The following notes provide a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit our website. Personal data are all data with which you can be personally identified. You will find detailed information on the subject of data protection in our data protection declaration listed under this text.
Data collection on our website
Who is responsible for the data collection on this website?
The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find his contact details in the imprint of this website.
How do we collect your information?
On the one hand, your data is collected when you communicate it to us. This may be data that you enter in a contact form, for example.
Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit our website. These are mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of page visit). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
What do we use your data for?
Part of the data is collected in order to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data can be used to analyze your user behavior.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data free of charge at any time. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint if you have any further questions on the subject of data protection. You also have the right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. After complete contract processing – this also includes the sending of our semi-annual catalogue, which is limited to a maximum period of three years and to which you can object at any time – your data will be blocked and deleted after expiry of the tax and commercial law regulations, unless you have expressly agreed to a further use of data.
Third-party analysis and tools
When you visit our website, your surfing behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This is done primarily with cookies and so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is usually anonymous; the surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You may object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. You will find detailed information on this in the following data protection declaration.
You can object to this analysis. We will inform you about the possibilities of objection in this data protection declaration.
2. General Information and Mandatory Information
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
When you use this website, various personal data is collected. Personal data are data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection declaration explains which data we collect and for what we use it. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.
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.
Request by email, phone or fax
If you contact us by email, phone or fax, your request including all personal data (name, inquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) and / or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of enquiries addressed to us.
The data you send us via contact requests will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
The responsible department for data processing on this website is:
Heinr. Böker Baumwerk GmbH Solingen
Phone: +49 212 4012-0
Responsible body is the natural or legal person who alone or together with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing processes are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail. The legality of the data processing up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of breaches of data protection law, the person concerned has a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The responsible supervisory authority for data protection issues is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html
Right to data transferability
You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another person responsible, this will only take place if it is technically feasible.
SSL / TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Encrypted payment transactions on this website
If after the conclusion of a chargeable contract there is an obligation to provide us with your payment data (e.g. account number for direct debit authorization), this data is required for payment processing.
Payment transactions via the usual means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are made exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
In the case of encrypted communication, your payment data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion
You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data at any time within the scope of the applicable legal provisions. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.
Objection against advertising mails

4. Data collection on our website
Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited. You can find detailed instructions on how to prevent cookies from being stored in your browser at: http://www.allaboutcookies.org
Cookies, which are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping basket function), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for technically error-free and optimized provision of his services. As far as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behaviour) are stored, these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.
The data stored in our cookies is not linked to your personal data (name, address, etc.) or sensitive data (passwords, credit card data, bank details, etc.).
Web-Bugs or also “clear GIFs” are small, approx. 1*1 pixel large GIF files, which can be placed in other graphics, e-mails, or the like. Web bugs perform similar functions to cookies, but are not noticeable to you as a user. Web bugs send your IP address, the Internet address of the Web page you are visiting (URL), the time the Web bug was viewed, the browser type of the user, and previously set cookie information to a Web server.
By using so-called web bugs on our pages, we can identify your computer and evaluate user behavior (e.g., responses to promotions). This information is anonymous and is not linked to any personal information on the user’s computer or database. We may also use this technology in our newsletter.
To prevent web bugs on our sites, you can use tools such as webwasher, bugnosys or AdBlock. To prevent web bugs in our newsletter, please set your e-mail program so that no HTML is displayed in messages. Web bugs will also be prevented if you read your emails offline.
We will not use web bugs to collect unsolicited personal information about you or to transmit such information to third parties and marketing platforms without your explicit consent.
Server log files
The provider of the pages 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 are not combined with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The data entered in the contact form is therefore processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail. The legality of the data processing processes carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete, your consent for storage revoked or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
This website uses Userlike

Depending on the course of the conversation with our employees, further personal data may be provided by you in the chat. The nature of this information depends heavily on your request or the problem you are describing.
All our employees have been trained in data protection and in the handling of customer data. All our employees are obliged to maintain confidentiality and have accordingly signed an addendum to their employment contracts which obliges them to maintain confidentiality and observe data protection.
In addition, Boker stores the history of live chats. The purpose of this is to save our customers from having to go through a long history of requests, and for us to constantly monitor the quality of our live chat service. Processing is permitted pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 Book f, GDPR. If you do not wish your live chat history to be stored, please do not hesitate to contact us using the contact details listed below. Stored live chats and any other of your data will then be deleted by us immediately.
The storage of chat data also serves the purpose of ensuring the security of our information technology systems. This is also our legitimate interest, which is why processing is permitted under Art. 6 Para. 1 Book f, GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of the data provided in the chat is also Art. 6 Para. 1 Books b and f, GDPR.

A further transmission of the data will not take place or only if you have expressly consented to the transmission. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes.

Our company regularly checks your creditworthiness of existing customers when concluding contracts and in certain cases in which there is a justified interest. For this purpose we work together with Creditreform Boniversum GmbH, Hammfelddamm 13, 41460 Neuss, from which we receive the necessary data. On behalf of Creditreform Boniversum, we provide you with the following information in advance in accordance with Art. 14 EU DSGVO:
Creditreform Boniversum GmbH is a consumer information agency. It operates a database in which credit information on private individuals is stored.
On this basis, Creditreform Boniversum provides credit information to its customers. Customers include, for example, banks, leasing companies, insurance companies, telecommunications companies, receivables management companies, mail order, wholesale and retail companies and other companies that supply goods or services. Within the framework of legal regulations, part of the data available in the information database is also used for the supply of other company databases, among other things for use for address trading purposes.
In particular, the Creditreform Boniversum database stores information about the name, address, date of birth, e-mail address if applicable, payment behaviour and the shareholdings of persons. The purpose of processing the stored data is to provide information about the creditworthiness of the requested person. The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1f EU DSGVO. Information on this data may only be provided thereafter if a customer can credibly demonstrate a justified interest in knowing this information. If data is transferred to countries outside the EU, this is done on the basis of the so-called “standard contractual clauses”, which you can find under the following link: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/PDF/?uri=CELEX:32001D0497&from=DE
or have them sent from there.
The data are stored as long as their knowledge is necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose of storage. As a rule, this knowledge is required for an initial storage period of three years. After expiration it is checked whether a storage is still necessary, otherwise the data are deleted exactly to the day. If a case is dealt with, the data is deleted to the day three years after it has been dealt with. In accordance with § 882e ZPO, entries in the register of debtors are deleted to the day after the expiry of three years from the date of the registration order.
Justified interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1f EU DSGVO may be: credit decision, business initiation, shareholdings, claims, credit assessment, insurance contract, enforcement information.
You have the right to obtain information from Creditreform Boniversum GmbH about the personal data stored there. If the data stored about you is incorrect, you have a right to correction or deletion.

If your data is incomplete, you can request its completion.
If you have given your consent to the processing of the data stored at Creditreform Boniversum, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time. This revocation does not affect the legality of the processing of your data based on your consent until it is revoked, if any.

He will help you quickly and confidentially in all questions of data protection. You may also complain about Boniversum’s processing of your data to the data protection officer of your federal state.
The data Creditreform Boniversum has stored about you comes from publicly available sources, from debt collection companies and their customers.
To describe your creditworthiness, Creditreform Boniversum creates a score value for your data. The score value includes data on age and gender, address data and, in some cases, payment experience data. This data is included in the score value calculation with different weighting. Creditreform Boniversum customers use the score values as a tool for making their own credit decisions.
The processing of the data stored at Creditreform Boniversum takes place for compelling reasons worthy of protection of creditors and credit protection, which regularly outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If such special reasons can be proven, the data will no longer be processed there.

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both his website and his advertising.

This will cause your IP address to be cut by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use.
