Your rights as a data subject

We would first like to notify you of your rights as a data subject. These rights are set out in Articles 15 - 22 GDPR, and include:

  • The right of access (Art. 15 GDPR),
  • The right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR),
  • The right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR),
  • The right to object to data processing (Art. 21 GDPR),
  • The right to erasure / right to be forgotten (Art. 17 GDPR),
  • The right to restriction of data processing (Art. 18 GDPR).

To exercise these rights, please contact:

E-Mail: possible.sh-holding@bechtle.com

The same applies if you have any questions regarding data processing in our organization or when you wish to withdraw your consent. You also have a right of appeal to the relevant data protection supervisory authority.

Right to object

Please note the following with respect to your right to object:

If we process your personal data for direct marketing, you have the right to object to this data processing at any time without providing the reasons for such objection. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with direct marketing.

If you object to the processing for direct marketing, we will no longer process your personal data for such purposes. The objection is free of charge and can be made informally, where appropriate to:

possible.sh-holding@bechtle.com.

Should we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you may object to such processing at any time for reasons that arise from your specific situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We will then cease to process your personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing such information that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is intended to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Purposes and legal bases of data processing

The processing of your personal data complies with the provisions of the GDPR and all other applicable data protection regulations. Legal bases for data processing arise in particular from Art. 6 GDPR.

We use your data to initiate business, to fulfil contractual and legal obligations, to conduct the contractual relationship, to offer products and services and to consolidate customer relationships, which may include marketing and direct marketing. Your consent also constitutes a legal basis for data processing. In this respect, we will inform you of the purposes of data processing and the right to withdraw your consent.

Data transfers / Disclosure to third parties

We will only transmit your data to third parties within the scope of given statutory provisions or based on consent. In all other cases, information will not be transferred to third parties unless we are obliged to do so owing to mandatory legal regulations (disclosure to external bodies, including the supervisory authorities or law enforcement authorities).

Data recipients / categories of recipients

In our organisation, we ensure that only individuals who are required to process the relevant data to fulfil their contractual and legal obligations are authorised to handle personal data.

In some cases, service providers assist our specialist departments to fulfil their tasks. The necessary data protection contract has been concluded with all service providers.

Transfers of personal data to third countries

A transfer of data to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) shall only take place if required by law, if necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract concluded or if you have provided your consent for such a transfer.

In such cases, compliance with the level of data protection is ensured by appropriate measures according to Art. 44 et seq. GDPR.

Period of data storage

We store your data for as long as such is required for the relevant processing purposes. Please note that numerous retention statutory periods require that data must be stored for a specific period. This relates in particular to retention obligations for commercial or fiscal purposes (e.g. commercial code, tax code, etc.). The data will be routinely deleted after use unless a further period of retention is required.

We may also retain data if you have given us your permission to do so, or in the event of any legal disputes and we use the evidence within the statutory limitation period, which may be up to 30 years; the standard limitation period is 3 years.

Secure transfer of data

We implement the appropriate technical and organisational security measures to ensure the optimal protection of the data stored by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. The security levels are continuously reviewed in collaboration with security experts and adapted to new security standards.

The data exchange to and from our website is encrypted. We provide https as a transfer protocol for our website, and always use the latest encryption protocols.

Obligation to provide data

A range of personal data is required to establish, implement and terminate the obligation and the fulfilment of the relevant contractual and legal obligations. The same applies to the use of our website and the various functions we provide.

In some cases, legal regulations require data to be collected or made available. Please note that it will not be possible to process your request without this information.

Data categories, sources and origin of data

The data we process is defined by the relevant context.

a)     Cookies (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, f GDPR, Section 25 Para. 1, 2 TTDSG – The German Federal Law on Data Protection and the Protection of Privacy in Telecommunications and Telemedia)

On our website, we are using so-called cookies. Cookies use to make our content more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text-files, which are stored (locally) in your devices ́ browser. Cookies are containing pseudonymous data only, in most cases even only anonymous data. Some cookies are persisting for a single browsing session (so-called session-cookies); others are active for a longer period of time (so-called persistent cookies, such as e.g. the ones used to save consent-settings). The latter kind of cookies is subject to auto-deletion after its pre- set expiration (usually 6 months).

We do not use any technologies or services to analyze the behavior of visitors to our website.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you may deactivate, restrict or delete cookies manually by your browsers ́ settings or software-based. Should cookies be deactivated, our website may eventually not be used anymore or to a limited extent, only.

b)     Log files (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR)

We collect and process the following data when you visit our website:

  • Name des Internet Service-Providers
  • Information on the website from which you visited us
  • Web browser and operating system used
  • The IP address by your allocated Internet service provider
  • Files accessed, volume of data transferred, downloads/file export
  • Information on websites accessed on our site, including date and time

For reasons of technical security (in particular to safeguard against attempts to attack of our web server), this data is stored in accordance with Article 6 (1) lit f GDPR. Anonymization takes place no later than after seven days by abbreviating the IP address so that no reference is made to the user.

c)     Contact via email (Article 6 Para.1 lit. a, b GDPR)

We provide you with the option to contact us per email.

If you contact us by email, we will process the personal information provided in the email solely for the purpose of processing your request.

If necessary to process your request, it can also be forwarded to one of the consortium partners named in the imprint.

Any information collected will be deleted after the respective purpose has been achieved.

Links to other providers

Our website also contains clearly identifiable links to the Internet sites of other companies. Although we provide links to websites of other providers, we have no influence on their content, and no guarantee or liability can therefore be assumed for such. The content of these pages is always the responsibility of the respective provider or operator of the pages.

The linked pages were checked at the time of linking for potential legal violations and identifiable infringements. No illegal content was identified at the time of linking. However, a permanent content control of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of an infringement and, upon notification of a violation of rights; such links will be promptly removed.
