Privacy Policy

We, the Garage Website Online Services (hereinafter referred to as “Garage Website Online” or “we”) via this Privacy Policy wish to hereby inform Garage Website Online users and visitors of our websites as to the purpose, type and extent of the processing of personal information. The responsible body for this data processing within the meaning of the European General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) is the Garage Website Online (

Our websites and services are constantly being revised and improved. Corresponding thereto, this Privacy Policy shall regularly be revised and updated. This applies in particular to those procedures used by us to carry out usage analysis, as well as those used to measure the effectiveness of advertising methods and comparable services, in particular those belonging to third parties. The current status of each of these services can be found in the tabulation located at the end of this Privacy Policy statement.

We would also like to note the following as regards to the usage of service providers located outside of the European Union: Garage Website Online is a service that is offered internationally. We operate worldwide and our users are scattered across this planet. Generally, we give priority to European service providers when selecting particular services and service offerings, especially where such providers can deliver the required services at a comparable and competitive price and service level. However, we also wish to be completely transparent. For many of the services that we use there is simply no comparable, acceptable alternative. As a result we therefore employ the use of a range of service providers outside the European Union, in particular from the USA. We take steps to ensure that measures according to European Data Protection law are taken and applied to guarantee an adequate level of data protection.

Usage of Personal Data

We collect, process and use personal data in accordance with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in order to provide our services. The promotion of our products and provision of information as regards product functions etc. to Garage Website Online Users as well as other interested parties is a natural component thereof. The scope of the processing of the personal data concerned depends on whether our websites are merely being visited or alternatively being used by a Garage Website Online User or more specifically if a registration as a user takes place.

Children’s Privacy

Our websites are generally accessible websites and not intended for children. We do not knowingly collect personal information from users who are considered to be children under their respective national laws.
