Our internet pages use cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored on a computer by a web browser. Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters by which internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific web browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other web browsers that contain other cookies. A specific web browser can be recognized and identified via the unique cookie ID. The use of cookies enables us to provide users of our website with user-friendly services that would not be possible without these cookies. Visitors to our websites can prevent the usage of cookies by our website by setting this in their web browsers and, thus, permanently deactivating the usage of cookies. Cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via the web browser or other software programs. This is possible in all the common web browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the usage of cookies in their web browser, some functions of our website may not be fully usable under certain circumstances.

Collection and processing of personal data

Basically, the use of our web pages is possible without specifying any personal data. However, if a website visitor wishes to make use of the company's special services at our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. When it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned. In all other respects, no data is passed on to third parties. The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to celotec GmbH & Co.

Your rights

According to the GDPR, you have the following rights:

The right to be informed about the processing of your data

You have the right to request information from us about whether or not personal data that you have provided to celotec GmbH & Co. KG can be processed (and if so, which data). You have the right to the following information:

  • The processing purposes
  • The categories of your personal data that is being processed
  • The recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed
  • If possible, the planned duration for which your personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this duration;
  • If the personal data have not been collected from you, then all available information about the origin of such personal data
  • The existence of automated decision making, including profiling in accordance with Article 22 of the EU GDPR, and, at least in these cases, meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended impact of such processing for you.

We will provide you with a copy of your personal data that is the subject of the processing. If we have reasonable doubts as to the identity of the person requesting information, we will request additional information to confirm the identity of the person affected (the data subject).

Right to correction (rectification)

You have the right to demand that we immediately correct any incorrect personal data. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data – also by means of a supplementary declaration.

Right to deletion

Your personal data will be deleted if you assert a claim for deletion in writing and when this does not conflict with statutory storage rights or obligations. We will also delete your personal data whenever the data is no longer required for the purpose for which it was stored, or if its storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons and the deletion does not contradict the statutory retention periods.

Right to restrict the processing

You are entitled to demand a restriction on the processing of your personal data if the correctness of the personal data is not ensured. This restriction shall last until celotec makes it possible to verify the correctness of the personal data. If the processing is unlawful and you do not want to delete the personal data but instead request us to restrict the use of the personal data, we will follow your request. Data will not be deleted if we need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of our own legal claims or if you have lodged an objection against the processing in accordance with Article 21 paragraph 1 of the EU-GDPR, as long as it is not yet clear whether the justified reasons of celotec outweigh your reasons.

Right to object to the processing

You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data, which takes place on the basis of Article 6 of the EU-GDPR. If you object, celotec will no longer process your personal data, unless we can prove compelling protection-worthy grounds for processing which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or when the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Right to transfer data

You have the right to receive the personal data relating to you that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another responsible person without our interference. This is subject to the condition that this processing is based on a consent pursuant to Article 6 or Article 9 of the EU-GDPR, or based on a contract, and that this processing is carried out using automated procedures. You also have the right to have your personal data transferred directly by celotec to another responsible party whenever this is technically feasible.

Right to revoke your given consent with effect into the future

A revocation of your given consent can take place at any time with effect into the future. No costs shall arise from such a revocation, objection or need for information. Please send your revocation by e-mail to

Right to complain to the data protection supervisory authority

If you believe that the processing of your personal data violates applicable data protection regulations, then you have the right at any time to complain to the supervisory authority responsible in your country, in accordance with Article 77 of the EU-GDPR.
