We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat them confidentially and in accordance with the statutory privacy regulations as well as with the privacy declaration.
Our website can generally be used without giving personal data. If personal data (such as name, address or e-mail address) are asked for, this is done – as far as possible – on a voluntary basis. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.
We would like to point out that the data transfer on the Internet (e. g. in e-mail communication) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

Your rights as a person concerned
We would like to inform you about your rights as a person concerned. These rights are standardized in sections 15 - 22 EU-DS-GVO, which comprise:
- The right to demand information (section 15 EU-DS-GVO),
- The right to deletion (section 17 EU-DS-GVO),
- The right to rectification (section 16 EU-DS-GVO),
- The right to portability (section 20 EU-DSGVO),
- The right to restriction of data processing (section 18 EU-DS-GVO),
- The right to object to the processing of data (section 21 EU-DS-GVO).
Rights to object
Please note the following regarding rights to object:
If we process your personal data for the use of direct advertising, you have the right to object to this data processing any time and without giving reasons. This also applies to profiling, as far as it is related to direct advertising.
In case we process your data for the safeguarding of legitimate interests, you can always object to this processing for reasons that arise from your special situation; this also applies to profiling based on these regulations.
We will then refrain from processing your personal data, unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection which predominate your interests, rights and liberties, or if the processing contributes to the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
Objects and legal grounds of data processing
When processing your personal data the regulations of the EU DS-GVO, the BDSG (new) and all other applicable provisions regarding data protection will be kept. Legal grounds for data processing especially arise from section 6 EU-DS-GVO.
We will use your data for complying with legal and judicial duties, for performing the contract, for offering products and services as well as for reinforcing the customer relationship, which can also include analyses for marketing purposes and direct advertising.
Your consent also represents a licensing requirement in terms of the data protection law. In this connection, we inform you of the purposes of data processing and of your right of withdrawal. Should the consent also refer to the processing of special categories of personal data, we will explicitly inform you of it in the consent, section 88 par. 1 EU-DS-GVO in conjunction with § 26 par. 3 BDSG (new).
A processing of special categories of personal data shall only happen in terms of section 9 par. 1 EU-DS-GVO, if this is required by legal regulations and there is no reason to assume that your legitimate interest in an exclusion of the processing prevails, section 88 par. 1 EU-DS-GVO in conjunction with § 26 par. 3 BDSG (new).
Disclosure to third parties
We will disclose your data only pursuant to the statutory provisions or after respective consent. Apart from that, data will not be disclosed to third parties, unless we are required by mandatory provisions to do so (e. g. disclosure to external authorities such as supervisory authorities or prosecuting authorities).
Data recipients / categories of data recipients
We make sure in our company that only those people receive your data who need them to carry out contractual and statutory duties.
Data transfer to third countries / intention of data transfer to third countries
Data will not be transferred to third countries (outside the EU respectively the European economic area) unless it is required for carrying out an obligation, or if it is legally required or if you have consented to it.
Maximum storage time of data
We will store your data as long as they will be required for the individual processing purpose. Please note that due to several storage periods data will (must) be stored longer. This especially concerns duties to store data under commercial and tax law (e. g. the code of commercial law, tax code etc.). As far as there are no further duties to store data, the data will be deleted as a matter of routine, once they have served their purpose.
Furthermore, we may keep data if you have consented to this or if it comes to a legal dispute and we use means of evidence within the scope of statutory periods of limitation, which can last up to thirty years. The regular statutory period of limitation is three years.
Safe transmission of your data / SSL encryption
To ensure best possible protection of the data stored by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons we use adequate technical and organizational safety precautions. The security levels are constantly checked and adapted to new safety standards in cooperation with security experts.
The data exchange from and to our website always happens with an encryption system. We offer HTTPS as transmission control protocol for our website, always by using the current encryption protocols. Furthermore, we offer our users a content encryption within the scope of the contact forms. The data can only be decrypted by us. Besides, alternative channels of communication can be used (e. g. by post).
Obligation to provide data
Various personal data are required for the establishment, implementation and termination of a contractual relationship and the performance of the related contractual and legal obligations. The same applies to the use of our website and the various functions provided by it.
Details on this have been summarized in the above-mentioned item. In certain cases data have to be collected or provided due to statutory regulations. Please note that a processing of your enquiry or the implementation of the underlying contractual relationship is not possible without provision of these data.
Categories, sources and origin of the data
The individual context determines what data we process. This depends on whether you enter an enquiry in our contact form, if you send us an application, if you request printed matter or file any other kind of enquiry.
If you visit our website, we collect and process the following data:
- Name of the Internet service provider
- Information about the website from where you visit us
- Web browser and operating system used
- The IP address assigned by your Internet service provider
- Requested data, volume of data transmission, downloads/data export
- Information about the websites you call up with date and time
- Cookies (see item "Cookies")
- These data are stored according to section 6 par. 1 lit. F EU-DS-GVO for reasons of technical security (especially in order to defend attempts to attack our web server). After 7 days at the latest an anonymization of the IP address takes place so that no reference to the user will be made.
The following data will be collected and processed within the scope of a contact request:
- Family name, first name, company
- Contact data (address, country, phone, e-mail)
- Information about the request (enquiry about spare parts or printed matter)
We will be pleased if you send us an application, for which you provide your personal data that are usual for an application. You can do this by post or e-mail, too, if you wish.
You will then consent to the processing and transmission of your data by us exclusively for the purpose of the application process. The data transmitted by you will be collected, processed and used exclusively for the purpose of the processing of your application. Your data will be treated confidentially and not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent.
After completion of the application process or if you withdraw your application, the data transmitted within the scope of the application will be deleted according to the respective applicable regulations.
If we cannot offer you a currently adequate job and if we deem it possible that your application could be of interest to us at a later point of time, we will be pleased to offer you to keep your application stored. However, we will ask you by separate e-mail or post for your permission to do so. You can contradict to the collection any time, which will lead to an immediate and irrevocable deletion of your data.
Links to other providers
Our website also contains – clearly marked – links to the Internet presence of other companies. As far as links to other websites exist, we do not have any influence on their content. Therefore, we cannot take over any warranty and liability for this content, which is the responsibility of the respective provider or operator of the sites.
The linked sites were checked for possible statutory violation and infringement at the time of linking. Illegal content could not be made out at the time of linking. Permanent control of the content of the linked site without concrete evidence of an infringement is not reasonable. As soon as such infringement gets known, such links will be removed immediately.
User profiles / web tracking methods
Analysis programs and other technology for the evaluation of your user behaviour will not be used on our website.
Contact form / contacting by e-mail
We have a contact form on our website, which can be used for contacting us electronically. If you write to us via the contact form, we will process the data provided to us via the contact form for contacting you and for answering your questions and requests.
Based on the principle of data reduction and data economy, you will only give those data that are indispensable for contacting. These are your e-mail address and the message field itself. In addition your IP address will be processed for the technical necessity and legal protection. All other fields are voluntary and can be entered optionally (e. g. to answer your questions more individually).
If you contact us by e-mail, we will process your personal data mentioned in the e-mail only for the purpose of processing your enquiry. If you do not use the contact forms, there will be no additional data collection beyond that.
