Maderthoner Maschinenbau - Privacy Policy

Maderthoner Maschinenbau GmbH Privacy Policy

I. Introduction and legal justifications
Data protection has a particularly high priority at Maderthoner Maschinenbau GmbH. It is possible to use this website without attribution. However, if anyone wants to take advantage of a special offer using our website, it may be necessary to process their personal data. As soon as this becomes necessary, we will obtain consent from the data subject.
Our company processes personal data in accordance with legal regulations. In this Privacy Policy, we shall inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of their personal data so long as they are processed by us. Furthermore we shall hereby explain the rights data subjects have.
In principle, we use the technical and organisational options and measures available to us in order to provide the most seamless data protection possible. However, we would like to point out that data transfers over the internet may still have security gaps: therefore, absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. As a result, we would like to alert you to the option of communicating your personal data by other means, for example by phone or by post.
The following points are mainly based on the European General Data Protection Regulation GDPR and in accordance with the legal provisions in Germany. In addition to the points mentioned below, we would like to refer in particular to point (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR:
“… processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.”
We are foregoing a definition which has already been explained in detail elsewhere.

III. Contact information
Our website has facilities which enable you to quickly contact us electronically and communicate with us directly – this includes clickable email addresses and a contact form which automatically generates an encrypted email. In the event of such voluntary and thus desired contact, the personal data submitted by the data subject shall be automatically stored and subsequently used for the purposes of editing or making contact. However, these personal data will not be forwarded to a third party as a result..

IV. Collection of general data and information
Maderthoner Maschinenbau GmbH automatically collects and stores information the website visitor’s browser transmits to us in its server log files. These data are stored exclusively for internal system-related and statistical purposes. The data stored include:
• browser type and version,
• the operating system used by the data subject,
• the referrer URL, i.e. the page visited before ours,
• the “sub-websites” which are controlled via an accessing system on our website,
• hostname of the accessing computer / IP address,
• name of each accessed file,
• the amount of data transmitted,
• notification of successful retrieval,
• requesting domain,
• date and time of the server request,
• the ISP of the accessing system
as well as similar data and information for the purposes of averting danger in the event of an attack on our IT systems.
The data in the server logfiles are stored separately from all personal data. These data will not be merged with other sources of data. In this respect, all these data for Maderthoner Maschinenbau GmbH cannot be assigned to specific people.
We need the logfiles and their analysis in order to be able to maintain the quality and functionality of the website, and in order to provide the necessary information to law enforcement authorities in the event of a cyber-attack by a third party.

V. Using of cookies and javascript-library jquery
Like many other websites, our website uses both cookies and the JavaScript library jQuery. In order to increase the loading speed of our website and thus give visitors a better user experience. we use inter alia the Google CDN (content delivery network) to load this library. It is highly likely that the user of our website has already used jQuery on another Google CDN website. In this case, the browser in question can use copies stored in the cache, meaning it doesn’t need to be downloaded again. If the browser doesn’t have a copy stored in the cache or the browser downloads the file from the Google CDN for another reason, the browser will resend the data subject’s data to Google Inc. (“Google”). CDN is mandatory for the operation of this website!
In addition, we use technically necessary session cookies. The cookies are absolutely necessary for the functionality of the homepage and are automatically deleted after the end of the session.

VI. Google maps integration
We use Google Maps on this website. This allows us to display interactive maps on our website and enables you to use the map function conveniently.
By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you accessed the corresponding subpage on our website. Additionally, the data named under section 3 of this Privacy Policy are transmitted regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether any such user account exists. If you are logged into Google, your data are assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish for Google to allocate these data to your profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or designing its website in line with requirements. Such an evaluation is carried out (even for users not logged in) in particular for the purpose of providing needs-based advertising and to inform other social network users about your activities on our website. You have the right to appeal against the creation of these user profiles – you must contact Google to exercise this right.
More information about the purpose and scope of the data collection and processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the privacy policy of the provider. You’ll also find more information about your rights in this regard there, as well as settings options for protecting your privacy: Google also processes your personal data in the USA and is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield,

VII. Social media

Our website uses functions from the network XING. The provider is XING AG, Dammtorstraße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.
Each time someone accesses one of our pages including functions from XING, a connection is created to the XING servers. No personal data are stored according to our knowledge. In particular, no IP addresses are stored, nor is your user behaviour evaluated.
The XING plug-in is used on the basis of point (f) of Art. 6(1) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the widest possible visibility on social media.
More information on data protection and the XING Share Button can be found in the XING privacy policy:

The processing controller has integrated components from the LinkedIn Corporation into this website. LinkedIn is an internet-based social network which enables users to connect with existing business contacts and to connect with new business contacts. More than 400 million registered people use LinkedIn in more than 200 countries. That means LinkedIn is currently the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most-visited websites in the world.
The operating company of LinkedIn is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. LinkedIn Ireland, Privacy Policy Issues, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland is responsible for data protection issues outside of the USA.
Each time someone accesses a page on our website which has been furnished with a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in), the component causes the browser being used by the data subject to download an appropriate portrayal of the LinkedIn component. More information on the LinkedIn plug-in can be found here: As part of this technical process, LinkedIn receives information about the specific subpages of our website the data subject visits.
If the data subject is logged into LinkedIn at the same time, LinkedIn identifies which specific subpages the data subject visits each time the data subject visits our website and for the duration of their visit. This information is collected by the LinkedIn component and assigned to the respective LinkedIn of the data subject by LinkedIn. If the data subject presses the integrated LinkedIn button on our website, LinkedIn assigns this information to the data subject’s personal LinkedIn user account and stores these personal data.
LinkedIn will always be informed by the LinkedIn component whenever the data subject visits our website if the data subject is logged into LinkedIn at the same time as they access our website; this happens regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the LinkedIn component or not. If the data subject doesn’t want this kind of information to be transmitted to LinkedIn, they can prevent this by logging out of their LinkedIn account before accessing our website.
LinkedIn provides the option of unsubscribing from emails, text messages and targeted advertising, as well as managing advertising settings under LinkedIn also uses partners such as QuantCast, Google Analytics, BlueKai, DoubleClick, Nielsen, ComScore, Eloqua and Lotame, which may place cookies. Such cookies can be rejected here: The applicable LinkedIn data protection provisions can be accessed at: The LinkedIn cookie guidelines can be accessed here:

The processing controller has integrated components from YouTube into this website. YouTube is an online video portal that enables video publishers to post videos for free, and allows other users to view, rate and comment on them. YouTube allows the publication of all kinds of videos, which is why full films and TV shows, music videos, trailers and videos made by the users themselves can all be accessed via the portal.
The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Each time someone accesses one of the individual pages on this website which is operated by the processing controller and into which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the respective YouTube component automatically causes a rendering of the relevant YouTube to be downloaded from YouTube into the web browser on the data subject’s computer. More information on YouTube can be found here: As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google are informed which specific subpages of our website are visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube identifies which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject when they access a subpage containing a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the data subject’s YouTube account.
YouTube and Google are always informed via the YouTube component when the data subject visits our website if the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time as they access our website; this happens regardless of whether or not the data subject clicks on the YouTube video. If the data subject doesn’t want this kind of information transmitted to YouTube and Google, they can prevent this by logging out of their YouTube account before accessing our website
The data protection provisions published by YouTube, accessible at, explain how personal data are collected, processed and used by YouTube and Google.
