Purpose of collecting, processing or using data (business objective)

The business objective of Sandler AG is the development, production and sale of nonwoven materials in differentiated market segments.
Sandler AG is entitled to undertake all commercial operations, and undertake all measures that relate to its business objective, or which appear directly or indirectly conducive to it, as well as occasional advertising measures. In particular, this includes the improvement of Sandler AG products and articles and the improvement of customer satisfaction. In this context, Sandler AG sends their "In Bewegung" journal to their contacts twice a year by electronic means or post to inform them of news, company developments and company initiatives.
This business objective requires that Sandler AG collect, process and use personal data in close cooperation with development, production, sales and service partners. The support provided to international customers, suppliers and business partners takes place through the sales and service organisations at Sandler AG, as well as the partners employed.
Every instance of collecting, processing and using personal data takes place on the basis of legal provisions exclusively and for the fulfilment of the business objective defined above.


The following partners are involved within the scope of the provision of services by Sandler AG:

  1. Customer-specific and non-custom specific production, development, service and distribution partners
  2. Product manufacturers within the scope of their product responsibility as suppliers

Legal basis for the processing of personal data by Sandler AG

In principle, the legal basis for processing personal data arises from Art. 6 GDPR. These specifically include the following principles, which also arise from the aforementioned business objective of Sandler AG:

  1. Sandler AG processes personal data in order to fulfil an existing contractual relationship and undertake pre-contractual measures, since a contract cannot be concluded without this data and it would be impossible to fulfil the resulting obligations. (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR)
  2. Furthermore, Sandler AG, processes personal data based on its legitimate interest or the interest of a third party, provided that it is reasonable and necessary. (Art. 6 (f) GDPR) The legitimate interest of Sandler AG arises exclusively from the aforementioned business objective.
  3. If required, Sandler AG processes personal data in order to comply with a legal obligation, e.g. tax laws. (Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR)
  4. Sandler AG processes personal data based on consent alone, if required, such as for certain advertising measures. (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR)

Description of the data subject group and the associated data or data categories

On request, Sandler AG shall provide you with information on the methods used for the eventual storage or processing of your data and also which data is the subject in individual cases. The following data subject groups are affected within the procedures used or employed by Sandler AG:

  1. Existing customers
  2. Potential customers
  3. Prospective customers
  4. Suppliers
  5. Commercial agents
  6. Partners
  7. Employees
  8. Job applicants and, in certain cases, former employees of Sandler AG

Sandler AG principally uses the following data or data categories in the procedures used:

  1. Personal master data (e.g. first name, title, address)

  3. Contract master data (contractual relationship, interest in the product and contractual fulfilment)
  4. Customer history
  5. Contract billing and payment data (e.g. bank details, account number or credit card number, if applicable)
  6. Planning and control data
  7. Information from third parties (e.g. credit reference agencies or public registers)

Within the legal framework and in a very limited scope (mainly in internal relation to the employment relationship between Sandler AG and their employees), Sandler AG also collects, stores, processes and uses special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 GDPR.
Within the framework of their own IT infrastructure and special applications, Sandler AG also works with IT service providers.
Insofar as Sandler AG works with data processing companies within the scope of the aforementioned business objective, written data processing contracts shall be concluded with each of the partners employed. These contracts take into account and include the principles of data protection and the pertinent data protection regulations.

Potential recipients of data or recipient categories

Within Sandler AG, those employees and offices receive access to data that is required for fulfilling the aforementioned business objective. This also applies to any service providers and vicarious agents who are employed and are necessary. Personal data is only disclosed to third parties if it is required for fulfilling the aforementioned business objective, or if the data subject has given his consent. External recipients of personal data can include:

  1. Service providers and suppliers within the scope of contract data processing or based on a legitimate interest taking into account the aforementioned business objective.
  2. Authorities, provided that legal provisions are in place that are of central importance.

Transmission of data to recipients in third countries (non-EU countries)
