Controller in the sense of Art. 4, No. 7 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union:SPINNER GmbH, represented by managing directors Katharina König and Torsten Smyk,
Data protection officer:
Every time that our website is called, our system―i.e. the webserver―automatically captures information on the computer or other device used to access it.
We collect the following information:
It is necessary for our system to temporarily save your IP address in order to deliver our website to your computer. For this to work, the IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The information listed above is stored in log files to ensure that our website works as intended. In addition, these data allow us to improve the website and protect our IT systems (e.g. by detecting malicious attacks).
The legal basis for capturing and temporarily storing these data and log files is a weighing of legitimate interests as per Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (GDPR). Our legitimate interest is to make our website available.
The above-mentioned data are erased as soon as they are no longer required for the purposes for which they were captured. Data captured to enable you to access our website are deleted at the end of the current session.
You may contact us by using our contact form or sending a message to the provided email address. In these cases, we store the personal data that you provide together with your question or request.
These personal data are processed by us solely for the purpose of processing your message.
The legal basis for processing data that you communicate to us when submitting a question or request is a weighing of legitimate interests as per Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR (our legitimate interest is to communicate with external customers and other interested parties), the performance of a precontractual condition, or the fulfillment of a contract as per Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (b) of the GDPR.
The SPINNER Group operates sales branches in various regions worldwide. In the case of requests received from outside the European Union, SPINNER reserves the right to relay your data to a regionally responsible sales branch that is geographically closer to you for processing your request or subsequent orders. Requests received from within the European Union are also processed inside the EU.To the extent that data are relayed to third countries, this is done strictly in accordance with legal requirements, e.g.:
Additional details on relaying data to third countries are provided in the sections on data capture and processing below.
The above-mentioned data are erased as soon as they are no longer required for fulfilling the purpose for which they have been captured. Regarding personal data that are sent to us by email or using the contact form, this is the case when processing of your request has been completed.
You can contact us using our contact form, the provided email address, or our social media pages. In the case of social media, we store the personal data that you send together with your request.
These data are processed exclusively to facilitate the processing your request.
The legal basis for processing the data you send to use with your request is a weighing of legitimate interests as per Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR (our legitimate interest is to communicate with customers and interested parties) or the performance of a precontractual measure and/or fulfillment of a contract with you as per Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (b) of the GDPR.

This website uses both temporary session cookies and permanent cookies. Cookies are small text files that your Internet browser stores locally on your computer. They allow us to recognize you if and when you return to our website. This saves you, for example, the trouble of having to register again and helps us recommend relevant products to you. Cookies are a prerequisite for using the shopping basket in our online shop. If you disable cookies in your browsers, you may not be able to fully take advantage of this website’s functionality.

We capture data on use of this website for statistical purposes, for improving our service, for identifying and diagnosing problems with or misuse of our online offering or telecommunications services and systems, and for marketing purposes. What we actually do with this data is described in greater detail in the following sections.
To the extent that personal data are processed by YouTube, this is done on the basis of a balancing of interests pursuant to Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR (with a legitimate interest in appropriately designing our website to meet needs) and/or on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (a) of the GDPR.
Our website uses social plugins, i.e. plugins of social media of the provider AddToAny.
For better protection of your data when visiting our website, these plugins are not fully integrated. Instead, they are only inserted with the aid of HTML links (a so-called “Shariff solution”). This prevents a connection from being made to the servers of a social media network when you open a page of our website. If you click on one of the buttons, a new window opens in your browser and calls a page of the other service provider’s website, on which you can then (possibly after entering your login data) click the “like” or “share” button, for example.
To the extent that personal data are processed in connection with the use of social plugins, this is done on the basis of a balancing of interests in accordance with Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR (with our legitimate interest in designing our website to meet needs).
For information on the purpose and scope of data capture and further processing and use of captured data by other providers on their websites and your rights and possibilities for safeguarding your privacy by changing settings, please consult the data privacy policies of AddToAny (https://www.addtoany.com/privacy) and the social media providers concerned:
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”: text files that are stored on your device and permit analysis of how you use the website. The information on the use of our services generated by these cookies is typically transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. If IP anonymization is enabled on this website, Google crops the IP addresses of users in countries that belong to the European Union or have signed the EEA Agreements. Only in special cases is a full IP address first sent to a Google server in the USA and then cropped. At our request, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of this website, compile reports on website activity, and provide us with other services related to use of this website and the Internet. The IP address sent by your browser is not mingled with any other data of Google’s. You can prevent cookies from being stored on your device by selecting appropriate browser settings; however, please be advised that if you do this you may not be able to fully take advantage of all of this website’s functions. You can also prevent cookie-generated data pertaining to your use of this website (including your IP address) from being captured and sent to Google for processing by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at this address: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. It sets an opt-out cookie that suppresses capture of your data while visiting our website.
For detailed information on the conditions of use of and protection of data by Google Analytics, please go to https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/terms/us/ or https://policies.google.com/?hl=en&gl=de. On our website, the code “gat._anonymizeIp()” has been added to Google Analytics to ensure anonymized capture of IP addresses. Please note that if you object to the associated tracking, the opt-out cookie may not have the desired effect. One solution is to install an opt-out browser add-on that is available from Google here.
To the extent that personal data are processed in connection with the use of Google Analytics, this is done on the basis of a balancing of interests in accordance with Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR (with our legitimate interest in designing our website to meet needs).
To measure the success of ads that we place with Google (“Google Ads”, formerly called “Google Adwords”), we use Google Conversion Tracking, an analysis service of Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). Google Ads places a “conversion cookie” on your computer if you reach our website via a Google ad. These cookies expire after 30 days and cannot be used to personally identify you. They merely register the fact that you have clicked on one of our ads and consequently been redirected to our website. This tells us the total number of users that have clicked on an ad of ours and been routed to our website. We do not receive any information that could be used to personally identify users.
The personal data that Google captures in this way are also stored and processed on servers in the United States. At this time the EU Commission has not yet passed a resolution according to which the United States generally provides an appropriate level of data protection. However, Google has committed itself to complying with the provisions of the EU-US Privacy Shield ((Anmerkung des Übersetzers: Das EU-US Privacy Shield-Abkommen wurde am 16.7.2020 vom Europäischen Gerichtshof für ungültig erklärt)) published by the U.S. Department of Trade and Industry on the processing of personal data from the member states of the EU. More information on this is available here: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks?hl=en&gl=de . For more information on data protection at Google, see https://policies.google.com/privacy?gl=de&hl=en.
If you do not wish to participate in this tracking process, you can disable it at https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated. You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies of the “googleadservices.com” domain.
The legal basis for processing your data is Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR (a weighing of interests based on our legitimate interest in being able to measure and thus also improve the effectiveness of our online advertising).
Our website uses the Google Tag Manager of Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). The Google Tag Manager lets us centrally insert and manage short sequences of tracking code on our website.
The Google Tag Manager is software that allows us to efficiently manage and update short sections of code called “tags” or “markers” via a user interface without any extra programming work. They are used, for example, to track your activities on our website.
Google Tag Manager does not set any cookies or store any data itself. It is merely a mediating layer that links implemented tags and corresponding scripts. Data are passed to the target systems of implemented tags without being saved.
Google receives anonymized data from us. However, these data only deal with the use of our Tag Manager and do not include any user information saved with the aid the tags. The captured information lets us optimize processes.
The LinkedIn Insight Tag makes it possible to capture data on visits to our website, including the URL, referring URL, IP address, device and browser attributes, a time stamp and page views. These data are encrypted, anonymized within seven days, and the anonymized data subsequently deleted within 90 days. LinkedIn does not share any data on specific users with us; instead, it provides summarized reports on the website target group as a whole and the performance of ads. LinkedIn also performs retargeting for website visitors, allowing us to use this information to display targeted advertising outside our website without identifying specific members. LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes in their account settings.
The LinkedIn Insight Tag is used for the purpose of compiling detailed campaign reports and generating information on visitors to our website to support our advertising and marketing activities. As a customer of LinkedIn’s marketing solution, we deploy the LinkedIn Insight Tag to trace conversions, retargeting visitors to our website, and capture additional information on LinkedIn members who view our ads.
The legal basis for processing these personal data is Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR, and we therefore have a legitimate interest doing so for the above-mentioned purposes.
These data are encrypted, anonymized within seven days, and the anonymized data subsequently deleted within 90 days.
We are obliged to obtain each website visitor’s consent for setting cookies that are not required for technical reasons. To do this, we make use of a so-called cookie consent tool from the company of Usercentrics.
When you visit our website, a cookie banner is displayed in which you may make checkmarks to consent to cookies or cookie-based applications. No cookies requiring consent are set on your device unless you consent to them. So that a consent or revocation of consent can be unambiguously associated with a given user, the following information is recorded and relayed to Usercentrics for storage:
The purpose of this processing is to obtain the user’s effective consent for cookies and cookie-based applications for which such consent is required. We use the tool of Usercentrics GmbH, Senlinger Strasse 7, 80331 Munich, Germany for this.
Usercentrics is active for us as a contract processor, and we have concluded a formal agreement with Usercentrics in which it pledges to treat your data confidentially.
No data of yours are provided to any other recipients or sent to any third countries or international organizations.
To the extent that cookies are set for technically required data processing for operating our website, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interest in designing our website to meet needs. Any processing of your personal data in connection with providing or revoking your consent takes place on the basis of a legal obligation as per Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (c) of the GDPR.
Consent-related data (on both consent and revocation of consent) are stored for three years.
To the extent that personal data are processed in connection with their use by Salesforce, this is done on the basis of a balancing of interests in accordance with Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR (with our legitimate interest in processing requests from interested parties and meeting customers’ needs).
The above-mentioned data are erased as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose for which they were captured. With regard to data captured during the steps preliminary to concluding a contract carrying out precontractual actions, this is the case when the data concerned are no longer needed to fulfill the contract. Also after concluding a contract, it can be necessary to store personal data of the contractual partner in order to comply with contractual or legal obligations (e.g. the requirement to retain documents and information of relevance to taxation). We may store data relevant to invoices for up to 10 years.
To the extent that personal data are processed by SPINNER in connection with the use of Google Maps or relayed to Google, this is done on the basis of a balancing of interests in accordance with Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR (with our legitimate interest in designing our website to meet needs) and/or on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (a) of the GDPR.
Some parts of our company’s facilities are continuously monitored by video cameras. The monitored areas are clearly designated by unambiguous signs.
“Personal data” refers to all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. In order to carry out video surveillance, we process personal data of yours for the purposes named in the following on the indicated legal grounds:
Exercising legitimate interests for the following purposes: to protect property, defend domiciliary rights, ensure plant security, clarifying cases of theft and incidents relevant to security, and use recordings as evidence in judicial and extrajudicial proceedings.
The legal basis for video surveillance is Art. 6, Paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR in conjunction with Section 4, Paragraph 1, Nos. 2 and 3 of the German Federal Data Protection Act.
The monitored areas are clearly designated by unambiguous signs. No automated decision-making with profiling takes place on the basis of your personal data.
We do not provide or grant access to your personal data to any external parties unless this is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which your personal data are processed or we have contracted other parties to perform certain tasks or provide certain services that require access to these personal data or, as a minimum, if the possibility that they may require such access cannot be ruled out. Currently the external recipients of personal data are the following (at the Westerham site):
Bayern Corporate Services GmbH, Arnulfstrasse 50, 80335 Munich, Germany.
In addition, your personal data are communicated to government offices or authorities to the extent that we are required to provide such information by law, by order of a government authority, or by a court decision in order to investigate criminal acts perpetrated against us. In such a case, the legal basis for processing your personal data is the prosecution of criminal acts in the sense of Section 4, Paragraph 3 of the German Federal Data Protection Act.
Your personal data will not be relayed to any recipients in third countries or any international organizations.
Your personal data will only be stored for as long as they are required for purposes for which they were captured. Depending on the site, this can be up to 120 hours. Your personal data will only be kept stored for longer than that if we are required to do so by law, by order of an authority, or by a court decision in order to investigate criminal acts. In such a case, the legal basis for processing your personal data is the prosecution of criminal acts pursuant to Section 4, Paragraph 3 of the German Federal Data Protection Act.
SPINNER GmbH protects your personal data from unauthorized access, use or publication. For this purpose, SPINNER GmbH takes appropriate technical precautions based on the current state of the art in technology. If you need to enter account or credit card information in order to make payment, this is stored exclusively with the contracted PCI-DSS-certified payment service provider and not with us. However, SPINNER GmbH calls your attention to the fact that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) may suffer from security issues. It is therefore not possible to guarantee that all of your personal data will be absolutely safe from unauthorized access by third parties.
Apart from this, we strongly advise you to also protect yourself, for example by keeping your passwords secret.
As a “data subject” in the sense of the GDPR, you have the following rights:
Exercising your rights to erasure, restriction of processing, objection or withdrawal can prevent you from fully taking advantage of our website.
