Categories of data / data sources
We process the following personal data within the framework of the contractual relationship and for the initiation of a business relationship:
For business customers:
- Contact data (e.g. first/surname of current and previous contact persons, if applicable, name affixes, company name and address (employer), telephone number including extensions, business e-mail address)
- Occupational data (e.g. department including position)
As a matter of principle, we collect your personal data directly from you within the framework of the initiation of a business relationship or within the framework of current contractual transactions.
Purposes and legal base of data processing
When processing your personal data, the provisions of the GDPR, local data protection laws and other relevant legal provisions are always observed.
Your personal data is exclusively processed for the execution of pre-contractual measures (e.g. for the preparation of offers for products or services) and/or for the fulfilment of contractual obligations (e.g. for the execution of our services or for sales/order/payment processing), (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR) or if there is a legal obligation for processing (e.g. due to tax regulations) (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR). Personal data was originally collected for these purposes.
Of course, your consent may also constitute a legal basis for the processing of your personal data (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). Before you grant such consent, we will inform you about the purpose of the data processing and about your right of revocation according to Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR. Should the consent also refer to the processing of special categories of personal data in accordance with Art. 9 GDPR, we will explicitly point this out to you in advance.
KRS-SEIGERT GmbH is also interested in maintaining the customer-relationship with you and wants to provide you with information on our company / products / services via email. Therefore, we process your data to send you such information and offers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR).
Your personal data will only be processed for the detection of criminal offences if the requirements of Art. 10 GDPR are met.
Duration of data storage
We will delete data as soon as your data is no longer needed for the above-mentioned purposes or in the event that you revoked your consent. Data will only be stored beyond the existence of the contractual relationship only in cases in which we are either obliged or entitled to do so. Regulations, which oblige us to keep data, can for example be found in commercial or tax laws. This may result in a storage period of up to ten years. In addition, statutory limitation periods must be observed.
Data recipients / categories of recipients
In our company, we make sure that only those departments and individuals receive your data that need them to fulfil contractual and legal obligations.
In certain cases, service providers like IT-service, transportation-service, etc. support our specialist departments in fulfilling their tasks. In this case, the necessary data protection agreements have been concluded with all service providers.
Furthermore, in cases provided by law, we are obliged to transfer certain information to public authorities, e.g. tax authorities, possibly also law enforcement and customs authorities.
Transfer / intention to transfer data to a third country
A transfer of data to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) only takes place if this is necessary for the execution of the underlying relationship or required by law or if you have given us your consent.
We do not transfer your personal data to service providers or to group companies outside the European Economic Area.
Rights of data subjects
Your rights as a data subject are set out in Articles 15 - 22 GDPR, and include:
- The right to access (Art. 15 GDPR),
- The right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR),
- The right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR),
- The right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR),
- The right to object to processing (Art. 21 GDPR),
- The right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR).
To exercise these rights, please contact: Datenschutz@krs-seigert.de.
This also applies, if you have any question regarding the processing of data in our company or if you want to revoke your consent given. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authorities.
In the event that 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.
Obligation to provide data
Certain personal data needs to be provided in the framework of our contractual/business relationship as such data are necessary for the establishment, execution and termination of the contractual relationship and the fulfilment of the associated contractual and legal obligations. Without the provision of such data, an execution of the above tasks and duties is not possible.
Automated individual decision-making
We do not use purely automated processing to make decisions.
