Your order/inquiry

Our colleagues from Sales and Engineering process the personal data which you provide us with for the purposes of handling your purchase order (for goods, printed materials, newsletters, service offers etc.) or inquiries (regarding offers, technical support etc.) while any of those processes are ongoing. Where necessary we make use of service providers for web hosting, shipping and payment transactions.
Legal basis: Art. 6 I b) GDPR.

In addition it is even possible that we may send you a Christmas greeting or something similar ;-)
We adhere to the legal retention periods. But then we also manufacture long-lived products. To ensure that we can likewise provide long-term service, we may retain the contact data for product owners beyond our legal retention obligations. If you object to this, simply contact our data protection deputy.

When we contact you

If we contact you beyond the processes described here, we either have your consent to the associated data processing of your contact data (Art. 6 I a) GDPR), which you may revoke at any time to the above mentioned mail or e-mail address, or we have a legitimate interest (Art. 6 I f) GDPR). This applies especially to suppliers and the areas of marketing/direct advertising, PR, press relations and network activities. The purposes of the data processing arise from the contact. Provided we have not notified you differently when making contact or you are not otherwise aware, we use here the data you have yourself made public. We shall delete your personal data if it is no longer needed by us in the context described and there are no contravening legal retention obligations.

Visiting our website


When you visit our website we set a "session cookie." This is an ID which is stored in your browser until it is closed. This ID is stored on the server of our Web host in a session file which for example identifies the goods placed in the shopping cart. This ID is linked to personal data only if you provide us with this data during an ordering activity using the form fields provided. After a short time of inactivity the server-side session file is marked as invalid and is then deleted.
We have decided to use a session cookie so that the visit to our website and especially the ordering process is more convenient for you and the associated usability advantage outweighs the time-limited linking of the personal data you provided with a session ID.
Legal basis: Art. 6 I f) GDPR.


Especially after advertising campaigns our marketing team members check the success of our website (visitor numbers etc.) as well as the compatibility of our website with the accessing browser versions using the open source analytics tool Matomo. In setting up Matomo we configured the recommended data protection settings, including the retention duration; this means for example that your IP address is anonymized before it is saved. If your browser supports the "Do not track" function and you have enabled it in your browser settings, Matomo does not collect any data. You can also object to web tracking and set an opt-out cookie:

*The data which Matomo makes available to us on the server of or web host is never associated with actually personal data from ordering activities. Because of the anonymizing of your IP address, we even doubt that personal data are even present here, since we have no ability to track or identify. Aside from this we would have no benefit or even interest in this, so that in the worst case there might be a theoretical, slight concern for personal rights. Rather, our main interest lies in being able to provide you with a website which is the best it can be in terms of content and technology.
Legal basis: Art. 6 I f) GDPR.

Your application

As part of the application process our training manager processes those personal data which you share with us within our application portal for secondary and university students and which are stored with our web hoster. For other recruiting processes our corresponding employees from the relevant departments process those personal data which you provide to us with your application.
Legal basis: Art. 6 I b) GDPR.

If your application is unsuccessful, we delete/destroy your data within an appropriate time after the respective application procedure has been closed out.

Your rights

Please direct any questions or requests for information, rectification, deletion, restriction of processing, receiving of the data as well as your objection to processing (Art. 15 - 21 GDPR) also to s.glasmacherno@wutweb.topde or to our above listed postal address using the reference "Data Protection".

Your right to lodge a complaint (Art. 77 GDPR) can be exercised with the representative for Data Protection and Freedom of Information of North Rhine-Westphalia, www.ldi.nrw.de
