3. General information and mandatory information

Data protection

The operators of this website and its pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Hence,

we handle your personal data as confidential information and in compliance with the statutory data

protection regulations and this Data Protection Declaration.

Whenever you use this website, a variety of personal information will be collected. Personal data comprises

data that can be used to personally identify you. This Data Protection Declaration explains which data we

collect as well as the purposes we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which purpose the

information is collected.

We herewith advise you that the transmission of data via the Internet (i.e., through e-mail communications)

may be prone to security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data against third-party access.

Information about the responsible party (referred to as the “controller” in the GDPR)

The data processing controller on this website is:

Angela Wetzel

Zanderweg 32

91325 Adelsdorf

Phone: 017682125631

E-mail: schnipselschnecke.angela@gmail.com

The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes

decisions as to the purposes of and resources for the processing of personal data (e.g., names, e-mail

addresses, etc.).

Storage duration

Unless a more specific storage period has been specified in this privacy policy, your personal data will remain

with us until the purpose for which it was collected no longer applies. If you assert a justified request for

deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted, unless we have other legally

permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g., tax or commercial law retention periods); in the

latter case, the deletion will take place after these reasons cease to apply.

Information on data transfer to the USA

Our website uses, in particular, tools from companies based in the USA. When these tools are active, your

personal information may be transferred to the US servers of these companies. We must point out that the

USA is not a safe third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are required to

release personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action

against this. The possibility cannot therefore be excluded that US authorities (e.g. secret services) may

process, evaluate, and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no

influence over these processing activities.

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also

revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness

of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PROCESSED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 SECT. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU

HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BASED

ON GROUNDS ARISING FROM YOUR UNIQUE SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING

BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. TO DETERMINE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PROCESSING OF

DATA IS BASED, PLEASE CONSULT THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU LOG AN

OBJECTION, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN

A POSITION TO PRESENT COMPELLING PROTECTION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING OF

YOUR DATA, THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF

THE PROCESSING IS THE CLAIMING, EXERCISING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTITLEMENTS

(OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 1 GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT ADVERTISING,

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR AFFECTED

PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO

THE EXTENT THAT IT IS AFFILIATED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR

PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING PURPOSES

(OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 2 GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory

agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the

place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other

administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your

consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine

readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done

only if it is technically feasible.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or

inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption

program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser

switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Encrypted payment transactions on this website

If you are under an obligation to share your payment information (e.g. account number if you give us the

authority to debit your bank account) with us after you have entered into a fee-based contract with us, this

information is required to process payments.

Payment transactions using common modes of paying (Visa/MasterCard, debit to your bank account) are

processed exclusively via encrypted SSL or TLS connections. You can recognize an encrypted connection by

checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the

appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

 If the communication with us is encrypted, third parties will not be able to read the payment information you

share with us.

Information about, rectification and eradication of data

Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand

information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the

processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified or eradicated. If you have

questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to

contact us at any time.

Right to demand processing restrictions

You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is

concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time. The right to demand restriction of processing applies in

the following cases:

  • In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need
    some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to
    demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.

  • If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to
    demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.

  • If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal
    entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead
    of its eradication.

  • If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be
    weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the
    right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.

 

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving

– may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to

protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by

the European Union or a member state of the EU.
