1. Controller, general principles, intended purpose

All personal data that we collect are saved and processed in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), and the Telemedia Act (TMG). The controller under data protection legislation and the service provider under the Telemedia Act is:

Makino Europe GmbH
Kruichling 18
73230 Kirchheim unter Teck
Germany

Tel: +49 (0) 7021 5030
Fax: +49 (0) 7021 503 400
E-mail: info@makino.eu

The bases for processing personal data are Articles 6(1)(a), 6(1)(b), and 6(1)(f) of the GDPR and Article 15 of the TMG.

If data can be entered on our website, e.g. for the purpose of requesting a quotation, subscribing to a newsletter, or when using a contact form, certain fields are marked as “mandatory”. These fields collect only the data that are required for performance of a contract or to carry out an action requested by you. You may, of course, provided us with further data on a voluntary basis. 

Your personal data are used and saved for the performance of existing contracts with you or to carry out an action requested by you (e.g. preparation of a quotation, reply to a query), and for advertising purposes (see also section 2). Personal data are erased once they are no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which they were collected. If we are required by law to retain data, these data will be blocked until the end of the retention period and then erased.

2. Advertising; principally e-mail newsletter

You have the right to object to the use of your personal data for the purpose of marketing at any time in writing, by fax, by e-mail, or by telephone with effect for the future, and to withdraw any consent you may have given in the past.

This applies, in particular, to e-mail newsletters, e.g. containing information on our products and services. We will only send you newsletters by e-mail if you have consented to the use of your data for this purpose. You can unsubscribe from an e-mail newsletter at any time with effect for the future, either by clicking on the relevant link in any e-mail newsletter or by contacting us using the contact details we have provided.

3. Disclosure of data to third parties

Your personal data are only known to those persons who are involved in dealing with your requests, handling your orders, and sending the newsletter. Your personal data will only be disclosed to third parties, provided this is required for the purpose of contract performance, if you have expressly consented to this disclosure or it is permitted under data protection legislation. However, only the data actually required in each case will be disclosed.

4. Rights of data subjects

In certain circumstances, you have the right to request access, free of charge, to the personal data concerning you that we have saved, to have incorrect data rectified, to request the erasure or restriction of processing, and to exercise the right to data portability. You may object to the use of your data at any time with effect for the future. In some cases, however, we may not completely erase user data due to statutory obligations to retain records. We would also like to remind you of your right to lodge a complaint with the State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information in Baden-Württemberg.

If you have any questions relating to how we process personal data, please contact our data protection officer:

5. Use of cookies

We use cookies on certain pages to help you navigate the website and make use of its functionality, e.g. when accessing password-protected areas. Without these cookies, we cannot provide certain services requested by you (Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR). 

If you have provided your consent, we will also use cookies, in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR, for the purpose of tracking, to improve the website’s functionality and services, to create statistics on how our website is used, and to gauge the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. Cookies also make it possible to retrieve information provided on a previous website visit (e.g. user name, language) to offer users personalised services. They are also used to tailor our website to your needs; to this end, pseudonymised usage profiles are created to enable an analysis of your use of the website. We also use cookies with enhanced tracking and targeting functions. These cookies are primarily used to deliver advertising that best suits you and your interests; it may also be possible to track a user on other websites. Targeting cookies also collect information that advertising networks can use to identify how often a user has visited our website; this information may be disclosed to other advertising companies.

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer. Most of the cookies we use are deleted from your hard drive at the end of your browser session (session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and make it possible for us to recognise your computer the next time you visit our website (persistent cookies). You can, of course, view our website without the use of cookies. Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. 

You can set your browser so that you are informed when a cookie is placed on your computer; this ensures that the use of cookies is transparent.

You can withdraw any consent you have given us at any time or object to data processing. The simplest way to do this is to prevent cookies from being saved on your hard drive by selecting “Do not accept cookies” in your browser settings. If you do this, however, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

6. Logs

When you visit our website, the data required to access it are saved on a server. These data generally includes your browser type and version, your operating system, the previously visited website, the access date and time of the server request, and the client’s file request (file name and URL). We use these data, in anonymised form, for statistical evaluations; they are not associated with you or any user.

7. Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, text files that are saved on your computer to help the website analyse how visitors use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA. 

IP anonymisation has been activated on this website, which means that Google will truncate the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. 

On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity, and providing us with other services relating to website usage and internet usage. In this context, pseudonymised usage profiles can be created from the processed data. Google will not associate your truncated IP address with any other data held by Google. 

You can prevent cookies from being saved on your hard drive by selecting “Do not accept cookies” in your browser settings. If you do so, however, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. 

You can also prevent Google’s collection and processing of the data (including your IP address) generated by the cookie by downloading and installing the browser plug-in to deactivate Googe Analytics available at the link below. 

The current link is: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

If using a browser on a mobile device, please click on the following link to set an opt-out cookie that will prevent Google Analytics from collecting data on this website in the future. Please note that this opt-out cookie works only in this browser and for this domain. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you will need to click on the link again.

For information on how Google uses data for marketing purposes and on how you can change your settings and object to the processing of data can be found on Google’s websites, e.g. at:

https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners/ (“How Google uses information from sites or apps that use our services”),

http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (“Advertising”),

https://www.google.com/settings/u/0/ads/authenticated?hl=en (“Make the ads you see more useful to you”).

8. Use of social plug-ins

We use plug-ins for the following social networks on our website:

LinkedIn (LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Ct, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA)

Youtube (Youtube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA)

You can recognise the plug-ins by their logos. 

The plug-ins forward your IP address to the servers of the respective provider. The social networks are thus informed that our website was visited using your IP address. If you are logged in to one of the social networks in the browser you also use to visit this website, the name of your account will also be forwarded. This allows social networks to associate your visit to this website with your user account. We do not receive any information about the data collected in this way and how they are used.

The plug-ins listed above are deactivated on our website using the “double-click” method. The specified data are only forwarded as set out above after you have moved the slide toggle and activated the plug-in. Until such time, the user remains invisible to the operators of the social media platforms.

The plug-ins listed above are deactivated on our website using the “Shariff” method. The specified data are only forwarded as set out above after you have clicked on a link to share content. Until such time, the user remains invisible to the operators of the social media platforms.

More information on how the personal data collected by plug-ins are used can be obtained from the providers at:

LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy

Youtube: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

9. Use of YouTube

We have embedded videos from YouTube, a website operated by Google (YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA), on our website. This also uses the “double-click” method. As a result, you are initially shown only a preview image on our website; this does not establish a connection to YouTube. A connection to YouTube is only made when you click on a preview image, at which point your IP address is forwarded to YouTube servers. YouTube is thus informed that our website was visited using your IP address. If you are logged in to YouTube in the browser you also use to visit this website, the name of your account will also be forwarded. This allows YouTube to associate your visit to this website with your user account. We do not receive any information about the data collected in this way and how they are used.
