Protection des données

1. Responsible body, legal bases, purpose

With regard to all personal data that arises, we store and process the data in compliance with the relevant regulations on data protection, particularly the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German law on data protection (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG). The responsible party for compliance with the data protection laws and the service provider within the German Telemedia Act is:

Tel. +49.711.7597-0
Fax: +49.711.753316

Commercial register District Court Stuttgart, HRA 221073

Article 6 (1), sentence 1, lit. a, lit. b and lit. f of the GDPR as well as section 15 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) form the basis for the processing of personal data. If data is entered on our website, e.g. during a request for quote, registration for a newsletter or use of a contact form, certain input fields are marked as “mandatory information”. We use these fields to collect only the data that is necessary for contractual performance or for carrying out the request. If you wish, you may also provide us with additional data.

Your personal data will be used and stored for performance of the request made by you or to complete the request made by you (e.g. creation of a quotation, reply to a contact request) and for advertising purposes (please read point 2). As soon as the personal data is no longer necessary to fulfill the purpose, it is deleted. If statutory retention obligations exist, the data is locked until the retention obligations have expired and it is then deleted. Please note that due to routine data backups a time lag with deletion of data may occur, which may sometimes be significant.

2. Advertising measures: especially e-mail newsletter

You may, at any time, object to the use of your personal data for advertising purposes – for all future advertising – and may do so in writing, by fax, by e-mail or by phone, or you may at any time revoke consent provided to us with respect to advertising.

This applies in particular to e-mail newsletters with, for example, information on our products and services. We will only send you e-mail newsletters if you have provided consent to the use of your data for this purpose or if we have a legitimate interest (especially for direct advertising) in accordance with Article 6 (1), sentence 1, lit. f, GDPR. You can at any time, for all future advertising, unsubscribe from an e-mail newsletter by either clicking on the link shown in each e-mail newsletter or by contacting us using the specified contact details.

3. Forwarding of data to third parties

Your personal data is, as a rule, only known to those persons who are involved in processing your request, processing your order and sending the newsletter. Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties as is necessary for the purpose of executing the contract, as long as you expressly consented to this or as the data protection legislation permits this. However, only the necessary data is passed on in each case.

With respect to the delivery of goods that have been ordered, your address data will be passed on to transport and logistics companies.

In the case of “automatic debit transfer/direct debit” as the payment method, we pass on your data that is necessary to process the payments to the payment service providers selected by you.

In the event of default of payment, we have the option of passing your data to law firms or to debt collection companies.

In such cases, our data processing is carried out by a service provider that is bound by instructions, that is obligated in accordance with the data protection regulations and that is not permitted to use the data for any other purpose.

4. Rights of data subjects

You have, under certain conditions, the right to obtain information free of charge on the personal data we have stored in relation to you, to have incorrect data amended and to demand the deletion or restriction of the processing as well as the transferability of your personal data.

You can at any time object to the use of data for direct advertising; you can also at any time, for future communications, object to the use of data on the basis of Article 6 (1), lit. e or f GDPR for reasons arising from your particular situation.

In some cases, however, we are not permitted to fully delete user data due to statutory retention obligations. We would also like to point out your right of appeal to the Baden-Württemberg State Commissioner for the Protection of Data and Freedom of Information.
