This website uses TLS (transport layer security) encryption for security reasons and to protect the transfer of confidential information, such as orders or requests which you send to us as the site operator. An encrypted connection can be recognized when the browser’s address line changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the padlock symbol in the browser line.
2. Collection of data on our website
Cookies are used in some of this website. They do not harm your PC or contain any viruses. Cookies make our website easier to use and more effective and secure. They are small text files which are placed onto your computer and saved by your Internet browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are used to optimize user-friendliness and automatically deleted after your visit. We also use temporary cookies to optimize user-friendliness, which remain on your computer until deleted. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
Your browser settings include options to inform you when cookies are placed on your computer, to only allow cookies on an individual basis, to accept cookies in particular cases or generally reject cookies and to turn off automatic cookie deletion when you close your browser. Deactivating cookies may restrict the functionality of this website.
Data processing via cookies is legally governed by Article 6 (1) (f) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Server log files
The site provider automatically collects and saves information in server log files, which your browser then automatically transfers to us. This information includes:
• Browser type and version
• Operating system used
• Referrer URL
• Host name of the accessing computer
• Time of the server request
• IP address
This data is processed to ensure you connect to the website seamlessly, can comfortably use our website, to analyze system security and stability and for other administrative purposes. This data will not be merged with other data sources.
This data processing is legally governed by Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
If you send a request to a bulthaup partner via the “contact form” page, we will transmit your request and the data notified with it to the bulthaup partner. This will be done only for the purposes stated in the declaration of consent.
The declaration of consent which you can provide in these forms (but do not have to) has the following content:
Consent regarding data protection legislation:
Data Privacy Notice:
I agree to my above request and the data notified with it being transmitted by Bulthaup GmbH & Co KG as controller to the bulthaup partner stated in the legal information and to them being stored and used by bulthaup and the relevant partner for the purposes of responding to my request by e-mail and of sending bulthaup product information and associated service offerings by post, as well as for market research purposes.
Please note: Without your consent, your request will not receive a response. The data provided in the contact form will be processed on the basis of your consent (Article 6 (1) lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the processing and use of your data for the specified purposes at any time. Please direct any revocation to Bulthaup GmbH & Co KG, FAO Data Protection, 84155 Aich, Germany or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will inform the relevant partner of your revocation.
The data which you input in these contact forms will remain stored until you ask us to delete them or until you revoke your consent with regard to storage.
3. Social media
Sharing content via plug-ins (Facebook, Pinterest)
So-called “social plug-ins” are used on our website to raise awareness of our company pursuant to Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We currently use plug-ins from Facebook and Pinterest. Data, including personal data, may be sent via these plug-ins to service providers in the USA and potentially used by these service providers.
bulthaup does not collect any personal data via the social plug-ins or any personal data about the use of plug-ins. A program prevents data from being transmitted to the service provider in the USA without the user’s knowledge. This solution ensures that for the moment, no personal data is transferred to the provider of the social plug-in when you visit bulthaup’s websites. Data can only be transmitted to the service provider and stored there if you click on one of the social plug-ins.
Access by the service provider
The service provider then receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. This happens regardless of whether you have an account with the service provider and whether you are logged in. If you are logged in to the service provider this will be directly assigned to your account. If you click on one of the social plug-ins and, for example, link this website, the service provider will also store this information in your user account and publicly share this association.
If you do not wish this assignment to your profile with the service provider you must log out before clicking on one of the social plug-ins.
Service providers’ details
More information about how the service providers deal with data protection can be found on their websites:
Facebook Inc., 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA

Google Analytics remarketing
Our websites also use the functions of Google Analytics remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. These are provided by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, California 94043, USA.
This function enables advertising target groups created by Google Analytics remarketing to be linked with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. Accordingly, interest-related and personalized adverts are shown, which have been adapted in accordance with your previous usage behavior and surfing habits on one device (e.g. cellphone) and also shown on another of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).
If you have provided the appropriate consent, Google will link your web and app browser histories with your Google account. This allows every device which you log in to with your Google account to have the same personalized adverts shown.
To support this function, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated user IDs, which are temporarily linked to your Google Analytics data to define and create target groups for cross-device advertising.
You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing/targeting by deactivating personalized advertising in your Google account. Please visit the following to do so: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
A potential summary of the data collected in your Google account is only carried out on the basis of your consent, which you can provide to or withdraw from Google (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
