Visiting our website

We, Schmid Industrieholding GmbH, 2754 Wopfing, attach great importance to the protection of your personal data. For this reason, in accordance with relevant data protection provisions – particularly the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – we inform you about the collection, processing and use of your data during your visits to our website.

The following data is processed or recorded while visiting our website:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited pages)
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
  • Time of the server request

Purpose and duration of the data processing / disclosure of the data

We use this data only to optimize the appearance and evidence in case of unlawful usage of our website and erase them, if there is no legal basis for a longer storage period after 7 days.

Your personal data is not made public by us. Within the scope of this data processing, the data is transferred to an IT processor within the affiliated companies. On some occasions, this service provider in turn commissions sub-processors (e.g. Google LLC). A disclosure of data to third parties does not take place, unless the issuance of data is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims before a court or public authority. In such a case, the data is erased immediately after such proceedings have ended.


Moreover, we use cookies to make our offer user-friendly. These are small text files that are stored with the help of the browser on your device. They do no harm. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. They enable us to recognise your browser next time you visit the website.

If you do not want this to happen, you can also adjust your browser in such a way that you will be informed about the setting of cookies, so you can decide to accept these on a case-by-case basis.

With the deactivation of cookies, the functionality of our website may be limited.

Web analysis

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and which help analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Data processing is carried out based on the legal provisions Art. 6 para. 1 letter a (consent) and/or letter f (legitimate interest) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Our concern in terms of the GDPR (legitimate interest) is the improvement of what we offer and our website. Because the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data (IP address) is pseudonymised. This operation deletes the last digit of your IP address. As a result, only a rough localization is possible.

If you wish to prevent the acquisition by Google Analytics, you have the following options:

  • Deactivate the usage of cookies in the settings of your browser
  • Install a plug-in: []
