Data protection declaration

This data protection declaration is intended to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the processing of personal data within our online offer, including the associated websites, functions and contents as well as external websites such as social media.

Nabtesco Precision Europe GmbH takes data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with legal regulations.

Definitions of the terms used (e.g. "personal data", "processing" or "data controller") can be found in Article 4 of the GDPR (Basic Data Protection Ordinance).

We must (and want to) comply with our information obligations under the GDPR, of course, which is exactly why we have the data protection declarations, because in the end nobody wants to be surprised unexpectedly.

quick notes

If you don't have time, and who has the time to read everything in detail, then there are the following quick notes (details will follow below):

If you visit this website as an unregistered user, little spectacular happens. The web server will process your IP address for the duration of your visit (it must, otherwise we could not deliver the content to you). The application of the website stores some types of access to this page for seven or 60 days. If no error occurs for which a log is created, the IP address is also stored anonymously. In case of errors the entire IP is saved, but after 7 days the log entry is already deleted again.

A web analysis system in the form of Google Analytics is in use. But here too, the IP addresses are made anonymous. We do not get a personal reference to you with pure visitors.

We usually only receive personal data if you have a login on our site. Customers and interested parties will also find a special data protection notice.

General legal basis

In accordance with Article 13 of the GDPR, we will inform you of the legal basis for processing your data. Nabtesco Precision Europe GmbH, or the site provider, collect data on the basis of our legitimate interest, Article 6 Paragraph 1 letter f) GDPR. Because our interest is the safe and functional operation of this internet presence.

Terms / Definition of terms

This is based on Article 4 GDPR.

Personal data" means all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as "data subject"). 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 characteristics that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Processing" means any operation or series of operations carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures in connection with personal data, such as the collection, collection, organisation, classification, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, reconciliation or linking, restriction, erasure or destruction

Responsible" means a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body which alone or together with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data.

Collection / processing of personal data

We collect, use and pass on your personal data only if this is permitted by law, not otherwise specified in this data protection provision or if you consent to the collection and processing of data

What kind of data and the purpose can be found in the following sections.

Type of data processed

The following data is processed:

  • Visited Website
  • date and time at the time of access
  • Metadata and communication data
  • Amount of data sent in bytes
  • Source/reference from which you came to the page
  • Browser used
  • Operating system used
  • IP address used
  • protocols, status codes, data volumes
  • Inventory data (e.g. name, address)
  • Contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone number)
  • Content data (e.g. text input, photographs, videos)

IP addresses are stored anonymously on this website. It is then no longer possible to establish a personal reference.

But there are also exceptions, especially the following:

If IP addresses are stored within the error log, e.g. due to incorrect page views ("404" detection and similar) or incorrect logon attempts, the IP address is not anonymized. This is then necessary to analyze and correct technical errors during logon. Especially when "hacking" is often tried to call up content that does not exist, therefore our interest in the processing of this data prevails

Incidentally, the legal basis for the processing of these data with regard to pure visitors to the Internet presence is Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. Our interest is to ensure integrity. Confidentiality and availability of data processed via the website. For registered users of the website, the legal basis is Article 6 para. 1 lit. b) of the GDPR.

This is different if you have sent us an e-mail. This means that you are no longer a visitor to this page, but have a communication contact with us. This, in turn, is something completely different from this website.

Purpose of processing

  • Provision of the website offer, functions and contents
  • Communication with users
  • Possibility of contact inquiry and answering the same
  • Security measures
  • Reach measurement and marketing

Access Data / Log Data

On the basis of our legitimate interest pursuant to Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR, we / our hosting provider collect data on access to the server(s) that make the service available. This is log data of the server operating system and the application that the website provides. IP addresses are not completely stored. The last three digits are set to "0" (zero) in the access log. It is then no longer possible to establish a personal reference.

However, there are exceptions to every principle. IP addresses will not be anonymized and stored for 7 days in case of incorrect logins, non-existent pages or general errors. This allows technical errors to be analyzed and eliminated. And especially in case of hacking attempts we have the possibility to block certain IP addresses for our protection.

It is important to note that when weighing up interests, our interests predominate with regard to the processing of this data.

Deletion of data

Processed data shall be erased or restricted in processing in accordance with Articles 17 and 18 of the DSBER. Data stored by us will be deleted if it is no longer intended and there are no legal retention periods.

If deletion of the data is not possible because the data is required for other legally permissible purposes, data processing will be restricted. In this case, the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes.

Server log data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to investigate misuse cases. Anonymised log data (IP addresses) are kept for 60 days. It is then no longer possible to establish a personal reference. Error log data is deleted after seven days. If data are required for the preservation of evidence, they are excluded from deletion until the incident has been completely and finally clarified.

In accordance with §257 (1) HGB (trading books, inventories, balance sheets, commercial letters, accounting documents and others), they are stored for 6 years or in accordance with §147 (1) AO (books, management reports, business letters, tax-relevant documents and others) for 10 years..

Contact details / Contact us

If you contact us (e.g. contact form, e-mail, telephone, social media or event such as trade fairs and the like), your details will be processed for processing and reply in accordance with Article 6, paragraph 1, letter b) f). Your data can be stored in a CRM (Customer Relationship Management System) or similar. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Enquiries will be deleted by us so that they are no longer necessary. The necessity is reviewed annually.

On the basis of our business interests, we store information from business partners, interested parties, suppliers and organizers and other business partners, e.g. for the purpose of later contact. The majority of this data is company-related and is always stored permanently.

Data processing takes place primarily in the EU

Our web server is located in the EU at a German provider (Mittwald). And, an order processing contract according to Article 28 GDPR has been concluded with the provider. E-mails are processed by our own mail server, also here, within the EU.

Nevertheless, services are used by third parties (Google, LinkedIn, YouTube - details below), these are service providers from the USA, for us there is no comparable alternative from the EU. This is a pity, but unfortunately it is so.

Contractors / Third parties

Any disclosure of the data to third parties (persons or companies; contractors) within the framework of our processing, by transmission or other access, shall only take place on the basis of a legal permit. This may be necessary for the fulfilment of the contract according to Article 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR or there may be a legitimate interest, according to Article 6 para. 1 lit. f), in the use of contractors, web hosters and others. If we commission third parties on the basis of an order processing contract, this shall be on the basis of Article 28 GDPR.


We use an external hosting partner for the purpose of operating this website. Hosting services are used for this purpose: Infrastructure, operating system services, storage space, database services, security services and technical maintenance. These are required for the purpose of operating the website.

In doing so, we, or our hosting partner, process the data mentioned under "Type of data processed" on the basis of our legitimate interest in an efficient and secure provision of the website in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 letter f) GDPR in conjunction with Article 28 GDPR (contract for order processing).

Transfer to third countries

Processing in a third country (outside the EU (European Union) or EEA (European Economic Area)), or processing by third parties in a third country (disclosure or transfer), shall only take place if the specific conditions laid down in Articles 44 et seq. GDPR (processing on the basis of special categories, officially recognised determination of a data protection level equal to the EU (e.g. Privacy Shield, USA) or officially recognised contractual obligations (standard contractual clauses)) and if the processing takes place for the fulfilment of (pre)contractual obligations, on the basis of consent, legal obligations or on the basis of our legitimate interest.

Rights of the person concerned

Third-party services and content

On the basis of legitimate interest, in accordance with Article 6, paragraph 1, letter f), for analysis and optimisation, we use content and service offers from third parties on our website. For example, we can integrate their fonts, videos and images.

The prerequisite for this is that the provider perceives the IP address of the user (without IP address the contents cannot be delivered to the user's browser) as this is required for the presentation of the contents. Our effort is that we only use such content where the provider only uses the IP address to deliver the content

It is possible that the providers use Web Beacons and use them for statistical and marketing purposes (e.g. evaluation of visitor traffic on our website). It is also possible that this information is stored in cookies on the user's device and contains technical information, operating system used, referring websites, visit times and other information about the use of our website.

IP anonymisation is used on this website. The IP address of users will be reduced within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other signatory states to the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transmitted in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. This reduction eliminates the personal reference to your IP address. The user's IP address transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.

The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online offer by individual users, e.g. to create reports on the activity on the website in order to improve our online offer.

Data Protection Information Newsletter

You are interested in our company and our products. We are very pleased about that. We want to inform you comprehensively and transparently about the protection of your personal data. We are convinced that you have a right to be completely and transparently informed about what happens to your personal data.
It is important to note that we will not pass on your data to third parties.

However, there are also exceptions to principles. The operation of a newsletter is not trivial and cannot be implemented by ourselves with our own means. For this reason we use a technical service provider who processes the data.

It is our conviction that the distribution of information via e-mail newsletter is an important step to inform you about our services.

In our search for a technical service provider, we deliberately chose CleverReach. Data security, data protection and the appropriate range of functions for us are fulfilled here. The IT systems are located within the European Union (EU).

In general, we operate a "closed" newsletter. For example, it is not possible for "everyone" to register via a publicly accessible page. We enter the data into the IT system ourselves and only include existing customers and interested parties here (see also legal basis).

Content of the newsletter

With the e-mail newsletter, we provide you with information on our services, products, our company and invitations to events on the points mentioned.

What data do we process

We store for the dispatch of the e-mail newsletter exclusively your e-mail address, your first and last name and company with our newsletter service provider. It is in our interest and appreciation to address you personally in newsletters. For this we need your name in the CleverReach IT system. It is also in our interest to see to which companies we send our newsletter.

Analysis and usage behaviour

CleverReach offers a statistical evaluation of usage data. This allows us to see to how many users an e-mail was sent, whether an e-mail was rejected or whether a user unsubscribed from the newsletter after receiving the e-mail.

The tracking of opening and click rates enables us to delete newsletter recipients who have not used our newsletter for a longer period of time. In this way we save the recipient unnecessary e-mails and money (and this interest is obvious).

We can offer better performance through tracking and can identify which content is interesting for newsletter recipients and which is less.

Of course we hope, we are completely honest, through the tracking of opening and click rates also conversations, meetings at our events and hopefully also further contracts, because this is in our interest.

Legal basis

The legal basis for existing customers is Section 7 (3) UWG. For interested parties, this is Article 6 para. 1 lit. a) of the GDPR, your consent to the dispatch of newsletter e-mails.

In the evaluation, analysis and usage behaviour, the legal basis is our legitimate interest according to Article 6 para. 1 lit. f) (see above).

In general, an objection is possible at any time.

Rights as a data subject

You have the right to be informed about your personal data and you can contact us at any time.

In the case of a “request for information” which is not made in writing or which cannot be verified otherwise, you must expect that we make inquiries. We must ensure that you are the person you claim to be.

You have the right to correction or deletion or to restriction of the processing, as far as this is legally entitled to you.

Finally, you also have the right to revoke. With each newsletter you can unsubscribe or send us an e-mail to the address below.

You also have the right to data transfer.

Deadline and deletion

As soon as you unsubscribe from the e-mail newsletter you will be blocked in CleverReach and no further newsletter will be sent to you. We check this on a monthly basis and delete the personal data of users who have unsubscribed from the newsletter.

Since we and CleverReach are committed to data security and data protection, CleverReach regularly backs up your data. These are generally deleted after 30 days.

If you want to be deleted from the list

Every newsletter e-mail contains a note on how you can have your contact data deleted.

Alternatively, you can contact us at any time: info[at]

Change of our privacy policy

We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration will then apply for your next visit.
