3)        YOUR RIGHTS

When processing your personal data, you have the following rights, which we will gladly inform you about below. You may contact us as the controller; the contact data can be found above under paragraph 1).

a. Right to information

Upon request, we will confirm to you whether your personal data will be processed. If this is the case, you have the right to be informed about the following information

    • the purpose(s) of the data processing,
    • the categories of data processed, and
    • the recipients or categories of recipients to whom data are disclosed by virtue of legal obligations or contractual relations, in particular recipients in third countries

    • the existence of a right to rectify or delete personal data relating to them, or to limit the processing by us or to object to such processing
    • the existence of a right of appeal to the supervisory authority
    • in the event that the personal data are not collected from the data subject: All available information on the origin of the data
    • the existence of automated decision making including profiling and meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended impact of such processing on the data subject.
    • in the case of a transfer to a third country or to an international organisation, the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer.

On request, you will receive a copy of the data you have collected and processed. This is generally provided free of charge.

b. Right to rectification

You have the right to request the immediate rectification of any inaccurate personal data concerning you. You have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data – also by means of a supplementary declaration – taking into account the purposes of the processing. 

c. Right to erasure (so-called Right to be forgotten)

Upon request or after fulfilment or termination of the contract with us, your personal data will be deleted immediately if this is not contrary to tax or commercial storage or documentation obligations or the safeguarding of the legitimate interests of the responsible person is at risk.

A claim for deletion exists under the following conditions:

    • The personal data were collected for such purposes or processed in any other way for which they are no longer necessary.
    • You revoke your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
    • You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR.
    • The personal data were processed unlawfully.
    • The deletion of the personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
    • The personal data were collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 para. 1 GDPR (consent given by a child).

d. Right to restriction of processing (Blocking)

Under the following conditions you have the right to demand the restriction of processing, i.e. the blocking of your personal data for processing:

    • you dispute the accuracy of the personal data for a period of time which enables us to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
    • the processing is unlawful, you refuse to delete the personal data and instead demand the restriction of the use of the personal data.
    • The data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
    • The user has lodged an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh those of the user.

e. Right to data portability
On request, your data can be made available for a fee in a structured, common and machine-readable format for you and a subsequent service provider to enable fast transmission. This applies in any case if the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 b GDPR and the processing is carried out using automated procedures.

f. Right of withdrawal of your consent (Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR)
You can revoke your consent at any time by letting us know. As a result, we may no longer continue the data processing based on this consent in the future.

g. Right to appeal to the supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR)
If you are of the opinion that there has been a violation of data protection regulations, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority. For companies in Hamburg, for example, this is the Hamburg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information: https://www.datenschutz-hamburg.de

h. Right to object (Art. 21 GDPR)
You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data. If the processing is carried out for the purpose of direct advertising (e.g. newsletter), this right exists at any time. Otherwise, the right may also exist for reasons arising from your particular situation to object to the processing of your personal data at any time. This only applies if the processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 e) or f) GDPR (protection of public interests or legitimate interests by the person responsible). We will then no longer process the personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for the processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.

In order to exercise this right of objection, you can also send us an informal message, stating your e-mail address, via the contact options mentioned under point 1, expressing your intention to object.

 

4)        LOGFILES, SERVER

If you only use the website for information purposes, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server.

We use a so-called host to provide certain services in connection with the operation of this website: in particular, IT infrastructure, computing services, database services, e-mail dispatch, security services, server storage space and technical maintenance services are provided. In doing so, we or our hosters process on our behalf inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta and communication data of our visitors to our website on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR due to our legitimate interests in a professional and secure provision of our website in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR.

5)        USE OF COOKIES

This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and function of which are explained below:

Temporary cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. These include in particular session cookies.

6)        DATA PROCESSING FOR ADVERTISING PURPOSES

Advertising with consent
We process your data for marketing purposes only on the basis of an explicit consent for these purposes in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 letter a) GDPR unless otherwise stated below.

We have entered into proper order processing agreements with service providers who we employ for the purpose of advertising delivery and who process data on our behalf strictly in accordance with instructions.

Reference to the right of revocation

You can revoke your consent at any time free of charge with effect for the future.

In order to exercise this right of revocation, you can send us an informal message via the contact options mentioned under point 1, expressing your intention to revoke. The revocation does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the point of revocation

Postal advertising

We send postal advertising for our services. If you have made personal data, such as your name, publicly accessible on the website of your company or the websites of third parties with reference to your company, your personal data may be processed if we address you by name in the advertising.

These data are processed by us exclusively for the postal sending of advertising information. The processing is based on our legitimate interests in advertising and disseminating our services to presumably interested companies, in particular directly contacting the responsible contact person (pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR). Your name and contact data are affected by this. With the exception of Deutsche Post, this data is not transmitted to other recipients by mail. This data will be deleted as soon as we no longer need you to send information to your company, at the latest, however, after the expiry of statutory retention rights.

In particular, you have the right to object to this method of advertisement (see also section 3. h.). In order to exercise this right of objection, you can send us an informal message via the contact options mentioned in section 1, expressing your intention to object.

 

7)        CONTACTING US

Ways to contact us by e-mail, post & telephone
You have the option of contacting us in several ways. By e-mail, telephone or post. If you contact us, we will use the personal data that you voluntarily provide to us for the sole purpose of contacting you and processing your enquiry.

The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR. Your data will be deleted if they are no longer needed for the purpose of processing and there is no legal obligation to store them.

 

Contact Form
A contact form is available on our website, which can be used for contacting us by electronic means. If a user makes use of this option, the data entered by you in the input mask will be transmitted to us in encrypted form and stored.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR if you have given your consent. If you have not given your individual consent, we will process your data on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 b) GDPR. The processing of personal data from the input mask serves us solely to process the establishment of contact.

 

Mandate data
If you contact us by e-mail, this data will be stored by us and added to the so-called “reference file” in accordance with § 50 of the Federal Lawyers’ Act (BRAO), insofar as it is mandate-related. Reference files must be kept for six years in accordance with the legal requirements.

The lawyer’s duty of confidentiality applies to the information you provide. This obligation refers to everything that is entrusted to us or otherwise disclosed to us within the scope of the mandate. Exceptions shall only apply if expressly agreed otherwise with you in advance or if certain information from the client relationship has already become (publicly) known.

 

(Pre)contractual services, e.g. generators

In connection with the provision of pre-contractual or contractual services, we process your data as our contractual partner or interested party in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR. Type, content, scope and purpose of the data processed by us as well as its necessity result from the respective underlying (pre-)contractual relationship. This includes the master data of our contractual partners, contact data (such as e-mail address, telephone number) as well as contract data and payment data (e.g. bank details). As a matter of principle, we do not process personal data of special categories unless these are components of a commissioned or contractual processing.

Data will be processed by us – as far as necessary – to substantiate and fulfil the agreed contractual services. This happens, for example, if you use a generator on our website. Insofar as this is not obvious, we point this out to our customers. Data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract. Within the scope of using our online services, we can save the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage is based on our legitimate interests and to protect against misuse and other unauthorized use. This data will not be passed on to third parties unless the pursuit of claims requires this within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR or there is a legal obligation pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 c) GDPR.

The data shall be deleted if the storage of the data is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of contractual or statutory obligations and for the handling of any warranty and comparable obligations. The necessity of the data is reviewed every three years. In all other respects, the data shall be stored to the extent and for as long as legal storage obligations exist.

 

8)        TRANSFER OF DATA

The transfer to service providers shall only take place on the basis of a proper agreement on order processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR.

With the exception of the processing operations described here, we do not pass on your data to recipients domiciled outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. The processing operations mentioned here cause data to be transferred to the servers of the providers of tracking or targeting technologies commissioned by us

9)      INTEGRATION OF SERVICES AND CONTENTS OF THIRD PARTIES

Within the framework of our website, we use offers from third providers on the basis of consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR or, if consent is not given in individual cases and is not legally required, on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in evaluating the use of our website and improving the operation of our website within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR) in order to integrate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”).

This may require the respective third party providers to use your IP address, as they would not be able to send the content to your browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the delivery and display of this content. Third parties may also use so-called “pixel tags” (invisible graphic files, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to analyse the user behaviour on this website. The pseudonymous information can be stored in cookies on your device and can contain, for example, technical information about visiting times, browser and operating system, previously visited website as well as further information about the use of our website. There is no link to similar information from other sources.

If you do not want pixel tags to record your usage behavior, you can object to the data collection at any time.

We may include maps from the Google Maps service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Processed data may include, but is not limited to, IP addresses and location data of users without their consent (usually performed as part of the settings of their mobile devices). The data can be processed in the USA. You can find their data protection information at: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

You can set an opt-out under this link: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

Comments/Posts
If you leave comments or other contributions, your IP address may be stored for up to 7 days due to our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR. This is done for our security and to protect others from illegal content. In this case, we are liable as the operator of this website and would therefore like to try to identify the author. In addition, the recognition of spam and its exclusion as a legitimate interest on our part Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR is hereby made possible.

The contents indicated in the context of your comments and/or contributions are stored permanently by us until your objection, as far as no other obligation exists to the removal.

10)      APPLICANT DATA

We process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application process. The processing can also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to us electronically, for example by e-mail. If an employment contract is concluded with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If no employment contract is concluded, the application documents are automatically deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the person responsible oppose deletion.

11)      CHANGES

The controller reserves the right to adapt security and data protection measures if this becomes necessary due to technical or legal developments. In such cases, the controller will also adapt these data protection notices accordingly. Please therefore take note of the latest version of our data protection information.
