What data is processed and for what purposes?

Calling up the website

The website is hosted by an order processor. When you visit the website, the processor stores so-called log files.

These include the call (request), the IP address, browser type and language, and the date and time of the call.

The information is used to analyze and maintain the technical operation of the servers and the network, as well as to combat abuse, and is automatically deleted after 7 days. The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of legitimate interest in improving stability and functionality. The data is not passed on or used in any other way.

Consent management

We use the consent management tool CCM19 from Papoo Software & Media on our website. The tool enables you to give consent to data processing via the website, in particular the setting of cookies, as well as to exercise your right of revocation for consent already given.

Data processing serves the purpose of obtaining and documenting required consents to data processing and thus complying with legal obligations.

Cookies may be used for this purpose. Among other things, the following information is collected and transmitted to CCM19: Date and time of the page view, a random ID, Consent Status. Papoo Software & Media does not process the data itself, the data is stored as a log file. A transfer of this data to other third parties does not take place. The data processing is carried out to fulfill a legal obligation on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR .



The data processed by cookies, which are required for the proper functioning of the website, are necessary to protect our legitimate interests as well as those of third parties in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

For all other cookies, you have given your consent to this via our opt-in cookie banner in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR.

You can change your settings in the footer below.

Web analysis

We have integrated the Matomo component of the provider InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, on this website. Matomo is a software tool for web analysis, i.e. for collecting, collating and evaluating data on the behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, data is collected about the website from which a data subject has accessed a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. This is used to optimize the website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

Matomo sets a cookie on your IT system. The setting of the cookie enables us to analyze the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, the Internet browser on your IT system is automatically prompted by the Matomo component to transmit data to our server for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical procedure, we obtain knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which we use, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks.

By means of the cookie, personal information, for example the access time, the place from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website are stored. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection you are using, is transmitted to our server. This personal data is stored by us. We do not pass on this personal data to third parties.

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Matomo from setting a cookie on your IT system. In addition, a cookie already set by Matomo can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, you have the option to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Matomo related to a use of this website. To do this, you must set an opt-out cookie. If your IT system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later time, the data subject must set an opt-out cookie again. However, with the setting of the opt-out cookie, there is the possibility that our Internet pages are no longer fully usable for you.

These processing operations are carried out exclusively when explicit consent is given in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Matomo can be found at https://matomo.org/privacy/.

Contact form in the digital showroom (avs-showroom.com)

When you use the contact form, personal data is processed from them. As a rule, your e-mail address and your name. This data is used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your request or for contacting you and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If your contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your request, this is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter concerned has been conclusively clarified and provided that there are no statutory retention obligations to the contrary.

The digital showroom is hosted by dreiform GmbH, which acts as an order processor for us.

Application Management

The data protection information for applicants can be found in our career portal:


Google Maps
On our website we use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps in order to visually present geographical information.

Already when calling up those sub-pages in which the map of Google Maps is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers in the USA and stored there. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at Google, you must log out of your Google user account. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right.

These processing operations will only be carried out if you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a GDPR.

Detailed information on data protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found on the Google website ("Google Privacy Policy"): https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

How long is the data stored?

Unless otherwise stated in the other information in this statement about specific processing operations, personal data are deleted when they are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected and no retention periods prevent their deletion.  

Who are the recipients of data?

Unless previously mentioned, personal data will not be disclosed by us to third parties as a matter of principle. In particular, your data will not be disclosed to third parties for their advertising purposes.

However, we may use service providers, such as the order processors already mentioned. Here it may happen that a service provider obtains knowledge of personal data.  

What rights do you have?

You have the right to information about the personal data we process about you. Furthermore, you have a right to rectification or deletion or to restriction of processing, insofar as you are entitled to this by law.

And you have a right to object to processing within the scope of the law. The same applies to a right to data portability.

In particular, you have a right to object to the processing of your data in connection with direct marketing, pursuant to Article 21(1) and (2) of the GDPR, if this is carried out on the basis of a balancing of interests.

Last but not least, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection.
