Right to object to the collec­tion of data in spe­cial cases; right to object to direct adver­ti­sing (Art. 21 GDPR)

IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PRO­CES­SED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 SECT. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PRO­CES­SING OF YOUR PER­SO­NAL DATA BASED ON GROUNDS ARI­SING FROM YOUR UNI­QUE SITUA­TI­ON. THIS ALSO APP­LIES TO ANY PRO­FILING BASED ON THE­SE PRO­VI­SI­ONS. TO DETER­MI­NE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PRO­CES­SING OF DATA IS BASED, PLEA­SE CON­SULT THIS DATA PRO­TEC­TION DECLA­RA­TI­ON. IF YOU LOG AN OBJEC­TION, WE WILL NO LON­GER PRO­CESS YOUR AFFEC­TED PER­SO­NAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSI­TI­ON TO PRE­SENT COM­PEL­LING PRO­TEC­TION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PRO­CES­SING OF YOUR DATA, THAT OUT­WEIGH YOUR INTE­RESTS, RIGHTS AND FREE­DOMS OR IF THE PUR­PO­SE OF THE PRO­CES­SING IS THE CLAI­MING, EXER­CIS­ING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTI­T­LE­MENTS (OBJEC­TION PUR­SUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 1 GDPR).

IF YOUR PER­SO­NAL DATA IS BEING PRO­CES­SED IN ORDER TO ENGA­GE IN DIRECT ADVER­TI­SING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PRO­CES­SING OF YOUR AFFEC­TED PER­SO­NAL DATA FOR THE PUR­PO­SES OF SUCH ADVER­TI­SING. THIS ALSO APP­LIES TO PRO­FILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS AFFI­LIA­TED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVER­TI­SING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PER­SO­NAL DATA WILL SUB­SE­QUENT­LY NO LON­GER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVER­TI­SING PUR­PO­SES (OBJEC­TION PUR­SUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 2 GDPR).

 

Right to log a com­p­laint with the com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry agency

In the event of vio­la­ti­ons of the GDPR, data sub­jects are enti­t­led to log a com­p­laint with a super­vi­so­ry agen­cy, in par­ti­cu­lar in the mem­ber sta­te whe­re they usual­ly main­tain their domic­i­le, place of work or at the place whe­re the alle­ged vio­la­ti­on occur­red. The right to log a com­p­laint is in effect regard­less of any other admi­nis­tra­ti­ve or court pro­cee­dings avail­ab­le as legal recourses.

 

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we auto­ma­ti­cal­ly pro­cess on the basis of your con­sent or in order to ful­fil a con­tract be han­ded over to you or a third par­ty in a com­mon­ly used, machi­ne read­a­ble for­mat. If you should demand the direct trans­fer of the data to ano­t­her con­trol­ler, this will be done only if it is tech­ni­cal­ly feasible.

 

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For secu­ri­ty rea­sons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­si­on of con­fi­den­ti­al con­tent, such as purcha­se orders or inqui­ries you sub­mit to us as the web­site ope­ra­tor, this web­site uses eit­her an SSL or a TLS encryp­ti­on pro­gram­me. You can reco­gni­se an encryp­ted con­nec­tion by che­cking whe­ther the address line of the brow­ser swit­ches from „http://“ to „https://“ and also by the appearan­ce of the lock icon in the brow­ser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryp­ti­on is acti­va­ted, data you trans­mit to us can­not be read by third parties.

 

Infor­ma­ti­on about, rec­ti­fi­ca­ti­on and era­di­ca­ti­on of data

Wit­hin the scope of the app­li­ca­ble sta­tu­to­ry pro­vi­si­ons, you have the right to at any time demand infor­ma­ti­on about your archi­ved per­so­nal data, their source and reci­pi­ents as well as the pur­po­se of the pro­ces­sing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rec­ti­fied or era­di­ca­ted. If you have ques­ti­ons about this sub­ject mat­ter or any other ques­ti­ons about per­so­nal data, plea­se do not hesi­ta­te to con­ta­ct us at any time at the address pro­vi­ded in sec­tion „Infor­ma­ti­on Requi­red by Law.“

 

Right to demand pro­ces­sing restrictions

You have the right to demand the impo­si­ti­on of restric­tions as far as the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data is con­cer­ned. To do so, you may con­ta­ct us at any time at the address pro­vi­ded in sec­tion „Infor­ma­ti­on Requi­red by Law.“ The right to demand restric­tion of pro­ces­sing app­lies in the fol­lowing cases:

  • In the event that you should dis­pu­te the cor­rect­ness of your data archi­ved by us, we will usual­ly need some time to veri­fy this claim. During the time that this inves­ti­ga­ti­on is ongo­ing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data.
  • If the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data was/is con­duc­ted in an unlaw­ful man­ner, you have the opti­on to demand the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your data in lieu of deman­ding the era­di­ca­ti­on of this data.
  • If we do not need your per­so­nal data any lon­ger and you need it to exer­cise, defend or claim legal enti­t­le­ments, you have the right to demand the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data ins­tead of its eradication.
  • If you have rai­sed an objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weig­hed against each other. As long as it has not been deter­mi­ned who­se inte­rests pre­vail, you have the right to demand a restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data.

If you have restric­ted the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data, the­se data – with the excep­ti­on of their archi­ving – may be pro­ces­sed only sub­ject to your con­sent or to claim, exer­cise or defend legal enti­t­le­ments or to pro­tect the rights of other natu­ral per­sons or legal enti­ties or for important public inte­rest rea­sons cited by the Euro­pean Uni­on or a mem­ber sta­te of the EU.

 

Rejec­tion of unso­li­ci­ted e‑mails

We here­with object to the use of con­ta­ct infor­ma­ti­on publis­hed in con­junc­tion with the man­da­to­ry infor­ma­ti­on to be pro­vi­ded in sec­tion „Infor­ma­ti­on Requi­red by Law“ to send us pro­mo­tio­nal and infor­ma­ti­on mate­ri­al that we have not express­ly reques­ted. The ope­ra­tors of this web­site and its pages reser­ve the express right to take legal action in the event of the unso­li­ci­ted sen­ding of pro­mo­tio­nal infor­ma­ti­on, for instance via SPAM messages.

 

3. Record­ing of data on this website

 

Coo­kies

In some instan­ces, our web­site and its pages use so-cal­led coo­kies. Coo­kies do not cau­se any dama­ge to your com­pu­ter and do not con­tain viru­ses. The pur­po­se of coo­kies is to make our web­site more user friend­ly, effec­ti­ve and more secu­re. Coo­kies are small text files that are pla­ced on your com­pu­ter and stored by your browser.

Most of the coo­kies we use are so-cal­led „ses­si­on coo­kies.“ They are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted after your lea­ve our site. Other coo­kies will remain archi­ved on your device until you dele­te them. The­se coo­kies enab­le us to reco­gni­se your brow­ser the next time you visit our website.

You can adjust the set­tings of your brow­ser to make sure that you are noti­fied every time coo­kies are pla­ced and to enab­le you to accept coo­kies only in spe­ci­fic cases or to exclu­de the accep­t­ance of coo­kies for spe­ci­fic situa­tions or in gene­ral and to acti­va­te the auto­ma­tic dele­ti­on of coo­kies when you clo­se your brow­ser. If you deac­ti­va­te coo­kies, the func­tions of this web­site may be limited.

Each brow­ser dif­fers in the way it mana­ges the coo­kie set­tings. This is descri­bed in the help menu of each brow­ser, which exp­lains how you can chan­ge your coo­kie set­tings. You can find the­se for the respec­ti­ve brow­ser under the fol­lowing links:

Coo­kies that are requi­red for the per­for­mance of the elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons tran­sac­tion or to pro­vi­de cer­tain func­tions you want to use (e.g. the lan­guage func­tion), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in sto­ring coo­kies to ensu­re the tech­ni­cal­ly error free and opti­mi­sed pro­vi­si­on of the operator’s ser­vices. If a cor­re­spon­ding agree­ment has been reques­ted (e.g. an agree­ment to the sto­rage of coo­kies), the pro­ces­sing takes place exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agree­ment can be revo­ked at any time.

If other coo­kies (e.g. coo­kies for the ana­ly­sis of your brow­sing pat­terns) should be stored, they are addres­sed sepa­r­ate­ly in this Data Pro­tec­tion Declaration.

For more infor­ma­ti­on about coo­kies, you can visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

 

Ser­ver log files

The pro­vi­der of this web­site and its pages auto­ma­ti­cal­ly collects and stores infor­ma­ti­on in so-cal­led ser­ver log files, which your brow­ser com­mu­ni­ca­tes to us auto­ma­ti­cal­ly. The infor­ma­ti­on comprises:

  • The type and ver­si­on of brow­ser used
  • The used ope­ra­ting system
  • Refer­rer URL
  • The host­na­me of the acces­sing computer
  • The time of the ser­ver inquiry
  • The IP address

This data is not mer­ged with other data sources.

This data is recor­ded on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the tech­ni­cal­ly error free depic­tion and the opti­miz­a­ti­on of the operator’s web­site. In order to achie­ve this, ser­ver log files must be recorded.

 

Con­ta­ct form

If you sub­mit inqui­ries to us via our con­ta­ct form, the infor­ma­ti­on pro­vi­ded in the con­ta­ct form as well as any con­ta­ct infor­ma­ti­on pro­vi­ded the­r­ein will be stored by us in order to hand­le your inqui­ry and in the event that we have fur­ther ques­ti­ons. We will not share this infor­ma­ti­on without your consent.

The pro­ces­sing of the­se data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is rela­ted to the exe­cu­ti­on of a con­tract or if it is necessa­ry to car­ry out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res. In all other cases the pro­ces­sing is based on our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the effec­ti­ve pro­ces­sing of the requests addres­sed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) or on your agree­ment (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) if this has been requested.

The infor­ma­ti­on you have ent­e­red into the con­ta­ct form shall remain with us until you ask us to era­di­ca­te the data, revo­ke your con­sent to the archi­ving of data or if the pur­po­se for which the infor­ma­ti­on is being archi­ved no lon­ger exists (e.g. after we have con­clu­ded our respon­se to your inqui­ry). This shall be without pre­ju­di­ce to any man­da­to­ry legal pro­vi­si­ons – in par­ti­cu­lar reten­ti­on periods.

 

Request by e‑mail, tele­pho­ne or fax

If you con­ta­ct us by e‑mail, tele­pho­ne or fax, your request, inclu­ding all resul­ting per­so­nal data (name, request) will be stored and pro­ces­sed by us for the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing your request. We do not pass the­se data on without your consent.

The pro­ces­sing of the­se data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is rela­ted to the exe­cu­ti­on of a con­tract or if it is necessa­ry to car­ry out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res. In all other cases, the pro­ces­sing is based on your con­sent (Arti­cle 6 (1) a GDPR) and/or on our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests (Arti­cle 6 (1) (f) GDPR), sin­ce we have a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the effec­ti­ve pro­ces­sing of requests addres­sed to us.

The data sent by you to us via con­ta­ct requests remain with us until you request us to dele­te, revo­ke your con­sent to the sto­rage or the pur­po­se for the data sto­rage lap­ses (e.g. after com­ple­ti­on of your request). Man­da­to­ry sta­tu­to­ry pro­vi­si­ons – in par­ti­cu­lar sta­tu­to­ry reten­ti­on peri­ods – remain unaffected.

 

4. Ana­ly­tics and advertising

 

Goog­le Analytics
