We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of SMI Handling Systeme GmbH. A use of the Internet pages of SMI Handling Systeme GmbH is basically possible without any indication of personal data. If a person concerned would like to take up special services of our company via our Internet site, however, a processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such a processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always in accordance with the Data Protection Basic Regulation (VO (EU) 2016/679;DSGVO), the Federal Data Protection Act of 30 July 2017 (BDSG-neu), as well as the Telemedia Act (TMG) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to SMI Handling Systeme GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this data protection declaration informs affected persons about the rights to which they are entitled.
SMI Handling Systeme GmbH, as the person responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can basically have security gaps, so that an absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as by telephone.
The data protection declaration of SMI Handling Systeme GmbH is based on the terminology used by the European guidelines and ordinances when the basic data protection regulation (DS-GVO) was issued. Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:
a) personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, on-line identification, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
(b) data subject
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing is any operation or set of operations, performed with or without the aid of automated means, which is performed upon personal data, such as collection, recording, organisation, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
(d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the performance of work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or change of location of that natural person.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the need for additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
(g) Controller or controller
Controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or national law, provision may be made for the controller or for the specific criteria for his or her designation in accordance with Union or national law.
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
The recipient is any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or national law shall not be considered as recipients.
(j) Third party
Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.
Consent shall mean any freely given and informed unequivocal expression of the data subject's wishes in the specific case, in the form of a statement or any other unequivocal affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

Our website is hosted on servers of 1&1 IONOS SE, Elgendorfer Str. 57 in 56410 Montabaur (Hoster).
The website of SMI Handling Systeme GmbH collects a number of general data and information with every call of the website by a person concerned or an automated system. These general data and information are determined by a pixel or a log file and stored on the server. The following can be recorded
(1) used browser types and versions,
(2) the operating system used by the accessing system,
(3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer),
(4) the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
(5) the date and time of access to the website,
(6) an Internet Protocol (IP) address,
(7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and
(8) other similar data and information which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, SMI Handling Systeme GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. This information is rather required to
(1) to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
(2) to optimise the contents of our website and the advertising for it,
(3) to ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and
(4) to provide law enforcement authorities with information necessary for law enforcement purposes in the event of a cyber attack.
These anonymously collected data and information are therefore statistically evaluated by SMI Handling Systeme GmbH on the one hand and furthermore with the goal of increasing 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. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data given by a person concerned.
Duration of storage by the hoster
The data stored by us/the hoster will be deleted after 8 weeks.
We do not use our own cookies to provide our website.
Due to legal regulations, the website of SMI Handling Systeme GmbH contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our company as well as a direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the data controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted by a data subject to the controller on a voluntary basis are stored for the purposes of processing or for contacting the data subject. Such personal data shall not be disclosed to third parties.
The data is deleted as soon as the purpose of the communication has been achieved.
The controller shall process and store personal data relating to the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European legislator or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject. If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directives and Regulations Giver or any other competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.
The use of Google Maps is for the purpose of an appealing, comfortable design of our website and allows you to find the locations we have indicated on the website more easily. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO. The data transfer to the USA is carried out in accordance with the implementation resolution (EU) 2016/1250 of the EU Commission (EU-US data protection shield).
Your IP address is collected by us to enable the transmission to Google. You are not obliged to provide this data, but it is not possible to use the affected parts of our website without providing this data.
This page uses so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display text and fonts correctly.
To do this, the browser you are using must connect to Google's servers. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our online offers.
This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
If your browser does not support Web Fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.
By clicking on "I accept", you simultaneously consent to the processing of your data in the USA in accordance with Art. 49 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO. The USA is considered by the European Court of Justice to be a country with an inadequate level of data protection according to EU standards. In particular, there is a risk that your data may be processed by US authorities, for control and monitoring purposes, possibly without the possibility of legal recourse. If you click on "Accept technically necessary cookies", the transmission described above will not take place.
This website uses Usercentrics' cookie-content-technology to obtain your consent to the storage of certain cookies on your terminal device and to document this consent in accordance with data protection regulations. The provider of this technology is Usercentrics GmbH, Rosental 4, 80331 Munich, Germany, website: https://usercentrics.com/de/ (hereinafter referred to as "Usercentrics").
When you enter our website, the following personal data is transferred to Usercentrics:
Furthermore, Usercentrics stores a cookie in your browser in order to be able to allocate the consents granted to you or their revocation. The data collected in this way is stored until you request us to delete it, delete the Usercentrics cookie itself or until the purpose for which the data is stored no longer applies. Mandatory legal storage obligations remain unaffected.
The legal basis for the management of your consent to the processing of your personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the legally compliant documentation and verifiability of consent, the management of marketing measures on the basis of the consent granted and the optimization of consent quotas.
We have concluded a contract for order processing with Usercentrics. This is a contract that is required by data protection law and guarantees that Usercentrics processes the personal data of our website visitors only in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the DSGVO.
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were to be injured and his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before the person concerned makes personal data available, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.
(a) Right to confirmation
Every data subject has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether personal data relating to him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.
(b) Right of access
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain at any time and free of charge from the data controller information on personal data relating to him/her and a copy thereof. The European Data Protection Supervisor has also granted the data subject access to the following information:
The data subject shall also have the right to obtain information as to whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.
(c) Right of rectification
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to request the rectification without delay of inaccurate personal data concerning him. The data subject shall also have the right to obtain the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration, having regard to the purposes of the processing.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.
(d) Right of cancellation (right to be forgotten)
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data relating to him/her, if one of the following reasons applies and provided that the processing is not necessary:
If one of the above reasons applies and a data subject wishes to request the deletion of personal data stored by SMI Handling Systeme GmbH, he/she can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of SMI Handling Systeme GmbH will arrange for the deletion request to be complied with immediately.
If the personal data has been made public by SMI Handling Systeme GmbH and our company as the responsible person is obligated to delete the personal data according to article 17 paragraph 1 DS-GVO, SMI Handling Systeme GmbH will take appropriate measures, also of a technical nature, under consideration of the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other persons responsible for the data processing, who process the published personal data, that the person concerned has requested from these other persons responsible for the data processing the deletion of all links to these personal data or of copies or replications of these personal data, as far as the processing is not necessary. The employee of SMI Handling Systeme GmbH will arrange the necessary in individual cases.
e) Right to restriction of processing
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:
If one of the above-mentioned conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored at SMI Handling Systeme GmbH, he or she can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of SMI Handling Systeme GmbH will initiate the restriction of the processing.
(f) Right to data portability
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver, to receive the personal data concerning him/her, which have been provided by the data subject to a controller, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to have this data communicated to another controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data has been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a DPA or Article 9 paragraph 2 letter a DPA or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b DPA and that the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, when exercising their right to data transfer pursuant to Art. 20 Para. 1 DPA, the data subject has the right to request that personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.
To assert the right to data transfer, the person concerned can contact an employee of SMI Handling Systeme GmbH at any time.
g) Right of objection
Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to object at any time, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out pursuant to Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DPA. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
In the event of an objection, SMI Handling Systeme GmbH will no longer process the personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If SMI Handling Systeme GmbH processes personal data in order to carry out direct advertising, the data subject has the right to object to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising at any time. This also applies to profiling, as far as it is related to such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to SMI Handling Systeme GmbH processing for the purpose of direct advertising, SMI Handling Systeme GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right to object, for reasons that arise from his or her special situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her that takes place at SMI Handling Systeme GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes according to Art. 89 Paragraph 1 DS-GVO, unless such processing is necessary to fulfill a task that is in the public interest.
In order to exercise the right of objection, the data subject can directly contact any employee of SMI Handling Systeme GmbH or any other employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his or her right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.
(h) Automated case-by-case decisions including profiling
Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him/her or significantly affects him/her in a similar way, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the controller is subject and such legislation provides for adequate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is made with the explicit consent of the data subject.
If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is made with the express consent of the data subject, SMI Handling Systeme GmbH shall take reasonable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the data controller, to present its own position and to challenge the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may at any time consult a member of the controller's staff.
(i) Right to withdraw consent for data protection
Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver, to revoke his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise his or her right to withdraw consent, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.
The constant development of the Internet makes it necessary to amend our data protection declaration from time to time. We reserve the right to make appropriate changes at any time.
