Responsible in the sense of the basic data protection regulation (see below) is
Horstmann+Sander GmbH & CoKG
As the person responsible for this website, we take the protection of your data very seriously. On the basis of the basic EU data protection regulation ([EU] 2016/679; "DSGVO") effective since 25 May 2018, we inform you about the scope, the collection, the duration, the use, storage, processing and, if necessary, passing on of the personal data transmitted to us as well as about the technical and organisational measures to protect the data transmitted to us and our duties to provide information.
We collect and use personal data only to the extent that this is actually necessary for the provision of our services on our Internet pages.
The protection of privacy is of the utmost importance. We only pass on data to third parties without your consent if
- we have the right to involve other companies as service providers (com&on GmbH, Leisewitzstr. 47, 30175 Hannover, Germany) in providing technical support for our services and the disclosure of data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f DSGVO is required; and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data,
- in the event that a legal obligation exists for the transfer pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO, and
- you have given your express consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO
- this is legally permissible and is necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO.
Even if data is passed on to service providers, we assure you that your data will be treated confidentially in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations and under no circumstances will data be sold to third parties or passed on in any other way for commercial purposes.
We collect data about every access to the server on which this service is located (log files) when you visit our website. These log files contain the IP address and the requesting provider, the URL of the retrieved website, file, date and time of the retrieval, transferred data volume, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and its version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page). The IP address is automatically anonymized and used only for geographic classification at local level (city, county or district).
This data is technically necessary for the service we offer in order to ensure the stability and security of the display of our Internet pages (websites) and a smooth connection setup. Since we can thus offer protection against misuse, we have a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO in data processing, the security of which we guarantee with protective measures based on the state of the art.
We continue to use this information to measure website activity, compile statistics and improve the services and information provided by the websites.
Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you personally.
Since the collection of the data as described is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website or there is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, you have no right of objection in this respect.
Your data will be passed on to our hosting service providers.
Other personal data of the user will only be used to process an inquiry within the scope of prior express consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
Your rights - Rights of the person concerned
According to the DSGVO mentioned above, you as the so-called data subject have the following rights in connection with the processing of any personal data collected by us
- Information rights under Articles 13 and 14 EU DSGVO
- Right to information under Article 15 EU DSGVO
- Right to correction under Article 16 EU DSGVO
- Right to cancellation under Article 17 EU DSGVO
- Right to limitation of processing under Article 18 EU DSGVO
- Data transferability according to Article 20 EU DSGVO

data protection officer
If you have any questions concerning data protection, you can contact our data protection officer by e-mail at the following address:
Without prejudice to any other legal remedy, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority (e.g. the State Data Protection Commissioner or the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information BfDI -), in particular in the Member State of residence or the place of suspected infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to the DSGVO.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 DSGVO.
Stored data protection
We as a company and responsible person as well as com&on GmbH use technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data provided to us from manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. The security measures are continuously improved and adapted in accordance with the state of the art.
Unencrypted data may be viewed by third parties. Therefore, it is pointed out that no secure transmission is guaranteed with regard to data transmission via the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail). Sensitive data should therefore either not be transmitted at all or only via a secure connection (SSL). If you call up pages and files and are asked to enter data about yourself, we would like to point out that this data transfer via the Internet may be unsecured and the data may therefore be noticed or falsified by unauthorised persons.
Tracking and Cookies
The tracking measures we use are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. These measures in turn serve to ensure the design and continuous optimisation of our website as well as the statistical recording and evaluation of the use of our website in order to optimise our offer for you. These interests are to be regarded as legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.
The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.
The following tracking tools are used here:
Matomo (formerly Piwik)
We use the open source web analysis service Matomo (also known as Piwik) for web analysis. For more information see https://matomo.org.
Cookies are used for this (see below). The information on website usage generated by this is transmitted to our servers and summarized in pseudonymous user profiles. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website and to enable a demand-oriented design of our website. The information is not passed on to third parties. Under no circumstances will the IP address be associated with other data relating to the user. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking). Your current visit to this website is recorded by Matomo Webanalyse. Please click here:
In Cookie-Dateien werden Informationen abgelegt, die sich jeweils im Zusammenhang mit dem spezifisch eingesetzten Endgerät ergeben. Wir erhalten hierüber jedoch keinerlei Kenntnis von Ihrer Identität.
In addition, we also use temporary cookies that are stored on your end device for a specified period of time to optimize user-friendliness. If you visit our site again to use our services, it will automatically recognize that you have already been with us and what entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.
Cookies enable us to determine the success of our digital products, as we use them to analyze general usage patterns in order to further develop our site and offers according to your usage habits and to statistically record the use of our websites and evaluate them for the purpose of optimizing our offering. These cookies enable us to automatically recognize when you return to our site that you have already been with us. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period of time.
The data processed by cookies is required for the aforementioned purposes in order to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a message always appears before a new cookie is created. However, the complete deactivation of cookies can lead to the fact that you cannot use all functions of our websites.
Social Media Plug-ins
On our website we use social plug-ins from the social networks Facebook and Instagram on the basis of art. 6 par. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
to make our law firm better known. The underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the DSGVO. Responsibility for data protection-compliant operation must be guaranteed by the respective provider. The integration of these plug-ins by us takes place in the way of the so-called two-click method around visitors of our web page in the best possible way to protect.
Our website uses social media plugins from Facebook (Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland) to personalise their usage. For this purpose we use the "LIKE" or "SHARE"-button. This is an offer from Facebook.
When you visit a page of our website that includes a plugin of this type, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website.
By including the plugins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you don't have a Facebook account or are not currently logged on to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly associate your visit to our website with your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the "LIKE" or "SHARE" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and saved there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.
Facebook can use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and demand-oriented design of Facebook pages. To this end, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your usage of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook.
If you do not wish Facebook to match the information collected through our website with your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the data protection information (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/) of Facebook.
Our website also uses so-called Social Plugins ("Plugins") from Instagram, which is operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Instagram").
The plug-ins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an "Instagram camera".
When you visit a page of our website that includes such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Instagram's servers. Instagram transfers the content of the plugin directly to your browser and integrates it into the page. This integration informs Instagram that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not currently logged in to Instagram.
This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to an Instagram server in the USA and is saved there. If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can immediately associate your visit to our website with your Instagram account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the "Instagram" button, this information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there.
The information is also published on your Instagram account and displayed to your contacts.
If you don't wish Instagram to associate the information collected through our website directly with your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website.
Google AdWords and Remarketing with Adwords
You will also find further and more detailed information on this in the notes on website statistics and in Google's data protection regulations. The information is only used for statistical analyses for ad optimization. For example, we can use it to find out which search terms were clicked on particularly often and which ads lead, for example, to the acceptance of offers from our company. However, personal identification is not possible and not intended for us.
You can disable this service by disabling cookies through your browser settings, deselecting individual types of ads in Google's ad settings, disabling interest-based ads on Google, or disabling cookies from advertisers using the Network Advertising Initiative's disabling tool. We and Google then only get the statistical information about how many users have visited a page and when. The latter can only be prevented by appropriate browser extensions.
If you have any questions or other concerns, we offer you the opportunity to contact us using a form provided on the website. A valid e-mail address is required so that we know who sent the request and can respond to it. Further information can be provided voluntarily.
Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO on the basis of your voluntary consent, which you expressly give us by activating a check mark before passing on the data via the contact form.
You can revoke your consent at any time by e-mail to email@example.com or in writing to the Horstmann+Sander GmbH & CoKG, keyword data protection, address (please enter your e-mail address and the name under which you are registered).
The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be automatically deleted after your request has been processed.
We use the TLS (Transport Layer Security) procedure - also known in the previous version as SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure - in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser when visiting our website. Whether a single page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form is indicated by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.
We or our service provider, com&on GmbH, use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
Data transmitted unencrypted over the Internet may be viewed by third parties. We therefore point out that no secure transmission of data over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) is guaranteed. Personal data that allow a conclusion to an individual person should therefore either not be transmitted at all or only via a secure connection (TLS - see above). If you are requested to enter data about yourself when accessing pages and files, this data transfer via the Internet may be unsecured and the data may therefore be noted or falsified by unauthorised persons.
