Dieter Schwarz Stiftung gemeinnützige GmbH
Rötelstraße 35

Communication by Email/Phone/Fax/Mail

Purpose of Data Processing/Legal Basis:

We will keep the personal data you provide to us by email/phone/fax/mail confidential, of course. Your data will only be used for the intended purpose in order to process your request. The legal basis for the processing of your data shall be Art. 6(1) (f) GDPR. The legitimate interest arises from the interest of responding to your requests, thereby maintaining and increasing customer satisfaction.

Recipients/Categories of Recipients:

In general, we will not share your data with any third parties outside the Dieter Schwarz Foundation. Only in exceptional cases will your data be processed by data processors on our behalf. These are all carefully selected, audited by us and bound by contract pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR.

Storage Period/Criteria for Determining the Storage Period:

All personal data that you provide to us in case of enquiries is deleted or securely anonymised no later than 90 days after you have received our final response. Storage of the data for 90 days is due to the fact that there may be occasions in which you contact us again on the same matter following a reply and we need to refer to the earlier correspondence in these cases. Experience has shown that there are generally no more questions regarding our replies after 90 days. When exercising your data subject rights, your personal data will be stored for 3 years after our final response to demonstrate that we have provided you with comprehensive information and that legal requirements are met.

We use “cookies” on this website. Cookies are small text files that are sent from our web server to your device (desktop computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet) and stored in your web browser when you visit this website. The cookies used on our website can have various functions.

For our “cookie notification bar”, which is displayed to you when your visit our homepage, we use cookieBAR.

Statistical Analysis of the Number of Website Visitors

The provider of these web pages automatically collects and stores information in “server log files”, which your browser automatically transmits to us.

Storage of the IP Address

We store the IP address transmitted by your web browser strictly related to the intended purpose for a period of 7 days in order to detect, limit and eliminate any attacks on our website. At the end of this period, we will delete or anonymise the IP address. The legal basis for this and the processing of the usage data stated below shall be Art. 6(1) (f) GDPR.

When you visit our website, our web server temporarily stores so-called usage data for statistical purposes in a log to improve the quality of our web pages. This data set consists of:

• Type and version of your browser
• Operating system used
• Referrer URL
• Hostname of the accessing computer

External Links

Our website may contain external links to third-party websites, of which we have no control. For instance, you will find an external link to Facebook and Twitter on various subpages. No direct connection is made to your Facebook account solely by the fact that these links have been created.

On various subpages, video files may temporarily be provided to be played in a YouTube frame. If you play the video, you will access the website of Google Inc. via the frame itself. Please be aware that data will be transmitted to the relevant provider after activating the video.

We have no control of the extent of the data and the way Google Inc. processes your data when you access the YouTube website. Google Inc. shall be legally responsible in this case.

Matomo (formerly Piwik)

This website uses the web analysis service Matomo. The information recorded by Matomo about the use of this website is stored on our server. The IP address is only collected in abbreviated form. There is therefore no processing of personal data.

With the help of Matomo, we are able to collect and analyze data on the use of our website by website visitors. This allows us to find out when which page views were made and from which region they came. We also collect various log files (e.g. IP address, referrer, browser and operating system used) and can measure whether our website visitors perform certain actions (e.g. clicks, purchases, etc.). "


We host Matomo with the following third-party provider:

Rotebühlstrasse 44
70178 Stuttgart

Order processing

We have concluded an order processing agreement (AVV) with the above-mentioned provider. This is a contract required by data protection law, which ensures that this provider only processes the personal data of our website visitors in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the DSGVO.
