What are personal data?

E-mail address and other information in order to be able to provide you with the information you require or to answer your request. In these cases you give us your consent. We only save the data that you have submitted to us automatically or voluntarily.
How are the personal data processed?

Your data will not be passed on to third parties.
It can happen that content from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, is integrated into our website. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as third-party providers) perceive the IP address of the user. Because without the IP address, you would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required to display this content.

Legal basis for processing
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are required to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, for example to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. 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 to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail. We are particularly permitted to carry out such processing operations because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
Integration of services and content from third parties
Our offerings sometimes include content, services and services from other providers. These are, for example, maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube and graphics and images from other websites as well as links to our partner sites (VDMA, PKC systems). However, we have no control over whether the third-party provider stores the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform users about it. The transmission of the IP address is essential so that this data can be called up and displayed in the user's browser. The providers (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") thus perceive the IP address of the respective user.
Even if we try to only use third-party providers who only need the IP address in order to be able to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address is possibly saved. In this case, this process is used, among other things, for statistical purposes. If we know that the IP address is being saved, we will inform our users of this.
Other integration of services and content from third parties
It can happen that third party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated into this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) can access the IP address of the user. Because without the IP address, you would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We strive to only use content whose respective provider only uses the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no control over whether the third-party provider stores the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform users about it.
Use of YouTube
We integrate videos from the "YouTube" platform on our homepage. These are offers from the US provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA Browser to connect to Google.
