If you conclude a contract with us or if you contact us on the basis of a memorandum of understanding or of a preliminary agreement, we will process the following information:

  • form of address, first name, and surname
  • a valid e-mail address
  • address
  • telephone number (landline and/or mobile), fax number
  • any information we require to work out a proper quotation or to meet our contractual obligations
  • banking details, if applicable

Such data is processed

  • in order to be able to identify you as an interested body or as a contractual partner

  • in order to run proper correspondence with you
  • in order to be able to create a proper invoice

Data processing is required as per art. 6, para. 1, sentence 1, lit. b of the DSGVO for the purpose of proper execution of preliminary contractual actions based on your enquiry and mutually to meet the obligations arising from any contract concluded with you, as stated above.

Any personal data gathered will be saved until your enquiry has been fully dealt with or until the contract with you has expired taking the relevant tax-related and trade-related documentation requirements and storage regulations (as per German Commercial Code or German Fiscal Code) into account. The data will then be deleted unless there is legitimate interest for extended data storage as per art. 6, para. 1, lit. f of the DSGVO. Such legitimate interest is based on the execution of our further business interests in connection with your company, e.g. saving your contact details in case we intend to place another order with you. We will then delete your data as soon as this purpose has been served.

We will use your e-mail address to provide you with our Newsletter magazine and to invite you to our information meetings to inform you about any innovation concerning our products and our technologies. The provision of our Newsletter magazine and any invitation to an information meeting are to be regarded as direct advertising. Such direct advertising is to make our company more well-known and to increase our market share. This is our legitimate interest. The legal basis for data processing in this case is art. 6, para. 1, lit. f of the DSGVO.

Such purpose constitutes our legitimate interest. We will delete your personal data as soon as such processing purpose has been fulfilled taking the relevant tax-related and trade-related documentation requirements and storage regulations (as per German Commercial Code or German Fiscal Code) into account.
