Privacy Policy

1. Introduction

We would like to use the information below to provide you "data subject" with an overview of our processing of your personal data and your rights under data protection law. It is generally possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you wish to make use of special services offered by our company through our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent.

Personal data, such as your name, address or email address, is always processed in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the Packsize GmbH. The aim of this Privacy Notice is to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process.

As the data controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are free to submit personal data on alternative ways, such as by phone or by post to us.

2. Data controller

The data controller, as defined by the GDPR, is:

Packsize GmbH

Herringhauser Str. 35

3. Data protection officer

You can reach the data protection officer as follows:

You may contact our data protection officer directly at any time if you have any questions or suggestions regarding data protection.

4. Definitions

This Privacy Notice is based on the terminology used by the European legislature and legislature in the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our privacy policy should be easy to read and understand, both for the public and for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain in advance the terminology used. Among other things, we use the following terms in this privacy policy.

We use the following terms in this Privacy Notice, among others:

a. Personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b. Data subject

A Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller (our company).

c. Processing

Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

d. Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

e. Profiling

Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data which consists in using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location.

f. Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g. Data processor

Data processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

h. Recipient

A recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.

i. Third party

Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor, are authorised to process the personal data.

j. Consent

Consent means any freely given specific and informed indication of the data subject's wishes in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

5. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR (icw § 25 (1) German Telecommunications-Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG)) serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. c) GDPR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 (1) lit. d) GDPR.

Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary for the protection of a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not overweigh. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European law. In this respect, the legislature took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (Recital 47, Sentence 2 GDPR)..

Our offer is inherently aimed at adults. Persons under 16 years of age may not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. We do not request personal data from children and adolescents, do not collect it and do not pass it on to third parties.

6. Disclosure of data to third parties

Your personal data will not be conveyed to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.

We will only share/convey your personal data with third parties if:

1. you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR,

2. the disclosure is permissible in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR to protect our legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data,

3. in the event that a legal obligation exists for the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. c) GDPR, as well as

In the context of the processing operations described in this privacy statement, personal data may be transferred to the USA. Companies in the USA only have an adequate level of data protection if they have certified themselves under the EU-US Data Privacy Framework and thus the adequacy decision of the EU Commission pursuant to Art. 45 GDPR applies. We have explicitly mentioned this in the privacy policy for the service providers concerned. In order to protect your data in all other cases, we have concluded commissioned processing agreements based on the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission. If the standard contractual clauses are not sufficient to establish an adequate level of security, your consent can serve as the legal basis for the transfer to third countries in accordance with Article 49 (1) a) of the GDPR. This sometimes does not apply in the case of a data transfer to third countries for which the European Commission has issued an adequacy decision pursuant to Art. 45 of the GDPR.

Your personal data will not be conveyed to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.

We will only share/convey your personal data with third parties if:

1. you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR,

2. the disclosure is permissible in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR to protect our legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data,

3. in the event that a legal obligation exists for the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. c) GDPR, as well as

4. this is legally permissible and necessary according to Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR for the processing of contractual relationships with you.

In the context of the processing operations described in this privacy statement, personal data may be transferred to the USA. Companies in the USA only have an adequate level of data protection if they have certified themselves under the EU-US Data Privacy Framework and thus the adequacy decision of the EU Commission pursuant to Art. 45 GDPR applies. We have explicitly mentioned this in the privacy policy for the service providers concerned. In order to protect your data in all other cases, we have concluded commissioned processing agreements based on the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission. If the standard contractual clauses are not sufficient to establish an adequate level of security, your consent pursuant to Article 49 (1) a) of the GDPR may serve as the legal basis for the transfer to third countries. This sometimes does not apply in the case of a data transfer to third countries for which the European Commission has issued an adequacy decision pursuant to Article 45 of the GDPR.

9. Contents of our website

9.1 Registration as a user

You have the option of registering on our website by providing personal data.

Which personal data is transmitted to us in this process can be seen from the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data you enter is collected and stored exclusively for internal use by us and for our own purposes. We may arrange for data to be passed on to one or more data processors, for example a parcel service provider, who will also use the personal data exclusively for an internal use attributable to us.

By registering on our website, the IP address assigned by your internet service provider (ISP), the date and the time of registration are also stored. This is done only for the purpose of preventing our services from being misused. If necessary, this data may be used to clarify the situation surrounding any crimes committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for our protection. As a matter of principle, this data is not disclosed to third parties. This does not apply if we are legally obliged to pass on the data or if the data is passed on for the purpose of criminal prosecution.

Your registration, including voluntary provision of personal data, also serves us to offer you content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have it completely erased from our database.

Upon request, we will provide you at any time with information about which personal data is stored about you. Furthermore, we will correct or delete personal data at your request, insofar as this does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations. A data protection officer named in this Privacy Policy and all other employees are available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.

The processing of your data is in the interest of a convenient and easy use of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR.

9.2 Contact support / Contact form

Personal data is collected when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Which data is collected in the case of the use of a contact form can be seen from the respective contact form. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of answering your request or for contacting you and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. If your contact is aimed at concluding a contract, the additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your request; this is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter concerned has been conclusively clarified and the deletion does not conflict with any legal obligations to retain data.

10. Newsletters

10.1 Newsletter for regular customers (without registration)

If you have provided us with your email address when purchasing goods or services, we may periodically email you offers for similar goods or services to those you have already purchased from our range.

In this respect, the data processing is carried out solely on the basis of our legitimate interest in personalized direct advertising in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. If you have initially objected to the use of your e-mail address for this purpose, no e-mails will be sent by us. You are entitled to object to the use of your e-mail address for the aforementioned advertising purpose at any time with effect for the future by notifying the responsible person named at the beginning.

1. You have a valid e-mail address and

2. You have registered for newsletter delivery.

For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address that you entered for the first time for the newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to verify that you, as the owner of the e-mail address, have authorized the receipt of the newsletter.

When you register for the newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by your Internet service provider (ISP) of the IT system used by you at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of your e-mail address at a later date and therefore serves our legal protection.

The personal data collected in the context of a registration for the newsletter will be used exclusively for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a related registration, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in technical circumstances. No personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by you at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that you have given us for the newsletter dispatch can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking the consent, you will find a corresponding link in each newsletter. Furthermore, it is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter mailing directly on our website at any time or to inform us of this in another way.

The legal basis for data processing for the purpose of sending newsletters is Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR.
