Westfälische Gesenkschmiede GmbH
Schützenstr. 26-28

The website operator takes the protection of your data very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory regulations.

Please bear in mind that data transmission on the Internet can always be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection against access by third parties is not possible.

Access data
The website operator collects data on access to the page and stores this as "server log files". The following data is logged in this way:
- Visited website pages
- Time at the time of access
- Amount of data sent in bytes
- Source/reference from where the page was accessed
- Browser used
- Operating system used
- IP address used
The data collected is only used for statistical analysis and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to check the server log files retrospectively if there are concrete indications of illegal use.

This website uses cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website.
Current browsers offer an option to disallow cookies.
It is not guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if you disallow cookies.

Handling of personal data
The website operator collects, uses and will only disclose your personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of such data. Personal data includes all information that can be used to identify you personally and that can be traced back to you - for example, your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

Handling of contact data
If you contact the website operator using the contact options provided, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Newsletter subscription
The website operator offers you a newsletter in which he will inform you about current events and offers. If you wish to subscribe to the newsletter, you must provide a valid e-mail address.

Rights of the user: information, correction and deletion.
As a user, you can request information free of charge about what personal data has been stored about you. Provided that your request does not conflict with a legal obligation to store data (e.g. data retention), you have the right to have incorrect data corrected and to have your personal data removed or deleted.

All offers are subject to change and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete parts of the pages, or any entire offer without prior notice or to discontinue publication temporarily or permanently.

References and links
The author is not responsible for any content linked or referred to from these pages - unless he has full knowledge of illegal contents and would be able to prevent the visitors of his site from viewing those pages.

The website owner therefore expressly declares that the linked pages were free of illegal content at the time the links were created. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design and content of any linked pages. For this reason, the website owner hereby expressly disassociates themselves from all content on all linked pages that may have been changed after the link was created. This statement applies to all links and references set within the website owner’s website as well as to third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and, in particular, for damage arising from the use or non-use of such information lies solely with the provider of the site to which reference is made, and not with the party who merely refers to the publication in question via links.
Copyright and trademark law
The website owner endeavours to observe the copyrights of the graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in all publications, to use graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts created by themselves or to use licence-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts.

All brand names and trademarks mentioned on the website are possibly protected by third parties and are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. The mere mention of a trademark does not imply that it is not protected by the rights of third parties.

The copyright of published content created by the website owner themselves, remains solely with the website owner of these pages. Any duplication or use of content such as diagrams, sounds or texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the website owner’s written agreement.

Legal validity of this disclaimer
This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the internet publication which you were referred from. If sections or individual terms of this statement are not legal or correct, the content or validity of the other parts remain uninfluenced by this fact.

If you have any questions regarding data protection, please contact our data protection officer:
