We take the protection of your personal data very seriously, which is why we always handle your personal data according to statutory data protection provisions. We have appointed an expert and reliable external data protection officer. The external data protection officer is provided by UIMC Dr. Voßbein GmbH & Co. KG.
In the following, we will inform you on how your personal data are processed.
Collection and Processing of Personal Data
The Controller, under Art. 4 (7) of the GDPR, is Babtec Informationssysteme GmbH, Clausenstraße 21, 42285 Wuppertal, Germany (see our Imprint).
If you make contact with us, the data that you share with us (your address, e-mail address, if required your name and telephone number) will be saved by us in order to answer your queries. In the event that you have any questions, we offer you the option of contacting us via a form that is provided on our Internet presence. Here, certain data have been labeled “mandatory.” These data are necessary to allocate and answer the request. Any other data can be provided voluntarily. Data for the purpose of contacting us is processed in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a of the GDPR, based on your voluntary consent. We will erase the data that is procured in this context once it is no longer necessary to retain this data, or we will restrict its processing if there are no legal obligations to save this data.
If we need to mandate another service provider to fulfill individual functions of our offer and are obliged to forward your personal data to third parties at this juncture, we will provide you with detailed information on the relevant processes. Here, we will also state the set criteria for the duration that the data will be stored by the mandated third party.
If you wish to conclude a contract with us, you must state the personal data that we require to process your order. This is necessary in order to conclude the contract. We will process the data that you have provided in order to execute your order. To this end, we may forward your payment data to our affiliated bank. Art. 6 (1) sentence 1(b) of the GDPR forms the legal basis for this. This also applies for measures which are required in order to execute pre-contractual measures.
If it is necessary to process personal data in order to fulfill a legal obligation that our company is subject to, then this shall occur within the scope of Art. 6 (1) sentence 1(c) of the GDPR.
If processing is necessary for the purposes of protecting our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party and if your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not override these legitimate interests, then Art. 6 (1) sentence 1(f) of the GDPR shall form the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interests of our company are, in principle, in rendering the services due and/or constant optimization of our services and presentations.
Due to trade and fiscal provisions, we are obligated to store your address, payment and order data in accordance with the statutory regulations. However, we will place limitations on processing after two years have lapsed. This means that your data will only be used in order to comply with legal obligations.
If you provide your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter. The newsletter informs you of our offers. The goods and services advertised are stated in the consent form.
We use the double opt-in process for subscription to our newsletter. This means that once that you have registered, we will send an e-mail to the stated e-mail address requesting confirmation that you wish to have the newsletter delivered. If you do not confirm your registration within 48 hours, your information will be deleted. Furthermore, we will save the IP addresses used and times for your registration and confirmation. The objective of this procedure is to prove that you have registered and, if necessary, to be able to explain any abuse of your personal data.
Only your e-mail address is a mandatory requirement for sending the newsletter. After you have confirmed this, we will save your e-mail address and any other information that you have voluntarily provided for the purposes of sending the newsletter to you. Art. 6 (1) sentence 1(a) of the GDPR forms the legal basis for this.
Your consent to the sending of the newsletter may be revoked and you may unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. You can revoke your consent by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter e-mail, by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by sending a message to the contact details stated in the Imprint.

Transfer of Data

We will only transfer your personal data to third parties if this is legally permitted (for example based on Art. 6 of the GDPR) and/or necessary.
