Privacy policy


Schienle Magnettechnik + Elektronik GmbH takes the protection of your personal data extremely seriously, and strictly complies with the provisions of the data protection laws. We collect, store and use the personal data you supply us in accordance with the provisions of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, Germany’s Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and Germany’s Teleservices Act (TMG).
The following explanation informs you how we guarantee this protection, and which types of data we collect for what purposes.

Collection, processing and use of your data and personal data

As a rule, you can visit our website without having to provide us with personal data.
Schienle Magnettechnik + Elektronik GmbH automatically collects and stores information transferred to us by your browser in our server log files.

This relates to:

  • The date and time of the server request
  • The page(s) visited
  • Access successful, or page not found
  • Browser type/version
  • Operating system/version used
  • Referrer URL (the page you previously visited)
  • IP address

This data is exclusively used for improving our products and services, as well as for establishing the cause of errors. It does not enable us to identify you personally.

We do not merge information from the server log files with other data sources. The server log files are deleted as soon as they have been statistically analysed. We only collect, process and use personal data if you provide this to us voluntarily, for example by using our contact form, or for an online job application.

The only time we process your data without your express permission is to process the enquiry you contacted us about. Once your matter has been dealt with in its entirety, the data is blocked from further use, and is deleted upon expiry of the retention periods specified in tax and commercial law, unless you expressly consent to further use of your data.

Your personal data is not passed to third parties without your permission. However, in individual cases, we are obliged to provide relevant authorities with your data, insofar as they request this data in order to fulfil legal requirements (for example law enforcement).

On no account will your personal data be transferred to third parties, either free of charge or for payment.

Cookies / Tracking


This website uses the open source analysis tool PIWIK (, in order to create statistical analyses of how our website is used. This enables us to optimise our website for you, and to make it more user-friendly. PIWIK stores the collected data (including among other things date/time, page(s) visited, the user’s browser and operating system) in a database. The analyses created by PIWIK are completely anonymised, and cannot be used to identify individual people. IP addresses are made unreadable before they enter the database, in order to comply with legal regulations. The stored data is not linked to other data sources, and it is not transferred to third parties.


Our website uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your browser, and they do not contain viruses. Cookies help us make our web presence more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and stored in your browser.

The majority of the cookies we use are so-called ‘session cookies’. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise you on your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed when cookies are set, and either only allow them on a case-by-basis, accept them for certain purposes or generally block them, as well as set your browser to automatically delete cookies when you close it. However, if you deactivate cookies, this website may not work in its entirety.

Cookies required for the implementation of electronic communication processes or for providing certain features you require (for example: shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Article 6, paragraph 1, section f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies so that the services can be provided in optimum manner and without technical errors. Insofar as other cookies are stored (such as cookies used for analysing your surfing behaviour), these are dealt with separately elsewhere in this privacy policy.


For marketing and optimisation purposes, our website uses products and services provided by WiredMinds AG ( As part of this, data is collected, processed and stored, and is used to create pseudonymous usage profiles. Where possible and reasonable to do so, the user profiles are completely anonymised. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that the visitor’s web browser stores and uses to recognise their internet browser if they visit again. The data collected in this way, which can also include personal data, is transferred to WiredMinds or is collected directly by WiredMinds. WiredMinds is permitted to use information left behind as a result of visits to our website in order to create anonymised usage profiles. The data collected in this way will not be used to identify visitors to our website unless affected persons have specifically granted us such authorisation. Nor will this data be merged with the personal data of the bearer of the pseudonym. Where IP addresses are collected, these are anonymised immediately upon collection by deleting the final block of numbers. You can revoke consent for the collection, processing and storage of your personal data at any time. This takes future effect.

Opt out of website tracking

Apart from the cookies set by the tracking tools Piwik and WiredMinds, we only use session cookies, which are deleted as soon as the user’s visit to our website ends. They do not enable links to any person whatsoever to be established.

German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG)

Under the framework of the AGG, we strive to prevent or eliminate disadvantages on the basis of race, gender, religion or worldview, disability, age or sexual identity, and we apply the act’s provisions consistently.

If, however, our publications contain ambiguous or potentially discriminatory statements, this is purely unintended. We ask that you please notify us in writing of any such instances, so we can check them and where necessary correct them. All grammatical forms used should be understood as being gender-neutral. Where only one grammatical form is used, this is to aid readability and avoid repetition.


We accept applications for employment at the postal address stated on our site notice page, or alternatively by email, exclusively at the address: Should you send an employment application to an email address other than, we cannot guarantee being able to adhere to our internal data protection regulations.

To exercise this right, simply contact the named contact person responsible for data protection, whose details can be found at the end of this privacy policy.

However, despite regular monitoring, complete protection against all risks is not possible.
