    General Terms of Sale

    1. General

    • 1.1 The legal relations arising from a contract between us and the purchaser concerning the provision of goods, services or work by us for the purchaser are governed exclusively by our general sales conditions. Inclusion of the purchaser’s general business conditions, their purchasing conditions in particular, is not accepted.

    2. Conclusion of the contract

    • 2.1 Our quotations are non-binding.
    • 2.2 A contract does not come into being until the order has been confirmed by us in writing. Additional agreements and supplements must be in writing to be valid.

    3. Supply, prices, delivery, transfer of risk

    • 3.1 Our supplies, services and prices are understood to be ex works (Maxdorf); packaging costs are not included.
    • 3.2 Unless expressly agreed otherwise, delivery will be by a carrier commissioned by us at the purchaser’s expense and risk. The carrier is selected at our reasonable discretion, but we do not accept any responsibility for it being the cheapest shipment.
    • 3.3 If carried-paid delivery is agreed in an individual case, this only applies to normal freight and postal deliveries. If the purchaser requires express delivery, we are not obliged to pay the additional costs compared to ordinary delivery.
    • 3.4 If performance of the contract takes more than four months from conclusion of the contract, the remuneration for the goods may subsequently be increased by us if our own costs (raw materials, energy, salaries, etc.) should rise during that time. Increasing the remuneration assumes that our own costs have risen by at least 5% in that particular case. The percentage increase must correspond with the amount by which our own costs have risen. The purchaser is entitled to withdraw from the contract if the remuneration is increased by more than 10%.
    • 3.5 The minimum order value is 75.00 EUR net.

    4. Payment conditions

    If made within 14 days of the date of invoice payments are subject to a 2% discount, otherwise they should be made within 30 days (without any discount). The discount is only granted if all payments from previous obligations have already been made to us.

    5. Delivery times

    • 5.1 The goods are considered to have been shipped on time when they have been dispatched by the delivery date specified.
    • 5.2 Delivery times specified by us are only given as a guide. Delivery times are only considered to be binding when we have expressly promised a firm delivery date (fixed date) in writing.
    • 5.3 If a fixed date has been agreed the obligation to deliver on time does not apply in the following cases:
      • a. production of the goods is restricted by events and circumstances, the occurrence of which is out of our control (such as official measures, operating interruptions, shortage of raw materials and/or energy, traffic disruptions),
      • b. when, through no fault of ours, raw material suppliers do not deliver on time and it is not possible or reasonable for us to obtain materials from elsewhere in order to manufacture the goods ordered.
      • c. when, during the contractual relationship, further specifications are needed to manufacture the goods and the purchaser does not immediately make that information available to us.
    • 5.4 In the cases indicated in point 5.3, the fixed date is extended by the time for which production is obstructed, plus a reasonable start-up time.
    • 5.5 If, in the cases indicated in point 5.3, the events and/or circumstances last for more than three months, we are entitled to withdraw from the contract.
    • 5.6 Part deliveries and part invoices are permitted so long as they are reasonable for the purchaser.

    6. Retention of ownership

    • 6.1 In all cases, we retain ownership of the goods supplied until complete payment of all obligations arising from the contract.
    • 6.2 If the goods supplied by us are combined with an item belonging to the purchaser in such a way that the purchaser’s item can be deemed to be the main item, it is considered to have been agreed that the purchaser transfers co-ownership of the main item to us, in the ratio of the invoice value of the goods supplied by us to the invoice value (or else the market value) of the main item. The purchaser transfers this ownership to us free of charge.
    • 6.3 The purchaser is entitled to pass on the goods on which ownership is retained (reserved goods) in the normal course of business provided he meets his obligations arising from the business relationship with us. The purchaser assigns all amounts receivable from the resale of the goods on which we have retained ownership to us in advance when the contract is concluded. We grant the purchaser a revocable right to collect the amounts receivable previously assigned to us in his own name. We will only revoke this right if the purchaser is in arrears in paying us and/or has applied for insolvency proceedings to be opened.
    • 6.4 If we revoke the right, the purchaser will be obliged, when duly requested, to provide us with all information and let us have all documents needed to assert the purchaser’s claims against debtors arising from the resale. In particular, this includes the following information: full name and address of the debtor, invoice number and invoice amount, notification that payment is due. In this case, the purchaser is obliged to allow us to inspect any delivery notes and invoices relating to the amount receivable from the resale of goods.
    • 6.5 The purchaser is not permitted to pledge the reserved goods or offer them as security. The purchaser must inform us immediately of any enforcement action taken by third parties on the reserved goods or the previously assigned amounts receivable. The purchaser must reimburse us for the legal costs of a successful intervention if the third party is not able to reimburse us for the costs.

    7. Offsetting and withholding right

    The purchaser may only offset our claim for payment arising from a purchase contract against claims or assert a withholding right on the basis of such claims, if his claim is undisputed or judged to be legally binding or is based on the contract on which the amounts payable to us that are to be offset, or on which a withholding right is being asserted, are based.

  • Guidelines for subsequent deliveries and spare parts supply

    For emtechnik, customer satisfaction takes centre stage. This is the basis for sustainable business success on both sides. In order to support our customers in their long-term production and sales planning, we ask you to consider the following guidelines for subsequent deliveries and spare parts supply, which have been developed on the basis of our many years of experience.

    • 1. It is unavoidable that our high-quality products also have to be revised from time to time. In order to be able to provide our customers with newly developed materials according to the state of the art, tools and moulds must be modified and adapted. This is done within the scope of the possibilities available to us as follows:
      • If our products are modified, we will inform customers who purchase them in an ongoing delivery relationship of the specific changeover date in writing with a reasonable lead time.
      • The customer can order an all-time requirement for the affected products at the price valid up to that point up to 4 weeks prior to the changeover date stated. The delivery takes place according to the production planning of emtechnik.
      • Of course, our warranty and guarantee commitments continue to apply unchanged even after product changes. Instead of remedial action, we undertake to provide subsequent delivery of defect-free products.
      • Repeat orders of unchanged products and spare parts are possible up to 6 months after the product changeover with an extra charge in addition to the last valid offer price if applicable.
    • 2. Some emtechnik products contain raw materials or supplier parts which are produced by our contractual partners. We also try to reach appropriate agreements with these partners in the event of product changes in order to be able to inform our customers as described. However, since such changes are caused outside our business operations, we cannot give you any assurance in this respect.

We explicitly reserve the right to pursue criminal or civil action against unpermitted commercial use of our content.

    Problems related to External Links

    Our pages may contain links to other external websites of third parties. We have no control over the content of these websites. Linked pages are verified by us at the time the link is made. No illegal content was detectable at that time. However, once links are set they are living (dynamic) references. A complete check of the content of linked pages is performed by EM-Technik GmbH only to a reasonable degree. We explicitly distance ourselves from all external content that was modified after the link was set and has not yet been verified by us.

    If any violations of the law become known, we will immediately remove any such links that have been set.

    No advertising

    Use of the contact information in the masthead for commercial advertising is expressly not permitted unless the provider has previously given written consent or a business relationship has already been established. The provider and all persons named on this website hereby oppose any commercial use and disclosure of their data.

    Changes in Content

    EM-Technik reserves the right to modify, add to or delete the content of the pages at any time without prior notification or to cease publication temporarily or definitively.

    Final provisions

    If you are a commercial agent as defined by the German Commercial Code or are acting on behalf of a legal entity of public law, German law shall apply exclusively to the exclusion of UN sale of goods law. The exclusive place of jurisdiction for you as commercial agent or agent negotiating for a legal entity of public law is the headquarters of EM-Technik GmbH. If EM-Technik GmbH brings legal action, the user's place of jurisdiction shall also apply optionally.

    Every affected person who has questions or suggestions regarding data protection can contact our Data Protection Officer directly at any time.

    2. Purpose of the newsletter

    The company newsletter provides information about products and innovations of EM-Technik GmbH at irregular intervals.

    3. Liability

    The contents of our pages are made available to you in good faith.

    However, EM-Technik GmbH assumes no liability for the currentness, correctness or completeness of the information provided, except in case of proven wilful or gross negligence on the part of EM-Technik GmbH.

    The required features of the products should therefore be agreed on in each individual case when purchasing the product.

    4. Registration

    If you would like to receive the newsletter, we will need a valid e-mail address from you and the salutation, first and last names to use when addressing you. After subscribing you will receive an e-mail from us with a link which you will need to use to confirm receipt of the newsletter (double opt-in). This serves to verify the e-mail address you entered and to ensure that someone else has not ordered the newsletter using your e-mail address.

    If you subscribe to the newsletter we save the IP address of the computer system you were using at the time when you subscribed, which was assigned by your Internet-Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time when you subscribed. This data must be collected to be able to track possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later time. It serves as legal protection of the person responsible for processing.

    5. Service provider

    We use a service provider with headquarters in Germany to send out the newsletter. We require this provider to comply with the applicable data protection laws. Our service provider ensures that your data will not be disclosed for other purposes under any circumstances or used for any purpose other than sending out the emtechnik newsletter. Your data will reside exclusively in European computer centres.

    6. Newsletter tracking

    The EM-Technik GmbH newsletter contains "tracking pixels". A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in this type of e-mail which is sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. In this way the success or failure of online marketing campaigns can be evaluated statistically. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, we can determine whether and when you opened an e-mail and which links in the e-mail you opened.

    The personal data collected through the tracking pixels included in the newsletter is saved by us and evaluated to optimise our sending of the newsletter and to adjust the content of future newsletters to fit the interests of newsletter recipients even better. This data is deleted automatically by the service provider after a maximum of 6 months. You can revoke this tracking function at any time with an e-mail to info@em-technik-newsletter.com

    7. Purpose/legal basis

    You have made your data available to us to obtain the newsletter of our company. Processing of your personal data is based on your consent. This processing is permissible pursuant to art. 6 paragraph 1 letter a) of the GDPR.

    8. Cancellation/unsubscribing

    You are entitled to cancel the separate declaration of consent for sending the newsletter given with the double opt-in process at any time with effect for the future. After cancellation the relevant personal data will be deleted. We are permitted to automatically interpret unsubscribing from the newsletter as cancellation.

    9. Duration of storage

    The information you have provided will be saved for as long as you would like to receive the newsletter. After cancellation of your consent or unsubscribing from the newsletter, the data will be deleted immediately.

    10. Your right as a data subject to information, correction, deletion and restriction, to object to the processing and your right to data transfer (currently: Section 13 paragraph 2 b DS-GVO)

    You have the right to request information from us about the processing of your personal data (cf. art. 15 DS-GVO). You also have the right to request that we correct any incorrect personal data relating to you immediately (cf. art. 16 DS-GVO). Furthermore, you have the right to request that we delete any of your personal data if the requirements set out in art. 17 DS-GVO are met. If the requirements of Section 18 DS-GVO are met, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data. You also have the right to receive your personal data which you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format and to forward this data to another responsible person without any hindrance on our part under the conditions of art. 20 DS-GVO. You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time under the conditions of art. 21 DS-GVO.

In these cases training fees that have already been paid will be reimbursed to the full amount. Any indemnification claims over and above this on the part of the booking firm or participants shall in such cases be excluded.

    8. Legal title

    We retain unrestricted legal title in respect of all deliveries and teaching materials until the customer has fulfilled his obligations of payment completely. The resale of training documents is not permitted. All rights, including the translation, reprinting or copying of training documents or parts thereof, remain reserved to the EM-Technik GmbH. Such actions are only permissible subject to written consent by the EM-Technik GmbH.

    9. Data protection / data storage

    The EM-Technik GmbH will make use of the data relating to the customer exclusively for the purpose of organising the courses. Customer data will be stored and processed by the EM-Technik GmbH only in compliance with the relevant requirements of the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG) [Federal Data Protection Act].

    Personal data of the customer, including the home address and e-mail address, will not be passed on by the EM-Technik GmbH to third parties. Excepted from this are service partners of the EM-Technik GmbH who need to be in possession of the data for the purpose of handling the order / booking (e.g. the credit institute commissioned to handle the payments). In such cases the scope of the data passed on will be restricted to the necessary minimum.

    Customers of the EM-Technik GmbH have the right at any time to decline to receive advertising communications from the EM-Technik GmbH.

    10. Liability

    • 10.1 Based on statutory stipulations, we will admit liability in the following cases of damage:
      • a. in case of injury to life and limb or damage to health,
      • b. in case of deliberately malicious or grossly negligent actions on our part,
      • c. in case of defects which we have maliciously concealed, or of defects where we have given a guarantee that such defects are not present, and
      • d. in case of defects in the object of delivery, in so far as, based on the Produkthaftungsgesetz [Product Liability Act], liability must be admitted by persons not directly culpable.
    • 10.2 In addition we will admit liability for the violation of an obligation essential to the contract (a ‘cardinal obligation’) even when occasioned only by minor negligence. In this case the obligation to indemnify shall be restricted to the foreseeable damages typically associated with such circumstances. Essential contractual obligations are obligations that are incumbent on us based on the content of contract and with a view to achievement of the object of the contract, the fulfilment of which is indispensable if the contract is to be properly executed at all, and where the ordering party is entitled to count on their being fulfilled on a regular basis.
    • 10.3 Any liability over and above that detailed in sections 10.1 and 10.2 above is hereby excluded.

    11. Concluding stipulations

    If any present or future stipulation of this contract, in whole or in part, should be ineffective, null and void or impossible of execution, the validity of the remaining stipulations of the contract shall not be affected thereby, provided that, having regard to the following regulation, execution of the contract does not represent an inconvenience which a party cannot reasonably be expected to accept. The same shall apply if after the conclusion of the contract a loophole in need of supplementation shall be found. In such a case the parties shall replace the ineffective, null and void or inexecutable stipulation, or the loophole in need of explication, with an effective stipulation which in terms of its legal and business content approximates as closely as possible to the ineffective, null and void or inexecutable stipulation, and which answers to the overall purpose of the contract. Courts exclusively responsible, within the scope of their objective competence, for any disputes between the customer and the EM-Technik GmbH in relation to the effectiveness of the contract, claims arising from the contract or any other claims in connection with the initiation, fulfilment or termination of the contractual relationship are Amtsgericht Ludwigshafen [the Magistrates’ Court of Ludwigshafen] and Landgericht Frankenthal [the Regional Court of Frankenthal].

    Note in accordance with §33 of the BDSG: the name and address of the customer, together with any data required for the implementation of the contract, will be stored in automated files.

    2. Use of cookies

    The website of EM-Technik GmbH uses cookies. Cookies are small data packets generally consisting of letters and numbers. They are saved in the browser when you visit certain websites. Cookies make it possible for the website to recognise your browser again, follow you as you surf through various areas of the website and identify you when you return to the website.

    Cookies do not contain any data that identifies you personally. However, the information about you saved by the site operator can be assigned to the data included in the cookies and saved in them. For example, users of our website do not need to place their articles on the wish list again every time they visit the site. The website makes note of the articles a user has placed on the virtual wish list by means of a cookie.

    Information we obtain from you by using cookies can be used for the following purposes:

    • To recognise the user's computer when the user visits the website
    • To retrace the user's surfing activities on the website
    • To evaluate the use of the website
    • Operation of the website
    • To prevent fraud and to improve the security of the website
    • Individual design of the website, taking the user's needs into account

    Cookies have no harmful effect on a browser. They do not contain any viruses and do not allow us to spy on you. Two types of cookies are used:

    • Temporary cookies are automatically deleted when your browser closes (session cookies)
    • Permanent cookies, on the other hand, have a maximum lifecycle of up to 20 days. Cookies of this type make it possible for you to be recognised when you access the website again after leaving it.

    By using cookies we are able to retrace your usage behaviour for the purposes stated above and to a corresponding extent. They are also intended to optimise surfing on our website for you. We collect this data in anonymised form only. The permissibility of processing is in conformity with art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f of the GDPR, which states that processing is lawful if it is required to protect the legitimate interests of the responsible person or of third parties, provided the interests or basic rights and fundamental freedoms of the affected person which promote the protection of personal data do not outweigh those of the responsible person or third parties. The legitimate interest is the optimised presentation of our website. Providing the data is required to be able to access the website without problems.

    The affected person can prevent cookies from being set in the session by our website at any time by making the corresponding setting to the Internet browser that is being used, thereby cancelling consent for cookies to be set for the duration of the session. Cookies that have already been set can also be deleted at any time using the Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all commonly used Internet browsers. If the affected person deactivates setting of cookies in the Internet browser that is being used, it may not be possible to use all the functions of our website to their full extent.

    3. Scope and purpose of data processing, legal bases, providing data and duration of storage

    Opening and using the website

    Every time our website and its web pages are accessed, usage data is transmitted by the respective Internet browser and saved in server log files. The data records saved in this process contain the following data items:

    1. IP address
    2. Date and time when our website was accessed
    3. Name of the web page
    4. Referrer URL (origin URL from which you came to our website)
    5. Amount of data transferred
    6. Product and version information of the browser used
    7. Operating system used

    EM-Technik GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the situation of the affected person while making use of this general data and information. The permissibility of processing is in conformity with art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter b of the GDPR, which states that processing is lawful if it is required to implement a contract to which the affected person is a party. The same applies to pre-contractual measures that are undertaken at the request of the affected person. The data processed by us is required to makes it possible for you to access and use the website. This is data that must necessarily be processed while a telemedium is being used. Otherwise you would not be able to access the website.

    Log files are evaluated by us in anonymised form to further improve the website, make it more user-friendly and to find and correct errors more quickly.

    The permissibility of processing is in conformity with art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f of the GDPR, which states that processing is lawful if it is required to protect the legitimate interests of the responsible person or of third parties, provided the interests or basic rights and fundamental freedoms of the affected persons which require the protection of personal data do not outweigh those of the responsible person or third parties. The legitimate interest is in making a website available with information and providing services to customers, and also in optimising operation of the website. The anonymous data of the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person. The IP address is deleted or anonymised after usage is complete. Anonymisation involves modifying the IP address in such a way that it cannot be assigned to a specific or specifiable, identified or identifiable natural person, or could only be so assigned with an inordinately large amount of time, expense and labour.

    4. Newsletter

    Users have the opportunity on the EM-Technik GmbH website to subscribe to our company's newsletter. The information and usage conditions can be read at https://em-technik.com/en/terms-condition#terms-of-newsletter.

    5. Use of e-mail addresses and our contact forms

    If you have questions of any kind, you have the opportunity to contact us directly using a contact form or via our e-mail address. If contact is made, we will process the personal data provided by you to respond to your request. Data processing for purposes of making contact with us is carried out in accordance with art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f of the GDPR. If you make contact with us to request a quotation, data will be processed in accordance with art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter b to carry out pre-contractual measures.

    6. Applying as an employee

    More extensive information regarding data protection in the context of your application as an employee can be found by clicking the Careers button on our website.

    7. Usage of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

    EM-Technik GmbH has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) into this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis involves recording, collecting and evaluating data related to the behaviour of website visitors. A web analysis service records data related to the website the affected person came from (called the referrer), which web pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a web page was viewed and similar details. Web analysis is used primarily to optimise a website and for a cost/benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

    The operating company responsible for the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

    EM-Technik GmbH uses the "_gat._anonymizeIp" add-on of Google Analytics for web analysis. This add-on causes the IP address of the Internet connection of the affected person to be shortened and anonymised by Google if access to our website is from a member state of the European Union or from another contract state of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

    The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse visitor flows on our website. Google uses the data and information derived in this manner for a number of purposes including an evaluation of the usage of our website, to compile online reports for us that point out the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website. Google Analytics sets a cookie (see section 2) in the information technology system of the affected person. Setting the cookie makes it possible for Google to analyse the use of our website. Every time one of the individual pages of this website operated by the person responsible for processing is accessed, if a Google Analytics component has been integrated into the page, the relevant Google Analytics component automatically causes the Internet browser in the information technology system of the affected person to transmit data to Google for the purposes of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google gains knowledge of personal data such as the IP address of the affected person. Google uses this data among other purposes to retrace the origin of the visitor and clicks made, and to be able to make commission settlements subsequently.

    Cookies make it possible for us to save personal information such as the time of access, place from which access came and the frequency of visits to our website by the affected person. Every time our website is accessed, this personal data including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the affected person is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is saved by Google in the United States of America. Google forwards this personal data collected through the technical process to third parties in some circumstances.

    As outlined above, the affected person can prevent cookies from being set in the session by our website at any time by making the corresponding setting to the Internet browser that is being used, thereby cancelling consent for cookies to be set for the duration of the session. Making this setting in the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie in the information technology system of the affected person. A cookie that has already been set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time using the Internet browser or other software programs.

    It is also possible for the affected person to cancel consent for collection of the data generated by Google Analytics for usage of this website and also for processing of the data by Google, and to prevent both from happening. To do this the affected person must download and install a browser add-on using the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data or information related to visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is evaluated by Google as cancellation of consent. If the information technology system of the affected person is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later time, the browser add-on must be installed again by the affected person to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the affected person or by another person whose sphere of influence may be assumed in the situation, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

    Further information regarding the applicable data protection provisions of Google is available from https://policies.google.com/privacy and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html. For a more detailed explanation of Google Analytics, please visit https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

    We use the Kyto analysis program (Kyto GmbH, Linienstraße 126, 10115 Berlin) to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions. Kyto makes it possible to measure and evaluate the usage behaviour on our website. The information we receive about your visit to our website is transmitted and stored by Kyto in Berlin. Kyto uses the information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on use and other services relating to the use of the website and Internet evaluation of the websites. Kyto uses services from Google Analytics. Google Analytics can store information, such as cookies or IP requests, that your browser sends during your visit to the website. For more information, please see the Google Analytics privacy policy. After the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser, the information is deleted again (so-called session cookies). If you continue to use our website, you consent to the processing of such data by Kyto and its third party providers as described above in its Privacy Policy (https://www.kyto.de/impressum/).

    8. Data protection provisions related to the use of Google AdWords

    The person responsible for processing has integrated Google AdWords into this website. Google AdWords is a service for Internet advertising that allows advertisers to place advertisements in both the Google search engine results and the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allow advertisers to define certain keywords in advance. By means of these words, an advertisement will then appear exclusively in the Google search engine results if the user opens a search result relevant to the keywords with the search engine. In the Google advertising network, advertisements are divided into topic-relevant Internet pages by means of an automatic algorithm which takes into consideration previously defined keywords.

    The operating company responsible for the services of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

    If an affected person reaches our website through a Google advertisement, a "conversion cookie" (see section 2) is saved in the information technology system of the affected person. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and no longer serves to identify the relevant person.

    The data and information collected by using conversion cookies is used by Google to create visitor statistics for our website. These visit statistics are used in turn by us to determine the total number of users who were directed to us through AdWords advertisements and thus to determine the success or failure of the relevant AdWords advertisement and to optimise our AdWords advertisements for the future.

    Conversion cookies are used to save personal information, for example the web pages visited by the affected person. Every time our website is accessed, personal data including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the affected person is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is saved by Google in the United States of America. Google forwards this personal data collected through the technical process to third parties in some circumstances. As outlined above, the affected person can prevent cookies from being set in the session by our website at any time by making the corresponding setting to the Internet browser that is being used, thereby cancelling consent for cookies to be set for the duration of the session. Making this setting in the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie in the information technology system of the affected person. A cookie that has already been set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time using the Internet browser or other software programs. It is also possible for the affected person to cancel interest-related advertising by Google. To do this the affected person must access the link www.google.de/settings/ads from every Internet browser used by that person and make the desired settings there.

    Further information regarding the applicable data protection provisions of Google is available from https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

    9. Data protection provisions related to the use of Google YouTube

    The person responsible for processing has integrated YouTube into this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to show video clips free and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also at no cost. Since YouTube allows users to publish all kinds of videos, complete film and television broadcasts as well as music videos, trailers and videos created by users themselves can be accessed through this Internet portal.

    The responsible operating company is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary organisation of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

    Every time one of the individual pages of this website operated by the person responsible for processing is accessed, if a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated into the page, the relevant YouTube component automatically causes the Internet browser in the information technology system of the affected person to download a description of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. For further information about YouTube you can visit https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google are informed which specific web page of our website was visited by the affected person.

    If the affected person is logged into YouTube at the same time, when a web page containing a YouTube video is accessed, YouTube will detect which specific web page of our website the affected person is visiting. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the corresponding YouTube account of the relevant person.

    Then YouTube and Google will always receive information via the YouTube component indicating that the affected person visited our website if the affected person was logged into YouTube at the same time when our website was opened. This takes place regardless of whether or not the affected person clicked on a YouTube video. If the affected person does not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, this can be prevented by logging out of the affected person's YouTube account before accessing our website.

    The data protection provisions published by YouTube (which can be accessed at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/) provide information about how personal data is collected, processed and used by YouTube and Google.

    11. Legal basis of processing

    Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter a of the GDPR serves as the legal basis of our company for processing steps in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If processing of personal data is required to implement a contract to which the affected person is a party, as is the case for example in the processing steps required to deliver goods or provide some other service or consideration, the permissibility of processing is in conformity with art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter b of the GDPR. The same applies to processing steps that are required to carry out pre-contractual measures, as in the case of requests about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process the personal data, for example to comply with tax requirements, processing is based on art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter c of the GDPR. In rare cases, processing of personal data could become necessary to protect vital interests of the affected person or of another natural person. This would be the case for example if a visitor were injured in our business facilities and the visitor's name, age, health insurance company information or other vital information had to be disclosed to a physician, hospital or other third party. Then processing would be based on art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter d of the GDPR. Processing steps could ultimately be based on art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f of the GDPR. Processing steps that are not covered by any of the previously cited legal bases are permitted on this legal basis if processing the personal data is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, provided those interests are not outweighed by the interests, basic rights and fundamental freedoms of the affected person. Processing steps such as these are in particular permitted for us because they are specifically mentioned by the European legislature. The legislature went so far as to hold that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the affected person is a customer of the responsible entity (recital 47 sentence 2 of the GDPR).

    12. Legitimate interest in the processing undertaken by the responsible person or a third party

    If processing of personal data is based on art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f of the GDPR, our legitimate interest is performing our business activity for the purpose of all our employees' well-being.

    13. Duration for which the personal data will be saved

    The criterion for the storage duration of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After this period elapses, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided it is no longer required to fulfil a contract or to initiate a contract.

    14. Legal or contractual requirements for providing personal data; necessity for formation of a contract; obligation of the affected person to provide personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide personal data

    We will clarify with you that providing personal data is stipulated by law in some cases (for example tax requirements) or may be necessary due to contractual provisions (information about the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary when entering into a contract for an affected person to make personal data available to us which will subsequently have to be processed by us. For example, the affected person is required to provide personal data for us if our company enters into a contract with the person. The consequence of failing to provide personal data would be that the contract could not be made with the affected person. Before personal data is provided by an affected person, the person must contact one of our employees.

    Our employee will clarify with the affected person for the specific case whether providing the personal data is legally or contractually stipulated or is necessary for the formation of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.

    15. Right to information, correction, deletion, restriction, cancellation and data portability

There is a general right to object to direct advertising, which is implemented by us without indicating a specific situation.
