1.2 The legal basis

You are generally under no legal or contractual obligation to provide us with your personal data. However, it is possible that we can only provide certain services to a limited extent or not at all if you do not provide the data required for this or do not give the relevant consent for the processing of your data.

When processing personal data, Vibracoustic complies with the relevant legal provisions on data protection and data security in the countries concerned as well as internal data protection regulations.

As a matter of principle, we collect and use personal data of our users only to the extent that this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as the contents and services or for the service requested. Beyond that, the collection and use of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases in which the processing is necessary for technical reasons to provide the content of the website or in which we are authorized or obliged to process on another legal basis. Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing operations of personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a) EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

1.3 What rights do you have as a data subject?

According to the EU General Data Protection Regulation, you have the following rights:

If your personal data is processed, you have the right to receive information about the data stored about you (Art. 15 GDPR). If incorrect personal data is processed, you have the right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR). If the legal requirements are met, you can request the deletion or restriction of processing, as well as object to processing (Art. 17, 18 and 21 GDPR).

If you have consented to the data processing or if a contract for data processing exists and the data processing is carried out with the help of automated procedures, you may have a right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR).

You have the right to revoke your declarations of consent under data protection law at any time for the future. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

If we process your data on the basis of our overriding legitimate interest, you may object to the storage of your personal data at any time. Your personal data will no longer be processed unless we have compelling legitimate interests that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.

To exercise your rights, please send an email to Should you make use of your above-mentioned rights, Vibracoustic will check whether the legal requirements for this are fulfilled.

You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. The supervisory authority responsible for Vibracoustic SE is the Baden-Württemberg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information.

Data will only be passed on if this is necessary to answer your request and only to companies that belong to the Vibracoustic Group.

The processing of personal data from the input mask serves us solely to process the contact. In the case of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data.

The other personal data processed during the submission process is used to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended.

  • Name and contact details
  • Communication contents
  • Personal data in offers and other official letters
  • Sanction lists

Since your personal data is also partly processed by service providers, in particular email service providers as well as providers for hosting and support, your data will be processed by them. The basis for this is an agreement on order processing.

These employees may be clerks from all divisions of the affiliated companies in our group of companies. Affiliates may be located in third countries and personal data is transferred consistently in compliance with the GDPR by entering into data protection agreements with such affiliates, including the EU standard contract clauses, where appropriate, or in the presence of the European Commission’s adequacy decision for the destination country. If a processor is located in a third country, the personal data will be transmitted always in compliance with the provisions the respective articles of the GDPR. A related additional clause will be included in the relevant agreement on order processing.

The personal data is deleted as soon as the legal basis for its processing ceases to exist. Nevertheless, there may also be further authorisations for storage at the same time, or if a legal basis ceases to exist, a new one may apply, such as the statutory retention requirements, which make longer storage necessary.

4. When you visit, follow or otherwise interact with one of our Social Media presences

We have our own presence in various social media to present ourselves, provide information, get in touch with the respective users and to communicate with them. We operate open public profiles in social networks as listed below.

Social networks, for example Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. can generally analyze your user behavior extensively when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners). A visit to our social media presences initiates numerous data protection-relevant processing operations. In detail:

If you are logged in to your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can match this visit to your user account. Your personal data may also be collected even if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data is collected, for example, via cookies that are stored on your end device or by recording your IP address. With the so collected data, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles, in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, interest-based advertising can be displayed within and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the relevant social network, the interest-based advertisement can be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.

Please also note that we cannot reproduce all the processes on the social media portals. Therefore, depending on the provider, further processing may be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. For details, please refer to the terms of use and privacy policy of the respective social media portals.

4.1 Controller and claiming of rights

If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the provider of the social media platform for the data processing operations caused by this visit. You can basically exercise your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data transferability and complaints) both against us and against the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. against Facebook). Please note that despite the joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full control over the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options depend largely on the corporate policy of the respective provider.

4.2 Storage Period

The data collected directly by us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for storing them no longer applies, you request us to delete them, or revoke your consent to storage. Any cookies stored remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
