Privacy Policy

We are pleased that you are interested in our privacy policy. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of our company. A use of the Internet pages is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject. The processing of personal data shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation, and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations.

Legal Basis of the Processing

Article 6 para. 1 Letter a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 para. 1 Letter b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Article 6 para. 1 Letter c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. Then the processing would be based on Article 6 para. 1 letter d of the GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6 para. 1 Letter f of the GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis, if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR). If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 para. 1 Letter f GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders. The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer required for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data: Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject. We will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law or may also result from contractual regulations. As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling. Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. Failure to provide the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what the consequences of non-provision of the personal data would be.

Definition

The data protection declaration of the controller is based on the terms used by the European Legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the general public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terminology used in advance. Among other things, we use the following terms in this privacy policy: Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, to an identification number, to location data, to an online identifier or to one or more special features that express the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person. The data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller. Processing is any operation or series of operations carried out with or without the help of automated procedures in connection with personal data such as the collection, recording, organization, ordering, storage, adaptation or modification, reading, querying, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, matching or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction. Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing. Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data consisting in the fact that this personal data is used to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, whereabouts or relocation of this natural person. Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person. The controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. The purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union law or the law of the Member States. Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller. The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to which personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, authorities that may receive personal data under Union law or the law of the Member States within the framework of a specific investigation order are not considered recipients. A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor. Consent is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data concerning him or her.

The person responsible within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation applicable in the Member States of the European Union data protection laws and regulations with a data protection character is: AC Inorms GmbH (LLC), Managing Director: Jegor Schatov, Nobel Street 3/5, 41189 Moenchengladbach, Germany, E-Mail: info@ac-inorms.com, Telephone: +4921619904970, Telefax: +4921619904979.

Cookies

The Internet pages of the controller use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and stored on a computer system via an Internet browser. Numerous Internet pages and servers use cookies. By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the interests of the user. As already mentioned, cookies allow us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his access data every time he visits the website, because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable under certain circumstances.

Collection of General Information

The website of the controller collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website, (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address, (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information, which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems. When using these general data and information, the controller does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the controller analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

Possibility of Contact via the Internet Pages

The website of the controller contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, due to legal regulations. If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. By sending e-mails to the e-mail address of the person responsible, the data necessary for the technical processing, including the IP address, browser information or cookies, are stored on this server of the operator. The comments left are also stored and published information on the time of entering the comment as well as on the user name chosen by the person concerned. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider of the data subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address is done for security reasons and in the event that the person concerned violates the rights of third parties by a comment made or posts illegal content. The storage of these personal data is therefore in the own interest of the controller, so that he could exculpate himself in the event of a violation of the law. There is no transfer of this collected personal data to third parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the legal defense of the controller. The controller processes and stores the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or if this has been provided for by the European legislator or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject. If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European directive and regulation giver or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Right to erasure: every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority to demand from the controller that the personal data concerning him/her be deleted immediately, provided that one of the following reasons applies and insofar as the processing is not necessary: The personal data were collected for such purposes or otherwise processed for which they are no longer necessary; The data subject revokes his or her consent on which the processing is based in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 Letter a GDPR or Article 9 para. 2 letter a of the GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing; the data subject submits, in accordance with Article 21 para. 1 GDPR, and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or the data subject submits an objection to the processing in accordance with Article 21 para. 2 DS-GVO; The personal data has been processed unlawfully; The deletion of the personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject; the personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Article 8 para. 1 of the GDPR. If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by the controller, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. An employee of Jürgen Schulze shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately. If the personal data has been made public by the person responsible and our company is responsible as the person responsible in accordance with Article 17 para. 1 DS-GVO, the person responsible shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other persons responsible for data processing who process the published personal data, that the data subject has requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data from these other data controllers, insofar as the processing is not necessary. The employee of the controller will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.

Right to restriction of processing: every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right to be informed of the European Directives- and the legislator granted the right to request the controller to restrict processing if one of the following conditions is met: the accuracy of the personal data is disputed by the data subject, namely for a period that allows the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data, the processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to delete the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data, the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, the data subject has objected to the processing in accordance with Art. Article 21 para. 1 GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the person responsible outweigh those of the person concerned. If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of the processing of personal data stored by the controller, he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the controller will arrange the restriction of the processing. Each data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority to receive the personal data concerning him/her, which was provided to a controller by the data subject, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another person responsible without hindrance by the person responsible to whom the personal data was provided, provided that the processing is based on the consent in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 Letter a GDPR or Article 9 para. 2 letter a GDPR or on a contract in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR and the processing is carried out using automated procedures, provided that the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task that is in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. In the event of an objection, the controller will no longer process the personal data, unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If the controller processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to the controller to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the controller will no longer process the personal data for these purposes. In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her by the controller for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89 para. 1 GDPR, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest. In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact any employee of the controller. In addition, the data subject is free in the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications. Each data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations, not one based exclusively on automated processing - including profiling — to be subject to a decision based on the data subject, which has a legal effect on him or significantly affects him in a similar way, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is based on Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, is permissible and these legal regulations contain appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject or (3) is carried out with the express consent of the data subject.
