Thank you for your interest in HÖRMANN Logistik GmbH. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the company.

You can use the website without providing any personal data. If a data subject wants to use our services via the website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and if there is no legal basis for such processing, we will always obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data (e.g. the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject) shall always be compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to us, in particular the Federal Data Protection Act.

With the following data protection declaration, we would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Accordingly, data subjects are informed about the rights to which they are entitled by this privacy policy.

As the controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through our website.

However, data transmissions via the Internet can always contain security vulnerabilities. Therefore, no one hundred percent protection can be guaranteed. Any data subject may of course also transmit personal data to the company by alternative means, e.g. by telephone.

5. collection and storage of personal data and the nature and purpose of their use

a) When visiting the website

In principle, you can use this website without disclosing your identity. When you call up the website, information is automatically sent to the website server by the browser used on your end device. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without your intervention and stored until automatic deletion:

  • IP address of the requesting computer,
  • Date and time of access,
  • Name and URL of the accessed file,
  • Internet page from which the access is made (referrer URL),
  • browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider.


The company processes the aforementioned data for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection setup of the website,
  • Ensuring a comfortable use of the website,
  • evaluation of system security and stability as well as
  • for other administrative purposes.


The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The legitimate interest of the company derives from the purposes for data collection listed above. At no time the collected data is used for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person. The data will be deleted after 14 days at the latest.

In addition, we use cookies and analysis services when you visit the website. You can find more detailed explanations on this subject in sections 9 and 11 of this data protection declaration.

b) When using the contact form or contacting us by e-mail

In case of questions of any kind, we offer you the possibility to contact the company via a form provided on the website or by e-mail. In doing so, it is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address so that it is known from whom the inquiry originates, so that we can respond to it. Further information can be provided voluntarily. It is your free decision whether you want to enter this data in the contact form or in the e-mail.

The processing of the data entered is carried out for the purpose of processing your inquiry. The data will be deleted immediately after processing your request, unless there are legal retention periods.

The legal basis for data processing is, if the request is necessary for the execution of a contract or for pre-contractual measures, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO and, in the case of legal retention requirements, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DSGVO, otherwise the legitimate interests, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We also have a legitimate interest in processing your inquiries that are not of a pre-contractual or contractual nature, in order to provide you with the best possible service.

The data will be processed exclusively for the purpose of responding to your inquiry and will be retained for the duration of the statutory retention obligation (6 years in accordance with Section 257 (1) No. 2, (4) of the German Commercial Code (HGB)), in case of commercial letters. Otherwise, the data will be deleted immediately after we have answered your inquiry.

6. Further explanations on the legal basis of processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DSGVO serves us as the legal basis for processing operations for which consent must be obtained for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the completion of a contract to which the data subject is a party involved, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the completion of pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of inquiries about services and products. If we are subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DSGVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. In this case, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. d DSGVO. Furthermore, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of us or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator (see recital 47, sentence 2 of the GDPR).

7. consideration of legitimate interests

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DSGVO, the legitimate interest of us is the implementation and fulfillment of business activities for the benefit of employees and shareholders.
