Overview of processing operations

The following overview summarises the types of data processed and the purposes of their processing and refers to the data subjects.

Types of data processed

  • Inventory data (e.B names, addresses).
  • Content data (e..B. input in online forms).
  • Contact details (e.B. e-mail, phone numbers).
  • Meta/communication data (e..B device information, IP addresses).
  • Usage data (e.B. websites visited, interest in content, access times).

Categories of affected persons

  • Users (e.B. website visitors, users of online services).

Purposes of processing

  • Provision of our online offer and user-friendliness.
  • Contact requests and communication.

Below you will find an overview of the legal bases of the GDPR on the basis of which we process personal data. Please note that in addition to the provisions of the GDPR, national data protection requirements may apply in your or our country of residence or residence. Should more specific legal bases be relevant in individual cases, we will inform you of them in the data protection declaration.

  • Consent (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a. GDPR) – The data subject has given his consent to the processing of the personal data concerning him or her for a specific purpose or for several specific purposes.
  • Performance of the contract and pre-contractual enquiries (Art. 6 sec. 1 p. 1 lit.b. GDPR) – The processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which take place at the request of the data subject.
  • Legitimate interests (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f. GDPR) – The processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, which require the protection of personal data, prevail.

National data protection regulations in Germany: In addition to the data protection regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation, national regulations on data protection apply in Germany. This includes in particular the Act on the Protection against Misuse of Personal Data in Data Processing (Federal Data Protection Act – BDSG). In particular, the BDSG contains special provisions on the right to information, the right to erasure, the right to object, the processing of special categories of personal data, processing for other purposes and transmission, as well as automated decision-making in individual cases, including profiling. It also regulates data processing for the purposes of the employment relationship (Section 26 of the BDSG), in particular with regard to the establishment, implementation or termination of employment relationships as well as the consent of employees. In addition, state data protection laws of the individual federal states can be applied.

Security measures

We shall take appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of protection commensurate with the risk, taking into account the state of the art, the cost of implementation and the nature, the scope of the processing, as well as the different probability of occurrence and the extent of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons.

Measures include, in particular, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical and electronic access to the data, as well as access to, entry, disclosure, securing availability and separation. In addition, we have established procedures that ensure the exercise of data subjects’ rights, the erasure of data and reactions to the risk of the data. Furthermore, we take into account the protection of personal data already in the development or selection of hardware, software and procedures in accordance with the principle of data protection, through technical design and through data protection-friendly presets.

SSL encryption (https): In order to protect your data transmitted via our online offer, we use SSL encryption. You can detect encrypted connections by the prefix https:// in the address bar of your browser.

Transfer of personal data

In the context of our processing of personal data, the data may be transferred to other bodies, companies, legally independent organizational units or persons or disclosed to them. Recipients of this data may include, for example.B, service providers entrusted with IT tasks or providers of services and content that are integrated into a website. In such a case, we comply with the legal requirements and in particular conclude corresponding contracts or agreements with the recipients of your data, which serve the protection of your data.

Data processing in third countries

If we process data in a third country (i.e., outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if the processing takes place in the context of the use of third-party services or the disclosure or transfer of data to other persons, entities or companies, this is only in accordance with the legal requirements.

Subject to express consent or transfer required by contract or by law, we process or have the data processed only in third countries with a recognised level of data protection, contractual obligation by so-called standard safeguard clauses of the EU Commission, in the presence of certifications or binding internal data protection regulations (Articles 44 to 49 GDPR, information page of the EU Commission: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection_de).

Use of cookies

Cookies are text files that contain data from websites or domains visited and are stored by a browser on the user’s computer. A cookie is primarily used to store the information about a user during or after his visit within an online offer. The stored information may include, for example.B the language settings on a website, the login status, a shopping cart or the location where a video was viewed. The term cookies also includes other technologies that perform the same functions as cookies (e..B when user information is stored on the basis of pseudonymous online identifiers, also known as “user IDs”)

The following types of cookies and functions are distinguished:

  • Temporary cookies (also: session or session cookies): Temporary cookies are deleted at the latest after a user has left an online offer and closed his browser.
  • Permanent cookies: Permanent cookies remain stored even after closing the browser. For example, the login status can be saved or preferred content can be displayed directly when the user visits a website again. Similarly, the interests of users used for range measurement or marketing purposes may be stored in such a cookie.
  • First-party cookies: First-party cookies are set by us.
  • Third-party cookies (also known as third-party cookies): Third-party cookies are mainly used by advertisers (so-called third parties) to process user information.
  • Necessary (also: essential or absolutely necessary) cookies: Cookies may be absolutely necessary for the operation of a website (e.B. to store logins or other user input or for reasons of security).
  • Statistics, marketing and personalization cookies: Furthermore, cookies are usually also used in the context of range measurement and when the interests of a user or his behaviour (e..B. viewing certain contents, benefits of functions, etc.) are stored on individual websites in a user profile. Such profiles are used to display to users, e.B. content that corresponds to their potential interests. This procedure is also referred to as “tracking”, i.e. tracking the potential interests of users. Insofar as we use cookies or “tracking” technologies, we will inform you separately in our privacy policy or in the context of obtaining consent.

Notes on legal bases: On what legal basis we process your personal data with the help of cookies depends on whether we ask you for your consent. If this is the case and you consent to the use of cookies, the legal basis for the processing of your data is the declared consent. Otherwise, the data processed by cookies will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (e..B. in a business operation of our online offer and its improvement) or, if the use of cookies is necessary, in order to fulfil our contractual obligations.

Storage time: Unless we provide you with explicit information about the storage period of permanent cookies (e.B. as part of a so-called cookie opt-in), please assume that the storage period can be up to two years.

General notices on revocation and opposition (opt-out): Depending on whether the processing is based on consent or legal permission, you have the possibility at any time to revoke a given consent or to object to the processing of your data by cookie technologies (collectively, “opt-out”). You can first declare your objection by means of the settings of your browser, e.B., by disabling the use of cookies (thereby also limiting the functionality of our online offer). An objection to the use of cookies for online marketing purposes can also be explained by means of a variety of services, especially in the case of tracking, through the websites https://optout.aboutads.info  and  https://www.youronlinechoices.com/.  In addition, you can receive further notices of objection within the scope of the information on the service providers and cookies used.

Processing of cookie data on the basis of consent: We use a cookie consent management procedure in which the consents of users can be obtained in the use of cookies, or the processes and providers mentioned in the context of the cookie consent management procedure, as well as managed and revoked by the users. In this case, the declaration of consent is stored in order not to have to repeat its query and to be able to prove the consent in accordance with the legal obligation. The storage can be carried out on the server side and/or in a cookie (so-called opt-in cookie, or with the help of comparable technologies) in order to be able to assign the consent to a user or his device. Subject to individual information about the providers of cookie management services, the following instructions apply: The duration of the storage of consent can be up to two years. Here, a pseudonymous user identifier is formed and stored with the time of consent, information on the scope of consent (e.B. which categories of cookies and/or service providers) as well as the browser, system and used terminal device.

  • Types of data processed: usage data (e..B. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.B. device information, IP addresses).
  • Affected persons: users (e.B. website visitors, users of online services).
  • Legal bases: Consent (Art. 6 sec. 1 p. 1 lit. a. GDPR), legitimate interests (Art. 6 sec. 1 p. 1 lit. f. GDPR).

Provision of the online offer and web hosting

In order to be able to provide our online offer securely and efficiently, we use the services of one or more web hosting providers, from whose servers (or servers managed by them) the online offer can be accessed. For these purposes, we may use infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, as well as security and technical maintenance.

The data processed in the context of the provision of the hosting offer may include all information concerning the users of our online offer that is incurred in the context of use and communication. This regularly includes the IP address necessary to deliver the contents of online offers to browsers and all entries made within our online offer or from websites.

Collection of access data and log files: We ourselves (or our web hosting provider) collect data for every access to the server (so-called server log files). The server log files may include the address and name of the retrieved websites and files, the date and time of the retrieval, the amount of data transferred, the notification of successful retrieval, the browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page) and, as a rule, IP addresses and the requesting provider.

The server log files can be used for security purposes, e..B to avoid server overload (especially in the case of abusive attacks, so-called DDoS attacks) and to ensure server utilization and stability.

  • Types of data processed: content data (e.B. input in online forms), usage data (e..B. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.B device information, IP addresses).
  • Affected persons: users (e.B. website visitors, users of online services).
  • Purposes of processing: provision of our online offer and user-friendliness.
  • Legal bases: Legitimate interests (Art. 6 sec. 1 p. 1 lit. f. GDPR).

Services and service providers used:

  • Hosting: one.com – One.com Group AB, Carlsgatan 3, 211 20 Malmö
    Data Protection Officer: Bech-Bruun, DPO Service, Langelinie Allé 35, 2100 Kobenhavn, Danmark
    Denmark as the seat of the service provider is part of the European Union and is subject to the EU GDPR, so no data transfer takes place to third countries.

When contacting us (e.B. via contact form, e-mail, telephone or via social media) the information of the requesting persons will be processed, insofar as this is necessary to answer the contact requests and any necessary measures requested.

The answer to contact requests in the context of contractual or pre-contractual relationships is to fulfil our contractual obligations or to answer (pre)contractual enquiries and, in addition, on the basis of the legitimate interests in answering the enquiries.

Deletion of data

The data processed by us will be deleted in accordance with the legal requirements as soon as their consents permitted for processing are revoked or other permission is omitted (e.g. .B if the purpose of the processing of this data has ceased or they are not necessary for the purpose).

Unless the data is deleted because it is necessary for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing will be limited to these purposes. This means that the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example.B to data that must be retained for commercial or tax reasons or whose storage is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person.

Our privacy policy may also contain further information on the retention and deletion of data that applies primarily to the respective processing.

Modification and updating of the Privacy Policy

We kindly ask you to keep up to know regularly about the content of our privacy policy. We will adjust the Privacy Policy as soon as the changes to the data processing we perform make this necessary. We will inform you as soon as the changes require an act of participation on your part (e..B. consent) or any other individual notification.

If we provide addresses and contact information of companies and organizations in this Privacy Policy, please note that the addresses may change over time and ask you to check the information before contacting them.
