Principles of Data Processing at EMKA Beschlagteile GmbH & Co. KG

You have accessed this page through a link because you wish to gather information on our handling of (your) personal data. To fulfil our duties to furnish information pursuant to Articles 12 et sequentes of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR), we are happy to provide you hereinafter with our data protection information:

Who is responsible for data processing?

The entity responsible within the meaning of data protection law is
EMKA Beschlagteile GmbH & Co. KG
Langenberger Str. 32
42551 Velbert / Germany

Please find further information on our company, on the persons authorised to represent the company and on further possibilities to contact us in the legal notice / disclaimer of our website at:

Which of your data do we process? And for which purposes?

If we have received data from you, we shall only process them in principle for the purposes, for which we have received or collected them.

Data processing for other purposes shall only come into consideration if the respective legal requirements pursuant to Article 6 Subsection 4 of the EU-GDPR are in place. In this event, we shall comply, as a matter of course, with any possible duties to furnish information pursuant to Article 13 Subsection 3 of the EU-GDPR and Article 14 Subsection 4 of the EU-GDPR.

On what legal basis does that take place?

As a basic principle, the legal basis for the processing of personal data – unless other specific legal regulations are in place – is Article 6 of the EU-GDPR. In that respect, the following possibilities in particular come into consideration:

·         Consent (Article 6 Subsection 1 Letter a) of the EU-GDPR)

·         Data processing for the performance of contracts (Article 6 Subsection 1 Letter b) of the EU-GDPR)

·         Data processing on the basis of a weighing / balancing of interests (Article 6 Subsection 1 Letter f) of the EU-GDPR)

·         Data processing for compliance with a legal obligation (Article 6 Subsection 1 Letter c) of the EU-GDPR)

Where personal data are processed on the basis of a declaration of consent provided by you, you are entitled to revoke that consent vis-à-vis our company at any time with effect for the future.

If we process data on the basis of a weighing / balancing of interests, you are entitled, as a person concerned, to object to the processing of personal data in consideration of the requirements under Article 21 of the EU-GDPR.

How long will the data be stored?

We process the data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose. To such extent as statutory storage obligations are in place – e.g. under commercial law or tax law – the respective personal data will be stored over the duration of the storage obligation. Following expiry of the storage obligation, it shall be checked whether processing of the data continues to be necessary. If processing of the data is no longer necessary, the data will be deleted.

As a basic principle, we review towards the end of each calendar year if processing of the data is still necessary. Due to the quantity of data, this review is performed in regards to specific data types or purposes of data processing.

As a matter of course, you are entitled to demand information on your personal data stored by us at any time (see below) and, in the event that there is no need to process the data, to demand deletion or restricted processing of such data.

To which recipients will the data be passed on?

As a basic principle, your personal data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary to implement the contract with you, if a transfer of the data is admissible on the basis of a weighing / balancing of interests within the meaning of Article 6 Subsection 1 Letter f) of the EU-GDPR, if we are under legal obligation to pass on the data or if you have provided your consent in regards to such transfer of the data.

In certain circumstances, EMKA will transmit personal data for the aforementioned purposes to other European EMKA group member companies. However, this shall only take place if required to serve the purposes mentioned above.

EMKA collaborates with sales partners and sales representatives (so-called commissioned data processors). These sales partners and sales representatives shall only become active according to EMKA’s instructions and be under a contractual obligation to comply with the applicable data protection requirements and regulations.

The recipients described above are possibly located in countries outside the European Union (“third countries”), in which the applicable law does not guarantee the same level of data protection as in the European Union. In this event, the EU standard contractual clauses shall be applied to ensure suitable and appropriate guarantees for the protection of personal data. 

Where will the data be processed?

Your personal data shall be processed by us exclusively in the Federal Republic of Germany.

Your rights as a “person concerned”
You have a right to information on the personal data processed by us in regards to you as a person.

In the event of an inquiry for information that is not submitted in writing, we ask you to understand that we may demand evidence from you in such a case, which proves that you are indeed the person you claim to be.

In addition, you shall be entitled to the correction or deletion of data or to the restriction of data processing, provided you hold such a right under the law.

Moreover, you are entitled to raise objections against data processing in the framework of the statutory requirements. The same shall apply to a right of data portability.

In particular, you are entitled to raise objections against the processing of your data in connection with direct advertising pursuant to Article 21 Subsections 1 and 2 of the EU-GDPR if such direct advertising is conducted on the basis of a weighing / balancing of interests.

We have appointed a data protection commissioner at our company. You can reach the data protection commissioner using the following contact data:

Securcon GmbH & Co. KG
Kai Wiesemann
