Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our company, our products and our services.
This privacy and data protection declaration is to inform you on the type, scope, and purpose of the collection, processing, and use of personal data by SPEDION GmbH, when using our website.
Protection of your personal data, including the protection of your personal rights, are very important to us, and accordingly, we process your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal provisions of the data protection regulations.

We collect and use personal data insofar as this is necessary to use our online presence. This includes the name of the accessed webpage, file, date and time of the access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address, and the requesting provider.
This data will not be combined with other data sources. Thereafter, we reserve the right to check this data if we become aware of concrete indications of unlawful use.

Handling of personal data

According to Article 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, username, email address or telephone number, but may also include data such as your IP address.
Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by SPEDION GmbH, if this is lawfully permitted or if you agree to the data being collected.

Security of your data

SPEDION GmbH shall take all appropriate technical and organisational measures to secure personal data in order to protect it from accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. These measures are also being constantly improved and adapted in line with technological developments.

Our webpages integrate functions from the microblogging service Twitter. These functions are provided by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. By using Twitter and the 'Retweet' function, the websites you visit are linked to your Twitter account and made known to other users. Data is also transmitted to Twitter. We would like to point out that, as the operator of this website, we are not aware of the content of the data transmitted or how it is used by Twitter. For more information, please see Twitter's privacy policy at

Our website uses plugins from YouTube, a subsidiary of Google. Its website is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit one of our webpages containing a YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube's servers is established, informing YouTube which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged into your YouTube account, you also enable YouTube to associate your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. 
Further information on YouTube's handling of user data can be found in their privacy policy at

SSL encryption

For security reasons, our website uses SSL encryption to protect the transmission of confidential data, such as enquiries you send us as the operator of the website. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the change in your browser's address line from 'http://' to 'https://' and the addition of a padlock symbol in the address bar.
When SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by a third party.

Right to information, deletion, blocking

On request, you have the right to receive, free of charge, information about your personal data that is stored by us. You also have the right to correct inaccurate data, as well as block, delete, change and update your personal data, insofar as there are no legal obligations preventing this.
