Thank you for your interest in our online presence. The protection of your personal data and the protection of your privacy are very important to us. At this point, we would therefore like to inform you about the processing of your personal data when visiting our website. Of course, we comply with the legal provisions of the European Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the Telecommunications Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG) and other data protection regulations.
Please note the explanations/definitions of terms at the end of the text
You can visit our website anonymously at any time. We respect the freedom of the individual to decide when and for what purpose he or she wishes to provide certain personal information. We do not use any technologies to identify you or create personal profiles!
We collect personal data only to a limited extent and where necessary for the following:
To ensure that you are fully familiar with the processing of personal data on our websites, we have compiled this clear and comprehensive information for you. We would like to assure you that we will make every necessary technical and organisational effort to protect your data.
Responsible for the processing of personal data is:
Mainzer Str. 99

As Data Protection Officer we have appointed:

Reporting office in the event or suspicion of data protection incidents:
When you access our websites, we automatically process data of a general nature. This data, which may be stored (where applicable) in “server log files”, includes:
*If necessary, you can disable this data by making the appropriate settings in your system.
This data is used in accordance with Article 6 (1)(b) GDPR to provide you with the websites and to display them correctly; it is accessed each time you use the internet.
Furthermore, the data is temporarily stored in accordance with Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR for the purpose of fraud prevention and the investigation of attacks on our website if our system detects such attacks. If there is no such suspicious case, the respective IP address of the page accesses is only stored permanently in anonymized form.
The remaining (non-personal) data may be processed further for statistical purposes.
As a visitor to our website, you are a data subject as defined by the General Data Protection Regulation.
“Cookies” are small information packages that are stored on your computer by a domain (in this instance: schottel.de) and can only be processed again by this domain. Our cookies cannot contain or spread malicious code or start programs.
Our aim is to determine if you are able to find your way around our websites easily by identifying the accesses that belong to a session. By using cookies, we can also determine when your browser last visited our site. This allows us to establish if it is a repeat visit (repeat visitors typically have a different and usually very specific interest in certain content). We also want to assess if you find the content of our web pages sufficiently interesting and if and where we could improve our efforts in this respect.
We do not wish to, will not and cannot identify you personally and would therefore be grateful if you would allow us to track repeat visits by cookie.
We do not tolerate cookies from third-party domains and use our own cookies extremely sparingly. We never store any personal data in them and use them only for the following purposes:
|_pk_testcookie.#.####||To test if the browser allows cookies||few seconds||*|
|_pk_id.#.####||To recognize a repeat visit||13 months||*|
|_pk_ses.#.####||To identify which page requests belong to the same session||30 minutes||*|
|omCookieConsent||Saves consent when redirecting to content from external sources.||1 year|
* If your browser is configured to tell our server that you do not want tracking ('Do-not-track'), these cookies will not be generated.
The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is never passed onto third parties. You can decide at any time if and which cookies are allowed or not allowed on your computer. You can also delete individual or all cookies on your computer at any time. To do this, use the settings in your web browser.
In order to optimize our websites and adapt them to changing habits and technical requirements, we use statistical tools. In doing so, we measure, for example, which elements are visited by users, whether the information they are looking for is easy to find, and so on. This information only becomes interpretable and meaningful at all when a larger group of users is considered. For this purpose, the collected data is aggregated, i.e. combined into larger units.
SCHOTTEL does not profile visitors or use retargeting technologies and does not measure “customer journeys” by means of other sites. Therefore we are neither interested in the behaviour of an individual nor in the person behind it.
This enables us to adapt the design of web pages or optimize content if, for example, we find that a relevant proportion of visitors are using new technologies or finding existing information difficult or impossible to find.
We take structural measures (separation of databases and responsibilities) to ensure that statistical data cannot contain or be linked to personal data at any time.
If your browser is configured to instruct our server that you do not wish to be tracked (“do not track”), Matomo will not record your visit to our site (we never store personal data anyway).
We observe the principle of data use for specific purposes and process your personal data only for those purposes for which you have provided the data. Your personal data will not be passed onto third parties without your express consent, unless this is necessary for the provision of the service or the execution of the contract. Furthermore, the transfer of data to state institutions and authorities entitled to receive information is only carried out within the scope of the legal obligation to provide information or if we are obliged to provide information by court order.
We also take our in-house data protection very seriously. We have obligated our employees and the service companies we commission to maintain secrecy and to comply with the provisions of data protection law.
There is no deliberate transfer of personal data to third countries or to international organizations, nor is there any plan to do so. However, when a website is accessed, it cannot be guaranteed that the data will remain within the EU/EEA. Due to the way the internet works, it may be technically possible that a request on the way from you to us or a reply on the way back may be routed via a server in a non-secure third country. This cannot be prevented either. However, since we encrypt the data traffic between your browser and our server (see section 8 below), there is no particular risk in this respect.
In general, it is not necessary for you to provide personal data to use our website. However, in order for us to actually provide our services, we may need your personal data. This applies both to the sending of any information or ordered goods and to replies to individual requests.
If you commission us to provide a service or to send you goods, we shall only process your personal data in accordance with Article 6(1)(b) GDPR to the extent necessary to provide the service or implement the contract. For this purpose, it may be necessary to pass on your personal data to companies that we use to provide the service or implement the contract, such as transport companies or other service providers. If we wish to process your personal data for certain actions or services with your consent (in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) GDPR), we will ask you for your express consent at the appropriate point on our website.
Your personal data will be encrypted (bug-proof) on all pages with input fields by means of TLS/HTTPS for transmission over the internet (identifiable by the lock symbol in the URL line of the browser). We use technical and organizational measures to secure our website and other systems against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorized persons.
You can contact us in a number of ways. One of these ways is to use one of our contact forms. To process your respective request, the minimum information we require is your first and last name and an e-mail address. You can also voluntarily provide additional information that will help us to respond to your request more effectively or pre-empt any queries. Your data will be transmitted encrypted.
You may, of course, also send us an e-mail to any of the addresses published on the website. In this case, the personal data transmitted by e-mail will be stored.
If your request relates to a service offered by us, we will process your data on the basis of Article 6(1)(b) GDPR. All other requests will only be processed on the basis of your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR).
During e-mail correspondence, it cannot be guaranteed that the data will remain within the EU/EEA. Due to the way the internet works, it may be technically possible that an e-mail on the way from us to you and vice versa may be routed via a server in a non-secure third country. Opt for the postal service if you want to send information confidentially, or encrypt the information/files separately (e.g. In an encrypted ZIP file) and send the key via another channel (e.g. SMS).
Your processed personal data will only be stored for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the intended purpose. Once this purpose has been fulfilled, the data will be deleted, unless mandatory retention periods prevent this. In this case, the data will be limited in its processing so that it can only be used for the purpose that requires its retention (e.g. tax audit). Once these retention periods have expired, this data will also be deleted.
If we have access to the relevant information, a customer or prospective customer profile may be created in order to provide you with the best possible advice.
For this purpose, we use the following information in particular:
SCHOTTEL does not use automated decision-making including profiling* with your personal data. However, we use so-called spam or junk filters in electronic communication to protect our systems. This involves the use of sender, time, content, character set and origin, among other things, to automatically sort out unwanted e-mails. If you feel that your e-mails have not arrived or are being rejected, please contact us via another communication channel (telephone, fax or letter).
* Merging individual data to gain insights into key aspects of personality.
On this website, we offer maps that use freely accessible sources (open source). The necessary software is on our own server. It retrieves map data that is stored on an external server. When setting up the software, we carefully checked that the data is retrieved from a server located within the EU (in Germany). However, we cannot guarantee this, even though we check this regularly.
The map data is only retrieved when you actively click on the preview image indicating you would like to use the map service. When retrieving data from an external server, your IP address is always transmitted to this server as otherwise the map data could not be sent to your device. In the process, the external server also learns that you have visited our site. Since the open source used by us is neither financed by advertising nor located outside the EU (e.g. as is the case with Google Maps), we believe that there is no risk of data misuse.

For better performance, we use the provider Vimeo for the presentation of our videos so that they can be accessed from all parts of the world without any time lag. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo.com, Inc. with head office in New York (USA).
Note: The following information would be necessary to a similar extent if we used YouTube instead of Vimeo.
On some of our web pages we use software (plugins) from the provider Vimeo. If you call up the pages of our website that use such a plugin, no connection to the Vimeo servers is initially established – only a preview image is displayed. It is only by actively clicking actively the "Play Video" button in this preview image (consent), Vimeo reloads video data from the nearest server of a service provider (Akamai). This consent applies for all Vimeo videos embedded on our website. In the process, data is transferred to the Vimeo server thereby revealing which of our websites you have visited. The consent is only valid for the current browser session, i.e. if you want to revoke the consent, please close your browser.
If you are logged in as a Vimeo member at the time, Vimeo may assign this information to your personal user account. This information may also be assigned to your user account when you use the plugin, such as by clicking the start, stop, fast forward or rewind buttons of a video. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account and deleting the relevant Vimeo cookies before activating the video. Regardless of this type of assignment to your Vimeo user account, your personal data will nevertheless be transferred to Vimeo – and therefore to a third country – even if you have no Vimeo user account.
A transfer to third countries is only permitted under the conditions of Chapter V of the GDPR. Vimeo.com, Inc. was certified in accordance with the EU-US Privacy Shield. The successor agreement EU-US Data Privacy Framework entered into force on 10/07/2023, but Vimeo.com, Inc. is currently not certified. Therefore, we base the transfer of personal data (here: your IP address, your Vimeo usage behavior) to basically reliable recipients on your consent pursuant to Article 49 (1) a) of the GDPR, which you expressly grant by clicking the "Play video" button in view of the aforementioned risks and dangers.
Further information (in English) regarding data processing and data protection by Vimeo can be found at https://vimeo.com/privacy.
