Some data processing procedures are only possible with your expressed consent. Revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal notification by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing up to the revocation remains unaffected.
As the person concerned, you have the right to appeal to the responsible supervisory authority in the event of a breach of data protection. The responsible supervisory authority concerning data protection issues is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based. The following link provides a list of data protection officers and their contact details: bfdi.bund.de
You have the right to have data that we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to yourself or third parties. It is provided in a machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another person responsible, this will only take place if it is technically feasible.
This data protection declaration applies to data, including personal data, collected about you by Drewes GmbH & Co. Investitions-KG. Personal data is data or a combination of individual data that can be used to identify you.
We process your personal data in compliance with the data protection laws of the Federal Republic of Germany and the European data protection regulations. Under no circumstances will we pass on your personal data to third parties for advertising or marketing purposes without your consent.
As a company, we use external service providers. As far as the processed data is personal content, appropriate contractual agreements and organisational measures have been taken following applicable law to ensure the security of your data.
The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. As far as on our sides personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) are raised, this takes place, as far as possible, always voluntarily.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. We try to protect your data against unauthorized access by third parties by taking precautions such as pseudonymization, data economy, observance of deletion deadlines, and taking into account the current state of technology. Despite these protective measures, however, we cannot completely rule out unlawful processing by third parties.
As part of our business relationship, you must provide the personal data required for the establishment and execution of the respective business relationship and the fulfilment of the associated contractual obligations or which we are legally obliged to collect.
Without this data, we will generally not be able to enter into the business relationship with you and to fulfil the resulting obligations. We process personal data that we receive from you in the course of our business relationship.
We receive the data directly from you, e.g. in the context of inquiries, orders, newsletter subscriptions, or through personal contacts with our employees. Additionally, we process - to the extent necessary for the provision of our services - your personal data which we may obtain from publicly accessible sources (e.g. commercial and association registers, press, Internet).
Specifically, we process the following data:
We process your personal data following the provisions of the European Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). In the following, we will inform you on which legal basis we process your data.
If you have given us your consent to process personal data for specific purposes, the respective consent is the legal basis for the processing stated there.
This applies in particular to:
You can revoke your consent at any time. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that you have given us before the validity of the DSGVO, i.e. before 25 May 2018. The revocation of consent is only valid for future processing.
The processing of data takes place for the fulfilment of a contract with you or for the execution of pre-contractual measures, which take place based on your inquiry. The purposes of data processing depend in detail on the concrete business relationship or the concrete assignment by you.
We are subject to various legal obligations, e.g. by the Commercial Code or the Industrial Code. The purposes of the processing include, inter alia
If necessary, we process your data beyond the actual performance of the contract to protect the legitimate interests of us or third parties. This is done for the following purposes, among others:
Our interest in the respective processing arises from the respective purposes and is otherwise economic (efficient performance of tasks, distribution, avoidance of legal risks). As far as the specific purpose permits, we process your data pseudonymised or anonymised.
When you visit our websites, our web servers temporarily store each access in a log file. The following data is recorded and stored until it is automatically deleted:
Beyond the cases mentioned above, these personal data will not be processed unless you expressly consent to further processing.
Your data will be passed on within Drewes GmbH & Co. Investitions-KG if this is necessary to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations or if the internal organisation requires the passing on (e.g. financial accounting and sales and marketing). Within our company, appropriate and legal requirements for the protection of your personal data have been met.
Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties (bodies outside Drewes GmbH & Co. Investitions-KG) unless you have given us your prior consent or a legal basis exists. A legal obligation is particularly considered for the following recipients:
Also, we employ various service providers (contractors according to Art. 28 DSGVO), which we contractually oblige according to the specifications of the DSGVO and whose compliance we monitor. These include companies in the areas of IT services, administrative services, tax services or sales and marketing. Contractors may only use personal data under our instructions and for a specific purpose.
Excluded from this is the passing on to service partners, such as parcel service providers or forwarding agencies, insofar as the transfer is necessary for order processing or delivery of the goods. The logistics service providers receive the data required for delivery for their own use. We limit ourselves to the transmission of the data necessary for delivery.
In accordance with the principle of data avoidance and data economy of the basic data protection regulation, we only collect personal data on our website if it is either necessary for the purpose you require, if we are obliged to do so under legal regulations or contract, if we have a legitimate interest, and/or if you provide it to us voluntarily.
When entering personal or business data (e.g. e-mail address, name, address), the disclosure of your data is expressly voluntary.
We process your contact, business, and business-relevant data based on legal regulations within the framework of the existing or imminent business relationship. By entering the data, you agree that the data entered will be collected, processed, or used for the legitimate purpose or for the purpose you have specified. Your stated data will only be processed and stored by us as long as the purpose requires and will be deleted after the purpose has been fulfilled or after the expiry of the respective storage periods. They are not collected, processed, or used for any other purpose. Your consent to the use of your data can be revoked at any time with effect for the future. If you object to the use of the data, we would like to point out that only limited use of our services may be possible.
The following are ways we can use the information:
If necessary, we process your personal data for the duration of the business relationship, this includes the initiation and processing of this as well as the storage due to legal retention periods.
If the data is no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual or legal obligations, it will be deleted. Unless there are legal obligations of the responsible person against a deletion. This can be the case for the following purposes, among others:
As a rule, children and persons under the age of 18 do not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. We do not request personal data from children and we assure that we do not knowingly collect personal data from children, use it in any way or disclose it to third parties without authorization.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, e-mail, or telephone, your details from the enquiry form, e-mail, or telephone call, including the contact data provided by you there, will be stored to process the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties (i.e. outside Drewes GmbH & Co. Investitions-KG) unless you have given us your prior consent. Excluded from this is the passing on to service partners, such as parcel service providers or forwarding agencies, insofar as the transfer is necessary for order processing or delivery of the goods. The logistics service providers receive the data required for delivery for their own use. We limit ourselves to the transmission of the data necessary for delivery.
Beyond that still different Dienstleister for the contract preparation and contract completion become active, like e.g. the Hosting Dienstleister for the Website. These companies work within the scope of so-called order processing for Drewes GmbH & Co. Investitions-KG and may only use the personal data per our instructions.
Furthermore, the transmission of data for order processing and/or delivery of goods or services or accounting and accounting purposes within Elektro-Test Lichtsysteme is transmitted and used. The data can be stored in the cloud application Invoiz of Buhl Data Service GmbH. No further transmission to third parties takes place without your consent. In all these cases, the data will be transmitted following the applicable national and European data protection regulations; the amount of data transmitted will be limited to the minimum necessary.
