Privacy notice

Plasser & Theurer, Export von Bahnbaumaschinen Gesellschaft m. b. H. is pleased to welcome you on our website. Protecting your personal data and privacy is a major concern to us. This privacy notice informs you about data processing on our website.

Processing and using your personal data

The term personal data refers to any information that can be used to identify you, such as your name or your email address. We apply the principle of data reduction and data minimisation. Personal data is only used to the extent required and for legally authorised purposes.

We process your personal data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

For communication purposes we exclusively use personal data used by you in the context of general communication.

Apart from that, we process your personal data only with your previous consent and/or in the case of a prevailing legitimate interest.

External service providers we partner with on our website, if any, are selected with the greatest possible care. They are bound in regards to nature and extent of data processing tasks and to comply with our data protection standards.

Automatically generated data

Log file information (web server logs) is automatically collected when you visit our website. This includes browser type and version, the operating system used, the referrer URL (i.e. the previously visited website if you have accessed our website via a hyperlink), and the date and time of retrieval of the webpage. We are unable to allocate this data to certain persons. We do not link it with other data sources either. IP addresses are anonymized before storage by replacing parts of the IP address with random values. Thus, it is no longer possible to establish a link to a certain person.

The data collected is exclusively used for anonymous analysis of user behaviour with the aim of improving our website. User behaviour will not be analysed individually.


Our website uses so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your end device by the browser. They do not cause any damage and do not allow for your identification. We use cookies in order to ensure that our offer is user-friendly.

We only use cookies to store your privacy settings for our website (consent to display videos and interactive maps). For this purpose we use persistent cookies. Apart from that our website does not use any cookies.

Persistent cookies allow recognition of your browser when you visit our website again. They are stored on your terminal device and will be deleted automatically after a certain period of time. You may also delete them yourself.

We do not store third-party cookies which could allow tracing your user behaviour across several independent websites.

You can set your browser to notify you when a cookie is set or to allow cookies only in individual cases. Please see your web browser menu bar for further support.


On our website you can subscribe to a newsletter. For this purpose we require your email address and your consent to receiving the newsletter.

If you subscribe to our newsletter, we will send you a confirmation email including a link. By clicking on the link you can confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter and that your email address is correct. Only after the confirmation process has been completed will the newsletter be sent to the email address advised.

You may unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. Please send your unsubscribe request to the following email address: We will then delete your data relating to distribution of the newsletter immediately.

Further details on data protection with regard to our newsletter can be found here.

Spare parts inquiries

You may request information on spare parts via our website. For spare parts inquiries, we collect your name, the company name, email address, phone number, country, machine type, machine number, number, and quantity of spare parts. Your data will be retained for the duration of the business relation. It will be deleted three years from the last contact at the latest.

Web analysis

Improving our offer and our website (legitimate interest) is a major concern to us. We value our users’ privacy and, therefore, we pseudonymize your user data.


The website uses the Matomo open source tool for web analysis. Matomo normally uses cookies that enable a statistical analysis of use of the website. For this purpose the usage information is sent and your IP address is immediately anonymised. No personal data is therefore stored for statistical analysis.

Matomo Privacy Policy

No Matomo cookie is set on this website and no personal data is stored for statistical analysis.

Processing of the data is based on Article 6(1)(a) GDPR. In this way we pursue our legitimate interest in optimising our website for our external presentation.

Use of OpenStreetMaps

For displaying interactive maps we use the open source map service “OpenStreetMap” of the organization OpenStreetMap Foundation, 132 Maney Hill Road, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, B72 1JU, United Kingdom.

When displaying the maps the following data is transmitted to the servers of OpenStreetMaps: the address of our internet pages that you have visited and the IP address of your terminal device.

Processing of the data is based on Article 6(1)(a) GDPR. The legal basis for this is your consent, which is requested before an interactive map is viewed for the first time.

For more information on the handling of user data see the Privacy Policy of OpenStreetMaps:
