1. What is personal data?

The concept of personal data is defined in the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz and in the EU GDPR. Accordingly, these are individual details about personal or material circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, your civil name, your address, your telephone number or your date of birth.

2. Scope of anonymous data collection and data processing

Unless otherwise stated in the following sections, no personal data is collected, processed or used when using our websites. However, we find out through the use of analysis and tracking tools certain technical information based on the data transmitted by your browser (for example, browser type/version, operating system used, our visited websites including length of stay, previously visited website). We only evaluate this information for statistical purposes.

3. 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 EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a part of, art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out precontractual actions.

Insofar as processing of personal data is required to fulfill a legal obligation that is subject to our company, 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 require the processing of personal data, art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the former interest, art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

4. Use of cookies

The websites of Westphalia DataLab GmbH use cookies. Cookies are data stored by the Internet browser on the user's computer system. The cookies can be transmitted to a page when they are accessed and thus allow an assignment of the user. Cookies help to simplify the use of websites for users. For these purposes, our legitimate interest is in the processing of personal data pursuant to art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. In addition, we use cookies on our website that allow an analysis of users' browsing behavior:

(1) Entered search terms

(2) Frequency of page views

(3) Use of Website Features

It is always possible to turn off the setting of cookies by changing the option in the Internet browser. The Cookies set can be deleted. It should be noted that disabling cookies may not fully exploit all features of our website. The data of the users collected in this way are pseudonymized by technical precautions. Therefore, an assignment of the data to the calling user is no longer possible. The data will not be stored together with other personal data of the users.

When accessing our website, users are informed by an information banner about the use of cookies for analysis purposes and referred to this privacy policy. In this context, there is also an indication of how the storage of cookies in the browser settings can be prevented.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes is provided after the user has consented to this art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

5. Creation of log files

Each time the website is accessed, the Westphalia DataLab GmbH records data and information through an automated system. These are stored in the log files of the server. The data is also stored in the log files of our system. A storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.

The following data can be collected here:

(1) Information about the browser type and version used

(2) The operating system of the user

(3) The Internet service provider of the user

(4) The IP address of the user

(5) Date and time of access

(6) Websites from which the system of the user reaches our website (referrer)

(7) Web pages accessed by the user's system through our website

6. Newsletter

If the newsletter of our company has been subscribed, the data will be transmitted in the respective input mask to the controller. The registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called closed-loop authentication. That means, after the registration, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with external e-mail addresses.

When registering for the newsletter, the IP address of the user and the date and time of registration are saved. This is to prevent misuse of the service or the e-mail address of the person concerned. A transfer of the data to third parties does not take place. An exception exists if there is a legal obligation to disclose.

The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter. Subscription to the newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. Similarly, the consent to the storage of personal data can be canceled at any time. For this purpose, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter.

The legal basis for processing the data after the user has registered for the newsletter passes after the user has given his consent, art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The legal basis for sending the newsletter as a result of the sale of goods or services is § 7 sect. 3 UWG.

6.1 Sendinblue

This website uses Sendinblue to send out newsletters. The provider is Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Straße 126, 10179 Berlin, Germany. Sendinblue is a service that can be used to organize and analyze the sending of newsletters, among other things. The data you enter to subscribe to the newsletter is stored on Sendinblue's servers in Germany.

If you do not wish to receive analysis from Sendinblue, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. To do this, we provide a link in each newsletter message. You can also unsubscribe directly on the website.

Legal basis

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the data processing operations already performed remains unaffected by the revocation.

Storage period

The data you provide us with for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected.

After you have been removed from the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address may be stored in a blacklist by us or the newsletter service provider to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in compliance with the legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The storage in the blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.

For further details please refer to the Sendinblue Privacy Policy at: https://de.sendinblue.com/datenschutz-uebersicht/

Data analysis by Sendinblue

Sendinblue allows us to analyze our newsletter campaigns. For example, we can see if a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on, if any. This allows us to see which links are clicked on most often.

We can also see whether certain previously defined actions were performed after opening/clicking (conversion rate). For example, we can see whether you have made a purchase after clicking on the newsletter.

Sendinblue also allows us to cluster newsletter recipients into different categories. This allows us to classify newsletter recipients by age, gender or location, for example. This makes it easier to tailor the newsletter to the relevant target groups.

For more information about Sendinblue's features, please follow the link below: https://de.sendinblue.com/newsletter-software/

Conclusion of a contract for order processing

We have an agreement with Sendinblue in which we commit Sendinblue to protect our customers' information and not to share it with third parties.

7. Ways to contact

On the websites of Westphalia DataLab GmbH there is a contact form that can be used for electronic contact. Alternatively, contact via the provided e-mail address is possible. If the data subject contacts the controller through one of these channels, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be automatically stored. The storage serves solely for purposes of processing or contacting the person concerned. A transfer of data to third parties does not take place. Legal basis for the processing of the data is in the presence of the consent of the user art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

The legal basis for the processing of the data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If the e-mail contact aims to conclude a contract, then 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 for the purpose of its collection. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been finally clarified.

8. Comment function

If the user can leave comments in the blog, the user name previously chosen by the website visitor is stored in addition to the information you entered via the input mask. This serves the security of Westphalia DataLab GmbH, as the provider can be prosecuted for illegal content on its website, even if such content is brought to the site by comments from third parties.

9. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller will only process and store personal data of the data subject for as long as necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage. 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 for processing is subject.

13. Data transmission in third countries

The controller may transfer personal data to a third country. In principle, the controller may provide various appropriate safeguards to ensure that an adequate level of protection is provided for the processing operations. It is possible to transfer data transfers on the basis of an adequacy finding, internal data protection rules, approved codes of conduct, standard data protection clauses or an approved certification mechanism pursuant to Art. 46 para. 2 letters a) - f) GDPR.

If the person responsible undertakes a transfer to a third country on the legal basis of Art. 49 para. 1 a) GDPR, you will be informed at this point about the possible risks of a data transfer to a third country.

There is a risk that the third country receiving your personal data may not provide an equivalent level of protection compared to the protection of personal data in the European Union. This may be the case, for example, if the EU Commission has not issued an adequacy decision for the third country in question or if certain agreements between the European Union and the third country in question are declared invalid. Specifically, there are risks in some third countries with regard to the effective protection of EU fundamental rights through the use of monitoring laws (e.g. USA). In such a case, it is the responsibility of the controller and the recipient to assess whether the rights of data subjects in the third country enjoy a level of protection equivalent to that in the Union and can be effectively enforced.

However, the basic data protection regulation should not undermine the level of protection of natural persons ensured throughout the Union when personal data are transferred from the Union to controllers, processors or other recipients in third countries or to international organisations, even if personal data are further transferred from a third country or from an international organisation to controllers or processors in the same or another third country or to the same or another international organisation.

14. Integration of other services and content of third parties

It may happen that content from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are included in this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third party provider") perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We endeavor to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content. However, we do not have any influence on this if the third parties provide the IP address e.g. to save for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform users about it.

15. Duration of storage of personal data

Personal data is stored for the duration of the respective legal retention period. After expiry of the deadline, the data will be routinely deleted, unless there is a need for a contract or fulfillment of the contract.

16. Applications (Training & Vacancies)

By submitting their application to us, applicants consent to the processing of their data for the purposes of the application procedure in accordance with the type and scope set out in this Privacy Policy.

If special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 Para. 1 DSGVO are voluntarily provided within the framework of the application procedure, they will also be processed in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 2 lit. b DSGVO (e.g. health data, such as severely disabled status or ethnic origin). Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO are requested from applicants as part of the application procedure, their processing will also be carried out in accordance with Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO (e.g. health data if they are required for the exercise of a profession).

If provided, applicants can submit their applications via an online form on our website. The data will be transmitted to us encrypted according to the state of the art.

Applicants can also send us their applications by e-mail. Please note, however, that e-mails are generally not sent in encrypted form and the applicants themselves must ensure that they are encrypted. We therefore cannot assume any responsibility for the transmission path of the application between the sender and the reception on our server and therefore recommend using an online form or postal dispatch. Instead of applying using the online form and e-mail, applicants still have the option of sending their application by post.

In the event of a successful application, the data provided by the applicants can be further processed by us for the purposes of the employment relationship. Otherwise, if the application for a job offer is not successful, the applicant's data will be deleted. Applicant data will also be deleted if an application is withdrawn, which applicants are entitled to do at any time.

Subject to justified revocation by the applicants, the data will be deleted after a period of six months so that we can answer any follow-up questions regarding the application and meet our obligations to provide evidence under the Equal Treatment Act. Invoices for any reimbursement of travel expenses will be archived in accordance with the provisions of tax law.
