Thank you for your interest in our website www.gierschmann.com (hereinafter referred to as the ‘website’). We respect your privacy, and take the protection of your personal data extremely seriously. The following privacy notice is intended to inform you in particular as to what categories of personal data are collected when you visit our website, the legal basis on which these data are processed, and what rights you may have.
The data controller within the meaning of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as the ‘GDPR’) is Gierschmann Legal, owned by Sibylle Gierschmann, Kattjahren 4, 22359 Hamburg, Germany, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personal data is any information that can be related to you. This includes for example your name, address, date of birth, email address, and telephone number. By contrast, non-personal data is information of a general nature by means of which your identity cannot be determined. This includes statistical data such as the number of users of a website, for example.
In general, you can visit the website, which is primarily of informational nature, without disclosing any information that identifies you.
When you visit the website, the website’s web server logs the following information for technical reasons: your IP address, the date and time you accessed the website, the pages you visited on the website, the website from which you linked to our site, your browser type (e.g. Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.), your operating system (e.g. Windows 10), as well as the domain name and the address of your Internet provider (e.g. Deutsche Telekom). These data are used to process and optimize transmission of the requested web pages.
We may process information collected by the web server in cooperation with your Internet provider and/or local authorities in the case of system misuse in order to identify the originator of such system misuse.
The legal basis for this processing is our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) in the securing of data transfer and the integrity of the website and our systems. We assume that the interests of our users are of a similar nature, since it is only possible to access our website and ensure its functionality in this manner.
In addition, personal data can be processed if you yourself make this kind of data available, e.g. if you send us an email. We process this kind of personal data to respond to and process your query.
The legal basis for processing data, that are transferred in the course of a contact request, is Art. 6 para.1 lit. f GDPR (our legitimate interests as the data controller).
Where the contact request is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para.1 lit. b GDPR (fulfillment of a contract).
We do not transfer your personal data to third parties, unless this is necessary for the fulfillment of your request, or where disclosure is permitted based on the relevant statutory provisions (e.g. for purposes of legal defense), or where you have given your consent.
We generally only store your personal data for the time necessary to fulfill the purpose for which they were collected or otherwise processed. A longer storage may take place, if required for compliance with a legal obligation according to the law of the Union or of an EU member state (e.g. to meet tax or commercial law retention obligations), or to the extent it is required for establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims.
Information processed for accessing the website is, as a rule, deleted once the current session has ended. Furthermore, it is possible that previously anonymized data are stored in log files for the purposes of website security. This kind of data is routinely deleted after a maximum of eight weeks.
Personal data made available to us in the context of contact requests are, as a rule, deleted once the issue has been resolved and the corresponding conversation is terminated.
You have the following rights as per the GDPR, depending on the circumstances of the actual case:
We implement appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect personal data processed by us, in particular against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.
