Detailed description of our data protection

The topic of data protection is ever-present at SWG Schraubenwerk Gaisbach GmbH. Data protection protects the people behind the data stored or processed in the company. The task of data protection and also the primary goal of SWG Schraubenwerk Gaisbach GmbH is to design the handling of personal data in such a way that nobody's personal rights are impaired.

The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the new Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) impose a whole series of obligations on the bodies responsible for processing personal data.

Personal data may only be collected and processed if expressly permitted by the GDPR. The main principles of the GDPR are:

•    Legality of processing, fair processing, transparency
•    Purpose
•    Data minimisation
•    Correctness of data processing
•    Storage limitation and deletion plans
•    Integrity and confidentiality

Responsible handling of personal data and also the risk-conscious use of IT systems and applications are further central objectives of SWG Schraubenwerk Gaisbach GmbH.

If you use this website, various pieces of personal data will be collected. Personal information is any data with which you could be personally identified. This privacy policy explains what information we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this happens.

Please note that data transmitted via the internet (e.g. via email communication) may be subject to security breaches. It is not possible to fully protect data from third-party access.

Legal basis

The processing of personal data is only legal if a law permits it, i.e. if a legal basis exists. However, the GDPR and the BDSG define further possibilities. Personal data will only be processed within our company in accordance with statutory provisions. These are, among others,

if there is consent to the processing of personal data (Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR),

or

if personal data must be processed in order to fulfil a contract or to initiate a contract (Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR),

or

if we are subject to the responsibility to process personal data to fulfil a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 (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 (f) GDPR).

When weighing up the interests of those affected and the parties to the contract, a strict standard is always applied in favour of the data subject.

Potential recipients for data transmission

The potential recipients of personal data transmitted are

•    public authorities, insofar as there is a statutory obligation,
•    service providers and other business partners, insofar as this is necessary for the fulfilment of the
respective purpose and a legal provision permits or requires this, or the data subject has consented.

Planned data transfer to third countries

If the intention is to transfer personal data to a third country or an international organisation, the data will be transferred on the basis of a decision on appropriateness. Should data nevertheless be transmitted, we point out that suitable guarantees or binding internal data protection regulations exist or that a strict standard is always applied in favour of the data subject when weighing up the interests of the data subjects and the contracting parties.
