Security and protection of your personal data
We make it our top priority to maintain the confidentiality of the personal data that you provide and protect it against unauthorised access. That is why we apply the utmost care and the latest security standards in order to guarantee maximum protection of your personal data. We are subject to the conditions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the regulations of the Federal Data Protection Act (FDPA) and have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that the data protection regulations are not only adhered to by us, but also by our third-party service providers.

Definitions
The lawmaker demands that personal data is handled lawfully, in good faith, and in a manner that is comprehensible to the affected person (‘lawful, in good faith, transparent’). In order to ensure the above, we hereby inform you of the individual definitions, which are also referred to in this privacy policy:

1.) Personal Data
‘Personal Data’ is any information that refers to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter ‘affected person’); ‘identifiable’ refers to any person who can be directly or indirectly identified, particularly by means of association, after being recognised by their name, an ID number, location information, an online ID, or one or several particular characteristics that express the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, financial, cultural, or social identity of this natural person.

2.) Handling
‘Handling’ refers to any operation or set of operations that is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automated means, extensive procedures, or any such set of operations in relation to personal data, such as the gathering, capture, organisation, arranging, storage, modification or alteration, reading, inquiry, use, publication as a result of transfer, distribution, or any other form of supply, matching or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.

3.) Restriction of handling
‘Restriction of handling’ means marking stored personal data with the aim of limiting how it is handled in the future.

4.) Profiling
‘Profiling’ is any kind of automated handling of personal data that entails the personal data being used to evaluate certain personal characteristics referring to a natural person, especially analysing or predicting aspects related to the working capacity, financial situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, place of residence, or change of location of this natural person.

5.) Pseudonymisation
‘Pseudonymisation’ refers to the handling of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be traced back to a specific affected person without consulting additional information, provided this additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures that ensure that the personal data cannot be assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.

6.) File system
‘File system’ refers to any structured collection of personal data accessible according to certain criteria, regardless of whether this collection is managed in a way that is ordered in a centralised or decentralised manner according to functional or geographical aspects.

7.) Responsible party
‘Responsible party’ refers to any natural or juristic person, official authority, facility, or any other centre that, whether alone or together with others, decides upon the purposes and means of processing personal data; if the purposes and means for this processing arise through a decision made by European Union law or the law of a Member State, the responsible party and/or certain criteria that they have named can be earmarked in line with European Union law or the law of that Member State.

8.) Data processing company
‘Data processing company’ refers to any natural or juristic person, official authority, facility, or any other centre that processes personal data at the behest of the responsible party.

9.) Recipient
‘Recipient’ refers to any natural or juristic person, official authority, facility, or any other centre that receives personal data, regardless whether it is then forwarded to a third party or not.  However, any official authorities who may receive personal data within the framework of a certain inquiry in accordance with European law or the law of a Member State are not classed as recipients; data handled by these authorities is done so in accordance with the applicable data protection guidelines according to the purposes of processing.

10.) Third party
‘Third party’ refers to any natural or juristic person, official authority, facility, or any other centre, except for the affected person, the responsible party, the data processing company, and the person who handles personal data under the direct authority of the responsible party or the data processing company.

11.) Consent
The ‘consent’ of the affected person is any voluntary expression of intention for the specified case, provided in an informed and unambiguous manner, in the form of a declaration or any other clear, affirmative action, with which the affected person indicates that they consent to the processing of their personal data.

Lawfulness of the processing
The processing of personal data is only deemed lawful if there is a legal basis for processing to take place. A legal basis for processing could specifically refer to the following, in line with Article 6(1)(a) through (f) of the GDPR:

  • the affected person has provided their consent for their personal data to be processed for one or more specified purposes; 
  • processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract, in which the affected person is a contract party, or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which are performed at the request of the affected person;
  • processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which the responsible party is subject; 
  • processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the affected person or another natural person;
  • processing is necessary for performing a task that was transferred to the responsible party and is in the public interest, or is performed in the exercise of official authority;
  • processing is necessary for safeguarding the legitimate interests of the responsible party or a third party, insofar as this does not outweigh the interests or basic rights and basic freedoms of the affected person who is demanding the protection of personal data, especially if the affected person is a child.

Children
Our offer is strictly aimed at adults. Persons under the age of 18 should not send us any personal data without the permission of a parent or guardian.

Rights of the affected person

(1) Revocation of consent
If the processing of personal data is based upon declared consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time. The lawfulness of the processing that has already taken place between the declaration being made and the revocation will remain unaffected if consent is revoked. You can contact us at any time with regards exercising your right to revocation.

(2) Right to confirmation
You have the right to demand confirmation from the responsible party as to whether we are processing your personal data. You can demand confirmation at any time using the contact details provided above.

(3) Right to information
Insofar as the personal data being processed, you can demand details about these personal data at any time, and about the following information:

  1. purposes of processing;
  2. categories of personal data that are being processed;
  3. recipients or categories of recipients with whom the personal data were shared or are still being shared, particularly in the case of recipients located in third countries or in international organisations;
  4. if possible, the planned period for which the personal data shall be stored, or if this is not possible, the criteria used to determine the length of this period;
  5. if a right to the correction or deletion of your personal data or to the restriction of handling by the responsible party or a right to object to processing is in place;
  6. if a right to complain to a regulatory authority is in place;
  7. if the personal data are not gathered where the affected person is located, all available information about the origin of the data;

If personal data are transferred to a third country or an international organisation, you have the right to learn about the appropriate guarantees in line with Article 46 of the GDPR in relation to the transfer.  We provide a copy of the personal data that are the subject to data handling. We are able to claim reasonable compensation for all other copies requested by you, due to the administration costs. If you make the request electronically, the information will be provided in a common electronic format, insofar as nothing else is available. The right to receiving a copy in line with paragraph 3 of the above-mentioned article shall not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

(4) Right to correction  
You have the right to demand the immediate correction of personal data related to you that is incorrect. You have the right to demand the completion of any incomplete data relating to yourself, taking the purposes of processing into consideration – even if this is by means of a complementary declaration.

(5) Right to deletion (‘Right to be forgotten’)
You have the right to ask the responsible party to delete your personal data immediately, and we are obliged to delete that personal data immediately, so long as one of the following reasons applies:

  1. The personal data are no longer needed for the purposes that they were gathered for or for processing in any other manner.
  2. The affected person revokes their consent, which formed the basis of processing in line with Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for processing.
  3. The affected person lodges the objection against processing in line with Article 21(1) of the GDPR and no overriding legitimate reasons for processing exist, or the affected person lodges an objection in line with Article 21(2) of the GDPR.
  4. The personal data have been processed unlawfully.
  5. Deletion of personal data is required for the fulfilment of a legal obligation in line with European Union law or the law of a Member State, to which the responsible party is subject.
  6. The personal data were gathered in relation to services offered by the information society in line with Article 8(1) of the GDPR.

If the responsible party has published the personal data and is obliged to deletion in line with paragraph 1, then they must take appropriate measures, which might also be of a technical nature, in order to inform the party responsible for data processing who is processing the personal data that an affected person has demanded the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data, while taking the technology available and the implementation costs into consideration.

There is no right to deletion (‘Right to be forgotten’) if processing is necessary:

  • for exercising the right to freedom of expression and information; 
  • for the fulfilment of a legal obligation, which makes processing necessary in line with European Union law or the law of a Member State, to which the responsible party is subject, or for performing a task that is in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority which has been transferred to the responsible party;
  • for reasons of public interest in the field of public health in line with Article 9(2)(h) and (i) as well as Article 9(3) of the GDPR;
  • for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes in line with Article 89(1) of the GDPR, insofar as the right named in paragraph 1 presumably rules out or seriously affects the realisation of the processing objectives; or
  • for the enforcement, exercise, or defence of legal claims.

(6)  Right to the restriction of handling
You have to the right to demand that we restrict the handling of your personal data, if one of the following requirements are in place:

  1. the accuracy of the personal data relating to the affected person is disputed, and, for a length of time that allows the responsible party to examine the accuracy of the personal data,
  2. handling is being performed unlawfully and the affected person declines the deletion of personal data and instead demands that the use of their personal data is restricted;
  3. the responsible party no longer requires the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the affected person requires them for the enforcement, exercise, or defence of legal claims; or
  4. the affected person has lodged an objection against processing in line with Article 21(1) of the GDPR, as long as it is not yet certain whether the legitimate reasons of the responsible party take precedent over those of the affected person.

If processing has been restricted in line with the above-mentioned requirements, these personal data shall only be processed – not including storage, and only with the consent of the affected person –  for the enforcement, exercise or defence of legal claims, or for the protection of the rights of another natural or juristic person or for reasons of important public interests of the European Union or one of the Member States.

In order to claim the right to the restriction of handling, the affected person can get in touch with us at any time using the contact details provided above.

(7) Right to data transferability
You have the right to receive the personal data that you supplied us with in a structured, common, and machine-readable format, and you have the right to transfer these data to another responsible party without objection from the responsible party to whom the data have been transferred, so long as:

  1. processing is based on consent in line with Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a), or on a contract in line with Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR and
  2. processing is performed by means of automated procedures.

In exercising the right to data transferability in line with paragraph 1, you have the right to effect the direct transfer of personal data from one responsible party to another insofar as this is technically possible. Exercising the right to data transferability does not affect the right to deletion (‘Right to be forgotten’). This right does not apply if processing is necessary in order to perform a task that was transferred to the responsible party and is in the public interest, or is performed in the exercise of official authority;

(8) Right of objection
You have the tight to lodge an objection against the processing of your personal data related at any time for reasons that emerge as a result of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR; this also applies for profiling protected by these conditions. The responsible party shall no longer process the personal data unless they can prove compelling legitimate grounds for processing, which take precedence over the interests, rights, and freedoms of the affected person, or processing is for the enforcement, exercise, or defence of legal claims.

If personal data are being processed in order to pursue direct advertising, you have to right to lodge an objection at any time against the processing of your personal data for the purpose of this kind of advertising; this also applies to profiling if it is in connection with this kind of direct advertisement. If you object to processing for the purposes of direct advertising, your personal data will no longer used for these purposes.

In the context of the use of services of the information society, you can exercise your right to objection, regardless of Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of an automated procedure in which technical specifications are employed.

You have the right, for reasons that emerge from your particular situation, to lodge an objection against the processing of your personal data which are being processed for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in line with Article 89(1), unless they are being processed for the fulfilment of a task that is in the public interest.

You can exercise the right to objection at any time by contacting the relevant responsible party.

You have the right not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – that will take legal effect on you, or significantly affect you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision:

  1. is required for the completion or fulfilment of a contract between the affected person and the responsible party, 
  1. is permissible on the basis of the legal guidelines of the European Union or a Member State, to which the responsible party is subject, and these legal guidelines feature appropriate measures for protecting the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the affected person or
  2. takes place with the express consent of the affected person.

The responsible person takes appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the affected person, which incorporates at the least the right to effect the intervention of a person on the part of the responsible party, explanation of their own standpoint, and appeal against the decision.

The affected person can exercise this right at any time by contacting the relevant responsible party.

(10) Right to complain to a regulatory authority
You also have the right to complain to a regulatory authority, irrespective of any other administrative or judicial legal remedy, particularly in the Member State of your current place of residence, your workplace, or the place of suspected infringement if the affected person is of the opinion that the processing of their personal data infringes upon this regulation.

(11) Right to an effective legal remedy
You have the right to an effective legal remedy, irrespective of any administrative or judicial legal remedy in place, including the right to complain to a regulatory authority in line with Article 77 of the GDPR, if you are of the opinion that the rights available to you as a result of this regulation shall be infringed upon due to your personal data being processed against the provisions of this regulation.
