3. Your rights as a data subject
First of all, we would like to inform you at this point about your rights as a data subject. These rights are standardized in Articles 15 - 22 EU GDPR. This includes:
- The right to information (Article 15 EU GDPR),
- The right to deletion (Article 17 EU GDPR),
- The right to rectification (Article 16 EU GDPR),
- The right to data portability (Art. 20 EU GDPR),
- The right to restrict data processing (Article 18 EU GDPR),

To assert these rights, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The same applies if you have questions about data processing in our company or would like to revoke your consent. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority.
4. Rights to object
Please note the following in connection with the right to object:
If we process your personal data for direct advertising purposes, you have the right to object to this data processing at any time without providing reasons. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to direct advertising.
If you object to processing for direct advertising purposes, we will process your personal data no longer for these purposes. The objection is free of charge and can be made informally, if possible to: email@example.com.
If we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you can object to this processing at any time for reasons relating to your particular situation; This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
5. Purposes and legal basis of data processing
When processing your personal data, the provisions of the EU GDPR and all other applicable data protection regulations are complied with.
The legal basis for data processing arises in particular from Article 6 of the EU GDPR.
We use your data to initiate business, to fulfill contractual and legal obligations, to carry out the contractual relationship, to offer products and services and to strengthen customer relationships, which may also include analyzes for marketing purposes and direct advertising.
Your consent to data processing can also constitute a permission requirement under data protection law. Before granting your consent, we will inform you about the purpose of data processing and your right of withdrawal.
If the consent also relates to the processing of special categories of personal data, we will expressly point this out to you in the consent. Special categories of personal data will only be processed in accordance with Article 9 of the EU GDPR if this is required by legal regulations and there is no reason to assume that your legitimate interest in excluding processing outweighs this.
In certain cases, we also base the processing of your data on a legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) of the EU GDPR. Data processing only takes place if this serves to protect our own legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of third parties and a balancing of interests has not shown that your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms outweigh them.
6. Disclosure to third parties
We will only pass on your data to third parties within the framework of the legal provisions or with the appropriate consent. Otherwise, it will not be passed on to third parties unless we are obliged to do so due to mandatory legal regulations (e.g. transfer to external bodies, such as supervisory authorities or law enforcement authorities).
7. Recipients of the data / categories of recipients
Within the UVEX Group, we ensure that only those people who need it to fulfill their contractual and legal obligations receive their data. Within the UVEX Group, this affects the following companies:
- UVEX WINTER HOLDING GmbH & Co. KG
- UVEX ARBEITSSCHUTZ GmbH
- laservision USA
- UVEX SAFETY Austria GmbH
- UVEX Arbeitsschutz (Switzerland) AG
The transfer may be necessary, e.g. E.g. if you apply for a position advertised by an affiliated company via our central applicant portal. For the purpose of analyzing our internal processes and technical support, data is passed on to UVEX WINTER HOLDING GmbH & Co.KG. Marketing analysis data is also passed on to the above-mentioned companies. It cannot be ruled out that personal data will also be transmitted.
We therefore transmit personal data, subject to your consent, to the above-mentioned companies if they were intended for one of the other above-mentioned companies (e.g. if direct delivery from another country is desired or another company is responsible).
In certain cases, other service providers support our specialist departments in fulfilling their tasks. The necessary data protection contracts have been concluded with all service providers.
8. Third country transfer / third country transfer intention
Data transfer to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) only takes place if this is necessary to carry out the contractual relationship or is required by law or if you have given us your consent to do so.
We transfer your personal data to service providers and group companies outside the European Economic Area, among others to the USA. You can find a list of tools/service providers including details of the processing location under point 14.1 “Tools used”.
The contracts required by data protection law have been concluded with all service providers.
9. Data storage period
We store your data as long as it is needed for the respective processing purpose. Please note that numerous retention periods mean that data (must) continue to be stored. This applies in particular to commercial or tax retention obligations (e.g. Commercial Code, Tax Code, etc.). Unless there are further retention obligations, the data will be routinely deleted after the purpose has been achieved.
In addition, we may retain data if you have given us your permission to do so or if legal disputes arise and we use evidence within the framework of statutory limitation periods, which can be up to thirty years; the regular limitation period is three years.
10. Secure transmission of your data
In order to best protect the data we store against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons, we use appropriate technical and organizational security measures. The security levels are continually checked in collaboration with security experts and adapted to new security standards.
The data exchange to and from our website is encrypted. We offer HTTPS as the transmission protocol for our website, each using the current encryption protocols.
We also offer our users content encryption as part of the contact forms and applications.
It is also possible to use alternative communication channels (e.g. postal mail).
11. Obligation to provide the data

In certain cases, data must also be collected or made available due to legal regulations. Please note that it is not possible to process your request or carry out the underlying obligation without providing this data.
12. Categories, sources and origin of data
The data we process is determined by the respective context: This depends, for example, on whether you place an order online or enter an inquiry into our contact form, whether you send us an application or submit a complaint.
Please note that we may also provide information for special processing situations separately in an appropriate place, e.g. when uploading application documents or when making a contact request.

The same applies to the other data whose processing is necessary to display our website correctly. The storage of the data in the so-called log files also serves to further optimize the site, to ensure functionality, to ensure the security of our applications and for legal protection (e.g. detection and defense of attacks on our website).< /p>

In addition, your IP address is processed for technical reasons and for legal protection. All other data are voluntary fields and can be entered optionally (e.g. to answer your questions more individually).

We collect the following data:
- Last name, first name
- Email address
- VAT ID
Registration is therefore either necessary to fulfill a contract (via our online shop) with you or to carry out pre-contractual measures, or is possible if guest access is also provided.
The principle of data economy and data avoidance is observed here, as only the data required for registration is marked as a mandatory field with an asterisk (*). These are e.g. B. the email address and password.
For orders in our online shop, we also require information about the billing address (title, first name, last name, address) for delivery. If the delivery address differs from the billing address, the above information for the delivery address must also be provided.

If you select this function, we will forward your email address to the shipping service provider. This enables the shipping service provider to inform you by email about the current shipping status and to arrange a delivery date with you. The legal basis for the data transfer is your consent in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a of the EU GDPR. You can revoke your consent to us or the shipping service provider at any time in the future.
12.5 Payment systems (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, b EU GDPR)
In our online shop you can pay in advance or by invoice. For technical reasons and for legal protection, your IP address will be processed.
The principle of data economy and data avoidance is observed in that you only have to provide us with the data that we absolutely need to carry out payment processing and thus to process the contract or which we are legally obliged to collect.
Without this data, we will unfortunately have to refuse to conclude the contract, as we will then not be able to carry it out.
12.6 For newsletters we collect and process the following data:
You can subscribe to a free newsletter on our website.
As part of the newsletter registration, the following data is collected:
- Last name, first name
- Email address
- The IP address assigned by your Internet service provider
- Analysis data from the embedded tracking pixel (time the newsletter was opened, links accessed)
The principle of data economy and data avoidance is observed here, as only the email address is marked as a mandatory field. Providing your name and industry is voluntary; if you provide your name, it will be used to send the personalized newsletter. For technical reasons and for legal protection, your IP address will also be processed when you order the newsletter.
We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to send newsletters by email. This means that you will only receive advertising by email if you have previously expressly confirmed that we should activate the newsletter service. We do this by sending you a notification email and asking you to confirm that you would like to receive our newsletter at this email address by clicking on a link contained in this email.
You can of course end your subscription at any time using the unsubscribe option provided in the newsletter and thus revoke your consent.
13. Automated individual case decisions
We do not use purely automated processing processes to make a decision.
14. Technologies for evaluating your usage behavior on our website (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a EU GDPR)
Our website uses technologies in several places to evaluate your usage behavior and to optimize the website. Cookies, third-party calls and local storage are used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and which your browser stores (locally on your hard drive).
We only use these technologies with your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a EU GDPR). This enables us to create an analysis of how users use our websites. This is how we can change the website content according to visitor needs. Cookies also give us the opportunity to measure the effectiveness of a specific ad and, for example, to place it depending on the user's thematic interests.
If you have given your consent here, you can revoke it at any time in the future by accessing the consent banner again HERE and making the appropriate settings there.
We use GOOGLE TAG MANAGER to control the various cookies and tools integrated into this website.

14.1 Tools used
15. Links to other providers
Our website also contains - clearly visible - links to the websites of other companies. If there are links to websites of other providers, we have no influence on their content. Therefore, no guarantee or liability can be assumed for this content. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of these pages.
The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations and recognizable legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal content was not apparent at the time of linking. However, permanent control of the content of the linked pages is unreasonable without concrete evidence of a legal violation. If legal violations become known, such links will be removed immediately.
16. Links to social media
On our website you will find links to the social media services of Meta / Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Instagram. You can recognize links to the social media service websites by the respective company logo. If you follow these links, you will reach LASERVISION's corporate presence on the respective social media service. When you click on a link to a social media service, a connection is established to the servers of the social media service. This sends information to the social media service servers that you have visited our website. In addition, further data is transferred to the provider of the social media service. These are, for example:
- Address of the website on which the activated link is located
- Date and time the website was accessed or the link was activated
- Information about the browser and operating system used
- IP address
If you are already logged in to the relevant social media service at the time the link is activated, the provider of the social media service may be able to determine your username and possibly even your real name from the data transmitted and this Assign information to your personal user account on the social media service. You can exclude this possibility of assignment to your personal user account if you log out of your user account beforehand.
The servers of the social media services are located in the USA and other countries outside the European Union. The data can therefore also be processed by the provider of the social media service in countries outside the European Union. Please note that companies in these countries are subject to data protection laws that generally do not protect personal data to the same extent as those in member states of the European Union.
17. Online offers for children
People under the age of 16 are not allowed to transmit any personal data to us or provide a declaration of consent without the consent of their legal guardian. We encourage parents and guardians to keep an eye on their children's online activities and interests.
