Responsible for data processing and information (data protection officer)

Purpose and legal basis of data processing

Our business is the manufacture of chemical products and their sale and sale to commercial and private customers. For this purpose, we require personal data from you, such as name, address and, if applicable, contact data, in order to be able to send you the ordered goods or requested offers and subsequently to be able to send you the invoice.

We process your personal data in compliance with the EU Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

What information do we collect when you visit our website?

The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. As far as on our sides personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) are raised, this takes place, as far as possible, always on voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Cookies: Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you desire (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for technically error-free and optimized provision of his services. As far as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behaviour) are stored, these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.

Server log files: The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files that your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • hostname of the accessing computer
  • time of the server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact form: If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you have provided there, will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail. The legality of the data processing processes carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose of data storage ceases to apply (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

SSL encryption: This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as a site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Google Web Fonts: This page uses so-called Web Fonts provided by Google to uniformly display fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required Web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, your browser must connect to Google's servers. This gives Google knowledge that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font is used by your computer.

For more information about Google Web Fonts, visit and read Google's privacy statement:

Google Maps: This page uses the Google Maps map service via an API. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

To use the features of Google Maps it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission.

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy findability of the places indicated by us on the website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

More information on how we treat user data can be found in Google's privacy policy:

In general, we do not disclose data to third parties and actors outside the European Union, unless this is directly necessary for the fulfilment of the contract (DSGVO Art. 6 paragraph 1 b) or due to legal requirements (DSGVO Art. 6 paragraph 1 c). Should you wish the ordered goods and/or payment to be sent on account, we regularly pass on the following data to third parties:

We will never contact individuals or end users unsolicited for promotional purposes. If you as a company are or enter into a long-term business relationship with us, we will only contact you or your responsible person in charge for advertising purposes if there could be a presumed interest for your company due to the circumstances known to us. Furthermore, we generally refrain from annoying bulk advertising (e.g. weekly newsletters) and will never pass on your data to uninvolved third parties for advertising purposes.

We store all collected data centrally within our business premises in Schnaittach in electronic and/or written form. Access to our central computer system and computer workstations is protected by user authentication, firewall and virus scanner.

The central electronic data storage and physical data backups are located in separate rooms with access protection. The data is not outsourced to third parties (e.g. cloud storage). Data stored locally on mobile devices such as notebooks and mobile phones is limited to e-mail correspondence directly to/with the clerk and, in the context of a long-term business relationship, to contact data and reduced order evaluations (type and number of articles ordered). Lost devices and their data can be blocked or deleted. Written documents are kept in our locked office in Schnaittach, which is protected by an alarm system.

Who has access to your data?

Written documents are separated spatially and differentiated according to department and responsibility.
