Schaltbau Privacy Policy

Thank you for your interest and visit to our website Protection of your private data is important to us.
We would therefore like to inform you below how we process your personal data. The website is operated by the company Schaltbau GmbH.

For our applicants as well as our potential and existing business partners and their employees, we have special data protection information available at the following link:
Data Protection externals

Personal data (sometimes also called person-related data) is data that fundamentally makes it possible to identify your person. It is not important whether it is possible to do so on the basis of a single item of information; this will rarely be the case. However, the more information and data are amalgamated, the more precisely the person can be identified. Personal data comprises particularly the name, address, age, e-mail address and telephone number of a person.

Collection, processing and storage of personal data by Schaltbau GmbH

Schaltbau GmbH only collects, processes and stores your personal data if this is permitted by statutory provisions or you have consented to this.
We receive this data in two ways: either you have informed us of the data or we collect it when you use our services.

Data you inform us of

You can usually use our website without giving us personal information directly. For some services we will ask you for personal information to make the respective service quick and user-friendly or so as to be able to offer the service in the first place. You can find detailed information on all services offered to visitors to this website in this privacy statement.

Data we receive through your use of our services

Some data already arises automatically and for technical reasons when you visit our website. This data is stored temporarily in a so-called log file. The following information is collected in this file without any action on your part and stored until automated deletion:

  • the IP address of the computer from which the inquiry comes
  • date and time of access
  • name and URL of the accessed file
  • website from which access came (referrer URL)
  • browser used and possibly your computer’s operating system and the name of your internet services provider

We use the data named above for the following purposes:

  • to ensure a smooth connection build-up of the website,
  • to ensure easy use of our website,
  • to analyse system security and stability, and
  • for further administrative purposes

The legal basis for processing of this data is Art. 6(1)(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our legitimate interest stems from the purposes for data collection as listed above. Under no circumstances do we use the data we have collected to draw conclusions about your person.
In addition to this, we also use cookies and analytical services when you visit our website. For further information in this regard, please see points 2 and 3 of this privacy statement.

Disclosure of data

We never pass your data on to third parties. We have also implemented appropriate measures and carry out checks regularly to ensure that the data we have collected cannot be viewed or intercepted by third parties from outside.

Data transfer to a third country or an international organisation

If suitable guarantees to establish an adequate level of data protection are applied, it is permissible to transfer data to recipients in states outside the European Union (so-called third countries).
Your data is not transferred to a third country or an international organisation.

Use of cookies


We use cookies on our site. Cookies are small files created automatically by your browser and stored on your terminal (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our site. Cookies do not cause any damage to your terminal and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware.

Information arising in connection with the specific terminal used is placed in the cookie. This, however, does not mean that we obtain direct knowledge of your identity as a result.

Cookies are used on the one hand to help us make use of our website more pleasant for you. For example, we use so-called session cookies to identify that you have already visited certain pages of our website. They are deleted automatically when you leave our website.

We also use temporary cookies that are stored on your terminal for a certain fixed time, again to optimise ease of use. If you visit our website again to make use of our services, it is automatically recognised that you have already visited us and which entries and settings you made so that you do not have to enter them again.

On the other hand we use cookies to collect statistical data on use of our website and to analyse it to optimise our offer for you (see point 5). These cookies make it possible for us to see automatically that you have already visited when you visit our website again. These cookies are deleted automatically after a respective defined time.

The data processed by cookies is necessary for the named purposes of protecting our legitimate interests and those of third parties according to Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR.

You have the possibility in your browser to view the cookies on your computer, to delete cookies or configure the settings so that all or no more cookies at all are stored. Please note that some functions (e.g. login) do not work or do not work correctly when you disable the setting of cookies.

Schaltbau GmbH mostly uses session cookies on its website, which lose their validity when you close your browser.

Use of advertising analytics tools

The tracking measures listed below and used by us are implemented on the basis of Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR. We use the tracking measures to ensure a needs-based design and continuous optimisation of our website.

These interests are to be seen as legitimate in the sense of the aforementioned regulation.

The respective data processing purposes and data categories are to be found in the description of the particular tracking tool.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited ( (Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Irland; hereinafter “Google”) to ensure needs-based design and continuous optimisation of our website.

Under no circumstances is your IP address associated with other data of Google. The IP addresses are anonymised so that association is not possible (IP masking).

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager makes it possible to manage website tags via an interface. The Tag Manager tool, which implements the tags, is itself a cookieless domain and does not collect any personal data. The tool triggers other tags, which could collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivated at domain or cookie level, this deactivation remains intact for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.


To make your visit to our website attractive and to enable use of certain functions, we use the analytical program Kyto (Kyto GmbH, Linienstraße 123, 10115 Berlin,
Kyto makes it possible to measure and evaluate usage on our website. The information we obtain on your visit to our website is sent to Kyto in Berlin and stored there.
Kyto uses the information to evaluate your usage of the website, to create reports on use and for other service relating to website usage and internet evaluation of the website.
Kyto uses services of third companies, e.g. Google Analytics. These companies can store information, e.g. cookies or IP requests your browser sends during your visit to the website. For further information, please see the privacy statement of Google Analytics.
The information is deleted again at the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). You can configure your browser so that you are informed when cookies will be set and decide individually whether to accept them or generally rule out acceptance of cookies for certain cases. If you do not accept cookies, the functionality of our website could be restricted.

If you use our website further, you consent to the above-mentioned processing of the data there by Kyto and its third-party providers within the framework of their privacy statements.

Use of social media plugins

We also offer you extensive personal support and the possibility to stay in touch with us via our pages on the social media portal YouTube on the basis of Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR. YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC with its head office located at 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube is represented by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Irland.

YouTube itself collects personal data, e.g. through your profile there or via so-called social plugins that are implemented in the web pages of third parties.

When you call up a web page on our internet site containing such a plugin, your browser connects directly to the YouTube server. The content of the plugins is sent directly to your browser by it and integrated in the web page. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data that YouTube collects with the help of these plugins. We would therefore like to inform you about the situation as far as we know it:

Through integration of the plugins, YouTube is informed that you have called up the corresponding page on our website. If you are logged into YouTube, it can associate the visit with your account there. If you interact with the plugins, the corresponding information is sent directly to YouTube by your browser and stored there. If you do not have an account at YouTube, it is nevertheless still possible that they can find out your IP address and store it.
It therefore cannot be ruled out that every visitor to our website is registered by YouTube on the basis of their IP address and the URL they called up, even if they do not click the plugins and even if they do not have a user account at the company.
For the purpose and scope of this data collection and further processing and use of the data by YouTube, as well as your rights and setting possibilities to protect your privacy in this regard, please see the privacy policy of:

In individual cases, however, it must be stated more precisely when this will be for the particular case in question. If it is not possible to provide precise details, it is at least necessary to name criteria that enable the user to determine the time of erasure more closely.

Automated decision-making

Automated decision-making on the basis of the personal data collected does not take place.

Data security

During your website visit, we use the widely spread SSL protocol (Secure Socket Layer) in combination with the highest encryption level supported by your browser.

Our security measures are improved continuously in line with technological development.
