In order to make the use of our website as pleasant as possible and for advertising purposes, we use so-called web tracking systems. Cookies are usually used, i.e. small text files that are sent from a web server to your browser and stored on your computer's hard drive. This enables us to recognise the device you are using when you visit the website again. Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser and have the possibility to delete them from your hard disk at any time. However, you can also use your browser to only prevent certain cookies from being set (e.g. cookies from third parties), for example if you want to prevent web tracking. Please refer to your browser's help function for more information.
We would like to point out that you can also install a plugin in your browser to protect your privacy, which offers the possibility to prevent tracking - e.g. AdBlock, Ghostery or NoScript (please note the data protection policies of the respective plugin provider).
Finally, we would like to point out that if cookies are deactivated, not all functions of this website may be used in full.
The legal basis for the processing of your data in accordance with Section 3. is Art. 6 (1)(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the demand-oriented design of the website.

- 3.1. Google Analytics
Our website uses the tracking tool "Google Analytics" from the provider Google LLC. (Google), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This tracking tool helps us to make our website more interesting for you and to improve the user experience. For this, data about the use of our website is stored in pseudonymous user profiles. Cookies may also be used for this purpose. In addition, data from various devices, sessions and interactions can be linked with a so-called "User ID". The information generated is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and is stored there. We would like to point out that on our website the "anonymizeIp" function has been added to Google Analytics. As a result, your IP address will initially be reduced by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and only subsequently transferred to a Google server in the USA.
On our behalf, Google will use the information received to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website and Internet use. The pseudonymised user profiles are not combined with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym without a separately given consent.
More information about Google Analytics can be found at:
In addition, you can also prevent collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: Disable Google Tag Manager / Google Analytics. This sets an opt-out cookie, which prevents future collection of your data when you visit our website. Please note, however, that if you delete your cookies, this means that the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and may have to be activated again by you. This opt-out must be performed for each system on which you use our service, e.g. also in another browser or on a mobile device.
- 3.2. Google Tag Manager
- 3.3. Google Fonts
Our website uses "Google Fonts" from Google to display fonts uniformly. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. Among other things, your IP address is transmitted to the Google servers. If your browser does not support Google Fonts, standard fonts are used.
- 3.4. Google Maps
The dealer search uses the functions of Google Maps. Google Maps is a web service for the visualisation and utilization of geographical information. The service is used to show you the nearest dealers by country and zip code you enter.
This is done by connecting your browser to Google's servers as if you are visiting the Google Maps website. If you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before using the dealer search. Google is responsible for data processing by Google. There is no tracking by Google on our website.
- 3.5. Social Networks and Embedded Vimeo Videos
Our website contains embedded videos of the streaming service Vimeo as well as links to social networks (Facebook, Instagram Twitter, Tumblr). These services are operated exclusively by third party providers. If you follow the links or play videos, information may be transferred to these providers. When you visit our site, no personal data will be passed on. Only if you click on one of the Social buttons, data will be transferred to the respective provider. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the provider as well as their respective rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the data protection information of the respective provider.

- Duration for which Personal Data are stored /Criteria for determing the Duration
Your personal data will be deleted by us as soon as they are no longer necessary for the aforementioned purposes of processing, in the event of an objection if there are no opposing grounds of Mahlkönig worthy of protection or in the event of a revocation if there remains no other legal basis for data processing.

For example, the retention period for messages with business content via the contact form can be ten years.
- Security Measure to protect your personal data
We protect your data by technical and organisational measures against unauthorised access, loss or destruction. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. Our employees and all persons involved in data processing are obliged to comply with data protection laws and the confidential handling of personal data. Our employees are trained accordingly.
To protect the personal data of our users, we use a secure online transmission procedure, the so-called "Secure Socket Layer" (SSL) transmission. You can recognise this by the fact that an "s" ("https://") or a green, closed lock symbol is added to the address component http://. By clicking on the icon you will receive information about the SSL certificate used. The display of the symbol depends on the browser version you are using. SSL encryption guarantees the encrypted and complete transmission of your data.

However, this does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.
