We welcome you on our web pages and appreciate your interest. The protection of your personal data is very important to us. Therefore, we conduct our activities in accordance with applicable personal data protection and data security legislation. Therefore, we act in accordance with the laws concerning personal data and data security. We would like to inform you below which data of your visit is used for which purpose. Should there be any further questions concerning the handling of your personal data, you are welcome to contact our data protection supervisor:
The concept of personal data is defined in the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz and in the EU GDPR. Accordingly, these are individual details about personal or material circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, your civil name, your address, your telephone number or your date of birth.
Unless otherwise stated in the following sections, no personal data is collected, processed or used when using our websites. However, we find out through the use of analysis and tracking tools certain technical information based on the data transmitted by your browser (for example, browser type/version, operating system used, our visited websites including length of stay, previously visited website). We only evaluate this information for statistical purposes.
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a part of, art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out precontractual actions.
Insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation that is subject to our company, art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In the event that 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 processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the former interest, art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
It is always possible to turn off the setting of cookies by changing the option in the Internet browser. The Cookies set can be deleted. It should be noted that disabling cookies may not fully exploit all features of our website. The data of the users collected in this way are pseudonymized by technical precautions. Therefore, an assignment of the data to the calling user is no longer possible. The data will not be stored together with other personal data of the users.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes is provided after the user has consented to this art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
Each time the website is accessed, the Stahl-Service Westhoff GmbH records data and information through an automated system. These are stored in the log files of the server. The data is also stored in the log files of our system. A storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.
The following data can be collected here:
On the websites of the Stahl-Service Westhoff GmbH there is a contact form that can be used for electronic contact. Alternatively, contact via the provided e-mail address is possible. If the data subject contacts the controller through one of these channels, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be automatically stored. The storage serves solely for purposes of processing or contacting the person concerned. A transfer of data to third parties does not take place. Legal basis for the processing of the data is in the presence of the consent of the user art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
The legal basis for the processing of the data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If the e-mail contact aims to conclude a contract, then additional legal basis for the processing is art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been finally clarified.
The controller will only process and store personal data of the data subject for as long as necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage. In addition, such storage may take place if provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible for processing is subject.
As soon as the storage purpose is removed or a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned regulations expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or deleted.
If your personal data has been processed, you are affected in the sense of the GDPR and you have the following rights to the responsible person:
You may ask the person in charge to confirm if personal data concerning you is processed by us.

You have the right to request information about whether the personal data relating to you is transferred to a third country or to an international organization. In this connection, you can request the appropriate guarantees in accordance with art. 46 GDPR in connection with the transmission of information.
You have a right to rectification and/or completion to the controller, if the processed personal data concerning you is incorrect or incomplete. The responsible person must make the correction without delay.
You may request the restriction of the processing of your personal data under the following conditions:
a. if you contest the accuracy of your personal information for a period of time that enables the controller to verify the accuracy of your personal information;
b. the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead request the restriction of the use of the personal data;
c. the controller no longer requires personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or
d. if you objected to the processing pursuant to art. 21 (1) GDPR and have not yet determined whether the legitimate reasons of the person responsible outweighed your reasons.
If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, this data – except for your storage – may only be used with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a member State.
If the limitation of the processing under the conditions mentioned above are restricted, you will be informed by the person in charge before the restriction is lifted.

a. Your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
b. You revoke your consent to the processing pursuant to art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for processing.
c. Pursuant to art. 21 para. 1 GDPR you give objection to the processing and there are no prior justifiable reasons for the processing, or pursuant to art. 21 (2) GDPR you give objection to the processing.
d. Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.
e. The deletion of personal data concerning you is required to fulfill a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the member States to which the controller is subject.
f. The personal data concerning you was collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to art. 8 para. 1 GDPR.
If the person in charge has made the personal data concerning you public and pursuant to article 17 (1) of the GDPR is required to delete it, is taking due account of the technology available and the costs of implementation, including appropriate technical measures, to inform data controllers who process the personal data that you have requested the deletion of any links to such personal data or copies or replications of such personal data.
The right to deletion does not exist if the processing is necessary
a. to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
b. to fulfill a legal obligation required by the law of the Union or of the member States to which the controller is subject, or to perform a task of public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller;
c. for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to art. 9 (2) lit. h and i and art. 9 (3) GDPR;
d. for archival purposes of public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to article 89 (1) of the GDPR, in so far as the law referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to render impossible or seriously affect the achievement of the objectives of that processing, or
e. to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If you have the right of rectification, erasure or restriction of processing to the controller, he/she is obliged to notify all recipients to whom your personal data has been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or restriction of processing, unless: this proves to be impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have a right to the person responsible to be informed about these recipients.
You have the right to receive the personal information that you provide to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another person without hindrance by the person responsible for providing the personal data, provided that
a. the processing on a consent acc. art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract acc. art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR is based and
b. the processing is done by automated means.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to obtain the personal data concerning you directly from one person responsible to another person responsible, as far as technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons may not be affected.
The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority delegated to the controller.
You have the right at any time, for reasons that arise from your particular situation, to object against the processing of your personal data, which pursuant to art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR takes place; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is intended to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If the personal data relating to you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.
Regardless of directive 2002/58/EC, you have the option, in the context of the use of information society services, of exercising your right to object through automated procedures that use technical specifications.
You have the right to revoke your data protection consent declaration at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal effect on you or, in a similar manner, significantly affects it. This does not apply if the decision
a. is required for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,
b. is permissible on the basis of Union or member State legislation to which the controller is subject, and that legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
c. with your express consent.
However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to art. 9 (1) GDPR, unless art. 9 (2) lit. a or g and reasonable procedures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
Regarding the cases mentioned in a. and c., the person responsible shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the controller, to express his or her own position and to contest the decision.
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the member State of its place of residence, employment or the place of the alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of your personal data violates against GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under article 78 of the GDPR.
Description and purpose
We use for the integration of videos among others the provider Vimeo. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo LLC with headquarters at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011. On some of our websites we use plugins from the provider Vimeo. When you access the web pages of our website that are equipped with such a plug-in - for example our media library or e-learning - a connection to the Vimeo servers is established and the plug-in is displayed. This tells the Vimeo server which of our websites you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Vimeo, Vimeo assigns this information to your personal user account. When you use the plugin, such as when you click on the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from Vimeo.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is consent in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.
The recipient is Vimeo LLC, headquartered at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.

Description and purpose
On our website we use tawk.to to provide you with a live chat. This gives you the opportunity to contact us quickly and easily and get a quick answer.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is the legitimate interest according to Art. 6 Par. 1 letter f) GDPR.
The recipient of the data is tawk.to Inc., 187 East Warm Springs Rd, SB298, Las Vegas, Nevada, 89119.
Transfer to third countries
Your data will be transferred to a tawk.to server in the USA and processed and stored there. The collected data will be anonymized beforehand, but this does not exclude the possibility that pseudonymous user profiles could be created. The personal data will be transmitted on the basis of Art. 46 and/or Art. 49 para. 1 letter a) DSGVO.
Duration of data storage
We endeavor to collect only those personal data that are necessary for the purposes for which they are collected and not to store such data for longer than necessary for those purposes. The duration of storage of personal data and the criteria for determining this duration depend on the nature of the personal data and the purpose for which it was made available.
Possibility to object
Contractual or legal obligation
There is no contractual or legal obligation to provide the data.
Further data protection information via link
The controller may transfer personal data to a third country. In principle, the controller may provide various appropriate safeguards to ensure that an adequate level of protection is provided for the processing operations. It is possible to transfer data transfers on the basis of an adequacy finding, internal data protection rules, approved codes of conduct, standard data protection clauses or an approved certification mechanism pursuant to Art. 46 para. 2 letters a) - f) GDPR.
If the person responsible undertakes a transfer to a third country on the legal basis of Art. 49 para. 1 a) GDPR, you will be informed at this point about the possible risks of a data transfer to a third country.
There is a risk that the third country receiving your personal data may not provide an equivalent level of protection compared to the protection of personal data in the European Union. This may be the case, for example, if the EU Commission has not issued an adequacy decision for the third country in question or if certain agreements between the European Union and the third country in question are declared invalid. Specifically, there are risks in some third countries with regard to the effective protection of EU fundamental rights through the use of monitoring laws (e.g. USA). In such a case, it is the responsibility of the controller and the recipient to assess whether the rights of data subjects in the third country enjoy a level of protection equivalent to that in the Union and can be effectively enforced.
However, the basic data protection regulation should not undermine the level of protection of natural persons ensured throughout the Union when personal data are transferred from the Union to controllers, processors or other recipients in third countries or to international organisations, even if personal data are further transferred from a third country or from an international organisation to controllers or processors in the same or another third country or to the same or another international organisation.
Purpose and description
It can happen that within this online offer contents of third parties, such as videos, fonts or graphics from other websites are integrated. This always requires that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as "third party providers") are aware of the IP address of the users. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. We make every effort to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on this if the third-party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. As far as we are aware of this, we inform the users about it. We would like to provide and improve our online offer through these integrations.
In all other cases, our legitimate interest in an appropriate presentation of our online presence and in user-friendly and economically efficient services on our part is the appropriate legal basis (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR). For further information, please refer to the respective data protection information of the providers.
Contractual or legal obligation to provide personal data
The provision of personal data is neither legally nor contractually required and is also not necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are also not obliged to provide the personal data. However, failure to provide it may mean that you are unable to use this function or cannot use it to its full extent.
Personal data is stored for the duration of the respective legal retention period. After expiry of the deadline, the data will be routinely deleted, unless there is a need for a contract or fulfillment of the contract.
If special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 Para. 1 DSGVO are voluntarily provided within the framework of the application procedure, they will also be processed in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. b DSGVO (e.g. health data, such as severely disabled status or ethnic origin). Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO are requested from applicants as part of the application procedure, their processing will also be carried out in accordance with Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO (e.g. health data if they are required for the exercise of a profession).
If provided, applicants can submit their applications via an online form on our website. The data will be transmitted to us encrypted according to the state of the art.
Applicants can also send us their applications by e-mail. Please note, however, that e-mails are generally not sent in encrypted form and the applicants themselves must ensure that they are encrypted. We therefore cannot assume any responsibility for the transmission path of the application between the sender and the reception on our server and therefore recommend using an online form or postal dispatch. Instead of applying using the online form and e-mail, applicants still have the option of sending their application by post.
In the event of a successful application, the data provided by the applicants can be further processed by us for the purposes of the employment relationship. Otherwise, if the application for a job offer is not successful, the applicant's data will be deleted. Applicant data will also be deleted if an application is withdrawn, which applicants are entitled to do at any time.
Subject to justified revocation by the applicants, the data will be deleted after a period of six months so that we can answer any follow-up questions regarding the application and meet our obligations to provide evidence under the Equal Treatment Act. Invoices for any reimbursement of travel expenses will be archived in accordance with the provisions of tax law.
We have taken extensive technical and operational safeguards to protect your data from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Our security procedures are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress. In addition, privacy is granted on an ongoing basis through constant auditing and optimization of the privacy organization.
