Thank you very much for visiting our website and for your interest in our company. Protecting your data is extremely important to us. With the following data privacy information, we want to inform you about the purposes for which and the scope to which we collect and process your personal data when  you use our website, and how we work to protect your privacy when you provide your data to us.

Data controller

Wilhelm Ewe GmbH & Co. KG (Volkmaroder Straße 19, 38104 Braunschweig, Tel.: 0531 3700554, E-mail: is the operator of this website and the data controller in the sense of Art. 4 para. 7 GDPR and responsible for compliance with applicable data privacy regulations.
We save and process the personal data of our users in compliance with relevant regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG) in their current valid versions. All personal data is only collected for defined, clear, and legal purposes and is not saved longer than necessary.

Personal data

Personal data includes individual details about personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person (such as a name, date of birth, and contact information).


Generally, you can use our websites without providing any personal data. However, you may need to provide your data to use to use certain functions of our website. Therefore, if you do not provide your data, this may restrict your use of our website.
When you visit our websites, our web server temporarily saves a log file on every access. The following data may be captured and saved until it is automatically deleted: your IP address, the date and time of access, the quantity of data transmitted, a notification that the website has been accessed, detection data on the browser and operating system you are using, the website from which you access our site and the IP address of your internet service provider. This data is processed so that you can use our website, for the purpose of system security, technical administration of the network infrastructure, and to optimise our web services. This is considered a legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 lit. f GDPR.

Other data capturing

We collect, save, and process your personal data (such as first name, last name, address, e-mail address, telephone number) if you request that we initiate a business relationship, for instance in relation to a subscription or an order, and to determine the content of or change the business relationship. In addition, we use your personal data if you have provided it to us to register for our website and have consented to processing of your personal data. Furthermore, we collect, save, and process your personal data if you contact us via the contact form or by sending an e-mail, if this is necessary to process your inquiry and correspondence. The personal data we collect is deleted promptly once we no longer need it for this purpose, unless statutory retention periods apply. Providing your personal data is voluntary.

Transmission of data

We use your personal data within the company Wilhelm Ewe GmbH & Co. KG. Our external service providers who process data on our behalf are contractually obligated in the sense of Art. 28 GDPR to handle your personal data in accordance with applicable regulations. If these companies access your personal data, we have taken legal, technical, and organizational measures and carry out regular controls to ensure that they comply with the regulations of data privacy law.

If you find partner services on our website, you may access these directly from the respective partners. These include services by third party providers managed by these providers. Our data privacy provisions do not apply to such services. We reserve the right to transmit your personal data to entities which are entitled to this information, if we are legally obligated to do so or have been ordered to do so by a court of law.

We do not transmit your personal data to other third parties.


We only  use necessary cookies on our homepage.
These are essential for the user experience on our homepage and can not be deactivated.
The cookies are used to store your cookie settings, preferred language, the items of your most recent shopping bag and form fields.
The cookies we use are temporary and are deleted regularly.
You can manage your cookie settings in your browser or block cookies. You can also delete any cookies that have been saved at any time. Please see your selected browser to determine how to deactivate cookies through changing browser settings. If you do not accept cookies, in some cases this may restrict your use of our website.
We recommend that you regularly manually delete cookies and your browser history.

Social Plug-ins

Our websites use social plug-ins from various social network providers. When you access one of our websites that contains such a plug-in, the content of the plug-in is transmitted directly to your browser. We offer you the option of interacting directly with our posts via the comment function using social plug-ins.

If you click a social media plug-in, you will be sent directly to the relevant social network on our website and your data will be transmitted to the server of the social network provider. This data includes, for instance, your IP address, the date and time of access, detection data on the browser and operating system used, and the website from which you access our page.

We would like to note that we have no influence over the scope of data processing carried out by the providers of these social networks. Please see the provider's data privacy guidelines to determine the purpose, type, and scope of data collection and how data is processed and used.


The following social plug-ins are available on our website:


YouTube plug-ins on our websites are operated by YouTube, LLC., 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066 USA. YouTube plug-ins are identified by the YouTube logo. If you use one of these plug-ins, your browser makes direct contact with YouTube and your information is transmitted directly to a YouTube server. If you are also logged into YouTube when you visit our website, YouTube can directly associate your visit to your account. If you submit a comment or press the YouTube button, this information is also transmitted to a YouTube server and saved by it in the USA. In addition, your YouTube interaction is published directly on YouTube and may be visible to third parties. If you are not interested in this kind of interaction, you are responsible for logging out of YouTube before visiting our website and using a “script blocker” to prevent the YouTube plug-in from loading on our site. Please see the YouTube data privacy guidelines to determine the purpose and scope of data collection and how data is processed and used.

Google Maps

We use Google Maps API, a service of Google Inc. to visually display geographic information. The information generated by Google Maps API is generally sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google can transmit information generated through the use of Google Maps to third parties if third parties process this data on behalf of Google or if this is legally permissible or required. The IP address communicated by your browser while you use Google Maps will not be merged with other data by Google. However, it is technically possible for Google to process the data received for other purposes or to identify individual users without Wilhelm Ewe GmbH & Co. KG having any influence over this process. Because of this, using Google Maps is problematic from a data privacy law standpoint.

However, you can prevent data from being transmitted to Google by deactivating the Google Maps service by deactivating the JavaScript function in your browser. However, if you do so you will not be able to display maps.

If you use our website and have the JavaScript function active, you expressly declare your consent to have your collected data processed by Google Inc. in the manner described above and for the purposes indicated, and declare that you are aware of the data privacy law issues related to such processing.

Company: GOOGLE INC.,1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA

Further information on the Google Maps terms of use is available at and in the Google privacy policy
