Privacy policy of Ilgenfritz Mechatronics GmbH

1.    Preamble

We are pleased about your visit on the website of our company. Information protection and in particular data protection is of great importance to our management. In principle, you can use this website without providing any personal data. Should you disclose data to us in connection with the processing described below, we will treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations of the European Union and the Federal Republic of Germany as well as this data protection declaration.

As the data controller, Ilgenfritz Mechatronics GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the complete protection of personal data processed via this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you as the person concerned are free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or mail.


2.    Definitions

Ilgenfritz Mechatronics GmbH’s data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator when the basic data protection regulation (GDPR) was issued. The detailed definitions can be found in Art. 4 GDPR. Essentially, these are the following terms, described here in simplified form:


a)    Personal data:

This is all information available to us as a responsible person to determine you as a natural person. (e.g. name, address, e-mail, telephone number, IP address etc.)


b)    Person concerned:

This is you as a natural person, if we have identified you or can identify you.


c)    Processing:

Processing is any collection, storage, further processing, forwarding, archiving and deletion of data. It is irrelevant whether the process is carried out automatically with the aid of IT systems or whether it is carried out manually (e.g. by letter).


d)    Restriction of processing:

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.


e)    Profiling:

Profiling is any type of automated processing of your data, which consists in using these data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to you. In particular, to analyse or predict aspects relating to your job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, behaviour, whereabouts or change of location.


f)     Pseudonymization:

This is a process to identify your personal data. In the following, only this identifier will be used and without the original key or a “reference database” this pseudonym cannot be resolved (e.g. allocation of a customer number).


g)    Responsible Person:

The person responsible or responsible for processing is Ilgenfritz Mechatronics GmbH with whom you have a contractual relationship. It is crucial that we can decide independently on the processing methods and means.


h)    Contract processor:

A processor is a company that has been commissioned by Ilgenfritz Mechatronics GmbH to assist you in the collection, processing, storage, forwarding or deletion of your data. Usually these are IT service providers, but also waste disposal companies that are commissioned, for example, with the destruction of documents.


i)     Consent:

Consent is any expression of will given by you for a specific individual case. You will be fully informed about what you are consenting to.

6.    Processing operations

In this section we will describe the data processing that is connected with our internet offer or that applies to a general business relationship between you and our company.


The following legal bases serve us for the processing of your data.

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.


If the processing of your data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations required for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same shall apply to such processing operations which are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes the processing of personal data necessary, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company was injured and his name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR.

Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of you outweigh the processing. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator.

(5)  YouTube-Link

We have integrated components of the video platform YouTube on this website to enable you to access our offer. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips and other users to view, rate and comment on them. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television broadcasts as well as music videos, trailers or videos created by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.

YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by us and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on your PC is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the respective YouTube component from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be found at In the course of this technical process, YouTube and Google are informed which specific subpage of our website you are visiting.

If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific page of our website you are visiting by calling up a subpage containing a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to your respective YouTube account.

YouTube and Google receive information via the YouTube component that you have visited our website if you are logged in to YouTube at the same time when you call up our website; this takes place regardless of whether you click on a YouTube video or not. If you do not want this information to be sent to YouTube and Google, you can prevent it from being sent by logging out of your YouTube account before you visit our website.

The privacy policy published by YouTube, which can be found at, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.


(6)  Facebook-Link

We have integrated a link to the Facebook web platform on this website. Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc. 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The person responsible for processing personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland if a person concerned lives outside the USA or Canada.

As soon as you use the Facebook link, your browser is redirected from our website to the Facebook platform. In this context, Facebook remembers from which of our sub-pages you switched to our Facebook fan page. If you are logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook will link your profile to our corporate website and remember this. This will also happen if you are logged into Facebook without leaving our website via a link.

If you do not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook in this way, you can prevent it from being transmitted by logging out of your Facebook account before accessing our website.

A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at As part of this technical process, Facebook obtains information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by you.

Facebook’s published data policy, which is available at, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which settings Facebook offers to protect your privacy. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by you to suppress data transmission to Facebook.


Facebook collects so-called Insights data from every Facebook user; we do not use this data in any way for any analyses or evaluations. Unfortunately, we cannot prevent Facebook from collecting this data. See also for more information.

The Facebook link is used on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in the widest possible visibility in the social media.


(7)  Web analyses Service Mouseflow

We use the web analytics service Mouseflow ApS (Flaesketorvet 68, 1711 Copenhagen, Denmark) on our website. Mouseflow records the mouse movements and click behavior of randomly selected visitors to our website. This protocol is used to better understand and analyze the behavior of our website visitors and to work out improvements for our website.

q)    Contact / Inquiries / Newsletter

In the following we describe the possibilities of contacting the companies and employees of our company.


Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form including the contact data you provided there will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form thus takes place in the first step on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal e-mail notification to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. In further correspondence, there may be a change of legality (e.g. if you request an offer), then your data will be processed in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit b GDPR.

The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected by this.


E-Mail / Phone inquiry

If you send us inquiries by e-mail or telephone, your data from the e-mail or conversation, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data provided in the e-mail or telephone conversation is therefore based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out up to the point of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. In further correspondence, there may be a change in legality (e.g. if it is business correspondence), in which case your data will be processed in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

The data provided by you in the mail or from the telephone conversation will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage or the purpose for which the data was stored ceases to apply (e.g. after your inquiry has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected by this.


r)     Data processing for the fulfilment of contracts

If you have entered into a business relationship with our company, e.g. if you have placed an order with us, the data processing will be carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. All data necessary to initiate, fulfill or complete this order, such as contact data, object data, service providers involved, photo documentation, plans, orders for goods, etc., may be collected and processed by us without separate consent.

Should it be necessary to call in a subcontractor (e.g. other IT service providers, package delivery service) to fulfill the contract with you, we may also pass on your data to this subcontractor. We guarantee that we have committed our subcontractors to the same strict data protection requirements that you can expect from us.

The data related to orders are subject to different retention periods. For example, general business letters must be proven for 6 years and tax law documents for 10 years. We will only pass on your data within our company to the extent necessary, if this is justified by the subject of the order.


7.    Protection / encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.


8.    Profiling

As a responsible company, we avoid automatic decision making or profiling.


9.    Actuality / status

This data protection declaration has the status of March 2021 and is subject to constant updating and adaptation to new legal conditions and technical developments.
