PRIVACY POLICY

1. General information

1.1 What are "personal data"?
"Personal data" refers to information which discloses or can disclose a user's identity. We abide by the principle of data avoidance, that is we avoid collecting personal data on this website wherever possible.

1.2 How are your personal data used?
Personal data only and exclusively serve the establishment and drafting of the content of a contract as well as the performance or processing of the contractual relationship (Article 6(1)(b) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)).

Beyond that, personal data will only be processed where your consent thereto has been obtained (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR) or their processing is necessary for the purposes of pursuing our legitimate interests and such interests are not overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR).

Processors may be used in the processing of your personal data; your personal data will not, however, be passed on to any other third parties.

Data will only ever be passed on to a company charged with delivery if this is necessary to deliver the services ordered. The required payment data will be passed on to the credit institution charged with making the payment and, where necessary, to the chosen and charged payment services provider.

Your personal data will only ever be processed within the European Union, unless provided otherwise in the following.


1.3 How are usage data used?
General technical information is collected when you visit this website. This includes the IP address used, the time and duration of your visit, the type of browser used and, where relevant, the source home page. These usage data are registered in a logfile and may be used and stored in order to be able to conduct a statistical analysis of this website. These usage data are not linked to your other personal data.

1.4 How long will your data be stored?
Your personal data are only stored following completion of the purpose for which they were collected for as long as they need to be retained in accordance with statutory provisions (esp. provisions of tax law).

2. Your rights

2.1 Right to be informed and right of access

You have the right to request information about whether your personal data are being processed and, where this is the case, you have the right to request information about these personal data and to the other information to which reference is made in Article 15 of the GDPR.

2.2 Right to rectification
You have the right to rectification of inaccurate personal data and, in accordance with Article 16 of the GDPR, you have the right to have incomplete personal data completed.

2.3 Right to erasure
You have the right to obtain the immediate erasure of personal data concerning you. These will immediately be deleted, especially where one of the following applies: 

 

  • Your personal data are no longer needed for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

  • You revoke the consent on which the processing of your data was based, and there is no other legal basis for their processing.

  • Your data have been unlawfully processed.

 

The right to erasure ("right to be forgotten") does not apply where your personal data are needed for the establishment, exercise or defence of our legal claims.

2.4 Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to obtain restriction of processing of your personal data where one of the following applies:

 

  • You contest the accuracy of the data and their accuracy therefore has to be verified.

  • The processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure and instead request the restriction of their use.

  • Your data are no longer needed, but they are required for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

  • You have objected to the processing of your data and it is not yet clear whether our legitimate grounds override your grounds.

 

2.5 Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you which you have provided in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and you have the right to transmit these data to another controller without hindrance from us if the processing is based on consent or a contract and it is carried out by automated means.

2.6 Right to object
If you have consented to your personal data being processed, you have the right to revoke that consent at any time.

2.7 Fees and right to lodge a complaint
The exercise of the rights referred to in the above is free of charge. You have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority (Berlin Data Protection Commissioner).

3. Data security

3.1 Data security

All the data on this website are secured by technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, amendment and dissemination.

3.2 Sessions and cookies
This website uses cookies and server-based sessions in which data can be stored. Only those cookies and server-based sessions are used which are technically necessary to operate this website (e.g. anti-spam in the Contact Form) and those for which weighing up the various interests indicates that no overriding interests on our part predominate (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR).
