Data Protection Declaration
It is basically possible to use our internet pages without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of our company's special services via our website, for example to order goods, it may be necessary to process personal data.
The processing of personal data of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Ordinance and in compliance with the country-specific data protection provisions applicable to Neosteel GmbH.
We as the controllers responsible for processing, have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of your personal data. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.
Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
