Some sections of our websites contain links to third-party providers’ websites. These websites are subject to their own data protection principles. We are not responsible for their operation, including the handling of data. If you send information to or via such third-party providers’ sites, you should examine these sites’ data protection declarations before you send them information which can be assigned to your person.
To start with, only our employees obtain knowledge of your personal data. In addition, we notify your personal data, to the extent permitted or prescribed by law, to other recipients who render services for us in connection with our website. We restrict the forwarding of your personal data to what is necessary, in particular in order to be able to handle your order. Sometimes, our service providers receive your personal data as commissioned processors and are then strictly bound by our instructions in dealing with your personal data. Sometimes, the recipients act independently with your data which we transmit to them.
Below, we state the categories of recipients of your personal data to you:
· IT service providers in the administration and hosting of our website,
· logistic service providers in order to be able to send information material to you,
· laboratories, authorities and recycling service providers in order to be able to produce quotations.
We do not transmit your personal data to countries outside the EU or the EEA or to international organisations.
In use of our website purely for information, we store your personal data on our servers exclusively for the duration of your visit to the site. After you have left our website, your personal data are erased without delay. Cookies installed by us are also erased as a rule after you have left our website.
In active use of our website, we store your personal data for the duration of the reply to your inquiry or for the duration of our business relationship to start with. This also includes the preparation of a contract (pre-contractual legal relationship) and the handing of a contract.
In addition, we then store your personal data until barring by limitation of all and any legal claims from the relationship with you, in order to use them as evidence if need be. The period of barring is between 12 and 36 months as a rule, but can also be up to 30 years.
When barring occurs, we erase your personal data unless a statutory archiving period exists, for example from the German Commercial Code (§§ 238, 257, subparagraph 4, German Commercial Code) or from the German Fiscal Code (§ 147, subparagraph 3, German Fiscal Code). These archiving periods can be up to ten years.
Under the statutory preconditions, the following rights, which you can claim against us, accrue to you as a data subject:
Right to information: you are at any time entitled to demand confirmation from us within the framework of Art. 15, GDPR, whether we process personal data concerning you; if this is the case, you are further entitled within the framework of Art. 15, GDPR, to receive information about these personal data as well as certain further information (e.g. purposes of processing, categories of personal data, categories of recipients, planned storage duration, the origin of the data, the use of an automated decision-making and in the event of third-country transmission the suitable guarantees) and a copy of your data.
Right to correction: According to Art. 16, GDPR, you are entitled to demand from us that we correct personal data stored concerning you if they are incorrect or defective.
Right to erasure: Under the preconditions of Art. 17, GDPR, you are entitled to demand from us that we erase personal data concerning you without delay. Amongst other things, the right to erasure does not exist if the processing of the personal data is necessary for (i) exercising the right to freedom of expression and information, (ii) to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject (e.g. statutory archiving periods), or (iii) to establish, to exercise or to defend legal claims.
Right to restriction of the processing: Under the preconditions of Art. 18, GDPR, you are entitled to demand from us that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
Right to data portability: Under the preconditions of Art. 20, GDPR, you are entitled to demand from us that we provide the personal data concerning you which you have provided to us in a structured, customary and machine-readable format.
Right of withdrawal: You have the right to withdraw the consent to the processing of personal data at any time with an effect for the future.
Right of objection: Under the preconditions of Art. 21, GDPR, you are entitled to object to the processing of your personal data with the result that we have to end the processing of your personal data. The right of objection only exists within the limits stated in Art. 21, GDPR. In addition, our interests can contradict the ending of the processing, with the result that we are entitled to process your personal data despite your objection.
Right of complaint to a supervisory authority: Under the preconditions of Art. 77, GDPR, you are entitled to make an objection to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your place of residence, your workplace or of the place of the assumed breach, if you are of the opinion that the processing of the personal data concerning you breaches the GDPR. The right of complaint exists notwithstanding any other administrative law or judicial remedy.
The supervisory authority responsible for us is:
State Coordinator for Data Protection and Freedom of Information
North Rhine-Westphalia Kavalleriestr. 2-4 40213 Düsseldorf
Tel.: 0211/38424-0 Fax: 0211/38424-10 E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
However, we recommend that you always address a complaint to our data protection contact to start with.
Your applications for the exercising of your rights are to be addressed in writing to the address stated above under no. I or directly to our data protection contact as far as possible.
As a matter of principle, you are not obliged to notify your personal data to us. But if you do not do this, we will not be able to provide our website to you or be able to reply to your inquiries. Personal data which we do not urgently need for the aforementioned processing purposes are marked as voluntary statements by “if applicable” or another sign.
We do not use any automated decision-making / profiling (an automated analysis of your personal situation).
If you send inquiries to us by a contact form, your statements on the inquiry form including the contact data stated there by you are stored by us for the purpose of processing of the inquiry and for the event of subsequent questions. We do not forward these data without your consent.
Processing of the data entered on the contact form is thus done exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6, subparagraph 1, lit. a, GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. A notification to us by e-mail without formal requirements is sufficient for this. The lawfulness of the data processing procedures carried out until the time of the withdrawal shall remain unaffected by the latter.
The data entered in the contact form by you remain with us until you request that we erase them, withdraw your consent to storage or the purpose for the processing of the data no longer exists (e.g. following processing of your inquiry). Cogent statutory provisions – in particular archiving periods – shall remain unaffected.
