DATA PROTECTION STATEMENT

Thank you very much for your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH. Using the Internet pages of WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH internet is generally possible without submitting personal data. However, if someone wishes to make use of special services provided on our company website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, E-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always according to the General Data Protection Regulation and country-specific data protection provisions applicable to WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH. With this Data Protection Statement, our company wishes to inform the public about the nature, extent and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. This Data Protection Statement also informs data subjects of their rights.

WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH as data controller has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed on our website. Nevertheless, data transmissions over the Internet may have security holes; therefore, absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

1. Definitions

The Data Protection Statement of WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH is based on the terminology used by the European Directives and Regulatory bodies for adopting the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our Data Protection Statement should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. Therefore, we would like to explain the terms used.

Among others, we use the following terms in this Data Protection Statement:

a) Personal data

Personal data mean any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter the “data subject”). A natural person is identifiable who can be identified directly or indirectly, particularly by association with an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more specific characteristics expressing the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.

b) Data subject

A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the data controller.

c) Processing

Processing means any operation or series of operations carried out with or without the aid of automated processes that relates to personal data, such as collecting, recording, organising, sorting, storing, adapting or modifying, retrieving, querying, using, disclosing by transmission, disseminating or any other type of provision, matching or linking, restricting, erasing or destructing.

d) Restriction of processing

Restriction of the processing is the marking of stored personal data with the intention to restrict their future processing.

e) Profiling

Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person and analyse or predict aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, whereabouts or movement of that natural person.

f) Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the help of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and subject to technical and organisational measures ensuring that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Data controller

Data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body that alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of processing personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by EU law or by the law of the Member States, the data controller or the specific designation criteria may be provided according to EU law or the law of the Member States.

h) Data processor

Data processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body that processes personal data on behalf of the data controller.

i) Recipient

Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body receiving disclosed personal data regardless of whether it is a third party. However, authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under EU law or the law of the Member States are not considered recipients.

j) Third party

Third party is any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any body other than the data subject, data controller, data processor and the individuals authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the data controller or data processor.

k) Consent

Consent is any voluntary, informed and unambiguous expression of intent by the data subject in the specific case, in the form of a statement or other unequivocal confirmatory act indicating the permission to any processing of personal data.

4. Cookies

The internet pages of WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files that an Internet browser stores on a computer system.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier consisting of a string of characters that websites and servers associate with the browser on which the cookie is stored. This allows websites and servers to distinguish the browser from other browsers that store different cookies, and to recognise each browser by its unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH can offer visitors to this website more user-friendly services that would otherwise not be possible.

Cookies help optimise the information and offers on our website for the benefit of the visitor. Cookies allow us, as already mentioned, to reidentify the visitors to our website. This reidentification makes it easier for the visitors to use our website. For example, visitors to a website that uses cookies do not have to re-enter their access data each time they visit the website because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the visitor’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online store remembers the items that a customer has placed in the shopping cart with a cookie.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by using the appropriate setting of the Internet browser used to permanently object to the setting of cookies. It is also possible to delete set cookies at any time in an Internet browser or with other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be usable.

5. Collection of general data and information

The website of WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH collects a series of general data and information every time a data subject or an automated system accesses the website. These general data and information are stored on the server in the log files. The following data and information could be collected: (1) browser type and version used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-web pages on our website an accessing system aims for, (5) the date and time of access to our website, (6) the IP address, (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information related to the security to defend attacks on our IT systems.

WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject when using these general data and information. This information is needed (1) to correctly deliver the content of our website, (2) to optimise the content and advertising of our website, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our IT systems and technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary to prosecute in the case of a cyber-attack. WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH evaluates these anonymously collected data and information statistically and with the aim of increasing the protection and security of data in our company to ensure the highest level of protection of personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by the data subject.

6. Registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the data controller by providing personal data. The personal data sent to the data controller depends on the input mask used for the registration. he data controller collects and stores personal data entered by the data subject only for internal use. The data controller may arrange for the transfer to one or more data processors, such as a parcel service that also uses the personal data only for internal use attributable to the data controller.

By registering on the website of the data controller, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject, the date and time of the registration are also stored. These data are stored to prevent the abuse of our services and allow the investigation of any crimes. The storage of this data is therefore necessary for the security of the data controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the data is used for criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject by voluntarily providing personal data enables the data controller to offer the data subject content or services that, by their nature, can only be offered to registered visitors. Registered visitors are free to change the personal data given at registration at any time or to have them deleted from the database of the data controller.

Upon request, the data controller will provide any data subject at any time with information as to which personal data relating to the data subject are stored. The data controller also corrects personal data at the request or notice of the data subject if this does not conflict with any statutory retention requirements. The data protection officer named in this Data Protection Statement and the entire staff of the data controller are available to the data subject as contacts in this context.

7. Contact on the website

Due to legal requirements, the website of WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH gives information that enables the visitor to contact us directly including an E-mail address. If a data subject contacts the data controller by E-mail or through a contact form, the personal data provided by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted voluntarily by the data subject to the controller are stored for processing or contacting the data subject. These personal data are not disclosed to third parties.

8. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The data controller processes and stores personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the storage purpose or if this is required by law, regulation or other legislation of the European Directives and Regulatory bodies or another legislator the data controller is subjected to.

If the storage purpose is no longer valid or a storage period prescribed by European Directives and Regulatory bodies or any other relevant legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted according to statutory provisions.

9. Rights of the data subject

a) Right to confirmation

Each data subject has the right to request confirmation from the data controller according to the European Directive and the Regulatory bodies when the processing of personal data is taking place. A data subject wishing to exercise this right of confirmation may contact our data protection officer or any other employee of the data controller at any time.

b) Right to information

Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulatory bodies, to obtain from the data controller information free of charge at any time on any personal data of the data subject stored and a copy of that information. According to the European Directive and the Regulatory bodies, the data subject is entitled to the following information:

  • the processing purposes
  • the categories of personal data being processed
  • the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, particularly to recipients in third countries or international organizations
  • if possible, the planned duration for which the personal data will be stored or, if that is not possible, the criteria for determining that duration
  • the existence of a right to the rectification or erasure of personal data concerning the data subjects or to the limitation of the processing by the data controller or of a right to object to such processing
  • the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority
  • if the personal data are not collected from the data subject: all available information on the origin of the data
  • the existence of automated decision-making including profiling according to Articles 22 (1) and (4) of the GDPR and – at least in these cases – meaningful information on the logic involved, and the extent and intended impact of such processing on the data subject

The data subject also has the right to know whether personal data have been transmitted to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, then the data subject has the right to obtain information about appropriate guarantees relating to the transmission.

A data subject wishing to exercise this right of information may contact our data protection officer or any other employee of the data controller at any time.

c) Right to rectification

Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and the Regulatory bodies to demand the immediate correction of any wrong personal data. Considering the purpose of processing, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data including the use of a supplementary declaration.

A data subject wishing to exercise this right of correction may contact our data protection officer or any other employee of the data controller at any time.

d) Right to deletion (right to be forgotten)

Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and the Regulatory bodies to require the data controller to delete any personal data immediately provided that one of the following reasons applies and the processing is not required:

  • The personal data have been collected for such purposes or otherwise processed for which they are no longer necessary.
  • The data subject revokes the consent on which the processing was based according to Article 6 (1) (a) of GDPR or Article 9 (2) (a) of GDPR and lacks any other legal basis for the processing.
  • The data subject objects to the processing according to Article 21 (1) GDPR and there are no overriding valid reasons for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing according to Article 21 (2) GDPR.
  • Personal data have been processed unlawfully.
  • The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under EU law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.
  • The personal data were collected in relation to information society services offered according to Art. 8 (1) GDPR.

If one of the above reasons applies and data subjects wish to effect the deletion of personal data stored by WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH, they may at any time contact our data protection officer or any other employee of the data controller. The data protection officer of WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH or any other employee will arrange for immediate processing of the deletion request.

If the personal data has been made public by WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH and our company is responsible for deleting personal data as the data controller according to Art. 17 (1) GDPR, WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH will take appropriate measures considering the available technology and the implementation costs. This includes measures of a technical nature to inform other data controllers who process the personal data published that the data subject has requested the other data controllers to delete all links to those personal data or copies thereof if the processing is not necessary. The data protection officer of WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH or any other employee will take the necessary steps.

e) Right to restriction of processing

Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and the Regulatory bodies to require the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions applies:

  • The data subject disputes that the personal data are correct for a period during which the data controller can verify whether the personal data are correct.
  • The processing is unlawful; the data subject refuses the deletion of the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data.
  • The data controller no longer needs the personal data for processing. The data subject, however, needs the personal data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
  • The data subject has lodged an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh those of the data subject.

If one of the above conditions applies and data subjects wish to request the restriction of personal data stored by WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH, they may at any time contact our data protection officer or any other employee of the data controller. The data protection officer of WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH or any other employee will arrange for the restriction of processing.

f) Right to data portability

Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and the Regulatory bodies to receive any personal data that the data subject provided to the data controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. The data subject also has the right to transmit those data to another data controller without hindrance by the data controller to whom the personal data was given, provided that the processing is based on the consent according to Article 6 (1) (a) of GDPR or Art. 9 (2) (a) of GDPR or based on a contract according to Article 6 (1) (b) of GDPR and the processing is carried out by automated procedures unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of public authority delegated to the controller.

When exercising the right to data portability according to Art. 20 (1) GDPR, the data subject also has the right to have the personal data transferred directly from one data controller to another if this is technically feasible and does not affect the rights and freedoms of others.

To assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact the data protection officer appointed by WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH or any other employee.

g) Right to objection

Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and the Regulatory bodies to object at any time, arising from its particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning the data subject according to Article 6 (1) (e) or f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH will no longer process personal data in the case of an objection unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

If WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH processes personal data to conduct direct advertising, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling associated with direct marketing. If the data subject objects to WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH processing the data for the purposes of direct marketing, WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH will no longer process the personal data for this purpose.

The data subject also has the right to object to the processing of personal data by WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH for scientific, historical research or statistical purposes according to Art. 89 (1) GDPR for reasons arising from a particular situation unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.

To exercise the right to object, the data subject may at any time contact the data protection officer of WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH or any other employee. The data subject may also exercise the right of objection in relation to the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and the Regulatory bodies not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling that has a legal effect on it or, in a similar manner, significantly affects it; unless the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) permitted by EU or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) with the express consent of the data subject.

If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is made with the express consent of the data subject, WEILER Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the data controller, to state his or her own position and to challenge the decision.

A data subject wishing to assert rights relating to automated decisions may contact our data protection officer or any other employee of the data controller at any time.

i) Right to revoke consent under data protection law

Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and the Regulatory bodies to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

A data subject wishing to assert the right to revoke consent may contact our data protection officer or any other employee of the data controller at any time.

10. Legal basis of processing

Art. 6 I (a) GDPR is used by our company as a legal basis for processing for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I (b) GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I (c) GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or any other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I (d) GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I (f) GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject prevail. Such processing operations are permitted because the European legislator has mentioned them specifically. In that regard, the European legislator took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the data controller (recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).

11. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the data controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I (f) GDPR, our legitimate interest is to conduct our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.

12. Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of storing of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted if they are no longer required to fulfil or initiate a contract.

13. Legal or contractual regulations for providing personal data; the necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; potential consequences of non-provision

We will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for concluding a contract that a data subject makes personal data available to us that we then must process. A data subject entering into a contract with us is obliged to provide us with personal data. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject would not be concluded. Before providing personal data, the data subject must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer informs the data subject in individual cases whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, if an obligation exists to provide the personal data and what consequences the non-provision of the personal data would have.

14. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
