our profiles in social media.

1.2 Scope of data processing, processing purposes and legal basis

The scope of data processing, processing purposes and legal bases are explained in detail below. In principle, the following come into consideration as the legal basis for data processing:

  • 6 (1) sentence 1 it. a DSGVO serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent.
  • 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DS GVO is the legal basis insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract, e.g. if a site visitor purchases a product from us or we perform a service for him. This legal basis also applies to processing that is necessary for pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services.
  • 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO applies if we fulfil a legal obligation with the processing of personal data, as may be the case, for example, in tax law.
  • 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis if we can invoke legitimate interests to process personal data, e.g. for cookies that are necessary for the technical operation of our website.

1.3 Data processing outside the EEA

Insofar as we transfer data to service providers or other third parties outside the EEA, the security of the data during the transfer is guaranteed, where available (e.g. for Canada and Israel), by adequacy decisions of the EU Commission (Art. 45 Ab. 3 DSGVO).

If no adequacy decision exists (e.g. for the USA), standard contractual clauses are the legal basis for the data transfer as a rule, i.e. unless we indicate otherwise. These are a set of rules adopted by the EU Commission and are part of the contract with the respective third party. According to Art. 46 para. 2 lit. b DSGVO, they guarantee the security of the data transfer. Many of the providers have given contractual guarantees that protect the data beyond the standard contractual clauses. These are, for example, guarantees regarding the encryption of the data or regarding an obligation on the part of the third party to notify data subjects if law enforcement bodies want to access data.

The transfer of data to third parties in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is currently based on the transitional arrangement in the Trade and Cooperation Agreement between the European Union and the United Kingdom.

1.4 Storage period

Unless expressly stated within the scope of this data protection declaration, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations. If the data is not deleted because it is required for other and legally permissible purposes, its processing is restricted, i.e. the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that we must retain for reasons of commercial or tax law.

1.5 Rights of the data subjects

Data subjects have the following rights vis-à-vis us with regard to the personal data concerning them:

  • Right to information
  • Right to correction or deletion
  • Right to restriction of processing
  • Right to object to processing
  • Right to data portability
  • Right to revoke consent given at any time.

Data subjects also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of their personal data.

1.6 Obligation to provide data

Within the scope of a business relationship or other relationship, customers, interested parties or third parties only have to provide us with the personal data that is required for the establishment, implementation and termination of the business relationship or other relationship or which we are legally obliged to collect. Without this data, we will usually have to refuse to conclude a contract or provide a service or will no longer be able to perform an existing contract or other relationship.

Mandatory data are marked as such.

1.7 No automated decision-making in individual cases

For the establishment and implementation of a business relationship or other relationship, we generally do not use fully automated decision-making pursuant to Article 22 DSGVO. Should we use these procedures in individual cases, we will provide separate information on this, insofar as this is required by law.

1.8 Contacting us

When contacting us, e.g. by e-mail or telephone, the data provided to us (e.g. names and e-mail addresses) will be stored by us in order to answer questions. The legal basis for the processing is our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO) in answering enquiries directed to us. We delete the data accruing in this context after storage is no longer necessary or restrict processing if there are legal obligations to retain data.

1.9 Sweepstakes

3. Data processing on social media platforms

We are represented on social media networks in order to present our company and our services there. The operators of these networks regularly process data of their users for advertising purposes. Among other things, they create user profiles from their online behaviour, which are used, for example, to show advertising on the pages of the networks and elsewhere on the Internet that corresponds to the interests of the users. For this purpose, the operators of the networks store information on user behaviour in cookies on the users’ computers. Furthermore, it cannot be ruled out that the operators merge this information with other data. Users can obtain further information and instructions on how to object to processing by the site operators in the data protection declarations of the respective operators listed below. It is also possible that the operators or their servers are located in non-EU countries, so that they process data there. This can result in risks for users, e.g. because it is more difficult to enforce their rights or because government agencies have access to the data.

If users of the networks contact us via our company profiles, we process the data provided to us in order to respond to the enquiries. This is our legitimate interest, so that the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
