Data protection

Thank you for your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of CONVERGIT GmbH. The CONVERGIT GmbH website can generally be used without providing any personal data.

3. Cookies

The Internet pages of CONVERGIT GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and stored on a computer system via 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 consists of a string of characters through which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other internet browsers that contain other cookies. A certain Internet browser can be recognized and identified via the unique Cookie-ID.

By using cookies, CONVERGIT GmbH can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the setting of Cookie-.

Using a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the interests of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. The user of a website that uses cookies, for example, does not have to re-enter their access data every time they visit the website, because this is done by the website and the cookie stored 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 person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

4. Collection of general data and information

The CONVERGIT GmbH website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the server's log files. The browser types and versions used can be recorded (1), (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system comes to our website ( so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, )51 the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet-Protocol-address (IP-address), (7) the Internet-Service-Provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to protect our systems against technological threats.

When using this general data and information, CONVERGIT GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to correctly deliver (1) the contents of our website, (2) to optimize the contents 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 help law enforcement authorities in the event of a cyber attack provide the information necessary for law enforcement. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated statistically by CONVERGIT GmbH on the one hand and 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 processed by us. The anonymous data in the Server- log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

5. Registration on our website

The data subject has the option of registering on the website of the person responsible for processing by providing personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the person responsible for processing results from the respective input mask that is used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the person responsible for processing and for their own purposes. The person responsible for processing can arrange for the data to be passed on to one or more processors, for example a parcel service provider, who also uses the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to the person responsible for processing.

By registering on the website of the person responsible for processing, the IP- address assigned to the person concerned by the Internet-Service-Provider (ISP), the date and time of registration are also saved. This data is stored against the background that this is the only way to prevent misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable us to investigate crimes that have been committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to protect the person responsible for processing. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on is used for criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject with the voluntary provision of personal data enables the data controller to offer the data subject content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the database of the person responsible for processing.

The person responsible for processing provides information to each person concerned at any time upon request about which personal data is stored about the person concerned. Furthermore, the person responsible for the processing corrects or deletes personal data at the request or advice of the person concerned, provided that there are no statutory retention requirements. All employees of the person responsible for processing are available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.

6. Subscription to our newsletter

On the CONVERGIT GmbH website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company's newsletter. The input mask used for this shows which personal data is transmitted to the person responsible for processing when the newsletter is ordered.

CONVERGIT GmbH informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about company offers. Our company's newsletter can generally only be received by the person concerned if (1) the person concerned has a valid E-Mail- address and (2) the person concerned registers to receive the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation email will be sent to the E-Mail- address entered by a person concerned for the first time for sending the newsletter using the Double-Opt-In- procedure. This confirmation email is used to check whether the owner of the E-Mail- address as the person concerned has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.

When registering for the newsletter, we also save the IP- address assigned by the Internet-Service-Provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to understand the possible misuse of the E-Mail- address of a data subject at a later point in time and therefore serves the legal protection of the person responsible for the processing.

The personal data collected when registering for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by E-Mail if this is necessary for the operation of the Newsletter- service or a related registration, as this could be the case in the case of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical conditions. The personal data collected as part of the Newsletter- service will not be passed on to third parties. The data subject can cancel the subscription to our newsletter at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time. There is a corresponding link in every newsletter for the purpose of revoking consent. Furthermore, there is the option of unsubscribing from the newsletter dispatch directly on the website of the person responsible for processing or to inform the person responsible for processing of this in another way.

7. Newsletter- tracking

The CONVERGIT GmbH newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in E- emails that are sent in HTML- format 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. Using the embedded tracking pixel, CONVERGIT GmbH can recognize whether and when an E-Mail was opened by an affected person and which links in the E-Mail were called up by the affected person.

Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the person responsible for processing in order to optimize the newsletter dispatch and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the person concerned. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the separate declaration of consent given via the Double-Opt-In- procedure. After a revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the person responsible for processing. CONVERGIT GmbH automatically interprets a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

8. Contact options via the website

Due to legal regulations, the website of CONVERGIT GmbH contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for the so-called electronic mail (E-Mail-Adresse). If a person concerned contacts the person responsible for processing via E-Mail or a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned will be automatically saved. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the person responsible for processing are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.

9. Comment function in the blog on the website

CONVERGIT GmbH offers users the option of leaving individual comments on individual Blog- contributions on a blog located on the website of the controller. A blog is a portal, usually publicly available on a website, in which one or more people, called bloggers or Web-Bloggers, can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.

If a person concerned leaves a comment in the blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the person concerned, information on the time the comment was entered and the username (Pseudonym) chosen by the person concerned are stored and published. Furthermore, the IP- address assigned to the person concerned by the Internet-Service-Provider (ISP) is also logged. The IP- address is stored for security reasons and in the event that the person concerned violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal content by submitting a comment. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the person responsible for the processing, so that he can exculpate himself in the event of a legal violation. This collected personal data will not be passed on to third parties unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the legal defense of the person responsible for the processing.

10. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

26. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract to which the data subject 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 Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. 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 that requires the processing of personal data, for example to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary 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 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 Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO are based. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO are based. 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 data subject 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, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible ( Recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

27. Legitimate interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

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

28. Duration for which the personal data will be stored

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

29. Statutory or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; Possible consequences of failure to provide it

We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is in part required by law (z.B. Tax regulations ) or also from contractual regulations ( e.g. Information about the contractual partner ) can result. In order to conclude a contract, it may sometimes be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that we subsequently have to process. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data when our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the person concerned. Before the person concerned provides personal data, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee explains to the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the failure to provide the personal data would have.
