Data protection statement

Your privacy is important to us. You should feel safe with us. Therefore we and our data protection officer ensure that the statutory data protection requirements are complied with, in particular, the European General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), effective since 25 May 2018, and the German Data Protection Act (BDSG-new). In the following, we would like to inform you for what purposes your data is collected and used and how you can exercise your rights. You can retrieve the Data Protection Statement at any time by clicking the “Data protection“ tab at the bottom of each page of our online-shop and print it out.

Our EDP systems are secured with technical and organisational measures against unauthorised persons accessing, changing or disseminating your data as well as against loss and destruction.

Purpose and legal basis of data processing

You can rest assured: We process your data in the central customer data administration of the German BAUHAUS companies (www.bauhaus.info/gesellschaften) only to fulfil your requests, fulfil and perform contracts (incl. the handling of payments), for our own advertising purposes and to meet our legal obligations. Processing occurs on the basis of the EU GDPR and German Data Protection Act.

Contact form

We use the data that you enter into the form “Your personal data” to answer your query, to implement pre-contractual measures and, should contracts be concluded, to perform the contracts.

Legal basis for data processing is Art 6 (1) b GDPR.

Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of retrieving the page). This data is collected automatically as soon as you open our website.

The data is stored in order to determine the winner at the end of the competition.

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files that your browser transmits to us automatically. This is:

  • browser type and browser version
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL
  • host name of accessing computer
  • time of the server query
  • IP address

This data is not combined with other data sources.


This data is collected for the following purposes:

  • for targeted information regarding innovations of offers/products
  • to update the customer list
  • to deal with your query
  • to process purchases
  • to perform contracts
  • to handle competitions

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) f GDPR which allows data to be processed in order to perform a contract or implement pre-contractual measures.

*IP address

The IP address is only used if this is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party, unless these are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require the protection of personal data (e.g. to pursue legal claims and to solve crimes). Processing occurs in accordance with Art 6 (1) f GDPR.


In order to facilitate the use of our website, we use “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that can be stored on your computer’s hard drive by your browser and are helpful when using our website. We use cookies in order to better understand how our website is used and to enable improved navigation. In addition to that, cookies allow us to recognize if you have visited our website before or if you are a new visitor. The cookies we use do not store your personal data. If you would not like to receive cookies, please set your internet browser accordingly. Legal basis is Art 6 (1) a GDPR.

Our website uses the following cookies:

  • Absolutely necessary cookies in order to ensure basic functions of the website.
  • CookieConsent: Serves to store the consent on the use of cookies.
  • Functional cookies in order to ensure the performance of the website
  • Performance cookies in order to improve the user experience.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as for example orders or queries that you send us as website operator, this page uses an SSL or TLS encryption. You will recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser’s address line changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

When the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Google Web Fonts

For a uniform display of fonts, this page uses so-called web fonts that are made available by Google. When opening a page, your browser will load the required web fonts in your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, the browser you are using must make contact with the Google servers. This way Google learns that our website was opened via your IP address. We use Google web fonts in the interest of a uniform and appealing display of our online offer. This constitutes a legitimate interest in terms of Art 6 (1) f GDPR.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.

More information on Google Web Fonts is available at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s data privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google“) on the legal basis of the overriding legitimate interest (analysis of website usage). For this we have concluded an agreement on contract data processing with Google.

When opening our website, a connection is created to the Google servers via software and data is transmitted to Google servers some of which are in the USA. In addition, Google Analytics uses cookies to store information about the website user and to analyse the usage of the website by website users.

This website uses the function “IP anonymisation”. With this Google first truncates your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus anonymises it. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.

According to statements by Google, Google will use the data collected to evaluate the usage of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide other services connected to the internet usage.

Also, Google might transmit this data to third parties, provided this is legally required or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

You will find details on how Google Analytics handles user data in Google’s data privacy policy.

Google Remarketing

We use the remarketing technology of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). With this technology, users who have already visited our internet sites and online services and shown interest in our offer are shown targeted advertisements on the sites of the Google partner network. Blending in the ads is done with the use of cookies. These are small text files that are stored on the user’s computer. With the help of the text files, user behaviour during a visit to the website can be analysed and subsequently used for targeted product recommendations and interest-based ads.

If you do not want to receive interest-based advertising, you can deactivate the use of cookies by Google for these purposes by going to the page https://adssettings.google.de/anonymous.
