The Data Protection Officer

For questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data and in case of information, correction, blocking or deletion of data, please contact our Data Protection Officer:


Data Processing on our website

When you visit our website, our web server makes a temporary record of each access and stores it in a log file. The following data is recorded and stored until an automatic deletion:

  • IP address of the requesting processor
  • date and time of access
  • name and URL of the downloaded file
  • volume of data transmitted
  • indication whether download was successful
  • data identifying the browser software and operating system.

We record the data to enable you to visit the website (connection setup), for reasons of system security, technical administration of the network infrastructure and in order to optimize the internet service. This data is not used for identifying a particular person. A combination of this data with other data sources is not carried out, the data will furthermore be deleted after a statistical evaluation.

The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 paragraph (1) sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR

Processing of personal data when contacting us

On our website you will find a contact form as well as postal addresses, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses that you can use to contact our company. Additionally, it is also possible to contact the company via LinkedIn. The personal data you provide for this purpose (such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number or address) will be processed only for the purpose of handling your request and communicating with you.

We base the processing on our legitimate interest in being able to contact and communicate with you (Art. 6 para. (1) sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR). If you are interested in our offers, we base the processing on the implementation of pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 para. (1) sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR). Insofar as your request is directed to another company of our Group, we base the transfer to the responsible company on our legitimate interest in targeted communication with you and the best possible processing of your request (Art. 6 para. (1) sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR).

We process the data you provide in the context of contacting and communicating with us until the purpose for processing no longer applies (e.g. after processing of your inquiry has been completed) and no mandatory legal provisions (e.g. retention periods) prevent deletion.

Use of cookies with functional purpose

In order to make the visit of our website even more comfortable for you and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are used as identifiers. We transmit this via your web browser to the hard disk of your computer and can read it during your current visit (so-called "session cookies"). In addition, we also use persistent cookies that are stored on your hard drive for up to a maximum of one year, allowing us to recognize your browser the next time you visit it. Please note that certain cookies are already set as soon as you visit our website. Our cookies are protected against being read by third parties using the security standards of your browser. You have the option to prevent the storage of cookies on your computer through appropriate settings in your browser. However, this may limit the functionality of our websites for you.

The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 paragraph (1) sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR.

Use of pseudo-anonymized user profiles for web analytics


On this website, we use the web analysis service "Matomo" for statistical analysis. Matomo is an open source tool for web analysis from the provider InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand.

We only process pseudonymous data via Matomo for the purpose of a non-personal analysis of the browsing behavior on our website and to gain information about the usage of different components of our website. This analysis allows us to customize our website to the needs of users and to continuously optimize its usability and content.

The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest also results from the purposes described above.

We do not use Matomo in the form of the cloud-hosted variant and only under the strictest data protection settings. This means your IP address is completely masked before any processing of the analysis data and internal identifiers for visitors are replaced by a hash value. The processing we choose via Matomo also takes place without setting a cookie.

By completely masking the IP address, we take special care of your interest in the protection of your personal data. The data will not be used by us at any time to identify you on a personal level and will not be merged with other data.

To process the data collected via Matomo, we use the external IT service provider ratiokontakt GmbH, Biegenhofstraße 13, 96103 Hallstadt, which provides the following services for us: Provision of server capacity as well as technical maintenance services. We ensure the processing of your personal data in accordance with explicit instructions via a concluded data processing agreement.

In principle, LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland ("LinkedIn") is the only responsible controller for the processing of personal data when you visit our LinkedIn page.

LinkedIn also processes, among other things, information about your interaction on our LinkedIn company page. With Page Insights, however, LinkedIn does not provide us with any personal data about you. It is therefore not possible for us to draw conclusions about your natural person via the information of the Page Insights. However, this processing of personal data in the context of Page Insights is done by LinkedIn and us as joint controllers. The processing serves the exercise of our legitimate interests in improving our company page by evaluating the interactions made on our LinkedIn company page. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

We have signed a joint controller agreement with LinkedIn, which sets out the distribution of data protection obligations. You can access the agreement at: https://legal.linkedin.com/pages-joint-controller-addendum.

It is agreed that LinkedIn is responsible for exercising your rights as a data subject under the GDPR. You can exercise your rights via the following link: https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/ask/PPQ?lang=de or contact LinkedIn via the contact details in the Privacy Policy. You may also contact us regarding the exercise of your rights. In such a case, we will forward your request to LinkedIn.

Please note that according to the LinkedIn Privacy Policy, personal data is also processed by LinkedIn in the USA or other third countries. LinkedIn transfers personal data only to countries for which an adequacy decision of the European Commission according to Art. 45 DSGVO exists or on the basis of appropriate guarantees according to Art. 46 DSGVO. We would like to point out that there is no adequate level of data protection in the USA comparable to that in the EU. Therefore, there is a risk for you of governmental access to this data. In addition, legal protection options are currently only available to a limited extent. This risk may also exist with regard to other third countries.

Use of the online download area

When using the online download area, we collect personal data (such as your name and e-mail address) only to the extent provided by you. We only use your data to process your registration in order to grant you access to the desired documents.

The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 paragraph (1) sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR.

Other Recipients

In order for us to process your data in accordance with the purposes described above, it may also be necessary to provide other recipients with your data for processing.

We may transfer personal data to other companies within our group or grant them access to this data. Where this transfer is for administrative purposes, the transfer of data is based on our legitimate business and commercial interests or is made where it is necessary for the fulfillment of our contract-related obligations or where there is consent from the data subjects or legal permission.

We process your personal data with the support of processors who assist us in providing the services (e.g. web hosters, e-mail newsletter dispatch service, merchandise management system, content management system, store system, payment service providers, web agencies). These processors are obliged to strictly protect your personal data and are not allowed to process your personal data for any other purpose than the provision of our services.

Insofar as we use external service providers to process your data, these have been carefully selected and commissioned by us and are regularly monitored. We ensure that personal data is used in accordance with instructions by concluding appropriate processing contracts with commissioned service providers. We limit the transfer of your personal data to what is necessary, taking into account the requirements of data protection law.

Duration of data storage

We process and store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the fulfillment of our contractual and legal obligations or otherwise the purposes pursued with the processing, i.e., for example, for the duration of the entire business relationship (from the initiation, processing to the termination of a contract).

On this basis, personal data is regularly deleted as part of the fulfillment of our contractual and/or legal obligations, unless its temporary further processing is necessary for the following purposes:

  • Fulfillment of legal retention obligations, which result, for example, from the German Handelsgesetzbuch (§§ 238, 257 para. 4 HGB) and the German Abgabenordnung (§ 147 para. 3, 4 AO). The periods specified there for retention or documentation are up to ten years.
  • Preservation of evidence taking into account the statute of limitations. According to Sections 194 et seq. of the German Bürgerlichen Gesetzbuches (BGB), these limitation periods can be up to 30 years, with the regular limitation period being three years.

Our security standards

We take appropriate technical and organizational measures in accordance with the legal requirements, taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing, as well as the different probabilities of occurrence and the extent of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, in order to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.

We use the so-called SSL security system (Secure Socket Layer) for any data transfer in connection with our website and therefore also in connection with the input of personal data. This technology offers a high level of security and is therefore also used, for example, by banks for data protection in online banking. Nevertheless, we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is therefore not possible.

Fulfillment of information obligations according to the GDPR:

Under the terms of the GDPR, you are entitled to the following legal data subjects if their requirements are met:

  • Right to information about your data stored with us in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR,
  • Right to correct incorrect data in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR,
  • Right to delete the data stored by us according to Art. 17 GDPR,
  • Right to restriction of the processing of the data stored with us according to Art. 18 GDPR,
  • Right to data portability according to Art. 20 GDPR,
  • Right of revocation at any time pursuant to Art. 7 (3) GDPR of any consent given to us; this has the consequence that we may no longer continue data processing based on this consent for the future.
  • Right to complain to a competent supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77 GDPR, if you believe that the processing of your personal data violates provisions of the GDPR.

Right of objection

If your personal data are processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR, provided that there are reasons for this arising from your particular situation.

If you wish to exercise your right of objection, simply send an e-mail to datenschutz@adelhelm.de

Obligation to provide data

In principle, you are not obliged to provide us with your personal data. However, if you do not do so, we will not be able to provide you with unrestricted access to our website or answer your inquiries to us. Personal data that we do not absolutely require for the above-mentioned processing purposes are marked accordingly as voluntary information.
