Privacy Policy

We are very pleased that you are interested in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of Bizlearn. In principle, it is possible to use the Bizlearn website without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special company services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no 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 shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Bizlearn. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of the rights to which they are entitled by means of this data protection declaration.

As the controller responsible for processing, Bizlearn has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the personal data processed via this website. 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 in alternative ways, for example by telephone.

4. Cookies

The Internet pages of Bizlearn use cookies. Cookies are text files that are filed and saved on a computer system via an Internet browser.

History of privacy settings Change privacy settings

Many websites 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 string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual's browser from other internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular web browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, Bizlearn 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 in the sense of the user. Cookies allow us, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the users of a website that uses cookies do not need to reenter their credentials each time they visit the website, as this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

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

5. Collection of general data and information

The Bizlearn website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by an affected person or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information used to avert threats in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, BizLearn does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore statistically evaluated by Bizlearn with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.

6. Subscription to our newsletter

On the Bizlearn website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise's newsletter. Which personal data is transmitted to the person responsible for processing when ordering the newsletter results from the input mask used for this purpose.

The Bizlearn informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about company offers. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the person concerned if (1) the person concerned has a valid e-mail address and (2) the person concerned registers for the newsletter dispatch. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by a data subject for the first time for the newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address, as the person concerned, has authorized receipt of the newsletter.

When subscribing to the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration, as assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP). The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of an affected person's e-mail address at a later date and therefore serves as legal safeguards for the controller.

The personal data collected in the context of registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively to send our newsletter. Subscribers to the newsletter may also be notified by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or registration, as might be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter or technical changes. There will be no transfer of the personal data collected as part of the newsletter service to third parties. Subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for the newsletter dispatch can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking the consent, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, directly on the controller's website, or to inform the controller in a different way.

7. Newsletter tracking

The Bizlearn newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in e-mails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Bizlearn can see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.

Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the person responsible for processing in order to optimize the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant separate declaration of consent given via the double opt-in procedure. After a revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the person responsible for processing. The Bizlearn automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

8. Contact options via the website

Due to legal regulations, the Bizlearn website contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a person concerned contacts the person responsible for processing by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned will be automatically saved. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

9. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage or, as the case may be, by the European directives or regulations or by any other legislator in laws or regulations which the controller was provided for.

If the storage purpose is omitted or if a storage period prescribed by the European directives and regulations or any other relevant legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

10. Rights of the data subject

  • a) Right to confirmation

    Each data subject has the right, as granted by the European directives and regulations, to require the controller to confirm whether personal data relating to him / her is being processed.

    If one of the above reasons applies and a data subject wishes to have personal data stored at Bizlearn deleted, they can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The Bizlearn employee will ensure that the request for deletion is complied with immediately.

    If the personal data was made public by Bizlearn and our company, as the person responsible, is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 Para. 1 DS-GVO, Bizlearn shall take appropriate measures, including technical ones, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs to notify other data controllers processing the published personal data that the data subject has requested those other data controllers to delete any links to, or copies or replications of, that personal data , insofar as the processing is not necessary. The employee of Bizlearn will arrange the necessary in individual cases.

  • e) Right to restriction of processing

    Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulatory authority, to require the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions applies:

11. Data protection provisions on the application and use of Adobe Analytics (Omniture) / Adobe Marketing Cloud

The data controller has integrated components from Adobe on this website. Adobe Analytics (Omniture) or the Adobe Marketing Cloud (hereinafter referred to as "Omniture") is an instrument that enables more efficient online marketing and web analysis. Omniture is part of the Adobe Marketing Cloud. The Adobe Marketing Cloud enables real-time analysis of visitor flows on websites. The real-time analyzes include project reports and allow an ad-hoc analysis of website visitors. Customer interactions are presented in such a way that the data controller is given a better overview of the online activities of the users of this website by displaying the data in simple and interactive dashboards and converting them into reports. This enables the person responsible for processing to receive information in real time and thus to recognize problems that arise more quickly.

The operator of these services is Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited, 4-6 Riverwalk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, Ireland.

Omniture sets a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned (cookies have already been explained in advance; you can read about this above). The person responsible for processing ensures through a server setting that the tracking data records transmitted to the Adobe data center are anonymized before geolocation. The anonymization is implemented by replacing the last part of the IP address. The person responsible for processing has made settings on the server side, on the basis of which the IP address of the person concerned is anonymized independently of each other for geolocation and range measurement before processing. On behalf of the controller, Adobe will use the data and information obtained via our website to evaluate the user behavior of the person concerned. Furthermore, Adobe will use the data to create reports on user activities on our behalf and to provide other services for our company that are related to the use of our website. Adobe does not combine the IP address of the data subject with other personal data.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting in the Internet browser used would also prevent Omniture from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, the cookies already set by Omniture can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to the collection of the data generated by the Adobe cookie relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Adobe and to prevent this. To do this, the person concerned must press the unsubscribe button under the link http://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/opt-out.html, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the information technology system used by the person concerned. If the cookies are deleted on the data subject's system after an objection, the data subject must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

By setting the opt-out cookie, however, it is possible that the website of the controller for the data subject is no longer fully usable.

Adobe's current data protection regulations can be found at http://www.adobe.com/de/privacy.html.

12. Data protection provisions on the application and use of Facebook

The controller has integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that typically allows users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform to exchange views and experiences, or allows the Internet community to provide personal or business information. Facebook allows social network users to create private profiles, upload photos and socialize via friend requests.

Facebook's operating company is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. Persons responsible for the processing of personal data, if an affected person lives outside the US or Canada, are Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Each visit to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned automatically by the respective Facebook Component causes a representation of the corresponding Facebook component of Facebook to download. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US. As part of this technical process, Facebook receives information about which specific underside of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the data subject is simultaneously logged into Facebook, Facebook recognizes with each visit to our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website, which specific underside of our website the data subject visits. This information is collected through the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the person concerned activates one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and saves this personal data ,

Facebook always receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transfer of this information to Facebook is not wanted by the data subject, it can prevent the transfer by logging out of their Facebook account before calling our website.

The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, different applications are available, which make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.

13. Data protection provisions on the application and use of Google AdWords

The person responsible for processing has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place advertisements in Google's search engine results as well as in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords enables an advertiser to define certain keywords in advance by means of which an advertisement is only displayed in Google's search engine results if the user calls up a keyword-relevant search result with the search engine. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed to topic-related websites using an automatic algorithm and taking into account the previously defined keywords.

The operating company of Google AdWords services is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertising on our website.

If a person concerned reaches our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the information technology system of the person concerned by Google. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the person concerned. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, for example the shopping cart from an online shop system, have been accessed on our website. The conversion cookie enables both we and Google to understand whether a person concerned who came to our website via an AdWords ad generated sales, i.e. completed or canceled a purchase.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords advertisements, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords advertisement and to optimize our AdWords advertisements for the future . Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the person concerned.

The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass this personal data collected through the technical process on to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of 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 conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the opportunity to object to Google's interest-based advertising. To do this, the person concerned must access the link www.google.com/settings/ads from each of the Internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there.

Additional information and Google's privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

14. Data protection provisions on the application and use of Instagram

The controller has integrated components of the Instagram service on this website. Instagram is a service that qualifies as an audiovisual platform, allowing users to share photos and videos, and also disseminate such data to other social networks.

The operating company of Instagram's services is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2 Ireland.

Each visit to one of the pages of this website operated by the controller and on which an Instagram component (Insta-Button) has been integrated automatically causes the internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned through the respective Instagram component causes to download a representation of the corresponding component of Instagram. As part of this technical process, Instagram is aware of which specific bottom of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the data subject is logged in to Instagram at the same time, Instagram recognizes with each visit to our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website which specific subpage the affected person visits. This information is collected through the Instagram component and assigned through Instagram to the affected person's Instagram account. If the person concerned activates one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transferred with it are assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the person concerned and saved and processed by Instagram.

Through the Instagram component, Instagram always receives information that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is simultaneously logged into Instagram at the time of accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person clicks on the Instagram component or not. If the affected person does not want to transmit this information to Instagram, the latter can prevent the transmission from logging out of their Instagram account before calling our website.

Further information and Instagram's privacy policy can be found at https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388 and https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/.

15. Privacy Policy for Use and Use of LinkedIn

The controller has integrated components from LinkedIn Corporation on this website. LinkedIn is an Internet-based social network that allows users to connect to existing business contacts and make new business contacts. 400 million registered people use LinkedIn in more than 200 countries.

Each time you visit our website, which has a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in), this component causes the browser used by the subject to download a corresponding representation of the LinkedIn component. More information about the LinkedIn plug-ins can be found at https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. As part of this technical process, LinkedIn learns about the specific bottom of our website visited by the affected person.

If the data subject is logged in to LinkedIn at the same time, LinkedIn recognizes with each visit to our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website which specific bottom of our website the data subject visits. This information is collected through the LinkedIn component and linked by LinkedIn to the affected LinkedIn's LinkedIn account. If the affected person activates a LinkedIn button integrated on our website, LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the person concerned and saves this personal data.

LinkedIn always receives information via the LinkedIn component that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is simultaneously logged into LinkedIn at the time of accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person clicks on the LinkedIn component or not. If the affected person does not want to transmit this information to LinkedIn, the latter can prevent it from logging out of their LinkedIn account before visiting our website.

At https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls, LinkedIn offers the ability to opt out of email messages, text messages, and targeted ads, as well as manage ad settings. LinkedIn also uses partners like Quantcast, Google Analytics, BlueKai, DoubleClick, Nielsen, Comscore, Eloqua and Lotame, who can set cookies.

17. Data protection provisions on the application and use of YouTube

The controller has integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an internet video portal that allows video publishers to freely watch video clips and other users for free viewing, rating and commenting. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, so that both complete film and television broadcasts, but also music videos, trailers or user-made videos via the Internet portal are available.

YouTube's operating company is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

Each visit to one of the pages of this site operated by the controller and incorporating a YouTube component (YouTube video) will automatically cause the Internet browser on the subject's information technology system to be represented by the respective YouTube component to download an illustration of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube.

18. Privacy Policy for Use and Use of DoubleClick

The controller has integrated DoubleClick by Google components on this website. DoubleClick is a brand of Google, under which mainly special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and publishers.

Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

DoubleClick by Google transmits data to the DoubleClick server with every impression, click, or other activity. Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to the affected person's browser. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are, has already been explained above. The purpose of the cookie is to optimize and display advertising. The cookie is used, among other things, to serve and display user-relevant advertisements, as well as to generate reports on advertising campaigns or to improve them. Furthermore, the cookie is used to avoid multiple impressions of the same advertising.

DoubleClick uses a cookie ID, which is required to complete the technical process. For example, the cookie ID is needed to display an ad in a browser. DoubleClick can also use the cookie ID to see which ads have already appeared in a browser to avoid duplication. It's also possible for DoubleClick to track conversions with the cookie ID. Conversions are captured, for example, when a user has previously shown a DoubleClick ad and then, with the same internet browser, makes a purchase on the advertiser's website.

A DoubleClick cookie does not contain any personally identifiable information. However, a DoubleClick cookie may contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier identifies the campaigns the user was already in contact with.

Each time one of the pages of this site is accessed by the controller and a DoubleClick component has been integrated into it, the internet browser on the subject's information technology system is automatically prompted by the relevant DoubleClick component for purposes to submit online advertising and commission billing to Google. As part of this technical process, Google will be aware of data that Google uses to create commission billing. Google can understand, among other things, that the person has clicked on certain links on our website.

The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, cookies already set by Google can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs.

Additional information and DoubleClick by Google's applicable privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/.

19. Data protection regulations for the application and use of reCAPTCHA

We have integrated Google reCAPTCHA components on our website. Google reCAPTCHA is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited and enables us to distinguish whether a contact request comes from a natural person or is automated using a program. When you access this content, you establish a connection to the servers of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, whereby your IP address and, if applicable, browser data such as your user agent are transmitted.

Furthermore, Google reCAPTCHA records the dwell time and mouse movements of the user in order to distinguish automated requests from human ones. This data is processed solely for the above purposes and to maintain the security and functionality of Google reCAPTCHA.

The service is used on the basis of our legitimate interests, ie for protection when submitting forms in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f of the GDPR.

The specific storage period of the processed data cannot be influenced by us, but is determined by Google Ireland Limited. You can find further information in the data protection declaration for Google reCAPTCHA: https://policies.google.com/privacy

20. Data Protection Provisions for the Application and Use of Contact Form 7

The Contact Form 7 plugin is a service for creating contact forms. The Contact Form plug-in is only used to forward entered form data to the e-mail address of our company. Additional storage, e.g. B. in the WordPress database, does not take place. Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Contact Form can be found at https://de.wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7/ and https://rocklobster.in/. Contact Form is open source software. The communication between the browser and the server takes place exclusively via HTTPS (SSL/TLS) encryption.

21. Data protection regulations for the deployment and use of Popup Maker

The Popup Maker plugin uses anonymous cookies. The cookies used are so-called non-tracking cookies. Popup Maker tracks popup views and conversions anonymously. Furthermore, no user data is sent outside of this page by pop-up makers.

22. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 I lit. A DS-GMO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract of which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GMO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GMO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance 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 I lit. d DS-GMO.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GMOs. On this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly allowed to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. It considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

23. Legitimate interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

Our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders, if the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GMO.

24. Duration for which the personal data will be stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.

25. Statutory or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

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 about the contracting party).
Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed.
Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of the non-provision of the personal data.

26. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
