General information on data processing

Scope of the processing of personal data

In principle we collect and use the personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functioning website and our content and services. As a rule the personal data of users are collected and used only after they have given their consent. An exception is made in cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for practical reasons and where processing of the data is permitted by law.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the person concerned [data subject] for processing operations containing personal data, Article 6(1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

When processing personal data necessary for the performance of a contract and the data subject is the contracting party, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6(1)(c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary for the protection of a legitimate interest of our Company or of a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

Data erasure and storage period

The personal data of the data subject are erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to be relevant. In addition, the data may be stored if provided for by the European or national legislator in Regulations, Acts or other provisions of Union law to which the controller is subject. The data is also blocked or erased when a storage period specified by the said Standards expires, saved when there is a requirement for the data to be stored further for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
 
Provision of the website and creation of log files

Description and scope of data processing

Each time our website is visited our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.

In this context the following data are collected:
(1) Information on the browser type and version used
(2) The user’s operating system
(3) The user’s Internet service provider
(4) The user’s IP address
(5) Date and time of access
(6) Websites from which the user’s system came to our website
(7) Websites accessed by the user’s system via our website

Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to allow delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this to happen the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.

This purpose is also in our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

Storage period

The data are erased as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected. When data is collected to provide the website, this is the case when the particular session has ended.

Right to object and remove

The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is vital for the operation of the website. There is therefore no opportunity for the user to object.

(8) the existence of automated decision-making including profiling pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) GDPR and – at least in these cases – meaningful information on the logic involved as well as the implications and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.

You have the right to request information on whether your own personal data are being transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context you can request information on the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Article 46 GDPR in relation to the transfer.

Right of rectification

You have a right of rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the controller if the processed personal data relating to you are incorrect or incomplete. The controller shall make the rectification immediately.

Right to restrict processing

You may request a restriction on the processing of your own personal data subject to the following conditions:
(1) if you dispute the accuracy of your own personal data for a period which makes it possible for the controller to check the accuracy of the personal data;
(2) if the processing is unlawful and you refuse erasure of the personal data, requesting instead that the use of the personal data be restricted;
(3) if the controller no longer needs the personal data for processing purposes, but you need them for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or
(4) if you have lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR and it has not yet been established whether the controller’s legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of your own personal data was restricted, these data – apart from the storage thereof – may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of substantial public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

If the restriction on processing was imposed in accordance with the aforementioned conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

Right to erasure

a) Obligation to erase:
You may request the controller to erase your own personal data immediately, and the controller is obliged to erase said data immediately if any of the following grounds apply:
(1) Your own personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
(2) You withdraw your consent on which the processing pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) GDPR was based, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
(3) Pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR you file an objection to processing and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for processing, or pursuant to Article 21(2) GDPR you file an objection to processing.
(4) Your own personal data were unlawfully processed.

b) Information to third parties:
If the controller has made your own personal data public and is obliged to erase it pursuant to Article 17(1) GDPR, he shall with regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation take appropriate measures, including those of a technical nature, to inform those responsible for data processing and processing the personal data of the fact that you as the data subject have requested them to erase all links to said personal data or copies or replications of said personal data.

c) Exemptions
There shall be no right to erasure if processing is necessary
(1) for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
(2) to meet a legal obligation which requires the processing under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
(3) on the grounds of the public interest in the sphere of public health pursuant to Article 9(2)(h) and (i) as well as Article 9(3) GDPR;
(4) for the purposes of archiving, scientific or historical research in the public interest, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) GDPR, providing the right mentioned under section a) is likely to make it impossible to achieve the goals of said processing or to seriously jeopardise them, or
(5) for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Right to information

If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing vis-à-vis the controller, the latter is obliged to inform all the recipients to whom your own personal data were disclosed of said rectification or erasure of data or restriction of processing, save when this proves impossible or involves unreasonable expense or effort.

You are entitled to be informed of these recipients by the controller.

Right to data portability

You are entitled to receive your own personal data which you provided to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer said data to another controller without obstruction from the controller to whom the personal data was supplied, providing
(1) processing is based on a consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) GDPR and
(2) processing takes place using automated procedures.

In exercising this right you further have the right to obtain the transfer of your own personal data directly from one controller to another controller if this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons shall not be adversely affected thereby.

The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

Right to object

For reasons arising from your own particular situation you have the right at any time to file an objection to the processing of your own personal data made on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The controller will cease to process your own personal data unless he can provide compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is used for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If your own personal data are processed in order to carry out direct marketing, you have the right at any time to file an objection to the processing of your own personal data for the purposes of this kind of advertising; this also applies to profiling if it is associated with such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for the purposes of direct marketing, your own personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.

In connection with the use of services of the information society – notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC – you have the option of exercising your right to object by means of automated processes in which technical specifications are used.

Right to withdrawal of the declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to withdraw your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The legitimacy of processing carried out on the basis of consent prior to withdrawal is not affected by withdrawal of consent.

Right of complaint to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your place of residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you are of the opinion that the processing of your own personal data contravenes the GDPR.

The supervisory authority with which the complaint was filed will inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78 GDPR.
