Protecting your personal data is very important to us.

Purposes and legal basis

We only collect and use personal data of our users if it is necessary to do so for the purpose of providing a functional website as well as our contents and services and for the needs-based design and enhancement of our service package. This also constitutes our legitimate interest in data processing.

If we obtain approval from the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para 1 lit. a of the GDPR will serve as the legal basis.

For the processing of personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR will serve as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation, to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para 1 lit. c of the GDPR will serve as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or a third party, which are not overridden by the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR will serve as the legal basis for the processing.

If the TMA is applicable for the collection and use of personal data necessary for providing our service package, the processing of personal data will be based on Sections 12 and 15 of the TMA.


ALDI SOUTH commissions service providers who help us provide the technical infrastructure, design our websites and perform our services and may thus have access to your personal data.

In order to process your enquiries or commissioned services, it may become necessary to forward your personal data to contractual partners or suppliers of ALDI SOUTH. More detailed information is provided in the relevant modules.

Storage period

Your personal data will be deleted or blocked if and as soon as the purpose of storage as well as any statutory storage periods no longer apply. Data will also be blocked or deleted if the stipulated storage period expires due to the above-mentioned standards unless it is necessary to save the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

Data subject rights

You may assert your right to request access to personal data and rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing concerning your data as well as the right to data portability provided that the prerequisites in accordance with Art. 15 et seq. of the GDPR are met.

If you wish to assert any of these rights, please contact:

If you have previously expressed consent to processing, you may revoke your consent to data processing for future purposes at any time. More detailed information is provided in the sections below.

Data security

We take technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data from loss, unauthorised access and misuse. Your information is transmitted in encrypted form.
