(“Information on data Processing” as pdf below)

We, Katjes Fassin GmbH + Co. KG, take the protection of your personal data very seriously and strictly abide by the rules of the data privacy regulations.

You can use our online services without revealing your identity. If you are asked for your personal details while on our website, such as your name, address or email address, e.g. as part of a contact form, this information is always disclosed on a voluntary basis. We use this information for our own business purposes (such as sending the requested information).

If you have questions of any kind, you can contact us online via the contact form provided. The fields marked as compulsory are necessary for us to be able to adequately assign and answer your query. Providing other information is optional. Data processing for the purpose of making contact is governed by Art. 6 para. 1 a) European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and is based on your voluntarily given consent.

The personal data collected in the context of the contact form will be erased once your inquiry or comment has been processed (generally after around six months, except in unusual cases), or alternatively following the retention period relevant for tax and commercial law purposes.

You can withdraw your previously given consent at any time without stating a reason, either using the above-mentioned contact form or by sending an email to or our data protection officer.
