Purposes and Legal Grounds of Data Processing
inpotron Schaltnetzteile GmbH processes your personal data in consideration of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and all other relevant legislation, i.e. exclusively
- for the fulfilment of contractual obligations (article 6, section 1, paragraph b, GDPR).
Data is processed in order to execute a contract which has been entered into with you, or in order to take the steps required prior to entering into a contract with you after receiving your RFQ.

- Within the context of balancing interests (article 6, section 1, paragraph f, GDPR)
Insofar as necessary, we process your data above and beyond the purpose of contract fulfilment for the safeguarding of our own legitimate interests or those of third parties.
• Advertising, insofar as you have not objected to the use of your data
• Enforcement of legal claims and for the purpose of defence in the case of legal disputes
• Detection and elimination of misuse, as well as prevention and investigation of criminal offenses
• Assurance of IT security and reliable IT operations at inpotron Schaltnetzteile GmbH

- On the basis of your consent (article 6, section 1, paragraph a, GDPR)
Insofar as you have issued consent to us for the processing of your personal data for specific purposes (e.g. use of your e-mail address for sending our newsletter), the lawfulness of such processing is assured on the basis of your consent. Issued consent can be withdrawn at any time. This applies as well to the withdrawal of declarations of consent issued before enactment of the GDPR, i.e. before 25 May 2018. Withdrawal of consent has no effect on the lawfulness of data processing conducted up to the point in time of withdrawal.
- As required for compliance with legal obligations (article 6, section 1, paragraph c, GDPR)
for example keeping documents on file for legally applicable commercial and tax purposes

Personal data which you submit to us, for example as part of a job application, in a request for contact or by e-mail (e.g. name, address or e-mail address), are only processed in order to be able to correspond with you and for the purpose for which you have provided the data to us.

We do not forward your personal data to any third parties unless we are legally required to do so or you have provided us with prior consent.
