PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA
- Informative visit to our website
Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data (so-called server log files) and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. The following data is collected:
- Visited website
- Date and time at the time of access
- Amount of data sent in bytes
- Source/reference from which you reached the page (referrer URL)
- Browser used
- Operating system used
- IP address used
- Request details and destination address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in optimising our website according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The website uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Both session cookies and permanent cookies are used on our site. Session cookies are temporary cookies that are stored in the user’s internet browser until the browser window is closed and the session cookies are deleted. Persistent cookies are used for repeat visits and are stored in the user’s browser for a period of time (usually up to 1 year, sometimes 2 years). These cookies are not deleted when the browser is closed. This type of cookie is used to reuse a user’s preferences when they return to the site. We have a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of our services (technically necessary cookies).
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. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

data processing when contacting us via the homepage
If you contact us by e-mail, e.g. via the e-mail address provided on our website, by telephone or by letter, the personal data transmitted to us (e.g. name, e-mail address, address, etc.) will be processed in order to respond to your request. If you contact us via the contact form provided on our website, you consent to the processing of your personal data. The processing of the personal data (title, first name, surname, company, telephone, e-mail, type of enquiry, your message) from the input mask serves us solely to process the contact. The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a and f DSGVO. If the registration concerns the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures, the processing is carried out according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
We receive personal data from our contractual partners in the course of our business relationships. In addition, we process personal data that we receive directly from our customers, agents, service providers, employees and applicants. Furthermore, we process – to the extent necessary for the provision of a service – personal data that we have received from other group companies or from other third parties (e.g. SCHUFA, Creditreform) in a permissible manner (e.g. for the performance of services, for the fulfilment of contracts or on the basis of consent given by you). Furthermore, we process personal data that we have permissibly obtained from publicly accessible sources (e.g. debtor lists, land registers, commercial and association registers, press, media, Internet) and are allowed to process.
PROCESSING PURPOSES AND LEGAL BASES
We process your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 EU DSGVO, namely Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a for consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO for the performance of a contract, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DSGVO for the performance of a legal obligation, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. d DSGVO for vital interests of the persons concerned, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO for a legitimate interest of our company or a third party. Furthermore, we process your personal data in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act.
DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL DATA
We will not disclose your personal data to third parties unless you consent to the disclosure, there is a legal obligation to disclose it, it is for the performance of a contract or we have legitimate interests in the economic and effective operation of our business with respect to such disclosure.
Within the Garbe Group, we exchange data within the group if and to the extent that a justified interest in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO arises in an intra-group transfer.
External service providers have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored by us. Recipients of personal data are in particular: Banks, advertising agencies, PR agencies, credit agencies, payroll agencies, lawyers, IT service providers, professional associations and government agencies (for example, tax authorities, courts, public prosecutors and police).
TRANSMISSION OF PERSONAL DATA
Data is only transferred to countries outside the EU or the EEA (so-called third countries) if this is necessary for the execution of your orders, is required by law (e.g. tax reporting obligations), you have given us your consent or within the scope of order processing.
USE OF ANALYSIS AND TRACKING TOOLS
We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymisation activated. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union (EU) or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your internet browser will not be merged with other Google data. If you do not wish to have Google Analytics analyse and measure your website’s reach, you can deactivate the use of Google Analytics cookies using an Internet browser add-on as an alternative to the options described in section 4 (2). You can download this here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. In this case, a so-called “opt-out” information is stored on your end device, which serves to assign your deactivation of Google Analytics. Please note that such an “opt-out” information only leads to a deactivation of Google Analytics for the end device and the relevant internet browser from which it was set. In addition, you may have to set it again if you delete cookies from your end device. The opt-out cookie is only valid for the internet browser used when setting it and only for our website and is stored on your end device. If you delete the cookies in the internet browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.
Further information on data use by Google, setting and objection options can be found on the Google website at
PROCESSING AND STORAGE DURATION
We process and store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed, in particular as long as it is necessary for the fulfilment of our contractual and legal obligations.
