Data Protection

The protection of your personal data during collection, processing and use as a result of you visiting our website is important to us. Your data is protected under the framework of statutory regulations.

The following section provides you with information on which data is collected during your visit our website and how this is used. These data protection measures apply for the websites of HORN GmbH.


1. Collection and processing of data
a) Every time our website is accessed and every time stored files are retrieved, this is documented. This data is saved for internal system-related and statistical purposes. The following information is documented: name of the retrieved file, date and time of retreival, volume of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, web browser and domain requesting the data. In addition the IP addresses of the requesting computer are documented.
Further personal data is only recorded if you volunteer this information, for instance as part of an enquiry or registration. This data is deleted again upon request.


b) To structure this website in line with user needs and to optimise it, we use solutions and technologies from econda GmbH ( to record and save data which is rendered anonymous and usage profiles are created using pseudonyms from this data. Cookies which allow an internet browser to be recognized again may be used for this purpose. Usage profiles are not matched up with the data on the bearer of the pseudonym without the explicit consent of the visitor. IP addresses in particular are rendered unrecognizable directly after entry, making it impossible to match usage profiles to IP addresses. Visitors to this website can decide to stop this data being collected and saved on them in the future at any time. To stop data being saved click on the following link:

2. Use and forwarding of personal data
If you have provided us with personal data while registering, we use this only to answer your enquiries, to wind up contracts entered into with you, to maintain and service your customer account and for technical administration.

Your personal data is only passed on to third parties or transmitted in any other way if this is necessary to fulfil the contract – in particular the forwarding of order data to suppliers – or for billing purposes or you have given your prior consent. This consent can be revoked with immediate effect at any time.

Saved personal data is deleted if you revoke your consent for it to be saved, if the data is no longer required for the purpose it was originally saved for or if it being saved is not permitted for other legal reasons.

3. Right of information
Upon written request we will be happy to inform you of the data saved on you. In accordance with the German Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) you have the right to information free of charge about the data saved on you and, where appropriate, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data.

4. Security notice
We do all we can to take all technical and organisational measures to store your data in such a way that it is not accessible to third parties. When communicating by e-mail we cannot ensure full data security, we therefore recommend using snail mail for confidential information.


5. Links to websites which do not belong to HORN GmbH
To further improve user-friendliness and to offer a broader range of information HORN GmbH websites may contain links to websites of third parties. If you click on such links, you leave HORN GmbH’s websites. These sites or their data protection measures (which may differ from the data protection measures of HORN GmbH) are not subject to checks by HORN GmbH. We are not responsible for the information or content on external websites. Personal data which you pass on to third parties not associated with HORN GmbH are not covered by HORN GmbH’s data protection statement.
