Otto Martin Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG (MARTIN) is glad to receive your visit to this website and happy that you are interested in the company and its products.
MARTIN respects your private sphere
Protecting your private sphere while processing personal data and ensuring the security of all business data are important concerns for us that we consider for all of our business processes. We process personal data collected when you visit our website confidentially and only in accordance with legal requirements.
Hereinafter, we would like to provide you with information on the following topics:
- Collection and processing of personal data
- Data protection for applications and the application process
- Use of social plug-ins for social media
- Google Maps
- Google Analytics
- Use of external links
- Subscription to our newsletter
- Newsletter tracking
- Way to contact us via the website (forms)
Collection and processing of personal data
Personal data is only stored when you convey it to us yourself, e.g. during registration, as part of a request, when contacting us, or in order to put together a contract or for a contractual relationship. The data is collected and used exclusively for the purpose of providing the services requested by you. Your data is collected and processed for the purposes mentioned above exclusively upon your request (EU GDPR art. 6 para. 1 a). The ordering of a service provided for a fee later on or through the contact form changes the legal basis to the fulfilment of the contract (EU GDPR art. 6 para. 1 b).
Your personal data will only be forwarded to third parties (e.g. MARTIN specialised trade partner) with your permission for the purposes of processing or making contact within the context of offer creation, service assistance, or contract execution/contract relationship. Your data will not be forwarded to third parties without a corresponding reason.
Beyond that, the following information is collected when you visit our website: IP address, website from which you were redirected (referrer), pages visited (pages), files downloaded (downloads), videos viewed/audio accessed, clicks on individual links, words or phrases searched (site search), duration of the visit, browser used … if the visit is the result of online advertising, such as banners, video ads, search engine advertisement, we also collect information on which banner or Adword induced you to visit the MARTIN website. This knowledge allows us to further optimize our website and better tailor it to meet the needs of our visitors.
Data protection for applications and the application process
MARTIN collects and processes personal data from applicants for the purpose of going through the application process. Processing may also take place through electronic channels. This is the case particularly when the applicant submits the corresponding application documentation to MARTIN through electronic channels, such as via e-mail or a web form on the website. If MARTIN concludes an employment contract with the applicant, the provided data will be stored in keeping with legal requirements for the purpose of implementing the working relationship. If MARTIN does not conclude a contract for employment with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification is given of the decision not to hire as long as there is no other justified interest on the part of MARTIN in saving the information. Another justified interest in this sense could, for example, be constituted by the burden of proof in a legal proceeding pursuant to the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
Permission is understood to be any clear declaration of intent given voluntarily by the affected person in an informed manner for the specific case in the form of a declaration or any other clear action expressing confirmation and by which the affected person shows understanding and agrees to the processing of the affected personal data.

Use of external links
The MARTIN website may contain links to the websites of third parties − providers not affiliated with us. Once you click the link, we will no longer have any control over the collection, storage, and processing of any personal data transmitted to third parties when you click the link (such as the IP address or the URL of the page where the link is located), since the behaviour of third parties is by its very nature out of our control. MARTIN does not accept any responsibility for the processing of such personal data by third parties.
Subscription to our newsletter
On the MARTIN website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to the company newsletter. The personal data transmitted to MARTIN when you subscribe to the newsletter is determined by the entry form used for this.
MARTIN informs its customers and business partners of offers from the company at regular intervals by way of a newsletter. Affected persons can generally only receive our company newsletter if the affected person has a valid e-mail address and registers to have the newsletter sent to them. When an affected person first subscribes to the newsletter, a confirmation e-mail is sent to the provided e-mail address for legal reasons in order to complete the double opt-in process. This confirmation e-mail is used to check if the owner of the e-mail address is the one who, as the affected person, has authorized receipt of the newsletter.
The personal data collected while subscribing to the newsletter is used only to send our newsletter. The personal data collected in connection with the newsletter service is not forwarded to third parties. The affected person can cancel their subscription to our newsletter at any time. The agreement to the storage of personal data that the affected person has given us for the purpose of newsletter distribution can be withdrawn at any time. A corresponding link is available in every newsletter that can be used to withdraw approval. MARTIN will automatically interpret unsubscribing from the newsletter as a withdrawal.
The MARTIN newsletter contains so-called tracking bugs. A tracking but is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails that is sent in HTML format in order to facilitate log file recording and log file analysis. This enables us to perform a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Using the embedded tracking bug, MARTIN can tell if and when an e-mail has been opened by an affected person and which links in the e-mail are followed by the affected person.
Personal data collected through the tracking bugs in the newsletter are stored by MARTIN and analysed in order to optimise newsletter distribution and better adapt the content of future newsletter issues to the interests of the affected person. This personal data is not forwarded to third parties. MARTIN will automatically interpret unsubscribing from the newsletter as a withdrawal.
Way to contact us via the website (forms)
In keeping with legal regulations, this website of MARTIN contains information (company details) that can be used to quickly contact our company electronically and communicate with us directly and a general e-mail address is included with this. If an affected person contacts MARTIN via e-mail or through a contact form, the personal data conveyed by the affected person for the purpose of processing or making contact is automatically stored.
This personal data will only be forwarded by MARTIN to third parties (e.g. MARTIN specialised trade partner) if you have explicitly given permission and for the purposes of processing or making contact within the context of offer creation, service assistance, or contract execution/contract relationship.
MARTIN takes security precautions to protect the data managed by us against manipulation, loss, destruction, access by unauthorized persons, or unauthorized publication. Our security measures are constantly being enhanced in keeping with technological developments.
If you give us personal information, then we will use it to inform you of our products and services and ask you questions about these things, as long as you clearly give your approval for use of your personal data for advertising purposes. If you have given your permission for such use, but do not want to receive advertisements from MARTIN in the future, then you can withdraw your permission at any time effective for the future. Your data will then be deleted accordingly or, if necessary for billing and accounting purposes, blocked.
Furthermore, you can withdraw your permission for the collection, processing, and use of your personal data at any time effective for the future.
The personal data will be deleted when you withdraw permission to store the data, knowledge of the personal data is no longer needed for the purpose associated with storage, or when storage is impermissible for other legal reasons.
Data needed for billing and accounting purposes or that is subject to the legal retention obligation is not affected by this.
