Privacy Policy.

We are very pleased about your interest in our company!

Data protection has a particularly high priority for us. Therefore, this data protection declaration explains in detail the type, scope and purpose of personal data within our online offer.

But first the most important thing:

It is generally possible to use the Geldbach Gruppe GmbH website without providing any personal data.

However, if you wish to contact us, it may become necessary to process personal data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. If further processing of personal data would be necessary and there is no direct legal basis for this, we generally first obtain the consent of the person concerned.

And now in detail:

The data protection declaration applies regardless of the domains, systems, platforms and devices (e.g. desktop or mobile) on which the online offer is executed.

The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Geldbach Gruppe GmbH. By means of this privacy policy, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this data protection declaration informs affected persons about the rights to which they are entitled.

As the person responsible for processing, Geldbach Gruppe GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. This includes, for example, the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and our server. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

  1. definitions of terms

The data protection declaration of Geldbach Gruppe GmbH is based on the terminology used by the European legislator for directives and regulations when the basic data protection regulation (DSGVO) was issued. Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:

  1. a) personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as ‘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 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 means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

(c) processing

Processing is any operation or set of operations, performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, organisation, filing, 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 limiting their future processing.

(e) profiling

Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or change of location. As a responsible company, we do not use an automatic decision making process.

  1. f) Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

(g) Controller or data controller

Controller or data controller shall mean the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any 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 law or by the law of the Member States, provision may be made for the controller or for the specific criteria for his or her designation in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States.

(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

The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation, in accordance with Union or national law, shall not be considered as recipients.

  1. j) Third party

Third party means any 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 the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.

(k) Consent

Consent shall mean any freely given specific and informed expression of the data subject’s will in an informed and unequivocal manner, in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

  1. the name and address of the controller

  1. cookies

Like many other websites, the websites of Geldbach Gruppe GmbH also use cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored on a computer system via an internet browser.

Many cookies contain a so-called Cookie-ID. A Cookie-ID is a unique identification of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the Internet pages and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified by means of the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, Geldbach Gruppe GmbH can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services, which would not be possible without the setting of cookies.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the interest of the user. Cookies enable us, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent or that performance may be restricted.

  1. collection of general data and information

The website of Geldbach Gruppe GmbH collects a number of general data and information every time the website is accessed by a person concerned or by an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The following can be recorded: (1) the 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 that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet Protocol (IP) address, (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information that serves to prevent danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, Geldbach Gruppe GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required in order to (1) deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) optimize the contents of our website, (3) ensure the permanent operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement agencies with the information necessary for prosecution in the case of a cyber attack. These anonymously collected data and information are therefore statistically evaluated by Geldbach Gruppe GmbH on the one hand, and on the other hand with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.

  1. contact possibility via the internet page

Due to legal regulations, the website of Geldbach Gruppe GmbH contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the data controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted voluntarily by a data subject to the controller are stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. Such personal data shall not be disclosed to third parties.

  1. routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store personal data relating to the data subject only for the time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or by any other law or regulation to which the controller is subject.

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

  1. rights of the data subject

(a) Right to confirmation

Every data subject has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data relating to him are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

(b) Right of access

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain at any time and free of charge from the controller information on the personal data stored in relation to him or her and a copy thereof. Furthermore, the European Directive and Regulation Giver has granted the data subject access to the following information:

– the processing purposes

– the categories of personal data processed

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

– the existence of a right of rectification or erasure of personal data relating to them or of a right of objection to their processing by the controller

– the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority

– if the personal data are not collected from the data subject: All available information on the origin of the data

– The data subject shall also have the right to obtain information as to whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate safeguards in relation to the transfer.

– If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may at any time contact a member of the staff of the controller.

(c) Right of rectification

Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to request the rectification without delay of inaccurate personal data concerning him. Furthermore, the data subject shall have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration, having regard to the purposes of the processing.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

  1. d) Right of erasure (right to be forgotten)

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data relating to him/her, where one of the following reasons applies and provided that the processing is not necessary:

– the personal data have been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer necessary

– The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a DPA or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a DPA, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

– The data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 FADP, and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or the data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 FADP.

– The personal data were processed unlawfully.

– The deletion of the personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.

– The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Art. 8 Paragraph 1 DSGVO.

– If one of the above mentioned reasons applies and a data subject wishes to request the deletion of personal data stored by Geldbach Gruppe GmbH, he/she may contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The Geldbach Gruppe GmbH employee will ensure that the request for deletion is complied with immediately.

– If the personal data has been made public by Geldbach Gruppe GmbH, and if our company, as the person responsible, is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 para. 1 DSGVO, Geldbach Gruppe GmbH will take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, in order to inform other persons responsible for data processing who process the published personal data, that the person concerned has requested from these other persons responsible for data processing the deletion of all links to these personal data or of copies or replications of these personal data.

(e) Right to limit processing

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to request 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 of time sufficient to enable the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data

– The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to have the personal data deleted and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data.

– The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

– The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.

– If one of the above-mentioned conditions is given and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored at Geldbach Gruppe GmbH, he/she may contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of Geldbach Gruppe GmbH will arrange for the restriction of the processing.

  1. f) Right to data transferability

Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to receive the personal data concerning him/her which have been provided by the data subject to a controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. He/she also has the right to have this data communicated to another controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data has been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter a DPA or Art. 9 paragraph 2 letter a DPA or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter b DPA and that the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures, 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.

In addition, when exercising their right to data transfer pursuant to Art. 20, para. 1 FADP, the data subjects have the right to request that personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

In order to assert the right to data transferability, the person concerned can contact an employee of Geldbach Gruppe GmbH at any time.

  1. g) Right of objection

Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator for directives and regulations, to object at any time, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her that is carried out on the basis of Art. 6, para. 1, letters e or f FADP. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

In the event of an objection, Geldbach Gruppe GmbH no longer processes the personal data, unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh the interests, rights, and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims.

Should Geldbach Gruppe GmbH ever use personal data in order to carry out direct advertising, the person concerned has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling, as far as it is related to such direct advertising. If the data subject objects vis-à-vis Geldbach Gruppe GmbH to the processing for purposes of direct advertising, Geldbach Gruppe GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the data subject has the right to object, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her that is carried out at Geldbach Gruppe GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 Paragraph 1 DSGVO, unless such processing is necessary to fulfil a task in the public interest.

In order to exercise the right of objection, the person concerned can directly contact any employee of Geldbach Gruppe GmbH. Furthermore, the data subject is free to exercise his/her right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.

  1. i) Right to revoke a data protection consent

Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver, to revoke his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

If the data subject wishes to exercise his or her right to withdraw consent, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

  1. data protection for applications and the application procedure

The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out by electronic means. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits the relevant application documents to the controller electronically, for example by e-mail. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transferred is stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in accordance with the legal requirements. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents are automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, unless deletion is contrary to any other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, a duty of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

  1. data protection regulations for the use and application of MATOMO

The data controller has integrated the MATOMO component on this website. MATOMO is an open source software tool for web analysis. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to Internet pages. Among other things, a web analysis tool collects data about the website from which a person concerned came to a website (a so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website.

The software is operated on the server of the person responsible for processing; the log files, which are sensitive to data protection laws, are stored exclusively on this server.

The purpose of the MATOMO component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. The person responsible for processing uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of this website in order to compile internal reports that show the activities on our website.

MATOMO sets a cookie on the system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, we are able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, the MATOMO component automatically causes the internet browser on the system of the person concerned to transmit data to our server for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, we obtain knowledge of personal data such as the IP address of the person concerned (partially anonymised), which serves us, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks.

By means of the cookie, personal information such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website is stored. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address (partially anonymised) of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transferred to our server. These personal data are stored by us. We do not pass on this personal data to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent MATOMO from placing a cookie on the system of the person concerned.

In addition, a cookie already set by MATOMO can be deleted at any time using an internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the person concerned has the possibility to object to the collection of data generated by MATOMO and related to the use of this website and to prevent such collection. To do this, the person concerned must set an opt-out cookie. If the data subject’s information technology system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the data subject must set an opt-out cookie again.

However, with the setting of the opt-out cookie, there is a possibility that the data subject may no longer be able to fully use the Internet pages of the data controller.

Further information and MATOMO’s current data protection regulations can be found at https://matomo.org/privacy-policy/.

  1. legal basis of the processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DSGVO serves our company as a 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 a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DSGVO.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company was injured and his name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DSGVO.

Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular 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 DSGVO).

  1. legitimate interests in processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DSGVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

  1. the duration for which personal data are stored

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

  1. legal or contractual provisions making the personal data available; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the data

We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (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 us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be concluded. Before the person concerned makes personal data available, he or she must contact one of our employees. Our employee 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.

  1. existence of automated decision making

As a responsible company, we avoid automatic decision making or profiling.
