Ethen Rohre – Dedicated to Precision

Thank you for your interest in our tubes. Wherever maximum precision and high-strength durability are required, we feel at home. That is why we manufacture on precision machines we have developed ourselves. For us, therefore, accuracy in diameter only begins after the decimal point. That is why we have been a byword for quality for 65 years. The protection of your privacy in the processing of personal data and the security of all business data is an important concern to us that we consider in our business processes. In this privacy policy, we would like to inform you in detail about the handling of your data.

§ 1 Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (EU-GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6(1)(b) EU-GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c EU-GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) EU-GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 letter f EU-GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

§ 2 Storage time and data deletion

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject.

The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
