We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of TanQuid GmbH & Co.KG. The use of the Internet pages of the TanQuid GmbH & Co.KG is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the TanQuid GmbH & Co.KG. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller, the TanQuid GmbH & Co.KG has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always be vulnerable to security risks, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
The responsible party within the meaning of the DS-GVO, other data protection laws applicable in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is:
TanQuid GmbH & Co.KG
The data protection officer of the controller is:
Dr. Wilma Heim
The data subject can also 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 data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
We process your personal data on the basis of the following legal basis:
The Consent Manager processes your personal data in order to record your decision to allow cookies and tools and to store it for a renewed visit to our website. This includes, among other things, the corresponding cookie with your (consent) decision as well as further usage data, e.g. IP address, domain name, time of request, server data (including data transmission types, server status, etc.), country, browser and operating system.
We process your personal data for the technical provision of our website on the basis of the following legal grounds:
The website of the TanQuid GmbH & Co.KG collects a series of general data and information with each call-up of the website by a data subject or automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. Collected can be:
(1) the browser types and versions used,
(2) the operating system used by the accessing system,
(3) the website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (so-called referrer),
(4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
(5) the date and time of any access to the Website,
(6) an Internet Protocol (IP) address,
(7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and
(8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the TanQuid GmbH & Co KG does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed (1) to deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) to 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 prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, the TanQuid GmbH & Co.KG analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
We process your personal data for the technical provision of our website on the basis of the following legal basis:
We store your personal data on our servers exclusively for the duration of your visit to our website. After you have left our website, your personal data will be deleted immediately.
Based on statutory provisions, the website of the TanQuid GmbH & Co.KG contains data that enable a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as 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 controller by e-mail or by using a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. No disclosure of this personal data to third parties will take place.
We process your personal data to respond to user inquiries on the basis of the following legal grounds:
We initially store your personal data for the duration of the response to your inquiry or for the duration of our business relationship. This also includes the initiation of a contract (pre-contractual legal relationship) and the processing of a contract.
In addition, we then store your personal data until the statute of limitations for any legal claims arising from the relationship with you has expired, in order to use it as evidence if necessary. The limitation period is usually between 12 and 36 months.
On our website we link for you to the location of our accommodation on Google Maps, a service of Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street,Dublin 4, Ireland (subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). Through the integration as a mere link, no data is transmitted to Google via our website. However, as soon as you click on the link, you will be redirected to Google’s web pages, where your data will be processed by Google. Google is solely responsible for this data processing.
The TanQuid GmbH & Co.KG offers users the possibility to leave individual comments on individual blog contributions on a blog, which is on the website of the controller. A blog is a portal maintained on a website, usually publicly viewable, in which one or more persons, called bloggers or web bloggers, can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blogposts. The blogposts can usually be commented on by third parties.
If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the data subject, information on the time of comment entry and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject will be stored and published. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the person concerned is also logged. This storage of the IP address is done for security reasons and in case the data subject violates the rights of third parties by posting a comment or posts illegal content. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the controller’s own interest, so that the controller could exculpate itself if necessary in the event of an infringement. There is no disclosure of this collected personal data to third parties, unless such disclosure is required by law or serves the legal defense of the controller.
The controller processes and stores personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.
If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
The controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on which website a data subject came to a website from (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 predominantly used for the optimization of a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is the
1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy
Mountain View, CA 94043-1351
The controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our Internet pages takes place 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 analyze the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission calculations.
By means of the cookie, personal information, for example the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject, is stored. Each time the data subject visits our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, 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 pass on this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.
https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and can be accessed at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.
We process your personal data on the basis of the following legal basis:
We store your personal data according to the minimum storage period of Google Analytics.
Some sections of our website contain links to third-party websites. These websites are subject to their own privacy policies. We are not responsible for their operation, including their data handling practices. If you send information to or through such third-party sites, you should review the privacy statements of those sites before sending them any information that can be identified to you.
Initially, only our employees receive knowledge of your personal data.
Your data will only be passed on to third parties if this is permitted or required by law or if you have given your consent. We also share your data to the extent necessary with the service providers we use to provide our services. In doing so, we limit the sharing of data to what is necessary to provide our services to you. In some cases, our service providers receive your data as order processors and are then strictly bound by our instructions when handling your data. In some cases, the recipients act independently with your data that we transmit to them.
Below we list the categories of recipients of your data:
If, incidentally, service providers in a third country are used and we are able to influence them, they are also obligated to comply with the level of data protection in Europe by agreeing to the EU standard contractual clauses in addition to written instructions. Alternatively, we transfer the data on the basis of Binding Corporate Rules or an adequacy decision of the EU Commission. For further information, please contact our data protection officer.
Otherwise, we do not transfer your personal data to countries outside the EU or the EEA or to international organizations.
We also process your personal data on our website in order to be able to assert our rights and enforce our legal claims. We also process your personal data in order to be able to defend ourselves against legal claims. Finally, we process your personal data to the extent necessary to prevent or prosecute criminal offences.
We process your personal data for this purpose on the basis of the following legal basis:
We store your personal data for the duration:
We would like to 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 on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that 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 the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will explain to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
In doing so, we process your personal data on the following legal basis:
We store your personal data in accordance with the relevant statutory retention periods, for example from the German Commercial Code (§§ 238, 257 para. 4 HGB) or from the German Fiscal Code (§ 147 para. 3, 4 AO). These retention periods can range from two to ten years. (e.g. from commercial law and tax law).
In the event that storage is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, we store your personal data until the decision on the conclusion of the contract and beyond that only for the duration of the conclusion of the contract or until the time of the limitation of any claims arising from the contractual relationship. The limitation period is usually between 12 and 36 months.
If personal data is processed by you, you are a “data subject” within the meaning of the GDPR.
You have the following rights vis-à-vis us as the data controller, which you can also assert vis-àvis the operator of the respective platform with regard to our social media presences. Please note that we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the operator. Our options are largely determined by the corporate policy of the respective operator. Your data subject rights are as follows:
Phone: 02 11/384 24-0
Your requests regarding the exercise of your rights should be addressed, if possible, in writing to the above address or directly to our Data Protection Officer.
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your data that is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests) or Art. 6 (1) e DSGVO (data processing in the public interest), if there are grounds for doing so that arise from your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 DSGVO.
If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
The objection can be made form-free and should preferably be addressed to:
TanQuid GmbH & Co.KG
