Data protection declaration

Privacy policy

1. Introduction

With the following information, we would like to give you, as a "data subject", an overview of the processing of your personal data by us and your rights under data protection laws. In principle, it is possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you wish to make use of special services of our company via our website, the processing of personal data may become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain your consent.

The processing of personal data, such as your name, address or e-mail address, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to "Engelbert Sellmaier Feinwerktechnik GmbH". By means of this privacy policy, we would like to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us.

As the controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as by telephone or post.

You too can take simple and easy-to-implement measures to protect yourself against unauthorized access to your data by third parties. Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to give you some information on how to handle your data securely:

l Protect your account (login, user or customer account) and your IT system (computer, laptop, tablet or mobile device) with secure passwords.

l Only you should have access to the passwords.

l Make sure that you only use your passwords for one account at a time (login, user or customer account).

l Do not use the same password for different websites, applications or online services.

l In particular, when using publicly accessible IT systems or those shared with other persons, it is essential that you log out of the network after logging in to a website, application or online service.

Passwords should be at least 12 characters long and should be chosen in such a way that they cannot be easily guessed. Therefore, they should not contain common words from everyday life, one's own name or the names of relatives, but upper and lower case letters, numbers and special characters.

4. Definitions

The privacy policy is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our privacy policy is intended to be easy to read and understand, both for the public and for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terminology used in advance.

We use the following terms in this Privacy Policy, among others:

1. Personal data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

2. Data Subject

Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller (our company).

3. Processing

processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination: restriction, deletion or destruction.

4. Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.

5. Profiling

Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data consisting in the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movement.

6. Pseudonymization

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person become.

7. Processors

Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

8. Recipients

The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to which personal data is disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative mandate under Union or Member State law are not considered recipients.

9. Third Party

A third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorised to process the personal data.

10. Consent

Consent means any freely given, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes, in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative action, by which the data subject indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data concerning him/her.

5. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR (in conjunction with Section 25 (1) TTDSG) serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, in the case of processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary for the purposes of a legitimate interest pursued by our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he was of the opinion that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

6. Technology

6.1 SSL/TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests, which you send to us as the operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that there is a "https://" instead of a "http://" in the address bar of the browser and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

We use this technology to protect the information you transmit.

6.2 Data recording during visits to the website

If you use our website for informational purposes only, if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us or do not give your consent to processing requiring consent, we will only collect data that is technically absolutely necessary for the provision of the service. This is usually data that your browser transmits to our server ("in so-called server log files"). Our website collects a range of general data and information every time you access a page by you or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following can be recorded:

1. browser types and versions used,

2. the operating system used by the accessing system,

3. the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer),

4. the sub-websites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,

5. the date and time of access to the website,

6. an abbreviated Internet Protocol address (anonymized IP address), and

7. The Internet service provider of the accessing system.

When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about your person. Rather, this information is needed in order to:

1. deliver the content of our website correctly,

2. optimize the content of our website as well as the advertising for it,

3. to ensure the long-term functionality of our IT systems and the technology of our website, and

4. To provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyberattack.

This collected data and information is therefore evaluated by us on the one hand statistically and on the other hand with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is based on the data collection purposes listed above.

6.3 Hosting by Mittwald

We host our website at Mittwald CM Service GmbH & Co. KG, Königsberger Straße 4-6, 32339 Espelkamp (hereinafter referred to as Mittwald).

When you visit our website, your personal data (e.g. IP addresses in log files) will be processed on Mittwald's servers.

The use of Mittwald is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in the most reliable presentation and provision of our website as well as its security.

We have concluded a data processing agreement (DPA) with Mittwald in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. This is a contract required by data protection law that ensures that Mittwald processes the personal data of our website visitors only in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.

8. Content of our website

8.1 Contact via contact form and e-mail

When contacting us via contact form or e-mail, personal data is collected. Which data is collected in the event of contact depends on the chosen contact channel and the content of the correspondence. If you use the contact form, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored. If contact is made via e-mail, the user's personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored. This data will be stored and used exclusively for the purpose of answering your request or for contacting you and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in answering your request in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. If your contact is aimed at concluding a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. Your data will be deleted after your request has been processed, this is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified and provided that there are no statutory retention obligations to the contrary.

9. Sending the newsletter

9.1 Sending newsletters to existing customers

If you have provided us with your e-mail address when purchasing goods or services, we reserve the right to send you regular offers for similar goods or services from our range of goods or services to those you have already purchased. In accordance with § 7 para. 3 UWG, we do not have to obtain any separate consent from you for this purpose. In this respect, data processing is carried out solely on the basis of our legitimate interest in personalised direct advertising in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. If you have initially objected to the use of your e-mail address for this purpose, we will not send the e-mail. You are entitled to object to the use of your e-mail address for the aforementioned advertising purpose at any time with effect for the future by notifying the responsible person named at the beginning. For this, you will only incur transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. Upon receipt of your objection, the use of your e-mail address for advertising purposes will be stopped immediately.

10. Plugins and other services

10.1 Google Maps

On our website we use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Maps is a web service for the display of interactive (land) maps in order to visually display geographical information. By using this service, for example, our location can be shown to you and a possible journey can be facilitated.

When you access the subpages in which the Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use of our website (e.g. Your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers and stored there, which may also result in a transfer to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether a user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as user profiles and evaluates them. In accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, the collection, storage and evaluation are carried out on the basis of Google's legitimate interest in the display of personalized advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of Google websites. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, but you must contact Google to exercise this right.

To ensure privacy on our website, Google Maps is disabled when you visit our website for the first time. A direct connection to Google's servers will only be established if you activate Google Maps independently and give your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR in our cookie banner. This prevents your data from being transmitted to Google the first time you visit the site.

You can view Google's terms of service at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html, and the additional terms of use for Google Maps can be found at www.google.com/intl/de_US/help/terms_maps.html

Detailed information on data protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found on Google's website ("Google Privacy Policy"): www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

10.2 Google WebFonts

Our website uses so-called WebFonts provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland for the uniform display of fonts. When you open a page, your browser loads the required WebFonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, the browser you are using must connect to the servers where the fonts are hosted. Basically, these are our own servers, so third parties such as Google usually do not have access to your personal internet data for this purpose. However, by using a content management system on our site, various plugins are integrated, some of which nevertheless connect to Google and load the fonts from there. This allows Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address.

The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR.

Further information on Google WebFonts and Google's privacy policy can be found at: developers.google.com/fonts/faq ; www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
