DATA PRIVACY STATEMENT
Last changed on May 24, 2018
Thank you for visiting our website. We care about your data privacy, so we’d like to inform you in detail about how we process your information when you use our website.
1. LEGAL BASIS OF DATA PROCESSING
Art. 6 par. 1 (a) GDPR is the legal basis on which our company processes information for certain purposes with your consent. If personal data must be processed to fulfill a contract to which you are party, e.g. in order to supply goods or services or to make payment, this is based on art. 6 par. 1 (b) GDPR. The same applies to processing that is required for activities preceding a contract, e.g. responding to questions or requests regarding our products and services. If our company has legal obligations, e.g. relating to fiscal duties, that make it necessary to process personal data, such processing is based on art. 6 par. 1 (c) GDPR. In rare cases, personal data may have to be processed to protect your or another natural person’s vital interests; this is governed by art. 6 par. 1 (d) GDPR. And finally, data processing may also be based on art. 6 par. 1 (f) GDPR. This is the legal basis for processing that is not subject to any of the aforementioned provisions, provided that such processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests pursued by our company or a third party and provided that these interests are not overridden by your interests or your fundamental rights and freedoms.
2. RIGHT OF ACCESS, RIGHT TO RECTIFICATION, RESTRICTION OF PROCESSING AND ERASURE, AND RIGHT TO OBJECT
At your written request, we will inform you about the personal data concerning you that we are storing. You have the right to have this data rectified, to limit its processing, to object to its processing and to have it erased. Please address your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA
consolut currently maintains affiliate companies in Germany, Greece, Switzerland and the United States. The processes within the consolut group require close cooperation between its members. In this context, data concerning you may be passed on and transferred worldwide to the countries in which we maintain business operations, in connection with specified purposes and in compliance with this Data Privacy Statement.
This Data Privacy Statement is observed by all consolut affiliates.
Your personal data will not be transmitted to third parties for any other purpose than the ones outlined below. We will only disclose your personal data to third parties if:
- You have given your express consent to such disclosure pursuant to art. 6 par. 1 (a) GDPR;
- Such disclosure is required according to art. 6 par. 1 (f) GDPR in order to establish, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest that would prohibit the transmission of your data;
- Such disclosure is required by law according to art. 6 par. 1 (c) GDPR; and
- Such disclosure is permitted by law and required to fulfill our contractual duties towards you as per art. 6 par. 1 (b) GDPR.
4. RIGHTS OF THE DATA SUBJECT
You have the right:
- To demand to be informed about the personal data concerning you that is processed by us (art. 15 GDPR). In particular, you may demand information about the purposes of data processing, the categories of personal data concerned, the categories of recipients to whom your information was or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing and a right to object, the existence of a right to lodge a complaint, the source of your information (if it was not collected by us), and the existence of automatic decision-making processes including profiling and, where applicable, demand substantive information about the details of such data processing;
- To demand the immediate rectification of incorrect personal information or the completion of personal information held by us (art. 16 GDPR);
- To demand the erasure of personal information held by us, unless the processing of said information is required to exercise the right of free expression and information, to fulfill a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims (art. 17 GDPR);
- To demand that processing of your personal information be restricted if you contest the accuracy of the information, if processing is unlawful, but you oppose the erasure of the data, if we no longer require the information, but you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims (art. 18 GDPR), or because you have objected to the processing of your data as per art. 21 GDPR;
- To receive the personal information you supplied to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or to demand transmission of your data to another person (art. 20 GDPR);
- To withdraw your consent to the processing and use of your information at any time (art. 7 par. 3 GDPR). In this case, we may not continue our processing of data that was based on this consent.
- Pursuant to art. 77 GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, without prejudice to further administrative or legal action in or outside of court. Generally, you can address such complaints to the authority at you place of residence, your place of work or the place at which the alleged infringement took place, if you believe that the processing of your personal data infringes the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
5. RIGHT TO WITHDRAW CONSENT
If your personal information is processed based on legitimate interests, art. 21 DGPR gives you the right to object to such processing if your objection is related to your particular situation or if you object to the processing of your data for direct marketing purposes. In the latter case, you have a general right to object that will be implemented by us even if you do not provide any particulars about your situation. If you would like to exercise your right to object or withdraw consent, simple send an e-mail to email@example.com

If you post a comment, you must state a name, which may be a pseudonym. You must also state an e-mail address.

This website uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption technology for the transfer of data from your browser to our server and to servers hosting files that we embed in our website. SSL ensures that files are encrypted for transfer. The data cannot be changed and the sender can be identified. You can recognize the use of SSL encryption by the prefix “https” before the URL of the website that you are accessing with your browser.
12. REFERENCES TO WEBSITES OF THIRD PARTIES

This is necessary for technical reasons. The following data is transmitted (the list is not exhaustive): your IP address, the time at which you clicked on the link, the page on which you clicked on the link, and information on your Internet browser. If you do not want this data to be transmitted to the link destination, do not click on the link.
