Processing of Personal Data


We, Schofer Germany – THE CHAIN COMPANY GmbH & Co. KG, take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We handle your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection directives as well as this Data Protection Declaration.

As a rule, it is possible to use our website without disclosing personal data. In so far as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected on our webpages, if possible, this is always done on a voluntary basis. Without your express consent, this data will not be passed on to third parties.

However, we wish to point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g. during communication via e-mail) may have security gaps. A seamless protection of the data being accessed by a third party is not possible.



The provider of the webpages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files which your browser automatically transmits to us. This information includes the following:

• Browser model / browser Version

• Operating system used

• Referrer URL

• Host name / IP of the accessing Computer

• Exact time of day of the server query

Registration on Our Internet Site

The affected person shall have the option of registering on the Internet site of the party responsible for the processing subject to the provision of personal data. Which personal data in this regard is transmitted to the party responsible for the processing shall be determined based upon the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the affected person shall be collected and stored exclusively for internal usage by the party responsible for the processing and for the responsible party’s own purposes.

The party responsible for the processing may affect the dissemination of the personal data to one or more contracted data processing service providers, e.g. a parcel service which shall likewise use the personal data exclusively for internal usage which is on behalf of the party responsible for the processing.

Furthermore, by registering on the Internet site of the party responsible for the processing, the IP address awarded by the internet service provider (ISP) to the affected person, the date as well as the exact time of day of the registration shall be stored. The storage of this data shall be done in view of the fact that only by so doing can the misuse of our services be prevented and, as required, this data enables the identification of criminal acts which have been committed. In this regard, the storage of this data is required in order to protect the party responsible for the processing. In principle, no dissemination of this data to third parties shall be made unless a statutory obligation exists to disclose such personal data or the disclosure thereof is for the purposes of the prosecution of a criminal act.

The registration by the affected person while voluntarily providing personal data enables the party responsible for the processing to offer the affected person content or services which, based upon the nature of the content or services, can be offered only to registered users. Registered persons shall have the option of, at any time, changing the personal data provided during the registration or having their personal data completely deleted from the database of the party responsible for the processing.

The party responsible for the processing shall issue to each affected person, at any time upon request, information regarding which personal data have been stored regarding the affected person. Furthermore, the party responsible for the processing shall correct or delete the personal data, upon the request of or notification in this regard by the affected person insofar as no statutory retention obligations oppose this. A Data Protection Officer designated by name in this Data Protection Declaration and the employees as a whole of the party responsible for the processing shall be made available to the affected person in this context as contact persons.
