3. General and mandatory information

Data protection

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with data protection laws and this privacy statement.
When you use this website, various personal data is collected.
Personal data is data which can be used to identify you personally. This privacy statement explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how this happens and for what purpose.
We point out that the transmission of data over the internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) may reveal security gaps. Even though we exercise the greatest possible care in protecting your data, we are unable to provide 100 % protection against access by third parties.

 

Information about the controller

The controller responsible for the processing of data on this website is:

Talamon GmbH

Arthur-Wilke-Straße 1

14727 Premnitz

Telephone: +49 3386 21 11 20

E-Mail: datenschutz@talamon.de

The controller is the natural person or legal entity who decides alone or together with others on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses and the like).

 

Storage period

Unless a more specific storage period is stated in this privacy statement, your personal data will be held by us until the purpose for the data processing no longer exists. If you make a legitimate request for the erasure of data or withdraw your consent to data processing, your data will be erased unless we have other lawful reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case the data will be erased when these reasons cease to exist.

 

Information on the transfer of data to the USA

Among other things, tools of companies based in the USA are integrated into our website. If these tools are active, your personal data can be transferred to the US servers of the respective companies. We point out that the USA is not a secure third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are required to disclose personal data to security authorities, and you do not have the right as the data subject to take legal action against this.
It cannot therefore be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. secret services) process, analyse and permanently store your data on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no control over this processing activity.

 

Withdrawal of your consent to data processing

Many data processing procedures are only possible with your express consent. You can withdraw at any time any consent that you have given. The lawfulness of the processing that has taken place up until the withdrawal of your consent will not be affected by the withdrawal.

 

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

If the processing of data is based on Art. 6 (1) point (e) or (f) GDPR, you will have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time; this also applies to any profiling based on those provisions. The respective legal basis for any processing can be found in this privacy statement. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data, unless we can provide proof of compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the enforcement, exercising or defence of legal rights (objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR).
If personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning yourself for the purpose of such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing (objection pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR).

If you would like to exercise your right to object, you only need to send to us an e-mail in text form to datenschutz@talamon.de; you do not need to state the reasons.

 

Right to complain to the responsible supervisory authority

In the event of a breach of GDPR, the data subject has the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of his/her place of residence, his/her place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The data subject will have the right to complain notwithstanding any other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have the data which we process by automated means on the basis of your consent or in the performance of a contract issued to yourself or a third party in a commonly-used and machinereadable format. If you ask for the data to be transmitted to another controller, this will only be done if this is technically feasible.

 

SSL/TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content which you send to us as the website operator, for example orders and enquiries, our website uses SSL/TLS encryption.
You can recognise an encrypted connection by the browser’s address bar switching from “http://” to “https://” and the padlock icon in the browser bar.

If the SSL/TLS encryption is activated, the data which you communicate to us cannot be read by third parties.

 

Information, erasure, correction

You have within the scope of the applicable statutory regulations at all times the right to receive free of charge information on your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, the right to the correction or erasure of this data. You can contact us at any time concerning this or if you have any other questions relating to personal data.

 

Right to limit the processing

You have the right to ask for the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
You can contact us at any time concerning this. The right to restriction of processing will exist in the following cases:
If you challenge the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we will generally need time to check this. For the duration of this check, you have the right to ask for the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the exercising, defence or enforcement of legal rights, you have the right to ask for the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its erasure.
If you have made an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, our interests have to be balanced against your interests. Until it is decided whose interests are overriding, you have the right to ask for the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have limited the processing of your personal data, this data will, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the enforcement, exercising or defence of legal rights or for the protection of the rights of another natural person or legal entity or for reasons of substantial public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.

 

Objection against advertising e-mails

We expressly object herewith to the use by third parties of the contact data published in the impressum to send advertising and information that has not been expressly requested. The operator of the website expressly reserves the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information by for example spam mails.
