Legal regulations
The legal basis for carrying out the named procedures is defined in the EU-GDPR and, if applicable, in the respective national data protection laws, in Germany in the federal data protection law (BDSG). In particular, Articles 4 to 7 EU-GDPR are to be mentioned here. Article 4 EU GDPR defines the term definitions and refers to recitals 26-37.

Should processing be required under Article 6 (1) (f), this shall exclusively be done for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling contracts, provided that there is no conflict with the data subject's legitimate interest, taking into account all data protection requirements. When balancing the interests of the parties concerned and the contracting parties, a strict standard is always applied in favor of the person concerned.

Potential recipients of data transmission
The potential recipients of transmitted personal data are

  • MKT Metall-Kunststoff-Technik GmbH & Co. KG
  • Public bodies, if there is a legal obligation
  • Service providers and other business partners, as far as it is necessary for the fulfillment of the respective purpose and a legal provision allows or orders this, or the person concerned has consented.

Any further disclosure of personal data is not intended and therefore does not take place.

Planned data transfer to third countries
Should data transmissions to third countries be required, then this is done exclusively for the conclusion or performance of contracts - as long as this does not conflict with the legitimate interest of the data subject - under consideration of all data protection requirements. If the intention to transfer the personal data to a third country or an international organization exists, this will take place according to Art. 45 EU-GDPR data transmission, on the basis of an adequacy decision.

However, should a transfer of data occur in accordance with Article 46 or Article 47 or Article 49 (1), second subparagraph, we point out that appropriate guarantees or binding internal data protection rules exist or, when weighing the interests of the parties concerned and the contracting parties, a strict standard in favor of the affected person is always applied.

 Standard deadlines for deletion of data 
The deletion of personal data takes place according to the respective valid legal or contractual regulations for data deletion, under consideration of legal or contractual retention obligations. The deletion of personal data, which is not subject to any statutory or contractual retention or deletion obligation, takes place immediately after they have become unnecessary to fulfill the respective purpose.

Right to information, correction, deletion and transferability
Each affected person has the right of access, through the responsible party, to the personal data concerned, as well as rectification, or erasure, or restriction of processing, or right to object to the processing and the right of data portability.

Right of withdrawal
Each person concerned has the right, if the processing is based on Article 6 (1) (a) or 9 (2) (a), to withdraw the consent at any time without prejudice to the lawfulness of the processing on the basis of the consent until it’s withdrawal.

Right of appeal
Each person concerned has the right to assert the existence of a right of appeal towards a supervisory authority.

Right to information
Each data subject has the right to know whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or to conclude a contract, whether the person is required to provide the personal data, and what the possible consequences of a non-provision would be.

Automated decision making including profiling
No automated decision making, including profiling, is conducted.

What data is collected through / on our website
General data:
For technical reasons, every time you visit our website, data is transmitted from your computer to us, such as the date and time of retrieval of our content, your browser type, browser settings and operating system, the page you visited last, the amount of data transferred and the access status (file transfer, file not found etc.). These data are non-personal information. Additionally, your computer also sends us your IP address, which may be personal in individual cases. Your IP address is a globally valid identifier on your computer, that is unique at the time of assignment by your internet service provider. Private visitors usually do not use a consistent IP address because these are only assigned temporarily to you by your provider. Generally, it is not possible for us to assign a dynamic IP address to a specific person. This is different in the case of a permanently assigned IP address, which principally makes an unambiguous assignment of the user data via this feature possible. Except for the purpose of prosecuting unauthorized access to our website, we generally do not use this data for person-related purposes, and evaluate it only on an anonymous basis and for statistical reasons.

Contact form:
When using the contact form on our website, your personal data will be sent to us unencrypted. In particular, this is at least your name, your address, your telephone and your e-mail address (mandatory fields). This is done on the basis of the above mentioned legal regulations. 

E-mail / Telephone inquiries:
In the case of an e-mail / telephone inquiry, stating your personal data, we assume that you have given us your consent to the purpose-oriented data processing by us. This is done on the basis of the above mentioned legal regulations.
