- Lawfulness of processing, fairness of processing, transparency

Phone: +49 7940 981863-0
The controller is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Purpose of the data collection, processing or use
We are specialists in the field of multi-brand diagnostics, windshield calibration systems and air conditioning service equipment and offer our customers suitable diagnostic solutions for motor vehicles, trailers, vans or buses. Together with our customers we create an individual package of hardware, software, hotline and training.

The collection, processing or use of personal data is carried out to fulfill this corporate purpose or supporting secondary purposes, such as customer advisory service
How do we collect your data?
Your data is collected on the one hand by you providing it to us. This can be, for example, data that you enter in a contact form or communicate when preparing 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. This is mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of page view). The collection of this data takes place 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 the sending of newsletters, offers and service offers.
Groups of persons concerned and related data or data categories
The affected groups of people are
- current employees,
- former employees,
- Interested parties,
- Service provider and
- other business partners.
The relevant data includes all personal data 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 usually,
- if there is consent to the processing of the personal data (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 comply with a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR) or
- if 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).
Specificity on the legal basis of data processing for contractual purposes
WABCOWÜRTH Workshop Services GmbH directs its offer primarily to tradesmen. Therefore, when processing personal data for contractual purposes, the legal basis is, unless otherwise specified in the individual case,
1. if you are a registered trader or freelancer, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, the data processing is for the purpose of implementing the contract or pre-contractual measures with the data subject; or
2. if you act as an employee of a company, e.g. as an employee in purchasing, Art. 6 (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 based in particular on entrepreneurial freedom and professional freedom.
In the following, for the sake of simplicity, we will refer only to "data processing for contractual purposes".
Potential recipients in the event of data transfer
The potential recipients of transferred personal data are
- public bodies, if a legal obligation exists
- 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.
Planned data transfer to third countries
Should it become necessary to transfer data to third countries, this shall be done exclusively for the conclusion or fulfillment of contracts - insofar as this does not conflict with the interests of the data subject worthy of protection - taking into account all requirements under data protection law. 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 up the interests of the data subjects and the contracting parties.
Standard period for the deletion of data
The deletion of personal data is carried out 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 others, 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 retention period, such as the preservation of evidence within the scope of statutory limitation provisions. In this context, the regular statute of limitations is three years; in certain cases, however, statutes of limitations of up to 30 years or, in individual cases, even longer than this period may be applicable.
The deletion of personal data that is not subject to a legal or contractual obligation to retain or delete takes place immediately after it has become dispensable for the fulfillment of the respective purpose.
Your rights regarding data protection (Art. 12 ff GDPR)
The data subject has various rights with regard to data protection. These rights are explained below. The above contact details can be used to exercise these rights.
Right of access (Art. 15), rectification (Art. 16), restriction of processing (Art. 18) and erasure (Art. 17)

Every data subject has the right to object to the processing of his or her data if the data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) 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 that took place until the objection.
Right to information
Every data subject has the right to know whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or by 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 the personal data would be.

If the confirmation is not received, the registration to the newsletter will be deleted. Further data is not collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.
The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

Furthermore, customers and interested parties can contact us via this profile.

If you call up our profile, the social network can store and evaluate your call-up as well as all further 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.
As a rule, data processing 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 affected persons
People who access 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 exercise your other 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 on 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.
