The protection of your personal data is very important to us. This is to inform you about the type and scope of personal data we collect when you visit our web pages or social media sites.

As a company under private law, we are subject to the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telecommunications and Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG). We have taken both technical and organisational measures to ensure that the data protection regulations are observed not only by us but also by external service providers.
Please note that data transfer by Internet (e. g. email communication) may be subject to security breaches. It is not possible to completely protect your data from access by third parties.
We collect and use your personal data exclusively in accordance with the provisions of the data protection law of the Federal Republic of Germany. In the following we shall inform you about the nature, extent and purpose of the collection and use of personal data. You can retrieve this information at any time from our web site.

When you visit our website and each time you access a file, our web server or the page provider collects and stores information about these processes and stores these as “server log files“ (e.g. date and time of access, URL of the referring website, file accessed, amount of data sent, browser type and version, operating system and your IP address).

Any person concerned can contact our Data Protection Officer at any time for all questions or suggestions relating to data protection.
- Personal data
Personal data are information that can be used to establish personal or factual circumstances about you (e.g. name, address, telephone number, date of birth or email address). Information for which we can establish no reference to your person (or only with disproportionate expense or effort), e.g. through the anonymisation of the information, is not personal data.
Personal information such as your name, address, telephone number or email address are only collected if you provide us with such information voluntarily. In such cases we collect personal data exclusively in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations.
- Personal data in the contact form
On our website we offer you the opportunity to contact us by e-mail and/or via a contact form. Your personal data entered in the contact form (mandatory fields: Subject, title, surname, first name, e-mail, customer type (end user, dealer, press representative, authority/public institution), country; optional data: Phone, address) and your message will only be sent to us, stored and processed as encrypted e-mail (TLS-encrypted) for the intended purpose of processing your contact.
We will only process your data with your express consent. It will not be disclosed to anybody outside our Group. Nor will there be any cross-referencing of such data with data that may be collected by other components of our website.
- Personal Data in the Online Repair Form
The service form makes it possible for you to send us your repair enquiry online. The data entered by you are sent by email to a general UMAREX mailbox.

Device-specific repair history
Since the processing of your personal data is necessary in order to handle your enquiry and to fulfil the contract, e.g. for a shipment of goods or for pre-contractual measures in case of enquiries, these data are processed on the legal basis of Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR.
You can submit your application by post or email (
Initially, your data will only be used for the application procedure and to decide whether or not we will offer you a position.

All applications will remain with us for up to six months after conclusion of the selection process and will then be irretrievably deleted or fully returned to you. In case your application has aroused our interest although we cannot offer you a position at the time of application, we will request your express permission to retain your application data for a longer period to have it available for future job postings.
Your personal data will only be collected or processed by personnel responsible for handling your application. If you apply for a position with one of our group companies, your data will be forwarded to this company for this purpose.

- Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google“). Google Analytics uses “cookies“, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
However, as IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide the website operator with further services related to the use of the website and the Internet.

Note to external links
This website contains links to third-party websites (“external links“). These websites are subject to the liability of the respective operators. When linking the external links for the first time, the provider checked the external content for possible legal infringements. At that time, no legal violations were apparent. The provider has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and content of the linked pages. The setting of external links does not mean that the provider adopts the content behind the reference or link as his own. A permanent control of the external links is not reasonable for the provider without concrete indications of legal violations. However, if we become aware of any legal infringements, such external links will be deleted immediately.
- YouTube/ Cliplister

- Social Media
We create online presences within social networks to communicate with users and interested people who are active in those networks and to be able to inform them about us.
The providers of these services may process user data outside the European Union. This may result in user risks, as, for example, it may be difficult to enforce user rights.
The social media site you have visited allows you to react to our posts, comment them, create your own user post, or send us private messages with personal concerns. We will use any data you surrender in this context that may be available to us (e. g. username, images, possibly interests, contact data) only for the purpose of customer communication and communication catering to special interests. Our aim is to make a platform available that enables us to give you up-to-date information, allows you to inform us about your concern and makes it possible for us to address this concern as fast as possible.
We will not process the data via the site beyond its basic functions. Please note that the service provider may use tracking tools or cookies independently of our use of the site.
We will inform you about our processing your data in the context of the online presences made available by us. In its decision of 5 June 2018, the ECJ confirmed the joint responsibility of service provider and site operator.
For details on data processing and your options to object to it (opt-out) please refer to the information given by our service providers. For enquiries regarding information or for exercising of user rights, please note that these are best addressed at the service providers. Only the providers have access to user data and can take direct action and give information. If you need help regardless, feel free to contact us.

For uniform display of fonts, this page uses so-called Web Fonts made available by Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043. The entity responsible is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

- Legal basis for processing
Insofar as we obtain consent for certain processing operations, such consent is based on Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract, for example for a shipment of goods or for pre-contractual measures, e.g. for inquiries, such processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. If our company is subject to a legal obligation through which the processing of personal data is required, for example in order to fulfil tax obligations, such processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. If any processing of personal data is not based on any of the above-mentioned legal bases, we shall process data in order to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company (improvement in the conduct of business activity) according to Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. We always make sure that no legitimate interest of the person concerned which outweighs our legitimate interest is precluded.
- Duration for which the personal data are stored
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. At the end of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
If you send us an email through the contact form, your emails will be received by the corresponding mailboxes and will be archived there for an unlimited period.
We will use your data submitted for the newsletter until revoked by you so that we can inform you about news on an ongoing basis.
