Disclaimer and Privacy Policy


I. Data protection
We are aware of a binding obligation to treat your personal data with the greatest care. We handle your data confidentially and in conformity to the legal data-protection regulations and this Disclaimer and Privacy Policy. We undertake to in no form whatsoever violate your personality rights.

II. Responsible body
WF Maschinenbau und Blechformtechnik GmbH & Co. KG
(WF machinerymachine construction company in Germany)
Schörmelweg 23–27

III. Server-log files
The provider of the site automatically obtains and stores information in so-called server-log files, which your browser sends to us automatically.
The information sent comprises:
• Browser type and browser version
• The operating system used
• The referrer URL
• Hostname of the computer accessing
• Time of server enquiry
These data cannot be assigned to any specific persons. These data are not combined with other data sources. We reserve the right to retrospectively verify these data if plausible suspicions of any illegal use become known to us.

IV. Obtainment of personal data
Our website can generally be used without statement of any personal data. Where personal data (name, address and/or e-mail addresses, for example) are obtained on our site, this is accomplished at all times on a voluntary basis as far as possible. These data will not be forwarded to third-parties without your consent.
We are obliged to point out here that the transmission of data in the Internet (in case of communications using e-mail, for example) may involve security deficits. Total exclusion of access to data by third-parties is not possible.
In cases in which you use our contact form to address enquiries to us, the information on the enquiry form, including the contact data stated there by yourself, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for any subsequent clarification(s). We undertake not to pass on these data without your consent. Revocation of such consent and thus deletion by us of your personal data is possible at any time.
For reasons of security and for the protection of transmission of confidential contents, such as enquiries which you send to us as the operator of this web site, for example, our website uses a “Secure Socket Layer” (SSL) encryption system.

V. Contact form
Our Internet site features a contact form which can be used for the purpose of contacting us electronically. If a user takes advantage of this facility, the data entered in the entry mask is then transmitted to us and stored.
The following data is stored when the message is sent:
• IP address
• Time of transmission
• Title, name, address, company
• Telephone, e-mail address
• Message
In the context of the transmission process, your consent for processing of the data will be obtained and attention will be drawn to this Disclaimer and Privacy Policy.
Alternatively, contact can be made via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the personal data of the user transmitted with the e-mail is stored.
No passing on of data to third-parties takes place in this context. The data is used solely for the processing of the conversation.
The legal basis for processing of the data, assuming consent by the user, is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
The legal basis for the processing of data obtained in the context of the transmission of an e-mail is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Where the e-mail contact has the purpose of creating a contract, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR then provides an additional legal basis for processing.
The processing of personal data from the entry mask is used by ourselves solely for processing of the contact. In the case of contact by e-mail, the necessary legitimate interest also justifies the processing of the data.
The other personal data processed during the transmission process serves to prevent misuse of the contact form and to assure the security of our information-technology (IT) systems.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the attainment of the purpose. In the case of personal data from the input mask of the contact form and the data transmitted by e-mail, this is then the case if the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended once it is apparent from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.
The personal data additionally obtained during the transmission process will be deleted at the latest after the expiry of a period of seven days.

Possibility of objection and elimination
The user is entitled to revoke his or her consent to the processing of his or her personal data at any time. Where the user makes contact with us by e-mail, he or she shall be entitled to revoke his or her consent to the storage of his or her personal data at any time. The conversation shall in such cases not continue.
Revocation with future effect is possible at any time without statement of reasons.
All personal data stored in the course of the contact will in this case be deleted.

Internet sites in some cases use so-called cookies. Cookies cause no harm on your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies are used to make our site more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files which are deposited on your computer and which your browser stores.
The majority of the cookies which we use are so-called “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser again at the next visit.
You can set your browser in such a way that you will be informed concerning the setting of cookies and can then allow the cookies only in individual cases, accept cookies only for certain cases and generally exclude cookies and also activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. The deactivation of cookies can result in a loss of some of the functionality of this website.

Google Analytics
This website uses functions of the Google Analytics web-analysis service. The provider here is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files which are stored on your computer and permit analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie concerning the use of the website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is then saved.

Meta Pixel
We use the visitor action pixel from Meta on our website. We have implemented code on our website to do this. The Meta Pixel is a snippet of JavaScript code that loads a collection of functions that allow Meta to track your user actions if you have come to our website via Meta advertisements. For example, when you purchase a product on our website, the Meta Pixel is triggered and stores your actions on our website in one or more cookies. These cookies allow Meta to match your user data (customer data such as IP address, user ID) with your Facebook account data. Meta then deletes this data again. The collected data is anonymous and not visible to us and can only be used in the context of ad placements. If you are a Facebook user and are logged in, your visit to our website is automatically assigned to your Facebook user account.

We only want to show our services and products to people who are really interested in them. With the help of meta pixels, our advertising measures can be better tailored to your wishes and interests. In this way, Facebook users (provided they have allowed personalised advertising) see suitable advertising. Meta also uses the data collected for analysis purposes and for its own advertisements.

IP anonymisation
On this website, we have activated the “IP anonymisation” function. Your IP address within the member states of the European Union and in other states signatory to the Agreement on the European Economic Area will therefore be abbreviated by Google prior to transmission to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated 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 activities and to furnish for the website operator further services associated with use of the website and use of the Internet. The IP address provided by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.
