A.    General

For the sake of easier reading, no gender-specific distinction is made in our data protection declaration. The terms used apply, in the context of equal treatment, to both genders.

The meaning of the terminology used, for example ‘personal data’ or its ‘processing’ can be taken from Article 4 of the EU-General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The users’ personal data processed in the context of this online offering, includes inventory data (e.g. customers’ names and addresses), contract data (e.g. services used, name of person responsible, payment information), usage data (e.g. Websites of our online offering visited, interest in our products) and content data (e.g. input into the contact form).

‘User’ includes all categories of persons affected by the data processing. These include, for example, our business partners, customers, interested parties and other visitors to our online offering.


B.    Specific

Data protection declaration
We guarantee that we only collect, process, store and use your incoming data in connection with the processing of your request, as well as for internal purposes and providing the services that you have requested or to make content available.

Basis of data processing
We process the user’s personal data only in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations. This means that the user’s data are only processed when a statutory permission exists, namely:
-    in order to deliver our contractual performance (e.g. Processing orders) and online services or processing is required by law
-    your consent exists, and also
-    on the basis of our legitimate interests

We would like to show you where the main legal grounds are regulated in the GDPR:
-    Consent: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a. and Art. 7 GDPR
-    Processing to deliver our contractual performance and carrying out contractual measures: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR
-    Processing to fulfil our legal obligations: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c. GDPR
-    Processing to safeguard our legitimate interests: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR

Data transfer to third parties
Data is only passed to third parties within the framework of the legal provisions. We only pass user’s data to third parties when this is, for example, necessary for contractual purposes or based on our legitimate interest in the economic and the effective operation of our business operations.

In the event that we use subcontractors to provide our services, we take suitable legal precautions as well as appropriate technical and organizational measures, to provide protection for personal data in accordance with the relevant legal provisions.

Data transfers to third countries or an international organization
Third countries are countries in which the GDPR is not a directly applicable law. This basically includes all countries outside the EU, respectively, the European Economic Area.

No transfer of data to a third country or an international organization takes place without your consent or without a statutory basis.

Length of storage of your personal data
We adhere to the principles of data economy and data avoidance. This means that data you make available to us is only retained as long as it is needed to fulfil the previously named purposes or as laid down by the manifold storage periods provided for by the legislator. If the relevant purpose no longer exists, respectively after expiry of the appropriate period, your data is routinely blocked, respectively erased, in accordance with the statutory provisions

We have developed a company-internal concept to guarantee this procedure.

Making contact with EK-Pack Folien GmbH
If you make contact with us by email, you consent to electronic communication. Personal data will be collected in the context of contacting us. Which data is collected in the case of a contact form, can be seen on the respective contact form. The statements which you make will be stored exclusively for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions.

We would like to tell you the legal grounds:
-    Processing to deliver our contractual performance and carrying out contractual measures: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR
-    Processing to safeguard our legitimate interests: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR

We use software to maintain our customer data (CRM system) or comparable software on the basis of our legitimate interests (processing users’ enquiries efficiently and quickly). No data is thereby transferred to third parties

We would like to advise you that emails can be read or changed, unnoticed and without authorization, during transmission. We would also like to bring to your attention that we use software to filter unwanted emails (spam filter). Emails can be rejected by the spam filter if they are wrongly identified as spam due to the presence of certain characteristics.

What rights do you have?
a)    Right to information
You have the right to obtain information about your stored data without charge. Upon request, we will tell you in writing, in accordance with current law, what personal data about you we have stored. This also includes the origin and recipient of your data as well as the purpose of the data processing.

b)    Right to rectification
You have the right to have your data which is stored by us, corrected, if it is incorrect. You can demand a limitation to the processing of your personal data, e.g. if the accuracy of your personal data is contested.

c)    Right to blocking
Furthermore, you can have your data blocked. So that a blocking of your data can be taken into account at any time, the data must be held in a lock file for control purposes.

d)    Right to erasure
You can also demand the erasure of your personal data, so long as no legal storage obligation exists. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data on request. If appropriate statutory requirements are present, we will also erase your personal data without a request from yourself.

e)    Right to data transferability
You are entitled to demand that the personal data transferred to us is made available in a format which enables it to be transferred to another location

f)    Right to complain to a supervisory authority

You have the option to object at any time to the use of your data for internal purposes with future effect. For this, it is sufficient to send an appropriate email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. However, such an objection does not affect the legality of processing procedures which we have already carried out. This does not affect data processing in respect of other legal bases, for example, such as contract initiation (see above).

Protection of your personal data
We take state of the art contractual, organizational and technical security measures to ensure compliance with the provisions of the data protection laws and therefore, to protect the data which we process against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons.

Thereby your personal data is protected in the context of the following points (extract):
a)    Ensuring the confidentiality of your personal data
To ensure the confidentiality of the personal data which we store, we have taken various measures to control access.

b)    Ensure the integrity of your personal data
To ensure the integrity of the personal data which we store, we have taken various measures to control transfer and input.

c)    Ensure availability of your personal data
To ensure the availability of the personal data which we store, we have taken various measures to control orders and availability.

The security measures employed are continually improved in accordance with technical development. Despite these precautions, because of the insecure nature of the internet, we are unable to guarantee the security of your data transfers to our online offering. For this reason, all data transfers from you to our online offering are made at your own risk.
