1.1 Processing of personal data and its purpose

Detectomat GmbH (hereinafter "Detectomat" or "we") processes personal user data only to the extent necessary to provide a functioning website and our contents and services. When you visit our website, the following data is processed:

  • Internet service provider of the user
  • Date and time of access to our website
  • files accessed on our websites
  • Website from which the user has accessed our website
  • Website that the user accesses via our websites.

The processing and temporary storage of the IP address is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. The IP address of the user must be stored for the duration of the session. The log files contain IP addresses or other data that make it possible to assign the user. The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the web pages. In addition, the data serves to optimize our websites and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. Any processing of personal data is carried out exclusively for the aforementioned purposes and to the extent necessary to achieve these purposes. This data is not used for advertising, customer service or market research purposes.

1.2 Legal basis for the processing of personal data

The processing of our users' personal data is carried out regularly with the user's consent. An exception applies in such cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and where we are permitted by law to process the data. Data and log files are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GMO.

1.3 Data erasure and storage time

The personal data of the persons concerned will be deleted or blocked by us as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. In the case of data processing for the provision of the web pages, the deletion takes place when the respective session has ended. If personal data is stored in log files, it will be deleted after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible if the IP addresses of the users are deleted or altered beforehand, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

If Detectomat processes your personal data, you are a person concerned pursuant to Art. 4 No. 1 DS-GMO with the following rights towards us: 

11.1 Right to information

In accordance with Art. 15 DS-GMO, you can ask us to confirm whether personal data concerning you will be processed by us. If we process your personal data, you can request the following information from us:

  • the processing purposes;
  • the categories of personal data we process;
  • the recipients or categories of recipients to whom we have disclosed or will disclose your personal data;
  • (if possible) the planned duration for which we store your personal data or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining the storage period;
  • the existence of a right to have your personal data concerning you corrected or deleted, a right to have processing restricted by us or a right to object to such processing;
  • the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
  • any available information about the origin of the data, unless the personal data has been collected from you;
  • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling (Art. 22 para. 1 and 4 DS-GMO) and - at least in these cases - meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for you.

You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees in accordance with Art. 46 DS-GMO in connection with the transmission.

11.2 Right to correction

In accordance with Art. 16 DS-GMO, you have the right to request us to correct and/or complete any inaccurate personal data concerning you.

11.3 Right to cancellation

You may request us to delete your personal data immediately in accordance with Art. 17 DS-GMO. We are obliged to delete your data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:

  • Your personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
  • You revoke your consent, on which we base the processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GMO or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DS-GMO, and there is no other legal basis for the processing. 
  • You file an objection to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) DS-GMO and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing or you file an objection to processing pursuant to Article 21(2) DS-GMO. 
  • Your personal data has been processed unlawfully. 
  • The deletion of your personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which we are subject. 
  • Your personal data have been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 para. 1 DS-GMO.

If we have made your personal data public and we are obliged to delete them in accordance with Art. 17 para. 1 DS-GMO, we will take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform those responsible for data processing who process the personal data that you as the data subject have requested the deletion of all links to your personal data or of copies or replications of your personal data. 

The right to cancellation does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary

  • to exercise freedom of expression and information;
  • to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject or to perform a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority assigned to us;
  • on grounds of public interest in the field of public health (Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) DS-GMO);
  • for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 DS-GMO, insofar as the aforementioned right is likely to make it impossible or seriously impair the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or
  • to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

 11.4 Right to limitation of processing

Under the following conditions, you can request the restriction of the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 18 DS-GMO:

  • if you dispute the accuracy of your personal data for a period of time that enables us to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
  • if the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted;
  • if we no longer need your personal data for the purposes of processing, but you do need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or
  • if you have filed an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DS-GMO and it is not yet clear whether our justified reasons outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of your personal data has been restricted, these data may only be processed - apart from being stored - with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State. If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by us before the restriction is lifted.

11.5 Right to information

If you have exercised your right to correct, delete or limit the processing towards us, we are obliged under Article 19 DS-GMO to inform all recipients to whom we have disclosed your personal data, unless this proves to be impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. We have the right to be informed of these recipients.

11.6 Right to Data Transferability

In accordance with Art. 20 DS-GMO, you have the right to have your personal data, which you have provided to us, stored in a structured database.

11.7 Right of objection

According to Art. 21 DS-GMO, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f DS-GMO for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. We will not subsequently process your personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for our processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

11.8 Right to revoke the data protection declaration of consent

You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time, for example by e-mail to[please complete e-mail address]. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing that has taken place on the basis of the consent until revocation.

11.9 Automated decision in individual cases including profiling

According to Article 22 DS-GMO, you have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing - including profiling - which has legal effect against you or significantly affects you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision 

  • is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and us,
  • is admissible by law of the Union or of the Member States to which we are subject and that law contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests; or
  • with your express consent.

 11.10. Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State where you are staying, working or suspected of infringing, if you believe that the processing of your personal data by us is contrary to the DS GMO.
