2. General information and statutory information
The operator of this site takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection requirements and this data protection statement.
When you use this web site, a range of personal data is collected. Personal data are data that can be personally identified with you. This data protection statement explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and to what purpose this happens.
We point out that the transmission of data in the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can exhibit security holes. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.
Information on the data controller
The data controller for processing data on this web site is:
Auwärter - Anhänger und Aufbauten GmbH & Co. KG
Telefon: +49 (0)9234 9914-0
The data controller is the natural or legal person who alone or together with others decides on the purpose and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses and similar).
Withdrawal of consent to data processing
Many data processing processes are only possible with your explicit consent. You can withdraw consent already given at any time. To do so, an informal advice by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing up to withdrawal of consent is unaffected.
The right to withdraw consent to collecting data in particular cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
If data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right at any time based on reasons arising from your particular situation to submit an objection to the processing of your personal data. This also applies to profiling based on these regulations. The respective lawful basis on which the processing is based can be found in this data protection statement. When you submit an objection, we will no longer process the affected personal data unless we can supply compelling reasons for the processing worthy of protection that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the enforcement, exercise or defense of legal claims (objection in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR).
If your personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of such marketing. This also applies to profiling, to the extent that it is connected to direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will then no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 2 GDPR).
Right to complain to the responsible regulating authority
In cases of a breach of the GDPR, the affected person has the right to complain to the regulating authority, in particular in the EU member state of their usual residence, their workplace or the location of the alleged breach. The right to complain is unaffected by administrative or judicial remedies elsewhere.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we automatically process on the basis of your consent or to fulfill a contract to be sent to yourself or to third parties in a commonly used, machine readable format. Where you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only occur if it is technically feasible.
SSL and TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can identify an encrypted connection where the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://”, and from the padlock symbol in your browser line.
When the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, restriction, erasure and rectification
Within the terms of the applicable legal regulations, you have the right at any time to receive information about your stored personal data free of charge, along with their source, recipients and the purpose of the data processing. You may also have the right to rectification, restriction or erasure of these data. For this and other questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address on the legal information page.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. For this you can contact us at any time at the address on the legal information page. The right to restrict processing applies in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of the personal data stored by us, we will generally require time to check this. You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted for the duration of the check.
- If your personal data has been processed unlawfully, you can request that the data processing is restricted instead of erasing the personal data.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need them for the exercise, defense or enforcement of legal claims, you have the right to request that the data processing is restricted instead of erasing the personal data.
- If you have objected in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR, a consideration must be made between your and our interests. Until it is determined whose interests will prevail, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – excluding their storage – may only be processed with your consent or for the enforcement, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of other natural or legal persons or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a member state.
Objection to marketing e-mails
The published contact information provided as part of the legal requirements on this web site must not be used for sending marketing and information material that has not been explicitly requested. The operators of this web site explicitly reserve the right to legal steps in the case of unrequested marketing material being received such as by spam e-mails.

This web site uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are saved on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the web site by you.

6. Plugins und Tools
YouTube with extended data protection
Our web site uses plugins from the YouTube web site. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
We use YouTube in the extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this has the effect that YouTube does not save any information about the visitors to our web site before they view the video. The transfer of data to YouTube partners is, however, not necessarily excluded as a result of the extended data protection mode. YouTube – independent of whether you view a video – establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network.
As soon as you start a YouTube video on our web site, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. In the process, the YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, after starting the video, YouTube saves various cookies on your end device. With the help of cookies, YouTube can receive information about visitors to our web site. This information is used among other things to record video statistics, to improve user friendliness and to prevent attempts to defraud. The cookies remain on your end device until you delete them.
It is possible that further data processing processes are initiated after the start of a YouTube video that we have no influence over.
The use of YouTube is in the interest of an appealing representation of our online offering. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
For further information about data protection at YouTube, see their data protection statement at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.
Google Web Fonts
This site uses the so-called Web Fonts provided by Google for the uniform presentation of fonts. The Google Fonts are installed locally. A connection to the Google servers is not established as a result.
This page uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information will generally only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there in exceptional circumstances. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission.
The use of Google Maps occurs in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offering and to make the locations mentioned on our web site easy to find. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
