Any data subject may contact our data protection officer directly at any time with any questions or suggestions regarding data protection.
We are pleased about your interest in our agency group. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of fischerAppelt AG. As a rule, it is possible to use the fischerAppelt AG website without disclosing personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our company via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. In general, if the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we obtain the consent of the data subject.
As the controller, fischerAppelt AG has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
The controller shall process and store personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European legislator or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller may be subject.
If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or other competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or erased in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Rights of the data subject
a) Right to confirmation
Every data subject has the right, granted by the European legislator, to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning him or her are being processed.

Furthermore, the data subject has the right, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to request the completion of incomplete personal data - including by means of a supplementary declaration.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectify, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller.
d) Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to request from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data concerning him or her, where one of the following grounds applies and insofar as the processing is not necessary:
- The personal data were collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
- The data subject revokes the consent on which the processing is based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR or Art. 9(2)(a) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
- The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (2) of the GDPR.

- The erasure of the personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under European Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.

If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to arrange for the erasure of personal data stored by fischerAppelt AG, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller. The data protection officer of fischerAppelt AG or another employee will arrange for the erasure request to be complied with immediately.
If the personal data have been made public by fischerAppelt AG, and our company as the controller is obliged to erase the personal data pursuant to Art. 17 (1) of GDPR, fischerAppelt AG shall take reasonable measures, including of a technical nature, to inform other data controllers which process the published personal data, given the available technology and the cost of implementation, that the data subject has requested from those other data controllers the erasure of all links to the personal data or copies or replications of the personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The data protection officer of fischerAppelt AG or another employee will undertake the necessary steps 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 legislator, to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:
- The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a sufficient period of time to enable the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
- The processing is unlawful, the data subject objects to the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of the use of the personal data.
- The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
- The data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) of the GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate grounds of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.
If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by fischerAppelt AG, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller. The data protection officer of fischerAppelt AG or another employee shall arrange for the restriction of the processing.
f) Right to data portability
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to receive the 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 was provided insofar as the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR or Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6(1)(b) of GDPR 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.
Furthermore, when exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 (1) of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to request that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals.
In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact the data protection officer appointed by fischerAppelt AG or another employee.
g) Right of objection
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
fischerAppelt AG 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 defense of legal claims.
If fischerAppelt AG processes personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data processed for such marketing. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to fischerAppelt AG with regard to processing for direct marketing purposes, fischerAppelt AG will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by fischerAppelt AG for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 (1) GDPR, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact the data protection officer of fischerAppelt AG or another employee. The data subject is also free, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European legislator, 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, unless the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is permitted by European Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, and that law contains suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is based on the data subject's explicit consent.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) if it is made with the data subject's explicit consent, fischerAppelt AG shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated decision-making, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller.
i) Right to revoke consent under data protection law
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller.
Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis 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 party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data is required, such as for compliance with tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were to be injured 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. In this case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Processing operations could ultimately be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are governed by 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 do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, the European legislator considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (rec. 47, sent. 2, GDPR).
Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities in favor of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
Duration for which personal data will be stored
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the deadline, the corresponding data is routinely erased, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfillment or initiation of the contract.
Legal or contractual requirements to provide personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject 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 may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In order to conclude a contract, it may sometimes be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that 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. The person affected must contact our data protection officer before providing his or her personal data. Our data protection officer will inform the data subject 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 the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
