In general, you have provided this data to us. However, we may have received this data from the company for which you are working for (e.g. from your colleagues or superiors), from publicly available sources (e.g. company register), or from third parties who may lawfully submit personal data to us (e.g. other affiliated companies), or this data has been created from our IT systems (e.g. customer number). Please note that we do not process all above listed personal data in each case. The processing of data depends on the respective individual case and on your relationship with us.

Purpose of the processing:

In the course of our business relationship, your personal data may be processed for the following purposes:

  • Communication and customer support (e.g. processing of enquiries);
  • Initiation, maintenance and administration of business relationships as well as enchancing customer relations (e.g. processing of orders, accounting, contracts, customer administration and service, etc.);
  • Maintenance and protection of the security of our products and services and plant safety (e.g. access control);

  • Processing of insurance cases;
  • Data protection management;
  • Legal counselling and dispute resolution, enforcement of existing contracts and for the examination, establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

The processing is necessary to achieve the purposes set out above. If you do not wish to provide us certain personal data, this could mean that we cannot conclude the contract, cannot provide the requested service, cannot take the requested pre-contractual measures or cannot fulfil the stated purposes in accordance with the contract or the law. Please note that not all above listed purposes will apply in each case. The processing depends on the respective individual case and on your relationship with us. The examples above are not exhaustive.

Legal basis

The processing is based on the implementation of pre-contractual measures and performance of a contract in accordance with Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR as well as on our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR (smooth and secure run of business). It may also be the case that the processing is necessary for compliance with legal obligations (e.g. tax obligations) pursuant to Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR. Only in exeptional cases, if none of the abovementioned legal basis is eligible, the processing is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR.

3. Do we share your data?

Provided this is necessary and permitted to fulfill the above stated purposes, we may share personal data with other departments or companies of our group ( or with third parties such as legal consultants, tax consultants, auditors or other business partners (e.g. logistic partners for the processing of deliveries). Personal data may also be submitted to our data processors (e.g. IT-provider).

Except where otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we will not disclose your personal data to other recipients, unless this is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the fulfilment of our obligations or in cases this is legally or officially obligatory. Possible recipients in this case may be legal representatives, competent authorities, offices and courts.

If the above-mentioned recipients are located in countries outside of the European Union (in so-called “third countries”), the local data protection laws may not offer the same data protection level as in your country of residence. A transfer will therefore only take place in accordance with the statutory provisions if the European Commission has adopted an adequacy decision for the third country, if appropriate safeguards have been agreed with the recipient (e.g. EU Standard Contractual Clauses), the recipient participates in an approved certification system, binding corporate rules according to Art. 47 GDPR exist or there is a derogation for specific situations according to Art 49 GDPR (e.g. the transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract between you and us or you have explicitly consented to the proposed transfer).

4. How long do we store your data?

As soon as your personal data is no longer required for the fulfillment of the abovementioned purposes, your data will be deleted, unless there are longer statutory retention periods or other (legally justified) purposes, which require a continued storage of your data.
