1.1 Note on the responsible entity:

proLogistik GmbH
Portcullis 1
44369 Dortmund

We attach particular importance to the protection of your personal data. Your personal data will be processed in accordance with the data protection regulations, in particular the European Data Protection Regulation (EU DS-GVO) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG n. F.).

The following information provides an overview of the type, scope and purpose of the collection, processing and transmission of personal data and the security measures used to protect this data.

Personal data is individual information about personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person, such as your name, address, telephone number, date of birth, and e-mail and IP address.

1.2 Legal basis for the processing of personal data

  • Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU DS-GVO as the legal basis. You may object to this processing at any time pursuant to Art. 7 para. 3 EU DS-GVO to us for the future.
  • When processing personal data that is required for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b EU DS-GVO as the legal basis.
  • Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c EU DS-GVO as the legal basis.
  • If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU DS-GVO as the legal basis for the processing. In this case, you have the right to object according to Art. 21 EU GDPR.

1.3 Data deletion and storage period

Personal data is deleted as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. In addition, storage may take place if this is provided for by statutory retention obligations to which our company is subject (e.g. accounting or tax retention periods of up to 10 years in accordance with AO and HGB).

1.4 Your rights

Upon written request, we will inform you in accordance with Art. 15 EU DS-GVO and our legal obligation under Art. 12 EU DS-GVO whether and which of your personal data is processed or stored by us. Furthermore, you have the right to correct inaccurate data in accordance with Art. 16 EU GDPR, data portability in accordance with Art. 20 EU GDPR, blocking and deletion of your personal data in accordance with Art. 17 EU GDPR – provided that there are no legal retention obligations to the contrary – and the right to restrict processing in accordance with Art. 18 EU GDPR. In addition, you have the right to contact the competent supervisory authority pursuant to Art. 77 EU GDPR.


If you have given us your consent to process your data, there is of course always the right to do so pursuant to Art. 7 para. 3 EU DS-GVO, you have the option of revoking this with respect to us for the future.

If you have any questions regarding the processing of your personal data, you can contact our data protection officer, who is also available to you in the event of requests for information, suggestions or complaints.

1.5 Minors

Our online services are generally aimed at persons of legal age. Personal information of persons who have not yet reached the age of 16 may only be made available to us if the express consent of the parent or guardian has been obtained (Art. 8 EU GDPR). Processing without the consent of the parent or guardian is not permitted. We therefore reserve the right to delete all data relating to minors unless we have the consent of a parent or guardian.

1.6 Change to our privacy policy

In order to ensure that our privacy policy always complies with the current legal requirements, we reserve the right to make changes at any time. This also applies in the event that the data protection declaration has to be adapted due to new or revised services, for example new services.

2.1 Provision of the website

Use of hosting service providers

Our website is hosted on servers located in the EU by a hosting service provider on the basis of commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 EU GDPR. The hosting service provider may have access to personal data of our users as part of its services, in particular to technical data that is generated as part of the technical communication between you and our website (e.g. server log files). He may not use them for his own purposes. The use of a hosting service provider is based on our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU DS-GVO in the provision of infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, e-mail dispatch and security services.

Server log files

When you visit our website or use its services, the device with which you access the page automatically transmits log data (connection data) to our server. The corresponding information consists of:

  • Type and version of the browser you are using,
  • Type and version of the operating system you are using,
  • Referrer URL of the page from which you arrived at our website,
  • Date and time of accessing our website,
  • Name of the sub-pages you have accessed,
  • IP address of your computer system,
  • Amount of data transferred in each case.

The data collected is used exclusively for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security and optimization of the offer. For security reasons, however, we reserve the right to subsequently review the log data if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete indications. The data will not be stored longer than necessary for this purpose. This collection is based on our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU GDPR.


We use so-called cookies in some areas of the website in order to recognize visitors’ preferences and to be able to design the website accordingly in an optimal and attractive manner.

Security of your data

We use technical and organizational security measures to adequately protect the data you provide against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. We therefore use SSL encryption for the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser address bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser bar. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties. Our security measures are further developed according to the state of the art.

2.2 Contacting

If you contact us (e.g. by contact form, e-mail, telephone, social media), your personal data will be used for the purpose of processing the request and any related follow-up questions pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b EU DS-GVO (in the context of pre-contractual/contractual measures) or pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU DS-GVO (general inquiries) are stored and processed by us. We do not pass on this data without your respective consent.

The data you provide will remain with us until you request us to delete it, object to its storage, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (i.e. after we have completed processing your request), provided that this does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations.

This confirmation is necessary to prevent registrations from other e-mail addresses. Subscriptions to the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements (consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU GDPR). This includes storing the time of registration and confirmation as well as the IP address. Any data we receive from you and the logged information will not be passed on to third parties.

IV. Information for customers and suppliers

4.1 Purpose and legal basis for the collection and processing

First and foremost, data processing serves to establish, implement and terminate the contractual relationship. The primary legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b EU GDPR. Without this type of use of your data, the implementation of the business relationship existing between you and us is not possible.

We also process your data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU DS-GVO to protect our legitimate interests or those of third parties (e.g. public authorities). This may be necessary, for example, to maintain IT security and IT operations or for corporate management, internal communication and other administrative purposes. You can object to this processing by stating special reasons in accordance with Art. 21 EU GDPR.

In addition, we process your data to fulfill legal obligations such as regulatory requirements, commercial and tax retention obligations or documentation obligations. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c EU GDPR in conjunction with the nationally applicable laws.

In individual cases, we may also process your data on the basis of your separate consent granted to us in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, 7 EU DS-GVO (e.g. publication of photo and video recordings).

4.2 Recipients of your data

Within our company, only those persons receive your personal data who need them to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations. In addition, we sometimes use different service providers to fulfill these obligations, so that it may be necessary to transfer your personal data to other recipients outside the company, insofar as this is necessary to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations. These third parties can be, for example, government agencies, financial institutions, suppliers, etc.

In order to process your data technically, we sometimes use external service providers. We may transfer and process your data outside the country in which you have your residence/company headquarters or in one of the countries in which we operate. These may also be located outside the European Economic Area. If we transfer personal data to service providers or companies outside the European Economic Area (EEA), the transfer will only take place if the third country has been confirmed by the EU Commission to have an adequate level of data protection or if other appropriate data protection guarantees (e.g. binding internal company data protection regulations or EU standard contractual clauses) are in place. Detailed information can also be requested using the contact information above.

4.3 Storage of your data

We only store your personal data for as long as it is required for the above-mentioned purposes. After termination of the contractual relationship, your personal data will be stored for as long as we are legally obliged to do so. This regularly results from legal obligations to provide evidence and to retain records, which are regulated, among other things, in the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch) and the German Fiscal Code (Abgabenordnung). The storage periods are then up to ten years. In addition, personal data may be retained for the period during which claims may be brought against us (statutory limitation period of three or up to thirty years).
