4. Collection of data on our website


Some of the websites use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve the purpose of making our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and stored by your browser.

Most of the cookies used by us are so-called “session cookies”. These are deleted automatically at the end of your visit. Other cookies are stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser during your next visit to our site.

You can set your browser to inform you when cookies are being placed and to only allow cookies on a case-by-case basis, to refuse cookies in certain cases or in general, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. Deactivating cookies may limit the full functionality of this website.

Cookies that are required for execution of the electronic communication process or for provision of certain features requested by you (e.g. shopping cart feature) are saved based on Art. 6(1) Point (f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically smooth and optimised provision of their services. Where other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysis of your browsing behaviour) are stored, these are addressed separately in this data privacy notice.

Server Log Files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information in server log files which your browser automatically sends to us. This information includes the following:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the computer used for access
  • time of the server query
  • IP address

These data are not combined with other data sources.

The data processing is based on Art. 6(1) Point (f) GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries using the contact form, we will store your data from the enquiry form including the contact data specified there by you for processing the enquiry and in case follow-up questions arise. We will not pass such information on without your consent.

So the data entered by you in the contact form will only be processed based on your consent (Art. 6 clause 1 letter a GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. To do so, sending us an informal message by email is sufficient. The lawfulness of the data processing operations based on consent before its withdrawal shall remain unaffected.

The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to erase them, withdraw your consent to their storage or the purpose for the data storage is omitted (e.g. after completed processing of your enquiry.). Imperative legal provisions – particularly retention periods – shall remain unaffected.

5. Analysis tools and advertisement

Company videos

Manufacturer names (e.g. of machine suppliers) can be seen in the images and company videos created by us and integrated on this website. However, this is to be understood exclusively as “advertising because brand use” and not as a sales-promoting measure for the product illustrated.

6. Newsletter

Newsletter data

If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter which is offered on the website, we require your email address and information which enables us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided, as well as your confirmation that you agree to the receipt of the newsletter. Other data will only be collected on a voluntary basis. We exclusively use these data for distribution of the requested information and do not pass them on to third parties.

The data entered during the registration process is processed on the basis of your consent (art. 6, (1) letter a of the GDPR). You can withdraw your consent to the storage of data, the e-mail address and its use for distribution of the newsletter at any time; you can use the "Unsubscribe" link in the newsletter, for example. The lawfulness of the data processing prior to the withdrawal of consent shall remain unaffected.

The data of yours we hold for the purposes of receiving the newsletter are stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and are erased after you have unsubscribed. Data that we stored for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area) remain unaffected hereby.
