Data Protection

Privacy policy

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH. This data protection declaration applies both to personal data collected directly by EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH and to personal data collected via the website of EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH. The use of the Internet pages of the EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the EU Data Protection Regulation, and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

As the controller, the EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed. Nevertheless, data transmissions can always be subject to security vulnerabilities, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer of the controller.

d) Right to erasure ("right to be forgotten").

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to obtain from the controller the erasure without delay of personal data concerning him or her, where one of the following grounds applies and to the extent that processing is no longer necessary:

- The personal data were collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
- The data subject revokes his or her consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) DSGVO or Art. 9(2)(a) DSGVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
- The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (2) DSGVO.

The Data Protection Officer of the EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH shall arrange for the erasure request to be complied with immediately.

The Data Protection Officer of the EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH will arrange the necessary in individual cases.

e) Right to restriction of processing

Each data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:

- The processing is unlawful, 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 the processing, but the data subject needs it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
- The data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) of the GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by the EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH, he or she may, at any time, contact the Data Protection Officer of the controller. The Data Protection Officer of the EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH will arrange the restriction of the processing.

f) Right to data portability

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which have been provided by the data subject to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data were provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR 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, unless the 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.

Furthermore, when exercising the right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller where technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals.

g) Right to object

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation-maker, to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DSGVO. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If the EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data processed for such marketing. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH to the processing for direct marketing purposes, EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by the EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the Data Protection Act (DSGVO), unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact the Data Protection Officer of the EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH or another employee. The data subject is also free, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise his or her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

h) Automated decisions in individual cases, including profiling.

Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, unless the decision is

- is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or
- is permitted by Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, and that legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject; or
- is carried out with the express consent of the data subject.

If the decision is

- is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or
- It takes place with the explicit consent of the data subject,

EGC Entwicklungsgesellschaft Cottbus mbH shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, which include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a data subject on the part of the responsible person, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated decisions, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer of the controller.

i) Right to withdraw consent under data protection law.

Every data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation-maker, to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw consent, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer of the controller.

Legal basis of processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DSGVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DSGVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DSGVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, sentence 2 of the GDPR) and legitimate interests in the processing are pursued by the controller or a third party.

Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party.

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DSGVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

Duration for which the personal data are stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the performance of the contract or the initiation of the contract.

Legal or contractual requirements for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision.

We inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.

Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
