Data privacy statement
The providers of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data-protection regulations and this data privacy statement.
A range of personal data is collected when you use this website. Personal data is data that allows you to be identified as a person. This data privacy statement explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how it is done and for what purposes.
We would like to draw your attention to the fact that the transfer of data over the Internet (e.g. communication by email) is not entirely secure. It is not possible to completely protect data from being accessed by third parties.
Note about the responsible body
The responsible body for data processing on this website is:
Steinhoff GmbH & Cie. OHG
The responsible body is the natural or legal entity who alone or in conjunction with others decides the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses and similar).
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing procedures are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke any consent you have already provided at any time. All you need to do is to send us an informal email. The lawful nature of data processing carried out up to such consent being revoked will remain unaffected by the revocation.
Right of appeal to the responsible supervisory authority
The person concerned is entitled in the event of breaches of the data protection law to lodge complaints with the responsible supervisory authority. The supervisory authority responsible for data protection issues is the data protection officer responsible for the federal state in which our company is based. A list of data protection officers and their contact details may be found here: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right to data transferability
You are entitled to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. Any requests for the data to be directly transferred to another responsible person will only be fulfilled if such transfer is technically possible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site employs SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transfer of confidential content, e.g. orders or requests that you send to us as the provider of the site. Encrypted connections are indicated by the fact that the browser's address line will change from ‘http://’ to ‘https://’ and by the lock icon in the line of your browser.
The data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties when SSL or TLS encryption has been activated.
Information, blocking, erasure
You are entitled within the scope of the applicable legal provisions to free disclosure about the storage of your personal data, where it originates from, its recipients as well as the purpose of data processing and, where appropriate, you are entitled to this data being corrected, blocked or erased at any time. You may contact us at any time at the address provided in the legal section if you have any further questions about the issue of personal data.
We have appointed a data-protection officer.
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 placed on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called ‘session cookies’. They are automatically deleted when you terminate your visit. Other cookies will remain on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our website.
It is possible to set your browser to inform you about the placement of cookies, to permit cookies only in individual cases, to block the acceptance of cookies in specific cases or generally and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. The functionality of this website may be restricted when cookies are deactivated.
Cookies that are required to perform the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you desire are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) DGPR. The website provider has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to achieve the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. As far as other cookies (e.g. cookies that analyse your surfing behaviour) are stored, these will be dealt with separately in this data privacy statement.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files which your browser automatically transfers to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request

This data is not combined with other sources of data.
Data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) DGPR, which permits data to be processed within the scope of the fulfilment of a contract or of pre-contractual measures.
Our website uses functions provided by the LinkedIn network. The provider is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
A connection to LinkedIn's servers is established every time one of our pages that contains LinkedIn functions is accessed. LinkedIn is informed that you have visited our website with your IP address. LinkedIn is able to associate your visit to our website with you and your user account when you click LinkedIn's ‘Recommend button’ and are logged into your LinkedIn account. We would like to point out that we – as the provider of the pages – are not made aware of the content of the data that is transferred and how it is used by LinkedIn.
Changes to our data protection regulations
We reserve the right to adapt this data privacy statement to ensure that it always complies with current legal requirements or to take account of changes to our services in the data privacy statement, e.g. when new services are introduced. The new data privacy statement will then apply to your next visit.
