And now the legal text:
The person responsible within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation and other national data protection laws of the member states as well as other data protection regulations is the:
planpolitik Simon Raiser and Björn Warkalla GbR
The data protection officer of the responsible person is:
Having said that, we will explain in detail below to you the purpose and extent to which we collect personal information, how we protect your information and how you can protect your privacy.
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), serves as legal basis. The legal basis for the processing to perform our services and implement contractual activities and answering queries is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, the legal basis for the processing to comply with our legal obligations is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR, and the legal basis for the processing to protect our legitimate interests Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or of another individual may require the processing of personal data Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as legal basis.
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as they are no longer required. Storage can be done beyond, if this has been provided by European or national legislation in EU law regulations, laws or regulations, to which the responsible person is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion of a contract or fulfilment of the contract.
Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.
The following data is collected here:
The data is stored in the log files of our system. A storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.
For registered Senaryon users, the following data will also be collected and stored:
Legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website and the software offer to the computer of the user. To do this, the user’s IP address must be kept for the duration of the session.
Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website and the software offer. In addition, the data is used to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
In these purposes lies our legitimate interest in data processing acc. to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. In the case of storing the data in log files, this is the case after one month at the latest. An additional storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the software offer, and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. There is consequently no possibility of objection on the part of the user.
We use the open-source tool “Matomo” to analyse the use of our website. The statistics obtained enable us to regularly improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. We also learn about the extent of the reach of our online offer. Matomo is used within the scope of our legitimate interest as the operator of the website. The following data is collected:
We use Matomo with settings that maximise data protection and thus do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about individual persons. The settings include that no cookies are set, that we do not create so-called heatmaps or session recordings, and that we only retain the data for 90 days. In addition, this website uses Matomo with the “AnonymizeIP” extension. This means that IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, thus excluding the possibility of a direct link to a person. The IP address transmitted by your browser via “Matomo” is not merged with other data collected by us.
We use technical and organizational security measures to ensure that the personal data of our users are protected against loss, incorrect changes or unauthorized access by third parties. Thus, your data will be encrypted when you register, and the passwords and other data will be encrypted and stored with your own security technology. The databases themselves are secured again. In any case, only authorized persons have access to your personal data, and only to the extent that it is necessary for the purposes mentioned above.
If personal data from you is processed, you are concerned in the sense of the GDPR, and you have the following rights to the person responsible:
You may ask the person in charge to confirm if personal data concerning you is processed by us.
If such processing is taking place, you can request information from the person responsible about the following:
You have the right to request information about whether your personal information relates to a third country or an international organization. In this connection, you can request to be informed about the appropriate guarantees in accordance with Art. 46 GDPR in connection with the transmission.
You have a right to rectification and/ or completion to the responsible person if the personal data you process is incorrect or incomplete. The responsible person must make the correction without delay.
You may request the restriction of the processing of your personal data under the following conditions:
If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, this data may only be used 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 for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a Member State.
If the restriction on processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, the person responsible will inform you before the restriction is lifted.
a) deletion obligations
You can ask the person responsible that the personal data concerning you will be immediately deleted, and the manager is obligated to delete that information immediately, unless one of the following reasons applies:
b) Information to third parties
If the responsible person has made the personal data concerning you public and is obligated to their deletion acc. to Art. 17 para. 1 GDPR, he/she takes appropriate measures, including technical means, to inform data controllers who process the personal data, taking into account the technology available and the implementation costs, that you as the data subject have required from him/her the deletion of all links to these personal data or copies or replications of personal data.
The right to erasure does not exist if the processing is necessary
If you have the right of rectification, erasure or restriction of processing to the controller, he/ she is obliged to notify all recipients to whom your personal data have been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves to be impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have a right to the person responsible to be informed about these recipients.
You have the right to receive the personal information that you provide to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transfer this data to another person without hindrance by the person responsible for providing the personal data, provided that
In exercising this right, you have the right also to obtain that your personal data shall be transmitted directly from one person responsible to another person responsible, to the extent this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons may not be affected.
The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority delegated to the controller.
You have the right at any time, for reasons that arise from your particular situation, to object against the processing of your personal data, which are collected based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The controller will no longer process the personal data relating to you unless he/she can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the purposes of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
If the personal data relating to you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.
Regardless of Directive 2002/58/EC, you have the option, in the context of the use of information society services, of exercising your right to opt-out through automated procedures that use technical specifications.
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent according to privacy law at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - that will have legal effect on you or seriously affect you in a similar way. This does not apply if the decision
However, these decisions may not apply to specific categories of personal data under Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g GDPR applies and reasonable measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.
With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the person responsible shall take appropriate measures to uphold the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the controller, to express his/ her own position and to challenge the decision.
Notwithstanding an otherwise administrative or legal proceeding, you have the right to appeal to an oversight authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, your place of work or the location of the alleged violation to if you are of the opinion that the processing of personal data concerning you violates the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy acc. to Art. 78 GDPR.
