Data protection

Privacy Policy

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and comply with the data protection rules. Personal data are only collected, processed or used with the consent of the data subject, when this is necessary to fulfil a quotation or contract, or when a German law permits or stipulates this collection, processing or use. Personal data are stored to the extent required for technical purposes. The data will never be disclosed to third parties without the consent of the data subject.

The controller in terms of the General Data Protection Regulation and other national data protection laws of the EU Member States, and other data protection provisions is:

Bart Allard-Schreiner
Schloss Friedestrom Hotel
Parkstrasse 2
41541 Dormagen, Germany
Tel.: +49 (0)21335030

Data protection officer
After examining the legal requirements, the following facts apply to our business:

- There are fewer than 10 people who are "continually" involved with the processing of personal data.
- There are fewer than 20 people "generally" involved with the processing of personal data.
- Data required for customer administration (name, address, e-mail address, etc.) do not contain any "sensitive data".
- Sensitive data are only gathered voluntarily with the prior consent of the customer.
- Personal data are not used for the purpose of commercial transfer (e.g. selling data).

There is therefore no requirement for a data protection officer.

General remarks on data processing
Extent of processing of personal data: we process the personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide an operational website and our information and services. The personal data of our users is only processed with the user's consent. An exception applies in cases where obtaining consent in advance is not possible for practical reasons, and the data processing is permitted by legal provisions.

Legal basis for processing personal data
Where we obtain consent from the data subject for processing personal data, the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). When processing personal data required for concluding a contract where the contracting party is the data subject, the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b. This also applies to processing procedures which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures. Where it is necessary to process personal data to meet a legal obligation to which our business is subject, the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR. If the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. d GDPR. If the processing is required to safeguard a justified interest of our company or a third party and the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Deleting data and period of storage
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or processing will be restricted as soon as the purpose for the storage ceases to apply. Data can be stored beyond this point if there are provisions for this through the European or national legislators in EU legal regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. The data will also be subject to restricted processing or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

Collection of general information (server log files)
When you access our website, general information is collected automatically. This information (server log files) contains the type of web browser, the operating system, the domain name of your Internet service provider, etc. This does not include personal information that could identify you. This information is required in order to supply the correct website content which you have requested and is a necessary requirement of using the Internet. We carry out statistical analysis on anonymous information of this kind in order to optimise our web presence and the underlying technology. We reserve the right to have data subsequently checked (by a certified company) if we become aware of concrete evidence of illegal use.

Google Analytics is not installed!

Cartographic services from Google Maps
We use Google Maps (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) at various places on our website to display maps and to generate route maps. By using this website you consent to the collection, processing and use of the automatically recorded data and the data you have entered by Google, one of its representatives or third-party providers. For Google Maps you can view the terms of service under Google Maps/Google Earth Additional Terms of Service and the privacy policy under Google Privacy Policy. Google may also transfer the information acquired from Google Maps to third parties where this is required by law or insofar as third parties process this data on behalf of Google. It cannot be guaranteed that Google will not link your IP address to other Google data. It is technically possible that Google could identify at least some users based on the data obtained. We have no influence on whether personal data and personality profiles of the users of Google's websites are processed for other purposes. You have the option of deactivating the Google Maps service through a simple procedure and therefore preventing your data being transferred to Google. To do this, deactivate JavaScript in your browser. However, we draw your attention to the fact that, in this case, you will not be able to use the map function. Further explanation of this: we have a link from this page to Google Maps. The link works via an iframe (= an HTML element. This can be embedded anywhere in a web page). We make use of the Google Maps service "Share or embed map". Please read Google's notes on data protection: - As soon as you click on the map you are using Google Maps data. Please note that, by using Google Maps, you consent to the collection, processing and use of the data which Google records automatically. The Terms of Service of Google Maps is available at:
