Privacy policy

As the controller GEUTEBRUECK GmbH, Im Nassen 7 – 9, 53578 Windhagen attaches great importance to the protection of your privacy. We understand that you trust us to responsibly handle the personal information that you entrust to us. The following privacy policy informs you about the collection and processing of personal data on this website. It explains how we handle your personal information and what you can expect when you use our web services.

I. Personal data processing on

Every time you visit the website at, personal data is automatically collected and processed. The following data is collected for the purposes of ensuring a problem-free connection to the website, generating visitor statistics on the use of this website, improving the website, and ensuring system security and stability:

  • Date of visit to the respective URL
  • URL viewed by the visitor immediately before (referrer URL)
  • The visitor’s Internet browser
  • The visitor’s operating system
  • The IP address of the computer used to visit the site

The legal basis for the data processing is Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is in line with the data collection purposes listed above.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected. Where the data is stored in log files, this time period is no more than seven days. In some cases, additional storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that identification of the user is no longer possible.

II. Use of cookies

In order to make your visit to our website attractive and enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called “cookies”. These are small text files that are temporarily stored on your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.). After the end of the browser session, the cookies used are deleted from your hard drive (so-called “session cookies”). The use of cookies serves to make the use of our website easier for you and increase user-friendliness. The legal basis for the data processing is Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is in line with the data collection purposes listed above.  Most browsers accept cookies automatically. As a user, you have full control over the use of cookies. You have the option to prevent the storage of cookies on your computer with appropriate browser settings. Please check with your browser provider for the exact procedure. You can also delete already saved cookies at any time. This can also be done automatically. This website will still be accessible in this case, though its functionality will be limited.

III. PartnerPortal

The website is designed as a portal exclusively for our partners. After successful registration and subsequent login to the portal, partners have access to extensive information about the products and services we offer. In addition, (support) tickets can be created, and products and services can be ordered from us at a discounted rate. In order to offer you these services, we process the first and last name of the contact person, the name of the partner company, as well as contact and address data.  The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1(b) GDPR. If the contractual relationship ends, or if you request the deletion of the partner account, the processed personal data will be deleted. This does not apply if tax or commercial retention requirements preclude deletion, or if the processed personal data is required for the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims.

IV. Matomo

We use the analysis software Matomo (formerly PIWIK) for marketing and optimization purposes. The software places a cookie on users’ computers (see point II). These cookies have a retention period of one week. If individual pages of our website are visited, the IP address of the accessing system of the user, the URL at which the visitor is located, the URL that the visitor visited immediately before, the length of the stay on the website, the frequency of the access to the website and, after logging into the PartnerPortal, the user ID are collected.

With the use of Matomo, we want to ensure needs-based design and continuous optimization of our website. On the other hand, we also use Matomo to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our service for you. Information about which products and services you have viewed and commissioned on the Partner Portal will be collected during this process. With this information, we aim to improve our service and offer you products and services that are specific to your interests and based on your usage patterns.

Matomo runs on the company’s own servers. The processing of the users’ personal data takes place on the basis of Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1(a), Article 7 GDPR. The granted consent can be withdrawn at any time with effect for the future.

We also offer users of our website the option of opting out of the analysis process. To do so, please click on the following link:

In this case, an opt-out cookie is stored in your browser that prevents the collection of session data. If you delete your cookies, you automatically delete the opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie must then be reset.

After 180 days users’ data is deleted.

V. Personal data transfer

Personal data will not be otherwise processed without your explicit consent in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1(a) GDPR, unless pursuant to Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1(c) GDPR there is a legal obligation to do so, this is legally required pursuant to Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1(b) GDPR for the handling of contractual relationships or if the disclosure pursuant to Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1(f) GDPR is required to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims, and there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your information.

VI. Data security

The website is protected by technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification, or dissemination of your data by unauthorized persons. Within the visit, we use the widely used SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. In general, this is a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. Whether an individual page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form is indicated by the closed representation of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser. Despite regular checks, full protection against all risks is not possible. Nevertheless, our security measures are constantly being improved in line with technological developments.
