Privacy Policy

Scope of application

This data protection statement explains to users how, to what extent and to what purpose personal data are collected and used by the responsible provider Possehl Erzkontor GmbH & Co. KG, Beckergrube 38-52, 23552 Lübeck, +49 451 148 0, on this website (hereafter known as “website”).

The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).

Page request data / server log files

The provider (or its webspace provider) collects data on every page request sent to the website (known as server log files). Page request data includes:

Name of website requested, file, date and time of the request, data volume sent, report on successful request, browser type and version, user's operating system, referrer URL (page last visited), IP address and requesting provider.

The provider only uses the report data for statistical analyses for the purpose of operating, securing and optimising the website. However, the provider reserves the right to verify the report data if it legitimately suspects unlawful use on the basis of concrete indications.


When establishing contact with the provider (e.g. by means of a contact form or email), the information provided by the user is stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case other questions arise.

Embedded third-party services and contents

Third-party contents may be embedded within this online offering, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. In all cases this means that the providers of these contents (hereafter known as "third-party providers") employ the user's IP address. Because without the IP address the contents could not be sent to the individual user's browser. The IP address is therefore required for displaying these contents. We endeavour only to use contents from providers who use the IP address solely to deliver the contents. However, it is beyond our control if third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. To the extent that we are aware of it we inform users accordingly.


Cookies are small files that make it possible to store certain device-specific information on the user's access device (PC, smartphone, etc). They serve partly to make the websites more user-friendly for the benefit of users (e.g. by storing log-in data). They also serve to record and enable analysis of statistical data about website use in order to improve the website service. Users can control the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option with which the saving of cookies can be restricted or completely denied. Users are nonetheless advised that without cookies the functions and convenience of the website may be impaired.
