We will only record this data if you provide us with this data voluntarily, for example by sending an email. Accordingly, you can visit our website without specifying any personal data. We reserve the right to anonymize the data that you have provided, to keep it in aggregated format and, where necessary, to combine it with other data to be able to create anonymous statistics (e.g. on numbers of users).

In case of email contact, the personal data that you transmit is automatically stored. We process your personal data exclusively to respond to your enquiries and in the event of any follow-up questions, or it is stored by us to facilitate future contact with you. We note that data transmission over the Internet, (for example when communicating by email) may highlight security loopholes and thus error-free data protection against access by third parties from our side is not possible.

To safeguard your rights, please contact the department responsible at Vogt Plastic GmbH. Sending a standard email communication to us is sufficient for this purpose.

You are entitled to immediately correct incorrect or complete incomplete personal data.

d) Right to restrict processing

You are entitled to restrict the processing of your personal data, for example if the accuracy of the data is disputed, its processing is unlawful and you refuse for it to be deleted and instead request that its use be restricted as we no longer require it for the purposes of processing but you need it to enforce, exercise or defend legal entitlements or if an objection to processing has been lodged.

e) Right to data portability

You are entitled to have personal data, which you have provided to us, delivered in a structured, accessible and machine-readable format and to transfer it to another responsible party provided processing is automated. A direct transfer of your personal data to another responsible party only takes place if this is technically feasible.

f) Right to object

You are entitled for reasons, which arise out of your specific situation, to lodge an objection at any time against the processing of your personal data.

Furthermore, you can at any time lodge an objection against the processing of your personal data for the purpose of direct advertising.
The legality of the data processing that has taken place up to the time of the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

g) Right in case of automated decision-making including profiling

The person in question is entitled not to be subjected to decision-making based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him/her or significantly affects him/her in a similar way. This means that you are entitled in this respect to challenge the decision and, where applicable, to make a correction.
