Data protection statement


We are pleased about your interest in our company. In order for you to inform yourself comprehensively about your rights, we have listed the most important points in the following.

1. Who are we?

We are the controller for the processing of your personal data. You can reach us under the following contact information:

Gefahrgutbüro Weigel GmbH
Chemnitztalstraße 211
09114 Chemnitz

Fon + 49 371 380 388 70
Fax + 49 371 380 388 90

Due to the size of our company and the type of personal data we process, it is not necessary to appoint a data protection officer. If you have any questions about the protection of your data or your rights, please do not hesitate to contact us.

2. What data do we collect and why?

On the one hand, we automatically collect data when you use our website and, on the other hand, we process the data you provide us directly and voluntarily, e.g. to take advantage of our services.

2.1 Automatic data collection

By accessing our website or one of the webpages, general data are automatically collected. However, these data do not allow any conclusion to be drawn about you as a person.

The collected data is information about

  • What browser has been used?
  • When has our website been accessed?
  • What webpages have been accessed?


We need this information to adapt the contents of our web pages optimally to the users and to improve the protection against possible hacker attacks. In addition, we evaluate statistically the collected data.

2.2 Direct data collection

You can contact us with any questions or concerns directly by e-mail, contact form or telephone. It is up to you how much information you want to give us. When sending an e-mail, we will automatically receive your e-mail address. We need it to reply to you. If a business relationship with our company develops from your request, the data will be stored according to the legal retention periods. If necessary for the fulfillment of the contract, we will forward this data to subcontractors. This will be done so, for example, in the case of mailing. If you would like to see a list of subcontractors and service providers who come into contact with your data within the scope of the order, you are welcome to contact us.

3. Legal basis – The “small print”

When processing your data, we essentially refer to three important articles of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR):

Art. 6, 1 (a) of the GDPR refers to the consent for specific purposes.

We use this legal basis, for example, to publish employee photos on our website.

Art. 6, 1 (b) of the GDPR allows us to process personal data for the fulfillment or pre-fulfillment of a contract.

We use this legal basis, for example, when you contact us for offers or to take advantage of our services.

Art. 6, 1 (c) of the GDPR refers to a legal obligation to process personal data.

We use this legal basis, for example, to submit tax information to the tax office.

If it is necessary for order processing, personal data will also be forwarded to service providers. This involves, for example, the forwarding of data to postal service providers or freight forwarders. These data are used exclusively for carrying out the support services necessary for order processing. Any use for advertising purposes is not permitted.

4. How long will your personal data be stored?

Your data will only be stored on our servers for as long as required by law. If this deadline expires, the data will be routinely deleted if they are no longer needed. This would only be the case when fulfilling or preparing a contract. We do not store personal information for years without any specified purpose.

5. What happens if you do not want to provide your personal data?

Unless there is a legal or contractual obligation to provide personal data, such as in the case of tax regulations, it is your decision to give us your personal data. If you decide against it, however, you may not be able to take advantage of our services.

Should you have questions or require a case-by-case review, please do not hesitate to contact us at

6. What rights do you have?

As a user of our website, you have various rights:

Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’)

You have the right to request immediate erasure of your data if one of the following is true:

  • The reason for collecting or processing your personal data is no longer present
  • You have withdrawn your consent on which the processing is based and, at same time, there is no other need to continue processing the data
  • You have objected to processing the data while there is no other compelling legal requirement for further processing
  • Your personal data have been unlawfully processed
  • The erasure is necessary for legal reasons
  • The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8 (1) GDPR.

If one of the above reasons applies and you would like to have your data erased, you can always contact us at

Right to restriction of processing your data

You have the right to demand that we restrict processing if one of the following conditions is met:

  • You are contesting the accuracy of your personal data. Until this has been verified by us, you can request the temporary erasure of the data
  • The processing is unlawful; instead of the erasure of the personal data you can request the restriction of their use
  • We no longer need your data for processing, but you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims
  • You have objected to the processing of your data and it is not clear yet whether our legitimate reasons outweigh yours

In order to assert your right to restrict the processing of your data, you can always contact us at wenden.

Right to transmit your data or to have your data transmitted

You have the right to receive your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transmit the data to another entity without any impediment on our part, unless there are compelling reasons to do so. For this purpose, you have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly to another controller where technically feasible, provided that no rights and freedoms of other persons are violated. In order to exercise your right to data portability, you can always contact us at

Right to object

You can object to the processing of your data at any time. Please direct your objection to us at

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you think that we violate the Data Protection Act. Information on the Saxon supervisory authority, which is responsible in this case, as well as on the Saxon State Data Protection Officer, can be found at
