Data protection

ARTHUR KRÜGER GmbH takes the protection of your personal data very seriously and strictly complies with the regulations set out in data protection laws. Personal data shall only be collected on this website to an extent that is required in line with technical regulations. Under no circumstances shall the collected data be sold or transferred to third parties for other reasons. The following policy provides an overview of how we provide such protection and the type of collected data and the purpose of collecting data.

To safeguard the protection of your data, we have adopted technical, organisational and contractual measures that ensure that both we and our co-operation partners comply with the requirements set forth in data protection law. In view of the fact that changes can quickly arise here as a result of technical progress and new or amended legal requirements, you should not be content with reading this data protection declaration once only, but rather should read it through now and again. In the event of significant amendments to our data protection provisions, we shall inform you in good time.

For a better understanding, read in advance some of the key terms in accordance with Article 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR):

"Personal data" are any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter the "data subject"); an identifiable natural person is considered, 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. This includes information such as your name, e-mail address, postal address or telephone number, i.e. information that can be directly associated with your identity.

"Processing" is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transfer, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

"Pseudonymisation" is the processing of personal data in such a manner 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 to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

"Controller" is the 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 nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

"Processor" is a natural or legal person, church or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

"Third party" is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.

"Consent" of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

  • Purpose and legal bases of the data processing

Where we obtain your consent to the processing of personal data, the legal basis in that respect is Article 6, paragraph 1, Letter a, GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of personal data, which is necessary to execute a contract we have entered into and to adopt pre-contractual measures, is Article 6, paragraph 1, Letter b, GDPR. Where the processing of your personal data is required to honour a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6, paragraph 1, Letter c, GDPR applies as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a justified interest on our part or of a third party, Article 6, paragraph 1, letter f, GDPR shall be the legal basis, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of personal data.

Where we commission third parties with the task of processing personal data, this applies on the basis of an order data processing contract in accordance with Article 28 GDPR, which ensures that the processor subject to our instructions is subject to the same security standards as we are.

  • Period for which the data are stored

Your personal data are only stored as long as the respective purpose applies, you do not withdraw the respective consent and where statutory storage periods do not specify longer storage.

- the operating system used by the system gaining access,

- the web page from which a system gains access to our website,

- other similar data and information that are necessary in the case of attacks on our online systems to ward off such attacks. Where applicable to analyse such attacks, the aforementioned data are stored for seven days and, where these are no longer required for the purpose of providing evidence in the case of bringing legal action, such data are deleted or rendered anonymous. The legal basis for the processing is Article 6, paragraph 1, letter f, GDPR, because we have a justified interest in our website operating without disruptions. Your IP address is required during the connection to transfer the content of our website to your browser. The legal basis for the processing and storage of your IP address is a justified interest in accordance with Article 6, paragraph 1, letter f, GDPR, because our website content cannot be displayed without the forwarding of your address.

  • Transferring data to third parties

Your data are transferred to third parties exclusively in accordance with the statutory requirements, i.e. only if this is necessary within the meaning of Article 6, paragraph 1, letter b, GDPR, for the establishment, executing or amendment of a contractual relationship or as a result of our justified interest in the efficient and effective operating of our business enterprise within the meaning of Article 6, paragraph 1, letter f, GDPR. Use of services and the transfer of data to third parties and third party providers that do not have their registered office in the European Union or the European Economic Area only occur in so far as an appropriate data protection level, statutory permission or your consent apply. At the request of the relevant bodies, in an individual case we may furnish information about fundamental data provided this is necessary for the purposes of criminal prosecution, to ward off danger by the police authorities of the German federal states, to perform statutory tasks of the German Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution or to exercise intellectual property rights. In these cases, Article 6, paragraph 1, letter c, GDPR is the legal basis.
