ESZ Wilfried Becker GmbH (hereinafter referred to as "ESZ" or "we") attaches the utmost importance to compliance with data protection regulations. In this data protection declaration, we describe which of your personal data is collected by ESZ during your visit to our ESZ website and when you use our contact form, how we use this data and what rights you have with regard to this data.
If you have any questions about data protection, please contact the data protection officer by e-mail at:

ESZ Wilfried Becker GmbH
2 Contact person responsible entity
The responsible entity for the collection and processing of your personal data is the ESZ Wilfried Becker GmbH, Weilerhöfe 1, D-41564 Kaarst-Büttgen.
3 Use of our ESZ website
You can visit our ESZ website at any time without providing any personal data. If individual functions and services offered via our ESCC website require the provision, storage and use of personal data, you will be notified and informed of this separately in advance.
Insofar as we evaluate your usage behavior on our ESCC website without your express consent, we use your data exclusively in anonymized or pseudonymized form. This data includes, for example, the date and time you accessed our ESZ website, your browser type, browser settings and operating system, the last page you visited, the amount of data transferred and your IP address. Your internet service provider can trace which IP address was assigned to you at which time. Since the complete IP address thus allows at least an indirect personal reference, we only record your IP address in abbreviated (anonymized) form, so that we cannot make a personal reference.
- 4 Use of the contact form and e-mail contact
Our website contains the option to easily contact ESZ by mail. If you use this function, the contact data entered in the input mask (name, email address and optionally the telephone number) will be transmitted to us and stored. In addition, depending on the type of contact, further data may be collected. At the time of sending the message, the following data is also stored:
- The IP address of the user
- Registration date and time
We do not pass on any data to third parties in this context. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.
We only process your personal data from the input screen to process the contact. If you contact us by e-mail, this also includes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data.
The other personal data processed during the sending process is used to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
The legal basis for the processing of the data is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an email is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. If the e-mail contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR.
5 General legal bases for the processing of personal data
Unless precise legal bases are specified in this declaration, the following applies to the legal basis for the processing of personal data by EZW:
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, e.g. in the context of establishing contact in accordance with section 4, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an email is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. If the e-mail contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR. When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
- 6 Data deletion and storage period
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Data may also be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or erased if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.
Your data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of your personal data from contact forms and data sent by email, this is the case when the respective conversation with you has ended. The conversation has ended when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.
The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of 90 days at the latest.
- 7 Sharing your data with third parties
As part of the provision of our services, your data may also be transferred to third parties that we have involved in order processing, e.g. IT service providers. When passing on personal information to these third parties, we limit ourselves to the information that is necessary for the provision of the respective service and ensure that this transfer takes place in compliance with the necessary data security measures. ESZ will only disclose your personal data to third parties who have undertaken to protect your privacy and to process your data in accordance with the applicable laws.
In addition, ESZ may be compelled by a court or governmental order to disclose your data and related information. We also reserve the right to use your information to assert or defend against legal claims. In the event of a takeover or merger with another company, it may be necessary to disclose or transfer your data to actual or potential buyers. In this case, ESZ will endeavor to ensure the highest possible level of data protection and comply with legal requirements.
For the fulfillment of contractual and pre-contractual obligations (Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b GDPR).
8 Order data processing / transfer of data to service providers
We work together with service providers who process certain data on our behalf. This is done exclusively in accordance with the applicable data protection law. In particular, we have concluded agreements with our service providers on data processing on our behalf that meet the requirements of confidentiality (access control, access control, access control, separation control, pseudonymization), integrity (transfer control, input control) and availability and resilience (availability control, rapid recoverability). Through careful selection and regular monitoring, we ensure that our service providers take all organizational and technical measures necessary to protect your data.
Insofar as this is necessary for the delivery of the products ordered in the ESZ portal, we will pass on your personal data to the shipping company commissioned by us with the delivery. The shipping company will only use your personal data to process the delivery

We use the following third-party cookies to analyze surfing behavior and for marketing purposes. In this section, we would like to provide you with an overview of which data we process in this context and to which third-party provider the data is transmitted:
- Analyse tool Matomo

- 12.2 Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics for this website, a web analysis service from Google for statistical recording.
We also use the technical extension "Google Signals", which enables cross-device tracking. This makes it possible to assign an individual website visitor to different end devices. However, this only happens if the visitor has logged in to a Google service when visiting a website and at the same time has activated the "personalized advertising" option in their Google account settings. But even then, no personal data or user profiles are accessible to us; they remain anonymous to us.
- 12.3 Google Maps
We integrate the maps of the "Google Maps" service from Google. The processed data may include, in particular, IP addresses and location data of users that are not collected without their consent (usually as part of the settings of their mobile devices).
Weitere Informationen zu diesem Dienst finden Sie unter https://policies.google.com/privacy. You can object to the use of your data by filling out a form available under http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de install available plugin.

13 Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries
Among other things, we use tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that a level of data protection comparable to that in the EU cannot be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that
US-Behörden Ihre auf US-Servern befindlichen Daten zu Überwachungszwecken verarbeiten, auswerten und dauerhaft speichern. Wir haben auf diese Verarbeitungstätigkeiten keinen Einfluss.
We reserve the right to amend these data protection provisions at any time with effect for the future. A current version is always available on the website. Please visit the website regularly and inform yourself about the applicable data protection provisions.
