Data protection declarationfor business partners

The protection of personal data of our contact partners at customers, sales partners, advertisers, potential customers, suppliers and partners (hereinafter referred to as “Partners”) is an important matter for ZAUNERGROUP Holding GmbH, Mauer 20 / Gewerbepark, 4702 Wallern, Austria, and its subsidiaries (together: “Zaunergroup”). Zaunergroup therefore processes personal data exclusively in accordance with the applicable legal provisions regarding personal data and data security (GDPR, TKG 2003).

1. Data categories, purpose of the processing and legal basis

As part of the cooperation with business partners, Zaunergroup processes personal data for the following purposes:

  • Communication with business partners about products, services, projects and advertisements, e.g. in order to process queries from the business partner;
  • Planning, implementation and management of the (contractual) business relationship between Zaunergroup and the business partner, e.g. in order to provide products and services, to collect payments, for accounting, billing and debt collection and in order to carry out deliveries, maintenance work or repairs;
  • Processing of queries that we receive by email or by other medium
  • Carrying out customers surveys, marketing campaigns, competitions or similar campaigns;
  • Maintaining and protecting the security of our services and of our website, preventing and uncovering security risks, fraudulent transactions or other criminal or damaging actions taken with malice;

For the above purposes, Zaunergroup processes the following categories of personal data if applicable:

  • Contact information, such as forenames and surnames, address, telephone number, mobile number, fax number and email address;
  • Payment details, such as information needed to settle payment processes or to prevent fraud;
  • Further information, the processing of which is necessary within the framework of a project or to process a contractual relationship with Zaunergroup or which is provided voluntarily by our contact partners, such as orders made, queries or project details sent;
  • Information from public sources or other information data bases, and
  • Where required as part of compliance screenings: Information about relevant court proceedings and other legal disputes involving business partners.

The processing of personal data is necessary in order to achieve the purposes stated above, including to realise the (contractual) business relationship with the business partner. The legal basis for the data processing – unless expressly stated otherwise – is Article 6 (1) (b) and (f) GDPR or the expressly issued consent (Article 6 (1) (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation) from our partner. If the above personal data is not provided or if Zaunergroup cannot collect it, the various purposes described cannot be achieved in some cases.

2. Transmission and forwarding of personal data

Forwarding of personal data to third parties generally only takes place if this is necessary for implementing the contract the forwarding is permitted on the basis of a consideration of interests as defined in Art. 6 (1) lit f) GDPR, if Zaunergroup is legally required to forward data or if consent for this has been given. If necessary, Zaunergroup transmits personal data for the above purposes to other Zauner subsidiaries, but only if this is necessary for fulfilling the above purposes. Zaunergroup also transmits personal data to courts, authorities, public agencies, banks, insurance companies, operators of credit-relevant information systems, tax advisors or law firms insofar as this is legally permitted and necessary in order to comply with applicable law or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. The recipients described in this No. 2 are possibly situated in countries outside the European Economic Area (“third countries”), where the applicable law does not guarantee the same level of data protection as in your home country.
