What do we process your data for (purposes of processing) and on what legal basis do we do this? We process personal data in compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and all other relevant laws:
1) To fulfil contractual obligations (Art. 6 para. 1b) DS-GVO
The processing of personal data (Art. 4 No. 2 DS-GVO) is carried out, for example, for the processing of orders, the preparation of offers and pre-contractual measures, the provision of services, invoicing and the delivery of goods. The purposes of the processing are primarily based on the service to be provided by us.
2) Within the framework of the balancing of interests (Art. 6 para. 1f) DS-GVO)
Where necessary, we also process your data in order to protect legitimate interests of us or of third parties. This may be the case, for example, with:
- ensuring IT security and IT operations, including tests
- for the prevention and investigation of criminal offences
- for statistical purposes
- for creditworthiness investigations with credit agencies
3) Based on your consent (Art. 6 para 1a) DS-GVO, Art. 9 para 2a) in conjunction with Art. 7 DS-GVO)
Insofar as we have your consent to process personal data for certain purposes (e.g. advertising), this processing is lawful on the basis of your consent. Once you have given your consent, it can be revoked at any time. Please note that the revocation is effective for the future. Processing that was carried out before this revocation is not affected by this.
4) Processing due to legal requirements (Art. 6 para. 1c) DS-GVO)
It may happen that we process your personal data in order to fulfil legal obligations. These include, for example, retention periods under commercial and tax law and, where applicable, information to authorities.
To whom is the data passed on (categories of recipients):
Data processing within the company:
We have bundled certain data processing procedures within our company. These are carried out centrally by specialised company departments. For example, your data may be processed for telephone customer service, invoice processing or mail processing.
External contractors and service providers (order processors):
In order to perform our tasks and fulfil our contracts, we sometimes use external contractors and service providers. These may include, for example, document shredders, printing service providers, logistics and IT service providers.
In addition, data may go to recipients to whom we are obliged to disclose data due to legal obligations (e.g. law enforcement agencies and courts).
Duration of data storage:
As far as necessary, we process and store your personal data for the duration of our business relationship. This also includes the initiation and processing of a contract/order. In addition, we are subject to various storage obligations, which result, among other things, from the German Commercial Code. Finally, the storage period also results from the statutory limitation periods which are usually 3 years but can also be up to 30 years.
Data transfer to third countries:
Data transfer to third countries (countries outside the EU and the European Economic Area EEA) only takes place insofar as this is necessary for the execution of a contract/order/business relationship including the initiation and only in compliance with the data protection requirements prescribed for this purpose.
Data subject rights:
You can request information about the data stored about you via the contact details provided above. (Art. 15 DS-GVO). In addition, you can, under certain conditions, demand the correction or deletion of your data (Art. 16 and 17 DSGVO). You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data (Art. 18 DSGVO). In addition, you have the right to demand the return of the data you have provided in a structured, common, machine-readable format (Art. 20 DS-GVO).
Is there an obligation to provide data?
In the context of a business initiation or business relationship with us, you generally only need to provide the data that we require for the corresponding establishment, implementation or termination of this relationship. Without the provision of the required data, we may have to refuse to establish a business relationship or may not be able to carry it out or may even have to terminate such a relationship.
Right to complain:
You have the possibility to address a complaint to the data protection officer mentioned above or to a data protection supervisory authority.
Right to object to direct marketing:
You have the right to object to processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes. If we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you can object to this processing if reasons arise from your particular situation that speak against the data processing.
