Thank you for your interest in our company. The management of Muhr und Bender KG places a particularly high value on data protection. The Muhr und Bender KG website can be used without providing any personal data whatsoever. However, in order for an individual to use certain services provided by our company via our website, it may be necessary for us to process personal data. If we need to process personal data and there is no legal basis for doing so, we generally obtain the consent of the individual in question (data subject).
Personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject, is always processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Muhr und Bender KG. This privacy statement aims to inform the general public about the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data collected, used, and processed by our company. Furthermore, this privacy statement informs data subjects about their rights. This privacy statement applies to our website as well as other online offerings from Muhr und Bender KG, such as presences on Meta (Facebook & Instagram), LinkedIn, and Xing.
As the data controller, Muhr und Bender KG has implemented a number of technical and organizational measures in order to guarantee, as far as possible, comprehensive protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, when transmitting data via the Internet, there is always a risk of security vulnerabilities, and therefore absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.
For this reason, all data subjects have the option of communicating personal data to us by alternative means, including by telephone (firstname.lastname@example.org, +49 2722 620; +49 2722 62 9260).
The privacy statement of Muhr und Bender KG is based on the terminology used by the European legislator when adopting the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), valid from May 25, 2018. Our privacy statement should be easy for the general public, our customers, and our business partners to read and understand. We would therefore like to start by explaining the terminology used. In this privacy statement, the following terms are used:
a) personal data
Personal data refers to all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as the “data subject”). A natural person is considered identifiable if they can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by being assigned to an identifier such as a name, ID, location information, or online identifier, or to one or more specific characteristics that are an expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychic, economic, cultural, or social identity of this natural person.
b) data subject
A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the data controller.
Processing is any procedure, or sequence of procedures, carried out with or without the help of automated processes in connection with personal data such as collection, compiling, organization, sorting, storage, adjustment or modification, reading, querying, use, publication by transmitting, distributing, or making available in some other form, matching or linking, truncation, erasure, or destruction.
d) restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data for the purpose of restricting its future processing.
Profiling is any kind of automated processing of personal data in which this personal data is used to evaluate certain personal aspects pertaining to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, abode or change of location of this natural person.
As a company that takes its responsibility seriously, we do not perform any automated decision-making or profiling.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without consulting additional information, provided that this additional information is stored separately and there are technical and organizational measures in place to guarantee that the personal data is not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Data controller
The data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of the processing are determined by European Union law or the laws of member states, the controller or the specific criteria for the controller’s nomination may be designated by European Union law or by the laws of member states.
The processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or any other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
A recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or any other body to whom personal data is disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation under European Union law or the laws of member states are not deemed to be recipients.
j) Third party
A third party is any natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or any other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor, and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.
Consent is any freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by the data subject in the form of a declaration or other clear affirmative action by which the data subject signifies agreement to personal data relating to him or her being processed.
2. Name and address of controller
The controller, within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the member states of the European Union, and other provisions dealing with data protection, is:

5. Collection of general data and information
The website of Muhr und Bender KG collects certain general data and information every time a data subject or automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the server’s log files. The data that may be collected includes: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (the “referrer”), (4) the sub-websites visited on our website by an accessing system, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6), an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information for the purposes of security in the event of attacks on our IT systems.
In making use of this general data and information, Muhr und Bender KG does not identify the data subject. Instead, this information is required to (1) provide accurate content on our website, (2) optimize the content of our website and optimize the advertising for our website, (3) ensure the long-term operational reliability of our IT systems and the technology used for our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement agencies with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyberattack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore analyzed by Muhr und Bender KG for statistical purposes, as well as with the aim of improving data protection and data security within our company, in order to ultimately guarantee an optimal level of protection for the personal data that we process. The anonymous data in the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject. This data is analyzed anonymously for statistical purposes. The data is not disclosed to third parties.
6. Contacting the company via the website
In line with legal provisions, the website of Muhr und Bender KG includes functionality that allows users to contact our company instantly by electronic means and to communicate directly with us, including the provision of a general e-mail address. If a data subject contacts the controller via e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. This personal data voluntarily sent to the controller by a data subject is stored for the purpose of handling requests or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not disclosed to third parties. At your request, this data is erased by us following the conclusion of the correspondence. The data is not disclosed to third parties outside the company. In addition, the data collected in this way is not matched to data that may be collected by other components of our site.
7. Data protection for job applications
We collect and process personal data relating to applicants for the purpose of conducting the application process. If this results in an employment relationship, the application data will continue to be used for this purpose, in line with the legal provisions.
It is important to note that the data you provide is not stored anonymously but, in the context of the application process, will be made accessible to the relevant personnel managers as well as functions within the company that are relevant to the position. If additional consent is given via the form, the application you submit can be stored and considered for other vacancies at the company.
If you apply for a job at one of our group companies, your data will be transmitted to our company for this purpose.
If you apply for a job outside Germany, your data will also be transmitted to the relevant country for this purpose, if applicable.

9. Use of YouTube
Muhr und Bender KG has included a number of components (videos) from YouTube on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips for free and other users to view, rate, and comment on these videos, also for free.
YouTube’s operating company is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. The data controller is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
Every time one of the individual pages on this website, which is operated by Muhr und Bender KG and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) appears, is accessed, the web browser on the user’s IT system is automatically prompted by the relevant YouTube component to download a representation of the YouTube component in question from YouTube. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google receive information on which specific subpage of our website the user is visiting.
If the user is logged in to YouTube at the same time and accesses a subpage containing a YouTube video, YouTube identifies which specific subpage of our website the user is visiting. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and attributed to the user’s YouTube account.
If the user does not wish for this information to be sent to YouTube and Google, the user should log out of his or her YouTube account before accessing our website in order to prevent the information being sent.
10. Online social media presences
We establish online presences on social networks in order to communicate with interested parties and users who are active on those platforms and to provide them with information about our company.
Data relating to these users may be processed outside the European Union by the service provider. This may entail risks for the user because, for example, it could make enforcement of the user’s rights more difficult.
The user’s data is generally processed by the service provider for market research and advertising purposes. This means, for example, that the user’s interests, determined from the usage behavior, are used to place advertisements, on and off the platforms, that might match the user’s interests. In most cases, cookies are stored on users’ computers for this purpose. In addition, data may be stored in the usage profiles independently of the devices used (particularly if users are members of the relevant platforms and are logged in to them).
Below you will find information on the processing we perform on your personal data as part of the online presences we provide. In its judgment of June 5, 2018, the ECJ confirmed the joint responsibility of the service provider and the website operator.
The social media website you visited offers you the opportunity to react to our posts, comment on them, create your own user post, and send us private messages to discuss personal matters. We use the data provided by you and made accessible to us for this purpose (e.g., username, images, interests, contact details) exclusively for the purpose of communicating with customers and interested parties. Our focus is on providing a platform on which we can display up-to-date information, which gives you the opportunity to send us your concerns, and which allows us to handle these concerns as quickly as possible.
Muhr und Bender KG makes use of photos and videos for marketing purposes on social media platforms. Any personal data contained therein is only processed with the consent of the data subject. The legal basis for the processing of the recorded data is Art. 6, para. 1(a) GDPR. Data subjects are entitled to have the stored data erased at any time. The data subject has the right to obtain information on the personal data relating to him or her at any time. The data is erased as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected or the consent is withdrawn.
We do not perform any data processing via the website besides the basic functions. Please bear in mind that the service provider may use tracking tools as well as cookies, independently of our use of the website.
For a detailed view of the processing and opt-out possibilities, please refer to the following links to information from the provider.
In case of requests for information and assertion of user rights, please note that these can be asserted most effectively via the providers. Only the providers have access to the user data and can implement the necessary measures directly and provide information. However, feel free to contact us if you require assistance.
