Zeutschel GmbH, hereinafter Zeutschel, is delighted by your interest in the company. Data protection enjoys a particularly high status with the management of Zeutschel GmbH. As a general rule, the web pages of Zeutschel GmbH can be used without divulging any personal data. If a data subject would like to make use of special services offered by our company through our Internet site, it might be necessary to process their personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the data subject’s consent.
A data subject’s personal data, e.g. name, address, email address or telephone number are always processed in conformity with the General Data Protection Regulation and in compliance with the specific national data protection provisions applicable to Zeutschel. Our company would like to use this privacy notice to inform the public of the way in which we collect, process and use personal data, the extent to which we do so, and our underlying purpose. This privacy notice also informs data subjects of their rights.
As the controller responsible for the processing, Zeutschel has taken numerous technical and organizational steps to ensure that the personal data processed through this website are as comprehensively protected as possible. Nevertheless, data transmission via the Internet can be subject to security loopholes by the very nature of things, with the result that no absolute protection can be guaranteed. For this reason, any data subject is free to also send us personal data by alternative means, e.g. by telephone.
Definition of terms

Registration of general data and information
As part of processing on our behalf, a third-party provider will provide the services for hosting and displaying the website for us. All data collected in the course of using this website, as described below, are processed on its servers. Data are only processed on other servers within the bounds explained here.
This service provider is located within a country of the European Union.
The hosting services used by us serve to provide the following services:
- Infrastructure and platform services
- Computing power
- Storage space and database services
- Security services as well as technical maintenance services
which we use for the purpose of operating this website.
In the process, we or our hosting provider only process data on the basis of our legitimate interest in the efficient, secure provision of this online offer in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f GDPR in conjunction with Art. 28 GDPR (conclusion of a commissioned processing contract).
Third-party content and services
The offering on our website may also include content, services and benefits from other providers that complement our own offering.
Calling up such services from a third-party site requires the regular transmission of your IP address. Such providers are thus able to see your user IP address and to store it. We favor the use of third-party providers who only use the IP addresses to deliver their content. However, we have no control over which third-party providers may save the IP address. Such storage may serve statistical purposes, for example. If we obtain knowledge that third-party providers are performing such storage, we will immediately draw our users’ attention to this fact.
Our website uses SSL encryption whenever the transmission of confidential or personal content belonging to our users is involved. For example, this encryption is activated when processing payment transactions as well as for inquiries which you send us via our website.
Please make sure that SSL encryption is activated at your end for any corresponding activities. It is easy to see when encryption is being used. Your browser address bar changes from “http://” to “https://”. SSL encrypted data cannot be read by third parties. Only transmit confidential information if SSL encryption is activated, and contact us if you have any doubts.
Every time Zeutschel GmbH’s website is called up by a data subject or automated system, it registers a series of data and information. These general data and information are stored in the server’s log files. The following information may be registered:
(1) browser type and version used,
(2) the operating system used by the accessing system,
(3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (the so-called referrer),
(4) the sub-pages called up on our website by an accessing system,
(5) the date and time when the website is accessed,
(6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address),
(7) the Internet Service Provider of the accessing system, and
(8) any similar data and information that serve to defend any attacks on our information technology systems.
In using these general data and information, Zeutschel GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather we need this information in order to
(1) correctly transmit content on our website,
(2) optimize the content on our website and any advertising for it,
(3) guarantee the permanent functionality of our IT systems and guarantee the technology behind our website, and
(4) provide law enforcement authorities the information they need for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.
Zeutschel evaluates these anonymously collected data and information on the one hand for statistical purposes and on the other with the aim of enhancing the data protection and data security in our company in order ultimately to ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data in the server log files are stored separately from all personal data supplied by a data subject.
Working with “commissioned processors” and “third parties”
If we disclose or transmit data to other individuals and companies (“commissioned processors” or “third parties”) in the course of our processing, or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of
- legal authorization (e.g. necessity of sending data to payment service providers in accordance with Art. 6 (1) b GDPR to fulfill a contract)
- your consent
- a legal obligation or
- our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, IT maintenance orders, etc.)
Insofar as we commission “third parties” to process data on the basis of a so-called “commissioned processing contract”, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.
Transfers to third countries
Insofar as we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) or this occurs in the course of using the services of “third parties” or disclosing or transmitting data to “third parties”, this is only done if it is necessary
- to meet our (pre)-contractual obligations
- on the basis of your consent
- due to a legal obligation or
- on the basis of our legitimate interests.
Subject to legal or contractual authorization, we only process data or have them processed in a third country if the special conditions specified in Art. 44 ff. GDPR apply. This means, for example, that the processing is carried out on the basis of special guarantees such as official recognition that the data protection level matches that of the EU or to meet special, officially recognized, contractual obligations (so-called “standard contractual clauses”).

When registering for the newsletter, the user’s IP address is stored as well as the date and time of registration. This serves to prevent any abuse of the services or the data subject’s email address. The data will not be passed on to third parties. An exception applies if there is a legal obligation to transfer them. The data will be used exclusively for the dispatch of the newsletter. The subscription to the newsletter can by canceled at any time by the data subject. Equally, consent to the storage of personal data can be revoked at any time.

This enables rapidmail to establish whether a newsletter mail has been opened. Furthermore, with the aid of rapidmail, we can determine whether links in the newsletter message have been clicked on and if so, which ones. All the links in the email are so-called tracking links with which your clicks can be counted. Depending on the font in which the particular newsletter is designed, a connection is established with external servers such as Google Fonts.

Receiver: The receiver of the data is rapidmail GmbH.
Transfer to third countries: Data are not transferred to third countries.
Duration: The data stored by us on you as part of your consent to the purpose of the newsletter will be stored by us until you are removed from the newsletter’s circulation and deleted both from our servers and from rapidmail’s servers after the newsletter has been canceled. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members’ area) will not be affected.
Right of revocation: You have the option at any time to revoke your consent to the processing of your data with effect for the future. Such revocation will not affect the lawfulness of the data processing already carried out.

Data protection provisions for the deployment and use of Facebook
The controller has placed a link to its Facebook page on this website. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is a social meeting point operated on the Internet, an online community which usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or it can enable the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables users of the social network, among other things, to create private profiles, upload photos and build a network through friend requests.
Facebook is operated by Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada, the controller is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Clicking on the Facebook link on one of the individual pages of this website operated by the controller, will open the controller’s Facebook page in a new browser window.
If the data subject is logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook can see which specific subpage of our website the data subject visits every time they call up our website and for the entire duration of their stay on our site. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned to the data subject’s Facebook account by Facebook. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons embedded in our website, e.g. the “Like” button, or if the data subject posts a comment, Facebook will assign this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and it will save these personal data.
The Facebook component will then always inform Facebook that the data subject has visited our website if they are logged into Facebook at the same time as they call up our website; this happens regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not wish any such transfer of information to Facebook, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Facebook account before calling up our website.
The Data Guideline published by Facebook which can be called up at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/ reveals how Facebook collects, processes and uses personal data. It also explains the settings offered by Facebook to protect the privacy of the data subject. There are also various applications available which allow you to prevent the transmission of data to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to prevent data from being transmitted to Facebook.
You can call up the Facebook social media network via external links on the website. All functions in the social media network are offered by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland.
If you are logged into Facebook with your own profile and you call up Zeutschel’s social media channel, Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd. is able to match your visit to your logged-in profile. If you do not want your user account to be matched with your IP address, please log out of your Facebook account before using our website.
Data protection provisions for the deployment and use of Twitter
The controller has placed Twitter components on this website. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly accessible microblogging service on which users can publish and spread so-called tweets, i.e. short messages, limited to 280 characters. These short messages can be called up by anyone, including people not logged into Twitter. However, the tweets are also shown to the so-called followers of the relevant user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow the tweets of a user. Twitter also allows you to reach a broad audience through hashtags, links or retweets.
Twitter is operated by Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.
Every time one of the individual pages of this website operated by the controller and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) has been installed, is called up, the relevant Twitter component automatically causes the Internet browser on the IT system of the data subject to download a description of the corresponding Twitter component from Twitter. Further information on the Twitter buttons can be found at: https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons In the course of this technical procedure, Twitter is informed of the specific subpage of our website visited by the data subject. The purpose of integrating the Twitter component is to enable our users to further disseminate the contents of this website, make this website known in the digital space and increase our visitor numbers.
If the data subject is logged into Twitter at the same time, Twitter can see which specific subpage of our website the data subject visits every time they call up our website and for the entire duration of their stay on our site. This information is collected by the Twitter component and assigned to the data subject’s Twitter account by Twitter. If the data subject clicks on one of the Twitter buttons embedded in our website, the data and information transmitted as a result are matched with the data subject’s personal Twitter user account and saved and processed by Twitter.
Twitter is always notified via the Twitter component that the data subject has visited our website if they are logged into Twitter at the same time as they call up our website; this happens regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Twitter component or not. If the data subject does not wish any such transfer of information to Twitter, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Twitter account before calling up our website.
Data protection provisions for the deployment and use of Vimeo
The controller has placed Vimeo components on this website. Vimeo is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to post video clips. For technical reasons, the integration of Vimeo videos leads to Vimeo’s servers being called up. In the process, your browser or device data are transferred to the Vimeo server. Information about which of our pages you have visited is also transmitted in the process.

Data protection provisions for the deployment and use of LinkedIn
The controller has placed a link to its LinkedIn page on this website. LinkedIn is a social network.
A social network is a social meeting point operated on the Internet, an online community which usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or it can enable the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. LinkedIn enables users of the social network, among other things, to create private profiles, upload photos and build a network through friend requests.
LinkedIn is operated by LinkedIn Corporation, 1000 W. Maude Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94085, USA.
If a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada, the controller is LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company
Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Clicking on the LinkedIn link on one of the individual pages of this website operated by the controller, will open the controller’s LinkedIn page in a new browser window.
If the data subject is logged into LinkedIn at the same time, LinkedIn can see which specific subpage of our website the data subject visits every time they call up our website and for the entire duration of their stay on our site. This information is collected by the LinkedIn component and assigned to the data subject’s LinkedIn account by LinkedIn. If the data subject clicks on one of the LinkedIn buttons embedded in our website, e.g. the “Follow” button, or if the data subject posts a comment, LinkedIn will assign this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the data subject and it will save these personal data. If the data subject does not wish any such transfer of information to LinkedIn, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their LinkedIn account before calling up our website.
The Data Guideline published by LinkedIn which can be called up at https://de.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy?src=li-other&veh=de.linkedin.com%7Cli-other&trk=homepage-basic_footer-about reveals how LinkedIn collects, processes and uses personal data.
Legal basis for processing
Art. 6 I a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing in which we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose.
If personal data are required to be processed to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a contracting party, as is the case, for example, when processing is required for a delivery of goods or for providing another service or consideration, Art. 6 I b GDPR serves as the legal basis of the processing. This also applies to processing which is required to carry out pre-contractual steps, e.g. in the case of inquiries regarding our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, for example, to meet tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I c GDPR.
On rare occasions, it might be necessary to process personal data in order to protect the data subject’s vital interests or those of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our plant were injured, making it necessary to pass on their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In that case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 I d GDPR.
Finally, data processing could be based on Art. 6 I f GDPR. This serves as the legal basis for processing not covered by any of the above-mentioned cases if the processing is necessary to uphold a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, provided it is not outweighed by the interests, basic rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject. We are permitted to use such processing grounds because they were specifically mentioned by European legislators. Their view was that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
Legitimate interests in processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Art. 6 I f GDPR, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business activities to further the prosperity of all our employees and shareholders.
Length of time for which personal data are stored
The criterion for the length of time for which personal data are stored is the statutory period of retention in each case. After this deadline expires, the corresponding data are deleted as a matter of routine provided they are no longer required to fulfill or initiate a contract.
Statutory or contractual regulations on the provision of personal data; necessity for conclusion of contract; obligation of the data subject to provide their personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly prescribed in law (e.g. tax regulations) or can result from contractual obligations (e.g. details of contractual partner). Sometimes the conclusion of a contract may require a data subject to provide us with personal data which consequently have to be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with it. Any failure to provide personal data would mean that no contract could be concluded with the data subject. Before the data subject provides personal data, they must contact one of our employees. The latter will clarify for the data subject based on the individual case whether the provision of personal data is statutorily or contractually prescribed or is required to conclude the contract, whether there is any obligation to provide personal data and what the consequences would be of not providing personal data.
Existence of an automated decision-making process
As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
