  1. General information about data processing

1. Scope to which personal data is processed

As a matter of principle, we only process personal data concerning our users insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our contents and services. Processing of personal data concerning our users ordinarily only takes place once they have issued consent. This does not apply to cases in which obtaining prior consent is factually infeasible and processing of the data is necessary for compliance with legal obligations.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Where we obtain consent from the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 point a) GDPR shall be the legal basis.

In regard to the processing of personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 point b) GDPR shall be the legal basis. This applies also to processing that is necessary to take steps prior to entering into a contract.

Where processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 point c) GPPR shall be the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 point d) GDPR shall be the legal basis.

Where processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override this interest, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 point f) DSGVO shall be the legal basis for processing.

3. Data erasure and duration of storage

Personal data of the data subject is erased or blocked as soon as the purpose of its storage ceases to apply. Storage beyond this time may also take place if this is permitted by European or national directives, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or erased if a mandatory retention period specified by one of the directives, laws or regulations mentioned above comes to an end, except where storage of the data remains necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

  1. Rights of the data subject

Where personal data concerning you is processed, you are the data subject in the meaning of the GDPR and you have the following rights in regard to the controller:

1. Right to information

You may request confirmation from the controller as to whether it is processing personal data concerning you.

Where processing of this kind takes place, you may obtain from the controller the following information:

    1. the purposes for which the personal data is processed;
    1. the categories of personal data that are processed;
    1. the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you has been or will be disclosed;
    1. the planned duration of the storage of the personal data concerning you or, if concrete information on this is not possible, criteria for the determination of the storage duration;
    1. the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of personal data concerning you, a right to have processing restricted by the controller or a right to object to such processing;
    1. the existence of a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
    1. all available information on the source of the data if the personal data is not collected from the data subject;
    1. the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22 paras. 1 and 4 GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.

You have the right to obtain information on whether personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. You may obtain information in this context on the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Art. 46 DSGVO in connection with this transfer.

2. Right to rectification

You have the right to obtain from the controller rectification and/or completion if the personal data that is processed concerning you is inaccurate or incomplete. The controller must perform this rectification without undue delay.

3. Right to restriction of processing

You may obtain restriction of processing of personal data concerning you where the following conditions apply:

  • the accuracy of the personal data is contested by you, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
  • processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of their use instead;
  • the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
  • you have objected to processing pursuant to Article 21 para. 1 pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override your grounds.

Where processing has been restricted, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State

If processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be notified by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

4. Right to erasure

a) Obligation to erase

You have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay and the controller shall have the obligation to erase this data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:

    1. The personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
    2. You withdraw consent on which the processing is based according to point a) of Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1, or point a) of Article 9 para. 2 GDPR, and there is no other legal ground for the processing.
    3. You object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 para. 1 GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 para. 2 GDPR.
    4. The personal data concerning you has been unlawfully processed.
    5. The personal data has to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
    6. The personal data concerning you was collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1) GDPR.

b) Disclosure to third parties

Where the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 GDPR 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 you have requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, this personal data.

c) Exceptions

The right to erasure does not apply where processing is necessary

    1. for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
    2. 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;
    3. for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with points h) and i) of Article 9 para. 2 as well as Article 9 para. 3 GDPR;
    4. for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 para. 1 insofar as the right referred to in subsection a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or
    5. for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

5. Right to notification

If you have exercised the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the controller, the controller is obliged to communicate this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing to all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be notified of these recipients by the controller.

6. Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data had been provided, where:

    1. processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 point a) GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 point a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 point b) GDPR and
    2. processing is carried out by automated means.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This must not impair the freedoms and rights of other persons.

The exercise of the right to data portability does not apply to processing that 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.

7. Right to object

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on point e) or f) of Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.

The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Where personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data shall no longer be processed for such 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 automated means using technical specifications.

8. Right to withdraw consent under data protection law

You may withdraw your consent under data protection law at any time. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of consent until such time as it is withdrawn.

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, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision

    1. is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between you and the controller;
    2. is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or
    3. takes place with your explicit consent.

However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 para. 2 points a) or b) GDPR applies and suitable measures have been implement to safeguard the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

In the cases referred to in subsections 1. 3., the controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express your point of view and to contest the decision.

10. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR.

The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78 GDPR.
