The data processing is carried out for the purpose of initiating, implementing or terminating the contractual relationship pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter b) GDPR.

In addition, we process your data to protect our legitimate interests or those of a third party in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter f GDPR, e.g.
– Ensuring effective work force allocation, testing and optimisation of demand analysis procedures for the purpose of direct customer contact
– Assertion of legal claims and defence in legal disputes
– Ensuring IT security and operations
– Prevention and investigation of criminal offences
– Measures for building and facility security (e.g. access controls or video surveillance)
– Direct marketing measures, e.g. information to existing customers and business partners within the framework of §7 UWG (Unfair Competition Act)
– Business management and development measures
– Risk management within the company

Insofar as you have given us your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter a in connection with Art. 7 GDPR for the processing of your personal data, we will not be held liable. Art. 7 GDPR for the processing of personal data for specific purposes, the lawfulness of this processing is given on the basis of your consent. Consent given can be revoked at any time. Please note that the revocation only takes effect for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected by this.

In addition, as a company we are subject to legal obligations pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter c GDPR, such as the German Commercial Code or the German Fiscal Code. The purposes of the processing include, among others, measures for the fulfilment of control and reporting obligations under tax law as well as the assessment and management of risks.

Insofar as legal bases are mentioned in this information, these are authoritative for the processing of personal data in their respective version. Automatic profiling or automated decision-making is not planned and does not take place.

4.17.3 Recipients or categories of recipients
Your personal data will only be processed by us within the company so that the initiation, implementation and termination of the contractual relationship can take place. For this purpose, the necessary departments, such as purchasing, sales, export, shipping, financial accounting, customer service, workshop, supplier management, facility management or management are involved as required. In addition, the data may be passed on within the company if there is a legitimate interest on our part, such as marketing for direct marketing purposes or the IT department within the scope of maintenance and support activities.

Furthermore, order processors pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR are used who are responsible for the operation and maintenance of our network, the devices and applications used. Within the scope of the above-mentioned services for our customers and business partners, data is transmitted exclusively in accordance with the instructions of the respective person responsible.

In addition, personal data may be forwarded to third parties on an ad hoc basis, such as translation agencies, banks, customs, auditors, credit agencies, tax offices and insurance companies. If goods or documents have to be transported, your data will be passed on to transport service providers.

Information may only be passed on if
– legal regulations require this,
– you have given your consent,
– this is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract,
– order processors commissioned by us guarantee compliance with the requirements of the GDPR in the same way, or
– our legitimate interest, e.g. for the defence or implementation of legal claims by us or third parties, outweighs your interests, rights and freedoms. In this case, the transfer to legal advisors, debt collection or law enforcement agencies would regularly be lawful.

4.17.4 Transfer of personal data to third countries
Data is generally processed in data centres in the EU. If data is processed outside the EU, this will only be done if the third country has been confirmed by the EU Commission to have an adequate level of data protection or if other adequate data protection guarantees (in particular EU standard contractual clauses or binding internal company data protection regulations) are in place.

4.16.5 Duration of storage
To the extent necessary, we process your personal data for the duration of the business relationship. In addition, we are subject to various storage and documentation obligations resulting from the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO), among others. The retention and documentation periods specified there are two to ten years. The storage period also depends on the statutory limitation periods, which can be up to thirty years, for example, according to §§ 195 ff. of the German Civil Code (BGB), whereby the regular limitation period is three years.

As soon as the storage of the data is no longer necessary for the performance of the contractual relationship and there are no statutory retention periods or a justified interest on our part or on the part of third parties, your data will be deleted immediately. A legitimate interest may exist if the personal data is required for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. Storage may also take place if this is provided for or prescribed by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which we are subject.

5. Data subject rights
Insofar as your personal data is processed on the occasion of your visit to the website and when using the services, you are entitled to the following rights, which you can assert at the above-mentioned offices, if the legal requirements within the meaning of the GDPR are met:

If your personal data is not correct or incomplete, you may request the correction of incorrect information or the completion of incomplete information.

– Art. 17 GDPR: Right to deletion
Under the conditions of Art. 17 GDPR, you may request the deletion of your personal data.

– Art. 18 GDPR: Right to limitation of processing
You can request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. The right to limit the processing exists in the following cases:
– If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with the responsible person, the responsible person usually needs time to check this. For the duration of the verification, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
– If the processing of your personal data has taken place unlawfully, you may request that the data processing be restricted instead of deleted.
– If the controller no longer needs your personal data, but you need it for the exercise, defence or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.

– If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and those of the person responsible or third parties. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests predominate, you have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data be restricted.

– Art. 20 GDPR: Right to data transferability
You have the right to have data processed automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will only be done as far as it is technically feasible.

– Art. 21 GDPR: Right of objection
If data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 letter e (necessary processing carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority) or letter f (legitimate interest) GDPR, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which a processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you file an objection, the data controller will no longer process your personal data unless he can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. If your personal data are processed for the purpose of direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for direct marketing purposes.

– Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR: Right to revoke consent
You have the right to revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time with effect for the future. The revocation of your consent does not affect the legality of the processing, which took place on the basis of your consent up to the time of revocation.
