I. Our approach to data protection

Data protection law is part of our personal rights. Especially in our constantly developing and networked world, the importance of these rights should not be underestimated. For SHZ Sächsische Hebe- & Zurrtechnik GmbH, data protection law in all its forms and requirements is very important, which is why we also take the protection of your data very seriously and always strive to provide an appropriate level of protection on our website provide.

You are free to use our website without providing your personal data. However, if you want to use one of our services via our website, it may be necessary to collect and process your data. If this is the case and there is no legal basis for this processing, we will always obtain your consent for the respective process.

As the controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for personal data processed via this website. Since, despite all technical precautions, absolute protection cannot be fully guaranteed during data transmission, you are free to transmit your personal data in other ways, for example by telephone.

  1. Data protection details

Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for you as a customer and business partner. To ensure this, we would like to explain some of the terms we use that you will come across in this data protection declaration. Terms that require a more detailed explanation of the term and use have their own paragraph (e.g. cookies).

Personal data

Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). A natural person is regarded as identifiable who, directly or indirectly, in particular by means of assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special features that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person can be identified.

Affected person

Affected person is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the person responsible for processing. So when in doubt, you are an affected person.


Processing is any process carried out with or without the help of automated procedures or any such series of processes in connection with personal data. The term processing includes any handling of data, be it the collection, evaluation, storage, transmission or deletion.


Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using this personal data to evaluate, analyze or predict certain personal aspects relating to a natural person.

We do not use profiling on our website to protect your personal data.


Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures that ensure that the personal data cannot be assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Responsible person or person responsible for processing

The person responsible or the person responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data.


Processor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the person responsible.


Recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to which personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not.


A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the person responsible, the processor and the persons who are authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the person responsible or the processor.


Consent is any voluntary, informed and unambiguous declaration of intent given by the person concerned for the specific case in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative action with which the person concerned indicates that they consent to the processing of their personal data is.

Tracking (German: “tracking”)

In the field of online marketing, tracking refers to the logging of the user behavior of a website visitor. With the help of tracking, it is possible to understand which websites a visitor came from, how long the visitor stayed on the website, which pages were called up and which IP address the visitor had. In order to access this data, cookies are used and evaluated with tools such as Google Analytics. The success of marketing campaigns can be read from this and measures for their optimization and adjustments can be derived. With these measures, the website can be made more user-friendly and better tailored to customers.

Range measurement

The main purpose of the range measurement is that the intensity of use, the number of visitors or users of a website and their surfing behavior are statistically determined – on the basis of a uniform standard method. With the help of various tools, website operators can see exactly how many people are reached with a contribution. It is also possible that it can be determined exactly how often a person clicks, for example, on an advertisement, from which websites, advertisements or articles people reach your own website.

The data required for this is collected and processed in accordance with the GDPR and German data protection law. Technical and organizational measures ensure that individual users cannot be identified at any point in time. Data that may be related to a specific, identifiable person will be anonymized as early as possible.

We also need the above information for the permanent functionality of our IT infrastructure and technology of the website. Last but not least, it may happen that we need the information in order to provide law enforcement authorities with the necessary data in the event of law enforcement.

This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by us on the one hand for statistical findings, but also for the optimization of data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us.

  1. Provision of the online offer and web hosting

So that we can provide our website safely and efficiently, we use the services of one or more web hosting providers, from whose servers (or servers managed by them) the online offer can be accessed. For these purposes, we can use infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services as well as security services and technical maintenance services.

The data processed on our website may include information that arises in the context of use and communication. This regularly includes the IP address, which is necessary to display the content of our online offer, and all entries made within our online offer or from websites.

Email sending and hosting

We use web hosting services, which include sending, receiving and storing emails. For this purpose, the addresses of the recipients and senders as well as other information relating to the sending of e-mails (e.g. the providers involved) and the contents of the respective e-mails are processed.

Please note that emails on the Internet are generally not sent in encrypted form. In most cases, e-mails are encrypted while they are being transported, but (if no so-called end-to-end encryption method is used) not on the servers from which they are sent and received. We can therefore not assume any responsibility for the transmission path of the e-mails between the sender and the receipt on our server.

Collection of access data and log files

We collect data every time the server is accessed (so-called server log files). The server log files can include the address and name of the websites and files accessed, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page) and, as a rule, IP Addresses and the requesting provider belong. In short, server log files record all processes that happen on a website.

The server log files are used, among other things, for security by recognizing and defending against attacks or to guarantee the load on the server and its stability.

  • Processed data types: content data (e.g. text input, photographs, videos), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta / communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses).
  • Affected persons: users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services).
  • Legal basis: Legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1, S. 1 lit. f. GDPR).
  1. Deletion and blocking of personal data

We process and store your personal data only for the period necessary to achieve the storage purpose or if this has been provided for by the European directives and regulations or another legislator in laws or regulations to which we are subject. The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is therefore the respective statutory retention period.

If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European directives and regulations or another responsible legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions, provided that they are no longer required for contract fulfillment or contract initiation.

  1. Protection of minors

Consent to the processing of personal data can only be given by an adult. For information society services, a child’s consent is permitted from the age of sixteen in accordance with Art. 8 GDPR.

  1. How we use cookies

Our website is operated through the use of cookies, among other things. Cookies are text files that are placed and saved on your computer system via your internet browser.

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Simply put, cookies are used to give the website a “memory”. For many website operators they are an essential means of offering you as a website visitor a smooth and technically flawless experience.

Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier for the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the websites and servers you visit to differentiate your individual browser from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognized and identified via the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, our website can provide you with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the setting of cookies. A distinction is made between the following types of cookies and functions:

Cookies that differ according to their storage duration

  • Temporary cookies (also: session or session cookies): Temporary cookies are deleted at the latest after you leave an online offer and close your browser.
  • Permanent cookies: Permanent cookies are saved after the browser is closed. These are used, for example, to save your login status or to display content that is often or welcome.

Cookies that differ according to their origin

  • First-party cookies: We set first-party cookies ourselves.
  • Third-party cookies (also: third-party cookies) : Third-party cookies are mainly placed by advertisers (so-called third parties) in order to process user information.

Cookies that differ according to their purpose

  • Necessary (required) cookies: Cookies may be necessary for the operation of a website (e.g. to save logins or other user input or for security reasons).
  • Statistics, marketing and personalization cookies : It can happen that cookies are used as part of the range measurement (web analysis), if your interests or behavior (e.g. viewing certain content, using functions, etc.) on individual websites be saved in a user profile. Such profiles are used to show users, for example, content that corresponds to their potential interests. This process is also known as “tracking”, ie following up the potential interests of users. Insofar as we use such cookies or other “tracking” technologies, we will inform you separately in our data protection declaration or in the context of obtaining consent directly when opening our website (cookie banner).

Storage period : Unless we specifically tell you the storage period for permanent cookies, please allow for a storage period of up to 2 years.

Which cookies do we use?

(1) We use cookies on our site that are necessary for the operation of the site and with which, for example, Your settings for consent to certain services are recorded and saved.

(2) We use Google Ads.

With the Google Ads Conversion offer, we can draw your attention to our company and our offers on external websites. We have the opportunity to determine how successful individual advertising campaigns are. In this way it is possible that you will be shown advertising that is also of interest to you. Our website can be made more interesting and we save advertising costs at the same time.

The advertising is provided by Google via what is known as an ad server. Cookies are used for this in order to be able to measure the success of the website. These include, for example. the information about which advertisements are displayed and which are clicked. For example, Via an advertisement from Google on our website, Google places a cookie on your device, which is usually stored there for 30 days. The cookies are not intended to identify you personally. Instead, for example the unique cookie ID, the number of so-called “AdImpressions” per placement, the last impressions (relevant for post-view conversions) or opt-out information are recorded as analysis values. In this way, Google can recognize your browser.

We ourselves do not process any personal data from you in these advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google with which we can recognize which advertising measure is how effective. It is not possible for us to identify you as a specific person using this data and we do not want it either.

Google Ads establishes a direct connection from your browser to a Google server. We have no influence on the scope and use of the data by Google. As far as we know, Google receives the information that and which part of our website you have accessed or which ad you have clicked on from us. If you are registered with a Google service yourself, Google can assign the visit to your account directly. Otherwise there is a possibility that Google will record and save your IP address.

We also use the Google Ads remarketing function. This enables us to place interest-based ads on other websites that also belong to the Google advertising network. How you use our website is analyzed. Based on this usage behavior, advertisements are then placed on other websites that presumably correspond to your interests. The cookies used for this are used to identify the end device, but not your person.

You can find details on how it works and the data protection information at .

Since a transfer to third countries is possible, so-called standard contractual clauses acc. Art. 46 GDPR completed. Further information can be found at: .

You can prevent tracking yourself by making the appropriate settings in your internet browser. In that case, you will no longer be shown any third-party advertisements. Alternatively, the plug-in offered by Google can also be used, which is also intended to prevent tracking. You can find the plug-in at

Please note that individual functions of our website could then no longer be used to their full extent.

If the cookies are set via our website, the storage period is up to 180 days.

(3) We use YouTube

We have integrated videos from the YouTube platform on our website. The videos themselves are stored on the YouTube platform, but can be played on our website. We pay attention to the so-called “extended data protection mode”. This means that simply using our website does not transfer any data to YouTube. Only when you click on the videos and play them will data be transmitted to YouTube. We have no influence on the data transfer.

If you play a video on our website, YouTube receives the information that you have visited our website and the subpage. This also happens regardless of whether you have a user account with YouTube. If you have a Google account or are logged in there, the data transferred to YouTube can be assigned to your account and to you as a user. If you do not want this, log out of the relevant accounts before playing the videos on our website. YouTube uses your data for usage profiles and uses them for advertising purposes, for market research, to optimize its own platform and to inform other users about your use of our website. This applies even if you do not have a YouTube user account or are not logged in. You can object to the creation of such profiles against YouTube using the links below.

Further information can be found in YouTube’s data protection information, which can be accessed at . To exercise your right of objection, you can find additional information at . You can manage settings for displaying advertising at

For analysis and marketing purposes, we use products and services that are made available by Visable GmbH ( in cooperation with them. For this purpose, the collection, processing and storage of data is carried out by means of counting pixel technology in order to create at least pseudonymized and, where possible and sensible, completely anonymized usage profiles. The collected data, which may initially still contain personal data, are transmitted to Visable or collected directly by Visable and used there to create the above-mentioned usage profiles. There is no personal identification of visitors to this website, and no other personal data is merged with the user profiles. If IP addresses are identified as personal, they will be deleted immediately. You can object to the forms of processing described here at any time with effect for the future:
