Note on data transfer to the USA
On our website, among the tools we use are ones from companies based in the USA. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the US servers of these companies. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country in terms of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to disclose personal data to governmental security authorities with no possibility for you as a data subject to take legal action against this. Therefore, it cannot be prevented that US authorities (e.g. secret services) may process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
Withdrawal of your consent to the processing of your data
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You may withdraw your consent at any time with future effect. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out up to the time of withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
Right to object to data collection in particular situations and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR SPECIFIC SITUATION, INCLUDING PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS.

IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA UNLESS WE CAN PROVE THAT THERE ARE COMPELLING REASONS FOR PROCESSING WHICH ARE WORTHY OF PROTECTION AND WHICH OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PROCESSING SERVES TO ASSERT, EXERCISE OR DEFEND LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION ACCORDING TO ART. 21 (1) GDPR). IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA ARE PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING, INCLUDING PROFILING, INSOFAR AS IT IS CONNECTED WITH SUCH DIRECT MARKETING.

Right to data portability
You have the right to have data, which we process in automated form on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only take place to the extent that it is technically feasible.
Information, restriction, erasure
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to rectification, restriction or erasure of this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions regarding personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. Please note that erasure may not be possible if we are legally obliged to retain the data.
Right of restriction of processing
You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. To do so, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right of restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the correctness of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is carried out unlawfully, you may demand the restriction of the data processing instead of erasure.
- If we no longer need your personal data for the purposes of processing, but need it for the exercise, defence or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to request restriction instead of erasure of your personal data.
- If you have lodged an objection in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may be used - by exclusion of their storage - only with your consent, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of your browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol. If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
3. Data protection officer
Statutory data protection officer
We have appointed a data protection officer for our company:
Data Privacy Officer of Wacker Neuson SE
80809 Munich, Germany
Phone: +49 89 35402-0
4. Data collection on our website
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in "server log files". These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
These data will not be combined with data from other sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfil a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. In order to be able to process and answer your inquiry, we will pass it on internally to our sales companies (as affiliated companies) and the sales partner responsible for you, exclusively for this purpose. If your company is located in a country outside the European Union, you may be assigned to a sales partner in a third country. In this case, your data entered in the contact form will also be transmitted there. We also understand your voluntary contact as consent that you consent to the transfer of your personal data to the third country related (Art. 49 (1) GDPR).
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is thus exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal email to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out up to the time of withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal. The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to erasure it, withdraw your consent to its storage or until the purpose for which it was stored no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
5. Analytics and advertising
The data generated by etracker is processed and stored by etracker on behalf of the provider of this website exclusively in Germany and is therefore subject to the strict German and European data protection laws and standards. etracker has been independently audited and certified in this respect and awarded the ePrivacyseal data protection seal of approval.
Data processing is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of Art. 6 (1) lit. f (legitimate interest) of the German Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our concern in terms of the GDPR (legitimate interest) is the optimisation of our online offer and our web presence. Since the privacy of our visitors is important to us, data that may allow a reference to an individual person, such as the IP address, login or device identifiers, are anonymised or pseudonymised as soon as possible. No other use is made of the data, nor is it merged with other data or passed on to third parties.
You can object to the outlined data processing at any time by clicking on the slider. The objection has no disadvantageous consequences. If no slider is displayed, the data collection is already prevented by other blocking means.
