Analytics and third-party tools
2. General information and mandatory information
We would like to point out that transmission of data via the internet (e.g. during communication by email) may be associated with security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to protect data fully against unauthorised access by third parties.
Information regarding responsible party
The responsible party for data processing (data controller) on this website is:
Arnold Zentralverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH
73630 Remshalden, Germany
Phone: +49 (0)7151 7096-0
The responsible party is the natural or juridical person who alone or with others decides about the purposes and means of processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses or similar).
Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can withdraw your granted consent at any time. To do so just send a formless message to us by email. The lawfulness of any data processing that has already occurred up to the time of withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
Right to object to data collection in special cases as well as to direct advertising (Article 21 of the GDPR)
If your personal data are processed for direct advertising you have the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling if it is connected to direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will then no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection in accordance with Art. 21(2) of the GDPR).
Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violation of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of his/her habitual residence, workplace or place in which the alleged violation occurred. The right to lodge a complaint exists without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data which we process in an automated manner on the basis of your consent or for performance of a contract handed out to you or a third party in a standard machine-readable format. If you demand direct transmission of the data to another responsible party, this will only occur as far as is technically possible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for protection during transmission of confidential content such as orders or enquiries you send to us as site operators. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the switch from ‘http://’ to ‘https://’ in the address bar of the browser and by the padlock icon in your browser status bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is active the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Access, blocking, erasure and rectification
Within the scope of the applicable legal provisions you have at all times the right to receive free information about the personal data saved about you, the origin and recipient of these data and the purpose for data processing and if necessary a right to rectification, blocking or erasure of these data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal information section if you have any questions regarding this or the topic of personal data.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data. For this purpose you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal information section. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
- If you question the accuracy of the personal data saved by us we normally require time to verify this. You have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data for the duration of the examination.
- If processing of your personal data took place or is taking place unlawfully you can demand the restriction of data processing rather than erasure.
- If we no longer need the data, but you require them for exercising, defence or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing, rather than erasure, of your personal data.
- If you have filed an objection in accordance with Art. 21(1) of the GDPR your interests must be weighed against our interests. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests are overriding, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data may – apart from being saved – only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercising or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or juridical person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

4. Data collection on our website
The web pages use so-called cookies in part. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our offering 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 ‘session cookies’. These cookies are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files which your browser automatically transmits to us. These data are:
- browser type and version
- operating system used
- referrer URL
- hostname of accessing computer (client computer name)
- time of server request
- IP address.
These data are not combined with data from other sources.
Collection of these data takes place on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in technically error-free display and optimisation of the website – the server log files must be obtained for this purpose.
If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your information from this contact form including the contact data provided by you there is saved by us for the purpose of processing of the enquiry and for the case that we have follow-up questions. We do not pass on these data without your consent.
Processing of the data entered in the contact form hence takes place solely on the basis of your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. To do so just send a formless message to us by email. The lawfulness of any data processing that has already occurred up to the time of withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
The data entered in the contact form by you remain with us until you ask us to delete them, you withdraw your consent to storage or the purpose for saving the data becomes invalid (e.g. after your enquiry has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular pertaining to retention periods – remain unaffected.
5. Analytics tools and advertising
This website uses features of the Google Analytics web analytics service. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files saved on your computer to enable analysis of your use of the website. The information on your use of this website generated by the cookie is usually transferred to and saved on a Google server in the US.
Saving of Google Analytics cookies and use of this analytics tool take place on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both the website and the advertising.
We have activated IP anonymisation on this website. Through this, your IP address is truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or other contracting parties to the European Economic Area prior to being transmitted to the US. The complete IP address is only transmitted to and truncated on a Google server in the US in exceptional cases. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about the website activities and to provide additional services related to use of the website and the internet to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other data held by Google.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by making the appropriate setting in your browser; however, in this case, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) for Google as well as the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Objecting to data collection
You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the link below. This causes an opt-out cookie that prevents the collection of your data when you visit this website again in the future to be set: deactivate Google Analytics.
Contract data processing
We have concluded a contract for data processing with Google and fully comply with the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities in the use of Google Analytics.

For you to be able to use the features of Google Maps, your IP address must be saved. This information is usually transferred to and saved on a Google server in the US. The provider of this site has no influence over this data transmission.
Google Maps is used in the interest of attractively presenting our online offerings and making it easy to find the locations specified by us on the website. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense given in Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.
