Together with our customers we create an individual package of hardware, software, hotline and training. Personal data is collected, processed or used for the purpose of fulfilling this corporate purpose or supporting secondary purposes, such as customer consulting or the further development of technical diagnostic solutions for our customers.
Personal data is collected, processed or used for the purpose of fulfilling this corporate purpose or supporting secondary purposes, such as customer consulting.
How do we collect your data?
On the one hand, your data is collected when you provide it to us. This can be, for example, data that you enter in a contact form or provide when making an offer. The provision of data is voluntary and is subject to your decision.
Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. These are mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of page view). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
What do we use your data for?
Some of the data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyze your user behavior. Data that is collected personally from you and not via the website is used to create the customer number, order processing but also for your support and sending newsletters, offers and service offers.
Groups of data subjects and related data or data categories
The groups of data subjects are
- current employees,
- former employees,
- prospective customers,
- service providers and
- other business partners.
The related data includes all personal data that is required to fulfill the respective purpose.
Processing of personal data is only lawful if permitted by law, i.e., if there is a legal basis, or if the person has consented.
Personal data is processed in our company only in accordance with the statutory provisions. These are generally,
- if consent to the processing of personal data exists (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR),
- if personal data must be processed in order to fulfill a contract or initiate a contract (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR),
- if the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR) or
- when we process personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest or on the basis of a legitimate interest of a third party (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR).
Special feature on the legal basis of data processing for contractual purposes
WABCOWÜRTH Workshop Services GmbH directs its offer mainly to tradesmen. Therefore, when processing personal data for contractual purposes, the legal basis, unless otherwise specified in individual cases,
1. If you are a registered merchant or freelancer, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, the data processing for the purpose of implementing the contract or pre-contractual measures with the data subject; or
2. if you are acting as an employee of a company, e.g. as an employee in purchasing, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, the legitimate interest of WABCOWÜRTH Workshop Services GmbH. The legitimate interest of WABCOWÜRTH Workshop Services GmbH in this case is the sale of its own goods and services, which is justified in particular by entrepreneurial freedom as well as professional freedom.
In the following, for simplification purposes, we will only speak of "data processing for contractual purposes".
Potential recipients in the event of data transfer
The potential recipients of transferred personal data are
- public bodies, insofar as there is a legal obligation
- service providers and other business partners, insofar as it is necessary to fulfill the respective purpose and a legal provision permits or requires this or the data subject has consented. If it becomes necessary to transfer data to third countries, this will be done exclusively for the conclusion or fulfillment of contracts - insofar as this does not conflict with the interests of the data subject meriting protection - taking into account all data protection requirements. If, where applicable, there is an intention to transfer the personal data to a third country or an international organization, the data transfer shall take place on the basis of an adequacy decision. Should a data transfer nevertheless take place, we refer to the fact that suitable guarantees or binding internal data protection regulations exist, or that a strict standard is always applied in favor of the data subject when weighing the interests of the data subject and the contracting parties.
Standard period for the deletion of data
The deletion of personal data takes place in accordance with the respective applicable legal or contractual regulations for data deletion, taking into account legal or contractual retention obligations. Such legal obligations result, among other things, from the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO). The periods specified there for storage or documentation are up to ten years beyond the end of the business relationship or the pre-contractual legal relationship.
Furthermore, other statutory provisions may require a longer storage period, such as the preservation of evidence within the framework of the statutory limitation provisions. In this context, the regular statute of limitations is three years; however, in certain cases, statutes of limitations of up to 30 years or, in individual cases, even beyond this period may be applicable.
Personal data that is not subject to a legal or contractual obligation to retain or delete shall be deleted immediately after it has become superfluous for the fulfillment of the respective purpose.
Your rights regarding data protection (Art. 12 ff GDPR)
The data subject is entitled to various rights regarding data protection. These rights are explained below. To exercise these rights, the above contact details can be used.
Right to information (Art. 15), correction (Art. 16), restriction of processing (Art. 18) and deletion (Art. 17)

Right to object (Art. 21 GDPR)
Every data subject has the right to object to the processing of his or her data if the data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR or for direct marketing purposes. In the event of an objection to the processing of your personal data, we will examine your objection on a case-by-case basis. If we are required by data protection law to delete your personal data due to your objection, we will delete your data taking into account legal retention obligations. The objection does not affect the permissibility of the processing carried out up to the objection.
Right to information
Every data subject has the right to know whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether the data subject is obliged to provide the personal data, and what the possible consequences of not providing it would be.

In the event of violations of data protection law, the data subject has a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in matters of data protection law is the state data protection commissioner of the federal state in which our company is based.

When you call up our profile, the social network may store and evaluate your call-up as well as all other interactions by you on the website of the social network. This data is made available to the profile owners as statistics and processed by the social networks for advertising purposes, among other things.
The data processing usually follows the purpose of creating an interest profile of the visitor and using these profiles for advertising purposes. If a person calls up certain web pages, information about this call is evaluated and the provider assigns interests to the visitor. Based on the assigned interests, advertisements are displayed to the visitor. Interest-based advertisements can be displayed by the provider both within and outside the web pages of the social network.
Categories of data subjects
Persons who call up our profile on the respective social network (both users with an account with the social network provider and visitors without an account).
Assertion of your rights as a data subject
For information requests or to assert your further rights as a data subject, we recommend that you contact the provider directly, as only the provider has full access to the data processed in connection with a call to our profile or interaction with us at the social network. The contact information of the social networks on the exercise of your rights as a data subject can be found in the section "Information on the social networks used by us". In the case of data processing where there is joint responsibility between the social network provider and us, you also have the right to exercise your rights as a data subject against us. In such a case, we will forward your request to the social network insofar as the request concerns data or processing activities that are processed by the social network.
For more information on the processing activities of the social networks and the existing objection options, please refer to the respective providers.
