Privacy policy



We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is a particularly high priority for the management of Maschinenbau Scholz GmbH & Co. KG. The Maschinenbau Scholz GmbH & Co. KG website can be used without providing any personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special services offered by our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally ask for the agreement of the person concerned.


The processing of personal data, e.g. the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the general data protection regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Maschinenbau Scholz GmbH & Co. KG. By means of this data protection declaration, our company wishes to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. In addition, this data protection declaration is intended to inform affected persons of their legal rights.


As the responsible person for processing, Maschinenbau Scholz GmbH & Co. KG has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every affected person is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as fax or letter.

§ 1 Information on the collection of personal data


(1) Following we provide information about the collection of personal data when using our website. Personal data is all data that can be related to you personally, e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses.


(2) When you contact us by e-mail, the data you provide (your e-mail address, your name and telephone number if applicable) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions. We delete the data arising in this connection after storage is no longer necessary or restrict processing if there are legal obligations to retain data.


(3) If we use commissioned service providers for individual functions of our offer, we will inform you in detail about the respective processes below. In doing so, we will also state the specified criteria for the storage period.

§ 2 Privacy policy for business users


(1) Purposes for which the personal data is processed as well as the legal basis for the processing:


We process data in order to carry out business relations for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 Para. 1 letter b GDPR, e.g. in connection with the execution and administration of orders), to fulfil a legal obligation (Art. 6 Para. 1 letter c GDPR, e.g. commercial and tax law obligations to retain data in accordance with § 257 HGB and § 147 AO), to safeguard the legitimate interests of the person responsible or a third party (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR, e.g. storage of data for a period of time appropriate to acquisition efforts or for the assertion of legal claims and defence in the event of legal disputes), and on the basis of the consent of the persons concerned (Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR, e.g. transfer of data to third parties).


(2) Recipients or categories of recipients of personal data:


Within the company, access to the data is granted to those bodies, which need it to fulfil their contractual and legal obligations. Contract processors employed by us in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR may also process data for these purposes, e.g. IT or telecommunications service providers, cloud providers.


Outside the company, data may be passed on to companies in the logistics sector, service providers, suppliers, subcontractors, authorities, tax consultants, credit institutions, credit agencies, debt collection agencies, lawyers.


(3) Transfer to a third country (outside EU / EEA) or to an international organisation:


The transfer of data to a third country is always based on the EU - Adequacy Decision and the signing of standard data protection clauses, taking into account technical and organisational measures to ensure compliance with the EU's data protection level.


(4) The duration of storage of personal data and the criteria for determination of duration:


The required personal data will be stored for the duration of the existence of warranty and guarantee claims. In addition, the personal data will be stored in accordance with the periods prescribed by law. Corresponding proof and storage obligations result from the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO). The periods of retention and documentation specified there are six and ten years respectively. If the data is no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual or legal obligations, it is regularly deleted.




§ 3 Privacy policy for applicants


(1) the purposes for which the personal data is processed and the legal basis for the processing:


We process the data that you have sent us in connection with your application in order to check your suitability for the position (or other open positions in our companies, if applicable) and to carry out the application procedure.


The legal basis for processing your personal data in this application procedure is primarily § 26 BDSG. This allows the processing of data required in connection with the decision to establish an employment relationship.


Furthermore, we may process personal data about you to the extent that this is necessary to defend against legal claims asserted against us in the application process. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR; the legitimate interest is, for example, a duty of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). Should there be any need for a longer-term storage (e.g. for further vacant positions or positions that become vacant), this will be done on the basis of your consent in writing (pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR).


(2) Recipients or categories of recipients of personal data:


Applicants who send us their applications by e-mail. Please note, however, that e-mails are generally not sent in encrypted form and that the applicants themselves must ensure that they are encrypted. We can therefore accept no responsibility for the transmission path of the application between the sender and the receipt on our server and therefore recommend that you use postal dispatch. Your data will be sighted by the Human Resources department after receipt of your application. Suitable applications will then be forwarded internally to the responsible person for the vacant position in question, if necessary also to the works council. Within the company, access to your data is only granted to those persons who need it for the proper processing of our application procedure


(3) Transmission to a third country (outside EU/EEA) or to an international organisation:


A submission to a third country does not take place and is not intended.


(4) The duration of storage of personal data and the criteria for determination of duration:


If no employment relationship is established following your application, we will retain applicant data for a maximum of six months so that we can answer any follow-up questions about the application and meet our obligations to provide evidence under the Equal Treatment Act. This does not apply if legal provisions prevent deletion (e.g. archiving of travel expense reimbursements in accordance with tax regulations), if further storage is necessary for the purpose of providing evidence or if you have expressly agreed to longer storage. In the event that you have given your consent to further storage of your personal data, we will transfer your data to our pool of applicants. There the data will be deleted after one year.


Should you receive the acceptance of a position within the application procedure, the data will be transferred from the applicant data system to our personnel data system.

§ 6 Use of YouTube videos

The data controller has integrated YouTube components into this website. YouTube is an internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips for free and other users to view, rate and comment them, also free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, but also music videos, trailers or videos created by users themselves can be accessed via the internet portal.


YouTube is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.


Each time the data subject accesses any of the individual pages of this website operated by the data controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject's information technology system is automatically prompted by the relevant YouTube component to download a representation of the relevant YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found on


As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google are informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.


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


YouTube and Google receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged on to YouTube at the same time as he or she visits our website, regardless of whether or not the data subject clicks on a YouTube video. If the data subject does not wish this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her YouTube account before accessing our website.


The data protection provisions published by YouTube, which can be accessed at, provide information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

§ 7 Existence of an automated decision making process

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