II. General information on data processing

1. Scope of processing of personal data

In principle, we only process personal data of our users if this is necessary for the provision of a functional website and our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users is carried out on a regular basis only with the consent of the user. An exception is made in cases where it is not possible, for concrete reasons, to obtain prior consent, and the processing of data is necessary by virtue of legal requirements.

2. Legal basis for processing personal data

If we request the data subject’s consent to process his or her personal data, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 ph. 1 letter a of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

For the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, the applicable legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1, ph. 1 letter b GDPR. This also applies to processing processes that are mandatory for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1, ph. 1 let. c RGPD.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to safeguard the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, the applicable legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 ph. 1 letter d GDPR.

If the processing is necessary to protect the interests of our enterprise or a third party and the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override our interests, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 ph. 1 letter f GDPR.

3. Data deletion and retention period

The personal data of the data subject are deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of their storage no longer exists. Moreover, there may be conservation, if so decided by the European or national legislator, in regulations, laws or other provisions legally applicable in the Union, to which the controller is subject. The data are also blocked or deleted when the retention period prescribed in the above-mentioned regulations expires, unless there is an obligation to retain the data for the purpose of concluding or performing a contract.

III. Rights of the person concerned

If personal data about you are processed, you are a data subject under the GDPR and have the following rights vis-à-vis the controller:

1. Right to information

You can request confirmation from the controller that it is processing personal data about you.

If such processing takes place, you have the right to demand from the controller access to the following information:

  • The purposes of the processing of your personal data;
  • The categories of personal data processed;
  • The recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data have been or will be communicated;
  • The period of time for which the personal data concerning you will be kept, or, when concrete information cannot be given, the criteria used to determine this period of time;
  • The existence of the right to request from the controller the rectification or erasure of personal data concerning you, or a restriction of their processing, or to object to such processing;
  • The existence of a right of complaint to a supervisory authority;
  • Any available information as to the source of the data, where the personal data are not collected from the data subject ;
  • The existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, as referred to in Art. 22 (1) and (4) GDPR, and, at least in such cases, useful information regarding the underlying logic, as well as the scope of such processing for the data subject and the intended effects.

When your personal data is transferred to a third country or to an international organization, you have the right to request information about this transfer. In this case, according to Art. 46 GDPR, you can request information on the appropriate safeguards with regard to the transfer.

This right of access may be restricted if it is foreseeable that it will seriously jeopardize or render impossible the achievement of objectives for research or statistical purposes, and if this restriction of the right is necessary for the achievement of the objectives in question.

2. Right of rectification

You have the right to obtain from the data controller the correction and/or completion of inaccurate personal data concerning you. The data controller must carry out this rectification without delay.

Your right to rectification may be restricted if it is foreseeable that it will seriously jeopardize or render impossible the achievement of objectives for research or statistical purposes, and this restriction of right is necessary for the achievement of the objectives in question.

3. Right to the limitation of the processing

You have the right to obtain the restriction of the processing of your personal data when one of the following conditions applies:

You dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you, for a period of time that allows the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
The processing is unlawful and you refuse the erasure of your personal data and demand instead the restriction of their use;
The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are still necessary for you to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or,
If you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, there is still no decision on the priority of the legitimate grounds pursued by the controller over your grounds.
Where the processing of your personal data has been restricted, such data, with the exception of its storage, is only entitled to be processed with your consent, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or on important grounds of public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

If you have obtained the restriction of processing due to the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction of processing is lifted.

Your right to restrict processing may be restricted if it is foreseeable that it will seriously undermine or render impossible the achievement of objectives for research or statistical purposes, and the restriction of the right is necessary for the achievement of the objectives in question.

4. Right to erasure

a) Obligation to erase

You may require the controller to erase your personal data without delay, and the controller is obliged to erase such data as soon as possible, where one of the following reasons applies:

  • Your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
  • You withdraw the consent on which the processing is based, pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1, pt. 1, letter a, or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
  • You object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 para. 1 GDPR, and there is no compelling legitimate reason for the processing, or, you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 para. 2 GDPR.
  • Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.
  • Your personal data must be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
  • Your personal data has been collected in the context of offering information society services as referred to in Article 8(1) GDPR.

b) Information to third parties

If the controller has made your personal data public and is obliged under Art. 17 (1) GDPR to erase it, the controller shall, taking into account the available technologies and the costs of implementation, take reasonable measures, including technical measures, to inform the persons processing such personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested the erasure of any links to, or copies or reproductions of, such personal data.

c) Exceptions

The right to erasure does not apply if the processing is necessary:

  • To exercise the right to freedom of expression and information ;
  • to comply with a legal obligation requiring the processing under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject, or to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
  • for reasons of public interest in the field of public health, in accordance with Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) GDPR;
  • for archiving purposes in the public interest, for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 para. 1 GDPR, insofar as the right referred to in (a) is likely to make it impossible or seriously compromise the achievement of the purposes of the said processing, or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

5. Right to information

If you have exercised your right to rectification, erasure or restriction of the processing of your personal data against the controller, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients who have received the data in question, unless this is impossible or would involve disproportionate expense.

You have the right to request information about these recipients from the controller.

6. Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transmit such data to another controller, without the first controller to whom you provided such personal data being able to object, where:

The processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para 1 part 1 letter a or Art. 9 para 2 letter a GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para 1 part 1 letter b GDPR, and the processing is carried out by means of automated processes.

By exercising your right to data portability, you have the right to have your personal data transferred directly from one controller to another, where technically possible. This right must not affect the rights and freedoms of third parties.

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

7. Right to object

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data based on Art. 6 para. 1 ph. 1, let. e or f GDPR, including profiling based on these provisions.

The controller shall no longer process personal data about you, unless it demonstrates that there are compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests and rights and freedoms, or that the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Where your personal data is processed for the purpose of marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the data in question for such marketing purposes, including profiling insofar as it is related to such marketing.

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

In the context of the use of information society services and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by means of automated processes using technical specifications.

You also have the right, for reasons relating to your particular situation, to object to the processing of your personal data for scientific or historical research or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) GDPR.

Your right to object may be restricted if it is foreseeable that it will seriously jeopardize or render impossible the achievement of research or statistical purposes, and this restriction of right is necessary for the achievement of the purposes in question.

8. Right to withdraw informed consent to data protection

You have the right to withdraw your informed consent to data protection at any time. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out on the basis of consent prior to the withdrawal of such consent shall not be affected by this.

9. Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, that produces legal effects concerning you or significantly affects you in a similar way. This does not apply where the decision:

  1. Is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,
  2. is authorized by Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject, and that law provides for appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
  3. is based on your explicit consent.

However, such decisions may not be based on the special categories of personal data referred to in Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 para. 2 letter a or b GDPR applies, and appropriate measures have been put in place for the safeguarding of your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

In the cases referred to in points 1. and 3. the controller implements appropriate measures for the safeguarding of your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, and ensures at least your right to obtain from him the intervention of a person, to express your point of view and to contest the decision.

If a user visits the online site, the current tag configuration is sent to the user’s browser. It contains instructions on which tags should be triggered. Google Tag Manager is responsible for triggering other tags, which may collect data themselves. You will find information about this in the sections of this data protection declaration that relate to the use of the services in question. Google Tag Manager does not have access to this data.

Occasionally, data may be transmitted to Google servers in the USA. Google is subject to the EU-US Data Protection Shield and has been certified. This means that Google is committed to complying with the standards and regulations of European data protection law. You can find more information in the following linked entry:

Part of the conditions for the use of Google Analytics as a Google promotional product are contained in the so-called EU standard contractual clauses (Art. 46, para. 2 ph. 1 let. c GDPR). These are to be considered as an appropriate guarantee for the protection of the transfer and processing of personal data outside the EU.
