The dura­tion of the pro­cess­ing depends on the pur­pose of the ful­fil­ment of the con­tract as well as the asso­ci­at­ed fur­ther legal require­ments for stor­age and pro­vi­sion of evi­dence. For direct adver­tis­ing we will use the data for as long as you have not object­ed.

Google Analytics

This web­site uses func­tions of the web analy­sis ser­vice Google Ana­lyt­ics. The provider of this ser­vice is Google Ire­land Lim­it­ed (“Google”), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dublin 4, Ire­land.

Google Ana­lyt­ics enables the web­site oper­a­tor to ana­lyze the behav­ior pat­terns of web­site vis­i­tors. To that end, the web­site oper­a­tor receives a vari­ety of user data, such as pages accessed, time spent on the page, the uti­lized oper­at­ing sys­tem and the user’s ori­gin. Google may con­sol­i­date these data in a pro­file that is allo­cat­ed to the respec­tive user or the user’s device.

Google Ana­lyt­ics uses tech­nolo­gies that make the recog­ni­tion of the user for the pur­pose of ana­lyz­ing the user behav­ior pat­terns (e.g. cook­ies or device fin­ger­print­ing). The web­site use infor­ma­tion record­ed by Google is, as a rule trans­ferred to a Google serv­er in the Unit­ed States, where it is stored.

This analy­sis tool is used on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The oper­a­tor of this web­site has a legit­i­mate inter­est in the analy­sis of user pat­terns to opti­mize both, the ser­vices offered online and the operator’s adver­tis­ing activ­i­ties. If a cor­re­spond­ing agree­ment has been request­ed (e.g. an agree­ment to the stor­age of cook­ies), the pro­cess­ing takes place exclu­sive­ly on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agree­ment can be revoked at any time.

IP anonymization

On this web­site, we have acti­vat­ed the IP anonymiza­tion func­tion. As a result, your IP address will be abbre­vi­at­ed by Google with­in the mem­ber states of the Euro­pean Union or in oth­er states that have rat­i­fied the Con­ven­tion on the Euro­pean Eco­nom­ic Area pri­or to its trans­mis­sion to the Unit­ed States. The full IP address will be trans­mit­ted to one of Google’s servers in the Unit­ed States and abbre­vi­at­ed there only in excep­tion­al cas­es. On behalf of the oper­a­tor of this web­site, Google shall use this infor­ma­tion to ana­lyze your use of this web­site to gen­er­ate reports on web­site activ­i­ties and to ren­der oth­er ser­vices to the oper­a­tor of this web­site that are relat­ed to the use of the web­site and the Inter­net. The IP address trans­mit­ted in con­junc­tion with Google Ana­lyt­ics from your brows­er shall not be merged with oth­er data in Google’s pos­ses­sion.

Browser plug-in

Contract data processing

We have exe­cut­ed a con­tract data pro­cess­ing agree­ment with Google and are imple­ment­ing the strin­gent pro­vi­sions of the Ger­man data pro­tec­tion agen­cies to the fullest when using Google Ana­lyt­ics.


Our web­sites and pages use what the indus­try refers to as “cook­ies.” Cook­ies are small text files that do not cause any dam­age to your device. They are either stored tem­porar­i­ly for the dura­tion of a ses­sion (ses­sion cook­ies) or they are per­ma­nent­ly archived on your device (per­ma­nent cook­ies). Ses­sion cook­ies are auto­mat­i­cal­ly delet­ed once you ter­mi­nate your vis­it. Per­ma­nent cook­ies remain archived on your device until you active­ly delete them or they are auto­mat­i­cal­ly erad­i­cat­ed by your web brows­er.

The fol­low­ing cook­ies are used: Ses­sion-Cook­ies, cdmm­Cat­a­log, LB Per­sis­tent-Cook­ies (30 Days Stor­age), cdmmCatalog_region, cookieconsent_dismissed

Server log files

The provider of this web­site and its pages auto­mat­i­cal­ly col­lects and stores infor­ma­tion in so-called serv­er log files, which your brows­er com­mu­ni­cates to us auto­mat­i­cal­ly. The infor­ma­tion com­pris­es:

  • The type and ver­sion of brows­er used
  • The used oper­at­ing sys­tem
  • Refer­rer URL
  • The host­name of the access­ing com­put­er
  • The time of the serv­er inquiry
  • The IP address

This data is not merged with oth­er data sources.

This data is record­ed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The oper­a­tor of the web­site has a legit­i­mate inter­est in the tech­ni­cal­ly error free depic­tion and the opti­miza­tion of the operator’s web­site. In order to achieve this, serv­er log files must be record­ed.

Contact form

If you sub­mit inquiries to us via our con­tact form, the infor­ma­tion pro­vid­ed in the con­tact form as well as any con­tact infor­ma­tion pro­vid­ed there­in will be stored by us in order to han­dle your inquiry and in the event that we have fur­ther ques­tions. We will not share this infor­ma­tion with­out your con­sent.

The pro­cess­ing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is relat­ed to the exe­cu­tion of a con­tract or if it is nec­es­sary to car­ry out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­sures. In all oth­er cas­es the pro­cess­ing is based on our legit­i­mate inter­est in the effec­tive pro­cess­ing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your agree­ment (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this has been request­ed.

The infor­ma­tion you have entered into the con­tact form shall remain with us until you ask us to erad­i­cate the data, revoke your con­sent to the archiv­ing of data or if the pur­pose for which the infor­ma­tion is being archived no longer exists (e.g. after we have con­clud­ed our response to your inquiry). This shall be with­out prej­u­dice to any manda­to­ry legal pro­vi­sions – in par­tic­u­lar reten­tion peri­ods.

Request by e-mail, telephone or fax

If you con­tact us by e-mail, tele­phone or fax, your request, includ­ing all result­ing per­son­al data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the pur­pose of pro­cess­ing your request. We do not pass these data on with­out your con­sent.

These data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR if your inquiry is relat­ed to the ful­fill­ment of a con­tract or is required for the per­for­mance of pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­sures. In all oth­er cas­es, the data are processed on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­est in the effec­tive han­dling of inquiries sub­mit­ted to us (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR) if it has been obtained.

The data sent by you to us via con­tact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your con­sent to the stor­age or the pur­pose for the data stor­age laps­es (e.g. after com­ple­tion of your request). Manda­to­ry statu­to­ry pro­vi­sions — in par­tic­u­lar statu­to­ry reten­tion peri­ods — remain unaf­fect­ed.

Data processing for advertising purposes

We only use your data for our own adver­tis­ing pur­pos­es. We would like to inform you about new prod­ucts, our ser­vices and inter­est­ing events. There­fore, we also use your data to rec­om­mend cer­tain prod­ucts, ser­vices or events that might inter­est you in addi­tion to your pur­chas­es. The eval­u­a­tion of your pur­chase his­to­ry and the send­ing of cor­re­spond­ing adver­tis­ing by post or e-mail to exist­ing cus­tomers is only car­ried out for prod­ucts and ser­vices of Say­Way GmbH, tak­ing into account your legit­i­mate inter­ests. The dis­patch by e-mail is only car­ried out with your con­sent, which you can revoke at any time with effect for the future. Newslet­ters will only be sent to you on the basis of a sep­a­rate con­sent. Fur­ther infor­ma­tion about your rights can be found under the head­ing “Rights of data sub­jects”.


Newsletter data

If you would like to sub­scribe to the newslet­ter offered on this web­site, we will need from you an e-mail address as well as infor­ma­tion that allow us to ver­i­fy that you are the own­er of the e-mail address pro­vid­ed and con­sent to the receipt of the newslet­ter. No fur­ther data shall be col­lect­ed or shall be col­lect­ed only on a vol­un­tary basis. We shall use such data only for the send­ing of the request­ed infor­ma­tion and shall not share such data with any third par­ties.

The pro­cess­ing of the infor­ma­tion entered into the newslet­ter sub­scrip­tion form shall occur exclu­sive­ly on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). You may revoke the con­sent you have giv­en to the archiv­ing of data, the e-mail address and the use of this infor­ma­tion for the send­ing of the newslet­ter at any time, for instance by click­ing on the “Unsub­scribe” link in the newslet­ter. This shall be with­out prej­u­dice to the law­ful­ness of any data pro­cess­ing trans­ac­tions that have tak­en place to date.

The data deposit­ed with us for the pur­pose of sub­scrib­ing to the newslet­ter will be stored by us until you unsub­scribe from the newslet­ter or the newslet­ter ser­vice provider and delet­ed from the newslet­ter dis­tri­b­u­tion list after you unsub­scribe from the newslet­ter. Data stored for oth­er pur­pos­es with us remain unaf­fect­ed.

After you unsub­scribe from the newslet­ter dis­tri­b­u­tion list, your e-mail address may be stored by us or the newslet­ter ser­vice provider in a black­list to pre­vent future mail­ings. The data from the black­list is used only for this pur­pose and not merged with oth­er data. This serves both your inter­est and our inter­est in com­ply­ing with the legal require­ments when send­ing newslet­ters (legit­i­mate inter­est with­in the mean­ing of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). The stor­age in the black­list is indef­i­nite. You may object to the stor­age if your inter­ests out­weigh our legit­i­mate inter­est.

If you log an objec­tion, we will no longer process your affect­ed per­son­al data, unless we are in a posi­tion to present com­pelling pro­tec­tion wor­thy grounds for the pro­cess­ing of your data, that out­weigh your inter­ests, rights and free­doms or if the pur­pose of the pro­cess­ing is the claim­ing, exer­cis­ing or defence of legal enti­tle­ments (objec­tion pur­suant to art. 21 sect. 1 GDPR).

If your per­son­al data is being processed in order to engage in direct adver­tis­ing, you have the right to at any time object to the pro­cess­ing of your affect­ed per­son­al data for the pur­pos­es of such adver­tis­ing.

With­in the scope of the applic­a­ble statu­to­ry pro­vi­sions, you have the right to at any time demand infor­ma­tion about your archived per­son­al data, their source and recip­i­ents as well as the pur­pose of the pro­cess­ing of your data.

To do so, you may con­tact us at any time at the address pro­vid­ed in sec­tion “Infor­ma­tion Required by Law.” The right to demand restric­tion of pro­cess­ing applies in the fol­low­ing cas­es:

  • In the event that you should dis­pute the cor­rect­ness of your data archived by us, we will usu­al­ly need some time to ver­i­fy this claim. Dur­ing the time that this inves­ti­ga­tion is ongo­ing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data.
  • If the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data was/is con­duct­ed in an unlaw­ful man­ner, you have the option to demand the restric­tion of the pro­cess­ing of your data in lieu of demand­ing the erad­i­ca­tion of this data.

  • If you have raised an objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each oth­er. As long as it has not been deter­mined whose inter­ests pre­vail, you have the right to demand a restric­tion of the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data.
  • If you have restrict­ed the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data, these data – with the excep­tion of their archiv­ing – may be processed only sub­ject to your con­sent or to claim, exer­cise or defend legal enti­tle­ments or to pro­tect the rights of oth­er nat­ur­al per­sons or legal enti­ties or for impor­tant pub­lic inter­est rea­sons cit­ed by the Euro­pean Union or a mem­ber state of the EU.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we auto­mat­i­cal­ly process on the basis of your con­sent or in order to ful­fil a con­tract be hand­ed over to you or a third par­ty in a com­mon­ly used, machine read­able for­mat. If you should demand the direct trans­fer of the data to anoth­er con­troller, this will be done only if it is tech­ni­cal­ly fea­si­ble.

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of vio­la­tions of the GDPR, data sub­jects are enti­tled to log a com­plaint with a super­vi­so­ry agency, in par­tic­u­lar in the mem­ber state where they usu­al­ly main­tain their domi­cile, place of work or at the place where the alleged vio­la­tion occurred. The right to log a com­plaint is in effect regard­less of any oth­er admin­is­tra­tive or court pro­ceed­ings avail­able as legal recours­es.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For secu­ri­ty rea­sons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­sion of con­fi­den­tial con­tent, such as pur­chase orders or inquiries you sub­mit to us as the web­site oper­a­tor, this web­site uses either an SSL or a TLS encryp­tion pro­gram. You can rec­og­nize an encrypt­ed con­nec­tion by check­ing whether the address line of the brows­er switch­es from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appear­ance of the lock icon in the brows­er line.

Responsibility for links

Our offer con­tains links to exter­nal web­sites of third par­ties, on whose con­tents we have no influ­ence. There­fore we can­not assume any lia­bil­i­ty for these exter­nal con­tents. The respec­tive provider or oper­a­tor of the sites is always respon­si­ble for the con­tents of the linked sites. The linked pages were checked for pos­si­ble legal vio­la­tions at the time of link­ing. Ille­gal con­tents were not iden­ti­fied at the time of link­ing. How­ev­er, a per­ma­nent con­trol of the con­tents of the linked pages is not rea­son­able with­out con­crete evi­dence of a vio­la­tion of the law. If we become aware of any infringe­ments, we will remove such links imme­di­ate­ly.


The con­tents and works on these pages cre­at­ed by the site oper­a­tors are sub­ject to Ger­man copy­right law. The repro­duc­tion, edit­ing, dis­tri­b­u­tion and any kind of use out­side the lim­its of copy­right law require the writ­ten con­sent of the respec­tive author or cre­ator. Down­loads and copies of these pages are only per­mit­ted for pri­vate, non-com­mer­cial use. Inso­far as the con­tent on this site was not cre­at­ed by the oper­a­tor, the copy­rights of third par­ties are observed. In par­tic­u­lar, third-par­ty con­tent is iden­ti­fied as such. Should you nev­er­the­less become aware of a copy­right infringe­ment, please inform us accord­ing­ly. If we become aware of any infringe­ments, we will remove such con­tents imme­di­ate­ly.

Opposition to advertising e-mails

We here­by object to the use of con­tact data pub­lished with­in the scope of the imprint oblig­a­tion to send adver­tis­ing and infor­ma­tion mate­r­i­al not express­ly request­ed. The oper­a­tors of this web­site express­ly reserve the right to take legal action in the event that unso­licit­ed adver­tis­ing infor­ma­tion is sent, for exam­ple by spam e-mails.

Automated decision making

Cur­rent­ly we do not use auto­mat­ic deci­sion mak­ing or pro­fil­ing.

Custom Services

Job Applications

We offer web­site vis­i­tors the oppor­tu­ni­ty to sub­mit job appli­ca­tions to us (e.g. via e-mail, via postal ser­vices on by sub­mit­ting the online job appli­ca­tion form). Below, we will brief you on the scope, pur­pose and use of the per­son­al data col­lect­ed from you in con­junc­tion with the appli­ca­tion process. We assure you that the col­lec­tion, pro­cess­ing and use of your data will occur in com­pli­ance with the applic­a­ble data pri­va­cy rights and all oth­er statu­to­ry pro­vi­sions and that your data will always be treat­ed as strict­ly con­fi­den­tial.

Scope and purpose of the collection of data

If you sub­mit a job appli­ca­tion to us, we will process any affil­i­at­ed per­son­al data (e.g. con­tact and com­mu­ni­ca­tions data, appli­ca­tion doc­u­ments, notes tak­en dur­ing job inter­views, etc.), if they are required to make a deci­sion con­cern­ing the estab­lish­ment or an employ­ment rela­tion­ship. The legal grounds for the afore­men­tioned are § 26 New GDPR accord­ing to Ger­man Law (Nego­ti­a­tion of an Employ­ment Rela­tion­ship), Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR (Gen­er­al Con­tract Nego­ti­a­tions) and – pro­vid­ed you have giv­en us your con­sent – Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. You may revoke any con­sent giv­en at any time. With­in our com­pa­ny, your per­son­al data will only be shared with indi­vid­u­als who are involved in the pro­cess­ing of your job appli­ca­tion.

If your job appli­ca­tion should result in your recruit­ment, the data you have sub­mit­ted will be archived on the grounds of § 26 New GDPR and Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR for the pur­pose of imple­ment­ing the employ­ment rela­tion­ship in our data pro­cess­ing sys­tem.

Data Archiving Period

If we are unable to make you a job offer or you reject a job offer or with­draw your appli­ca­tion, we reserve the right to retain the data you have sub­mit­ted on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) for up to 6 months from the end of the appli­ca­tion pro­ce­dure (rejec­tion or with­draw­al of the appli­ca­tion). After­wards the data will be delet­ed, and the phys­i­cal appli­ca­tion doc­u­ments will be destroyed. The stor­age serves in par­tic­u­lar as evi­dence in the event of a legal dis­pute. If it is evi­dent that the data will be required after the expiry of the 6-month peri­od (e.g. due to an impend­ing or pend­ing legal dis­pute), dele­tion will only take place when the pur­pose for fur­ther stor­age no longer applies.

Longer stor­age may also take place if you have giv­en your agree­ment (Arti­cle 6 (1) (a) GDPR) or if statu­to­ry data reten­tion require­ments pre­clude the dele­tion.

Updating and modification

From time to time, the pri­va­cy pol­i­cy must be adapt­ed to the actu­al cir­cum­stances and the legal sit­u­a­tion. Please check the pri­va­cy pol­i­cy before you use our offer to be up to date with pos­si­ble changes or updates.
