Privacy Policy

1. General information on data processing

1.1 Scope of the processing of personal data

Thank you for your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for Collomix GmbH. The following information provides a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit our website or use the services of our company.

"Personal data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject"), such as a data subject's name, address, email address, telephone number or user behavior.

The processing of personal data is always in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations that are applicable to us. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

Your data is collected on the one hand when you provide it to us. This could be, for example, data that you enter in a contact form. Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g., internet browser, operating system or time of page view). The collection of this data takes place automatically as soon as you access our website.

1.2 Purpose of the processing

Certain data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyze your user behavior. If we use contracted service providers for individual features of our website or wish to use your data for advertising purposes, we will inform you in detail about the respective processes below. In doing so, we will also state the defined criteria for the data storage period

1.3 Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject to process their personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

1.4 Your rights

  • Right to information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing

  • Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right under Article 77 GDPR to appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, workplace or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR. The supervisory authority to which the appeal has been submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78 GDPR

8. Processing of your data when creating a customer account or when participating in the "My Collomix" program

8.1 What data is processed?

If you want to create a customer account or participate in the "My Collomix" program, Collomix GmbH requires your full name and address data (basic data). Without providing your basic data, we cannot create your customer account with full functionality. In addition, you can voluntarily provide further data (voluntary data).

8.2 Purpose of the processing

Collomix GmbH processes the basic data and any voluntary information for your registration and for the processing of the "My Collomix" program. The purpose of the processing is to be able to provide information and offers that are individually tailored to the customer and to provide comprehensive personalized support.

8.3 Legal basis

The legal basis for the processing described above is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. GDPR

8.4 Use and disclosure of personal data

We process the personal data collected from you exclusively for the creation of your customer account or for the purpose of the "My Collomix" program. We do not disclose your personal data to third parties unless you have consented to such disclosure of your data or we are obliged to disclose data due to statutory provisions and/or official or court orders.

In the provision of our services, we are supported by contract processors as IT service providers and within the scope of hosting services. These entities have their company headquarters in Germany. If other processors are commissioned with a maintenance activity, these processors may gain access to your data in the course of their work. In such cases, Collomix GmbH contractually obligates the processors to comply with the applicable data protection provisions, as well as the provisions on data protection and confidentiality under the contract. Under no circumstances will Collomix GmbH disclose your personal data to third parties without authorization for advertising, marketing or other purposes.

8.5 Processing of your data for advertising purposes

9. Analysis tools and advertising

The use of analytics to evaluate the use of one's own website is now standard practice. Website operators want to know, for example, how many users visit their site, what information is most in demand, how users found the website. In this way, the offers can be designed in a user-friendly way and the turnover of the companies can be increased. The term "web analytics" is commonly used, but terms such as "web tracking" or "data traffic analysis" are also used regularly. These terms describe any collection of access data on websites and the evaluation of visitors' behavior. The analysis tools require the identification of individual visitors in order to evaluate individual behavior. Personal identification, on the other hand, is generally not required, as only statistical data is compiled. It is therefore customary, in part due to the work of the data protection supervisory authorities, that the user's IP address is only collected in abbreviated form and is directly shortened by the last octet, so that the previously personal user data is directly anonymized and no identification of individual users is possible. The supervisory authorities have established various requirements for the use of web analytics under the data protection legislation. These requirements can be transferred to the GDPR, but must be expanded to include various requirements. In the following, descriptions of a data protection declaration are presented as a possible supplement to the basic declaration presented above for services that are frequently used in practice and the further requirements are described.

9.1 Use of Retail Connect

The tracking pixel is activated at the request of the trading partner; it can also be deactivated.

If the tracking pixel is activated and if an order is actually triggered (last step of the ordering process in the store), data about the order is transmitted. If no order is triggered, no data is transmitted. The transmitted data includes personal data within the meaning of the GDPR.

If a customer (data subject within the meaning of the GDPR) is redirected directly to the store page of a dealer (the data controller within the meaning of the GDPR) via the detail page of a product in the product catalog of the Collomix website, a transaction number is transferred to the dealer.

This transaction number is transmitted to the supplier, Collomix, in the event of an actually triggered order. The technical transmission path is via the retail Connect interface provided by nexMart GmbH & Co. KG, which serves as a commissioned contract data processor pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR for the execution of this process. The following data is transmitted.

  • Transaction number
  • Item number or GTIN of the ordered items
  • Order quantity per item (if the dealer has enabled this)
  • Total order value (if the dealer has activated this)

The transaction number establishes the link between the retrieval of item information in the Collomix catalog and the actual order placed with the dealer. It allows the supplier (Collomix) to determine the share of purchases resulting from the dealer link within the total order volume, to identify popular and neglected product categories in this type of order; and thus to assess the profitability of this software licensed by nexMart GmbH & Co. KG.

Further personal data of the customer, in particular their name and address, will not be transmitted to Collomix.

9.2 Use of Google Analytics

a) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

b) The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.

c) You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in that is available via the following link:

d) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This means that IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, which means that personal references can be ruled out. Insofar as the data collected about you is related to a person, this is therefore immediately ignored and the personal data is thus immediately deleted.

(e) We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics thus obtained enable us to improve our website and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has subjected itself to the requirements of the EU-US Privacy Shield: legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art.6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.

9.3 Use of Facebook Remarketing Function

a) This website uses the "Custom Audiences" remarketing function from Facebook Inc ("Facebook"). This allows users of the website to be shown interest-based advertisements ("Facebook Ads") when visiting the Facebook social network or other websites that also use this tool. In this way, we pursue our interest in showing you advertising that is of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting for you.

b) Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Facebook server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Facebook through the use of this tool and therefore inform you about this to the best of knowledge: Through the integration of Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding web page of our website or clicked on an ad from us. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will learn and store your IP address and other identifying features.

c) The "Facebook Custom Audiences" function can be disabled [here and] by logged-in users atöglich.

d) The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR. For more information on data processing by Facebook, please visit

9.4 Use of Matomo (formerly Piwik)

We use a locally installed version of Matomo. You can block this by using the appropriate tools if you wish to do so. Our Matomo installation stores your IP address anonymously and respects DoNotTrack. It does not share any data with third parties.

We use the analysis tool Matomo from InnoCraft Ltd. (150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand; "Matomo") on our website.

The corresponding data processing serves the purpose of analyzing the website and its visitors. Cookies may be used for this purpose, which enable recognition of the user's internet browser. In the process, the following information may be collected, among other data: IP address, information about the browser you are using and about the device (device) you are using, files you have clicked on or downloaded, clicks on links to third-party websites, referrer URL (website from which you accessed our website), URL of our website, number of visits, time of your first visit, date and time of visit, time zone, location data. From this data, usage profiles can be created under a pseudonym. The data collected using Matomo technologies will not be used to personally identify the visitor to this website without the separately granted consent of the data subject and will not be merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym.
