For the Lenze Group, it is especially important to guarantee the maximum possible protection for your individual personal data. Our Internet activities in all the countries where we maintain websites are, therefore, in accordance with the data-protection and data-security laws that are applicable there. In the following text, we indicate what information we gather and what we do with it.
We do not collect any personal data via our Websites without your consent. You alone decide whether you wish to disclose this data or not, for instance in the course of registration, a request or other such procedure. We use your personal data in order to respond to a request, process your order or to grant you access to special information or offers. In the interests of nurturing customer relationships, it may also be beneficial for us to store and process your personal data and pass it to the company in the country you have indicated in your request.
We store IP addresses for a maximum of 14 days. This information is stored for data integrity reasons, so that we are able to ensure the stability and operational reliability of our system.
If you do not wish to divulge your personal data to us within the context of fostering our customer relationship (and particularly for the purposes of direct marketing or market research), we will of course respect your wishes. We will not sell your personally identifiable information.
When you enter data on forms, you do so voluntarily. However, your consent to the collection, storage and processing of your data can be revoked by you at any time. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
We use your personal data collected within the framework of the newsletter registration, in particular the indicated areas of interest, for the purposes of sending you personalized product and service offers. By giving us your name, you enable us to address you personally and simplify the management of your data. Your address data, in particular your postcode, enables us to make you regionally tailored offers.
Furthermore, we are continuously focussed on improving our range of products and services. This also includes an evaluation of the newsletter we send out, e.g. whether the indicated e-mail address is actually accessible, which newsletters are opened, which links are clicked within the newsletter, and whether a response ((automatic) reply, error message, etc.) has been generated.
The data is collected and processed exclusively by Lenze and member companies of the Lenze Group. The data is not communicated to other external companies.
Before using the newsletter service, you consent to the use of your e-mail address and of the other data requested there. This data is used for the purposes of recommending individual product and service offers to you and to continuously improve the newsletter service.
You can revoke your consent (use of your e-mail address, use of your personal data) at any time. Please use the following unsubscription page. You will also find instructions on how to unsubscribe in the footer of each newsletter.
The legal basis of the data processing is Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. a) GDPR.
Collection and use of personal data in the context of job applications
Your data will only be collected and processed for the purpose of filling job vacancies on offer within the Lenze Group. The company that is looking to fill a vacancy and shows its address on the invitation to submit applications is responsible for data collection in this sense, i.e. when an application is submitted for a specific job that is being offered. If you apply for a specific job for which applications have been invited by a company within the Lenze Group, your data will be passed on to the persons/departments responsible for human resources. You can permanently withdraw this consent at any time by sending an e-mail to the contact person named in the job advertisement. If you submit an unsolicited job application, your data will automatically be sent to the relevant person(s)/department(s) responsible for human resources in accordance with your particular skills, abilities, and qualifications. Your data will then be used by the responsible persons/departments solely for the purpose of evaluating your job potential.
The legal basis of the data processing is Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. a) and b) GDPR.
Deletion of data
If you have applied for a job but your data ceases to be needed for this purpose, we ensure that your data is automatically deleted from our system. Processes have been created that guarantee automatic deletion of data when such data is no longer needed for the purpose for which we originally collected it or when the data retention period has expired. In the event of a negative decision, you job application data will be deleted after 6 months. If your profile is of general interest to us, we would like to include you in our standing pool of job applicants but we will, of course, ask for your consent to do so beforehand.
You have the right to obtain information on your personal data that we have a record of in our system. Moreover, you have the right to delete or block impermissible data and to correct any false data that we have stored in our system. To do so, you can send an e-mail to the contact person named in the job advertisement.

This data cannot be attributed to a specific person and can be deactivated at any time using the browser settings.

Google Tag Manager
This website uses the Google Tag Manager. The Google Tag Manager allows you to manage website tags from a user interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not record any personal data. The tool triggers other tags that record data in some circumstances. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation was made at the domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags that are implemented with Google Tag Manager.
