1. Collection and processing of data

Every access to our homepage and every download of a file on our homepage is logged for internal statistical and system-related purposes. This in all cases only concerns information that cannot be used to identify you.

The following data is recorded:

  • IP address of the computer from which the inquiry comes
  • Date and time of access
  • Name and URL of the downloaded file
  • Volume of data transmitted
  • Message whether the download was successful
  • Identification data of browser and operating system used
  • Website from which access came
  • Name of your internet service provider

Other personal data is only gathered if you supply this information voluntarily, e. g. when making an inquiry or registering with our website.

This information is needed for technical reasons to supply you with the website content you request and is collected by necessity when using the internet. It is processed primarily for the following purposes:

  • to ensure trouble-free connection to the website,
  • to ensure trouble-free use of our website,
  • to evaluate system security and stability as well as for
  • other administrative purposes.

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned purposes in collecting data. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. The only recipients of the data are the responsible body and possibly processors acting on our behalf.

2. Use and disclosure of personal data

If you have provided personal data, we use it only to reply to your inquiries, to process contracts entered into with you and for technical administration. We explicitly assert that we do not pass on this data to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes.

You have the right to withdraw any consent at any time without negative effects.

Any personal data stored is deleted when you withdraw your consent for storage, if the information is no longer necessary to fulfil the purpose intended by this storage or if storage is not permissible for other statutory reasons.

3. Your rights as data subject

You may exercise the following rights at any time though our data protection officer (see contact details):

  • request information on the data about you stored by us and its processing,
  • request rectification of incorrect personal data,
  • request deletion of your data stored by us,
  • request restriction of data processing if we may not yet delete your data owing to statutory obligations,
  • appeal against the processing of your data by us and
  • reject data portability if you have consented to data processing or have entered into a contract with us.

If you have granted us permission, you can revoke this at any time with future effect.

You can resort to the supervisory authority responsible for you with a complaint at any time. The supervisory authority responsible for you depends on the federal state in which you live, your job and the alleged violation. You can find a list of supervisory authorities (for the non-public sector) with addresses at:

4. Deletion/Blocking of data

We follow the principles of data reduction and data economy. We store your personal data only so long as is necessary to accomplish the purposes named here or as provided for by the many different storage periods stipulated by law. After discontinuance of the respective purpose or at the end of these periods, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with statutory provisions.

5. Cookies

Like many other websites, we also use “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your hard drive by a website server. From them, we automatically receive certain data such as your IP address, browser, operating system and your connection to the internet.

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. The information in the cookies helps us to make navigation for you easier and to display our web pages correctly.

Under no circumstances do we pass the data collected by us on to third parties or link it to personal data without your permission.

You can of course basically also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are routinely set to accept cookies. Generally, you can disable the use of cookies at any time via settings in your browser. Please use your internet browser’s help function to find out how you can change these settings. Please note that some functions of our website may not work if you have disabled the use of cookies.

6. Contact form

Should you contact us by e-mail or contact form regarding any type of question, you voluntarily grant us your permission to contact you. It is necessary in this case to give a valid e-mail address. This helps us to associate the request to a party and then reply to it. Provision of further data is optional. The details you provide are stored for the purposes of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. On closure of your request, personal data is deleted automatically.

7. MarketingPortal plus

8. Newsletter

Auf Grundlage Ihrer ausdrücklich erteilten Einwilligung, über­senden wir Ihnen regel­mäßig unseren News­­letter bzw. vergleichbare Informationen per E-Mail an Ihre angegebene E-Mail-Adresse.

Für den Empfang des News­letters ist die Angabe Ihrer E-Mail-Adresse ausreichend. Bei der Anmeldung zum Bezug unseres News­letters werden die von Ihnen angegebenen Daten ausschließlich für diesen Zweck verwendet. Abonnenten können auch über Umstände per E-Mail informiert werden, die für den Dienst oder die Registrierung relevant sind (Beispiels­weise Änderungen des Newsletter­angebots oder technische Gegebenheiten).

Für eine wirksame Registrierung benötigen wir eine valide E-Mail-Adresse. Um zu überprüfen, dass eine Anmeldung tatsächlich durch den Inhaber einer E-Mail-Adresse erfolgt, setzen wir das „Double-opt-in“-Verfahren ein. Hierzu protokollieren wir die Bestellung des News­letters, den Versand einer Bestätigungs­mail und den Eingang der hiermit angeforderten Antwort. Weitere Daten werden nicht erhoben. Die Daten werden ausschließlich für den Newsletter­versand verwendet und nicht an Dritte weitergegeben.

Die Einwilligung zur Speicherung Ihrer persönlichen Daten und ihrer Nutzung für den Newsletter­versand können Sie jederzeit widerrufen. In jedem News­letter findet sich dazu ein entsprechender Link. Außerdem können Sie sich jederzeit auch direkt auf dieser Web­seite abmelden oder uns Ihren entsprechenden Wunsch über die am Ende dieser Daten­schutz­hinweise angegebene Kontakt­möglichkeit mitteilen.

9. Web fonts

To present our content correctly and attractively in all common browsers, we use type libraries on our websites, e. g. Webfonts by Hoefler&Co. [] or []. Web fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache so that they do not have to be loaded again and again. If your browser does not support the web fonts or prevents access to them, the content is shown in a standard type.

When type libraries are called, this automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is then theoretically possible that the operators of such libraries collect data – although it is unclear at present whether they do and, if they do, to what ends.

You can find the data privacy policies of the library operators here:

10. Google Tag Manager

This website uses “Google Tag Manager”, a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter called: “Google”). Google Tag Manager enables us as marketer to manage web page tags via an interface. Tags are tiny code elements on websites that serve, amongst other purposes, to measure traffic and user behaviour, to collect data on the effect of online advertising and social channels, to deploy re-marketing and targeting of specific groups, and to test and optimise websites. The tool Google Tag Manager, which implements the tags, is a cookieless domain and does not collect personal data itself. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags that might collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If disabled at domain or cookie level, this remains effective for all tracking tags that are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

Google has in the meantime joined the Privacy Shield agreement between the European Union and the USA, and has been certified accordingly. Google has thus undertaken to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law. You can find further information at the following link:

Information on the third-party provider: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax +353 (1) 436 1001. You can find further information on data privacy at the following Google web pages:

11. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” (text files placed on your computer) to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to a server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymisation has been activated on this website, Google will, however, truncate your IP address in the Member States of the European Union and in other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.

Google will on behalf of the operator of this website use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address sent by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. If you do this, however, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Further, you can prevent collection and use of website-related data created by the cookie (including your IP address) by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at
An opt-out cookie that prevents the future collection of your data will then be set on your computer.

You can find further information on the terms of use and data privacy at or at

Please note that Google Analytics code has been supplemented on this website by “anonymizeIp” to ensure anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

In addition, or as alternative to the browser add-on or within browsers on mobile devices, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking this link [Disable Google Analytics]. This installs an opt-out cookie on your device. This prevents data collection by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser in future as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.

To commit Google to processing of the transferred data only in accordance with our instructions and only in compliance with applicable data protection regulations, we have concluded a processing contract with Google. In the exceptional case that data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the Privacy Shield agreement concluded between the European Union and the USA and has been certified in this regard. Google has thus undertaken to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law. You can find further information at the following link:

Information on the third-party provider: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. You can find further information on data usage by Google, setting and revocation possibilities and data privacy on the following Google websites:

12. Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to show geographical information visually. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data on usage of the map functions by visitors. You can find further information on data processing by Google at the Google data privacy statement at []. There you can change your personal data protection settings in the data privacy centre.

See the following link for detailed instructions on management of your own data in connection with Google products:

13. MATOMO, previously PIWIK

Data for marketing and optimisation purposes is collected and stored on this website with “Matomo”, an open-source web analytics tool []. Usage profiles can be created from this data under a pseudonym. Cookies can be used to this end. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the site visitor’s internet browser. The cookies enable recognition of the internet browser. The data collected with “Matomo” is not used to identify the visitor to this website personally and also not merged with personal data on the bearer of the pseudonym without the express consent of the person concerned.

14. Embedded videos

We embed video files in some of our web pages to make them more interesting and informative. The operator of the corresponding plug-in is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, it connects to the YouTube servers. In this way YouTube is informed of which pages you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can relate your browsing habits to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

When you start a YouTube video, the provider deploys cookies that collect information on your user behaviour.

If you have disabled storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, it is unlikely that such cookies will be stored when viewing YouTube videos. YouTube does, however, store non-personalised user information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must disable storage of cookies in your browser.

You can find further information on data privacy at “YouTube” in the provider’s data privacy statement at:

15. Social plug-ins

We offer you the use of so-called “social media buttons” on our website. To protect your data, we use the solution “Shariff” in implementing this function. As a result, these buttons are embedded on the website merely as graphics containing a link to the corresponding web page of the button provider. By clicking the graphic, therefore, you are forwarded to the services of the respective provider. Only then is your data sent to the respective provider. If you do not click this graphic, there is no communication between you and the provider of the social media button.

You can find information on the collection and use of your data in the social networks in the respective provider’s terms of use. You can find further information on the Shariff solution here:

We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies in our website: Twitter, Facebook, Google + and Whatsapp.

16. Admission, validity and effectiveness of the privacy statement

By using our website you agree to use of your data as described above. The privacy statement is currently valid and dates from August 2021.

Further development of our website or implementation of new technologies may make it necessary to amend this privacy statement. STAHL CraneSystems GmbH reserves the right to amend the privacy statement at any time with future effect. We recommend that you reread the privacy statement from time to time.

17. Security advice

By taking all technical and organisational measures possible, we make every effort to store your personal data in such a way that third parties cannot access it.

To secure your data during transfer, we apply suitable state-of-the-art encryption methods via HTTPS (e. g. SSL).

We cannot ensure full data security in communication by e-mail and therefore recommend that you despatch confidential information by post.
