We are pleased about your visit on the website of our company. Information protection and in particular data protection is of great importance to our management. In principle, you can use this website without providing any personal data. Should you disclose data to us in connection with the processing described below, we will treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations of the European Union and the Federal Republic of Germany as well as this data protection declaration.
As the data controller, HORNA GmbH Verpackungen has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the complete protection of personal data processed via this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you as the person concerned are free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or mail.
HORNA GmbH Verpackungen's data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator when the basic data protection regulation (GDPR) was issued. The detailed definitions can be found in Art. 4 GDPR. Essentially, these are the following terms, described here in simplified form:
a) Personal data:
This is all information available to us as a responsible person to determine you as a natural person. (e.g. name, address, e-mail, telephone number, IP address etc.)
b) Person concerned:
This is you as a natural person, if we have identified you or can identify you.
Processing is any collection, storage, further processing, forwarding, archiving and deletion of data. It is irrelevant whether the process is carried out automatically with the aid of IT systems or whether it is carried out manually (e.g. by letter).
d) Restriction of processing:
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of your data, which consists in using these data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to you. In particular, to analyse or predict aspects relating to your job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, behaviour, whereabouts or change of location.
This is a process to identify your personal data. In the following, only this identifier will be used and without the original key or a "reference database" this pseudonym cannot be resolved (e.g. allocation of a customer number).
g) Responsible Person:
The person responsible or responsible for processing is HORNA GmbH Verpackungen with whom you have a contractual relationship. It is crucial that we can decide independently on the processing methods and means.
h) Contract processor:
A processor is a company that has been commissioned by HORNA GmbH Verpackungen to assist you in the collection, processing, storage, forwarding or deletion of your data. Usually these are IT service providers, but also waste disposal companies that are commissioned, for example, with the destruction of documents.
Consent is any expression of will given by you for a specific individual case. You will be fully informed about what you are consenting to.

6. Processing operations
In this section we will describe the data processing that is connected with our internet offer or that applies to a general business relationship between you and our company.
The following legal bases serve us for the processing of your data.
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.
If the processing of your data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations required for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same shall apply to such processing operations which are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes the processing of personal data necessary, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company was injured and his name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of you outweigh the processing. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator.

Onlineshop on our website
Description, purpose and legal basis
You have the possibility to register for our online store on our website by entering your personal data. Which personal data will be transmitted to us in the process is determined by the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by you will be collected and stored exclusively for internal use by us and for the purpose of contract processing. The data processing is thus carried out on the legal basis Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the fulfilment of the contract.
We may pass on your personal data to one or more data processors, for example a parcel service provider such as UPS, who will use your data in particular for the execution of the contract.
When you register in our online store, your IP address assigned by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), the date and time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data is carried out against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable the investigation of criminal offences. To this extent, the storage of this data is necessary for our security. As a matter of principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties, unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.
If you provide voluntary personal data during registration, this data is used by us to offer you content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. The data processing is then carried out with your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You have the possibility to change the personal data you have provided us with at any time or to have it completely deleted from our database.
In order to optimize our online offer for you, we have a legitimate interest in passing on your personal data to third parties if necessary. This takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of your commercial and tax law requirements.
On request, we will be pleased to inform you which personal data we have stored about you. Furthermore, we will correct or delete your personal data at your request or notice, provided that no statutory retention periods conflict with your request. You are welcome to contact our employees for this purpose.
We store your personal data for as long as it is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. The purpose is fulfilled as soon as the contract has been completely processed. Even after the contract has been completely processed, it may be necessary to store your personal data. This is then the case to comply with contractual or legal obligations. We are obliged by commercial and tax law to store your address, payment and order data for a period of 10 years.
You have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interest. For this purpose, you can contact us by e-mail or by any other means of contact. Please note, however, that the restriction or deletion of your personal data may be contrary to contractual or legal retention periods.
For payment processing we pass your data to the appropriate payment service provider. These are listed below:
- PayPal (Europe S.à.r.l. & Cie, S.C.A.
In order to be able to place orders via our online store, you have the possibility to create a password protected user account. This account contains an overview of your transacted orders as well as active order processes. If you leave the online store, you will be logged out automatically.
Please make sure that you have a sufficiently secure password, as we cannot assume liability for password misuse unless we have caused it ourselves.
If you do not wish to create an account, you can always place an order as a guest.
If you place an order, the personal data required for this purpose will be processed. These are usually surname, first name, address, payment data and e-mail address. This data is also collected if you only place an order as a guest, as it is necessary for the processing of the contract. Likewise these are passed on to third service providers for delivery or order processing. After contract processing, your personal data will be deleted if they are no longer required or if a contractual or legal retention period prevents deletion.
Third party modules / analysis tools / advertising
(1) Google Maps
On our website we use Google Maps, a map service of Google Ireland Limited to display an interactive map. The provider of the service is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
To use the functions of Google Maps it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We have no influence on this data transfer at this point.
The integration of Google Maps pursues the goals of an appealing presentation of our online offers as well as an easy findability of the places indicated by us on the website. This data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. As soon as you activate the map service by clicking, you give us your consent.
We have integrated components of the video platform YouTube on this website to enable you to access our offer. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips and other users to view, rate and comment on them. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television broadcasts as well as music videos, trailers or videos created by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.
YouTube is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Ireland Limited is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by us and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on your PC is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the respective YouTube component from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/intl/en/about/. In the course of this technical process, YouTube and Google are informed which specific subpage of our website you are visiting.
If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific page of our website you are visiting by calling up a subpage containing a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to your respective YouTube account.
YouTube and Google receive information via the YouTube component that you have visited our website if you are logged in to YouTube at the same time when you call up our website; this takes place regardless of whether you click on a YouTube video or not. If you do not want this information to be sent to YouTube and Google, you can prevent it from being sent by logging out of your YouTube account before you visit our website.
b) Contact / Inquiries
In the following we describe the possibilities of contacting the companies and employees of our company.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form including the contact data you provided there will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form thus takes place in the first step on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal e-mail notification to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. In further correspondence, there may be a change of legality (e.g. if you request an offer), then your data will be processed in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit b GDPR.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected by this.
E-Mail / Phone inquiry
If you send us inquiries by e-mail or telephone, your data from the e-mail or conversation, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of the data provided in the e-mail or telephone conversation is therefore based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out up to the point of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. In further correspondence, there may be a change in legality (e.g. if it is business correspondence), in which case your data will be processed in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR.
The data provided by you in the mail or from the telephone conversation will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage or the purpose for which the data was stored ceases to apply (e.g. after your inquiry has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected by this.
c) Data processing for the fulfilment of contracts
If you have entered into a business relationship with our company, e.g. if you have placed an order with us, the data processing will be carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. All data necessary to initiate, fulfill or complete this order, such as contact data, object data, service providers involved, photo documentation, plans, orders for goods, etc., may be collected and processed by us without separate consent.
Should it be necessary to call in a subcontractor (e.g. other IT service providers, special software suppliers) to fulfill the contract with you, we may also pass on your data to this subcontractor. We guarantee that we have committed our subcontractors to the same strict data protection requirements that you can expect from us.
The data related to orders are subject to different retention periods. For example, general business letters must be proven for 6 years and tax law documents for 10 years. We will only pass on your data within our company to the extent necessary, if this is justified by the subject of the order.
7. Protection / encryption
This site uses SSL or 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. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
As a responsible company, we avoid automatic decision making or profiling.
9. Actuality / status
This data protection declaration has the current status of March 2022 and is subject to constant updating and adaptation to new legal requirements and technical developments.
