      If you are logged into Google +, Google + can directly assign your visit to our website to your Google + profile. If you interact with the plugins, e.g. by clicking on the “Like” button or leaving a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a Google + server and stored there. The information is also published on your Google + profile and can be viewed by your Google + contacts who you have authorised to do so.

In the context of business relationships, we collect, process and store personal data only insofar as this is necessary for the initiation and / or execution of the respective business relationship or for the fulfillment of our contractual obligations to you, and only insofar as this is permitted by applicable legal provisions or we are obliged to.

The provision of your personal data is always voluntary. However, the collection, processing and storage of certain personal data is usually required to initiate and / or conduct the business relationship. Below we explain what happens to this data:

  • Scope of processing of personal data
    The data provided by you in the course of the business relationship (e.g. contact details of the contact(s), i.e. salutation, name, business address, telephone number and e-mail address, banking and billing data, master data changes initiated by you).
    Further personal data (e.g. name and business address of the managing directors and shareholders) from publicly available sources (e.g. commercial register, authorities, web), as far as this is legally permissible, for example because this is necessary for the provision of our services.
  • Legal basis for the processing of personal data
    Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR (fulfillment of contract or execution of pre-contractual measures), if the processing is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract concluded with you or for the execution of pre-contractual measures upon your request.
    Incidentally, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (legitimate interests). Our legitimate interest is the initiation and proper execution of the respective business relationship.
  • Purpose of data processing
    Initiation and / or implementation of the business relationship.
  • Storage period
    The deletion of the data takes place after final termination of the business relationship, insofar as there are no statutory, especially commercial or tax-related retention periods (e.g. §147 AO and §257 HGB). In these cases, the deletion of the data takes place at the end of the (last) statutory period..
  • Option to object and erase
    The options to object and erase are based on the general regulations outlined below in this Privacy Policy concerning the rights to object and erase as set out in data protection law.

9. Data security and data protection, communication by email

Your personal data is protected by technical and organisational measures in such a way that it cannot be accessed by third parties when it is collected, stored or processed. During unencrypted communication by email, we cannot guarantee that data is fully protected when being transferred to our IT systems. Therefore, we recommend using encrypted communication or the postal service if the information needs to be kept highly confidential.

10. Revocation of consent – data requests and change requests – erasure and blocking of data

You are entitled to obtain information on your stored data free of charge in reasonable intervals and you have the right to have your data rectified, blocked or erased at any time. We will erase your data upon first request, provided it is not subject to any statutory regulations that prevent this. You can revoke at any time the consent that you already provided us with for using your personal data. You can request to obtain information or to erase or rectify your data and inform us of any complaints or providing any advice by contacting us at the following address at any time:

11. Right to Data Portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to demand that we transmit those data to a third party at first request, where the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) or point (a) of Article 9(2) or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) and the processing on our part is carried out by automated means.

In exercising your right to data portability, you also have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This right shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

The right to data portability does not apply to processing 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.

12. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in line with Article 77 (1) GDPR

If you suspect that the processing of your personal data on our website violates legal provisions, you can initiate a judicial clarification of the issue at any time.

You also have the right to lodge a complaint in the EU member state where you are based or where your working premises are based and/or where the alleged violation has taken place, i.e. you can select which supervisory authority to contact from amongst the places mentioned above. The supervisory authority that receives your complaint will advise you about the status and results of your submission, including the possibility of a judicial remedy in line with Article 78 GDPR.
