Data Privacy

Data privacy / Imprint

We, TATONKA GmbH (as operator of the website) take the protection of your personal data and your privacy very seriously. In general you can use our website without leaving any personal data. However, to the extent that such data is collected, saved or used, this happens in accordance with the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (EU-DSGVO), Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), Telemedia Act (TMG) and other legal provisions. The following privacy statement describes the collection, storage and use of your personal data in connection with the use of the websites as well as measures for the protection of this data.

We reserve the right to adapt the content of this data protection declaration from time to time in order to ensure protection in the future, particularly in line with new legal requirements or technical developments. It is therefore recommended that you read our information and notes on data processing at regular intervals. Should you have any questions in connection with the collection, storage or use of personal data, please feel free to contact our Data Protection Officer at any time. The contact details for our data protection officer can be found below.

Acquisition of general information

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions about your person. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of websites requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

SSL Encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.


When you register to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers can also be informed by e-mail about circumstances relevant to the service or registration (for example, changes to the newsletter offer or technical conditions).

For an effective registration we need a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that a registration is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the “double-opt-in” procedure. For this purpose, we log the ordering of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the answer requested hereby. The indication of your first name is voluntary and will be requested for us in order to address you personally in the newsletter. Further data is not collected. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter.

For the dispatch we use the software of CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede. CleverReach is a service with which the newsletter dispatch can be organized and analyzed. The data you enter to subscribe to the newsletter (e.g. email address) is stored on the CleverReach servers in Germany and Ireland.

Our newsletters sent with CleverReach allow us to analyze the behavior of the newsletter recipients. Among other things, we can analyze how many recipients opened the newsletter message and how often which link in the newsletter was clicked on. With the help of the so-called conversion tracking, it can also be analyzed whether a predefined action (e.g. click on one of our products with forwarding on our website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. For further information on data analysis by CleverReach, please visit:

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

If you do not want CleverReach to analyze your data, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter. You can also unsubscribe from our newsletter by sending us an email message.

The data you provide us with for the purpose of subscribing to our newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of CleverReach after the newsletter has been cancelled. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for your customer account in our online shop) remain unaffected.

Catalogue order

When ordering our catalogue, personal data (first and last name, address and email address) are collected and stored. In addition, at the time of ordering, the IP address including the time of order is collected. The collection and use of this data serves exclusively for the processing of the catalogue order. The cancellation of the catalogue is possible at any time by sending an e-mail to


On some of our websites we offer you the possibility to leave comments on the individual contributions. The IP address of the author/addressee will be saved. This storage is for our security in case the author’s comment encroaches on the rights of third parties and/or illegal content is posted. Thus, there is a legitimate interest on our part in the stored data of the author, especially since we may be prosecuted for such legal violations. The data will not be passed on to third parties. A comparison of the data collected in this way with data that may have been collected by other components of our site is also not carried out.


If you take part in one of our competitions, we will use your details (e.g. name, e-mail address) to carry out the competition, in particular for information purposes and, if applicable, to send you a prize.

The legal basis for the processing is your consent given when you participate in the competition (Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO). Your data will be deleted when the respective competition has ended and the prizes have been distributed. Your data will only be used for other purposes, e.g. advertising, if you have given your explicit consent. Your data will only be passed on to third parties if a partner company is involved in the competition and needs your data e.g. for sending the prize. If a partner company is involved in the competition, we will clearly point this out in the conditions of participation in the competition.

Deletion or blocking of data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as required by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Embedded YouTube videos

On some of our websites we embed YouTube videos. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection is established to Youtube servers. This tells Youtube which pages you are visiting. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account first.

If a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.

If you’ve disabled cookies for the Google Ad program, you won’t be able to use cookies when watching Youtube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block cookies from being stored in your browser.
