Data protection statement of Hörmann GmbH


Thank you for your interest in our business. We take data protection seriously.

Essentially you are able to use our website without providing any personal data. Insofar as a person wishes to make use of the services of our business by means of our internet site, it could be necessary for us to process personal data. If any processing of personal data is necessary and if there is no legal foundation for such processing, we will always obtain the consent of the affected person.

The processing of personal data (e.g. name, address, email address or telephone n umber of the affected person) is always done in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection provisions that apply to us.

With the following data protection statement we wish to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data that we collect, use and process. The affected persons are also informed about rights in this data protection statement.  

As the party responsible for the processing we have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data processed by way of our website are protected as completely as possible. Data transfers over the internet can however involve security gaps. No 100% protection can be guaranteed. Thus every affected person may also transfer personal data to us by alternative means such as by telephone.

6. More comprehensive statements on the legal basis of processing


Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves Hörmann GmbH as the legal basis for the processing operations for which consent needs to be obtained for a certain processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract to which the affected person is a contractual party, then the processing rests on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same holds for processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of requests for our services and products. If Hörmann GmbH underlies a legal obligation that requires a processing of personal data, then the processing rests on Art. 6 lit. c GDPR. In rare cases the processing of personal data could be required to protect vital interests of the affected person or another natural person. In this case the processing rests on Art. 6 lit. d GDPR. In addition processing operations can rest on Art. 6 lit. f GDPR. This legal basis covers processing operations that are not comprehended under any of the other above-mentioned legal bases when the processing is necessary to preserve a legitimate interest of Hörmann GmbH or a third-party insofar as the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the affected person do not outweigh this. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were given particular mention by the European legislating body (see Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).



7. Consideration of legitimate interests


If the processing of personal data rests on Article 6 lit. f GDPR, the legitimate interest of Hörmann GmbH is executing and fulfilling our business activity in favor of our employees and shareholders.


8. Transfer of data


We will not transfer your personal data to a third party.
