1. Data protection at a glance
The collection of data on our website
Who is responsible for the collection of data on this website?
The data processing on this website is performed by the website operator. For their contact data, please refer to the legal notice on this website.
How do we collect your data?
One way of collecting your data is that you provide it to us. Such data may, for example, include information that you enter in a contact form.
Other data are automatically recorded by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time at which the website was accessed). These data are collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
For which purpose do we use your data?
Some of the data is collected to ensure the error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour.
Which rights do you have with regard to your data?
You have, at any time, a right of free access to information on the origin, recipients and purpose of your stored personal data. Moreover, you have the right to request the rectification, blocking or erasure of such data. For this purpose, or if you have any further questions regarding data protection, you may contact us at the address specified in the legal notice at any time. In addition, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
2. General information and mandatory information
Please note that data transmission over the internet (e.g. during communication via email) may have security vulnerabilities. It is impossible to fully protect the data against access by third parties.
Information on the controller
The controller for data processing on this website is:
Wilhelm Jockenhöfer GmbH & Co. KG
Stettiner Str. 32
Telefon: +49 (0) 2365-10030
The controller is the natural or legal person who—alone or jointly with others—determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).
Withdrawing your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You may withdraw the consent that you provided on a previous occasion at any time. To do so, sending us an informal message by email will suffice. The withdrawal of your consent will not affect the lawfulness of data processing which was carried out before its withdrawal.
Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority
In the event of infringements of data protection law, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority. The responsible supervisory authority for issues surrounding data protection law is the State Data Protection Officer of the federal state in which our company has its registered office. For a list of the data protection officers and their contact data, please refer to the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right to data portability
You or a third party have the right to be provided with the data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or for the fulfilment of a contract, in a commonly used, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be performed insofar as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons, and in order to protect the transfer of confidential content—such as orders or enquiries—that you send to us as website operator, this website uses SSL and/or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the address line in the browser changing from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in the browser line.
If the SSL and/or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you transfer to us cannot be accessed by third parties.
Access, blocking, erasure
You have, at any time, under the applicable legal provisions, the right of free access to your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing, as well as to the rectification, blocking or erasure of this data, if applicable. For this purpose, or if you have any further questions regarding personal data, you may contact us at the address specified in the legal notice at any time.
Objection to advertising emails
The use of contact data published to comply with statutory reporting obligations for the purposes of sending advertisements and information material which has not been expressly solicited is hereby rejected. The operators of this website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for instance by means of spam emails.

Some of the web pages use so-called “cookies”. Cookies cause no 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 used by us are so-called “session cookies”. These are erased automatically at the end of your visit. Other cookies are stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser when you next visit our site.
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and saves information in server log files which your browser automatically sends to us. This includes:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
This data is not combined with other data sources.
The data processing is based on point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR, which allows the processing of data in order to execute a contract or to engage in pre-contractual steps.
If you send us enquiries using the contact form, we will store your data from the enquiry form, including the contact data specified there by you, for processing the enquiry and in case follow-up questions arise. We will not disclose such information without your consent.
In this respect, the data entered by you in the contact form or your email will only be processed based on your consent (point (a) of Art. 6(1) GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. To do so, sending us an informal message by email will suffice. The withdrawal of your consent will not affect the lawfulness of data processing operations which were carried out before its withdrawal.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to erase it, withdraw your consent to its storage, or the purpose for the data storage lapses (e.g. after the processing of your enquiry). Mandatory legal provisions—particularly retention periods—shall remain unaffected.
