1. Which personal data about you do we collect?
Personal data covers all information about a specific or specifiable natural person which you notify to us or which is generated or collected by us. On our website, this includes in particular:
Enquiry data: We provide different options for enquiries on our website, where you can opt to seek to get in contact with us, and, when using our form, will provide data entered by you or collected about you in this context. In particular, this may include:
2. What do we use your personal data for, on what legal basis and for how long?
2.1 Your enquiries
Should you submit enquiries to us via a contact form or per email, we process the information given therein to answer your query as well as the IP address and date/time of the request in order to avoid misuse of the contact form.
The legal basis for the processing is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) letter f GDPR in providing you with the respective service you requested (e.g. request for contact). If your query concerns the initiation or processing (including customer service or warranty) of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) letter b GDPR.
You may oppose the processing of your data on grounds of Art. 6 (1) letter f GDPR. In this case, upon proving mandatory reasons for the processing we can continue the processing. This can, in such case, be particularly necessary in order to prove past queries and communications with you. If no such mandatory reasons exist, we will cease our communication with you and delete already collected data.
This data will be deleted when our communication with you or the respective relationship established by your enquiry has ended, i.e. when the factual situation at issue has been conclusively clarified and no further legitimate interest exists for the storage, respectively no further statutory obligations exist to store such data.
2.2 Job applications
With respect to personal data collected for applications via our Career portal, please see the separate data protection notice there.
2.3 Advertising and product development (user data, newsletters, etc.), right to object
We also wish to use the data entered by you in any event or collected during your use of the websites to inform you about products and services relating to our product range (¨Services¨) (advertising) or to improve our product offers and services (product development).
2.3.1 Anonymised usage data
We use the anonymised and/or aggregated data to be able to understand the surfing behaviour of all visitors and therewith improve the design of our website and of our product range in general.
2.3.2 Personalised and pseudonymised usage data
Moreover, we use your usage data to understand your surfing behaviour and thereby improve the offers displayed to you and to offer personalised information.
2.3.3 Direct marketing On our website, you may subscribe to our newsletter, which is free of charge. The data collected upon subscription will be processed (the data provided in the mandatory fields are indispensable for receipt of the newsletter, data in the voluntary fields only serve the purpose of a more personalised contact and selection of the displayed information).
We will contact you by email with information, offers and promotional offers regarding Services that are personally tailored to you and your interests and use, either on the basis of your express consent, or if you have previously acquired similar products or services and in this context have provided your email address also without separate consent. In this context, we will also process data on your user conduct after we have sent you emails (e.g. click behaviour).
By telephone, we will only contact you with your respective express consent with information, offers and promotional offers regarding Services that are personally tailored to you and your interests and use.
Also without consent, we may inform you where appropriate within the legally permissible scope by written mail advertising of Services.
You may at any time wholly or partially object to the creation of pseudonymised data, the use of your personal data for advertising and product-development purposes as well as the ensuing contact for such purposes in a specific form or may revoke any consents you may have granted. Please use the corresponding functions that are already provided for your use (e.g. the unsubscribe function in your personal customer account) or address a corresponding written notification (reference: data protection) or email to the contact details given in clause 8.
The legal basis for the processing is your consent (Art. 6 (1) letter a GDPR) and our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) letter f GDPR, where applicable in connection with Sec. 7 para. 3 German Unfair Competition Act (UWG).
This data will be deleted by us following your objection, respectively revocation of any consents given, or otherwise upon the end of your use at the latest, respectively it will only be stored in aggregated, anonymised form. To the extent necessary, we will store the fact that you have objected in order to prevent you being contacted further.
2.4 Provision of the website and rendering of services
The processing of the server log data is necessary for technical reasons in order to provide the website and render the services and thereafter to ensure the system security.
The legal basis for the processing is our legitimate interest in providing the website with our services (Art. 6 (1) letter f GDPR). The processing is a mandatory prerequisite for the use of our website; no objection right is hence available.
This data is deleted after 14 days at the latest.
The server log data may then be assessed in anonymised form for statistical purposes and to improve the quality of our internet presence. There is no link between the server log data and your personal data nor is the server log data combined in any way with other personal data sources.
3. Transfer of the data
3.1 Transfer of data to data processors

3.2 Data transfer to third parties
We partially also transmit your data to third parties, i.e. partners with whom we collaborate outside of a contracted processing. Such partners render their services on their own responsibility; the processing of your data by our partners is exclusively governed by the data protection notices of such third party.
3.2.1 Data transfers to other group entities of SMS group GmbH
We may forward your enquiry together with the data specified by you to other responsible SMS group subsidiaries in Germany or other countries whenever this may be required to answer your enquiry (e.g. because your enquiry refers to a business transaction or quotation from another country). The legal basis for the transfer is the performance of a service requested by you, Art. 6 (1), letter b GDPR, and/or our legitimate interest to answer your enquiry, Art. 6 (1), letter f GDPR.
Please note that this may, depending on your enquiry, involve a transfer or your personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area that do not necessarily provide the same level of data protection. We have ensured an adequate level of protection by signing the EU model clauses (Art. 46 (2) GDPR), and you may get a copy of the relevant parts from the contact person named in clause 8.
3.2.2 Logistic enterprises
In order to transport any materials, etc., that you may have ordered, we transmit your address and contact details, to the extent necessary, to parcel transportation enterprises. The legal basis for the transfer is the performance of the contract with you, Art. 6 (1) letter b GDPR.
3.2.3 Social networks To the extent you want to share one of our websites in a social network (e.g. Facebook or Twitter) and for this purpose click one of the ¨share¨ buttons, the respective information will be transferred to the social network. Of course, you have to be logged into the respective social network. The legal basis for the transfer is our legitimate interest to provide you with the opportunity to ¨share¨, Art. 6 (1) letter f GDPR.

4.2 What Cookies do we use on what legal basis and for how long?
On this website we use only one type of Cookies: Cookies required for technical purposes, without which the functionality of our website would be reduced.
