2. General information on data processing

Information about our authorizations

We process personal data within the legally permissible limits. This means that data processing operations are based on a legal basis. These are standardised in Art. 6 Para. 1 GDPR. Most data processing operations are based on a legitimate interest on our part (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR), on processing operations necessary for the performance of the contract (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR) or on the basis of consent granted by you (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). In the latter case you will be informed separately (e.g. via a cookie banner) of the consent procedure.

Personal data will only be passed on in the cases described below.

We process personal data only for clear purposes (Art. 5 para. 1 lit. b GDPR). As soon as the purpose of the processing ceases to apply, your personal data will be deleted or protected by technical and organisational measures (e.g. by pseudonymisation).

The same applies to the expiry of a prescribed storage period, subject to the cases in which further storage is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract. In addition, a legal obligation may arise for longer storage or disclosure to third parties (in particular to law enforcement agencies). In other cases, the storage period and type of data collected as well as the type of data processing depends on which functions of the website you use in each individual case. We will be happy to provide you with information on this in individual cases, in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR.

Categories of data

The categories of data that we address in this privacy policy relate in particular to the following data:

- Master data (e.g. names, addresses, dates of birth),

- Contact details (e.g. e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, messenger services),

- Content data (e.g. text entries, photographs, videos, contents of documents/files),

- Contract data (e.g. subject matter of contract, terms, customer category),

- Usage data (e.g. history on our website, use of certain contents, access times),

- Connection data (e.g. device information, IP addresses, URL referrer).

3. Data processing in connection with the use of the website

The use of the website with all its functions requires the processing of certain personal data.

3.1 Informational use of the services of the website

Calling up the website for purely informational purposes requires the following personal data and information to be processed: the operating system used, the address of the terminal device with which you access the website (IP address) and the time at which the website is called up. All this information is transmitted automatically from your browser, unless you have configured it in such a way that transmission of the information is suppressed.

This personal data is processed for the purpose of the functionality and optimization of the website, as well as to ensure the security of our information technology systems. These purposes are at the same time legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR.

The storage period of your personal data is a maximum of 14 days. This personal data is not merged with other data sources. Data will only be passed on to third parties in necessary cases. Subject to further provisions of this privacy policy, data will not be transferred to third countries or international organisations.

3.2 Creation and use of a user account

You can create a user account (hereinafter also referred to as "profile") in our services in order to take advantage of our services and features. If you do so, the personal data you provide there will be transmitted to us by your browser and stored in our information technology systems. Your IP address and time of registration are also stored. When you log in to your profile, we place cookies on your terminal device to enable you to remain logged in - even if you have to reload the website in the meantime. By creating your profile you can use the functions of our website.

The processing procedures associated with the creation of a profile serve the purpose of being able to assign future usage procedures and to be able to call up our entire range of products. The processing operations are therefore required in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

The storage of IP address and time of registration is necessary to ensure the security of our information technology systems. This is also in our legitimate interest, which is why the processing is also lawful according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The personal data entered by you will be stored until the time of deletion of your profile or, if applicable, beyond that, only as long as the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of any contract.

A transfer of data to third parties is not intended.

3.3 Contact form / contacting by e-mail

Processed data categories are master data, contact data, content data, possibly usage data, connection data and possibly contract data. In individual cases, we forward this data to companies affiliated with us, i.e. only within our company/group. The legal basis of the processing depends on the purpose:

- Basically, it is based on our legitimate interest and thus on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR;

- If the aim is to conclude a contract, the authorization is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

The legal basis for the integration of Helpcrunch therefore results from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

5.3 Right to limit processing

Under the following conditions, you may request the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning you:

- if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time which enables the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;

- the processing is unlawful and you object to the deletion of the personal data and instead request the restriction of the use of the personal data;

- the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need the personal data in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims; or

- if you have lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DPA and it has not yet been established whether the legitimate reasons given by the controller outweigh your reasons.

- If the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, such data may be processed, with the exception of storage, only with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If the restriction on processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

5.4 Right of deletion

5.4.1 You may request the controller to delete immediately the personal data concerning you and the controller is obliged to delete such data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:

- the personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed

- you revoke your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a DPA and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

5.4.2 If the controller has made public the personal data concerning you and is obliged to delete them pursuant to Article 17 paragraph 1 GDPR, he shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform data controllers who process the personal data that you, as a data subject, have requested them to delete all links to these personal data or copies or replications of these personal data.

5.4.3 The right of cancellation does not apply where processing is necessary

- for archiving, scientific or historical research purposes in the public interest or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 para. 1 GDPR, insofar as the law referred to in para. 1 is likely to render the attainment of the objectives of such processing impossible or seriously prejudice it, or

- to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

5.5 Right to information

If you have asserted the right to rectify, erase or limit the processing vis-à-vis the controller, the controller is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification, erasure or limitation of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

They have the right to be informed of these recipients by the person responsible.

5.6 Right to data transferability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the data controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to have this data communicated to another person in charge without interference from the person in charge to whom the personal data has been communicated, provided that

the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR and

the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to obtain that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to data transferability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

5.7 Right of objection

You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless he can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing which are justified on grounds of protection and which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, insofar as it is linked to such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for the purposes of direct marketing, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for those purposes.

You have the possibility to exercise your right of objection in relation to the use of information society services, notwithstanding the Directive 2002/58/EC, by using automated procedures involving technical specifications.

5.8 Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. Revocation of your consent does not affect the legality of the processing that has taken place on the basis of your consent until revocation.

The processing is lawful until your revocation - the revocation therefore only affects the processing after receipt of your revocation. You can informally revoke your consent by mail or e-mail. Your personal data will then no longer be processed, subject to the permission of another legal basis. If this is not the case, your data must be deleted immediately after the revocation in accordance with Art. 17 para. 2 GDPR. Your right to revoke your consent subject to the above-mentioned conditions is guaranteed.

Your revocation must be addressed to:

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which you are resident, your place of work or the place where the alleged infringement occurred, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you is in breach of the DPA.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 GDPR.

6. Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

Automated decisions in individual cases, including profiling, are not carried out.
