Data protection


DreBo Werkzeugfabrik GmbH (“we” or “us”) is obligated to protect and respect your privacy.

This Privacy Statement lays the foundation for the processing of all personal data that we collect from you or that you share with us. Please read the following policy carefully so you can see how we handle your personal data and what we use it for.

For the purposes of applicable data privacy laws and the forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)(Regulation (EU) 2016/679), the data controller is DreBo Werkzeugfabrik GmbH, registered at the address Ulrichstraße 22, 88361 Altshausen, Germany.



We will gather and process the following data from you:


  • Information that you provide to us. This refers to information that you provide to us once you interact with us by email or phone, on social media networks, or by other means. This also includes information that you provide when you submit data to us using the form on our website. The information that you provide to us may include, among other things, your name, your address, email address or telephone number, the description of your person and photos. We will only request the information that is necessary for the fulfillment of the corresponding purpose.


By submitting this data, you declare your consent to our collection and processing of this data in order to deliver the information, products and services that you have ordered from us. In this case, the legal basis for this processing is Article 6(1)(a) GDPR. You are entitled to withdraw your consent at any time. It may also occur that we use this data to fulfill our obligations under agreements that we have concluded with you. In this case, the legal basis is found in Article 6(1)(b) GDPR. We will only store your personal data as long as we need it to provide the information, services, or offers you have requested from us or to fulfill our contractual obligations.


  • Information that we collect about you. Every time you visit our website, we will automatically collect the following information:
    • Technical information, e.g., regarding the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, your browser type and version, time zone setting, browser plugin types and versions, device types, operating system, date and time of consent as well as the platform used;
    • Information about your visit, such as the complete uniform resource locator (URL), the clickstream to, through, and from our website (including date and time), page response times, download errors, duration of the visits to specific pages, interactions on pages (e.g., scrolling, clicks, and mouse movements), and the methods used when surfing the website.


We store this information exclusively for the purpose of administering our website and for internal functions, e.g., for troubleshooting, data analysis, test runs, research, statistical evaluations and data collection as well as monitoring for criminal activity. We reserve the right to examine these log files and data retroactively if there is sufficient suspicion of criminal activity on the basis of concrete indications. If personal data is processed, this occurs for the protection of our legitimate interest in monitoring for criminal activity, particularly in connection with our website. The legal basis for this is found in Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.


  • Information we receive from other sources. This refers to information that we receive about you when you use one of the other websites we operate or other services we provide. We work closely with third parties (such as business partners, subcontractors for technical services, advertising networks, providers of analytical services, information research providers, and credit reporting agencies). We will inform you when we receive information about you from these sources and what purpose we want to use this information for, as well as the respective legal basis.



Our website uses cookies to differentiate you from other website users. With this data, we are able to serve you with the benefit of our experience when you surf our website and can improve our site.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” Other cookies remain on your device until you delete them. These cookies make it possible for us to recognize your browser on your next visit.

Insofar as personal data is processed in this regard, we conduct this processing on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving our website for users. To this end, we only process pseudonymized data once you visit our website. The legal basis for this processing is found in Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. You can erase the cookies from your device at any time, and as soon as the cookies are erased we are no longer able to process any information contained in these cookies.

You can also adjust your browser settings so that you are informed about cookie placement or only allow coolies on an individual basis, deny the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general, or activate the function that automatically erases cookies when you close your browser session. You may not be able to use the full functionality of this website if cookies are deactivated.


This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, “Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to support us in analyzing your use of our website. The information about your use of this website generated by these cookies is transferred to a Google server in the US. We use Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp ()” so that the IP addresses transferred to Google are only processed in short form to exclude the possibility that this data could be directly associated with you. Google will use this data for the evaluation of your use of the website, to create reports on website activity for our website and to provide further services in connection with the website and Internet use. Google is allowed to transfer this data to third parties as well, insofar as this is required by law or third parties process this data on Google's behalf. Google will not assign your IP address to any other Google data. You can also prevent the installation of Google Analytics cookies through the corresponding setting in your browser, whereas we would like to notify you that—if you do so—you may not be able to use the full range of functions on our website. Additionally, you can object to future data collection and data storage for Google Analytics at any time using Google’s browser plugin function ( For more information about Google Analytics, see: ( When you visit our website using a mobile device, you can deactivate Google Analytics by clicking the button: (

Insofar as personal data is processed in this regard, we conduct this processing within the scope of our legitimate interest in our own marketing purposes. We protect your interests by anonymizing your IP address during data collection so that you cannot be identified. The legal basis for this processing is found in Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.


Objection to data collection

You can prevent the collection of your data through Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. This will place an opt-out cookie on your device that will prevent the collection of your data during future visits to this website: Deactivate Google Analytics.


Facebook Pixel

Our website uses the visitor activity pixel from Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”).

In this way, site visitor behavior can be tracked once visitors have been forwarded to the provider's website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This makes it possible to measure the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market-research purposes and to optimize future advertising measures.

The data gathered here remains anonymous to us as operators of this website; we are not able to draw any conclusions concerning users’ identities. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook so that associating it with the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in keeping with the Facebook Data Policy. This enables Facebook to place ads on Facebook pages as well as outside of the Facebook platform. As a site operator, we are unable to influence this use of the data.

Use of Facebook Pixel occurs on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has legitimate interest in effective advertising measures, including social media.

Further statements regarding the protection of your privacy can be found in the Facebook Data Policy:

Additionally, you can deactivate the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” in the section Facebook Ad Settings at To do so, you must be registered on Facebook.

If you do not have a Facebook account, you can deactivate behavioral advertising from Facebook using the website of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance:



All personal information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the Internet is not entirely secure. Even though we do our best to protect your personal data, we can give no guarantee for the security of your data that is transmitted to our website; every transmission occurs at your own risk. As soon as we receive your information, we will implement strict procedures and security functions in order to prevent unauthorized access as far as possible.



We are permitted to transfer your data when this is required by law or when we commission third parties to process your data under our supervision; however, this occurs under strict observance of applicable laws and regulations. In this regard, we are also permitted to process your data through employees who may operate from outside of the European Economic Area and who work for us, our subsidiaries, or for one of our suppliers.



We will retain your personal data as long as this is necessary for the fulfillment of the purposes stated in this Privacy Policy, except in cases where a longer retention period is required or permissible by applicable law.

As a data subject, you are entitled to assert the rights of the data subject against us at any time. In particular, you have the following rights:

  • You have the right to receive information regardless of whether—and if so, to what extent—we process your personal data or not.
  • Concerning the processing of personal data that concerns you, you have the right to access to information, in particular to the following information: about stored data that concerns you, about the intended purpose(s) of processing, the data categories, the recipients to whom we disclose data, as well as the duration of storage. You have the right to request the correction of your data without delay insofar as this data is incorrect or incomplete.
