II. Use of your personal data

Your personal data will be processed to the extent necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR), including:

  • to conclude or execute contracts and other business relationships (including to process purchase orders, deliveries or payments, or in connection with complaints and repair/maintenance work or in warranty cases) or to prepare or answer requests for quotes, to determine the terms of the contractual relationship, and with regard to product development activities; in each case with our customers, suppliers, service providers and competitors for whom you may act as an agent or employee;
  • to transfer your personal data within the company for internal administrative purposes (e.g. for accounting);

You can also sign up for the newsletter. You can object to this at any time in accordance with Article 21 of the GDPR, either by email to unsubscribe(at) or via an "Unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. No data from service providers outside the EU or the EEA is processed for this purpose.

Personal data is also processed for the purpose of fulfilling contracts with individuals (natural persons) with whom we have business relationships, e.g. to process purchase orders, deliveries or payments, or in connection with complaints, repair/maintenance work or in warranty cases, or to create and answer request for offers from individuals, to determine the terms of the contractual relationship and with regard to product development activities (Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR).

The data controller is subject to various legal obligations (Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR), which may make the processing of your personal data necessary. These legal obligations can arise, e.g. from tax law, foreign trade law or sanctions law.

Within the company, only authorised employees of mk-messtechnik GmbH with corresponding responsibilities have access to your personal data.

We are authorised to commission third parties such as IT service providers, legal advisers or business consultants to provide the services on our behalf, under our supervision and in accordance with our instructions. These third parties can have access to your personal data insofar as this is necessary to provide their services.

In countries outside the EEA, different data protection regulations may apply from those in your country of residence. If your personal data is transferred to other countries as described above, we will take reasonable precautions to ensure that your personal data is adequately protected in these countries. In particular, we have / will have entered into corresponding agreements with these data recipients containing the EU standard contractual clauses.
