Your rights as a data subject

First of all, we would like to inform you here about your rights as a data subject. These rights are standardised in Articles 15 - 22 EU-DS-GVO. This includes:

•    The right to information (Art. 15 EU-DS GMO),
•    The right to deletion (Art. 17 EU-DS-GVO),
•    The right of rectification (Art. 16 EU-DS-GVO),
•    The right to data transferability (Art. 20 EU-DSGVO),
•    The right to restrict data processing (Art. 18 EU-DS-GVO),
•    The right to object to data processing (Art. 21 EU-DS-GVO).

To exercise these rights, please contact: datenschutz@waldner.de. The same applies if you have questions about data processing in our company or wish to revoke any consent you have given. You also have the right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority.

Rights of objection

Please note the following in connection with rights of objection:

If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object to this data processing at any time without giving reasons. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to direct marketing.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes. The objection is free of charge and can be made in any form, if possible to: datenschutz@waldner.de.

In the event that we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you can object to this processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

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

Purposes and legal bases of data processing

When processing your personal data, the provisions of the EUDS-GVO and all other applicable data protection regulations are observed. The legal basis for data processing results in particular from Art. 6 EU-DS-GVO.

We use your data for business initiation, to fulfil contractual and legal obligations, to implement the contractual relationship, to offer products and services and to strengthen the customer relationship, which may also include analyses for marketing purposes and direct advertising.

Your consent to data processing may also constitute a data protection permission. Before giving your consent, we will inform you about the purpose of data processing and your right of withdrawal.

Should the consent also refer to the processing of special categories of personal data, we will expressly point this out in the consent. Processing of special categories of personal data in accordance with Art. 9 EU-DS-GVO will only be carried out if this is required by legal regulations and there is no reason to assume that your legitimate interest in excluding the processing outweighs the data.

Transfer to third parties

We will only pass on your data to third parties within the framework of the legal provisions or with the appropriate consent. Otherwise, your data will not be passed on to third parties, unless we are obliged to do so by mandatory legal provisions (passing on to external bodies such as supervisory authorities or law enforcement agencies).

Recipients of the data / categories of recipients

Within our company, we ensure that only those persons receive your data who need it to fulfil contractual and legal obligations.

In certain cases, service providers support our specialist departments in fulfilling their tasks. The necessary data protection agreements have been concluded with all service providers. These include in particular IT service providers and agencies.

Third country transfer / Third country transfer intention

Data will only be transferred to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) if this is necessary for the execution of the contractual obligation, if it is required by law or if you have given us your consent.

We do not currently transfer your personal data to any service provider or group company outside the European Economic Area.

Data storage duration

We store your data as long as they are needed for the respective processing purpose. Please note that numerous retention periods require that data is (must be) still stored. This applies in particular to storage obligations under commercial or tax law (e.g. German Commercial Code, German Fiscal Code, etc.). Provided that there are no further storage obligations, the data will be routinely deleted once the purpose has been achieved.

In addition, we may retain data if you have given us permission to do so or if legal disputes arise and we use evidence within the scope of legal limitation periods, which can be up to thirty years; the regular limitation period is three years.

Secure transmission of your data

In order to protect the data stored with us in the best possible way against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons, we use appropriate technical and organizational security measures. The security levels are continuously reviewed in cooperation with security experts and adapted to new security standards.

The data exchange from and to our website is always encrypted. We offer HTTPS as a transmission protocol for our website, always using the latest encryption protocols. In addition, there is the possibility of using alternative communication channels (e.g. by post).

Obligation to provide the data

Contact form / contacting by e-mail (Art. 6 (1) lit. a, b EU-DS GMO)

There is a contact form on our website which can be used for electronic contact. If you write to us via the contact form, we process the data you provide in the contact form to contact you and answer your questions and requests.

Here the principle of data economy and data avoidance is observed, in that you only have to provide the data that we absolutely need to contact you. These are your e-mail address and the message field itself. In addition, your IP address is processed for technical reasons and for legal protection. All other data are voluntary fields and can be provided optionally (e.g. for a more individual answer to your questions).

In order to protect the security and confidentiality of your data in the best possible way, we implement appropriate security measures. Your request is transmitted to us in encrypted form.

If you contact us by e-mail, we will process the personal data provided in the e-mail solely for the purpose of processing your request. If you do not use the offered forms to contact us, no further data collection will take place.

For reasons of technical security (in particular to defend against attempts to attack our web server), this data is stored in accordance with Art. 6 (1) letter F EU-DS-GVO. After 7 days at the latest, anonymisation takes place by shortening the IP address so that no reference to the user is established.

In the context of a contact inquiry we collect and process the following data:

•    Name
•    Email address
•    Information about wishes and interests

Automated individual case decisions

We do not use purely automated processing to make a decision.

Google reCAPTCHA

Google uses the following information to determine whether you are a human or a computer: IP address of the end device used, the website you visit with us and on which the captcha is embedded, the date and duration of your visit, recognition data of the type of browser and operating system used, Google account if you are logged in at Google, mouse movements on the reCaptcha areas as well as tasks in which you have to identify images.
