website is:

The controller is the natural person or legal entity that
single-handedly or jointly with others makes decisions as to the
purposes of and resources for the processing of personal data (e.g.
names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide
range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your
express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have
already given us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an
informal notification via e-mail. This shall be without prejudice to the

In the event
that data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. e or f GDPR,
you have the right to at any time object to the processing of your
personal data based on grounds arising from your unique situation. This
also applies to any profiling based on these provisions. To determine
the legal basis, on which any processing of data is based, please
consult this Data Protection Declaration. If you log an objection, we
will no longer process your affected personal data, unless we are in a
position to present compelling protection worthy grounds for the
processing of your data, that outweigh your interests, rights and
freedoms or if the purpose of the processing is the claiming, exercising
or defence of legal entitlements (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1
GDPR).

If your personal data is being processed
in order to engage in direct advertising, you have the right to at any
time object to the processing of your affected personal data for the
purposes of such advertising. This also applies to profiling to the
extent that it is affiliated with such direct advertising. If you

direct advertising purposes (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 2
GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to
log a complaint with a supervisory agency, in particular in the member
state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at
the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a
complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court
proceedings available as legal recourses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that
we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your
consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a
third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should
demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will
be done only if it is technically feasible.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to
protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase
orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this
website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption programme. You can
recognise an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line
of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the
appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or
TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by
third parties.

Information about, blockage, rectification and eradication of
data

Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions,
you have the right to at any time demand information about your archived
personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the
processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data
rectified, blocked or eradicated. If you have questions about this
subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not
hesitate to contact us at any time at the address provided in section
“Information Required by Law.”

Right to demand processing restrictions

You have the right
to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of
your personal data is concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any
time at the address provided in section “Information Required by Law.”
The right to demand restriction of processing applies in the following
cases:

  • In the event that you should dispute the correctness
    of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify
    this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have
    the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal
    data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted
    in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restriction of
    the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this
    data.
  • If we do not need your personal data any longer and you
    need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entitlements, you have the
    right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data
    instead of its eradication.
  • If you have raised an objection
    pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have
    to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined
    whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of
    the processing of your personal data.

If you have
restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the
exception of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your
consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to protect
the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important
public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a member state of
the EU.

Rejection of unsolicited e-mails

We herewith object to the
use of contact information published in conjunction with the mandatory
information to be provided in section “Information Required by Law” to
send us promotional and information material that we have not expressly
requested. The operators of this website and its pages reserve the
express right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited
sending of promotional information, for instance via SPAM messages.

3. Recording of data on our website

Server log files

The provider of this website and its pages
automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log
files, which your browser communicates to us automatically. The
information comprises:

  • The type and version of browser
    used
  • The used operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • The hostname of the accessing computer
  • The time of the
    server inquiry
  • The IP address

This data is not
merged with other data sources.

This data is recorded on the
basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The operator of the website has a
legitimate interest in the technically error free depiction and the
optimization of the operator’s website. In order to achieve this, server
log files must be recorded.

Contact form

If you submit inquiries to us via our contact
form, the information provided in the contact form as well as any
contact information provided therein will be stored by us in order to
handle your inquiry and in the event that we have further questions. We
will not share this information without your consent.

Hence, the
processing of the data entered into the contact form occurs exclusively
based on your consent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). You have the right
to revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. To do so,
all you are required to do is sent us an informal notification via
e-mail. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data
collection that occurred prior to your revocation.

The
information you have entered into the contact form shall remain with us
until you ask us to eradicate the data, revoke your consent to the
archiving of data or if the purpose for which the information is being
archived no longer exists (e.g. after we have concluded our response to
your inquiry). This shall be without prejudice to any mandatory legal
provisions – in particular retention periods.

Processing of data (customer and contract data)

We collect,
process and use personal data only to the extent necessary for the
establishment, content organization or change of the legal relationship
(data inventory). These actions are taken on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1
lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of
a contract or pre-contractual actions. We collect, process and use
personal data concerning the use of our website (usage data) only to the
extent that this is necessary to make it possible for users to utilize
the services and to bill for them.

The collected customer data
shall be eradicated upon completion of the order or the termination of
the business relationship. This shall be without prejudice to any
statutory retention mandates.

Data transfer upon closing of contracts for online stores, retailers
and the shipment of merchandise

We share personal data with
third parties only if this is necessary in conjunction with the handling
of the contract; for instance, with companies entrusted with the
shipment of goods or the financial institution tasked with the
processing of payments. Any further transfer of data shall not occur or
shall only occur if you have expressly consented to the transfer. Any
sharing of your data with third parties in the absence of your express
consent, for instance for advertising purposes, shall not occur.

The basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR,
which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or
for pre-contractual actions.

4. Social media

eRecht24 Safe Sharing Tool

Users may share the content of
our website and its pages in a data protection law compliant manner on
social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+. For this purpose,
this website uses the eRecht24 Safe Sharing Tool. This tool

until the user has actively clicked on one of the buttons. The click on
this button constitutes content as defined in Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a
GDPR. This consent may be revoked by the user at any time, which shall
affect all future actions.

This tool does not automatically
transfer user data to the operators of these platforms. If the user is

pop up as soon as the social button of Facebook, Google+1, Twitter et al
is used, which allows the user to confirm the text prior to sending
it.
