Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke any consent already granted at any time. For this purpose, an informal notification by email to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the time of the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IF THE DATA PROCESSING IS CARRIED OUT ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 (1)E) OR F) GDPR, YOU SHALL AT ALL TIMES HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA ON GROUNDS ARISING FROM YOUR SPECIFIC SITUATION, INCLUDING PROFILING ON THE BASIS OF THESE PROVISIONS. THE RESPECTIVE LEGAL BASIS ON WHICH THE PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE FOUND IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA IN QUESTION, UNLESS WE CAN PROVE THAT THERE ARE COMPELLING REASONS FOR PROCESSING WHICH ARE WORTHY OF PROTECTION AND WHICH OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS, OR THE PROCESSING SERVES TO ASSERT, EXERCISE OR DEFEND LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION UNDER ART. 21(1) GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA CONCERNING YOU FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING, INCLUDING PROFILING, IF IT IS CONNECTED WITH SUCH DIRECT MARKETING; IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING (OBJECTION UNDER ART. 21(2) GDPR).

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of breaches of the GDPR, the data subjects have the right to appeal to a regulator, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence or workplace or the place of the alleged breach. The right of appeal will be without prejudice to other administrative or judicial recourse.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done if it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of your browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the padlock symbol in your browser line.

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

Information, cancellation and correction

Within the context of the legal provisions, you have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, as well as the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, the right to correct or delete this data. For this purpose as well as for further questions about personal data, you can contact us at the address given in the imprint at any time.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the publication details. The right to limit processing arises in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to check this. For the duration of the assessment, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data has been/is being carried out unlawfully, you may request that the data processing be restricted rather than deleted.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the exercise, defence or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
  • If you have filed an objection in accordance with Art. 21(1) GDPR, your interests will need to be weighed against ours. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests predominate, you have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data be restricted.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may not be processed – apart from its storage – without your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal rights or protecting the rights of another natural person or legal entity or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Objection to advertising emails

The use of contact data published within the context of the imprint obligation by third parties for sending advertising and information material not expressly requested is hereby prohibited. The operators of this website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, e.g. through spam emails.

Liability for links

Our website contains links to external websites of third parties, over the contents of which we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for these external contents. The respective provider or operator of the sites is always responsible for the contents of the linked sites. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not identified at the time of linking. If we become aware of any infringements, we will remove such links immediately.

Cookies that are required for the electronic communication process (necessary cookies) or for the provision of certain functions requested by you (functional cookies, e.g. for the shopping basket function) or for the optimisation of the website (e.g. cookies for measuring the web audience) are stored on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, unless another legal basis is given. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. If consent to the storage of cookies has been applied for, the storage of the cookies in question will take place exclusively on the basis of this consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR); consent can be revoked at any time.

You can set your browser to inform you when cookies are set and to allow cookies only in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you disable cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Insofar as cookies are used by third-party companies or for analysis purposes, we will point this out separately in this privacy policy and, if necessary, ask you for your consent.

  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

This data is collected on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of its website – for this purpose, the server log files must be recorded.

This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR if your request is in connection with the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on our legitimate interest in effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR), provided that the request was made.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or until the purpose for which the data was stored no longer applies (e.g. after processing your enquiry). Mandatory legal regulations – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Enquiry by email, telephone or fax

If you contact us by email, telephone or fax, your enquiry, including all personal data (name, enquiry), will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

This website uses Newsletter2Go to send newsletters. The provider is Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Straße 126, 12683 Berlin, Germany.

Newsletter2Go is a service with which, among other things, the sending of newsletters can be organised and analysed. The data you enter to subscribe to the newsletter is stored on the servers of Newsletter2Go in Germany.

If you do not want to receive analyses from Newsletter2Go, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter email. You can also unsubscribe directly on the website.

Data analysis by Newsletter2Go

With the help of Newsletter2Go, it is possible for us to analyse our newsletter campaigns. For example, we can see whether a newsletter message was opened and which links were clicked on, if any. In this way, we can determine which links were clicked on particularly often.

We can also see if certain previously defined actions were performed after opening/clicking (conversion rate). For example, we can see whether you have made a purchase after clicking on the newsletter.

Newsletter2Go also allows us to divide the newsletter recipients into different categories (“clustering”). Thus the newsletter recipients can be divided e.g. by age, gender or place of residence. This way, the newsletter can be better adapted to the respective target groups.

Legal basis

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data, which you provide us for the purpose of the newsletter subscription, will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of Newsletter2Go after the unsubscription. Data that has been saved for other purposes remains unaffected.

Further details can be found in the Newsletter2Go privacy policy at: https://de.sendinblue.com/informationen-newsletter-empfaenger/?rtype=n2go

8. Own services

Handling of applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to apply for a position with us (e.g. by email, by post or by online application form). In the following, we provide information about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will take place in accordance with the applicable data protection laws and all other legal requirements and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.

Scope and purpose of data collection

If you apply for a job with us, we process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes in the context of job interviews, etc.) to the extent that this is necessary for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Section 26 of the new Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG-neu) according to German law (establishment of an employment relationship), Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have granted your consent – Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. This consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons who are involved in the processing of your application.

In the event of a successful application, the data transmitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 BDSG-neu and Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR for the purpose of carrying out the employment relationship.

Retention period of the data

If we are unable to offer you a job, if you reject a job offer or if we withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have submitted to us for up to 6 months after the end of the application procedure (rejection or withdrawal of the application) on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). After this period, the data will be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. The storage serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is foreseeable that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will only be deleted when the purpose of further storage has ceased to apply.

A longer retention period may also be granted if you have given your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) or if statutory retention obligations prevent the deletion.
