3 Collection of personal data when visiting our website

(1) In the case of mere informational use of the website, i.e. if you do not log in to use the website, register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the personal data, which your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the enquiry
  • Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (concrete page)
  • Access Status/HTTP Status Code
  • Data volume transmitted in each case
  • Website from which the request comes
  • Browser
  • Operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of the browser software

The storage period is 14 days. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO; our legitimate interest is to ensure the stability and security of our systems.

(2) In addition to the aforementioned data, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk in relation to the browser you are using and which provide certain information to the body that sets the cookie.

(3) Use of cookies:

a) This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality are explained below:

  • Transient cookies (see point b)
  • Persistent cookies (see point c)

b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include in particular the session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint session. This allows your computer to be recognised when you return to the website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a predefined period of time, which may differ depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.

d) You can configure your browser settings according to your preferences and, for example, refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies. However, this may prevent you from using all the functions of this website.

We use a Consent Manager (Cookie Notice Banner) to provide legally compliant information and to request your preferences.

This is to comply with legal obligations to provide evidence, such as storing consent or if you do not consent, non-consent.

4. Social media and service integration

We use the third-party services listed below on our website.
It is possible that users' data may also be processed outside the European Union. This could result in risks for users because, for example, it may be more difficult to enforce their rights. All non-European processors have committed to comply with EU data protection standards.
Furthermore, user data may be processed for analysis purposes. In this way, profiles can be created from the user behaviour and the interests of the users derived from it. These profiles can be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are likely to match users' interests. For these purposes, cookies may be stored on the users' computers, through which the usage behaviour, the interests of the users and/or also the length of stay are stored.
In the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the respective providers. Only the providers have access to the relevant data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide concrete information.


This website uses Matomo if you have given your consent in the Consent Manager.  Matomo is an open source software tool for web analysis. Web analysis is the collection, collation and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis tool collects, among other things, data on which website a data subject came to a website from (so-called referrer), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the cost-benefit of internet advertising.
The software is operated on the server of the controller and the log files, which are sensitive in terms of data protection law, are stored exclusively on this server.
The purpose of the Matomo component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. The responsible for data processing uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of this website in order to compile online reports showing the activities on our websites.
Matomo sets a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. Cookies have already been explained above. The setting of the cookie enables us to analyse the use of our website. Every time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, the internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the Matomo component to transmit data to our server for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical procedure, we obtain knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which we use, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks.
By means of the cookie, personal information, for example the access time, the place from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website are stored. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to our server. This personal data is stored by us. We do not transmit this personal data to third parties.
The legal basis for data processing is § 15 TMG para. 3 3 together with Art. 5 para. 3 of the e-Privacy Directive 2002/58/EC. You grant us the necessary consent by selecting the opt-in "Statistics" on the cookie notice banner, if applicable.
Further information and Matomo's applicable privacy policy can be found at the following link:



In our Youtube Channel linked on our website, we present, among other things, our own videos. The service provider is Google Ireland Limited (incorporated and operated under the laws of Ireland) (registration number: 368047), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

5. Use of functions on our website

In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use if you are interested. This usually requires you to provide further personal data, which we use to provide the respective service. If additional voluntary information is possible, this is marked accordingly.

Contact form and enquiry form
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you have provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry.
This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO, insofar as your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective handling of the enquiries addressed to us ( Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO) or on your consent ( Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO) if this has been requested.
The data you enter in the contact form will be stored by us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your enquiry). Mandatory legal regulations - in particular storage periods - remain unaffected.

6. Job applications

The responsible for data processing collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. This data is processed on the basis of § 26 para. 1 sentence 1 BDSG (decision on the establishment of an employment relationship).
If the responsible for data processing does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application files will be automatically deleted five months after receipt of the application, unless there are other legitimate interests to the contrary by the responsible for data processing. Other legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 f may, for example, constitute a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

7. Disclosure of data

  • Your personal data will only be disclosed to third parties
  • if you have given your express consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 a DS-GVO
  • if the disclosure is necessary for the fulfilment of contractual obligations according to Art. 6 para. 1 b DS-GVO
  • if we are legally obliged to disclose the data within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 c DS-GVO
  • if the disclosure of the data is in the public interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 e DS-GVO or
  • if the disclosure of the data is necessary in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f DS-GVO to protect our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, unless your interests in the protection of your data prevail

8. Recipient categories

Order processing

We use IT service providers who work exclusively on our behalf and are bound by instructions (order processing) to provide the service offered, e.g. hosting this website or operating our IT. They have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly inspected.

Third-party recipient

In order to process your requests satisfactorily, we may need to transmit your personal data to third party recipients. In this case, third party recipients are exclusively our subsidiaries with their registered office in Kiel.



ZÖLLNER Security GmbH

9. Duration of storage for personal data

Your data will be stored by us for as long as it is needed for the respective purposes on which the processing is based. Furthermore, we only store data if we are legally obliged to do so, e.g. due to legal storage obligations.

10    Liability for contents

The contents of our pages were created with the greatest care. However, we cannot assume any liability for the correctness, completeness and actuality of the contents. As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on these pages in accordance with general legislation according to § 7 para. 1 TMG. According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, we are not obliged as a service provider to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general laws remain hereby unaffected. However, liability in this respect is only possible from the time of knowledge of a concrete infringement. If we become aware of any such infringements, we will remove this content immediately.

11. Liability for links

Our pages may contain links to external third-party websites over whose content we have no control. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for these external contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is responsible for the content of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognisable at the time of linking. However, a permanent control of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete indications of a violation of the law. If we become aware of any infringements of the law, we will remove such links immediately.

12.  Data protection

We secure our website and other systems through appropriate technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons. However, despite regular checks, complete protection against all hazards is not possible.
Our website uses the industry standard SSL/TLS (Secure Sockets Layer) for encryption. This ensures the confidentiality of your personal information over the internet. You can tell whether an encrypted transmission is taking place by the closed key/lock symbol in your browser display. We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is technically not possible.
