Welcome to our website. The privacy of your data is very important to us. Therefore, we will explain below how we process your personal data.
Categories of data; data sources
Basically, we process the personal data that you provide to us in the context of a request, a pre-contractual relationship or a contractual relationship. In individual cases and insofar as this is necessary within the framework of the fulfilment of the contract, we also process personal data that has been taken from publicly available sources (eg trade register, debt directories, Internet) in a permissible manner or is permitted by third parties (eg credit reference agencies). were transmitted.
This may be personal data (name, birthday, legally authorized representative), address data (address, e-mail address, contact person), financial data (name of the account holder, IBAN, BIC), contract data (contract duration, services purchased, cancellations), Communication data (correspondence, e-mail traffic), advertising data (advertising letters) and other comparable categories of personal data.
Processing of personal data after consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) GDPR)
In individual cases, we will obtain consent from you for specific purposes expressly identified in connection with data collection (eg request via a contact form).
A data processing takes place only if you give us the consent. It is possible that the processing of your request without your consent is not possible and therefore must be made dependent on it. The processing of the data takes place exclusively for the purpose (s) expressly stated.
You can revoke your consent with effect for the future at any time. The revocation has no influence on the legality of the processing until the time of revocation.
Processing of personal data for the execution of contracts (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) GDPR)
If a contract is concluded with us, we use personal data as far as this is necessary for the execution of the contract or for the execution of pre-contractual measures. The purposes of the data processing are based on the concrete contract contents, which you can refer to the contract documents.
If a contract already exists between us, we process your data in order to verify that you are our contractual partner and in order to properly provide the contractual service owed.
Processing of personal data in the context of a balance of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR)
We process personal data according to balance of interests, as far as this is necessary for the protection of our legitimate interests or the interests of third parties.
Examples of such purposes are:
- Ensuring the IT security and integrity of our systems,
- Analysis and improvement of our online services,
- Prevention and investigation of criminal offences,
- Assertion or defense of legal claims.
Cross-border data transmission (Art. 49 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) GDPR)
Where personal data are transmitted to a third country, we comply with the relevant data protection guidelines for this by transmitting your data generally on the basis of standard contractual clauses and by obtaining your consent to this in accordance with lit. a) of Article 49 para. 1 p. 1 GDPR.
Data are transmitted in particular in connection with the use of Google services. The use of these services results in the transmission of data to the United States of America.
The data will only be transmitted if you have given us your consent.
The specific details of the recipient, the personal data transmitted and the purpose of the forwarding of the data can be found in the remarks on the respective processing below.
The forwarding of your data poses a risk to your personal data. The United States of America do not provide for a level of data protection comparable to that under EU law (GDPR) and / or national guidelines (e.g. BDSG) or adequate guarantees to ensure a sufficient level of data protection. Moreover, due to the US legal situation, possible deficits cannot be compensated by other specific guarantees. Nevertheless, depending on the service concerned, standard contract clauses are used in some cases to achieve the maximum possible protection for your data. To find out whether standard contractual clauses are used, please refer to the explanations provided for each service.
You may withdraw your given consent at any time with effect for the future. The withdrawal has no effect on the lawfulness of the processing up to the time of the withdrawal. Since settings for the transfer of your data are not stored on our website, a withdrawal can be exercised by merely reloading the website.
If you contact us by e-mail or via phone, we will process the personal data you have provided to answer your request. We delete the data after the final processing of your request, if there is no contractual or statutory retention obligation.
If you send us a request via our contact form, we process the data provided by you on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 a) GDPR to handle your request. Basically, your data will be deleted after processing the request, provided that there is no contractual or statutory retention obligation. If you provide us with contractually relevant information, we will transfer it to our existing system.
Your consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future on all specified contact details.
This website uses Matomo, a open-source web analytics service. For this purpose, we collect certain data about how you access our website and how you use it. This includes, for example, the time and duration of access and whether you use our website with a smartphone or a PC. In addition, some other purely technical data such as operating system, screen resolution, type of web browser and the language and country from which you are accessing the site are recorded. Your IP address is immediately anonymized, so that an individual assignment of the stored data is not possible. The data is stored exclusively on our servers and is not transmitted to third parties.
You can prevent the processing of data by Matomo by clicking on the following checkbox.
Plugins of the social network YouTube are implemented on our website. The provider of YouTube is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("YouTube").
We rely on your consent for the collection of personal data in the context of the use of plugins.
If you consent to the processing of your data by the "YouTube" plugin by clicking on the "Show video" button, the processing of your data is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) GDPR, so that we use your personal data to the extent of the consent you have given for the purpose of providing a connection to YouTube.
When embedding the YouTube plugin, we use a button to activate the plugin as well as the "extended data protection mode" offered by the platform. This means that your browser does not establish a direct connection with YouTube's servers unless you activate the YouTube PlugIn by clicking the "Show Video" button. Cookies are not set even after activating the PlugIn. The content of the PlugIn is then transmitted by YouTube to your browser and integrated by it into the website. By activating the PlugIn, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. Content is then transmitted by YouTube to your browser and included on the page. This happens even in the event that you do not have a profile on YouTube or are not logged in. Personal data (including your IP address) is then automatically forwarded to a YouTube server located in the USA and then stored. The transfer of data to the USA is permissible based on your consent in accordance with Art. 49 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) GDPR.
A direct assignment to your person on the side of YouTube only takes place if you are logged in to YouTube. Further details on how YouTube handles your personal data can be found on the following page: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.
If you register for our newsletter, we process the data you provide based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a) DSGVO to send you our newsletter on a regular basis. To register, it is sufficient to provide an e-mail address. The other information is provided voluntarily. For legal reasons, we also store the IP address and the date of registration.
Our newsletter is sent using the service provider CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Schafjückenweg 2, 26180 Rastede, with whom we have concluded an order processing agreement. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for registration, in which you must explicitly confirm your e-mail address again in a second step after giving your consent to receive the newsletter. Only then will the service be activated. In this context, your data will be stored exclusively in the EU area. The data is used exclusively for sending the newsletter. There is no independent use of data by the service provider.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. A link for revocation can be found at the end of each newsletter e-mail. Of course, you can also revoke your consent via the other contact options offered.
Your data processed within the scope of the newsletter dispatch will be deleted 3 months after termination of the newsletter subscription, insofar as the retention does not conflict with legal retention obligations.
