Data protection

1. Collection of personal data

Your personal data is entitled to special protection, which is why we attach great importance to conforming with all legal requirements. Personal data refers to individual information concerning personal or factual circumstances of a uniquely identifyable person. This includes name, address, date of birth, as well as telephone or fax numbers.

To ensure the best possible protection of your rights in view of applicable legislation, we inform you in the following about all data that is collected during your visit at our website. Any use of this data (if applicable) will also be described in the following.

In keeping with the German Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, abbreviated BDSG) and Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz, abbreviated TMG), we will collect, process and store your personal data exclusively for handling customer requests and (if applicable) for processing orders or contracts. Any additional use of your data outside of this scope requires your explicit consent. Art. 13 § 1 GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union, referred to in German as DSGVO = Datenschutz-Grundverordnung) stipulates that every service provider has to designate a person or entity that determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (so-called 'controller').

In our case, the controller is:

Ressmann's Residence e.K.
Owner: Katharina Ressmann
Kaiserstraße 87
D-66459 Kirkel
Phone: + 49 6849 9000-0
Fax: + 49 6849 9000-12

Your data is used exclusively in an anonymous form for statistical purposes.

2. Use of collected data
Any data we receive via a contact or order form on our homepage (whether entered by you or otherwise obtained) will be used only to process the corresponding request. It will be permanently deleted within 6 months of being processed, unless a longer storage period is required by law.

The data we collect is only passed on to a third party if this is necessary to fulfil our contractual obligations or to ensure a smooth procedure or if storage is otherwise legally required, particularly to process concluded contracts (e.g. relaying name and address to a delivery company).

The data is only used for the purposes stated upon your entry thereof and only to the extent authorized by you. Storage thereof is limited to the time necessary to fulfil our contractual obligations and the intended purpose, or as long as required by law. Use of personal data to process a concluded contract in the sense mentioned above is also necessary to protect our legitimate interest when we solicit a credit assessment. Such an assessment requires us to transmit personal data to a third party and gives us information on the probability of a shortfall in payment. It may contain probabilities that are scientifically computed, potentially using address data and so on. These probabilities are referred to as score values.

3. Responsible for video surveillance:

Günther Ressmann

Contact details of the data protection officer:

Video surveillance takes place for visual control and remote control of the doors. This is done on the basis of Art. 6 § 1 lit. f) GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union, referred to in German as DSGVO = Datenschutz-Grundverordnung). The video recordings are stored on the video server for 48 hours for cases of criminal acts or accidents. After that, they will be irrevocably deleted.

The data will only be passed on to third parties if we are legally obliged to do so. There is no transfer of data to third countries.

You have the right to request confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data relating to you is being processed; if this is the case, you have a right to information about this personal data and to the information listed in detail in Art. 15 GDPR .

You have the right to request from the controller the rectification of any inaccurate personal data concerning you without undue delay and, where applicable, the completion of any incomplete personal data (Art. 16 GDPR).

You have the right to demand from the controller that personal data concerning you be deleted without undue delay, provided that one of the reasons listed in detail in Art. 17 GDPR applies, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes pursued (right to erasure).

You have the right to request the controller to restrict processing if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 GDPR applies, e.g. if you have objected to the processing and it is not yet ascertained whether or not the legitimate grounds of the controller outweigh your reasons for objecting.

You have the right to object at any time to processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation. The controller will then no longer process your personal data unless they can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or need the data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. (Art. 21 GDPR)

You also have the right, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you maintain that the processing of your personal data infringes the GDPR (Art. 77 GDPR). You can assert this right at a supervisory authority in the member state of your place of residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
