Data protection policy

1.1. Introduction

Thank you for visiting our website. We take data protection very seriously and make every effort to protect your personal data as part of our web offering.

We understand personal data to be all data concerning a natural person’s personal and factual relationships. Personal data that are collected on our website are exclusively used for our own purposes

1.2. Legal basis for data processing

Consent: If your consent was obtained for personal data collected for processing, Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the legal basis for data processing.

Contract: When processing personal data to fulfil a contract to which you are a contractual party, Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR is the legal basis. This also applies to processing that is required to implement measures in advance of a contract.

Statutory obligation: If personal data is processed to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. c GDPR is the legal basis.

In the event that your existential interests - or those of another natural person - make the processing of personal data necessary, the legal basis is Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. d GDPR.

Justified interest: If the processing is required to maintain a justified interest of our company or a third party and the interests, basic rights, and freedoms of the affected person do not outweigh the interest stated first, Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR is the legal basis for the processing. The justified interest of our company is in implementing our business activity.

We process your data for the following company interests:

1.3. Rights of those affected

Your personal data is processed by us as part of our data processing. You have the rights from the Third Chapter of the GDPR with regard to our company.

We comply with the rights to information, correction, restriction of processing, deletion, or the ability to transfer your personal data. You can asset these rights as follows:

Right to information

You have the right to request a confirmation from us on whether we process your personal data. If this is the case, you have the right to receive information on this personal data and the following information:

a) the processing purposes;

b) the categories of personal data that were processed;

c) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data was published or will be published, in particular for recipients in third countries or international organizations;

d) if possible the planned duration for which the personal data is stored, or, if this is not possible, the criteria for setting this term;

If personal data is transferred to a third country or international organization, you have the right to be informed about suitable guarantees under Article 46 GDPR in relation to the transfer.

We provide a copy of the personal data that are subject to the processing. For all further copies that you request, we may require an appropriate fee based on the administrative costs. If you make a request for information electronically, and if you have not stated anything further, we have to provide the information in a common electronic format.

The right to receive a copy may not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other people.

Right to correction

You also have the right to request the correction without delay of incorrect personal data relating to you. Whilst taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data - even using an additional declaration.

Right to deletion (“right to be forgotten”)

You also have the right to request that we delete your personal data without delay and we are obligated to delete the data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:

a) Your affected personal data are no longer required for the purposes for which they were collected or any other processing.

b) You revoke your consent on which the processing is based as per Art. 6 I lit. a or Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

This does not apply if the processing is required a) to execute the right to freedom of expression and information; b) to fulfil a legal obligation that requires processing under the law of the Union or member states to which we are subject or to undertake a task that is in the public interest or to execute public authority that was transferred to us; c) for reasons of public interest relating to public health under Article 9 Paragraph 2 Letters h and i and Article 9 Paragraph 3; d) for archive purposes in the public interest, academic or historic research purposes, or for statistical purposes under Article 89 Paragraph 1 if the right stated in Paragraph 1 is expected to make the implementation of the objectives of this processing impossible or seriously adversely affect them, or e) to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims.

Right to restriction on processing

(1) The affected person has the right to request the restriction of processing from the person responsible if the following requirements are met:

a) the correctness of the personal data is disputed by the affected person for the duration it takes the person responsible to check the correctness of the personal data

b) the processing is illegal and the affected person rejects the deletion of the personal data and instead requests a restriction on the use of the personal data;

c) the responsible person no longer requires the personal data for the processing purposes but the affected person does require them to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims, or

d) if you have submitted an objection against the processing under Article. 21 Paragraph. 1 GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the justified reasons of the responsible person outweigh your reasons.

(3) An affected person that has brought about a restriction on processing is informed by the person responsible before the restriction is lifted.

Article 19 Notification obligation relating to the correction or deletion of personal data or restricting its processing

The person responsible informs all recipients whose personal data was published of all corrections to or deletions of the personal data or a restriction on the processing under Article 16, Article 17 Paragraph 1, and Article 18 unless this proves to be impossible or is associated with disproportionate costs. The person responsible informs the affected person about these recipients if the affected person requests this.

Article 20 Right to data transfer

(1) The affected person has the right to receive their personal data that they provided to a responsible person in a structured, common, machine-readable format and they have the right to transfer these data to another responsible person without hindrance by the person responsible to whom the person data was provided, if

(4) The right under Paragraph 2 may not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other people.

You also have the right to call on our data protection officer for advice on the stated rights and all questions related to the processing of your personal data.

In addition, our customers can also assert their complaint right to the responsible supervisory authority.

Right to objection

You have the right for reasons arising from your special situation to object to the processing of your personal data at any time as a result of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The responsible person no longer processes your personal data unless they can demonstrate binding reasons requiring protection for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights, and freedoms or the processing is used to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

2) If your personal data is processed for direct advertising purposes, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for such advertising purposes at any time; this also applies to profiling if it is in connection with direct advertising.

3) If you object to the processing for the purposes of direct advertising, your personal data is no longer processed for these purposes.

4) You have the opportunity to exercise your objection right in relation to the use of the services of the information company - notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EU - when technical specifications are used for automated processes.

5) You have the right for reasons arising from your specific situation to object to the processing of your personal data for academic, historic research, or statistical purposes under Art. 89 Para. 1 unless the processing is required in the public interest.
