Data Protection

Data Protection Declaration

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of particular importance for the management of OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG. It is in principle possible to use the OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG website without providing any personal data. However, if an affected person wishes to use our company's special services through our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally seek the consent of the person affected. 

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, eMail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection provisions applicable to OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG. Through this privacy policy, our company seeks to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal information we collect, use and process. This privacy policy also informs data subjects of their rights.

OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures for the data controller to ensure the consistent maximum protection of personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, any Internet-based data communication can result in security vulnerability, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every affected person is free to submit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.

1. Definitions

Processing means any process or series of operations related to personal data, such as collecting, collecting, organizing, organizing, storing, adapting or modifying, reading, querying, using, with or without the aid of automated procedures; disclosure by submission, dissemination or other form of provision, reconciliation or association, restriction, erasure or destruction.

d)    Restriction of processing 

Restriction of the processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting its future processing.

e)    Profiling

Profiling is any kind of automated processing of personal data that consists of using that personal information to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular aspects relating to job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences or to analyse or predict preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, whereabouts or relocation of that natural person.

f)     Pseudonymisation 

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the need for additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g)    Data protection officer or controller 

The data protection officer or controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, or body that, alone or in concert with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data.

Authorities which may receive personal data within the scope of a particular inquiry under European Union or national law in connection with a particular mission are not classed as recipients in this sense.

j)      Third party

A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor to process the personal data.

k)    Consent

4. Cookies

The OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG websites use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser. 

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character sequence through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual's browser from other internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular web browser can be recognised and identified by the unique cookie ID. 

By using cookies, OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. 

Using cookies enables the information and offers on our website to be optimised to the benefit of the user. Cookies allow us, as already mentioned, to recognise the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies need not reenter their credentials each time they visit the website, as this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart by means of a cookie. 

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies already 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 data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in their Internet browser, it is possible that not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

5. Collecting general data and information 

The OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG website captures a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by an affected person or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the internet page from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrers ), (4) the sub-web pages which can be accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) of the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems. 

When using this general data and information, OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) to optimize the content of our website and to advertise it, (3) to ensure the continued functioning 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 cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is evaluated by OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG on the one hand statistically and also with the aim of increasing privacy and data security in our company, to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.

6. Contact via the website 

Due to legal regulations, the OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG website contains information that enables quick electronic contact with our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (eMail address). If an affected person contacts the data controller by eMail or via a contact form, the personal data provided by the data subject will be automatically saved. Such personal data, voluntarily transmitted by an individual to the controller, is stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties.

7. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data 

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage or as for periods prescribed by European regulators or by any other legislator in laws or regulations which the controller is subject to. 

If the storage purpose is omitted or if a storage period prescribed by the European regulators or any other relevant legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

8. Rights of the person concerned 

a)    Right to confirmation

Each data subject has the right, as granted by the European regulators, to require the controller to confirm whether personal data relating to him / her is being processed. If an affected person wishes to make use of this right of confirmation, they can contact an employee of the controller at any time.

b)    Right to information 

Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulatory Authority, to obtain from the data controller at any time information free of charge about the personal data stored about them and to receive a copy of that information. Furthermore, the European legislator and regulator has granted the data subject the right to the following information:

  • the processing purposes 
  • the categories of personal data being processed 
  • the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data has been disclosed or is yet to be disclosed, in particular to recipients in third countries or to international organisations

  • if the personal data is not collected from the data subject: All available information on the source of the data 
  • the existence of automated decision-making including profiling under Article 22 (1) and (4) of the GDPR and - at least in these cases - meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended impact of such processing on the data subject 


In addition, the data subject has a right of access as to whether personal data has been transmitted to a third country or to an international organisation. If that is the case, then the data subject has the right to obtain information about the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer. 

If an interested party wishes to exercise this right to information, they may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

c)    Right to rectification 

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator to demand the immediate correction of inaccurate personal data concerning them. Furthermore, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration, taking into account the purposes of the processing. 

If an affected person wishes to exercise this right of rectification, they may, at any time, contact an employee of the controller. 

d)    Right to cancellation (right to be forgotten)

Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European Directives and Regulators to require the controller to immediately delete the personal data concerning him, provided that one of the following reasons is satisfied and the processing is not required:

  • The personal data has been collected for such purposes or otherwise processed for which they are no longer necessary. 
  • The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR or Article 9 (2) (a) of the GDPR and lacks any other legal basis for the processing. 
  • The data subject objects to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR, and there are no legitimate reasons for the processing, or the data subject objects according to Art. 21 (2) GDPR Processing. 
  • The personal data was processed unlawfully. 
  • The erasure of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation under European Union or national law to which the controller is subject. 
    The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 para. 1 GDPR. 
     

If one of the above reasons is correct and an affected person wishes to arrange for the deletion of personal data stored by OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG, they may at any time contact an employee of the controller. The employee of OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG will arrange that the deletion request be fulfilled immediately. 

If the personal data has been made public by OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG and if our company is responsible for deleting personal data as the person responsible pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 GDPR, OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG will take appropriate measures, taking into consideration the available technology and the implementation costs, also those of a technical nature, to inform other data controllers processing the published personal data that the data subject has demanded that all other data controllers delete any links to such personal data or copies or replications of such personal data where processing of the data is not nbecessary. The staff of OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG will make the necessary arrangements in individual cases.

e)    Right to restriction of processing 

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulatory authority, to require the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions applies:

  • The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period of time that enables the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data. 
  • The processing is unlawful, the affected person rejects the deletion of the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of personal data. 
  • The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the affected person requires them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. 
  • The affected person has entered an objection to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the affected person.


If one of the above-mentioned conditions is met and an affected person wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG , they can contact an employee of the controller at any time. The employee of OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG will initiate the restriction of processing.

f)     Right to data portability 

Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European Directives and Regulations to obtain the personal data they have provided to a controller in a structured, standard and machine-readable format. They also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR or Article 9 (1) (b) 2 (a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR and processing by means of automated processes, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task of public interest or in the exercise of public authority, which has been assigned to the controller. 

Furthermore, in exercising their right to data portability under Article 20 (1) of the GDPR, the affected person has the right to effect that the personal data is transmitted directly from one controller to another, insofar as this is technically feasible and if this does not affect the rights and freedoms of others. 

To assert the right to data portability, the data subject may contact an employee of OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG at any time.

g)    Right to objection 

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority at any time, for reasons arising from their particular situation, to enter an objection zo the processing of personal data relating to them pursuant to Article 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. 

In the case of an objection, OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG will cease to process the personal data any more, unless it can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing, which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the affected person, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. 

If OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG processes personal information to operate direct advertising, the affected person has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purposes of such advertising. This also applies to profiling when associated with such direct advertising. If the affected person objects to OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG processing their data for the purpose of direct advertising, OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG will cease to process their personal data for these purposes. 

The affected person also has the right, for reasons arising from their particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data relating to them, which is performed by OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 (1) GDPR, unless such processing is necessary to fulfill a task of public interest. 

In order to exercise the right to object, the affected person may directly contact any employee of OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG or another employee. The affected person is also free, in the context of the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58 / EC, to exercise their right of opposition by means of automated procedures that use technical specifications.

h)    Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling 

Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right, as granted by the European Directives and Regulations Authority, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal effect on them or significantly compromises them in a similar manner, unless the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the affected person and the controller, or (2) is permitted by European Union or member state legislation to which the controller is subject, and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the affected person; or (3) with the explicit consent of the affected person. 

If the decision (1) is required for the conclusion or the performance of a contract between the affected person and the controller, or (2) it takes place with the explicit consent of the affected person, OffTEC Base GmbH & Co. KG will take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the affected person, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the controller, to express its own position and to contest the decision. 

If the affected person wishes to assert a right with regard to automated decision-making, they can contact an employee of the controller at any time.

i)      Right to revoke a privacy consent 

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulatory authority, to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time. 

If the affected person wishes to assert their right to withdraw consent, they may, at any time, contact an employee of the controller.

9. Data protection in applications and in the application process 

The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application process. The processing can also be done electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by eMail or via a web form available on the website. If the controller concludes a contract of employment with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purposes of the employment relationship in accordance with the law. If no employment contract is concluded with the candidate by the controller, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after the announcement of the rejection decision, unless deletion precludes other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interest in this sense would, for example, be a burden of proof for a legal proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

10. Privacy policy regarding the operation and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization feature)

The controller has integrated Google Analytics (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, recording and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website an affected person has come to a website from (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed, or how often and for which duration a subpage was viewed. Web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and providing a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. 

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy , Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States. 

The controller uses the addition "_ gat.anonymizeIp." This suffix will shorten and anonymise Google's IP address if the access to our website is from a member state of the European Union or another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. 

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile for us online reports showing the activities on our websites, and to provide other services related to the use of our website. 

Google Analytics uses a cookie on the information technology system of the affected person. What cookies are has already been explained above. Using this cookie enables Google to analyse the usage of our website. Each time one of the pages of the website for which the controller is responsible for processing and for which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the affected person is automatically initiated by the respective Google Analytics component to submit data to Google for online analysis purposes. In the course of this technical process, Google receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the affected person, which is used by Google, among other things, to understand the origin of the visitors and clicks and to subsequently enable commission statements. 

The cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as access time, the location from which access was made, and the frequency of site visits by the affected person. Each time you visit our website, your personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal information is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties. 

The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting 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 person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the affected person has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics for the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the person must download and install a browser add-on at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. Google classifies the installation of the browser add-on as an objection. If the information technology system of the affected person is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the affected person must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or disabled by the data subject or any other person within their sphere of control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on. 

Additional information and Google's privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html

Google Analytics is explained in more detail at https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

11. Privacy Policy Google Maps

This website uses the Google Maps product of Google Inc. By using this site, you consent to the collection, processing and use of the automated data collected by Google Inc, its agents and third parties.
You can find the terms of use of Google Maps under "Google Maps/Google Earth Additional Terms of Service"

12. Using Script Libraries (Google Webfonts) 

In order to render our content correctly and graphically appealing for all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website, such as: Google Webfonts ( https://www.google.com/webfonts/ ). Google web fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web fonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font.

Accessing script libraries or font libraries will automatically trigger a connection to the library's operator, Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. It is theoretically possible - but currently also unclear whether and if so for what purposes - that operators of such libraries collect data. 

The privacy policy of the library operator (Google) can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy

13. Legal basis of processing 

Art. 6 I lit . A GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract of which the affected person is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on Art. 6 I lit . b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as to satisfy tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit . c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the affected person or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Here the processing would be pursuant to Art. 6 I lit.  d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit . f GDPR. On this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the affected person prevail. We are particularly granted the right to use such processing operations because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator, which considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the affected person is a customer of the controller (Recital 47, Clause 2, GDPR).

14. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party 

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit . f GDPR, our legitimate interest is the conducting of our business to the benefit of all of our employees and shareholders.

15. Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted if it is no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.

16. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the affected person to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision 

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information about the contracting party). In order for a contract to be concluded, it may sometimes be necessary for an affected person to provide us with personal data that we subsequently need to process. For example, the affected person is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with them. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that it would not be possible to conclude the contract with the affected person. Prior to any personal data being provided by the affected person, the affected person must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of the non-provision of the personal data.

17. Existence of automated decision-making 

As a responsible company we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
