Please note that transmission of data transfer over the Internet (for example, when communicating by email) is not completely secure. It is not possible to completely protect data from being accessed by third parties.

WDI EMAC GmbH
Industriestrasse 25a

The controller is the natural person or legal entity who, alone or jointly with others, determines the reasons why your personal data are processed, and the way this is done (for example, names, email addresses, etc.).

Withdrawing your consent to the processing of data

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can withdraw consent that has already been provided at any time. To do so, an informal notice by email is sufficient. The lawfulness of data processing carried out before the withdrawal of consent shall remain unaffected by such withdrawal.

Right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority

The relevant supervisory authority for data protection issues is the data protection officer of the Federal German State in which our company has its registered office.

Right to data portability

You have the right to receive personal data that we have processed in an automated manner on the basis of your consent or in order to perform a contract, in a commonly used, machine-readable format, and to transmit it to a third party. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this can only happen if it is technically feasible to do so.

Data transfer in the event of the conclusion of contracts for merchants and the dispatch of goods

We only transfer personal data to third parties if we need to do so in order to implement the contract, for example to companies charged with the delivery of the goods or the financial institution instructed to process payments. There shall be no further transfer of data unless you have provided your express consent to such. There shall be no disclosure of your data to third parties, for marketing purposes for example, without your express consent. Credit card details are not stored as a matter of principle.

SSL or TLS encryption

This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and in order to protect the transfer of confidential content such as orders or enquiries which you send us as the website operator. You can tell if a connection is encrypted because the browser’s address bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and the padlock symbol is displayed in your browser bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you transfer to us cannot be viewed by third parties.

Access, unavailability, erasure

Within the scope of the legal provisions in force, you have the right, at any time and free of charge, to access your stored personal data as well as information about its origin, the recipients and the purpose for the data processing.

We hereby declare that we do not agree to the sending of unsolicited promotions, advertising and informative literature using our contact data disclosed as part of our duty to provide a legal notice. The website operators expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event that unsolicited promotional information, such as spam emails, is sent.
