Should you transmit to us a third party’s personal data via the previously mentioned services,  you are obliged to maintain all legal data protection requirements, especially those found in  the clauses 5 to 9 and 12 from the GDPR. Otherwise we have no intention to collect this data and reserve the right of initiating legal action against you.


5.   Data storage period

The personal data collected by us is stored as long as necessary for the performance of the purpose for which it was collected. Should this purpose no longer apply, we will delete or anonymize your data, if and to the extent that we have no legitimate retention reasons and obligations (such as for tax regulations) not to do so. In this case, the data undergo only the limited processing needed to fulfill these obligations and, otherwise, only with prior approval, for the assertion, performance or defense of legal claims, to protect the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of an essential public duty of the European Union (EU) or one of its member states. If there is any obligation to preserve records/ data, we delete ore anonymize the data after the reason or obligation for retention has elapsed. 


6.   Purposes for which personal data are processed

We adhere to the principle of the appropriate use of the personal data and process your personal data only for the purposes for which you communicated them to us. The personal data you share with us we use for the following purposes:


·         Processing your inquiry (such as via email)

·         Sending information

·         Customer support and administration

·         Contract performance and execution of precontractual actions

·         Company and/or group management control (such as for budgeting and reporting)

·         Decisions regarding the establishment of an employment relationship and, in this case, regarding the execution and termination of it (for applications by both email and post)

·         Maintenance of legal requirements (such as for the performance of tax regulations and other relevant commercial law and the implementation of compliance management incl. compliance audits)

·         Data privacy and security management and checks

·         Provision of access data for access-limited website areas 


7.   Legal basis for processing

Processing of personal data is based on the GDPR, the German Federal Data Protection Act (German abbrev.: BDSG), as well as additional European and German regulations and acts. 

a.      Legal basis overview

The table below provides a short summary of the available or applicable legal foundations according to the GDPR:


Legal foundation

Description / justification

Prior approval

Clause 6 par. 1 p. 1 a) GDPR

This legal basis applies if you have a priori agreed that we are allowed to process your data for one or several purposes.

Performance of a contract or execution of precontractual actions

Clause 6 par. 1 p. 1 b) GDPR

If we have signed a contract with you (such as concerning the purchase of a die) or you have asked us to execute a precontractual action (such as to create an offer), then this is the legal basis enabling us to process any data necessary to perform the contract or execute the precontractual action.

Performance of a legal obligation

Clause 6 par. 1 p. 1 c) GDPR

This allows us to process your data if this is required for the performance of a legal obligation (such as to meet obligations in terms of taxes or commercial law).


Justified self-interest or justified third-party’s interests

Clause 6 par. 1 p. 1 f) GDPR

Our processing of personal data is also based on our own justified interests or the justified interests of third parties. Justified interests are regarded as all legal, economic and ideal interests that are not legally disallowed. These justified interests can be, for example, data processing to communicate with our customers and contact partners of the customers (as far as not covered by clause 6 par. 1 p. 1 b) GDPR yet)

Decision on the establishment of an employment relationship Clause 88 GDPR

In connection with § 26 par. 1 p. 1 BDSG (Federal Data Protection Act)

We use job applicant’s data for decision-making regarding establishing employment and, if applicable, substantiation, execution and termination of this employment.


b.     Details about the legal basis 

aa.   General use of our website (surfing)

With each visit, for technical reasons, we automatically collect data and information from the computer system of the terminal accessing our website. Here, we process the data types given in article 3 a). This process is carried out with your prior approval of our cookie banner declaration according to clause 6 par. 1 p. 1 a) GDPR as the legal foundation. We store the data processed on our website in so-called log files. Details and specific facts about the cookies used can be taken from article 8. 


bb. Sending of applications

If you send us an application (such as by mail or email), we make use of the data types used by you as aforementioned under article 3 c) to make decisions regarding your employment and establishing, executing and terminating the employment relationship. This is legally based on clause 88 GDPR in connection with § 26 par. 1 p. 1 Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).  

We process data of the types given in article 3 c) only if and insofar as they are suitable to demonstrate your suitability for the job. If this is not given, we do not intend to collect this data. If you send your application via email, please make sure that the data are adequately encoded, since data transfer via email is not protected and, consequently, third persons may also access it. 

If you apply for a job not advertised by AWEBA itself, but another organization in the AWEBA group, then the aforementioned data are processed in a reliable way for the same purposes and on the identical legal basis by the relevant organization. The job advertisement gives the organization in its first line. 

cc.   Contact via email or phone

If you contact us by email or phone, we process the data you entered (such as email, phone number, content of your contact). This is necessary to reply to your request and, if necessary, to perform precontractual actions requested by you (such as sending you a proposal upon request). This processing is legally based on clause 6 par. 1 p. 1 b) and f) of the GDPR. If you act as a contact partner for one of our customers, then our justified interests in processing your data are to fulfill the contract with our customer or to make the materials available to the customer during precontractual actions.

If you contact an organization other than the AWEBA group, then the data aforementioned are processed for the same purposes and on the same legal basis by the relevant organization.

We use both types of cookies. By making use of our websites, which features a cookie banner, you have automatically given permission for us to process your data using cookies as explained below. This kind of processing of data is legally based on clause 6 par. 1 S. 1 a) of the GDPR.

9.   Recipients or categories of personal data recipients

The personal data may be shared with the following recipients:

·       Internal bodies involved in the execution of tasks

·       Contractors (service providers, such as IT service providers)

·       Our external data protection officer

·       Other group organizations and departments (such as the revision or information safety department or the management of the AWEBA /Schuler and/or Andritz group)


10.         Transmission of personal data to third countries

As a rule, we don’t transfer the personal data we collect by means of this website to governments outside the European Union or the European Economic Area (third-party countries). 

However, data collected through our website may be transferred to third-party countries if and to the extent that this transfer is necessary to fulfill a contract, for internal communication, customer support and/or administration or, for example, due to the integration of a service provider or the intervention of a group company in a third country. We commonly involve our data protection officer in such cases. The transfer only occurs if an adequate data privacy level exists or has been generated at the receiving address by means of suitable guarantees (according to clause 45  of the GDPR) or, in exceptional circumstances, where neither an adequacy decision nor suitable guarantees (clause 49 par. 1 p. 2 GDPR) are required. As a general rule, we use EU standard contractual clauses to guarantee an adequate data protection level for the corresponding recipient. The guarantees we use are available from our data protection officer. If and insofar as you are interested in obtaining further information about the guarantees in an individual case, please contact him using the contact data given in article 2.


11.         Rights in relation to data processing

You are entitled to the rights outlined below, from clause 15 to 21 of the GDPR, as well as the right to revoke your prior approval at any reasonable time and the right to bring a complain to the supervisory authority.

The requested information also comprises information about the data’s origin, unless you collect it yourself. You are also entitled to demand a copy of the personal data subject to processing, unless this impinges on the rights and freedoms of other persons in relation to their personal data.


b.     Right to correction (clause 16 GDPR)

You have the right to demand that we process your personal data only to a limited extent. You are, in particular, entitled to demand this in case of one of the following reasons:

You deny the correctness of your data,

Processing of data is illegal, and you reject the deletion of data,

We, in fact, no longer need your data, but you need it to assert, execute or defend legal claims, or

You have revoked permission for processing (see also article 11 g)) and we are still checking whether our justified reasons for processing take precedence over your objection.


e.      Right to information (clause 19 GDPR)

If you have asserted the right to correction, deletion or limitation of processing, then we are obliged to inform all recipients to whom your personal data were disclosed of this correction or deletion of data or the limitation in processing, unless this proves to be impossible or entails unreasonable efforts. You are also entitled to be informed of these recipients.

f.       Right to data transferability (clause 20 GDPR)

You are entitled to obtain your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to send them to another officer, or to let the data be sent by us, insofar as you have made this data available to us through a prior approval, or due to a contract, and the data are processed by means of an automated procedure.
