Privacy statement

Thank you for your interest in our company. Privacy is particularly important to the management of LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH. The LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH website can generally be used without entering any personal data. If a data subject wishes to use particular services through our website, however, this may involve processing personal data. If this is the case and there is no legal basis for the processing, we will generally obtain the data subject’s consent.

Personal data, such as the data subject’s name, address, email address or telephone number, is always processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and the regional privacy regulations applicable to LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH. The aim of this privacy statement is for our company to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. It also informs data subjects about their rights.

As the controller, LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH has implemented a number of technical and organisational measures to ensure the greatest possible protection of the personal data processed through this website. Internet-based data transmissions do, however, generally involve security loopholes, meaning total protection cannot be guaranteed. As such, every data subject is free to provide his or her personal data to us using alternative means, such as by telephone.

 

 

1. Definitions

The LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH privacy policy is based on the definitions used by the European legislators when enacting the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our privacy statement is designed to be easily read and understood by the public, as well as our customers and business partners.
To ensure this, we wish to first explain the terms used.

We use the following terms, among others, in this privacy statement:

a) Personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b) Data subject

A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller.

c) Processing

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

d) Restriction of processing

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

e) Profiling

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

f) Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Controller

Controller means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

h) Processor

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

i) Recipient

Recipient means 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.

j) Third party

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

k) Consent

Consent of the data subject means 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.

4. Cookies

The LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH website uses cookies – text files stored and saved on a computer system via an Internet browser. A number of websites and servers use them. Many cookies contain a “cookie ID” which clearly identifies them. This ID consists of a sequence of characters which enables websites and servers to be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie has been saved. This allows the visited websites and servers to distinguish between the data subject’s individual browser and other Internet browsers containing other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognised and identified via the distinct cookie ID.

By using cookies, LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH can offer visitors more user-friendly services that would not be possible without installing the cookies.

A cookie enables the information and services on our website to be optimised for users. As previously mentioned, they allow us to recognise users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make our website easier for users to use. For example, visitors to a website that uses cookies do not need to re-enter their login details every time they visit, as this has been taken care of by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the shopping-basket cookie in online shops. Through this cookie, the online shop notices the items a customer has placed in their virtual shopping basket.

The data subject can prevent, and thus permanently ban, our website from installing cookies at anytime by adjusting his or her Internet browser settings accordingly. Cookies already installed can also be cleared via an Internet browser or other software programs. All conventional Internet browsers can do this. If the data subject disables cookies in his or her Internet browser, it may not be possible to use all the functions of our website to their full extent.

 

5. Recording of general data and information

Every time a data subject or automated system visits the LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH website, the website records certain general data and information. This general data and information is saved in the server’s log files. The following may be recorded: (1) The browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reached our website (“referrer”), (4) the subpages visited via an accessing system on our website, (5) the time and date of a visit to the website, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet Service Provider of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information serving to defend against risks in the event of attacks against our information technology systems.

LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject when using this general data and information. The information is instead needed in order to (1) correctly deliver our website’s content, (2) optimise our website’s content and advertising, (3) ensure our information technology systems and our website’s technology are functional at all times, and (4) provide law-enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH thus analyses this anonymously collected data and information for statistical purposes, and also to increase privacy and data security at our company, so as to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data in the server log files is saved separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

 

6. Registration on our website

The data subject has the option of registering on the controller’s website by providing personal data. The input mask used for the registration advises which personal data is sent to the controller. The personal data entered by the data subject is only collected and saved for internal use at the controller’s end and for specific purposes. The controller may share this with one or more processors, such as a parcel service provider, who will similarly only use the personal data for internal usage attributed to the controller.

By registering on the controller’s website, the IP address assigned by the data subject’s Internet Service Provider (ISP), as well as the time and date of registration, will be saved. This data is saved because it’s the only way to prevent our services from being abused, and because this data can shed further light on criminal offences. In this respect, this data must be saved in order to protect the controller. It is generally not shared with third parties, unless there is a legal obligation to do so, or the data needs to be shared for prosecution purposes.

The data subject’s registration, voluntarily providing personal data, helps the controller offer the data subject content or services which, due to their nature, are only available to registered users. Registered users can edit the personal data entered during registration, or completely remove this from the controller’s database, at any time.

Upon request, the controller can provide every data subject with information on the personal data that has been saved in relation to him or her at any time. It will also rectify or erase the personal data upon request or instruction from the data subject, unless legal storage obligations prevent this. All of the controller’s staff are at the data subject’s disposal in this context.

 

7. Website contact function

In accordance with legal regulations, the LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH website contains information enabling fast, electronic contact with our company and direct communication with us. This also includes a general electronic mailing address (email address). If a data subject contacts the controller by email or via a contact form, the personal data sent by the data subject will be automatically saved. This type of personal data sent by a data subject to the controller on a voluntary basis is saved for the purpose of processing or making contact with the data subject. This personal data is not shared further with third parties.

We integrate the fonts (“Google Fonts”) provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Privacy statement:
https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ , opt-out: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

 

9. Google Maps

We integrate the maps provided by the “Google Maps” service run by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The processed data may particularly include users’ IP addresses and location data, though this is not collected without the users’ consent (generally performed as part of their mobile device settings). The data may be processed in the USA. Privacy statement: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ , opt-out: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

 

10. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The controller only processes and saves the data subject’s personal data for the time period necessary to achieve the storage purpose, or insofar as this is stipulated by European or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

If the storage purpose ceases to exist or a storage period set by European or other competent legislators expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or erased in accordance with the legal regulations.

 

11. Rights of the data subject

a) Right to confirmation

The European legislators grant every data subject the right to ask the controller for confirmation of whether his or her personal data is being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to confirmation, he or she may contact one of the controller’s staff members about this at any time.

b) Right to information

The European legislators grant every data subject the right to obtain free information from the controller regarding his or her saved personal data, and to receive a copy of this information. The European legislators have further permitted the data subject to receive the following information:

 

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

 

The data subject is additionally granted a right to receive information on whether personal data has been sent to a third country or international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject is incidentally entitled to obtain information on the suitable guarantees relating to the transmission.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to information, he or she may contact one of the controller’s staff members about this at any time.

 

c) Right to rectification

The European legislators grant every data subject the right to ask for incorrect personal data relating to him or her to be immediately rectified. Furthermore, the data subject is entitled, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to request – including via an additional statement – that incomplete personal data be completed.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may contact one of the controller’s staff members about this at any time.

 

d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)

The European legislators grant every data subject the right to ask the controller to immediately delete his or her personal data insofar as one of the following grounds apply and processing is not required:

 

  • The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
  • The data subject withdraws consent on which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6(1), or point (a) of Article 9(2) GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), and where there is no other legal ground for the processing.
  • The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) GDPR.
  • The personal data have been unlawfully processed.
  • The personal data have to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
  • The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1) GDPR.

 

If one of the aforementioned grounds applies and a data subject wishes for personal data stored by LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH to be erased, he or she may contact one of the controller’s staff members about this at any time. The LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH staff will ensure the erasure request is met immediately.

If LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH has publicly disclosed the personal data and our company, as controller under Art. 17 Para. 1 GDPR, is obliged to erase personal data, LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH will, taking into account the available technology and implementation costs, take appropriate measures, including of a technical nature, to inform other controllers processing the published personal data that the data subject has asked these other controllers to erase all links to this personal data or copies or duplicates of this personal data, insofar as processing is not required. The LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH staff will take the necessary steps in specific cases.

 

e) Right to restriction of processing

The European legislators grant every data subject the right to ask the controller to restrict processing if one of the following requirements has been met:

 

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

 

If one of the aforementioned requirements has been met and a data subject wishes to request a restriction on personal data saved by LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH, he or she may contact one of the controller’s staff members about this at any time. The LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH will arrange for the processing to be restricted.

 

f) Right to data portability

The European legislators grant every data subject the right to receive his or her personal data, which has been provided to a controller by the data subject, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. The data subject also has the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data has been provided, insofar as the data is processed based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 a GDPR or Art. 9 Para. 2 a GDPR, or based on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 b GDPR, and the processing is executed using automated operations, insofar as the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

Furthermore, in executing his or her right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 Para. 1 GDPR, the data subject has the right to ensure the personal data is sent directly from one controller to another, insofar as this is technically feasible and does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

The data subject may contact one of the LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH staff members at any time if he or she wishes to exercise his or her right to data portability.

 

g) Right to object

The European legislators grant every data subject the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6 Para. 1 GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.

LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH no longer processes the personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH processing the data for direct marketing purposes, LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH shall no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

The data subject, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, also has the right to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is processed by LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 Para. 1 GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

The data subject may contact any of the LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH staff members or another staff member at any time if he or she wishes to exercise his or her right to object. In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, the data subject may also exercise his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

 

h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

The European legislators grant every data subject the right to not be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, unless the decision is (1) necessary for entering into, or the performance of a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interest, or (3) based on the data subject’s explicit consent.

If the decision is (1) necessary for entering into or performing a contract between the data subject and data controller, or (2) based on the data subject’s explicit consent, LAWA Hefeknödelspezialitäten GmbH shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, which at least includes the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

If the data subject wishes to assert rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may contact one of the controller’s staff members about this at any time.

 

i) Right to withdraw consent relating to data protection

The European legislators grant every data subject the right to withdraw, at any time, his or her consent to the processing of personal data.
If the data subject wishes to assert his or her right to withdraw consent, he or she may contact one of the controller’s staff members about this at any time.

 

12. Privacy in relation to applications and the application process

The controller collects and processes applicants’ personal data as part of the application process. The processing may be performed electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends the controller the relevant application documents electronically, e.g. by email or using a web form on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data is saved for the purpose of executing the employment relationship, taking into account the legal regulations. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents are automatically erased two months after the rejection notice has been issued, insofar as no other legitimate controller interests are impeded by the erasure. Other legitimate interests in this sense include an onus of proof in a procedure under the German General Act on Equal Treatment (AGG).

 

13. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 I a GDPR serves as the legal basis for our company’s processing operations, for which we obtain consent for certain processing purposes. If the processing of personal data is necessary in order to fulfil a contract involving the data subject, e.g. in the case of processing necessary to deliver goods, to render another service or return service, the processing shall be based on Art. 6 I b GDPR. The same applies to processing necessary to execute pre-contractual measures, e.g. in cases of requests regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation necessitating the processing of personal data, e.g. to fulfil fiscal obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I c GDPR. In rare cases, it may be necessary to process personal data in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor injured themselves at our company, and their name, age, health-fund details or other vital information had to be forwarded to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I d GDPR. Finally, processing may be based on Art. 6 I f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing not covered by any of the other aforementioned legal bases, if the processing is necessary in order to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, insofar as this is not outweighed by the data subject’s interests and basic rights and freedoms. We are particularly permitted to perform such processing operations because they have been especially mentioned by the European legislators. They are of the opinion that a legitimate interest could apply if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 Clause 2 GDPR).

 

14. Legitimate interests in processing, pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Art. 6 I f GDPR, our legitimate interest is that of conducting our business for the well-being of all our staff and shareholders.

 

15. Duration for which the personal data is saved

The criterion for the storage duration for personal data is the respective legal storage period. Once the period has elapsed, the relevant data is routinely erased, insofar as they are no longer necessary for fulfilling or initiating contracts.

 

16. Legal or contractual regulations governing the provision of personal data; requirement for contractual conclusion; data subject’s obligation to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

We advise you that the provision of personal data is, in part, stipulated by law (e.g. fiscal regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. contractual partner’s details). When concluding a contract, a data subject may sometimes have to provide us with personal data which must consequently be processed by us. The data subject may, for example, be obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failing to provide personal data would result in it not being possible to conclude the contract with the data subject. Before providing personal data, the data subject must contact one of our staff members. Our staff member will inform the data subject individually on whether the provision of personal data is stipulated by law or by contract or is required for contract conclusion, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and the consequences of not providing the personal data.

 

17. Automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we refrain from using automated decision-making or profiling.
