We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is extremely important to the owner of Schäfer MWN GmbH. Using the Schäfer MWN GmbH website is basically possible without providing any personal data. However, if an affected person wishes to use our company's special services through our website, personal data processing may be required. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally seek the consent of the data subject.
Processing of personal data, such as the name, address, email address or telephone number of a data subject, is always performed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection provisions applicable to Schäfer MWN GmbH. Through this privacy statement, our company seeks to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights under this privacy statement.
As the data processing controller, Schäfer MWN GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, every person concerned is free to submit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.
1. Terminology definitions
The privacy statement by Schäfer MWN GmbH is based on the terms used by the European directive and regulatory body in the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our privacy statement should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terminology used in advance.
We use the following terms in this privacy statement, including but not limited to:
a) Personal data
Personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘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 factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
b) Affected person
Affected person is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller.
‘processing’ means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
‘restriction of processing’ means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
‘profiling’ means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
‘pseudonymisation’ means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
‘controller’ means 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; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
‘processor’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
‘recipient’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. 2However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
j) Third party
‘third party’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
‘consent’ of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

3. Links to other websites and use of social media ‘share function’
Our websites contain links to external websites. We cannot accept responsibility for the privacy policies or the content of these third-party websites. If you find data protection violating data protection rights or otherwise illegal contents on the linked websites, we ask you to notify us at info[at]schaeferrolls.com, so that we can remove the relevant link if necessary.
The Social Media ‘Share’ feature is implemented on our website solely as a link and not as a plug-in. This feature allows you to share content from our website on the social media channels of Facebook, Twitter, Xing and LinkedIn. Any data transmission to the respective social media providers takes place only through the use of the respective button/link.
4. Collection of general data and information
The Schäfer MWN GmbH website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by an affected person or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The data that may be recorded includes (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-web pages, 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 accessing system's internet service provider (ISP); and (8) other similar data and information used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, Schäfer MWN GmbH draws no conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) properly deliver the contents of our website, (2) to optimise the content of our website and to promote it, (3) to ensure the continued functioning of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber-attack. Schäfer MWN GmbH therefore evaluates this anonymously collected data and information statistically and with the goal of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure the best possible level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.
5. Contact via the website
Due to statutory provisions, the website of Schäfer MWN GmbH contains information that enables you to contact our company quickly and to communicate directly with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (email address). If an affected person contacts the person responsible for processing by email or through a contact form, the personal data provided by the data subject will be automatically stored. Such personal data, voluntarily transmitted by an individual to the person responsible for processing, is stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not disclosed to third parties.
6. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
The person responsible for processing processes and stores the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage or as provided for in the law or regulation by the European directive and regulatory body or any other legislator, which the person responsible for processing is subject to.
If the storage purpose does not apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European directive and regulatory body or any other relevant legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
7. Rights of the person concerned
a) Right to confirmation
Each data subject has the right, as granted by the European directive and regulatory body, to require the person responsible for processing to confirm whether personal data relating to him/her is being processed. If an affected person wishes to make use of this right of confirmation, they can contact an employee of the person responsible for processing at any time.
b) Right to information
Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European directive and regulatory body to obtain at any time, free of charge, from the person responsible for processing any personal data held about him or her and a copy of such information. Furthermore, the European directive and regulatory body has provided the data subject with the right to the following information:
• the processing purposes
• the categories of personal data being processed
• the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data has been disclosed or is yet to be disclosed, in particular to recipients in third-party countries or to international organisations
• if possible, the planned duration for which the personal data will be stored or, if that is not possible, the criteria for determining that duration
• the existence of a right to rectification or deletion of their personal data or of a restriction of the processing by the person responsible or of a right to object to such processing
• the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority
• if the personal data is not collected from the data subject: All available information about the origin of the data
• the existence of automated decision-making including profiling in accordance with Article 22 (1) and (4) of the GDPR and (at least in these cases) meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended impact of such processing on the data subject
In addition, the data subject has a right to information as to whether personal data has been transmitted to a third-party country or to an international organisation. If that is the case, then the data subject has the right to obtain information about the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer.
If an affected person wishes to make use of this right to information, they can contact an employee of the person responsible for processing at any time.
c) Right to rectification
Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European directive and regulatory body to demand the immediate correction of inaccurate personal data concerning him/her. Furthermore, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary statement, taking into account the purposes of processing.
If an affected person wishes to make use of this right of rectification, they can contact an employee of the person responsible for processing at any time.
d) Right to deletion (right to be forgotten)
Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European directive and regulatory body to require the responsible person to immediately delete the personal data concerning him/her, provided that one of the following reasons is satisfied and the processing is not required:
• The personal data has been collected for such purposes or otherwise processed for which they are no longer necessary.
• The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR or Article 9 (2) (a) of the GDPR and lacks any other legal basis for the processing.
• The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) of the GDPR and there are no legitimate reasons for the processing or the data subject objects to the processing in accordance with Article 21 (2) of the GDPR.
• The personal data was processed unlawfully.
• The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under European Union law or national law of member states to which the person responsible is subject.
• The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8 (1) of the GDPR.
If one of the above reasons is correct and a data subject wishes to arrange for the deletion of personal data held by Schäfer MWN GmbH, they may, at any time, contact an employee of the person responsible for processing. The employee of Schäfer MWN GmbH will arrange that the deletion request is fulfilled immediately.
If the personal data has been made public by Schäfer MWN GmbH and if our company is responsible for deleting personal data as the person responsible according to Art. 17 (1) of the GDPR, Schäfer MWN GmbH will take appropriate measures, also of a technical nature, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other data controllers processing the published personal data that the data subject has requested that these other data controllers delete all links to such personal data or copies or replications of such personal data, if the processing is not necessary. The employee of Schäfer MWN GmbH will arrange the necessary steps in individual cases.
e) Right to restriction of processing
Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European directive and regulatory body to require the responsible person to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions applies:
• The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period of time that enables the person responsible to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
• The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to delete the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of personal data.
• The responsible party no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject requires them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
• The data subject has objected to the processing in accordance with Article 21 (1) of the GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the responsible party outweigh those of the data subject.
If one of the above conditions applies and a data subject wishes to arrange for the limitation of personal data held by Schäfer MWN GmbH, they may, at any time, contact an employee of the person responsible for processing. The employee of the Schäfer MWN GmbH will immediately initiate the restriction of processing.
f) Right to data portability
Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European directive and regulatory body to obtain the personal data concerning him/her provided to a responsible party by the data subject in a structured, common and machine-readable format. They also have the right to transfer this information to another person without hindrance by the person responsible, to whom the personal data was given, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR or Article 9 (2) (a) of the GDPR or of a contract pursuant to Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR and the processing is carried out using automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task which is in the public interest or in the exercise of public authority delegated to the responsible party.
Furthermore, in exercising their right to data portability under Article 20 (1) of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to effect that the personal data are transmitted directly from one person to another, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.
In order to assert the right of data portability, the data subject may at any time contact an employee of Schäfer MWN GmbH.
g) Right to objection
Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European directive and regulatory body has the right to object at any time, for reasons of their own particular circumstances, to the processing of personal data concerning them pursuant to Article 6 (1) (e) or (f) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on this provision.
Schäfer MWN GmbH does not process the personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing is for the purposes of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
If Schäfer MWN GmbH processes personal data in order to operate direct mail advertising, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct mail. If the data subject objects to Schäfer MWN GmbH processing for direct marketing purposes, Schäfer MWN GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, for reasons arising from his/her particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data relating to him/her, which is carried out by Schäfer MWN GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 (1) of the GDPR, unless such processing is necessary to fulfil a public interest task.
In order to exercise the right of objection, the data subject may directly contact any Schäfer MWN GmbH employee or other employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his right of objection, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling
Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right conferred by the European directive and regulatory body not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing (including profiling), which has a legal effect on it or, in a similar manner, significantly affects it, unless the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is permitted by European Union or Member State legislation to which the responsible party is subject and where such legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) with the express consent of the data subject.
If the decision (1) is required for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the person concerned and the person responsible or (2) it takes place with the express consent of the data subject, Schäfer MWN GmbH shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the responsible party, to express his/her own position and to challenge the decision.
If the data subject wishes to assert its rights regarding automated decision-making, they can contact an employee of the party responsible for processing at any time.
i) Right to revoke a data protection consent
Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European directive and regulatory body to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to assert its rights to revoke a consent, they can contact an employee of the party responsible for processing at any time.
8. Legal basis of processing
Article 6 (I) (a) of the GDPR provides our company with a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a contract of which the data subject is a contracting party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 (I) (b) of the GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Article 6 (I) (c) of the GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may 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 premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In that case, the processing would be based on Article 6 (I) (d) of the GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could also be based on Article 6 (I) (f) of the GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly allowed to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator, which holds the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the responsible party (recital 47, sentence 2, GDPR).
9. Legitimate interests in processing that are being pursued by the responsible party or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 (I) (f) of the GDPR, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders.
10. Duration for which the personal data will be stored
The criterion for the duration of storing personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if it is no longer required to fulfil the contract or to initiate a contract.
11. Statutory 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 clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information about the contracting party). Occasionally, it may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be finalised. Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is legally or contractually required or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what the consequences of the non-provision of the personal data are.
12. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
As of May 2018
