Purpose of data processing:

This section provides you with information on the type of data collected and for what purpose.

1.    Automated data processing / data disclosure

When visiting our website, data are processed – for technical reasons – by automatic means which, however, precludes all identification tracing of the person concerned, i.e. you as a person. These data are stored in server log files and processed on an anonymous basis purely for statistical purposes. The contents of the data include among other things information with regard to the time of access, the browser used, the Referrer URL (website previously visited) and other information (purely of a technical nature) on your hardware as well as the operating system you use along with browser information. Such data are not disclosed to third parties.

2.    Collection of personal data

Personal information data are processed solely for order-handling operations and the implementation of contractual procedures.

Processing of personal data only takes place in the course of making enquiries or handling of contract issues previously sent to us by the person concerned or a third-party commissioned by that person, e.g. for compiling an offer or bid.
Where you transmit your personal data to us or have already done so, we assure you that these will not be disclosed to third parties unless required for executing the order or if such disclosure is stipulated by law.

Security warning concerning transfer of data on the Internet

Notwithstanding all technical and organisational security measures, no 100% guarantee can be assumed for safety in processing your personal data via our website. For that reason, we would advise you to forward all highly sensitive data by post or communicate these to us by phone where required for executing our orders.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

The processing of personal data takes place primarily on the basis of Article 6, Paragraph 1 lit. b of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) applicable to the performance of contractual agreements or pre-contractual measures. Alternatively, within a non-contractual framework where this involves explicit consent of the person concerned, this proceeds in accordance with Article 6, Paragraph 1 lit. a of the General Data Protection Regulations.

Duration of data storage

Personal data are stored by us in connection with contractual processing in accordance with the statutory stipulations governing data retention periods. In the case of a further contact maintenance, such personal data are deleted observing a period of notice of 8 years after transaction-related correspondence has finally taken place. An exception to this is a desire for deletion expressed by the person concerned which is carried out directly unless precluded by a legal ruling pursuant to a request made by a government agency.

Disclosure of personal data to third parties – Categories of Recipients

Personal data are only disclosed to third parties to the extent that is absolutely necessary for fulfilling our contractual obligations towards the person concerned. For example it may be necessary to resort to the services of one or more subcontractors in order to fulfil specific parts of the contract, a circumstance necessitating disclosure of that person’s name and address.

Your rights as a person concerned

The following information serves to provide enlightenment with regard to your rights as a person concerned in pursuance of the data protection regulations stipulated in the GDPR and BDSG.

We endeavour to comply with your legal rights in every respect and would kindly ask you to bear in mind when requesting information or enquiring about the deletion or rectification of an entry that it may take some time to deal with your request; nevertheless, we will do our best to process your enquiry within the timeframe of 4 weeks permitted by law.

As a person concerned you have the right to obtain free information on your data stored by us whenever desired. In the course of furnishing this information we will notify you concerning the purpose of data storage as well as the nature and extent of all personal data and, where necessary, the recipients and reasons for data disclosure.
In addition, as a person concerned, you are entitled to issue a request for us to rectify or delete your personal data which we will of course be glad to comply with where this is legally justifiable.
You are entitled to object to your future personal data being processed or to revoke any such consent you have given. Options with regard to such objection or revocation will be gathered from the regulations stipulated in the GDPR.
Should you wish to receive your data stored by us in accordance with the rights on transferability, we will provide you with the said data in a CSV file owing to there being no standardised format for this purpose. We abstain from automatic decision-making or profiling.

Identity verification for the protection of persons concerned

In order to prevent the misuse of personal data by unauthorised third parties we apply suitable means for performing a verification procedure to establish the identity of the person concerned, this comprising an information request, a deletion or rectification request and the transfer of personal data.

Right to lodge complaints with the data protection supervisory authority

If you are of the opinion that, despite all due diligence, we have not acted correctly and/or have not processed your personal data properly or have handled the same in an unjustified manner, we would kindly request you to provide relevant notification to, or file an objection with our Data Protection Officer – Sylvana Schreiber – whose contact data will be found in the introductory section of this data privacy statement.
Notwithstanding the above, you – as the person concerned – are entitled to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection supervisory authority responsible for us.

Our website makes use of a web analytics tool marketed by Google Inc. headquartered in 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics facilitates the collection and analysis of data of visitors to our website. In addition to the IP address, technical information is collected – as for example the browser and operating system used as well as hardware-specific data – this being transmitted to, and stored on a Goggle server in the USA.

We apply Google Analytics in accordance with the European data protection directives and German privacy legislation. Apart from anonymization of the IP address, use is made of an OptIn function for activating the Google Analytics tool.

Thus no processing of your data takes place without your consent.

Your consent is kindly requested in order for us to activate Google Analytics as this supports our products and services as well as improving our internet presence.

We guarantee responsible-minded handling of the data gathered via our Google Analytics account and have set our Google Analytics tool to deletion of the data thus collected after a period of 14 months. We will not disclose the data to third parties and Google provides the same assurance.
