Security and protection of your personal data
We consider it our primary task to maintain the confidentiality of the personal data you provide us with and to protect it from unauthorized access. Therefore, we apply the utmost care and 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 law 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 about the individual legal definitions which are also used in this data protection declaration:

1. personal data
“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “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 means “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 integration, limitation, erasure or destruction.

3. limitation 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
“controller” means a 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 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 in Union law or in 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. recipient means a “recipient
“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 party means a third party
“Third party” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or 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.

11. consent
The “consent” of the data subject shall mean any voluntary statement of intention in a particular case, made in an informed and unambiguous manner, in the form of a statement or other unambiguous act of confirmation, by which the data subject indicates his or her consent to the processing of personal data concerning him or her.

Lawfulness of the processing
The processing of personal data shall be lawful only if there is a legal basis for the processing. Pursuant to Article 6 (1), the legal basis for the processing may be as follows
lit. a – f DSGVO in particular:

a. The data subject has given his/her consent to the processing of his/her personal data for one or more specific purposes;
b. 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;
c. the processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which the controller is subject;
d. the processing is necessary 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 to safeguard the legitimate interests of the controller or of a third party, except where the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, which require the protection of personal data, are overridden, in particular where the data subject is a child.

You have the right to demand from us immediately the correction of incorrect personal data concerning you. Taking into account 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 deletion (“right to be forgotten”)
You have the right to ask the data controller to delete any personal data concerning you immediately, and we are obligated to delete any personal data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:

a. Personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
b. The data subject shall revoke his or her consent.

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

– to exercise the right to 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;
– on grounds of public interest in the field of public health in accordance with Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) of the DSGVO;

d. the data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) DSGVO until it is established whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.

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, exercise or defence of legal rights or for 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, apart from their storage.

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

a. the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a or Article 9 paragraph 2 letter a or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b DSGVO and

b. processing is carried out by automated means.

When exercising the right to data transfer in accordance with 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 personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling in so far as it is connected with such direct marketing. If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.

In connection with 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 to the processing of your personal data concerning you for the purposes of scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes as referred to in Article 89(1) for reasons connected with your particular situation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.

You may exercise your right to object at any time by contacting the relevant controller.

(9) Automated decisions in individual cases, including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effect against you or which similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision:

a. is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the person responsible,

(b) is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the data controller is subject and contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject; or

c. with the express consent of the data subject.

The data controller shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a data subject from the data controller, to present his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

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

They shall also have the right, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their residence, place of work or place of presumed infringement, if the data subject considers that the processing of his personal data is contrary to 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 under Article 77 DSGVO, you have the right to an effective judicial remedy if it considers that your rights under this Regulation have been infringed as a result of a processing of your personal data that is not in accordance with this Regulation.
