This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. IVM Ingo von Minden Engineering office and industrial representations will no longer process personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If IVM Ingo von Minden Engineering office and industrial representations processes personal data in order to carry out direct advertising, the person concerned has the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If the person concerned objects to IVM Ingo von Minden Engineering office and industrial representations processing for direct advertising purposes, IVM Ingo von Minden Engineering office and industrial representations will no longer process the personal data for these purposes. In addition, the data subject has the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning him/her which is carried out at IVM Ingo von Minden Engineering office and industrial representations for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to article 89 (1) GDPR, for reasons arising from his particular situation, unless such processing is necessary to fulfil a task in the public interest. To exercise the right of objection, the person concerned may directly contact any employee of IVM Ingo von Minden Engineering office and industrial representations. The data subject shall also be free to exercise his right of opposition in relation to the use of information society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC. 8) Automated Decisions in individual Cases including Profiling Any person data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the european legislator of directives and regulations not to be subject to a decision, based exclusively on automated processing including profiling, which has legal effect against him or significantly affects him in a similar manner, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is admissible under union law or under law of member state to which the data controller is subject and that such law contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject or (3) with the express consent of the data subject. If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) if it is taken with the express consent of the data subject, IVM Ingo von Minden Engineering office and industrial representations will take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a data controller to state his own position and to contest the decision. If the data subject wishes to assert rights relating to automated decisions he or she may contact an employee of the controller at any time. 9) Right to revoke Consent under Data Protection Law Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the european legislator of directives and regulations to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the data subject wishes to exercise his/her right to withdraw his/her consent, he/she may contact an employee of the controller at any time. X. Data Protection for Applications and in the Application Process The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends corresponding application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e- mail or via web form on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted two months after notification of the decision of refusal, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller prevent the deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). XI. Legal Basis of the Processing Article 6 (1) point a GDPR serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. Is the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, for example in the case of processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, processing is based on article 6 (1) point b GDPR. The same applies to such processes that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on art. 6 (1) point c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. The processing would then be based on article 6 (1) point d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on article 6 (1) point f GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard 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. Such processing procedures are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the european legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 second sentence GDPR). XII. Legitimate Interests in the Processing pursued by the Controller or a third Party If the processing of personal data is based on article 6 (1) point f GDPR, it is in our legitimate interest to conduct our business for the well-being of all our employees. XIII. Duration of Data Storage The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract. XIV. Legal or contractual Requirement for the Provision of personal data/ Necessity for the Conclusion of the Contract/ Obligation of the Data Subject to provide the personal Data/ Possible Consequences of Failure to provide them 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 some cases, it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject provides us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company enters into a contract with him/her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee informs the person concerned in each individual case 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 consequences the failure to provide the personal data would have. XV. Existence of automated Decision-making As a responsible company we do without automatic decision-making or profiling.
