Principles of data processing

You came to this page via a link because you want to find out how we handle your personal data.

In order to fulfil our information obligations according to Art. 12 et seq. of the Data Protection Basic Regulation (DSGVO), we would be pleased to provide you with the following information on data protection: 

Who is responsible for data processing?

The person responsible within the meaning of data protection law is

Pauwelsstr. 17
52074 Aachen

You will find further information on our company, details of authorised representatives and other contact details in the imprint on our website:

Which data of yours are processed by us for which purpose?

If we have received data from you, we will only process it for the purposes for which we received or collected it.

Data processing for other purposes can only be considered if the necessary legal requirements pursuant to Art. 6) Para. 4 DSGVO have been met. In this case, we will of course comply with any information obligations under Art. 13) Para. 3 DSGVO and Art. 14) Para. 4 DSGVO.

On what legal basis is this based?

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is in principle Art. 6 DSGVO, unless there are specific legal provisions. In particular, the following possibilities can be considered here:

  • Consent (Art. 6) para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO)
  • Data processing for the performance of contracts (Art. 6) Para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO
  • Data processing on the basis of a balancing of interests (Art. 6) para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO)
  • Data processing to fulfil a legal obligation (Art. 6) Para. 1 lit. c) DSGVO)

If personal data is processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.

If we process data on the basis of a weighing of interests, you as the person concerned have the right to object to the processing of personal data, taking into account the provisions of Art. 21 DSGVO.

How long will the data be stored?

We process the data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose.

Insofar as legal storage obligations exist - e.g. in commercial law or tax law - the relevant personal data is stored for the duration of the storage obligation. After the storage obligation has expired, we check whether there is any further need for processing. If there is no further necessity, the data will be deleted.

As a matter of principle, we carry out an examination of data towards the end of a calendar year with regard to the need for further processing. Due to the amount of data, this check is carried out with regard to specific data types or purposes of processing.

Of course, you can at any time (see below) request information about the personal data we have stored about you and, if this is not necessary, request that the data be deleted or that processing be restricted.

Which recipients will the data be transferred to?

Your personal data will only be forwarded to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the contract with you, if the forwarding is permissible on the basis of a weighing of interests within the meaning of Art. 6) Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO, if we are legally obligated to the forwarding or if you have given your consent in this respect.

Where is the data processed?

Your personal data will be processed by us exclusively in computer centres of the Federal Republic of Germany/European Union.

Your rights as a “person affected”

You have the right to information about the personal data processed by us about your Person.

In the case of a request for information which is not made in writing, we ask for your understanding that we may then demand proof from you that you are the person you claim to be.

Furthermore, you have the right to correction or deletion or to restriction of the processing to the extent to which you are legally entitled to do so.

Furthermore, you have the right to object to the processing within the scope of the statutory provisions. The same applies to a right to data Transfer.

In particular, you have a right of objection under Art. 21) Para. 1 and 2 DSGVO against the processing of your data in connection with direct advertising if this is done on the basis of a weighing of interests.

We have appointed a data protection officer in our company. You can reach him as follows:

Right of appeal

You have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of personal data by us.
