Privacy Policy

Personal data (usually referred to just as "data" below) will only be processed by us to the extent necessary and
for the purpose of providing a functional and user-friendly website, including its contents, and the services
offered there.

Per Art. 4 No. 1 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, i.e. the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred
to as the "GDPR"), "processing" refers to any operation or set of operations such as collection, recording,
organization, structuring, storage, adaptation, alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by
transmission, dissemination, or otherwise making available, alignment, or combination, restriction, erasure, or
destruction performed on personal data, whether by automated means or not.

The following privacy policy is intended to inform you in particular about the type, scope, purpose, duration,
and legal basis for the processing of such data either under our own control or in conjunction with others.
We also inform you below about the third-party components we use to optimize our website and improve the
user experience which may result in said third parties also processing data they collect and control.

Our privacy policy is structured as follows:

I. Information about us as controllers of your data
II. The rights of users and data subjects
III. Information about the data processing

I. Information about us as controllers of your data
The party responsible for this website (the "controller") for purposes of data protection law is:

Härtwig Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG
Schönberger Str. 5a
02733 Cunewalde

Telephone: +49 35877 8960-0
Fax: +49 35877 8960-292

The controller's data protection officer is: Alexander Pogede

II. The rights of users and data subjects
With regard to the data processing to be described in more detail below, users and data subjects have the right
to confirmation of whether data concerning them is being processed, information about the data being
processed, further information about the nature of the data processing, and copies of the data (cf. also Art. 15
GDPR); to correct or complete incorrect or incomplete data (cf. also Art. 16 GDPR); to the immediate deletion
of data concerning them (cf. also Art. 17 DSGVO), or, alternatively, if further processing is necessary as
stipulated in Art. 17 Para. 3 GDPR, to restrict said processing per Art. 18 GDPR; to receive copies of the data
concerning them and/or provided by them and to have the same transmitted to other providers/controllers
(cf. also Art. 20 GDPR); to file complaints with the supervisory authority if they believe that data concerning
them is being processed by the controller in breach of data protection provisions (see also Art. 77 GDPR).
In addition, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom it discloses data of any such corrections,
deletions, or restrictions placed on processing the same per Art. 16, 17 Para. 1, 18 GDPR. However, this
obligation does not apply if such notification is impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. Nevertheless,
users have a right to information about these recipients.

Likewise, under Art. 21 GDPR, users and data subjects have the right to object to the controller's future
processing of their data pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. In particular, an objection to data processing
for the purpose of direct advertising is permissible.

III. Information about the data processing
Your data processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for its
storage ceases to apply, provided the deletion of the same is not in breach of any statutory storage
obligations or unless otherwise stipulated below.

Server data
For technical reasons, the following data sent by your internet browser to us or to our server provider will
be collected, especially to ensure a secure and stable website: These server log files record the type and
version of your browser, operating system, the website from which you came (referrer URL), the webpages
on our site visited, the date and time of your visit, as well as the IP address from which you visited our site.
The data thus collected will be temporarily stored, but not in association with any other of your data.
The basis for this storage is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement,
stability, functionality, and security of our website. The data will be deleted within no more than seven days,
unless continued storage is required for evidentiary purposes. In which case, all or part of the data will be
excluded from deletion until the investigation of the relevant incident is finally resolved.

a) Session cookies
We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies stored on your
computer by your browser. These cookies process certain specific information about you, such as your
browser, location data, or IP address. This processing makes our website more user-friendly, efficient,
and secure, allowing us, for example, to display our website in different languages or to offer a shopping
cart function. The legal basis for such processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, insofar as these cookies
are used to collect data to initiate or process contractual relationships. If the processing does not serve to
initiate or process a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website.
The legal basis is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. When you close your browser, these session cookies
are deleted.

b) Third-party cookies
If necessary, our website may also use cookies from companies with whom we cooperate for the purpose
of advertising, analyzing, or improving the features of our website. Please refer to the following information
for details, in particular for the legal basis and purpose of such third-party collection and processing of data
collected through cookies.

c) Disabling cookies
You can refuse the use of cookies by changing the settings on your browser. Likewise, you can use the
browser to delete cookies that have already been stored. However, the steps and measures required vary,
depending on the browser you use. If you have any questions, please use the help function or consult the
documentation for your browser or contact its maker for support. Browser settings cannot prevent
so-called flash cookies from being set. Instead, you will need to change the setting of your Flash player.
The steps and measures required for this also depend on the Flash player you are using. If you have any
questions, please use the help function or consult the documentation for your Flash player or contact its
maker for support. If you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, not all of the functions on our site
may be fully usable.

If you contact us via email or the contact form, the data you provide will be used for the purpose of processing your request. We must have this data in order to process and answer your inquiry; otherwise we will not be able to answer it in full or at all.
The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
Your data will be deleted once we have fully answered your inquiry and there is no further legal obligation to store your data, such as if an order or contract resulted therefrom.
Online job applications / publication of job advertisements
We offer you the opportunity to apply for jobs with our company via our website. In the case of these digital applications, we collect your application data electronically in order to process your application.
The legal basis for this processing is §26 Para. 1 S. 1 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 Para. 1 GDPR.
If you are hired as a result of the application process, we will store the data you provide during the application process in your personnel file for the purpose of the usual organizational and administrative process, naturally in compliance with further legal obligations.
The legal basis for this processing is §26 Para. 1 S. 1 BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88 Para. 1 GDPR.
If we do not hire you, we will automatically delete the data submitted to us two months after the final decision is made. We will not delete the data, however, if we must store the data for legal reasons such as evidence of equal treatment of applicants, until any legal action is concluded, or four months.
In this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR and §24 Para. 1 No. 2 BDSG. Our legitimate interest lies in any legal defense we may have to mount .
If you expressly consent to a longer storage of your data, e.g. for your inclusion in a database of applicants or interested parties, the data will be processed further on the basis of your consent. The legal basis is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR. You may withdraw your consent at any time with future effect per Art. 7 Para. 3 GDPR with future effect.
