Data protection Online data protection principles of the H&R GROUP

The H&R GROUP is delighted that you are visiting our website and that you are interested in our company. 

We take the issue of data protection very seriously here at the H&R GROUP. Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to inform you of how we implement the data protection provisions at the H&R GROUP and which information we gather during your visit to our website and how this is used. Firstly: your data is used exclusively for the following purposes and not in any other way without your permission, e.g. for advertising purposes.

Capture of data

When you visit the H&R GROUP website, certain general information is automatically (i.e. not via registration) collected that cannot be used to identify you personally. By default, the webservers used save:

• the name of your Internet Service Provider 
• the website from which you are visiting us 
• which of our websites you are visiting 
• your IP address.

This information is evaluated in anonymised form where a personal reference is made. It is used only to improve the appeal, content and functionality of our website. Where data is forwarded to external service providers in anonymised form, we have ensured, through technical and organisational measures, that the security of this data (particularly to avoid access by third parties) is guaranteed (see also 'Security'). 

Collection and processing of personal data
Personal data is collected only if you have made it available to us, e.g. as part of a registration, by filling in forms or sending e-mails, as part of the ordering of products or services, enquiries or request for material. 
Your personal data and its content remain with our company and our provider. Your personal data is in no way made available by us or by third parties authorised by us.

Data retention
We store personal data for as long as is required to carry out a service you requested or to which you have given your permission, provided there are no contradicting legal obligations such as retention periods laid down in business and tax law.

The H&R GROUP implements technical and organisational security measures to protect the data you have provided from accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Where personal data is collected and processed, this is done in encrypted form in order to prevent misuse of the data by third parties. Our security measures are continuously updated according to technological developments. 

Access and correction rights
You have the right to check and, if necessary, correct all your personal data stored by us. An e-mail to the e-mail address listed in the Legal notice section or to the person responsible for data protection will suffice (see below for address and e-mail address).

We use cookies only in certain parts of our corporate website if this is required for an application or a service that we are providing.


If you have any questions or queries, please contact the data protection officer at the HANSEN & ROSENTHAL GROUP who will be happy to help you. The constant development of the Internet means that our data protection principles will need to be adjusted from time to time. We reserve the right to make changes at any time.
