In such cases, we will use your personal information to process your specific request.

Information on data processing according to Articles 13 and 14 GDPR customer data processing (B2B)

We hereby inform you about the processing of your personal data (personal data are all data that refer to you as a natural person):

Some of your personal data will be passed on to external service providers (e.g. tax consultants, legal advisors). In some cases, external IT service providers (in the context of order data processing in accordance with Article 28 GDPR) can access your data. Here, the service providers act in accordance with instructions, which was ensured by corresponding contracts. Some of these service providers are based outside the EU/EEA; those service providers ensure an adequate level of data protection through the conclusion of EU standard contract clauses / through binding corporate rules / through the Privacy Shield. You have the possibility to receive a copy of these regulations at any time.

Retention and deletion of data

Furthermore, we use plug-ins of other service providers to some extent on our website; please find details below.

Cookies and Plugins

This site uses “Cookies”. Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow for an analysis of the use of the website and automatically recognise you on your next visit to this website. You can prevent the installation of cookies by managing the settings in the cookie consent or in your browser accordingly. You can also withdraw your consent at any time in the settings [link into the Cookie settings] of the cookie consent. However, as a consequence, you might not be able to use some of the functions of this website.


We offer you the display of maps and the view of direction by means of Google Maps so that you can find us easily based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). Google Maps is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. These sites will be made visible accordingly. When you visit a webpage, on which GoogleMaps is embedded into our website, a connection to the servers of Google is established and your IP address and your browser data are transferred to Google. Google may transfer the data to third parties, e.g. US authorities, if this is required by law, or where third parties process the data on behalf of Google. The Terms of Use of Google Maps can be found at

Web analysis with Google Analytics

If you consented to the use of tracking cookies acc. to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR upon visiting our website, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google LLC. (“Google”), based on your consent. Google Analytics uses so-called Cookies, text files that will be stored on your computer and allow an analysis of the use of the website. The information about the use of the website produced through Cookies (including your shortened IP address) is transferred and retained on a Google server in the US for the duration of 26 months. Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website, to prepare reports of website activities for the website provider and to deliver other services connected with the use of the website and the Internet. Additionally, Google may transfer this information to Third Parties, e.g. US authorities, if it is legally required to do so or if Third Parties process these data on request of Google. In case you consented to the use of tracking cookies, but wish to withdraw your consent at a later point in time, you can do so by managing your cookie settings on our website accordingly. Alternatively, you could instal a so-called add-on in your browser. The following link leads you to the add-on on the site of Google:

Conversion tracking by means of Google Ads

If you consent to the use of tracking cookies, this website will use Google Ads from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. We use Google Ads Conversion to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising materials (so-called Google Ads) on external websites. We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. We are therefore interested in displaying advertisements that are of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs. These advertising materials are delivered by Google via so-called “ad servers”. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, which can be used to measure certain parameters for measuring success, such as displaying the advertisements or clicks by the users. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads stores a cookie on your device. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) as well as the information about a possible revocation (marking that the user no longer wants to be targeted) are usually stored as analysis values.

These cookies allow Google to recognise your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer’s website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognise that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page (visit action evaluation). Each Ads customer is assigned a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of Ads customers. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the advertising measures mentioned above. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations, we can identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising materials, in particular we cannot identify the users on the basis of this information. By integrating Ads Conversion, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an ad from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will find out and store your IP address.

Google may transfer this data to third parties, e.g. US authorities, if required to do so by law, or if third parties process this data on Google’s behalf. For more information on how user data is handled, please refer to Google’s privacy policy at: . If you decide to withdraw your consent at a later date after your consent has been given, you can deactivate personalised advertising from Google in your browser settings for advertising. These settings are stored in your Google Account (if you’re signed in) or in the browser (if you’re not signed in). We also enable you to change your cookie settings in the first section of this cookie policy. Alternatively, you can install a browser plug-in to disable personalised advertising. This can be found at


Our website links to the LinkedIn website. The website is operated by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Irland. Instead of using plug-ins, we only link to LinkedIn. Therefore, your personal data will not be automatically transferred to LinkedIn when you visit our website. When merely linking to the LinkedIn website, LinkedIn only processes your personal data if you actively click on the LinkedIn button. LinkedIn may transfer the data to third parties, e.g. US authorities, if this is required by law, or where third parties process the data on behalf of LinkedIn. We have no influence on the type and scope of your personal data processed by LinkedIn.

Further information on the processing of your data can be found in LinkedIn’s data protection policy at: [external page].


Our website links to the YouTube website. The site is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, a subsidiary of Google LLC.

For data protection reasons, we decided to only create a link to this page instead of using YouTube plug-ins. We therefore do not process any of your personal data in this regard, and YouTube can therefore not automatically collect your personal data when you visit our website, provided that you are logged out of your YouTube account when you visit our website. This technical solution enables you to decide whether and when you transmit personal data to YouTube. Your browser will only connect to the YouTube servers and transmit your user data to YouTube if you actively click on the YouTube button. YouTube may transfer the data to third parties, e.g. US authorities, if this is required by law, or where third parties process the data on behalf of YouTube. We have no influence on the type and scope of your data processed by YouTube in that case.

You can find further information on the processing of your user data in YouTube’s privacy policy at:

Google reCAPTCHA

In certain cases, we use the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google LLC on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR (legitimate interest) to ensure sufficient data security when submitting forms. This is to distinguish whether the input is made by a natural person or whether the input is abusive, i.e. is machine processed or made by automated processing. When you visit one of our webpages, into which reCAPTCHA is embedded, your personal data such as your IP address, screen and window resolution, language settings in the browser, time zone, installed browser plugins and possibly other data needed by Google for reCAPTCHA are transferred to Google. Google wird diese Informationen gegebenenfalls an Dritte, z. B. US-Behörden, übertragen, sofern dies gesetzlich vorgeschrieben ist, oder soweit Dritte diese Daten im Auftrag von Google verarbeiten. Google’s privacy policy applies regarding the use of these data. For more information about the privacy policies of Google LLC, see or

Google Tag Manager

The operator of this website uses the Google Tag Manager of Google LLC. A tag is a JavaScript snippet that sends information to third parties, such as Google. Google Tag Manager is a tool that allows website owners to manage marketing tags through the Google Tag Manager interface. The Google Tag Manager manages tags from Google (such as the Google Analytics Tag), but also supports third-party tags. The software solution Google Tag Manager itself, which implements the tags, is a domain without cookies. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which may collect data. The Google Tag Manager does not access this data, but passes the data through the tag to the respective provider of the respective tag used (Google Ads and Google Analytics).

For information about how you can refuse the processing of your personal information by the respective tags, see the section of each tag listed in this privacy policy.
