Personal data will be transmitted to third parties, if

  • it was expressly consented to by the data subject under Article 6 (1) (1) (a) GDPR,
  • the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR is required to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to believe that the data subject has an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing their data,

If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to these states and processed there. We would like to point out that in third countries that are insecure in terms of data protection law, no level of data protection comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed.

We would like to point out that the USA, as a secure third country, generally has a level of data protection comparable to that of the EU.

12. Your rights as a data subject

As far as your personal data is processed during the visit of our website, you have the following rights as a „data subject“ within the meaning of the GDPR.

12.1 Information

You can ask us for information about whether personal data is processed by us. No right of access exists if the granting of the coveted information against the duty of confidentiality acc. § 83 StBerG would violate or the information for other reasons, in particular because of a predominant legitimate interest of a third party, must be kept secret. Deviating from this, there may be an obligation to provide the information if your interests outweigh the interests of secrecy, in particular taking into account any imminent damage. The right of access is also excluded if the data are stored only because they may not be deleted due to statutory or statutory retention periods or serve exclusively for purposes of data protection or data protection control, if the disclosure of information would require a disproportionate effort and processing other purposes is excluded by appropriate technical and organizational measures. If in your case the right to information is not excluded and your personal data are processed by us, you can ask us for information about the following information:

  • purposes of processing,
  • categories of personal data that is processed,

  • the existence of a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority,
  • if the personal data has not been collected from you as the data owner, the information available on the origin of the data,
  • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling and meaningful information on the logic involved, as well as the scope and intended impact of automated decision-making, where appropriate;
  • if applicable, in the case of transmission to recipients in third countries, unless there is a decision by the EU Commission on the adequacy of the protection level under Art. 45 (3) GDPR, information on which suitable guarantees pursuant to Art. Art. 46 para. 2 GDPR for the protection of personal data.

  • The deletion of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation to our company.

There is no entitlement to cancellation if, in the case of legitimate non-automated data processing, deletion is not possible or only possible with disproportionately high outlay due to the special nature of the storage and your interest in deletion is low. In this case, the deletion is replaced by the restriction of processing.

12.3 Restriction of processing

You may require us to restrict processing if any of the following applies:

  • You deny the accuracy of your personal data. The restriction may be required in this case for the duration that allows us to verify the accuracy of the data.
  • The processing is unlawful and you require instead of deletion the restriction of the use of your personal data.
  • Your personal information is no longer needed by us for the purposes of processing, but you need to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
  • You have contradiction acc. Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR. The limitation of processing may be required as long as it is not certain that our justified reasons outweigh your reasons.

Restriction of processing means that the personal data will be processed only with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest. Before we lift the restriction, we have a duty to inform you.

12.4 Data portability

If technically feasible, you may require us to transfer your personal information directly to another person in charge.

This also applies to a profiling based on Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 letter e) or letter f) of the GDPR. After exercising your right to object, we will no longer process your personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the purposes of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

You may at any time object to the processing of the personal data relating to you for direct marketing purposes. This also applies to a profiling associated with such direct mail.
