Personal data that we collect about you
Personal data are particulars about the personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person such as your correct name, your date of birth, your address and your telephone number. Data that may not be directly linked to your true identity, such as information recorded about the number of users of a website, are not personal data. If you register with our website, we will collect login data that we use to monitor and improve our website in addition to our procedures and processing methods. We collect your personal information if you voluntarily send it to us directly or via our website. This includes information such as title, name or email address as well as other voluntarily granted information that you give to us by completing a contact form or otherwise corresponding with us or using other functions on our website. On some pages on our website, you will be asked to enter certain personal information. If personal information has to be provided so that the services offered can be used, this will be stated prior to collection, so that you have the option to voluntarily agree or reject our services. You can provide other personal data that is not required in order to use our services voluntarily. You decide yourself whether or not you would like to provide any personal data.
1. Purposes and legal basis for processing
1.1 Legal basis of data processing
Insofar as we obtain consent for the processing of your personal data, the legal basis for the processing of your data is point a of Article 6(1) GDPR.
If we process your personal data because this is necessary to fulfil a contract or due to a quasi-contractual relationship with you, the legal basis for the processing of your data is point b of Article 6(1) GDPR. When you contact us (e.g. via contact form or email), we process your information to process the query and for the event of any final questions. If data protection takes place to carry out precontractual measures due to a query from you or if you are already our customer, we act in accordance with this legal basis when executing the contract, so that we can fulfil our contractual obligations towards you. The collection of this data is always required when entering into a contract. The deletion of data takes place once the guarantee periods and statutory storage periods have expired.
Insofar as we process your personal data to meet a legal obligation, the legal basis for the processing of your data is point c of Article 6(1) GDPR. We use your data when fulfilling legal obligations, especially those arising from tax and commercial law as well as supplementary criminal laws, or regulations to protect public safety and order, where obliged to do so by law.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is point f of Article 6(1) GDPR if the processing of your personal data is required to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and your interests, basic rights and basic freedoms do not require your personal data to be protected.
A legitimate interest exists e.g. in answering your email. This also includes the recognition and prevention of fraud and criminal acts and to establish revision safety. In this respect, we use your data to guarantee IT security. We use your master data and your email address for sales promotion and to advertise new goods and services.
We send product recommendations by email separately to the newsletter. This allows us to provide you with information about products from our website that you may be interested in based on your recent purchases of goods or services from us. We strictly observe statutory requirements when we do so. You can object to this at any time.
The legal basis for this is legal permission in accordance with point f of Article 6(1) 1 GDPR in conjunction with Section 7 Para. 3 Unfair Competition Prevention law (UWG).
1.2 Data deletion and storage duration
In principle, we delete or block your personal data whenever the reason for storage no longer applies. Storage may also take place where provided for by legal stipulations that we are subject to, such as statutory storage and documentation obligations, or under tax or commercial law. In such a case, we will delete or block your personal data after the end of the corresponding regulations.
When you visit our website, the connection data of the computer that accessed the website, the date and duration of your activity, the type of browser used and the type of operating system, the pages of our website that you visited and the website from which you accessed our internet presence are temporarily saved by our web server to maintain system security. These data are not saved beyond the duration of your visit.
More extensive personal details such as your name, address, telephone number or email address are not recorded. If you communicate with us via a contact form, we will become aware of your email address as well as all personal data that you voluntarily submit to us when you contact us. Your data is transmitted using a secure encryption procedure.
Your email address is used exclusively for the purposes of communicating specifically with you or to forward any requested information. We use the data shared by you exclusively to answer and complete your enquiry. We do not pass this information on to third parties without your explicit consent or legal authorisation. We use the personal data provided by you exclusively for the purposes of technical administration of the website and to answer your enquiries. There is no further use of your personal data.
2. Data usage / transfer
Data collected by us is used exclusively for the purposes listed in section 1 for the purposes described below. Your personal data are not transferred to third parties or used for marketing purposes. Your data are only transferred to third parties as part of mandatory legal requirements or if the transfer of data is necessary for reasons of prosecution or criminal proceedings in the event of attacks on our internet infrastructure.
3. Data security
The protection of your data is our highest priority. To protect your privacy and maintain confidentiality, we implement comprehensive measures for data protection, to which the personal data that you entrust to us during email communication is also subject. To prevent loss or abuse of your data that we have saved, we implement extensive technical and organisation measures and safety precautions that are regularly reviewed and adapted to comply with technological progress. We therefore save your data in a secure operating environment that can only be accessed internally.
4. Hyperlinks to/from external websites
This data protection statement does not apply to linked websites. Dr. Schumacher GmbH has no influence at all over the contents and organisation of other websites. Our data protection statement does not apply there and it is also expressly not for companies that have a link to our website or for websites of companies to which we have a link. Our website can include hyperlinks to websites of other providers. If you activate these hyperlinks, you will be transferred directly from our website to the website of the other provider. This will be reflected in the change in the URL. We cannot take any responsibility for the confidential handling of your data on these websites offered by third parties because we do not have any influence over whether or not these companies comply with the data protection regulations. Please read the information on these websites about how your personal data is handled by these companies.
5. Server data/log files
For technical reasons, the following data that your internet browser sends to us or to our web space provider is recorded (known as server log files):
- browser type and version
- operating system used
- the website that you visited us from (referrer URL)
- website that you visit
- date and time of your access
- your IP address
This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal data you may provide and therefore does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a certain person.
6. Use of web tracking and cookies:

If you would like to sign up to the newsletter offered on the website, we require your email address as well as information about your gender, title and surname and that you consent to the receipt of the newsletter. Storage takes place on the basis of point f of Article 6(1) GDPR. The website provider has a legitimate interest in optimising both its website and its advertising.
To guarantee that newsletters are sent with consent only, we use what is known as the double opt-in procedure. In this procedure, potential recipients are added to a distribution list. Then, through a confirmation email, users receive the option to confirm sign-up to make registration legally watertight. The address is only added actively to the distribution list once confirmation has been given.
We use this data exclusively to send the information and offers requested.
The newsletter software we use is Newsletter2Go. Your data is sent to Newsletter2Go GmbH for this purpose. Newsletter2Go is prohibited from selling your data or for using it for reasons other than sending newsletters.
