Information About the Data Processing

Aim of the Data Processing
We process personal data to answer your requests, inform you about our services, or for other communication purposes for which we use the general means of communication (e.g., e-mail, telephone, fax).

Legal Basis for the Data Processing
The processing is necessary in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract according to Art. 6 section 1 point (b) of the GDPR or for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller according to Art. 6 section 1 point (f) of the GDPR, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject.

Categories of Recipients
Internal recipients can be any employees involved in the data processing. Furthermore, we use service providers (among them, people involved in order processing) to fulfill our tasks, such tax accountants, IT service providers, and hosting service providers, and we transfer data to authorities or courts as part of our legal obligations.

Data Transfer to a Third Country
We have no intention to transfer data to a third country.

Additional Obligations to Provide Information

Duration for which Personal Data is Stored
Personal data is deleted as soon as the purpose for which it was collected no longer exists and if there is no obligation to store this data. E-mails are generally classified as tax-relevant documents and are stored according to the legal regulations, in particular,
§ 147 AO (German Tax Code, 10 years) and § 257 HGB (German Commercial Code, 6 years)

Rights of the Data Subjects
The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her is being processed and which data is concerned (according to Art. 15 of the GDPR). This also includes the right to obtain from the controller the rectification of inaccurate personal data (Art. 16 of the GDPR), erasure of personal data (Art. 17 of the GDPR), and the right to obtain from the controller a restriction of processing personal data (Art. 18 section 1 of the GDPR). Furthermore, you have the right to object to the processing of personal data (Art. 21 of the GDPR) as well as a right to data portability (Art. 20 of the GDPR)

If you want to make use of these stated rights, contact our data protection supervisor or our office in Paderborn.

Right of Appeal
You have a right of appeal that must be directed to the responsible regulatory authority.

Obligation to Provide Personal Data
You are not obliged to provide personal data.

Automated Decision
We do not apply automated decision taking or profiling.
