Privacy policy

POLYSECURE GmbH is responsible for POLYSECURE’s entire international web presence. This data protection declaration applies to all websites operated by POLYSECURE. Please read these data protection guidelines carefully before using this website and all its subpages.

We recently updated our Privacy Policy to clarify how exactly we protect your personal information in complying with the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

DATA PROTECTION

Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of the Polysecure GmbH. The use of the Internet pages of the Polysecure GmbH 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 Polysecure GmbH. 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 Polysecure GmbH 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.

DEFINITIONS

The data protection declaration of the Polysecure GmbH 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.

 

 

 

 

 

Website content

The author accepts no responsibility for the currency, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author for pecuniary or non-pecuniary damage resulting from the use or non-use of the information provided or from the use of incorrect or incomplete information are excluded insofar as the author cannot be shown to have acted with wilful intent or gross negligence. All offers are without obligation and subject to change without notice. The author expressly reserves the right to vary, extend or delete part or all of the website without separate notice or to discontinue publication temporarily or permanently.

References and links

The author will be liable for direct or indirect references to third-party websites ("links") outside its responsibility only in the event that the author is aware of such content and, where the content is illegal, it would have been technically possible for the author to prevent its use and such prevention could reasonably have been expected. Please familiarise yourself with the data protection guidelines of third party websites before using them. The author hereby expressly states that no illegal content was apparent on the linked pages at the time the links were created. The author has no influence on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked/connected pages. Therefore, the author hereby dissociates itself from the content of all linked/connected pages which have been amended since the links were created. This statement applies to all links and references appearing in the author's own website content as well as to information entered by third parties into guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and in particular for damage resulting from the use or non-use of such information lies solely with the provider of the page linked to and not with the party merely referring to such publication via links.

Data protection
