General Data Privacy Statement for the Website www.saelzer-security.com
1. Collection of your personal data
This page explains what personal data we will collect from you when you use our website. Personal data are data that concern you personally and by which you can be identified, e.g. your name, your address, your email address and your user behaviour.
We offer, in addition to purely informational use of our website, various services that you can elect to use if you are just interested or provided you have given your consent to data processing (legal basis: Article 6 (1) (a) or Article 6 (1) (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)), for example applications via our e-mail address, contacting us via our contact form for enquiries about products and services of Saelzer GmbH or consent to the setting of cookies.
For this purpose, you must provide further personal data that we will use to provide the relevant service or to contact you and to which the data processing principles set out in this data protection statement will apply. If you do not provide the required information, we may not be able to perform our service.
Our website uses SSL or TLS encryption for the transmission of confidential information. We would like to point out that data transmission using the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) might not be secure and that it is impossible to ensure complete protection of data against access by third parties.
The controller, as defined in Article 4 (7) GDPR, for the processing of personal data is:
35037 Marburg | Deutschland
phone: +49 (0) 6421 / 938 100
Contact details for our data protection officer:
Data Protection Officer SAELZER GmbH
phone: +49 (0) 6421 / 938 100
3. Log-Files => Klärung mit Agentur oder mit IONOS
Each time you visit our website, we automatically collect data and information from your device’s system and store them in server log files. The data are automatically transmitted by your browser when you visit our website. This includes the following data:
- the time of your visit to our website (request to the host provider’s server),
- URL of the website from which you are visiting our website,
- the operating system that you are using,
- the type and version of browser that you are using,
- your computer’s IP address (masked)
Due to the anonymization of IP addresses carried out by our telecommunications provider, it is no longer possible to trace this data back to a natural person.
4. Your rights
You have the following rights regarding your personal data:
a) right to information
b) right to rectification
c) right to erasure (right to be forgotten)
d) right to restriction of processing
e) right to data portability
f) right to object
If we cite our own legitimate interest or the legitimate interest of a third party as the lawful basis for us to process your personal data (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR), you can object under Article 21 GDPR.
Under Article 21 GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time. We will then cease to process your personal data for direct marketing or related profiling purposes. We will also cease to process your personal data for other purposes after an objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (see Article 21 (1) GDPR, the so-called “limited right of objection”). In this case, you must support your objection with grounds that arise out of your particular situation.
In other parts of our website, you also have the option to consent to receiving further promotions from us (by email, telephone or post). If you wish to receive these promotions, the data (e.g. email address, telephone number, or postal address) that we require for the selected form of contact is mandatory. If you register, we will use the double opt-in procedure described above.
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. Of course, you can at any time (even after consenting to promotions) object to our processing of your personal data for promotional purposes. Such revocation will not affect the legality of any data processing that has already taken place. You can inform us of your objection to promotions by sending an email to widerruf@@saelzer-security..com or by written notification to SAELZER GmbH, Dietrich-Bonhoeffer-Str. 1-3, 35037 Marburg, Germany.
You also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about our processing of your personal data.
5. Retention period and restriction of processing of personal data
Unless a more specific retention period is specified in our statements concerning data protection, your personal data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which they were collected. If you only use our website for information purposes, your IP address will be erased from all systems used in connection with operation of our website after seven days at the latest. We will then be unable to identify you from the remaining data.
If you use other services on our website, your data will generally be retained in our systems for user administration purposes. We review these regularly to determine whether data can be erased. If any data are no longer required for the purposes of a customer or interested party relationship, or a conflicting interest outweighs retention, we will erase such data, provided that there are no statutory retention obligations to the contrary.
Your data must also be erased if it is unlawful to process them (e.g. if they are inaccurate and their rectification is impossible). Data will be restricted rather than erased if there are legal or factual obstacles to their erasure (e.g. specific retention requirements).
If you assert a justified request for erasure or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be erased unless we have other legally permissible reasons for retaining your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law); and, in the latter case, deletion will take place after the reasons for retention cease to apply.
Data that you provide to us will not be transferred to third parties without your express consent.
We may store cookies on your end device without your consent if we absolutely need them in order to operate our website. We need your consent for any other types of cookies:
You can at any time, with effect for the future, revoke consent that you have already given. Such an objection will not affect the legality of any data processing that has already taken place before you revoked your consent. To revoke your consent to the setting of cookies beyond the cookies required to operate the website, please delete all cookies in your browser under settings in the corresponding menu (e.g. "Privacy and security" or "Cookies and website permissions" depending on the browser), then close your browser and when you visit our website again, please click on the “Deny” button for the “Cookiebot” service.
7. Right to object to the collection of data in special cases, and to direct advertising (Article 21 GDPR)
If we cite our own legitimate interest or the legitimate interest of a third party as the lawful basis for us to process your personal data (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR), you can object under Article 21 GDPR.
Under Article 21 GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time. We will then cease to process your personal data for direct marketing or related profiling purposes.
We will also cease to process your personal data for other purposes after an objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (see Article 21 (1) GDPR, the so-called “limited right of objection”). In this case, you must support your objection with grounds that arise out of your particular situation.
You may also object, on grounds that arise out of your particular situation, to your personal data being processed pursuant to Article 89 (1) GDPR for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest (Article 21 (6) GDPR).
We use the “Cookiebot” service from UserCentrics A/S, Havnegade 39, 1058 Copenhagen, Denmark (Usercentrics). Thie enables us to manage the consent of visitors to our website for data processing. This processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject in accordance with Article 6 (1) (1) (c) GDPR. The following data is processed for this:
- Your anonymised IP address (the last three digits are set to ‘0’)
- Date and time of consent
- Browser information of the URL from which the consent was given
- An anonymous, random and encoded key with the consent status of the end user as proof of consent
The key and consent status are saved for 12 months in the browser using the “CookieConsent” cookie. This means that your cookie preference is retained for subsequent visits to the site. The key can be used to trace and prove your consent.
If you activate the “Collective consent” service function to give your consent for multiple services, the service also saves a separate, random and unique ID with your consent. Provided that the option “No tracking” is deactivated via the browser settings, this key will be saved in another cookie “CookieConsentBulkTicket” in your browser in an encoded form. Alternatively, you can also give your consent for processing only to individual, selected services. By doing this, the services and cookies from your selected provider are permitted.
The processing of your data by “Cookiebot” takes place within the European Union. You can find more information at: https://www.cookiebot.com/de/privacy-policy/
Please also pay attention to our general statements about delecting and deactivating cookies in Section 6 above.
9.1 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”).1, 2 [MR1] Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP pseudonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.
The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; we would like to point out to you however that in this case you will if applicable not be able to use all functions of this website in full.
You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) being sent to Google and the processing of this data by Google by using the browser plug-in available under the following link. Download and install in: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". As a result, IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form, so that direct personal reference can be foreclosed.
The legal basis for this processing is consent within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR.
9.2 IONOS WebAnalytics => Klärung ob genutzt bzw. ob man das ggf. abschalten kann
This website uses the analysis services of IONOS WebAnalytics (hereinafter: IONOS). The provider is 1&1 IONOS SE, Elgendorfer Strasse 57, D - 56410 Montabaur. As part of the analyses with IONOS, e.g. visitor numbers and behaviour (such as number of page views, duration of a website visit, bounce rates), visitor sources (such as website the visitor comes from), visitor locations and technical data (browser and operating system versions) are analysed. For this purpose, IONOS stores the following data in particular:
a) Referrer (previously visited website)
b) Requested web page or file
c) Browser type and browser version
d) Operating system used
e) Device type used
f) Time of access
g) IP address in pseudonymised form
Due to the pseudonymisation of the IP address, the processed data cannot be traced back to individual persons. Cookies are not stored by IONOS WebAnalytics.
The storage and analysis of the data takes place on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising. If a corresponding consent was requested, the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TTDSG as far as the consent to the storage of cookies or the access to information in the end device of the user (such as device fingerprinting) is comprised within the meaning of the TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time.
Further information on data collection and processing by IONOS WebAnalytics can be found in the IONOS data protection declaration at IONOS SE, Elgendorfer Str. 57, 56410 Montabaur.
10. My Fonts
This site uses MyFonts. These are fonts that are loaded into your browser when you visit our website in order to ensure a uniform typeface when displaying the website.
The provider is Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc., 600 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, Massachusetts 01801, USA.
According to Monotype's data protection declaration, the project identification number of the web font (anonymised) and the URL of the licensed website of Saelzer GmbH, which is linked to our customer number at Monotype, are transmitted. This allows Monotype to identify Saelzer GmbH as the licensee and the licensed web fonts. The requesting IP address of the website visitor is not transmitted or processed in any other way; Only an anonymous IP address 0.0.0.0 is transmitted to Monotype's third-party service provider.
11. Google Maps
On this website we use the offer of Google Maps. This enables us to show you interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to conveniently use the map function.
By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data specified in Section 3 of this data privacy statement will be transmitted. This takes place regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.
Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the data protection declarations of the third-party provider: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd. Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy.
Google Maps is used in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and to make it easier to find the places we have indicated on the website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
12. Social media icons
The button features that social networks provide (such as the Like button on Facebook) generally transfer personal data to the relevant social network as soon as a user visits a website that has an integrated social media button.
That is not the case with us. Our website’s footer does not integrate any plug-in buttons and only displays icons. These will refer you to the corresponding social media platforms via external links as soon as you click on them. You will only actively connect with the respective platforms if you click on them yourself and then register with them. Visiting our website will not cause a transfer of personal data to the social media platforms due to integration of the icons.
13. Our presence on social media (data processing by social networks)
We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. Details of the social networks that we use are set out below.
Social networks such as Facebook and Twitter can generally analyse your user behaviour comprehensively if you visit their websites or websites with integrated social media content (e.g. Like buttons or advertising banners). Visiting our social media presences will trigger numerous processing operations that are relevant to data protection.
If you visit our social media presence while you are logged into your social media account, the operator of the social media portal will be able to trace your visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected in certain circumstances even if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the relevant social media portal. This could happen, for example, via cookies that are stored on your end device or by collecting your IP address.
The operators of the social media portals can use the data collected in this way to create a user profile that records your preferences and interests. Interest-based advertising can then be displayed to you both inside and outside the particular social media presence. If you have an account with the social network, the interest-based advertising may be displayed on all of the devices that you are or were logged into.
Our social media presences are intended to ensure that our presence on the Internet is as comprehensive as possible. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The analysis processes that the social networks perform may be based on different legal grounds, and the operators of the social networks should specify them (e.g. consent within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
Controller, and assertion of rights:
If you visit one of our social media presences (e.g. Facebook), we will be jointly responsible with the operator of the relevant social media platform for the data processing operations that your visit triggers. In principle, you can assert your rights (to information, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, data portability, and objection) against both us and the operator of the relevant social media portal (e.g. against Facebook). Please note that, despite our joint responsibility with the operators of the social media portals, we cannot entirely influence the data processing procedures of the social media portals. The corporate policies of the relevant providers largely determine our own options.
We will erase from our systems any data that we collect directly via our social media presences as soon as you require us to erase them, you revoke your consent to our retaining them, or our purpose for retaining them ceases to apply. Any stored cookies will remain on your end device until you erase them. Mandatory statutory provisions, including retention periods, will continue to apply.
We have no influence over the period for which the operators of the social networks retain your data for their own purposes. Please contact the operators of the social networks directly for details (e.g. in their data protection statements, see below).

14. Enquiries by e-mail, contact form, forwarding to other companies from the Schüco Group or to Schüco partners
Saelzer GmbH is a 100% subsidiary of Schüco International KG. If you send us enquiries about our products and services at the e-mail address provided, your details from the enquiry, including the contact details given there, will first be processed by Saelzer GmbH for the purpose of processing and coordinating your enquiry. The data specified in the e-mail is processed on the basis of our legitimate interest and to initiate a contract (Article 6 (1) (b), Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR). In addition, we may also forward your data to a company from the Schüco Group that is suitable for your specific building project or to a suitable Schüco partner.
The data you provided to us will be processed primarily by Saelzer GmbH and, if applicable, with the company selected by us from the Schüco Group or Schüco partner, until you request us to delete it or if the purpose of processing the data no longer applies.
15. Processing of applicant data
We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g. by email or post). In the following we will inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected as part of the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data takes place in accordance with the applicable data protection law and all other statutory provisions and that your data will be treated as strictly confidential.
If you send us an application, we will process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes from job interviews, etc.) insofar as this is necessary to make a decision on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR (general contract initiation) and - if you have given your consent - Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be passed on to people who are involved in processing your application. If the application is successful, the data you submit will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 BDSG and Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship.
If we are unable to make you a job offer, you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to store the data you have transmitted on the basis of our legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR) for up to 6 months to be kept with us from the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). The data will then be deleted and the physical application documents will be destroyed. The storage serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is apparent that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), it will only be deleted if the purpose for further storage no longer applies.
A longer storage can also take place if you have given your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) DSGVO) or if statutory storage obligations prevent the deletion.
If we do not make you a job offer, it may be possible to include you in our pool of applicants. If you are accepted, all documents and information from the application will be transferred to the applicant pool so that you can be contacted if there are suitable vacancies.
Inclusion in the pool of applicants takes place exclusively on the basis of your express consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). Giving your consent is voluntary and has no connection to the ongoing application process. The person concerned can revoke their consent at any time. In this case, the data will be irrevocably deleted from the applicant pool, provided there are no legal reasons for retention.
The data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted no later than two years after the consent has been given.
16. Legal bases for our data processing
If our processing of your data is needed in order to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject (for example, for the performance of our tax obligations), it will be based on Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR. Our processing of your personal data might in rare cases become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of yourself or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured and we then had to give his or her name, age, health insurance details and other vital information to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In such a case, our processing would be based on Article 6 (1) (d) GDPR.
Finally, our processing operations could be based on Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Processing operations not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are carried out on this basis if the processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of third parties, provided that the interests or the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overriding. We are clearly permitted to carry out such processing operations because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislature. It took the view that a legitimate interest could exist where the data subject is a client of the controller (second sentence of recital 47 GDPR).
If you have consented to the storage of cookies or to access to information in your end device, our data processing will additionally be carried out on the basis of section 25 (1) of the German Telecommunications and Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG). You can revoke your consent at any time.
