GÜNTHER JANßEN HANDELS GMBH DATA PROTECTION NOTICE
Thank you for visiting our web page and for your interest in our company, our products and our web page. Protecting your
privacy when using our web page is important to us. We therefore act in compliance with applicable legislation on the
protection of personal data and data security.
Below you will learn which web page this data protection notice applies to, which data we collect, process and use,
which rights of access to information you have, and much more. In order to answer your questions quickly and in an
easy-to-understand way, we laid out our data protection notice in a questions-and-answers format.
Who is responsible for this web page?
Günther Janßen Handels GmbH is responsible for collecting and processing the data as described below.
What is personal data?
Personal data is individual information about the personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable
natural person. For instance, personal data includes your name, address, account details, your ID or telephone number,
your car's number plate, your email address and IP number. Data which cannot be used to establish your true identity is
non-personal data. This includes information on your sex, which browser you use and which brand of car you prefer.
Will I remain anonymous when using the Günther Janßen web pages?
Yes. You will remain anonymous when using this web page, as long as you do not voluntarily provide us with your personal
data. The only exception to this principle is the temporary automatic establishment and storage of your IP number. You
can learn more about that below.
Are personal data collected and processed automatically?
Yes. During your visit on our web page we automatically collect information on which IP number is assigned to your
computer, which browser and operating system you use. These data are stored in so-called log files on the Web server.
Only the IP number is classed as personal data. To protect against misuse of our computer systems, it is necessary to
store the IP address of each visitor for a period of seven days. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) f GDPR. If we
further use the log files to create user profiles, either for the purposes of advertising, market research or to design
our website to meet the needs of users, the IP numbers will be anonymised in advance. Otherwise, the IP numbers will be
deleted from the log files. As a result, you will in any event remain anonymous even if we automatically collect and
temporarily store your IP number.
Under which conditions are personal data otherwise collected, processed or used?
We only collect, process or use personal data, if you have provided us with these on a voluntary basis and furthermore,
if it is permitted by law or you have given us your consent to do so. This is usually the case if you enter into an
agreement with us online, or if you send us an enquiry.
For which purposes are personal data collected, processed or used?
We only use the personal data you have provided us with for purposes previously announced or agreed, usually according to Art. 6 (1) b
GDPR for the preparation or performance of the agreement concluded, or according to Art. 6 (1) f GDPR to reply to your enquiry.
Are personal data used for the purposes of advertising or market research?
This is not the case without your consent. In some cases we may be interested in using your personal data for
advertising, market research or other purposes in order to manage and improve customer relations. In such cases, we
will, of course, inform you in advance and ask for your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a GDPR.
Are personal data transferred, sold or otherwise passed on to third parties?
Your personal data are not transferred, sold or otherwise passed on to third parties, unless this is necessary to
perform an agreement according to Art. 6 (1) b GDPR or you have expressly given your consent according to Art. 6 (1) a
GDPR. For example, when you order products it may be necessary for us to pass on your address and order details to our

How can I generally prevent cookies from being placed on my computer?

fundamentally sceptical about these small data packages. Hence we would like to inform you that you can protect yourself
from cookies being placed on your computer and that you can view their content. Modern browsers offer various functions
to do so. You can find out more in the help section of your browser. You can, for instance, set your web browser to
automatically block all cookies or to warn you before a cookie is being stored. Please note, however, that this may lead
