Schmitt Spezialmaschinenbau GmbH, as the data controller, has implemented technical and organizational measures to ensure the most best-possible protection of personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
The data protection declaration of Schmitt Spezialmaschinenbau GmbH is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance Giver for the adoption of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO).

Use and Disclosure of Personal Data and Purpose Limitation
In accordance with the applicable data protection regulations, your personal data will only be collected, processed and used for the purpose of processing contracts and safeguarding our own legitimate business interests with regard to advising and supporting our customers and designing products to meet their needs.

Routine Deletion and Blocking of Personal Data
The party responsible for the processing shall process and store the personal data of the person concerned only for the period of time necessary to achieve the storage purpose. If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Generator expires, the personal data shall be blocked or deleted routinely and in accordance with the statutory provisions, insofar as it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of the contract.

Rights of the Person Concerned
On request, we will inform you in writing whether and which personal data we have stored in accordance with the applicable law, in accordance with Article 15 of the Data Protection Ordinance.
Any person concerned with the processing of his or her personal data shall have the right to request the party responsible for the processing to erase such data without delay

Schmitt Spezialmaschinenbau GmbH uses technical and organizational security measures in order to protect your data administered by us from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons.

If you have any questions regarding the processing of your personal data, you can contact our management, which is responsible for data protection, directly. Our management is also at your disposal for requests regarding information, applications or complaints.

Legal Basis of Processing
Art. 6 I lit. A DS-GVO serves our company as a 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 (e.g. delivery of goods or provision of other services) or pre-contractual measures (e.g. cases of inquiries regarding products and services), the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. B DS-GVO.

Duration for which the personal data is stored.
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, insofar as it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
