Effective Date: June 10th, 2021
We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of particular importance to the management of PACCOR Packaging GmbH. The use of the internet pages of PACCOR Packaging GmbH is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to use special services of our company via our website, processing of personal data may be necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to PACCOR Packaging GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. In addition, data subjects are informed about their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller, PACCOR Packaging GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of the personal data processed via this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security vulnerabilities, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, any data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
The website and our services are operated by Paccor Packaging GmbH (" we ", " us " or " our "). Paccor Packaging GmbH is the data controller for your personal data, which is processed via the website. Paccor Packaging GmbH was founded under German law and is based at Peter-Müller-Str. 16 / 16a, 40468 Düsseldorf, Germany and registered in the Düsseldorf company register under the number HRB 82819.
Please note that depending on the country from which you access the Site or with which Paccor unit you enter into a contract with respect to the Services, the following entities may also be responsible for the processing of your personal data processed in relation to the Services:
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as the "data subject"). Identifiable is a natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by association with an identifier such as a name, identification number, location data, online identifier or one or more specific characteristics that are an expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
The data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller.
Processing is any operation or series of operations carried out with or without the help of automated procedures in connection with personal data such as the collection, collection, organisation, ordering, storage, adaptation or modification, reading, querying, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.
Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data that consists in the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, whereabouts or relocation of that natural person.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
The person responsible for processing or the controller is the natural or legal person, authority, body or other body which decides, alone or jointly with others, on the purposes and means of processing personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union law or the law of the Member States, the controller may or may provide for the specific criteria for his designation in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States.
Processor is a natural or legal person, authority, body or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, body or other body to which personal data are disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data under Union or Member State law under a particular investigative mission shall not be deemed to be recipients.
A third party is a natural or legal person, authority, body or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or processor.
Consent is any statement of intent voluntarily made by the data subject in an informed and unequivocal manner in the form of a declaration or other unambiguous affirmative act in which the data subject indicates that he or she agrees to the processing of the personal data concerning him or her.
The responsible person for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws in force in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is:
The data protection officer of the controller is:
If you are accessing the Site from Germany or you are being provided Services in Germany, please note that the Paccor German entities have a Data Protection Officer whose details are as follows DPO@paccor.com.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
The website of PACCOR Packaging GmbH collects a series of general data and information with each call-up of the website by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is not fully stored in the log files of the server. The Internet protocol address (IP address) is stored anonymously via Google Analytics.
When using this general data and information, PACCOR Packaging GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, and (2) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated statistically by PACCOR Packaging GmbH on the one hand and further with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
Due to legal regulations, the website of PACCOR Packaging GmbH contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller shall be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
The controller shall only process and store the data subject's personal data for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or if this has been provided for by the European legislator or another legislator in the laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.
If the purpose of storage is waived or a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted routinely and in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Each data subject has the right granted by the European legislator to require the controller to certify whether personal data concerning him or her will be processed. If a data subject wishes to use this right of confirmation, he or she may at any time contact email@example.com.
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain free information at any time from the controller about the personal data stored about him or her and a copy of that information. In addition, the European legislator has granted the data subject information on the following information:
In addition, the data subject has a right of access to whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer.
If a data subject wishes to avare this right of access, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator to request the immediate rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him/her. In addition, the data subject has the right, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration.

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator to require the controller to delete the personal data concerning him or her without delay, provided that one of the following reasons is true and that the processing is not necessary:
If one of the above reasons applies and a data subject wishes to request the deletion of personal data stored by PACCOR Packaging GmbH, he or she may at any time contact email@example.com. The employee of PACCOR Packaging GmbH will arrange for the deletion request to be complied with without delay.
If the personal data have been made public by PACCOR Packaging GmbH and our company is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 sec. 1 GDPR, PACCOR Packaging GmbH shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and implementation costs, in order to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data, that the data subject has requested from these other data controllers the deletion of all links to such personal data or copies or replicas of such personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The relevant employee of PACCOR Packaging GmbH will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator to require the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions is met:
If one of the above conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by PACCOR Packaging GmbH, he or she may at any time contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The relevant employee of PACCOR Packaging GmbH will arrange for the restriction of processing.
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain the personal data concerning him or her, which have been provided by the data subject to a controller, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. It also has the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data were provided, provided that the processing is based on the consent in accordance with Article 6(1) (a) GDPR or Article 9(2) (a) OR on a contract under Article 6(1) (b) of the GDPR and the processing is carried out using automated procedures, provided that the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task which is in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority entrusted to the controller.
Furthermore, in exercising his right to data portability in accordance with Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from a controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning him or her, on the basis of Article 6(1) (e) or (f) GDPR, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
PACCOR Packaging GmbH will no longer process the personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If PACCOR Packaging GmbH processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to PACCOR Packaging GmbH's processing for direct marketing purposes, PACCOR Packaging GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning him or her for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) GDPR, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effect towards him or otherwise significantly affects it, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is permitted by Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject and that legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) takes place with the express consent of the data subject.

If the data subject wishes to exercise his or her right to withdraw consent, he or she may at any time contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The controller has integrated the component Google Analytics (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data about which website a data subject came to a website from (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for what length of stay a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used for optimizing a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
The controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the data subject's Internet connection is truncated by Google and anonymized when access to our websites is made from a Member State of the European Union or from another contracting state of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyze the use of our website. Every time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical procedure, Google becomes aware of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which, among other things, serve Google to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission statements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Every time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.
The website uses so-called web fonts provided by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").
When accessing one of our websites, the visitor's browser loads the required web fonts into the browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the affected browser must connect to Google's servers. In this way, Google becomes aware of the IP address of the visitor that has accessed our website.
The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If your browser does not support Web Fonts, a default font is used by your computer system.
The controller has integrated components of LinkedIn Corporation on this website. LinkedIn is an Internet-based social network that enables users to connect with existing business contacts and to establish new business contacts. More than 400 million registered people use LinkedIn in more than 200 countries. This makes LinkedIn the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most visited websites in the world.
Every time we access our website, which is equipped with a LinkedIn component, this component causes the browser used by the data subject to download a corresponding representation of the component of LinkedIn. For more information about the LinkedIn plug-ins, see https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. As part of this technical process, LinkedIn is informed about which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in to LinkedIn at the same time, LinkedIn recognizes with each call-up of our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website, which specific sub-page of our website the data subject visits. This information is collected by the LinkedIn component and assigned to the respective LinkedIn account of the data subject through LinkedIn. If the data subject presses a LinkedIn button integrated on our website, LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.
LinkedIn receives information via the LinkedIn component that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged in to LinkedIn at the time of accessing our website; this occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the LinkedIn component or not. If such a transmission of this information to LinkedIn is not wanted by the data subject, the data subject can prevent the transmission by logging out of his LinkedIn account before calling up our website.
Article 6 I lit. a of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. Where 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, in the case of processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing shall be based on Article 6 I lit. b of the GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c of the GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were to be injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third parties. The processing would then be based on Article 6 I lit. d of the GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Article 6 I lit. f of the GDPR. This legal basis is based on processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases where the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are allowed to do this kind of processing, in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be presumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 of the GDPR).
Based on Article 6 I lit. f of the GDPR, our legitimate interest in carrying out our business for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders is based on Article 6 I lit. f of the GDPR.
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of the period, the relevant data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer necessary for the performance of the contract or initiation of the contract.
We inform you that 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). In some ways, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact email@example.com. We shall clarifies on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the non-provision of the personal data would have.
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
In the event of data protection violations, the person concerned has the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in matters of data protection law is the state 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 for Germany at the following link:
You can report them to your national data protection authority, whose contact details are available at http://ec.europa.eu/Justice/Article-29/Structure/DataProtectionAuthorities/index_en.htm.
This data protection declaration was prepared by the data protection declaration generator of the DGD Deutsche Gesellschaft für Datenschutz GmbH, which operates as the External Data Protection Officer Schweinfurt, in cooperation with the lawyer for data protection law Christian Solmecke.
