III. General information on data processing

 

1. Scope of the processing of personal data

 

We only collect and use our users’ personal data as far as this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. The collection and use of our users’ personal data is regularly only done on receipt of the user’s consent. An exception applies in cases where prior obtention of consent is impossible for specific reasons and legal regulations permit the processing of the data.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

 

If we obtain your consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

Art. 6 para. 1(b) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which you are a contractual party. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to perform pre-contractual measures.

Art. 6 para. 1(c) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis where the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which we are subject.

If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest on the part of our company or a third party and your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh the former interest, then Art. 6 para. 1(f) GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for processing.

3. Data deletion and retention period

 

Your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of its retention no longer applies. Retention can also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in regulations, laws or other regulations under EU law by which we are governed. The data shall also be blocked or deleted if a retention period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a requirement for further retention of the data for the conclusion of a contract or fulfilment of a contract.

IV. Provision of the website and generation of log files

 

1. Description and scope of data processing

 

Every time our website is visited, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.
The following data is collected:

(1) Operating system used
(2) Browser type / version
(3) Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
(4) Name of the file retrieved
(5) Date and time of your visit
(6) Volume of data transmitted
(7) A message indicating whether the visit was successful
(8) Requesting domain

Personal data other than this, such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail addresses, shall not be collected unless you provide this information voluntarily, for instance by registering for our newsletter or requesting information.

The data shall also be retained in the log files on our system. This data shall not be retained together with other personal data pertaining to the user. The IP address shall be automatically anonymised, i.e. the last two triplets shall be randomised.

2. Legal basis for data processing

 

The legal basis for the temporary retention of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1(f) GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

 

The temporary retention of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. The user's IP address must be retained for the duration of the session for this purpose.

It is retained in log files to ensure the full functionality of the website. The data is also used to optimise the website and ensure the security of our information technology systems. The data is not evaluated for marketing purposes within this context.

We also have a legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1(f) GDPR for these purposes.

4. Retention period

 

The data shall be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected. In relation to the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

IP addresses are automatically randomised in the log files by swapping the last two number triplets. The data is retained for 6 months for statistical evaluation.

5. Right to object and possibility of removal

 

The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the retention of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. You therefore have no possibility of objecting to this.

You have the right to request information about whether the personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you can ask to be informed about the appropriate guarantees relating to its transmission pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR.

2. Right of rectification

 

You have a right to rectify and/or complete information if the personal data concerning you that we process is incorrect or incomplete. We must rectify the information immediately.

3. Right to restrict processing

(2) the processing is illegal and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead require the restricted use of the personal data;

If the processing of the personal data concerning you has been restricted – apart from its retention – this data may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal rights, or the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or on the grounds of an important public interest on the part of the European Union or a member state.

If the restriction of processing has been limited in accordance with the above conditions, we will inform you before the restriction is lifted.

4. Right of deletion

 

a) Obligation to delete

 

You can demand that the personal data concerning you is immediately deleted and we shall be obliged to delete this data immediately if any of the following reasons apply:

(1) The personal data concerning you is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
(2) You revoke your consent on which the processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1(a) or Art. 9 para. 2(a) GDPR was based, and there is no other legal basis for processing.

c) Exceptions

 

There is no right to delete personal data where its processing is essential

(1) to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
(2) to fulfil a legal obligation which requires processing under the law of the European Union or of the member states by which we are governed, or to perform a task which is in the public interest, or in the exercise of the public authority entrusted to us;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health, as set out in Art. 9 para. 2(h) and (i) and Art. 9 para. 3 GDPR;
(4) for archival purposes in the public interest, for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 GDPR, to the extent that the law referred to in section a) is likely to make it impossible or seriously impair the attainment of the objectives of this processing, or
(5) for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

5. Right to information

 

If you have claimed the right to rectify, delete or restrict the processing of your personal data by us, we are obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you has been disclosed of this rectification or deletion of the data or restriction of its processing, unless this proves to be impossible or involves disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed about these recipients.

6. Right to data transmission

 

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided us with in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another responsible body without any obstruction by the responsible body to whom the personal data has been provided, so long as

(1) the personal data is processed on the basis of consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1(a) or Art. 9 para. 2(a) GDPR or is based on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1(b) GDPR and
(2) processing is carried out by automated processes.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to demand that the personal data concerning you is transferred directly by a responsible body to another responsible body, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons may not be adversely affected by this.

7. Right of objection

 

You have the right, for reasons that arise from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you, which is based on Art. 6 para. 1(e) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing of which serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If you object to processing for direct mail purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

In connection with the use of information society services, you have the possibility of exercising your right of objection by automated procedures using technical specifications, irrespective of Directive 2002/58/EC.

8. Right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law

 

You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of this consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent prior to the revocation.

9. Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

 

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state in which you reside, work or the place of the suspected infringement, if you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is in breach of the GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the appeal was lodged shall inform the complainant of the state of play and the results of the appeal, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Art. 78 GDPR.

The supervisory authority responsible for our company is:

Federal Commissioner for Data Protection in Lower Saxony
