In addition, there may be an interest in passing on this data for internal, administrative purposes.

DSGVO.
Transfer to third parties
We transfer your data to certain third parties to be able to provide corresponding applications and services (so-called “order processors”), who provide external services for us. For example, newsletter services, IT providers, tax offices, etc. A transfer to other third parties may take place to fulfil our obligations (authorities, banks, social security institutions, etc.). Third parties process the data only in accordance with our instructions and are prohibited from using this data for their own commercial purposes that do not correspond to the agreed purposes.
We must disclose personal data if we are obliged to do so as part of ongoing legal proceedings, based on an injunction, by law or under applicable law (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO).
We only disclose your personal data to third parties if:
you have given your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1 lit. a DSGVO,
the disclosure is necessary for the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data,
if there is a legal obligation for disclosure in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO, as well as
this is legally permissible and necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

Transmission to a third country or international organization
There is no transfer to a third country or an international organization.
Existence of automated decision-making including profiling
As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
Duration of storage
We generally store your data for as long as is necessary for the provision of our online offer and the associated services or if this has been provided for by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject. In all other cases, we delete your personal data after the purpose has been fulfilled, except for data that we must continue to store to comply with legal obligations (e.g., we are obliged to retain documents such as contracts and invoices for a certain period of time due to retention periods under tax and commercial law).
ABC Umformtechnik GmbH & Co. KG uses technical and organizational security measures to protect the data we have under our control against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g., communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Legal basis of processing
Article 6 I lit. a DSGVO serves as the legal basis for our company 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 to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary 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 the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DSGVO.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data might 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 were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DSGVO.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DSGVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our customers.
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 not providing the data.
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g., tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g., information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will explain 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 the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
Notice for minors
This online offer is not directed at children under the age of 16. Persons who have not yet reached the age of 16 may not transmit any personal data to ABC Umformtechnik GmbH & Co. KG without the consent of a parent or guardian.

in accordance with Art. 18 DSGVO, to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you object to its erasure and we no longer require the data, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or you have objected to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO;
in accordance with Art. 20 DSGVO, to receive your personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, common, and machine-readable format or to request that it be transferred to another controller (data portability);
insofar as your personal data are processed based on legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 S.1 lit. f DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO, insofar as there are grounds for doing so that arise from your situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which is implemented by us without specifying a particular situation;
complain to a supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77 DSGVO. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or workplace for this purpose.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Some data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You have the possibility to revoke an already given consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail to email@example.com. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
