A. General

For better understanding, we did not make a distinction between specific genders. In the sense of equal treatment, corresponding terms apply to all genders. The meaning of terms used, such as “personal data” or “processing” can be found in Art. 4 GDPR.

Personal data that is processed within the framework of this website includes
- Use data (e.g. visited pages of our website) and
- Content data (e.g. entries in online forms).

B. Specific
Data protection notices
We guarantee that we will process your data exclusively in connection with the processing of your requests and for internal purposes and also to provide services requested by you or to provide contents.

Bases of data processing
We always process your personal data in compliance with relevant data protection regula-tions. Legal bases are:
- Provision of our contractual services
- Processing is statutory requirement
- Availability of your electronic consent (e.g., registration for newsletter)
- Assertion of our legitimate interests

We are happy to indicate the location where the above legal bases are regulated:

Processing for the fulfilment of our services and execution of contractual measures
Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR

Processing for the fulfilment of our statutory obligations
Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR

Art. 6(1)(a) and Art. 7 GDPR

Processing for the protection of our legitimate interests
Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR

Data transmission to third parties
No data is transmitted to third parties.

Data transmission to a third country or an international organization
Third countries are those countries where the GDPR is not a directly applicable law. This basi-cally includes all countries outside of the EU and/or the European Economic Area.

No data is transmitted to a third country or an international organization without legal basis.

Storage period of your personal data
We observe the basic principles of data minimization and data avoidance. This means that we only store your data as long as required to fulfil the aforementioned purposes or according to the various retention periods required by legislation. If the respective purpose no longer ex-ists or after expiration of the relevant periods, you data is routinely locked and/or deleted according to the statutory requirements.

For this purpose, we have created an internal company concept to ensure this procedure.

If you contact us via the website, you consent to electronic communication. If you contact us electronically, your personal data will be processed. The information you provide will be stored exclusively for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up ques-tions.

We would like to provide you with the legal basis for that:

• Processing for the fulfilment of our services and execution of contractual measures
Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR

We are advising you that e-mails can be read without authorization and without being noticed or changed on their transmission path. We are further advising you that we use a software to filter undesired e-mails (spam filter). Because of the spam filter, it is possible that e-mails are rejected if they are incorrectly identified as spam due to certain characteristics.

What are your rights?
a) Right to information
You have the right to obtain information on your stored data free of charge. Upon request, we will notify you in writing regarding your personal data we have stored. This also includes the origin, the recipients of your data and the purpose of data processing.

b) Right to correction
You have the right to have your data stored by us corrected in case of inaccuracy. You can hereby demand a restriction of processing, e.g., when disputing the accuracy of your person-al data.

c) Right to blocking
Furthermore, you have the right to have your data blocked. To be able to take blocking your data into account at any time, this data must be retained in a block file for control purposes.

d) Right to erasure
You can demand the erasure of your personal data if no legally required retention periods exist. If such requirement exists, we will block your data upon request. If the relevant statu-tory requirements exist, we will also erase your personal data without your request.

e) Right to data portability
You have the right to demand that we provide the personal data transmitted to us in a format that permits transmission to another place.

f) Right to file a complaint at a supervisory authority
You have the option to address a complaint to one of the data protection supervisory authori-ties.

g) Right of objection
You have the option at any time, for reasons that arise from your specific situation, to object to the processing of your data pursuant to Art. 6(1)(e) and (f); this also applies to profiling on the basis of these provisions.

WITEC AG will then no longer process your personal data unless it can provide compelling legitimate reasons for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If personal data is processed for purposes of direct marketing, you have the right to object to the processing of personal data pertaining to you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling if it is related to such direct marketing. In case of such objection, we will no longer process your personal data for the purposes of direct marketing. In this case, it is sufficient to notify us by e-mail.

h) Right of withdrawal
You have the option at any time to withdraw your consent to processing of your data with future effect without stating any reasons. The withdrawal does not cause any disadvantages for you. In this case, it is sufficient to notify us by e-mail.

However, such withdrawal does not affect the legality of the processing on the legal basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR up to the time of the withdrawal.

To exercise your rights, send an e-mail to us at the following address:


Protection of your personal data
We are taking contractual, technical and organizational security measures according to the state of the art to ensure compliance with data protection laws and to thereby protect the processed data against incidental or intentional manipulations, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons.

The security measures particularly include the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and our server. 128 bit SSL (AES 128) encryption technology is used for this pur-pose.

This protects your personal data as part of the following items (excerpt):
a) Safeguarding the confidentiality of your personal data
To safeguard your data we have stored, we have implemented various measures for entry, admission and access control.

b) Safeguarding the integrity of your personal data
We have implemented various transfer and input control measures to safeguard the integrity of your data we have stored.

c) Safeguarding of the availability of your personal data
We have implemented various order and availability control measures to safeguard the avail-ability of your data we have stored.

The current security measures are continuously improved in line with the technological devel-opment. In spite of these precautions, we cannot guarantee the security of your data trans-mission to our website due to the insecure nature of the Internet. As a result, you are trans-mitting data at your own risk.

Protection of minors
Persons under the age of 16 years old are only permitted to provide personal information to us with the explicit consent of the legal guardians. This data will be processed according to these data protection notices.

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

The basis for data processing is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

Change of our data protection notices
We reserve the right to adjust our data protection notices short-term to ensure that they comply with the current legal requirements at all times or to implement changes of our ser-vices. For example, this may apply to the introduction of new services. The new data protec-tion notices will then apply at your next visit.
