The website of CURREX GmbH collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server.

Rather, this information is required to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore statistically evaluated by CURREX GmbH and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to 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 all personal data provided by a data subject.

9. Registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the data controller by providing personal data. The personal data to be sent to the controller is derived from the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject shall be collected and stored solely for internal use by the controller and for his own purposes. The controller may arrange for the transfer to one or more processors, such as a parcel service, who also uses the personal data only for internal use attributable to the controller.

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject, the date and time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that only in this way the misuse of our services can be prevented, and these data make it possible, if necessary, to clarify past offenses. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to secure the controller. A disclosure of these data to third parties is not, unless there is a legal obligation to pass on or the disclosure of law enforcement serves.

By registering the data subject voluntarily providing personal data, the data controller serves to provide the data subject with content or services that, due to the nature of the case, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data given at registration at any time or to delete it completely from the database of the data controller.

The data controller will provide each data subject with information on which personal data about the data subject is stored at any time on request. Furthermore, the person responsible for processing corrects or deletes the personal data at the request or advice of the data subject, provided that there are no statutory retention requirements. The entire staff of the controller is available to the data subject as a contact person in this context.

Depending on the type of contract concluded, we save the following data:

  • Surnames, first names
  • Address
  • Billing Address
  • Email Address
  • Phone number

10. Subscription to our newsletter

On the CURREX GmbH website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company's newsletter. Which personal data are transmitted to the person responsible for processing when you order the newsletter is determined from the input mask used for this purpose.

CURREX GmbH informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about offers from the company. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers to send the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address entered by the data subject for the first time for sending the newsletter in a double opt-in procedure. This confirmation email is used to check whether the owner of the email address as the person concerned has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.

When subscribing to the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration, as assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP). The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of an affected person's e-mail address at a later date and therefore serves as legal safeguards for the controller.

The personal data collected in the context of registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively to send our newsletter. Subscribers to the newsletter may also be notified by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or registration, as might be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter or technical changes. There will be no transfer of the personal data collected as part of the newsletter service to third parties. Subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for the newsletter dispatch can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking the consent, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, directly on the controller's website, or to inform the controller in a different way.

11. Newsletter tracking

The CURREX GmbH newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in emails that are sent in HTML format in order to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This enables a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, CURREX GmbH can recognize whether and when an email was opened by a data subject and which links in the email were called up by the data subject.

Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimize the sending of the newsletter and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the separate declaration of consent relating to this, which is made using the double opt-in procedure. After revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the controller. If you unsubscribe from the newsletter, CURREX GmbH automatically interprets it as a revocation.

14. Use of Google Tag Manager
We use the Google Tag Manager service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA on our website. With Google Tag Manager, marketers can manage website tags through one interface. A day is a marking or marking of a database. The Tag Manager itself, which uses the tags, works without cookies and does not collect any personal data. The tags set up via the Google Tag Manager only ensure the collection of data that are passed on to the target system. Because the data is only passed on, the system does not collect or save the determined data itself. The Tag Manager therefore only triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Corresponding explanations for these respective third-party providers can be found in this data protection declaration. Google Tag Manager does not use this data. If you have deactivated cookies or made any other changes, this will be observed for all tracking tags that were used with Google Tag Manager, so the tool does not change your cookie settings.

Google may ask for your permission to share some product information (e.g. your account information) with other Google products in order to activate certain features, e.g. For example, it’s easier to add new conversion tracking tags for AdWords. Google’s developers also periodically review product usage information to further optimize the product. However, Google will not pass on this type of data to other Google products without your consent.

For more information, see Google’s usage guidelines and Google’s privacy policy for this product.

15. Remarketing / retargeting

(1) We use “Custom Audiences” from Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”) on our website for the purposes of retargeting or remarketing. This service uses so-called tracking or remarketing pixels. These are pixel image files that enable log file analysis. By using the pixels, the service provider can see when and how many users have accessed the pixel, or whether and when an email was opened or a website was visited.

(2) With the help of this service, users of the website can be shown interest-based advertisements ("Facebook ads") when visiting the social network Facebook or other websites that also use the method.

In the event of an objection, CURREX GmbH will no longer process the personal data, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend of legal claims.

If CURREX GmbH processes personal data in order to operate direct mail, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising.

h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, as granted by the European directives and regulations, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal effect on it or, in a similar manner, significantly affects it; if the decision (1) is not required for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is permitted by Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject or (3) with the express consent of the data subject.

18. Data protection in applications and in the application process

The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application process. The processing can also be done electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form available on the website. If the controller concludes a contract of employment with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purposes of the employment relationship in accordance with the law. If no employment contract is concluded with the candidate by the controller, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after the announcement of the rejection decision, unless deletion precludes other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interest in this sense, for example, a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

19. Legal basis of processing

Art. 6 I lit. A DS-GMO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract of which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GMO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GMO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have 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-GMO are based. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GMOs are based. On this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly allowed to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. It considered in that regard that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

20. Authorized interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GMO is our legitimate interest in conducting our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders.

21. 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 deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.

22. Legal or contractual provisions 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 non-provision

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (eg tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (eg information about the contracting party). Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of the non-provision of the personal data.

23. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
