General information on data protection
The term personal data is defined as akin in all applicable and published Data Protection Regulations. According to this, it is individual information about the personal or factual 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.
Unless otherwise stated in the following sections, no personal data is collected, processed or used when you use our website. When you access our website, some information is transmitted, such as IP address, type and version of the web browser used, the operating system used, the website from which you came and the time of the request.
We cannot use this data to identify individual users. The information is only statistically evaluated by us and used exclusively to improve the attractiveness, content and functionality of our websites.
As a Global Company, we are subject to a vast selection of Data Protection Laws, which include New Zealand`s Privacy Act 2020, Australia’s Privacy Act 1988, California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, New York`s Privacy Act, Washington Privacy Act, Singapore’s Personal Data Protection Act and of course the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation. Whilst we operate according to the very specific country provisions in all our satellite offices, we strive to apply the most stringed Data Protection Standards across all our operations and have thus implemented the principles set out in the GDPR across all our offices.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
We base the use of your data on the following legal grounds:
If the processing of personal data is carried out for the fulfilment of contracts concluded with us, it is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing operations of personal data, on Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, this is based on Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make processing of personal data necessary, on Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR.
If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.
Your rights as a data subject
First of all, we would like to inform you here about your rights as a data subject.
You have a number of ‘Data Subject Rights’ below is some information on what they are and how you can exercise them.
Right to information: You can request information from us as to whether and to what extent we process your data.
Right to rectification: If we process your data that is incomplete or incorrect, you can request that we correct or complete it at any time.
Right to erasure: You may request that we erase your data if we are processing it unlawfully or if the processing disproportionately interferes with your legitimate interests in protection. Please note that there may be reasons that prevent immediate deletion, e.g. in the case of legally regulated retention obligations. Irrespective of the exercise of your right to deletion, we will delete your data immediately and completely, insofar as there is no legal or statutory obligation to retain data in this respect.
Right to restriction of processing: You may request us to restrict the processing of your data if you dispute the accuracy of the data for a period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of the data, the processing of the data is unlawful, but you object to erasure and request restriction of data use instead, we no longer need the data for the intended purpose, but you still need this data to assert or defend legal claims, or you have objected to the processing of the data.
Right to data portability: You may request that we provide you with the data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and that you may transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from us, provided that we process this data on the basis of a revocable consent given by you or for the performance of a contract between us, and this processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures. If technically feasible, you may request us to transfer your data directly to another controller.
Right to object: If we process your data for legitimate interest, you may object to this data processing at any time; this would also apply to profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. You may object to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time without giving reasons.
Right of complaint: If you are of the opinion that we violate data protection law when processing your data, please contact us so that we can clarify any questions. Of course, you also have the right to contact the supervisory authority responsible for you, the respective state office for data protection supervision. If you wish to assert any of the aforementioned rights against us, please contact us. In case of doubt, we may request additional information to confirm your identity.
Where the processing of your personal information is based on consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent without detriment at any time.
The above rights may be limited in some circumstances, for example, if fulfilling your request would reveal personal information about another person, if you ask us to delete information which we are required to have by law, or if we have compelling legitimate interests to keep it. We will let you know if that is the case and will then only use your information for these purposes. You may also be unable to continue using our services if you want us to stop processing your personal information.
We encourage you to get in touch if you have any concerns with how we collect or use your personal information.

Integration Of Services And Contents Of Third Parties
We use within our online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), content or services offered by third-party providers in order to integrate their content and services.
This always requires that the third-party providers of this content are aware of your IP address since the content or service could not send to your browser without the IP address. The IP address is thus required for the display of this content and we endeavour to use providers that only use your IP address for the delivery of the content or services. However, Third-party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website.
