General information concerning data processing

Purpose of personal data processing

We generally only process personal data of our users if this is necessary in order to provide a functional website and is required in order to use the contents of the website and our services. Our users’ personal data will only be processed if this is lawful. This is the case of the user has issued his or her consent, or if the processing is permitted by legal regulations.

Legal basis which applies to the processing of personal data in particular

Article 6(1) a EU GDPR
Should we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing procedures relating to personal data, the legal basis is
Article 6 (1) a) EU GDPR.

Article 6(1) b) EU GDPR
When processing personal data which is necessary in order to fulfil a contract where the contracting party is the data subject, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) b) EU GDPR. This also applies to processing procedures which are necessary in order to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Article 6 (1) c) EU GDPR
Should processing of personal data be necessary in order to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, the legal basis is Article 6(1) c) EU GDPR.

Article 6(1) d) EU GDPR
In case that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make the processing of personal data necessary, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) d) EU GDPR.

Article 6(1) f) EU GDPR
Should the processing be necessary in order to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and should the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the data subject not outweigh the above, the legal basis for the processing is Article 6 (1) f) EU GDPR.

Data erasure and retention period

The data subject’s personal data is generally erased or blocked, once the purpose for which it is no longer saved ceases to apply. Saving beyond this time can take place, should this be provided for by the European or national legislator in EU ordinances, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. The data will be blocked or erased should the prescribed retention period by the said norms expire, unless the continued saving of the data is necessary for conclusion or fulfilment of a contract or you issue your consent for the data to continue to be saved.

Hosting by external service providers

Our data processing primarily takes place by using “hosting providers” who provide us with storage space and processing capacities in their computer centres and who also process personal data on our behalf in accordance with our instructions. It may be the case with all functions stated below that personal data is transferred to “hosting providers”. These service providers either process data exclusively in the European Union or we have guaranteed a reasonable level of data protection, for example, with the assistance of standard European data protection clauses.

Profiling

We ourselves do not process any of your data in an automated manner with the objective of evaluating certain personal aspects (profiling). Therefore, no profiling takes place on our part.

Disclosure of data to third parties

We only transfer your data to third parties if this is necessary in order to fulfil our contractual obligations in relation to you or if we are otherwise permitted or obliged to do so by law or if you have issued us with the relevant consent.

We therefore only lawfully pass your personal data on to third parties:

• if you have issued your express consent to such in accordance with Article 6 (1) a) EU GDPR

• if the disclosure in accordance with Article 6(1) f) EU GDPR is necessary in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have a protectable interest in the non-disclosure of your data which outweighs this;

• in case that a legal obligation exists in relation to the disclosure in accordance with Article 6(1) Letter c) EU GDPR and

• this is legally permitted and is necessary in accordance with Article 6(1) b) EU GDPR in order to perform contractual relationships with you.

Transfer to state authorities

We transfer personal data to state authorities, including criminal prosecution authorities if this is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject, or if this is required in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Transfer of personal data to third countries

Should we transfer personal data to third countries, i.e. countries outside of the European Union, then this only takes place in compliance with the lawfulness requirements prescribed by law.

Categories of processed data

Should you visit our website, our system automatically records information from the computer system from which access takes place. You can find more detailed information relating to this under “provision of the website”.

Data security

During your website visit, for security reasons and in order to protect the data, we use SSL (secure socket layer) and TLS (transport layer security) encryption. Whether an individual page of our website is transferred in encrypted form can be seen from the presence of a key or lock symbol in your browser’s status bar.

We also use suitable technical and organisational security measures in order to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss or destruction or against unauthorised third party access. Our security measures are continually improved in accordance with technological developments.

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

Many data processing procedures are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke any consent which you have already issued at any time. An informal notification to us by email will suffice for this. The lawfulness of the data processing which took place prior to the revocation of consent is not affected.

Right to object to the gathering of data in certain cases and right to object to direct advertising (Article 21 EU GDPR)

Should the data processing take place in accordance with Article 6(1) e) or f) European Data Protection Regulation, you have the right at any time to raise an objection to your personal data being processed for reasons connected to your specific situation; this also applies to any processing based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which the processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. Should you raise an objection, we will no longer process your personal data, unless we can prove mandatory protectable reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the purpose of the processing is the assertion, exercising or defence of legal claims (objection in accordance with Article 21(1) EU GDPR). Should your personal data be processed in order to carry out direct advertising, you have the right to raise an objection to your personal data being processed for such advertising purposes at any time; this also applies to the profiling, should it be connected to such direct advertising. Should you raise an objection, your personal data will then no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (Article 21(2) EU GDPR).

Right to complain to the competent supervisory authority

In case of breaches of the EU GDPR, the data subject has the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of his or her usual place of residence, place of employment or location of the alleged breach. The right to complain exists regardless of other legal remedies under administrative legislation or before the courts.

Right of data portability

You have the right to have data which is processed by us in an automated manner on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to yourself or a third party in an up-to-date, machine readable format. Should you request a direct transfer of the data to another controller, this only takes place if it is technically possible.

Information, blocking, erasure and rectification

Within the framework of the applicable provisions, you have the right at any time to free-of-charge information concerning your personal data which is saved by us, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, the right to have this data rectified, blocked or erased.

For this purpose and should you have any further questions concerning personal data, you can get in touch with us at any time at the following address:

Pieron GmbH
Schlavenhorst 41
46395 Bocholt, Germany

Tel.: (+49) 2871 2121-0
Fax: (+49) 2871 2121-121
email: info@pieron.de

Right to have the processing restricted

You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. For this purpose, you can contact us at the address in the legal notice.

The right to have the processing restricted exists in the following cases:

Should you dispute the correctness of your personal data saved by us, we usually need time to investigate this. You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted for the duration of the investigation.

Should the processing of your personal data have taken place unlawfully or should it be taking place in an unlawful manner, then instead of erasure, you can request that the data processing be restricted.

Should we no longer require your personal data, but should you require this in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, you have the right to request that processing of your personal data be restricted instead of it being erased.

Should you have raised an objection in accordance with Article 21(1) EU GDPR, it is necessary to balance your interests with ours. Should it not yet be clear which interests take priority, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.

Should you have restricted the processing of your personal data, then apart from its saving, this data may only be processed with your consent, in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or in order to protect the rights of another natural or legal person of for reasons connected to an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Objection against advertising mails

The use of contact information published in accordance with the legal notice obligation to send advertising and information materials which have not been expressly requested is hereby being objected to. The operators of the sites expressly reserve the right to take legal action in case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for example, by using spam emails.

Provision of the website

Description and scope of data processing

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically records information from the computer system from which access takes place.

The following data, in particular, is gathered during this process:

• The IP address
• The element which was selected when accessing the site
• The protocol from which the site was accessed
• The browser and version
• Date and time of website access
• Quantity of data sent in bytes
• From which source and link you accessed the website

The data is saved in our system’s logfiles. This data is not saved together with other personal data of the user.

Legal basis of processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and logfiles is Article 6(1) f) EU GDPR.

Purpose of the data processing

The system has to store your IP address temporarily in order to allow the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain saved at least for the duration of the session. We save the non-anonymised IP address for 7 days in order to ensure our website’s security.

The saving in logfiles takes place in order to ensure the website’s functionality. In addition, the data helps us to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our IT systems.

These purposes also represent our legitimate interests in the data processing in accordance with Article 6(1) f) EU GDPR.

The data is not evaluated by us for marketing purposes during this process.

Duration of storage

The data is erased, once it is no longer necessary in order to achieve the purpose for which it was gathered. In case of recording the data in order to provide the website, this is the case once the respective session has come to an end.

In case of the saving of the data in logfiles, this is the case after a maximum of 6 weeks. It is possible for the data to be saved beyond the periods stated above. In such a case, the logfiles will be saved in such a way that it is no longer possible to trace the accessing client. The non-anonymised IP address will be deleted after 7 days. After the 7 days, an anonymised IP address which can no longer be used to trace a person continues to exist and this is then deleted at the latest once the purpose has been achieved.

Right of objection and correction

The recording of the data in order to provide the website and the saving of the data in logfiles is absolutely necessary in order to operate the website and to ensure its security. As a result, the user does not have a right of objection.

Order processing

We have concluded an order processing contract with our web hosting provider.
