Privacy Policy Statement

We are pleased that you have found your way to our website and are interested in our company. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and process it on the basis of the applicable legal basis and regulations for the protection of personal data, which result, among other things, from the applicable country-specific implementation laws of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).


Data collection / personal data

For the pure visit of our website we do not need any personal and personal data from you. Nevertheless, due to the technical necessity of calling up web pages, your Internet browser sends data to our web server, some of which is also recorded for technical reasons (server logs).


This data typically includes the following information:

  • Web browser used including browser version and operating system used.
  • Type of device used (desktop computer / smartphone / tablet / etc.)
  • Size and color of your monitor / display
  • Information about the last website you opened from which you are visiting us
  • Information about the websites you visit, the date and time of the visit and the time spent on each page
  • Name of the requested files, transfer protocols, amount of data transferred
  • Name of your Internet service provider
  • The IP address assigned to you by your Internet service provider


In accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. GDPR, we store this data for reasons of technical security, to prevent cyber attacks on our servers and to protect your personal data and the data of other visitors. By shortening the IP addresses after a maximum of seven calendar days, this data is then automatically anonymized by our backend and stored indefinitely for statistical analysis. A personal reference based on this data can then no longer be established.


Further data collection

In addition, you have the option of providing us with personal data both via our website and via other communication channels. In some cases, these data collections are also required by law and the legal retention obligations are clearly defined. In the following articles, we would like to inform you about the use of your data and the legal basis.

We will only pass on your data to third parties within the framework of the statutory provisions or with your corresponding consent, unless we are obliged to do so due to mandatory statutory provisions.

Legal basis Art. 6 para. 1 lit. ff GDPR

We use cookies on our website at Cookies are text files with a low data volume that are generated when you visit our website and stored locally on your terminal device. We need these cookies to improve the usability of our website, to cache your preferences, such as your language selection, and to enhance the security of our website. Cookies are automatically generated by our server when you visit our website and are saved locally on your data storage by your browser. Your browser can then access them and change their content as needed.

We mainly use so-called session cookies on our website, which are usually automatically deleted by your browser after your visit as soon as their validity period - usually six months - has expired. However, you can also delete these cookies yourself at any time. This can be done either via your browser's security settings or manually by deleting these files from the corresponding folders in your file system.

Internet browsers are usually set to automatically accept cookies after installation. Of course, you can change this default setting at any time, restrict the use of cookies or switch them off completely.

Please note, however, that after deleting our cookies or refusing their use, our websites can no longer be visited completely and only with limited user-friendliness.


User profiles / web tracking procedures

We use only local analysis tools for the greatest possible protection of your personal data in accordance with (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU GDPR). Your data will not be exchanged with external service providers for statistical analysis. Currently, we use the on-premise solution of Matomo installed locally on our web server with anonymized IP address (1 bit anonymization). You can deactivate this tracking manually at any time using the following option or generally set your browser to avoid automatic tracking ("Do Not Track" option).

In order to protect your personal data, we have deliberately refrained from using additional, external, mostly cloud-based tracking tools such as those offered by Google Ireland Limited or other well-known providers. A data transfer of your personal data outside our company or even outside the EU does not take place.

Social network plug-ins

In order to protect your personal data as best as possible, we completely refrain from using any form of social network plug-ins on our website. There is no exchange of your data with external service providers for statistical analysis. If you would like to follow our accounts on social media, you will find simple links to these accounts at the bottom of all our pages. After clicking on these links, our user profile will open directly in the respective network and you can follow it via your own account in the same network. Of course, we are happy about any contact and networking with you outside of our own website in the social networks. However, the terms of use and privacy policies of the operators apply to the use of these networks.


Storage period and criteria for determining the duration

We, PrintersLounge, will store your personal data without your individual consent only for the period of time necessary to achieve the respective processing purpose or as required by legal retention periods. Your personal data will only be disclosed to third parties if required by law or within the scope of the respective processing purpose to fulfill your inquiry or order. If an exchange of data should be necessary within the scope of these requirements, this exchange will always be carried out in compliance with the legal requirements and obligations with the highest possible security and in compliance with the principle of data economy and data avoidance only with the data actually required for the processing process.


Examples of unavoidable data transfer to third parties:

  • Government authorities and agencies (e.g., tax office).
  • External data protection officer (generally only with contractually secured data protection clause)
  • External quality management representative (in principle only with contractually secured data protection clause)
  • External environmental management representative (generally only with contractually secured confidentiality clause)
  • Companies that carry out credit checks
  • Banks, savings banks and credit institutions
  • Shipping service providers, suppliers, payment services
  • Other business units in the corporate group
  • Service providers in the context of order processing (in principle only with contractually secured data privacy clause)
  • Internal and external departments


Secure transmission of your data

We, PrintersLounge, take the security of your personal data very seriously and therefore only use security mechanisms of the highest quality when operating our web and mail servers. Our security measures are developed by security experts according to the current state of the art, reviewed at regular intervals and adapted to new standards and trends.

The exchange of your personal data to and from our web server as well as to and from our mail servers is encrypted to protect against data loss and data theft. For our web and mail server, we have chosen a TLS certificate from the provider Thawte (DigiCert Inc.) with PKCS #1 SHA-256 and RSA encryption algorithm at domain level, which can be classified as extremely secure. You can check this certificate and its validity at any time via your web browser. An automatic check is performed by most web browsers every time you visit a page and successful encryption is usually indicated by a green closed padlock in the URL bar. We use this TLS encryption both in the frontend (visitor display) and in the backend (administration interface) of our web server to also prevent data loss and data theft during the administration and content maintenance of our website.

Alternatively, you naturally have the option at any time to forego data exchange with us in digital form and choose analog communication channels (e.g. postal delivery of data and information).


Links to other providers

Where there are links to other companies' websites, email addresses or telephone numbers on our website, these are identified as such. You can also check each link before clicking it by moving your mouse pointer (desktop computer) or finger or mobile application over the link or by holding the link longer than clicking it (hovering behavior).

We would like to point out that we, PrintersLounge, have no influence on the content of external linked websites and cannot accept any liability for such content. The respective provider or operator is responsible for the content and data security of these linked sites. All external sites linked to our website were checked and evaluated by us for possible legal violations, illegal content and data security within the scope of our possibilities before linking. Only after a positive evaluation were these links included on our pages. However, it is not reasonable for us to constantly check the content of the linked pages. If we become aware of any legal or data protection violations, such external links will be removed immediately. If we become aware of any legal violations, please inform us accordingly at


Rights concerned

In accordance with the statutory provisions, you have the right to free information about the use and content of the personal data we and you have stored about you. In addition, you have the right to rectification, restriction of data collection and processing, and deletion of your data, provided that this does not conflict with any statutory retention periods.

Furthermore, according to the current legal situation, you have the right to a general objection to data processing, the right to data portability or to file a complaint with the competent supervisory authority for data protection.

Of course, once you have exercised this right, you can revoke any consent you have given us to process your data at any time in the future without giving any reasons.

If we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you may object to this processing for personal reasons at any time. Unless there are demonstrably compelling grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, the processing is required by law, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, we will no longer process your data for the future after receipt of the objection and completion of the examination of the legal claim.

Our data protection officer is available at at any time to answer any questions you may have about data protection, data collection and data processing at PrintersLounge.
