Privacy Policy & Privacy Notice

Explanation

A privacy notice (or sometimes privacy policy) is required to be available wherever data collection takes place. (Art 13 GDPR)

The Data Controller is the party who defines the ‘means and purpose’ of data collection, in this case us.

 

 

We have chosen not to collect Personal Data for our website analytics, nor store any cookies on your device and thereby give you the most privacy friendly way of visiting our website. As a consultancy company we don’t need this level of insight, and we don’t need to ask for your consent to set a cookie or collect your Personal Data when you first visit our website.

We collect Personal Data on forms in different places throughout our website, on the phone or during an in-person conversation. When you provide this data you will have to agree to this privacy policy. We process this data so we can help you discover your GDPR situation, and to be able to communicate and send you an offer for working with us.

 

 

 

We also need to collect and keep some of the data in order to comply with legal requirements. For example, trade invoices need to be kept for 10 years in Germany, and may contain your name or email.

 

 

 

When you send us an inquiry on our website, you have the option to additionally opt-in to marketing communication via email. If you tick this option (which is entirely voluntarily), we will keep your Name and Email address for this purpose until you revoke this consent or unsubscribe.

 

 

 

To keep our servers and systems secure, we keep log files for a very short amount of time. As an IP address constitutes personal data, this is part of this privacy policy as well.

You are generally not required to provide Personal Data, but some of the elements (like IP address) are collected automatically. If you want to get in touch with us, we will need some of your Personal Data in order to facilitate communication.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Under the GDPR, you have a number of Subject’s Rights, such as:

  • The right to information
  • The right to rectification
  • The right to erasure (“to be forgotten”)
  • The right to access your information
  • The right to data portability
  • The right to restriction of processing
  • The right to object

In this section we inform you how you can use these rights.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are unsatisfied about how we handle your data, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible Data Protection Authority.

 

 

 

 

 

As processing of data of children under the age of 16 (may be different in different countries in the EU) comes with additional requirements, and our services are not intended for those under 16 anyway, we exclude the use of this website for minors.

We also take no responsibility for the data protection on other websites we link to.
