Information on data protection
Your personal data will be processed and protected in accordance with the legal regulations. In the following text, we will inform you about how we handle your personal data, the purpose for which this data is used, to whom we may pass this data on, if applicable, and what rights you have with regard to the processing of your data.
Principles of data processing
Controller and responsible for the processing of your personal data within the meaning of the general data protection regulation
TANDLER Gear and Gear Factory GmbH & Co KG
28201 Bremen Germany
You will find further information about our company, details of the persons authorized to represent us and also further contact possibilities in the imprint of our website.
Purpose of data processing
The personal data we receive from you will only be used for the purposes for which we have received or collected it, such as to answer your inquiries, to establish, process and terminate contracts concluded with you, for technical administration and possibly to advertise our products and services, if you have given your consent or if a legal provision permits this.
Data processing for other purposes will only be considered if the necessary legal requirements are met. In this case we will of course observe any information obligations.
Legal basis of the data processing
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is generally – unless there are specific legal provisions – Art. 6 and Art. 49 GDPR. The following possibilities are particularly relevant:
- Data processing based on consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR)
- Data processing on the basis of consent (Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR
- Data processing for the performance of contracts (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR
- Data processing for the performance of contracts (Art. 49 para. 1 lit. b) or c) GDPR
- Data processing for the fulfilment of a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR
- Data processing based on a balancing of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR)
In connection with the respective processing, we refer to the corresponding terms so that you can classify on which basis we process your personal data.
Storage duration/deletion of data
Unless a specific storage period has been specified within this data protection declaration, we will delete your personal data as a matter of principle if there is no need for further storage. A requirement may exist in particular if the data is still needed to fulfill contractual services, to check and grant or ward off warranty and, if applicable, guarantee claims. If you assert a justified request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have another legally permissible reason for storing your personal data (e.g. tax or commercial law retention periods). In the case of legal storage obligations, deletion will only be considered after the expiry of the respective storage obligation.
Recipients / transfer to third parties
Your personal data will only be passed on or transferred to third parties, e.g. service providers/suppliers, if this is necessary for the purpose of fulfilling the contract, if we are legally obliged to do so, if the transfer is permitted on the basis of a weighing of interests in the sense of Art. 6 Par. 1 letter f) GDPR, or if you have given your prior consent. We select our service providers/suppliers carefully – especially with regard to data protection and data security – and take all measures required by data protection law for permissible data processing.
Place of data processing
A transfer of the personal data provided by you to a third country does not generally take place. If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this is done in connection with the use of services of third parties or disclosure/transmission of data to third parties, this is only done to fulfill our (pre-)contractual obligations, due to a legal obligation, based on our legitimate interests, or based on your consent.
Note on data transfer to the USA
We only pass on your data to service providers who transfer your data to the USA after your express consent. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to surrender personal data to security authorities without you as the person concerned being able to take legal action against this. Therefore, it cannot be excluded that US authorities (e.g. secret services) may process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
Information on the consent to data processing
You can revoke a given consent to the processing of your personal data at any time for the future without additional costs, i.e. with no higher than the usual fees for the transmission. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Your rights as a data subject
You have the right to obtain information about your personal data processed by us. Within the framework of the legal and data protection regulations, you have a right to data transfer, rectification, restriction of processing and erasure, as well as, if applicable, a right of revocation or a right to object to data processing for the future. In particular, you have a right of objection in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 1 and 2 GDPR against the processing of your data in connection with a direct advertising campaign, if this is based on a weighing of interests. You have the right to complain about the processing of personal data by us to a supervisory authority for data protection.
Requests for information should be made in writing or otherwise verified to ensure that the information is provided to the correct person.
You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint for this and other questions about data protection.
Protection of stored data
We use technical and organizational security measures to protect the personal data you provide us from manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved and adapted according to the state of the art. It cannot be ruled out that data transmitted by you without encryption may be viewed by third parties during transmission. Please note that no conclusively secure transmission can be guaranteed with regard to data transmission via the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail). Sensitive data should therefore either not be transmitted over the Internet at all or only via a secure connection (SSL).
Further information on data protection
Protection of minors
Consent to process personal data can only be given by a person of full age. For information society services, the consent of a child is permissible from the age of sixteen years in accordance with Art. 8 GDPR.
Contact by e-mail, telephone or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your inquiry including all personal data (name, inquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not pass on this data without your consent. The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your inquiry is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the inquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR), provided that the inquiry was made. The data sent to us by you via contact inquiries will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for which the data was stored ceases to apply. Mandatory legal provisions – in particular legal retention periods – remain unaffected.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. A transfer of the personal data provided by you to a third country or an international organization does not take place and is not planned. Your personal data will not be forwarded to external third parties. The processing of this data is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, provided that your inquiry is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the inquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR), provided that the inquiry was made. The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage or the purpose for which the data was stored ceases to apply. Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
