Unless specified otherwise, provision of your personal data is not necessary either in law or as per the contract, nor is it required to conclude a contract. You are not obliged to provide such data. Failure to provide data will not result in any consequences. This applies to the following processing operations only if not expressly stated otherwise.
“Personal data” refers to any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
Server log files
You can visit our website without giving any information about yourself.
Every time our website is visited, your Internet browser transfers usage data to us or our web hosting service / IT service provider every time, which is stored in server log files. Such stored data includes, for example, the name of the accessed page, the date and time at which it was called, the IP address, the transferred data volume and the requesting provider. Processing takes place based on the provisions of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR due to our justified and overriding interest in ensuring that our website functions properly as well as to improve our services.
Contact us on request. You can find the contact details for those responsible for data processing in our imprint.
Speculative contact by the customer via email
If you contact us speculatively by email, then we only collect the personal data (name, email address, message text) that you have made available to us. Data processing takes place merely to handle and to answer your contract enquiry.
If establishing contact enables pre-contractual measures (such as providing advice if there is interest to buy, tendering) to be performed, or if there is already an agreement in place between yourself and us, then such data processing takes place based on the provisions of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR.
If contact takes place due to other reasons, then processing takes place based on the provisions of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR due to our justified and overriding interest in handling and answering your enquiry. In this case, you have the right at any time to rescind permission to such processing of your personal data as per the provisions of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR based on grounds resulting from your particular situation.
We only use your email address to respond to your request. Your data is then deleted in accordance with statutory storage periods, provided that you have not agreed to further processing and usage of said data.

Use of consent managers
We use Consentmanager, a consent management tool from Jaohawi AB (Håltegelvägen 1b, 72348 Västerås, Sweden, hereafter referred to as “consent manager”) on our website.
This tool enables you to issue consent for data processing via the website, particularly the setting of cookies, as well as enabling you to revoke permission that has been granted beforehand.
The purpose of data processing is to obtain and also document the necessary permissions within data processing in order to comply with statutory obligations.
Cookies can be used for this purpose. Amongst other things, the following information can be collected and transferred to the consent manager in the process: Date and time at which the page was called, information about the browser and device you use, the anonymised IP address, opt-in and opt-out data. This data is not passed on to other third parties.
Processing of data is carried out to ensure fulfillment of legal obligations (based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR).

Plug-ins and other matters
Use of Google Maps
We use a function for integrating Google Maps from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereafter referred to as “Google“) on our website.
If you are usually resident within the European Economic Area or Switzerland, then Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for your data. Google Ireland Limited is therefore the Google affiliate that is responsible for processing your data as well as for complying with all applicable data protection legislation.
This function enables the visual presentation of geographical information and interactive maps. Data from website users is collected, processed and used by Google when accessing pages in which maps from Google Maps are integrated.
If necessary, your date is also transferred to the USA. There is no adequacy decision of the EU Commission for the USA. Data transmission takes place, amongst other things, based on standard contractual clauses as appropriate guarantees for protecting personal data. These can be viewed at: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks.
Rights of persons affected and storage period
Data is stored taking statutory retention periods into account, then deleted after this period has elapsed, unless you have consented to further processing and use.
Rights of the data subject
If the statutory requirements are met then you have the following rights according to Art. 15 to 20 GDPR: These are the right to access, rectification, deletion, to object to processing, and to data portability.
Furthermore, there is also a right of revocation to processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR that is based on the principles of Art. 6 para 1 lit. f GDPR as well as for processing for direct marketing purposes.
Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
You have the right in accordance with Art. 77 GDPR to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority for data protection if you believe that processing of your personal data is unlawful.
Right of revocation
If the processing of personal data stated at this point is based on our justified interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR, then you have the right to revoke permission for such processing in the future based on grounds resulting from your particular situation.
After exercising your right to object, the data in question will not be processed for these purposes unless we can demonstrate compelling and legitimate reasons for this processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if processing aids the assertion, exercising or defence of legal claims.
