We would like to use the information below to provide you “data subject” with an overview of our processing of your personal data and your rights under data protection law. It is generally possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you wish to make use of special services offered by our company through our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent.
Personal data, such as your name, address or email address, is always processed in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the “SUCONI Service GmbH”. The aim of this Privacy Notice is to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process.
As the data controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, as a rule, internet-based data transmissions may have security gaps, and we are unable to guarantee absolute protection. Because of this, you are free to send us personal data by alternative means, for example by telephone or post.
2. Data controller
The data controller, as defined by the GDPR, is:
SUCONI Service GmbH
Stammheimer Straße 10, Haus 5 / 1. OG, 70806 Kornwestheim, Deutschland
Phone: 07154 99954 – 0
Fax: 07154 99954 – 99
Data controller’s representative: Dieter Schmidt
3. Data protection officer
You can reach the data protection officer as follows:
You may contact our data protection officer directly at any time if you have any questions or suggestions regarding data protection.
4. Legal basis for processing
Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR serves as our company’s legal basis for processing operations in 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 you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, processing is based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(b) GDPR. The same applies to those processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of queries regarding our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, processing is based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(c) GDPR.
In rare cases, processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if someone visiting our business were to be injured and their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information needed to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Processing would then be based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(d) GDPR.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR. Processing operations not based on any of the above-mentioned legal bases may be carried out on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or those of a third party, provided the interests and fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not take precedence. We are permitted to engage in such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned in European law. In this respect, the legislature took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
5.1 SSL/TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensurethe security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login details or contact requests that you send to us as the website operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by your browser’s address bar reading “https://” instead of “http://” and the lock symbol in the browser bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you send us cannot be read by third parties.
5.2 Data collection when visiting the website
If you only use our website for informational purposes, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the data your browser sends our server (in what is known as “server log files”). Our website collects a range of general data and information each time you access a website or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server’s log files. The browser
- types and versions used,
- the operating system used by the accessing system,
- the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (called a referrer),
- the sub-pages accessed via an accessing system on our website,
- the date and time the website is accessed,
- an internet protocol address (IP address) and
- the accessing system’s internet service provider may be collected.
No conclusions are drawn about you when using this general data and information. Instead, this information is needed to
- properly deliver our website content,
- to optimise the content of the website as well as to advertise it,
- to ensure the continued functioning of our information technology systems and our website’s technology as well as to
- provide the information necessary for law enforcement authorities to prosecute in the event of a cyber attack.
This collected data and information is therefore statistically analysed and further analysed by us with the aim of increasing data protection and data security within our company to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data being processed by us. The data from the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is based on the purposes listed above for the collection of data.

7. Contents of our website
7.1 Registering as a user
You have the option to register on our website by providing personal data.
The input screen used to register in each case determines what personal data is shared with us. The personal data you enter will be collected and stored exclusively for internal use by us and for our own purposes. We may arrange for data to be shared with one or more data processors, such as a parcel service, which will also use your personal data solely for internal purposes attributable to us.
When you register on our website, the IP address assigned by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and the date and time of registration are also stored. This is done only for the purpose of preventing our services from being misused. If necessary, this data may be used to clarify the situation surrounding any crimes committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for our security. This data will not be disclosed to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the data is used for criminal prosecution.
Your registration, including the voluntary entry of personal data, also allows us to offer you content or services which, due to their nature, may only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data they provided during the registration process at any time or have it completely erased from our database.
We will provide you with information at any time on request as to what personal data is stored about you. We will also rectify or erase delete personal data at your request, unless legal retention obligations to the contrary are in place. Data subjects may contact the data protection officer named in this Privacy Notice and all other employees for this purpose.
Your data is processed in the interests of simple, convenient use of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest as defined by Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR.
7.2 Contact/contact form
Personal data is collected when you contact us (e.g. using our contact form or by email). If you use a contact form to get in touch with us, the contact form you use will indicate the data being collected. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your query or establishing contact and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1(f)f GDPR. If the aim of you contacting us is to conclude a contract, processing is also legally based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(b) GDPR. Your data will be erased once we have finished processing your query. This is the case when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been clarified in a conclusive manner and there are no statutory retention obligations in place that prevent its erasure.
7.3 Application management/job exchange
We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of carrying out the application process. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to us electronically, for example by email or via a web form on the website. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically erased two (2) months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of ours prevent their erasure. Other legitimate interests in this context include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the German Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz [AGG]).
The sole basis for the data processing is our legitimate interest in line with Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR.
8. Web analytics
8.1 Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited (https://www.google.com/about/) (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; hereinafter referred to as “Google”), on our website.

Our activities on social networks
In order to be able to communicate with you on social networks and to inform about our services, we are represented there with our own pages.
We are not the original provider (responsible) of these pages, but only use them within the scope of the possibilities offered to us by the respective providers.
Therefore, as a precautionary measure, we would like to point out that your data may also be processed outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. Use of data protection may therefore have data protection risks for you, as the protection of your rights, e.g. to information, deletion, objection, etc., can be difficult and processing in the social networks can often be carried out directly for advertising purposes or for the analysis of user behaviour by the provider without this being influenced by us. If user profiles are created by the provider, cookies are often used or the usage behavior is directly assigned to your own member profile of the social networks (if you are logged in here).
The processing operations described are carried out in accordance with Art. f GDPR based on our legitimate interest and the legitimate interest of the respective provider in order to communicate with you in a modern manner or to inform you about our services. If you have to give consent to the data processing as a user with the respective providers, the legal basis refers to Art. a GDPR in the sense of Art. 7 GDPR.
Since we do not have access to the data files of the providers, we would like to point out that you best apply your rights (e.g. to information, rectification, deletion, etc.) directly with the respective provider. Further information on the processing of your data on the social networks and the possibility to make use of your right of objection (so-called opt-out), we have subsequently contacted the respective provider of social networks Listed:
