Data Protection Notice
Thank you for your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of PLT Automation S.á.r.l. (hereinafter “PLT AUTOMATION”). The use of our website and its sub-pages is therefore possible without providing personal data. However, if special services of our company are used via our website, the processing of personal data of the user may become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary but not permitted by law, we generally obtain the prior consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, email address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter “GDPR”) and in accordance with the applicable country-specific data protection regulations applicable to PLT AUTOMATION.
By means of this data protection declaration, PLT AUTOMATION would like to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the processing of personal data in connection with this website and about the rights to which you, as the data subject, are entitled.
PLT AUTOMATION has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have holes in their security, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every user is free to transmit personal data to PLT AUTOMATION in alternative ways as well, for example by telephone.

2. Creation of Log Files
Each time this website is accessed, PLT AUTOMATION uses an automated system to collect data and information from the accessing computer. These are stored in the log files of the server delivering the website.
The following data can be collected:
- IP address of the accessing computer
- Date and time of access
- Date, URL and data volume of the accessed data
- Identification data of the internet browser and the operating system of the accessing computer
- the sub-websites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
- Website from which access or forwarding to this website took place (referrer)
- Name of the user’s internet provider and
- Other similar data and information used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems
The so-called IP address is transmitted for protocol reasons with each server request, so that the server can transmit the website to the requesting computer. Every internet user is assigned an IP address by his Internet Service Provider (ISP) as soon as he connects to the Internet. The ISP can typically trace which IP address was assigned to which of its customers at what time. As long as the IP address is stored by PLT AUTOMATION, the identity of the subscriber can theoretically be determined by the detour of a request to the ISP.
Art 6 (1) (f) GDPR is the legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files.
The processing of the data serves to deliver the contents of the website, to guarantee the functionality of our information technology systems and to optimise the website. The data of the log files is always stored separately from other personal data. An evaluation of personal data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
The pursuit of the aforementioned objectives is PLT AUTOMATION’s legitimate interest pursuant to art 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.
If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest.

8. Legal basis of processing in general
Unless otherwise stated in this Data Protection Declaration in individual cases, the following applies to the legal basis of data processing:
Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for PLT AUTOMATION’s processing operations where PLT AUTOMATION obtains consent for a particular processing purpose.
If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR.
The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of inquiries about products or services. If PLT AUTOMATION is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (I) (c) GDPR.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, when a visitor to the premises is injured and then his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information must be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In such a case, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR.
Finally, processing operations may be based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. This legal basis is based on processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal bases where processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of PLT AUTOMATION or a third party, provided the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail.
