Special notes on data protection

The protection of your privacy when using our websites is very important to us. Accordingly, we use your data in accordance with the legal regulations on data protection. Through this website, we collect various data and information about you. Below we inform you about how we handle your data.

Web server protocols

The web servers we use to host our websites (hereinafter referred to as "web servers") automatically collect information from you when you visit us on the Internet. The web server automatically recognizes certain personal information such as, for example, your IP address; the date and time you are on our site; the pages you visit on our website; the website you were on previously; the browser you use (e.g., Internet Explorer); the operating system you use; and the domain name and address of your Internet service provider. If our website uses cookies (as explained below), the web server also stores this information.

We regularly evaluate these server logs anonymously for statistical purposes (click stream analyses) so that we can determine how our websites are used. This serves exclusively as a basis for optimizing our websites. In principle, it is possible that this data will be used in cooperation with your Internet provider and/or authorities in the event of system abuse in order to determine the originator of this abuse.

Use of cookies, Google Analytics

The use of the website activates the web analytics service "Google Analytics" a service of Google Inc ("Google") integrated. Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by cookies about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these websites, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

Google Web Fonts

This page uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer. You can find more information about Google Web Fonts at and in Google's privacy policy:

Youtube use

Product videos are offered, which are provided via the provider YouTube. Like most websites, however, YouTube also uses cookies to collect information about visitors to its website. YouTube uses these, among other things, to collect video statistics, to prevent fraud and to improve the user experience.

Also, this leads to a connection establishment with the Google DoubleClick network. When you start the video, this could trigger further data processing operations. We have no influence on this. For more information about data protection at YouTube (belongs to the Google Group), please see their privacy policy at:

Use of Google Maps

On the website, the map services of Google Maps are used for certain functions. The software is provided by the Google Group(

The use of Google Maps functions requires your IP address to be stored. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission.

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy location of the places indicated by us on the website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO.

All declarations made by us in connection with data protection apply exclusively to our website. Insofar as we link to other sites, these declarations naturally do not apply. We would therefore ask you, in the event of any ambiguities, to enquire about the data protection provisions on the pages there.

Data processing

All systems in which your personal data is stored are password-protected and only accessible to a specific group of people who need the data to process the purposes authorized by you. In this context, for all transfers to internal and external service providers, we ensure within the framework of the legal provisions that the data is also processed, used and, if necessary, transferred to the aforementioned service providers only in the sense agreed here. Without your consent, it is impossible for us to sell or otherwise market your personal data to third parties.

In the Thelen Group, various companies are responsible for central functions and thereby also process personal data for the companies of the Thelen Group for the following purposes, among others: corporate communications, personnel administration, legal department, accounting. Data may be passed on within the companies of the Thelen Group to the extent necessary for the storage and processing of the data. Data is only passed on to third parties if this is necessary within the framework of the business relationship or if it is legitimized by legal regulations. If external companies are commissioned with a service, they are contractually obligated to do so.

Other for the collection of personal data

We only collect data from you if you provide it to us yourself in order to use one of our offered services. Only the aforementioned web server logs collect data from you without you providing it to us yourself.

Currently, you have the option of subscribing to a newsletter or downloading information material from our pages. Insofar as you wish to make use of these services, we will ask you for personal information, such as your name and postal address. It is your free decision whether you provide this data.

This data transmitted by you will then be processed and/or used exclusively for the performance of the respective service. All data is stored exclusively on our own servers, which are located in the Federal Republic of Germany.

A transfer of your personal data to third parties does not take place.

We must point out that in the event of a request for personal information, we do not offer and cannot guarantee secure transmission of the data. When transmitting data via an unsecured Internet connection, there is always a risk that third parties may intercept the data you enter and use it for their own purposes.

In principle, you have the possibility to order our newsletter and our information material by mail or by phone.

Your rights in connection with the data we collect

If you request us to do so, we will immediately inform you which personal data we have stored about you. If you so request, we will correct any incorrect data. In addition, we will of course take into account any processing restrictions you assert. Finally, we will delete your personal data if you request us to do so and if your request for deletion does not conflict with statutory retention obligations. Finally, we transfer your personal data if the necessary conditions for this (data portability) are met.

Data stored by us will be deleted if they are no longer necessary for their intended purpose and there are no legal retention periods. If deletion cannot be carried out because the data is required for permissible legal purposes, data processing will be restricted. In this case, the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes.

You can object to our use of the data we collect about you at any time.

If you wish to correct, block, delete or obtain information about the personal data stored about you, or if you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, or if you wish to revoke any consent you have given, please contact the following persons:
