How do we protect your data?
In accordance with GDPR Article 32, we take appropriate technical measures that take technical standards, implementation costs, and the nature, scope, circumstance, and purpose of processing as well as the likelihood and severity of the risk to your rights and freedoms into consideration. Technical and organisational measures are used to ensure a level of appropriate protection to avoid any possible risks. Measures include ensuring confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data by controlling physical access to the data, as well as its access, input, disclosure, the securing of availability, and its separation. We have also set up procedures to ensure data subject rights, data deletion, and data vulnerability. In accordance with GDPR Article 25, the protection of personal data is already considered from the development phase (while selecting hardware, software, and others) on.
Your data is protected electronically, technically, contractually, and administratively against misuse and loss through various measures. We use security techniques (including SSL encryption, cryptography) to protect your data against access by unauthorized third parties.
Will your data be shared with third parties?
If your data is disclosed to a contracted partner or third party, then this is done under a legal contract and is protected.
In order to be able to offer you an optimal service, we use a number of contracted service providers who work on our behalf and in accordance with GDPR Article 28.
Transfers to third countries
If we process any data in a third country (outside of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)), or this happens in the context of third party services, or the procurement or transmission of data to third parties, then this will only be done if it is necessary to fulfil our (pre-) contractual obligations, based on your consent, due to a legal obligation or based on our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we only process data in a third country if certain conditions of GDPR Article 44 are met. This means that processing will be done only when certain requirements, such as meeting officially recognised EU level standards of data protection or observing officially recognised special contractual obligations (so-called "standard contractual clauses").
What are your rights?
You have a right to freely access your stored data as well as the right to correct, delete, or block any data. You can also object to the transference of this data at any time. Please contact us for further information or to withdraw your consent: firstname.lastname@example.org. You also have the right of appeal to a regulatory body.
When will your data be deleted?
When contacting us, e.g. via e-mail or through the contact form, your details are used to process your enquiry in accordance with GDPR Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. b), or with consent granted by the user in accordance with GDPR Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. a). This information may be stored in our systems.
We delete the data if it is no longer required. We review the necessity to keep the information every two years. We store user requests from users with permanent accounts and refer to the above for deletion under the "Provision of contractual services". In the case of legal archiving obligations, the deletion takes place after expiration of the respective legally prescribed periods (after 6 years in the case of commercial law and after 10 years in the case of tax law).
Collection of access data and log files
On the basis of our legitimate interests within GDPR Article 6(1)(f), we collect data each time the server is accessed through which this service is provided (so-called server log files). The access data includes the date and time of retrieval, page accessed, browser type and version, the user's operating system, possible error details, referrer URL (the previously visited page), User ID (internal customer number), and the requesting provider.
For security purposes, log file information is stored until it is no longer required (e.g. to verify and eradicate errors or to prevent misuse or fraud). Once its purpose is served, this information is deleted or made anonymous. Certain data may only be deleted once the case has been closed.
