“Personal” data is defined as information about the personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable individual: this includes in particular the name and address, as well as the member name, password and IP address.

  • “Collection” of data means the procurement of data.

  • The term “use” means all other uses not covered by the term “processing”.
  1. Collection and processing of data
  • Cookies
    Data are collected and stored on this website for marketing and optimisation purposes. User profiles are created from these data under a pseudonym. Cookies may be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the visitor’s internet browser. The cookies enable the recognition of the internet browser. Without the explicit consent of the person concerned the data collected in this way will not be used to identify the visitor to the website personally and will not be merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. Consent to data collection and storage may be revoked with future effect at any time by notifying Seikel GmbH accordingly.
  • Contractual relationship
    The personal data provided by the customer are collected and processed in the course of establishing the contractual relationship between Seikel GmbH and the customer.
  1. Use and forwarding of personal data
  • Own use
    Personal data provided by the customer are used to execute and perform the contract, to answer questions and provide offers and for technical administration.
  • Forwarding of personal data
    The personal data will only be forwarded or otherwise transmitted to third parties if this is necessary for the purposes of executing the contract, for billing purposes or if the customer has given their prior consent.
  • Forwarding in other cases
    Otherwise the data will only be forwarded in accordance with data protection legislation or by order of public authorities, courts of law and the tax authority or in the event of third-party claims due to a potential breach of intellectual property rights (copyright, brand rights and other ancillary copyrights) by a rightsholder.
  1. Deletion of stored data, information, blocking and revocation of consent, contacts
  • Deletion, blocking after the contract has come to an end
    When the contractual relationship or the other use comes to an end the customer’s personal data will be deleted directly, unless it is required for further processing of the contract. Data will be blocked rather than deleted if so required by the archival requirements defined in statutes, articles of association or contract.
  • Withdrawal of consent
    The customer may withdraw their consent to the collection and processing of personal data at any time with future effect. To do so it is sufficient to send an email to Please note the information in clause 4 on “Deletion, blocking after the contract has come to an end”.
  • Right to information, rectification, blocking or deletion
    In accordance with the German Federal Data Protection Act customers have a right to free information about the data stored on them and if relevant a right to have this data rectified, blocked or deleted.
