Data protection declaration
We are pleased to register your interest in our company and products and would be most happy for you to feel confident using our website about our use of your personal data. We take your personal information very seriously, and it is clear that we always observe the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (FDPA).
All digital data processes (access, processing and use) by Sauerländer Spanplatten GmbH & Co. KG take place under strict observation of legal data protection legislation. We access, process and use personal data in fulfilment of orders/instructions and in the on-going improvement of our services.
Global data protection standards
Our use of personal data is based on global principles and standards relating to transparent use of personal data, respect for and provision of rights, access regulations, regulations on data integrity, data security, data transfer and monitoring of correct processing.
Personal data and their application
In the following cases we need personal data:
• For orders
• When carrying out instructions
• For establishing contact (employees, applicants, interested parties, clients, suppliers)
Security of data
For protection of our customers’ personal data we process the data only using computers and servers protected by security technology up to the industry standard such as firewalls, password protection and access control. We keep personal data only long enough to carry out the purposes for which they were collected or to satisfy legal requirements on reporting and conservation of documents.
All company employees have committed to data secrecy. Our servers and in-house IT department are continually adapting technical security precautions to current circumstances and requirements. Our data protection officer carries out on-going control.
Disclosure of personal data
We operate at an international level, so Sauerländer Spanplatten GmbH & Co. KG also has a global internet presence. We process your data within Sauerländer Spanplatten GmbH & Co. KG with the aim of addressing your queries and orders more efficiently and bringing on-going improvement to our services and products.
If necessary, information may also be passed on from Sauerländer Spanplatten GmbH & Co. KG to business partners, service providers, third parties and sub-contractors. This may be required to procure for you a service you require such as order handling, for customer service purposes and to inform you about our services and products.
When passing personal data on to third parties, we limit ourselves to information required to fulfil the services in question.
Your personal data are never passed on for marketing purposes, nor are they sold or otherwise communicated to third parties without your prior approval.
Sauerländer Spanplatten GmbH & Co. KG may be compelled to disclose your data and ancillary information in response to official or court order. We still reserve the right to use your data for enforcement or defence against legal claims.
Data access and corrections
You have the right to information on your stored data free of charge, and perhaps even to correction, blocking or deletion of these data. An exception here is formed by data whose correction, blocking or deletion is excluded due to legal and contractual retention periods or as specified in the articles of association and data needed for substantiation, re-structuring or change to your contractual relationship with us and data that must be stored for accounting purposes.
Right of Withdrawal
The person concerned has the right to withdraw his consent to data processing at any time, without affecting the legality of the processing up to the time of withdrawal.
Right of Appeal
The person concerned has the right to complain to the supervisory authority.
