SACS Aerospace



SACS Aerospace GmbH take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We handle your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration. Our website can be used in the main without providing any personal details. Insofar as any personal details are collected on our pages (e.g. name, postal address or e-mail addresses), this is, as far as possible, always done on a voluntary basis. These details will not be passed on to any third party without your explicit consent. We draw your attention to the fact that online data transfer (e.g. in communication by e-mail) can have security loopholes. Total protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.

In order to make visiting our website appealing and to facilitate the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on a number of different pages. These are small text files that get stored on your device. Some of the cookies we use get deleted after your browser session ends, i.e. after you close your browser (these are called session cookies). Other cookies (persistent cookies) remain on your device and enable us or our partner companies (cookies from third-party providers) to recognise your browser again when you next visit. Once cookies have been placed on your device, they collect and process (within a bespoke scope) certain user information, such as browser and location data and your IP address. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a set length of time, which can vary from cookie to cookie.

The purpose of some cookies is to simplify the ordering process by saving settings (e.g. remembering the content of a virtual shopping basket for a later visit to the website). Insofar as the data processed by any individual cookies implemented by us includes personal data, the processing occurs as per Art. 6.1.b of the GDPR either through execution of the contract or as per Art. 6.1.f of the GDPR for the protection of our legitimate interest in the best possible functionality of the website and to make visiting the site customer-friendly and efficient.

In some circumstances we work with advertising partners who help us to make our website more interesting for you. To this end, when you visit our website we will save partner companies' cookies (third-party cookies) for such situations on your hard drive in addition to our own. For when we work with such aforementioned advertising partners, the paragraphs below provide you with specific, separate information on how such cookies are used and what data they collect.

Server log files

The sites' provider automatically collects and saves items of information to so-called server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. These are:
• Browser type and version
• Your operating system
• Referrer URL
• Host name of the accessing computer
• Date and time of the server request
• Volume of data sent in bytes
• Your IP address (where applicable in anonymised form)

These pieces of data cannot be attributed to specific people. This data is not merged with any other data sources. The processing takes place pursuant to Art. 6.1.f of the GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality or our website. The data is not passed on nor used in any other way. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of any specific indications of illegal use.

Please note that you can set up your browser so that you are informed about the placement of cookies and are able to decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept them. Or you can decline to accept them in specific cases or as a blanket rule. Every browser manages cookie settings in different ways. This is described in the browser's help menu, which explains to you how you can change your cookie settings. You will find these for the respective browsers via the following links:

Making contact

Whenever you contact us by e-mail, phone or fax, your enquiry, including all personal details arising from it (name, substance of the enquiry, etc.) are saved and processed for the purpose of dealing with the issue you raised. We will not pass on such data without your consent. If you enquiry is in connection with the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the execution of contractual measures, the processing of this data is done on the basis of Art. 6.1.b of the GDPR. In all other cases the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6.1.a of the GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6.1.f of the GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective handling of enquires directed to us. The data sent to us via contact enquiries remains with us until you request its deletion, you revoke your consent to it being held or the purpose for which it was being held no longer applies (e.g. after the processing of your enquiry has been completed). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially statutory periods of retention – remain unaffected.

Data processing for handling orders

To process your order we work with services providers who assist us with all or some aspects of executing contracts entered into with us. Whenever you enter into a contract with us for the provision of a service or delivery of goods, your personal data is never used without your specific consent in any way other than in the ways required for providing the service or executing the contract. These include in particular passing on your data to transport companies, credit companies or other support services used for providing the service or executing the contract.

The personal data that we collect is passed on in the course of processing the contract, for example, to the transport company commissioned with the delivery, to such extent as is required for delivering the goods. In the course of processing payment we pass on your payment data to the contracted bank to such extent as is necessary for processing the payment. The legal basis for passing on the data here is Art. 6.1.b of the GDPR.

We release customer account information and personal details about customers if we are legally obliged to do so and if passing on such data in this way is necessary in order to enforce our general terms and conditions or any other agreements or to protect our rights and/or the rights of our customers and/or of third parties.

Use of Google Maps

We use on our site the components of 'Google Maps', a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as 'Google'.

Each time the components of 'Google Maps' are accessed, Google places a cookie on your device in order to process user settings and data when displaying the page on which the 'Google Maps' components are integrated. Generally this cookie does not get deleted by closing the browser. Rather it expires after a set time, unless you manually delete it earlier.

Use of the Google Maps' functions requires the saving of your IP address. This information is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. The operator of this website has no influence over this data transfer.

Google Maps is used in the interest of presenting our online offerings in an appealing way and of making it easy to locate the places we mention on our website. This represents a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6.1.f of the GDPR.

If you do not agree to this processing of your data, it is possible to disable the 'Google Maps' service and in this way to prevent the transfer of data to Google. To do this you need to disable the Java script function in your browser. We would advise you, however, that if you do this, you will have only restricted use of 'Google Maps' or may not be able to use the service at all.

Your use of 'Google Maps' and of the information obtained via 'Google Maps' is governed by the Google conditions of use

and the additional terms and conditions for 'Google Maps


Registration / Login area

The person concerned is able to register on the website of the party responsible for the processing by entering a user name and password. Which data is sent in this process to the party responsible for the processing is dependent on the respective input screen used for registering. The data entered by the person concerned is collected and stored solely for internal use at the premises of the party responsible for the processing and for our own purposes. The party responsible for the processing can have the data passed on to one or more commissioned processors who likewise utilise the data solely for an internal use attributable to the party responsible for the processing.

As a result of registering on the website of the party responsible for the processing the IP address issued by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the person concerned, the date and the time of the registration are also saved. This data is stored because it is only in this way that abuse of our services can be prevented and because this data can, if the need arises, enable any crimes committed to be cleared up. The storing of this data is therefore necessary to safeguard the party responsible for the processing. This data is never passed on to any third party unless there is a legal obligation to do so or it aids the prosecution of crime.

The registration of the person concerned by voluntarily providing personal data enables the party responsible for the processing to offer the person concerned content or services that due to the nature of the matter can be offered only to registered users. The registration and issue of login details (user name and password) is not done via the options offered on this site. Registered users are able at any time to amend the personal data entered at the time of registration or to have this completely deleted from the database of the party responsible for the processing.

The party responsible for the processing will provide the person concerned at any time with information about what personal details relating to them have been stored. Further the party responsible for the processing will correct or delete the personal data at the request or instruction of the person concerned as long as no legal duty of retention prevents this from being done.
