Widerrufsbelehrung

Sie haben das Recht, binnen vierzehn Tagen ohne Angaben von Gründen diesen Vertrag zu widerrufen. 

Die Widerrufsfrist beträgt vierzehn Tage ab dem Tag des Vertragsabschlusses. 

Um Ihr Widerrufsrecht auszuüben, müssen Sie uns (Scalefree International GmbH, Bahnhofstr. 8, 30159 Hannover, , +49 (511) 879 89341, [email protected]) mittels einer eindeutigen Erklärung (z.B. ein mit der Post versandter Brief, Telefax oder E-Mail) über Ihren Entschluss, diesen Vertrag zu widerrufen, informieren.

Zur Wahrung der Widerrufsfrist reicht es aus, dass Sie die Mitteilung über die Ausübung des Widerrufsrechts vor Ablauf der Widerrufsfrist absenden. 

Folgen des Widerrufs 

Wenn Sie diesen Vertrag widerrufen, haben wir Ihnen alle Zahlungen, die wir von Ihnen erhalten haben, einschließlich der Lieferkosten (mit Ausnahme der zusätzlichen Kosten, die sich daraus ergeben, dass Sie eine andere Art der Lieferung als die von uns angebotene, günstige Standardlieferung gewählt haben), unverzüglich und spätestens binnen vierzehn Tagen ab dem Tag zurückzuzahlen, an dem die Mitteilung über Ihren Widerruf dieses Vertrags bei uns eingegangen ist. Für diese Rückzahlung verwenden wir dasselbe Zahlungsmittel, das Sie bei der ursprünglichen Transaktion eingesetzt haben, es sei denn, mit Ihnen wurde ausdrücklich etwas anderes vereinbart; in keinem Fall werden Ihnen wegen dieser Rückzahlung Entgelte berechnet. 

Haben Sie verlangt, dass die Dienstleistung während der Widerrufsfrist beginnen soll, so haben Sie uns einen angemessenen Betrag zu zahlen, der dem Anteil der bis zu dem Zeitpunkt, zu dem Sie uns von der Ausübung des Widerrufsrechts hinsichtlich dieses Vertrags unterrichten, bereits erbrachten Dienstleistungen im Vergleich zum Gesamtumfang der im Vertrag vorgesehenen Dienstleistungen entspricht. 

(2) Über das Muster-Widerrufsformular informiert der Anbieter nach der gesetzlichen Regelung wie folgt: 

Muster-Widerrufsformular

(Wenn Sie den Vertrag widerrufen wollen, dann füllen Sie bitte dieses Formular aus und senden Sie es zurück.)

— An Scalefree International GmbH, Bahnhofstr. 8, 30159 Hannover, +49 (511) 879 89341, [email protected]

— Hiermit widerrufe(n) ich/wir (*) den von mir/uns (*) abgeschlossenen Vertrag über den Kauf der folgenden Waren (*)/ die Erbringung der folgenden Dienstleistung (*)

— Bestellt am (*)/erhalten am (*)

— Name des/der Verbraucher(s) 

— Anschrift des/der Verbraucher(s) 

— Unterschrift des/der Verbraucher(s) (nur bei Mitteilung auf Papier) 

— Datum (*)

Unzutreffendes streichen 

(3) Das Widerrufsrecht erlischt vorzeitig, wenn die Scalefree International GmbH die Dienstleistung vollständig erbracht hat und mit der Ausführung der Dienstleistung erst begonnen hat, nachdem der Verbraucher dazu seine ausdrückliche Zustimmung gegeben hat und gleichzeitig seine Kenntnis davon bestätigt hat, dass er sein Widerrufsrecht bei vollständiger Vertragserfüllung durch die Scalefree International GmbH verliert.

§ 6 STORNIERUNG, ABSAGE 

Ist der Kunde kein Verbraucher oder ist die Widerrufsfrist gemäß § 4 abgelaufen, gelten die folgenden Bestimmungen (Absätze 1 und 2): 

(1) Der Kunde kann bis zu einer Kalenderwoche vor der Veranstaltung einen anderen Teilnehmer benennen. Hierzu ist eine entsprechende Mitteilung per E-Mail an [email protected], Fax an +49 (511) 879 89349 oder per Anruf unter +49 (511) 879 89341 erforderlich. 

(2) Stornierungen müssen bis spätestens zwei Kalenderwochen vor Beginn der Veranstaltung durch Mitteilung in Textform per E-Mail an [email protected], Fax an +49 (511) 879 89349 oder per Brief an die Scalefree International GmbH, Bahnhofstr. 8, 30159 Hannover, erfolgen. Sofern diese Frist bereits verstrichen ist, ist die Scalefree International GmbH berechtigt eine Stornogebühr von 30% einzufordern. Dem Kunden ist der Nachweis gestattet, dass durch die Stornierung kein oder ein geringerer Schaden entstanden ist. 

(3) Die Scalefree International GmbH ist berechtigt, Veranstaltungen aus begründetem Anlass (z.B. unverschuldeter Ausfall der/des Referenten, behördliche Anordnung, Gesundheitsschutz, höhere Gewalt) abzusagen (Rücktritt) oder räumlich zu verlegen, alternativ als Webinar durchzuführen und/ oder einen anderen Termin ersatzweise zu benennen. 

Ein wichtiger Grund liegt vor, wenn

  • für die jeweilige Veranstaltung 14 Tage vor Veranstaltungsbeginn die jeweilige Mindestteilnehmerzahl (30 TN) nicht erreicht wird,
  • der jeweilige Termin aus nicht von der Scalefree International GmbH zu vertretenden Gründen abgesagt werden muss. Diese sind insbesondere, aber nicht ausschließlich, Fälle höherer Gewalt (z.B. Pandemie) bzw. Behördliche Anordnungen, die eine planmäßige Durchführung der Veranstaltungen unmöglich machen.

(4) Die Scalefree International GmbH wird dem Kunden Absagen oder Änderungen unverzüglich mitteilen. Im Falle einer Absage werden bereits gezahlte Teilnehmergebühren im Rahmen der gesetzlichen Bestimmung des § 346 BGB unverzüglich erstattet. Die vertragliche Zahlungsverpflichtung entfällt. Für Schadensersatzansprüche des Kunden/Teilnehmers gilt § 9 (Haftung). 

(5) Ein Anspruch des Kunden auf Nachholung zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt besteht nicht.

(6) Das Recht zur außerordentlichen Kündigung aus wichtigem Grund bleibt unberührt. 

§ 7 GEISTIGES EIGENTUM 

Ohne die schriftliche Einwilligung der Scalefree International GmbH dürfen keine Teile aus Vorträgen, Dokumenten oder sonstigen Medien, die der Kunde bzw. der Teilnehmer im Rahmen der Veranstaltungsteilnahme erhält, reproduziert, verarbeitet, vervielfältigt, verbreitet oder zur öffentlichen Wiedergabe verwendet werden. Soweit Dokumente oder sonstige Medien genutzt werden, an denen Rechte Dritter bestehen, verbleiben diese Rechte beim jeweiligen Urheber bzw. Rechtsinhaber. Der Kunde bzw. der Teilnehmer erhält das nicht ausschließliche und nicht übertragbare Recht, die Dokumente so zu nutzen, wie es im Rahmen der Veranstaltung vorgesehen und zweckdienlich ist. Abweichungen von diesen Nutzungsregelungen bedürfen der ausdrücklichen schriftlichen Vereinbarung. 

§ 8 VERGÜTUNG UND ZAHLUNGSBEDINGUNGEN 

Sämtliche Preise sind Nettopreise, zuzüglich der gesetzlichen deutschen Mehrwertsteuer. Die Veranstaltungsgebühr ist im Voraus nach Erhalt der Rechnung sofort ohne Abzug fällig und in Euro zahlbar, sofern keine andere Vereinbarung getroffen wurde. 

§ 9 HAFTUNG 

(1) Bei Ausfall oder Absage einer Veranstaltung ohne Verschulden der Scalefree International GmbH, insbesondere durch Krankheit der Referenten besteht kein Anspruch auf die Durchführung der Veranstaltung. Die Scalefree International GmbH haftet insoweit nur für eine unverzügliche Information an den Kunden und die Teilnehmer auf einem der mitgeteilten Kommunikationswege.

(2) Ansprüche des Kunden auf Schadensersatz sind ausgeschlossen. Hiervon ausgenommen sind Schadensersatzansprüche des Kunden aus der Verletzung des Lebens, des Körpers, der Gesundheit oder aus der Verletzung wesentlicher Vertragspflichten (Kardinalpflichten) sowie die Haftung für Schäden, die auf einer vorsätzlichen oder grob fahrlässigen Pflichtverletzung der Scalefree International GmbH, ihrer gesetzlichen Vertreter oder Erfüllungsgehilfen beruhen. Wesentliche Vertragspflichten sind solche, deren Erfüllung zur Erreichung des Ziels des Vertrags notwendig ist, deren Erfüllung die ordnungsgemäße Durchführung des Vertrags überhaupt erst ermöglicht und auf deren Einhaltung der Vertragspartner regelmäßig vertrauen darf. 

(3) Bei der Verletzung wesentlicher Vertragspflichten haftet die Scalefree International GmbH nur auf den vertragstypischen, bei Vertragsschluss vorhersehbaren Schaden, wenn dieser einfach fahrlässig verursacht wurde, es sei denn, es handelt sich um Schadensersatzansprüche des Kunden aus einer Verletzung des Lebens, des Körpers oder der Gesundheit. 

(4) Die Einschränkungen der Absätze 1, 2 und 3 gelten auch zugunsten der gesetzlichen Vertreter und Erfüllungsgehilfen der Scalefree International GmbH, wenn Ansprüche direkt gegen diese geltend gemacht werden. 

(5) Die Vorschriften des Produkthaftungsgesetzes bleiben unberührt. Der Einwand des Mitverschuldens bleibt vorbehalten. 

§ 10 TEILUNWIRKSAMKEIT, SCHRIFTFORM

(1) Für den Fall, dass einzelne Bestimmungen des Veranstaltungsvertrags einschließlich dieser Allgemeinen Geschäftsbedingungen ganz oder teilweise unwirksam oder undurchführbar sind oder werden, oder für den Fall, dass der Veranstaltungsvertrag unbeabsichtigte Lücken enthält, wird dadurch die Wirksamkeit der übrigen Bestimmungen nicht berührt. Die Parteien verpflichten sich, anstelle der unwirksamen, undurchführbaren oder fehlenden Bestimmung eine solche wirksame und durchführbare Bestimmung zu vereinbaren, die unter Berücksichtigung des wirtschaftlichen Zwecks des Vertrages der unwirksamen, undurchführbaren oder fehlenden Bestimmung am nächsten kommt. Die Parteien sind verpflichtet, eine solche Bestimmung in gebotener Form, jedoch zumindest schriftlich, zu bestätigen.

(2) Änderungen und Ergänzungen dieses Vertrages bedürfen der Schriftform; dies gilt auch für eine Änderung des Schriftformerfordernisses selbst. 

§ 11 ANWENDBARES RECHT 

(1) Für sämtliche Rechtsbeziehungen der Parteien unter Einbeziehung dieser Bedingungen gilt das Recht der Bundesrepublik Deutschland unter Ausschluss der Gesetze über den internationalen Kauf beweglicher Waren. Diese Rechtswahl gilt auch für Verbraucherverträge, sofern die Bestimmungen der ROM-I-Verordnung nicht entgegenstehen. Die deutsche Fassung dieser Bedingungen gilt als rechtsverbindliche Fassung. Etwaige Übersetzungen in eine andere Sprache sind nicht rechtsverbindlich. 

(2) Ist der Kunde Kaufmann, juristische Person des öffentlichen Rechts oder öffentlich-rechtliches Sondervermögen, ist ausschließlicher Gerichtsstand für alle Streitigkeiten aus diesem Vertrag Hannover. Dasselbe gilt, wenn der Kunde keinen allgemeinen Gerichtsstand in Deutschland hat oder Wohnsitz oder gewöhnlicher Aufenthalt im Zeitpunkt der Klageerhebung nicht bekannt sind. Die Befugnis, auch das Gericht an einem anderen gesetzlichen Gerichtsstand anzurufen bleibt hiervon unberührt.

GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (GTC) EVENTS

General terms and conditions of Scalefree International GmbH for events. 

§ 1 GENERAL PROVISIONS 

The following general terms and conditions of Scalefree International GmbH apply to all services in the framework of events for business owners, consumers, legal persons under public law or special estates under public law (referred to in the following as “customers”). The inclusion of the customer’s general terms and conditions is rejected reserving any expressed written consent.

§ 2 CONCLUSION OF CONTRACT 

An event contract first comes into existence when registration is confirmed in writing. This will be done within 14 days after receipt of the registration in text form (by mail, fax, e-mail i.a.). The number of participants is limited. Registrations will be honored in the order in which they are received. If needed the participants’ data will be processed electronically; any such processing is for internal purposes only and only to the extent necessary to execute the contract.

§ 3 TYPE AND SCOPE OF SERVICE 

(1) Scalefree International GmbH offers events in our own facilities as well as in facilities to be agreed on with external service providers.

(2) In the case of events open to the public, a minimum of 30 participants are required. The number of participants as a rule may not exceed the number of registered participants. If persons who are not registered are in the room, the event organisator  is authorized in each case to eject these persons from the room and to interrupt or delay the completion of the event until the persons in question leave the room. A person who is provided access to the content of the event by means of remote communication (e.g. Skype), is deemed in this case to be present in the room. During the event, documents and materials can be distributed to the participants to the extent that nothing else is agreed to. The materials are included in the cost of the event. 

(3) The organization of travel to the event site and any necessary hotel stays is entirely the responsibility of and at cost to the customer or the participant. In the case of a no-fault no-show or withdrawal of the event, claims to reimbursement are excluded (see also § 9 Liability). 

§ 4 DATA PRIVACY

(1) The processing of personal data is carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations (e.g. General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO)).

(2) We would like to draw your attention to our data protection information. You can find the information about the processing of your personal data for paid events under https://www.scalefree.com/privacy-policy-for-paid-events/https://www.scalefree.com/privacy/

and for free events under https://www.scalefree.com/privacy-policy-for-webinars-and-free-events/

§ 5 NOTICE OF RIGHT TO WITHDRAW 

(1) When concluding a distance selling transaction, consumers have a legal right of withdrawal concerning which Scalefree International GmbH provides the legally required information below. The sample withdrawal form is found in Paragraph (2). 

Notice of Right to Withdraw

Right to withdraw 

You have the right to withdraw from this contract within fourteen days without stating any grounds. 

The notice period for withdrawal is fourteen days from the date on which the contract is concluded. 

In order to exercise your right to withdraw , you must inform us (Scalefree International GmbH, Bahnhofstr. 8, 30159 Hannover, , +49 (511) 879 89341, [email protected]) by means of a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by mail, a fax or an e-mail) of your decision to withdraw from this contract. You may use the sample withdrawal form, but this is not required. 

To observe the withdrawal notice period, it suffices that you send the communication of your intent to exercise the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period expires. 

Consequences of withdrawal

If you withdraw from this contract, we must repay you all of the payments that we have received from you including the delivery costs (with the exception of added costs that result from your selecting a different form of delivery than the one we offered as inexpensive standard delivery), without delay and at the latest within fourteen days of the date on which we receive the communication concerning your withdrawal from this contract. We will use the same mode of payment for this repayment that you used in the original transaction unless something different was expressly arranged with you; under no circumstances will you be credited for any compensation with this repayment.

If you requested that the service begin during the withdrawal notice period, you must pay us a reasonable sum that corresponds to the share of the services we already completed through the date on which you notified us of your decision to exercise your right to withdraw with respect to this contract as a percentage of the total services provided for in the contract. 

(2) The provider complies with provisions of law by providing you with the following sample withdrawal form: 

Sample withdrawal form 

(If you want to withdraw from the contract, fill this form out and send it back.) 

—To Scalefree International GmbH, Bahnhofstr. 8, 30159 Hannover, +49 (511) 879 89341, [email protected]

— I/we (*) hereby withdraw from the contract concluded with me/us(*) 

For the purchase of the following goods (*)/ the performance of the following service (*)

— ordered on (*)/received on (*) 

— Name of the consumer(s) 

— Address of the consumer(s) 

— signature of the consumer(s) (only for paper notifications)

— Date 

(*) mark through the inapplicable option

(3) The right of withdrawal is voided before term if Scalefree International GmbH has completed the service entirely and only began to execute the service after the consumer had given his/their expressed consent and at the same time confirm that he/they/were aware that the right of withdrawal is voided once the contract has been completely fulfilled by Scalefree International GmbH.

§ 6 CANCELLATION 

If the customer is not a consumer or if the withdrawal notice period according to § 4 is expired, the following provisions apply (Paragraphs 1 and 2):

(1) The customer can name another participant up to one calendar week before the event. To do this, it is necessary to send a communication to this effect via e-mail to [email protected], fax to +49 (511) 879 89349 or telephone +49 (511) 879 89341. 

(2) Cancellations must be communicated at the latest two calendar weeks before the start of the event by means of a communication in text form by e-mail to [email protected], fax to +49 (511) 879 89349 or by letter to Scalefree International GmbH, Bahnhofstr. 8, 30159 Hannover. If this period has already expired, Scalefree International GmbH is entitled to claim a cancellation fee of 30%. The customer is permitted to demonstrate that the cancellation caused lesser or no loss. 

(3) Scalefree International GmbH is entitled to cancel (withdraw from) event for a justified reason (e.g. no-fault absence of the presenters, government order, health protection or force majeure) or to relocate them, alternatively hold a webinar and/or name a different date as a substitute. 

An important reason exists if

  • the required minimum number of participants for the respective event is not reached 14 days prior to the start of the event,
  • the respective date has to be cancelled for reasons Scalefree International GmbH is not responsible for. These are in particular, but not exclusively, cases of force majeure (e.g. pandemic) or governmental orders that make a planned realization of the events impossible.

(4) Scalefree International GmbH will notify the customer of any cancellation changes immediately. In the event that it is canceled, any event fees already paid will be immediately reimbursed in accordance with applicable provisions of law under § 346 BGB. The contractual payment obligation is void. § 9 (Liability) applies to any claims to compensation for damages from the customer/participant. 

(5) There is no entitlement of the customer to replacement at a later point in time.

(6) The right to extraordinary cancellation for due and sufficient cause remains in effect. 

§ 7 INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY 

Absent the written consent of Scalefree International GmbH, no parts of presentations, documents or other media that are received by the customer or participant in the framework of participation in the event may be reproduced, edited, disseminated, distributed or used for public presentation. To the extent that documents or other media are used to which third parties have rights, these rights are held by the respective originator or rights holder. The customer and/or the participant receives the non-exclusive and non-transferrable right to use the documents as provided for in the framework of the event and to that purpose only. Deviations from these terms of use require an expressed written agreement.

§ 8 COMPENSATION AND TERMS OF PAYMENT 

All prices are net prices plus the legally mandated German VAT. The training fee is due and payable in advance on receipt of the billing statement, immediately and without discounts, in Euro, to the extent that no other agreement is made. 

§ 9 LIABILITY 

(1) In the event that an event is either canceled or called off for reasons for which Scalefree International GmbH cannot be responsible, especially due to the speakers becoming ill, there is no claim to carrying out the event. Scalefree International GmbH is liable in this case only to immediately inform the customer and participants using one of the means of communication mentioned. 

(2) Claims by the customer to compensate for damages are excluded. This excludes claims to compensation for damages brought by the customer for injury to life, limb or health or breach of essential contractual obligations (cardinal obligations) as well as liability for damages arising from intentional or grossly negligent breach of contract by Scalefree International GmbH, its legal representatives or temporary employees. Essential contractual obligations are those whose fulfillment is absolutely necessary to attain the objective of the contract, whose fulfillment is a fundamental precondition to the proper completion of the contract and on whose fulfillment the contract partner may regularly rely.

(3) On breach of essential contractual obligations, Scalefree International GmbH is liable only for the types of damages typical to contracts of this kind and foreseeable at the time the contract was concluded, if they are the result of simple negligence, unless the customer’s claim to compensation for damages derives from injury to life, limb or health. 

(4) The limitations of Paragraphs 1, 2 and 3 apply in favor of the legal representatives and temporary employees of Scalefree International GmbH, if claims are asserted against them directly. 

(5) The provisions of the Product Liability Act remain in effect. The objection of joint culpability is reserved. 

§ 10 SEVERABILITY CLAUSE, REQUIREMENT OF WRITTEN FORM 

(1) In the event that individual provisions of the training contract including these General Terms and Conditions prove or become partly or wholly unenforceable or unfeasible, or in the event that the training contract contains unintended loopholes, this will not compromise the enforceability of the remaining provisions. The parties commit to agree on an enforceable and feasible provision in place of the unenforceable, unfeasible or missing provision that will most closely approximate the unenforceable, unfeasible or missing provision with all due consideration for the commercial purpose of the contract. The parties are obligated to confirm such a provision in the required form, at least in writing. 

(2) Changes and amendments to this contract must be made in writing; this applies to any change to the requirement of written form as well. 

§ 11 APPLICABLE LAW 

(1) For all legal relationships between the parties, including these terms and conditions, the law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies excluding the laws concerning the international purchase of moveable goods. This choice of laws applies for consumer contracts, to the extent that the provisions of the ROM-I-Ordinance do not contradict it. The German version of these terms and conditions is the legally binding version. Any translations into other languages are not legally binding. 

(2) If the customer is a merchant, legal person under public law or special estate under public law, the sole court of jurisdiction for all legal disputes arising from this contract is Hannover. The same applies if the customer does not have a general court of jurisdiction in Germany or if residence or habitual domicile are not known at the time the complaint is brought. The right to appeal to the court in another jurisdiction remains in effect.

Im Falle einer Absage werden bereits gezahlte Schulungsgebühren im Rahmen der gesetzlichen Bestimmung des § 346 BGB unverzüglich erstattet. Die vertragliche Zahlungsverpflichtung entfällt. Für Schadensersatzansprüche des Kunden/Teilnehmers gilt § 9 (Haftung). 

(7) Für den Fall, dass bei einer inhouse durchgeführten Schulung die Teilnehmerzahl die Zahl der angemeldeten Teilnehmer überschreitet, der jeweilige Schulungsleiter vom Recht gemäß § 3 Abs. 2 dieser AGB Gebrauch macht und die Unterbrechung oder Verzögerung dazu führt, dass die Schulung voraussichtlich nicht mehr in der vorgesehenen Zeit angemessen durchgeführt werden kann, sind die Scalefree International GmbH sowie der jeweilige Schulungsleiter berechtigt, die Durchführung der Schulung abzubrechen und das Vertragsverhältnis fristlos zu kündigen. Ein Anspruch des Kunden auf Nachholung zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt besteht nicht. Im Falle eines solchen Abbruchs ist die Scalefree International GmbH berechtigt, eine angemessene Vergütung für die Vorbereitung der Schulung und etwaige bereits durchgeführte Schulungsteile zu verlangen. 

(8) Das Recht zur außerordentlichen Kündigung aus wichtigem Grund bleibt unberührt. 

§ 8 GEISTIGES EIGENTUM 

Ohne die schriftliche Einwilligung der Scalefree International GmbH dürfen keine Teile von Dokumenten oder sonstigen Medien, die der Kunde bzw. der Teilnehmer im Rahmen der Schulungsteilnahme erhält, reproduziert, verarbeitet, vervielfältigt, verbreitet oder zur öffentlichen Wiedergabe verwendet werden. Soweit Dokumente oder sonstige Medien genutzt werden, an denen Rechte Dritter bestehen, verbleiben diese Rechte beim jeweiligen Urheber bzw. Rechtsinhaber.

Abweichungen von diesen Nutzungsregelungen bedürfen der ausdrücklichen schriftlichen Vereinbarung. 

§ 9 VERGÜTUNG UND ZAHLUNGSBEDINGUNGEN 

Sämtliche Preise sind Nettopreise, zuzüglich der gesetzlichen deutschen Mehrwertsteuer. Die Schulungsgebühr ist im Voraus nach Erhalt der Rechnung sofort ohne Abzug fällig und in Euro zahlbar, sofern keine andere Vereinbarung getroffen wurde. Die Abrechnung erfolgt bei inhouse durchgeführten Schulungen nach der Zahl der angemeldeten Teilnehmer bzw. nach Vereinbarung. Bleibt die Zahl der Teilnehmer hinter der Zahl der angemeldeten Teilnehmer zurück erfolgt keine Reduzierung bzw. Erstattung der Schulungsgebühr. Übersteigt die Zahl der Teilnehmer die Zahl der angemeldeten Teilnehmer gelten § 3 (2) und § 6 (4) dieser AGB, sofern über eine Erhöhung der Schulungsgebühr keine Einigung erzielt werden kann. 

§ 10 HAFTUNG 

(1) Bei Ausfall oder Absage einer Schulung ohne Verschulden der Scalefree International GmbH, insbesondere durch Krankheit des Schulungsleiters besteht kein Anspruch auf die Durchführung der Schulung. Die Scalefree International GmbH haftet insoweit nur für eine unverzügliche Information an den Kunden und die Teilnehmer auf einem der mitgeteilten Kommunikationswege.

(2) Ansprüche des Kunden auf Schadensersatz sind ausgeschlossen. Hiervon ausgenommen sind Schadensersatzansprüche des Kunden aus der Verletzung des Lebens, des Körpers, der Gesundheit oder aus der Verletzung wesentlicher Vertragspflichten (Kardinalpflichten) sowie die Haftung für Schäden, die auf einer vorsätzlichen oder grob fahrlässigen Pflichtverletzung der Scalefree International GmbH, ihrer gesetzlichen Vertreter oder Erfüllungsgehilfen beruhen. Wesentliche Vertragspflichten sind solche, deren Erfüllung zur Erreichung des Ziels des Vertrags notwendig ist, deren Erfüllung die ordnungsgemäße Durchführung des Vertrags überhaupt erst ermöglicht und auf deren Einhaltung der Vertragspartner regelmäßig vertrauen darf. 

(3) Bei der Verletzung wesentlicher Vertragspflichten haftet die Scalefree International GmbH nur auf den vertragstypischen, bei Vertragsschluss vorhersehbaren Schaden, wenn dieser einfach fahrlässig verursacht wurde, es sei denn, es handelt sich um Schadensersatzansprüche des Kunden aus einer Verletzung des Lebens, des Körpers oder der Gesundheit. 

(4) Die Einschränkungen der Absätze 1, 2 und 3 gelten auch zugunsten der gesetzlichen Vertreter und Erfüllungsgehilfen der Scalefree International GmbH, wenn Ansprüche direkt gegen diese geltend gemacht werden. 

(5) Die Vorschriften des Produkthaftungsgesetzes bleiben unberührt. Der Einwand des Mitverschuldens bleibt vorbehalten.

(1) Für den Fall, dass einzelne Bestimmungen des Schulungsvertrages einschließlich dieser Allgemeinen Geschäftsbedingungen ganz oder teilweise unwirksam oder undurchführbar sind oder werden, oder für den Fall, dass der Schulungsvertrag unbeabsichtigte Lücken enthält, wird dadurch die Wirksamkeit der übrigen Bestimmungen nicht berührt. Die Parteien verpflichten sich, anstelle der unwirksamen, undurchführbaren oder fehlenden Bestimmung eine solche wirksame und durchführbare Bestimmung zu vereinbaren, die unter Berücksichtigung des wirtschaftlichen Zwecks des Vertrages der unwirksamen, undurchführbaren oder fehlenden Bestimmung am nächsten kommt. Die Parteien sind verpflichtet, eine solche Bestimmung in gebotener Form, jedoch zumindest schriftlich, zu bestätigen.

GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (GTC) TRAINING

General terms and conditions of Scalefree International GmbH for training courses. 

§ 1 GENERAL PROVISIONS 

The following general terms and conditions of Scalefree International GmbH apply to all services in the framework of training courses (in-house and public) for business owners, consumers, legal persons under public law or special estates under public law (referred to in the following as “customers”). The inclusion of the customer’s general terms and conditions is rejected reserving any expressed written consent.

§ 2 CONCLUSION OF CONTRACT 

A training contract first comes into existence when registration is confirmed in writing. This will be done within 14 days after receipt of the registration in text form (by mail, fax, e-mail i.a.). The number of participants is limited. Registrations will be honored in the order in which they are received. If needed the participants’ data will be processed electronically; any such processing is for internal purposes only and only to the extent necessary to execute the contract.

§ 3 TYPE AND SCOPE OF SERVICE 

(1) Scalefree International GmbH offers training courses, especially data-vault-training courses and other IT-training courses (both in-house as well as public) in our own facilities as well as in facilities to be agreed on with the customer.

(2) To the extent that nothing else is agreed on, the training courses will always take place from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. o’clock. In the case training courses open to the public, a minimum of 8 participants are required. The number of participants as a rule may not exceed the number of registered participants. If persons who are not registered are in the room, the lead trainer is authorized in each case to eject these persons from the room and to interrupt or delay the completion of the training until the persons in question leave the room. A person who is provided access to the content of the training course by means of remote communication (e.g. Skype), is deemed in this case to be present in the room. In the course of the training, training documents and hand-outs will be distributed to the course participants to the extent that nothing else is agreed to. The training documents and hand-outs are included in the cost of the training course. The participants in the training course will receive a personalized certificate of participation.

(3) For training courses that are held in facilities arranged and agreed on with the customer, the customer will make sure that the required infrastructure is on-hand (specifically overhead/LCD projector, whiteboard, flipchart, in each case matching pens). 

(4) The organization of travel to the course site and any necessary hotel stays is entire the responsibility of and at cost to the customer or the participant. In the case of a no-fault no-show or withdrawal of the training course, claims to reimbursement are excluded (see also § 9 Liability). 

§ 4 DATA PRIVACY

(1) The processing of personal data is carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations (e.g. General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)).

(2) We would like to draw your attention to our data protection information. You can find the information about the processing of your personal data under https://www.scalefree.com/privacy-policy-for-trainings/

§ 5 DATA DISCLOSURE

(1) With the registration for a Data Vault 2.0 Boot Camp or an Introduction to Data Vault 2.0, first and last name, as well as the email address of the customer are transmitted by Scalefree International GmbH to the Data Vault Alliance (hereinafter referred to as DVA) including account creation for the purpose of providing preparation videos for the planned training. As a result, the customer receives an invitation to the platform via email and is encouraged to watch these videos to prepare for the training. 

For more information, please check our privacy policy.

§ 6 NOTICE OF RIGHT TO WITHDRAW 

(1) When concluding a distance selling transaction, consumers have a legal right of withdrawal concerning which Scalefree International GmbH provides the legally required information below. The sample withdrawal form is found in Paragraph (2). 

Notice of Right to Withdraw

Right to withdraw 

You have the right to withdraw from this contract within fourteen days without stating any grounds. 

The notice period for withdrawal is fourteen days from the date on which the contract is concluded. 

In order to exercise your right to withdraw, you must inform us (Scalefree International GmbH, Bahnhofstr. 8, 30159 Hannover, +49 (511) 879 89341, [email protected]) by means of a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by mail, a fax or an e-mail) of your decision to withdraw from this contract. You may use the sample withdrawal form, but this is not required. 

To observe the withdrawal notice period, it suffices that you send the communication of your intent to exercise the right of withdrawal before the withdrawal period expires. 

Consequences of withdrawal

If you withdraw from this contract, we must repay you all of the payments that we have received from you including the delivery costs (with the exception of added costs that result from your selecting a different form of delivery than the one we offered as inexpensive standard delivery), without delay and at the latest within fourteen days of the date on which we receive the communication concerning your withdrawal from this contract. We will use the same mode of payment for this repayment that you used in the original transaction unless something different was expressly arranged with you; under no circumstances will you be credited for any compensation with this repayment. 

If you requested that the service begin during the withdrawal notice period, you must pay us a reasonable sum that corresponds to the share of the services we already completed through the date on which you notified us of your decision to exercise your right to withdraw with respect to this contract as a percentage of the total services provided for in the contract. 

(2) The provider complies with provisions of law by providing you with the following sample withdrawal form: 

Sample withdrawal form 

(If you want to withdraw from the contract, fill this form out and send it back.) 

—To Scalefree International GmbH, Bahnhofstr. 8, 30159 Hannover, +49 (511) 879 89341, [email protected]

— I/we (*) hereby withdraw from the contract concluded with me/us(*) 

For the purchase of the following goods (*)/ the performance of the following service (*)

— ordered on (*)/received on (*) 

— Name of the consumer(s) 

— Address of the consumer(s) 

— signature of the consumer(s) (only for paper notifications)

— Date 

(*) mark through the inapplicable option

(3) The right of withdrawal is voided before term if Scalefree International GmbH has completed the service entirely and only began to execute the service after the consumer had given his/their expressed consent and at the same time confirm that he/they/were aware that the right of withdrawal is voided once the contract has been completely fulfilled by Scalefree International GmbH.

§ 7 CANCELLATION 

If the customer is not a consumer or if the withdrawal notice period according to § 5 is expired, the following provisions apply:

(1) The customer who cancels their registration 21 or more business days prior to the start of the scheduled training course and has not accessed the Day 1 introductory videos on DVA will be offered rescheduling to a later training or a full refund of the course fee less processing fees.

(2) Customers who cancel their registration more than 14 but less than 21 days prior to the start of the course and have not accessed the Day 1 introductory videos on DVA will be offered a 50% refund of the course fee, less processing fees.

(3) No refunds will be available for customers who (a) cancel their registration within 14 days prior to the start of the course, or (b) have already accessed the Day 1 introductory videos on the DVA, or (c) have the course materials for which Scalefree has a delivery receipt sent to them, or (d) do not attend the course.

(4) The customer can name a different participant for the training course through the first day of the training course. To do this, it is necessary to send a communication to this effect via e-mail to [email protected], fax to +49 (511) 879 89349 or telephone +49 (511) 879 89341. 

(5) The customer is permitted to demonstrate that the cancellation caused lesser or no loss. 

 

(6) Scalefree International GmbH is entitled to cancel (withdraw from) training courses for a justified reason (e.g. no-fault absence of the trainer/presenter especially in cases of illness or too few registered participants, i.e. fewer than 8 participants for public training courses, force majeure) or to re-locate them and/or name a different date as a substitute. Scalefree International GmbH will notify the customer of any cancellation changes immediately. In the event that it is cancelled, any training fees already paid will be immediately reimbursed in accord with applicable provisions of law under § 346 BGB. The contractual payment obligation is void. § 9 (Liability) applies to any claims to compensation for damages from the customer/participant. 

(7) In the event that the number of participants in an in-house training course exceeds the number of registered participants, the trainer in each case has the right to exercise the provisions under § 3 Para. 2 of these GTCs; and if the interruption or delay makes it likely impossible to complete the training course in the time provided for it, Scalefree International GmbH and the trainer are entitled to halt the execution of the training course and terminate the contractual relationship without notice. The customer has no claim to a make-up course at a later date. In the event of such a termination, Scalefree International GmbH is entitled to demand a reasonable compensation for the preparation for the training course and any portions of training already completed.

(8) The right to extraordinary cancellation for due and sufficient cause remains in effect. 

§ 8 INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY 

Absent the written consent of Scalefree International GmbH, no parts of documents or other media that are received by the customer or participant in the framework of participation in the training course may be reproduced, edited, disseminated, distributed or used for public presentation. To the extent that documents or other media are used to which third parties have rights, these rights are held by the respective originator or rights holder. The customer and/or the participant receives the non-exclusive and non-transferrable right to use the documents as provided for in the framework of the training course and to that purpose only. Deviations from these terms of use require an expressed written agreement.

§ 9 COMPENSATION AND TERMS OF PAYMENT 

All prices are net prices plus the legally mandated German VAT. The training fee is due and payable in advance on receipt of the billing statement, immediately and without discounts, in Euro, to the extent that no other agreement is made. Billing for in-house training courses is completed based on the number of registered participants and/or the agreement. If the number of actual participants falls below the number of registered participants, this does not result in any reduction or reimbursement of the training fees. If the number of actual participants exceeds the number of registered participants, § 3 (2) and § 6 (4) of these GTCs apply, to the extent that no agreement can be reached on an increase in the training fee. 

§ 10 LIABILITY 

(1) In the event that a training course is either cancelled or called off for reasons for which Scalefree International GmbH cannot be responsible, especially due to a trainer becoming ill, there is no claim to carrying out the training course. Scalefree International GmbH is liable in this case only to immediately inform the customer and participants using one of the means of communication mentioned. 

(2) Claims by the customer to compensation for damages are excluded. This excludes claims to compensation for damages brought by the customer for injury to life, limb or health or breach of essential contractual obligations (cardinal obligations) as well as liability for damages arising from intentional or grossly negligent breach of contract by Scalefree International GmbH, its legal representatives or temporary employees. Essential contractual obligations are those whose fulfilment is absolutely necessary to attain the objective of the contract, whose fulfilment is a fundamental precondition to the proper completion of the contract and on whose fulfilment the contract partner may regularly rely.

(3) On breach of essential contractual obligations, Scalefree International GmbH is liable only for the types of damages typical to contracts of this kind and foreseeable at the time the contract was concluded, if they are the result of simple negligence, unless the customer’s claim to compensation for damages derives from injury to life, limb or health. 

(4) The limitations of Paragraphs 1, 2 and 3 apply in favor of the legal representatives and temporary employees of Scalefree International GmbH, if claims are asserted against them directly. 

(5) The provisions of the Product Liability Act remain in effect. The objection of joint culpability is reserved. 

§ 11 SEVERABILITY CLAUSE, REQUIREMENT OF WRITTEN FORM 

(1) In the event that individual provisions of the training contract including these General Terms and Conditions prove or become partly or wholly unenforceable or unfeasible, or in the event that the training contract contains unintended loopholes, this will not compromise the enforceability of the remaining provisions. The parties commit to agree on an enforceable and feasible provision in place of the unenforceable, unfeasible or missing provision that will most closely approximate the unenforceable, unfeasible or missing provision with all due consideration for the commercial purpose of the contract. The parties are obligated to confirm such a provision in the required form, at least in writing. 

(2) Changes and amendments to this contract must be made in writing; this applies to any change to the requirement of written form as well. 

§ 12 APPLICABLE LAW 

(1) For all legal relationships between the parties, including these terms and conditions, the law of the Federal Republic of Germany applies excluding the laws concerning the international purchase of moveable goods. This choice of laws applies for consumer contracts, to the extent that the provisions of the ROM-I-Ordinance do not contradict it. The German version of these terms and conditions is the legally binding version. Any translations into other languages are not legally binding. 

(2) If the customer is a merchant, legal person under public law or special estate under public law, the sole court of jurisdiction for all legal disputes arising from this contract is Hannover. The same applies if the customer does not have a general court of jurisdiction in Germany or if residence or habitual domicile are not known at the time the complaint is brought. The right to appeal to the court in another jurisdiction remains in effect.

Right of objection and revocation

If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you may revoke this consent at any time. Such revocation affects the permissibility of processing your personal data after you have expressed it to us.

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 Scalefree International GmbH. The use of the Internet pages of the Scalefree International 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 Scalefree International 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 Scalefree International 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 Scalefree International 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:

  • 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.

  • DATA SUBJECT

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

  • 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.

  • RESTRICTION OF PROCESSING

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • PROCESSOR

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

COOKIES

The Internet pages of the Scalefree International GmbH 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 Scalefree International GmbH 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.

COLLECTION OF GENERAL DATA AND INFORMATION

The website of the Scalefree International GmbH 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 Scalefree International GmbH 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 Scalefree International GmbH 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.

REGISTRATION ON OUR WEBSITE

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller with the indication of personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller, and for his own purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or more processors (e.g. a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the controller.

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address—assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed offenses. Insofar, the storage of this data is necessary to secure the controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary indication of personal data, is intended to enable the controller to offer the data subject contents or services that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to change the personal data specified during the registration at any time, or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the controller.

The data controller shall, at any time, provide information upon request to each data subject as to what personal data are stored about the data subject. In addition, the data controller shall correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. The entirety of the controller’s employees are available to the data subject in this respect as contact persons.

SUBSCRIPTION TO OUR NEWSLETTERS

On the website of the Scalefree International GmbH, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise’s newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.

The Scalefree International GmbH informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The enterprise’s newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is authorized to receive the newsletter.

During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way.

NEWSLETTER-TRACKING

The newsletter of the Scalefree International GmbH contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the Scalefree International GmbH may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.

Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. The Scalefree International GmbH automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

CONTACT POSSIBILITY VIA THE WEBSITE

The website of the Scalefree International GmbH contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.

COMMENTS FUNCTION IN THE BLOG ON THE WEBSITE

The Scalefree International GmbH offers users the possibility to leave individual comments on individual blog contributions on a blog, which is on the website of the controller. A blog is a web-based, publicly-accessible portal, through which one or more people called bloggers or web-bloggers may post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blogposts. Blogposts may usually be commented by third parties.

If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, the comments made by the data subject are also stored and published, as well as information on the date of the commentary and on the user’s (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject. In addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the data subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons, and in case the data subject violates the rights of third parties, or posts illegal content through a given comment. The storage of these personal data is, therefore, in the own interest of the data controller, so that he can exculpate in the event of an infringement. This collected personal data will not be passed to third parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the aim of the defense of the data controller.

SUBSCRIPTION TO COMMENTS IN THE BLOG ON THE WEBSITE

The comments made in the blog of the Scalefree International GmbH may be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, there is the possibility that a commenter subscribes to the comments following his comments on a particular blog post.

If a data subject decides to subscribe to the option, the controller will send an automatic confirmation e-mail to check the double opt-in procedure as to whether the owner of the specified e-mail address decided in favor of this option. The option to subscribe to comments may be terminated at any time.

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 data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant by the controller, the application documents shall be automatically erased two months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller are opposed to the erasure. Other legitimate interest in this relation is, e.g. a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

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.

DATA PROTECTION PROVISIONS ABOUT THE APPLICATION AND USE OF GOOGLE ADSENSE

On this website, the controller has integrated Google AdSense. Google AdSense is an online service which allows the placement of advertising on third-party sites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that selects advertisements displayed on third-party sites to match with the content of the respective third-party site. Google AdSense allows an interest-based targeting of the Internet user, which is implemented by means of generating individual user profiles.

The operating company of Google’s AdSense component is Alphabet Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

The purpose of Google’s AdSense component is the integration of advertisements on our website. Google AdSense places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Alphabet Inc. is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google AdSense component is integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google AdSense component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Alphabet Inc. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Alphabet Inc. gains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Alphabet Inc., inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently create commission settlements.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. Additionally, cookies already in use by Alphabet Inc. may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in web pages to enable a log file recording and a log file analysis through which a statistical analysis may be performed. Based on the embedded tracking pixels, Alphabet Inc. is able to determine if and when a website was opened by a data subject, and which links were clicked on by the data subject. Tracking pixels serve, inter alia, to analyze the flow of visitors on a website.

Through Google AdSense, personal data and information—which also includes the IP address, and is necessary for the collection and accounting of the displayed advertisements—is transmitted to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. These personal data will be stored and processed in the United States of America. The Alphabet Inc. may disclose the collected personal data through this technical procedure to third parties.

Google AdSense is further explained under the following link https://www.google.com/intl/en/adsense/start/.

DATA PROTECTION PROVISIONS ABOUT THE APPLICATION AND USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS (WITH ANONYMIZATION FUNCTION)

On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the application “_gat. _anonymizeIp”. By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.

In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to a collection of data that are generated by Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the data subject must download a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and information about the visits of Internet pages may not be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-ons is considered an objection by Google. If the information technology system of the data subject is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the data subject must reinstall the browser add-ons to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on was uninstalled by the data subject or any other person who is attributable to their sphere of competence, or is disabled, it is possible to execute the reinstallation or reactivation of the browser add-ons.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.

DATA PROTECTION PROVISIONS ABOUT THE APPLICATION AND USE OF GOOGLE+

On this website, the controller has integrated the Google+ button as a component. Google+ is a so-called social network. A social network is a social meeting place 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. Google+ allows users of the social network to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos and network through friend requests.

The operating company of Google+ is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google+ button has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject automatically downloads a display of the corresponding Google+ button of Google through the respective Google+ button component. During the course of this technical procedure, Google is made aware of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

More detailed information about Google+ is available under https://developers.google.com/+/.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time to Google+, Google recognizes with each call-up to our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of his or her stay on our Internet site, which specific sub-pages of our Internet page were visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the Google+ button and Google matches this with the respective Google+ account associated with the data subject.

If the data subject clicks on the Google+ button integrated on our website and thus gives a Google+ 1 recommendation, then Google assigns this information to the personal Google+ user account of the data subject and stores the personal data. Google stores the Google+ 1 recommendation of the data subject, making it publicly available in accordance with the terms and conditions accepted by the data subject in this regard. Subsequently, a Google+ 1 recommendation given by the data subject on this website together with other personal data, such as the Google+ account name used by the data subject and the stored photo, is stored and processed on other Google services, such as search-engine results of the Google search engine, the Google account of the data subject or in other places, e.g. on Internet pages, or in relation to advertisements. Google is also able to link the visit to this website with other personal data stored on Google. Google further records this personal information with the purpose of improving or optimizing the various Google services.

Through the Google+ button, Google receives information that the data subject visited our website, if the data subject at the time of the call-up to our website is logged in to Google+. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks or doesn’t click on the Google+ button.

If the data subject does not wish to transmit personal data to Google, he or she may prevent such transmission by logging out of his Google+ account before calling up our website.

Further information and the data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. More references from Google about the Google+ 1 button may be obtained under https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy.

DATA PROTECTION PROVISIONS ABOUT THE APPLICATION AND USE OF GOOGLE-ADWORDS

On this website, the controller has integrated Google AdWords. Google AdWords is a service for Internet advertising that allows the advertiser to place ads in Google search engine results and the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define specific keywords with the help of which an ad on Google’s search results only then displayed, when the user utilizes the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. In the Google Advertising Network, the ads are distributed on relevant web pages using an automatic algorithm, taking into account the previously defined keywords.

The operating company of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.

The purpose of Google AdWords is the promotion of our website by the inclusion of relevant advertising on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of the search engine Google and an insertion of third-party advertising on our website.

If a data subject reaches our website via a Google ad, a conversion cookie is filed on the information technology system of the data subject through Google. The definition of cookies is explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after 30 days and is not used to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to check whether certain sub-pages, e.g, the shopping cart from an online shop system, were called up on our website. Through the conversion cookie, both Google and the controller can understand whether a person who reached an AdWords ad on our website generated sales, that is, executed or canceled a sale of goods.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are used in order to determine the total number of users who have been served through AdWords ads to ascertain the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads in the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the data subject.

The conversion cookie stores personal information, e.g. the Internet pages visited by the data subject. Each time we visit our Internet pages, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as stated above, by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie set by Google AdWords may be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

The data subject has a possibility of objecting to the interest based advertisement of Google. Therefore, the data subject must access from each of the browsers in use the link www.google.de/settings/ads and set the desired settings.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

DATA PROTECTION PROVISIONS ABOUT THE APPLICATION AND USE OF LINKEDIN

The controller has integrated components of the LinkedIn Corporation on this website. LinkedIn is a web-based social network that enables users with existing business contacts to connect and to make new business contacts. Over 400 million registered people in more than 200 countries use LinkedIn. Thus, LinkedIn is currently the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most visited websites in the world.

The operating company of LinkedIn is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court Mountain View, CA 94043, UNITED STATES. For privacy matters outside of the UNITED STATES LinkedIn Ireland, Privacy Policy Issues, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, is responsible.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to the download of a display of the corresponding LinkedIn component of LinkedIn. Further information about the LinkedIn plug-in may be accessed under https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. During the course of this technical procedure, LinkedIn gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on LinkedIn, LinkedIn 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-page of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the LinkedIn component and associated with the respective LinkedIn account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the LinkedIn buttons integrated on our website, then LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.

LinkedIn receives information via the LinkedIn component that the data subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is logged in at LinkedIn at the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the LinkedIn button or not. If such a transmission of information to LinkedIn is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their LinkedIn account before a call-up to our website is made.

LinkedIn provides under https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls the possibility to unsubscribe from e-mail messages, SMS messages and targeted ads, as well as the ability to manage ad settings.

LinkedIn SlideShare as a file hosting service allows you to exchange and archive presentations and other documents, such as PDF files, videos, and webinars. The file hosting service allows users to upload media content in all popular formats, with the documents either publicly-accessible or private-labeled.

The operating company of SlideShare is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court Mountain View, CA 94043, United States. For privacy matters outside of the United States the LinkedIn Ireland, Privacy Policy Issues, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, is responsible.

LinkedIn SlideShare provides so-called embedded codes for the media content (e.g. presentations, PDF files, videos, photos, etc.) stored there. Embedded codes are program codes that are embedded in the Internet pages to display external content on their own website. Embedded codes allow content to be reproduced on its own website without storing it on its own server, possibly violating the right of reproduction of the respective author of the content. A further advantage of the use of an embedded code is that the respective operator of a website does not use its own storage space and the own server is thereby relieved. An embedded code may be integrated at any point on another website so that an external content may also be inserted within the own text. The purpose of using LinkedIn SlideShare is to relieve our server and to avoid copyright infringements, while at the same time using third-party content.

With each call-up to our Internet site, which is equipped with a SlideShare component (embedded code), this component prompts the browser that you are using to download the according embedded data from SlideShare. During the course of this technical procedure, LinkedIn gains knowledge of which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in on SlideShare at the same time, SlideShare recognizes with each call-up to our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site which specific sub-page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected by SlideShare and assigned to the respective SlideShare account of the data subject through LinkedIn.

LinkedIn obtains information via the SlideShare component that the data subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is logged in at SlideShare at the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the embedded media data or not. If such a transmission of information to SlideShare is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their SlideShare account before a call-up to our website is made.

LinkedIn also uses affiliates such as Eire, Google Analytics, BlueKai, DoubleClick, Nielsen, Comscore, Eloqua, and Lotame. The setting of such cookies may be denied under https://www.linkedin.com/legal/cookie-policy. The applicable data protection provisions for LinkedIn is available under https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.

PAYMENT METHOD: DATA PROTECTION PROVISIONS ABOUT THE USE OF PAYPAL AS A PAYMENT PROCESSOR

On this website, the controller has integrated components of PayPal. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts, which represent virtual private or business accounts. PayPal is also able to process virtual payments through credit cards when a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an e-mail address, which is why there are no classic account numbers. PayPal makes it possible to trigger online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also accepts trustee functions and offers buyer protection services.

The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.

If the data subject chooses “PayPal” as the payment option in the online shop during the ordering process, we automatically transmit the data of the data subject to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, the data subject agrees to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing.

The personal data transmitted to PayPal is usually first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number, or other data necessary for payment processing. The processing of the purchase contract also requires such personal data, which are in connection with the respective order.

The transmission of the data is aimed at payment processing and fraud prevention. The controller will transfer personal data to PayPal, in particular, if a legitimate interest in the transmission is given. The personal data exchanged between PayPal and the controller for the processing of the data will be transmitted by PayPal to economic credit agencies. This transmission is intended for identity and creditworthiness checks.

PayPal will, if necessary, pass on personal data to affiliates and service providers or subcontractors to the extent that this is necessary to fulfill contractual obligations or for data to be processed in the order.

The data subject has the possibility to revoke consent for the handling of personal data at any time from PayPal. A revocation shall not have any effect on personal data which must be processed, used or transmitted in accordance with (contractual) payment processing.

The applicable data protection provisions of PayPal may be retrieved under https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.

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).

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.

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.

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.

EXISTENCE OF AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING

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