1. Data protection at a glance
Data collection on this website
Who is responsible for data collection on this website?
Data on this website is processed by the operator of the website. You can find the contact details in the legal notice of this website.
How do we collect your data?
On the one hand, your data is collected when you share it with us. For example, it can be data that you enter in a contact form.
Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems or upon your consent when you visit the website. This is mostly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system, or the time that you visit the site). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter this website.
What do we use your data for?
Part of the data is collected to ensure that the website is provided correctly. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour.
What rights do you have with respect to your data?
You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient, and purpose of your stored personal data free of charge at any time. You also have the right to request that this data be corrected or erased. If you have consented to the processing of your data, you may withdraw this consent for the future at any time. In addition, you also have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted in certain circumstances. Furthermore, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.
For this purpose, or if you have any additional questions on the subject of data protection, you may contact us at the address given in the legal notice at any time.
2. Hosting and content delivery networks (CDN)
This website is hosted by an external service provider (host). The personal data that is collected on this website is stored on the servers of the host. Primarily, this can be IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, contract information, contact data, names, website accesses, and other data that is generated by a website.
The host is used for the purpose of fulfilling the contract with our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 paragraph 1 (b) of the GDPR) and in the interest of a safe, fast, and efficient provision of our online offer by a professional provider (Art. 6 paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR).
Our host will process your data only to the extent necessary to fulfil its performance obligations and to follow our instructions with respect to this data.
Conclusion of a contract for order processing
In order to ensure that the data is processed in compliance with data protection laws, we have concluded a contract for order processing with our host.
3. General and required information
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can have security gaps. It is not possible to protect data completely from third-party access.
Information about the data controller
The data controller for the processing of data on this website is:
Wuxi Cast GmbH
D-52353 Düren, Germany
The data controller is the natural or legal person who alone or together with others decides on the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).
Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are possible only with your express consent. You may withdraw the consent you have already given at any time. All you have to do is send an informal email to us. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
Right to object to data collection in particular situations and direct marketing (Art. 21 of the GDPR)
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR DIRECT MARKETING PURPOSES, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING AT ANY TIME; THIS SHALL ALSO APPLY TO PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS CONNECTED TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL THEN NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT MARKETING PURPOSES (OBJECTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH ART. 21 PARAGRAPH 2 OF THE GDPR).
Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of his or her usual place of residence, place of work, or place of the alleged violation. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically based on your consent, or in fulfilment of a contract, handed over to you or to a third party in a commonly used, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transmission of the data to another data controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the website operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http: //” to “https: //” and by the lock symbol on your URL line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, erasure, and correction
Based on the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, and the purpose of data processing, and if applicable, the right to have this data corrected or erased. For this purpose, or if you have any additional questions on the subject of personal data, you may contact us at the address given in the legal notice at any time.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. To do this, you may contact us at the address given in the legal notice at any time. The right to restriction of processing shall exist in the following cases:
- If you contest the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the verification, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
- If your personal data was/is processed unlawfully, you may request the restriction of the data processing instead of the erasure of the data.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend, or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted instead of being erased.
- If you have lodged an objection in accordance with Art. 21 paragraph 1 of the GDPR, a balance between your interests and ours must be considered. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you shall have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data – apart from its storage – may be processed only with your consent, or to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims, or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.
Objection to marketing emails
We hereby object to the use of contact data published in the required legal notice to send unsolicited advertising and information material. The operators of this website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of marketing information, such as spam emails.
4. Data collection on this website
Our web pages use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that do not harm your device. They are stored on your device either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies). Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them yourself or an automatic solution is implemented by your web browser.
In some cases, cookies can also be stored on your device by third-party companies when you enter our site (third-party cookies). They allow us or you to use certain services of the third-party company (e.g. cookies for payment processing).
Cookies have different functions. Many cookies are technically required because certain website functions would not work without them (such as the shopping cart function or the display of videos). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behaviour or to display advertising.
In the absence of any other legal basis, cookies that are required for electronic communication (necessary cookies) or to provide certain functions you require (functional cookies, such as for the shopping cart function), or to optimise the website (e.g. cookies to measure the web audience), are stored based on Art. 6 paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. If consent to the storage of cookies has been requested, the relevant cookies are stored based solely this consent (Art. 6 paragraph 1 (a) of the GDPR); the consent may be withdrawn at any time.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. Deactivation of cookies can restrict the functionality of this website.
Server log files
The provider of the website automatically collects and stores data in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This data includes:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the service request
- IP address
This data is not combined with other data sources.
This data is collected based on Art. 6 paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of its website – the server log files must be recorded for this purpose.
When you use the contact form to send us enquiries, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
If your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary to carry out precontractual measures, this data is processed based on Art. 6 paragraph 1 (b) of the GDPR. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of enquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 paragraph 1 (a) of the GDPR), if it was requested.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request erasure, withdraw your consent to storage, or until the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – especially retention periods – shall remain unaffected.
