Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our company DR. The protection of your data is of utmost importance to us. With the following information on data protection, we would like to inform you about the purposes for which and the extent to which we collect or process your personal data when you use our website and how we protect your privacy when you provide us with your data.


1. Responsibility

Strube D&S GmbH, Hauptstraße 1, D-38387 Söllingen, Germany, is the operator of this website and, as the responsible body within the meaning of Art. 4 para. 7 GDPR, is responsible for compliance with the applicable data protection provisions.

The personal data of our users is stored and processed by us in compliance with the relevant regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG) in their respective current versions. All personal data is only collected for specified, clear and lawful purposes and is not kept longer than necessary.


2. Personal data

Personal data are individual details about personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person (e.g. name, date of birth and contact details).


3. Website

In principle, our web pages can be used by you without providing your personal data. However, it may be necessary for certain applications of our website that you provide us with your data. Therefore, the use of our website may be restricted if you do not provide us with your data.

As soon as you visit our website, our web servers temporarily save each access in a log file. The following data may be recorded and stored until automatically deleted: IP address, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, messages about the success of accessing the website, identification data of the browser and operating system used, the web page from which access was made and the IP address of your internet access provider. This data is processed for the purpose of enabling the use of the website, system security, technical administration of the network infrastructure and optimisation of the website. This is to be regarded as a legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.


4. Other data collection

We collect, store and process your personal data (e.g. first name, last name, address, e-mail address, telephone number) if a business relationship exists or is to be established, e.g. within the scope of a subscription or an order, as well as when the content of the business relationship is defined and changed. In addition, we use your personal data if you have provided it to us for registration on our website and have consented to the processing of your personal data. Furthermore, we collect, store and process your personal data if you contact us via an applicant or contact form, job portal, blog function or by sending an e-mail, insofar as this is necessary for the processing of your enquiries and correspondence. The personal data we collect is deleted immediately as soon as it is no longer required for this purpose, unless there are legal retention periods.


5. Blog

In our blog, various articles are published on topics relating to our activities. As a visitor, you have the opportunity to make public comments. When published, the comment will be displayed with the data you have provided. We recommend using a pseudonym for this purpose. Required for our blog function is the specification of the user name and the location. All other information is voluntary. Your name is required because we need to contact you if a third party objects to your comments as being unlawful. The lawfulness of this data processing results from Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b and f GDPR.


6. Contact form

If you use our contact form and send us an enquiry, the information you provide and your contact details will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and for any follow-up questions. The data will not be passed on without your consent.

The legal basis for the data processing of the data provided in the contact form is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR), which you gave by ticking the box in the contact form. You can revoke this consent at any time without giving any reason to the above address or electronically (e.g. by e-mail). The legality of the data processing carried out up to the point of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data provided in the contact form will be stored by us until your request for deletion, until receipt of the revocation or after the purpose of the data storage has ceased (e.g. when the processing of the enquiry has been completed). This does not affect the statutory provisions, such as the retention periods in particular.


7. Newsletter

On our website you have the possibility to register for our free newsletter. Only your e-mail address is required for sending the newsletter. You are also welcome to provide us with your name. If you provide us with your name, this information will be used to personalise the newsletter. The data you provide will not be passed on to third parties.

We use a so-called double opt-in procedure to register for our newsletter. This means that after we have received your registration, we will send you a confirmation e-mail to the e-mail address you have provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not click the link contained in the confirmation e-mail within 24 hours, your registration will be automatically deleted.

If you confirm your wish to receive the newsletter, we will store your data until you unsubscribe or revoke your consent. The storage serves the sole purpose of being able to send you the newsletter. Furthermore, we store your IP addresses and the times of registration and confirmation in order to prevent misuse of your personal data.

You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time. You can revoke your consent by clicking the link provided in each newsletter (see footer) as well as in the confirmation e-mail for registration and by sending an e-mail to datenschutz@strube.net.

In the event of your revocation or cancellation of the newsletter, your data will be removed from the newsletter distribution list and subsequently deleted completely. Insofar as we have also collected your contact data (name and e-mail address) from you within the context of further business relationships, the respective retention periods apply in this respect.


8. Newsletter dispatch via Mailingwork

This website uses Mailingwork to send newsletters. The provider is Mailingwork GmbH, Schönherrstraße 8, Building 10d, Entrance N, D-09113 Chemnitz, Germany. Mailingwork is a service with which the newsletter dispatch can be organised and analysed. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving newsletters (e.g. e-mail address) is stored on Mailingwork's servers in the EU.

Our newsletters sent with Mailingwork enable us to analyse the behaviour of the newsletter recipients. Among other things, we can analyse how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often each link in the newsletter was clicked. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it can also be analysed whether a predefined action (e.g. purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking the link in the newsletter.

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the data processing processes already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

If you do not want any analysis by Mailingwork, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message.

The data you provide us with for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of Mailingwork after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the members' area) remain unaffected by this.

For more details, please refer to Mailingwork's privacy policy at: https://mailingwork.de/datenschutz/


9. Passing on data

We use your personal data within Strube D&S GmbH and our affiliated companies. These companies, as well as our external service providers who carry out data processing on our behalf, are contractually obliged within the meaning of Art. 28 GDPR to handle the personal data in accordance with the applicable regulations. Insofar as these companies come into contact with your personal data, we have ensured through legal, technical and organisational measures as well as regular checks that they comply with the provisions of the data protection laws.

If you find links from other data controllers on our website (e.g. Google Maps, Google, Instagram) and click the link, you are using the website directly with the respective data controllers, so that our data protection provisions do not apply to this website.

In principle, we do not transfer your personal data to a third country or to an international organisation outside the European Economic Area (EEA). If, in individual cases, we do make such a transfer, it will only be to those third countries for which an adequacy decision has been issued by the European Commission or the appropriate level of data protection has been ensured by suitable or adequate safeguards (e.g. Binding Corporate Rules or EU standard contractual clauses).

We reserve the right to transmit your personal data to bodies entitled to receive information if we are obliged to do so by law or by court order.

As a matter of principle, your personal data will not be passed on to other third parties.


10. Cookies

On our website, various information is stored in so-called cookies, which serve a user-friendly handling of the application and make the website more effective overall. In addition, the data stored in a cookie makes it unnecessary to repeatedly fill out forms. The cookies we use are time-limited and are deleted regularly.

You can independently manage the acceptance of cookies from our website in your browser and block them if necessary. You can also delete cookies that have already been set at any time. Furthermore, you can find out about the possibility of deactivating cookies in the settings of your selected browser. If you do not accept cookies, this may lead to restrictions in the use of our website in individual cases. We would like to point out that after deleting your cookies, you may also have to reactivate set opt-out cookies.

We recommend that you regularly delete the cookies and the browser history manually.

We distinguish between technically necessary cookies, preferences and static and marketing cookies. Technically necessary cookies are those that make site use technically possible. Technically unnecessary cookies are all cookies that are used for marketing and statistical purposes. Strube D&S GmbH uses Google Ads and Facebook Insights for this purpose.

Consent to data processing using cookies is voluntary and can be revoked or adjusted at any time using the following link: Access settings.

Your consent applies to the following domains: www.strube.net


11. Analysis of the website

In order to optimise the contents and offers of our website as well as to collect statistical evaluations, various technical programs are used which record data on the behaviour of the user of the website, also in anonymised form. For this purpose, data on click behaviour, duration of visits, system settings and the origin of users are collected in the form of text files through the use of analysis software cookies. Cookies are stored on your computer for these analyses. This collected data may be stored on the servers of the operators of the analysis tools. The collected data is not used to personally identify the user and is not merged with other personal data of the user.

You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser accordingly. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. In the following section, we present the analysis tools we use in detail.

The following analysis tool is used on our website for this purpose:


12. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, LLC ("Google"). The information generated by the Cookie concerning your use of this website is normally transferred onto a Google server in the USA and saved there. Due to the IP anonymisation on the website, your IP address will however be previously abbreviated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity on behalf of the operator of this website, and providing other services relating to website and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

For more information about terms of use and privacy, see https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/. We would like to point out that the code "anonymizeIp" has been added to Google Analytics on this website in order to ensure anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

The legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR.

You can revoke the processing of your data within the scope of Google Analytics at any time by adjusting your cookie settings: Access settings.


13. Google Ads

We use the Google Ads service on our website. Google Ads is an online advertising program of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. We use the remarketing function of Google Ads. This function enables us to present you (as a user of our website) with advertisements based on your interest on other websites within the display network. To make this possible, your interaction on our website is analysed. For example, we record which offer you were interested in. For this process, Google stores a cookie in your browser. Your visits to our website are recorded via this cookie. This serves primarily to identify the web browser on a particular computer and not to identify you personally. Personal data is not stored.

If you wish to deactivate the use of cookies by Google, you can click the following link and download and install the plug-in provided there: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin.

More detailed information can be found in the Google privacy policy at: http://www.google.com/privacy/ads/.

In addition, we use the conversion tracking function of Google Ads. Here, a cookie is placed on your end device as soon as you click on an ad placed by Google. However, the cookies lose their validity after 30 days. The cookies do not contain any personal data and cannot be used for personal identification. In particular, the information collected is used to compile statistics for Google Ads customers.

You can independently manage the acceptance of cookies from our website in your browser and block them if necessary. You can also delete cookies that have already been set at any time. Furthermore, you can find out about the possibility of deactivating cookies in the settings of your selected browser. If you do not accept cookies, this may lead to restrictions in the use of our website in individual cases.

In addition, you can deactivate the interest-based ads on Google as well as the interest-based Google ads on the web in your browser. To do this, you must activate the "Off" button at http://www.google.de/settings/ads or deactivate it at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. We would like to point out that after deleting your cookies, you may also have to reactivate set opt-out cookies.

Further information on your settings options in this regard and Google's data protection can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/?fg=1.


14. Google Web Fonts

On our website, so-called Web Fonts are used, which are provided by Google, in order to display fonts consistently. The page loads the required web fonts into your browser cache when you access it. This is necessary in order to display the texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, the browser used connects to Google's servers. Google thereby becomes aware that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our website. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font from your computer will be used.

Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in the Google privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.


15. External links

We occasionally refer to external links that are located on third-party sites. As far as this is not obviously recognisable, we point out that it is an external link. We have no influence on the content and design of the pages of external providers. This privacy policy therefore does not apply there.


16. IHD Kreditschutzverein (credit protection association)

We regularly check the creditworthiness of existing customers when concluding contracts, when creating a new debtor and in certain cases where there is a justified interest. For this purpose, we work together with the IHD Kreditschutzverein e.V., Augustinusstraße 11B, D-50226 Frechen, Germany, from whom we receive the data required for this purpose. For this purpose, we transmit your name and contact details to the IHD Kreditschutzverein e.V. You can find the information pursuant to Art. 14 GDPR on the data processing taking place at the IHD Kreditschutzverein e.V. here: https://www.ihd.de/datenschutz.


17. Competition

You have the opportunity to participate in a competition on our Facebook page. Within the scope of these promotions, personal data (e-mail address, surname, first name, address) may also be collected and stored for the purpose of processing. The personal data you provide to us within the context of such a promotion will be used exclusively for the processing of the promotion (e.g. for the determination of the prize, notification of the prize and sending of the prize). After the end of the promotion, the participants' data will be deleted. Further conditions of participation can be found at: https://www.strube.net/teilnahmebedingungen


18. Data security

We have taken extensive technical and organisational operational security measures to protect the data you have transmitted from unauthorised access as well as misuse by third parties. These measures meet the high legal requirements of national regulations and are always adapted to the current state of the art.


19. Rights of data subjects

As a data subject, you have the following rights vis-à-vis us according to Art. 15 to 22 GDPR:

  • Right to information
  • Right to correction or deletion
  • Right to restrict processing
  • Right to object to the processing
  • Right to data transferability

If you have given us permission to use personal data, you can revoke this permission at any time. To do so, please contact us by e-mail at datenschutz@strube.net. Alternatively, please inform us of your request by post or by fax.

Furthermore, you have the option to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about our data processing of personal data. The data protection supervisory authority responsible for us is "Die Landesbeauftragte für den Datenschutz Niedersachsen, Prinzenstraße 5, D-30159 Hanover, Germany".


20. Incorporation, up-to-dateness and amendment of the privacy policy

By using our website, you agree to the use of data described above. The privacy policy is dated 22 December 2020 and is currently valid. Due to the continuous further development of our website or the implementation of new technologies, it may become necessary to adapt this privacy policy to the current status. Strube D&S GmbH therefore reserves the right to change the privacy policy at any time with effect for the future. You should therefore visit this web page regularly to find out about the current status of our privacy policy.
