INFORMATION ON THE RESPONSIBLE AUTHORITY
The authority responsible for data processing on this website is:
Dr. Heinz Wübbena
29308 Winsen/Aller, Germany
phone: +49 5143 912542
The responsible authority is the person or entity who alone or jointly with others makes decisions on the purpose and means of processing personal data (e.g. name, email address, etc.).
WITHDRAWING CONSENT TO DATA PROCESSING
Some data processing is only possible with your explicit consent. You can withdraw the consent you have given at any time. You can do this simply through a message to us via email. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of data processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES AND TO THE PROCESSING OF DATA FOR DIRECT MARKETING (ARTICLE 21 OF GDPR)
If data processing takes place in accordance with Article 6 (1) e or f of GDPR, you have the right at any time, on compelling legitimate grounds relating to your particular situation, to object to the processing of your personal data; this also applies to profiling based on these regulations. The actual legal foundation on which processing is based can be found in this data privacy statement. If you object, we shall no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (objections under Article 21 (1) of GDPR).
If your personal data is processed for the purposes of direct marketing, you have the right at any time to withdraw consent to the processing of your personal data for such advertising; this also applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data shall no longer be processed for direct marketing (objections under Article 21 (2) of GDPR).
RIGHT TO LODGE A COMPLAINT WITH THE RELEVANT SUPERVISORY AUTHORITY
In the case of breaches to GDPR, the affected party shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of his or her habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement. The right to lodge a complaint remains without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
RIGHT TO DATA PORTABILITY
You have the right to receive data that we have processed by automated means on the basis that you have given consent or if it is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract, and to receive it for yourself or for a third party, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. If you request to have the personal data transmitted directly to another controller, this will be carried out where technically feasible.
SSL/ TLS ENCRYPTION
This website uses SSL/TLS encryption for security purposes and for safe transmission of sensitive content, such as requests or enquiries that you may send us, as website managers. You can recognise encrypted connections by an ‘https://’ instead of an ‘http://’ at the beginning of the website address, and by the padlock symbol in your browser line. When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data that you send us cannot be intercepted and read by a third party.
DISCLOSURE, BLOCKING, ERASURE AND RECTIFICATION
Within the framework of existing legislation, you have the right at any time to free disclosure of your stored personal data and its origin, the recipients of your data as well as the purpose of the storage, as well as a right to have this data corrected, blocked or erased. You can address any further queries about personal data, or anything else, to us by using the address in this website’s legal section at any time.
RIGHT TO RESTRICTION OF PROCESSING
You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted. You can request this by using the address in this website’s legal section at any time. The right to restriction of processing applies in the following cases:
- If you contest the accuracy of the personal data stored, we normally require some time to enable us to verify its accuracy. You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted for the period when this verification is taking place.
- If the processing of your personal data is or was done in an unlawful manner, you can request the restriction of the data’s use instead of its erasure.
- If we no longer need your personal data, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted, rather than being erased, if you require them for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
- If you have objected, pursuant to Article 21 (1) of GDPR, an assessment needs to be carried out to decide whether your interests or ours are overriding. Until such a decision is made, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data can, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.
OBJECTION TO RECEIVING PROMOTIONAL EMAILS
Within the framework of the obligations for a legal section on this website, the use of published contact data for transmitting promotional material and information that has not been expressly requested is hereby rejected. The website owners expressly reserve the right of legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as through spam mail.
DATA COLLECTION BY OUR WEBSITE
Websites sometimes use what is known as cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and they do not contain viruses. Cookies are intended to make our service safer, more effective and more user-friendly. Cookies are small text files which are temporarily filed on your computer and stored on your browser. Most of the cookies we use are what is known as ‘session cookies’. They are automatically erased at the end of your session. Other cookies are stored on your computer until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser automatically the next time you visit our website. You can configure your browser so as to be informed about the placement of cookies, to decide to accept these on a case-by-case basis or to completely exclude all incoming cookies, or to automatically delete cookies when the browser is closed. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of our website may be restricted. Cookies that are necessary for the electronic communication process, or for providing certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping cart function), are stored in accordance with Article 6 (1) of GDPR. The website owner has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically faultless, optimised provision of their services. When other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your usage behaviour) are stored, they are handled separately and not covered by this data privacy statement.
SERVER LOG FILES
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in what is known as server log
files that your browser automatically transmits to us. This information consists of:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the computer used for website access
- Time of server request
- IP address
None of this data will be merged with other data sources.
This data is collected in accordance with Article 6 (1) of GDPR. The website owner has a legitimate interest in the technically faultless, optimised provision of their services: this is why server log files need to be collected.
When you use the contact form to send us an enquiry, we store what you fill in on the form, including the contact data you have given for the purpose of responding to your enquiry, and in the event of further questions. We do not give out this data to anyone without your permission.
Data given on the contact form is only processed if we have your consent to do so (Article 6 (1) of GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. You can do this simply through a message to us via email. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of data processing operations based on consent before its withdrawal.
The data that you have given us via the contact form will remain with us until you instruct us to delete it, until you withdraw your consent for it to be stored or until the purpose for storing the data ceases to exist (e.g. after your enquiry has been dealt with). Mandatory legal regulations – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
ENQUIRIES VIA EMAIL, TELEPHONE OR FAX
If you contact us by email, telephone or fax, the details of your enquiry will be stored and processed, including the following personal data: name and enquiry, for the purpose of the treatment of your request. We do not give out this data to anyone without your permission.
This data is processed in accordance with Article 6 (1) of GDPR, provided that your enquiry relates to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Article 6 (1) of GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) of GDPR), when we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of the enquiry directed to us.
The data sent to us when you fill out a contact form will remain with us, until you instruct us to delete it, until you withdraw your consent for it to be stored or until the purpose for storing the data ceases to exist (e.g. after your enquiry has been dealt with). Mandatory legal regulations – in particular legal retention periods – remain unaffected.
DATA PROCESSING (CUSTOMER AND CONTRACT DATA)
We only collect, process and use personal data when it is necessary for the establishment, development, or modification of the contractual relationship (inventory data). This is carried out in accordance with Article 6 (1) of GDPR, which allows the processing of data for fulfilling a contract or pre-contractual measures. We collect, process and use personal data concerning the usage of our website (user data) only insofar as this is required to enable the user to use or be invoiced for our services.
The customer data collected is deleted after the contract is fulfilled or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
