Security and protection of your personal data
We regard it as our primary task to protect the confidentiality of the personal data that you provided and to protect them against unauthorized access. For this reason, we exercise the utmost care and apply state-of-the-art security standards to guarantee the maximum protection of your personal data.
As a company governed by private law, we are subject to the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the regulations of the Federal Data Protection Act (FDPA). We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure compliance with data protection regulations by us and our external service providers.
The legislative authority requires personal data to be processed lawfully, in good faith, and in a way the affected person can understand (“lawfulness, processing in good faith, transparency”). To guarantee this, we inform you about the individual legal definitions that are also used in this Data Privacy Statement:
1. Personal data
“Personal data“ consists of all information that refers to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “affected person“); a natural person is regarded as identifiable when he/she can be identified direct or indirectly, especially through allocation to an identifier like a name, an ID number, location data, an online ID or one or several special characteristics that express the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.
“Processing” is any procedure executed with or without the help of automated processes or any such series of processes in connection with personal data such as the collection, acquisition, organization, ordering, storage, adaptation or change, reading, querying, use, disclosure through transmission, dissemination or another form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.
3. Restriction of processing
“Restriction of processing” is the marking of stored personal data with the objective of restricting their future processing.
“Profiling” is any kind of automated processing of personal data that consists of the fact that these personal data are used to evaluate certain personal aspects that refer to a natural person, especially to analyze or predict aspects of this natural person related to work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, place of residence or change of residence.
“Pseudonymization” is the processing of personal data in a way that the personal data cannot be assigned any longer to a specific affected person without using additional information as long as this additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures that ensure that the personal data cannot be assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
6. Data system
“Data system” is any structured collection of personal data that can be accessed according to certain criteria, regardless whether this collection is kept in a centralized or decentralized way or according to functional or geographical considerations.
7. Responsible party
“Responsible party” is a natural person or legal entity, government authority, institution or another office that decides, either itself or together with others, about the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; if the purposes and means of this processing are prescribed by the laws of the Union or the member states, then the responsible party or the certain criteria of the latter’s appointment can be designated according to the laws of the Union or the member states.
“Contract processor” is a natural person or legal entity, government authority, institution or another office that processes personal data on behalf of the responsible party.
“Recipient” is a natural person or legal entity, government authority, institution or another office to whom personal data are disclosed regardless whether it is a third party or not. However, government authorities, which possibly receive personal data as part of a certain investigation task according to the laws of the Union or the member states, are not considered recipients; the processing of these data by the aforementioned authorities is done in compliance with the current data protection regulations in accordance with the processing purposes.
9. Third party
“Third party” is a natural person or legal entity, government authority, institution or another office except the affected person, responsible party, contract processor and the persons under the direct responsibility of the responsible party or of the contract processor that are authorized to process the personal data.
“Consent” of the affected person is any unambiguous declaration of intention, voluntarily submitted in an informed way for the particular case in the form of a statement or any other clearly justifying action with which the affected person indicates his/her agreement to the processing of his/her personal data.
Lawfulness of the processing
The processing of personal data is only lawful when there is a legal foundation for the processing. Acc. to Article 6 Para. 1 Letters a – f of the GDPR, a legal foundation for the processing can be especially:
a. The affected person gave his/her consent to the processing of his/her personal data for one or several particular purposes;
b. The processing is required for fulfilling a contract whose contractual party is the affected person or for implementing pre-contractual measures that take place upon request of the affected person;
c. The processing is required to comply with a legal obligation which the responsible party is subject to;
d. The processing is required to protect vital interests of the affected person or another natural person;
e. The processing is required to perform a task that lies in the public interest or takes place in the exercise of public authority, which was transferred to the responsible party;
f. The processing is required to protect the legitimate interests of the responsible party or third party, provided the interests or basic rights and basic freedoms of the affected person, which require the protection of personal data, do not outweigh, particularly when the affected party is a child.

(4) Right to a correction
You are entitled to request from us the immediate correction of your incorrect personal data. Taking the processing purposes into account, you are entitled to request the completion of incomplete personal data – also by means of a supplementary explanation.
(5) Right to a deletion (“right to be forgotten”)
You are entitled to request from the responsible party that your personal data be immediately deleted and we are obligated to do so provided one of the following reasons applies:
a. The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
b. The affected person revokes his/her consent on which the processing was based acc. to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a or Article 9 Paragraph 2 Letter a of the GDPR, and there is no other legal foundation for the processing.
c. The affected person files an objection against the processing acc. to Article 21 Paragraph 1 of the GDPR and there are no legitimate reasons of prime importance for the processing, or the affected person files an objection against the processing acc. to Article 21 Paragraph 2 of the GDPR.
d. The personal data were unlawfully processed.
e. The deletion of the personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation according to the laws of the Union or of the member states that the responsible party is subject to.
f. The personal data were collected in relation to the offered services of the information society acc. to Article 8 Paragraph 1 of the GDPR.
If the responsible party has made the personal data public and is required to their deletion acc. to Paragraph 1, then taking available technology and the implementation costs of reasonable measures (also technical ones) into account to inform the ones responsible for the data processing, the responsible party informs them that an affected person has requested them to delete all links to these personal data or of copies or replications of these personal data.
There is no right to deletion (“right to be forgotten”) if the processing is necessary:
– To exercise the right to the free expression of opinion and information;
– To comply with a legal obligation that the processing requires according to the laws of the Union or the member states that the responsible party is subject to, or to perform a task that lies in the public interest or takes place in the exercise of public authority that was transferred to the responsible party;
– For reasons of public interest in the area of public health acc. to Article 9 Paragraph 2 Letters h and i, as well as Article 9 Paragraph 3 of the GDPR;
– For archiving purposes that are in the public interest, scientific or historic research purposes or for statistical purposes acc. to Article 89 Paragraph 1 of the GDPR, if it is expected that the law mentioned in Paragraph 1 will make the realization of the objectives of this processing impossible or seriously affect it, or
– To assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
(6) Right to restrict the processing
You are entitled to request us to restrict the processing of your personal data when one of the following prerequisites is present:
a. The affected person disputes the accuracy of the personal data, specifically for a time period that allows the responsible party to verify the accuracy of the personal data,
b. The processing is unlawful and the affected person rejects the deletion of the personal data and instead requests the use of the personal data to be restricted.
c. The responsible party no longer needs the personal data for the processing purposes, but the affected person needs them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or
d. The affected person has filed an objection against the processing acc. to Article 21 Paragraph 1 of the GDPR, as long as it is still not certain whether the justified reasons of the responsible party outweigh those of the affected person.
If the processing was restricted acc. to the above-mentioned prerequisites, then these personal data – apart from their storage – are processed only with the consent of the affected person or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural person or legal entity or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or of a member state.
To assert the right to restrict the processing, the affected person can contact us at any time (the contact information is provided below).
(7) Right to data portability
You are entitled to receive your personal data that you provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format, and you are entitled to transmit these data to another responsible party without obstruction by the responsible party to whom the personal data were provided, as long as:
a. The processing is based on a consent acc. to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a or Article 9 Paragraph 2 Letter a or on a contract acc. to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter b of the GDPR, and
b. The processing takes place with the help of automated processes.
When exercising the right to data portability acc. to Paragraph 1, you are entitled to bring about the direct transmission of the personal data from one responsible party to another responsible party if this is technically feasible. The exercise of the right to data portability does not affect the right to deletion (“right to be forgotten”). This right does not apply to a processing necessary for performing a task that lies in the public interest or takes place while exercising public authority, which transferred to the responsible party.
(8) Right to object
Due to reasons resulting from your special situation, you are entitled to file at any time an objection against the processing of your personal data, which takes place owing to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letters e or f of the GDPR; this also applies to a profiling based on these provisions. The responsible party does not process the personal data any longer unless he can prove compelling reasons for the processing worth protecting that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the affected person, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
When personal data are processed to engage in direct advertising, then you are entitled to file an objection at any time against the processing of your personal data for the purposes of such advertising; this also applies to the profiling, as long as it is related to such advertising. If you object to the processing for direct advertising purposes, then the personal data are no longer processed for these purposes.
In connection with the usage of services of the information society, you can – irrespective of Directive 2002/58/EC – exercise your right to object by means of automated processes that use technical specifications.
For reasons resulting from your special situation, you are entitled to file an objection against the processing of your personal data that takes place for scientific or historic purposes acc. to Article 89 Paragraph 1, unless the processing is necessary to fulfill a task in the public interest.
You can exercise the right to object at any time by contacting the respective responsible party.
(9) Automated decisions in the individual case, including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on an automated processing – including profiling – that develops a legal effect towards you or significantly affects you. This does not apply when the decision:
a. Is necessary for a contractual conclusion or performance between the affected person and the responsible party,
b. Is permissible owing to legislation of the Union or member states, which the responsible party is subject to and this legislation contains reasonable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the affected person, or
c. Is made with the express consent of the affected person.
The responsible party takes reasonable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the affected person, for which at least the right to bring about the intervention of a person on the part of the responsible party, to state one’s position and to challenge the decision are included.
The affected person can exercise this right at any time by contacting the respective responsible party.
(10) Right to complain to a supervisory authority
Irrespective to another administrative law or judicial legal remedy, you are additionally entitled to complain to a supervisory authority, especially in a member state of your place of residence, workplace or in the city where the alleged violation occurred, when the affected person believes that the processing of his/her personal data violates this regulation.
(11) Right to an effective judicial legal remedy
Irrespective of an available administrative law or non-judicial legal remedy, including the right to complain to a supervisory authority acc. to Article 77 of the GDPR, you are entitled to an effective judicial legal remedy if you believe that the rights that you are entitled to owing to this regulation were violated due to a processing of your personal data not done in accordance with this processing.
