Data protection

Thank you for visiting our website. Protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below you will find extensive information about how we handle your data.

At any time you have the right to obtain free information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data. You also have a right to correct, block or delete this data.

Furthermore, you also have a right of appeal to the responsible supervisory authority too.

1. Access data and hosting

You may visit our website without revealing any personal information. With every visit on the website, the web server stores automatically only a so-called server log file which contains e.g. the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the request, the volume of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the request. 

These access data are analysed exclusively for the purpose of ensuring the smooth operation of the website and improving our offer. This serves according to art. 6 (1) 1 lit f GDPR the protection of our legitimate interests in the proper presentation of our offer that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests. All access data are deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit on our website.

Server log files:
The provider of the pages collects and automatically stores information in so-called server log files that your browser automatically transmitted to us. These are:

  • a  the browser types and versions used,
  • b. the operating system used by the accessing system,
  • c. the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer *), * referrer in the World Wide Web refers to the website via which the user has come to the current website or file. For an HTTP request (for example, a web page or a picture), the web browser sends the URL of the original web page to the web server.
  • d. the sub-web pages, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
  • e. the date and time of access to the website,
  • f. an internet protocol address (IP address),
  • g. the internet service provider of the accessing system,
  • h. other similar data and information used in the case of attacks on our information technology systems.


When using this general data and information, KLEBCHEMIE M. G. Becker GmbH & Co. KG does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. A merge of this data with other data sources will not be done. Rather, this information is needed to:

  • a. to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
  • b. to ensure the permanent functioning of our information technology systems and the technology of our website.
  • c. to provide law enforcement with the necessary information for prosecution in the event of a cyberattack.

These data are collected only to a technically necessary extent. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. The user may not object. The anonymously collected data and information are evaluated by KLEBCHEMIE M. G. Becker GmbH & Co. KG on the one hand statistically and further with the aim to increase data protection and data security in order to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person and therefore do not provide any conclusions about individual persons. This means that your personal information is protected at all times. The basis for data processing is article 6 paragraph 1 section F of the GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Third-party hosting services

Data are also processed by a third-party provider that we have engaged to render hosting and website presentation services on our behalf. This provider processes on its servers all data that are collected in the manner specified below when you visit our website or fill in forms made available for this purpose in our online shop. Data are processed on other servers only in the scope described herein. This service provider is based in an EU or EEA member state.

2. Data collection and use for processing the contract

We collect personal data that you disclose to us whenever you place an order or contact us (e.g. via contact form or by email). Mandatory fields are marked as such because we absolutely need those data to perform the contract or process your contact request, and you would otherwise not be able to complete your order or send the contact request. It is evident in each input form what data are collected. We use the data that you disclose to us to perform the contract and process your enquiries according to art. 6 (1) 1 lit b GDPR. Upon contract completion, any further processing of your data will be restricted, and your data will be deleted upon expiry of any retention period applicable under relevant statutory regulations, unless you expressly consent to the further use of your data or we reserve the right to further use your data in the scope and manner permitted by law, of which we inform you in this notice.

3. Transfer of data

We disclose your data to the shipping company in the scope required for the delivery of the ordered goods according to art. 6 (1) 1 lit. b GDPR. Depending on the payment service provider you have selected during the ordering process, we disclose the payment details collected for order processing purposes to the bank commissioned to handle the payment and, as the case may be, to the payment service provider commissioned by us or to the selected payment service. Some of those data are collected by the selected payment service providers themselves if you open an account with them. In such a case, during the ordering process, you must register with your payment service provider using your access data. In this respect, the privacy notice of the relevant payment service provider applies.
