(d) Functions with use of cookies following your consent

Below is an overview of the functions which we use on receiving your consent when you start using our website. These are functions which are used for advertising purposes and use cookies for this purpose.

Use of cookies for advertising purposes

We use functions which deploy cookies for marketing purposes, e.g. in order to tailor advertising to the interests of a website user. They are also used to limit the frequency with which ads are displayed and to measure the effectiveness of an ad. They record which websites and which items are clicked. This enables us to record information about user habits in order to provide interest-based advertising. The advertising networks used may share this information with third parties. In such cases, the advertising partner regularly sets the cookies directly.

The following functions are used for advertising purposes in particular:

(1) Use of Google Ads /Google Remarketing

We use the service of Google Ads to draw attention on external websites to our attractive products by using advertising tools (so-called Google advertising). These advertising tools are delivered by Google by means of so-called "ad servers." Ad server cookies that allow for the analysis of performance parameters are used in this process, e.g. ad impressions, clicks and conversations. This allows us to determine how successful individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns.

If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will save a cookie on your end device. These cookies are not intended to identify you personally. By means of the integration of the cookies, Google is informed that you have visited the corresponding page of our website or have clicked on one of our advertisements by including tracking tools. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can allocate the visit to your account. Even if you have not registered with Google or are not logged in, it is possible that the provider finds out and saves your IP address. With the company's conversion remarketing technologies, users who have already visited our website and online services and shown interest in our products will see further related advertisements on other websites in the Google Partners network. As a rule, the following analysis values are also saved:

  • Unique cookie ID
  • Number of ad impressions per placing (frequency)
  • Last impression (relevant to post-view conversions)
  • Opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wants to be contacted)

The cookies set by Google enable Google to recognize your Internet browser once again in the future. If a user visits certain pages of a website of an Ads customer and the cookie that has been saved on his or her end device has not expired, Google and the customer can detect that the user has clicked the advertisement and was forwarded to this site. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads customer, so that cookies cannot be traced via the websites of Ads customers. Your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server based on the marketing tools deployed. We ourselves do not independently gather personal data during the named advertising measures, rather we only provide Google with the possibility of obtaining the data. In this respect, we are jointly responsible with Google for the data gathering and transfer. Google is responsible under data protection laws for the subsequent data processing. We are only provided with statistical analysis by Google. This analysis allows us to identify which of the deployed advertising measures are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the deployment of advertising measures, and, in particular, we are not able to identify users based on this information. The legal basis for processing your data is Article 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR.

Please note that Google may process data outside of the area of the European Union. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has undertaken to comply with a standard which corresponds to the former EU-US Privacy Shield. We have also agreed so-called standard contractual clauses with Google, the purpose of which is compliance with a reasonable level of data protection in the third country.

We use Google Ads with the Google Remarketing function in order to provide you with advertising which is tailored to your interests. This application enables displaying our advertising when you are visiting other websites after visiting our website. This is accomplished with the use of cookies that are saved in your browser via which your utilization behavior is captured and analyzed by Google when you visit various websites. This enables Google to determine your previous visit to our website. According to Google, the data collected within the scope of remarketing is not combined with your personal data that may have been saved by Google. In particular, according to Google, pseudonymization is used during remarketing. You can prevent the remarketing function by not consenting to its use and also by revoking your consent subsequently, as described in the paragraph below. The legal basis is your consent in accordance with Article 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR.

Should you not wish for advertising which is tailored to your interests to be displayed after you have issued your consent or should you not wish for the remarketing function to be used, you can revoke your consent in our cookie settings or de-activate this in your browser cookies. You can also notify Google of this directly for the future via the following link: In addition, you can object to the Google remarketing via the website of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI): Alternatively, you can de-activate the use of cookies by third-party providers by accessing the de-activation site of the Network Advertising Initiative ( or administering the use of the device identifiers via the device settings ( Further information of the provider can be found at Full information concerning data protection at Google can be found on their website at and

(2) Integration of YouTube videos into our website

On individual websites, we have integrated YouTube videos which are saved at and can be played back directly on our website. These videos are included in the "extended data protection mode," i.e. no data about you as a user will be transmitted to YouTube unless you play back the videos. The below data is only transmitted when you play back the videos. We cannot influence this data transmission.

By playing back the embedded videos, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page on our website, and it is furthermore possible that other data is transmitted to YouTube of which we have no knowledge. This will occur regardless of whether YouTube has provided a user account through which you have logged in or if no user account exists. If you are logged into YouTube, your data will be directly allocated to your account. If you do not want this allocation to your profile with YouTube, you must log out before you activate the button. YouTube saves your data as utilization profiles and uses it for the purposes of advertisements, market research and/or the needs-compliant design of its website. Such an analysis can be carried out (even for users that are not logged in) especially for providing needs-compliant advertisements and to inform other YouTube users about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. Such requests must be addressed to YouTube.

LinkedIn also processes your personal data in the USA and has undertaken to comply with a standard which corresponds to the former EU-US Privacy Shield. Further information concerning the purpose and scope of the data gathering, the subsequent processing and the safeguarding of the data transfer to a third country can be found in the data protection policy of YouTube. This is also where you will find further information about your rights and setting options to protect your privacy: The legal basis of the processing of your data for the purposes referred to above is your consent in accordance with Article 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time. The easiest way to do this is to de-select the function in our cookie settings.

(3) Integration of Google Maps

It is necessary to process your IP address and further utilization data in order to use the functions of Google Maps. This information is normally sent to a Google server in the US and stored there. The provider of this page cannot influence this data transmission. Google can connect the utilization data with other data and assign it to your Google account, should you be logged in to this.

Google Maps is used for the purpose of providing an attractive online service and helping to easily find the locations given on our website. This represents a legitimate interests in accordance with the legal basis being used, Article 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR.

III. Data protection information for customers and interested parties of SEW-EURODRIVE

1. Scope of data processing and designated uses

a) Contract performance

SEW-EURODRIVE processes the data that we receive from you as part of your inquiries or existing contractual relationships. In addition to your business contact details, this comprises all information that is exchanged, such as e-mails, orders, requests for our products, and payment details. If you have business relationships with us, you must provide the personal data that is necessary for preparation or performance of the contracts or that we are legally required to process; otherwise we cannot fulfill the contracts.

SEW-EURODRIVE processes the data provided during order placement for use in fulfillment of the contract and may employ specialized and monitored service providers for this purpose. Processing of the data for the purpose of contract fulfillment comprises using the data to render the service stipulated by the contract, including rendering of services defined in service agreements or handling of any warranty claims. In addition, if a request for financing is made, the data required for generating a quotation may be used by SEW-EURODRIVE and, if necessary, passed on to contractual partners. Further details regarding the purposes of use can be found in the relevant contractual documents. This data processing is carried out based on Article 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR.

Data collected by SEW-EURODRIVE regarding the purchase of our products or use of our services may also be passed on to the external auditors and/or tax consultants of SEW-EURODRIVE for consulting and verification purposes. SEW-EURODRIVE may save the data collected for fulfillment of the contract in its operative system for a period of time even after the contractual relationship has been terminated, if such storage is necessary in order to administrate possible warranties and limitation periods of complaints or handle possible legal claims related to the contract. It may also be necessary for SEW-EURODRIVE to store personal data generally, in order to fulfil legal obligations regarding, for example, accounting or tax. Data that is subject to such storage are deleted once these time periods and obligations expire. All other data is deleted immediately, unless this declaration specifies other designated uses for this data. Data is processed for warranty claims in accordance with Article 6(1)(1)(b) GDPR, and for fulfillment of legal obligations in accordance with Article 6(1)(1)(c) GDPR. Further, data is processed in order to handle complaints or possible legal claims related to the contract, based on our legitimate interest to ensure and defend our legal rights, in accordance with Article 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR.

b) Verification of address and credit

To verify your address and credit rating, SEW-EURODRIVE accesses databases from external agencies in order to gather address details and credit data about your company, including data that was calculated using statistical methods (scoring). This gathering is done as long as SEW-EURODRIVE is undertaking a commercial risk in concluding the contract and seeks to safeguard itself through this credit check. This information is used by SEW-EURODRIVE to grant trade credit for goods or services. Addresses and credit data from, Patent- och registreringsverket (PRV) etc. is used to provide information.

The information provided by the agencies and the internal information regarding payment behavior are internally evaluated by SEW-EURODRIVE, which then creates its own rating for use as a basis for granting a credit limit. The credit data is deleted 5 years after the last delivery of goods. This mode of data processing is performed in accordance with Article 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR in order to grant you trade credit for goods and services.

c) Promotional use of data by SEW-EURODRIVE

SEW-EURODRIVE and engaged service providers (printing companies, lettershops, etc.) use your name and address as a contact person in ongoing business relationships or of interested persons for additional measures for entering into and activating business partnerships. This includes the sending of advertising by post in relation to interesting products and services, so that potential customers and business partners can become aware of products which may be of interest and in order to form a long-term business relationship. Last but not least, we would like to stay in touch with you on special occasions and send you Christmas greetings, for example. SEW-EURODRIVE uses your telephone number for promotional purposes only if you have given your consent or if consent can be reasonably presumed – for example, within an existing business relationship or after previous contact. SEW-EURODRIVE also uses your e-mail address which was obtained from the contact persons during the conclusion of contracts in order to advertise similar products and services. In all other cases, we only use your e-mail address for advertising purposes with your separate consent. Of course, you have the right to refuse these promotional contacts. We notify you of your right to object to advertising in each separate case.

Furthermore, SEW-EURODRIVE processes the data collected within the framework of the business relationship (contact information, product purchases, services ordered) and obtained when the services on the website are used, at trade fairs or during other advertising campaigns (use of data when accessing the website or when participating in advertising campaigns, as well as the voluntary information which you disclose when using the website) in order to provide you with offers which are tailored to your interests. By means of the above, we use the data which is collected over the course of the business relationship and the data which is obtained when using services in order to inform you of offers, information and current developments in relation to our products and services which may be of interest. Thereby SEW-EURODRIVE provides further information concerning products and services of the EURODRIVE Group. By means of this data processing, we can showcase the products and services which we think may be of interest to you by means of personalized offers (website, e-mail or postal advertising).

We may also send you - as an existing customer or if we have otherwise received your contact details - information in relation to special promotions, events or trade fair events by post within the framework described above. In this case, you will receive post from us with information about the specific campaign and how you can participate and what information you must issue us with. We will then often register your participation via an event-related website and process your data for the stated purposes indicated, for example to provide the products offered or send you information. We may use the information received as part of the processing described here. At the time of selection and sending of the initial information, your data is processed on the basis of a consideration of our interests, Article 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR; when you participate in a campaign and register, your data is processed for the performance of the contract, in accordance with Article 6(1)(1)(b) GDPR.

As a rule, your data is saved in the EU for advertising purposes. Thereby we can use service providers whom we have carefully inspected and audited. Should data be transferred to and processed on servers in third countries outside the EU/EEA in individual cases, i.e. in particular the USA and, where applicable, the United Kingdom (UK), we use engaged and monitored service providers who have undertaken to guarantee an reasonable level of data protection and with whom the EU standard data protection clauses of the EU Commission have been agreed in principle. In individual cases, permission for data transfer may also arise under Article 49 GDPR, for example fulfillment of a contract with an international focus or if you have issued your consent.

To achieve the goals associated with this promotional usage, we process your data over the service lives of our products and as long as you remain a customer. Exceptions are made if you consent to a longer period of usage and/or if the data is subject to statutory retention obligations. In the latter case, the data is deleted after the retention period has elapsed. The processing period may be shorter if you exercise your right to object, of which we inform you in Section V.

The legal basis for this promotional usage is Article 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR or, if you have given your consent, Article 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR. We will inform you below of your rights regarding use for advertising purposes, in particular your right to object.

d) Processing of personal data due to legal obligations

SEW-EURODRIVE, like every other company in Europe, is subject to various legal obligations to verify the data of our customers and business partners. In such cases, we process your personal data only to the extent that is legally required. To fulfill these legal obligations, it may be necessary to process some of your data automatically in order to evaluate personal aspects (profiling). Unless you are expressly notified, automated individual decisionmaking is conducted. The legal basis for this processing is Article 6(1)(1)(c) GDPR (legal obligations) in conjunction with the applicable statutory provisions.

These statutory provisions relate to, in particular:

2. Distribution of data within the SEW-EURODRIVE Group

SEW-EURODRIVE may pass on your master data (company name, contact persons, address and contact details such as telephone number and e-mail address) to other companies within the SEW-EURODRIVE Group and possibly update it in order to ensure that all SEW-EURODRIVE subsidiaries involved with you in a transaction (e.g. fulfilling a contract) have the same master data. This is intended to simplify our processes and may help you avoid having to provide the master data again when contacting another company within the Group. The legal basis for this mode of data processing is Article 6(1)(1)(b) GDPR (fulfilment of contract). Your rights are safeguarded by internal contractual policies that ensure a high standard of data protection.

In addition to master data, order data, or data for the preparation of such an order in case of your inquiry,may be passed on to other SEW-EURODRIVE subsidiaries if necessary for your order. For example, different SEW-EURODRIVE products are manufactured by different SEW-EURODRIVE subsidiaries, so data may need to be transferred to simplify order processing and delivery. In such cases, you will be informed of this transfer upon conclusion of the contract. The legal basis for this processing is Article 6(1)(1)(b) GDPR (fulfilment of contract).

If your company is based outside of Sweden, an SEW-EURODRIVE subsidiary associated with us will be responsible for managing and processing your contracts or inquires. Therefore, if you wish to receive contract offers or additional information about SEW-EURODRIVE and our products, the personal information we have stored for you (in particular: name, contact details, associated company, products in which you are interested) may be transferred to the SEW-EURODRIVE subsidiary that is responsible for your company's location.
