II Data protection officer of the data controller:
If you have any questions regarding the content of the data protection declaration or data protection at ekom gmbh, please do not hesitate to contact us.
III General information on data processing
1 Scope of the processing of personal data
As a matter of principle, we process personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users is regularly carried out only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where obtaining prior consent is not possible for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.
2 Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain consent from the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Art. 6 (1) (d) DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
3 Data deletion and storage period
The personal data of the data subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
4 Data transmission
Data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) may have security gaps. We as a provider cannot completely protect the transmission of data via the Internet, as this may be beyond our access. For this reason, you are free to transmit your personal data to us by other means of communication if necessary (e.g. by telephone or post).
IV Provision of the website and creation of log files
1 Description of data processing
Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.
The following data is collected:
• Information about the browser (type and version) used to access the website
• The user's operating system
• The user's Internet service provider
• The IP address of the user
• Date and time of access
• Websites from which the user's system accesses our website
• Websites that are accessed by the user's system via our website
The data mentioned under point 1 are also stored in the log files of our system.
A storage of these data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.
3 Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.
4 Purpose of the processing of data
The purpose of providing the website is to provide information about the activities of ekom gmbh.
4.1 Use of the website for information
Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website.
In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
5 Duration of storage
5.1 Use of the website for information Personal data is only stored for the period necessary to fulfill the purpose of the processing (data economy).
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.
6 Right of objection
6.1 Use of the website for information The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website.
Therefore, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.
6.2 Use of the website for checking and entering contract data In principle, the use of the website is possible without providing personal data. Should personal data be collected as described above, we assure you that your data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent (unless the disclosure is necessary for the purposes of law enforcement, safeguarding public order or protecting our systems).

2 Subject of data storage and transmission by cookies.
The following data is stored and transmitted in the cookies:
• Language settings
• Log-in information
• Frequency of page views
• Use of website functions
• Search terms entered
The user data collected by means of cookies is pseudonymized by technical precautions. Therefore, an assignment of the data to the calling user is no longer possible. The data is not stored together with other personal data of the users.
4 Deactivation, restriction and deletion of cookies
If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all the functions of the website in full.
6 Legal basis
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
VII Rights of the data subject
If personal data is processed by you, you are a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and you are entitled to the following rights against the controller:
1 Right of access
You may request confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed by us. If such processing is taking place, you may request information from the controller about the following:
1.1 the purposes for which the personal data are processed;
1.2 the categories of personal data which are processed;
1.3 the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been or will be disclosed;
1.4 the planned duration of the storage of the personal data relating to you or, if specific information on this is not possible, criteria for determining the storage period;
1.5 the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of the personal data concerning you, a right to restriction of processing by the controller or a right to object to such processing;
1.6 the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
1.7 any available information on the origin of the data, if the personal data are not collected from the data subject;
1.8 the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.
You have the right to request information about whether the personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organization. In this context, you may request to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Art. 46 DSGVO in connection with the transfer.
2 Right to rectification
You have a right to rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the controller if the personal data processed concerning you are inaccurate or incomplete. The controller shall carry out the rectification without undue delay.
3 Right to restriction of processing
Under the following conditions, you may request the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning you:
3.1 you contest the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
3.2 the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of the personal data;
3.3 the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims; or
3.4 if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) DSGVO and it has not yet been determined whether the controller's legitimate grounds override your grounds.
If the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, such data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a Member State.
If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.
4 Right to deletion
4.1 Obligation to delete
You may request the controller to erase the personal data concerning you without undue delay, and the controller is obliged to erase such data without undue delay, if one of the following reasons applies:
4.1.1 The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
4.1.2 You revoke your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a or Art. 9 (2) a DSGVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
4.1.3 You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (2) DSGVO.
4.1.4 The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.
4.1.5 The erasure of the personal data concerning you is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
4.1.6 The personal data concerning you was collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8(1) DSGVO.
4.2 Information to third parties
If the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to erase it in accordance with Article 17(1) of the GDPR, it shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, having regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform data controllers that process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested them to erase all links to, or copies or replications of, that personal data.
The right to erasure does not exist to the extent that the processing is necessary
4.3.1 to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
4.3.2 for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
4.3.3 for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) of the GDPR;
4.3.4 for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89(1) DSGVO, insofar as the right referred to in section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing; or
4.3.5 for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
5 Right to information
If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the controller, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have the right to be informed about these recipients by the data controller.
6 Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that
6.1 the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and
6.2 the processing is carried out with the help of automated procedures.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to obtain that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this. The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
7 Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it 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.
If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purposes of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to processing of the personal data concerning you for the purposes of such marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.
If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.
You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society services - notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC - to exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
8 Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law.
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of the consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
9 Automated decision in individual cases including profiling.
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - which produces legal effects vis-à-vis you or similarly significantly affects you. This shall not apply if the decision
9.1 is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,
9.2 is permissible on the basis of legal provisions of the Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject and these legal provisions contain appropriate measures to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, or
9.3 is made with your express consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9(1) of the GDPR, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (g) of the GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
10 Right to complain to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, workplace or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
