This data protection declaration informs you in accordance with Art. 13 of the German Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator SIKORA AG.
SIKORA AG, Bruchweide 2, 28307 Bremen, Germany, is responsible for the data collection and processing described below.
SIKORA AG takes your privacy very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory provisions.
SIKORA AG collects data about accesses to the site, which are stored as “server log files”. The following data may be logged:
Visited website/subpages Time at the time of access Amount of data sent in bytes Source/reference from which you came to the page Browser used Operating system used End device used
This access data is not used for commercial purposes. The data collected is only used for statistical evaluations and to improve the website.
A permanent storage of the access data does not take place, except in the context of legal requirements. However, SIKORA AG reserves the right to check the server log files subsequently, should concrete indications point to an illegal use.
Data beyond the access data is only collected if the user of the website and/or customer provides voluntary information, for example in the context of the contact forms offered, or via the settings of his browser. For the use of our contact forms, such as also for sample/product registration, we require title, name, message or request, telephone or fax or e-mail address. You can provide further information, but you do not have to.
Information that you provide to us when contacting us will be used on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR or Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR in the interest of answering your inquiry as uncomplicated, timely and customer-oriented as possible. Your data will only be processed to answer your inquiry and will be deleted as soon as your inquiry has been conclusively answered. Your data will not be passed on to third parties.
You can order digital information (e.g. regular delivery of the customer magazine SIKORA EXTRA) via e-mail on our website. Please note that we need certain personal data (at least last name and e-mail address) for the registration.
You will receive a confirmation after ordering the newsletter. Only when you have reconfirmed this, you will receive the desired newsletter (double opt-in procedure).
The information will only be sent if you have given us your express consent to the data processing within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a) GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time. You can easily revoke your consent, for example, by clicking on the unsubscribe link in every cover letter.
In the course of registration, we store further data in addition to the personal data already mentioned, insofar as this is necessary to prove that you have ordered our information service. This may include the storage of the complete IP address at the time of the order. The corresponding data processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR in the interest of being able to account for the lawfulness of the information dispatch.

We use permanent cookies on our websites. The processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR and in the interest of optimizing or enabling user guidance and adapting the presentation of our website.
Recipients of personal data
We transfer your data to service providers who support us in the operation of our websites and the associated processes as part of order processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR. Our service providers are strictly bound by instructions to us and are contractually obligated accordingly.
In some cases, we also transfer personal data to third countries outside the EU in this context. In each case, we have ensured an appropriate level of data protection. However, there is a risk that authorities may access personal data for security and monitoring purposes without informing you or allowing you to appeal.
We use the web analysis tool “Google Analytics” to design our websites in line with requirements. Google Analytics creates usage profiles based on pseudonyms. For this purpose, permanent cookies are stored on your terminal device and read by us. In this way, we are able to recognize returning visitors and count them as such. Furthermore, the “Google Tag Manager” is used to integrate and manage the Google analytics and marketing services on our website.
In the context of Google Analytics, we are supported by Google Ireland Limited and Google LLC. (USA) as processors according to Art. 28 GDPR. The data processing may therefore also take place outside the EU or the EEA. With regard to Google LLC, an adequate level of data protection cannot be assumed due to processing in the USA. There is a risk that authorities may access the data for security and monitoring purposes without you being informed or having legal recourse. Please keep this in mind if you decide to give your consent to our use of Google Analytics.
The data processing is based on your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR or § 15 para. 3 p. 1 TMG, if you have given your consent via our banner. The transfer to a third country takes place on the basis of Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
You can object to the processing at any time. Please use one of the following options for this purpose:
- You can make the appropriate settings via our banner. To do this, use the blue button at the bottom of this page.
- You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the websites (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link.
- You can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. This will set an opt-out cookie that permanently prevents the future collection of your data when visiting these websites: Click here to object to the processing of your data by Google Analytics.
This site uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
If you use the Google Maps map, e.g. by clicking on our locations listed there, we do not collect any data from you. Through the use of Google Maps, however, information about your use (in particular the IP address of your computer) may be transmitted to a server of Google LLC in the USA and stored there. The processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies and your IP address is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR in the interest of making our website as optimal as possible for you. We have no influence on the further processing of data by Google LLC.
If you do not agree with the data processing by Google LLC, please refrain from using the map or deactivate the Java Script function in your browser to get only a limited view.

Due to the license terms, page-view tracking is performed by counting the number of visits to the SIKORA website for statistical purposes and transmitting them to MyFonts. MyFonts Counter is a service of MyFonts Inc, 500 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, MA 01801, USA.

Use of social media
On our website we use buttons with links to our presences on Twitter, Xing and LinkedIn. These buttons do not transmit any data to the aforementioned social networks. Only when you click on the buttons do you leave our website and are redirected to our websites on the social networks you clicked on. You are then no longer on our website, but on the websites of the clicked social networks. There, depending on your settings in your browser or in the social network, personal data about you will be collected. The conditions for this can be found in the privacy statements of the clicked, social networks, for which we can not assume any responsibility.
This website contains a plugin from YouTube, belonging to Google Inc. (YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA). If you use the functions of the plugin – for example, by watching a video – content from YouTube is downloaded. In this context, YouTube also receives your IP address, which is technically required to retrieve the content. In principle, we have no influence on the further processing by YouTube. However, when embedding the videos, we made sure to activate the extended data protection mode offered by YouTube.
For more information on the collection and use of your data by YouTube, please see the privacy notices there at https://www.youtube.com/.
The data will only be stored for as long as is necessary for the above-mentioned purposes or as required by law.
Rights of the user: information, correction and deletion
When processing your personal data, the GDPR grants you certain rights as a website user:
1. Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR):
You have the right to request confirmation as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed; if this is the case, you have the right to be informed about this personal data and to receive the information listed in detail in Art. 15 GDPR.
2. Right to rectification and erasure (Art. 16 and 17 GDPR):
You have the right to request without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you and, where applicable, the completion of incomplete personal data. You also have the right to request that personal data concerning you be deleted without undue delay if one of the reasons listed in detail in Art. 17 GDPR applies, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes pursued.
3. Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR):
You have the right to request the restriction of processing if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 GDPR applies, e.g. if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR or for the duration of any review as to whether our legitimate interests override your interests as a data subject.
4. Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR):
In certain cases, which are detailed in Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or to request the transfer of this data to a third party.
