2. General information and mandatory information

Data protection

The ope­ra­tors of this web­site and its pages take the pro­tec­tion of your per­so­nal data very seriously. Hence, we handle your per­so­nal data as con­fi­den­tial infor­ma­tion and in com­pli­ance with the sta­tutory data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons and this Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­tion.

Whenever you use this web­site, a variety of per­so­nal infor­ma­tion will be collec­ted. Per­so­nal data com­pri­ses data that can be used to per­so­nally iden­tify you. This Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­tion exp­lains which data we collect as well as the pur­po­ses we use this data for. It also exp­lains how, and for which pur­pose the infor­ma­tion is collec­ted.

We here­with advise you that the trans­mis­sion of data via the Inter­net (i.e. through e-mail com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons) may be prone to secu­rity gaps. It is not pos­si­ble to com­ple­tely pro­tect data against third party access.

Information about the responsible party (referred to as the “controller” in the GDPR)

The data pro­ces­sing con­trol­ler on this web­site is:

Gra­fi­sche Sys­teme Vol­ker Schischke Han­dels­ge­sell­schaft mbH
Ange­lika Schischke & Hol­ger Grund­mann
Nikolaus-Otto-Straße 8
40670 Meer­busch

Phone: +49 (0) 2159 - 912830
E-mail: info@grafische-systeme.com

The con­trol­ler is the natu­ral per­son or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes decisi­ons as to the pur­po­ses of and resour­ces for the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data (e.g. names, e-mail addres­ses, etc.).

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide range of data pro­ces­sing tran­sac­tions are pos­si­ble only sub­ject to your express con­sent. You can also revoke at any time any con­sent you have already given us. To do so, all you are requi­red to do is sent us an infor­mal noti­fi­ca­tion via e-mail. This shall be wit­hout pre­ju­dice to the law­ful­ness of any data collec­tion that occur­red prior to your revo­ca­tion.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

In the event that data are pro­ces­sed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to at any time object to the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data based on grounds ari­sing from your uni­que situa­tion. This also app­lies to any pro­filing based on these pro­vi­si­ons. To deter­mine the legal basis, on which any pro­ces­sing of data is based, please con­sult this Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­tion. If you log an objec­tion, we will no lon­ger pro­cess your affec­ted per­so­nal data, unless we are in a posi­tion to pre­sent com­pel­ling pro­tec­tion worthy grounds for the pro­ces­sing of your data, that out­weigh your inte­rests, rights and free­doms or if the pur­pose of the pro­ces­sing is the clai­ming, exer­cis­ing or defence of legal ent­it­le­ments (objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR).

If your per­so­nal data is being pro­ces­sed in order to engage in direct adver­ti­sing, you have the right to at any time object to the pro­ces­sing of your affec­ted per­so­nal data for the pur­po­ses of such adver­ti­sing. This also app­lies to pro­filing to the extent that it is affi­lia­ted with such direct adver­ti­sing. If you object, your per­so­nal data will sub­se­quently no lon­ger be used for direct adver­ti­sing pur­po­ses (objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 2 GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of vio­la­ti­ons of the GDPR, data sub­jects are ent­it­led to log a com­p­laint with a super­vi­sory agency, in par­ti­cu­lar in the mem­ber state where they usually main­tain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alle­ged vio­la­tion occur­red. The right to log a com­p­laint is in effect regard­less of any other admi­nis­tra­tive or court pro­cee­dings avail­able as legal recour­ses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we auto­ma­ti­cally pro­cess on the basis of your con­sent or in order to ful­fil a con­tract be han­ded over to you or a third party in a com­monly used, machine read­a­ble for­mat. If you should demand the direct trans­fer of the data to ano­t­her con­trol­ler, this will be done only if it is tech­ni­cally fea­si­ble.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For secu­rity rea­sons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­sion of con­fi­den­tial con­tent, such as purchase orders or inqui­ries you sub­mit to us as the web­site ope­ra­tor, this web­site uses eit­her an SSL or a TLS encryp­tion pro­gramme. You can reco­gnise an encryp­ted con­nec­tion by che­cking whe­ther the address line of the brow­ser swit­ches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the brow­ser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryp­tion is activa­ted, data you trans­mit to us can­not be read by third par­ties.

Information about, blockage, rectification and eradication of data

Wit­hin the scope of the app­li­ca­ble sta­tutory pro­vi­si­ons, you have the right to at any time demand infor­ma­tion about your archi­ved per­so­nal data, their source and reci­pi­ents as well as the pur­pose of the pro­ces­sing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rec­tified, blo­cked or era­di­ca­ted. If you have ques­ti­ons about this sub­ject mat­ter or any other ques­ti­ons about per­so­nal data, please do not hesi­tate to con­tact us at any time at the address pro­vi­ded in sec­tion “Infor­ma­tion Requi­red by Law.”

Right to demand processing restrictions

You have the right to demand the impo­si­tion of restric­tions as far as the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data is con­cer­ned. To do so, you may con­tact us at any time at the address pro­vi­ded in sec­tion “Infor­ma­tion Requi­red by Law.” The right to demand restric­tion of pro­ces­sing app­lies in the fol­lo­wing cases:

  • In the event that you should dis­pute the cor­rec­t­ness of your data archi­ved by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this inves­ti­ga­tion is ongo­ing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data.
  • If the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data was/is con­duc­ted in an unlaw­ful man­ner, you have the option to demand the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your data in lieu of deman­ding the era­di­ca­tion of this data.
  • If we do not need your per­so­nal data any lon­ger and you need it to exer­cise, defend or claim legal ent­it­le­ments, you have the right to demand the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data ins­tead of its era­di­ca­tion.
  • If you have rai­sed an objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weig­hed against each other. As long as it has not been deter­mi­ned whose inte­rests pre­vail, you have the right to demand a restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data.

If you have restric­ted the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data, these data – with the excep­tion of their archi­ving – may be pro­ces­sed only sub­ject to your con­sent or to claim, exer­cise or defend legal ent­it­le­ments or to pro­tect the rights of other natu­ral per­sons or legal ent­i­ties or for important public inte­rest rea­sons cited by the European Union or a mem­ber state of the EU.

Rejection of unsolicited e-mails

We here­with object to the use of con­tact infor­ma­tion published in con­junc­tion with the man­datory infor­ma­tion to be pro­vi­ded in sec­tion “Infor­ma­tion Requi­red by Law” to send us pro­mo­tio­nal and infor­ma­tion mate­rial that we have not expressly requested. The ope­ra­tors of this web­site and its pages reserve the express right to take legal action in the event of the unso­li­ci­ted sen­ding of pro­mo­tio­nal infor­ma­tion, for instance via SPAM messa­ges.

3. Recording of data on our website

Cookies

In some instan­ces, our web­site and its pages use so-called coo­kies. Coo­kies do not cause any damage to your com­pu­ter and do not con­tain viru­ses. The pur­pose of coo­kies is to make our web­site more user fri­endly, effec­tive and more secure. Coo­kies are small text files that are pla­ced on your com­pu­ter and stored by your brow­ser.

Most of the coo­kies we use are so-called “ses­sion coo­kies.” They are auto­ma­ti­cally dele­ted after your leave our site. Other coo­kies will remain archi­ved on your device until you delete them. These coo­kies enable us to reco­gnise your brow­ser the next time you visit our web­site.

You can adjust the set­tings of your brow­ser to make sure that you are noti­fied every time coo­kies are pla­ced and to enable you to accept coo­kies only in spe­ci­fic cases or to exclude the accep­tance of coo­kies for spe­ci­fic situa­ti­ons or in gene­ral and to activate the auto­ma­tic dele­tion of coo­kies when you close your brow­ser. If you deac­tivate coo­kies, the func­tions of this web­site may be limi­ted.

Coo­kies that are requi­red for the per­for­mance of the elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons tran­sac­tion or to pro­vide cer­tain func­tions you want to use (e.g. the shop­ping cart func­tion), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­mate inte­rest in sto­ring coo­kies to ensure the tech­ni­cally error free and opti­mi­sed pro­vi­sion of the operator’s ser­vices. If other coo­kies (e.g. coo­kies for the ana­ly­sis of your brow­sing pat­terns) should be stored, they are addres­sed sepa­r­ately in this Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­tion.

Server log files

The pro­vi­der of this web­site and its pages auto­ma­ti­cally collects and stores infor­ma­tion in so-called ser­ver log files, which your brow­ser com­mu­ni­ca­tes to us auto­ma­ti­cally. The infor­ma­tion com­pri­ses:

  • The type and ver­sion of brow­ser used
  • The used ope­ra­ting sys­tem
  • Refer­rer URL
  • The host­name of the acces­sing com­pu­ter
  • The time of the ser­ver inquiry
  • The IP address

This data is not mer­ged with other data sources.

This data is recor­ded on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a legi­ti­mate inte­rest in the tech­ni­cally error free depic­tion and the opti­mi­za­tion of the operator’s web­site. In order to achieve this, ser­ver log files must be recor­ded.

Contact form

If you sub­mit inqui­ries to us via our con­tact form, the infor­ma­tion pro­vi­ded in the con­tact form as well as any con­tact infor­ma­tion pro­vi­ded the­r­ein will be stored by us in order to handle your inquiry and in the event that we have fur­ther ques­ti­ons. We will not share this infor­ma­tion wit­hout your con­sent.

Hence, the pro­ces­sing of the data ent­e­red into the con­tact form occurs exclu­si­vely based on your con­sent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). You have the right to revoke at any time any con­sent you have already given us. To do so, all you are requi­red to do is sent us an infor­mal noti­fi­ca­tion via e-mail. This shall be wit­hout pre­ju­dice to the law­ful­ness of any data collec­tion that occur­red prior to your revo­ca­tion.

The infor­ma­tion you have ent­e­red into the con­tact form shall remain with us until you ask us to era­di­cate the data, revoke your con­sent to the archi­ving of data or if the pur­pose for which the infor­ma­tion is being archi­ved no lon­ger exists (e.g. after we have con­clu­ded our response to your inquiry). This shall be wit­hout pre­ju­dice to any man­datory legal pro­vi­si­ons – in par­ti­cu­lar reten­tion peri­ods.

Request by e-mail, telephone or fax

If you con­tact us by e-mail, tele­phone or fax, your request, inclu­ding all resul­ting per­so­nal data (name, request) will be stored and pro­ces­sed by us for the pur­pose of pro­ces­sing your request. We do not pass these data on wit­hout your con­sent.

The pro­ces­sing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is rela­ted to the exe­cu­tion of a con­tract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual mea­su­res. In all other cases, the pro­ces­sing is based on your con­sent (Arti­cle 6 (1) a GDPR) and/or on our legi­ti­mate inte­rests (Arti­cle 6 (1) (f) GDPR), since we have a legi­ti­mate inte­rest in the effec­tive pro­ces­sing of requests addres­sed to us.

The data sent by you to us via con­tact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your con­sent to the sto­rage or the pur­pose for the data sto­rage lap­ses (e.g. after com­ple­tion of your request). Man­datory sta­tutory pro­vi­si­ons - in par­ti­cu­lar sta­tutory reten­tion peri­ods - remain unaf­fec­ted.

Processing of data (customer and contract data)

We collect, pro­cess and use per­so­nal data only to the extent necessary for the estab­lish­ment, con­tent orga­ni­za­tion or change of the legal rela­ti­ons­hip (data inventory). These actions are taken on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR, which per­mits the pro­ces­sing of data for the ful­filment of a con­tract or pre-contractual actions. We collect, pro­cess and use per­so­nal data con­cer­ning the use of our web­site (usage data) only to the extent that this is necessary to make it pos­si­ble for users to uti­lize the ser­vices and to bill for them.

The collec­ted custo­mer data shall be era­di­ca­ted upon com­ple­tion of the order or the ter­mi­na­tion of the busi­ness rela­ti­ons­hip. This shall be wit­hout pre­ju­dice to any sta­tutory reten­tion man­da­tes.

4. Plug-ins and Tools

YouTube with expanded data protection integration

Our web­site uses plug-ins of the You­Tube plat­form, which is being ope­ra­ted by You­Tube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

We use You­Tube in the expan­ded data pro­tec­tion mode. Accord­ing to You­Tube, this mode ensu­res that You­Tube does not store any infor­ma­tion about visi­tors to this web­site before they watch the video. Nevertheless, this does not necessa­rily mean that the sharing of data with You­Tube part­ners can be ruled out as a result of the expan­ded data pro­tec­tion mode. For instance, regard­less of whe­ther you are watching a video, You­Tube will always estab­lish a con­nec­tion with the Google Dou­ble­Click net­work.

As soon as you start to play a You­Tube video on our web­site, a con­nec­tion to YouTube’s ser­vers will be estab­lished. As a result, the You­Tube ser­ver will be noti­fied, which of our pages you have visi­ted. If you are log­ged into your You­Tube account while you visit our site, you enable You­Tube to direc­tly allo­cate your brow­sing pat­terns to your per­so­nal pro­file. You have the option to pre­vent this by log­ging out of your You­Tube account.

Fur­ther­more, after you have star­ted to play a video, You­Tube will be able to place various coo­kies on your device. With the assi­s­tance of these coo­kies, You­Tube will be able to obtain infor­ma­tion about our web­site visi­tor. Among other things, this infor­ma­tion will be used to gene­rate video sta­tis­tics with the aim of impro­ving the user fri­end­li­ness of the site and to pre­vent attempts to com­mit fraud. These coo­kies will stay on your device until you delete them.

Under cer­tain cir­cum­s­tan­ces, addi­tio­nal data pro­ces­sing tran­sac­tions may be trig­ge­red after you have star­ted to play a You­Tube video, which are bey­ond our con­trol.

The use of You­Tube is based on our inte­rest in pre­sen­ting our online con­tent in an appe­aling man­ner. Pur­suant to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, this is a legi­ti­mate inte­rest.

For more infor­ma­tion on how You­Tube hand­les user data, please con­sult the You­Tube Data Pri­vacy Policy under: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

Google Web Fonts (local embedding)

This web­site uses so-called Web Fonts pro­vi­ded by Google to ensure the uni­form use of fonts on this site. These Google fonts are locally instal­led so that a con­nec­tion to Google’s ser­vers will not be estab­lished in con­junc­tion with this app­li­ca­tion.
