DATA PROTECTION

I am very delighted that you have shown interest in my work. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for me. It is generally possible to use my website without providing any personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special services via my website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, I generally obtain consent from the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to me. By means of this data protection declaration, I would like to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.

 

As the controller, I have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to me by alternative means, for example by telephone.

 

1. Definitions of terms

This data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). My data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, I would like to explain the terms used in advance.

 

I use the following terms, among others, in this privacy policy

 

a) Personal data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "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.

 

b) Data subject

Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.

 

c) Processing

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.

 

d) Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting its future processing.

 

e) Profiling

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.

 

f) Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is 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.

g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing

Controller or controller responsible for the processing is 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.

 

h) Processor

Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

 

i) Recipient

Recipient is 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 enquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients.

 

j) Third party

A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process the personal data.

 

k) Consent

Consent is 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.

 

2. Name and address of the controller

The controller within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is

Petra Zarre

Mansteinstraße, 16

20253 Hamburg

Hamburg, Germany

Phone: 0179-544 60 08

E-mail: petra@zarre.de

Website: zarre.de

3. Collection of general data and information

This website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server log files. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website can be recorded, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

 

When using this general data and information, I do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the content of the website, (2) optimise the content of the website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of the information technology systems and the technology of the website and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore analysed by me both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by me. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

 

4. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.

 

If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

5. Rights of the data subject

a)    Right to confirmation

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact me.

 

b)    Right to information

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller free information about his or her personal data stored at any time and a copy of this information. Furthermore, the European legislator has granted the data subject access to the following information

 

• the purposes of the processing

• the categories of personal data being processed

• the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organizations

• where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period

• the existence of a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

• if the personal data is not collected from the data subject: All available information about the origin of the data

• the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22(1) and (4) GDPR and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject

 

Furthermore, the data subject has a right to information as to whether personal data has been transferred to a third country or to an international organization. If this is the case, the data subject also has the right to obtain information about the appropriate safeguards in connection with the transfer.

 

If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of access, he or she may, at any time, contact me.

c)    Right to rectification

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to demand the immediate correction of incorrect personal data concerning them. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall also have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

 

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact me.

d)    Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies and insofar as the processing is not necessary:

 

• The personal data have been collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which they are no longer necessary.

• The data subject withdraws consent on which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing.

• The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR.

• The personal data has been processed unlawfully.

• The personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.

• The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1) GDPR.

If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by me, he or she may, at any time, contact me. I shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.

 

If I have made the personal data public and am obliged to erase the personal data pursuant to Article 17(1) GDPR, I shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required. I will take the necessary steps in individual cases.

e)    Right to restriction of processing

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to require the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions is met:

 

• The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.

• The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead.

• The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

• The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

 

If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of the processing of personal data stored by me, he or she may contact me at any time. I will arrange for the restriction of processing.

f)    Right to data portability

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to receive the personal data concerning them, which have been provided by the data subject to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR and 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 the controller.

 

Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

 

In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact me.

g)    Right to object

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

 

I shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless I can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

 

If I process personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to me to the processing for direct marketing purposes, I will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her by me for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

 

In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact me. The data subject is also free, in the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

 

h)    Automated decisions in individual cases, including profiling

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her, or similarly significantly affects him or her, if the decision (1) is not necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorized by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is based on the data subject's explicit consent.

If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject's explicit consent, I 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 contest the decision.

 

If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may, at any time, contact me.

i)    Right to withdraw consent under data protection law

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her personal data at any time.

 

If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may, at any time, contact me.

6. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Facebook

I have integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.

 

A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet, an online community that generally enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enable the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Among other things, Facebook allows users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests.

 

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada, the controller for the processing of personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by me and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook through the Facebook component. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be accessed at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject accesses our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or if the data subject makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.

Facebook always receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Facebook account before accessing our website.

 

The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains what settings options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress the transmission of data to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.

7. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Instagram

The data protection provisions published by YouTube, which can be accessed at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

12. Legal basis of the processing

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about my products or services. If I am subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to my company were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly authorised because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

13. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or by a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR my legitimate interest is to carry out my business in favour of the well-being of all my employees and the shareholders.

 

14. Duration for which the personal data will be stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After this period has expired, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

15. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

I would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by me. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide me with personal data when my company signs a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact me. I will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.

16. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible freelancer, I do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
