of Greif Holding GmbH und Co. KG, Sterzinger Str. 7, 86165 Augsburg, Germany

(controller pursuant to the EU General Data Protection Regulation [EU-DSGVO])

We are pleased that you are interested in our company and our services and we would like you to also feel safe regarding the protection of your personal data when you visit our webpages.

We take the protection of personal data very seriously. Therefore, we comply with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) and the other applicable data protection laws as a matter of course. We would like you to know when we process what data and how we use it. We have implemented technical and organisational measures to ensure that we and external service providers comply with the regulations on data protection.

Our employees are explicitly obligated by us to maintain discretion and confidentiality and to comply with the provisions of data protection law. The information on this website has been compiled very carefully. Nevertheless, its accuracy and completeness cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, any liability for any damage relating to the use of this website is excluded. Use of our website does not establish a contractual relationship between us and the user.

Personal data
Personal data is relevant to data protection. ‘Personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’). This includes information such as your name, address, email address and telephone number.

In addition, we collect the following data:

  • Your IP address
  • The page visited by you, and the date and time of your visit
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • The quantity of data transmitted in each case
  • Your browser, the language and version of the browser software, and your operating system and its interface

We analyse this technical data in a pseudonymised form and only for statistical purposes in order to optimise our website and increase the attractiveness of our online offering. This pseudonymised data is stored separately from personal information on secure systems and cannot be traced back to an individual person.

The collected log data is also used to identify technical errors or problems with data transmission and is used by our firewall to defend against attacks on our website and infrastructure.

The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6(1)(f) EU GDPR. The legitimate interest pursued is an interest in maintaining security and also in simplifying and improving use of the website and therefore presenting our offering in a better way.

Use and purpose of data collection

When you commission our services, we collect, store and use your personal data only to the extent necessary to perform our services and fulfil the contract. This also applies to the sending of informative material, the creation of quotes and the process of responding to individual questions.

In addition, we reserve the right to use data in the event that the system is misused, in order to determine the reasons behind the misuse and its source. Please note that safe transmission is not guaranteed when data is transmitted via the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email). Therefore, sensitive data should either not be transmitted or only be transmitted via a secure connection or in an encrypted state. Other personal data such as your name, address, telephone number and email address are not collected within the framework of website use unless this information is provided voluntarily by you, e.g. when requesting a service or information.

Transmission to third parties
In general, data is not passed on to third parties unless this is necessary to further process the application.

Data relating to children and young people

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address, which is shortened by removing the last three digits) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Social media
On the website, images from Instagram have been integrated with a link. The legal basis for this is Art. 6(1)(a) EU GDPR.

Our website uses buttons for the following social networks:

Facebook, Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland
Instagram, Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland

The buttons are marked with the logo of the respective social network. However, these are not the usual social plug-ins but rather buttons with stored links. The buttons must be separately activated (clicked) by you. It is only when you click the buttons and, in doing so, consent to communication with the servers of the social network that the buttons become active and the connection is established. You are no longer on the website of Greif Holding GmbH und Co. KG.

When you activate the button, the social networks receive, among other things, the information that you visited the corresponding page of our website and when you did so. They also receive e.g. your IP address and information about the browser used and the language settings.

When you activate the button, we have no influence over the collected data and the data processing procedures, are not responsible for this data processing and are not a controller as defined in the EU GDPR in this instance.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and other processing and use of the data by the respective social network as well as your associated rights and settings options to protect your privacy can be found in the following information:

Data processing in the event of contact via messenger

In general, the general terms and conditions of the messenger providers include access to telephone numbers and the contact data stored on your mobile device. However, when you use our messenger offering in cooperation with the service provider MessengerPeople GmbH, we do not gain access to your data.

Nevertheless, please note that the data protection standards of the messenger services differ from those of Greif Mietwäsche. The data protection provisions of these providers can be found here:

Greif Mietwäsche has no influence over the data protection provisions and settings of these platforms. Nevertheless, we handle your data with the utmost sensitivity and care within our scope. However, Greif Mietwäsche accepts no liability for damage resulting from your use of the abovementioned messenger services.

What data is processed by us and what happens to this data?
The processed data is used only and exclusively for messenger communication with you within the framework of our offering, i.e. not for advertising purposes. We do not link this data to other data and do not pass it on to third parties Auftragsverarbeiter ist die MessengerPeople GmbH, Herzog-Heinrich-Str. 9, 80336 München. If you subscribe to the messenger offering of the Greif Group, the following data is processed:


  • The ID assigned to your WhatsApp account

  • The image you have set as your profile picture on WhatsApp

Facebook Messenger:

If you use WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger or iMessage, a transfer of personal data to the USA cannot be excluded because the service providers store messenger data on servers there. Please note that the data protection level in the USA according to the findings of the ECJ regarding the Privacy Shield decision (judgment in case C-311/18 ‘Schrems II’) is lower than in the territory covered by the EU GDPR. However, Greif Mietwäsche does not transmit your personal data or cause such a transmission. Eine Übertragung Ihrer Daten (Benutzername und ID) geschieht ausschließlich auf Basis Ihrer Registrierung bei den Dienstanbietern sowie aufgrund Ihrer Zustimmung nach Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. A DSGVO zu den entsprechenden Datenverarbeitungsbestimmungen der jeweiligen Dienstanbieter.

Unsubscribing and erasure
