1. General notes
We take the protection of your data very seriously and would therefore like to inform you extensively on this page about when and in what quality we collect and use data from you and to what extent this data is made available to third parties.
If a concerned person is interested in using our company’s services via any of our websites, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is required to process personal data, and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the person’s consent.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, email address, or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations. By means of this data protection declaration we would like to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this data protection declaration informs affected persons about their rights.
As data controller, empuxa GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, data transmissions on the Internet may have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us through alternative methods.
The data protection declaration of empuxa GmbH is based on the terminology used by the European legislator when the general data protection regulation (GDPR) was issued.
a. Person concerned
Concerned person means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
b. Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (subsequently referred to as “concerned person”). 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, online identification, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person.
Processing is any operation or set of operations, performed with or without the aid of automated processes, concerning personal data, such as collection, recording, organization, sorting, 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 future processing.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific affected person without the need for additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
f. Responsible person or controller
Responsible person or controller 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 national law, specific criteria for the identification of the controller may be laid down by union or national law.
g. Order processor
Order processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
The recipient is any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third-party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific request for investigation under union or national law shall not be considered as recipients.
Third-party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.
Consent shall mean any freely given and informed unequivocal expression of the concerned person’s wishes in the specific case, in the form of a statement or any other clear confirmation by which the affected person indicates his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
3. The name and contact details of the controller and the data protection officer
The person responsible within the meaning of the general data protection regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the member states of the European Union and other regulations of a data protection law is the:
Reesenbüttler Redder 38a
Phone: +49 4102 7780090
Email: [email protected]
A company data protection officer has not been appointed at empuxa GmbH, as there is no legal requirement for an appointed officer. For all data protection matters, please contact [email protected].
4. Collection and storage of personal data and the type and purpose of their processing
As far as we obtain the consent of the concerned person for processing of personal data, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. a of the EU general data protection basic regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
When processing personal data which is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract to which the concerned person is a party, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations, which are necessary to carry out measures prior to a contract.
As far as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In cases where vital interests of the concerned person or of another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third-party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the concerned person do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
The personal data of the concerned person will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Data may also be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU ordinances, laws or other regulations to which the responsible person is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted when a storage period defined by the standards mentioned above expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data in order to conclude or fulfill a contract:
a. When visiting the website
When you visit our website, the browser used on your device automatically sends information to the server of our website. This information is stored in a so-called log file. The following information is recorded without your intervention and kept until it is automatically deleted:
- name of the website you have accessed,
- requested page contents including transmission protocol,
- browser type,
- browser version,
- operating system used,
- IP address,
- date and time of the server request,
- amount of data,
- HTTP status code,
- referrer URL (the previously visited page),
- requesting provider.
This data is not merged with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
b. When contacting us
If you send us requests (e.g., via email), your details from the request, including the contact details you provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in answering your request in accordance with Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. f German Data Protection Act (GDPR). If your contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, an additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. b German Data Protection Act (GDPR).
You can revoke this processing at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal notification by email. The legitimacy of the data processing operations carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data transmitted by you in the course of contacting us will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose for which it was stored ceases to apply (e.g. after your enquiry has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions — in particular retention periods — remain unaffected.
5. Transfer of data
Your personal data will be transferred from us to third parties exclusively to the service partners involved in the contract processing. In cases where your personal data is passed on to third parties, the scope of the data transmitted is limited to the necessary minimum.
We only pass on your personal data to third parties if:
- you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. a of the GDPR,
- the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data,
- in the event that there is a legal obligation to pass on the data pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. c GDPR, and
- this is legally permissible and required under Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR for the processing of contractual relationships with you.
On request, we will provide you with information at any time about what personal data is stored about you. Furthermore, we will correct or delete personal data at your request or notice, provided that this does not conflict with any statutory storage obligations.
