Security and protection of your personal data

We consider it our primary responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of the personal data you provide and to protect it against unauthorised access. We thus apply the utmost care and the most modern security standards to ensure maximum protection of your personal data.

As a privately held company, we are subject to the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the regulations 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 are processed lawfully, fairly and in a way that is comprehensible to the data subject ("lawfulness, fairness, transparency"). To ensure this, we provide information to you about the individual legal definitions which are also used in this privacy policy:

1.    Personal data

"Personal data" shall mean any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as "data subject"); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, on-line identification, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

2.    Processing

"Processing" refers to any operation or set of operations performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, sorting, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

3.    Limitation of processing

"Limitation of processing" means the marking of stored personal data with the objective of limiting their processing in the future.

4.    Profiling

"Profiling" refers to any automated processing of personal data for the purpose of ascertaining certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular with a view to analysing or predicting aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or movement of that natural person.

5.    Pseudonymization

"Pseudonymization" means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data cannot be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

6.    File system

"File system" refers to any structured collection of personal data accessible according to specific criteria, whether centralised, decentralised or organised along functional or geographical lines.

7.    Controller

"Controller" means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

8.    Processor

"Processor" means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

9.    Recipient

"Recipient" means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.

10.    Third party

"Third party" means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.

11.    Consent

"Consent" of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

Lawfulness of processing

The processing of personal data is lawful only if there is a legal basis. Pursuant to Article 6 (1)<br/> letters (a) to (f) of the GDPR, the legal basis for the processing may in particular be:

a.    The data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes;

b.    Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract;

c.    Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject;

d.    Processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person;

e.    Processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;

f.    Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.

If personal data are transferred to a third country or to an international organization, you have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 GDPR in connection with the transfer. We can provide a copy of the personal data that is the subject of processing. We may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative costs for any additional copies you request.

The right to receive a copy under paragraph 3 shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

(4) Right of rectification

You have the right to ask us to correct any incorrect personal data concerning you without delay. In consideration of the purposes of the processing, you have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, also by means of a supplementary declaration.

(5) Right to erasure ("right to be forgotten")

You have the right to request the controller to delete personal data relating to you immediately, and we are obliged to delete personal data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:
a.    The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
b.    The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) or Article 9 (2) (a) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
c.    The data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or the data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (2) GDPR.
d.    The personal data were processed unlawfully.
e.    The personal data have to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
f.    The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Article 8 (1) GDPR.

Where the controller has made the personal data public and is obliged pursuant to paragraph 1 to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers which are processing the personal data that the data subject has requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data.

The right to erasure ("right to be forgotten") does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary for the following:
–    to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
–    for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
–    for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with points (h) and (i) of Article 9 (2) as well as Article 9 (3);
–    for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 (1) in so far as the right referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or
–    for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

(6)  Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to ask us to limit the processing of your personal data if one of the following conditions is met:
a.    The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
b.    The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead;
c.    The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
d.    The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject

Where processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, such personal data, apart from being stored, shall be processed only with the consent of the data subject or for the purpose of pursuing, exercising or defending legal claims 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.

In order to exercise the right to limit the processing, the data subject may contact us at any time using the contact details provided above.

(7) Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format, and you have the right to transfer such data to another controller without interference from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that:
a.    the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) letter (a) or Article 9 (2) letter (a) or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 (1) letter (b) GDPR and
b.    the processing is carried out using automated procedures.
When exercising the right to transfer data in accordance with paragraph 1, you have the right to obtain that personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller to the extent technically feasible. Exercising the right of data portability does not affect the right to erasure ("right to be forgotten"). This right shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

(8) Right to object

You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you carried out pursuant to Article 6 (1) letters (e) or (f) of the GDPR, including profiling based on these provisions. The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or unless the processing is for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

Where personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data relating to you for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.

In the context of the use of Information Society services, and 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 the purposes of scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes, as referred to in Article 89 (1), except where such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

You can exercise the right to object at any time by contacting the controller.

(9) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has legal effect on you or significantly affects you in a similar way. This shall not apply if the decision:
a.    is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller,
b.    is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or
c.    is based on the data subject's explicit consent.

The data controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

The data subject may exercise this right at any time by contacting the controller.

(10) Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you also have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which you reside, the place of employment or in the place where the alleged infringement occurred, if the data subject considers that the processing of personal data relating to him/her is being carried out in breach of this regulation.

(11) Right to an effective judicial remedy

Without prejudice to any available administrative or extrajudicial remedy, including the right to appeal to a supervisory authority pursuant to Article 77 of the GDPR, you have the right to an effective judicial remedy if it considers that your rights under this regulation have been violated as a result of the processing of your personal data contrary to this regulation.
