Data sources

The personal data we process includes the data that we have received from you as part of a business relationship or the initiation thereof. For example, when you contact us through a form on our website, through email or by calling us, when personal contact occurs (e.g. while visiting an exhibition), when you forward an offer to us or request an offer from us, or when you order from us, all provided data, including personal data, is processed by us (please refer also to section “purposes of data processing” below). This is done for the purpose of processing requests, in case of follow-up questions, for the processing of contracts, for direct marketing (especially sending out our “E-News”), as well as internal administrative purposes.

In particular and in regard to data processing within the framework of our website, we try to collect personal data as sparingly as possible. Therefore, it is possible for you to look through our website without providing any personal data. However, if you wish to contact us through an online form or want to order a catalogue, you are required to fill out at least the personal data marked with an asterisk (*) in the according forms. This provided data will be saved by our data management and therefore processed and as well used for other forms of direct marketing (e.g. forwarding our “E-News”) as well as internal administrative purposes.

Furthermore, we process data that we have received permissibly from publicly accessible sources (media in all forms, including print media, websites, etc.; commercial registers, registers of association, land registers, etc.). Additionally, we occasionally process data that we have received from the credit protection association (KSV 1870).

Unsubscribing from this newsletter is possible at any time. Simply respond to a newsletter email with the word “Unsubscribe” in the subject heading.

Legal bases for processing

Lawful processing requires that either the data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes or it is based on any other legitimate legal basis, such as (non-exhaustive list) processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject, or processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract, or processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.

Our data processing is either based on
