Privacy Policy

1. An overview of data protection

Duty to provide information pursuant to Art. 13 EU-DSGVO on the processing of personal data

The new data protection law of the European Union is called DGSVO. It regulates, for example, how companies process personal data of their customers, interested parties, suppliers, service providers and other business partners. The following explains which data is processed for which purpose and which rights you have.

Personal data are all data with which you can be personally identified (e.g. address, name, function, telephone number, email address).

We only collect, process or use personal data from you if you voluntarily make it available to us and it is also permitted by law or you have consented to.

This usually happens when you enter into a business relationship with us, e.g. by closing contracts, requiring quotations, placing repair orders, consulting or making use of other services provided by our company. We will always obtain your consent for further purposes. The legal bases are laid down in the European data protection basic regulation among other things in the art. 6, 7 and your resulting rights in the art. 12-21.

The storage period depends on the legal requirements. If you conclude contracts with us, the storage period is usually 10 years.

Your personal data which we for example use to track offers, are only stored as long as we need them for processing, tracking and possible clarification.

Longer storage times occur with a regular customer. We will then delete your data at the latest after 10 years from the date on which the last active interaction with you took place.

Please note that data transmitted via the internet (e.g. via email communication) may be subject to security breaches. Complete protection of your data from third-party access is not possible.

The controller has integrated components of the LinkedIn Corporation on this website. LinkedIn is an Internet-based social network that enables users to connect with existing business contacts and to make new business contacts. Over 400 million registered individuals use LinkedIn in more than 200 countries. This makes LinkedIn currently the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most visited websites in the world.

The operating company of LinkedIn is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. For data protection issues outside the USA, LinkedIn Ireland, Privacy Policy Issues, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, is responsible.

With each individual call-up of our website that is equipped with a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in), this component causes the browser used by the data subject to download a corresponding representation of the component from LinkedIn. Further information on LinkedIn plug-ins can be found at As part of this technical procedure, LinkedIn receives knowledge of which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject.


If the data subject is logged in to LinkedIn at the same time, LinkedIn recognizes which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting with each call-up of our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the LinkedIn component and assigned by LinkedIn to the respective LinkedIn account of the data subject. If the data subject activates a LinkedIn button integrated on our website, LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.


LinkedIn always receives information via the LinkedIn component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged into LinkedIn at the time of calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the LinkedIn component or not.
