To ensure this, we hereby inform you about the individual statutory definitions that are also used in this privacy policy:

 

 

 

  1. Personal data

“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one 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 to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

 

  1. Processing operations

“Processing” is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

 

  1. Restriction of processing

“Restriction of processing” is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.

 

  1. Profiling

“Profiling”is any form of automated processing of Personal Data consisting of the use of Personal Data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

 

  1. Pseudonymisation

“Pseudonymisation” is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

 

  1. Filing system

“Filing system” is any structured set of personal data which are accessible according to specific criteria, whether centralised, decentralised or dispersed on a functional or geographical basis;

 

  1. Controller

“Controller” is a 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; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

 

  1. Processor

“Processor” is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

 

  1. Recipient

“Recipient” is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.

 

  1. Third parties

“Third party” is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.

 

  1. Consent

“Consent” of the data subject 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 relating to him or her.

 

Lawfulness of Processing

The processing of personal data is lawful only if there is a legal basis for the processing. Pursuant to point (a) through (f) of art. 6(1) GDPR, legal basis for processing may include in particular:

  1. The data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for
    one or more specific purposes;
  2. processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract;
  3. processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject;
  4. processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person;
  5. 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;

  3. the recipients or categories of recipient to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations;

Where personal data are transferred to a third country or to an international organisation, you have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards pursuant to art. 46 GDPR relating to the transfer. We will provide a copy of the personal data undergoing processing. For any further copies requested by you, we may charge a reasonable fee based on administrative costs. Where you make the request by electronic means, and unless otherwise requested by you, the information will be provided in a commonly used electronic form. The right to obtain a copy referred to above must not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

You have the right to obtain from us without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning you. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

(5) Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”)

You have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay and we have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:

 

  1. The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

The right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”) does not exist to the extent that processing is necessary:

 

  • for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
  • for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
  • for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with points (h) and (i) of art. 9(2) as well as art. 9(3) GDPR;
  • for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with art. 89(1) GDPR in so far as the right referred to in art. 17(1) GDPR is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or

You have the right to obtain from us restriction of processing of your personal data where one of the following applies:

  2. the processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead;
  3. the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or
  4. the data subject has objected to processing pursuant to art. 21(1) GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

 

Where processing has been restricted under the above prerequisites, such personal data will, with the exception of storage, only be processed with the data subject’s consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

 

The data subject can contact us at any time via the contact details stated earlier if he or she wishes to assert his or her right to a restriction of processing.

 

(7) Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where:

 

  1. the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of art. 6(1) or point (a) of art. 9(2) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of art. 6(1) GDPR and
  2. the processing is carried out by automated means.

 

In exercising the right to data portability pursuant to art. 20(1) GDPR, you have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. The exercise of the right to data portability is without prejudice to the right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”).That right does not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

 

(8) Right to object

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on point (e) or (f) of art. 6(1) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.

Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data will no longer be processed for such purposes.

 

In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

 

Where personal data are processed for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to art. 89(1) GDPR, you, on grounds relating to your particular situation, have the right to object to processing of personal data concerning you, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

 

You can exercise the right to object at any time by contacting the data controller concerned.

 

(9) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision:

 

  1. is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller,
  2. is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests or
  3. is based on the data subject’s explicit consent.

 

The data controller will 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.

 

The data subject can exercise this right at any time by contacting the data controller concerned.

 

(10) Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if the data subject considers that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR.

 

(11) Right to an effective judicial remedy

Without prejudice to any available administrative or non-judicial remedy, including the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority pursuant to art. 77GDPR, you have the right to an effective judicial remedy where you consider that your rights under the GDPR have been infringed as a result of the processing of your personal data in non-compliance with the GDPR.
