Data protection declaration

1. General information
Die ELKA-Torantriebe GmbH u. Co. Betriebs KG, Dithmarscher Str. 9, 25832 Tönning/Germany is responsible for data processing on this website within the meaning of the European Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO). We respect your personal rights. We understand the importance of personal information we receive from you as a user of our website. We respect the protection of your personal data and will collect, store or process all data obtained exclusively in accordance with the relevant data protection regulations within the scope of our business purpose.

2. Definitions
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. Identifiable is a natural person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by 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 that natural person. SSL or TLS encryption: This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as a site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

3. The legal basis of the processing
If we obtain your consent for the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 a of the European Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO) serves as the legal basis. The processing of personal data required for the fulfilment of a contract with you is based on Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter b DSGVO. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, this is done within the scope of Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO. If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of us or a third party and your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh the legitimate interest, Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interest of our company is usually in the conduct of our business.

4. Data deletion and storage time
Your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as it is no longer needed to carry out the purpose for which they were recorded or the purpose itself is no longer persued. Storage may also take place if provided for by European or national legislators in EU regulations, laws or regulations. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion of a contract or fulfillment of the contract.
