Erasure of data and archiving obligations

The data processed by us will be erased or its processing restricted in accordance with Articles 17 and 18 GDPR. Unless expressly stated in this Privacy Policy, the data stored by us will be erased as soon as it is no longer required for its intended purpose and there are no legal obligations to retain it. If the data are not erased because they are necessary for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing is restricted. This means that the data is excluded and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained for commercial or taxation reasons.

In accordance with statutory requirements, the records shall be kept for 6 years in particular in accordance with § 257 (1) German Commercial Code (trading books, inventories, opening balance sheets, annual financial statements, commercial letters, accounting documents, etc.) and for 10 years in accordance with § 147 (1) German Financial Act (books, records, management reports, accounting documents, commercial and business letters, documents relevant to taxation, etc.).

Changes and Updates to this Privacy Policy

We ask you to keep yourself regularly informed about the contents of our Privacy Policy. We will adapt the Privacy Policy as soon as any changes in data processing carried out by us make this necessary. We will inform you as soon as the changes require your cooperation (e.g. consent) or other individual notification.

Relevant Legal Basis for the Processing;

In accordance with Art. 13 GDPR, we inform you of the legal basis of our data processing. If the legal basis is not explicitly stated in the Privacy Policy, the following applies: The legal basis for obtaining consents is Art. 6 (1) lit. a and Art. 7 GDPR, the legal basis for processing for the performance of our services and performance of contractual measures as well as for answering inquiries is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, the legal basis for processing to fulfil our legal obligations is Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR, and the legal basis for processing to protect our legitimate interests is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

The principles for commercial communications outside of business relations, in particular by post, telephone, fax and e-mail, are contained in § 7 of the German Unfair Competition Act (UWG).

Security of Data Processing

We shall take appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk in accordance with Article 32 GDPR, taking into account the state of the art, the costs of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risk of varying likelihood and severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons; the measures include in particular ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical access to the data, as well as the access, input, transfer, integrity and pseudonymity. Furthermore, we have established procedures that guarantee the assertion of data subjects' rights, the erasure of data and the response to data hazards. Furthermore, we already consider the protection of personal data during the development or selection of hardware, software and procedures, in accordance with the principle of data protection by design of technology and by data protection-friendly presettings (Art. 25 GDPR).

The security measures include in particular the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and our server.

Employees are bound to confidentiality with regard to data protection, are instructed, monitored, and informed of possible liability consequences.

Disclosure and Transmission of Data

If we disclose data to other persons and companies (processors or third parties) within the scope of our processing, transfer the data to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only be carried out on the basis of a legal permission (e.g. if a transfer of the data to third parties, such as to payment service providers, is required for contract fulfilment pursuant to Art. 6 (1), lit. b GDPR), if you have consented, if a legal obligation requires this or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosting services, etc.).

If we commission third parties with the processing of data on the basis of a so-called " Data Processing Agreement", this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.

If we disclose, transfer or otherwise grant access to data to other companies in our Group of Companies (Undertakings), this is done in particular for administrative purposes as a legitimate interest and in addition on the basis of an Data Processing Agreement.

Transfers to Third Countries

If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this occurs in the context of the use of third-party services or disclosure or transmission of data to third parties, this only takes place if it is necessary to fulfil our (pre)contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or let the data being processed in a third country only if the special requirements of Art. 44 ff. GDPR are met.

Section III - Processing operations

The following section provides an overview of our processing activities, which we have subdivided into other areas of operation. Please note that the areas of operation are for guidance only and that processing activities may overlap (e.g. the same data may be processed in several operations).

The Key Area of Data Processing

In this section you will find information on our key services and operations, such as responding to enquiries and providing our contractual services as well as the associated ancillary tasks.

 

Contractual services

Furthermore, data resulting from the use of our services are processed (so-called usage or metadata, such as functions and content used or information on user devices).

If we evaluate the interests or behaviour of users, this will lead to a needs-oriented design of our Online Services. For example, users are provided with content or functions that correspond to the content and functions previously used. For this purpose, we use data that we obtain about users in accordance with this Privacy Policy and analyse it with the aid of algorithmic functions. This can result in the formation of user profiles. This analysis is only for our purposes, the results will not be passed on to third parties.

Application process

We would like to point out that data of users outside the European Union and the Switzerland may be processed. This can pose risks for users because, for example, the enforcement of users' rights could be made more difficult. With regard to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that they undertake to comply with the data protection standards of the EU and Switzerland.

Furthermore, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, for example, user profiles can be created from the user behaviour and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user's computer, in which the user's usage behaviour and interests are stored. Furthermore, data can also be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to these).

The processing of users' personal data is based on our legitimate interests in effective user information and communication with users. If the users are asked by the respective providers for a consent to the data processing (i.e. declare their consent e.g. by ticking a checkbox or confirming a button), the legal basis of the processing is a consent.

For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the information provided by the providers linked below.

Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, then please contact us.
