SBA protects personal information.

Data protection is essentially based on the provisions of the EU GDPR and is integrated into the company’s quality management.

In principle, personal data from the European Economic Area is only stored and used within the European Economic Area.

In this way, we ensure transparent and responsible handling of personal data and give those affected the opportunity to exert influence. SBA has implemented physical and procedural precautions to protect stored data from access by unauthorized persons and to respond appropriately and correctly in emergencies.

Our privacy policy applies to our websites, our operations and storage locations for data.

In accordance with the data protection regulations applicable in your country, you may exercise your rights to access, rectify, delete, or object to the transfer of your data by notifying our data protection officer.

Third Party Sites

SBA also places links to third-party websites or social media on its websites. When you go to these third-party sites or social media, you are no longer on an SBA website. SBA assumes no responsibility for the content of this website / social media, nor does it endorse any content of this website / social media. These websites/social media have different privacy policies that are beyond SBA’s control.

SBA is also active on social media and in this way also obtains personal data from people who are active on these social media.

We call on users of social media to find out exactly and independently about the rules for handling data there and to decide for themselves the extent of their shared data.

SBA uses personal data within the scope of the legally limited possibilities to create individual offers or to find cooperation partners.

The following interactions can lead to the generation of personal data:


Information or quota requests


Registrations, eg for newsletters, events, surveys, etc.

Correspondence or transmission of business cards, complaints

Contacts on social media or website visits

The following data may be transmitted:

Contact details with names and addresses, email addresses, telephone and fax numbers

Information on employment relationships and positions, skills, authorities, etc.

Personal preferences, eg about products

Personal payment processing data such as bank and credit card details

Personal IDs and passwords, IP addresses, location data, photos, contacts to other network partners, profiles

Browser type, language, access times, clickstream data, previously visited websites,

We assume that as a user of the Internet and social media you are aware that your published personal data will be read and possibly used by third parties, for example to contact you. SBA is not responsible for and cannot influence what information you choose to publish or not.

The above-mentioned information may also be collected when you visit our websites or news on social media. We sometimes use common data collection instruments, for example when opening an email or clicking on a link, cookies, web links or web beacons, which collect information about the data traffic that your browser sends to a website.

If you do not want this, please use the security settings of your operating system or browser or other appropriate measures. However, refusing our data collection can also lead to restrictions, for example that you will no longer receive information about updates.

SBA also does not rule out the possibility that commercially available data will be used in combination with its own data within the scope of legal possibilities in order to present its own products and services in a more customer-friendly manner and to be economically successful.

SBA generally only uses data for its own purposes and does not pass it on to third parties for commercial reasons. However, it is not excluded that data will be passed on to subcontractors of SBA who then work for SBA, eg courier services for shipping goods, tax offices, experts, marketing service providers, IT providers, etc. SBA also passes on data for legal reasons, for example to authorities, this should be required.

SBA is not responsible for independent data collection by subcontractors or service providers. Since this happens independently of SBA, despite any knowledge of SBA, the data protection regulations of the third parties and not those of SBA apply to these measures.
