III.    General Information on Data Processing

1.        Scope of Processing Personal Data

We process our users’ personal data in principle only to the extent required to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. Our users’ personal data is processed regularly only after the users have provided consent. An exception applies in cases where obtaining prior consent is not possible due to tangible reasons, and data processing is permitted by statutory regulations.

 

2.        Legal Basis for Processing Personal Data

To the extent that we obtain consent of the data subject for processing personal data, Art. 6 section 1 letter a of EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies as the legal basis.

If personal data needs to be processed to fulfil a contract for which the data subject is the contractual party, Art. 6 section 1 letter b of GDPR applies as the legal basis. This applies also for processing required to carry out pre-contractual measures.

To the extent that personal data needs to be processed to fulfil a legal obligation to which our business is subject, Art. 6 section 1 letter c of GDPR applies as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or a different natural entity require personal data to be processed, Art. 6 section 1 letter d of GDPR applies as the legal basis.

If processing is required to protect a justified interest of our business or a third party and the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the interest of the former, Art. 6 section 1 letter f of GDPR applies as the legal basis for processing.

3.        Data Deletion and Storage Duration

The data subject’s personal data is deleted or blocked if the purpose of the storage is obsolete. Storage may take place above and beyond this if this was envisaged by European or national legislators in ordinances under European Union law, statutes or other regulations to which the data controller is subject. Data is blocked or deleted also in cases where a storage duration envisaged by the stated standards expires, unless it is necessary to continue to store the data to conclude a contract or fulfil a contract.

IV.    Providing the Website and Creating Log Files

1.        Description and Scope of Data Processing

Each time a page on our website is visited, our system collects data and information from the accessing computer on an automated basis.

The following data is collected in the process:

 

(1)   Information about the browser type and the version used

(2)   The user’s operating system

(3)   The user’s Internet Service Provider

(4)   The user’s IP address

(5)   Date and time of the visit

(6)   Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website

(7)   Websites visited by the user’s system via our website

The data is also saved in our system’s log files. This data is not saved together with other personal data from the user.

 

2.        Legal Basis for Data Processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 section 1 letter f of GDPR.

 

 

3.        Purpose of Data Processing

The system needs to save the IP address temporarily to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. The IP address needs to remain saved for the duration of the session for this purpose.

 

The storage takes place in log files to ensure that the website remains functional. Additionally, the data aids us in optimising the website and in ensuring that our IT systems remain secure. The data is not evaluated for marketing purposes in this context.

 

For these purposes, we also have justified interest in data processing according to Art. 6 section 1 letter f of GDPR.

4.        Duration of Storage

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. When data is collected to provide the website, the data is deleted when the respective session is complete.

 

If the data is saved in log files, it is deleted after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this is possible. In this case, the users’ IP addresses are deleted or de-familiarised to ensure that the data can no longer be assigned to the accessing client. However, all log files are deleted after 6 months at the latest.

5.        Option for Rejection and Rectification

It is absolutely necessary to collect data to provide the website, and to save data in log files to operate the website. The user thus cannot object to this.

XIII.         Rights of the Data Subject

The following list includes all rights held by the data subject according to GDPR. Rights not relevant for the specific website do not need to be stated. The list may be shortened in this regard.

If your personal data is processed, you are a data subject consistent with GDPR and you are entitled to the following rights towards the data controller:

1.        Right to Obtain Information

You can ask the data controller to confirm whether your personal data is processed by us.

If such processing has taken place, you can request the following information from the data controller:

(1)       The purposes for which the personal data is processed;

(2)       The categories of personal data processed;

(3)       The recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data about you has been or will be disclosed;

(4)       The planned duration of the storage of your personal data or, if specific information about this cannot be provided, criteria for determining the storage period;

(5)       The existence of a right of rectification or deletion of your personal data, of a right to the restriction of processing by the data controller, or of a right to objection to such processing;

(6)       The existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;

(7)       All available information about the origin of the data if the personal data is not collected from the data subject;

(8)       The existence of automated decision-making, including profiling in accordance with Art. 22 section 1 and 4 of GDPR and – at least in these cases – meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.

You have the right to request information as to whether your personal data is transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed about the appropriate guarantees in accordance with Art. 46 of GDPR in connection with the transmission.

2.        Right to Rectification

You have a right to rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the data controller if the personal data processed concerning you is incorrect or incomplete. The data controller must make the correction without delay.

3.        Right to Limitation of Processing

You may request that the processing of personal data concerning you be restricted under the following circumstances:

(1)       If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data for a period of time that enables the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;

(2)       The processing is unlawful and you refuse the deletion of the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted;

(3)       The data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you do need it to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims, or

(4)       If you have filed an objection to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 section 1 of GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh your reasons.



If the processing of your personal data has been restricted, such data may only be processed – apart from being stored – with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising, or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

If the processing restriction has been restricted according to the above conditions, you will be informed by the data controller before the restriction is lifted.

4.        Right to Deletion

a)        Deletion obligation

You may request the data controller to delete your personal data without delay and he/she is obliged to delete this data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:

(1)       Your personal data is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.

(2)       You revoke your consent, on which the processing was based in accordance with Art. 6 section 1 letter a or Art. 9 section 2 letter a of GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

(3)       You file an objection against the processing in accordance with Art. 21 section 1 of GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or you file an objection against the processing in accordance with Art. 21 section 2 of GDPR.

(4)       Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.

(5)       The deletion of your personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation under European Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.

(6)       Your personal data has been collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Art. 8 section 1 of GDPR.

b)        Information to Third Parties

If the data controller has made your personal data public and is obliged to delete it in accordance with Art. 17 section 1 of GDPR, he/she shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform those who process the personal data that you as the data subject have requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data.

c)        Exceptions

The right to deletion is obsolete if processing is required

(1)       To exercise freedom of expression and information;

(2)       To fulfil a legal obligation required for processing under the law of the European Union or of Member States to which the data controller is subject or to carry out a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the data controller;

(3)       For reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with Art. 9 section 2 letters h and i and Art. 9 section 3 of GDPR;

(4)       For archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 section 1 of GDPR, insofar as the law referred to under section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the attainment of the objectives of such processing.

(5)       To assert, exercise, or defend legal claims.

5.        Right to Instruction

If you have exercised your right to have the data controller correct, delete, or restrict data processing, he/she is obliged to inform all recipients to whom your personal data has been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or restriction on processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed by the data controller about such recipients.

6.        Right to Data Transferability

You have the right to receive such personal data as relates to you that you provided to the data controller in a structured, common, and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to pass this data on to another data controller without obstruction by the data controller to whom the personal data was made available, provided that:

(1)       Processing is based on consent in accordance with Art. 6 section 1 letter a of GDPR or Art. 9 section 2 letter a of GDPR or on a contract in accordance with Art. 6 section 1 letter b of GDPR, and

(2)       Processing is carried out using automated methods.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that your personal data be transferred directly from one data controller to another data controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to data transferability shall not apply to the processing of personal data required for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of an official authorisation conferred on the data controller.

7.        Right of Objection

You have the right to file an objection at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art 6 section 1 letter e or f of GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The data controller shall no longer process your personal data unless he/she can prove compelling and legitimate grounds for processing, which outweigh your interests, rights, and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims.

If your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to file an objection at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing.

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

You have the option to exercise your right of objection in connection with the use of information society services by means of automated processes using technical specifications – notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

8.        Right to Revoke the Data Protection Declaration of Consent

You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. The revocation of consent shall not affect the legality of processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

9.        Automated Decision-Making in Individual Cases Including Profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing – including profiling – that has legal effects against you or significantly impairs you in a similar manner. This is not the case if the decision

(1)       is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the data controller,

(2)       is admissible under European Union legislation or that of the Member States to which the data controller is subject and where such legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or

(3)       is made with your express consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data in accordance with Art. 9 section 1 of GDPR, unless Art. 9 section 2 letter a or g applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

In the cases referred to in points (1) and (3), the data controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

10.    Right to Lodge a Complaint with a Supervisory Authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, every data subject shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of his or her habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if the data subject considers that the processing of personal data relating to him or her infringes this Regulation.

The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78 of GDPR.
