1. VISITING OUR WEBSITES
With every request, our web server processes a series of data that your browser automatically transmits to our web server, the so-called server log files. These are the IP address assigned to your device at the time of the visit, the date and time of the request, the time zone, the specific page or file accessed, the http status code and the amount of data transferred, as well as the so-called referrer URL (the website from which your request came), information about the browser used, the operating system of your terminal device and the language settings. Our web server uses this data to best display the content of this website on your device.
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google") on our websites. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by these cookies about your use of our websites is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP anonymization is activated for our websites, i.e. your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within the European Union or in another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the U.S. and shortened there.
Google will use this information as our processor in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO to evaluate your use of our websites, to compile reports on the activities on our websites and to provide other services related to the use of our websites and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software. You can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of our websites (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the available browser plugin.
The purpose of data processing is the presentation of Torq Consulting GmbH on the Internet and communication with interested parties, customers and business partners. The purpose of evaluating user behavior is to design our websites in line with requirements. The legal basis for processing the data is Article 6 (1) b) DS-GVO, the user contract for our websites. The legal basis for the analysis of user behavior is Article 6 para. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO, our legitimate interests are to ensure security and the needs-based design of our websites and advertising for our services.
Your IP address will be deleted in accordance with the statutory period.
2 CONTACT US
You can contact us at any time. In doing so, the personal data you provide us with will be stored and processed. The purpose of the processing is the preparation and implementation of a contractual relationship or other communication.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is, in the case of contracts, Article 6 (1) lit. b) DS-GVO or Article 6 (1) lit. f) DS-GVO, our legitimate interest being the response to your inquiry as well as the documentation of communication processes and the communication with (potentially) contract-related contacts. Furthermore, Article 6 para. 1 lit. c) DS-GVO is the legal basis, in particular tax and commercial law regulations.
Contact and contract data may be transmitted to further service providers, business partners as well as offices and authorities, if this is necessary for the execution of the contract or order. We also use service providers by way of order processing in the provision of services.
The processing of contact data with service providers and business partners is necessary to perform the contract or order. If the data is not provided, communication may be significantly disrupted. Data from contractual partners and service providers will be deleted ten calendar years after the contract or order is terminated.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, the information you provide in the inquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you entered 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 processing your request has been completed). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
3. DATA OF OUR BUSINESS PARTNERS
We process your data for the purpose of initiating and/or implementing the contractual relationship.
The legal basis for processing the data of business partners who are natural persons is Article 6 (1) (b) DS-GVO and Article 6 (1) (c) DS-GVO, as we are legally obliged to store business-related data due to commercial and tax regulations. The legal basis for the processing of contact data for business partners who are not natural persons is Article 6 (1) (f) DS-GVO; our legitimate interest here is, in particular, communication with our business partners.
In individual cases, it may be necessary to pass on your data to companies entrusted by us with the provision of individual services (e.g. printers) in order to perform the contract. These third parties commissioned by us are in turn obliged to comply with the statutory regulations when handling and processing this data. Recipients of data may also be banks and payment service providers, if and insofar as this is necessary for the processing of payments and credit checks. In individual cases, data may also be transmitted to collection service providers, lawyers and courts.
The provision of data is mandatory for customers both by law and by contract. Without providing data, a contractual relationship can neither be established nor carried out. All data relevant to the contract and booking will be stored for a period of ten calendar years after the end of the contract in accordance with tax and commercial law retention periods.
4. DECISION-MAKING PROCEDURES
We do not use any procedures of automated individual case decisions.
5. DATA SUBJECT RIGHTS
You have the right to request information about all personal data that we process about you at any time. If your personal data is incorrect or incomplete, you have the right to have it corrected and completed. You may also request the deletion of your personal data at any time, unless we are legally obliged or entitled to continue processing your data.
If the legal requirements are met, you may request a restriction of our processing of your personal data. You always have the right to object to processing insofar as the data processing is carried out for the purpose of direct advertising or profiling.
If the processing is carried out on the basis of a balance of interests, you may object to the processing by stating the reasons arising from your particular situation.
If the data processing is carried out on the basis of your consent or within the framework of a contract, you have a right to the transfer of the data you have provided, insofar as this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons. If we process your data on the basis of a declaration of consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. The processing carried out before a revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority at any time if you believe that data processing has been carried out in breach of applicable law.
