What do we process your data for (purpose of processing) and on what legal basis?

We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and our obligation to maintain confidentiality:

Data is processed to provice services in the area of planning and performing tests of technical industrial products with regards to quality, service life, reliability and environmental resistance, within the framework of the implementation of our contracts with our customers and suppliers and for the implementation of pre-contractual measures (e.g. preparation of offers, inquiries). The purposes of data processing primarily depend on the specific order or inquiry.

Based on your consent accorting to Art. 6 Para. 1a) GDPR

Insofar as you have given us consent to process personal data for specific purposes, the lawfulness of this processing is based on your consent. Consent given can be revoked at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent given to us prior to the application of the GDPR, i.e. prior to 25 May 2018. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the data processed until the revocation.

Within the framework of balancing of interests Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR

Where necessary, we process your data beyond the actual performance of the contract to protect the legitimate interests of us or our customers or suppliers.

Which sources do we use?

We process personal data that we receive from you or our customers, suppliers or interested parties within the scope of our contractual relationship. In addition, we process - insofar as necessary for the provision of our contractual services - personal data that we obtain from publicly accessible sources (e.g. trade and association registers, internet) or that are transmitted to us by other third parties (e.g. public authorities).

Who receives my data?

Your data will only be passed on if a legal basis permits or requires this.
We only give access to your data to those employees and professionals who need it to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations.

Is data transferred to a third country or to an international organisation?

Data is transferred to countries outside the European Union (so-called third countries) if:

  • it is necessary for the fulfillment of our contractual obligations
  • it is required by law or
  • we have your consent

To the extent necessary, we process your personal data for the duration of our contractual relationship, which also includes the initiation and execution of a contract.

If the data are no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual or legal obligations, they are regularly deleted, unless their - temporary - further processing is necessary for the following purposes:

  • for the fulfilment of retention obligations under commercial, tax, professional and labour law: These include the German Commercial Code (HGB), the German Fiscal Code (AO), the German Working Time Act (ArbZG) and the German Minimum Wage Act (MiLoG). As a rule, the retention and documentation periods specified there are ten years.
  • to preserve evidence within the framework of the statutory limitation provisions. According to §§ 195ff of the German Civil Code (BGB), these limitation periods can be up to 30 years, with the regular limitation period being 3 years.
