We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH. The use of the Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH internet pages is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.

The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company wishes to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this data protection declaration will inform affected persons about their rights.

The Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH as the data controller has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

4. cookies

The Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH website uses cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many 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 string of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified by its unique cookie ID.

The use of cookies enables Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH to provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the setting of cookies.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised 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. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his access data each time he visits the website because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping basket via a cookie.

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. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable under certain circumstances.

5. acquisition of general data and information

The Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH website collects a series of general data and information each time a person concerned or an automated system accesses the website. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used can be recorded, (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-sites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (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 used to avert dangers in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned when using this general data and information. This information is required to (1) correctly deliver the content of our website, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by the person concerned.

6. registration on our website

The data subject shall have the possibility to register on the website of the controller by providing personal data. The personal data transmitted to the data controller in this process are determined by the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject shall be collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for its own purposes. The controller may arrange for the data to be disclosed to one or more processors, such as a parcel service, who will also use the personal data exclusively for internal purposes attributable to the controller.

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned to the data subject by the Internet service provider (ISP), the date and time of registration shall also be stored. This data is stored in order to prevent misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable us to investigate criminal offences. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to safeguard the data controller. These data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the data is used for criminal prosecution purposes.

The registration of the data subject by voluntarily providing personal data is intended to enable the controller to provide the data subject with content or services which, by their nature, can only be provided to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the data file of the data controller.

The data controller shall inform any data subject at any time upon request as to which personal data about the data subject are stored. Furthermore, the data controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or notice of the data subject, unless this is contrary to any legal obligation to retain such data. The entire staff of the data controller shall be available to the data subject as contact persons in this connection.

7th subscription of our newsletter

On the Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company newsletter. The personal data transmitted to the data controller when the newsletter is ordered can be seen from the input mask used for this purpose.

The Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about offers of the company. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the person concerned if (1) the person concerned has a valid e-mail address and (2) the person concerned registers for the newsletter dispatch. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail in the double opt-in procedure will be sent to the e-mail address entered for the first time by the person concerned for the purpose of sending the newsletter. This confirmation e-mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address as the person concerned has authorised receipt of the newsletter.

When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to track the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later point in time and therefore serves to legally safeguard the data controller.

The personal data collected during registration for the newsletter will be used exclusively to send our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or registration in this respect, as might be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offering or changes to the technical conditions. The personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the person concerned has given us for the newsletter dispatch, can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of the revocation of the consent an appropriate left is in each new type character. It is also possible at any time to unsubscribe from the newsletter dispatch directly on the website of the data controller or to inform the data controller of this in any other way.

8th Newsletter Tracking

The Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH newsletter contains so-called tracking pixels. A pixel-code is a miniature graphic that is embedded in e-mails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded pixel-code, Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH can recognize if and when an e-mail was opened by an affected person and which links in the e-mail were accessed by the affected person.

Such personal data collected via the pixel-code contained in the newsletters will be stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimise the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant separate declaration of consent submitted via the double opt-in procedure. After a revocation these personal data will be deleted by the person responsible for the processing. The Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH automatically interprets a deregistration from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

9. possibility to contact us via the website

The website of the Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH contains, due to legal regulations, information which allows a quick electronic contact to our company as well as a direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the data controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted voluntarily by a data subject to the data controller will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

10. comment function in the blog on the website

The Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH offers users the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog contributions on a blog located on the website of the data controller. A blog is a portal maintained on a website, usually open to the public, in which one or more persons called bloggers or web bloggers can post articles or write thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.

If a data subject leaves a comment in the blog published on this website, information about the time the comment was entered and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject will be stored and published in addition to the comments left by the data subject. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to the person concerned is logged. This IP address is stored for security reasons and in the event that the person concerned violates the rights of third parties by submitting a comment or posts illegal content. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the data controller, so that in the event of a violation of the law, the data controller could exculpate himself. This collected personal data will not be disclosed to third parties unless such disclosure is required by law or serves the legal defence of the data controller.

11. subscription of comments in the blog on the website

The comments made in the Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH blog can be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, it is possible for a commentator to subscribe to the comments following his comment on a specific blog post.

If a data subject chooses the option to subscribe to comments, the data controller shall send an automatic confirmation email to verify by double opt-in that the owner of the specified email address has actually opted for this option. The option to subscribe to comments can be cancelled at any time.

12. routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the storage purpose or as provided for in the laws or regulations of the European Union or of any other lawmaker to which the controller is subject.

If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Body or another competent legislator expires, the personal data shall be blocked or deleted routinely and in accordance with the statutory provisions.

13. rights of the person concerned

  • a) Right to confirmation

    Every data subject shall have the right, granted by the European directive and regulation authority, to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether personal data concerning him or her are being processed.

  • d) Right to deletion (right to be forgotten)

    Every person data subject to the processing of personal data has the right, as granted by the European directive and regulation, to require the controller to erase the personal data concerning him or her without delay if one of the following reasons applies and if the processing is not necessary:

    • The personal data were collected for such purposes or otherwise processed for which they are no longer necessary.

The employee of Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH will arrange for the request for deletion to be complied with immediately.

    • The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses the deletion of the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data.
    • The data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs them for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
    • The data subject has lodged an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DS-GVO and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh those of the data subject.

    If one of the above conditions is met and a person concerned wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored at Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH, he can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH will initiate the restriction of the processing.

  • f) Right to data transferability

    Every person data subject to the processing of personal data has the right, as granted by the European directive and regulation, to have personal data concerning him or her provided by the data subject to a controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format.

This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

    Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH will no longer process personal data in the event of objection, unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

    If Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH processes personal data in order to conduct direct advertising, the person concerned has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising.

    If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the person responsible or (2) is made with the express consent of the data subject, Plamenig & Partner Group GmbH shall take reasonable measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to have the data subject intervene, to state his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

    If the data subject wishes to exercise rights in relation to automated decisions, he or she may at any time do so by contacting an employee of the controller.

  • i) Right to revoke a data protection consent

    Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulation to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

    If the data subject wishes to exercise his or her right to withdraw consent, he or she may at any time do so by contacting an employee of the controller.

14. data protection for applications and the application procedure

The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is in particular the case if an applicant submits the relevant application documents electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website, to the data controller. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted shall be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude a contract of employment with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, unless deletion conflicts with any other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz – AGG).

15. privacy policy on the use and enjoyment of Facebook

The data controller has integrated components of Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests, among other things.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc. 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If a data subject lives outside the United States or Canada, the data controller for processing personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_DE. As part of this technical process, Facebook obtains information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the person concerned is logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific page of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person visits our website and for the entire duration of the person’s stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the „Like“ button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and saves this personal data.

Facebook receives information through the Facebook component that the person concerned has visited our website whenever that person is logged into Facebook at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether the person clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transferred to Facebook in this way, he or she can prevent the transfer by logging out of his or her Facebook account before accessing our website.

The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains what settings Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the person concerned. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the person concerned to suppress data transmission to Facebook.

16. privacy policy regarding the use of Google AdSense

The data controller has integrated Google AdSense on this website. Google AdSense is an online service that enables the placement of advertisements on third-party sites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm which selects the advertisements displayed on third party sites in accordance with the content of the respective third party site. Google AdSense allows an interest-related targeting of the Internet user, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.

The operating company of the Google AdSense component is Alphabet Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of the Google AdSense component is to include advertisements on our website. Google AdSense places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. The setting of cookies enables Alphabet Inc. to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google AdSense component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google AdSense component to transmit data to Alphabet Inc. for the purpose of online advertising and billing commissions. As part of this technical process, Alphabet Inc. obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Alphabet Inc. uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently oppose the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A pixel-code is a miniature graphic that is embedded in web pages to enable log file recording and analysis, allowing statistical analysis to be performed. Based on the embedded pixel-code, Alphabet Inc. can recognize if and when a website was opened by an affected person and which links were clicked by the affected person.

17. privacy policy regarding the use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects data on, among other things, from which website a person concerned came to a website (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the costs and benefits of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The data controller uses the addition „_gat._anonymizeIp“ for the web analysis via Google Analytics.

Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may, under certain circumstances, pass on the personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently oppose the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Ferner, the person concerned has the opportunity to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and to the processing of such data by Google and to prevent such data being collected. For this purpose, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout . This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information on visits to Internet pages may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered a contradiction by Google. If the data subject’s information technology system is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or by another person within his/her sphere of control, the browser add-on can be reinstalled or reactivated.

25. legal basis for the processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations in which 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 person concerned is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations which are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same shall apply to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary in order 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 site were injured and his name, age, health insurance information or other vital information would have to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. 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 a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not predominate. Such processing operations 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 data subject is a customer of the data controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

26. legitimate interests in the processing which are pursued by the controller or a third party

Bases the processing of personal data on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business activities for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.

27. duration for which the personal data are stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After this period has expired, the corresponding data is routinely deleted unless it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

28. legal or contractual provisions concerning the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-availability

.

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may 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 personal data available to us which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the data subject.
The data subject must contact one of our employees before providing personal data. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of not providing the personal data.

29 Existence of automated decision making

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