The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and if there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
If personal data (such as name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected on our website, this is always done on a voluntary basis, as far as possible. The processing of personal data always takes place in line with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the PWA Dr. Haufe GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
As the controller, the PWA Dr. Haufe GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can always be subject to security vulnerabilities, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
The data protection declaration of the PWA Dr. Haufe GmbH is based on the terms used by the European Data Protection Supervisor when adopting the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data consisting of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or change of location.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
The controller or person responsible for processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigative task under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.
Consent is any freely given specific and informed indication of his or her wishes in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
The controller within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is:

The employee of the PWA Dr. Haufe GmbH will arrange for the deletion request to be complied with immediately.
If the personal data has been made public by the PWA Dr. Haufe GmbH, and our company as the controller is obliged to delete the personal data pursuant to Article 17 (1) of the Data Protection Act (DSGVO), the PWA Dr. Haufe GmbH, taking into account the available technology and the costs of implementation, to implement reasonable measures, including technical measures, in order to inform other data controllers which process the published personal data, that the data subject has requested from those other data controllers to erase all links to or copies or replications of the personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The employee of the PWA Dr. Haufe GmbH will arrange the necessary in individual cases.

Every data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to obtain personal data concerning him or her, which has been provided by the data subject to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the DSGVO or Article 9(2)(a) of the DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the DSGVO and the processing is carried out by automated means, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The PWA Dr. Haufe GmbH shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

The data subject is also free to exercise his/her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and that such law lays down appropriate measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is made with the data subject’s explicit consent.

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analytics is the collection, collation and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on which website a data subject came to an internet page from (so-called referrers), which web pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a web page was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the costs and benefits of internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
We have concluded an order data processing contract with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
When collecting data in Google Analytics 4, all IP addresses collected from users in the EU are deleted before being recorded via EU domains and servers. Google Analytics does not log or store individual IP addresses. Nor is precise location data provided. Instead, the following metadata is derived from IP addresses: “city” (and the derived latitude and longitude of the city), “continent”, “country”, “region”, “subcontinent” (and the ID-based equivalents). For accesses originating from the EU, IP address data is only used to derive location data and is then immediately deleted. They are not logged, are not accessible and are not used for further use cases. Users can learn more by conculting Google’s official documentation.
When collecting measurement data in Analytics, all IP searches occur on EU-based servers before the traffic is routed to Analytics servers for processing.
Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. By each call-up of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical procedure, Google obtains knowledge about the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to this website.
This website uses the “Detailed location and device data collection” feature of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain statements about the city, latitude (of the city), longitude (of the city), minor version of the browser, user agent string of the browser, device brand, device model, device name, minor version of the operating system, minor version of the platform and screen resolution of the page visitors. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the item “Objection to data collection”.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to 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 data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programmes. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.
Art. 6 I lit. a DSGVO serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of 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 another service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b DSGVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DSGVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DSGVO.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, sentence 2 of the DSGVO).
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DSGVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. details of the contractual partner).
Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will explain to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or by contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
