Data Protection Declaration

I. Introduction

With the following information, we would like to give you, the "data subject" an overview of how Minitüb GmbH processes personal data and your rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The processing of personal data takes place in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations.

As the responsible party, we have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can fundamentally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, we also offer you the option to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone or by post.

IV. Definitions

This data protection declaration is based on the terms of the GDPR. To simplify understanding, we would like to explain some of the important terms in this context:  

  • Personal data: Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. A natural person is considered to be identifiable if, directly or indirectly, in particular by means of assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special characteristics, the expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person can be identified.
  • Data subject: Affected person is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the responsible party (our company).
  • Processing: Processing is any process or series of processes carried out with or without the help of automated processes in connection with personal data such as the collection, recording, organization, ordering, storage, adaptation or modification, reading, querying, use, disclosure by transmission, distribution or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.
  • Recipient: Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body to which personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, authorities that may receive personal data as part of a specific investigation under union law or the law of the member states are not considered recipients.
  • Third party: A third party is a natural or legal person, authority, agency or other body apart from the data subject, the responsible party, the processor and the persons who are authorized under the direct responsibility of the responsible party or processor to process the personal data.
  • Consent: Consent is any declaration of intent made voluntarily by data subjects for a specific case in an informed manner and unequivocally in the form of a declaration or another clear confirming action by which the data subjects indicate their consent to the processing of their personal data.

V. Legal basis for processing
  • Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR 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 to fulfill a contract to which you are a party, the processing is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services.
  • If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR.
  • Ultimately, processing operations can be based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subjects do not outweigh them. 

VI. Technology
1. SSL / TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that "https://" appears in the address line of the browser instead of "http://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.

2. Data collection when visiting the website ("server log files")
Every time you or an automated system access our website, we process data that your browser transmits to our server (in so-called "server log files"). This data is stored in the server's log files. The following can be recorded:
  • browser types and versions used,
  • operating system used by the accessing system,
  • website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer),
  • sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
  • date and time of access to the website,
  • internet protocol address (IP address),
  • internet service provider of the accessing system.

We process this data in order to deliver the content of our website correctly, to guarantee the permanent functionality of our IT systems and the technology of our website and to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber-attack. This collected data and information is evaluated statistically with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data provided by a data subject. In principle, deletion of the server log files takes place after 14 days. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest for the purposes listed above.

3. Google Web Fonts (local hosting)
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. The Google fonts are installed locally. There is no connection to Google servers.
Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at and in Google's data protection declaration:

VII. Geo-IP evaluation

When you visit our website, we evaluate your IP address to see from which country you are accessing our website (hereinafter "Geo-IP"). The reason is that we can only make our shop available to you in certain countries. Therefore, we do not provide the "Login" and "Register" fields on our website for users from countries in which we cannot offer the shop. One of the reasons for this is that we only supply certain countries through distributors. In the case of website visitors who access our website with a Geo-IP in which we provide the shop, this means that we have already preselected the corresponding country in the input mask during registration. The legal basis for processing your personal data in this context is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR . Our overriding legitimate interest is the individual presentation of individual functions depending on the country of the Geo-IP to be accessed. This check of the Geo-IP takes place every time you visit our website.

VIII. Cookies

Our legitimate interest is to enable a user-friendly and as simple as possible presentation of various functions for our website visitors. In this context, your data will not be passed on to third parties and will generally be stored for one year and then deleted.

X. Newsletter dispatch
1. Advertising newsletter
Our website gives you the opportunity to subscribe to our company’s newsletter. Regarding cookies that are used in this context, we refer to the topic “VIII. Cookies ” in this data protection declaration.
In connection with the newsletter, we process your personal data for the dispatch and the associated analyses of the newsletter with regard to e.g. opening rates, clicks to improve our newsletter in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. on the basis of your consent, which you have given us with your registration. We also use Sendinblue, of Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenickerstraße 126, 10179 Berlin, for the dispatch and analyses. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail using the double opt-in procedure will be sent to the e-mail address you initially entered for receiving the newsletter. This confirmation e-mail is used to check whether you, as the owner of the e-mail address, have authorized the receipt of the newsletter.
When registering for the newsletter, we also store your IP address and the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to understand the (possible) misuse of your e-mail address at a later time and therefore serves our legal protection. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.
You can unsubscribe from the newsletter yourself at any time using the "Unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. Find more information about Sendinblue at:

2. Sending out newsletters to existing customers   
If you have provided us with your e-mail address when purchasing products or services, we reserve the right to send you regular offers from our range of products or services similar to those already purchased from you by e-mail. We do not have to obtain any separate consent from you for this in accordance with Section 7 (3) UWG. In this respect, data processing takes place solely on the basis of our legitimate interest in personalized direct advertising in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. After receipt of your objection, the use of your e-mail address for advertising purposes will be stopped immediately.
In this context, we use the provider Sendinblue and monitor evaluations (opening rates, clicks, etc.) in order to measure the success of our newsletter and in order to constantly improve (See advertising newsletter section above).

XI. Our activities in social networks
So that we can also communicate with you on social networks and provide information about our services, we are represented there with our own pages. If you visit one of our social media pages, we are jointly responsible with the provider of the respective social media platform in terms of the processing operations triggered thereby, which relate to personal data, within the definition of Art. 26 GDPR. 
We are not the original provider of these pages, but only use them within the scope of the options offered by the respective provider.
As a precaution, we would like to point out that your data may also be processed outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. Use can therefore expose you to data protection risks, as it may be more difficult to protect your rights e.g. for information, deletion, objection, etc. In addition, data processing in the social networks is often carried out directly for advertising purposes or for analysis of user behavior by the provider, which lies outside the range of our influence. If usage profiles are created by the provider, cookies are often used or the usage behavior is assigned directly to your own membership profile of the social networks (if you are logged in).
The processing of personal data described is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR based on our legitimate interest and the legitimate interest of the respective provider in order to communicate with you in a timely manner or to be able to inform you about our services. If you have to give the respective providers consent for data processing as a user, the legal basis relates to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR.
Since we have no access to the providers’ databases, we would like to point out that it is best to assert your rights (e.g. to information, correction, deletion, etc.) directly with the respective provider. Here we have listed further information regarding the processing of your data in the social networks we use and describe the option to exercise your right of objection or revocation (so-called opt-out) at these respective providers:

We link to our social media presence at LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland. Together with us, they are responsible for the processing of your data. 
Our website contains solely a link and not a social media plug-in. Therefore, simply visiting our website does not result in the social media platform being informed of your visit. Once you click on their link, however, your data will be processed by the social media platform. 
You can find LinkedIn's privacy policy here:

We run our own channel on YouTube to present our company and our products. YouTube is operated by Google Ireland Limited., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. With them we are jointly responsible. On our website, there is only a link and not a social media plug-in. In this context, data may also be transmitted to Google LLC in the USA.

XII. Establishing contact via another communication channel

In this context, we process the data you provided us on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR in the pre-contractual area and for processing your order. If your information indicates a need for consultation, e.g. due to the complexity of the products, we will contact you again.
