Data privacy statement

Pollmeier is committed to protecting your personal data. We have provided detailed information below on how your data is handled. It goes without saying that we observe all the statutory regulations laid down by the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the German Teleservices Act (TMG) as well as other data privacy provisions.


Data collection and processing

It is not strictly necessary to provide data with regard to your person in order to use our online services. We only save access data without any personal reference such as the name of your Internet service provider, the page from which you are visiting us, the names of the files requested and the date they were called up. This data is evaluated exclusively to improve our website and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn with regard to your person.
 Personal data is only collected when you provide this on a voluntary basis. This can occur when ordering goods, when opening a customer account or when registering for our newsletter.


Use and forwarding of personal data

When you request that we provide a service or deliver goods, your personal data will only be used without your explicit consent to the extent necessary in order to provide the said service or to execute the contract.
 This includes, in particular, the forwarding of your data to shipping companies, credit institutes and any other service providers commissioned for provision of the service or processing of the contract.
 Once the contract has been completely processed, your data will be blocked against further use and will be deleted following the compulsory retention periods as per tax and commercial law, unless you have given your express consent to continued use of the data.
 If you have registered to receive our newsletter upon entering your e-mail address, this will be used for our advertising purposes until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can choose to unsubscribe at any point.
