By means of this data protection declaration, Strekin would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process.

As the controller, Strekin has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed.

1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of Strekin is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable. Therefore, we would like to first explain the terminology used.

In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:

Personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”). 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 to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Data subject

Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.


Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.


Controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.


Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body, which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

Third party

Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data

2. Collection of general data and information

The website of Strekin automatically collects a series of general data and information when a data subject calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files for a short time. Collected may be the browser types and versions used, the operating system used by the accessing system, the date and time of access to the Internet site, an Internet protocol address (IP address), the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, Strekin does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to deliver the content of our website correctly, optimize the content of our website, and ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process.

We store this data only for a short time and delete it at regular intervals. We don’t pass personal data on to third parties (with the exception of our processor/website operator) and don’t use it to analyse access nor to personalise content or advertising.

3. Cookies

The Internet pages of Strekin use cookies for proper function and a user-friendly design. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, Strekin can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.
By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Our website only uses technically necessary cookies, no flash cookies or cookies from third parties. Our website does not use any social media plug-ins or web analysis services.

4. Subscription to our newsletters

On the website of Strekin, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to Strekin's newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.

The data subject may only receive the enterprise’s newsletter if the data subject has a valid email address and the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping.

During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the email address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties (with the exception of our processor/website operator). The data subject may terminate the subscription to our newsletter at any time. For this purpose a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way.

5. Newsletter-tracking

The newsletter of Strekin contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such emails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of the sent newsletter. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Strekin may see what percentage of the emails were opened, and to what percentage links in the email were called up. This is only a general statistic of all data subjects; it is not broken down to the level of one data subject.
Such data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters will not be passed on to third parties (with the exception of the website operator).

6. Contact possibility via the website

The website of the Strekin contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (email address). If a data subject contacts the controller by email or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties (with the exception of the processor/website operator).

7. Routine erasures and storage of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage.
If the storage purpose is not applicable personal data are routinely erased at regular intervals within a couple of hours.
