DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION (As of 19/06/2018)
We are very pleased at your interest in our company. Data protection is of particular importance to the management of AFT microwave GmbH. It is always possible to use the internet pages of AFT microwave GmbH without inputting any personal data. However, if a data subject would like to take advantage of particular services of our company via our internet pages, then the processing of personal data may be necessary. If it is necessary to process personal data and if there is no legal basis for such processing, then we shall generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data, for example of the name, address, email address or telephone number of a data subject is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in compliance with the relevant national data protection regulations that apply for AFT microwave GmbH. Via this Data Protection Declaration, our company would like to inform the general public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data that we obtain, use and process. In addition, the data subject will be informed about the rights granted to them via this Data Protection Declaration.
AFT microwave GmbH, as the controller responsible for the processing, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure as comprehensive protection as possible for the data that are processed via this internet site. Internet-based data transmission may however demonstrate fundamental security loopholes, such that it is not possible to guarantee absolute protection. As a result, any data subject is free to transmit personal data to us via alternative methods, for example via the telephone.
The controller responsible with regards to the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws that apply in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions regarding data protection is:
Mr. Dieter Müller, Mr. Hannes Fasching
