Privacy Policy

We are very delight­ed that you have shown inte­rest in our enter­pri­se. Data pro­tec­tion is of a par­ti­cu­lar­ly high prio­ri­ty for the manage­ment of the Text&Aktion GbR. The use of the Inter­net pages of the Text&Aktion GbR is pos­si­ble without any indi­ca­ti­on of per­so­nal data; howe­ver, if a data sub­ject wants to use spe­cial enter­pri­se ser­vices via our web­site, pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data could beco­me necessa­ry. If the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data is necessa­ry and the­re is no sta­tu­to­ry basis for such pro­ces­sing, we gene­ral­ly obtain con­sent from the data sub­ject.

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

As the con­trol­ler, the Text&Aktion GbR has imple­men­ted nume­rous tech­ni­cal and orga­ni­za­tio­nal mea­su­res to ensu­re the most com­ple­te pro­tec­tion of per­so­nal data pro­ces­sed through this web­site. Howe­ver, Internet-based data trans­mis­si­ons may in princip­le have secu­ri­ty gaps, so abso­lu­te pro­tec­tion may not be gua­ran­teed. For this rea­son, every data sub­ject is free to trans­fer per­so­nal data to us via alter­na­ti­ve means, e.g. by tele­pho­ne.

  1. Defi­ni­ti­ons

The data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on of the Text&Aktion GbR is based on the terms used by the Euro­pean legis­la­tor for the adop­ti­on of the Gene­ral Data Pro­tec­tion Regu­la­ti­on (GDPR). Our data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on should be legi­ble and under­stan­d­a­ble for the gene­ral public, as well as our custo­mers and busi­ness part­ners. To ensu­re this, we would like to first exp­lain the ter­mi­no­lo­gy used.

In this data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on, we use, inter alia, the fol­lo­wing terms:

  • a)    Per­so­nal data

Per­so­nal data means any infor­ma­ti­on rela­ting to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fia­ble natu­ral per­son (“data sub­ject”). An iden­ti­fia­ble natu­ral per­son is one who can be iden­ti­fied, direct­ly or indi­rect­ly, in par­ti­cu­lar by refe­rence to an iden­ti­fier such as a name, an iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on num­ber, loca­ti­on data, an online iden­ti­fier or to one or more fac­tors spe­ci­fic to the phy­si­cal, phy­sio­lo­gi­cal, gene­tic, men­tal, eco­no­mic, cul­tu­ral or soci­al iden­ti­ty of that natu­ral per­son.

  • b) Data sub­ject

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

  • c)    Pro­ces­sing

Pro­ces­sing is any ope­ra­ti­on or set of ope­ra­ti­ons which is per­for­med on per­so­nal data or on sets of per­so­nal data, whe­ther or not by auto­ma­ted means, such as collec­tion, record­ing, orga­ni­sa­ti­on, struc­tu­ring, sto­ra­ge, adap­tati­on or alte­ra­ti­on, retrie­val, con­sul­ta­ti­on, use, dis­clo­sure by trans­mis­si­on, dis­se­mi­na­ti­on or other­wi­se making avail­ab­le, align­ment or com­bi­na­ti­on, restric­tion, era­su­re or dest­ruc­tion.

  • d)    Restric­tion of pro­ces­sing

Restric­tion of pro­ces­sing is the mar­king of stored per­so­nal data with the aim of limi­ting their pro­ces­sing in the future.

  • e)    Pro­filing

Pro­filing means any form of auto­ma­ted pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data con­sis­ting of the use of per­so­nal data to eva­lua­te cer­tain per­so­nal aspects rela­ting to a natu­ral per­son, in par­ti­cu­lar to ana­ly­se or pre­dict aspects con­cer­ning that natu­ral person’s per­for­mance at work, eco­no­mic situa­ti­on, health, per­so­nal pre­fe­ren­ces, inte­rests, relia­bi­li­ty, beha­viour, loca­ti­on or move­ments.

  • f)     Pseud­ony­mi­sa­ti­on

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

  • g)    Con­trol­ler or con­trol­ler respon­si­ble for the pro­ces­sing

Con­trol­ler or con­trol­ler respon­si­ble for the pro­ces­sing is the natu­ral or legal per­son, public aut­ho­ri­ty, agen­cy or other body which, alo­ne or joint­ly with others, deter­mi­nes the pur­po­ses and means of the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data; whe­re the pur­po­ses and means of such pro­ces­sing are deter­mi­ned by Uni­on or Mem­ber Sta­te law, the con­trol­ler or the spe­ci­fic cri­te­ria for its nomi­na­ti­on may be pro­vi­ded for by Uni­on or Mem­ber Sta­te law.

  • h)    Pro­ces­sor

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

  • i)      Reci­pi­ent

Reci­pi­ent is a natu­ral or legal per­son, public aut­ho­ri­ty, agen­cy or ano­t­her body, to which the per­so­nal data are dis­c­lo­sed, whe­ther a third par­ty or not. Howe­ver, public aut­ho­ri­ties which may recei­ve per­so­nal data in the frame­work of a par­ti­cu­lar inqui­ry in accord­ance with Uni­on or Mem­ber Sta­te law shall not be regar­ded as reci­pi­ents; the pro­ces­sing of tho­se data by tho­se public aut­ho­ri­ties shall be in com­pli­an­ce with the app­li­ca­ble data pro­tec­tion rules accord­ing to the pur­po­ses of the pro­ces­sing.

  • j)      Third par­ty

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

  • k)    Con­sent

Con­sent of the data sub­ject is any free­ly given, spe­ci­fic, infor­med and unam­bi­guous indi­ca­ti­on of the data subject’s wis­hes by which he or she, by a state­ment or by a clear affir­ma­ti­ve action, signi­fies agree­ment to the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data rela­ting to him or her.

  1. Name and Address of the con­trol­ler

  1. Coo­kies

The Inter­net pages of the Text&Aktion GbR use coo­kies. Coo­kies are text files that are stored in a com­pu­ter sys­tem via an Inter­net brow­ser.

Many Inter­net sites and ser­vers use coo­kies. Many coo­kies con­tain a so-called coo­kie ID. A coo­kie ID is a uni­que iden­ti­fier of the coo­kie. It con­sists of a cha­rac­ter string through which Inter­net pages and ser­vers can be assi­gned to the spe­ci­fic Inter­net brow­ser in which the coo­kie was stored. This allows visi­ted Inter­net sites and ser­vers to dif­fe­ren­tia­te the indi­vi­du­al brow­ser of the dats sub­ject from other Inter­net brow­sers that con­tain other coo­kies. A spe­ci­fic Inter­net brow­ser can be reco­gni­zed and iden­ti­fied using the uni­que coo­kie ID.

Through the use of coo­kies, the Text&Aktion GbR can pro­vi­de the users of this web­site with more user-friendly ser­vices that would not be pos­si­ble without the coo­kie set­ting.

By means of a coo­kie, the infor­ma­ti­on and offers on our web­site can be opti­mi­zed with the user in mind. Coo­kies allow us, as pre­vious­ly men­tio­ned, to reco­gni­ze our web­site users. The pur­po­se of this reco­gni­ti­on is to make it easier for users to uti­li­ze our web­site. The web­site user that uses coo­kies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the web­site is acces­sed, becau­se this is taken over by the web­site, and the coo­kie is thus stored on the user’s com­pu­ter sys­tem. Ano­t­her examp­le is the coo­kie of a shop­ping cart in an online shop. The online store remem­bers the arti­cles that a custo­mer has pla­ced in the vir­tu­al shop­ping cart via a coo­kie.

The data sub­ject may, at any time, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies through our web­site by means of a cor­re­spon­ding set­ting of the Inter­net brow­ser used, and may thus per­man­ent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Fur­ther­mo­re, alre­ady set coo­kies may be dele­ted at any time via an Inter­net brow­ser or other soft­ware pro­grams. This is pos­si­ble in all popu­lar Inter­net brow­sers. If the data sub­ject deac­tiva­tes the set­ting of coo­kies in the Inter­net brow­ser used, not all func­tions of our web­site may be ent­i­re­ly usable.

  1. Collec­tion of gene­ral data and infor­ma­ti­on

The web­site of the Text&Aktion GbR collects a series of gene­ral data and infor­ma­ti­on when a data sub­ject or auto­ma­ted sys­tem calls up the web­site. This gene­ral data and infor­ma­ti­on are stored in the ser­ver log files. Collec­ted may be (1) the brow­ser types and ver­si­ons used, (2) the ope­ra­ting sys­tem used by the acces­sing sys­tem, (3) the web­site from which an acces­sing sys­tem reaches our web­site (so-called refer­rers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Inter­net site, (6) an Inter­net pro­to­col address (IP address), (7) the Inter­net ser­vice pro­vi­der of the acces­sing sys­tem, and (8) any other simi­lar data and infor­ma­ti­on that may be used in the event of attacks on our infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tems.

When using the­se gene­ral data and infor­ma­ti­on, the Text&Aktion GbR does not draw any con­clu­si­ons about the data sub­ject. Rather, this infor­ma­ti­on is nee­ded to (1) deli­ver the con­tent of our web­site cor­rect­ly, (2) opti­mi­ze the con­tent of our web­site as well as its adver­ti­se­ment, (3) ensu­re the long-term via­bi­li­ty of our infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tems and web­site tech­no­lo­gy, and (4) pro­vi­de law enforce­ment aut­ho­ri­ties with the infor­ma­ti­on necessa­ry for cri­mi­nal pro­se­cu­ti­on in case of a cyber-attack. The­re­fo­re, the Text&Aktion GbR ana­ly­zes anony­mous­ly collec­ted data and infor­ma­ti­on sta­tis­ti­cal­ly, with the aim of increa­sing the data pro­tec­tion and data secu­ri­ty of our enter­pri­se, and to ensu­re an opti­mal level of pro­tec­tion for the per­so­nal data we pro­cess. The anony­mous data of the ser­ver log files are stored sepa­r­a­te­ly from all per­so­nal data pro­vi­ded by a data sub­ject.

  1. Rou­ti­ne era­su­re and blocking of per­so­nal data

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

If the sto­ra­ge pur­po­se is not app­li­ca­ble, or if a sto­ra­ge peri­od pre­scri­bed by the Euro­pean legis­la­tor or ano­t­her com­pe­tent legis­la­tor expi­res, the per­so­nal data are rou­ti­nely blo­cked or era­sed in accord­ance with legal requi­re­ments.

  1. Rights of the data sub­ject
  • a) Right of con­fir­ma­ti­on

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

  • b) Right of access

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

  • the pur­po­ses of the pro­ces­sing;
  • the cate­go­ries of per­so­nal data con­cer­ned;
  • the reci­pi­ents or cate­go­ries of reci­pi­ents to whom the per­so­nal data have been or will be dis­c­lo­sed, in par­ti­cu­lar reci­pi­ents in third coun­tries or inter­na­tio­nal orga­ni­sa­ti­ons;
  • whe­re pos­si­ble, the envi­sa­ged peri­od for which the per­so­nal data will be stored, or, if not pos­si­ble, the cri­te­ria used to deter­mi­ne that peri­od;
  • the exis­tence of the right to request from the con­trol­ler rec­tifi­ca­ti­on or era­su­re of per­so­nal data, or restric­tion of pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data con­cer­ning the data sub­ject, or to object to such pro­ces­sing;
  • the exis­tence of the right to lodge a com­p­laint with a super­vi­so­ry aut­ho­ri­ty;
  • whe­re the per­so­nal data are not collec­ted from the data sub­ject, any avail­ab­le infor­ma­ti­on as to their source;
  • the exis­tence of auto­ma­ted decision-making, inclu­ding pro­filing, refer­red to in Arti­cle 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in tho­se cases, mea­ning­ful infor­ma­ti­on about the logic invol­ved, as well as the signi­fi­can­ce and envi­sa­ged con­se­quen­ces of such pro­ces­sing for the data sub­ject.

Fur­ther­mo­re, the data sub­ject shall have a right to obtain infor­ma­ti­on as to whe­ther per­so­nal data are trans­fer­red to a third coun­try or to an inter­na­tio­nal orga­ni­sa­ti­on. Whe­re this is the case, the data sub­ject shall have the right to be infor­med of the appro­pria­te safe­guards rela­ting to the trans­fer.

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

  • c) Right to rec­tifi­ca­ti­on

Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the Euro­pean legis­la­tor to obtain from the con­trol­ler without undue delay the rec­tifi­ca­ti­on of inac­cu­ra­te per­so­nal data con­cer­ning him or her. Taking into account the pur­po­ses of the pro­ces­sing, the data sub­ject shall have the right to have incom­ple­te per­so­nal data com­ple­ted, inclu­ding by means of pro­vi­ding a sup­ple­men­ta­ry state­ment.

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

  • d) Right to era­su­re (Right to be for­got­ten)

Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the Euro­pean legis­la­tor to obtain from the con­trol­ler the era­su­re of per­so­nal data con­cer­ning him or her without undue delay, and the con­trol­ler shall have the obli­ga­ti­on to era­se per­so­nal data without undue delay whe­re one of the fol­lo­wing grounds app­lies, as long as the pro­ces­sing is not necessa­ry:

  • The per­so­nal data are no lon­ger necessa­ry in rela­ti­on to the pur­po­ses for which they were collec­ted or other­wi­se pro­ces­sed.
  • The data sub­ject with­draws con­sent to which the pro­ces­sing is based accord­ing to point (a) of Arti­cle 6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of Arti­cle 9(2) of the GDPR, and whe­re the­re is no other legal ground for the pro­ces­sing.
  • The data sub­ject objects to the pro­ces­sing pur­suant to Arti­cle 21(1) of the GDPR and the­re are no over­ri­ding legi­ti­ma­te grounds for the pro­ces­sing, or the data sub­ject objects to the pro­ces­sing pur­suant to Arti­cle 21(2) of the GDPR.
  • The per­so­nal data have been unla­w­ful­ly pro­ces­sed.
  • The per­so­nal data must be era­sed for com­pli­an­ce with a legal obli­ga­ti­on in Uni­on or Mem­ber Sta­te law to which the con­trol­ler is sub­ject.
  • The per­so­nal data have been collec­ted in rela­ti­on to the offer of infor­ma­ti­on socie­ty ser­vices refer­red to in Arti­cle 8(1) of the GDPR.

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

Whe­re the con­trol­ler has made per­so­nal data public and is obli­ged pur­suant to Arti­cle 17(1) to era­se the per­so­nal data, the con­trol­ler, taking account of avail­ab­le tech­no­lo­gy and the cost of imple­men­ta­ti­on, shall take rea­son­ab­le steps, inclu­ding tech­ni­cal mea­su­res, to inform other con­trol­lers pro­ces­sing the per­so­nal data that the data sub­ject has requested era­su­re by such con­trol­lers of any links to, or copy or repli­ca­ti­on of, tho­se per­so­nal data, as far as pro­ces­sing is not requi­red. An employees of the Text&Aktion GbR will arran­ge the necessa­ry mea­su­res in indi­vi­du­al cases.

  • e) Right of restric­tion of pro­ces­sing

Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the Euro­pean legis­la­tor to obtain from the con­trol­ler restric­tion of pro­ces­sing whe­re one of the fol­lo­wing app­lies:

  • The accu­ra­cy of the per­so­nal data is con­tested by the data sub­ject, for a peri­od enab­ling the con­trol­ler to veri­fy the accu­ra­cy of the per­so­nal data.
  • The pro­ces­sing is unla­w­ful and the data sub­ject oppo­ses the era­su­re of the per­so­nal data and requests ins­te­ad the restric­tion of their use ins­te­ad.
  • The con­trol­ler no lon­ger needs the per­so­nal data for the pur­po­ses of the pro­ces­sing, but they are requi­red by the data sub­ject for the esta­blish­ment, exer­cise or defence of legal claims.
  • The data sub­ject has objec­ted to pro­ces­sing pur­suant to Arti­cle 21(1) of the GDPR pen­ding the veri­fi­ca­ti­on whe­ther the legi­ti­ma­te grounds of the con­trol­ler over­ri­de tho­se of the data sub­ject.

If one of the afo­re­men­tio­ned con­di­ti­ons is met, and a data sub­ject wis­hes to request the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data stored by the Text&Aktion GbR, he or she may at any time con­tact any employee of the con­trol­ler. The employee of the Text&Aktion GbR will arran­ge the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing.

  • f) Right to data por­ta­bi­li­ty

Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the Euro­pean legis­la­tor, to recei­ve the per­so­nal data con­cer­ning him or her, which was pro­vi­ded to a con­trol­ler, in a struc­tu­red, com­mon­ly used and machine-readable for­mat. He or she shall have the right to trans­mit tho­se data to ano­t­her con­trol­ler without hin­dran­ce from the con­trol­ler to which the per­so­nal data have been pro­vi­ded, as long as the pro­ces­sing is based on con­sent pur­suant to point (a) of Arti­cle 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Arti­cle 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a con­tract pur­suant to point (b) of Arti­cle 6(1) of the GDPR, and the pro­ces­sing is car­ri­ed out by auto­ma­ted means, as long as the pro­ces­sing is not necessa­ry for the per­for­mance of a task car­ri­ed out in the public inte­rest or in the exer­cise of offi­ci­al aut­ho­ri­ty vested in the con­trol­ler.

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

In order to assert the right to data por­ta­bi­li­ty, the data sub­ject may at any time con­tact any employee of the Text&Aktion GbR.

  • g) Right to object

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

The Text&Aktion GbR shall no lon­ger pro­cess the per­so­nal data in the event of the objec­tion, unless we can demons­tra­te com­pel­ling legi­ti­ma­te grounds for the pro­ces­sing which over­ri­de the inte­rests, rights and free­doms of the data sub­ject, or for the esta­blish­ment, exer­cise or defence of legal claims.

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

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

In order to exer­cise the right to object, the data sub­ject may con­tact any employee of the Text&Aktion GbR. In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject is free in the con­text of the use of infor­ma­ti­on socie­ty ser­vices, and not­wi­th­stan­ding Direc­tive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by auto­ma­ted means using tech­ni­cal spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons.

  • h) Auto­ma­ted indi­vi­du­al decision-making, inclu­ding pro­filing

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

If the deci­si­on (1) is necessa­ry for ent­e­ring into, or the per­for­mance of, a con­tract bet­ween the data sub­ject and a data con­trol­ler, or (2) it is based on the data subject’s expli­cit con­sent, the Text&Aktion GbR shall imple­ment sui­ta­ble mea­su­res to safe­guard the data subject’s rights and free­doms and legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests, at least the right to obtain human inter­ven­ti­on on the part of the con­trol­ler, to express his or her point of view and con­test the deci­si­on.

If the data sub­ject wis­hes to exer­cise the rights con­cer­ning auto­ma­ted indi­vi­du­al decision-making, he or she may, at any time, con­tact any employee of the Text&Aktion GbR.

  • i) Right to with­draw data pro­tec­tion con­sent

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

If the data sub­ject wis­hes to exer­cise the right to with­draw the con­sent, he or she may, at any time, con­tact any employee of the Text&Aktion GbR.

  1. Data pro­tec­tion for app­li­ca­ti­ons and the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­ce­du­res

The data con­trol­ler shall collect and pro­cess the per­so­nal data of app­li­cants for the pur­po­se of the pro­ces­sing of the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­ce­du­re. The pro­ces­sing may also be car­ri­ed out elec­tro­ni­cal­ly. This is the case, in par­ti­cu­lar, if an app­li­cant sub­mits cor­re­spon­ding app­li­ca­ti­on docu­ments by e-mail or by means of a web form on the web­site to the con­trol­ler. If the data con­trol­ler con­clu­des an employ­ment con­tract with an app­li­cant, the sub­mit­ted data will be stored for the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing the employ­ment rela­ti­ons­hip in com­pli­an­ce with legal requi­re­ments. If no employ­ment con­tract is con­clu­ded with the app­li­cant by the con­trol­ler, the app­li­ca­ti­on docu­ments shall be auto­ma­ti­cal­ly era­sed two mon­ths after noti­fi­ca­ti­on of the refu­sal deci­si­on, pro­vi­ded that no other legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests of the con­trol­ler are oppo­sed to the era­su­re. Other legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in this rela­ti­on is, e.g. a bur­den of pro­of in a pro­ce­du­re under the Gene­ral Equal Tre­at­ment Act (AGG).

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

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted com­pon­ents of the enter­pri­se Face­book. Face­book is a soci­al net­work.

A soci­al net­work is a place for soci­al mee­tings on the Inter­net, an online com­mu­ni­ty, which usual­ly allows users to com­mu­ni­ca­te with each other and inter­act in a vir­tu­al space. A soci­al net­work may ser­ve as a plat­form for the exchan­ge of opi­ni­ons and expe­ri­en­ces, or enab­le the Inter­net com­mu­ni­ty to pro­vi­de per­so­nal or business-related infor­ma­ti­on. Face­book allows soci­al net­work users to inclu­de the crea­ti­on of pri­va­te pro­files, upload pho­tos, and net­work through fri­end requests.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of Face­book is Face­book, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Men­lo Park, CA 94025, United Sta­tes. If a per­son lives out­side of the United Sta­tes or Cana­da, the con­trol­ler is the Face­book Ire­land Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Squa­re, Grand Canal Har­bour, Dub­lin 2, Ire­land.

With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­du­al pages of this Inter­net web­site, which is ope­ra­ted by the con­trol­ler and into which a Face­book com­po­nent (Face­book plug-ins) was inte­gra­ted, the web brow­ser on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly promp­ted to down­load dis­play of the cor­re­spon­ding Face­book com­po­nent from Face­book through the Face­book com­po­nent. An over­view of all the Face­book Plug-ins may be acces­sed under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the cour­se of this tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re, Face­book is made awa­re of what spe­ci­fic sub-site of our web­site was visi­ted by the data sub­ject.

If the data sub­ject is log­ged in at the same time on Face­book, Face­book detects with every call-up to our web­site by the data subject—and for the ent­i­re dura­ti­on of their stay on our Inter­net site—which spe­ci­fic sub-site of our Inter­net page was visi­ted by the data sub­ject. This infor­ma­ti­on is collec­ted through the Face­book com­po­nent and asso­cia­ted with the respec­tive Face­book account of the data sub­ject. If the data sub­ject clicks on one of the Face­book but­tons inte­gra­ted into our web­site, e.g. the “Like” but­ton, or if the data sub­ject sub­mits a com­ment, then Face­book matches this infor­ma­ti­on with the per­so­nal Face­book user account of the data sub­ject and stores the per­so­nal data.

Face­book always recei­ves, through the Face­book com­po­nent, infor­ma­ti­on about a visit to our web­site by the data sub­ject, whene­ver the data sub­ject is log­ged in at the same time on Face­book during the time of the call-up to our web­site. This occurs regard­less of whe­ther the data sub­ject clicks on the Face­book com­po­nent or not. If such a trans­mis­si­on of infor­ma­ti­on to Face­book is not desi­ra­ble for the data sub­ject, then he or she may pre­vent this by log­ging off from their Face­book account befo­re a call-up to our web­site is made.

The data pro­tec­tion gui­de­li­ne published by Face­book, which is avail­ab­le at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, pro­vi­des infor­ma­ti­on about the collec­tion, pro­ces­sing and use of per­so­nal data by Face­book. In addi­ti­on, it is exp­lai­ned the­re what set­ting opti­ons Face­book offers to pro­tect the pri­va­cy of the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, dif­fe­rent con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on opti­ons are made avail­ab­le to allow the eli­mi­na­ti­on of data trans­mis­si­on to Face­book. The­se app­li­ca­ti­ons may be used by the data sub­ject to eli­mi­na­te a data trans­mis­si­on to Face­book.

  1. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of Twit­ter

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted com­pon­ents of Twit­ter. Twit­ter is a mul­ti­lin­gu­al, publicly-accessible micro­blog­ging ser­vice on which users may publish and spread so-called ‘tweets,’ e.g. short messa­ges, which are limi­ted to 280 cha­rac­ters. The­se short messa­ges are avail­ab­le for ever­yo­ne, inclu­ding tho­se who are not log­ged on to Twit­ter. The tweets are also dis­play­ed to so-called fol­lo­wers of the respec­tive user. Fol­lo­wers are other Twit­ter users who fol­low a user’s tweets. Fur­ther­mo­re, Twit­ter allows you to address a wide audi­ence via hash­tags, links or ret­weets.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of Twit­ter is Twit­ter, Inc., 1355 Mar­ket Street, Sui­te 900, San Fran­cis­co, CA 94103, UNITED STATES.

With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­du­al pages of this Inter­net site, which is ope­ra­ted by the con­trol­ler and on which a Twit­ter com­po­nent (Twit­ter but­ton) was inte­gra­ted, the Inter­net brow­ser on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly promp­ted to down­load a dis­play of the cor­re­spon­ding Twit­ter com­po­nent of Twit­ter. Fur­t­her infor­ma­ti­on about the Twit­ter but­tons is avail­ab­le under https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons. During the cour­se of this tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re, Twit­ter gains know­ledge of what spe­ci­fic sub-page of our web­site was visi­ted by the data sub­ject. The pur­po­se of the inte­gra­ti­on of the Twit­ter com­po­nent is a retrans­mis­si­on of the con­tents of this web­site to allow our users to intro­du­ce this web page to the digi­tal world and increa­se our visi­tor num­bers.

If the data sub­ject is log­ged in at the same time on Twit­ter, Twit­ter detects with every call-up to our web­site by the data sub­ject and for the ent­i­re dura­ti­on of their stay on our Inter­net site which spe­ci­fic sub-page of our Inter­net page was visi­ted by the data sub­ject. This infor­ma­ti­on is collec­ted through the Twit­ter com­po­nent and asso­cia­ted with the respec­tive Twit­ter account of the data sub­ject. If the data sub­ject clicks on one of the Twit­ter but­tons inte­gra­ted on our web­site, then Twit­ter assigns this infor­ma­ti­on to the per­so­nal Twit­ter user account of the data sub­ject and stores the per­so­nal data.

Twit­ter recei­ves infor­ma­ti­on via the Twit­ter com­po­nent that the data sub­ject has visi­ted our web­site, pro­vi­ded that the data sub­ject is log­ged in on Twit­ter at the time of the call-up to our web­site. This occurs regard­less of whe­ther the per­son clicks on the Twit­ter com­po­nent or not. If such a trans­mis­si­on of infor­ma­ti­on to Twit­ter is not desi­ra­ble for the data sub­ject, then he or she may pre­vent this by log­ging off from their Twit­ter account befo­re a call-up to our web­site is made.

The app­li­ca­ble data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons of Twit­ter may be acces­sed under https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=en.

  1. Legal basis for the pro­ces­sing

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

  1. Data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons about the app­li­ca­ti­on and use of You­Tube

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted com­pon­ents of You­Tube. You­Tube is an Inter­net video por­tal that enab­les video publishers to set video clips and other users free of char­ge, which also pro­vi­des free viewing, review and com­men­ting on them. You­Tube allows you to publish all kinds of vide­os, so you can access both full movies and TV broad­casts, as well as music vide­os, trai­lers, and vide­os made by users via the Inter­net por­tal.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of You­Tube is You­Tube, LLC, 901 Cher­ry Ave., San Bru­no, CA 94066, UNITED STATES. The You­Tube, LLC is a sub­si­di­a­ry of Goog­le Inc., 1600 Amphi­theat­re Pkwy, Moun­tain View, CA 94043–1351, UNITED STATES.

With each call-up to one of the indi­vi­du­al pages of this Inter­net site, which is ope­ra­ted by the con­trol­ler and on which a You­Tube com­po­nent (You­Tube video) was inte­gra­ted, the Inter­net brow­ser on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject is auto­ma­ti­cal­ly promp­ted to down­load a dis­play of the cor­re­spon­ding You­Tube com­po­nent. Fur­t­her infor­ma­ti­on about You­Tube may be obtai­ned under https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. During the cour­se of this tech­ni­cal pro­ce­du­re, You­Tube and Goog­le gain know­ledge of what spe­ci­fic sub-page of our web­site was visi­ted by the data sub­ject.

If the data sub­ject is log­ged in on You­Tube, You­Tube reco­gni­zes with each call-up to a sub-page that con­ta­ins a You­Tube video, which spe­ci­fic sub-page of our Inter­net site was visi­ted by the data sub­ject. This infor­ma­ti­on is collec­ted by You­Tube and Goog­le and assi­gned to the respec­tive You­Tube account of the data sub­ject.

You­Tube and Goog­le will recei­ve infor­ma­ti­on through the You­Tube com­po­nent that the data sub­ject has visi­ted our web­site, if the data sub­ject at the time of the call to our web­site is log­ged in on You­Tube; this occurs regard­less of whe­ther the per­son clicks on a You­Tube video or not. If such a trans­mis­si­on of this infor­ma­ti­on to You­Tube and Goog­le is not desi­ra­ble for the data sub­ject, the deli­very may be pre­ven­ted if the data sub­ject logs off from their own You­Tube account befo­re a call-up to our web­site is made.

YouTube’s data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons, avail­ab­le at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/, pro­vi­de infor­ma­ti­on about the collec­tion, pro­ces­sing and use of per­so­nal data by You­Tube and Goog­le.

12. The legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests pur­sued by the con­trol­ler or by a third par­ty

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

13. Peri­od for which the per­so­nal data will be stored

The cri­te­ria used to deter­mi­ne the peri­od of sto­ra­ge of per­so­nal data is the respec­tive sta­tu­to­ry reten­ti­on peri­od. After expi­ra­ti­on of that peri­od, the cor­re­spon­ding data is rou­ti­nely dele­ted, as long as it is no lon­ger necessa­ry for the ful­fill­ment of the con­tract or the initia­ti­on of a con­tract.

14. Pro­vi­si­on of per­so­nal data as sta­tu­to­ry or con­trac­tu­al requi­re­ment; Requi­re­ment necessa­ry to enter into a con­tract; Obli­ga­ti­on of the data sub­ject to pro­vi­de the per­so­nal data; pos­si­ble con­se­quen­ces of fail­u­re to pro­vi­de such data

We cla­ri­fy that the pro­vi­si­on of per­so­nal data is part­ly requi­red by law (e.g. tax regu­la­ti­ons) or can also result from con­trac­tu­al pro­vi­si­ons (e.g. infor­ma­ti­on on the con­trac­tu­al part­ner). Some­ti­mes it may be necessa­ry to con­clu­de a con­tract that the data sub­ject pro­vi­des us with per­so­nal data, which must sub­se­quent­ly be pro­ces­sed by us. The data sub­ject is, for examp­le, obli­ged to pro­vi­de us with per­so­nal data when our com­pa­ny signs a con­tract with him or her. The non-provision of the per­so­nal data would have the con­se­quence that the con­tract with the data sub­ject could not be con­clu­ded. Befo­re per­so­nal data is pro­vi­ded by the data sub­ject, the data sub­ject must con­tact any employee. The employee cla­ri­fies to the data sub­ject 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 the con­se­quen­ces of non-provision of the per­so­nal data.

15. Exis­tence of auto­ma­ted decision-making

As a respon­si­ble com­pa­ny, we do not use auto­ma­tic decision-making or pro­filing.

This Pri­va­cy Poli­cy has been gene­ra­ted by the Pri­va­cy Poli­cy Gene­ra­tor of the Ger­man Asso­cia­ti­on for Data Pro­tec­tion that was deve­lo­ped in coope­ra­ti­on with­Pri­va­cy Lawy­ers from WILDE BEUGER SOLMECKE, Colo­gne.
