Which of your data are processed by us? And for what purposes?
If we have received data from you, we will generally only process it for the purposes for which we received or collected it. Specifically, this means ensuring access to our partner area (still under construction) or contacting you after you have sent us a message using our contact form.
Data processing for other purposes can only be considered if the necessary legal requirements in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 4 GDPR are available. In this case, we will of course observe any information obligations pursuant to Art. 13 Para. 3 GDPR and Art. 14 Para. 4 GDPR.
What is the legal basis for this?
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is in principle - if there are no other specific legal provisions - Art. 6 GDPR. The following options in particular come into consideration here:
- Consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR)
- Data processing for the fulfillment of contracts (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR
- Data processing based on a weighing of interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f) GDPR)
- Data processing to fulfill a legal obligation (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c) GDPR)
If personal data is processed based on your consent, you have the right to revoke your consent to us at any time with effect for the future, in particular with regard to access to our partner area (still under construction) and the associated communication via E-mail.
If we process data based on a balancing of interests, you as the person concerned have the right to object to the processing of personal data, considering the requirements of Art. 21 GDPR; We would of course inform you of such a case when it occurs.
How long will the data be stored?
We process the data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose. This means that we only save the access data for our partner area (still under construction) for as long as you actually have access. We keep other data longer due to our possible contractual relationship; You can find information on this in the next paragraph.
Insofar as there are statutory retention requirements - e.g. in commercial law or tax law - the relevant personal data will be stored for the duration of the retention obligation, which is based, for example, on Section 147 of the Tax Code (AO = Abgabenordnung). After the retention period has expired, a check is carried out to determine whether there is any further requirement for processing. If it is no longer necessary, the data will be deleted.
In principle, we check data towards the end of a calendar year regarding the need for further processing. Due to the amount of data, this check is carried out regarding specific data types or purposes of processing.
Of course, you can request information about the personal data we have stored about you at any time (see below) and, if this is not necessary, request the deletion of the data or restriction of processing.
To which recipients will the data be passed on?
Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the contract with you, the passing on is permitted based on a balancing of interests within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR or you have given your consent in this regard.
Specifically, this means that we do not pass on your data as far as we can. Our tax advisor or the responsible tax office receives invoice data. A data transfer, which we base on a weighing of interests, does not currently take place.
Where is the data processed?
Your personal data will only be processed by us on our own premises in Essen.
Your rights as a "data subject"
You have the right to information about the personal data that we process about you. In the event of a request for information that is not made in writing, we ask for your understanding that we may then request evidence from you that proves that you are the person you claim to be.
Furthermore, you have a right to correction or deletion or to restriction of processing, insofar as you are legally entitled to do so.
You also have the right to object to processing within the framework of legal requirements. A right to data portability also exists within the framework of data protection regulations.
In particular, you have the right to object in accordance with Art. 21 Para. 1 and 2 GDPR to the processing of your data in connection with direct advertising, if this is based on a weighing of interests.
Right to complain
You have the right to complain about the processing of personal data by us to a data protection supervisory authority of your choice.
