3.  General notes and mandatory information

Privacy

The operators of these sites take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data is data that can be used to personally identify you. This privacy policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating via e-mail) may have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Note on the responsible body

The responsible body for data processing on this website is:

DEON GmbH & Co. KG
Ella-Kay-Str. 22C
10405 Berlin

Phone: +49 30 403667713

E-Mail: info@deon.de

The controller is the natural or legal person who decides alone or jointly with others on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Storage period

Unless a more specific storage period has been specified within this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for the data processing is no longer established. If you make a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to the processing of data, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible grounds for storing your personal data (e.g. tax or commercial retention periods); in the latter case, the deletion shall take place after the abolition of these grounds.

Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries

Our website includes, among other things, tools from companies based in the United States or other non-secure third countries that are not covered by data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these third countries. We would like to point out that no level of data protection comparable to the EU can be guaranteed in these countries.

For example, U.S. companies are required to disclose personal information to security agencies without you, as a person concerned, being able to take legal action against it. It cannot therefore be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence agencies) process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The right to appeal is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically processed on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done if it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as a site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser is

“http://” to “https://” and at the lock icon in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, deletion and rectification

Within the scope of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if necessary, a right to rectification or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time for further questions regarding personal data.

Right to restrict processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:

If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the examination, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If the processing of your personal data has been/happens unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.

If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.

If you have filed an objection under Article 21(1) GDPR, a balance must be made between your interests and our interests. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may be processed, except for its storage, only with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process (necessary cookies) or to provide certain functions (functional cookies) or to optimize the website (cookies to measure the web audience) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If consent to the storage of cookies has been requested, the storage of the cookies in question is carried out exclusively on the basis of this consent (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR). Consent can be revoked at any time.
