General Information about Data Processing

Scope of Processing of Personal Data

We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with data protection legislation and this data protection declaration. Our web page can in general be used without providing personal data. Where personal data (for example name, address or email addresses) are collected on our pages, this is as far as possible always on a voluntary basis. These data are not transferred to third parties without your explicit consent.

We would point out that data transmission via the Internet (e.g. in email communications) may involve security vulnerabilities. Data cannot be completely protected from access by third parties.

Duration of Storage of Personal Data

We erase your personal data once storage is no longer necessary for meeting the purposes of data processing. Certain data, however, are subject to statutory retention periods, for which reason we are in some cases not permitted to erase the data. If such statutory retention periods apply, we restrict processing. If you have granted us consent for long-term storage, we will not erase the data until the erasure deadline in the consent has passed.

Rights of Data Subjects

If your personal data are processed, you are a data subject for the purposes of GDPR and you have the following rights in relation to the controller:

You are entitled to request access to the personal data concerning you which we store (Article 15 GDPR). If the data are inaccurate, you have the right to rectification (Article 16 GDPR). Should you consider the data to have been unlawfully processed, you have the right pursuant to the provisions of Articles 17 and 18 GDPR to obtain erasure of the data or restriction of processing. Insofar as processing of your personal data is based on a contract between you and us or on consent, you additionally have a right to data portability (Article 20 GDPR).

Right to Object

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. After objection has been raised the controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless the controller can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override towards your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims. Where personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing. Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you shall no longer be processed for such purposes.

Right to Withdraw Declaration of Consent under Data Protection Law

You have the right to withdraw your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Right to Lodge a Complaint with a Supervisory Authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes GDPR.

The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78 GDPR.

Cookies

sp-protec.com web pages make use of cookies. Cookies are text files placed and stored on a computer system by an Internet browser. Numerous web pages and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a cookie ID which uniquely identifies the cookie. The ID consists of a sequence of characters which web pages and servers can associate with the specific Internet browser in which the cookie has been stored. This allows the visited web pages and servers to distinguish between the particular browser of the individual in question and other Internet browsers containing other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified from the unique cookie ID. Using cookies allows sp-protec.com to provide the users of this web page with more user-friendly services which would not be possible without setting cookies. The information and offers made on our web page can be optimized for the user by means of a cookie. As mentioned, cookies allow us to recognize the users of our web page. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our web page. For example, a web page user who accepts cookies need not input their access data again each time they visit because this is done by the web page and the cookie placed on the user's computer system. Another example is the shopping cart cookie in an online shop. The online shop uses a cookie to record the article which a customer has placed in their virtual shopping cart. The individual in question can at any time prevent our web page from setting cookies by making appropriate settings in their Internet browser and so permanently object to cookies being set. In addition, cookies which have already been set can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other software. This is possible in all usual Internet browsers. If the individual in question disables cookies from being set in their Internet browser, it might under certain circumstances not be possible to make full use of all the functions of our web page.
