Privacy Policy for the Eichsfelder Schraubenwerk GmbH
Data protection is of the utmost priority at Eichsfelder Schraubenwerk GmbH. Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to inform you of how we implement the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG (2018)) and the Telemedia Act at the Eichsfelder Schraubenwerk GmbH and what information we collect during your visit to our website as well as how we use it.

We take the protection of your data very seriously. We handle your personal data confidentially and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. Please bear in mind that transmitting data over the Internet can be subject to security risks. Complete protection against access by third parties is not possible.

Your data will only be used for the following purposes and not for any other purpose, e.g. for advertising purposes, without your consent.

Data collection
General information is collected automatically (i.e. not via registration) when you visit our website. This is not used in a personally-identifiable manner. By default, our web servers save the following information:

  • The website from which you are visiting us
  • Time of day at the time of access
  • The amount of data sent in bytes
  • Source or reference from which you accessed our site
  • Your browser
  • Your operating system
  • Your IP address

This information is analysed anonymously. This information is used exclusively to improve the appeal, content and functionality of our website. In cases where data is passed on to external service providers, we have implemented technical and organisational measures to ensure that the regulations of the GDPR and the BDSG 2018 are observed.

Collection and processing of personal data
Personal data is only collected if this is permitted by law and if you voluntarily provide it to us, e.g. by registering, filling out forms or sending e-mails, ordering products or services, inquiries or requesting materials.

Personal information comprises any information that is used to identify you and which can be traced back to you, such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

Handling contact data
If you contact us through the available contact options, your enquiries will be stored so that they can be used to process and answer your enquiry.

The data and its contents remain with our company and our provider. Your personal data will not be made available to third parties in any form by us or persons commissioned by us. We will only use personal data provided by you to fulfil our contractual obligations to you and for other purposes if you have consented to the relevant use. You can withdraw your consent to the use of your personal data at any time by sending an e-mail to the e-mail address stated in the imprint or to the data protection officer (see contact details below) with effect for the future.

Storage of data
We store personal data for as long as necessary in order to provide a service that you have requested or for which you have given your consent, unless otherwise required by law, such as retention periods under commercial and tax law.

Eichsfelder Schraubenwerk GmbH implements technical and organisational security measures in order to protect the data made available to us by you from accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, deletion or access by unauthorised individuals. When personal data is collected, it will be transferred in encrypted form in order to prevent misuse of data by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological advances.

Right of access and right to rectification
You have the right to access all your personal data stored with us, to review this data and, if necessary, to have such data corrected or erased. All you need to do is send an e-mail to the e-mail address given in the imprint or to the person responsible for data protection (see contact details below). Your data cannot be erased if we are legally obliged to store your personal data.

Use of Google Analytics
Our homepage uses the "Google Analytics" service, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), for analysis of website usage by users. The service uses "cookies" - text files which are stored on your device. As a rule, the information collected by these cookies will be forwarded to a Google server in the United States and stored there.

IP anonymisation is used on this website. The IP addresses of users within the Member States of the EU and the European Economic Area are shortened. Shortening in this manner eliminates personal association with your IP address. As part of the contract data agreement concluded between the website operators and Google Inc., Google uses the information collected to evaluate the use of the website and website activity and to provide services related to Internet use.

You have the option of preventing the storage of cookies on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without limitation if your browser does not accept cookies.

Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link will direct you to the plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Alternatively, you may use this link to prevent Google Analytics from collecting data about you from this website. By clicking on the link above you can download an "Opt-Out-Cookie". Accordingly, your browser must allow cookies to be stored for this purpose. If you delete your cookies regularly, you will need to click on the link again each time you visit this website. If the link does not work, please refer to the relevant information from Google, which is provided directly on the Google website.
