Data protection

Carl Engelkemper Münster is delighted that you have visited our website and would like to thank you for your interest in our company, products and services. Protecting your privacy and your personal data is important to us. In order to give you the highest possible level of transparency and security, our Privacy Policy gives you information on the type, scope and purpose of the collection, use and processing of the information and data we collect.


Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy gives you, the user of our website, all the information you need about how, in what scope and for what purpose we or third-party providers collect and use your data. Collection and use of your data is strictly in line with provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG). We are especially committed to the confidentiality of your personal data and therefore work strictly within the limits set by statutory provisions. This personal data is collected on a voluntary basis where possible. We only disclose this data to third parties with your explicit consent. We ensure a high level of security for particularly confidential data, such as in payment transactions or with regard to your enquiries to us. However, we would like to take the opportunity to draw attention to the general dangers of internet use, which we cannot influence. In email traffic in particular, if you do not take any further precautions, your data is not secure and could be collected by third parties.


1. External links

Our website contains links to third-party websites, such as Facebook and YouTube. These are usually clearly marked with the website address or the company or product logo. Carl Engelkemper Münster has no influence over the content and design of these websites from third-party providers and therefore cannot extend the guarantees of this Privacy Policy to such sites.


2. Communication and usage-related data

You can visit the Carl Engelkemper Münster website without us finding out who you are. Apart from your IP address, we only record the time of access, the quantity of data transmitted, the pages of our website you visit, the page from which you accessed our website, and the browser you use (log files) for statistical and internal, system-related purposes. Should this information potentially enable personal data to be inferred, it is of course subject to statutory data protection regulations. The data is not personalised and is deleted once statistical analysis is complete.


3. Collection of personal data

If you wish to use some of the services on our website, especially the newsletter and contact form, we need to collect some personal data on you. Personal data is details about personal and factual circumstances relating to your person, such as your name, address or email address. We only collect such data if you provide it to us voluntarily, thus showing us that you agree with its use and processing. For us, it goes without saying that only data that is absolutely necessary for the provision of these services is collected. Where we request further data, this is exclusively for the purpose of aiding our communication with you, improving our service, etc. The data you enter in our enquiry form is not saved in any database, but sent directly to Carl Engelkemper Münster.


4. Newsletter

You can subscribe to our newsletter on our website. We need your email address for this. In line with the relevant legal provisions, we also have to verify whether you really are the holder of the email address provided and wish to receive the newsletter. We therefore collect data that makes such verification possible. The data collected in this context is used to send and receive the newsletter. It has no other purpose and is not disclosed to third parties. Apart from the information necessary for sending the newsletter, we collect no further data. Because sending and receiving the newsletter depends on your permission, you can retract this permission for the collection and saving of your data at any time without stating reasons. To do this, use the “Unsubscribe” link provided in the newsletter. Our newsletter is sent with the help of the service provider CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstraße 43, 26180 Rastede. The email addresses of our recipients and the data described are saved on certified servers from CleverReach exclusively on European territory. CleverReach uses this information to send the newsletter, to analyse the newsletter use on our behalf, and to optimise the service. CleverReach does not use the data for its own purposes, for example for contact purposes, nor disclose it to third parties. We have concluded an order processing contract with CleverReach, in which CleverReach undertakes to protect the data of our recipients, to process it on our behalf in accordance with the applicable data protection provisions, and not to disclose it to third parties. Sending our newsletter allows us to analyse user behaviour. In the reports, data on the recipients who open and click on the newsletter is shown in anonymised form. The collection and processing of full IP addresses is forbidden.


5. Use and processing of personal data

Carl Engelkemper Münster usually uses and processes the personal data given to it for contract execution and to process your enquiries and requests.<br/> Data with personal content is processed and used to a limited extent for support and marketing purposes where statutory regulations permit this. Should you no longer agree with such use, you can of course object to further use at any time using the contact address below.<br/> In addition, the information you provide to us may be combined with saved data we already have on you. Combining data in this way has various advantages: the customer data we have recorded on you is always up to date, the accuracy of the information gathered is guaranteed, and our service to you can be optimised.<br/> We only use and process your data for purposes beyond this if you have provided your explicit permission in advance. The data is only used and processed for the purposes stated.


6. Data disclosure

Needless to say, we do not disclose your data to third parties, unless we are obligated to do so by statutory provisions or a court order. In particular, your personal data will not be sold, hired out or exchanged.


7. Email contact

If you provide us with your email address, we will also communicate with you via email. Should you no longer wish to receive such information, you of course have the option of withdrawing your permission at any time. In this case, please send us a short message at the postal or email address provided.


8. Technical and organisational data protection

Carl Engelkemper Münster of course takes the technical and organisational measures appropriate for each protective purpose, in order to protect the information you provide against misuse and loss. This data is saved in a secure operating environment that is not accessible to the public. In addition, it goes without saying that all our staff are trained in and obligated to adhere to data protection and confidentiality.


9. Amendment of the Privacy Policy

As development of the internet continues, this Privacy Policy has to be continuously adapted to the changing situation. Such changes are announced in good time on this page.
