Privacy Statement

Responsible authority, bases, purpose

All personal data involved will be stored and processed by us in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMA). The Controller under the Data Protection laws and the service provider under the Telemedia Act is:

Hermann Wein GmbH & Co.KG
Dornstetter Str. 29
72250 Freudenstadt-Musbach

Telephone: +49 (0) 74 43 / 245 – 0

The legal bases for processing personal data are Articles 6.1. page 1 (a)(b) and (f) GDPR and §15 TMA.
Whenever data can be entered on our website, such as when requesting a quote, subscribing to a newsletter or using a contact form, certain fields are marked as “mandatory information”. With these fields, we collect only the data required for contractual performance or to implement the desired action. Of course, you can provide us with additional information on a voluntary basis.
Your personal data will be used and stored in order to complete the contract with you or to implement the desired action (such as making a quote or answering a contact request) and for promotional purposes (please also read paragraph 2 below). As soon as the personal data is no longer required to fulfil the purpose, it will be deleted. Where statutory retention requirements exist, the data will be blocked until the expiry of the retention requirements and then deleted.

Promotional activities; e-mail newsletters in particular

You may object at any time to the use of your personal data for promotional purposes in writing, by fax, by e-mail or by telephone – in each case with effect for the future – or revoke any consent given to us in this respect.
In particular, this applies to e-mail newsletters with information on our products and services, for example. We only send you e-mail newsletters if you have consented to the use of your data for this. You can unsubscribe from an e-mail newsletter at any time with effect for the future either by pressing the link provided in each e-mail newsletter or by contacting us via the contact details provided.

Transfer of data to third parties

Your personal data will only be disclosed to those individuals involved in handling your request, processing your order and sending the newsletter. A transfer of your personal data including your home and e-mail address to third parties occurs only to the extent required for the purpose of fulfilling the contract, or you have expressly consented to the disclosure or the data protection law allows for such. However, only the required data will be transferred.

Rights of those concerned

Under certain conditions, you have the right to receive information free of charge about the data we have stored about you, to have incorrect data corrected and to require the deletion or restriction of processing and the transferability of your personal data. You may object to the use of the data at any time with effect for the future. In some cases, however, we are not permitted to completely delete user data, due to legal retention requirements. We would also like to draw your attention to your right of appeal to the Baden-Württemberg State Commissioner for the Protection of Data and Freedom of Information.

Use of Cookies

We use cookies on various pages so that you can navigate the website and use its functions, where applicable for example when accessing password-protected areas. Without these cookies, we cannot provide you with certain services requested by you (Article 6(1) page 1(b) GDPR).

Pursuant to Article 6(1) page 1(f) GDPR, we also use cookies to improve the functionality and service of the website, to compile statistics on how our website is used and to see how effective our marketing campaigns are. In addition, cookies make it possible to remember previous information about a visit (such as user name, language) in order to provide customized services to the user. Cookies are also used to design our website based on needs; for this, pseudonym usage profiles are created, if necessary, to enable analysis of your use of the website.
Pursuant to Article 6(1) page 1(a) GDPR, we will also possibly use cookies as tracking mechanisms, to the extent that you have consented to this, with further tracking and targeting functions. These cookies are mainly used to customize marketing to you and your interests, and it may also be possible to track a user on other pages. Targeting cookies also allow so-called ad networks to detect how many times a user has visited our site, and this information may be shared with other advertisers.
Cookies involve small text files stored on your computer. Most cookies used by us are deleted from your hard drive after the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and enable us to recognize your computer on your next visit (so-called persistent cookies). Of course, you also have the opportunity to view our website without cookies. Most browsers accept cookies automatically.
You can set your browser to notify you about cookie settings; this makes the use of cookies clear to you.
You can revoke your consent given to us or object to the data processing at any time. The easiest way to do this is to prevent cookie storage on your hard disk by selecting “Do not accept cookies” in the browser settings. However, in this case, you may not be able to fully use all the features of our website.


When you access our page, the access data is stored on the server. This includes data such as the browser type and version, the operating system used, the web page previously visited, the server request’s access date and time, and the client’s file request (filename and URL). We use this data for statistical evaluations, anonymized so that no attribution to the respective user occurs.

Use of Google Maps

We use Google Maps on this website to visually display geographic information and provide directions. Google Maps is a mapping service operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
In the use of Google Maps, information is collected by Google about your use of the Google Maps features, including your IP address, which it transmits to and stores on a Google server in the USA.
You have the option of deactivating the Google Maps service by deactivating JavaScript in your browser, thus preventing the data transfer to Google. We point out, however, that you cannot use the map display in this case.
