The person responsible within the meaning of the Basic Data Protection Regulation and other national data protection laws of the member states as well as other provisions of data protection law is:

III. General information on data processing

1. Scope of processing of personal data

We collect and use the personal data of our users only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website including our content and services. The collection and use of personal data of our users takes place regularly and only with their consent. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for practical reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as a legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

3. Data deletion and storage duration

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. In addition, such storage may take place if provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. The data shall also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless it is necessary for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.



IV. Provision of the website and creation of log files

1. Description and scope 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:

  1. Information about the browser type and the version used
  2. The user's operating system
  3. The user's Internet Service Provider
  4. The IP address of the user
  5. Date and time of access
  6. Websites from which the user's system accesses our website
  7. Websites accessed by the user's system through our website

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. Storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

3. Purpose of the data processing

The 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 IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The data is stored in log files in order to ensure the functionality of the website. The data is also used to optimise 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.

These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of data collection for the provision of the website, this is the case when the session in question has ended.

If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after no more than seven days. An additional storage 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.

5. Possibility of opposition and removal

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.



V. Use of cookies

1. Description and scope of data processing

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on the user's computer system. When a user visits a website, a cookie may be stored on the user's operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string of characters that enables the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is called up again.

We use functional cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the calling browser can be identified even after a page change.

When calling up our website, the user is informed about the use of cookies for analysis purposes and their consent to the processing of the personal data used in this combination is obtained. In this context there is also a reference to this data protection declaration.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR if the user has given their consent.

3. Purpose of the data processing

In these purposes also our legitimate interest lies in the processing of personal data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

4. Duration of storage, possibility of objection and removal

Cookies are stored on the user's computer and transmitted to our site by the user. Therefore, you as a user also have full control over the use of cookies. You can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your Internet browser. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it is possible that not all functions of the website can be used to the full extent.



VI. Newsletter

1. Description and scope of data processing

You can subscribe to a free newsletter on our website. The subscription of the newsletter takes place via an e-mail from the prospective customer to the address: marketing@pierau-planung.de

In addition, the following data is collected during registration:

  • Salutation and title
  • First name and surname
  • Company
  • Position
  • Preferred language
  • Email Address
  • In the case of a requested shipment by post: address, postal code, city and country.

Your consent will be obtained for the processing of your data during the registration process and reference will be made to this data protection declaration.

No data will be passed on to third parties in connection with data processing for the dispatch of newsletters. The data will be used exclusively for the dispatch of the newsletter.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of user’s data after registration for the newsletter is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR if the user has given their consent.

3. Purpose of the data processing

The collection of the user's e-mail address serves to deliver the newsletter.

The collection of other personal data as part of the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. The user's e-mail address will therefore be stored as long as the newsletter subscription is active.

The other personal data collected in the course of the registration process is usually deleted after a period of seven days.

5. Possibility of opposition and removal

Subscription to the newsletter may be terminated at any time by the user concerned. For this purpose, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter.

This also allows for the consent to the storage of personal data that was collected during the registration process to be revoked.



VII. E-mail contact

1. Description and scope of data processing

Contact can be established via the e-mail addresses provided. In this case, the personal data of the user transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.

In this context, it does not pass on the data to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.

The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR if the user has given their consent.

The legal basis for processing the data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If the purpose of the e-mail contact is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. With regard to the personal data sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.

5. Possibility of opposition and removal

The user has the possibility to revoke their consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, they can object to the storage of their personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.

To revoke your consent to the use of your personal data for processing, please send an e-mail todatenschutz@pierau-planung.de.

In this case, all personal data stored in the course of establishing contact will be deleted.



VIII. Rights of the data subject

If your personal data is processed, you are the data subject within the context of the GDPR and you are entitled to the following rights in relation to the person responsible:

1. Right to information

  2. the categories of personal data processed;
  3. the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal information about you has been or will be disclosed;

  6. the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
  7. all available information on the origin of the data, if the personal data is not collected from the data subject;
  8. the existence of automated decision-making including profiling in accordance with Article 22 para. 1 and para. 4 GDPR and - at least in these cases - meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing on the data subject.

You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you will be transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR in connection with the transfer.

2. Right to rectification

You have the right to have your personal data corrected and/or completed by the person responsible if the personal data processed concerning you is inaccurate or incomplete. The person responsible must carry out the rectification immediately.

3. Right to restrict processing

Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of your personal data be restricted:

  1. for a period of time which allows the person responsible to verify the accuracy of the personal data if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you;
  2. if the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data, requesting instead that use of the personal data be restricted;
  3. the person responsible no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or
  4. if you have lodged an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether the justified reasons of the person responsible outweigh your reasons.

Where the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may not be processed, with the exception of their storage, without your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.

If the processing restriction has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the person responsible before the restriction is lifted.

4. Right to deletion

a) Duty to delete

You may request that the person responsible deletes the personal data concerning you immediately and the person responsible is obliged to delete this data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:

  1. The personal data concerning you is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
  2. You revoke your consent on which the processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR was based and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

b) Information to third parties

If the person responsible has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to delete it in accordance with Art. 17 para. 1 GDPR, they shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account available technology and implementation costs, to inform the persons responsible for data processing who process the personal data that you, as the person concerned, have requested them to delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data.

c) Exceptions

  1. to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
  2. to fulfill a legal obligation required by the law of the European Union or of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject, or to carry out a task of public interest or in the exercise of public authority delegated to the person responsible;
  3. for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i and Art. 9 para. 3 GDPR;
  4. for archival purposes of public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes acc. Article 89 para. 1 GDPR, to the extent that the law referred to in subparagraph a) is likely to render impossible or seriously affect the achievement of the objectives of that processing, or
  5. to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

The right to deletion does not exist if the processing is necessary.

5. Right to information

If you have exercised your right to rectify, delete or restrict the processing of your personal data against the person responsible, the latter is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you has been disclosed of such rectification, deletion or restriction, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed about these recipients by the person responsible.

6. Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, that you have provided to the responsible person, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to communicate this data to another person responsible without being hindered by the person responsible to whom the personal data was provided, provided that

  1. the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR and
  2. processing is carried out using automated procedures.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transmitted directly by one responsible person to another responsible person, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to data transfer does not apply to the 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 person responsible.

7. Right to object

You have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The person responsible will no longer process the personal data concerning you unless they can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is intended to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If the personal data relating to you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct mail.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You have the possibility to exercise your right of objection in relation to the use of Information Society services - notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC - 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 your consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until you revoke it.

9. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to any decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has any legal effect on you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision

  1. is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the person responsible,
  2. is authorised by legislation of the European Union or of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject and contains adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
  3. is with your explicit consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.

In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the person responsible shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right of the person responsible to obtain the intervention of a person, to present his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

10. Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of presumed infringement, if you consider that the processing of your personal data is in breach of the GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint was submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
