Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

1. Privacy Policy
We are delighted that you are visiting our web presence.

The controller according to Art. 4 para. 7 of the GDPR for this web presence is Landgard eG, Veilingstr. A1, 47638 Straelen-Herongen, datenschutz@landgard.de (hereinafter referred to as „Landgard“).

Landgard places great importance on the protection of personal data to preserve your privacy rights. Data protection is an essential quality feature to us when we design and execute our business processes. With this Privacy Policy we intend to inform you about our data protection principles when processing and using personal data.

Personal data are any and all information about your identity, such as your name, your email address, your postal address. But also communication data, such as telephone and fax numbers and even the IP address of the terminal device you have used to access this website are deemed to be personal data.

Whenever you use the Internet, you leave behind traces in the form of personal data, with two distinct means of transmission having to be differentiated here. On the one hand, personal data, such as the IP address, are automatically transmitted as protocol data by the technical equipment employed for using the Internet. These data, however, require disproportionate effort to clearly identify a particular individual. The other way of transmitting of data is the voluntary disclosure of personal data by you as the user. If, for instance, you request online information from us – e.g. by using our contact form – we need at least your valid email address, a name and/or your phone number to answer your request. If you wish us to send something to you by post, you would be required to tell us your name and the postal address. We will delete the data obtained in this connection after their storage are no longer required, or will restrict their processing if statutory retention obligations exist. To prevent any misuse by unauthorised persons when using our closed user groups, users are required to log in or register; when doing so, personal data are collected.

1.1 Modifications to this Privacy Policy
The use of collected data is always subject to the Privacy Policy valid at the time when the data are collected.

We reserve the right to modify the Privacy Policy so as to adapt it to any changes in the factual and legal situations. In such case, we publish the new and updated Privacy Policy on our website, which shall be valid as from that time onwards. If appropriate, we will provide information on any changes to this Privacy Policy, if any, in a suitable place. This applies, in particular, if we intend to use previously collected data for purposes other than the initial purpose.
If the use of your personal data is based on your consent, we use your data only to the extent you have consented to, irrespective of any modification of this Privacy Policy having been made by that time. If applicable, we will ask you in such cases to grant us your consent to the intended change in the use of the data.

1.2 Scope
This web presence contains links to websites of providers, which are not affiliated with Landgard or have not been created by Landgard. This Privacy Policy does not apply to such websites. The content or the data protection principles of linked, external sites are the sole responsibility of their operators.

2. Collection, processing, use and transmission of personal data
We collect personal data within the framework of the services offered via our web presence. When we collect data, those input fields we require for providing a service are marked as necessary data. If you provide us with additional data, you do this on a voluntary basis. This applies, in particular, to data you transmit to us when you apply online for a job or participate in a survey or sweepstake.

All personal data provided to us are stored, processed and used according to the laws on data protection and data security applicable in the Federal Republic of Germany.

Apart from the use of our website merely for information purposes, we offer various services which you may use if you are interested in them. To this end, you are usually requested to submit additional personal data which we will use for providing the relevant service and to which the principles of data processing specified herein apply.

Intragroup data transmission may be required for answering your questions, processing your request or providing you with access to specific information or offers. Whenever data are transmitted between group companies, the applicable legal provisions are complied with.

For executing certain business processes, Landgard also uses external service providers for commissioned data processing, such as forwarding agencies, IT service providers for hosting our websites or distributing the newsletter as well as for destroying files and documents. When selecting and commissioning external service providers, Landgard rigorously ensures that data protection regulations are met and the requirements, instructions and guidelines of Landgard binding on the service providers are strictly complied with. Moreover, we may transmit your personal data to third parties when sales actions, sweepstakes, contracts or similar services are offered by us in conjunction with partners. You will be provided with more detailed information when you submit your personal data.

All employees of the companies belonging to the Landgard Group are bound to data secrecy and the observance of confidentiality. As a rule, your personal data are not transmitted to any third party outside the Landgard Group. Of course, we will not disclose, sell or market otherwise your personal data, not even in the form of extracts.

In case of a credit risk, we may transmit your data (name, address, email address, details regarding the company and information regarding the contract and receivables) for the purpose of an assessment of creditworthiness as well as a check for deliverability to the indicated address as well as for the purpose of debt collection management to IHD Gesellschaft für Kredit und Forderungsmanagement mbH, Augustinusstr. 11 B, 50226 Frechen, and to other cooperating credit agencies, if appropriate. The legal basis of any such transmission is provided by Art. 6 I b of the GDPR and Art. 6 I f of the GDPR. Transmissions on the basis of Art. 6 I f of the GDPR are only permitted to the extent that they are required to exercise the legitimate interests of our company and such interests are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require the protection of personal data.

For the purpose of making decisions regarding the establishment, performance or termination of a contractual relationship we additionally collect or use automated probability values; address and other data may be included in their calculation.

For detailed information about our contract partner, IHD, within the meaning of Art. 14 of the GDPR, that is, its business purpose, the purpose of any data storage there, the legal basis, the recipients of data at IHD, the right to access and the right to erasure and rectification as well as profiling, please refer to www.ihd.de/datenschutz/Artikel14.html. Information on its contract partners in the field of credit agency can be found at: www.ihd.de/datenschutz#vertragspartner

2.1 Use of personal data for marketing purposes
With your consent, we will use the personal data you have provided to us (e.g. surname, first name, address, telephone/fax numbers, email address) also for marketing and market and opinion research purposes.

If you have consented to the processing of your data, you may withdraw such consent at any time. Such withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of the processing of your personal data based on your consent until the time of withdrawal.

2.2 Automatically collected, non-personal or only indirectly personal data
The temporary storage of the IP address or the domain name or the name of the Internet service provider of the computers accessing our websites cannot be technically prevented.

If you visit the website merely for information purposes, i.e. you do not register or do not transmit information otherwise, we only collect such personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data that are of technical relevance to us to show you our website and ensure stability and security:

  • IP address
  • name of the last website visited by you
  • names of the websites visited by you within our web presence
  • name of the website from which a file has been accessed
  • name of the file accessed
  • volume of the data transmitted
  • access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.)
  • date and time of all accesses and transactions
  • browser information, if appropriate, such as type, version, settings
  • operating system, if appropriate

Evaluations of such information are not related to persons, but are performed in an anonymised manner. Such statistical evaluations inform Landgard about the use and acceptance of its web presence. They are used to improve the attractiveness, content and functionality of the websites.

3. Cookies and comparable technologies
In addition to the above data, cookies are stored on your computer when you visit our website. Cookies are small files that are normally stored on the hard drive of your terminal device and contain information directly related to a website visited. To this end, the web server on which the website visited by you is stored, sends a request to the web browser on your terminal device to store information temporarily or permanently as a file (cookie). The web server itself, i.e. the external PC, is not able to access your hard drive directly; it can neither read data on your hard drive nor write data on it.

Cookies present no threat to your terminal device.

It depends on the setting of the web browser used by you whether cookies are accepted by your terminal device and are placed there.

Sometimes, certain websites or their functionality can be fully used only with the help of cookies, e.g. if an online offer contains a shopping cart function. Here, the cookie remembers the items and quantities ordered, etc. and on which pages the associated information on the respective item is or was displayed. Usually, such cookies are active only for the duration of the Internet session and are deleted as soon as the browser is closed and the Internet is left (so-called transient cookies).

However, there are also cookies which are not deleted when the browser is closed, but are stored by the browser in a special cookie directory (so-called persistent cookies). Apart from the user identifier, these cookies usually contain further personal data and, thus, facilitate the recognition of the user. As a result, it may be possible, for instance, that a user is personally welcomed when accessing a certain web presence again, or data, such as name and address, are already preassigned, or the content of a certain web page is displayed to the user immediately. These cookies are automatically deleted from the browser only after the expiry date assigned to this cookie has occurred or, in the case of any intense use of the Internet, the maximum capacity of the directory used by the browser for storing cookies has been reached and, hence, old cookies are overwritten by new cookies.

Moreover, so-called flash cookies may be used. These are not recognised by your browser, but by your flash plug-in. Furthermore, we may use HTML5 storage objects that are placed on your terminal device. These objects store the necessary data irrespective of the browser you use and have no automatic expiry date. If you do not wish flash cookies to be processed, you are required to install a suitable add-on. You can avoid the use of HTML5 storage objects by using the private mode of your browser.

Most of the web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. However, you can set the web browser, for instance, such that it does not accept any cookies at all or you are notified each time when a cookie is sent so that you can then decide for yourself whether or not you want to accept the cookie. Please note that, in such cases, you may not be able to use all functions of this website.

Even if you tolerate cookies being automatically accepted or have consented to the acceptance of a cookie, you may cause the browser at any time to delete all cookies stored. Other data recorded and stored by your browser for each access to the Internet, in particular the history content, can be also deleted by means of the user-controlled deletion function of the browser. The history function allows to display not only the addresses of all websites visited by you, but also entries you may have made during such visits, such as code words, passwords, bank details, etc.

The manual deletion options offered by the web browser for cookies, history, temporary data, etc. should be used regularly. Available options for settings and deletions are documented in the manuals of the browsers used.

3.1 Cookies placed by Landgard
Landgard also uses cookies. The legal basis for processing the IP address is Art. 6 para 1 lit. f of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest for collecting data results from the fact that we need the use of cookies for the purpose of optimising our offers.

Of course, most of our websites can be accessed and viewed, even if all cookies sent by us have been rejected. However, several sites, e.g. web sites restricted to a closed user group, require the placement of transient cookies for full use and functionality. Following your visit of our web presence you may safely and with confidence use the deletion function of your browser to delete any remaining cookies.

3.2 Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and facilitate an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transferred to, and stored on, a server operated by Google in the USA. In case of the IP anonymisation on this website, however, your IP address will first be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activities and providing other services relating to the use of the website and the use of the internet for the website operator.

Google will not associate the IP address that your browser transmits within the scope of Google Analytics with any other data held by Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting an appropriate setting in your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) at Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". Thus, only truncated IP addresses are further processed and personal traceability is ruled out. As soon as data collected about you facilitates personal identification, this will immediately be eliminated and the personal data is deleted without delay.

We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our website and be able to regularly improve it. The statistical data obtained will help us to improve our offers and make them more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transmitted to the USA, Google has committed to applying the principles of the EU-US Privacy Shield,
https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for using Google Analytics is art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f of the GDPR.

Information of the third-party provider: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. Terms and Conditions of Use: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, Data Protection Overview: http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html, as well as Privacy Policy: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

3.3 Social media plugins
This website contains temporary programs („plugins“) for the social media networks Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, U.S.A. ("Facebook") or Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, U.S.A. (Google+), Twitter Inc.: 539 Bryant St. Suite 402, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA (Twitter), Pinterest, Inc., 808 Brannan St, San Francisco, CA 94103, U.S.A. (Pinterest) and Instagram, Inc. 181 South Park Street, Suite 2, San Francisco, CA 94107, U.S.A. In addition, this website contains temporary plugins of Xing AG, Gänsemarkt 43, 20534 Hamburg, as well as of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, California 94043, U.S.A.

Here, we use the so-called two-click solution. This means that whenever you visit our site, initially no personal data are transmitted to the providers of the plugins. You can identify the provider of the plugin by means of the initials or the logo marked on the box. With this button we give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plugin. Only if you click on the marked field and thus activate the same, the plugin provider will be informed that you have accessed the relevant website of our online offer. In addition, the data indicated in the next but one section are transmitted. With regard to Facebook, the respective providers in Germany have declared that the IP address will by anonymised immediately upon its collection. Therefore, by activating the plugins, personal data from you will be transmitted to the respective plugin provider and stored with the same (in the case of US providers such storage will be effected in the United States). Since the plugin provider collects data, in particular, by means of cookies, we recommend you to delete all cookies by using the security settings of your browser before you click on the greyed out box.

We neither have any influence on the collected data and data processing operations nor do we have any knowledge of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing and the storage periods. Moreover, we do not have information about the deletion of collected data by the plugin provider.

The plugin provider stores the data collected about you in the form of user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or designing its website in a customised manner. Such evaluation is performed, in particular, for customised advertising (also for users not logged in) and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the generation of such user profiles; if you want to exercise this right, you are required to contact the respective plugin provider. With the plugins, we give you the opportunity to interact with the social networks and other users such that we are able to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for using the plugins is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f of the GDPR.

Data are transmitted irrespective of the fact whether you have an account with the plugin provider and/or are logged in with the same. If you are logged in with the plugin provider, your data collected by us will be assigned directly to your account with the plugin provider. When you press the activated button and, for instance, link the site, the plugin provider will also store this information in your user account and publicly communicate the same to your contacts. We recommend you to log out whenever you have used a social network, however in particular before you activate the button since, in this way, you can prevent assignment to your profile by the plugin provider.

For further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and data processing by the plugin provider, please refer to the privacy policy statements of these providers as indicated below. There, you will also find further information on your rights and relevant setting options to protect your privacy:

3.4 Integration of YouTube videos
Sometimes, we integrate YouTube videos in our online offers, that are stored at http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. They are all integrated in the „extended data protection mode“, i.e. no data are transmitted to YouTube about you as a user if you do not play these videos. Only when you play the videos, the data indicated in the following section will be transmitted. We have no influence on this data transmission.

By visiting the website, YouTube will receive the information that you have accessed the respective sub-page of our website. This happens irrespective of whether YouTube provides a user account to which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data are assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish any assignment with your profile on YouTube, you need to log out before you activate the button. YouTube stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or designing its website in a customised manner. Such evaluation is performed, in particular, for the provision of customised advertising (even for users not logged in) and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the generation of such user profiles; if you want to exercise this right, you are required to contact YouTube.

For further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and data processing by YouTube, please refer to its privacy policy statement. There, you will also find further information on your rights and the relevant setting options to protect your privacy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Google processes your personal data also in the United States and has submitted itself to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

3.5    Integration of Google Maps
On this website we use the offers of Google Maps. This enables us to show you interactive maps directly on our website, and enables you to make comfortable use of the map function.

When you visit the website, Google will receive the information that you have accessed the respective sub-page of our website. In addition, the data indicated above are transmitted. This happens irrespective of whether Google provides a user account to which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data are assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish any assignment with your profile on Google, you need to log out before you activate the button. Google stores your data in the form of user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or designing its website in a customised manner. Such evaluation is performed, in particular, for the provision of customised advertising (even for users not logged in) and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the generation of such user profiles; if you wish to exercise this right, you need to contact Google.

For further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and data processing by the plugin provider, please refer to the privacy policy statements of the provider.

Google processes your personal data also in the United States and has submitted itself to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

4. Active contents
Active content means the execution of invisible functions on a website. Usually, such contents are hidden programs or scripts integrated in the website. They are executed as soon as the website concerned is accessed or the content is displayed. The best known are: Java-Applets, ActiveX-Controls, JavaScript or VBScript. The development of active contents has considerably extended the usability and range of functions of websites. They make it possible to play videos on a website, add music to sites, display animated graphics, fade in current news texts in a ticker on the page. In contrast to cookies, active contents involve a higher security risk. Since some of them install themselves on your terminal device, computer viruses, diallers and trojans may concurrently be installed also. In contrast to cookies, active contents involve the risk that third parties get unrestricted access to your terminal device and, hence, your data.

As for cookies, almost all web browsers are set by default such that active contents are automatically accepted to be executable or executed.

Due to the immense threat emanating from these active contents, you should change the settings of your browser for active contents at least such that you are always notified by the prompt whenever a website contains an active content and tries to install or start it. There are no binding security regulations for the developers of such contents. If you do not wish to suppress active contents in general, but want to decide on your own by means of the prompt whether to accept them, even the so-called certified, signed or other contents marked as trusted must not be excluded. If you deactivate or reject active contents, the catch is that you lose a great deal of comfort when surfing on the websites, your browser may not be able to display certain contents at all or suppress them in certain areas, functions may not be executed and, of course, you will frequently be asked for inputs.

4.1 Active contents on the websites of Landgard
Unfortunately, the great variety of functions of this web presence is also based on active contents. Although we can guarantee that we use active contents exclusively for the purposes of functionality and do not intend at any time to cause damage to you or even access your data, we have not yet found a solution to do without such contents entirely without compromising the functionality of individual web pages. This means that, if you have deactivated active contents in the settings of your browser, some of our web pages will not be properly displayed or functions and contents may be missing or inaccessible.

5. Use of our webshop
If you wish to order products via our webshop, it is necessary for the sake of concluding a contract that you provide your personal data as required by us for processing your order. Mandatory information necessary for executing the contracts are marked separately; any further details are voluntary. We will process the data transmitted by you for processing your order. To this end, we may forward your payment details to our bankers. The legal basis here is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b of the GDPR.

When the customer account is generated, your data are revocably stored as a service for further purchases. The legal basis here is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b of the GDPR. You may delete any other data, including your user account, under Customer Services at any time. Basically, your data will be stored only as long as you have an account in our webshop. However, legal commercial and tax regulations require us to store your address, payment and order details for the period of ten years. Upon deletion of your account, your data will, therefore, be used only for complying with the statutory obligations.

Moreover, we are entitled to process the data provided by you to inform you about further interesting products of our portfolio or send you emails with technical information. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) of the GDRP. Our legitimate interest for collecting data results from the fact that we need the data for the purpose of optimising our offers.

To prevent unauthorised access to your data by any third party, in particular to your financial data, the ordering process will be encrypted by means of TLS technology.

6. Data we process when you subscribe to our newsletter
When you register a user account and visit our website, you may also ask for being sent news about our products and services (hereinafter referred to as the „Newsletter“).

The precondition for receiving the newsletter is that you are in the possession of a valid email address and have subscribed to the newsletter. For legal reasons, in connection with the double opt-in process, a confirmation email is sent initially to the email address entered by you for receiving the newsletter. This confirmation email serves to verify whether you as the holder of this email address authorise the receipt of the newsletter. The subscription will not become effective until after you have clicked on the link in the confirmation email. Both when you subscribe to our newsletter and when you use the confirmation link and log in as a registered user, your Internet protocol address (IP address) together with the current date and time are stored. These data are stored to ensure the provision of our services and prevent their misuse. If appropriate, these data facilitate the investigation and detection of criminal offences and the enforcement of private rights of any third parties. To this extent, storage of these data is necessary for our protection, is therefore performed in our legitimate interest and is based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) of the GDPR.

Provided that you have given your consent, we process your data as follows:

The personal data collected within the framework of the subscription to the newsletter are used for distributing the newsletter, and are transmitted to our service provider (presently: CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede) who sends the newsletter, in compliance with data protection regulations. For further information, please refer to section 2 of this data protection information.

Moreover, you may receive notifications by email to the extent necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or any related registration (e.g. changes of the news service or modifications to the technical conditions). You may unsubscribe the newsletter at any time. The relating link to this end is included at the end of each newsletter email. Moreover, there is the option to unsubscribe the newsletter at any time also directly on our website.

By subscribing to our newsletter service you consent to the receipt of the newsletter and the processing of these data as described above. In this respect, data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) of the GDPR.

Please note that we will evaluate your user behaviour when we transmit the newsletter. To facilitate such evaluation, the sent emails contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels that present one-pixel image files stored on our website. For evaluation, we link the data provided by you and the web beacons with your email address and an individual ID. Also the links in the newsletter contain this ID.

We use the data obtained in this way for generating a user profile to tailor the newsletter to your individual interests. Whenever you read our newsletters, we record the links in them you click and draw conclusions as to your personal interests. Then, we link these data with your activities on our website.

You may object to this tracking at any time by unsubscribing the newsletter by means of the separate link provided in each email. Of course, you can also use any other contact channel to inform us if you wish to unsubscribe from the newsletter. The information will remain stored as long as you remain subscribed to the newsletter. After it has been unsubscribed, we will store the data for merely statistical purposes and in an anonymised form.

The data collected during the subscription of the newsletter remain stored until you have unsubscribed the newsletter. Any storage beyond is possible in the cases described in section 4.

Our Data Protection Officer or another employee of our company will arrange for any such restriction in processing.

Your right to restriction of processing is based on Art. 18 of the GDPR.

7.5    Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. This includes the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from us, where (i) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) of the GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) of the GDPR, and (ii) the processing is carried out by automated means, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us.

Furthermore, when exercising your right to data transferability, you have the right to demand that such personal data are transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and insofar as this does not impair the rights and freedoms of other persons (Art. 20 Para. 1 GDPR), insofar as the rights and freedoms of other persons are not impaired.

Your respective right to data portability is based on Art. 20 of the GDPR.

7.6    Right to object
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e) or f) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We will no longer process the personal data in case of an objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If we process personal data for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data for such marketing purposes. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to any such direct marketing. Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process the personal data for such purposes.

Moreover, you have the right, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning you, where such personal data are processed by us for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 of the GDPR, unless processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

For exercising the right to object, you may directly contact our Data Protection Officer or any other employee of our company. Moreover, in the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding the Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

Your right to object is based on Art. 21 of the GDPR.

7.7    Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you, unless the decision is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between you and us, or is authorised by Union or Member State law to which we are subject and such law lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or is based on your explicit consent.

If the decision is necessary for entering into, and performing, a contract between you and us, or it is based on your explicit consent, we implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of our company, to express your own point of view and to contest the decision.

If you want to assert rights regarding automated decisions, you may contact our Data Protection Officer or any other employee of our company at any time.

These rights are based on Art. 22 of the GDPR.

7.8    Right to withdraw consent under data protection law
You have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data, wholly or in part, at any time.

The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on any such consent given before its withdrawal.

If you want to assert your right to withdrawal of consent, you may contact our Data Protection Officer or any other employee of our company at any time. You can find the contact details at the top of this data protection information, immediately above the summary.

Your right to withdraw a consent given under data protection law is based on Art. 7 para. 3 of the GDPR.

7.9    Right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority
You have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority. This right is based on Art. 56 para. 2 of the GDPR.
