Data protection declaration

Data protection is a high priority issue for us! Both the protection of data of our employees and the protection of data of our customers as well as visitors and users of our website is of great importance to us.

Elicitation and processing of personal data

Generally, you can visit the webpages of BOA Metal Solutions GmbH without us requiring any personal data from you. Personal data is only collected if you provide it to us voluntarily, for example in the context of a contact request.

Use and disclosure of personal data and earmarking

All personal data arising in the context of the Internet direct services of BOA Metal Solutions GmbH will be collected, processed, and used in accordance with the applicable regulations for the protection of personal data, only for the purpose of contract execution and to protect our own legitimate business interests with regard to the advice and support of our customers and prospects.

Contact form

If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your information, including the contact data provided in the form, will be stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry. We will not pass on this information without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a). DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message to us by e-mail is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the point of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Planned data transmission to third countries

A transmission to third countries is currently not planned.
