When you visit our websites without actively contacting us, all instances of access are recorded in a log file on our web servers. The following data is captured: IP address of your client, date and time of access, name and URL of the file retrieved, pages visited, amount of data transferred, whether the retrieval was successful, video/audio viewed or listened to, clicks on individual links, search words or search phrases. The log file is stored for two months.

This data is processed for the purpose of presenting our web pages securely and to best effect from a technical point of view. The legal basis for processing the data here corresponds to our legitimate interest, article 6, paragraph 1, point (f), of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). No person-related evaluations or reports are undertaken or produced.

3.1. Establishing contact using our contact forms

We only collect personal data pertaining to you – i.e. information that can be associated with you as an individual – if you provide us with this data yourself and enter into contact with us. This is the case if you enter your data in the input fields of the contact forms on our websites and send us inquiries.

Information that we absolutely need to process your inquiry is marked with an asterisk. You may also provide the remaining information voluntarily in order to make it easier for us to classify your inquiry.

We use your personal data only for communication with you and for processing your inquiry. The data will then be erased. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in communicating with you at your request, article 6, paragraph 1, point (f), of the GDPR.

You may at any time object to the further storage and use of your personal data collected in the course of contacting us or revoke your request to be included in the press distribution list at any time. To do this, an e-mail to

3.2. Receipt of the mtu Report customer magazine and the mtu eReport newsletter

In order to process your order and forward it to service providers who are involved by us as contractually bound data processors for this purpose, e.g. the customer magazine print shop.

We obtain your consent to this in advance. It is the legal basis for this data processing (article 6, paragraph 1, point (a), of the GDPR).

Your personal data will not be used in any other way or passed on to third parties. You may unsubscribe from the customer magazine or withdraw your consent at any time, by sending an informal message to

Once your withdrawal of consent has been received, your data collected during the ordering process is deleted immediately and will no longer be used. The customer magazine or newsletter will no longer be sent to you.

3.3. Personalized marketing communications

Based on your prior consent, we also process your personal data in order to provide you with relevant personalized marketing communications regarding topics of interest relating to mtu products and solutions, including technical articles, case studies, white papers, news articles, webinars, and videos. We provide these communications via e-mail; if you also provide us with your telephone number for this purpose, we or our local subsidiaries in your respective area may also call you to inform you about mtu products or mtu solutions via telephone.

The legal basis for this is article 6, paragraph 1, point (a), of the GDPR. We receive your consent particularly in the context of registering for gratuitous downloads of material on our websites or in the context of the registration for gratuitous webinars offered by third-party providers for which we deliver the content.

In order to tailor these marketing communications to your interests and preferences concerning our products and solutions, we use marketing tools to analyze data gathered by cookies and similar technologies when you use this website, as well as other information about your interests and preferences regarding mtu products and solutions which we collect due to your download of materials on our website, your registration for webinars or when you take notice of our marketing e-mails.

In particular, we use Pardot, a B2B marketing automation solution from Salesforce (based in the US), to 1) provide our prospective customers (known as ‘prospects’) with customized marketing communications and 2) qualify them as potential sales leads. We only collect and process data that has been provided to us on the basis of consent.

RRPS has agreed on corresponding EU standard contractual clauses with Salesforce. However, we would like to point out that an appropriate state level of data protection in the USA cannot be ensured and therefore access by US authorities cannot be ruled out (see ECJ ruling 16.07.2020 - C-311/18). Your data will therefore only be processed or passed on based on your consent.
