Data protection is extremely important to us. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously indeed. Below, we would like to explain to you which data will be processed and used by us, at what point of time and for what purpose.
1. Anonymous data collection and data processing
We do not use any web analysis tool on our website. Every time the website is accessed, i.e. every time a file is opened or an attempt is made to open a file on this server, data is stored in a log file.
The following is stored each time the website is accessed:
• IP address
• Name of the opened file
• Date and time of request
• Transferred data volume
• Message whether the request was successful
• Message why the request failed
• Operating system and browser software of your computer
• Website from which you visited us
The legal foundation for data processing is set out in Art. 6 (1)(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is inferred from the purposes of data collection as listed above. On no accounts will we use the data we collect to draw conclusions about you personally.
2. Collection and processing of personal data
As a general rule, we acquire personal data only if it is provided by you voluntarily. This may happen for instance if you have given your personal information during a survey, at the time of registration for personal services, during an enquiry for information material etc. The data voluntarily provided by you will be stored and processed only within Germany and only for the objectives specified in pt. 3.
We offer a newsletter to keep you up-to-date with the latest information on a variety of topics in different fields. When you subscribe, your name and email address will be used exclusively to send you the newsletter. The information is not passed on to third parties for other purposes. Your data will be stored until such time as you withdraw your consent or we are unable to send the newsletter to the email address provided by you.
3. Usage and transfer of your personal data
Transfer of your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those listed in the following does not take place.
We only transfer your data to third parties where:
• you have provided your explicit consent in this regard according to Art. 6 (1)(1)(a) GDPR;
• it is necessary according to Art. 6 (1)(1)(f) GDPR for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest that your data is not transferred;
• it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation according to Art. 6 (1)(1)(c) GDPR.
• it is lawfully permitted and necessary for the performance of a contract with you according to Art. 6 (1)(1)(b) GDPR.
4. Links to third-party websites
Only session cookies that do not contain any personal data are used.
6. Rights of data subjects
You have the right:
• according to Art. 15 GDPR to demand information about the personal data we process. In particular, you may demand information about the purposes of processing, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the envisaged period in which the data will be stored, the existence of the right to demand rectification, erasure, restriction in processing or objection, as well as the right to lodge a complaint, to know where the data was collected if not by us, and the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling and meaningful information about the logic involved;
• according to Art. 16 GDPR to demand rectification or completion of the personal data stored with us without undue delay;
• according to Art. 17 GDPR to demand erasure of the personal data stored with us, except where it is necessary for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; for compliance with a legal obligation; for reasons of public interest; or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
• according to Art. 18 GDPR to demand restriction in processing of your personal data, where the accuracy of the personal data is contested by you; the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and we no longer need the personal data, but they are required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or you have objected to processing pursuant to Article 21.
• according to Art. 20 GDPR to obtain the personal data that you have submitted to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or to transmit this data to another controller;
• according to Art. 7 (3) GDPR to revoke your consent that you have given to us at any time. This has the consequence that we will desist from processing the data to which your consent had referred, effective for the future; and
• according to Art. 77 GDPR to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. In most cases you will be able to contact the supervisory authority responsible for your habitual place of residence or work.
7. Right to object
Insofar as your data is processed based on legitimate interests according to Art. 6 (1)(1)(f) GDPR, you are entitled pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR to object to the processing of personal data concerning you, provided there are grounds relating to your particular situation or where personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes. You are always entitled to object in the latter case; we will comply with this objection without requiring that you provide particular circumstances.
To enforce your right of revocation or objection, we request that you simply send an e-mail to email@example.com .
