Data protection declaration
Data protection is of particular importance to us. The use of our Internet pages is generally possible without additional personal data (hereinafter referred to as pbD).
However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special services of our company via our website, processing pbD may become necessary. If pbD processing is required and there is no legal basis, we generally obtain voluntary consent.
The processing of pbD always takes place in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (hereinafter DSGVO) and in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act (hereinafter BDSG) and the regulations and ordinances specific to the respective valid federal state. By means of this data protection declaration we would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the pbD collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, data subjects will be informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
As data controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures (hereinafter referred to as TOMs) in order to ensure the most complete possible protection of the pbD processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit pbD to us by alternative means, for example by fax.
Our data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Regulation Giver when issuing the DSGVO. Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand both for the public and for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we explain the terms used in advance.
PbD is all information that can be directly or indirectly related to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject").
A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose pbD are processed by the controller.
Processing means any operation carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures in connection with pbD, such as collection, recording, organisation, arrangement, storage, adaptation or modification, reading, querying, use, disclosure by transmission, distribution or any other form of provision, reconciliation or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.
Restriction of processing
Limitation of processing is the marking of stored pbDs with the aim of restricting their future processing. profiling Profiling is any type of automated processing pbD that consists in evaluating certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular in order to analyse or predict aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, whereabouts or relocation of that natural person.
Pseudonymization is the processing of pbD in a way in which the pbD can no longer be assigned to a specific person affected without the use of additional information. This additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures that ensure that the pbD cannot be assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
Responsible or for the processing
The controller or controller is the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body which alone or together with others decides on the purposes and means of the processing of pbD. Where the purposes and means of such processing are laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for his appointment may be laid down in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States.
Contractor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes pbD on behalf of the person responsible.
The recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to which pbD is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. Authorities which may receive pbD under Union law or the law of the Member States within the framework of a specific investigation mandate shall not be regarded as recipients.
A third party is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body other than the person concerned, the person responsible, the processor and the persons who are authorised to process the pbD under the direct responsibility of the person responsible or the processor.
Consent shall mean any informed and unequivocal statement of intent, in the form of a declaration or other clear affirmative act, voluntarily given by the data subject for the particular case, indicating that he/she agrees to the processing of the pbD concerning him/her.
The name and address of the controller
Responsible in the sense of the DSGVO:
ALMiG Kompressoren GmbH
Name and address of the data protection officer
The data protection officer (hereinafter DPO) is the controller:
Telefon +49 (0)7949 940982
Any person concerned can contact our DSB directly at any time with any questions or suggestions regarding data protection.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs.
Collection of general data and information
Our website collects a series of general data and information each time a person or an automated system visits our website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server.
We record the type and version of browser used, the operating system used by the accessing system, the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (referrer), the subwebsites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, the date and time of access to the website, an Internet protocol address (IP address), the Internet service provider of the accessing system and other similar data and information which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to correctly deliver the contents of our website, to optimize the contents of our website as well as the advertising for it, to ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.
We therefore evaluate this anonymously collected data and information statistically and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order ultimately to ensure an optimum level of protection for the pbD processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all pbD specified by a person affected.
Legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If processing pbD is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to such processing processes that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of pbD becomes necessary, for example for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c DSGVO. In rare cases, processing of pbD may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1)(f) of the DSBER. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. Such processing procedures are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47, second sentence, DSGVO).
Entitled interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of pbD is based on Article 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, it is in our legitimate interest to conduct our business for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
Duration for which the pbD are stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of pbD is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of pbD; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the pbD; possible consequences of failure to provide the pbD
We inform you that the provision of pbD is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes pbD available to us, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to make pbD available to us if our company enters into a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the pbD would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be concluded. Before the person concerned makes pbD available, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the pbD is required by law or contract or required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the pbD and what consequences the failure to make the pbD available would have.
Existence of automated decision making
As a responsible company, we do without automatic decision-making or profiling.
Contact via the website
Due to legal regulations, our website contains information that enables rapid electronic contact with our company and direct communication with us. If a data subject contacts the data controller via e-mail or a contact form, the pbD transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such pbD transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. These pbD are not passed on to third parties.
Routine deletion and blocking of pbd
The controller shall process and store the data subject's pbD only for the time necessary to achieve the data retention purpose or where provided for by the European regulator or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject. If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European directives and regulators or another competent legislator expires, the pbD will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Rights of the data subject
Right to confirmation
Any data subject shall have the right to request confirmation from the controller as to whether pbD concerning him/her are being processed. If a person concerned wishes to make use of this right of confirmation, he can contact the above-mentioned contact person at any time. Right to information Every person concerned by the processing of pbD has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation giver to receive at any time, free of charge, information from the controller about the pbD stored relating to his person and a copy of this information. Furthermore, the European regulator has granted the data subject the following information:
- the processing purposes
- the categories pbD to be processed
- the beneficiaries or categories of beneficiaries to whom the pbDs have been or are still being disclosed, in particular beneficiaries in third countries or international organisations
- if possible, the planned duration for which the pbD will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this duration
- the existence of a right to have the data relating to them corrected or deleted or to have their processing restricted by the controller or to object to such processing
- the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority
- if the pbD are not collected from the person concerned: All available information about the origin of the data
- the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling in accordance with Article 22(1), (4) DSGVO and - at least in these cases - meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject
- the data subject shall also have a right to know whether pbD has been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject also has the right to obtain information on the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer.
If a person concerned wishes to make use of this right of information, he can contact the above contact person at any time.
Right to correction
Any person concerned by the processing of pbD shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to request the immediate rectification of incorrect pbD concerning him/her. Furthermore, the data subject has the right, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to request the completion of incomplete pbD, including by means of a supplementary declaration. If a person concerned wishes to make use of this right of rectification, he can contact the above contact person at any time.
Right to cancellation (right to be forgotten)
Every person concerned by the processing of pbD has the right granted by the European guideline and regulation giver to require the responsible person to demand that the pbD concerning them be deleted immediately, provided that one of the following reasons applies and insofar as the processing is not necessary:
- The pbD were collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
- The data subject withdraws his/her consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) DSBER or Article 9(2)(a) DSBER, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
- The data subject objects to processing under Article 21(1) DSBER and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing or the data subject objects to processing under Article 21(2) DSBER.
- The pbDs were processed unlawfully.
- The deletion of the pbD is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject.
- The pbD were collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 para. 1 DSGVO.
If one of the above-mentioned reasons applies and a person concerned wishes to have pbD stored with us deleted, they can contact the above-mentioned contact person at any time.
If the pbD has been made public by us and if our company as the responsible party is obliged to delete the pbD pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 DSGVO, we shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other persons responsible for data processing who process the published pbD, that the person concerned has requested the deletion of all links to these pbD or of copies or replications of these pbD from these other persons responsible for data processing, insofar as processing is not necessary. After successful examination in individual cases, we will take the necessary steps.
Right to limitation of processing
Any person concerned by the processing pbD has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation giver to require the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions is met:
- the correctness of the pbD is disputed by the person concerned for a period of time which enables the person responsible to check the correctness of the pbD.
- The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to delete the pbD and instead requests that the use of the pbD be restricted.
- The data controller no longer needs the pbD for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
- The data subject has filed an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh those of the data subject. If one of the above-mentioned conditions is fulfilled and a person concerned wishes to request the restriction of pbD, which is stored with us, he can contact the above-mentioned contact person at any time. After successful testing, we will arrange for the processing to be restricted.
Right to data transferability
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European regulator and guarantor to receive the pbD relating to him/her provided by the data subject to a data controller in a structured, current and machine-readable format. It also has the right to transmit this data to another controller without obstruction by the controller to whom the pbD has been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and that the processing is carried out using automated procedures, provided that the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of public authority which was transferred to the controller. Furthermore, in exercising their right to data transferability pursuant to Art. 20 para. 1 DSGVO, the data subject has the right to have the pbD transmitted directly by one responsible person to another responsible person, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that the rights and freedoms of other persons are not affected by this. In order to assert the right to data transferability, the person concerned may contact the above-mentioned contact person at any time.
Right of objection
Any person concerned by the processing of pbD shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to object at any time, for reasons arising from their particular situation, to the processing of pbD concerning them under Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DSGVO. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
We will no longer process the pbD in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If we process pbD in order to carry out direct advertising, the person concerned has the right to object at any time to the processing of pbD for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising.
If the person concerned objects to our processing for direct advertising purposes, we will no longer process the pbD for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right to object, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing pbD concerning him or her which is carried out by us for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 para. 1 DSGVO, unless such processing is necessary to fulfil a task in the public interest.
In order to exercise the right of objection, the person concerned may contact the above-mentioned contact person. The data subject shall also be free to exercise his right of opposition in relation to the use of information society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.
Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling
Any data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effect against it or significantly affects it in a similar manner, provided that the decision
- is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or
- is admissible by law of the Union or of the Member States to which the data controller is subject and that law contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject; or
- with the express consent of the data subject. Is the decision
- necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or
- if it is done with the express consent of the data subject, we shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the data controller, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.
If the person concerned wishes to assert rights with regard to automated decisions, he/she can contact the above-mentioned contact person at any time.
Right to revoke consent under data protection law
Every person affected by the processing of pbD has the right granted by the European guideline and regulation giver to revoke a consent to the processing of pbD at any time. If the data subject wishes to exercise his/her right to withdraw his/her consent, he/she may contact an employee of the controller at any time.
Data protection for applications and in the application process
The controller collects and processes the pbD from applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends corresponding application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions.
If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted three months after notification of the decision of refusal, unless deletion is contrary to other legitimate interests of the controller or to the voluntary consent of the applicant. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
We have integrated the component Google Analytics (with anonymisation function) on our website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to Internet sites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on the website from which a person concerned has accessed a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. The Google Analytics component is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. We use the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, Google shortens and anonymizes the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned when accessing our Internet pages from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information collected to evaluate the use of our website, among other things, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website. Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis.
