Note on the responsible body
The responsible body for data processing on this website is:
The District Administrator
Düsseldorfer Strasse 26
Phone: + 49 (0) 2104 99 0
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent that you have already given at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing that took place up until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which our authority is based. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses an SSL or. TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data at any time. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.
Objection to advertising mails
We hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of website legal notice requirements with regard to sending promotional and informational materials not expressly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take specific legal action if unsolicited advertising material, such as email spam, is received.
Statutory data protection officer
We have appointed a data protection officer for our authority.
The District Administrator
Data protection officer

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you want are stored on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analyzing your surfing behavior) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- - Operating system used
- - Referrer URL
- - Host name of the accessing computer
- - Time of the server request
- IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 GDPR.
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations that took place up until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
Processing of personal data
Article 6 I letter a GDPR serves the district administration as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations which are necessary for an authorization or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I letter b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries about our services.
If Kreis Mettmann is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Article 6 I letter c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data could become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in the administration and his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Article 6 I letter d GDPR.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Article 6 I letter f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of the district administration or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 DSGVO). If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our authority or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the first interest, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
Personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.
Data transfer at the conclusion of the contract for services and digital content
We only transfer personal data to third parties if this is necessary in the course of the contract processing, for example to the credit institution commissioned with payment processing.
A further transmission of the data is not possible or only if you have expressly agreed to the transmission. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without express consent, for example for advertising purposes.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Use of Facebook Custom Audiences (so-called Facebook Pixel)
Furthermore, we use the so-called “Facebook pixel” from Facebook Inc. (“Facebook”) on our website. This allows users of our website to see interest-based advertisements (“Facebook ads”) when they visit the social network Facebook or other websites that also use the process.
With the help of the Facebook pixel, we are able to check the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns. With the Facebook pixel, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Facebook through the use of this tool and are therefore informing you according to our state of knowledge:
The purpose of using a Facebook pixel is to only display the Facebook ads we have placed to users who have shown an interest in our website. In this way we want to prevent them from being a nuisance. By using the Facebook pixel, Facebook receives information that you have clicked on one of our ads on the Internet. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook will assign your behavior to the account. Regardless of an account, it is possible for the provider to find out and store your IP address and other identifiers.
The data collected about you in this context will be processed by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. Facebook describes in general terms what information Facebook receives and how it is used in its data usage guidelines. There you will also find information about how to contact Facebook and how to set up advertisements.
The data usage guidelines are available at the following link:
