2.1 Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR)

A consent for the processing of personal data, which you have given us, is considered as a legal basis for the mentioned processing. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

2.5 Right of appeal to a regulatory authority

You have the right to object to the processing of your data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation if the legal requirements are met. This also applies to profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 GDPR. If you object to the processing of your data for advertising purposes or wish to revoke your consent, a short message to our data protection officer by e-mail to or by post to TEEPACK Spezialmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG, Düsseldorfer Straße 73, 40667 Meerbusch. Your data will then no longer be processed for the advertising purposes covered by the objection or revocation of consent. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. This does not affect the legality of the processing carried out up to the point of objection or revocation. After your objection to the processing of your personal data for advertising purposes or the revocation of your consent, we are obliged under data protection law in accordance with the requirements of the German data protection regulatory authorities to include the necessary data (name, address, e-mail address) in our internal blocking list and permanently - only for this purpose - store (block) and use for comparison with our future advertising files (Art. 21 para. 3, Art. 17 para. 3 b, Art. 6 para. 1 c GDPR).

Extended storage periods

The specified storage periods may be extended accordingly if a longer statutory or contractual storage period exists in individual cases, in particular if the data are processed for different purposes.

If certain data fields are designated as mandatory fields and/or marked with an asterisk ( * ), the provision of this data is either required by law or contract, or we need this data for the conclusion of the contract, the desired service or the stated purpose. Of course, you also have the right to specify the data in the mandatory fields at your discretion. Failure to provide this information may result in the contract not being fulfilled by us or the desired service not being provided or the stated purpose not being achieved.

If necessary, we process your personal data for the duration of our business relationship, this also implies the initiation and processing of a contract.

In addition, we are subject to various storage and documentation obligations, including those arising from the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the Tax Regulations (AO). The periods for storage and documentation specified there are up to ten years beyond the end of the business relationship or the pre-contractual legal relationship.

Ultimately, the storage period is also judged according to the statutory limitation periods, which, for example, according to §§ 195 et seq. of the German Civil Code (BGB) can generally be three years, but in certain cases also up to thirty years.

We do not use purely automated decision-making procedures in accordance with Article 22 GDPR. Should we use these procedures in individual cases, we will inform you of this separately if this is required by law.

You only have to provide us with the data required for the establishment and execution of a business relationship or for a pre-contractual relationship, as well as data that we are legally obliged to collect. Without this data, we will generally not be able to conclude or execute the contract. This may also refer to data required later within the framework of the business relationship. If we also request data from you, you will be informed of the voluntary nature of the information separately.

We take technical and organisational security precautions to protect your personal data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorised persons and to guarantee the protection of your rights and compliance with the applicable data protection regulations of the EU and the Federal Republic of Germany. The measures taken should guarantee the confidentiality and integrity of your data as well as the availability and resilience of the systems and services when processing your data in the long term. They shall also rapidly restore data availability and access in the event of a physical or technical incident. Our security measures also include encryption of your data. All information that you enter online is technically encrypted and only then transmitted. This means that this information cannot be viewed by unauthorised third parties at any time. Our data processing and security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments. The employees of TEEPACK Spezialmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG are or will be obliged in writing to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the data protection requirements of the GDPR.

The data protection declaration must be adapted from time to time to the actual circumstances and the legal situation. Please check the privacy policy before using our website to keep up to date with any changes or updates.
