Data Protection

Data Protection


The data protection statement explains to users about the type, scope and purposes of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible providers Baust & Co. GmbH Materialflusssysteme, Baust Rollen GmbH, Baust Automation GmbH and Baust Stanztechnologie GmbH on this website (subsequently referred to as the “offer”).

The legal foundations of the data protection can be found in the German Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act (TMG).

Access data / server log files

The provider (or rather its Webspace provider) collects data on every access to the offer (so-called server log files). The access data includes the following:

name of the accessed website, file, date and time of the access, volume of data transmitted, report on successful access, browser type including version, operating system of the user, referrer URL (the previously used site), IP address and accessing provider.

The provider uses the logged data only for statistical analyses for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently review the logged data if there is legitimate suspicion of illegal use based on concrete evidence.

Personal data will only be collected, used and forwarded by the provider if it is legally permitted or the user consents to the data collection.


When making contact with the provider (for example with a contact form or by e-mail), the user’s information will be stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry as well as in case there are follow-up questions.


We inform you about ourselves and our offers with the newsletter.

If you would like to receive the newsletter, we require a valid e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address or alternatively that the owner is in agreement with receiving the newsletter. No other data will be collected. This data will only be used for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

When you register for the newsletter, we store your anonymised IP address and the date of registration. Saving this is only for evidence in case a third party misuses an e-mail address and registers himself to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorised party.

Your consent to store the data, e-mail address as well as its use to send the newsletter can be revoked at any time. It can be revoked via a link in the newsletter itself, in your profile area or by sending a message using the contact options given above.

Integration of services and third-party content

It may happen that third-party content is integrated in this online offer such as, for example, videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This always requires that the providers of this content (subsequently referred to as “third party providers”) use the IP address of the user. That is because they couldn’t send the content to the browser of the respective user without the IP address. The IP address is required to display this content. We make every effort to only use such content for which the respective provider only uses the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence over whether the third party providers save the IP address, for example for statistical purposes. If this is known to us, then we will inform the users of this.


Cookies are small files that make it possible to save specific information on the accessing device of the user (PC, smartphone, or the like) that is related to the device. They are used on the one hand to make websites more user-friendly and hence help the users (e.g. storing login data). On the other hand, they are used to record statistical data about website usage and be able to analyse it for the purpose of improving the offer. Users can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option with which the storage of cookies is limited or completely prevented. Nevertheless, be advised that the use and in particular the user convenience is limited without cookies.

Google Analytics

This offer uses Google Analytics, a Web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called "Cookies", which are text files placed on the user’s computer to help the website analyse how the customer uses it. The data generated by the cookie concerning the user’s use of this website is usually transmitted to a server of Google in the USA, where it is stored.

However, in cases where IP anonymization is activated on this website, the IP address of the user is first of all truncated inside member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptions is the full IP address transferred to a server of Google in the USA where it is truncated. IP anonymization is active on this website. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse the use of the website by users in order to compile reports on website activities and to provide additional services to the website operator that are related to the website and Internet usage.

The IP address transferred by your browser in the context of Google analytics is not combined with other data from Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by making the respective settings in their browser software. However, this offer advises users that in such a case, they might not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. Moreover, users can prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie that is related to their use of the website (including their IP address) by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:

As an alternative to the browser add-on, or inside browsers on mobile devices, please click this link to prevent the recording by Google Analytics inside this website in the future. In the process, an opt-out-cookie will be put on your device. If you delete your cookies, then you have to click this link again.

+1 button from Google+

This offer uses the “+1” button of the Google Plus social network, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). The button is recognised by the “+1” symbol on a white or coloured background.

When a user calls a website of this offer that contains such a button, the browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Google. The content of the “+1” button is transferred by Google directly to its browser, and from there it is integrated in the website. Therefore, the provider has no influence over the scope of the data that Google collects with the button. According to Google, no personal data is collected without clicking on the button. Such data, including the IP address, is only collected and processed for logged-in members.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and further processing and use of the data by Google as well as your rights in this connection and setting possibilities to protect your private sphere can be found by users in Google’s data protection information on the “+1” button: and the FAQ:

Revocation, changes, corrections and updates

The user has the right to obtain information on request for free about the personal data that has been stored about him. In addition, the user has the right to correction of incorrect data, blocking and deletion of his personal data to the extent that there is no legal retention period in force.

Remarketing makes it possible to address users who have already been on this website with targeted advertising.
