Data Protection

General notes and mandatory information

We respect your wishes with regard to the protection of personal data and treat your personal data confidentially on the basis of this data protection declaration and within the framework of the statutory data protection regulations.

As a rule, it is possible to use our website without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We have taken precautions to secure our systems and to protect the data transmitted, e.g. via contact form. The transmission of data is encrypted using the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol. SSL-encrypted websites can be identified in the browser by the corresponding symbol or in the URL by the HTTPS protocol ( ).

Name and address of the person responsible:

GRACHER Kredit- und Kautionsmakler GmbH & Co.KG
Mr. Alfons-Maria Gracher
Bahnhofstraße 30-32
54292 Trier

How do we collect your data?

Some data is collected automatically or after consent by the IT systems when visiting the website. This is technical data (internet browser, time of page view, etc.) that is automatically collected when you visit the website.

Other data is collected when you provide it to us, for example by filling out the contact form.

What do we use your data for?

We collect and use your personal data mainly only to guarantee error-free provision of the website. Some data may also be used to analyse your user behaviour.

What rights do you have?

You have the right to obtain information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data at any time. You also have the right to have this data corrected or deleted. If you have given your consent to data processing, you can revoke this consent at any time. You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or a third party in a common, machine-readable format. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.

Storage period

Unless a specific storage period has been specified, we will store your personal data until the purpose for processing no longer applies. Should you request a justified deletion of your data or revoke your consent, your data will be deleted unless there are other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data.

The use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation for the purpose of sending advertising and information material not expressly requested is hereby prohibited. The operators of the site reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information.

Data collection on our website


Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and managed by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until they are deleted manually or automatically. Cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.


The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits.

These are: Browser type/browser version, information about the operating system used, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer, as well as the time of the server request.

This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries and messages via the contact form, the information you provide in the form, including the contact details you enter there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you entered in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.


Newsletter information and consent

The following information explains the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedures and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it and to the procedures described.

Newsletter content

We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with promotional information (hereinafter “newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipients or a legal permission. If the contents of a newsletter are specifically described in the registration, they are decisive for the user’s consent. In addition, our newsletters contain information on topics related to client knowledge and law firm management.

Double opt-in and logging

Registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in process. This means that after registration you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other email addresses.

The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored by Cleverreach are also logged.

Use of the “Cleverreach” shipping service provider

The newsletter is sent using “Cleverreach”, a newsletter dispatch platform of the

CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG,
Mühlenstr. 43
26180 Rastede Germany

The email addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in this notice, are stored on Cleverreach’s servers in Europe. Cleverreach uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. Furthermore, Cleverreach may, according to its own information, use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimise the dispatch and presentation of the newsletters or for economic purposes to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, Cleverreach does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass it on to third parties.

We trust Cleverreach’s reliability and IT and data security. Furthermore, we have concluded a written data processing agreement with Cleverreach. This is a contract in which Cleverreach undertakes to protect our users’ data, to process it on our behalf in accordance with its data protection provisions and, in particular, not to pass it on to third parties”.
