We are very pleased about your interest in our online shop. Data protection has a high priority at the MEBA Metall-Bandsägemaschinen GmbH. The use of the MEBA Metall-Bandsägemaschinen GmbH online shop is possible without any indication of personal data; However, if a data subject wishes to make use of orders or inquiries to our company via our online shop, processing of personal data will be necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally ask for the consent of the concerned subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject are always in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the MEBA Metall-Bandsägemaschinen GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed about the rights to which they are entitled by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller, the MEBA Metall-Bandsägemaschinen GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, an absolute protection can therefore not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
a) Personal Data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more special features that express the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
b) Data Subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing describes any operation or set of operations performed on personal data, with or without the aid of automated procedures, such as collection, recording, organisation, ordering, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or availability, alignment or combination, restriction, deletion or destruction.
d) Restriction of Processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data consisting in the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movement of that natural person.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in a way after which the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information. This additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data is not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller responsible for the processing
Controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.

9. Collection of general data and information
The website of the MEBA Metall-Bandsägemaschinen GmbH collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system visits the website. This general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The collected data are (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the MEBA Metall-Bandsägemaschinen GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the content of our website, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, the MEBA Metall-Bandsägemaschinen GmbH evaluates anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process.

13. Data protection provisions about the use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
On this website, the controller has integrated Google Analytics (with anonymization function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis describes the collection and evaluation of data about the visitors’ behaviour on websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data about the deriving website of the data subject (so-called referrals) Data gathered includes: which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our Internet pages is from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of Google Analytics is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.
By means of the cookie, personal information, such as the access time, the place from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject, are stored. Each time you visit our website, this 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 pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies of our website, as already described above, at any time by altering the setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently objecting to the setting of cookies. This would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google can be retrieved under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.
14. YouTube data protection previsions
On this website, the controller has integrated components of YouTube. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips for free. User can download and comment these videos. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programs, as well as music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.
Operating company of YouTube is the YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. Die YouTube, LLC ist einer Tochtergesellschaft der Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
With each visit of one of the website’s pages, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the component from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google receive information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged into YouTube, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.
YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component if the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such a transmission of information to YouTube and Google is not desired by the data subject, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her YouTube account before visiting our website.
The data protection provisions published by YouTube can be accessed under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/. They provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.
15. Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we ask consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit.b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit.c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor was injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would then have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations since they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. A legitimate interest is assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
16. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.
17. Duration for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
18. Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; Possible consequences of non-provision
We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes for a contract to be concluded it may be necessary that a data subject provides us with personal data, which have to be subsequently processed by us. The data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data results in the failure of concluding the contract. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the non-provision of the personal data has.
19. Automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
As of June 2020
