Your rights as a data subject

First, we would like to inform you at this point about your rights as a data subject. These rights are standardized in Art. 15 - 22 DS-GVO. This includes:

  • The right to information (Art. 15 DS-GVO),
  • The right to erasure (Art. 17 DS-GVO),
  • The right to rectification (Art. 16 DS-GVO),
  • The right to data portability (Art. 20 DS-GVO),
  • The right to restriction of data processing (Art. 18 DS-GVO),
  • The right to object to data processing (Art. 21 DS-GVO).

To assert these rights, please contact: The same applies if you have questions about data processing in our company or wish to revoke a granted consent. You also have a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority.

Rights of objection

Please note the following in connection with rights of objection:

If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object to this data processing at any time without giving reasons. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to direct advertising.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes. The objection is free of charge and can be made form-free, preferably to:

If we process your data for the protection of legitimate interests, you may object to this processing at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Purposes and legal bases of data processing

When processing your personal data, we comply with the provisions of the DS-GVO and all other applicable provisions of data protection law. Legal bases for data processing result in particular from Art. 6 DS-GVO.

We use your data to initiate business, to fulfill contractual and legal obligations, to implement the contractual relationship, to offer products and services, and to strengthen the customer relationship, which may also include analyses for marketing purposes and direct advertising.

Your consent to data processing may also constitute a permission requirement under data protection law. Before giving your consent, we will inform you about the purpose of the data processing and about your right of revocation.

Disclosure to third parties

We will only pass on your data to third parties within the framework of the statutory provisions or with the corresponding consent. Otherwise, we will not disclose your data to third parties unless we are required to do so by mandatory legal provisions (disclosure to external bodies such as supervisory authorities or law enforcement agencies).

Recipients of the data / categories of recipients

Within our company, we ensure that only those persons receive your data who need it to fulfill contractual and legal obligations.

In certain cases, service providers support our specialist departments in fulfilling their tasks. The necessary contractual framework under data protection law has been concluded with all service providers.

Third country transfer / third country transfer intention

Data is only transferred to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) if this is necessary for the performance of the contractual relationship, is required by law or you have given us your consent to do so.

We do not transfer your personal data to any service provider outside the European Economic Area.

Storage period of data

We store your data as long as it is required for the respective processing purpose. Please note that numerous retention periods require that data continue to be stored. This applies in particular to retention obligations under commercial or tax law (e.g. Commercial Code, Fiscal Code, etc.). If there are no further storage obligations, the data is routinely deleted once the purpose has been achieved.

In addition, we may retain data if you have given us permission to do so or if legal disputes arise and we use evidence within the scope of statutory limitation periods, which can be up to thirty years; the regular limitation period is three years.

Secure transfer of your data

In order to best protect the data we store against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons, we use appropriate technical and organizational security measures. The security levels are continuously reviewed in cooperation with security experts and adapted to new security standards.

The exchange of data to and from our website is always encrypted. We offer HTTPS as the transmission protocol for our website, in each case using the current encryption protocols. In addition, there is the option of using alternative communication channels (e.g., the postal service).

Obligation to provide data

Various personal data are necessary for the establishment, implementation and termination of the debt relationship and the fulfillment of the associated contractual and legal obligations. The same applies to the use of our website and the various functions it provides.

We have summarized details of this for you in the above point. In certain cases, data must also be collected or made available due to legal requirements. Please note that it is not possible to process your request or carry out the underlying contractual relationship without providing this data.

Cookies (Art. 6 Abs. 1 S. 1 lit. a, f DS-GVO, § 25 Abs. 1, 2 TTDSG)

Our website uses so-called cookies. They serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device and that your browser stores (locally). Cookies contain only pseudonymous, usually even anonymous data. Some cookies remain for the duration of a browser session (so-called session cookies), others are stored for a longer period of time (so-called persistent cookies, e.g. Consent settings). The latter are automatically deleted after the respective specified time (usually 6 months). In addition to our own cookies, we also use cookies that are controlled by third-party providers. These use the information contained in the cookies, for example, to display content to you or to record the pages you visit.

Based on our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO), we set technically necessary cookies, which are mandatory for the operation of the website and to ensure its functionality. Furthermore, we use cookies without your consent insofar as their sole purpose is the storage of or access to information stored in the terminal device for the transmission of messages or these are absolutely necessary in order to be able to provide the service expressly requested by you, § 25 para. TTDSG.

Assuming your consent, further cookies are used, by means of which it is possible for us or third parties, for example, to evaluate how our services are used. This allows us to design the content according to user needs. In addition, the cookies enable us to measure the effectiveness of a particular advertisement and to have it placed, for example, depending on the thematic user interests. The legal basis for this is your express consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO, § 25 para. 1 TTDSG).

You can revoke your consent via our Consent banner at any time with effect for the future and change the cookie settings. Please note that changes must be made separately for each end device.

If you maintain accounts with the third-party providers we use and are logged in there, your data may be linked to the respective account. You can avoid such a combination by not granting or revoking your consent to the relevant cookies or by logging out of the respective third-party providers in advance.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. You can also deactivate, restrict or delete cookies on your end device manually via your browser settings or software-supported. If you deactivate the setting of cookies, the full use of our website is not possible or only possible to a limited extent.

Links Social Media

On our website you will find links to the social media services of Meta / Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and Instagram. You can recognize links to the websites of the social media services by the respective company logo. If you follow these links, you will reach the corporate presence of EBERLE Controls GmbH at the respective social media service. When you click on a link to a social media service, a connection to the servers of the social media service is established. This transmits to the servers of the social media service that you have visited our website. In addition, further data is transmitted to the provider of the social media service. These are, for example:

  • Address of the website on which the activated link is located
  • Date and time when the website was called up or the link was activated
  • Information about the browser and operating system used
  • IP address

If you are already logged in to the corresponding social media service at the time the link is activated, the provider of the social media service may be able to determine your user name and possibly even your real name from the transmitted data and assign this information to your personal user account with the social media service. You can exclude this possibility of assignment to your personal user account if you log out of your user account beforehand.

The servers of the social media services are located in the USA and other countries outside the European Union. The data may therefore be processed by the provider of the social media service in countries outside the European Union. Please note that companies in these countries are subject to data protection laws that do not generally protect personal data to the same extent as they do in the member states of the European Union.

Please note that we have no influence on the scope, type and purpose of the data processing by the provider of the social media service. For more information on the use of your data by the social media services integrated on our website, please refer to the privacy policy of the respective social media service.

A free newsletter can be subscribed to on our website. The e-mail address provided during the newsletter registration as well as your name will be used for sending the personalized newsletter.

Here, the principle of data economy and data avoidance is observed, as only the e-mail address and your name (first and last name) are marked as mandatory fields. For technical necessity as well as for legal protection, your IP address is also processed when ordering the newsletter.

For sending newsletters by e-mail, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure.

This is done by sending you a notification e-mail and asking you to confirm that you would like to receive our newsletter at this e-mail address by clicking on a link contained in this e-mail.

Data protection declaration / information on data protection in social media

The company EBERLE Controls GmbH maintains presences in the "social media", presently on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and LinkedIn. Insofar as we have control over the processing of your data, we ensure that the applicable data protection provisions are complied with.

Below you will find the most important information regarding data protection law in relation to our appearances.

Name and address of the person responsible for the company

In addition to EBERLE Controls GmbH, the person responsible for the company presences within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) as well as other data protection regulations is

  • Facebook

(Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland)

  • Instagram

(Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland)

  • LinkedIn

            (LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland)

  • Youtube

            (Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland)

However, you use these platforms and their functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating).

We would also like to point out that your data may be processed outside the European Union.

Purpose and legal basis

We ourselves maintain the fan pages in order to communicate with visitors to these pages and to inform them about our offers in this way.

In addition, we collect data for statistical purposes in order to be able to further develop and optimize the content and to make our offer more attractive. The data required for this purpose (e.g. total number of page views, page activity and data provided by visitors, interactions) are processed by the social networks and made available to us. We have no influence on the generation and presentation.

In addition, your personal data will be processed by the social media providers for market research and advertising purposes. It is possible, for example, that usage profiles are created based on your usage behavior and the resulting interests. This allows, among other things, advertisements to be placed within and outside the platforms that correspond to your interests. Cookies are usually stored on your computer for this purpose. Independently of this, data that is not collected directly on your end devices may also be stored in your usage profiles. The storage and analysis also takes place across devices; this applies in particular, but not exclusively, if you are registered as a member and logged in to the respective platforms.

The processing of your personal data by EBERLE Controls GmbH is based on our legitimate interests in effective information and communication pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f. DS-GVO.

If you are asked for consent to data processing, i.e. if you declare your consent by confirming a button or similar (opt-in), the legal basis for processing is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a., Art. 7 DS-GVO.

Your rights / possibility to object

If you are a member of a social network and do not want the network to collect data about you via our presence and link it to your stored membership data with the respective network, you must

  • log out of the respective network before visiting our fan page,
  • delete the cookies stored on your device and
  • close and restart your browser.

After logging in again, however, you will once more be recognizable to the network as a specific user.

For a detailed description of the respective processing and the opt-out options, please refer to the information linked below:

Overall, you have the following rights regarding the processing of your personal data:

Right to access; Right to rectification; Right to erasure; Right to restriction of processing; Right to object; Right to data portability; Right to complain about unlawful processing of your personal data to the competent data protection authority.

However, since EBERLE Controls GmbH does not have complete access to your personal data, you should contact the providers of the social media directly when asserting your rights, as they each have access to the personal data of their users and can take appropriate measures and provide information.

If you still need help, we will of course try to support you. Please contact us at

Notes on copyright and art copyright

If you want to publish pictures, texts, plans, videos, music, etc. on our website, you should know that you may thereby assign all rights of use to the network, which could ultimately have legal consequences for you if you are not the author or rights holder yourself.

Links to other providers

Our website also contains - clearly recognizable - links to the websites of other companies. As far as links to websites of other providers exist, we have no influence on their contents. Therefore, no guarantee or liability can be assumed for these contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of these pages.

The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations and recognizable infringements at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking. However, a permanent control of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. If we become aware of any infringements, such links will be removed immediately.
