Privacy statement

Thank you for your interest in our website and in our company Welland & Tuxhorn AG.

Although we carefully check external sites we link to, we cannot be held liable for their content.

It is very important to us that your data is protected when it is collected, processed and used during your visit to our website. Your data is protected according to the applicable legal regulations. The following information describes which data is collected when you visit the website, and what it is used for:

1. Collection and processing of data

We log every access to our website and retrieval of files stored on it. This data is recorded for system-related and statistical purposes. The following data is logged:

  •         Name of file retrieved
  •         Date and time of retrieval
  •         Quantity of data transferred
  •         Notification of successful retrieval
  •         Web browser
  •         Requesting domain

We also log the IP addresses of requesting computers. Any other personal data is only recorded if you provide it voluntarily, for example when making an enquiry or registering.

2. Use and disclosure of personal data

If you have provided us with personal data, we only use it to answer your queries, to fulfil contracts concluded with you and for technical administration. Your personal data will only be forwarded or otherwise transferred to third parties if this is necessary to fulfil the contract – this particularly applies to forwarding of order information to suppliers, if it is required for invoicing purposes or if you have given prior permission. You have the right to withdraw permission, with future effect, at any time.

The stored personal data is deleted if you revoke your permission to store it, if it is no longer needed in order to fulfil the purpose of storing it, or if storing it is not permitted for other legal reasons.

If you have any questions or want to withdraw permission to store or use your personal data, please contact our data protection officer (see below).

3. Right of information

Under § 34 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), as a user you have the right to know which of your personal data Welland & Tuxhorn has stored. If you want to know about data that Welland & Tuxhorn has stored about you, please contact our data protection officer (see below).

Security information:

We take every technical and organisational measure to ensure that your personal data cannot be accessed by third parties. We cannot guarantee full data security when communicating by e-mail, and therefore recommended that you send any confidential information by post.

Google Analytics

So that we can continue improving the service provided by, we collect statistical data about the use of the website. In order to do this, we use the Google Analytics service. This ensures that no linking occurs to log data or user profile data. Google requires us to reproduce the following statement: This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (Google). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files saved on your computer, to help the website analyse how the site is used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to, and stored by, Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties when required to do so by law, or when such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not link your IP address to other data in its possession.

Given the discussion regarding the use of analysis tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the “_anonymizeIP()” extension, meaning that IP addresses are therefore only processed in an abbreviated form in order to exclude the possibility of direct personal identification. In this way the service conforms to data protection requirements.

You may block the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, but please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you are granting your consent to data about you being processed by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above. If you wish to prevent your visits to being analysed by Google Analytics, you are free to do so by changing the settings in your browser to disable cookies and/or the execution of JavaScript. If you have questions about the processing of your personal data or about data privacy in general, please contact our data protection officer. This is also the person you should contact if you wish to make a complaint.

For the purposes of marketing and optimisation, this website uses products and services from WiredMinds AG ( Data is collected, processed and stored, and usage profiles are saved under a pseudonym. Where it is possible and useful, the usage profiles are made completely anonymous. Cookies may be used for this. Cookies are small text files that are saved in the visitor’s web browser and are used for re-identification. The collected data, some of which may be personal, is sent to WiredMinds or collected by WiredMinds directly. WiredMinds may use information left during visits to the site in order to create anonymous usage profiles. The information obtained will not be used to personally identify visitors to this website without the explicit consent of the persons concerned, and it will not be linked to personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. If IP addresses are collected, they are immediately made anonymous by deleting the last block of numbers. Permission to collect, process and store data in future can be withdrawn at any time.
