Cetonis GmbH
represented by Dr Wolfgang Dannhorn, Management Board


The controller for data processing activities on this website is:
Dr Wolfgang Dannhorn
Cetonis GmbH
Reutlinger Str. 30
70597 Stuttgart

The controller decides on the purposes and means of personal data processing (e.g. name, contact details, etc.) either alone or jointly with others.


If specific legal issues are concerned we‘ll work with an employment law chancellery that will directly counsel you.


The content of our website was created with the greatest of care. However, we cannot guarantee that the content is correct, complete or up to date. As a service provider, pursuant to section 7, paragraph 1, of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), we are responsible under general law for content belonging to us on this website. However, pursuant to sections 8 to 10 of the TMG, as a service provider we are not obliged
to monitor or under certain circumstances investigate transmitted or stored third-party information that indicates an illegal activity. This does not affect our obligations to remove or prevent the use of information under general law. However, we can only be held liable in this regard after becoming aware of a specific infringement of the law. If we do become aware of such an infringement, we shall immediately remove the content in question.


Some data processing activities can only be carried out with your express consent. You can revoke consent that you have already granted at any time. Informal notification by email is sufficient for revocation. The lawfulness of data processing carried out until such time that you revoke your consent remains unaffected by said revocation.


Third parties are hereby expressly prohibited from using the contact data published as part of our duty to provide legal information in order to send us promotional material and information that we have not expressly requested. If sent unsolicited promotional material, including in spam emails, Cetonis GmbH reserves the right to take legal action.


In the event of a breach of data protection law, you as the data subject have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority with regard to data protection issues is the State Data Protection Officer in the federal state that our company’s headquarters are located in. The following link provides a list of the data protection officers and their contact details:­node.html.


You have the right to have data that we process automatically based on your consent or to perform a contract handed over to yourself or a third party in a machine-readable format. If you request that your data be directly transferred to another controller, this shall only be done to the extent technically feasible.


In the context of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right – at any time – to free information about the personal data stored about you, its origin, the recipients and the purpose of data processing, as well as a right to rectify, block or erase the same data if necessary. Please do not hesitate to contact us using the details provided in the imprint regarding this matter and if you have any other questions relating to the topic of personal data.


Our website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as the site operator. This means that the data you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. An encrypted connection is recognisable by the ‘https://’, your browser’s address bar and the padlock icon in the browser bar.


The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in server log files. This information includes:

  • The browser type and browser version
  • The operating system used
  • The referrer URL
  • The host name of the accessing computer
  • The time of the server enquiry
  • The IP address

This data is not combined with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b of the GDPR, which permits data processing for the performance of a contract or the implementation of pre-contractual measures.


Data transmitted using the contact form, including your contact details, is stored for the purposes of processing your enquiry or for providing answers to follow-up questions. This data is not disclosed without your consent.

The data entered in the contact form is processed exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. a of the GDPR). You can revoke consent that you have already granted at any time. Informal notification by email is sufficient for revocation. The lawfulness of data processing carried out until such time that you revoke your consent remains unaffected by said revocation.

We store data transmitted using the contact form on our systems until you request that we erase the same, revoke your consent to storage or there is no longer any need to store the data. Mandatory statutory provisions – particularly retention periods – remain unaffected.

Our website uses Google Analytics, which is a Web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

IP anonymisation

We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymisation function, which guarantees that Google will truncate your IP address before transmission to the USA within member states of the European Union or other states which are signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on our behalf for the purposes of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activities and providing us with other services relating to website and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google.

Google Analytics’ demographic features
Our website uses the ‘demographic features’ function provided by Google Analytics. It can be used to compile reports. including statements on the age, gender and interests of visitors to the website. This data comes from Google’s interest-based advertising and visitor data supplied by third-party providers. Data cannot be allocated to an identified person.
