We only collect and process our users’ personal data if necessary for deploying a functioning website and making our content and services available. We regularly collect and process personal data from users only after receiving consent from the user. An exception applies in cases where prior consent cannot be practically obtained and legal regulations permit the data in question to be processed.
Each time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.
We collect the following data:
Art. 6, Sec. 1, lit. f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for temporary data storage.
The system must temporarily store the IP address in order to deliver the website to the user’s computer. To do this, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.
Data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data also help us optimize the website and ensure that our information technology systems are secure. No data are evaluated for marketing purposes in this context.
For these purposes, our legitimate interest in data processing is described in Art. 6, Sec. 1, lit. f of the GDPR.
The data will be deleted once it is no longer needed to fulfill the original purpose. For the data collected for the purpose of deploying the website, these conditions are met once the session in question has ended.
Website operation absolutely requires that data be collected for the purpose of website deployment and stored in log files. The user therefore does not have a right of objection in this regard.
Cookies are used for storing information that arises in connection with the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we will immediately become aware of your identity.
The reason for using technically necessary cookies is to make websites easier for users to use. That requires that we be able to identify your browser even after you have moved to another page.
For these purposes, our legitimate interest in processing personal data is described in Art. 6, Sec. 1, lit. f of the GDPR.
Cookies are stored on the user’s computer, which transmits them to us, which is why you as a user have full control over the use of these cookies. By changing the settings in your Internet browser, you can disable or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be automated. If you deactivate cookies for our website, you may not be able to use the full functionality of the site.
The session cookies used are automatically deleted after you leave our site.
A contact form is available on our website, which can be used for contacting us electronically. For users who take advantage of this option, the data entered in the input mask, i.e., the name and email address of the user as well as the content of the request, will be transmitted to us and stored.
As part of the sending process, we will obtain your consent to process this data and will refer to this data privacy statement.
Alternatively, you may also contact us via the email address provided. In this case, we will store the personal data transmitted with the email.
No data will shared with third parties as part of this process. Your data will only be used for processing and responding to your contact request.
Art. 6, Sec. 1, lit. a of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing user data when the user has provided his or her consent.
Art. 6, Sec. 1, lit. f of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing user data transmitted via an email. Art. 6, Sec. 1, lit. b of the GDPR provides the additional legal basis for data processing if the goal of email contact is to conclude a contract.
The sole purpose of processing personal data from the input mask is to process your request for contact. If you contact us by email, this also describes our necessary legitimate interest in processing your data.
This data will be deleted once it is are no longer needed to fulfill the original purpose. This is also the case when a given conversation with the user has ended, regardless of whether the personal data were obtained from the contact form input mask or sent by email. The conversation is considered to have ended when circumstances suggest that the issue at hand has been conclusively clarified.
Users may at any time revoke their consent to processing their personal data. Users who have contacted us by email may object at any time to having their data stored. In this case, however, the conversation cannot be continued.
Users may revoke their consent at any time by sending an email to info(at)wenker.de.
In this case, all personal data stored over the course of contact with the user will be deleted.
If your personal data are being processed, you are considered to be a data subject as defined by the GDPR and have the following rights:
If your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests as defined in Art. 6, Sec. 1, S. 1, lit. f of the GDPR, you have the right, as defined in Art. 21 of the GDPR, to object to having your personal data processed, provided that you have reasons for objecting arising from your particular situation or if your objection pertains to direct marketing. In the latter case, you have a general right to object, which we shall honor and you do not need to specify a special situation.
If you wish to exercise your right of revocation or objection, please send an email to info(at)wenker.de
If you would like more information, if you have any questions regarding collection, processing or use of your personal data, or if you would like your data corrected, blocked or deleted, please contact:

We maintain publicly available profiles in social networks. The individual social networks we use can be found below.
Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter etc. can generally analyze your user behavior comprehensively if you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g., like buttons or banner ads). When you visit our social media pages, numerous data protection-relevant processing operations are triggered. In detail:
If you are logged in to your social media account and visit our social media page, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. Under certain circumstances, your personal data may also be recorded if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data is collected, for example, via cookies stored on your device or by recording your IP address.
Using the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which their preferences and interests are stored. This way you can see interest-based advertising inside and outside of your social media presence. If you have an account with the social network, interest-based advertising can be displayed on any device you are logged in to or have logged in to.
Our social media appearances should ensure the widest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on divergent legal bases to be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g., consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g., Facebook), we, together with the operator of the social media platform, are responsible for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. You can in principle protect your rights (information, correction, deletion, limitation of processing, data portability and complaint) vis-à-vis us as well as vis-à-vis the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g., Facebook).
Please note that despite the shared responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are determined by the company policy of the respective provider.
The data collected directly from us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as you ask us to delete it, you revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses. Stored cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular, retention periods - remain unaffected.
