Purpose and legal basis for processing personal data

1. Usage of the website

When obtaining the given consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, point (a) of Article 6 (1) EU Data Protection Ordinance (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

If the processing of personal data is required for the execution of a contract, which the data subject is a party to, point (b) of Article 6 (1) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

When the processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation, which our company is subject to, point (c) of Article 6 (1) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, point (d) of Article 6 (1) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, point (f) of Article 6 (1) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

2. Fulfillment of a contract or contract negotiations

The processing of personal data is part of our business activities, for example for the fulfillment of contractual obligations based on point (b) of Article 6 (1) GDPR. In addition, the processing of personal data can be due to legal obligations inferred from point (c) of Article 6 (1) GDPR.

3. Marketing

We process personal data for marketing purposes in accordance with the law and only when they can be legally defined as legitimate interests based on point (f) of Article 6 (1) GDPR or after the signing of a consent declaration by the data subject based on point (a) of Article 6 (1) GDPR.

Scope of processing personal data

1. Usage of Website

We only process personal data of our users if this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only after consent of the user. An exception applies in special cases, where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons or law permits the processing of the data.

In server log files, the following data will be saved among other things: name of the website, file, date, data volume, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your internet provider, the HTTP referer (the page from which you accessed our website) and the IP address.

Without these data, it regularly would technically not be possible to deliver and display the contents of our website. In this regard, the collection of data is essential.

2. Fulfillment of a contract or contract negotiations

The processing of personal data for the purpose of business activities includes the necessary personal data, such as your address, the owner of the business and further contact details. For data minimization purposes, the personal data is processed as reduced as possible.

3. Marketing

Personal data is processed for marketing activities in accordance with the principle of data minimization. Henceforth, the data is processed as reduced as possible. This may include contact details, addresses and additional information about your business.

Transfer of personal data

Generally, Schraubenwerke Meusel GmbH & Co. KG requests the GDPR compliant processing of data, irrespective of who processes the data. Below, we will specify potential data recipients - sorted by purpose of data collection / processing.

1. Usage of Website

In the course of the use of this website, the web space provider collects automatically information and personal data to ensure the functioning of the website.

2. Fulfillment of a contract or contract negotiations

Regarding the processing of personal data for business activities, such as the fulfillment of a contract, relevant data can be shared with several categories of recipients, including transport service companies and logistic companies for delivery and pick-up, email providers, tax offices or federal authorities for the purpose of inspection duties. Generally, the personal data will be shared as reduced as possible in accordance with the data minimization principle.

3. Marketing

For marketing activities, data will typically only be shared with the transmitters of the marketing materials, such as email providers, transport service companies, logistic companies, or postal companies.

Principle of limitation to purpose

Your data will only be processed for the prior stated purposes based on point (b) of Article 5 (1) GDPR. The processing of your data for other purposes is prohibited. The purpose is determined by previous actions (for example the conclusion of a contract).

Principle of data minimization

Schraubenwerke Meusel GmbH & Co. KG reduces your personal data as much as possible. The scope of the processed data depends on the purpose. The principle of data minimization based on point (c) of Article 5 (1) GDPR will be strictly respected.

Data erasure and storage time

The duration of processing and saving of personal data depends among other things decisively on the purpose of processing. The personal data of a data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply based on point (a) of Article 17 (1) GDPR.

Personal data may be stored for longer if the data collector is obliged to do so by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract (point (a) and (e) of Article 17 (3) GDPR).
