We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is extremely important to the owner of SchäferRolls GmbH & Co. KG. Using the SchäferRolls GmbH & Co. KG website is basically possible without providing any personal data. However, if an affected person wishes to use our company's special services through our website, personal data processing may be required. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally seek the consent of the data subject.

Processing of personal data, such as the name, address, email address or telephone number of a data subject, is always performed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection provisions applicable to SchäferRolls GmbH & Co. KG. Through this privacy statement, our company seeks to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights under this privacy statement.

As the data processing controller, SchäferRolls GmbH & Co. KG has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, every person concerned is free to submit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.
