2. Rights of the data subject
a) You have the following rights:
- In accordance with Article 7(3) of the GDPR, you have the right at any time to revoke the consent you have given us. We can then no longer process in the future any data that was based on this consent.
- In accordance with Article 15 of the GDPR, you have the right to request information about the personal data being processed by us. In particular, you can request information about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right of complaint, the origin of your data if it has not been collected by us, as well as the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, if applicable, meaningful information about its details.
- In accordance with Article 16 of the GDPR, you have the right to demand the immediate correction of inaccurate or incomplete personal data stored by us.
- In accordance with Article 17 of the GDPR, you have the right request deletion of your personal data stored by us unless its processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, or to comply with a legal obligation, or for reasons of public interest, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
- In accordance with Article 18 of the GDPR, you have the right to request restrictions on the processing of your personal data if you dispute the accuracy of the data, the processing is unlawful, you object to its deletion because we no longer require the data but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or you have objected to the processing in accordance with Article 21 of the GDPR.
- In accordance with Article 20 of the GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request that it be transferred to another controller.
- In accordance with Article 77 of the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. To do so, you can generally contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or workplace or our company headquarters.
b) Information on your right to object according to Article 21 of the GDPR
You also have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is being undertaken on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) of the GDPR (data processing in the public interest) and Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests); this also applies to profiling under Article 4(4) of the GDPR. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims. If your objection is to the processing of data for the purpose of direct marketing, we will immediately stop the processing. In this case, it is not necessary to specify a particular situation. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If you wish to exercise your right to object, simply send an email to email@example.com.
c) Right of complaint to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of data protection law, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in matters of data protection law in Germany is the State Data Protection Commissioner (Landesdatenschutzbeauftragte) of the federal state in which our company is based.

3. Data collection on our website
a) Analysis tools and third-party tools
When visiting our website, your browsing behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This is primarily done with cookies and what are known as analysis programs. Analysis of your browsing behaviour is usually anonymous; browsing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by choosing not to use certain tools.
b) SSL and/or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL and/or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. An encrypted connection can be recognised by the address line of the browser changing from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL and/or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
d) Server log files
The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in what are known as server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system in use
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of server request
- IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources, which means that the data cannot be assigned to specific individuals. If there are specific indications of illegal use, we reserve the right to check the data retrospectively. The basis for data processing is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
e) Contact form
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the form, including the contact details you have provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up enquiries. These details (telephone number, address, e-mail address) may be used by the company KIRITEC to contact you.
We will not share the collected data without your consent. The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. A simple email sent to us will be sufficient here. Legitimate data processing operations carried out until the revocation remain unaffected by the revocation. The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your enquiry). Binding legal provisions, especially retention periods, remain unaffected.
f) Newsletter data
You have an option on the website to subscribe to our newsletter mailing service. We then require your email address as well as information that allows us to check that you really are the owner of the specified email address and that you also agree to receive the newsletter. No other personal data is collected. The data collected will be used by us exclusively for the purpose of sending requested information and will not be passed on to third parties. The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). You can withdraw your consent to storing the data, the email address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example, by following the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter.
