We process your data only if an applicable law allows this. Among other things, we will base the processing of your data on the following legal bases. Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of legal bases, but is an example that should make the legal basis more transparent.

Fulfillment of a contract / pre-contractual measures (Article 6 (1) sentence 1 (b) DSGVO):
In order to initiate or execute your contract with Schotten & Hansen GmbH, we need access to certain data.

Fulfillment of a legal obligation (Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (c) DSGVO):
Schotten & Hansen GmbH is subject to a number of statutory requirements. To meet these requirements, we must process certain data.

Preservation of legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR):
Schotten & Hansen GmbH will process certain data in order to safeguard its interests or those of third parties. However, this only applies if your interests do not predominate in individual cases.



Schotten & Hansen GmbH processes your personal data in order to initiate and fulfill the contract with you. It covers all contractual services, shipping and billing information and communication with you. The legal basis is the processing for contract fulfillment and contract execution. For the purpose of fulfilling the contract, we also transmit your data to third parties and processors (for example, transport service providers and publishers).


We use your name, address and e-mail address to send you information about goods, services and events of Schotten & Hansen GmbH. There is no transfer of your personal data to third parties for advertising purposes. Our homepage uses cookies exclusively for storing the preferred display language of the visitor. The data you give us when using the contact form on our website will be transmitted to our server, where it will be converted into an e-mail and sent to us. These data are collected and used exclusively for processing your request. If you use external links offered within the framework of our Internet pages, this Privacy Policy does not extend to these links. Insofar as we offer links, we affirm that at the time of the link setting no violations of the applicable law on the linked websites were identified. However, we have no influence on the compliance of other providers with privacy and security regulations. Therefore, please inform yourself on the websites of the other providers also about the privacy statements provided there.


There is no transfer of your personal data to market and polling institutes. Data analyzes take place anonymously and serve exclusively to optimize your own sales activities.


The Schotten & Hansen GmbH transmits your data in the event of a credit risk (name, address, mailing address, information on the company and, if necessary, contract and claims data) for the purpose of creditworthiness and to check deliverability of the specified address and for the purpose of collection processing to the IHD Gesellschaft für Kredit und Forderungsmanagement mbH, Augustinusstr. 11 B, 50226 Frechen, and possibly to other cooperating credit reporting agencies. The legal basis of this transfer is Article 6 (1) of the DSGVO and Article 6 (1) of the DSGVO. Transfers on the basis of Art. 6 I f DSGVO may only be made to the extent necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company and do not outweigh the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject requiring the protection of personal data.

This website uses the open-source web analysis service Matomo. Matomo uses technologies that make it possible to recognize the user across multiple pages with the aim of analyzing the user patterns (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information recorded by Matomo about the use of this website will be stored on our server. Prior to archiving, the IP address will first be anonymized. Through Matomo, we are able to collect and analyze data on the use of our website-by-website visitors. This enables us to find out, for instance, when which page views occurred and from which region they came. In addition, we collect various log files (e.g. IP address, referrer, browser, and operating system used) and can measure whether our website visitors perform certain actions (e.g. clicks, purchases, etc.). The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user patterns, in order to optimize the operator’s web offerings and advertising. If a corresponding agreement has been requested (e.g. an agreement to the storage of cookies), the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; the agreement can be revoked at any time.

• IP anonymization

For analysis with Matomo we use IP anonymization. Your IP address is shortened before the analysis, so that it is no longer clearly assignable to you.

• Hosting

We host Matomo exclusively on our own servers so that all analysis data remains with us and is not passed on.


Your personal data are also used by other companies that are working on behalf of Schotten & Hansen GmbH (processor) or in the context of business partnerships of Schotten & Hansen GmbH (third parties). Possible recipients of your data are e.g. Local publishers and service partners, IT service providers, transport service providers and consulting companies. For details we refer to the numbers 4.1 to 4.4.

Vimeo Without Tracking (Do-Not-Track)
This website uses plugins of the Vimeo video portal. The provider is Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. Whenever you visit one of our pages featuring Vimeo videos, a connection with the servers of Vimeo is established. In conjunction with this, the Vimeo server receives information about which of our sites you have visited. Vimeo also receives your IP address. However, we have set up Vimeo in such a way that Vimeo cannot track your user activities and does not place any cookies. We use Vimeo to make our online presentation attractive for you. This is a legitimate interest on our part pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. If a respective declaration of consent was requested (e.g. concerning the storage of cookies), processing shall occur exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; the given consent may be revoked at any time. Data transmission to the US is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European Commission and, according to Vimeo, on “legitimate business interests”. Details can be found here: https://vimeo.com/privacy. For more information on the handling of user data, please consult Vimeo’s data privacy policy at: https://vimeo.com/privacy


Due to the longevity and the individual production character of our products, we would like to be able to provide information on follow-up requests (for example service requests, stain removal, supplementary orders) as long as possible. For this reason, we only delete or pseudonymise customer and order data after expiration of the legal retention periods, if you so desire. The basis for this is therefore a balance of interests for your and our benefit. Please send your deletion or pseudonymization request to kontakt@schotten-hansen.com


We are happy to provide you with information about which personal data you have stored with us and to whom we may have given them. You can have this data corrected, pseudonymized after expiry of the legal retention periods, or blocked for certain purposes and only processed to a limited extent. You have the right to object to the processing of your data for advertising purposes. You have the right to contact the competent supervisory authority, the Bavarian State Office for Data Protection Supervision, if you have any questions or complaints. You have the right to receive the personal data relating to you in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to have it transmitted by us to another person in charge. To exercise your rights, please contact kontakt@schotten-hansen.com
