1. STADLER ® Data Protection Declaration Responsible in the sense of data protection legislation, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is: STADLER Anlagenbau GmbH Max-Planck-Str. 21 88361 Altshausen  

 2. Your rights If data processing occurs as mentioned in Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. e or f DSGVO your rights are based on Art. 21 Abs. 1 DSGVO. You can contact our Data Protection Officer at any time under the contact data given here to exercise your rights to:

  • Information about the personal data we store and how we process it
  • Correction of incorrect personal data
  • Deletion of your personal data stored by us
  • Restriction of data processing if we are not yet permitted to delete your data because of statutory obligations
  • Rejection of our processing of your data
  • Data transferability if you have agreed to data processing or concluded a contract with us.

3.       Purposes of data processing by us and third parties  We only process your personal data for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration. We do not pass your personal data on to third parties for any purposes other than the purposes stated. We only pass your personal data on to third parties if:

  • You have expressly agreed to this
  • The processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you
  • The processing is necessary to meet a statutory obligation

The processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and when there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding, legitimate interest in the non-transfer of your data. 

 4. Data deletion or blocking We act according to the principles of data avoidance and minimisation. That means we only store your personal data as long as necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or to comply with legally required terms. As soon as the purpose is fulfilled or the term ends, we routinely block or delete the data according to legal requirements.

 5.  Logging of general information when you visit our website On the one hand, data is collected as you communicate it to us (e.g. via contact formular), on the other when you access our website, a cookie automatically records general information. This information, in the form of server logfiles, includes e.g. the type of web browser and the operating system you use as well as the domain name of your internet service provider and similar information. This is exclusively information which cannot be traced to you personally. It is technically necessary so that the contents of our website can be correctly delivered to you and is required for any use of the internet. This information is processed in particular for these purposes (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO):

  • Ensuring problem-free access to the website
  • Ensuring effective use of the website
  • Evaluating system safety and stability
  • Further administrative purposes.

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest in data logging for the above purposes. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Only our company and, if necessary, order processing companies we engage receive your data. We may statistically evaluate this type of anonymous information in order to optimise our website and the technology we use. Please note that data transfers via Internet (e.g. via e-mail) can be vulnerable due to security flaws. Therefore, complete protection of your data towards third parties cannot be ensured.   Inquiries via e-mail, phone or fax If you contact us via e-mail, phone or fax we will process your inquiry including all personal data. We will store the data but not pass it to third parties except you agree on it. If your inquiry concerns the fulfillment of a contract or precontractual actions the processing of your data is based on Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. b DSGVO. Other reasons that allow us to process your data are your agreement (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO) and/or our legitimate interest (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO). Data that you sent us via inquiries remain in our storage until you ask us to delete them, you reject the storage of your data or there is no more purpose to store the data. Exceptions are applicable for mandatory statutory regulations.   

6.       SSL encryption To safeguard your data during transfer, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS. 

7.     Use of Google Analytics  This website uses Google Analytics, a Web analysis service from Google Inc. (in the following: Google). We concluded a contract with Google to process orders. By using Google Analytics we are compliant to the strict regulations of the German data protection authorities.  Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files stored on your computer which allow an analysis of your use of the website. This storage is based on Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The information about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address within member states of the European Union or the European Economic Area is first shortened by Google. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On our behalf, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activities and provide us with other services relating to website and internet use. The IP address transferred to Google Analytics by your browser is not linked to other Google data. Furthermore, the website uses a tool of Google Analytics in order to collect demographic characteristics to create reports about your age, sex and interests. The data is processed to evaluate the use of the website and compile reports about activities on the website. The purpose is to be able to provide further services based on visitors’ use of the website and the internet. This processing is in the legitimate interest of the website operator. The data cannot be connected to you personally. You can deactivate this tool in your Google account or disagree on the collection of your data through Google as mentioned in “Your rights”.      You can prevent cookies being saved by altering settings in your browser software. However, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use all the website functions fully. Furthermore, you can prevent the data generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) from being sent to Google or processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available here:  Browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics . You can find more information about handling with user data in Google’s data protection declaration ( Additionally, or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can opt out of tracking by Google Analytics on our website by clicking on  Click on this link . This installs an opt-out cookie on your device. As long as the cookie is installed on your browser, it prevents data logging by Google Analytics for this website and browser.

  Google Analytics Remarketing Our websites use Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with tools of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick that operate across multiple devices (provider: Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). By the use of this tool interest and personal based advertising can be created. The created advertising is based on your prior web surfing activity. If you have agreed Google connects your web and app history with your Google account. Thus, customized advertising can be sent across every device that is connected with your Google account. You can disagree on remarketing/ targeting across multiple devices through the following link: . The summary of the collected data in your Google account is based on your agreement to Google on which you can disagree at any time (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO). Data collection that is not summarised via your Google account (e.g. because you do not have a Google account or disagreed on the summary of the collected data) is based on Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO. You can find further information and data protection regulations in Google’s data protection declaration ( ).   

8.       Using script libraries (Google web fonts)  We use script and font libraries such as Google web fonts so that the contents of our website are displayed attractively and correctly, whatever browser you use ( ).  Google web fonts are transferred to your browser cache so they don’t have to be loaded repeatedly. If your browser does not support the Google web fonts or prevents access to them, the contents are displayed in a standard font.  Accessing script or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible that library operators could then collect data, although at present it is unclear whether they do and if so for what purpose. You can find the privacy policy of the library operator Google here:     

9.       Use of Google Maps  This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographical information. When you use Google Maps, Google also logs, processes and uses data about the use of the map function. Data processing is based on legitimate interest based on Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Find out further information about data processing by Google from  Google’s privacy policy information ( . In the data protection centre there, you can also alter your personal data protection settings. Find more detailed information about managing your own data in connection with Google products here. 

10.     Embedded YouTube videos Some of our pages contain embedded YouTube videos. The required plugins are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with a YouTube plugin, a connection is established to a Youtube server. This informs YouTube which page you are visiting. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can trace your surfing behaviour to you personally. If you want to prevent this, log out of your YouTube account beforehand. We use YouTube in order to present our online offers attractively. This is a legitimate interest as mentioned in Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO. When you start a YouTube video, the provider uses cookies that log data about user behaviour. If you have opted out of cookies for the Google Ad program, these cookies will not be set when you watch YouTube videos. However, YouTube saves non-personalised user data in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you need to block cookies in your browser.  You can find more information about data protection at YouTube in the privacy policy at:   

11.  Social plugins We use social plugins from the providers listed below on our website. You can recognise them from the corresponding logo. The plugins may send information, possibly including personal data, to the service provider, which may then use the data. We provide a 2-click solution to prevent data being transferred to service providers without your knowledge or consent. This means you have to click on a button to activate a social plugin. Only then can data be logged by and transferred to the service provider. We do not log personal data via social plugins or their use. We have no influence on what data an activated plugin collects or how the provider uses it. Currently it can be assumed that the provider creates a direct connection to its services and at least the IP address plus device-related information is logged and used. Service providers may also try to save cookies on your computer. Please see the privacy policy of the specific service provider to find out which data is saved and how it is used. You should know that if you are simultaneously logged in to Facebook, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a specific website. Embedded in our website are the social media buttons of the following companies: YOUTUBE Facebook 

12. Alterations to our data protection regulations  We reserve the right to alter this data protection declaration so that it always complies with current legal requirements, or reflects changes in our services, e.g. when we introduce new services. The new data protection declaration is then valid for your next visit.   

13. Social Media   We have a public social media account on Facebook ( Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA). Social networks as Facebook, Google+ etc. are able to analyse user behaviour. Legal basis is Art. 6 Abs. 1 DSGVO . However, the analysation can be based on another legal basis that has to be indicated by the operators of the social network. Data is collected either through your social media account or through cookies. Through these data user profiles can be created that represent the users’ interests and preferences. Interest related advertising can be spread among all devices that were once connected with the users’ social media account. Please note that data processing through social networks is not entirely transparent and that our possibilities to influence the data processing of social networks are very limited. You can find details on data processing in the specific social network’s terms of use and data protection declaration. We are responsible for data processing in corporation with the social network. Therefore, you can assert your rights (such as deletion or restriction of data) against us or the specific social network. Data that was processed through social media will be deleted by our system immediately as soon as the purpose of its storage is fulfilled, you request us to delete it, you disagree on storing it or there is no purpose to store it. Saved cookies remain on your device until you delete it. Compelling regulations by law remain unaffected by this, especially legal obligation to retain data. You can find more information about storage periods in the data protection declaration of the specific social network.
