Our handling of your data and your rights
– Information in accordance with Articles 13, 14 and 21 of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) –
In the following, we inform you about the processing of your personal data by us and the claims and rights to which you are entitled under the data protection regulations.
Which data is processed in detail and how it is used depends largely on the requested or agreed services.
1 Who is responsible for data processing and whom can I contact?
The responsible party is:
2 What sources and data do we use?
We process personal data that we receive from you in the course of our business relationship. In addition, we process – to the extent necessary for the provision of our services – personal data that we have permissibly received from other companies (e.g. SCHUFA) (e.g. for the execution of orders, for the performance of contracts or on the basis of consent given by you). On the other hand, we process personal data that we have permissibly obtained from publicly accessible sources (e.g. debtor directories, commercial and association registers, press, media) and may process.
Relevant personal data are personal details (name, address and other contact details, date and place of birth and nationality) and authentication data. If you book an appointment, we typically collect, among other things, name, address, telephone number, email address and date/time of the appointment.
3. What do we process your data for (purpose of processing) and on what legal basis?
We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG):
3.1 To fulfill contractual obligations (Article 6 (1b) DSGVO).
The processing of personal data (Article 4 No. 2 DSGVO) is carried out for the provision and mediation of our service, in particular for the execution of our contracts or pre-contractual measures with you and the execution of your orders, as well as all activities necessary with the operation and administration of a company.
The purposes of data processing are primarily based on the specific product or order and include, among other things, online appointment booking and online appointment management.
Further details on the purpose of data processing can be found in the respective contract documents and terms and conditions.
3.2 Within the framework of the balancing of interests (Article 6 para. 1f DSGVO).
To the extent necessary, we process your data beyond the actual performance of the contract to protect legitimate interests of us or third parties such as in the following cases:
Ensuring IT security and IT operations;
Testing and optimizing procedures for needs analysis and direct customer contact;
Advertising or market and opinion research, unless you have objected to the use of your data;
Assertion of legal claims and defense in legal disputes;
Measures to ensure building and facility security (e.g. access controls);
Measures to ensure the right of access to the premises;
Measures for business management and further development of services and products;
Prevention and investigation of criminal acts.
3.3 Based on your consent (Article 6 (1a) DSGVO).
Insofar as you have given us consent to process personal data for certain purposes (e.g. forwarding of data, evaluation of user data for marketing purposes), the lawfulness of this processing is based on your consent. Any consent given can be revoked at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent given to us before the DSGVO came into force, i.e. before May 25, 2018.
Please note that the revocation only takes effect for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected.
3.4 Due to legal requirements (Article 6 (1c) DSGVO) or in the public interest (Article 6 (1e) DSGVO).
In addition, as a company we are subject to various legal obligations, i.e. legal requirements (e.g. commercial laws, tax laws). The purposes of the processing include, among others, the fulfillment of tax law control and reporting obligations as well as the assessment and management of risks.
4. Who gets my data?
Within our company, those departments that need your data to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations will receive access to it. Processors used by us (Article 28 DSGVO) may also receive data for these purposes. These are companies in the categories of IT services, logistics, printing services, telecommunications, debt collection, advice and consulting, and sales and marketing.
With regard to the transfer of data to recipients outside our company, it should be noted that we will only pass on information about you if this is required by law, you have consented or we are authorized to provide information.
Under these conditions, recipients of personal data may be, for example: – Law enforcement authorities
5. How long will my data be stored?
As far as necessary, we process and store your personal data for the duration of our business relationship, which includes, for example, the initiation and execution of a contract.
In addition, we are subject to various storage and documentation obligations, which result, among other things, from the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO). The retention and documentation periods specified there are two to ten years.
Finally, the storage period is also assessed according to the statutory limitation periods, which, for example, according to §§ 195 ff. of the German Civil Code (BGB), are generally three years, but in certain cases can be up to thirty years.
6. Will data be transferred to a third country or to an international organization?
Data is only transferred to third countries (countries outside the European Economic Area – EEA) if this is necessary for the execution of your orders, is required by law or you have given us your consent. We will inform you separately about details, if required by law.
7. What data protection rights do i have?
Every data subject has the right to information under Article 15 of the GDPR, the right to rectification under Article 16 of the GDPR, the right to erasure under Article 17 of the GDPR, the right to restriction of processing under Article 18 of the GDPR and the right to data portability under Article 20 of the GDPR. With regard to the right to information and the right to erasure, the restrictions pursuant to Sections 34 and 35 BDSG apply. In addition, there is a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority (Article 77 DSGVO in conjunction with Section 19 BDSG).
8. Is there an obligation to provide data?
Within the scope of our business relationship, you only have to provide the personal data that is required for the establishment, implementation and termination of a business relationship or that we are legally obliged to collect. Without this data, we will usually have to refuse to conclude the contract or execute the order, or we will no longer be able to execute an existing contract and may have to terminate it.
9. To what extent is there automated decision-making in individual cases?
For the establishment and implementation of the business relationship, we generally do not use fully automated decision-making pursuant to Article 22 DSGVO. Should we use these procedures in individual cases, we will inform you of this separately, insofar as this is required by law.
10. To what extent is my data used for profiling (scoring)?
As a matter of principle, we do not use profiling in accordance with Article 22 DSGVO. Should we use this procedure in individual cases, we will inform you about this separately, provided this is legally required.
On our website we use Google Fonts. These are the “Google Fonts” of the company Google Inc. For the European area, the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services.
For the use of Google Fonts you do not have to log in or provide a password. Furthermore, no cookies are stored in your browser. The files (CSS, fonts) are requested via the Google domains fonts.googleapis.com and fonts.gstatic.com. According to Google, the requests for CSS and fonts are completely separate from all other Google services. If you have a Google account, you do not need to worry that your Google account information, while using Google Fonts, will be transmitted to Google. Google records the usage of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and the fonts used and stores this data securely. We’ll take a detailed look at exactly what this data storage looks like.
What are Google Fonts?
Google Fonts (formerly Google Web Fonts) is a directory of over 800 fonts that Google makes available to its users free of charge.
Many of these fonts are released under the SIL Open Font License, while others are released under the Apache license. Both are free software licenses.
Why do we use Google Fonts on our website?
Google Fonts allows us to use fonts on our own website, but we don’t have to upload them to our own server. Google Fonts is an important component in keeping the quality of our website high. All Google Fonts are automatically optimized for the web and this saves data volume and is a big advantage especially for mobile use. When you visit our site, the low file size ensures a fast loading time. Furthermore, Google Fonts are secure web fonts. Different image synthesis systems (rendering) in different browsers, operating systems and mobile devices can lead to errors. Such errors can sometimes visually distort texts or entire web pages. Thanks to the fast Content Delivery Network (CDN), there are no cross-platform problems with Google Fonts. Google Fonts supports all major browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera) and works reliably on most modern mobile operating systems, including Android 2.2+ and iOS 4.2+ (iPhone, iPad, iPod). So, we use Google Fonts so that we can present our entire online service as beautifully and consistently as possible.
What data is stored by Google?
When you visit our website, the fonts are reloaded via a Google server. Through this external call, data is transmitted to the Google servers. In this way, Google also recognizes that you or your IP address are visiting our website. The Google Fonts API is designed to reduce the use, storage, and collection of end-user data to what is necessary for proper font delivery. API, by the way, stands for “Application Programming Interface” and is used, among other things, as a data transmitter in software.
Google Fonts stores CSS and font requests securely at Google and is thus protected. Through the collected usage figures, Google can determine how well the individual fonts are received. Google publishes the results on internal analysis pages, such as Google Analytics. In addition, Google also uses data from its own web crawler to determine which websites are using Google fonts. This data is published to the Google Fonts BigQuery database. Entrepreneurs and developers use Google’s BigQuery web service to be able to examine and move large amounts of data.
However, it is still important to remember that each Google Font request also automatically transmits information such as language settings, IP address, browser version, browser screen resolution, and browser name to Google’s servers. Whether this data is also stored cannot be clearly determined or is not clearly communicated by Google.
How long and where is the data stored?
Google stores requests for CSS assets for one day on its servers, which are mainly located outside the EU. This allows us to use fonts with the help of a Google stylesheet. A stylesheet is a format template that can be used to easily and quickly change the design or font of a website, for example.
The font files are stored by Google for one year. Google thus pursues the goal of fundamentally improving the loading time of web pages. If millions of web pages refer to the same fonts, they are cached after the first visit and immediately reappear on all other web pages visited later. Sometimes Google updates font files to reduce file size, increase language coverage, and improve design.
How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?
Those data that Google stores for a day or a year cannot be easily deleted. The data is automatically transmitted to Google when the page is called up. In order to delete this data prematurely, you must contact Google support at https://support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=311280441. Data storage you prevent in this case only if you do not visit our site.
Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unlimited access to all fonts. So we can have unlimited access to a sea of fonts and get the most out of our website. You can find out more about Google Fonts and other issues at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=311280441. Google does address privacy-related issues there, but it doesn’t really include detailed information about data storage. It is relatively difficult to get really precise information from Google about stored data.
What data is basically collected by Google and what it is used for can also be found at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
On our website, we use Google Fonts from the company Google Inc. The company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for the European region. We have embedded the Google Fonts locally, i.e. on our web server – not on Google’s servers. As a result, there is no connection to Google servers and thus no data transfer or storage.
What are Google Fonts?
Google Fonts used to be called Google Web Fonts. This is an interactive directory of over 800 fonts that Google provides free of charge. With Google Fonts, you could use fonts without uploading them to your own server. However, in order to prevent any information transfer to Google servers in this regard, we have downloaded the fonts to our server. This way we act privacy compliant and do not send any data to Google Fonts.
Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unlimited access to all fonts. So we have unlimited access to a sea of fonts to get the most out of our website. You can find out more about Google Fonts and other issues at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=311280441.
Information about your right to object
according to Article 21 of the EU-DSGVO.
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1e) DSGVO (data processing in the public interest) and Article 6(1f) DSGVO (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests); this also applies to profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Article 4 no. 4 DSGVO, which we use for credit assessment or advertising purposes. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
In individual cases, we process your personal data to conduct direct marketing. You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising.If you object to processing for the purpose of direct advertising, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.
The objection can be made form-free and should preferably be addressed to:
