Privacy Policy

We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise.
Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of
the Labor Kotalla GbR. The use of the Internet pages of the Labor
Kotalla GbR is possible without any indication of personal data;
however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via
our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the
processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis
for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail
address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line
with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance
with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the
Labor Kotalla GbR. By means of this data protection declaration, our
enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope,
and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process.
Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data
protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.

As the controller, the Labor Kotalla GbR has implemented numerous
technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete
protection of personal data processed through this website. However,
Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps,
so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every
data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative
means, e.g. by telephone.

1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of the Labor Kotalla GbR is based on
the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection
declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public,
as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would
like to first explain the terminology used.

In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the
following terms:

  • a) Personal data

    Personal data means any information relating to an identified or
    identifiable natural person (“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.

  • b) Data subject

    Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose
    personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the
    processing.

  • c) Processing

    Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed
    on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by
    automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation,
    structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation,
    use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making
    available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or
    destruction.

  • d) Restriction of processing

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

  • e) Profiling

    Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data
    consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal
    aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or
    predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work,
    economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests,
    reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

  • f) Pseudonymisation

    Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner
    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 to ensure that the personal data are not
    attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

  • g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing

    Controller or controller responsible for the 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 nomination may be provided for by Union
    or Member State law.

  • h) Processor

    Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or
    other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

  • i) Recipient

    Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or
    another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third
    party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal
    data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union
    or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing
    of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with
    the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the
    processing.

  • j) Third party

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

  • k) Consent

    Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed
    and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or
    she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies
    agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

3. Cookies

The Internet pages of the Labor Kotalla GbR use cookies. Cookies are
text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites 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 string through which Internet pages and
servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the
cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to
differentiate the individual browser of the dats subject from other
Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet
browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, the Labor Kotalla GbR can provide the
users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be
possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can
be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously
mentioned, to recognize our website users. The purpose of this
recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The
website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data
each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the
website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user’s computer system.
Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in an online shop. The
online store remembers the articles that a customer has placed in the
virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies
through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet
browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies.
Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an
Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all
popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting
of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our
website may be entirely usable.

4. Collection of general data and information

The website of the Labor Kotalla GbR collects a series of general
data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up
the website. This general data and information are stored in the server
log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2)
the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from
which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4)
the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site,
(6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service
provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and
information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information
technology systems.

When using these general data and information, the Labor Kotalla GbR
does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this
information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website
correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its
advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information
technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law
enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal
prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the Labor Kotalla GbR
analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with
the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our
enterprise, and to 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 a data subject.

5. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the
data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of
storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or
other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is
subject to.

If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period
prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator
expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance
with legal requirements.

6. Rights of the data subject

  • a) Right of confirmation

    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European
    legislator to obtain from the controller the confirmation as to whether
    or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a
    data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of confirmation, he
    or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

  • b) Right of access

    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European
    legislator to obtain from the controller free information about his or
    her personal data stored at any time and a copy of this information.
    Furthermore, the European directives and regulations grant the data
    subject access to the following information:

    • the purposes of the processing;
    • the categories of personal data concerned;
    • the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data
      have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third
      countries or international organisations;
    • where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data
      will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that
      period;
    • the existence of the right to request from the controller
      rectification or erasure of personal data, or restriction of processing
      of personal data concerning the data subject, or to object to such
      processing;
    • the existence of the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory
      authority;
    • where the personal data are not collected from the data subject, any
      available information as to their source;
    • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling,
      referred to in Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in those
      cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the
      significance and envisaged consequences of such processing for the data
      subject.

    Furthermore, the data subject shall have a right to obtain
    information as to whether personal data are transferred to a third
    country or to an international organisation. Where this is the case, the
    data subject shall have the right to be informed of the appropriate
    safeguards relating to the transfer.

    If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of access, he
    or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

  • c) Right to rectification

    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European
    legislator to obtain from the controller without undue delay the
    rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Taking
    into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have
    the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means
    of providing a supplementary statement.

    If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he
    or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

  • d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)

    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European
    legislator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data
    concerning him or her without undue delay, and the controller shall have
    the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of
    the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not
    necessary:

    • The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the
      purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
    • The data subject withdraws consent to which the processing is based
      according to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of
      Article 9(2) of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground 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 personal data have been unlawfully processed.
    • The personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal
      obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is
      subject.
    • The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of
      information society services referred to in Article 8(1) of the GDPR.

    If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject
    wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by the Labor
    Kotalla GbR, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the
    controller. An employee of Labor Kotalla GbR shall promptly ensure that
    the erasure request is complied with immediately.

    Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged
    pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller,
    taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation,
    shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform
    other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has
    requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or
    replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not
    required. An employees of the Labor Kotalla GbR will arrange the
    necessary measures in individual cases.

  • e) Right of restriction of processing

    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European
    legislator to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where
    one of the following applies:

    • The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject,
      for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the
      personal data.
    • The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure
      of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of their use
      instead.
    • The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of
      the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the
      establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
    • The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article
      21(1) of the GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate
      grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

    If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject
    wishes to request the restriction of the processing of personal data
    stored by the Labor Kotalla GbR, he or she may at any time contact any
    employee of the controller. The employee of the Labor Kotalla GbR will
    arrange the restriction of the processing.

  • f) Right to data portability

    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European
    legislator, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which
    was provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and
    machine-readable format. He or she shall have the right to transmit
    those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller
    to which the personal data have been provided, as long as the processing
    is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or
    point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to
    point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out
    by automated means, as long as the processing is not 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, in exercising his or her right to data portability
    pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the
    right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to
    another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely
    affect the rights and freedoms of others.

    In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject
    may at any time contact any employee of the Labor Kotalla GbR.

  • g) Right to object

    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European
    legislator to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular
    situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or
    her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR.
    This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

    The Labor Kotalla GbR 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 establishment,
    exercise or defence of legal claims.

    If the Labor Kotalla GbR processes personal data for direct marketing
    purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to
    processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing.
    This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such
    direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the Labor Kotalla GbR
    to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the Labor Kotalla GbR
    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 by the Labor Kotalla GbR for scientific or
    historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to
    Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the
    performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

    In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may
    contact any employee of the Labor Kotalla GbR. In addition, the data
    subject is free in the context of the use of information society
    services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her
    right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

  • h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

    Each data subject 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, as long as
    the decision (1) is not is necessary for entering into, or the
    performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data
    controller, or (2) is not authorised by Union or Member State law to
    which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable
    measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and
    legitimate interests, or (3) is not 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 a data
    controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject’s explicit consent,
    the Labor Kotalla GbR shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the
    data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least
    the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to
    express his or her point of view and contest the decision.

    If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning
    automated individual decision-making, he or she may, at any time,
    contact any employee of the Labor Kotalla GbR.

  • i) Right to withdraw data protection consent

    Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European
    legislator to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her
    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 any employee of the Labor
    Kotalla GbR.

7. Data protection provisions about the application and use of
Facebook

On this website, the controller has integrated components of the
enterprise Facebook. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an
online community, which usually allows users to communicate with each
other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a
platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the
Internet community to provide personal or business-related information.
Facebook allows social network users to include the creation of private
profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way,
Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a person lives outside of the
United States or Canada, the controller is the Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4
Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet
website, which is operated by the controller and into which a Facebook
component (Facebook plug-ins) was integrated, the web browser on the
information technology system of the data subject is automatically
prompted to download display of the corresponding Facebook component
from Facebook through the Facebook component. An overview of all the
Facebook Plug-ins may be accessed under
https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this
technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of what specific sub-site of
our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook,
Facebook detects with every call-up to our website by the data
subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet
site—which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the
data subject. This information is collected through the Facebook
component and associated with the respective Facebook account of the
data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons
integrated into our website, e.g. the “Like” button, or if the data
subject submits a comment, then Facebook matches this information with
the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores the
personal data.

Facebook always receives, through the Facebook component, information
about a visit to our website by the data subject, whenever the data
subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook during the time of the
call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the data
subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transmission
of information to Facebook is not desirable for the data subject, then
he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Facebook account
before a call-up to our website is made.

The data protection guideline published by Facebook, which is
available at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information
about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook.
In addition, it is explained there what setting options Facebook offers
to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, different
configuration options are made available to allow the elimination of
data transmission to Facebook. These applications may be used by the
data subject to eliminate a data transmission to Facebook.

8. Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing
operations for 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, when processing operations are necessary for the
supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based
on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing
operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual
measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products
or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which
processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of
tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to
protect the vital interests of the data subject or of 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 would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other
third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f
GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not
covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is
necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our
company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden
by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject
which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations
are particularly permissible because they have been specifically
mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate
interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the
controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

9. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third
party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f
GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of
the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.

10. Period for which the personal data will be stored

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data
is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that
period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no
longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation
of a contract.

11. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual
requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation
of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences
of failure to provide such data

We clarify 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 on the contractual partner).

Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data
subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be
processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us
with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her.
The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that
the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.

Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject
must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject
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 the consequences
of non-provision of the personal data.

12. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or
profiling.
