Data Subject Rights

The protection of your personal data is important to us. According to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we are obliged to inform you about the purpose for which our company collects, stores or forwards data. The information also tells you what rights you have in terms of data protection.

1. Responsibility for data collection

Responsible for data processing is:

Manz AG
Steigaeckerstr. 5
72768 Reutlingen

Tel. +49 (0) 7121 9000-0

Management Board: Martin Drasch (Chairman), Manfred Hochleitner, Dr. Ulrich Brahms

You can contact our external data protection officer, as well as internal data protection coordinator, by e-mail at or via our postal address with the addition of "Der Datenschutzbeauftragte".

2. Purpose of data processing

Data processing is carried out on the basis of legal requirements in order to establish a business relationship between you and us and to fulfill the associated obligations.

For this purpose, we process your personal data, in particular your contact data.

This includes title, first name, surname, e-mail, which we collect according to the information provided by you (for example, via a business card) or complete on the basis of our own research. If the SEPA direct debit mandate was selected as the payment method, we collect the following additional information in order to carry out the direct debit collection and to be able to refund credits: Name of the account holder, address data of the account holder, credit institution and IBAN.

The collection of your data is necessary in order to exchange personalized information with you about our products, offers, orders or otherwise arising topics regarding our business relationship. If the necessary information is not provided, careful support by us cannot be provided. 

3. Recipients of your data

We only keep your personal data for as long as is necessary to carry out the treatment.

We store your personal data for the above purposes and only as long as necessary. Your data will be processed for the first time from the time of collection, insofar as you or a third party provide it to us.

We only transfer your personal data to third parties if this is permitted by law or you have consented. Recipients of your personal data can be, among others, credit agencies (e.g. Schufa, Creditreform) for the determination of creditworthiness or payment default risks, authorities for the clarification of legal disputes. In individual cases, data may be transferred to other authorized recipients. Should we wish to process your personal data for a purpose not previously mentioned, we will inform you of this in advance in accordance with the statutory provisions.

We delete your personal data when the contractual relationship with you has ended, all mutual claims have been fulfilled and there are no other legal retention obligations or legal justification reasons for storage. These include, among others, retention obligations from the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO). This means that we delete your personal data at the latest after expiry of the statutory retention obligations, which is usually 10 years after the last transmission of a document.

4. Your rights

You have the right to obtain information about the personal data concerning you. You can also request the correction of incorrect data.

In addition, under certain conditions, you have the right to delete data, the right to restrict data processing and the right to data portability.

The processing of your data is based on legal regulations. Only in exceptional cases do we require your consent. In these cases, you have the right to revoke consent for future processing.

You also have the right to complain to the competent data protection supervisory authority if you consider that the processing of your personal data is not lawful. 

The address of the supervisory authority responsible for us is:

The State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information of Baden-Württemberg,

represented by the State Representative Dr. Jan Wacke,
Home address: Lautenschlagerstraße 20, 70173 Stuttgart,
Postal address: Postfach 10 29 32, 70025 Stuttgart,
Phone +49 711/615541-0, Fax: 0711/615541-15

5. Legal basis

Fulfillment of (pre-)contractual obligations according to Art. 6 para. 1 b) DSGVO

The data processing of personal data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 b) DSGVO and thus for the fulfillment of contractual or pre-contractual obligations, in particular in connection with the sale and distribution of our goods and services, as well as all necessary activities (e.g. customer management).

Safeguarding legitimate interests according to Art. 6 para. 1 f) DSGVO

The data processing of personal data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 f) DSGVO and thus for the protection of our legitimate interests or third parties.

Fulfillment of legal obligations according to Art. 6 para. 1 c) DSGVO

The processing of personal data may be necessary in part for the purpose of fulfilling various legal obligations and requirements to which we are subject, e.g. from the German Commercial Code or the German Fiscal Code.

Consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO

In individual cases, you may have given us consent to process your data. Then the processing will be carried out in accordance with the purposes and to the extent agreed in the declaration of consent.

Consent given, e.g. to receive a newsletter, can be revoked at any time with effect for the future. To do so, please contact our contact address or our data protection officer. Please note that processing that took place prior to the revocation is not affected by the revocation and, under certain circumstances, data processing may still be possible, at least in part, on the basis of a different legal basis.

We are looking forward to your inquiry!
