Privacy Policy

We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of the synedra information technologies GmbH. The use of the Internet pages of the synedra information technologies GmbH is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.


The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the synedra information technologies GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.


As the controller, the synedra information technologies GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.


1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of the synedra information technologies GmbH is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.


In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:


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 is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.


c) Processing
Processing is 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 is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their 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 analyze or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements.


f) Pseudonymisation
Pseudonymisation is 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 are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.


g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of 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 is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.


i) Recipient
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body to which the personal data are disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data as part of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients.


j) Third party
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.


k) Consent
Consent of the data subject is 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 personal data relating to him or her.

Any data subject may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer directly with all questions and suggestions concerning data protection.


4. Cookies


The Internet pages of the synedra information technologies GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.


Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.


Through the use of cookies, the synedra information technologies GmbH can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.
By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. If a user visits a website that uses cookies, the user, for example, does not have to enter his or her access data each time he or she visits the website, because this is taken care of by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system.


The data subject may, at any time, refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on his or her browser which allows the data subject to refuse the setting of cookies permanently. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software application. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. However, if the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, he or she might not be able to use the full functionality of our website.


5. Collection of general data and information


The website of the synedra information technologies GmbH collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. Data and information that are collected include the browser type, the website from which you reached our website (so-called referrers) as well as the date and time of access to the Internet site. We use Webalizer to analyze these data.


Our web server uses the web analyzing tool Webalizer, which anonymizes IP addresses. IP addresses are not displayed in the analyzing tool, so that a personal reference can no longer be established and you as a user remain anonymous to us. The anonymized data sets are stored on our web server and are analyzed for in-house statistical purposes only.


6. Subscription to our newsletters

On the website of the synedra information technologies GmbH, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise's newsletter. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the newsletter registration.
By means of a newsletter, the synedra information technologies GmbH periodically informs its customers and business partners about enterprise offerings. The enterprise's newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and if (2) the data subject subscribed to the newsletter. For legal reasons, we use a double opt-in process and send a confirmation e-mail to the e-mail address the data subject initially registered when subscribing to the newsletter. This confirmation e-mail is used to verify that the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject has agreed to receive the newsletter.


During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.


The personal data collected as part of a newsletter registration will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. Personal data collected by the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The data subject may terminate the subscription to our newsletter at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for receiving the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. In order to revoke consent, the data subject may use the corresponding link that can be found in each newsletter. Furthermore, the data subject may unsubscribe from the newsletter by communicating this to the controller.


Use of the e-mail service provider "MailChimp"

We use "MailChimp" to deliver our newsletters. MailChimp is an online marketing platform operated by The Rocket Science Group, LLC, a company headquartered in 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.


The e-mail addresses of our newsletter subscribers as well as additional data described within this policy are stored on MailChimp servers located in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and analyze the newsletters on our behalf. According to its own information, MailChimp may furthermore use these data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the sending and presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, i.e. to determine from which countries the recipients are. MailChimp, however, does not use the data of our newsletter subscribers to send e-mails on its own behalf nor does MailChimp share the data with third parties.
We trust in the reliability as well as the IT and data security provided by MailChimp. MailChimp participates in and has certified its compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which commits subscribers to adhering to European standards of data protection. You may view MailChimp's Privacy Policy here.


7. Registration to events


On the website of the synedra information technologies GmbH, users are given the opportunity to sign up for special events organized by our enterprise (e.g. release events). The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted to the controller.
The personal data collected as part of a registration to an event will only be used to send the invitation. After the event has taken place, the data will be deleted.


8. Registration form to download View Personal


On the website of the synedra information technologies GmbH, users are given the opportunity to download our View Personal software. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted to the controller.


The personal data collected as part of a View Personal download will only be used to send the newsletter.


The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for downloading View Personal for free, may be revoked at any time. In order to revoke consent, the data subject may use the corresponding link that can be found in each newsletter.


9. Data protection for applications and the application procedures


On the website of the synedra information technologies GmbH, users are given the opportunity to submit application documents to synedra. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted to the controller.


If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically erased two months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller are opposed to the erasure.


10. Contact possibility via the website


The website of the synedra information technologies GmbH contains information that enables a data subject both to quickly contact our enterprise electronically and to directly communicate with us. Said information includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data that a data subject voluntarily transmitted to the controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject.


11. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data


The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.


If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.


12. Rights of the data subject


a) Right of confirmation
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or any other employee of the controller.


b) Right of access
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller free information about his or her personal data stored at any time and a copy of this information. Furthermore, the European directives and regulations grant the data subject access to the following information:

 

  • the purposes of the processing;
  • the categories of personal data concerned;
  • the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations;
  • where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period;
  • the existence of the right to request from the controller rectification or erasure of personal data, or restriction of processing of personal data concerning the data subject, or to object to such processing;

  • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.


Furthermore, the data subject shall have a right to obtain information as to whether personal data are transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. Where this is the case, the data subject shall have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer.
If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of access, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or any other employee of the controller.


c) Right to rectification
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, for example by providing a supplementary statement.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or any other employee of the controller.


d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not necessary:

 

  • The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
  • The data subject withdraws consent to which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing.
  • The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.
  • The personal data have been unlawfully processed.
  • The personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
  • The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1) of the GDPR.


If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by the synedra information technologies GmbH, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or any other employee of the controller. The Data Protection Officer of the synedra information technologies GmbH or any other employee shall ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.


Where the synedra information technologies GmbH has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the synedra information technologies GmbH, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested such controllers to erase any links to, or copies or replications of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required. The Data Protection Officer of the synedra information technologies GmbH or any other employee will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.


e) Right of restriction of processing
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the following applies:

 

  • The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
  • The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of their use instead.
  • The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
  • The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of the processing of personal data stored by the synedra information technologies GmbH, he or she may at any time contact our Data Protection Officer or any other employee of the controller. The Data Protection Officer of the synedra information technologies GmbH or any other employee will arrange the restriction of the processing.


f) Right to data portability
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to receive the personal data that concerns him or her and that he or she provided to a controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she shall have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, as long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.


Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.


In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact the Data Protection Officer of the synedra information technologies GmbH or any other employee of the controller.


g) Right to object
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.


The synedra information technologies GmbH shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can 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.


If the synedra information technologies GmbH processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the synedra information technologies GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.


In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning him or her by the synedra information technologies GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.


In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact the Data Protection Officer of the synedra information technologies GmbH or any other employee. In addition, the data subject is free in the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by automated means that use technical specifications.


h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator 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, as long as the decision (1) is not necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is not authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on the data subject's explicit consent.


If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is based on the data subject's explicit consent, the synedra information technologies GmbH shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or any other employee of the controller.


i) Right to withdraw data protection consent
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her personal data at any time.


If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or any other employee of the controller.


13. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)


On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.


The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.


For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the application "_gat. _anonymizeIp". By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymized when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.


The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.


Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently to create commission settlements.


The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of website visits by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.


The data subject may, as stated above, prevent our website from setting cookies at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used, thus permanently denying the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software applications.


In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to a collection of data that are generated by Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the data subject must download a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. By means of a JavaScript, this browser add-on tells Google Analytics that any data and information about the visits of Internet pages may not be transmitted to Google Analytics. Google considers the installation of the browser add-ons to be an objection. If the information technology system of the data subject is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the data subject must reinstall the browser add-ons to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or disabled by the data subject or any other person who is attributable to their sphere of competence, it will be possible to execute the reinstallation or reactivation of the browser add-ons.


Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following link: https://www.google.com/analytics/.


14. Data protection provisions about the application and use of YouTube
On this website, the controller has integrated components of YouTube. YouTube is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to upload video clips free of charge, while enabling other users to view, review and comment on these video clips also free of charge. YouTube allows you to publish all kinds of videos, so you can access full movies and TV broadcasts as well as music videos, trailers, and videos made by users via the Internet portal.


The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, UNITED STATES. The YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.


With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding YouTube component. Further information about YouTube may be obtained under https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. During the course of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google gain knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.


If the data subject is logged in on YouTube, YouTube recognizes with each call-up to a sub-page that contains a YouTube video, which specific sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the data subject. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.


Through the YouTube component, YouTube and Google will receive information that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in on YouTube at the time of the call to our website; this occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not wish this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, he or she may prevent its delivery by logging off from his or her own YouTube account before visiting our website.
YouTube's data protection provisions, available at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.


15. Legal basis for the processing


Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations that are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor was injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company 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. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject was a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).


16. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.


17. Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.


18. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data


We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before the data subject provides personal data, he or she may contact our Data Protection Officer. Our Data Protection Officer informs the data subject about whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or whether it is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.


19. Existence of automated decision-making


As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
