Your personal data may be transferred to affiliated companies, as far as this is permissible under the purposes and legal bases outlined in No. 1.3 of these privacy notes.

Your personal data will be processed on our behalf based on data processing contracts as per Art. 28 GDPR. In these cases, we ensure that the processing of personal data is in line with the provisions of the GDPR. The categories of recipients in this case are internet service providers and customer management system and software providers.

Data transfer to recipients outside the company is only done if allowed or required by law, if necessary for contract initiation or fulfillment, if required for pre-contractual measures on your request, if we have your consent, or if we are authorized to provide information. Under these conditions, recipients of personal data can be, for example:

  • External tax consultant
  • Public bodies and institutions (e.g., public prosecutor's office, police, supervisory authorities, tax office) if there's a legal or official obligation
  • Recipients to whom sharing is directly necessary for contract initiation or fulfillment, such as transport service providers, subcontractors, and cooperation partners.


As part of our business activities, we conduct credit checks to minimize risk and protect against defaults. These checks are based on the processing of necessary personal data in strict compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We collect and process this information solely for the purpose of assessing the creditworthiness of our clients, relying on our legitimate interest as the legal basis. Your data is processed only to the extent absolutely necessary for conducting these checks. We are committed to protecting our customers' privacy and hereby transparently inform about the conduct and reasons for credit checks.


Your personal data will only be transferred outside the European Economic Area if it is necessary for contract fulfillment, upon your explicit request, or for legal reasons.

As necessary, we process and store your personal data for the duration of our business relationship or for fulfilling contractual purposes or – in the case of consent – as long as you have not revoked the consent. This includes, among other things, the initiation and execution of a contract.

In addition, we are subject to various retention and documentation obligations that arise, among other things, from the Commercial Code (HGB) and the Tax Code (AO). The prescribed retention or documentation periods range from two to ten years.

Finally, the storage duration is also determined by the statutory limitation periods, which, for example, according to §§ 195 ff. of the Civil Code (BGB) usually last three years, but in certain cases can last up to thirty years.


At SETEX, we strive to ensure a high level of data security to protect your personal data. In accordance with Article 32 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we have taken extensive technical and organizational measures to ensure an appropriate level of security for your data. These measures include:

Opting Out and User Control
Visitors have the option to opt out of Google Analytics tracking. This can be done by adjusting browser settings or by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. We respect our users' choices and control over their data.

Data Retention and Protection
Data collected through GA4 is retained according to the terms of our agreement with Google, adhering to the principles of data minimization and storage limitation under the GDPR.

This chapter provides insights into how we process your personal data when you visit our LinkedIn profile SETEX Schermuly textile computer GmbH.

Data Processing Purpose
Our main purpose in processing your personal data on our LinkedIn profile is to enable meaningful interactions with you. This includes responding to your inquiries, fostering discussions, and sharing relevant information about automation in textile finishing. Whether you are logged in to LinkedIn during your visit or not, we collect and process the data you provide and the information available on your LinkedIn profile.

Data Controllership
LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company ("LinkedIn") acts as the data controller for members who have voluntarily chosen to become members of LinkedIn and share information on their profiles. In addition, personal data of members who visit company pages like SETEX Schermuly Textile Computer GmbH are jointly controlled by LinkedIn and the administrators of these company pages. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Joint responsibility
LinkedIn jointly controls the personal data of members who visit company pages, including our page, with the page administrators on LinkedIn. There is a Joint Controllership Addendum in place between LinkedIn and Administrators. This Addendum clearly outlines the roles and responsibilities of the parties with respect to personal data derived from company pages.

LinkedIn processes data that members provide on their profiles, such as job function, country, industry, seniority, company size, and employment status data. In addition, LinkedIn processes information on how a member has interacted with a company page, for example, whether a member is a follower. This data is aggregated and provided to Administrators as ‘Page Insights.’ These insights assist Administrators in better understanding the trends and demographics of those who interact with their company page. It is important to note that members are not identifiable from the aggregate data provided to the Administrator.

The Addendum mandates that both LinkedIn and Administrators comply with their obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This includes upholding data subject rights and responding to data subject requests.

Data security and transparency
LinkedIn takes data protection seriously. They have conducted a Transfer Impact Assessment (TIA) for data transfers to the United States and adhere to strict guidelines for processing government requests for data disclosure according to their guidelines for law enforcement requests.

To ensure transparency, LinkedIn publishes details about how they respond to data access requests in their Transparency Report, which can be found at LinkedIn Transparency Report.

Cross-border data transfers
LinkedIn Ireland may transfer personal data processed within the European Union to its processor in the United States, LinkedIn Corporation. To ensure the protection of your data in such transfers, LinkedIn has implemented internal standard contractual clauses (SCCs) as explained in Section 5.2 of their privacy policy: LinkedIn Privacy Policy.

Governance for LinkedIn Pages
