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.
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). Collecting this data occurs 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 server query
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.
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.

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.
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.
This website uses the function “IP anonymization“. 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 anonymizes it. Only in exceptional cases is your full IP address 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.
