Privacy notices for customers and other data subjects - valid from 25.05.2018

With the following information, we would like to give you an overview of the processing of your personal data by us and your rights under data protection law. Which data is processed in detail and how it is used depends largely on the services requested or agreed upon. Therefore, not all parts of this information will apply to you.
We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection notice.
The following data protection information explains what data we collect and what we use it for.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

What sources and data do we use?

We process personal data that we receive from our customers or other data subjects in the course of our business relationship. In addition, we process - to the extent necessary for the provision of our services - personal data that we obtain from publicly accessible sources (e.g. debtors' registers, land registers, commercial and association registers, the press, the Internet) in a permissible manner or that are transmitted to us by other third parties with authorization.
Relevant personal data are personal details (name, address and other contact details, date and place of birth and nationality), identification data (e.g. ID card data) and authentication data (e.g. specimen signature). In addition, this may also include data from the fulfillment of our contractual obligations (e.g. turnover data in payment transactions).

What do we process your data for (purpose of processing) and on what legal basis?

We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG)
a) for the fulfillment of contractual obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 b DSGVO).
Data is processed for the provision of services and orders in the context of the performance of our contracts with our customers. Further details on the data processing purposes can be found in the relevant contractual documents.
b) within the framework of the balancing of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO).
Where necessary, we process your data beyond the actual performance of the contract to protect legitimate interests of us or third parties. Examples:

  • Examination and optimization of procedures for demand analysis for the purpose of direct customer contact,
  • Advertising or market and opinion research insofar as you have not objected to the use of your data,
  • Assertion of legal claims and defense in legal disputes,
  • Ensuring IT security and the company's IT operations
  • Prevention and detection of crime,
  • Building and facility security measures (e.g., access controls),
  • Measures to ensure the right of domicile,
  • Risk management in the company.

c) based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a DSGVO)
Insofar as you have given us consent to process personal data for certain purposes (e.g. forwarding of data, photographs in the context of events, newsletter dispatch), the lawfulness of this processing is based on your consent. Any consent given can be revoked at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent given to us before the DSGVO came into force, i.e. before May 25, 2018. The revocation of consent only takes effect for the future and does not affect the lawfulness of the data processed until the revocation.
d) due to legal requirements (Art. 6 para. 1 c DSGVO) or in the public interest (Art. 6 para. 1 e DSGVO).
In addition, as a company we are subject to various legal obligations, i.e. legal requirements (e.g. Money Laundering Act, tax laws). The purposes of the processing include, among others, identity and age verification, fraud and money laundering prevention, the fulfillment of control and reporting obligations, and the assessment and management of risks in the company.

Who gets my data?

Within the company, those departments will receive access to your data that need it to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations. Service providers and vicarious agents employed by us may also receive data for these purposes if they in particular maintain data secrecy. These are companies in the categories of credit services, IT services, logistics, printing services, telecommunications, consulting, and sales and marketing.
With regard to the transfer of data to recipients outside of our company, it should first be noted that we as a company are obligated to maintain secrecy about all customer-related facts and evaluations of which we become aware. As a matter of principle, we may only pass on information about our customers if this is required by law or if the customer has consented. Under these conditions, recipients of personal data may be, for example:

  • Public bodies and institutions (e.g. law enforcement agencies, family courts, land registry offices) if there is a legal or official obligation,
  • Creditors or insolvency administrators inquiring in the context of a compulsory execution,
  • Service providers that we use in the context of order processing relationships.

Other data recipients may be those entities for which you have given us your consent to transfer data, or to which we are authorized to transfer personal data based on a balancing of interests.

Is data transferred to a third country or to an international organization?

A data transfer to bodies in states outside the European Union (so-called third countries) takes place as far as

  • it is required by law (e.g. reporting obligations under tax law) or
  • you have given us your consent.

How long will my data be stored?

We process and store your personal data as long as this is necessary for the fulfillment of our contractual and legal obligations.
If the data are no longer required for the fulfillment of contractual or legal obligations, they are regularly deleted, unless their - temporary - further processing is necessary for the following purposes:

  • Fulfillment of retention obligations under commercial and tax law, which may result, for example, from: German Commercial Code (HGB), German Fiscal Code (AO), and German Money Laundering Act (GwG). The periods specified there for storage and documentation are generally two to ten years.
  • preservation of evidence within the framework of the statutory limitation provisions. According to Sections 195 et seq. of the German Civil Code (BGB), these limitation periods can be up to 30 years, with the regular limitation period being 3 years.

What data protection rights do I have?

Every data subject has the right to information under Article 15 of the GDPR, the right to rectification under Article 16 of the GDPR, the right to erasure under Article 17 of the GDPR, the right to restriction of processing under Article 18 of the GDPR, the right to object under Article 21 of the GDPR and the right to data portability under Article 20 of the GDPR. With regard to the right to information and the right to erasure, the restrictions pursuant to Sections 34 and 35 BDSG apply. In addition, there is a right of appeal to a competent data protection supervisory authority (Article 77 DSGVO in conjunction with Section 19 BDSG).
You may revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent given to us before the DSGVO came into force, i.e. before May 25, 2018. Please note that the revocation only takes effect for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected.

Is there an obligation for me to provide data?

Within the scope of our business relationship, you must provide those personal data that are necessary for the establishment, execution and termination of a business relationship and for the fulfillment of the associated contractual obligations, or which we are required to collect by law. Without this data, we will generally not be able to enter into, perform and terminate a contract with you.
In particular, we are required by money laundering regulations to identify you by means of your identification document prior to the establishment of the business relationship and to collect and record your name, place of birth, date of birth, nationality, address and identification data. In order for us to be able to fulfill this legal obligation, you must provide us with the necessary information and documents in accordance with the Money Laundering Act and notify us immediately of any changes that arise in the course of the business relationship. If you fail to provide us with the necessary information and documents, we may not enter into or continue the business relationship requested by you.
