Security and protection of your personal data
We consider it our primary task to maintain the confidentiality of the personal data provided by you 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 data protection regulations are observed both by us and by our external service providers.
The legislator requires that personal data be processed lawfully, in good faith and in a manner understandable to the data subject (“lawfulness, fairness, transparency”). In order to guarantee 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 referred to as ‘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.
“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 association, qualification, erasure or destruction.
3. restriction of processing
“Limitation of processing’ means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
“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.
“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 decides on 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 by Union law or by the law of the Member States.
8. contract processors
“processor’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
“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; 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.
“third party’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any 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.
The data subject’s ‘consent’ shall mean any voluntary, informed and unambiguous expression of his or her will in the particular case, in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act, by which the data subject indicates his or her consent to the processing of his or her personal data.
Lawfulness of the processing
The processing of personal data is only lawful if there is a legal basis for the processing. According to Article 6 (1) lit. a – f DSGVO, the legal basis for the processing may in particular be:
a. The data subject has given his consent to the processing of his 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, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, which require the protection of personal data, prevail, in particular where the data subject is a child.

We provide a copy of the personal data that is the subject of the processing. We may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative costs for any further copies you request as a person. If you submit the application electronically, the information shall be made available in a common electronic format, unless otherwise specified. The right to receive a copy in accordance with paragraph 3 shall not prejudice the rights and freedoms of others.
(4) Right to rectification
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 cancellation (“right to be forgotten”)
You have the right to ask the data controller to delete personal data about you immediately and we are obligated to delete personal data immediately if any of the following reasons apply:
a. Personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
b. The data subject shall revoke the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) DS Block Exemption Regulation and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

The right to cancellation (“right to be forgotten”) does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary: – to fulfil a legal obligation which processing is subject to 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; – for reasons 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, – for archival, scientific or historical research purposes in the public interest or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) of the DSGVO, where the law referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or – for the exercise, exercise or defence of legal rights.
(6) Right to limitation of processing
You have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data if one of the following conditions is met:

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 or defence of legal rights or 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, except where they are stored. 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 transferability
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 has been provided, provided that:
a. the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) DS Block Exemption Regulation, and
b. the processing is carried out using automated procedures. When exercising the right to data transfer pursuant to 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.
The exercise of the right to data transfer does not affect the right to cancellation (“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 of objection
You have the right to object at any time, for reasons related to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you carried out pursuant to Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DS Block Exemption Regulation, including profiling based on these provisions.

If personal data are processed for the purpose of direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising. If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes. As regards 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, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1), unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest. You can exercise your right to object at any time by contacting the person responsible.
(9) Automated decisions on a case-by-case basis, including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to any decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has any legal effect on you or 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 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 have the data subject intervene, to state his or her views and to challenge the decision.
The data subject may exercise this right at any time by contacting the person responsible.
(10) Right to complain to a supervisory authority
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, they shall have the right to an effective judicial remedy if they consider that their rights under this Regulation have been infringed as a result of the processing of their personal data not in accordance with this Regulation.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form or in the callback service is therefore carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
