General information on data processing

1.  Scope of processing personal data

We only collect and use personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users is carried out regularly only with the user’s consent. An exception applies in those cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and the processing of data is permitted by statutory provisions.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

During the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the interests just referred to, Article 6(1)(f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

3.  Data erasure and storage period

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The processing or deletion of data shall also be restricted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

Provision of the website and creation of log files

1. Description and scope of data processing

Every time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.

The following data is collected:

(1) Information about the browser type and version used

(2) The user’s operating system

(3) the Internet service provider of the user

(4) The IP address of the user

(5) Date and time of access

(6) Websites from which the user’s system reaches our website

(7) Websites accessed by the user’s system via our website

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and, if applicable, the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. For this, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. If the data is stored in log files, this is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data enables us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. No evaluation of the data for marketing purposes takes place in this context. Our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR also lies in these purposes.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

5. Contradiction and remedy possibility

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

Website analytics

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). The use includes the “Universal Analytics” operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze a user’s activities across devices. This data protection notice is provided by www.intersoft-consulting.de.

Google Analytics uses “cookies,” which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is section 15 para. 3 TMG and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. of the General Data Protection Regulation. The data sent by us and linked with cookies, user IDs or advertising IDs will be automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month. Further information on terms of use and data protection can be found at www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html or under policies.google.com.

Newsletter

1. Description and scope of data processing

You can subscribe to a free newsletter on our website. When registering for the newsletter, the data from the input mask, the IP address of the calling computer and the date and time of registration are transmitted to us.

In the course of the registration process, your consent is obtained for the processing of the data and reference is made to this Data Protection Declaration.

If you purchase goods or services on our website and provide us with your e-mail address, we may subsequently use this to send you a newsletter. In such a case, i.e. without your express consent, the newsletter will only send direct advertising for your own similar goods or services.

In connection with data processing for the dispatch of newsletters, no data is passed on to third parties. The data will only be used for sending the newsletter.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of the data after registration for the newsletter by the user is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

The legal basis for sending the newsletter as a result of the sale of goods or services is Section 7 para. 3 UWG.

3. Purpose of data processing

The collection of the user’s e-mail address serves to send the newsletter. The collection of other personal data as part of the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. The user’s e-mail address will therefore be stored for as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active. The other personal data collected during the registration process will generally be deleted after a period of seven days.

5. Contradiction and remedy possibility

The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user concerned at any time. For this purpose, each newsletter contains a corresponding link.

Registration

1. Description and scope of data processing

On our website, we offer users the opportunity to register by providing personal data. The data is entered into an input mask and transmitted to us and saved. This data will not be passed on to third parties. The following data is collected during the registration process:

Mandatory information: First name, last name, company, street, postal code, city, telephone, e-mail.
Voluntary information: Title, function, address of the homepage.

In the course of the registration process, the user’s consent to the processing of this data is obtained.

2. Legal basis for processing

The legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR if the user has given his consent. If the registration serves the fulfilment of a contract to which the user is a party, or the implementation of pre-contractual measures, the additional legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

Registration is necessary for the provision of certain contents and services on our website, unless it serves the conclusion of a contract with the user. In addition, the user must register in order to fulfil a contract with the user or to carry out pre-contractual measures.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of a registration without a contract, this is the case for the data collected during the registration process if the registration on our website is cancelled or changed. In the case of the conclusion of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, this is the case if the data is no longer required for the implementation of the contract. Even after conclusion of the contract, it may still be necessary to store personal data of the contractual partner in order to fulfil contractual or legal obligations.

5. Contradiction and remedy possibility

As a user, you have the possibility to cancel the registration at any time. You can change the data stored about you at any time. If the data is required to fulfil a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures, premature deletion of the data is only possible insofar as there are no contractual or statutory obligations to the contrary.

Contact form and e-mail contact

1. Description and scope of data processing

There is a contact form on our website which can be used for electronic contact. If a user accepts this possibility, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored. At the time the message is sent, the user’s IP address and the date and time of registration are also stored.

Your consent is obtained for the processing of the data within the scope of the sending process and reference is made to this Data Protection Declaration.

Alternatively, you can contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user’s personal data sent with the e-mail will be stored.

In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR if the user has given his consent.

The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If the e-mail contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves us only for managing the establishment of contact. In the event of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data. The other personal data processed during the sending process serves to prevent misuse of the contact form and to guarantee the security of our information technology systems.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed to achieve the purpose of the survey. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and data that is sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has come to an end. The conversation is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified.

The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.

5. Contradiction and remedy possibility

The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.

The revocation takes place via a written declaration to our postal address stated at the beginning or a declaration in text form to our mail address stated at the beginning.

In this case, all personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted.

You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organization. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees in accordance with Article 46 GDPR in connection with the transmission.

2. The right to correction

You have a right of rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the data controller if the personal data processed concerning you is incorrect or incomplete. The person responsible shall make the correction without delay.

3. The right to limitation of processing

Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of personal data concerning you be restricted:

(2) the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted;

(3) the data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or

If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may only be processed – apart from being stored – with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If processing has been restricted according to the above conditions, you will be informed by the person responsible before the restriction is lifted.

4. The right to deletion

a) Duty to delete

You may request the data controller to delete the personal data relating to you without delay and the controller is obliged to delete this data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:

(1) the personal data concerning you is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed;

(2) You revoke your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing;

(3) You file an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing or you file an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR;

b) Information to third parties

If the data controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to delete it pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 GDPR, he shall take appropriate emergency measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and implementation costs, to inform data processors who process personal data that you as the data subject have requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or applications of this personal data.

c) Exceptions

The right to deletion does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary

(1) to exercise freedom of expression and information;

(2) for the performance of a legal obligation required for 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 in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred to the controller;

(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i and Art. 9 para. 3 GDPR;

(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 GDPR, insofar as the law referred to under a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or

(5) for asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

5. The right to information

If you have exercised your right to have the data controller correct, delete or limit the processing, he/she is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or restriction on processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

The party responsible shall have the right to be informed of such recipients.

6. The right to data transferability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the person responsible in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to pass this data on to another person in charge without obstruction by the person in charge to whom the personal data was provided, provided that

(1) processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR and

(2) processing is carried out by means of automated methods.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one data controller to another data controller, if this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to transferability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller.

7. Right of objection

You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The data controller no longer processes the personal data relating to you, unless he can prove compelling grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising.

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

You have the possibility to exercise your right of objection in connection with the use of information society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

8 Right to revoke the Data Protection Declaration of Consent

You have the right to revoke your Data Protection Declaration of Consent at any time. The revocation of consent shall not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

9. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing – including profiling – that has legal effect against you or significantly impairs you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision

(1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the party responsible,

(2) has been made due to legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject that is admissible and that legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests; or

(3) has been made with your express consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases mentioned in (1) and (3), the person responsible takes appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the party responsible, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.

10. Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you are staying, working or suspected of infringing, if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is contrary to the GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
