III. General information on data processing

1. Scope of processing personal data
In principal, we only process the personal data of our users to the extent necessary in order to provide a functioning website with our content and services. The processing of personal data takes place regularly, and only with the consent of the user in question. Exceptions include cases whereby prior consent could not be obtained and that the processing of the data is, nonetheless, permitted by law.

2. Legal basis for data processing
Where consent is appropriate for processing personal data, Art. 6 (1) (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis to obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of their data.

As for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract of which the data subject is party, sec. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b serves as a legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry our pre-contractual activities.

When it is necessary to process personal data in order to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, sec. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that the interest or well-being of the data subject or any relevant natural person(s) require the processing of personal data, sec. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing of data is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or that of a third-party operator, and the fundamental rights and freedoms of the person(s) concerned do not outweigh the interest of the former, sec. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR will serve as a legal basis for the processing of data.

3. Data removal and storage duration
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage has been accomplished. In addition, such storage may be provided by the European or national legislator within the EU regulations, law, or other relevant regulations to which the data controller is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when the storage period stipulated by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to prolong the storage of the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling the respective contract.

IV. Rights of the data subject

When your personal data is processed, you are a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and have the following rights:

1. Right to information
You may ask the data controller to confirm whether your personal data is processed by us.

If such processing occurs, you can request the following information from the data controller:

  • the purpose for which the personal data is processed;
  • the categories of personal data being processed;
  • the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data relating to you have been disclosed or are still being disclosed;
  • the planned duration of the storage of your personal data or, if specific information is not available, criteria for determining the duration of storage;
  • the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of personal data concerning you, a right to restriction of processing by the data controller or a right to object to such processing;
  • the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
  • all available information on the source of the data if the personal data is not collected from the data subject;
  • the existence of automated decision-making including profiling under Article 22 (1) and (4) the GDPR and, in certain cases, meaningful information about the data processing system involved, and the scope and intended result of such processing on the data subject.

You have the right to request information on whether your personal information will be transmitted to a third-party country or an international organization. Given that this applies, you can then request for the appropriate guarantees in accordance with sec. 46 GDPR in connection with the transfer.

2. Right to rectification
You have a right to rectification and / or completion to the data controller, if the personal data you process is incorrect or incomplete. The data controller must make the correction without delay.

3. Right to the restriction of processing
You may request the restriction of the processing of your personal data under the following conditions:

  • if you challenge the accuracy of your personal information within a period of time that enables the data controller to verify the accuracy of your personal information;
  • the processing is unlawful, and you refuse the deletion of the personal data and instead demand the restriction of the use of the personal data;
  • the representative no longer needs the personal data for the purpose of processing, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims; or
  • if you have objected to the processing pursuant to sec. 21 para. 1 GDPR and it is not yet certain whether the legitimate reasons of the person responsible outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, this data may with the exection of data storage only be used 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 for reasons of important public interest, interest to the Union, or a Member State.

If the limitation of the processing after the abovementioned conditions are restricted, you will be informed by the person in charge before the restriction is lifted.

4. Right to erasure

a) Obligation to delete
If you request from the person responsible to delete your personal data with immediate effect, he/she is required to do so immediately given that one of the following applies:

  • Personal data concerning you is no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or processed.
  • You revoke your consent, to which the processing is allowed pursuant to sec. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a oder sec. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for processing the data
  • According to sec. 21 para. 1 GDPR you object to the processing of the data given that the processing of the data is justified by a legitimate interest, or you object pursuant to sec. 21 para. 2 GDPR.
  • Your personal data have been processed unlawfully.
  • The act of deleting your personal data will invoke a legal obligation under the Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.
  • Your personal data were collected in relation to information business services offered pursuant to sec. 8 para. 1 GDPR erhoben.

b) Information to third parties
If the person responsible has made your personal data public and has to delete the data pursuant to sec. 17 para. 1 GDPR, he/she shall take appropriate measures, including technical means, to inform data controllers who process the personal data that you have been identified as being affected, that a request has been made to delete all links to such personal data or copies or replications of the personal data, taking into account available technology and implementation costs to execute the process.

c) Exceptions
The right to delete does not exist if the processing is necessary

  • to exercise the right to freedom of speech and information;
  • to fulfill a legal obligation required by the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the representative is subject, or to perform a task of public interest or in the exercise of public authority delegated to the representative;

  • for archival purposes of public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to sec. 89 para. 1 GDPR, to the extent that the law referred to in subparagraph (a) is likely to render impossible or seriously affect the achievement of the objectives of that processing, or
  • to enforce, exercise or defend legal claims.

5. Right to information
If you have the right of rectification, deletion or restriction of processing over the data controller, he/she is obliged to notify all recipients to whom your personal data have been disclosed of the correction or deletion of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves to be impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You reserve the right to be informed about the recipients of your data by the data controller.

6. Right to Data Portability
You have the right to receive your personal data given to the data controller in a structured, standard and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transfer this data to another person without hindrance by the person responsible who was initially given the data, given that

  • the processing is based on a consent in accordance with sec. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR or sec. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract in accordance with sec. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR and
  • the processing is done by automated means.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to maintain that your personal data relating to you are transmitted directly from one person to another, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons shall not be affected.

The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority delegated to the data controller.

7. Right to object
Subjective to your situation, you have, at any time, the right to object against the processing of your personal data pursuant to sec. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The data controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the purpose of enforcing, exercising or defending legal claims.

If the personal data relating to you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data in regard to such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with direct mail.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purpose.

Regardless of Directive 2002/58/EG &ndash, you have the option, in the context of the use of information society services, to exercise your right to object to automated procedures that use technical specifications.

8. Right to revoke the data protection consent declaration
You have the right to withdraw your data protection declaration at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

9. Automated decision on a case-by-case basis, including profiling
You have the right not to subject to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - that will have legal effect or affect you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision

  • is required for the conclusion or execution of a contract between you and the data controller,
  • is permitted by the Union or Member State legislation to which the data controller is subject, and where such legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or
  • with your expressed consent.

However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data under sec. 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless sec. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g GDPR applies and reasonable measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the data controller shall take appropriate measures to uphold your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including the right to obtain assistance from the data controller or their representative, to express your opinion on the matter, and to contest the decision.

10. Right to complain to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in the Member State of their residence, place of work or place of alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of the personal data concerning you violates the GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to sec. 78 GDPR.

In this way, it is no longer possible to assign the shortened IP address to the calling computer. The data is stored in our MySQL database, logs or report data are not sent to Matomo servers.
