MARTIN respects your privacy
Otto Martin Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG (MARTIN) appreciates your visit to this website and your interest in the company and its products.
Data protection has a particularly high priority for MARTIN. As a matter of principle, you can visit our website without providing any personal data. Each time a website is accessed, the web server merely automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time the site was accessed, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the access to the site. This access data is evaluated solely for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and for improving our services. Within the scope of a balancing of interests, this serves to protect our overriding legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offerings in accordance with Article 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR.
However, if a data subject wishes to use our company’s special services via our website, the processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
As the data controller, MARTIN has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may have security gaps so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are also free to submit personal data to us by alternative means, for example, by telephone.
We inform you about the following topics below:
Name and address of the data controller
The party responsible for data processing (data controller) within the scope of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other national data protection laws of the Member States of the European Union, as well as other pertinent data protection regulations is:
Otto Martin Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG
Langenberger Straße 6
Contact information of the data controller
If you have any questions regarding the collection and use of your personal data, or if you wish to request information, correction, blocking or deletion of data, please contact the following in writing:
Otto Martin Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG
Langenberger Straße 6
Data protection officer
We have appointed a data protection officer for our company. Any data subject may also contact our data protection officer directly at any time with any questions or suggestions regarding their data protection.
PCK IT Consulting GmbH
Telephone: +49 831 564 00 500
Legal basis for data processing
At our company, Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR is the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.
Fulfilment of a contract
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is a party – as is the case, for example, for processing operations that are required for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration – such processing is based on Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR.
The same applies to processing operations that are needed for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example, in the case of enquiries about our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation through which the processing of personal data becomes necessary such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, such processing is based on Article 6 (1) lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were to be injured and therefore his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this situation, such processing would be based on Article 6 (1) (d) GDPR.
Finally, processing operations might be based on Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above-mentioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if such processing is required for the protection of a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the data controller (recital 47, sentence 2 GDPR).
Description and scope of data processing
As a matter of principle, we only process the personal data of visitors to the MARTIN website to the extent necessary for the provision of a functional website and to provide our content and services. The temporary storage of the user’s IP address by the system is required in order to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.
Personal data is only processed, for example, in the context of a registration, an enquiry, an establishment of contact, the initiation of a contract or a contractual relationship if the data subject provides it to us of his or her own free will. This data includes, for example, names, addresses, telephone numbers or email addresses. Therefore, the processing of our users’ personal data routinely only takes place with the consent of the user (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
Any transfer of your personal data to third parties, in particular to the MARTIN specialist dealer responsible for your region, is based on your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). The data you provide will be used to contact you.
You can object to the further processing of your data by MARTIN at any time by sending us an informal written message. The legality of the data processing already carried out, however, shall remain unaffected by the revocation. The data collected when contacting us will be stored by us and by the MARTIN specialist dealer responsible for your region for a specific purpose. Your data will not be forwarded to third parties without your consent or for a specific purpose.
Data deletion and storage period
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. In addition, the data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislation in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the data controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the above-mentioned standards expires unless the continued storage of the data is required for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
Data protection in job applications and the application process
MARTIN collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the job application procedure. The data may also be processed electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends the relevant job application documents to MARTIN electronically, for example, by email or by a web form on the website. If MARTIN concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If MARTIN does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the job application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests on the part of MARTIN prevent deletion. Another legitimate interest in this context includes, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz (German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG)).
The MARTIN website uses different types of cookie. Some cookies are placed by third parties that appear on our website. Cookies are text files that are stored on a computer system by an Internet browser.
Visitors to the MARTIN website can prevent the setting of cookies that are not absolutely necessary by the website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and therefore permanently object to the setting of such cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other software programs. This function is available in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the cookie settings in his or her Internet browser, not all functions of our website will be fully usable.

MARTIN has not integrated any Facebook components (“plugins”) on this website. Facebook is a social network that is linked to through a corresponding button. By clicking the corresponding button(s), you will leave the MARTIN website and visit the Facebook website. The button(s) are marked with a Facebook logo and/or the word “Facebook”.
If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your account there. When you click the respective button, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there.
Facebook’s operating company is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Facebook fan page
MARTIN operates the MARTIN fan page together with Facebook as joint controllers within the scope of Article 26 GDPR.
In individual cases, MARTIN can only view the information in your profile that you have made public. You can decide what information is included in your Facebook settings. In addition, you have the option to actively hide your “Likes” in your Facebook settings (https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=privacy) or to no longer follow the fan page. After that, your profile will no longer appear in the list of fans on this fan page.
MARTIN has no direct access to the user data collected by Facebook. Instead, we only receive highly condensed, i.e. anonymous, evaluations from Facebook, for example:
- Followers: Number of people following MARTIN – including growth and development over a defined period of time.
- Reach: Number of people who view a specific post. Number of interactions on a post. From this information, MARTIN can determine, for example, which content is better received by the community than others.
- Ad performance: How many people have seen an ad?
- Demographics: Average age of visitors, gender, place of residence, language.
We use these statistics, from which we cannot draw any conclusions about individual users, to constantly improve our online offering on Facebook and to better respond to the interests of our users. The legal basis for these usage statistics is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
We cannot link the statistical data to the profile data of our fans. In your Facebook settings, you can decide on the form in which targeted advertising is shown to you.
MARTIN only receives concrete personal data via Facebook if you actively inform us that we may do so via a personal message on Facebook. We will then use your data (e.g. first name, surname, etc.) to respond to your request in our customer service department. Your data will be stored in our CRM system for this purpose. This is carried out on the legal basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. This applies analogously if you send us your request via a Facebook form.
Since both Facebook and the fan page operator, in this case MARTIN, are joint controllers for a fan page pursuant to Article 26 GDPR, we have concluded an agreement with Facebook accordingly:
MARTIN has not integrated any Instagram components (“plugins”) on this website. Instagram is a service that allows users to share photos and videos, and also to redistribute such data on other social networks. The service is linked to through a corresponding button.
By clicking the corresponding button(s), you will leave the MARTIN website and visit the Instagram website. The button(s) are marked with an Instagram logo and/or the word “Instagram”.
If you are logged into Instagram, Instagram can assign the visit to your account there. When you click the respective button, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Instagram, and stored there.
The operator of the services of Instagram is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland.
MARTIN has integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also free of charge.
YouTube is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
When you access a page of our website, the YouTube player embedded there establishes a connection to YouTube in order to ensure the technical transmission of the video or audio file. When establishing the connection to YouTube, data is transmitted to YouTube. Further information about YouTube can be found at www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/.
MARTIN has integrated Google Maps functionalities into this website. Google Maps is an online map service that allows the display of dealer locations, for example. Furthermore, you can, for example, obtain travel information from your own location to a specific destination, such as a dealer location.
Google Maps is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
MARTIN has integrated Google Analytics functionalities into this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis comprises the collection, compilation and evaluation of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service records, among other things, data about the website from which the visit is made (referrer), pages visited (pages), files downloaded (downloads), videos/audio viewed, clicks on individual links, search words or search phrases (site search), length of visit, browser used, and so on.
If the visit is made via online advertising, e.g. banners, video ads, search engine advertising, and so on, we also record the banner or adword or similar element that motivated the user to visit the MARTIN website. With these insights, we can further optimise our website and tailor it even better to the needs of our visitors.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
Cookies are used to enable MARTIN or Google Analytics to analyse how you use the website. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your website usage. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred anonymously to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
MARTIN uses an IP anonymisation function (so-called IP masking) for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the website visitor’s Internet connection is shortened and anonymised by Google if access to our website is from a Member State of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. The anonymisation of the IP address ensures that it is not possible to draw conclusions about your individual person. A combination with other data from Google or evaluation of your IP address does not take place either.
MyFonts owns the rights to a font used on the MARTIN website. MARTIN has integrated MyFonts Counter on this website. MyFonts Counter is a web analytics service provided by MyFonts Inc, 500 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, MA 01801, USA.
Berthold Web Fonts
Berthold Web Fonts owns the rights to a font used on the MARTIN website. The registered office is Berthold Type Group LLC, 1200 South Pine Island Road, Plantation, Florida 33324, USA.
The collection of page views, IP addresses or other data via the font used may be possible. You can find out more about the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Berthold Web Fonts, as well as your rights and settings options in this regard in the data privacy information: https://www.bertholdtypes.com/info/legal.html
Use of external links
The MARTIN website contains links that refer to pages of third parties. MARTIN has no influence whatsoever over the design and content of websites operated by third parties. After the link is clicked, we also no longer have any influence over the collection, storage and processing of any personal data transmitted to the third party (such as the IP address or the URL of the page on which the link is located), as the behaviour of third parties is naturally beyond our control. MARTIN accepts no responsibility for the processing of such personal data by third parties.
Furthermore, from our website, we link to the MARTIN appearances on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. The operators of the respective services are responsible for the collection, storage and processing of personal data. Please refer to their respective privacy policies. MARTIN only processes the users’ data if the users communicate with MARTIN within the social networks in the form of posts or messages.
Subscription to our newsletter
On the MARTIN website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to a newsletter from our company. The personal data transmitted to MARTIN when subscribing to the newsletter is specified on the input screen used for this purpose.
By voluntarily entering the data, you give us your consent, on the basis of Article 6 (1) (1) (a) GDPR, that we may inform you by email about our company’s own products and services. For legal reasons, a confirmation email is sent to the email address entered by a data subject for the first time when requesting the newsletter mailing, using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation email is used to verify whether the owner of the email address, as the data subject, has authorised the receipt of the newsletter. By subscribing to the newsletter, you consent to us measuring your click and opening behaviour in order to provide you with an optimum offering from our newsletter mailing service. When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration as assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP), as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the email address of a data subject at a later date, and therefore acts as our legal protection. If we process your personal data on the basis of your consent, you can revoke your consent at any time without such revocation affecting the lawfulness of the processing that has taken place to date. If consent is revoked, we will cease the corresponding data processing. No personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will be passed on to third parties.
The consent to the storage of personal data that you have granted for the newsletter mailing can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking your consent, you will find a corresponding link in each newsletter or you can contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your data for the newsletter mailing will be deleted within 3 months after termination of the newsletter reception, provided that the deletion does not conflict with any legal retention obligations.
Contact options via the website (forms)
On the basis of statutory provisions, the website of MARTIN contains information ((https://martin.info/impressum or https://martin.info/kontakt)) that enables quick, electronic contact with our company and direct communication with us, including a general address for electronic mail (email address). If a data subject contacts MARTIN by email, via a contact form, fax, telephone or by any other means, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be automatically stored electronically for the purpose of processing and/or contacting the data subject.
MARTIN will pass on this personal data to third parties after receiving your declaration of consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) (1) (a) GDPR and/or on the basis of our legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR for the purpose of processing or contacting you in the context of preparing an offering, service support, contract processing or a contractual relationship.
MARTIN uses security measures in order to protect the data we manage against manipulation, loss, destruction, access by unauthorised persons or unauthorised disclosure. Our security measures are constantly being improved in line with technological developments.
If you provide us with personal data, we will use it to inform you about our products and services and, if necessary, to ask you about them. Such use will take place according to your declaration of consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) (1) (a) GDPR or on the basis of our legitimate interest pursuant to Article 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR.
If you have granted your consent for such use but do not wish to receive advertising from MARTIN in the future, you can revoke your consent for future effect at any time. For the purpose of revoking consent, please contact MARTIN in writing by letter or email.
Your data will then be deleted accordingly or, if still required for billing and accounting purposes, it will be blocked.
Your rights as a data subject affected by data processing
Under applicable laws, you have various rights regarding your personal data. If you wish to exercise these rights, please send your request by email or post, clearly identifying yourself, to the address specified under “Contact information of the data controller”. Below you will find an overview of your rights.
Right to confirmation
You have the right to obtain confirmation from us as to whether we are processing personal data relating to you.
Right to information
You have the right to obtain from us, free of charge, information about the personal data stored about you and a copy of this information at any time. The information relates to the following data:
- Processing purposes
- Categories of personal data processed
- Recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data has been, or will be, disclosed, in particular in the case of recipients in third countries or international organisations

- In case of transfer to a third country: Information about appropriate safeguards (Article 46 GDPR)
Right of rectification
You have the right to request a correction of your incorrect data without delay. You also have the right to have the data completed.
Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”)
You have the right to request that we delete your personal data without delay if one of the following reasons applies and insofar as the processing is not necessary:
- The personal data was collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which it is no longer needed.
- The data subject revokes the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR or Article 9 (2) (a) GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
- The data subject objects to the processing in accordance with Article 21 (1) GDPR, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing of his or her data according to Article 21 (2) GDPR.
- The personal data has been processed unlawfully.
- The erasure of the personal data is required for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject.
- The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8 (1) GDPR.
Right to restrict processing
You have the right to restrict the processing of your data if one of the following conditions is met:
- The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period that permits the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
- The processing is unlawful; the data subject therefore objects to the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of the use of the personal data instead.
- The data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
- The data subject has objected to the processing in accordance with Article 21 (1) GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the data controller’s legitimate grounds override those of the data subject.
Right to data portability
You have the right to receive your personal data in a structured, conventional and machine-readable format. You have the right to transfer this data to another data controller without hindrance from us provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR or Article 9 (2) (a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR, and that it is carried out with the aid of automated procedures unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the data controller. You have the right to request that the data be transferred directly from us to another data controller provided that this is technically feasible and that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals.
Right to object
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. MARTIN will no longer process the personal data in the event of an objection unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If MARTIN processes personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for such marketing at any time; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.
Automated decision in individual cases, including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you unless the decision (1) is necessary for entering into or the fulfilment of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is based on Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject and that law provides for adequate measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) has been made with the data subject’s explicit consent.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into or the fulfilment of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) has been made with the data subject’s explicit consent, MARTIN shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain the data subject’s involvement on the part of the controller, the right to express his or her point of view and the right to contest the decision.
Right to revoke consent under data protection law
You have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. The lawfulness of the processing until revocation shall remain unaffected.
Right to complain to a supervisory authority
You have the right to complain to a supervisory authority of your choice if you believe that the processing of your personal data violates the GDPR.
The supervisory authority responsible for MARTIN:
Bayerisches Landesamt für Datenschutzaufsicht (BayLDA)
