Security and Protection of Your Personal Information
We consider it our primary responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of the personal information you provide to us and to protect it from unauthorized access. Therefore, we apply the utmost care and state-of-the-art security standards to ensure maximum protection of your personal data.
As a company under private law, we are subject to the provisions of the European Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that the data protection regulations are observed both by us and by our external service providers.
The legislator requires that personal data be processed lawfully, in good faith and in a manner understandable to the data subject ("lawfulness, fairness and transparency"). In order to guarantee this, we inform you about the individual legal definitions of terms which are also used in this data protection declaration:
1. personal data
'personal data' means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter 'data subject'); a natural person 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 one or more specific characteristics which express the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person, is considered identifiable.
'processing' means any operation or set of operations which is carried out in relation to personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, sorting, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or integration, qualification, erasure or destruction.
3. processing limitation
'processing limitation' means the marking of stored personal data with a view to limiting their future processing.
'profiling' means any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, place of residence or transfer.
'pseudonymisation' means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the provision of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures ensuring that the personal data cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
(6) File system
'file system' means any structured collection of personal data accessible according to specific criteria, whether centralised, decentralised or organised according to functional or geographical criteria.
'controller' means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or 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 laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for his designation may be laid down in Union law or in the law of the Member States
'processor' means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
'recipient' means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation task under Union law or the law of the Member States shall not be considered as recipients; the processing of such data by those authorities shall be carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection rules and in accordance with the purposes of the processing.
'third party' means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body, other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.
A 'consent' given by the data subject is any voluntary, specific, informed and unambiguous expression, in the form of a statement or other unambiguous act of confirmation, of the data subject's consent to the processing of personal data concerning him or her.
Lawfulness of processing
The processing of personal data is only lawful if there is a legal basis for the processing. According to Article 6 (1)
lit. a - f DSGVO, the legal basis for the processing may in particular be:
a. processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
f. processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of the controller or of a third party, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, which require the protection of personal data, prevail, in particular where the data subject is a child.
