The protection of your personal data is of major importance to us. The submission of personal data shall be on a voluntary basis. The Company processes these data pursuant to the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation, the German Telemedia Act and the German Federal Data Protection Act.
In the following, we describe which data will be processed during your visit to the Company’s website.

You will find the contact data of our data protection officer in clause 20 below.
2. Personal data
Personal data shall be individual information about personal and factual circumstances of a defined or definable natural person. This includes information such as IP address, your actual name, your address, your telephone number and your date of birth. Information that cannot be connected to your real identity - such as favourite internet sites or number of users of one site - shall not be deemed to be personal data.
3. Processing of personal data
When you visit the Company’s website, we temporarily process and store different types of data. These include connection data of the requesting computer, internet sites that you select on our website as well as the date and duration of your visit. In addition, we determine the identification data of the internet browser that is used and the type of operating system as well as the website from which you visit us. Personal data, such as your name, your address, your telephone number or e-mail address will only be captured if you give this information voluntarily within the scope of a registration, a survey or an information request.
4. Designated use and disclosure of personal data
Personal data you provide the Company with will be used for technical administration purposes of the website, for services, for customer administration, for product-related surveys and for marketing - but in each case only to the extent that is necessary.
5. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data depends on the underlying purpose of the data processing.
- Technical administration of the website
Insofar as a contractual relationship has been established with you, the legal basis for the processing of personal data for the aforementioned purpose shall be article 6, paragraph 1, letter b GDPR. Insofar as no contractual relationship exists between the Company and you, the legal basis for data processing shall be article 6, paragraph 1, letter f GDPR. The transmission of personal data (e.g. the IP address) shall be necessary for establishing the connection as well as for displaying the content of the website.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data for the aforementioned purpose shall be article 6, paragraph 1, letter b GDPR. We render our services within the scope of the fulfilment of our contractual duties. Without processing personal data, we are not able to fulfil or implement the contract we have concluded with you.
- Google Analytics
The legal basis for the processing of personal data within the scope of the use of Google Analytics shall be article 6, paragraph 1, letter f GDPR. We need statistical information about the use of our online offer to create a more user-friendly design, to measure the reach and to be able to carry out market research.
6. Disclosure of data
Your personal data will only be disclosed to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of handling the contract or if you have given your explicit consent. Hence it can be necessary that we transfer your address and order data to your wholesale partner in the event that you order products. If we commission external service providers, these service providers are carefully selected and undertake to adhere to any data protection regulations pursuant to article 28 GDPR.
8. Integration of plug-ins of social networks
For social networks, our website uses an individual button for each network
- Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA
- YouTube, LLC. 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno CA 94066, USA
- Google+, Google Inc.,1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
These buttons are marked with the logo of the respective social network. But these are not the usual social plug-ins but buttons with links that open when you click on them. The buttons must be clicked separately by you to be activated. If these buttons are not clicked, no data will be transferred to the social networks. Only if you click these buttons and hence give your consent to communication with the servers of the social network, will the buttons become active and the connection will be established.
After clicking the button, it corresponds to a so-called share plug-in. The social media will be provided with the information about the visited site. You can share this information with your contacts within your social network. If you would like to “share” this information, you must be signed in to your account. If you have not signed in, you will be transferred to the registration page of the social network you have clicked and you will no longer be on the SFB Group websites. If you have signed in, the information will be transferred that you would like to recommend the respective article.
By activating the button, the social networks also receive the information that you visited the respective site of our internet presence and when. In addition information is transferred regarding e.g. your IP address, details about the browser used and language settings. If you click on the button, your click will be transferred to the social network and will afterwards be used pursuant to its data usage guidelines.
Please refer to the following information to obtain information about the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of data by the respective social network as well as with regard to your respective rights and setting options to protect your privacy

- At Google: http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy
- At Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/t/privacy_at_youtube
If you do not want the social network to obtain data about you, you must not click on the button.
If the website offers a newsletter service and if you would like to subscribe to this, we need your e-mail address and information that allows us to check that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receiving the newsletter (double opt-in procedure). To personalise the newsletter, we store personal data such as first name, surname and company. We use these data exclusively to send the required information and to document your consent. At any time and for the future, you are allowed to revoke the given consent to data storage, the e-mail address and its use. E.g. you can do so by clicking on the “Austragen” (unsubscribe) link in the newsletter.
10. Statistical evaluation
We need statistical information about the use of our online offer to create a more user-friendly design, to measure the reach and to be able to carry out market research. For this purpose, we make use of the web analysis tools described in this clause.
Google Analytics is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). This analysis software is configured in a way that is compliant with data protection laws. We use Google Analytics in particular in connection with the anonymisation of IP addresses, an additional function provided by Google. During this process, the IP address is normally already shortened by Google within the EU and only shortened in the USA in exceptional cases and at a rate only saved in shortened form.
You are allowed to object to the collection or evaluation of your data by using this tool and by downloading and installing the available browser plugin at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
11. Data security
Our employees and the service providers commissioned by us are obliged to adhere to secrecy and compliance with the stipulations of the applicable data protection laws. The Company takes adequate technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data from loss, alteration, destruction or access by unauthorised persons or an unauthorised disclosure. Our security measures are being constantly improved in line with technological development.
12. Duration of data storage
In principle, we only store your data for a period that is necessary for providing our online offer and the related services or if we have a legitimate interest in further storage (e.g. after we have fulfilled the contract, we could still have a legitimate interest in marketing via post). Your data will be deleted after statutory or contractual retention periods (e.g. retention periods required by tax or commercial law) have expired. Data that is not subject to any duty of retention will be deleted as soon as the described designated purpose no longer applies.
13. Rights as a user
When using our website, you have different rights. To claim your rights, please use the information given in our “contact” clause. In doing so, please make sure that an explicit identification of your person is possible.
14. Rights to information, correction or deletion of data
Pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation, you will - upon request, free of charge and at any time - obtain written information about the kind of data (e.g. name, address) that is stored concerning your person. In addition, you shall have the right to correction or deletion of these data insofar as preconditions required by law are met. The entitlement to deletion excludes data such as data referring to business processes that are subject to statutory duties of retention.
15. Right to limit data processing
You shall have the right to limit the processing of your personal data.
16. Right of objection
In addition and at any time, you shall have the right to object to the data processing by us. We will then discontinue processing your data unless we are able to prove - pursuant to statutory provisions - necessary reasons for further processing that are worthy of protection and that outweigh your rights.
17. Revocation of consent
At any time and for the future, you shall have the right to revoke your consent to process your personal data that you have granted to us for one or more defined purposes. Until revocation, the legitimacy of processing your data shall be unaffected thereby.
18. Automatic processing of personal data
An exclusively automated processing of your personal data shall only be carried out if this is necessary for the conclusion or the fulfilment of the contract and if this processing does not have any legal or similar effect on you.
19. Complaints to regulatory authorities
In the event of complaints regarding the processing of your personal data, you have the right to consult the responsible regulatory authorities. To do so, you can contact the data protection authority that is responsible for your place of residence or your federal state or you can contact the data protection authority that is responsible for us. This is:
Bayerisches Landesamt für Datenschutzaufsicht
