Data protection


Thank you for your interest in our online presence. The protection of your personal data is particularly important to us. Below we would like to inform you in detail about the handling of these. Of course, all legal provisions, in particular those of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) as well as other data protection regulations are observed.

1.  Data collection and processing

a)   Information that we collect when you visit our website about you:  For the visit of our website and the use of our online offer, it is generally not necessary to provide personal data. Only access data without direct personal reference, such as the name of your Internet service provider, the page from which you visit us, the names of the requested files and their retrieval date are stored. These data are evaluated exclusively to improve our offer and do not allow any direct conclusions about your person.

b)   Information you give us voluntarily:  Personal data will be collected if you voluntarily disclose it to us. This happens, for example, when you fill out forms on our website, eg via the contact form, or if you correspond with us by telephone, e-mail or in any other way.

The information you give us may include your name, address, e-mail address and telephone number, date of birth and are required for us to provide our services to you.

In accordance with our values, we treat all personal data we receive in accordance with the privacy principles of Art. 5 GDPR, ie 1) lawful, transparent good faith processing, 2) purpose limitation, 3) data minimization, 4) accuracy and data quality, 5 ) Memory limit, 6) Integrity and confidentiality and 7) Accountability.

2.  Use and disclosure of personal data

We use your personal data only to the extent permitted by law. This happens mostly in the following situations:

a) To fulfill the contract or if we are about to conclude a contract with you or if we take certain measures or steps at your request. For example, if you entrust us with the provision of a service, your personal data, limited to the minimum necessary, will be used for the provision of the service or the execution of the purchase contract. This includes, in particular, the transfer of your data to transport companies, financial companies or other service providers used to provide the service or to execute the contract.

b) For the necessary pursuit of our legitimate interests or that of a third party and as far as your interests and rights do not proceed. For example, if we respond to your requests, inform you of changes to our Terms and Conditions or this Privacy Policy, or if we demonstrate our products or services to you, or send information that we reasonably believe to be of interest to you, to conclude a contract with us ,

c) To fulfill legal or regulatory obligations. For example, if we pass on your data to a manufacturer in connection with a product recall or as part of our efforts to keep our services safe and secure, or if the health or safety of individuals is threatened.

As part of the legal provisions, we have entered into or will enter into written agreements with third party recipients that are consistent with this Privacy Policy. We require all third party recipients to respect the security of your personal information and to treat it in accordance with the law, in particular the applicable privacy policy. A transfer of your data to third parties outside of Grand Prix Marketing Consultants is only to the extent necessary and legally permitted.


In order to assist you in your business, we provide you with information on the products and services that we offer within the scope of the legal provisions, as far as you have consented or in our view could be of interest to you in a comprehensible manner. You will receive this information in accordance with your consent or if you have purchased products or services from us or after weighing legitimate interests through different channels, eg by mail, telephone, fax or e-mail; the latter, for example, if you have registered for the receipt of our newsletter using your name and your e-mail address in the so-called double-opt-in procedure.

A given consent can be withdrawn at any time with effect for the future. Please use the following ways:

By e-mail:

We will implement your withdrawal as soon as possible. Please note, however, that the processing may take some time. It may therefore be that you will receive marketing and promotional information even after the opposition, because the appropriate measure was already in the expiration phase upon receipt of your revocation.

Even if you have effectively objected to receiving marketing and promotional information, this disclaimer will not apply to your personal information that we legitimately process because of other legal grounds, such as your purchase of our products or services.

In principle, you can exercise all the above rights free of charge. In individual cases, we are entitled by DSGVO to charge a reasonable processing fee if your application is manifestly unfounded, repeated or excessive. Alternatively, under these circumstances, we may decline your request.

5.  How long do we retain your personal information?

We will not retain your personal information for longer than is necessary for the purpose of the processing for which it was collected. This also includes the fulfillment of legal, in particular commercial and corporate law as well as tax and regulatory requirements. In order to determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider, among other things, the number, nature and sensitivity of personal data; the potential risk of damage that may arise, for example, from unauthorized use or disclosure; the purposes for which we process your personal information; and whether we can achieve these ends by other, milder means within the applicable legal requirements.

For example, we are required by law to retain basic information about our customers (including contact and financial information as well as transactional information) for up to six years after use. For other documents, in particular the legally relevant information, eg contracts, invoices, etc., we are obliged to keep for up to ten years.

We will take all reasonable steps to destroy any data that is no longer needed or delete it from our system.
