Neuer Kamp 31
20359 Hamburg
Represented by: Christian Poelmann
Telephone: +49 (40) 5354 2496 (Mo – Fr 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.)
Controller shall mean the natural or legal person which alone or jointly with other determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e. g. names, email addresses or the like). 


Storage period
Unless stated differently in this privacy policy, your personal data will be stored until the purpose for which they were recorded or the purpose itself is no longer persued.  If you would like to claim a legitimate deletion request or revoke a consent for data processing, you data will be deleted as we do not have other legal valid reasons for storing your personal data (e. g. tax or commercial law retention periods); in the latter case the deletion takes place after ending of these reasons. 


Data transfer to the USA and other third countries
We use tools by companies based in the USA or other third countries not subject to data protection regulations. When these tools are active, your data may be transferred to third countries and be processed there. We point out that in these countries no data protection regulations comparable to those in the EU can be guaranteed.  For example, US companies are obliged to hand out personal data to safety authorities without the affected person being able to take legal proceedings. It thus cannot be ruled out that US authorities (e. g. secret services) process, evaluate and permanently safe your data stored on US servers. We do not have influence on these processing activities. 


Revoking your consent to data processing
Many data processing activities are only possible with your explicit consent. You are entitled to revoke your given consent at any time. The lawfulness of previous processing of personal data remains unaffected until the revocation.

If data processing takes places based on Art. 6, para 1 lit. e. or f. DSGVO, you have the right to rejection to the processing of personal data at any time, on legitimate grounds relation to your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on these regulations. The respective legal grounds on which processing is based, is included in this privacy policy. If you appeal, we will no longer process your respective personal data, unless we can prove legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh you interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the assertion, execution or defense of legal claims (right to object according to Art. 21, para 1 DSGVO). If your personal data is processed for direct advertisement, you have the right to rejection to the processing of your person data for this purpose; this also applies to the profiling, if it is associated with such direct advertisement. If you file for objection, your personal data will no longer be processed for the purpose of direct advertisement (right to object according to Art. 21, para 2 DSGVO).


Right of appeal with the responsible regulation authority
In case of violations against the DSGVO, affected persons have the right to appeal with the regulation authority, especially in the member state of their primary residence, workplace or the place of the assumed violation. The right of appeal exists regardless of other administrative or legal provisions. 


Right to data portability
Data that we automatically process based on your consent or the fulfilment of a contract shall be issued to yourself or a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you ask for the direct transfer of data to another person responsible, this may only take place if it technically possible.

– if the processing of your personal data is/was unlawfully, you may ask for limitation instead of deletion of processing.
– if we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for execution, defense or assertion of legal claims, you are entitled to ask for limitation instead of deletion of processing of your personal data.
– if you have filed for objection according to Art. 21. Para 1 DSGVO, a careful consideration of your and our interests has to be made. Until it is fixed whose interests prevail, you have the right to ask for the limitation of processing of your personal data. 

If you have limited the processing of your personal data, this data – apart from its storage – may only be processed with your consent or for assertion, execution or defense of legal claims, or for protection of rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest to the European Union or another member state.
