Declaration of obligation on information (Data Protection Declaration)

The protection of your personal data is very important to us. Therefore we process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal regulations (General Data Protection Regulation [Austria DSGVO], Telecommunications Act [TKG 2003]). In this information on data protection we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within our website.

Contact us
If you contact us via the form on the website or by e-mail, your data will be stored for six months to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.

Data storage
For the purpose of contract execution, we store the following data:
  • Company
  • Contact person
  • Address
  • Phone number
  • E-mail address
  • Shipping details
  • Other contact persons
The data provided by you is required to fulfil the contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures. Without this data we cannot conclude the contract with you. A transfer of data to third parties does not take place with the exception of the transmission of the address data to the transport company / shipping company commissioned by us for the delivery of the goods as well as to our tax advisor to fulfil our tax obligations.

After termination of the purchasing process, the data stored by us will be deleted. In the case of a contract, all data from the contractual relationship are stored until the expiry of the tax retention period (7 years). 

The data name, address, purchased goods and date of purchase are also stored until the end of product liability (10 years).  Data processing takes place on the basis of the statutory provisions of § 96 (3) TKG and Art. 6 para. 1(a) (consent) and / or (b) (necessary for fulfilment of the contract) of the GDPR (DSGVO).

Our website uses cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your user device using the browser. They cause no damage.

We use cookies to make our product and service offer user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. They allow us to recognise your browser when you next visit.

If you do not want this to occur, you can set your browser so that it notifies you about setting cookies and lets you allow this only in individual cases.

Web analytics
This website uses the Google Analytics service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to analyse users′ website usage. The service uses cookies - text files that are stored on your user device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the US and stored there.
On this website, IP anonymisation is effective. The IP address of users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area. This shortening eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. Under the terms of the agreement on order data, which website operators have entered into with Google Inc., they use the information collected to compile an evaluation of website use and activity, and provide services related to Internet use.

You have the option to prevent the storage of cookies on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all features of this website without restriction if your browser does not allow cookies.

Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link leads you to the corresponding plugin:
Here you will find further information about data use by Google Inc.:

The Lead Forensics tool uses IP tracking for identifying businesses and is not the same as cookies. The Lead Forensics tracking code will only provide information that is readily available in the public domain. It does not, and cannot, provide individual, personal or sensitive data regarding who has visited the Schrauben website. It will provide information on what companies have visited our website by identifying by way of their IP address. This data may be used by us to contact the business about their experience or for marketing purposes. We will not pass this data to third parties for any reason. More information can be found at

With respect to the GDPR (DSGVO), our concern (legitimate interest) is the improvement of the product and service offer and our website. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data are pseudonymised [pseudonymisation is recommended on the legal basis of “legitimate interest”; this must be clarified with the web analysis service].
The user data is stored for a period of 14 months.

For the creation and dispatch of our e-mailings we use “dialog-Mail”, a software provided by the Austrian company dialog-Mail eMarketing Systems GmbH, with registered offices in Nussgasse 31, 3434 Wilfersdorf. We also use it to analyse clicks or the opening of pages so that we can tailor the information we offer to the needs of our readers and provide them with targeted information. The IP addresses are not analysed by us. All data is processed by dialog-Mail in a high-security data centre in Vienna.

You can unsubscribe from the e-mail service (for example, the newsletter) at any time and without stating a reason by clicking on the corresponding “unsubscribe” link in each e-mail or simply by sending us an appropriate e-mail.
