We appreciate your interest in our company and our products and services. We take the protection of your personal data extremely seriously. We process your data in accordance with the applicable legal regulations relating to the protection of personal data, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the country-specific implementation laws which apply to us. By means of this data protection policy, we are providing you with comprehensive information concerning the processing of your personal data by SATA GmbH & Co. KG and the rights to which you are entitled.

Personal data is information which enables a natural person to be identified. In particular, this includes name, date of birth, address, telephone number, email address and also the IP address.

In addition, you will be informed of your legal rights in connection with the processing of this data.

It is our objective to protect all data which is entrusted to us as well as possible and to fully comply with all legal requirements. Should you wish to provide us with suggestions about how we can further improve the security of the data which has been provided to us, we would kindly request that you send a message to datenschutz(at)sata.com

3. Your rights as a data subject

First, we wish to inform you here of your rights as a data subject. These rights are set out in Articles 15 -22 GDPR. These include the rights of:

  • Information (Article 15 GDPR),
  • Erasure (Article 17 GDPR),
  • Rectification (Article 16 GDPR),
  • Data portability (Article 20 GDPR),
  • Restriction of data processing (Article 18 GDPR),
  • Objection against the data processing (Article 21 GDPR).

In order to claim these rights, or should you have any queries concerning data protection at our company, please contact our data protection officer referred to above. You also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority.

4. Rights of objection 

Please bear the following in mind in connection with rights of objection:

Should we process your personal data for the purpose of direct advertising, you have the right to object to this data processing at any time without the giving of reasons. This also applies to product and service improvement measures, as well as to measures designed to improve the shopping experience, should these be connected to direct advertising.

Should you object to the processing for purposes of direct advertising or for purposes connected to the improvement of our services, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes. The objection can be submitted informally and should be sent to the address stated above.

In case we process your data in order to safeguard legitimate interests, you can object to this processing at any time for reasons connected to your specific situation; this also applies to any profiling based on these provisions.

We will then no longer process your personal data, unless we can prove mandatory protectable reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or unless the purpose of the processing is the assertion, exercising or defence of legal claims.

5. Purpose and legal basis of the data processing

When processing your personal data, the provisions of the GDPR and all other applicable provisions under data protection laws are complied with. The legal basis for the data processing is contained in Article 6 GDPR in particular.

We use your data to negotiate the business relationship, to fulfil contractual and legal obligations, to perform the contractual relationship, to offer products and services, to process queries and to perform any orders and contracts, to carry out administrative work and to strengthen customer relationships, carry out employee and customer satisfaction surveys (which also include analysis for marketing purposes and direct advertising with product and price information) and within the framework of our applicant portal. Where necessary, we will request your agreement. In addition, the data is also used for other purposes with your consent, for example for information by newsletter relating to our products and services.

Your consent to the data processing can also represent a permission under data protection laws. Prior to issuing your consent, we will provide you with clarification concerning the purpose of the data processing and your right of revocation.

Processing of certain categories of processing in accordance with Article 9 Paragraph 1 GDPR will only then take place if this is necessary due to legal regulations and there is no reason to assume that your protectable interests exceed the necessity of the processing.

6. Disclosure to third parties / occasion and scope

We will only disclose your data within the framework of the statutory provisions, in order to fulfil our contractual obligations or if we have received relevant consent. In such a case, we only disclose the data (for example name and address) which is necessary in order for us to fulfil our statutory, legal or contractual obligations or for third parties in order to ensure a seamless process, in particular in order to perform a contract which has been concluded. 

Otherwise, no disclosure to third parties will take place, unless we are obliged to do so due to mandatory legal acts or regulations (disclosure to external bodies such as supervisory or criminal prosecution authorities).

7. Recipients of the data / categories of recipients

Within our company, we ensure that only those persons who require your data in order to fulfil their work duties or the contractual and legal obligations receive it. This also applies to any data exchange with our associated companies, for example in the UK or Canada, as well as to the disclosure of address data of customers who have agreed to contact initiation or the sending of our newsletter to our international contact partners or, for example, within the framework of the performance of the contract.

In many cases, service providers support our technical department in meeting its responsibilities. The necessary data protection contracts have been concluded with all service providers, e.g. in the form of an agreement regarding the processing of the order. Service providers with whom we collaborate include, for example, shipping providers, payment service providers, agencies, credit rating agencies and IT service providers.

8. Transfer to third countries / intended transfer to third countries

A transfer of data to third countries (outside of the European Union and European Economic Area) only takes place if this is necessary to perform the contractual relationship, is mandated by law or if you have issued us with your consent to such. The scope of the information which is disclosed is described in Section 6.

Should the state not guarantee a level of data protection recognised by the EU, compliance with the level of data protection is guaranteed by means of standard EU contractual clauses.

9. Saving duration of the data

We save your data for as long as is necessary for the respective processing purpose. Please bear in mind that several retention period regulations mandate that data must continue to be saved. This concerns retention obligations under commercial law or tax laws in particular (for example the German Commercial Code, Handelsgesetzbuch and the German Tax Code, Abgabenordnung). Should no further retention obligations exist, the data will be routinely deleted once the purpose has been attained.

This means that we may retain data, should you have issued us with your consent to such or if legal disputes arise and we use evidence and proof within the framework of statutory limitation periods.

10. Secure transfer of your data

In order to best protect that data which is saved against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons, we use relevant technical and organisational security measures. The security level is constantly monitored in co-operation with security experts and adjusted to new security standards.

The data exchange from and to our website takes place in encrypted form. We provide HTTPS as a transfer protocol for our website, using the current encryption protocols. In case of the submissions via our applicants’ portal, we provide content encryption. It is only possible for us to de-encrypt this data. It is also possible to use alternative communication channels (for example post).

Obligation to provide the data
Various personal data is necessary in order to enter into, perform and terminate the contractual relationship and to fulfil the associated contractual and legal obligations. The same applies to the use of our website and the various functions provided by it.

We have summarised the details of this in Paragraph 11. In certain cases, data must also be gathered or provided due to statutory provisions. Please bear in mind that it is not possible to process your query or to perform the underlying contractual relationship without the provision of this data. This means that should you not agree to the use of your data in full or in part for reasons of utmost precaution, it may be the case that you cannot use our products and/or services at all or only with restrictions. Any detriments which may arise as a result are accepted by you, should you continue to use our products or services or parts of these.

Categories, sources and origin of the data
The respective context determines which data we process. The content and scope depend on whether you submit an online order, submit a query via our contact form, send us an application or submit a claim as examples.

Please bear in mind that in special processing situations, we may also separately provide information concerning data protection to suitable bodies, for example when uploading application documents or when getting in touch with us.

In relation to the carrying out of the programme, the general terms and conditions of participation in their respectively applicable version apply first. The data protection provisions below shall apply in addition to these in relation to natural persons who take part in the programme (“participants”) and regulate the handling of personal and other data of participants (“participant data”) on the occasion of and within the framework of the programme. In particular, these specify which participant data is gathered, used and processed and when, the purposes for which this takes place, as well as the rights to which the participants are entitled within the course of the processes referred to above.

Gathering and processing of participant data by SATA 

Registration and usage data

When creating a user account in the app, SATA gathers the name, date of birth, mobile and landline number, email address and address of the participant, as well as the name and address of the company for whom the participant works in connection with the collection of premium points and the redemption of premiums (“registration data”). SATA uses the registration data for the purpose of carrying out and managing the programme, in particular for coin registration and the sending of bonuses. 

Alongside the registration data, SATA also gathers additional participant data automatically via the app in connection with its use, without the participant being separately informed of such or needing to actively participate in this process. This gathering includes the date and time of the most recent login, changes to the app user account and the IP address used during the most recent login, and the model and manufacturer name of the respective end device used (“usage data”). SATA uses the usage data in order to enable the app to be used and to improve it, as well as to ensure the security and stability of its IT systems. The IP address of the end device accessing the app will be used in case of an attack against IT systems of SATA or their unauthorised use, as well as for statistical purposes. Following the expiry of a maximum retention period of 6 months, starting at the time of gathering of the usage data, this will be automatically deleted.

Should the participant have issued his or her prior consent, registration and usage data will also be processed and used in order to determine so-called “booster periods” and in order to allocate prizes and make contact in the course of “treasure hunt” competitions. In such a case, “point boosters” will be used in action timeframes defined by SATA, where several points can be accumulated when scanning a coin or immediate prizes can be awarded in the course of a “treasure hunt” competition.

Bonus data and data use for product improvement

Participants can provide further participant data in the app on a voluntary basis and in return for the number of coins shown in the app which concerns the use of SATA products by the participants and/or their companies (for example job of the participant, type, scope and purpose of the use of SATA products hereinafter referred to together as “bonus data”). 

Should the participant have provided his or her prior consent, SATA makes use of registration, usage and bonus data in order to better understand the use of SATA products by the participants and to improve the products of SATA and the Loyalty Programme.

Consent of the participant

As a participant, you have expressly issued us with the following consent.

  • Permission to use data for the purpose of product improvement

Until my revocation of this consent, I agree that SATA may use my personal data provided in the course of participation in the programme to improve the products sold by SATA or the type of products and services offered (including the Loyalty Programme).

  • Permission for email advertising

Until my revocation of this consent, I agree that SATA may use my contact data provided in the course of participation in the programme in order to inform me by email of products, services, special campaigns or additional services as part of the Loyalty Programme. 

  • You can find your consent status in the profile settings of the app.
  • Permission for telephone advertising

Until my revocation of this consent, I agree that SATA may use my contact data provided in the course of participation in the programme to inform me by telephone of special campaigns or additional services as part of the Loyalty Programme, should I have issued consent in my account.

The individual consent status can be accessed in the profile settings of the app.

Should you have issued your consent, your consent as a participant in the SATA Loyalty Programme will be recorded by SATA. This takes place only in order to fulfil the legal obligation incumbent on SATA to make the contents of such consent available to participants for access at all times. 

The legal basis for the processing of this data is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a) GDPR.
