What data are we talking about?

When data processing is mentioned, it generally refers to personal data. Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable person.

Why are personal data processed?

This is particularly the case if the data processing is necessary for the provision of our contractual services or for the use of our online services and/or is required by law. In addition, we process your personal data if we have your consent or if we have a legitimate interest in the processing (e.g. interest in the analysis, optimization, economic operation, security of our online offering, in particular in the case of reach measurement as well as collection of access data and use of the services of third-party providers)

When and to what extent do we process personal data?

Below you will find an overview of all processes in which your personal data is collected and processed.

This section shows the technologies used by BB Wertmetall AG and how they are used.


Our digital offers can generally be used without accepting cookies. Cookies help to make your visit to our website easier, more pleasant and more meaningful. Cookies are information files that your web browser automatically stores on your computer’s hard drive when you visit our website.

Cookies do not damage your computer’s hard drive, nor do they transmit users’ personal data to us. We use cookies, for example, to track who has visited our website and to deduce how frequently certain pages or offers are visited and to generally survey how the website is used.

Most Internet browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser at any time so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a message always appears when you receive a new cookie.

We use the “Privacy Content” option from Avada. This creates a cookie called “privacy_embeds” to store and manage user consent from third-party cookies and scripts.

Tracking and web analysis tools

This website uses the web analytics software Matomo (, a service provided by InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, (hereinafter “Matomo“) on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing purposes pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO data collected and stored.

Pseudonymized usage profiles can be created and evaluated from this data for the same purpose. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the Internet browser of the user of the website. Among other things, the cookies allow the recognition of the Internet browser. The data collected using Matomo technology (including your pseudonymized IP address) is processed on our servers.

The information generated by the cookie in the pseudonymous user profile is not used to personally identify the users of this website and is not merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym.

If you do not agree with the storage and evaluation of this data from your visit, then you can object to the storage and use at any time by mouse click. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is placed in your browser, which means that Matomo does not collect any session data. Please note that the complete deletion of your cookies means that the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and may need to be reactivated by you.

Transfer of personal data to KYC Spider

We would like to inform you that we transmit personal data of customers to KYC Spider in order to carry out an audit in accordance with the Money Laundering Act (GwG). This data includes your name, birthday, nationality, address, telephone number and e-mail address.

The AMLA check takes place for each customer created through our application route. Please note that if you select “Online Legitimation” in the onboarding process, all your data will be transferred to KYC Spider in the form of the application PDF, including all included forms. When performing legitimation via KYC Spider, the images taken in the process (photos of the ID card and face) are also stored.

We would like to inform you that KYC Spider, as our processor, is obliged to protect your data in accordance with the applicable data protection laws and to use it only for the purpose of the AMLA audit.

Opt-Out iFrame:

You may choose to prevent this website from aggregating and analyzing the actions you take here. Doing so will protect your privacy, but will also prevent the owner from learning from your actions and creating a better experience for you and other users.

The IP addresses are immediately anonymized by Matomo, thus an identification of the users of this website is not possible. The anonymous statistical data is stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a specific person.

In addition, the “Do not track” function is activated in the Matomo installation. If your browser supports this function and you have activated the function in the browser settings, no data will be collected by Matomo, even if you do not use the above-mentioned deactivation cookie.

Data collection when accessing our website

Every access to our internet offers as well as every retrieval of a file is stored and processed in a log file for a limited period of time (exclusively for defense and tracking of security-relevant accesses as well as for error analysis and statistical purposes).

The following information will be stored:

  • Date and time of your access
  • Your IP address, anonymized in shortened form
  • Browser type and version
  • the operating system used
  • the website from which you visited us
  • Pages and files that you access on our website
  • the website you visit after our website (when clicking on an external link on our website)
  • anonymized IP address of the users of this website.

The IP address identifies the user of Internet services and thus falls under the Data Protection Act. On this page, users’ IP addresses are transmitted to the Analytics tool in anonymized form (the last bytes of the IP address). In this respect, an assignment to a natural person is no longer possible.

Registration and comment function

WordPress as a blog system offers multiple functions of commenting on pages and blog entries.

BB Wertmetall AG has deactivated this function as a matter of principle. It is not possible for any user of this website to register for a comment function on the website. Thus, no comments are allowed and possible. This makes the website more secure and protects users from unauthorized disclosure of personal data.

Use of additional programs (plugins) and integration of third-party offers

Our digital offerings are sometimes networked with third-party functions and systems. This concerns, for example, the contact and application form.

BB Wertmetall AG expressly does not use any social media applications. This way we can exclude that personal data can be transmitted to such services.

The following plugins are used on the website of BB Wertmetall AG:
