Thank you for visiting our website and your interest in our company. The protection of your personal data is an important concern for us. For this reason, compliance with the strict legal provisions on data protection is a matter of course for us. Data protection begins with transparency. It is therefore our concern that you should always know when we store which of your personal data, for what purpose we use it, but also how you can restrict or prevent its use. Our data protection regulations are designed in such a way that they comply with the applicable data protection laws.
III Legal basis for the processing
Personal data is only collected, processed and used by us if we are legally permitted to do so or if you have given your consent.
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. an EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
When processing personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. As a company, we are subject, for example, to statutory storage obligations under the AO and the HGB.
If vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
IV. Recipient of the data
As a matter of principle, we only process personal data if we have your consent or legal permission to do so. This also applies to the transfer of data to third parties. We do not pass on your personal data to third parties for direct marketing purposes.
Your data will be processed and used within the EU/EEA. However, for certain processes, processing outside the EU/EEA is also necessary. If your data is processed outside the EU/EEA, we will take all necessary measures to ensure that the processing complies with data protection regulations in accordance with Art. 44 GDPR. We may share your personal information with the following recipients in accordance with applicable data protection laws and regulations:
- to third parties who assist us in operating the website
- within the MANN+HUMMEL Group
- within the framework of a valid legal procedure
We also take appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect personal data from theft, other loss, misuse and any unauthorised access during processing.
V. Your rights
Rights of data subjects
If your personal data is processed, you are the data subject within the meaning of the GDPR. Your rights are regulated in Chapter III of the GDPR.

Right of appeal to the supervisory authority
Unless prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which you are resident, your place of work or the place where the alleged infringement is committed, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you is in breach of the DPA.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted shall inform the complainant about the status and the results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Art. 78 GDPR.
Under Art. 77 GDPR, you are free to choose the supervisory authority. For example, you can address your complaint to the supervisory authority of the state of Baden-Württemberg which is responsible for MANN+HUMMEL.
