This also applies to a profiling, if it takes place in connection with direct advertising activities.

As soon as you object to the use of your personal data for the purpose of direct advertising, we will no longer do so. Your objection is free-of-charge and can be done entirely at your discretion, preferably addressed to: marketingroslercom.

In case we are handling your data for safeguarding legitimate interests, you can object to this data handling for reasons associated with your personal situation at any time; this applies also to profiling based on these interests. We will no longer use your personal data unless we can state compelling reasons, which will overrule your interests, rights and freedoms or, if the use of your data serves to enforce or defend legal claims by our company.

Purposes and legal bases of data processing
Your personal data is processed in full compliance with the requirements of the EU-GDPR and all other applicable regulations pertaining to data protection. Especially Art. 6 EU-GDPR is the legal basis for the handling of data.

We are using your data for initiating business relations, for fulfilling contractual and legal obligations, for executing contractual relationships, for offering products and services and for deepening our customer relations. The latter can also include studies for marketing purposes and direct advertising. Your consent automatically includes our obligation for handling your data in line with data protection regulations. In this connection we inform you about the purpose of using your data and your right to object. If your consent also includes the use of particular categories of your personal data, we will specifically point this out upon your consent.

The use of particular categories of personal data as described in Art. 9, para. 1 EU-GDPR only takes place if and when this is required for legal reasons and if there is no reason to assume that the protection of your data outweighs their use.

Passing of data to third parties
We will only pass your data to third parties in compliance with legal regulations or with your express consent. Otherwise no transfer to third parties takes place, unless we are obligated to do so because of binding legal requirements (providing of data to external authorities like, for example, supervisory offices or for criminal investigations).

Data recipients / recipient categories
Within our company we ensure that only those people who require your personal data for the fulfillment of contractual or legal obligations receive them. Frequently, service providers support our employees in their work. We have concluded the required data protection contracts with all our service providers. For the administration of our website one external service provider has temporary access to personal data from the respective contact forms.

Transfer of data to countries outside the EU / intent to transfer data to such countries
Data transmission in third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Zone) takes place only if it is required for the execution of contractual obligation and for handling of queries, if it is legally prescribed or if you have granted us your consent for it. We transmit your personal data to a service provider or to Group companies outside the European Economic Zone: USA, Switzerland, Russia, Serbia, Brazil, China, India. Beyond that, we have worldwide representatives to whom personal data is also transmitted where appropriate. The compliance with data protection regulations is ensured through our corporate privacy rules and EU standard contractual clauses.

Duration of data storage
We keep your data as long as they are required for a specific purpose. Please keep in mind that numerous data storage regulations stipulate the storage of data beyond their specific purpose. This applies mainly to data storage periods prescribed by commercial and tax laws (for example, the German commercial code, tax regulations, etc.). After they have fulfilled their purpose and no other data storage requirements exist anymore, the data is routinely deleted.

Please take into consideration that we can keep data, for which we have received your consent or, for legal disputes for which we use the data as evidence within the scope of legal statutes of limitation, which can have a duration of 30 yeas; the normal statute of limitation expires after three years.

In addition, we also carry out success evaluations and customer satisfaction surveys after projects have been completed and at regular intervals.

If you are a member of a social network and do not want the network to collect data about you via our presence and link it to your stored membership data with the respective network, you must

  • log out of the respective network before visiting our fan page,
  • delete the cookies stored on your device and
  • close and restart your browser.

After logging in again, however, you will again be recognizable to the network as a specific user.
For a detailed description of the respective processing and the opt-out options, please refer to the information linked below:

Altogether, you have the following rights regarding the processing of your personal data:

Right to information; right to rectification; right to erasure; right to restriction of processing; right to object; right to data portability; right to complain about unlawful processing of your personal data to the competent data protection authority.

However, since Rösler Oberflächentechnik GmbH does not have complete access to your personal data, you should contact the providers of the social media directly when asserting your rights, as they each have access to the personal data of their users and can take appropriate measures and provide information.
