Thank you for your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH. It is essentially possible to use the internet pages of Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH without any indication of personal data. If a data subject wishes to make use of special services offered by our company using our internet page, it may, however, be necessary for personal data to be processed. If it is necessary to process personal data, and if there is no legal basis for this processing, we shall generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data, for example, the name, address, email address or telephone number of a data subject, always occurs in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in compliance with data protection provisions for Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH valid in the specific state. Our company wishes to use this privacy statement to inform the public of the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Moreover, data subjects will be informed of their rights in this privacy statement.
Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH has, as data controller, implemented various technical and organisational measures to ensure protection of the personal data processed on these internet pages that is as complete as possible. However, internet-based data transfer can have security vulnerabilities, and thus absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us using alternative methods, for example, by telephone.
1. Definitions of terms used
The privacy statement of Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH is based on terms that were used by the European regulators on the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our privacy statement should be easy for the public and also for our customers and business partners to read and be comprehensible. To ensure that this is the case, we would like to explain the terms used.
Some of the terms used in this privacy statement are:
a) personal data
Personal data is all information that refers to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter known as “data subject“). A natural person is considered as identifiable who can be identified directly or indirectly, especially by means of assignment to an identifier such as a name, identification number, location data, online identification or one or more special features that are an expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.
b) data subject
A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller.
Processing is any operation performed with or without the aid of automated processes or any such series of operations in conjunction with personal data such collection, organisation, ordering, storage, adaption or amendment, selection, retrieval, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or another form of provision, alignment or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting its future processing.
Profiling is any kind of automated processing of personal data consisting of use of this personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects that refer to a natural person, especially for analysis or prediction of aspects regarding work output, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, place of residence or change of location of this natural person
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be ascribed to a specific data subject, in so far as this additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures that guarantee that the personal data cannot be assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller or data controller
The controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that, alone or together with others, decides on the purpose and use of processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria of its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.
The processor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
The recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to whom personal data is disclosed, irrespective of whether or not they are a third party. Authorities that potentially obtain personal data within the context of a specific research assignment according to Union or Member State Law shall not, however, be considered as recipients.
j) Third party
A third party is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who are authorised under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor to process the personal data.
Consent is any unambiguous expression of will by the data subject voluntarily for the specific case in an informed manner in the form of a declaration or another clearly confirmatory action by which the data subject gives to understand that they are in agreement with the processing of the personal data concerning them.
2. Name and address of the data controller
Controller according to the General Data Processing Regulation, other currently valid data protection legislation in the member states of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature:

4. Collection of general data and information
The internet site of Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH collects a range of general data and information each time the internet site is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the logfiles of the server. The following can be collected: (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the internet site from which an accessing system reaches our internet site (“referrer“), (4) the sub-websites that are controlled by an accessing system on our internet site, (5) the date and the time of access to the internet site, (d) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serves as security in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. This information is rather used (1) to deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) to optimise the contents of our internet site and also its advertising, (3) to guarantee the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and technology of our internet site and also (4) to provide law enforcement agencies with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber-attack. This anonymously collected data and information is thus evaluated by Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH statistically and moreover, with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server logfiles is separated from all the personal data specified by a data subject.
5. Contact via the internet site
Due to statutory regulations, the internet site of Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH contains information that enables rapid electronic contact with our company and also direct communication with us, that also includes a general address of the electronic post (email address). In so far as a data subject makes contact with the controller by email or a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted by the data subject to the controller is stored for the purposes of processing or contact with the data subject. None of this personal data is forwarded to third parties.
6. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
The personal data processed and stored for processing from the data subject for the controller is only required to achieve the purpose of storage or in so far as this was provided for by the European Legislator on Directives and Regulations or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject for the processing.
If the purpose of storage is not applicable or if a storage period prescribed by the European Legislator on Directives and Regulations expires, the personal data shall be routinely blocked or deleted corresponding with legal provisions.
7. Rights of data subject
a) Right to confirmation
Each data subject has the right granted by the European Legislator on Directives and Regulations to request confirmation by the data controller regarding whether personal data concerning them is being processed. If a data subject wishes to assert their right to confirmation, they can apply to an employee of data controller at any time.

- the existence of a right of complaint to a supervisory authority
- if the personal data is not collected from the data subject: all available information about the data origin
- the existence of automated decision making including profiling according to Art. 22 Sections 1 and 4 GDPR and – at least in these cases – significant information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing on the data subject
Moreover, the data subject has the right to information if personal data was transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject has the right to obtain information about appropriate guarantees in conjunction with the data transfer.
If a data subject wishes to assert this right to information, they can apply to an employee of the data controller at any time.
c) Right to correction
Each data subject has the right granted by the European Legislator on Directives and Regulations to request the prompt correction of inaccurate personal data concerning them. Moreover, the data subject has the right, taking into account the purposes of processing, to request the completion of incomplete personal data, also by means of a supplementary declaration.
If a data subject wishes to assert this right to correction, they can apply to an employee of the data controller at any time.
d) Right to deletion (right to be forgotten)
Each data subject has the right granted by the European Legislator on Directives and Regulations to request the prompt deletion of personal data concerning them, if one of the following reasons is applicable and in so far as processing is not required:
- The personal data was collected for such purposes or processed in such a way which is no longer necessary
- The data subject revokes their consent on which processing is based according to Art. 6 Section 1 Letter a GDPR or Art. 9 Section 2 Letter a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for processing
- The data subject objects to processing according to Art. 21 Section 1 GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for processing, or the data subject objects to processing according to Art. 21 Section 2 GDPR.
- The personal data was unlawfully processed.
- The deletion of the personal data was required to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
- The personal data was collected in relation to services offered by the information society according to Art. 8 Section 1 GDPR.
If one of the above reasons applies and a data subject wishes to have personal data deleted stored by Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH, they can apply to an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee will take measures to ensure that the request for deletion is complied with without delay.
If the personal data of Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH is disclosed and our company undertakes responsibility to delete the personal data according to Art. 17 Section 1 GDPR, Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH will take appropriate measures, taking account of the available technology and implementation costs, also of a technical nature, to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data, that the data subject has requested from these other data controllers the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replicas of this personal data, in so far as processing is not required. The employee of Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH will arrange the necessary in individual cases.
e) Right to restriction of processing
Each data subject has the right granted by the European Legislator on Directives and Regulations to request that data be restricted by the controller, if one of the following conditions is met:
- The accuracy of the personal data is disputed by the data subject, and, indeed for a duration that enables the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
- The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses the deletion of personal data and instead requests the restriction of use of personal data.
- The controller no longer requires the personal data for the purposes of processing, the data subject, however, requires it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
- The data subject objects to processing according to Art. 21 Section 1 GDPR and it is not yet established whether the legitimate grounds of the controller take priority over those of the data subject.
If one of the above conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data that is stored by Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH, they can apply to an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH will take measures to restrict the processing of data.
f) Right to data portability
Each data subject has the right granted by the European Legislator on Directives and Regulations to obtain personal data relating to them which was provided to the controller by the data subject, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. They also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without obstruction by the controller to whom the personal data was provided, if processing is based on consent according to Art. 6 Section 1 Letter a GDPR or Art. 9 Section 2 Letter a GDPR and processing occurs by means of automated processes, unless processing is required for the performance of a task that is in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority, that was transferred to the controller.
Moreover, the data subject, in exerting their right to data portability according to Art. 20 Section 1 GDPR, has the right to ensure that the personal data is transferred directly from a controller to another controller, in so far as this is technically feasible and if this does not impact negatively on the rights and freedoms of other persons.
The data subject can apply to an employee of Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH at any time to assert the right to data portability.
g) Right of objection
Each data subject has the right granted by the European Legislator on Directives and Regulations to object to the processing of personal data concerning them at any time as a result of Art. 6 Section 1 Letters e or f GDPR, for reasons resulting from their particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
In the event of any objection, Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH will no longer process personal data, unless we can demonstrate overriding legitimate reasons for processing that take priority over the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH processes personal data to carry out direct advertising, the data subject has the right to object to the processing of personal data for the purposes of such advertising at any time. This also applies to profiling, in so far as it is associated with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to processing by Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH of their personal data for the purposes of direct advertising, Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH will no longer process their personal data for these purposes.
The data subject also has the right to object to processing by Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH of their personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes for reasons that result from their own particular situation, according to Art. 89 Section 1 GDPR, unless such processing is required to fulfil a task in the public interest.
The data subject can apply directly to any employee of Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH or to another employee to exercise their right of objection. Moreover, the data subject is free to exercise their right of objection using automated processes for which technical specifications are used in conjunction with the use of services of the information society, notwithstanding the Directive 2002/58/EG.
h) ) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling
Each data subject has the right granted by the European Legislator on Directives and Regulations not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that impacts on them with legal effect or significantly impacts on them in another similar way, if the decision (1) is not required for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) by reason of legislation of the Union or Member States to which the controller is subject, is admissible and this legislation includes appropriate measures for the preservation of rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject or (3) results in the express consent of the data subject.
If the decision (1) is required for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between the data subject and the controller or (2) results in the express consent of the data subject, Negele Hartmetall Technik GmbH shall take appropriate measures to preserve the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the controller, to state their own position and to challenge the decision.
If the data subject wishes to assert rights relating to automated decisions, they can apply to an employee of the data controller at any time.
i) Right to revoke consent under data protection law
Each data subject has the right granted by the European Legislator on Directives and Regulations to revoke consent to processing of personal data at any time. If the data subject asserts their right to revoke consent, they can apply to an employee of the person responsible for processing at any time.
8. Data protection for applications and application processes
The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purposes of handling application procedures. Processing can also occur electronically. This is specifically the case if an applicant submits relevant application documents electronically, for example, by email or via an internet web form, to the data controller. If the data controller concludes a contract of employment with an applicant, the data submitted for the purposes of handling the employment relationship is stored in accordance with legal provisions. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant by the data controller, the application documents are deleted automatically two months after notification of the rejection decision provided that no other legitimate interests of the data controller prevent deletion. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equality Act (AGG).
9. Data protection provisions for application and use of Google AdWords
The data controller has integrated Google AdWords into this internet site. Google AdWords is a service for internet advertising that allows advertisers to set certain keywords in advance, to switch on both advertisements in Google search engine results and in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords enables advertisers to set certain keywords in advance by which an advertisement is shown in the Google search engine results, if the user accesses a search result relevant to the keyword using the search engine. In the Google advertising network, the advertisements are distributed using an automatic algorithm and taking into account the previously set key words on internet pages relevant to the topic.
The operating company for Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our internet page by inserting interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third-party companies and into the search engine results of the Google search engine and inserting third party advertising on our internet site.
If a data subject accesses a Google advertisement on our internet site, a “conversion cookie“ is placed on the information technology system of the data subject by Google. The term “cookies“ has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to track whether certain subpages, for example, the shopping basket of an online shopping system, were accessed on our internet site. The conversion cookie can assist us and Google to understand whether a data subject who has accessed our internet site via an AdWords advertisement, has generated sales, thus has completed or cancelled a goods purchase.
The data and information collected by using conversion cookies is used by Google to issue visitor statistics for our internet site. These visitor statistics are used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords advertisements and to optimise our AdWords advertisements for the future. Neither our company nor our advertising customers from Google AdWords obtain information from Google through which the data subject can be identified.
Personal information, for example, the internet sites visited by the data subject, is stored using the conversion cookie. For every visit to our website, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical process with third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our internet site, as shown above, at any time by using a relevant setting of the internet browser and thus can permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the internet browser used would also prevent Google placing a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programmes.
Moreover, the data subject can object to interest-related advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must access the link www.google.de/settings/ads from any of the internet browsers they use and enable the desired settings there.
Other information and the valid data protection provisions by Google can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/
10. Data protection provisions for application and use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies,” text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there. However, in the event IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Treaty on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there only on an exceptional basis. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators, and providing other services to website operators relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google will not associate the IP address transmitted under Google Analytics by your browser with other data held by Google. You may prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software; however, we should inform you in this case that you might not be able to enjoy all of the functionality of this website to its full extent. You may additionally prevent the recording of the data (including your IP address) to Google that is generated by the cookie and that pertains to your use of the website, or the processing of these data, by downloading and installing the following browser plug-in available through the following link: [http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de]. In view of the discussion about the use of analytics tools with full IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()” which means that IP addresses are used only in a shortened form in order to prevent any direct correlation to specific persons. For browsers on mobile devices, please click this link to, in future, prevent anonymous tracking by Google Analytics and to activate a so-called “opt-out cookie” for your browser.
11. Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves as a legal basis for our company for processing operations by which we obtain consent for our specific processing purposes. If the processing of personal data is required for the fulfilment of a contract whose contracting party is the data subject, as is, for example, the case for processing operations that are necessary for the supply of goods or the fulfilment of another service or consideration, processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. B GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are required 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 processing of personal data is required, such as, for example, to fulfil tax obligations, processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. C GDPR. In rare cases, processing of personal data could be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were to be injured and their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be forwarded to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. D GDPR. Processing operations not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis, if processing is required to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, if the interests, basic rights and freedoms of the data subject are not a priority. We are therefore permitted to carry out such processing operations, in particular, as they were specified by the European legislator. In this respect, the legislator took the view that a legitimate interest could be accepted if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47, Sentence 2 GDPR).
12. Legitimate interests of processing carried out by the controller or a third party
If processing of personal data is based on Art. 6 I lit f GDPR, our legitimate interest is the implementation of our business activities for the benefit of the wellbeing of all our employees and our shareholders.
13. Duration for which personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the relevant data is routinely deleted, if it is no longer required for fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
14. Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data; requirement for contract conclusion; obligation of the data subject to provide personal data; potential consequences of non-provision
We must make it clear that the provision of personal data is partly prescribed by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can result from contractual regulations (e.g. data to a contracting partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded for a data subject to provide us with personal data which, as a consequence, has to be processed by us. The data subject must, for example, undertake to provide us with personal data, if our company concludes a contract with them. Non-provision of personal data would result in non-conclusion of the contract with the data subject. Before the provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject must apply to one of our employees. Our employee will clarify to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether provision of personal data is legally or contractually prescribed or required for conclusion of the contract, whether an obligation exists to provide personal data and the consequences for non-provision of personal data.
15. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we refrain from automated decision-making or profiling.
