Cookies and server log files

The internet pages of the ATHOS Elektrosysteme GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored and saved via an Internet browser on a computer system.

The use of cookies makes it possible for the visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from others.

By using cookies, ATHOS Elektrosysteme GmbH can increase the user-friendliness of this website and provide services that would not be possible without cookies. For example, the user of a Web page that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his or her access data each time the website is visited, because this is taken over from the Internet site and the cookie stored on the user's computer system.

By changing the settings of the respective Internet browser, the setting of cookies for all internet pages can be prevented. Cookies that have already been set can be deleted again. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers, but in some cases the function of the Internet site is restricted.


The usage of third party cookies can also be configured in our data protection tool.

For technical reasons, so-called server log files are also created. In these files, the hosting provider stores technical data (e.g. browser type and browser version, used operating system, time of request, IP address, etc.) that the browser automatically transmits to it. It does not merge this data with other data, so it is not possible to refer to a person.


Purpose of data collection and, if necessary, transmission of data

We only collect personal data if you provide it to us, for example, in the context of a request. Data is entered in the following areas:


Contact form

The contact form offers interested parties the possibility to send inquiries directly to ATHOS Elektrosysteme GmbH. The website also contains information on legal requirements (e.g. in the imprint), which enable a fast electronic contact to our company (e.g. via e-mail address).

If a person receives the contact by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person will be automatically saved. Data transmitted during this contact is stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the person concerned. In most cases, the mail sent will be delivered to the general mailboxes of the departments. Unless required for the processing purpose, this personal data will not be passed on to third parties outside the group companies.

If you contact our trading partners via your own e-mail service, they will process your data (depending on the registered office also in countries outside the EU). ATHOS Elektrosysteme GmbH is no longer responsible for this processing.



When you subscribe to our newsletter, you will need to provide your details to which we can send the newsletter. You agree that we will use them to send the newsletter to inform you of news. Your data will only be used to send the newsletter and not be passed on to third parties.


Route calculation with Google Maps

We use Google Maps on our website. Google Maps is a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. When using Google Maps, Google will collect data about the use of the maps functions by visitors to the websites. The data can be processed in the United States. Google's privacy policy can be found here: as well as the additional terms of use for Google Maps here:


Reach measurement with Matomo

We measure the reach of our website with Matomo, an open source tool that we operate on our own server.

No cookie is set on the user's device and the user's IP address is automatically shortened, so that it is no longer possible to draw conclusions about individual persons. Among other things, the approximate geographical location, device type, screen resolution, browser and pages visited, including the length of stay, are evaluated.

The processing of the data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 letter f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest is the optimization of our website, the improvement of our offers and online marketing.


Social plugins

Our websites use social plugins. The plugins of the respective providers can be recognized by their logo. If you visit a page with such a plugin, the service provider will be notified of which pages you are visiting. In the process, user profiles can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no control over the amount of data that an activated plugin collects and how it is used by the provider. It is also possible that the service providers try to save cookies on the computer used.

If you are logged in with your respective account, the provider may be able to assign your surfing behavior to your personal profile. This can be prevented by logging out of your account beforehand and possibly also deleting set cookies.

We also prevent the subconscious and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service provider through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only through this activation of the plugin, the collection of information and their transmission to the service provider is triggered. We do not collect personally identifiable information by means of social plugins or their use.

Which specific data is collected and how it is used, please refer to the privacy statements of the respective provider.

We use the following plugins on our website:

Legal basis for processing

If we obtain consent for certain processing operations, these are based on article 6 I lit. A DS GMO. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract e.g. for a delivery of goods or pre-contractual measures e.g. in case of inquiries, the processing is based on article 6 I lit. b DS GMO. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on article 6 I lit. (c) DS GMO. If a processing of personal data is not based on any of the aforementioned legal bases, we process data to maintain a legitimate interest of our company (improving the conduct of the business activity, or analysis, Optimization and economic operation of our website). We always pay attention to the fact that no protective interest of the person concerned, which outweighs our legitimate interest, is contrary to this.
