Foreword to data transmission in the business association
We transmit personal data for sales purposes and for the processing of our orders within the Wittmann Tec Group GmbH group of companies ("WITTMANN Group"), Lichtblaustraße 10, 1220 Vienna.
The processing is necessary for the performance of a contract or a pre-contractual measure pursuant to Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR and the processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party pursuant to Article 4 (19) in conjunction with Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO and the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden.
Pursuant to recital 48 to the GDPR, we have a legitimate interest in transferring personal data to affiliates of the Group for internal administrative purposes, including the processing of personal data of customers and employees.
With the following information, we would like to give you as a "data subject" an overview of the processing of your personal data by us and your rights under the data protection laws. In principle, it is possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you want to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent.
The processing of personal data, such as your name, address or e-mail address, is always in line with the Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to "WITTMANN Technology Ges.m.b.H.". By means of this data protection declaration, we would like to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us.
As the controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are also free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or by post.
You too can take simple and easy-to-implement measures to protect yourself against unauthorised access to your data by third parties. Therefore, we would like to give you some tips on how to handle your data securely:
- Protect your account (login, user or customer account) and your IT system (computer, laptop, tablet or mobile device) with strong passwords.
- Only you should have access to the passwords.
- Make sure that you only ever use your passwords for one account (login, user or customer account).
- Do not use one password for different websites, applications or online services.
- Particularly when using publicly accessible IT systems or IT systems shared with other people, the following applies: It is imperative that you log out again after each login to a website, an application or an online service.
Passwords should consist of at least 12 characters and be chosen so that they cannot be easily guessed. Therefore, they should not contain common words from everyday life, one's own name or names of relatives, but upper and lower case, numbers and special characters.
2. Person in charge
The responsible person within the meaning of the DS-GVO is:
WITTMANN Technology Ges.m.b.H.
Lichtblaustrasse 10, 1220 Vienna, Austria
Representative of the person responsible: The management
3. Data protection officer
You can reach the Data Protection Officer as follows:
You can contact our data protection officer directly at any time with all questions and suggestions regarding data protection.
The data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance Maker when enacting the General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller (our company).
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
- Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data which consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
A recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.
- Third party
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.
Consent means any freely given and informed indication of the data subject's wishes in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
5. Legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO (in conjunction with § 25 para. 1 TTDSG) serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in 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 you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. c DS-GVO.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data might be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DS-GVO.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary for the protection of a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
Our offer is basically aimed at adults. Persons under 16 years of age may not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. We do not request personal data from children and young people, do not collect it and do not pass it on to third parties.
6. Transmission of data to third parties
Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.
We will only share your personal data with third parties if:
1. you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO,
2. the disclosure is permissible in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO to protect our legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data,
3. in the event that a legal obligation exists for the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 (1) c DS-GVO, as well as
4. this is legally permissible and necessary according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO for the processing of contractual relationships with you.
In order to protect your data and to allow us to transfer data to third countries (outside the EU/EEA) where appropriate, we have entered into commissioned processing agreements based on the European Commission's standard contractual clauses. This sometimes does not apply in the case of a data transfer to third countries for which the European Commission has issued an adequacy decision in accordance with Art. 45 DS-GVO.
7.1 SSL/TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact enquiries that you send to us as the operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser contains a "https://" instead of a "http://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.
7.2 Data collection when visiting the website
When you use our website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (in so-called "server log files"). Our website collects a series of general data and information each time you or an automated system access a page. This general data and information is stored in the server log files. The following can be recorded
1. Browser types and versions used,
2. the operating system used by the accessing system,
3. the website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (so-called referrer),
4. the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
5. the date and time of access to the website,
6. an abbreviated internet protocol address (anonymised IP address) as well as,
7. the Internet service provider of the accessing system.
When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about your person. Rather, this information is required in order to
1. to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
2. to optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it,
3. to ensure the permanent operability of our IT systems and the technology of our website, and
4. to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.
Therefore, the data and information collected will be evaluated by us, on the one hand, statistically and, on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise so as to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above.
7.3 Cloudflare (Content Delivery Network)
Our website uses functions from CloudFlare. The provider is CloudFlare, Inc. 665 3rd St. #200, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.
CloudFlare offers a globally distributed content delivery network with DNS. Technically, the information transfer between your browser and our website is routed via CloudFlare's network. CloudFlare is thus able to analyse the data traffic between users and our websites, for example, in order to detect and ward off attacks on our services. In addition, CloudFlare may store cookies on your computer for optimisation and analysis.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
We have concluded a corresponding agreement with Cloudflare on the basis of the German Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) for commissioned processing or in accordance with EU standard contractual clauses. Cloudflare collects statistical data about visits to this website. The access data includes: Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider. Cloudflare uses the log data for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of the offer.
If you have consented to Cloudflare being used, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO. In addition, we have a legitimate interest in using Cloudflare to optimise our online offering and make it more secure. The corresponding legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. The personal data will be retained for as long as they are required to fulfil the purpose of the processing. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose.
The transfer of your personal data to the USA takes place on the basis of the standard contractual clauses.

8.1 General information about cookies
Information is stored in the cookie that results in each case from the context of the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we gain direct knowledge of your identity.
In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a certain fixed period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognised that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.
The data processed by the cookies, which are required for the proper functioning of the website, are thus necessary to protect our legitimate interests as well as those of third parties in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO.
For all other cookies, you must have given your consent to this within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO via our opt-in cookie banner.
8.3 Notes on avoiding cookies in common browsers
You can delete cookies, allow only selected cookies or completely deactivate cookies at any time via the settings of the browser you are using. You can find more information on the support pages of the respective providers:
9. Contents of our website
9.1 Contact / Contact form
Personal data is collected when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Which data is collected in the case of the use of a contact form can be seen from the respective contact form. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of answering your request or for contacting you and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. If your contact is aimed at concluding a contract, the additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DS-GVO. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your request; this is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations.
10. Newsletter dispatch
10.1 Newsletter dispatch to existing customers
If you have provided us with your e-mail address when purchasing goods or services, we reserve the right to regularly send you offers for similar goods or services to those already purchased from our range by e-mail. In accordance with Section 7 (3) of the German Unfair Competition Act (UWG), we do not need to obtain your separate consent for this. In this respect, the data processing is carried out solely on the basis of our legitimate interest in personalised direct advertising in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. If you have initially objected to the use of your e-mail address for this purpose, we will not send you any e-mails. You are entitled to object to the use of your e-mail address for the aforementioned advertising purpose at any time with effect for the future by notifying the responsible person named at the beginning. This will only incur transmission costs for you according to the basic rates. After receipt of your objection, the use of your e-mail address for advertising purposes will cease immediately.
10.2 Advertising newsletter
On our website, you are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company newsletter. Which personal data is transmitted to us when you order the newsletter can be seen from the input mask used for this purpose.
We inform our customers and business partners about our offers at regular intervals by means of a newsletter. The newsletter of our company can only be received by you if
1. you have a valid e-mail address and
2. you have registered to receive the newsletter.
For legal reasons, a confirmation email is sent to the email address you entered for the first time for the newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation email is used to check whether you, as the owner of the email address, have authorised receipt of the newsletter.
When you register for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the IT system used by you at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration, which is assigned by your internet service provider (ISP). The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of your e-mail address at a later date and therefore serves our legal protection.
The personal data collected in the context of a registration for the newsletter is used exclusively for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a related registration, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical circumstances. No personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will be passed on to third parties. You can cancel your subscription to our newsletter at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that you have given us for the newsletter dispatch can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking consent, you will find a corresponding link in each newsletter. Furthermore, it is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on our website or to inform us of this in another way.
The legal basis for data processing for the purpose of sending newsletters is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO.
11. Our activities in social networks
So that we can also communicate with you in social networks and inform you about our services, we are represented there with our own pages. If you visit one of our social media pages, we are jointly responsible for the processing operations triggered by this, within the meaning of Art. 26 DS-GVO, with the provider of the respective social media platform.
We are not the original provider of these pages, but only use them within the scope of the possibilities offered to us by the respective providers.
As a precaution, we therefore point out that your data may also be processed outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. Use may therefore be associated with data protection risks for you, as it may be more difficult to protect your rights, e.g. to information, deletion, objection, etc., and the processing in the social networks often takes place directly for advertising purposes or for the analysis of user behaviour by the providers, without this being able to be influenced by us. If usage profiles are created by the provider, cookies are often used or the usage behaviour is assigned to your own member profile of the social networks.
The described processing of personal data is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO on the basis of our legitimate interest and the legitimate interest of the respective provider in order to be able to communicate with you in a timely manner or to inform you about our services. If you have to give your consent to data processing as a user with the respective providers, the legal basis refers to Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO in conjunction with Art. 7 DS-GVO. Art. 7 DS-GVO.
As we do not have access to the providers' databases, we would like to point out that it is best to exercise your rights (e.g. to information, correction, deletion, etc.) directly with the respective provider. Further information on the processing of your data in the social networks and the possibility to make use of your right of objection or revocation (so-called opt-out) is listed below at the respective provider of social networks used by us:
(Co-) Responsible for data processing in Europe:
Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland
(Co-) Responsible for data processing in Europe:
LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland
(Co-) Responsible for data processing in Europe:
Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland
12. Web analysis
We have integrated the Matomo component of the provider InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, on this website. Matomo is a software tool for web analysis, i.e. for collecting, collating and evaluating data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, data is collected about the website from which a data subject has accessed a website (so-called referrer), which sub-pages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page has been viewed. This is used to optimise the website and for cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The software is operated on the server of the data controller, and the log files, which are sensitive under data protection law, are stored exclusively on this server.
Matomo sets a cookie on your IT system. Setting the cookie enables us to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, the Internet browser on your IT system is automatically prompted by the Matomo component to transmit data to our server for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical procedure, we obtain knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which we use, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks.
By means of the cookie, personal information, such as the time of access, the place from which access originated and the frequency of visits to our website are stored. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection you are using, is transmitted to our server. This personal data is stored by us. We do not pass on this personal data to third parties.
You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Matomo from setting a cookie on your IT system. In addition, a cookie already set by Matomo can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programmes.
Furthermore, you have the option to object to the collection of data generated by Matomo and related to a use of this website and to prevent such a collection by clicking on the following link: Deactivate Matomo. If your IT system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the data subject must set an opt-out cookie again. We would like to point out that these measures may mean that not all functions of our website are available.
These processing operations are only carried out when explicit consent is given in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO.
13. Partner and affiliate programmes
This website contains components of DoubleClick by Google. DoubleClick is a brand of Google (Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland), under which special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and publishers.
DoubleClick by Google transfers data to the DoubleClick server with each impression as well as with clicks or other activities. Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to your browser. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie on your IT system. The purpose of the cookie is to optimise and display advertising. The cookie is used, among other things, to serve and display user-relevant advertising and to create reports on advertising campaigns or to improve them. Furthermore, the cookie is used to avoid multiple displays of the same advertisement.
DoubleClick uses a cookie ID, which is required to process the technical procedure. The cookie ID is required, for example, to display an advertisement in a browser. DoubleClick can also use the cookie ID to record which advertisements have already been displayed in a browser in order to avoid duplicate placements. Furthermore, the cookie ID enables DoubleClick to record conversions.
A DoubleClick cookie does not contain any personal data. However, a DoubleClick cookie can contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier serves to identify the campaigns with which you have already been in contact.
Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website operated by us and on which a DoubleClick component has been integrated, the internet browser on your IT system is caused by the respective DoubleClick component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of data that Google also uses to generate commission statements. Among other things, Google can track that you have clicked on certain links on our website.
You can prevent DoubleClick and our website from setting cookies at any time by adjusting your internet browser settings accordingly. In addition, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programmes.
These processing operations are only carried out when explicit consent is given in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO.
14. Plugins and other services
14.1 Google Photos
We use the online service of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, to store images embedded on our homepage.
Embedding is the integration of certain external content (text, video or image data) that is provided by another website (Google Photos) and then appears on our own website (our website). A so-called embedding code is used for embedding. If we have integrated an embedding code, the external content from Google Photos is displayed immediately by default as soon as one of our web pages is visited.
Your IP address is transmitted to Google Photos via the technical implementation of the embed code that enables the display of the images from Google Photos. Google Photos also records our website, the type of browser used, the browser language, the time and length of access. In addition, Google Photos may collect information about which of our sub-pages you have visited and which links have been clicked on, as well as other interactions that you have carried out when visiting our site. This data may be stored and analysed by Google Photos.
These processing operations are only carried out if express consent has been given in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a DS-GVO.
14.2 Google WebFonts
Our website uses so-called Web Fonts for the uniform display of fonts. The Google WebFonts are provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Ireland Limited is part of the Google group of companies with headquarters at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
These processing operations are only carried out if express consent has been given in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a DS-GVO.
14.3 YouTube (videos)
We have integrated YouTube components on this website. The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognises which specific subpage of our website you are visiting when you call up a subpage that contains a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to your YouTube account.
YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that you have visited our website if you are logged into YouTube at the same time as calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether you click on a YouTube video or not. If you do not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, you can prevent the transmission by logging out of your YouTube account before accessing our website.
These processing operations are only carried out if express consent has been given in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a DS-GVO.

You also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from us to whom the personal data has been provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR or Article 9 (2) (a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR and the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us.
Furthermore, when exercising your right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, you have the right to have the personal data transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.
15.7 Objection Art. 21 DS-GVO
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) (data processing in the public interest) or (f) (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests) of the GDPR.
This also applies to profiling based on these provisions within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 DS-GVO.
If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or where the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
In individual cases, we process personal data in order to carry out direct advertising. You may object to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising at any time. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If you object to us processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, you have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out by us for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the Data Protection Regulation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
You are free to exercise your right to object in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
15.8 Revocation of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time with effect for the future.
15.9 Complaint to a supervisory authority
You have the right to complain about our processing of personal data to a supervisory authority responsible for data protection.
16. Routine storage, deletion and blocking of personal data
We process and store your personal data only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or if this has been provided for by the legal provisions to which our company is subject.
If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a prescribed storage period expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
17. Duration of the storage of personal data
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
Due to the further development of our Internet pages and offers or due to changed legal or official requirements, it may become necessary to change this data protection declaration. You can access and print out the current data protection declaration at any time on the website under "https://www.wittmann-group.com/en/imprint".
