Personal- und Unternehmensberatung
We consider it our paramount task to safeguard the confidentiality of the personal data you provide and to protect it against unauthorised access. We therefore take the utmost care and apply state-of-the-art security standards to ensure maximum protection of your personal data. As a private-law company, we are subject to the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR) and the stipulations of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We have adopted technical and organisational measures which ensure that both we and our external agents comply with the data protection requirements.
The legislator requires that personal data be processed in a lawfully, fairly and transparent manner in relation to the data subject (‘lawfulness, fairness and transparency’). To this end, we inform you in the following of the individual legal definitions used in this privacy statement:
1. Personal data
"Personal data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ('data subject'); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
"Processing" means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
3. Restriction of processing
"Restriction of processing" means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
"Profiling" means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
"Pseudonymisation" means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
6. File system
"File system" means any structured set of personal data which are accessible according to specific criteria, whether centralised, decentralised or dispersed on a functional or geographical basis.
"Controller" means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
"Processor" means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
"Recipient" means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
10. Third party
"Third party" means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
"Consent" of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
Processing of personal data shall be lawful only if a legal basis for such processing exists. A legal basis for the processing can, pursuant to points (a) to (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, in particular be:
(1) In the following, we provide information on the collection of personal data when using our website. Personal data are, for example, name, address, email address, user behaviour.
(2) When you contact us by email or using a contact form, we store the data you provide (your email address, where applicable your name and your telephone number) in order to respond to your request. The data obtained in this connection are deleted once their storage is no longer necessary, or processing is restricted insofar as statutory retention obligations exist.
When using our website solely for informational purposes, in other words if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we collect only those personal data transmitted to our server by your browser. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data which are necessary for technical reasons in order to display our website to you and to guarantee stability and security (legal basis provided for by point (f) of the first subparagraph of Art. 6(1) S. 1 point f GDPR):
In addition to collection of the data cited above, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk, specifically assigned to the browser you use, through which the party setting the cookie receives certain information. Cookies can neither run applications nor transmit viruses to your computer. Their purpose is to make using the Internet easier and more effective.
(2) This website uses the following types of cookies to the extent and in the manner outlined below:
(1) Beyond the purely informational use of our website we also offer various services which you might be interested in using. In this case, you generally have to provide other personal data which we use in order to perform the corresponding service and for which the data processing principles as specified above apply.
(2) In order to process your data, we sometimes use external agents. These agents have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored.
(3) We may also pass your personal data on to third parties when offering participation in actions, competitions, contract conclusions or similar services together with partners. Further information on this is available when you provide your personal data, or below in the description of the service offered.
(4) Where the registered office of our service provider or partner is located in a state outside the European Economic Area (EEA) we inform you of the consequences of this circumstance in the description of the service offered
(1) With your consent you may sign up to our newsletter in which we inform you about our current attractive offers. The products and services advertised are specified in the declaration of consent.
(2) We use the so-called double opt-in procedure when you sign up to our newsletter. This means that following your registration we send an email to the email address you have specified, requesting you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. We also store the IP addresses you use, as well as the times of registration and confirmation. The purpose of this procedure is to enable verification of your registration and, where necessary, to clarify any misuse of your personal data.
(3) The only required information to be provided in signing up to our newsletter is your email address. The provision of other, separately marked data, which is used to contact you personally, is voluntary.

The legal basis for this is provided for by point (f) of the first subparagraph of Art. 6(1) S. 1 point a GDPR.
(4) You can withdraw your consent to receiving our newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can declare this withdrawal by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter email, by email to email@example.com or by sending a message to the contact details specified in the legal notice.

For the purposes of this evaluation the emails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are single-pixel image files stored on our website. For the evaluations we link the data specified under §3 and the web beacons with your email address and an individual ID. The data are collected exclusively in pseudonymised form, in other words the IDs are not linked with your other personal data, making it impossible to trace them to a specific user. You may withdraw your consent to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each email or by informing us via another means of contact. The information shall remain stored for the duration of your subscription to our newsletter. If you unsubscribe from the newsletter, we store the data in purely statistical and anonymous form.

The right to erasure ("right to be forgotten") shall not apply to the extent that processing is necessary:
You have the right to obtain from the controller restriction of processing of your personal data where one of the following applies:
Where processing has been restricted in accordance with the conditions cited above, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with the data subject's consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

That right shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of your personal data which is based on points (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.

Where personal data are processed for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1), you, on grounds relating to your particular situation, have the right to object to processing of your personal data, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
You may exercise your right to object at any time by contacting the controller concerned.
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. This shall not apply if the decision:
The data controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
The data subject may exercise this right at any time by contacting the controller concerned.
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of your personal data infringes this Regulation.
Without prejudice to any available administrative or non-judicial remedy, including the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority pursuant to Article 77 GDPR, you have the right to an effective judicial remedy where you consider that your rights under this Regulation have been infringed as a result of the processing of your personal data in non-compliance with this Regulation.
