2       Scope of Processing Personal Data

As a matter of principle, we process personal data of our partners and interested parties only to the extent that this is necessary for the establishment or implementation of a cooperation or for processing and responding to inquiries. 

The data concerned are master or contact data of our (potential) partners or of the natural persons who serve us as contact persons at the partners, i.e. in particular name, address, telephone number and mail address as well as other data and information that you provide to us in the context of establishing contact.

The legal basis for processing for the purpose of implementing or establishing a cooperation is Art. 6 para. (1) s. 1 lit. b) GDPR. Without of the processing of contact data, this is not possible, as otherwise we have no way to contact you.

The legal basis for processing in the context of contact requests is your corresponding consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. (1) s. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

The data will only be stored as long as necessary for the implementation or establishment of a cooperation and will be deleted thereafter, unless we are obliged to store the data for a longer period pursuant to Art. 6 para. (1) s. 1 lit. c) GDPR due to tax and commercial law retention and documentation obligations (e.g. from the German Commercial Code (HGB), Criminal Code (StGB) or Tax Code (AO)), you have consented to a storage beyond this pursuant to Art. 6 para. (1) s. 1 lit. a) GDPR or a storage beyond this is otherwise legally permissible. 

Automated decision-making including profiling does not take place.

3       Transfer of Data

Your data will be treated in strict confidence and are secured against unauthorized access. In our company, only those employees who need this data for the establishment or implementation of a cooperation or for processing and responding to inquiries have access to your data.

IT service providers who support us as processors may, under certain circumstances, have access to personal data. This processing always takes place within the framework of a data processing agreement in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. 

These processors process the data on our behalf and exclusively according to our instructions. In this case we are legally responsible for appropriate data protection measures at the companies we commission as processors. The companies have been carefully selected by us, commissioned in writing in accordance with the legal requirements, are bound by our instructions and are regularly checked. 

Apart from that, a transfer to third parties is not intended and will of course not take place, unless you expressly give us your consent to the transfer or we are obliged or entitled to transfer the data independently of your consent according to applicable legal regulations. Such a case could be, for example, if it would be necessary to pass on data to a court or an authority in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

In some cases we may transfer personal data to third countries outside the EU. In any case, we will ensure an adequate level of data protection in accordance with European standards.

4       Rights of Data Subjects

As data subject, you have the right:

  • 4.1 pursuant to Art. 7 para. (3) GDPR to revoke your consent to us at any time. As a result, we are not allowed to continue the data processing for the future, if it was based on the consent;

  • 4.6 pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR, to receive your personal data that you have provided us with in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request its transfer to another responsible party.
