general information about data processing

Scope of processing of personal data

In principle, we only collect and use our users’ personal data insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website, as well as our content and services. Our users’ personal data is only collected and used regularly with the user’s consent. Cases in which obtaining consent in advance is not possible for factual reasons and in which data processing is permitted by statutory provisions constitute exceptions.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain consent from the data subject for processing personal data, Article 6 (1) lit. a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

 

Article 6 (1) lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of the contract, the contracting party of which is the data subject. This also applies to processing which is required for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

 

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a legal obligation to which Certified Translations Mannheim is subject, Article 6 (1) lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

 

Article 6 (1) lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis in the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make the processing of personal data necessary.

 

If the processing is necessary to maintain a legitimate interest of Certified Translations Mannheim or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the aforementioned interest, Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

Data erasure and storage

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked once the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage may take place beyond this period if this is provided for by the European or national legislative authority in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Blocking or erasure of data also takes place if a storage period provided for by the specified standards expires unless continued storage of the data is necessary for contract conclusion or contract performance.

Protection of minors

Our website is designed and intended for use by adults. Individuals under 18 years of age should not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parent or guardian. We do not request any personal data from children and young people.

Security

We take all reasonable precautions in order to store your personal information securely and require all third parties which handle or process your personal information for us to do the same. Access to your personal information is restricted in order to prevent unauthorised access to it, as well as to prevent it being amended or misused. Our employees and those who work for us may only access it in the scope which is essential to carry out their tasks.

Links

We cannot assume any responsibility for the content of other websites which you may access via a link from our website.

Your rights

You have the right to inform us that you:

– do not wish to be contacted by us in the future;

– wish to receive a copy of the personal information that we have concerning you;

–  wish for us to correct, update or delete your personal information in our records;

– wish to report misuse of your personal information.

SSL encryption

For security reasons and in order to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the enquiries you send to us as the website operator, this website uses SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection because the address bar in the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and because a padlock symbol is shown in your browser bar.

 

If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

PROVISION OF THE WEBSITE AND CREATION OF LOG FILES

Description and scope of data processing

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the computer which accesses the website.

 

The data is also stored in our system’s log files. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

 

If required, you may request a list of the data designation from us.

Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be displayed on the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.

These purposes also cover our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

Duration of storage

The data will be erased once it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of the data for the provision of the website, this applies when the respective session has ended.

 

In the event of the storage of the data in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the users’ IP addresses are erased or association is removed, meaning that they can no longer be attributed to the client accessing the website.

Objection and removal option

The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely essential for the operation of the website. Consequently, the user may not object to this.
