Thank you for your interest in our company.
Data protection is of a particularly high priority for PTM mechatronics GmbH.
It is generally possible to use the PTM mechatronics GmbH website without providing any personal data. However, if a Person wishes to make use of our company’s special services via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, email address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to PTM mechatronics GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, the person in question will be informed about his/her rights by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller, PTM mechatronics GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.
The data protection declaration of PTM mechatronics GmbH is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terminology used in advance.
We use the following terms in this data protection declaration:
a) Personal data
Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “person concerned”). A natural person is regarded as identifiable who, directly or indirectly, in particular by means of assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special features that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person can be identified.
b) Data subject or person in question
The person concerned is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the person responsible for processing.
Processing is any process carried out with or without the help of automated processes or any such series of processes in connection with personal data such as the collection, recording, organization, ordering, storage, adaptation or change, reading, querying, use, disclosure through transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using this personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular aspects relating to work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior and analyze the whereabouts or relocation of this natural person.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in a way in which the personal data can no longer be assigned to the specific person concerned without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures that ensure that the personal data cannot be assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Responsible person or person responsible for processing
The person responsible or the person responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data. If the purposes and means of this processing are specified by Union law or the law of the member states, the person responsible or the specific criteria for his appointment can be provided for in accordance with Union law or the law of the member states.
The processor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the person responsible.
The Recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to which personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not.
However, authorities that may receive personal data as part of a specific investigation under Union law or the law of the member states are not considered as recipients.
j) Third party
A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the person responsible or the processor. And the persons who are authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the person responsible or the processor.

4. Collection of general data and information
The PTM mechatronics GmbH website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the server’s log files. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, PTM mechatronics GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the content of our website, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack.

The anonymous data in the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by the person concerned.
5. Contact option via the PTM website
Due to legal regulations, the website of PTM mechatronics GmbH contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address).
If the person concerned contacts the person responsible for processing by email or a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned will be automatically saved. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by the person concerned to the person responsible for processing are stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the person concerned. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.
6. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
The person responsible for the processing, processes and stores personal data of the person concerned only for the period of time that is necessary to achieve the storage purpose or if this is specified by the European directives and regulations or another legislator in laws or regulations, which the person responsible for the processing is subject to, was provided.
If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European directives and regulations or another responsible legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
7. Legal basis for processing
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract to which the person concerned is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are required to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, for example to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, it may be necessary to process personal data in order to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR.
Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedom of the person concerned do not prevail. We are particularly permitted to carry out such processing operations because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator.
In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
8. Legitimate interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit.f GDPR, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business activities for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.
9. Duration for which the personal data are stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the period has expired, the relevant data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for contract fulfillment or contract initiation.
10. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data;
Necessity for the conclusion of the contract;
Obligation of the person concerned to provide the personal data;
possible consequences of non-provision
We inform you, that the provision of personal data is in part required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In order to conclude a contract, it may sometimes be necessary for a person concerned to provide us with personal data that we subsequently have to process.
For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data when our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the person concerned. Before the person concerned provides personal data, the person concerned must contact our data protection officer.
Our data protection officer informs the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the failure to provide the personal data would have.
11. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
