Data protection has a particularly high priority for Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG. The use of the Internet pages of the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG website 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 General Data Protection Regulation, and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG’s data protection regulations applicable to this country. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the public about the type, 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 Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based 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.
The data protection declaration of the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG is based on the notions used by the European Data Protection Supervisor when issuing the Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:
a) Personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, 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.
b) Data subject
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling shall mean any automated processing of personal data which consists in using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way 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 organizational measures which ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller or data controller
The controller or person responsible for processing 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 designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.
j) Third party
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor, and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.
Consent shall mean any freely given specific and informed indication of the data subject’s wishes, in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act, by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her. 2.

5. Collection of general data and information
The website of Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG collects a series of general data and information every time a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The types and versions of browsers used, the operating system used by the accessing system, the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), the sub-websites accessed via an accessing system on our website, the date and time of access to the website, an Internet protocol address (IP address), the Internet service provider of the accessing system and other similar data and information that serve to avert risks in the event of attacks on our information technology systems may be recorded.
When using these general data and information, the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed in order to deliver the contents of our website correctly, to optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for these, to ensure the long-term operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber-attack. This anonymously collected data and information is used by the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG on the one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, so that we can ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

If this is the case, the data subject shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate safeguards in relation to the transfer.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may contact an employee of the controller at any time.
c) Right of rectification
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to obtain the rectification without delay of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee 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 insofar as the processing is not necessary:
The personal data were collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
The data subject revokes the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) DS-GVO or Art. 9(2)(a) DS-GVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) DS-GVO and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) DS-GVO.
The personal data have been processed unlawfully.
The erasure of the personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
The personal data have been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8(1) DS-GVO.
If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG shall arrange for the deletion request to be complied with immediately.
If the personal data was made public by the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG has been made public and our company is obligated to delete the personal data pursuant to Art. 17 Para. 1 DS-GVO, the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG shall implement appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the costs of implementation, in order to inform other data controllers which process the published personal data that the data subject has requested from those other data controllers the erasure of all links to the personal data or to copies or replications of the personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The employee of the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG will arrange the necessary thing in individual cases.
e) Right to restriction of processing
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 restriction of processing where one of the following conditions is met:
The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
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 Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG will arrange the restriction of the processing.
f) Right to data portability
Any person concerned 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. The data subject shall also have the right to transmit such data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data have been 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 by automated means, 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 the direct transfer of personal data from one controller to another controller where technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.
In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact any employee of the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG at any time.
g) Right to object
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DS-GVO. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG 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 defense of legal claims.
If the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG 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 the profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the GmbH & Co. KG to processing for the purposes of direct marketing, the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG 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 Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89 (1) of the Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO), 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 any employee of the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG or another employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his/her right to object in relation to the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, 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 the 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, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorized by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and that such law lays down appropriate measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is made with the data subject’s explicit consent.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) it is made with the data subject’s explicit consent, the Denkinger GmbH & Co. KG shall implement suitable 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 controller, 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 any employee of the controller.
i) Right to withdraw consent under data protection law
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation 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 any employee of the controller.
11. Data protection for applications and in the application procedure
The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. The processing may also take place electronically. This is in particular the case when an applicant submits relevant application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form located on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents are automatically deleted two months after the notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller conflict with such deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
12. Data protection provisions on the use and application of Google AdWords
The controller has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads in Google’s search engine results as well as in the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to specify certain keywords in advance, by means of which an ad is displayed in Google’s search engine results exclusively when the user retrieves a keyword-relevant search result with the search engine. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed on topic-relevant websites by means of an automatic algorithm and in compliance with the previously defined keywords.
The operating company of the Google AdWords services is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and to display third-party advertising on our website.
If a data subject accesses our website via a Google advertisement, a so-called conversion cookie will be stored by Google on the data subject’s information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve to identify the data subject. The conversion cookie is used to track whether certain sub-pages, for example the shopping basket of an online shop system, have been called up on our website, provided the cookie has not yet expired. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to track whether a data subject who has accessed our website via an AdWords ad has generated a sale, i.e. has completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.
The data and information collected using the conversion cookie are used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other advertisers of Google AdWords receive information from Google by means of which the data subject could be identified.
By means of the conversion cookie, personal information, such as the websites visited by the data subject, is stored. Each time the data subject visits our website, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the data subject has the option to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads from any of the internet browsers he or she uses and make the desired settings there.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
14. Legal basis for processing
Article 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for our company 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 the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries 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 fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary in order to protect the 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 details 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 DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which 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).
15. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of the welfare of all our employees and our shareholders.
16. Duration for which the personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of the contract.
17. 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 not providing the data.
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. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will explain to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be. 18.
18. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
