II. General information on data processing
- Scope of the processing
As a matter of principle, we process personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception is made in cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
- Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as 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 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
- Data deletion and storage duration
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU ordinances, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted when a storage period prescribed by the above-mentioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling a contract.
III. Contact form and E-mail contact
- Description and scope of data processing
On our website there is a contact and a support form which can be used for electronic contact. If a user takes advantage of this option, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us via an automatically generated e-mail and stored.
Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the provided e-mail address. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored in the usual manner.
In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data will be used exclusively for processing the conversation.
- Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR if the user has given his consent.
The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6, Par. 1, letter f, GDPR. If the e-mail contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR.
- Purpose of the data processing
The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves us only to process the contact. In the case of contacting us by e-mail, this is also the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data.
The other personal data processed during the sending process serves to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
- Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose of their collection. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation or business relationship with the user has ended and the data are not required for other purposes.
- Possibility of objection and removal
The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case the conversation cannot be continued.
All personal data stored in the course of the contact will be deleted in this case.
IV. Rights of the data subject
If your personal data is processed, you are a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and you are entitled to the following rights against the person responsible:
- Right of access to information
You may request confirmation from the person responsible as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed by us.
In the event of such processing, you may request the following information from the data controller:
(1) the purposes for which the personal data are processed;
(2) the categories of personal data which are processed;
(3) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you has been or will be disclosed;
(4) the planned duration of storage of the personal data concerning you or, if it is not possible to give specific details, criteria for determining the duration of storage;
(5) the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of personal data concerning you, a right to have the processing limited by the controller or a right to object to such processing;
(6) the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
(7) all available information on the origin of the data if the personal data is not collected from the data subject;
(8) the existence of an automated decision making process, including profiling in accordance with art. 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 on the data subject.
You have the right to request information as to whether personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organization. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR in connection with the transfer.
- Right of rectification
You have the right to ask the data controller to correct and/or complete the data if the personal data processed concerning you is incorrect or incomplete. The data controller must make the correction without delay.
- Right to limit processing
Under the following conditions, you may request the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning you:
(1) if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period that allows the person responsible to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
(2) the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead request the restriction of the use of the personal data;
(3) the data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need it in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or
(4) if you have lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh your reasons.
If the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, such data, apart from being stored, may be processed only with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.
If the restriction on processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.
- Right of cancellation
a) Duty to delete
You may demand that the person responsible for the data concerning you be immediately deleted, and the person responsible is obliged to delete such data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:
(1) The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
(2) You revoke your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
(3) You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and there are no legitimate reasons for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR.
(4) The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.
(5) The deletion of personal data concerning you is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
(6) The personal data concerning you has been collected in relation to the information society services offered in accordance with art. 8 para. 1 GDPR.
b) Information to third parties
If the data controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to delete them pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 GDPR, it shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account available technology and implementation costs, to inform data controllers who process the personal data that you, as a data subject, have requested them to delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data.
The right to deletion does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary
(1) to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
(2) to comply with a legal obligation requiring processing under Union or national law 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;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i and Art. 9 para. 3 GDPR;
(4) for archiving, scientific or historical research purposes in the public interest or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 GDPR, insofar as the law referred to in section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or
(5) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
- Right to information
If you have exercised the right of rectification, erasure or limitation of processing vis-à-vis the controller, the controller is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification, erasure or limitation of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have the right to be informed about these recipients.
- Right to data transferabillity
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the data controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to have this data communicated to another person in charge without interference from the person in charge to whom the personal data has been communicated, provided that
(1) the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR and
(2) the processing is carried out using automated procedures.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to obtain that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one person in charge to another, as far as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons may not be affected by this.
The right to data transferability shall not apply to processing of personal data which 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.
- Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you that is carried out on the basis of art. 6 paragraph 1 letter e or f of the GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The person responsible will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless he/she can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing which are worthy of protection and which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you are 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, insofar as it relates to such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.
You may exercise your right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, without prejudice to Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.
- Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. Revocation of your consent does not affect the legality of the processing that has taken place on the basis of your consent until revocation.
- Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – which has legal effect on you or which significantly affects you in a similar way. This shall not apply if the decision
(1) is necessary for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract between you and the person responsible,
(2) is authorised by Union law or the law of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject and that law contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
(3) with your express consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data according to Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
With regard to the cases mentioned in (1) and (3), the responsible person shall take reasonable measures to protect the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the responsible person, to present his or her point of view and to challenge the decision.
- Right to appeal to 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 in which you are resident, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you is in breach of the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and the results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 GDPR.
