Motorworld Trademark Management AG, Kemptpark 3, CH – 8310 Kemptthal, Switzerland, represented by Hans Hofstetter on behalf of the administrative board (hereinafter: Motorworld AG), is the operator of the website www.motorworld.de
The body responsible for data processing on this website is:
Name and address of the responsible authority: Roger Kanzenbach
Ferdinand-Dünkel-Str. 5, 88433 Schemmerhofen
Telephone: + 49 7356 933-137
Using the website and the offers of Motorworld AG partly requires the collection, processing and use of certain personal data. In doing so, we place the greatest importance on data protection and data security, and we comply with the respectively applicable data protection provisions.
I. Collection and storage of personal data
Personal data covers all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (e.g. name, address, telephone number, date of birth or email address).
Processing means any operation carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures or any such procedure in conjunction with personal data such as the collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, querying, usage, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, reconciliation or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction of your data. All this takes place solely in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations.
We collect and store, to a certain extent, information that is accrued during use of the website (usage data, see 1). We collect and store personal information insofar as you give us your consent to do so in conjunction with the use of our online offers, such as when you register to subscribe to online publications, or for processing enquiries sent using our contact form or by email (master and content data, see 2.).
1. Usage data
No prior registration is required to simply visit the website of Motorworld AG. In this case, the following information is automatically transmitted by your web browser and stored by us in so-called log files:
Browser type and version
Operating system being used
IP address of the host computer
Date and time when you access our web pages
Web page from which you visit us (referrer URL)
Web page that you are visiting
Access method/function required by the PC making the request
Input values (e.g. file name) transferred by the computer making the request
Access status of the web server (file transferred, file not found, command not executed, etc.)
These log files are stored by us for a maximum of 60 days for the sole purpose of identifying malfunctions and for security reasons (e.g. to clarify attempted attacks) and are then deleted. Log files that have to be retained for evidence purposes are not deleted. These are stored until the respective incident has been finally clarified, and can be forwarded in individual cases to investigating authorities for the purpose of identifying and tracing unauthorised access to the web server and other criminal offences. Furthermore, these log files can be statistically and anonymously evaluated by us to optimise our website. This anonymous data is stored separately from any master and content data you may have submitted so that no conclusions can be drawn about a particular person. This data is deleted after it has been evaluated.
2. Master and content data
If registration is required to use our online services or you otherwise provide us with personal data via the website, Motorworld AG generally collects and stores the following data:
First name and family name
This will be supplemented by information given to us by you on a purely voluntary basis which may contain personal data. Examples of such voluntary details:
Age, date of birth
3. Processing purposes and legal basis
If you send us enquiries using the contact form, we will store your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you have entered there, for the purpose of processing the enquiries and for the event that follow-up questions should arise. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The data entered in the contact form is therefore processed solely on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR, General Data Protection Regulation). You can withdraw this consent at any time. Just send us an informal notification. The legality of the data processing activities conducted up until 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 it, or you revoke your consent to its storage, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after your enquiry has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected by this provision.
If you would like to subscribe to the MOTORWORLD Bulletin offered on the website, we require an email address from you, your name, and your consent that you agree to receive the newsletter. No other data is collected. We use this data solely for sending the MOTORWORLD Bulletin and we do not pass it on to third parties.
The data entered in the registration form for subscribing to the MOTORWORLD Bulletin is processed solely on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and its use for sending the MOTORWORLD Bulletin at any time, for example by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link in the registration form. The legality of the data processing activities conducted up until then remains unaffected by the revocation.
We use the foregoing master and content data solely to the extent permitted by your notice of consent.
4. Duration of retention
We store your data for as long as this is necessary for the provision of our online offer and the associated services or if we have a justified interest in its continued retention. We delete your personal data in all other cases.
So-called cookies are used when you visit the website at www.motorworld.de. These are small text files which are stored locally in the cache of your web browser and enable the browser to be identified, and through which certain information flows to us. They enable us, for example, to make your visit to our website more convenient and user-friendly. No names, postal addresses or email addresses are stored in the cookies; they only contain an online identification. This data is removed from the session after it is ended; the session cookie is deleted.
III. Social Media – Plugins

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the website.

If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. 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 other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

We have concluded a contract with Google for the order data agreement and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
This website uses the “demographic features” function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be created that contain information about the age, gender and interests of the website visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. If you do not want this, you can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in point VII. “User rights”.

When you visit the website by clicking the “tweet” button, a direct connection is established between your browser software and the Twitter server via the plugin. This informs Twitter that you have visited the website of Motorworld AG from your IP address, and Twitter may associate this information with your Twitter account.
