§ 3 Collection of personal data when visiting our website

  • Transient cookies (see b),
  • Persistent cookies (see c).

b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. In particular, this includes session cookies.

This allows your computer to be recognised again when you visit our website. Session cookies are deleted once you log out or close the browser.

For this purpose you generally need to indicate personal data that we use for the performance of the particular service and for which the previously cited data processing principles apply.

3. In addition, we may pass on your personal data to third parties if contracts are concluded or similar services are offered by us in conjunction with partners. You will receive more detailed information when entering your personal data or below the description of the offer.

4. If our service providers or partners are based outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), we shall inform you about the consequences of this circumstance in the offer description.

§ 5 Contact via contact form

This is the case when the particular conversation with you is over and the matter has been conclusively cleared up. If your contact with us via our contact form results in a contractual relationship with us, we save the data you have provided until the contractual relationship has ended and no claims arising on this basis can be asserted anymore. In the case of any legal archiving obligations, the data is deleted once the retention duties per commercial and tax law (AO, HGB) have expired.

§ 6 Tracking and analysis services Google Analytics

We use the Google Analytics tracking tool from Google Ireland Limited on our website. Thus, your interactions with our website as a user will be recorded and evaluated systematically.

As a result, the following data of yours will be stored:
• The first three bytes of your IP address
• A Google Analytics ID assigned to you
• The accessed website
• The referrer (the website from which you came to the accessed website)
• The additional sub-pages accessed
• The time spent on the website
• The frequency of accessing the website
• Browser type used
• Language settings used
• Device and operating system used

Your personal data will be processed based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time by interacting with the privacy button. The purpose of processing your personal data by the Google Analytics service is to analyse the interaction of our website visitors with our website. By evaluating the data obtained here, we can optimise our offer and increase user-friendliness. We delete or anonymise the data collected by Google Analytics as soon as it is no longer required for our purposes. This is the case after 14 days at the latest.

MyFonts Counter
On our website we use the MyFonts Counter, a web analysis service from MyFonts Inc., 500 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, MA 01801, USA. Due to the license terms, page view tracking is carried out by counting the number of visits to the website for statistical purposes and transmitting it to MyFonts. MyFonts only collects anonymised data. The data may be passed on by activating Java Script code in your browser. MyFonts Counter is used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest as defined in Art. 6 para. 1(1) lit. f GDPR. In order to completely prevent the execution of JavaScript code from MyFonts, you can also install a JavaScript blocker (e.g. www.noscript.net). We delete or anonymise the data collected by MyFonts Counter as soon as it is no longer required for our purposes. This is currently the case after 30 days. Further information on MyFonts Counter can be found in the data protection information of MyFonts at http://www.myfonts.com/info/terms-and-conditions/#Privacy

Google Tag Manager
This website uses the Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed via an interface. The Google Tool Manager only implements tags. This means: No cookies are used and no personal data is recorded. The Google Tool Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been carried out at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags, provided that they are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.

Google Maps
We use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google") on our website. To ensure data protection, Google Maps is deactivated when you enter this website for the first time. This prevents your data from being transferred to Google the first time you
enter the site. A direct connection to the Google servers is only established if you activate Google Maps yourself (consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time by interacting with the privacy button. After activation, Google Maps will save your IP address. This is then generally sent to a Google server in the USA and saved there. You can find more information on handling user data in Google's privacy policy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

§ 7 Download of Flexperte software

Our design software Flexperte is offered for download on our website. To download the software, you must fill in our Flexperte form. Enter your contact data in this form. We will save this data to make the download possible for you. After ordering via the Flexperte form, you will receive an email at the email address you have indicated. This email contains a link that takes you directly to the download of the Flexperte software when you click on it. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 1 Para.1 lit. b) GDPR. We use your details for commercial purposes only if you have explicitly given your consent to the use of your data for marketing purposes during the ordering process (The legal basis for this is Art 6 Para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR). This consent can be revoked at any time.

§8 Data processing via our social media pages

On our website you will find links to the social media services of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn and Xing. You can recognize links to the websites of the social media services by the respective company logo. If you follow these links, you will reach the corporate website of Witzenmann GmbH at the respective social media service. When you click on a link to a social media service, a connection to the servers of the social media service is established. This transmits to the social media service server that you have visited our website. In addition, further data is transmitted to the provider of the social media service.
These are for example:

  • Address of the website on which the activated link is located
  • Date and time when the website was accessed or the link was activated
  • Information about the browser and operating system used
  • IP address

If you are already logged into the relevant social media service at the time the link is activated, the provider of the social media service may be able to determine your user name and possibly even your real name from the data transmitted and assign this information for your personal user account to the social media service. You can eliminate this possibility of assignment to your personal user account by logging out from your user account beforehand. The servers of the social media services are located in the USA and in other countries outside the European Union. Therefore, data can also be processed by the provider of the social media service in countries outside the European Union. Please note that companies in these countries are subject to data protection laws that generally do not protect personal data to the same extent as is the case in the member states of the European Union. Please note that we have no influence regarding the scope, type and purpose of data processing by the provider of the social media service. You can find more information about the use of your data by the social media services integrated on our website in the data protection guideline of the respective social media service. Below you will find the most important information on data protection law in relation to our websites.

Name and address of those responsible for the company

Apart from the Witzenmann GmbH, those responsible for the company's appearance as defined in the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-DS-GVO) as well for other data protection regulations, include

  • Facebook (Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland)
  • YouTube (Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland)
  • Twitter (Twitter International Company, One Cumberland Place, Fenian Street Dublin 2, D02 AX07 Ireland)
  • LinkedIn (LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland)
  • Xing (New Work SE Dammtorstraße 30 20354 Hamburg Germany)

However, you use these platforms and their functions at your own risk. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating).
We would also like to point out that your data can be processed outside of the European Union.
We ourselves maintain the fan pages in order to communicate with the visitors of these pages and thereby to inform them about our offers.
We also collect data for statistical purposes in order to be able to develop and optimise the content and to make our offer more attractive. The data required for this (e.g. total number of page views, page activities and data provided by visitors, interactions) is processed by the social networks and made available to us. We have no influence with regards to its generation and display. In addition, your personal data will be processed by the social media providers for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, it is possible that usage profiles, for example, are created based on your usage behaviour and the resulting interests. This, among other things, allows advertisements to be placed inside and outside the platforms that match your interests. For this purpose, cookies are usually stored on your computer. Regardless of this, data that is not collected directly on your end devices can also be saved in your usage profiles. The storage and analysis also takes place across devices. This applies in particular, but not exclusively, if you are registered as a member and logged into the respective platforms. In addition, we do not collect or process any personal data. The processing of your personal data by Witzenmann GmbH is based on our legitimate interests in effective information and communication in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f. EU GDPR. If you are asked for your consent to data processing, i.e. if you give your consent by confirming a button or the like (opt-in), the legal basis for processing is Art. 6 1 Para. 1 lit. a), Art.7 GDPR.

Your rights/possibility to appeal

If you are a member of a social network and do not want the network to collect data about you via our website and link it to your stored member data in the respective network, you have to · log out of the respective network before visiting our fan page, · delete the cookies on the device and · quit and restart your browser. Please note that this process must be carried out separately for each end device. After logging in again, however, you can be recognized again by the network as a specific user. For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the information linked below:


Overall, you have the following rights with regard to the processing of your personal data:
  • The right to information (Art. 15 EU-DS-GVO),
  • The right to delete (Art. 17 EU-DS-GVO),
  • The right to rectification (Art. 16 EU-DS-GVO),
  • The right to data transferability (Art. 20 EU-DSGVO),
  • The right to restrict data processing (Art. 18 EU-DS-GVO),
  • The right to object to data processing (Art. 21 EU-DS-GVO).

You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority. However, since Witzenmann GmbH does not have full access to your personal data, you should contact the social media provider directly when making a claim, because they each have access to the personal data of their users and can take appropriate measures and provide information. Should you still need help, we will of course try to support you. Please contact .

§ 9 Revocation or objection to the processing of your data

1. If you have given consent to the processing of your personal data, you can revoke it at any time. A revocation of this type affects the admissibility of the processing of your personal data, after you have indicated it to us.

2. If the processing of your personal data is based on the balancing of interests, you can lodge an objection against the processing. This is particularly the case when the processing is not necessary for fulfillment of a contract with you, which in each case will be shown by us in the particular description of the function. When such an objection is expressed, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we are doing. If a justified objection is made, we examine the situation and will either stop or adjust the data processing or show you the compelling legitimate grounds on which we shall continue the processing.

3. Of course you can object to the processing of your personal data for advertising and data analysis purposes at any time. You can inform us about your objection to advertising using the contact information below: Witzenmann GmbH, Östliche Karl-Friedrich-Straße 134, 75175 Pforzheim, Email: .

§ 10 Links to other providers

Our website also contains - clearly recognisable - links to the websites of other companies. If there are links to websites of other providers, we have no influence on their contents. Therefore, no guarantee or liability can be assumed for this content. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of these pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations and recognisable legal violations at the time they were linked. No illegal content was found at the time when the link was created. However, permanent monitoring of the content of the linked pages is not reasonable without specific evidence of an infringement. Upon notification of infringements, such links will be removed immediately.
