The third parties, in turn, are obliged to comply with the statutory provisions when handling and processing this data.

 

A transfer to authorities and state institutions entitled to receive information will only take place within the framework of the legal obligations to provide information and in the event of a court decision obligating us to do so.

Server log files are stored on the server for 7 days, anonymized for another 7 days and finally deleted permanently after 14 days.

Pursuant to Art. 17 EU-DSGVO, you have the right to demand that we delete personal data concerning you without undue delay. We are obliged to delete personal data without undue delay if one of the reasons in Art. 17 (1) EU-DSGVO applies. These reasons include, for example, that the data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.

 

4. right to restriction of processing

 

Pursuant to Art. 18 EU-DSGVO, you have the right to demand that we restrict processing if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 EU-DSGVO applies.

6. right of objection

 

Pursuant to Art. 21 EU-DSGVO, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data relating to you if such data is processed on the basis of Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) EU-DSGVO and there are grounds for doing so based on your personal situation.

VII. Online presences / company profile in social media

 

Our company has online presences on various social media and platforms. Through this, we simplify the search for our services for interested parties and offer an additional channel of communication.

 

The purpose of the processing of user data by the respective social media and platforms is usually user-specific advertising, i.e. individualized advertising can be displayed that corresponds to the presumed interests of the user or results from the user's previous usage behavior. For this purpose, cookies are stored on the end devices of the users. These cookies can store the usage behavior and thus map the areas of interest.

 

It is possible that the registered office of a social medium or platform is located in a third country, i.e. in a country in which the GDPR has no direct legal effect. In this case, the transfer of data will only take place if your consent is given, an adequate level of data protection prevails, or other legal permission exists. US providers may operate under the Privacy Shield agreement (EU-US Privacy Shield), which means that the requirements of the Privacy Shield agreement are similar to the level of data protection in the European Union and that the data is treated accordingly.

We would like to make it clear that users should contact the respective third-party providers directly in the event of information requests and/or the assertion of other data subject rights. They have insight and access rights to the user data stored and processed there and can provide information and/or take measures accordingly. If you contact us directly, we will try to support your request as best we can. However, since we have no insight into or access to the data stored by third-party providers, our options for action are limited.

 

Please inform yourself about the data processing principles of the respective companies using the corresponding data protection statements.

We use the following third-party services:

- Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4. Ireland.

It is possible that the registered office of a third-party provider is located in a third country, i.e., a country in which the GDPR does not have direct legal effect. In this case, data will only be transferred if your consent is given, an adequate level of data protection prevails, or other legal permission exists. Google, Facebook/Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and MailChimp operate under the Privacy Shield agreement (EU-US Privacy Shield), which means that the requirements of the Privacy Shield agreement are equivalent to the level of data protection in the European Union and that the data is treated accordingly.
