  1. General notes

Scope of the data protection statement

This data protection statement applies to the visit and use of the website

Person in charge

We, Heusch GmbH & Co. KG, are in charge within the meaning of EU GDPR – i.e. the legal entity that decides on the purpose and means of processing personal data. Our contact details are: Kellershausstrasse 11-15, 52078 Aachen, Germany, tel.: +49 241 168950, fax: +49 241 16895255, email:

The contact person for all matters of data protection in our house is the management.

Further processing for another purpose

The purposes for which we process your personal data are described in Section B. If we intend any further processing of your personal data for another purpose, i.e. not that for which the personal data was originally collected, we will inform you again.

Obligation to provide/necessity of personal data for making contact

The provision of the personal data is not prescribed by law. However, the data required for processing an inquiry via a contact form, such as the surname, first name and email address, must be stated. Without them, we will not be in a position to process your inquiry.

  1. Processing of your personal data
  2. Information you provide us with

This is the data that we receive from you directly via our contact form, in particular the surname, first name, email address.

This data cannot be viewed by third parties. We will not pass on this data to third parties in any event.

We delete the data once we have processed your inquiry.

The legal basis for this processing of personal data is Article 6 I b) EU GDPR.


  1. Information that we receive on the basis of your use of our website

While you use or visit our website, data is automatically collected from you by means of tracking. Here, you learn how the tracking takes place and why we use tracking (guarantee of security, provision of our service).

Execution of the tracking

With cookies and similar tracking technologies, we collect data for the provision of our services and analysis of user behavior as well as for statistical purposes. Within the framework of the tracking, access data (e.g. date and time of the visit, referrer, IP address, cookie ID, location data, product and version information of the browser used or the app used, device identification or device data) as well as interaction data (e.g. pages viewed or search queries carried out) is processed. To identify you as a user during your visit to our website, we use so-called session cookies. These session cookies are automatically deleted after the end of the relevant session. These cookies are required to use our website.

You can prevent the storing of cookies via your browser settings.

Purpose of tracking

Security guarantee

The tracking is carried out, among other things, to ensure and safeguard the legitimate interests of user protection and user data security, as well as our website. To this end, we store the data collected for up to 90 days in full. Only few of our employees with corresponding access rights have access to this data. The legal basis for this processing of personal data is Article 6 I f) EU GDPR.

Provision of our service

The tracking and analysis of the user relationship helps us to verify and optimize the effectiveness of our service as well as rectify faults. We try to adjust our products and services to the needs of the users at all times.

Tracking tools of third-party providers used

We do not use any tracking tools of third parties.


  1. Passing on of your data to third parties

We do not pass on your personal data to third parties as a rule, unless we are obligated to do so by law or under a court or official order. Where we collaborate with external service providers within the framework of data processing (e.g. when analyzing usage behavior), this takes place as a rule on the basis of so-called contract processing, during which we continue to be responsible for data processing. We verify each of these service providers in advance for the measures required by data protection and data security and thereby ensure the legally prescribed contractual regulations on the protection of the personal data.


  1. Your rights

Among other things, you are entitled to the statutory claims to information, correction, deletion, restriction of and objection to processing as well as a right to data portability. Furthermore, you may revoke any consent given to processing at any time and complain to a supervisory authority.

Right of objection

You have the right to file an objection against the processing of personal data relating to you at any time, which is carried out under Article 6(1)(f) EU GDPR. Please use our contact form for your objection or send us an email.

Right of information

You have the right to demand confirmation from us about whether we process personal data relating to you. If this is the case, you have the right to information about this personal data.

Right of correction

You have the right to immediately demand from us the correction of incorrect personal data relating to you. Taking into account the purposes of processing, you have the right to also demand the completion of incomplete personal data – also by means of a supplemental declaration.

Right to deletion

You have the right to demand that we delete personal data relating to you without delay if one of the following reasons applies: The personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed. You withdraw your consent on which the processing under Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) EU GDPR was based and there is no other legal basis for the processing. In accordance with Article 21(1) EU GDPR you object to the processing and there are no overarching legitimate reasons for the processing or you object to the processing under Article 21(1) EU GDPR. The personal data was unlawfully processed. The deletion of the personal data is required for a legal obligation under European Union law or the law of member states, to which we are subject. The personal data was collected in relation to services offered directly to one child of the information society under Article 8(1) EU GDPR. After your request, we are obligated to immediately delete the corresponding data. The lawfulness of the processing carried out under the approval until the revocation remains unaffected.

Right to restriction of processing

You are authorized to demand a restriction to the processing of your personal data if the correctness of the personal data is contested by you for the duration that enables the person in charge to verify the correctness of the personal data. If the processing is unlawful and you reject the deletion of the personal data and instead demand the restriction of the use of the personal data from us, we will comply with the request. The restriction of the processing is also carried out if we no longer need your personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you require it for the asserting, exercising or defending of your own legal claims, or you have filed an objection to the processing in accordance with Article 21(1) EU GDPR as long as it is not clear whether the legitimate grounds of the person in charge outweigh in relation to your reasons. You will be informed by us before the restriction is removed.

Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data relating to you, which you provided us with, in a structured, standard and machine-readable format, and have the right to send this data to another person in charge without obstruction by us, who have been provided with the personal data. The requirement is that a) the processing is based on an approval under Article 6(1)(a) EU GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) EU GDPR or an agreement under Article 6(1)(b) EU GDPR and b) the processing takes place using an automatic procedure. When exercising the right to data portability, you have the right to demand that the personal data is sent directly from us to another responsible office, insofar as this is technically possible.

Right of revocation in case of consent

If the processing is based on your approval, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time. The lawfulness of the processing carried out under the approval until the revocation is thereby not affected.

Right to complain

You have the right to complain to a supervisory authority in charge for our company. The supervisory authority responsible for our company is: Landesbeauftragte für Datenschutz und Informationsfreiheit Nordrhein-Westfalen (State Officer for Data Protection and Information Freedom North Rhine-Westphalia), Kavalleriestr. 2-4, 40213 Düsseldorf, tel: 0211/38424-0, fax: 0211/38424-10, email:
