Your Rights as a Data Subject

First, we would like to inform you about your rights as a data subject. These rights are standardized in Articles 15 - 22 of the EU GDPR. This includes:

  • The right to information (Article 15 EU GDPR),
  • The right to erasure (Article 17 EU GDPR),
  • The right to rectification (Article 16 EU GDPR),
  • The right to data portability (Article 20 EU GDPR),
  • The right to restriction of processing (Article 18 EU GDPR),
  • The right to object to the processing (Article 21 EU GDPR).

To exercise these rights, please contact: The same applies if you have any questions about data processing in our company or if you wish to revoke a consent given. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority.


Right to Object

Please note the following regarding your right to object:

If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object to this data processing at any time without giving reasons.
This also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to direct marketing.

If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes. The objection is free of charge and can be made informally, preferably to:

In the event that we process your data to safeguard legitimate interests, you can object to this processing for reasons arising from your particular situation at any time; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We will then no longer process your personal data, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.


Purposes and Legal Bases of Data Processing

When processing your personal data, we comply with the provisions of the EU GDPR and all other applicable data protection regulations. Legal bases for data processing arise in particular from Art. 6 EU GDPR.

We use your data for business initiation, fulfillment of contractual and legal obligations, execution of contractual relationships, offering products and services, as well as strengthening customer relationships, which may also include analyses for marketing purposes and direct advertising.

Your consent to data processing may also constitute a legal permission regulation in data protection law. Before giving consent, we will inform you about the purpose of data processing and your right of revocation.


Disclosure to Third Parties

We will only disclose your data to third parties within the framework of legal provisions or with your corresponding consent. Otherwise, data will not be disclosed to third parties unless we are legally obligated to do so (disclosure to external bodies such as supervisory authorities or law enforcement authorities).


Recipients of Data / Categories of Recipients

Within our company, we ensure that only those persons receive your data who need it to fulfill contractual and legal obligations.

In certain cases, service providers support our departments in fulfilling their tasks. The necessary data protection contracts have been concluded with all service providers.


Transfer to Third Countries / Intention to Transfer to Third Countries

Data transfer to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) only takes place if it is necessary to fulfill the contractual relationship, is legally required, or if you have given us your consent.

We currently do not transfer your personal data to any service provider or group companies outside the European Economic Area.


Storage Duration of Data

We store your data for as long as it is needed for the respective processing purpose. Please note that numerous retention periods require that data continue to be stored. This applies in particular to commercial or tax retention obligations (e.g., Commercial Code, Tax Code, etc.).

If there are no further retention obligations, the data will be routinely deleted after the purpose has been achieved. Additionally, we may retain data if you have given us permission to do so or if legal disputes arise and we use evidence within statutory limitation periods, which can be up to thirty years; the regular limitation period is three years.


Secure Transmission of Your Data

To best protect the data stored with us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorized persons, we use appropriate technical and organizational security measures. The security levels are continuously reviewed in cooperation with security experts and adapted to new security standards.

Data exchange to and from our website takes place in encrypted form. For our website, we offer HTTPS as a transmission protocol, each using the current encryption protocols. In addition, there is the possibility to use alternative communication channels (e.g., postal service).

Our website uses so-called cookies. They serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your end device and saved by your browser (locally). Cookies only contain pseudonymous, often even anonymous data. Some cookies remain for the duration of a browser session (so-called session cookies), others are stored for a longer period of time (so-called persistent cookies, e.g., consent settings). The latter are automatically deleted after the specified time (usually 6 months). In addition to our own cookies, those controlled by third parties are also used. These use the information contained in the cookies to display content to you or to record the pages you have visited.

Due to our legitimate interest (Art. 6 Abs. 1 S. 1 lit. f EU-DS-GVO), we use technically necessary cookies that are essential for the operation of the website and to ensure functionality.

Subject to your consent, additional cookies are used that enable us or third parties to analyze how our services are used. This allows us to tailor the content to user needs. In addition, through cookies, we have the ability to measure the effectiveness of a particular advertisement and to place it based on thematic user interests, for example. The legal basis for this is your express consent (Art. 6 Abs. 1 S. 1 lit. a EU-DS-GVO, § 25 Abs. 1 TTDSG).

You can revoke your consent via our consent banner at any time with effect for the future and change the cookie settings. Please note that changes must be made separately for each end device.

Creation of User Profiles (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a EU-DS-GVO)

Use of Google Analytics

Based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a. EU-DS-GVO, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC (Google).
Google Analytics uses so-called "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. Since this website has activated IP anonymization, 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 before.

In exceptional cases, the full IP address may be transmitted 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; however, we would like to point out that in this case, you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. 

As personal data may be transferred to the USA in exceptional cases, compliance with the level of data protection is ensured by: certification according to the Privacy Shield.

You have the right to object to the processing. Whether the objection is successful is to be determined as part of a balancing of interests.

The processing of the data specified in this section is neither legally nor contractually required. The functionality of the website is not guaranteed without processing.

Social Plugins of Social Networks


YouTube is a video portal operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (hereinafter "YouTube"). In our online services, we have integrated at least one plugin from YouTube. Assuming your consent, your browser establishes a direct connection to YouTube's servers when you access the online service containing a YouTube plugin. This information is transmitted to YouTube by your browser, indicating that your browser has visited the corresponding page of our online services, even if you do not have a YouTube account or are not logged into your account. This information is transmitted by your browser directly to a YouTube server in the USA and stored there.

If you are logged into your YouTube account at the same time, it is also possible to associate the page view with your YouTube account, allowing YouTube to assign your browsing behavior directly to your personal profile.

Please note that in this context, personal data may be processed in a third country, the USA. Compliance with European data protection standards for data transfer and processing in third countries is ensured through appropriate contractual arrangements and guarantees. Data processing or storage in third countries may also be based on your consent (Art. 49 Abs. 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR), in which case you will be separately informed during the collection of your consent about this and the possibility of revocation.

Please note that we have no influence on the scope, nature, and purpose of data processing by the provider of the social media service. Further information on the use of your data by the social media services integrated on our website can be found in the privacy policy of the respective social media service.

Social Media Links

On our website, you will find links to the social media services of Meta/Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Xing. You can recognize links to the internet pages of social media services by the respective company logo. By following these links, you will reach the corporate presence of SCHILLER AUTOMATION GmbH & Co. KG on the respective social media service. Clicking on a link to a social media service establishes a connection to the servers of the social media service. As a result, it is transmitted to the servers of the social media service that you have visited our website. In addition, further data is transmitted to the provider of the social media service. These may include:

  • Address of the website where the activated link is located
  • Date and time of accessing the website or activating the link
  • Information about the browser and operating system used
  • IP address

If you are logged into the respective social media service at the time of activating the link, the provider of the social media service may be able to determine your user name and possibly even your real name from the transmitted data and assign this information to your personal user account with the social media service. You can exclude this possibility of assignment to your personal user account by logging out of your user account beforehand.

The servers of the social media services are located in the USA and other countries outside the European Union. The data may therefore also be processed by the provider of the social media service in countries outside the European Union. Please note that companies in these countries are subject to data protection laws that generally do not protect personal data to the same extent as in the Member States of the European Union.

Please note that we have no influence on the scope, nature, and purpose of data processing by the provider of the social media service. Further information on the use of your data by the social media services integrated on our website can be found in the privacy policy of the respective social media service.


Automated Individual Decision-Making

We do not use purely automated processing processes to make decisions.


Contacting Us via Email (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a, b EU-GDPR)

If you contact us by email, we will process the personal data provided in the email solely for the purpose of processing your request.


Newsletter (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a EU-GDPR)

A free newsletter can be subscribed to on our website. The email address provided during newsletter registration will be used to send the newsletter.

The principle of data economy and data avoidance is observed, as only the email address needs to be provided as a mandatory field. For technical reasons and for legal protection, your IP address will also be processed when ordering the newsletter.

For sending newsletters by email, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that you will only receive advertising by email if you have expressly confirmed that we should activate the newsletter service. This is done by sending you a notification email and asking you to confirm by clicking on a link contained in this email that you wish to receive our newsletter at this email address.

You can of course unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time using the unsubscribe option provided in the newsletter and thus revoke your consent. Furthermore, there is also the possibility to unsubscribe from the newsletter directly via our website at any time.


Advertising Purposes for Existing Customers (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. EU-GDPR)

SCHILLER AUTOMATION GmbH & Co. KG is interested in maintaining the customer relationship with you and providing you with information and offers about our products/services. Therefore, we process your data to send you corresponding information and offers by email.

If you do not wish this, you can object to the use of your personal data for the purpose of direct advertising at any time; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to direct advertising. If you object, we will no longer process your data for this purpose.

The objection can be made free of charge and informally and should preferably be addressed to telephone number +49 7128 386-0, by email to or by post to SCHILLER AUTOMATION GmbH & Co. KG Datenschutzbeauftragter, Pfullinger Straße 58, 72820 Sonnenbühl.


Links to Other Providers

Our website contains - clearly recognizable - links to the internet presences of other companies. As far as links to websites of other providers are available, we have no influence on their content. Therefore, no guarantee or liability can be assumed for these contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the contents of these pages.

The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations and recognizable legal infringements at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking. However, a permanent control of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. If we become aware of any legal infringements, such links will be removed immediately.
