We process your personal data exclusively in compliance with the applicable legal provisions, in particular but not exclusively with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and Council of 27 April 2016 and the Data Protection Revision Act of 2018 and the Data Protection Deregulation Act of 2018.

We process the personal data that you make available to us as a user of the website and/or as a prospective customer, customer, supplier, employee or applicant, etc., when you provide such information, for example in the context of an enquiry or registration or for contract negotiations or for the conclusion of a contract or in the context of an employment relationship. Data is processed in the context of responding to enquiries, initiating and performing contracts, as well as for the purposes of marketing, advertising and internal reporting.

The legal bases for data processing include:

  • Consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; 
  • Contract initiation and performance pursuant to Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR; 
  • Compliance with a legal obligation pursuant to Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR; and
  • Processing necessary for the pursuit of legitimate interests, e.g. for marketing, advertising and internal reporting pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. 

We have taken appropriate organisational and technical precautions to protect against unauthorised, unlawful or accidental access, processing, loss, use and manipulation. The measures we have taken are subject to regular review and are continuously updated to reflect the state of the art.

This notwithstanding, we would like to note that, despite all efforts to maintain an appropriately high level of protection, data transmission on the Internet may always be subject to security gaps and complete protection against access by third parties is not feasible. Accordingly, we assume no liability for the disclosure of information due to errors not caused by us.

In the event of a personal data breach, we will – to the extent we are legally required to do so – inform the competent supervisory authority without undue delay with reference to the respective data categories affected by the breach. Should a personal data breach affect your personal data, you will be notified by us without undue delay and, if possible, within 72 hours, if the violation is likely to result in a high risk to your rights and freedoms.

Access data

The website operator or website provider collects data concerning access to the website and saves it as “server log files”. The following data is logged in this way:

  • Website accessed
  • Time of day at the time of access
  • Amount of data sent in bytes
  • Source/reference from which you came to the webpage
  • Browser used
  • User’s operating system
  • IP address used

The data collected in this manner is used solely for statistical evaluations and to improve our website. The data collected in this manner is not combined with any other personal data. The server log files are only reviewed subsequently if there are specific indications of unlawful use.

Handling and use of personal data

Personal data made available or collected in the course of an enquiry, registration, contract negotiations or for the conclusion of a contract or within the scope of an employment relationship, will not be processed for purposes other than those covered by the respective predefined purpose and will be processed in accordance with the applicable data protection legal provisions in all cases. Personal data processed for these purposes will not be kept longer than is necessary to fulfil our contractual or legal obligations and to defend against any liability claims and/or for as long as we have a legitimate and overriding interest in such processing.

“Personal data” refers to any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, i.e. a person who can be identified, in particular by reference to an identifier: Examples include your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

Without the provision of this data, AHT cannot conclude the contract with a prospective customer.
