Privacy Statement

 

1) Definitions

In order to ensure that our data privacy policy is easy to understand, we would like to explain the terminology according to Art. 4 GDPR in advance.

 

a) Personal data

 ‘Personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

 

b) Data subject

‘Data subject‘ refers to any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the data controller.

 

c) Processing

‘Processing’ means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

 

 

 

d) Restriction of processing

 ‘Restriction of processing’ describes the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting its processing in the future.

 

e) Profiling

 ‘Profiling’ means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

 

f) Pseudonymisation

 ‘Pseudonymisation’ refers to the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

 

g) Controller

‘Controller’ means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of processing personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

 

h) Processor

‘Processor’ means a natural or legal entity, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

 

i) Recipient

‘Recipient’ refers to any natural or legal entity, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data is disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients.

 

j) Third party

‘Third party’ means any natural or legal entity, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons which, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, is authorised to process personal data.

 

k) Consent

‘Consent’ of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of his/her personal data.

If the above conditions are met, an employee can have the processing restricted.

The data subject shall have the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which he or she has provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data has been provided, where:

- the processing is carried out by automated means.

The data subject may contact one of our employees on the subject of data portability.

f) Right to object

The data subject shall have the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning him or her which is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. (e) or (f) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions. The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless the controller is able to demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

 

Where personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

 

Where the data subject objects to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes. At the latest at the time of the first communication with the data subject, the right referred to shall be explicitly brought to the attention of the data subject and shall be presented clearly and separately from any other information. In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, the data subject may exercise his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications. Where personal data is processed for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 (1) GDPR, the data subject, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, shall have the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning him or her, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

 

Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

The data subject shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her. This shall not apply if the decision:

9) Lawfulness of processing (pursuant to Art. 6 (1) GDPR)

For us, the lawfulness of the processing of personal data arises on the basis of Art. 6 (1) GDPR, according to which processing is lawful only if and to the extent that the data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes.

Moreover, processing is lawful only if it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract.

Processing of personal data is also lawful if it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject.

This likewise applies if processing of such data is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural entity.

The processing of personal data is also deemed lawful if it 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.

Finally, such processing is lawful if it is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. in particular where the data subject is a child.
