Data Protection Statement


Personal data (hereinafter mostly referred to as "data") are processed by schnaiTEC only in the context of the necessity and for the purpose of providing a functional and user-friendly website. In accordance to Article 4 (1) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, the Basic Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as the 'GDPR'), 'processing' means any operation or series of operations carried out (with or without the aid of automated procedures) on personal data, such as collecting and storing but also restricting and deleting.

With the following privacy policy, we inform you in particular about the nature, scope, purpose, duration and legal basis of the processing of personal data, as far as schnaiTEC decides on the purposes and means of this processing. In addition, we inform you about third-party components that we use on our website for optimisation and usability purposes. Please note that third parties process data in their own responsibility.


Our privacy policy is structured as follows:

I. Information about us as the responsible provider

II. Rights of users and affected persons

III. Information about connection and data processing


I. Responsible provider of this website in terms of data protection

schnaiTEC GmbH

Oberes Buchenfeld 18

II. Rights of users and data subjects

With regard to the data processing described in more detail below, users and data subjects have the right

  • for confirmation whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed (see also Art. 15 GDPR);

  • for correction of incorrect or incomplete data (see also Art. 16 GDPR);

  • for immediate deletion of data concerning him or her (see also Art. 17 GDPR), or, if further processing according to Art. 17 (3) GDPR is required, for restriction of processing in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR;

  • for receipt of the data concerning him or her and information on any transmissions to other providers / controllers (see also Art. 20 GDPR);

  • to file a complaint with the supervisory authority, in case they consider that their data are processed by the provider in breach of the data protection provisions (see also Art. 77 GDPR).


In addition, the provider is obliged to inform any recipients, to whom data has been disclosed, about data correction, deletion or restriction according to Articles 16, 17 (1), and 18 GDPR. However, this obligation does not exist in case the notification is impossible or disproportionate. In either case the user has the right to get information about these recipients.

Likewise, according to Art. 21 GDPR, users and data subjects have the right to object to future processing of their data, provided that the data is processed in accordance with Art. 6 (1) DSGVO. In particular, an objection to data processing for the purpose of direct advertising is permitted.


III. Information about connection and data processing


Connection uses HTTPS by default.


HTTPS encrypts nearly all information sent between a client and a web service. It guarantees three things:

  • Confidentiality. The visitor's connection is encrypted, obscuring URLs, cookies, and other sensitive metadata.

  • Authenticity. The visitor is talking to the "real" website, and not to an impersonator or through a "man-in-the-middle".

  • Integrity. The data sent between the visitor and the website has not been tampered with or modified.

Data processing

Your data that is processed during the use of our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is omitted and the deletion of the data does not conflict with statutory storage obligations.

We use Visitor Analytics to collect statistical data about the visitors of our website. Visitor Analytics is a simple website analytics service which measures the traffic and visitors' general details while browsing our website. By collecting these statistics, we want to make visitors' experience better (e.g. which pages they visit and when, where they are approximately located, where does a user land first or if they are coming from a specific referral). Basically, as a website owner using Visitor Analytics, Visitor Analytics is using cookies to collect data about visitors' device type and screen size, approximate location, browser, OS, page visits, bounce rate, conversions and popular content on the website. All this data is pseudonymized and Visitor Analytics will never use the collected data to identify individual users or to match it with additional information on an individual user.
