Thank you for visiting the Krass + Wissing GmbH website. We attach great importance to the secure and confidential processing of your data, in particular taking into account the applicable legal regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Telecommunications Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG) and other data protection regulations. In order to meet these requirements, we have taken technical as well as organisational measures to ensure that these regulations are complied with.

In principle, you can also visit this website without leaving us any personal data. To do this, you may have to make settings in the browser you use. The data collected on this website is processed exclusively for the purposes stated. Your data will not be passed on to third parties unless this is necessary for a specific purpose or you have consented to this.


1. Personal data


According to Article 4 (1) of the GDPR, personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more factors specific to that person, such as names, addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail or IP addresses.


2. Data collection and processing while visiting the website


When this website is accessed, data is automatically sent to the server of this website by the internet browser used by the visitor and stored in a log file for a limited period of time. The log files are technically necessary for us so that the page you have called up can be displayed to you. The legal basis for the storage of this data results from Art. 6 para. 1 p.1 lit. f) GDPR. They are deleted within 60 days after you call up the website. Until automatic deletion, the following data is stored without further input by the visitor:

  • Used browser
  • Time of the page request
  • Success or failure of the page view
  • Operating system of the visitor
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Refferer URL
  • IP address used for access

The log files are also used for statistical evaluations and to improve the website (legal basis Art. 6 para. 1 p.1 lit. f) GDPR. In this way, we can identify possible errors such as faulty links. In connection with your use of the website, the IP address of the computer you are using is recorded, among other things. Under certain circumstances, it may be possible to identify users of the website via the IP address. However, we do not evaluate the recorded IP addresses for this purpose. The IP addresses are evaluated exclusively on a statistical basis in anonymised form. We also receive technical information through the use of Matomo, which is transmitted by your browser. This information is evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes. You can find more information on the use of Matomo below.

Insofar as the collection of your data is technically necessary for the provision of our website, there is no right to object to the processing of your personal data.

Cookies are used when you visit this website. Cookies are stored on your computer by your web browser when you open one of our web pages. They are used to improve the quality of service when you visit this website. When you visit the website, you can use the cookie notice to decide whether or not you wish to accept the use of cookies that are not technically necessary.

Our website uses transient cookies, i.e. time-limited first-party cookies that are absolutely necessary for the holistic use of the website. Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include, in particular, session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint session. This enables your computer to be recognised when you return to the website. The session cookies are deleted when you close the browser. The legal basis for the use of these cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 p.1 lit. f) GDPR, as they are technically indispensable to display the website correctly.

4. Matomo


We use the Matomo service from matomo.org, whose representative in the EU is ePrivacy Holding GmbH Große Bleichen 21 20354 Hamburg, to measure the reach of our website.

Reach measurement includes the evaluation of visitor flows to our website, for example, according to behaviour, age, interests or gender. This enables us to find out in particular which parts of our website can still be improved.

We also use Matomo for so-called A/B tests. In this, we analyse which of various of our online offers are better visited than others.

This service runs locally on our own web server. No cookies or other data are stored or read on your device. We process your IP address pseudonymously. This means that we shorten the IP address so that you can no longer be clearly identified.

We process the following data: which of our websites you have visited, the associated access times, device information, your masked IP address.

The processing is based on our legitimate interest in optimising our website in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
