General information

In order to ensure that you are fully informed about the use of your personal data and your rights on our websites, we ask you to read the following information in accordance with Art. 13 GDPR at regular intervals due to new legal requirements and technical developments. We make every effort to make the data privacy declaration as comprehensible as possible. If a section does not appear comprehensible to you, please let us know so that we can make improvements at the aforementioned point.

Which data are processed and why are they processed?

When we speak of data processing, this includes in particular the collection, storage, transmission, blocking, deletion as well as the anonymization, pseudonymization, encryption or other use of personal data. According to Art. 4 para. 1 GDPR, “personal data” is any information by which you can be personally identified, directly or indirectly. This includes, for example, your name, address, e-mail address but also IP address and user behavior.

We process your personal data only in compliance with the statutory provisions. For example, it is absolutely necessary to record your master data in order to conclude a contract with you. In addition, we process data if we have your consent or if we have a legitimate interest in processing (e.g. creating profiles for advertising and marketing purposes or the economic operation of our website through technically necessary cookies).

For security reasons, to protect personal data and other confidential content, this website uses SSL encryption. An encrypted connection can be recognized by the character string “https://” and/or a lock symbol in the address line of your browser.

Data transmission to third parties

Your data will not be rented, lent or sold by us. The data will not be passed on to third parties, unless this is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b, because of a legitimate interest on our part according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f, because we are legally obliged to do so according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c or because of an explicit consent on your part (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a), which can be revoked at any time.

The protection of your data is very important to us, and we carefully and conscientiously check every contractual partner of ours to ensure that they protect data in accordance with legal regulations and what organizational and technical measures are taken. For this reason, we also conclude an order data processing contract with the order processor in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.

Data transfer to third countries

According to the basic data privacy regulation, third countries are all countries outside the EU or the EEA (European Economic Area). Third countries include the USA, Japan, Australia and Switzerland. Special precautions must be taken with regard to the protection of personal data, as many third countries have a lower level of data privacy than countries within the EU.

Personal data may only be transferred to third countries under the following conditions. These also apply if the personal data is further transmitted by the receiving agency in the third country:

  • The EU Commission’s assessment of the adequacy of the level of data privacy in the third country: The EU Commission determines an adequate level of data privacy for countries such as Andorra, New Zealand, Switzerland and others.
  • the existence of suitable guarantees, such as binding internal data privacy guidelines in accordance with Art. 47 GDPR, standard protection clauses of the Commission in accordance with Art. 46 para. 2 lit. c and d GDPR, as well as an approved certification mechanism in accordance with Art. 46 para. 2 lit. e and f GDPR. See also Art. 63 GDPRand Art. 46 GDPRfor further information.
  • the existence of exceptions for specific cases, such as the existence of the data subject’s express consent to the transfer of his or her data in the specific case, after he or she has been informed of the potential risks of such data transfers without the existence of an adequacy finding and without suitable guarantees in accordance with Art. 49 GDPR.

Special case data transfer to US companies:

Until now, US trading companies have been able to obtain certification under the EU-US Privacy Shield, a mechanism that allows personal data to be transferred from the EU to the US and stored there. Nowadays, this concerns a great deal of personal data, which is collected using social plugins or Google Analytics, for example.

This Privacy Shield has now been declared invalid by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in a decision dated July 16, 2020. As a result, the USA is not recognized by the EU as a country that has an adequate level of data privacy and therefore cannot guarantee the protection of personal data. Furthermore, the standard clauses are considered lawful which guarantee compliance with the level of protection required by EU law. However, those responsible are now required to assess the level of data privacy in the country of the data recipient and to suspend the transfer if it is not deemed appropriate.

The USA is thus considered an unsafe third country. If the level of data privacy in the country of the data recipient cannot be assessed because the complex data traffic flows cannot be traced, Art. 49 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a provides for the exception of the explicit consent of the data subject to the proposed data transfer, for a transfer of personal data to an unsafe third country such as the USA.

In the course of the transfer of data to an unsafe third country with your express consent, a risk of data privacy violations with resulting damages for the data subject cannot be excluded.

In particular, this means that the personal data transferred to the USA will be evaluated by US authorities within the framework of American data monitoring programs and that EU citizens will not have access to appropriate legal protection.

According to the GDPR, damages can be of a physical, material or immaterial nature (Recital 75 sentence 1 GDPR):

  • Discrimination
  • Identity theft or fraud
  • financial loss
  • Damage to reputation
  • economic or social disadvantages
  • Complicating the exercise of rights and preventing control by data subjects
  • Exclusion or limitation of the exercise of rights and freedoms
  • Profiling or usage by evaluating personal aspects
  • physical damage resulting from actions based on incorrect or disclosed data

For further information please refer to the short paper No. 18 DSK.

Consent can be revoked at any time, whereby all data transmissions for the purpose for which the data was collected are immediately stopped and the collected data deleted.

On which legal basis do we rely for the processing of personal data?

For the processing of data which is necessary for the performance of a contract in which the contractual partner is the data subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to all processing operations for pre-contractual measures.

For the case that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil legal obligations, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. If the processing serves to safeguard the legitimate interests of the controller or of a third party, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require the protection of personal data outweigh these, then the processing is lawful under Art. 6 Art. 1 lit. f GDPR.

In addition, Art. 6 Art.1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis if you have given us your express, voluntary consent for the processing of your personal data for a specific purpose. It is also possible that an employment contract may be concluded with applicants. Art. 88 para. 1 GDPR in conjunction with § 26 BDSG serves as legal basis for the purpose of the employment relationship.

More detailed information regarding the legality of the processing of personal data is listed in Art. 6 GDPR .

Retention and data deletion

If the stored data is no longer required for its intended purpose and there are no legal retention periods, it will be deleted. More detailed information on the legal retention periods can be found in §257 para. 1 HGB and §147 para. 1 A0.

Your rights

As a data subject, you are entitled to the following rights in accordance with GDPR:

Furthermore, you have the right to object in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR, provided that the processing of the data is carried out to protect legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. We will not process any data afterwards unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection. These must outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing must serve to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Right to withdraw consent

If the data processing is based on the legal basis of the consent you have given pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, you also have the right to revoke your consent at any time with immediate effect for the future. Please also note that we may need to retain certain data for a certain period of time to comply with legal requirements.

Right to complain to a data privacy authority

In addition, you have the right of appeal to a data privacy supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77 GDPR if you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data is not lawful. Responsible for these matters on RLP is:

The State Commissioner for Privacy and Freedom of Information Rhineland-Palatinate
PO box: 30 40
55020 Mainz
phone: +49 (0) 6131 208-2449

Purposes and legal basis of the processing

Google Analytics uses cookies that enable an analysis of your use of our website. The information collected by means of the cookies about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

Furthermore, we use the Demographics and Interest Reporting function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be created that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics by withdrawing consent or not accepting the specific cookies.
