Your rights as a data subject
We would like to provide you with information concerning your rights as a data subject. These rights are set out in Articles 15–22 GDPR. They include:
• The right of access (Article 15 GDPR),
• The right to have data erased (Article 17 GDPR),
• The right to have data rectified (Article 16 GDPR),
• The right to data portability (Article 20 GDPR),
• The right to restrict data processing (Article 18 GDPR),
• The right to object to data processing (Article 21 GDPR).
To exercise these rights, please contact: Mr. Kalif Kock (). This also applies should you have any questions relating to data processing in our corporation. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection authority.

The right to object
With regard to the right to object, please note the following:
Should your personal data be used for the purposes of direct advertising, you have the right to object to such data processing, without having to provide reasons. This also applies to profiling, where it is used for the purposes of direct advertising.
Should you object to the processing of personal data for direct advertising, your personal data will no longer be used for this purpose. You can object to data processing free of charge, and without the need for any formalities, preferably to: Mr. Kalif Kock ()
In the event that we process your data in order to safeguard legitimate interests, you may object to such processing for reasons applicable to your specific situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
We will cease to process your personal data unless it can be demonstrated that there are mandatory legitimate grounds that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or where such processing serves to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

Purposes and legal basis for data processing
In processing your personal data, the provisions of the GDPR and all other applicable data protection legislation are taken into account. The legal basis for data processing stems particularly from Article 6 GDPR.
We use your personal data to initiate business, to fulfill contractual and legal obligations, to perform contractual relations, to offer products and services as well as to improve customer relations; this may include analysis for marketing purposes and direct advertising.
Your consent also provides a legal basis for lawful data processing. Here we provide clarification concerning the purposes of data processing and your right of withdrawal. Should your consent apply to the processing of special categories of personal data, we will expressly make this clear in the consent; Article 88(1) GDPR.
Processing of special categories of personal data within the meaning of Article 9(1) GDPR only occurs when it is mandatory according to legal requirements and there is no reasons to assume that your legitimate interests outweigh the need for processing; Article 88(1) GDPR.

Sharing with third parties
We will only share your data with third parties in the framework of legal provisions or with appropriate consent. Data is otherwise not shared with third parties, unless we are bound by mandatory legal obligations (sharing of data with external bodies such as supervisory authorities or the state prosecutor).

Data recipients / Recipient categories
At our company, we ensure that only those personnel who need your data to fulfill contractual and legal requirements come into contact with your personal data.
In certain cases service providers assist our specialist departments in carrying out their tasks. We conclude the necessary contractual framework for data protection with all service providers.

Transferring data to third countries / Intention to transfer data to third countries
Data transfer to third countries (outside the European Union and the European Economic Area) only occurs where this is necessary to fulfill the contractual relationship, is prescribed by law or where you have granted us your consent.

Data storage period
We will store the data for as long as it is needed for the specified processing purposes. Please note that numerous storage period requirements apply, and that data may need to be stored for longer. This applies particularly in the case of commercial or tax retention requirements (e.g. Commercial Code, Tax Code etc). In cases where there are no other storage obligations, once the data has fulfilled its purpose, it is routinely deleted.
However, it may occur that we continue to store data in cases where you have granted us your consent to do so, or in cases of legal disputes and where we require evidence in the context of legal statutes of limitations, which may be as much as 30 years; the usual limitation period is three years.

Secure data transfer
In order to protect the data that we store against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons, we implement appropriate technical and organizational security measures.
Data exchanges from and to our website are always encrypted. We use the HTTPS transfer protocol on our website, and always with up-to-date encryption protocols. (In addition to this there are alternative methods of communication e.g. by post).

In doing this we observe the principle of data minimization and data avoidance, so you only have to provide the data that is absolutely necessary for making contact.

In the absence of this data, we would unfortunately not be able to successfully conclude the contract, since we would be unable to perform it.
