We are delighted about your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of SISA Studio Informatica SA. The use of the Internet pages of SISA Studio Informatica SA is possible without any provision of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special company services via our website, processing of personal data might become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject, shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to SISA Studio Informatica SA. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.
As the controller, SISA Studio Informatica SA has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so no absolute protection can be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, for example by telephone.
The data protection declaration of SISA Studio Informatica SA is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.
In this data protection declaration, we use, among other things, the following terms:
a) 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.
b) Data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
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.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
Profiling means 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, their economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
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 personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing
A controller or controller responsible for the processing is the 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.
A processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
A recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body to which the personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether they are 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.
j) Third party
A 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 authorized to process personal data.
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which they, via a statement or clear affirmative action, signify their agreement to the processing of personal data relating to themselves.
2. Name and Address of the controller
The controller responsible within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), other data protection laws applicable in Member states of the European Union and other provisions related to data protection is:
SISA Studio Informatica SA
Tel.: 061 716 94 44
By using cookies, SISA Studio Informatica SA can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.
The data subject may at any time prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deactivate the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software program. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser they are using, not all functions of our website may be entirely available.
4. Collection of general data and information
The website of SISA Studio Informatica SA collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system visits the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. The following may be collected: (1) the type and version of the browser used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, SISA Studio Informatica SA does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimise the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the case of a cyber-attack. SISA Studio Informatica SA therefore anonymously analyses collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our company, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
5. Registration on our website
The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller with the provision of personal data. They type of personal data transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject is collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller, and for their own purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or more processors (e.g. a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the controller.
By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address—assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place under consideration of the fact that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed offenses. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to safeguard the controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.
The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary provision of personal data, is intended to enable the controller to offer the data subject contents or services that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to change the personal data specified during the registration at any time, or to have them completely deleted from the database of the controller.
The data controller shall, at any time, provide information upon request to each data subject as to what kind of personal data is stored about the data subject. In addition, the data controller shall correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. In this respect, all of the controller’s employees can be reached by the data subject as contact persons.
6. Contact possibility via the website
The website of SISA Studio Informatica SA contains information that enables the possibility of initiating a quick electronic contact to our company, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller is stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.
7. Comments function in the blog on the website
SISA Studio Informatica SA offers users the possibility to leave individual comments on individual blog contributions on a blog which is on the website of the controller. A blog is a web-based, publicly accessible portal, through which one or more people called bloggers or web-bloggers may post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blogposts. Blogposts may usually receive comments submitted by third parties.
If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, the comments made by the data subject are also stored and published, as well as information on the date of the comment and on the user's (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject. In addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the data subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons and in case the data subject violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal content through a submitted comment. The storage of this personal data is, therefore, in the own interest of the data controller, so that they can exculpate themselves in the event of an infringement. This collected personal data will not be forwarded to third parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the aim of the defense of the data controller.
8. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data
The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the duration necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.
If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.
9. Right of the data subject
a) Right of confirmation
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain the confirmation from the controller as to whether or not personal data concerning themselves is being processed. If a data subject wishes to avail themselves of this right of confirmation, they may at any time contact any employee of the controller.
b) Right of access
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain free information from the controller about their personal data stored at any time, including a copy of this information. Furthermore, the European directives and regulations grant the data subject access to the following information:
- the purpose of processing
- the categories of personal data concerned
- the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data has been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations
- where possible, the envisaged period during which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period
- the existence of the right to request rectification or erasure of personal data from the controller, or restriction of processing of personal data concerning the data subject, or to object to such processing
- the existence of the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
- where the personal data is not collected from the data subject, any available information concerning its source
- the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22 (1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.
Furthermore, the data subject shall have a right to obtain information as to whether personal data is transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. Where this is the case, the data subject shall have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer.
If a data subject wishes to avail themselves of this right of access, they may at any time contact any employee of the controller.
c) Right of rectification
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning themselves. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, they may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning themselves without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not necessary:
- The personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
- The data subject withdraws consent on which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6 (1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of Article 9 (2) of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing.
- The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (2) of the GDPR.
- The personal data has been unlawfully processed.
- The personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
- The personal data was collected with regard to services offered by the information society according to Article 8 (1) of the GDPR..
If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by SISA Studio Informatica SA, they may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. An employee of SISA Studio Informatica SA shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.
Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, while taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by the aforementioned controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of this personal data, as far as processing is not required. A SISA Studio Informatica SA employee will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.
e) Right of restriction of processing
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain restriction of processing from the controller where one of the following applies:
- The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject while taking into consideration a period of time during which the controller is able to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
- The processing is unlawful, the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests restricting the use of the personal data instead.
- The controller no longer needs the personal data for processing purposes, but the data is required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
- The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of the processing of personal data stored by SISA Studio Informatica SA, they may at any time contact any employee of the controller. The employee of SISA Studio Informatica SA will arrange the restriction of the processing.
f) Right to data portability
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to receive the personal data concerning themselves and which was provided to a controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. They shall have the right to transmit that data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided as long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, in exercising their right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another where technically feasible and where doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact any employee of SISA Studio Informatica SA.
g) Right to object
Each data subject shall at any time have the right granted by the European legislator to object, on grounds relating to their particular situation, to processing of personal data concerning themselves, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
SISA Studio Informatica SA shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If SISA Studio Informatica SA processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning themselves for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to SISA Studio Informatica SA to the processing for direct marketing purposes, SISA Studio Informatica SA will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to their particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning themselves by SISA Studio Informatica SA for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact any employee of SISA Studio Informatica SA. In addition, the data subject is free in the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use their right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning themselves, or in a similar manner significantly affects themselves, as long as the decision (1) is not is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is not 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 not based on the data subject's explicit consent.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is based on the data subject's explicit consent, SISA Studio Informatica SA shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express their point of view and contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, they may at any time contact any employee of SISA Studio Informatica SA.
i) Right to withdraw data protection consent
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw their consent to processing of their personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, they may, at any time, contact any employee of SISA Studio Informatica SA.
10. Data protection for applications and the application procedures
The data controller shall collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of the processing of the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents by e-mail or by means of a web form on the website to the controller. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant by the controller, the application documents shall be automatically erased two months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller are opposed to the erasure. Other legitimate interest in this relation is, for instance, a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
The data controller has integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet, an online community that generally allows users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for exchanging opinions and experiences or it can enable the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests, among other things.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc. 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The party responsible for processing personal data if a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Each time the data controller visits one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser installed on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins is available at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_EN. As part of this technical process, Facebook is informed which specific page of our website is visited by the person concerned.
If the person concerned is logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognises which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting each time they access our website, including during the entire duration of their stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks on one of the Facebook buttons embedded on our website, for example the "Like" button, or if the person concerned submits a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.
Facebook receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged into Facebook at the same time that they access our website; this occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Facebook account before accessing our website.
The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the person concerned. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transfer to Facebook
The person responsible for processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the gathering, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data regarding which website a person concerned came from to another website (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the cost-benefit of internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The data controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the data subject's Internet connection is shortened and anonymised by Google if our Internet pages are accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another state that is a party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website in order to compile online reports for us which show the activities on our website and to provide further services in connection with the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. You will find an explanation of what cookies are in the text above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, is accessed, the Internet browser installed on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Google receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, and which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.
The cookie allows personal information such as the access time, the place from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned to be stored. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in their Internet browser and thus permanently disable the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
The data controller has embedded Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to display ads in Google's search engine results as well as in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to set pre-defined keywords that will display an ad in Google's search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-related search result. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed to topic-relevant web pages by means of an automatic algorithm and in accordance with the previously defined keywords.
The operating company of the Google AdWords services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying advertisements relevant to our interests on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine, and to also display third-party advertisements on our website.
If a person concerned reaches our website via a Google advertisement, a so-called conversion cookie is stored by Google on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart from an online shop system, have been accessed on our website. The conversion cookie enables us and Google to track whether a person who reached our website via an AdWords ad generated sales, i.e. whether they completed or abandoned a purchase.
The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to create visitor statistics for our website. These visitor statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimise our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive any information from Google that could be used to identify the person concerned.
The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the person concerned. Whenever a person visits our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the aforementioned technical process to third parties.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in their Internet browser and thus permanently disable the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the data subject has the opportunity to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do so, the person concerned must visit the link www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the Internet browsers they use and effect the desired settings at that address.
14. Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example, in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation through which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be forwarded to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In such a case, the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal grounds if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject were a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
15. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favour of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
16. Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
17. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirements; requirements necessary to enter into a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it becomes necessary that the data subject provide us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with them. The non-provision of the personal data would result in the contract with the data subject not being able to be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must reach out to one of our employees. The employee informs the data subject whether the provision of their personal data is legally or contractually required or necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide their personal data and the consequences of non-provision of their personal data.
18. Existence of automated decison-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
