We want to inform you about the collection, processing and use (“utilisation” in what follows) of personal data in this data protection declaration. In Point 11, you will find how you can object to the utilisation of your personal data according to the relevant data protection provisions. 1. Name and address of the responsible party:
tesa scribos GmbH
Dr Christoph Dietrich (Chairman), Peter Kuich2. Collection and processing of personal data
The subject of the data protection is personal data. This is all information related to an identified or identifiable natural person, according to the General Data Protection Regulation. For example, information such as name, mailing address, email address or telephone number fall under this but, as the case may be, also usage data such as your IP address.
In case of questions of any kind, we offer you the option of contacting us using a form provided on our website. In the process, the data indicated as mandatory information are required to be able to classify and answer the query. Further information can be provided voluntarily.
The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be deleted after the enquiry placed by you has been handled and after expiration of the duty to preserve records in terms of tax and commercial law.
You can revoke consent once given – for example for the purpose of the sending of a newsletter or other interesting information from our company – at any time with effect for the future, without providing information on the reasons. You can use the above-mentioned contact form for this or another way mentioned in the newsletter. 3. Purpose of data collection, processing or usage:
tesa scribos GmbH collects, processes and uses (“utilises” in what follows) the personal data provided by you in as far as they are necessary for the initiation, substantiation, execution or termination of a contractual obligation or one similar to a contractual obligation with you or for the use of a service provided by us (Art 6(1)(b) GDPR). This type of relationship arises for example when you contact us in order to get information about us or about our products or when you use the extranet login as a customer. In cases like this, we utilise your personal data to be able to process your particular case.
If you agree to utilisation of personal data for advertising and market research purposes, we will also utilise your data for the respective purpose covered in your agreement (e.g. for the newsletter), as long as you do not revoke your consent. This means that we may contact you in the ways you gave on the declaration of consent (e.g. by email, telephone or post) and may provide you with information and with individualised advertising on our products and services based on the assessment of your purchase and clicking behaviour on our website. Ultimately, we also utilise your data for analysis and improvement of the effectivity of our website. 4. Receivers or categories of receivers to whom data may be communicated:
While processing your request, it could be necessary to pass on your personal data to other associated companies within the tesa Group or to external service providers who are acting exclusively on our instructions.
We employ service providers to some extent for the legally required order processing of data; hence the website is hosted by NMMN New Media Markets & Networks IT-Services GmbH and maintained by Plan A GmbH and Agnosco.net GmbH. Newsletter dispatch occurs via CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG. Total responsibility for the data processing remains with us in the process. Additionally, we use plug-ins from other providers to some extent; you will find more on this further below.
Your personal data are always treated confidentially by us and not passed on to other third parties not acting on our instruction, unless you have agreed to the transfer in writing or by telephone or we are legally entitled or obliged on this.
We point out to you that we do also pass on your personal data, if need be, to other worldwide companies within our network [see “About us”]. We transfer the data collected in the context of the contact form to the company that is responsible for the processing of your enquiry. Therefore, the processing of your personal data can also occur in countries outside the EU/EEA, in as far as this is required for answering it. 5. Utilisation of cookies

(2) Google AdWords
This website utilises Google AdWords, an analysis service from Google and, in the context of Google AdWords, conversion tracking. In this respect, a cookie for conversion tracking is stored on the hard drive of your computer (so-called “conversion cookie”) when you click on an advertisement placed by Google. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website, we and Google can recognise that you have clicked on the advertisement and were passed on to this page.
The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookies serves to prepare statistics for AdWords customers who use conversion tracking. Through these statistics, we learn the total number of users who clicked on the advertisement placed by Google and called up a page provided with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not obtain any information with which the personal identification of users is possible. We cannot match the data obtained to specific users.
Along with conversion tracking, we also utilise the functions
- target groups with joint interests
- user-defined target groups with joint interests
- target groups prepared to purchase and
- similar target groups* demographic and geographic orientation.

We utilise Google’s DoubleClick function on our websites, in order to analyse usage of the website and to enable us, Google and other advertisers who work with DoubleClick to be able to present you with user-relevant advertising. For this purpose, a cookie is installed on the hard drive of your computer. With the help of this cookie, a pseudonym identification number is assigned to your browser, and information is collected on the advertising displayed on your browser and its call-up. The information on your use of websites collected by the cookie is passed on to a Google server in the USA as a rule and stored there. On the basis of the information collected, your browser is allocated with categories relevant to interests. These categories are used to place interest-related advertising.
