A. General

(1) Definitions

In accordance with Art. 4 GDPR, this data protection notice is based on the following definitions:

  • "Personal data" (Art. 4 No. 1 GDPR) refers to any information which relates to an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject"). A person is considered to be identifiable if they can be directly or indirectly identified, in particular by reference to an identifier or characteristic such as a name, an identification number, an online identifier, location data or through information regarding their physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity characteristics. The identifiability may also be provided through a link to such information or other additional knowledge. The origin, form or embodiment of the information is irrelevant (photographs, video or audio recordings could also contain personal data).
  • “Processing” (Art. 4 No. 2 GDPR) is any operation or procedure which involves the handling of personal data, whether or not by automated (i.e. technology-based) means. This comprises, in particular, the collection (i.e. acquisition), logging, organisation, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, utilisation, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment, combination, restriction, erasure or destruction of personal data, and any change of purpose or intended purpose on which the data processing was originally based.
  • “Controller” (Art. 4 No. 7 GDPR) is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others will determine the purposes and means of the processing the personal data.
  • “Third party” (Art. 4 No. 10 GDPR) refers to any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject or controller, the processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorised to process the personal data; this also includes other legal entities affiliated with the group.
  • “Processor” (Art. 4 No. 8 GDPR) is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency, institution or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller, in particular in accordance with the controller's instructions (e.g. IT service providers). In the sense of data protection law, a processor is in particular not considered to be a third party.
  • “Consent” (Art. 4 No. 11 GDPR) of the data subject designates any freely granted, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the wishes of the data subject in the form of a declaration, statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which they signify their agreement to the processing of personal data which relates to the data subject.

(2) Name and address of the controller responsible for processing

The controller responsible for processing your personal data within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 7 GDPR is considered to be us:

Aliaxis Deutschland GmbH, Steinzeugstraße 50, 68229 Mannheim, T: +49 (0) 621 486-0,,, CEO: Marc Besserer, Koen Cremmery

For more information about our company, please see the legal notice on our website.

(3) Contact details of the Data Protection Officer

Our Data Protection Officer is available at all times to answer any questions you may have and to act as your contact person regarding data protection at our company. The DPO contact details are:

Mr Jörn Menzel, Steinzeugstr. 50, 68229 Mannheim,, T: +49 621 486-1325, F: +49 621 486-25 1325

(4) Legal bases for data processing

In principle, any processing of personal data is prohibited by law and only therefore permitted if the data processing is justified in one of the following cases:

  • Art. 6 para 1 sentence1 lit. a GDPR ("Consent"): If the data subject has voluntarily, in an informed manner and unambiguously indicated by a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act, that they consent to the processing of personal data which therefore relates to them for one or more specific purposes;
  • Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR: If the processing is required to fulfil a contract to which the data subject is party to or to perform pre-contractual measures which must be fulfilled at the data subject's request;
  • Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. c GDPR: If the processing is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which the controller is bound (e.g. a legal obligation regarding data retention);
  • Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. d GDPR: If the processing is required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person;
  • Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. e GDPR: If the processing is required to perform a task which must be carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority which is vested in the controller, or
  • Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR ("Legitimate interests"): If the processing is deemed necessary to protect the legitimate (in particular legal or economic) interests of the controller or a third party, unless the conflicting interests or rights of the data subject override this (in particular if the data subject is hereby considered to be a minor).
  • The storage of information in the end user's terminal equipment or access to information already stored in the end terminal equipment is only permitted if justified in one of the following cases:
  • § 25 para 1 TTDSG (Teleservices Data Protection Act): If the end user has consented based on clear and comprehensive information. Consent must be granted in accordance with Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR;
  • § 25 para 2 No. 1 TTDSG: If the sole purpose is to transmit a message over a public telecommunications network, or
  • § 25 para 2 No. 2 TTDSG: If storage or access is strictly necessary to enable a telemedia service to provide a telemedia service that has been expressly requested by the user.

In the following, we have indicated the applicable legal basis in each case for the processing operations or procedures implemented by our company. Processing may also be based on several legal principles.

(5) Erasure of data and period of storage

Below, we explain the period for which the data will be stored by us for the processing operations we carry out, and when it will be erased or blocked. Your personal data will be erased or blocked once the purpose or legal basis for storage no longer applies unless an explicit storage period is stated below. Your data will generally only be stored on our servers in Germany, subject to any transfer in accordance with the regulations in A. (7) and A. (8).

However, data may be stored beyond the specified time in the event of an (imminent) legal dispute with you or other legal proceedings or if storage is required by legal obligations to which we as the controller are bound (e.g. § 257 HGB (Commercial Code), § 147 AO (Tax Code)). Once the storage period prescribed by the legal regulations expires, the personal data will be blocked or erased unless it is considered that an additional, ongoing period of storage is required by us and a legal basis for such storage therefore exists.

(6) Data security

We implement the appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, data destruction or an unauthorised access by third parties (e.g. TSL encryption for our website), taking into account the state of the art, implementation costs and the nature, scope, context and purpose of the processing at all times, and in view of the existing risks of a data breach (including the probability and impact) for the respective data subject. Our security measures will be continuously improved in accordance with the respective technological developments.

We will be happy to provide you with further information on this upon request. To do this, please contact our Data Protection Officer (see A. (3)).

(7) Collaboration with commissioned processors

Similar to any other larger company, we also contract external domestic and foreign service providers to process our business transactions (e.g. for IT, logistics, telecommunications, sales, distribution and marketing). These service providers only act in accordance with the instructions we issue to them and are under a contractual obligation to comply with the provisions of data protection law within the meaning of Art. 28 GDPR at all times.

Insofar as personal data from you is transferred from us to our subsidiaries or transferred to us from our subsidiaries (e.g. for advertising purposes), this will be implemented on the basis of existing order processing relationships.

(8) Conditions for the transfer of personal data to foreign countries

Your personal data may be transferred or disclosed to third party companies within the framework of our business relationships. These companies could also be located outside the European Economic Area (EEA), i.e. in other foreign countries. This processing takes place exclusively to fulfil contractual and business obligations and to maintain your business relationship with us (the legal basis is Art. 6 para 1 lit b or lit. f respectively pursuant to Art. 44 et seq. GDPR). We will always inform you subsequently of the respective details of the transfer at the respective destinations.

The European Commission certifies data protection which is considered comparable to the EEA standard in some other foreign countries using adequacy decisions (a list of these countries and a copy of the adequacy decisions are available here: However, there may not be a consistently high level of data protection in certain circumstances, due to a lack of legal provisions in other foreign countries to which personal data may be transferred, if applicable. In this case, we always ensure that data protection is sufficiently guaranteed. This is achieved through binding corporate regulations and standard contractual clauses of the European Commission for the protection of personal data in accordance with Art. 46 para 1, 2 lit. c GDPR (the standard contractual clauses of 2021 are available at: at, certificates or recognised codes of conduct). Please contact our Data Protection Officer (see A. (3)), for more information on this.

(9) No automated decision-making (including profiling)

We do not intend to use any personal data collected from you for any automated decision-making process (including profiling).

(10) No obligation to provide personal data

We do not base the conclusion of contracts with our company on the provision of personal data by you in advance. In your role as a contractual partner, you are not fundamentally placed under any legal or contractual obligation to provide us with your personal data; however, we may only be able to provide specific services to a limited extent or not at all if you do not submit the necessary data. Insofar as this should exceptionally be the case within the context of the products we offer, then you will be informed of this separately.

(11) Statutory obligation to transfer certain data

We may, under certain circumstances, be subject to a specific legal or statutory obligation to provide lawfully processed personal data to third parties, in particular to public bodies (Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. c GDPR).

(12) Your rights

You can assert your rights as a data subject regarding your processed personal data at any time via the contact details provided at the beginning of A. (2). As the data subject, you have the right:

  • to request information about your data processed by us in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR. In particular, you can obtain information about the purposes of processing, the category of data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the anticipated retention period, the right to correct, erase or restrict data processing or object to such processing, and the right to lodge a complaint, request the origin of your data if it was not collected by us, and can enquire regarding the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, if necessary, conclusive information about the details of such;
  • to immediately request the correction of incorrect data or the completion of your data stored by us in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR;
  • to request the erasure of your data stored by us, unless the processing is necessary to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information, to fulfil a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or to assert, exercise or defend a legal claim in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR;
  • to request the restriction of the processing of your data if you dispute the accuracy of the data or the processing is unlawful in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR;
  • to receive the data you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request transmission to another controller (“data portability”) in accordance with Art. 20 GDPR;
  • to lodge an objection against processing in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR, insofar as the processing is pursuant to Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. e or lit. f GDPR. This applies in particular if the processing is not necessary to fulfil a contract with you. When exercising this objection, please explain the reasons why we should not process your data as we do, unless you are objecting against direct advertising. In the event of a justified objection, we will analyse the situation and will either cease or modify the data processing or state our compelling legitimate reasons on the basis of which we will continue such processing;
  • in accordance with Art. 7 para 3 GDPR, your consent granted once (also before the GDPR came into force, i.e. prior to 25/5/2018), i.e. your voluntary informed and unambiguous will clarified in a statement or other clear affirmative act that you agree to the processing of the respective personal data for one or more specific purposes, may be revoked at any time if such consent has been granted. This means that we may no longer be able to continue the data processing based on this consent in the future
  • in accordance with Art. 77 GDPR, you may complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data in our company, for example to our competent data protection supervisory authority: the State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information Baden-Württemberg Lautenschlagerstr. 20, 70173 Stuttgart, Tel.: 0711 6155410; email:

(2) Personal data processed

When you use the websites for information purposes, we collect, store and process the following categories of personal data:

“Log data”: When you visit our websites, a log data record (server log files) is stored temporarily and anonymously on our web server. This comprises of:

  • website from which the page was requested (the referrer URL)
  • name and URL of the website requested
  • date and time of access
  • description of the type, language and version of web browser used
  • IP address of the requesting computer, which is truncated to avoid any personal references

  • operating system
  • message stating if access was successful (access status/http status code)
  • GMT time zone difference

"Contact form data": If contact forms are used, the data transmitted is processed (e.g. gender, last name and first name, address, company, email address and the time of transmission).

In addition to the use of our website for information only, we offer a subscription to our newsletter which provides reports on current developments in commercial law and events. If you sign up for our newsletter, the following “newsletter data” will be collected, stored and processed by us:

  • website from which the page was requested (the referrer URL)
  • date and time of access
  • description of the type of web browser used
  • IP address of the requesting computer, which is truncated to avoid any personal references

  • date and time of login and confirmation

Please note that we evaluate your user behaviour when we send the newsletter. The emails sent to conduct the evaluation contain web beacons or tracking pixels which represent single-pixel image files that are stored on our website. To perform the evaluations, we link the above-mentioned data and the web beacons with your email address and an individual ID. Links contained in the newsletter also contain this ID. The data is only collected in a pseudonymised form, i.e. the IDs are therefore not linked to your other personal data, and any direct personal reference is excluded.

(3) Purpose and legal basis for data processing

We process the personal data specified above in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR, other relevant data protection regulations and only to the extent necessary. The purposes mentioned also represent our legitimate interests to the extent that the processing of personal data is based on Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

The processing of log data is for statistical purposes and to improve the quality of our website, in particular the stability and security of the connection (the legal basis is Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. a or lit. f GDPR).

The processing of data entered on the contact form is to process customer enquiries (the legal basis is Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. b or lit. f GDPR).

The newsletter data is processed for the purpose of sending the newsletter. When you sign up for our newsletter, you consent to the processing of your personal data (the legal basis is Art. 6 para 1 lit. a GDPR). When you sign up for our newsletter we use the “double opt-in procedure”. Therefore, once you sign up, we will send you an email to the email address you provided which requests confirmation that you would like to receive the newsletter. The purpose of this procedure is to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify any potential misuse of your personal data. You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can declare your revocation by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter email, via email to [company email address] or by sending a message using the contact details provided in the legal notice.

If the data processing requires information to be stored in your terminal device or access to information that is already stored in the terminal device, the legal basis for this is § 25 para 1, 2 TTDSG (Teleservices Data Protection Act).

(4) Duration of data processing

Your data will only be processed for as long as necessary to achieve the processing purposes stated above; the legal bases specified in the context of the processing purposes apply accordingly.

Third parties commissioned by us will store your data on their system for as long as necessary to ensure the provision of their services to us in accordance with the respective contract.

More information on the storage period is available under A. (5) and the cookie policy [link to the cookie policy].

(5) Transmission of personal data to third parties; basis for justification

The following categories of recipients, who are generally deemed to be commissioned processors (see A. (7)), may have access to your personal data:

  • Service providers used to operate our website and to process the data stored or transmitted by the systems (e.g. for data centre services, payment processing, IT security). The legal basis for the transfer is then Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. b or lit. f GDPR, insofar as these are not considered to be commissioned processors;
  • Government agencies, bodies/local authorities, insofar as this is required to fulfil a legal obligation. The legal basis for transfer is then Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. c GDPR;
  • Persons who are commissioned to carry out our business transactions (e.g. auditors, banks, insurance companies, legal advisors, supervisory authorities, parties involved in company acquisitions or the establishment of joint ventures). The legal basis for transfer is then Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. b or lit. f GDPR.

Our website is hosted by “ETIX Everywhere" located in Sainghin-en-Mélantois in France.

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files that are assigned to and stored on your hard drive by the browser you are using via a characteristic string and through which specific information can flow to the site that sets the cookie. Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer and cannot therefore damage it. They serve to make the Internet offering more user-friendly and effective overall, i.e. more pleasant for you.

Cookies may contain data that can detect the device used. However, in some cases cookies only contain information on certain settings which are not personally identifiable. Cookies cannot directly identify a user.

A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted again once you close your browser, and permanent cookies which are stored beyond the duration of the individual session. A distinction is made between cookies with respect to their function.

  • Technical cookies: these are considered mandatory to navigate within the website, to use basic functions and to ensure the security of the website; they do not collect information about you for marketing purposes nor do they store information on the websites you have visited;
  • Performance cookies: these collect information about how you use our website, which pages you visit and, e.g. whether errors occur when using the website; they do not collect information which could identify you; all the information collected is anonymous and used exclusively to improve our website and discern what subject matter is of interest to our users;

This applies in particular to the use of performance, advertising, targeting or sharing cookies. In addition, we will only transmit your personal data processed through cookies to third parties if you have granted your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.

b) Cookie policy

For more information about which cookies we use and how you can manage your cookie settings and disable certain types of tracking, please see our cookie policy.

c) Integration of third-party services/social media

Embedding of YouTube videos on our website

We have embedded YouTube videos on individual websites which are stored on and which can be played directly from our website. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. The videos are embedded in “extended data protection mode”, which means that no data about you as a user is transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos will the following data be transferred.

If you decide to play an embedded video, the data described below will be passed on to YouTube, over which we have no influence. When you play an embedded video, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page on our website and other data described below, the extent of which we have no knowledge. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account you used to log in, or in the absence of a user account. If you are logged in to YouTube, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish it to be associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube saves your data as usage profiles and uses it for advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. This type of evaluation can be carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide targeted advertising and to notify other YouTube users of your activities on our website. You may object to the creation of such user profiles, although we recommend that you contact YouTube directly to lodge your objection.

YouTube is responsible under data protection law for the data processed by YouTube. Additional information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing is available in the YouTube privacy guidelines. These contain further information about your rights and setting options to protect your privacy: YouTube is under an obligation to us to process personal data in compliance with the legal provisions of the GDPR.

Our profile in social networks

We are present in various social networks. Our presence on the Internet is currently operated by the following providers:

  • LinkedIn, LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, in Europe: LinkedIn Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Gardner House 4, 5, 6, Dublin 2, Ireland.

We rely on the technical platform and services of the providers to obtain these information services. Please note that you use our presence on social media platforms and the functions provided by such at your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (e.g. comments, sharing, rating, etc.). When you visit our sites, the social media platform providers collect, among others, your IP address and other information on your device in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us as the account operators with statistical information on your interactions with us.

The providers are under an obligation to us to assume primary responsibility under the GDPR for the processing of this data, to fulfil all the requirements of the GDPR with respect to this data and to make the essential details of this obligation available to data subjects. This data processing is to serve our (and your) legitimate interest in improving the user experience based on user preferences when visiting our social media websites. The legal basis for the data processing is therefore Art. 6 para 1 lit. f) GDPR. The social media providers also use cookies which are stored on your device when you visit our fan page, even if you do not have your own profile for the respective social media provider or are not logged into it during your visit to our fan page. These cookies enable the respective social media providers to create user profiles based on your preferences and interests and to display targeted advertising (within and outside the respective social media platform). Cookies will remain on your device until you delete them. You can find details about this in the data protection declaration of the respective social media provider.

If you use our profiles on social networks to contact us (e.g. if you create your own posts, respond to one of our posts or send us private messages), we will process the data you provide exclusively to enable us to contact you. The legal basis for the data processing is therefore Art. 6 para 1 lit. a) and b) GDPR. We delete stored data after 14 months once the storage of such is no longer necessary or you request us to delete it; in the event of a legal obligation to retain data, we will restrict the processing of such data accordingly.

As a provider of the information service, we only process the data you provide to us to enable the use of such service and to make some interaction possible. For example, if you ask a question that we can only answer by email, we will store your information in accordance with the general data processing principles we describe in this privacy policy. The legal basis for processing your data on the social media platform is Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

You can contact us or the provider of the social media platform to exercise your rights as a data subject. If one party is not responsible for providing a response or requires information from the other party, we or the provider will then forward your request to the respective partner. Please contact the operator of the social media platform directly if you have any questions about creating a profile or the processing of your data when using the website. Please contact us using the contact details above if you have any questions about the processing of your interaction with us on our website.

The providers state in their data protection policies what information the social media platform receives and how it is used (see link in the table). They also include information on contact options and setting options for ads. For more information on social networks and how you can protect your data, please also visit

Microsoft 365 Dynamics Cloud for Marketing

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Marketing cookies in forms

This website uses forms provided by Microsoft Dynamics 365 Marketing.

This enables a transfer of collected data from the website directly to our CRM system. Microsoft Dynamics is a service provided by Microsoft Ireland Operations Ltd, One Microsoft Place, South County Business Park, Leopardstown Dublin 18, Ireland.

When you submit a form to us, Dynamics 365 Marketing correlates the copy ID with the incoming contact details. The copy ID is then assigned to a Dynamics 365 Marketing contact ID. This enables us to determine which browser you used when completing the registration form. We then use this data to analyse the access behaviour on the relevant form pages on our website and to offer you a personalised experience. If this cookie is not used, you will be unable to access the registration forms and will therefore be unable to sign up for our marketing mailouts. Similarly, existing data cannot be edited in the subscription centre.
