Privacy Policy for the Website of the LIG GmbH

We thank you for visiting our homepagewww.l-i-g.netWe thank you for visiting our homepage www.l-i-g. net and are very pleased about your interest in our company. The management of LIG GmbH attaches great importance to data protection, and it is possible to use our website without providing personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of special services offered by our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no other legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the German Data Protection Act (DSGVO) and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to LIG GmbH (e. g. B. Federal Data Protection Act, Telemedia Act) By means of this data protection notice we would like to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, this privacy notice informs data subjects of their rights.

As the data controller, LIG GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. 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.

All terms used in these notes are not gender specific.

1. Definitions

The data protection information of LIG GmbH is based on the terminology used by the European Directive and Regulation Giver when the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) was issued. Our data protection information should be easy to read and understand both for the public and 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 notice:

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 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 with or without the aid of automated means, concerning personal data, such as collection, recording, organization, organization, 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 restricting 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 the job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, whereabouts or change of location of that natural person.

f) Pseudonymization

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

g) Controller or data controller

Controller or data controller is 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 specified 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 designation under Union law or by the law of the Member States.

(h) Processor

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

i) Recipient

The recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to whom personal data is disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation mandate under Union or national law shall not be considered 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 the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.

k) Consent

Consent is any freely given, informed and unequivocal expression of the data subject's will in a specific case, 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.

Data protection officer Stephan Viehoff
Haberstraße 42
D-42551 Velbert

Phone: +49 (2052) 50296-0
E-Mail: info@l-i-g.net

Every person concerned can contact our data protection officer directly at any time with all questions and suggestions regarding data protection.

3. collection of general data and information when visiting our website

On the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, our website collects a series of general data and information with every call by a data subject or automated system. These general data and information are temporarily stored in the log files of the server. The following can be recorded

  1. the operating system used by the accessing system and its interface,
  2. the browser types used, including language and version of the browser software,
  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,
  5. the date and time of an access to the Internet site (including time zone difference to Universal Time Coordinated (UTC),
  6. the amount of data transferred,
  7. an Internet Protocol (IP) address,
  8. the Internet service provider of the accessing system
  9. other similar data and information which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.


When using these general data and information, LIG GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. This information is rather required to

  1. to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
  2. to optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for it,
  3. to ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website,
  4. To provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber-attack.


These anonymously collected data and information are therefore evaluated statistically on the one hand and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately ensure an optimum 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.

 

4. provision of the online offer and web hosting

In order to provide our online services securely and efficiently, we use the services of one or more web hosting providers, from whose servers (or servers managed by them) the online services can be accessed. For these purposes, we may use infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services as well as security and technical maintenance services.

The data processed within the framework of the provision of the hosting offer may include all data relating to the users of our online offer, which are generated within the framework of use and communication. This regularly includes the IP address, which is necessary to be able to deliver the contents of online offers to browsers, and all entries made within our online offer or from websites.

E-mail dispatch and hosting: The web hosting services we use also include the dispatch, receipt and storage of e-mails. For these purposes, the addresses of the recipients and senders as well as other information concerning the e-mail dispatch (e.g. the providers involved) and the contents of the respective e-mails are processed. The aforementioned data may also be processed for SPAM detection purposes. Please note that e-mails on the Internet are generally not sent encrypted. As a rule, e-mails are encrypted in transit, but (unless an end-to-end encryption method is used) not on the servers from which they are sent and received. We can therefore not assume any responsibility for the transmission path of the e-mails between the sender and the reception on our server.

  • Processed data types:Content data (e.g. text entries, photographs, videos), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses), inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers).
  • Purposes of processing:Users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services).
  • Purposes of processing:Contractual services and performances, range measurement (e.g. access statistics, recognition of returning visitors), tracking (e.g. interest/behavioural profiling, use of cookies), visitor action evaluation, server monitoring and error recognition, contact requests and communication, remarketing, profiling (creation of user profiles), conversion measurement (measurement of the effectiveness of marketing measures).
  • Legal basis:Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f. DSGVO), consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO).


Service used and service provider:

5. security measures

We take appropriate technical and organizational measures in accordance with the legal requirements, taking into account the state of the art, implementation costs, type, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing as well as the different probabilities of occurrence and the extent of the threat to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, in order to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.

Such measures shall include, in particular, safeguarding the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical and electronic access to the data as well as the access, input, disclosure, security of availability and separation of data relating to them. Furthermore, we have established procedures to ensure that data subjects' rights are exercised, data is deleted, and responses are made to any threats to the data. Furthermore, we take the protection of personal data into account as early as the development or selection of hardware, software and procedures in accordance with the principle of data protection by designing technology and data protection-friendly presettings.

If it is possible for us or if it is not necessary to save your IP address, we shorten or have your IP address shortened. In the case of shortening the IP address, also known as "IP masking", the last octet, i.e. the last two numbers of an IP address, are deleted (in this context, the IP address is an identifier individually assigned to an Internet connection by the online access provider). The purpose of shortening the IP address is to prevent or significantly impede the identification of a person based on his or her IP address.

In order to protect your data transmitted by visiting our website, we use TLS or SSL encryption. You can recognize such encrypted connections by the prefix "https://" or the lock in the address line of your browser.

transmission and disclosure of personal data

In the course of our processing of personal data, it may happen that the data is transferred to or disclosed to other bodies, companies, legally independent organizational units or persons. The recipients of this data may include, for example, payment institutions in the context of payment transactions, service providers commissioned with IT tasks or providers of services and content that are integrated into a website. In such a case, we observe the legal requirements and, in particular, conclude appropriate contracts or agreements with the recipients of your data, which serve to protect your data.

Data processing in third countries

If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if processing takes place in the context of the use of services of third parties or the disclosure or transfer of data to other persons, bodies or companies, this will only take place in accordance with the legal requirements.

Subject to express consent or contractually or legally required transfer, we process or have the data processed only in third countries with a recognized level of data protection or on the basis of special guarantees, such as contractual obligations through so-called standard protection clauses of the EU Commission, the existence of certifications or binding internal data protection regulations (Art. 44 to 49 DSGVO). Further information on this can be found on an information page of the EU Commission athttps://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection_de..

Note on data transfer to the USA

Among other things, we have included tools from companies based in the USA on our website. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the US servers of these companies.

For a long time, the basis for data transfer was an adequacy decision of the EU Commission based on the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement, to which many American companies have committed themselves. However, the ECJ declared this agreement invalid in its ruling of 16.07.2020 (C-311/18).

We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to surrender personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against this. Therefore, it cannot be excluded that US authorities (e.g. secret services) may process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

If we use the tools with your express consent, you have the possibility at any time to revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data with effect for the future via our consent tool. You will find further information in the respective chapters.

Contacting

You have the possibility to contact us by mail, telephone, fax, e-mail or via the Internet (e.g. contact forms, social media).

If you contact us by post, we can process in particular your address data (e.g. last name, first name, street, city, postal code), date and time of receipt of the mail as well as those data which result from your letter itself.

If you contact us, a secretarial service may also process your data and transfer it to us following your contact. Depending on which data you provide here, we will then contact you again either by telephone, fax or e-mail and, if necessary, call you back or write to you.

If you contact us by telephone, we will process your telephone number and, if necessary, your name, your e-mail address, the time of the call and details of your request.

If you contact us by fax, the fax number or the sender identification as well as the data resulting from the fax will be processed.

If you contact us by e-mail, your e-mail address, the time of the e-mail and the data resulting from the message text (and attachments if applicable) will be processed.

The purpose of processing the above-mentioned data is to process your contact request and to be able to contact you in order to answer the request. The legal basis for the processing of personal data described here is the fulfilment of the contract and pre-contractual inquiries in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b as well as our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest is to offer you the possibility to contact us at any time and to answer your inquiries.

The personal data will only be processed as long as it is necessary for the processing of the contact request.

Registration on our website

You have the possibility to register on our website by providing personal data. Which personal data is transmitted to us in the process is determined by the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data you enter will be collected and stored exclusively for our internal use and for our own purposes. We may arrange for the data to be passed on to one or more processors, for example a parcel service provider, who will also use the personal data exclusively for an internal use attributable to us.

When you register on our website, the IP address assigned by your internet service provider (ISP), the date and time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data is carried out against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable the clarification of criminal offences committed. To this extent, the storage of this data is necessary for our security. As a matter of principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties, unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.

Your registration with voluntary disclosure of personal data enables us to offer you content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have it completely deleted from the database.

On request, we will inform any person concerned at any time about the personal data stored about you. Furthermore, we will correct or delete personal data upon request or your notification, provided that this does not conflict with any legal obligations to retain data. All our employees are available to you as contact persons in this context.

Promotional communication by mail, fax or telephone

We process personal data for the purpose of advertising communication, which can take place via various channels such as e-mail, telephone, post or fax. In this context, we observe the legal requirements and obtain the necessary consent, unless communication is legally permitted.

Recipients have the right to revoke any consent given or to object to the promotional communication at any time.

After revocation or objection, we may store the data required to prove consent for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests before we delete it. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defense against claims. An individual request for deletion is possible at any time, provided that the former existence of a consent is confirmed at the same time.

  • Processed data types:Processed data types: inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers).
  • Purposes of processing:Communication partner.
  • Purposes of processing:Direktmarketing (z.B. per E-Mail oder postalisch).
  • Legal basis:Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f. DSGVO), consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO).

12. Use of e-mail newsletters and mass communication

We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications (hereinafter referred to as "newsletters") only with the consent of the recipients or a legal permission. If, in the course of registering for the newsletter, its contents are specifically described, they are decisive for the consent of the users. Furthermore, our newsletters contain information about us and our services. If necessary, we use mail-order service providers; these and their data are referred to below.

To subscribe to our newsletters, it is generally sufficient to provide your e-mail address. However, we may ask you to provide a name for the purpose of personal contact in the newsletter or other information if this is necessary for the purposes of the newsletter.

The registration for our newsletter is always done in a so-called double opt-in procedure: After registration you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary to ensure that no one can register with foreign e-mail addresses. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored by the shipping service provider are also logged.

We may store the unsubscribed e-mail addresses for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests before we delete them in order to be able to prove a previously given consent. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defense against claims. An individual request for deletion is possible at any time, provided that the former existence of a consent is confirmed at the same time. In case of obligations to permanently observe contradictions, we reserve the right to store the e-mail address in a blacklist for this purpose alone.

The logging of the registration procedure is based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO for the purpose of proving its proper execution. If we commission a service provider to send e-mails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure sending system.

Newsletters are sent on the basis of the consent of the recipients or, if consent is not required, on the basis of our legitimate interests in direct marketing, if and to the extent permitted by law, e.g. in the case of existing customer advertising. The registration process will be recorded on the basis of our legitimate interests to demonstrate that it has been carried out in accordance with the law.

Content: Information about us, our services, actions and offers.

Measurement of success: The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened or, if we use a mailing service provider, from their server. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information such as information on the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of retrieval, is initially collected.

This information is used for the technical improvement of our newsletter based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined by means of the IP address) or the access times. This analysis also includes determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is not our intention to monitor individual users. Rather, we use the evaluations to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

The evaluation of the newsletter and the measurement of success are carried out, subject to the express consent of the users, on the basis of our legitimate interests for the purpose of using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves our business interests and meets the expectations of the users.

A separate revocation of the performance measurement is unfortunately not possible. In this case the entire newsletter subscription must be cancelled or objected to.

Consent to the sending of mailings can be made dependent on the user's consent as a prerequisite for the use of free services (e.g. access to certain contents or participation in certain campaigns). If users wish to take advantage of the free service without registering for the newsletter, we ask them to contact us.

Right of withdrawal

You have the right to revoke your consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation. You can send or notify us of your revocation of consent at any time (for example, by e-mail toinfo@l-i-g.net).

You can also exercise your consent simply by clicking on the link provided for this purpose in our newsletter.

Right of objection

If the processing of your data is not covered by the consent (especially protocol files), you have the right to object.

You can send or inform us of your objection at any time (for example, by e-mail toinfo@l-i-g.net).

  • Processed data types:inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times).

  • Special categories of data:health data, if applicable (Art. 9 para. 1 DGSVO).

  • Purposes of processing:Communication partners, users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services).

  • Purposes of processing:Direktmarketing (z.B. per E-Mail oder postalisch), Vertragliche Leistungen und Service, Kontaktanfragen und Kommunikation, Reichweitenmessung (z.B. Zugriffsstatistiken, Erkennung wiederkehrender Besucher), Tracking (z.B. interessens-/verhaltensbezogenes Profiling, Nutzung von Cookies), Profiling (Erstellen von Nutzerprofilen).

  • Legal basis:Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO), legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO).

  • Opt-out:You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent or object to further receipt. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter either at the end of each newsletter or can otherwise use one of the contact options listed above, preferably e-mail.

13. Contact possibility via the website

Due to legal regulations, the website of LIG 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 you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data you provide will be stored automatically. Such personal data that you voluntarily provide to us will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting you. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

14. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

We process and store your personal data only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or if this is required by the European Directives and Regulations or any other legislation in laws or regulations to which we are 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.

  • the data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6, paragraph 1, letter a, DSGVO or Art. 9, paragraph 2, letter a, DSGVO, 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 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 have been 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 has been collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Art. 8 para. 1 DSGVO.

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

If the personal data has been made public by LIG GmbH and our company as the data controller is obliged to delete the personal data pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 DSGVO, LIG GmbH shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data that the data subject has requested that these other data controllers delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The employee of LIG GmbH will take the necessary steps in individual cases.

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 limit 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 that allows 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 in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO and it is not yet clear whether the justified reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.

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

f) Right to data transferability

Any person affected 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 data controller, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. He/she also has the right to have this data communicated to another controller without interference from 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 of the DPA or Art. 9, paragraph 2, letter a of the DPA or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6, paragraph 1, letter b of the DPA, and provided that the processing is carried out with the aid 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.

Furthermore, when exercising their right to data transfer in accordance with Art. 20, paragraph 1 of the DPA, the data subject has the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

In the event of an objection, LIG GmbH will no longer process 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 to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If LIG GmbH processes personal data for the purpose of direct advertising, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to LIG GmbH processing for the purposes of direct marketing, LIG GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

addition, the data subject shall have the right to object, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her being processed by LIG GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 (1) DSGVO, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact any employee of LIG GmbH or any other employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his or 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.

h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar way, provided that the decision

(1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or

(2) is authorised by Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject and that law contains adequate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject; or

(3) with the express consent of the person concerned.

If the decision

(2) it is carried out with the express consent of the person concerned,

the LIG GmbH shall take reasonable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, which shall include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the responsible person, to present its own standpoint and to challenge the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

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 contact an employee of the data controller at any time.

(j) Right to complain to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which you are resident, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you is in breach of the DPA.

16. data protection in applications and in the application process

We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing can also be done electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits the relevant application documents to us electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website.

If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests on our part stand in the way of deletion. Other legitimate interests in this sense are, for example, a duty of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

  • Types of data processed: Applicant data (e.g. personal details, postal and contact addresses, the documents belonging to the application and the information contained therein, such as cover letter, curriculum vitae, certificates and other information about the applicant's person or qualification provided by the applicant with regard to a specific position or voluntarily), inventory data (e.g., job title, job title, job description, job title, job title, job title, job description, job title, job title, job title, job title, job title, job title, job title, job title, job title, job title, job title, job title, job title, job title, job title, job title, job title, and job title), inventory data (e.g. e.g. names, addresses), contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses).

  • Data subjects: Applicants, employees (e.g. employees, applicants, former employees).

  • Purposes of processing: Application procedure (justification and possible later implementation and possible later termination of the employment relationship.).

  • Legal basis: Art. 9 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO (application procedure as a pre-contractual or contractual relationship). Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO (e.g. health data, such as severely handicapped status or ethnic origin) are requested from applicants in the context of the application procedure so that the responsible person or the data subject can exercise the rights arising to him or her from employment law and social security and social protection law and fulfil his or her obligations in this respect, their processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 9 paragraph 2 letter b DPA, in the case of protection of vital interests of applicants or other persons according to Art. 9 paragraph 2 letter c DPA, or for the purposes of health care or occupational medicine, for the assessment of the employee's ability to work, for medical diagnosis, care or treatment in the health or social field or for the management of systems and services in the health or social field according to Art. 9 paragraph 2 letter h DPA. In the case of communication of special categories of data based on voluntary consent, their processing is based on art. 9 par. 2 letter a DPA), Fulfilment of contract and pre-contractual requests (art. 6 par. 1 sent. 1 letter b DPA), Legitimate interests (art. 6 par. 1 sent. 1 letter f DPA).

Applications can also reach us via recruiting platforms or external application service providers. We do not always have influence on which job advertisements are offered by the service providers. The respective services and service providers are then responsible for compliance with data protection regulations within their sphere of influence.

17. use of social media plugins or links

We currently use the following Social Media Plugins: Facebook, Instagram, YouTube. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plugins. You can recognize the provider of the plugin by its initial letter or logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plugin via the button. Only if you click on the marked box and thereby activate it, the plugin provider will receive the information that you have visited the corresponding website of our online offer. Additional data is also transmitted. In the case of Facebook and Xing, according to the respective providers in Germany, the IP address is anonymized immediately after it is collected. By activating the plugin, your personal data is transmitted to the respective plugin provider and stored there (in the case of US providers in the USA). Since the plugin provider collects data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via the security settings of your browser.

We have no influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information about the deletion of the collected data by the plugin provider.

The plugin provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of presenting need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Through the plugins we offer you the possibility to interact with the social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. Legal basis for the use of the Plugins is art. 6 exp. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The data transfer is independent of whether you have an account with the plugin provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in at the plugin provider, your data collected by us will be directly assigned to your existing account at the plugin provider. If you click on the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plugin provider will also save this information in your user account and publicly share it with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as you can avoid an assignment to your profile at the plugin provider.

Alternatively, if only links to services are included, you will be redirected to our respective page after clicking the link, i.e. only then will data be transferred to the corresponding service.

For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the plugin provider, please refer to the privacy policies of these providers, which are provided below. There you will also find further information about your rights and settings to protect your privacy.

Note on data transfer to the USA:The service provider is based in the USA. In its ruling of 16.07.2020, the European Court of Justice declared the agreement on the so-called EU-US Privacy Shield to be invalid (C-311/18).

We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to surrender personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against this. Therefore, it cannot be excluded that US authorities (e.g. secret services) may process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

 

18. privacy policy for our Facebook fanpage

On the social media platform Facebook we operate a so-called Facebook fan page. Facebook Ireland Ltd ("Facebook") provides us as the operator "Facebook Insights". These are various statistics that provide us with information about how visitors use our Facebook fan page. You can also find further information on this athttps://www.facebook.com/business/pages/manage#page_insights..

Various information provided by you (including personal data) is processed by Facebook to create these statistics.

22. application and use of Google Analytics for web analysis

We have integrated the component Google Analytics (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data about which website a person concerned came to a website from (so-called referrers), which sub-pages 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 and for cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

Operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization ("anonymous IP"). By means of this addition, the IP address of your Internet connection is shortened and anonymized by Google if the access to our Internet pages occurs from a member state of the European Union or from another state that is a signatory to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is the analysis of visitor flows on our website. Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, among other things, to compile online reports for us which show the activities on our website and to provide further services in connection with the use of our website.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

Google Analytics sets a cookie on your system. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyze the use of our website. Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by us and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on your system is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Google receives knowledge of personal data, such as your IP address, which serves Google, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.

By means of the cookie, personal information such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of your visits to our website is stored. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of your Internet connection, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate 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 Google from setting a cookie on your system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, you have the possibility to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to the use of this website as well as to the processing of this data by Google and to prevent such a collection. For this purpose, you must download and install a browser add-on under the linkhttps://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptoutThis browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as a contradiction. If your system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, you must reinstall the Browser Add-On in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the Browser Add-On is uninstalled or deactivated by you or another person within your sphere of control, you have the option of reinstalling or reactivating the Browser Add-On.

24. use and application of Google reCAPTCHA

This website uses Google reCAPTCHA, a captcha service provided by Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google reCAPTCHA is used to ensure that input on our website is actually made by real people and not automatically, e.g. by software (so-called robots).

For this purpose, reCAPTCHA (No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA) displays a checkbox that you can click on "I am not a robot". The reCAPTCHA analyzes the user's behavior when he visits the website. In addition, you may be shown different images after clicking the checkbox. You have to assign the images to a given image motif by clicking on the appropriate image (e.g. selection of all images with cars).

The integration of reCAPTCHA is done via an interface ("API") to the Google services. By integrating reCAPTCHA, Google may collect and process information (including personal data). It cannot be excluded that Google may also transfer the information to a server in a third country.

27. use of payment service providers

Within the scope of contractual and other legal relationships, due to legal obligations or otherwise based on our legitimate interests, we offer the persons concerned efficient and secure payment options and use other payment service providers in addition to banks and credit institutions (collectively "payment service providers").

The data processed by the payment service providers includes inventory data, such as name and address, bank data, such as account or credit card numbers, passwords, TANs and checksums, as well as contract, sum and recipient related data. These details are required to complete the transactions. However, the data entered is only processed by the payment service providers and stored by them, i.e. we do not receive any account- or credit card-related information, but only information with confirmation or negative information about the payment. Under certain circumstances, the payment service providers may transfer the data to credit agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to check identity and creditworthiness. In this regard, we refer to the general terms and conditions and the data protection information of the payment service providers.

For payment transactions, the terms and conditions and the data protection notices of the respective payment service providers apply, which can be accessed within the respective websites or transaction applications. We also refer to these for further information and the assertion of rights of revocation, disclosure and other rights of affected persons.

  • Types of data processed: inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), payment data (e.g. bank details, invoices, payment history), contract data (e.g. subject matter of the contract, duration, customer category), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses), contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers), content data (e.g. text entries, photographs, videos).
  • Data subjects: Customers, interested parties, users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services).
  • Purposes of processing: contractual services and performance, tracking (e.g. interest/behavioural profiling, use of cookies), feedback (e.g. collecting feedback via online form), contact requests and communication, affiliate tracking.
  • Legal basis:Fulfilment of contract and pre-contractual inquiries (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b. DSGVO), legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f. DSGVO), consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO).

 

Used services and service providers:

 

 

Note on data transfer to the USA:The service provider has its (main) headquarters in the USA. In its ruling of 16.07.2020, the European Court of Justice declared the agreement on the so-called EU-US Privacy Shield to be invalid (C-311/18).

We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to surrender personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against this. Therefore, it cannot be excluded that US authorities (e.g. secret services) may process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

 

28. legal basis of the processing

In the following, we provide the legal basis of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), on the basis of which we process personal data. Please note that in addition to the regulations of the DSGVO, national data protection regulations may apply in your or our country of residence and domicile.

In addition to the data protection regulations of the Basic Data Protection Regulation, national data protection regulations apply in Germany. These include in particular the law on protection against misuse of personal data in data processing ((Federal Data Protection Act) Bundesdatenschutzgesetz - BDSG). In particular, the BDSG contains special regulations on the right to information, the right to deletion, the right of objection, the processing of special categories of personal data, processing for other purposes and transmission as well as automated decision making in individual cases including profiling. Furthermore, it regulates data processing for the purposes of the employment relationship (§ 26 BDSG), in particular with regard to the establishment, implementation or termination of employment relationships and the consent of employees. Furthermore, state data protection laws of the individual federal states may apply.

Art. 6 para. 1 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 required for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. The same shall apply 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 Para. 1 lit. c DSGVO.

Finally, processing operations may be based on Art. 6 para. 1 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 person responsible (Recital 47 Sentence 2 DSGVO).

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

29. storage period of personal data

We process and store your personal data only for the period of time necessary to fulfill the purpose of storage or if this is required by law or regulation. Your personal data will be deleted or blocked once the purpose is no longer applicable or fulfilled. In the case of blocking, the data will be deleted as soon as there are no legal, statutory or contractual retention periods to the contrary and there is no reason to assume that deletion would adversely affect your interests worthy of protection, and deletion would not cause disproportionately high costs due to the special type of storage.

Otherwise, specific criteria for the retention period are listed in the individual sections of this data protection notice.

30. updating/deleting your personal data

You may review, change or delete the personal information provided to us at any time by sending an e-mail toinfo@l-i-g.net. In this way you can also opt out of receiving further information in the future.

Likewise, you have the right to revoke any consent you have given at any time with effect for the future.

The data processed by us will be deleted in accordance with the legal requirements as soon as the consents granted for processing are revoked or other permissions cease to apply (e.g. if the purpose for processing this data has ceased to exist or if it is no longer necessary for the purpose).

Unless the data are deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing is limited to these purposes, i.e. the data are blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained for reasons of commercial or tax law or that must be stored for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person.

31. legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal 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 person concerned 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, the person concerned 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.

32. existence of automated decision making

As a responsible company, we avoid automated decision making.

Changes in the law or changes in our internal processes may make it necessary to adapt this data protection notice. We ask you to inform yourself regularly about the content of our data protection information.
