Data privacy

Data protection information of the company Gronbach.

We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of the Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG. The use of the Internet pages of the Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could 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 the Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise 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, the Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG has implemented numerous technical and organizational 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 absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.

  • f) Pseudonymisation

4. Cookies

The internet pages of Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

Numerous Internet pages and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified by its unique cookie ID.

By using technically necessary cookies, Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the setting of cookies.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised in the interests of the user. Cookies enable us, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his access data each time he visits the website because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping basket via a cookie.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. You can also change your cookie preferences on our website at any time. Please use this Link.

5. Collection of general data and information

The website of the Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions 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 these general data and information, the Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize 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 case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, 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.

6. Subscription to our newsletters

On the website of the Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise’s newsletter on the contact form (by activating the checkbox “Yes, please add me as a potential buyer to your database to receive follow-up communications to your inquiry as well as news, updates and innovations from the Gronbach group, according to the privacy policy.”). The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.

The Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG as well as the partner companies affiliated in the Gronbach group (Wilhelm Gronbach GmbH, Gronbach GmbH, Gronbach k.s., Wilhelm Gronbach Ventilation GmbH) inform its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The enterprise’s newsletter as well as the newsletter of the affiliated companies may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping of the entire Gronbach group. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is authorized to receive the newsletter.

During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter and the newsletter of the affiliated partner companies. Each individual company of the affiliated partner companies in the Gronbach group can act as the sender of the newsletter or as a network group as a whole. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties outside the Gronbach group. The subscription to our newsletter and (at the same time) the newsletter of the affiliated partner companies may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter or directly here, alternativly here. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way. If you unsubscribe from the newsletter, this will take place simultaneously for Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG and its affiliated partner companies.

7. Newsletter-Tracking

The newsletter of the Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG and the newsletter of the affiliated partner companies contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG and the affiliated partner companies of the group may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.

Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. The Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG as well as their affiliated partner companies in the network automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

8. Contact possibility via the website

The website of the Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, 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 are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject and in the event of possible follow-up questions. For the purpose of processing your data will be processed in principle and, in particular, if the content of the communication, e.g. an inquiry, is not directly attributable to Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG, but rather permits an alternative allocation to a specific affiliated partner company in the Gronbach group, or in the case of a request for information, to the relevant companies in the Gronbach group (Gronbach Inventive Sales & Marketing GmbH & Co KG, Wilhelm Gronbach GmbH, Gronbach GmbH, Gronbach k.s., Wilhelm Gronbach Ventilation GmbH), e.g. on the basis of manufacturing or service competencies. There the further processing takes place depending on the inquiry made by you on the basis of art. 28 para. 1 DSGVO.

There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties outside the Gronbach group.
We use the WordPress plugin Antispam-Bee against spam messages, but without the transmission or matching of IP addresses.

9. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

11. Data protection for applications and in the application procedure

The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. The processing may also take place electronically. This is in particular the case when an applicant submits relevant application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form located on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents are automatically deleted 18 months after the notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller conflict with such deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

If the applicant expressly agrees to a longer storage of his/her data, for example by being included in a talent pool, his/her data will be processed accordingly through his/her consent. The deletion of the data from the talent pool takes place after one year. This consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future. To do so, simply send an e-mail to recruitinggronbach.com. Furthermore, the applicant has the option of receiving automated information about suitable vacancies by e-mail via a job alert. The applicant consents to this by registering specifically for this. This job alert can also be revoked at any time by sending an e-mail to recruitinggronbach.com.

If suitable vacancies arise for the applicant from the talent pool, we are entitled to contact the applicant.

We use the specialised software provider rexx systems GmbH, Süderstr. 75-79, D-20097 Hamburg, which uses affiliated server service providers in Germany, for the presentation of open vacancies, for the handling of the application process and for storage. We have concluded a corresponding order processing agreement with rexx systems GmbH. The data protection terms of this provider are available at https://www.rexx-systems.com/data-protection/.

12. Data protection provisions on the use and application of Matomo

The controller has integrated the Matomo component on this website. Matomo is an open source software tool for web analysis. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and evaluation of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis tool collects data on the website from which a data subject has accessed a website (so-called referrer), which sub-pages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the costs and benefits of internet advertising.
The software is operated on the server of the data controller, and the log files, which are sensitive under data protection law, are stored exclusively on this server.

The purpose of the Matomo component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. The controller uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of this website in order to compile online reports showing the activities on our internet pages.

Matomo sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. Setting the cookie enables us to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the Matomo component to transmit data to our server for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical procedure, we obtain knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which we use, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks.

By means of the cookie, personal information, such as the time of access, the place from which access originated and the frequency of visits to our website are stored. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to our server. This personal data is stored by us. We do not pass on this personal data to third parties.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Matomo from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Matomo can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programmes.

Furthermore, the data subject has the possibility to object to the collection of data generated by Matomo and related to a use of this website and to prevent such a collection. To do this, the data subject must set “Do Not Track” in their browser.

However, with the setting of the opt-out cookie, there is the possibility that the Internet pages of the controller are no longer fully usable for the data subject.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Matomo can be found at https://matomo.org/privacy/.

13. Data protection provisions about the application and use of DoubleClick

On this website, the controller has integrated components of DoubleClick by Google. DoubleClick is a trademark of Google, under which predominantly special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and publishers.

The operating company of DoubleClick by Google is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.

DoubleClick by Google transmits data to the DoubleClick server with each impression, clicks, or other activity. Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to the data subject’s browser. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick uses a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. The purpose of the cookie is the optimization and display of advertising. The cookie is used, inter alia, to display and place user-relevant advertising as well as to create or improve reports on advertising campaigns. Furthermore, the cookie serves to avoid multiple display of the same advertisement.

DoubleClick uses a cookie ID that is required to execute the technical process. For example, the cookie ID is required to display an advertisement in a browser. DoubleClick may also use the Cookie ID to record which advertisements have already been displayed in a browser in order to avoid duplications. It is also possible for DoubleClick to track conversions through the cookie ID. For instance, conversions are captured, when a user has previously been shown a DoubleClick advertising ad, and he or she subsequently makes a purchase on the advertiser’s website using the same Internet browser.

A cookie from DoubleClick does not contain any personal data. However, a DoubleClick cookie may contain additional campaign IDs. A campaign ID is used to identify campaigns that the user has already been in contact with.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a DoubleClick component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective DoubleClick component to send data for the purpose of online advertising and billing of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, Google gains knowledge of any data that Google may use to create commission calculations. Google may, inter alia, understand that the data subject has clicked on certain links on our website.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.

14. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google AdWords

On this website, the controller has integrated Google AdWords. Google AdWords is a service for Internet advertising that allows the advertiser to place ads in Google search engine results and the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define specific keywords with the help of which an ad on Google’s search results only then displayed, when the user utilizes the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. In the Google Advertising Network, the ads are distributed on relevant web pages using an automatic algorithm, taking into account the previously defined keywords.

The operating company of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.

The purpose of Google AdWords is the promotion of our website by the inclusion of relevant advertising on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of the search engine Google and an insertion of third-party advertising on our website.

If a data subject reaches our website via a Google ad, a conversion cookie is filed on the information technology system of the data subject through Google. The definition of cookies is explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after 30 days and is not used to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to check whether certain sub-pages, e.g, the shopping cart from an online shop system, were called up on our website. Through the conversion cookie, both Google and the controller can understand whether a person who reached an AdWords ad on our website generated sales, that is, executed or canceled a sale of goods.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are used in order to determine the total number of users who have been served through AdWords ads to ascertain the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads in the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the data subject.

The conversion cookie stores personal information, e.g. the Internet pages visited by the data subject. Each time we visit our Internet pages, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as stated above, by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie set by Google AdWords may be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

The data subject has a possibility of objecting to the interest based advertisement of Google. Therefore, the data subject must access from each of the browsers in use the link www.google.de/settings/ads and set the desired settings.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

15. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Remarketing

On this website, the controller has integrated Google Remarketing services. Google Remarketing is a feature of Google AdWords, which allows an enterprise to display advertising to Internet users who have previously resided on the enterprise’s Internet site. The integration of Google Remarketing therefore allows an enterprise to create user-based advertising and thus shows relevant advertisements to interested Internet users.

The operating company of the Google Remarketing services is the Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
The purpose of Google Remarketing is the insertion of interest-relevant advertising. Google Remarketing allows us to display ads on the Google network or on other websites, which are based on individual needs and matched to the interests of Internet users.

Google Remarketing sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google enables a recognition of the visitor of our website if he calls up consecutive web pages, which are also a member of the Google advertising network. With each call-up to an Internet site on which the service has been integrated by Google Remarketing, the web browser of the data subject identifies automatically with Google. During the course of this technical procedure, Google receives personal information, such as the IP address or the surfing behaviour of the user, which Google uses, inter alia, for the insertion of interest relevant advertising.
The cookie is used to store personal information, e.g. the Internet pages visited by the data subject. Each time we visit our Internet pages, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to the interest-based advertising by Google. For this purpose, the data subject must call up the link to www.google.de/settings/ads and make the desired settings on each Internet browser used by the data subject.
Further information and the actual data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

16. Adobe Fonts Privacy Policy

We use the service of “Adobe Typekit” on our website, which is a web font hosting service. The service provider is the American company Adobe Inc. The Irish company Adobe Systems Software Ireland Companies, 4-6 Riverwalk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, Ireland, is responsible for the European region.

Adobe also processes your data in the USA, among other places. We would like to point out that according to the opinion of the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for the transfer of data to the USA. This may be associated with various risks to the lawfulness and security of the data processing.

Adobe uses so-called standard contractual clauses (= Art. 46. para. 2 and 3 DSGVO) as the basis for data processing with recipients based in third countries (outside the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, i.e. in particular the USA) or a transfer of data there. Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) are templates provided by the EU Commission and are intended to ensure that your data comply with European data protection standards even if they are transferred to third countries (such as the USA) and stored there. Through these clauses, Adobe undertakes to comply with the European level of data protection when processing your relevant data, even if the data is stored, processed and managed in the US. These clauses are based on an implementing decision of the EU Commission. You can find the decision and the corresponding standard contractual clauses here, among other places: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj?locale=de

More information on the data processed and the standard contractual clauses at Adobe can be found at https://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/eudatatransfers.html.

17. Use of the Facebook tracking pixel

We also use plugins (Facebook Open Graph, formerly: Facebook Social Graph) of the company Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA or its subsidiary Facebook Ireland Ltd, Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”) on the website to integrate elements (e.g. public Facebook posts).

If the user has activated scripts in his internet browser and has not installed a script blocker, his internet browser will establish a direct connection between the user’s internet browser and the Facebook server and transmit personal data (e.g. IP address) to Facebook without asking separately. When logged in, it is possible to directly assign the data to the user’s Facebook profile. The DFL Foundation does not know which data Facebook links to the personal data received and for what purposes Facebook uses this data.

Further information can be found in Facebook’s privacy policy.

If the user does not want Facebook to be able to associate the visit to the website with his or her Facebook user account, he or she should log out of his or her Facebook user account and deactivate the execution of script content from Facebook in his or her internet browser (e.g. with script blockers from www.noscript.net or www.ghostery.com).

18. Use of WordFence Security

The controller has integrated the “WordFence” plugin into its website, which provides enhanced security functions for the controller. For this purpose, WordFence allows an overview of the visitors to the website as well as other functions to maintain security. This protects the processor from brute force attacks, hacker attacks and malware. For this protection, WordFence sets a cookie on the data subject’s usage system. What cookies are has already been explained at the top of this privacy statement. They are used to store access data and to optimise the technical and content-related aspects of the website of the person responsible.

The operator of the plugin is Defiant, Inc,1700 Westlake Ave N Ste 200, Seattle, WA 9810. Information on the operator’s data protection can be found at https://www.wordfence.com/privacy-policy/.

19. 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. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by 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 his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then 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 abovementioned 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 is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

20. 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 favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.

21. 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 expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

22. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the 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 it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides 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 him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.

Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.

23. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.

24. Changes to our data protection regulations

We reserve the right to amend this data protection declaration in the event of legal requirements or changes to services on occasion. When you return, these changes/additions/updates will take effect.

25. Disagree against advertising emails

We hereby disagree to send us unsolicited advertising and information material through the use of our contact data published in the imprint regulations. The operators of this website expressly reserve the right to take legal action against unsolicited mailing or e-mailing of spam and other similar advertising materials.

26. SSL encoding

For security reasons in the transmission of data, we use the state-of-the-art encryption method (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
