Types of personal data that we process:

Depending on the customer or contractual relationship, we process the following categories of your personal data:

  • Contact details (e.g. name, address, e-mail address, telephone number)
  • Contract data within the scope of projects
  • Payment and accounting data (e.g. bank details)
  • Personal data in the context of the employment relationship

Purpose and legal basis

The personal data concerning you will be processed for the following purposes and on the basis of the following legal provisions:

  • Pre-contractual measures and performance of the contract (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. b) DSGVO
  • Data processing on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Abs.1 a DSGVO)
  • Data processing for legitimate reasons (Art. 6 Abs. 1 f DSGVO)

We also process data on the basis of Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit.c DSGVO in order to fulfil legal obligations (e.g. due to commercial or tax law requirements).

Origin of your personal data

We collect your personal data directly from you, e.g. by direct inquiries to us.

Disclosure of personal data to third parties (recipients)

Your personal data will be disclosed or transmitted within the scope of the aforementioned purposes. Recipients of personal data may, for example, be:

  • IT service providers
  • Print and shipping service providers
  • Data destruction service provider
  • Consultants and consulting companies

If data is passed on, this usually takes place as part of order processing. For this purpose, our service providers are contractually bound to secure, confidential and correct processing.

The processing of personal data takes place primarily in the territory of the European Union (EU), as far as we are active in these countries. Data will only be transferred outside the EU (in third countries) or to international organizations if the special requirements of Art. 44 ff. of the German Data Protection Act are met.

This may occur if we have to transfer personal data for a overseas project or in connection with the implementation of the project. This will then generally be known in advance by those concerned.

Period of storage

Personal data will be stored for the purposes stated for the duration necessary to fulfil the purposes and if there are no other legal storage obligations (HGB, tax code) or legal reasons for the storage. This means that we will delete your personal data after expiry of the statutory storage obligations, usually 10 years after the end of the contract.

Your rights with regard to the processing of your personal data

In particular, you have the following rights with respect to your personal data:

  • Right to information about personal data stored (Art. 15 DSGVO),
  • Right to rectification if the data stored concerning you are inaccurate, outdated or incorrect (Art. 16 DSGVO),
  • Right to deletion if the storage is inadmissible, fulfils the purpose of the processing and the storage is therefore no longer necessary or you have withdrawn your consent to the processing of certain personal data (Art. 17 DSGVO),
  • Right to limitation of processing if one of the conditions set out in Art. 18 Abs. 1 lit. a) bis d) DSGVO is met (Art. 18 DSGVO),
  • Right to transfer personal data provided by you (Art. 20 DSGVO),
  • Right to revoke a consent given, the revocation not affecting the lawfulness of the processing previously carried out on the basis of the consent (Art. 7 Abs. 3 DSGVO) and
  • Right to appeal to a supervisory authority (Art. 77 DSGVO).

Right to object

You may object to the processing of your personal data for purposes of direct marketing within the scope of the existing customer relationship at any time.

After receipt of the objection, we will no longer process the personal data for the purposes of direct marketing and will delete the data if processing is not required for other purposes (e.g. to fulfil the contract).

You may also object to other processing which we base on a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
