Security and protection of your personal data

We consider it our primary task to maintain the confidentiality of the personal data provided by you and to protect it from unauthorized access. We therefore exercise the utmost care and apply state-of-the-art security standards to ensure maximum protection of your personal data.

As a company under private law, we are subject to the provisions of the European Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that the regulations on data protection are observed both by us and by our external service providers.

Definitions

The legislator requires that personal data be processed lawfully, in good faith and in a manner understandable to the data subject (“lawfulness, fairness, transparency”). To ensure this, we inform you of the individual legal definitions that are also used in this Privacy Policy:

  1. Personal data “personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as ‘data subject’); a natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, online identifier or one or more specific characteristics which express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person, is regarded as identifiable.
  2. Processing “processing” means any operation or set of operations which is carried out in relation to personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, sorting, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or association, qualification, erasure or destruction.
  3. Restriction of processing “Limitation of processing” means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
  4. Profiling “Profiling” means any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, whereabouts or movements of that natural person.
  5. Pseudonymisation “pseudonymisation” means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the provision of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures ensuring that the personal data cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
  6. File system “file system” means any structured collection of personal data accessible according to specific criteria, whether centralised, decentralised or organised on a functional or geographical basis.
  7. Responsible Person “Responsible person” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for his designation may be laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States.
  8. Processors “Processor’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
  9. Recipients “Recipient’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation task under Union law or the law of the Member States shall not be considered as recipients and the processing of such data by those authorities shall be carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection rules and in accordance with the purposes of the processing.
  10. Third Parties “Third party’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body, other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.

Consent The data subject’s ‘consent’ shall mean any voluntary, informed and unambiguous expression of his or her will in the particular case, in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act, by which the data subject indicates his or her consent to the processing of his or her personal data.

Lawfulness of the processing

The processing of personal data is only lawful if there is a legal basis for the processing. According to Article 6 (1) lit. a – f DSGVO, the legal basis for the processing can in particular be:

  1. The data subject has given his consent to the processing of his personal data for one or more specific purposes;
  2. the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the data subject;

(5) Right to cancellation (“right to be forgotten”)

  1. Personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
  2. The data subject shall revoke the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) DSGVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

The right to cancellation (“right to be forgotten”) does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary:

  • on the exercise of freedom of expression and information;
  • to fulfil a legal obligation which the processing requires under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject or to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;

Where processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, such personal data shall not be processed, except with the consent of the data subject or for the exercise or defence of legal rights or the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or of a Member State, except where they are stored.

  2. processing is carried out using automated procedures.

When exercising the right to data transfer pursuant to paragraph 1, you have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one responsible person to another responsible person, insofar as this is technically feasible.

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

As regards the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1), unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.

(9) Automated decisions on a case-by-case basis, including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to any decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has any legal effect on you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision:
