Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy provides an overview of the processing of personal data by the companies of the CADFEM Group, described in more detail in Section 2 of this policy, within the scope of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

This Privacy Policy serves to inform you about the type and scope of personal data processed by us and the purposes and legal grounds for such processing. Furthermore, we wish to draw your attention to your rights regarding personal data processing by us. Insofar as we use terms that are also used in the GDPR, such as “personal data”, “processing”, “data subject” and “controller”, these terms have the meanings defined in detail in Art. 4 GDPR.

The personal data processed by us, the purposes for which it is processed and the legal grounds upon which it is processed depend on the services you use and/or the agreements you have made with us (e.g. online content, products and/or services ordered or requested). Not all parts of this Privacy Policy will therefore apply to you.

This Privacy Policy does not replace the information that we provide to you separately and in relation to your individual case each time your personal data is collected or when contacting you for the first time.

When processing personal data, we comply with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and, as applicable, with the provisions of other relevant statutory provisions of national legislation on data protection, e.g. in Germany the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), and any other legislation, e.g. in Germany the Unfair Competition Act (UWG).

We use binding contractual agreements to protect sensitive non-personal data, e.g. data about products (development status, design data, functional samples, simulation results), which you entrust to us as a customer in the context of the services we offer in the form of support, advice and/or commissioned calculation. Our obligations arising from these agreements extend considerably further than the obligations arising from the statutory provisions (in Germany, for example, from the Act to Protect Business Secrets - GeschGehG).
