Security and protection of your personal data

We consider it our primary responsibility to maintain the confidentiality of the personal data you provide to us and to protect it from unauthorized access. Therefore, we use the utmost care and state-of-the-art security standards to ensure maximum protection of your personal data.

As a company under private law, we are subject to the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the regulations of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that the regulations on data protection are observed both by us and by our external service providers.

Definitions

The legislator requires that personal data are processed in a lawful manner, in good faith and in a way that is comprehensible to the data subject (“lawfulness, processing in good faith, transparency”). To ensure this, we inform you about the individual legal definitions, which are also used in this privacy policy:

Personal data

“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Processing

“Processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

Restriction of processing

“Restriction of processing” means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

Profiling

“Profiling” means any automated processing of personal data which consists in using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location.

Pseudonymisation

“Pseudonymisation” means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

File system

“File system” means any structured collection of personal data accessible according to specified criteria, whether such collection is maintained centrally, decentrally, or on a functional or geographical basis.

Responsible

“controller’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

Processor

“Processor” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the Controller.

Receiver

“‘recipient’ means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients and the processing of such data by those authorities shall be carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection rules, in accordance with the purposes of the processing.

Third party

“Third party” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body, other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.

Consent

Consent” of the data subject means any freely given specific, informed and unambiguous indication of his or her wishes in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to personal data relating to him or her being processed.

Lawfulness of the processing

The processing of personal data is only lawful if there is a legal basis for the processing. Legal basis for the processing can be according to Article 6 para 1 lit. a – f GDPR in particular:
The data subject has given his/her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him/her for one or more specific purposes;
processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the data subject’s request;
processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject;
processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person;
processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests of the controller or of a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.

You can contact us at any time to exercise your right of withdrawal.

(2) Right of confirmation

You have the right to request confirmation from the controller as to whether we are processing personal data relating to you. You can request confirmation at any time using the contact details above.

If personal data are processed, you can request information about these personal data and about the following information at any time:

the purposes of processing;

the categories of personal data processed;

the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular in the case of recipients in third countries or international organisations;

the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject.

If personal data are transferred to a third country or to an international organisation, you have the right to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR in connection with the transfer. We will provide a copy of the personal data that is the subject of the processing. For any further copies you request person, we may charge a reasonable fee based on the administrative costs. If you make the request electronically, the information must be provided in a commonly used electronic format unless it states otherwise. The right to receive a copy under paragraph 3 shall not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

(4) Right of rectification

You have the right to request that we correct any inaccurate personal data relating to you without undue delay. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration.

(5) Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”)

You have the right to request the controller to delete personal data concerning you without undue delay and we are obliged to delete personal data without undue delay if one of the following reasons applies:

The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.

The personal data have been processed unlawfully.

The deletion of the personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.

The personal data have been collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Article 8(1) of the GDPR.

If the controller has made the personal data public and is obliged to erase it pursuant to paragraph 1, it shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, having regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform data controllers which process the personal data that a data subject has requested that they erase all links to or copies or replications of that personal data.

The right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”) does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary:

  • to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
  • 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;
  • for reasons of public interest in the field of public health, in accordance with Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) of the GDPR;
  • for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes, or statistical purposes as referred to in Article 89(1) of the GDPR, where the right referred to in paragraph 1 is likely to make impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

(6) Right to restrict processing

You have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data if one of the following conditions is met:

  • the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data, the processing is unlawful and the data subject objects to the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of the use of the personal data;
  • the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs them for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or the data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR, as long as it is not yet established whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject. Where processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, such personal data shall be processed, apart from being stored, only with the consent of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of substantial public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

In order to exercise the right to restrict the processing, the data subject may at any time contact us using the contact details provided above.

(7) Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and you have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that:

  • the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR; and the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures. When exercising the right to data portability in accordance with paragraph 1, you have the right to have the personal data transferred directly from one controller to another controller where this is technically feasible. The exercise of the right to data portability is without prejudice to the right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”). This right shall not apply to processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

(8) 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 carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR, including any profiling based on those provisions. The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for 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 will no longer be processed for these purposes.

In the context of the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes as referred to in Article 89(1), unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

You can exercise the right of objection at any time by contacting the respective person responsible.

(9) Automated decisions 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 concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision:

is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, is permitted by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, and that law contains suitable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or has the data subject’s explicit consent.

The controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, which shall include, 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 contest the decision.

The data subject may exercise this right at any time by contacting the relevant controller.

(10) Right to complain to a supervisory authority

They shall also have the right, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if the data subject considers that the processing of personal data relating to them infringes this Regulation.

(11) Right to an effective judicial remedy

Without prejudice to any available administrative or non-judicial remedy, including the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority pursuant to Article 77 GDPR, they shall have the right to an effective judicial remedy if they consider that their rights under this Regulation have been infringed as a result of the processing of their personal data not in compliance with this Regulation.

Google Maps

A plugin to the Google Maps service is implemented in the platform, which enables the user to search for offers near his actual or any physical location or to display them graphically. This service is operated by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, California 94043, USA. AESUB has no influence on the function and the collection and use of personal data in connection with the use of this service. Each time you call up a website on our platform that is provided with such a plugin, the plugin causes the browser you are using to load the map service from the Google server. Your browser establishes a direct connection with Google’s servers for this purpose. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Google directly to your browser and integrated by it into the platform. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data that Google collects with the help of this plugin. We therefore inform you according to the information available to us. When the platform is called up for the first time, an attempt is first made to determine the actual physical location of the user’s computer. The determination of the location is done automatically by the service integrated into the platform (Google Maps). Depending on the type of browser/app/device used, the user has various options outside the platform to allow automatic location determination for a certain period of time (e.g. by confirming a corresponding consent button when visiting the platform for the first time) or to prohibit it entirely. AESUB has no influence on the existence or functioning of this functionality. If the corresponding permission has not been granted, the user can specify any location, the radius of which is then graphically displayed by the map service in the corresponding window of the platform. If the user does not specify a location, a default location (e.g. Cologne) is determined. If permission is granted for the automatic determination of the actual location of the user’s computer, the user’s browser automatically saves this permission for future visits to the platform, so that a renewed request for permission to collect the actual location data does not occur for a subsequent visit. The corresponding setting can be changed by the user in the user browser and the permission granted can thus be revoked. AESUB has no influence on this. To use the map service, according to our current knowledge, the web pages visited on our website, the respective location data (if permission has been granted, also the actual location data of the user’s computer) and the IP address of the user’s computer are transmitted to Google and used to display the user’s search. Google’s data protection information on Google Maps can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/policies/privacy/. There you will also find corresponding information about the purpose and scope of the data collection as well as information about the further processing and use of the data by Google.
