Purpose of data processing
We process personal data, especially data relating to employees, customers, suppliers and other partners for the purpose of performing business activities and fulfilling the associated legal and contractual requirements.
Processing data relating to employees and pensioners
We save and process personal data of employees in fulfillment of all contractual and legal requirements and obligations.
Personal data that is not essential to the fulfillment of contractual and legal requirements are only processed if employees have granted their permission.
Processing data relating to customers, partners and suppliers
We save and process data made available by prospective customers, customers, partners and suppliers, especially names, email addresses and telephone numbers for creating proposals and processing orders as well as fulfilling the associated contractual and legal obligations. The data may be forwarded to the authorities and public institutions if this is necessary to fulfill legal obligations.
Principles for processing personal data
Our processing of personal data is based on strict principles, which prioritize the protection and security of data and the rights of those affected.
Lawfulness & transparency
Data protection is conducted lawfully and in good faith.
The data is collected and processed for defined, clear and legitimate purposes. The processing of data is not conducted in ways not corresponding to these purposes.
Only data, which is absolutely necessary for the given purposes is collected and processed. If it is possible to achieve the purpose and the effort required is reasonable, only anonymized data is processed.
Memory limitation and deletion
Personal data is deleted as soon as the purpose for which it was originally collected ceases to apply and legal retention times do not prevent deletion. If in individual cases there are interest parties to this data worthy of protection, it is stored until the interested parties worthy of protection have been legally cleared.
Data confidentiality applies to personal data. The data is to be treated as confidential and protected against unauthorized access, improper manipulation or forwarding as well as against loss and destruction using relevant organizational and technical measures.
Personal data is to be kept correct, in full and up to date. Applicable measures are met to correct outdated, incorrect or incomplete data.
Personal data is only transferred to recipients outside of our business office and recipients in third party EU countries in compliance with applicable laws and on a lawful basis as well as observing the highest level of confidentiality and data security. We do not sell or lease personal data to third parties for their own marketing purposes.
Obligation to maintain data confidentiality
All of our employees are contractually obligated to maintain confidentiality and are regularly informed and instructed on the safe handling of personal and other critical data.
The protection of the confidentiality, availability and integrity of data is a significant task of us. The same applies equally to operational secrets, client data, personal data and other critical information.
For this purpose, technical and organizational safety measures are established and continually improved in accordance with the current standard of technology and internationally recognized best practices and safety standards.
Rights of those affected
Each affected person whose data is processed by us has the option at any time to invoke their own rights and apply these at us. To exercise your rights, you can contact us in writing at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those affected can request a disclosure at any time of which personal data is processed about them and which purposes this processing serves.
Those affected have the right to request the immediate rectification of incorrect personal data relating to them.
Affected people have the right to limit processing if the correctness of the data relating to them is disputed, the processing is unlawful, the data is no longer needed for processing or the affected people have revoked the processing.
Those affected have the right to object to the processing of personal data relating to them.
Affected people have the right to receive the personal data relating to them that they have made available to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format. They also have the right to request the transfer of this data to another responsible party provided this is technically feasible. The transferability only applies to personal data, which is processed with the help of automated processes.
Deletion – right to be forgotten
The affected person has the right to request the immediate deletion of the personal data relating to them if there is no legal basis for the processing of the data or there ceases to be such a basis, the data processing is revoked or the data processing is unlawful and no legal retention period makes deletion impossible. Data security is also important in relation to rights, so the invocation of rights is only possible after an unequivocal identification of the affected person is possible.
Continual control and improvement
The continual improvement of quality and processes is very important to us.. Adherence to data protection guidelines and the applicable legislation and the effectiveness of data protection and data security measures is measured and increased continually with the help of this process to ensure the data protection measures are run optimally.
