The website of the Z+S Zahlen und Struktur GmbH uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on a computer system via an internet browser.

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, the Z+S Zahlen und Struktur GmbH can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

A cookie can be used to optimize the information and offers on our website in the interests of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. The user of a website that uses cookies does not have to enter his access data every time he visits the website, because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time using 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 using an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, under certain circumstances, not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.

COLLECTION OF GENERAL DATA AND INFORMATION

The website of the Z+S Zahlen und Struktur GmbH collects a series of general data and information each time a data subject or an automated system calls up the website. This general data and information is stored in the server’s log files. The following can be recorded: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that use an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serves to avert risks in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, Z+S Zahlen und Struktur GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated statistically and further by Z+S Zahlen und Struktur GmbH with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security in our company to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directors and regulators not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – which has legal effects or similarly significantly affects them, if the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the person responsible, or (2) is permissible due to European Union or Member State law to which the person responsible is subject and this legislation takes appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject or (3) with the express consent of the data subject.

If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between the data subject and the person responsible or (2) it takes place with the express consent of the data subject, the Z+S Zahlen und Struktur GmbH takes appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well to protect the legitimate interests of the data subject, which includes at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the person responsible, to state their position and to contest the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise their right to withdraw consent, they can contact an employee of the controller at any time.

LEGAL BASIS OF PROCESSING

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data 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 that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data 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 to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or another third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh them. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, the European legislator took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

LEGITIMATE INTERESTS IN PROCESSING THAT WILL BE TRACKED BY THE RESPONSIBLE OR A THIRD PARTY

As the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR it is our legitimate interest in carrying out our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.

DURATION FOR WHICH THE PERSONAL DATA IS STORED

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the period has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted if the data are no longer required to fulfil or initiate a contract.

LEGAL OR CONTRACTUAL RULES FOR PROVIDING PERSONAL DATA; REQUIREMENT FOR CONTRACTING; OBLIGATION OF THE INTERESTED PARTY TO PROVIDE THE PERSONAL DATA; POSSIBLE CONSEQUENCES OF NON-FULFILLMENT

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information about the contracting party). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data that we subsequently have to process. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would result in the contract not being concluded with the person concerned. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of not providing the personal data.

EXISTENCE AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
