Data protection declaration for registration at

The person concerned has the option of registering on the website of the processing controller, indicating personal data. The personal data transmitted to the processing controller in this case is specified in the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data supplied by the person concerned shall be collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the processing controller and for in-house purposes. The processing controller may arrange for the data to be forwarded to one or more processors, such as a parcel service provider, who shall also use the personal data exclusively for internal purposes.

By registering on the website of the processing controller, the IP address assigned by the Internet server provider (ISP) of the person concerned, the date as well as the time of registration are also saved. The storage of this data is carried out on the basis that this is the only way to prevent misuse of our services. This data is used where necessary to clarify offences committed. It is therefore necessary to store this data in order to safeguard the processing controller. This data will not be passed on to third parties as a matter of principle, unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the data is used for criminal prosecution.

The processing controller shall provide any persons concerned at any time upon request with information regarding which personal data about the person concerned is stored. Furthermore, the processing controller shall also rectify or delete personal data on the written instruction of the person concerned. A data protection officer identified by name in this data protection declaration and the entire staff of the processing controller shall be at the disposal of the persons concerned as contact points in this connection.

Data protection declaration for newsletter tracking

BACKER ELC AG regularly informs its customers and business partners about the company’s services by sending them a newsletter. The newsletter issued by our company can only be received by the person concerned in principle if (1) the person concerned has a valid e-mail address and (2) the person concerned is stored as a customer of BACKER ELC AG in the customer database or has registered to receive the newsletter. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by the person concerned initially for the purpose of sending the newsletter for legal reasons using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address as the person concerned has given permission to receive the newsletter. When registering to receive our newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. It is necessary to collect this data in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of the person concerned at a later point in time and therefore serves as a legal safeguard for the processing controller. The personal data collected as part of registering for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. Subscribers to the newsletter may also be contacted by e-mail if this is necessary for the running of the newsletter service or a registration is required, as might be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter service or changes to technical circumstances. The personal data collected in the context of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. Subscription to our newsletter may be cancelled by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the person concerned has given us for receiving the newsletter, can be withdrawn at any time. A corresponding link can be found in every newsletter so that the consent can be withdrawn. There is also the possibility of unsubscribing from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of BACKER ELC AG or of notifying the processing controller of this in any other way.

Data protection declaration for the website at

If the person concerned contacts the processing controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned shall be automatically stored. Such personal data voluntarily transmitted by the person concerned to the processing controller is stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the person concerned. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

Data protection declaration for revocation

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulation to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the person concerned wishes to exercise their right to revoke their consent, they can contact our data protection officer or another employee of the processing controller at any time for this purpose.

Since we are a responsible company, we do not make automated decisions.
