Data protection and privacy is a particular concern of MKR Metzger GmbH. Our efforts, in particular to satisfy the requirements of the European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the latest version of the German Federal Data Protection Act (“Bundesdatenschutzgesetz”), are primarily aimed at protecting and respecting your privacy and personal rights.
For modern businesses such as MKR Metzger GmbH, use of electronic data processing systems (EDP) is now indispensable. We naturally invest the greatest possible effort in complying with the statutory provisions.
It is possible to use the MKR Metzger GmbH website without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use particular services of our company through our website, it may become necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and no legal basis exists for such processing, in general we obtain the consent of the data subject.
We will never sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes or other purposes. If you do not agree with the data protection provisions, please do not send us any personal data.


This data protection statement (privacy policy) is based on the terms used in the GDPR and should be easy for each person to read and understand. We therefore want to explain diverse terms used first:


Personal data is all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (named the “data subject” in the following). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.


A data subject is each identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data are processed by the controller.


Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.


Restriction of processing means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.


Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.


Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.


Controller means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.


Processor / data processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.


Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients.


Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.


Consent of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
