When do we process person-related data?
We process person-related data that you actively transmit to us by means of your entries. In addition, we automatically process person-related data that is based on the use of our website. Thus, in particular in the following cases, your person-related data may be leased out:
- Visiting our website;
- Subscription to the email newsletter;
- Establishing contact with us;
- Analysis, why which visitors visit our website and how they use it;
- Warding off of attacks against our technical infrastructure;
For details, we kindly refer you to the following explanations.
Visiting our website
When accessing our website, apart from processing and storing technical information on the terminal device you use (operating system, screen resolution and other non-personal characteristics) and the browser (version, language settings), the company commissioned by us to operate the website processes and stores, in particular, the public IP address of the computer with which you visit our website, including the date and time of access. The IP address is a unique numerical address under which your terminal device sends data to or retrieves data from the Internet. Generally speaking, we or our service provider do not know who is behind an IP address, unless you provide us with data during the use of our website that enables us to identify you. Furthermore, a user may be identified when legal action is taken against him (e.g. attacks on our website), and when we become aware of his identity as part of the investigation proceedings. Therefore, generally speaking, you need not be concerned that we will be able to assign your IP address to you.
Our service provider does not relate the processed data to a person but uses it for statistical purposes, so that we can trace with which settings which terminal devices are used for visiting our website. This is done in order to optimise them when necessary. These statistics do not contain any person-related data. The legal basis for the compilation of statistics is Section 6 par. 1 f) GDPR.
The IP address will continue to be used so that you can technically access and use our website, in addition to detecting and allowing the defence against attacks against our service provider or our website. Unfortunately, attacks are launched time and again with the purpose of harming the operators of websites or their users (e.g. preventing access, spying on data, spreading malware (e.g. viruses) or for other unlawful purposes). Such attacks would impair the proper functioning of the computer centre of the company commissioned by us, our website's use or its functionality, as well as the security of persons visiting our website. The IP address and the time of access are processed to ward off such attacks. Through this processing, we pursue the legitimate interest of our service provider to ensure our website's functionality and to ward off illegal attacks against us and the visitors of our website. The legal basis of the processing is Section 6 par. 1 f) GDPR.
The stored IP data is deleted (by means of anonymisation) when it is no longer needed for the detection or warding off of an attack.
When you send us a message via one of the contact options offered, we will use the data you provide us to process your RFQ. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest in responding to your request in accordance with Section 6 par. 1 f) GDPR. When your RFQ serves the purpose of concluding a contract with us, another legal basis for processing is Section 6 (1) b) GDPR. The data will be deleted after your RFQ has been processed. When we are legally obliged to store data for a longer period of time, the data will be deleted after expiry of the corresponding storage period.
When you register for our email newsletter, your provided data will be processed for the creation and dispatch of the newsletter as well as for proof of registration for our newsletter, until such time as it is revoked. The legal basis for processing is Section 6 par. 1 f) GDPR. To send the newsletter, and in order to prove that you have really provided your consent, you must click on the confirmation link in the verification email that we will send you after your registration. By clicking on the corresponding link, we process the public IP address of the computer from which the link is accessed, in addition to the date and time of the click. We process this data to be able to provide proof that you have confirmed receipt of our email newsletter.
The legal basis of the processing is Section 6 par. 1 f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest in this is found in the fulfilment of our obligation to provide proof of your subscriptions.
You can revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter.
For this, you will find a link at the end of each newsletter.
When you unsubscribe from the newsletter, we will delete your data. After expiry of the statute of limitations for corresponding proof obligations, the data we require as proof that you have agreed to receive the newsletter will be deleted.
We use an external service provider who works for us as a contract processor for creating and sending our newsletter.
