About Us




We reserve the right to amend this data protection declaration occasionally or as necessary to ensure that it always meets current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration then applies to your next visit.


We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations, in particular the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO), the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG) (Federal Data Protection Act) and this data protection declaration. We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy.

The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

The operator of these pages takes the protection of your personal data very seriously, therefore no techniques are used to trace the access behaviour of individual users. Analysis programs and other techniques to evaluate your usage behaviour are not used on our website.


The person responsible for data processing on this website is
ZD-Automotive GmbH
Junkers-Ring 15
85098 Großmehring
Represented by the managing director Martin Gieß
Phone: +49 841 49398799


Art. 6 para. I a DSGVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations required for the performance of services, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. b DSGVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes the processing of personal data necessary, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 Par. c DSGVO and the legitimate interest.


The provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be concluded.


You can exercise the following rights at any time by contacting the person in charge and our data protection officers:

  • Information about your data stored with us and how they are processed

  • Correcting incorrect personal data

  • Deletion of your data stored with us (“right to be forgotten”). You can also request the deletion of the data, as long as there is no legal archiving obligation

  • Restriction of data processing if we are not yet allowed to delete your data due to legal obligations

  • Data transferability, if you have consented to the data processing or have concluded a contract with us

  • Objection to the processing of your data

If you have given us your consent, you can revoke it at any time with effect for the future.

You can contact the supervisory authority responsible for you at any time with a complaint. Your competent supervisory authority depends on the state of your residence, your work or the suspected infringement. A list of the supervisory authorities (for the non-public sector) with their addresses can be found at:


If you have any questions regarding data protection, please send us an e-mail or contact the data protection officer directly: Patrice Raies


We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes mentioned here or for as long as the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to apply or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.


When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected using a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser (e.g. Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Edge, Internet Explorer, Opera), the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. The Internet provider of these pages therefore automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version

  • Operating system used

  • Referrer URL

  • Host name of the accessing computer

  • Time of the server request

  • IP address

These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. A consolidation of this data with other data sources is not made. We reserve the right to check this data subsequently if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of websites requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet. It is processed in particular for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a problem-free connection of the website

  • Ensuring a smooth use of our website

  • Evaluation of system safety and stability

  • For further administrative purposes

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned purposes for data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. The recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if applicable, processors. Anonymous information of this kind is, if necessary, statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.
