Transfer of personal data to a third country

We retain control over and take responsibility for the use of the personal data that you send to us. It is possible that some or all of this data is stored or processed in other countries (for example in the United States) that have different data protection laws from your country of residence. In such case, we will ensure that the company commissioned to process the data has taken appropriate steps to protect your personal data in accordance with the requirements applicable in your country of residence. Usually, we will at least make use of standard contractual clauses (SSC) which are one of several mechanisms approved by the European Commission to ensure adequate safeguards for personal data transferred from the EU to countries that the European Commission has not found to offer adequate protection for personal data. Standard contractual clauses contain obligations for both data controllers wishing to transfer personal data to counties outside the EU/EEA and data controllers or data processors who receive such data. The clauses also regulate other matters concerning the transfer, for example the data subjects' rights and how disputes arising from the contract are to be settled. Standard contractual clauses can also be insufficient for data transfers to certain countries. In these cases, we agree on additional technical and organizational measures and guarantees.

Storing your data

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Furthermore, storage may occur if required by European or national laws to which we are subject to. Data will also be blocked or deleted if the storage period specified in one of the above-referenced standards expires unless there is a legal or regulatory need for further storage of data for concluding a contract or for contract performance.

Protecting your data

We take technical and organizational measures in accordance with the requirements of Art. 32 GDPR to protect the user's personal data. Personal data of the user are encrypted when transmitted to the website using HTTPS.

Further rights are the right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR), the right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR), and the right to object (Art. 21 GDPR).

If we process your personal data in order to operate direct mail, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising.
