We process personal data that we have received from you in the context of our business relationship. In addition – to the extent necessary for the provision of our services – we process personal data that we have permissibly (e.g. in order to execute orders, comply with contracts, or due to consent you have issued) received from other companies within Wanzl Group or business partners performing external work, or service providers, or other third parties (e.g. credit information). In addition we process personal data that we have permissibly obtained from publicly accessible sources (e.g. records of debtors, commercial registers, the press, the media, and the internet), and are permitted to process. Personal data that we process in the context of the business relationship is as follows: your name, address, contact details, date of birth, order data, payment data, bank details, contract data, credit data, sales data, and documentation data (e.g. usage of our website, and newsletters).
We process personal data in compliance with the provisions of data protection laws:
Based on your consent (point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR)
In as far as you have issued us consent to process personal data for certain purposes, this processing is legally valid based on your consent. Once consent has been issued, it may be withdrawn at any time.
For compliance with contractual obligations (point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR)
If the processing of personal data is necessary for fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is party, as for example in the event of processing procedures which are necessary for the delivery of goods or provision of another service or return service, processing is based on point(b) of Article 6(1) GDPR. The same applies for such processing procedures as are necessary for the undertaking of pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of requests regarding our products and services.
Due to legal specifications or in the public interest (point (c) of Article 6(1) and point (e) Article 6(1) GDPR)
In addition, we process your personal data to the extent required under legal specifications, or for reasons of public interest such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations.
For the protection of the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person (point (d) of Article 6(1) GDPR)
In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company is injured and as a result their name, age, health insurance data, or other vital information needs to be transferred to a doctor, hospital, or other third party.
In the context of the balancing of interests (point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR)
When necessary, we process your data beyond the actual fulfilment of the contract in order to safeguard justified interests held by us or third parties, unless the interest, basic rights and basic freedoms of the data subject are overriding (e.g. credit information, marketing or market and opinion research, the establishment of legal claims and defence in the event of legal disputes, guaranteeing IT security, business management measures, and the further development of products and services).
Within Wanzl Group, those offices that require your data for the fulfilment of our contractual and legal obligations receive access to your data. Processors we contract may also receive data for the stated purposes. Other recipients of your data may be suppliers and service providers, for the purposes of implementing the business relationship, or public bodies and institutions in the event of a legal or official obligation. Additional data recipients may be those bodies to which you have provided us with your consent to transfer data.
The criteria for the duration of personal data storage are the purpose of processing and the respective statutory retention period. After the purpose of processing has been fulfilled, and taking into account the statutory retention period, the corresponding data is deleted or blocked unless it is still required for contract fulfilment or entering into a contract.
Personal data is only transferred to companies within Wanzl Group, or to suppliers and service providers in the context of contract fulfilment; these bodies may also be countries outside the EU. Personal data is not transferred to an international organisation. Personal data is only transferred if an appropriate level of data protection has been confirmed by the EU commission, or other appropriate data protection guarantees (such as standard EU contract clauses) are in place.
All data subjects have the right granted by the European policymaker and regulator to request confirmation from the controller responsible for processing as to whether their personal data is processed.
Right to access
All data subjects affected by the processing of personal data have the right granted by the European policymaker and regulator to at any time receive information free of charge from the controller responsible for processing regarding the data stored about the data subject’s person.
Right to rectification
All data subjects affected by the processing of personal data have the right granted by the European policymaker and regulator to request the immediate rectification of incorrect personal data concerning the data subject. Furthermore, the data subject is entitled to the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, taking into account the purposes of processing.
Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)
All data subjects affected by the processing of personal data have the right granted by the European policymaker and regulator to request from the controller that the data concerning the data subject is immediately erased, provided that one of the following grounds applies and provided that processing is not necessary:
- The personal data has been collected for such purposes or processed in another way for which it is no longer required.
- The data subject withdraws their consent on which processing was based pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR, or point (b) of Article 9(2) GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for processing.
- The data subject submits an objection to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing, or the data subject submits an objection pursuant to article 21(2) GDPR.
- The personal data have been processed unlawfully.
- The erasure of the personal data is necessary in order to comply with a legal obligation in accordance with Union law, or the law of member states to which the controller is subject.
- The personal data has been collected in respect of services offered by the information society pursuant to Article 8(1) GDPR.
The right to restriction of processing
Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data is granted the right by the European policymaker and regulator to request that the controller restricts processing if one of the following requirements are met: § The accuracy of the personal data is disputed by the data subject – in this instance, the restriction may be of a suitable duration for the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data. § Processing is unlawful, but the data subject refuses the erasure of the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data. § The controller the longer requires the personal data for the purposes of processing; however, the data subject requires it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. § The data subject has submitted an objection to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR, and it has not yet been determined whether the controller’s legitimate interests override those of the data subject.
Right to data portability
Every data subject affected by processing has the right granted by the European policy maker and regulator to receive, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, the personal data concerning them that has been provided to a controller by the data subject.
Right to object
Every data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European policy maker legislator to at any time object, for grounds arising from a particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning them based on points (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. This also applies for profiling based on these provisions. The controller will no longer process the personal data in the event of an objection unless we are able to prove mandatory, legitimate grounds for processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or unless processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. If the controller processes personal data in order to undertake direct marketing, the data subject has the right to at any time object to the processing of personal data for the purposes of marketing of this type. If the data subject objects to processing for the purposes of direct marketing, we will no longer process their personal data for this purpose.
You can submit your objection to the following body:

E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Right to withdraw consent
All data subjects affected by the processing of personal data have the right granted by the European policymaker and regulator to at any time withdraw their consent to the processing of personal data.
We hereby clarify that the provision of some personal data is legally stipulated (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual provisions (such as information regarding a contractual partner). From time to time, it may be necessary, in order to conclude a contract, that a data subject provides us with personal information that subsequently needs to be processed by us. The data subject is for example required to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with the data subject. Not providing the personal data would result in it not being possible to conclude the contract with the data subject.
As a responsible company we do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
The controller responsible for processing collects and processes personal data concerning applicants for the purposes of handling the application procedure. Processing may also take place by electronic means. This is the case in particular if corresponding application documents are transferred by an applicant, via electronic means, to the controller responsible for processing – for example by email or using a web form located on the website. If the controller responsible for processing concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transferred data will be stored for the purposes of executing the employment relationship, subject to the statutory specifications. If the controller responsible for processing does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be erased six months after the refusal decision has been communicated, unless other justified interests held by the controller responsible for processing contradict erasure. Another justified interest in this sense may be for example a duty to provide proof in proceedings in accordance with the General Act on Equal Treatment (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz, AGG).

The controller responsible for processing has integrated components from YouTube into this website. YouTube is an internet video portal that enables video publishers to upload video clips free of charge, and allows other users to view, rate and comment on these video clips also free of charge. YouTube permits the publication of all types of videos, meaning that complete film and TV transmissions, music videos, trailers and videos produced by users themselves can all be accessed via this internet portal.
The operator of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Each time one of the individual pages on this website which is operated by the controller responsible for processing, and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated is accessed, the web browser on the IT system operated by the data subject is automatically triggered by the YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube is available at www.youtube.com/yt/about/. In the context of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google are notified about which specific sub-page on our website the data subject visits. If the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube is notified – when the data subject accesses a sub-page that contains a YouTube video – of which specific sub-page on our website the data subject has visited. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and allocated to the respective YouTube account of the data subject. YouTube and Google always receive a notification via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website, if the data subject is simultaneously logged into YouTube at the time of accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether or not the data subject clicks a YouTube video. If the data subject does not wish for information to be transferred to YouTube and Google in this way, the data subject may prevent the transfer by logging out of their YouTube account before accessing our website.
