We are delighted that you have shown an interest in our company. The website can be used without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of the special services provided by our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for this, we shall as a rule obtain consent from the data subject.
As the entity responsible for processing personal data, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that personal data processed via this website is protected in the most comprehensive way possible. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmission can still be subject to vulnerabilities, meaning that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each data subject is free to provide us with personal data via alternative means, for example by telephone.
a) Personal data
Personal data means all information which relates to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as “data subject”). A natural person is considered identifiable if they can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of said natural person.
b) Data subject
The data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing means any process carried out with or without the help of automated processes or any such series of processes in connection with personal data, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the identification of stored personal data in order to limit their future processing.
Profiling is any kind of automated processing of personal data which involves the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or relocation of said natural person.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
(g) Data controller or entity responsible for data processing
The data controller or entity responsible for data processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body which, alone or in conjunction with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by European Union law or the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under European Union or the law of the Member States.
A processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the data controller.
The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not they are third parties. However, authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under European Union law or Member State law, shall not be considered recipients.
j) Third party
A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body other than the data subject, the data controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.
Consent is any declaration of intent made voluntarily by the data subject for the specific case in an informed and unambiguous manner in the form of a declaration or other unambiguous affirmative action, in which the data subject indicates that they agree to the processing of their personal data.
Name and address of the controller
The controller within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws in force in the Member States of the European Union, and other provisions of a data protection nature, is:
OHO Holland GmbH - Werkzeugfabrik
Bermbacher Hauptstraße 7
036847 - 5190

If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
Collection of general data and information
This website collects various general data and information each time a data subject or an automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. Collected data can include (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (referrer), (4) the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time the website is accessed, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information which serves to protect against attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. This information is instead required in order to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) to optimise the content of our website and its advertising, (3) to ensure the long term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement agencies with the information that is necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. We evaluate this anonymously collected data and information both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, ultimately in order to ensure the best possible level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data in the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
Contact options via the website
Due to legal regulations, this website contains information that enables the establishment of rapid electronic contact with our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for what is known as electronic mail (email address). If the data subject contacts the data controller by email or through a contact form, the personal data provided by the data subject shall be automatically saved. Such personal data transmitted to the data controller by a data subject on a voluntary basis shall be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data shall not be disclosed to third parties.
Routine erasure and blocking of personal data
The data controller shall process and store personal data relating to the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purposes for which the data are stored, or to the extent provided for by the European legislator or any other legislator of laws or regulations to which the data controller is subject.
If the purpose of data storage no longer applies or a retention period prescribed by the European legislator, or another legislator, expires, the personal data shall be typically blocked or erased in accordance with statutory provisions.
Rights of the data subject
a) Right of confirmation
Every data subject has the right, as granted by the European legislator, to request confirmation from the data controller as to whether their personal data are being processed. If the data subject wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, they may contact an employee of the data controller at any time.
b) Right to information
Any data subject whose personal data is processed has the right, as granted by the European legislator, to receive information from the data controller at any time and free of charge regarding their personal data being stored and to receive a copy of this information. In addition, the European legislator grants the data subject access to the following information:
the purposes for which the data are being processed;
the categories of personal data that are being processed;
the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations;
if possible, the planned duration for which the personal data shall be stored, or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this duration;
the existence of the right to have personal data corrected or erased, or to restrict how much they can be processed by the data controller, or the right to object to the processing of your personal data;
the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
if the personal data are not collected from the data subject; all available information on the origin of the data;
the existence of automated decision making including profiling pursuant to Article 22.1 and 22.4 GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing with respect to the data subject.
The data subject also has the right to know whether personal data has been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In such a case, the data subject is also entitled to obtain information on the relevant guarantees in connection with the transmission.
If the data subject wishes to exercise this right to information, they may contact an employee of the data controller at any time.
c) Right to correction
Any data subject has the right, as granted by the European legislator, to demand the immediate correction of any inaccurate personal data relating to them. Furthermore and taking into account the purposes of processing, the data subject has the right to request that incomplete personal data be completed, also by means of a supplementary declaration.
If the data subject wishes to exercise this right of correction, they may contact an employee of the data controller at any time.
d) Right to erasure (“Right to be forgotten”)
Any data subject has the right, as granted by the European legislator, to demand from the data controller that their personal data be deleted immediately, provided that one of the following reasons applies and insofar as the data processing is not necessary:
The personal data were collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
The data subject revokes their consent to the processing of personal data pursuant to Article 6.1 a) GDPR or Article 9.2 a) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for processing.
The data subject lodges an objection against the processing of data pursuant to Article 21.1 GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for processing, or the data subject lodges an objection against the processing of data pursuant to Article 21.2 GDPR.
The personal data were processed illegally.
The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under European Union law or the law of the Member States by which the data controller is governed.
The personal data were collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8.1 GDPR.
Insofar as one of the above reasons applies and a data subject wishes to arrange for the deletion of personal data stored, they may contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee shall ensure that the erasure request is actioned immediately.
If the personal data were made public and our company as the controller is obliged in accordance with Art. 17.1 GDPR to delete the personal data, we shall take appropriate measures, taking into account the available technology and implementation costs, including technical measures, to inform other controllers who process the published personal data that the data subject has requested the erasure of all links to such personal data or of copies or replications of such personal data from said other controllers, unless the processing is necessary. The employee of shall make the necessary arrangements on a case by case basis.
e) Right to restriction of processing
Any data subject has the right, as granted by the European legislator, to demand that the data controller restrict the processing of such data if one of the following conditions is met:
The data subject disputes the correctness of the personal data and the data controller is granted sufficient time to verify whether the data are correct or not.
The processing of data is unlawful, the data subject declines the erasure of personal data and instead demands that the use of personal data be restricted.
The data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs the data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing of the data pursuant to Article 21.1 GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate grounds asserted by the data controller outweigh those of the data subject.
If one of the above conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored, they may contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee shall make arrangements for the restriction of processing.
f) Right to data portability
Any data subject has the right, as granted by the European legislator, to receive any of the personal data they have provided to the data controller in a structured, established and machine readable format. In addition, the data subject has the right to transmit these data to another data controller without hindrance by the current data controller to whom the personal data have been made available, provided that the processing is based on consent given pursuant to Article 6.1 a) GDPR or Article 9.2 a) GDPR, or a contract pursuant to Article 6.1 b) GDPR and the processing is performed with the aid of automated procedures, provided that the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the data controller.
Furthermore, when exercising their right to data portability in accordance with Article 20.1 GDPR, the data subject has the right to demand that the personal data be transmitted directly by a data controller to another data controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and insofar as this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.
To assert the right of data portability, the data subject may contact us at any time.
g) Right to object
Any data subject has the right, as granted by the European legislator, for reasons arising from their particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of their personal data, as provided for in Article 6.1 e) or f) GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
We will no longer process the personal data if you object to us doing so unless we can provide compelling and legitimate reasons for such processing which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or if processing the data serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Insofar as we process personal data to carry out direct advertising, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such direct advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to the processing of data for direct advertising purposes, we shall no longer process the personal data for such purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, for reasons arising from their individual situation, to object to the processing of their personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89.1 GDPR, unless such processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a task that is in the public interest.
In order to exercise the right of objection, the data subject can directly contact any employee. Notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, the data subject is also free, in connection with the use of information society services, to exercise their right of opposition by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
h) Automated individual decision-making including profiling
Any data subject has the right, as granted by the European legislator, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal effect on them, or substantially impairs them in a similar manner, provided that the decision, (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is admissible under the laws of the European Union or of the Member States to which the data controller is subject and where such laws contain appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is made with the express consent of the data subject.
If the decision is (1) necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller or (2) is made with the express consent of the data subject, we shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the controller, to express their own position and to challenge the decision.
Should the data subject wish to assert their rights with regard to automated decision making, they may contact an employee of the data controller at any time.
i) Right to revoke consent under data protection law
Any data subject has the right, as granted by the European legislator, to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
Should the data subject wish to assert their right to revoke their consent, they may contact an employee of the data controller at any time.
Legal basis of data processing
Article 6.1 a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract of 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, the processing is based on Article 6.1 b) GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries concerning our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Article 6.1 c) GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured at our company premises and their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would subsequently have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Th processing would then be based on Article 6.1 d) GDPR.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6.1 f) GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds where processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, the legislator took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the data controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 of the GDPR).
Legitimate interests in processing pursued by the data controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6.1 f) GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
Period for which the personal data shall be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After this period expires, the corresponding data shall be routinely erased, as long as they are no longer necessary for the performance or initiation of a contract.
Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner).
In order to conclude a contract, it may sometimes be necessary for the data subject to provide us with personal data which we must subsequently process. The data subject is, for example, obligated to provide us with personal data when our company concludes a contract with them. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
Before personal data are provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. The employee shall explain to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contractually, or if it is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
Existence of automated decision making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision making or profiling.
