Data Protection

Data Protection

Thank you for your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly chief priority for the management of Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH. The Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH website can generally be used without providing any personal information. However, if a person wishes to use our company’s services through our website, it may be necessary to process some personal information. If the processing of personal information is necessary and there is a legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the affected person.

The processing of personal information, for example, the name, address, email address or telephone number of an affected person, is always carried out under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and under the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH. Through this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal information we collect, use and process. Furthermore, Data Owners are informed about their rights through this data protection declaration.

As the controller, Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for personal information processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person is free to transmit personal information to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.

1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

To analyse or predict the health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, whereabouts or relocation of this natural person.
  • f) Pseudonymisation. The pseudonymisation is the processing of personal information in a way in which the personal information can no longer be assigned to a specific person without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures that ensure that the personal information is not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
  • g) The person responsible or the person responsible for the processing. The person responsible or the person responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body which alone, or jointly with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal information.

However, authorities that may receive personal information as part of a specific investigation under Union law or the law of the member states are not considered recipients.
  • j) Third party. A third party is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body apart from the Data Owner, the person responsible, the processor and the persons who may process the personal information under the direct responsibility of the person responsible or the processor.

4. Cookies

The Internet pages of Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on a computer system through an Internet browser.

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier for the cookie. It comprises a sequence of characters through which websites and servers can assign to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the websites and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the particular person from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognised and identified through the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH can provide the users of this website more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie functions.

Using a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised to match the interests of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognise the users of our website and this recognition makes it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter their access data every time they visit the website, because a cookie is stored by the website on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop uses a cookie to remember the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart.

The affected person can prevent the use of cookies by our website at any time through a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the saving of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time within the Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the affected person deactivates the use of cookies in the Internet browser used, it is possible that some functions of our website may not be fully usable.

5. Collection of General Data and Information

The website of Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a Data Owner or an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the server’s log files: the (1) browser type and version used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed through an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) the Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the affected person. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the content of our website, (2) to optimise 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 cyberattack. Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH therefore evaluates this anonymously collected data and information statistically and also to increase data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal information processed by us. The anonymous data in the server log files are stored separately from all personal information provided by a Data Owner.

6. Contact Option on the Website

Because of legal regulations, the website of Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (email address). If a Data Owner contacts the person responsible for processing by email or through a contact form, the personal information transmitted by the Data Owner will be automatically saved. Such personal information transmitted voluntarily by a Data Owner to the person responsible for processing is stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the Data Owner. This personal information is not passed on to third parties.

7. Routine Deletion and Blocking of Personal information

The person responsible for the processing processes and stores personal information of the Data Owner only for the period of time that is necessary to achieve the purpose of the data processing or, if this is specified by the European directives and regulations or another legislator in-laws or regulations, for which the person responsible for the processing is subject to, was provided.

If this is the case, the Data Owner may also receive information about the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transmission.

The data protection officer of Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH or another employee will arrange for the deletion request to be completed immediately.

If the personal information has been made public by Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH and our company, as the person responsible, must delete the personal information under article 17, paragraph 1, of the GDPR, Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH will take appropriate measures, considering the available technology, the implementation costs, also the technical nature, in order to inform other data processors who process the published personal information that the Data Owner has requested the deletion of all links to this personal information or of copies or replications of these other data processors has requested personal information where processing is unnecessary.

    • The processing is unlawful: the affected person does not request the deletion of the personal information but instead requests that the use of the personal information be restricted;
    • The person responsible no longer needs the personal information for the purposes of processing, but the affected person needs them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims;
    • The affected person has lodged an objection to the processing under article 21, paragraph 1, of the GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the person responsible outweigh those of the affected person.

If one of the above conditions is met and an affected person would like to request the restriction of personal information stored at Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH, they can contact our data protection officer or another employee of the person responsible for processing at any time. The data protection officer of Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH or another employee will arrange for the processing to be restricted.

Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH will no longer process the personal information in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing that affect the interests, rights and freedoms of the Data Owner prevail, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH processes personal information in order to operate direct mail, the affected person may object at any time to the processing of personal information for such advertising. This also applies to profiling where it is associated with such direct advertising. If the affected person objects to Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH processing for direct marketing purposes, Dietsch Polstermöbel GmbH will no longer process the personal information for these purposes.

9. Data Protection in Applications and in the Application Process

The person responsible for processing collects and processes the personal information of applicants to handle the application process. The processing can also be done electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends the relevant application documents electronically, for example by email or through a web form on the website, to the person responsible for processing. If the person responsible for processing concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored to process the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the person responsible for processing does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interests of the person responsible for processing. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (GETA).

10. Data Protection Provisions on the Application and Use of Facebook

The person responsible for processing has integrated components of the Facebook company on this website. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with one another and interact in a virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enable the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Among other things, Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network through friend requests.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If a Data Owner lives outside the USA or Canada, the person responsible for processing personal information is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the affected person is automatically activated by the respective Facebook component causing a representation of the corresponding Facebook component to be downloaded from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_GB. As part of this technical process, Facebook receives knowledge of which specific page of our website is visited by the affected person.

If the affected person is logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognises with each visit to our website by the affected person and for the entire duration of their stay on our website, which specific page of our website the affected person is visiting. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned to the respective Facebook account of the affected person by Facebook. If the affected person activates one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example, the “Like” button, or if the affected person makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the affected person’s personal Facebook user account and saves this personal information.

Facebook always receives information through the Facebook component that the affected person has visited our website if the affected person is logged into Facebook at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the affected person clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the Data Owner does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Facebook account before calling up our website.

The data guideline published by Facebook, which is available at https://en-gb.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal information by Facebook. It also explains which setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the Data Owner. In addition, different applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the Data Owner to suppress data transmission to Facebook.

11. Data Protection Provisions on the Application and Use of Google Analytics (With an Anonymization Function)

The person responsible for processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with an anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, saving and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors of Internet pages. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on the website from which an affected person came to a website (so-called referrer), which pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a page was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and for a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The person responsible for processing uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the affected person is shortened and anonymized by Google if our Internet pages are accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another signatory to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the affected person. We already explained above what cookies are. With the saving of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the affected person is automatically triggered by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the affected person, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission accounting.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the affected person. Each time a person visits our website, this personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the affected person, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal information is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass this personal information collected through the technical process on to third parties.

The affected person can prevent the saving of cookies by our website, as already shown above, at any time through a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the saving of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the affected person. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time through the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the affected person can object to the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google and to prevent this. To do this, the affected person must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data or information on visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered an objection by Google. If the information technology system of the affected person is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later point in time, the affected person must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the affected person or another person who is attributable to their sphere of influence, there is the option of reinstalling or reactivating the browser add-on.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and at https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/terms/us/ Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/.

12. Data Protection Provisions on the Application and Use of Google+

The person responsible for processing has integrated the Google+ button as a component on this website. Google+ is a so-called social network. A social network is a social meeting place operated on the Internet, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with one another and interact in a virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enable the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Google+ enables users of the social network, among other things, to create private profiles, upload photos and network through friend requests.

Google+ is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google+ button has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the affected person is automatically prompted by the respective Google+ button to display the corresponding Google+ Download button from Google. As part of this technical process, Google gains knowledge of which specific page of our website is visited by the affected person.

If the affected person is logged in to Google+ at the same time, Google recognises which specific page of our website the affected person is visiting with each visit to our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Google+ button and assigned by Google to the respective Google+ account of the affected person.

If the affected person activates one of the Google+ buttons integrated on our website and thus makes a Google+ 1 recommendation, Google assigns this information to the personal Google+ user account of the affected person and saves this personal information. Google saves the Google +1 recommendation of the affected person and makes it publicly available under the conditions accepted by the affected person in this regard. A Google +1 recommendation made by the affected person on this website will subsequently be used together with other personal information, such as the name of the Google +1 account used by the affected person and the photo stored in it in other Google services. For example, the search engine results of the Google search engine, the Google account of the affected person or other places, like websites or in connection with advertisements, are stored and processed. Furthermore, Google can link the visit to this website with other personal information stored by Google. Google also records this personal information to improve or optimise the various Google services.

13. Legal Basis for Processing

Art. 6, letter a, of the GDPR gives our company the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal information is necessary to fulfil a contract to which the Data Owner is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on article 6, letter b, of the GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example, in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal information, for example, to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on article 6, letter c, of the GDPR. In rare cases, it may be necessary to process personal information in order to protect the vital interests of the Data Owner or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance data 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 article 6, letter d, of the GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on article 6, letter f, of the GDPR. The processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the affected person do not prevail. We are particularly permitted to carry out such processing operations because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, they took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the affected person is a customer of the person responsible (article 47, sentence 2, of the GDPR).

14. Legitimate Interests in Processing That Are Being Pursued by the Controller or a Third Party

If the processing of personal information is based on article 6, letter f, of the GDPR, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business activities for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.

15. Duration for Which the Personal information Is Stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal information is the respective statutory retention period. After the period has expired, the relevant data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for contract fulfilment or contract initiation.

16. Legal or Contractual Provisions for the Provision of Personal information; Necessity for the Conclusion of the Contract; Obligation of the Data Owner to Provide the Personal information; Possible Consequences of Non-Provision

We explain to you that the provision of personal information is partly required by law (e.g., tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g., information on the contractual partner). In order to conclude a contract, it may sometimes be necessary for a Data Owner to provide us with personal information that we subsequently have to process. For example, the Data Owner must provide us with personal information when our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal information would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the affected person. Before the affected person provides personal information, the affected person must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer informs the Data Owner on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal information is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal information and what consequences failing to provide the personal information would have.

17. Existence of Automated Decision-Making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
