Use of your data

We store and process personal data in accordance with the following legal basis

  • Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO (General Data Protection Regulation): for processing of personal data with the consent of the person concerned.
  • Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO: for the necessary processing of personal data for the fulfilment of a contract with the person concerned and for the execution of corresponding contractual obligations.
  • Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c DS-GVO: for the necessary processing of personal data for the fulfilment of a legal duty to which we are subject according to applicable EU law or applicable law in a country to which the DSGVO applies.
  • Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO: for the necessary processing of personal data to protect the legitimate interests of us or of third parties where these are not outweighed by the basic rights and freedoms of the person concerned. Legitimate interests are in particular our commercial interests, ability to provide our website, data security, enforcement of our own legal claims and adherence to other legal stipulations.


We process data which we keep for processing our business relationship with you. We get the data from you directly at the placement of the order or order processing. The legal basis for storage and processing of these data is your consent according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO. Provision of personal data is also required for closure of the contract and contract development. If the data is not provided, it is not possible to execute the contract (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO). We store and process data of persons with representative rights, employees and other contact partners on the basis of the legitimate interest (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b and lit. f DS-GVO) of efficient communication with the contract partner.

Specifically, we process the following for the delivery of our services:

  • Master data for carrying out and providing our services. (e.g., name and address, e-mail address, telephone number)
  • Data in connection with processing payments
  • Correspondence (e.g. letters or e-mail exchanges with you, persons with representative rights, employees and other contact partners)
  • Advertising and sales data (e.g., about new potentially interesting offers)

Your data is stored for the duration of the execution of contract; after completion of the contractual relationship, we are obliged to retain tax-relevant documents for 10 years from the end of year and calendar year. Then the data is deleted.


If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on our website, we will require from you an e-mail address and information which allow us to check that you are the owner of the e-mail address given and that you have agreed to receipt of the newsletter.

Your consent is the legal basis for processing personal data according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO. No other data will be captured. This data will only be used for sending the requested information and we will not pass it on to third parties.

You are not obliged to give the information. However, without provision of this information, we will not be able to send you a newsletter. 

You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, your e-mail address and the use of it for sending newsletters at any time, for example, by using the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. Your data is stored for as long as you are receiving the newsletter. Then it will be deleted.


Delignit AG processes personal data to enable shareholders to enable shareholders to participate in General Meetings and the exercise of their rights in the context of the General Meeting. The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 part 1 lit. c DS-GVO.

Only such personal data as is necessary for the execution of commissioned services is collected. The service providers process this data exclusively on the direction of the contract awarder.

Personal data are made available to shareholders and shareholders’ representatives in the context of the legal stipulations in connection with General Meeting via the list of participants. Personal data is stored and then deleted according to legal duties.


Data is only stored and processed in connection with your access to this internet offer for the duration of your communication exchange (e.g. IP address, date, time, and pages visited) We may also access other data (like browser type/version, operating system) in order to be able to offer you an optimised version of our website. The legal basis for the processing of this data is the circumstance that this is necessary for the provision of our website for your request and so serves our legitimate interest in the provision of information (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO and § 15 TMG). Data will only be stored beyond the duration of the visit as given below:


We will collect and store data automatically in the so-called Server-log files which your browser automatically sends to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • IP address or hostname of the computer accessing in an abbreviated, anonymised form
  • Time of the server request

This data cannot be associated with individuals. This data is not merged with other data sources.

However, we reserve the right to store the IP addresses or hostnames in full form if there is concrete indication of illegal attacks on our website If the data collected are not needed for defence against such attacks or prosecution, they are anonymised at the latest after seven (7) days The legal basis for the processing is the protection of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. h DS-GVO) for maintaining the functionality and security of the website or for prosecution.

It is generally also possible to use our website without giving personal data. Where personal data is collected on our pages (for example, name, address or e-mail addresses), this is always on a voluntary basis as far as possible and only with your consent. Without your express agreement, this data will not be passed to third parties.

We remind you that data exchange in data transfer via the internet (e.g., in e-mail communication) can show security breaches. It is not possible to completely prevent access to data.

You can recognise an encrypted connection by the address line of the browser changing from “http://” to “https://” and the padlock symbol in your browser.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details including the contact details given by you there will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case we need to ask follow-up questions. This data will not be passed on without your consent.

Processing of the data given in via the contact form is thus only done with your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO). You can revoke this agreement at any time. A simple e-mail to us is sufficient for this. The legality of data processing up to the revocation is not affected by the revocation.

The data given by you in the contact form is retained by us until you request us to delete it, you revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the storage of the data no longer exists (e.g., after processing of your enquiry has been completed). Obligatory legal stipulations – especially retention periods- remain unaffected.
