The data controller in accordance with the purpose of the GDPR and other data protection regulation is:
In general, we only process the personal data of our users to the extent necessary in order to provide a functioning website with our content and services. The processing of personal data regularly only takes place with the consent of the user. Exceptions include cases where prior consent technically cannot be obtained and where the processing of the data is permitted by law.
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
As for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract of which the data subject is party, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual activities.
When it is necessary to process personal data in order to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If the processing of data is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or that of a third party, and the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the interest, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR will serve as the legal basis for the processing of data.
The personal data of the data subject will be erased or restricted as soon as the purpose of its storage has been accomplished. Additional storage may occur if it was provided for by the European or national legislator within the EU regulations, law, or other relevant regulations to which the data controller is subject. Restriction or erasure of the data also takes place when the storage period stipulated by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to prolong the storage of the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling the respective contract.
If we as a company process personal data as data controller, then you as the data subject have certain rights derived from Chapter III GDPR, which depend on the legal basis and the purpose of the processing. These rights include the following:
In accordance with Art. 15 GDPR, each data subject has the right to request from the controller the information about the data stored about him or her.
In accordance with Art. 16 GDPR, each data subject has a right to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her.
In accordance with Art. 17 GDPR, each data subject can obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her.
In accordance with Art. 18 GDPR, each data subject has the right to obtain from the controller the restriction of the processing under the circumstances if one of the circumstances mentioned in Art. 18 (1) (a) through (d) GDPR applies.
In accordance with Art. 20 GDPR, each data subject has the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her that he or she has provided to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format.
To the extent your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR on grounds relating to your particular situation. To exercise this right to object, it is sufficient to contact us. We will then no longer process your data unless there are compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR, each data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. You can generally contact the supervisory authority at your usual place of residence or workplace or at our seat for this purpose. The address of the supervisory authority responsible for our company is:
- Der Landesbeauftragte für den Datenschutz und die Informationsfreiheit Baden-Württemberg
- Postfach 10 29 32
- 70025 Stuttgart
- Telphone: +49 711 6155410
- E-Mail: email@example.com
Each data subject has the right to withdraw his or her consent to process his or her personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may, at any time, contact us.
This website collects a series of data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the internet service provider of the user, (4) the internet protocol address (IP address), (5) the date and time of access, (6) Web pages from which the user’s system accessed our website, (7) Web pages accessed by the user’s system through our website. This data and information are stored in the log files of our system. The data is not stored with the user’s other personal data.
When using these general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, we analyze anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
The processing of this data is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR due to our legitimate interest in being able to properly display the website to you as well for the purpose of the security of our systems.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. The session is complete when the collection of data for the provision of the website is accomplished. In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Therefore, there is no possibility of objection.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies within the meaning of Section 25 (2) TTDSG is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes, if the user has given his consent in this regard, is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is otherwise Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
Cookies for analysis purposes are used to improve the quality of our website and its content. Through the analysis cookies, we learn how the website is used and can thus constantly optimize our offer.
