Data privacy declaration

We are aware that protecting your privacy when using our website is important to you. We take protecting your personal data very seriously and it goes without saying that we comply with legal provisions concerning data protection. In the following we would like to briefly show you how Tyrolit-Schleifmittelwerke Swarovski K.G (hereinafter TYROLIT) on the website “” and its other websites collects, manages and uses information about people who visit these websites. They do not apply to third-party websites to which this website and other TYROLIT websites link.

Furthermore, you note that TYROLIT changes, supplements, extends, removes or otherwise updates these data protection principles from time to time when changes are made to our services and to take account of changes in the law. However, your personal data will always be handled in accordance with the version of the data protection principles that was in force at the time the data was collected. We will publish changes to our data protection principles on this website so that you are fully informed about the types of personal data we collect, how this personal data is used and under what circumstances it can be transmitted. Our data protection principles can be accessed from all individual pages of our website. Wherever personal data is collected, you will find additional information on the purpose for which this data is used and, if necessary, a way to give your consent.

Collecting personal data

We do not collect any personal data (e.g. names, addresses, telephone numbers or e-mail addresses) via our websites, unless you voluntarily provide us with such data (e.g. through registration, survey) or – if legally required –  have consented or the relevant legislation on protecting your data allows this.

Guarantee of privacy and personal data protection

TYROLIT observes the legal provisions concerning data protection, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In general, we only process personal data in accordance with these data protection principles. The following section explains how and when TYROLIT collects personal data. In addition, we may be required by law to support judicial or regulatory investigations for further data processing.

Data storage

We would like to point out that for the purpose of the simple shopping process and for subsequent contract processing, the web shop operator saves the IP data of the connection holder as well as the name, address and payment details of the buyer.

In addition, the following data is also stored with us for the purpose of contract execution: E-mail address and, if applicable, telephone number. The data you provide is required to fulfill the contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures. Without this data, we cannot conclude the contract with you.  A data transfer to third parties does not take place, with the exception of transferring payment data to the commissioned service provider mPAY24.  mPAY24’s data protection regulations are available here . This service provider uses the data exclusively for contract fulfillment and processing. There is no data transmission to third parties, with the exception of transmitting payment data.

After the purchase process is canceled, the data stored by us will be deleted. In the event of a contract being concluded, all data from the contractual relationship will be stored until the tax retention period (7 years) expires.

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 legal provisions of Section 96 (3) TKG and Art 6 (1) lit a (consent) and/or lit b (necessary to fulfill the contract) of the GDPR.

Most of the Internet services provided by TYROLIT can be visited without personal registration and identity disclosure. For certain services, we ask you for your name, user name and, if necessary, further personal information. You are free to decide whether to provide this information. Without this information, however, TYROLIT cannot provide the desired service in these cases and cannot answer some of your inquiries.

TYROLIT only stores personal data for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out and in accordance with the statutory provisions. If you contact us using the form on the website or by e-mail, your data will be saved for six months for the purpose of processing the request and in the event of follow-up questions, unless a business relationship is established anyway.

If you no longer want information, please let us know.

Confidentiality of personal data

Except in the cases mentioned in these data protection principles, TYROLIT will not pass on your personal data to third parties. Personal data can be disclosed within the framework of the law to other TYROLIT companies in Germany and abroad, which undertake to treat the personal data in accordance with these data protection principles and to process them further in accordance with their original recording purpose, e.g. delivery of services, marketing, data processing or technical support.

Your personal data can also be disclosed to a third party if a business location or parts thereof with the associated customer data are sold or transferred. To the extent necessary and reasonable, you will agree to this. In such a case, we would contractually require the buyer or the acquiring party to treat the personal data in accordance with these data protection principles. Personal data can also be disclosed to a third party if we are required to do so by law, a court order or a government regulation within the framework of the law, or if the data disclosure is necessary in connection with a judicial or police investigation at home or abroad and is permitted under national law.

Right to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data portability, revocation, objection.

TYROLIT endeavors to ensure that personal data recorded is always correct, up-to-date and reliable with regard to its intended use. We give you the opportunity to object to processing your personal data, insofar as the law grants you this option. This applies in particular to marketing measures (right to object to advertising), provided these do not require your consent (opt-in) anyway. Please notify us if you would like to object to the use of your data for advertising purposes. This also applies if you have any questions about the use of your personal data. In such a case, please provide the name of the website on which you entered your personal data, identify yourself and let us know which specific information you would like to have corrected, updated or deleted. Inquiries regarding the deletion of personal data are carried out taking into account all applicable legal, archiving and verification obligations.
