We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of particular importance for the management of Freidank GmbH. The use of the internet pages of Freidank GmbH is basically possible without any indication of personal data. If a concerned person wishes to use particular services of our company through our website, however, personal data processing may be required. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally seek the consent of the data subject.
Freidank GmbH, as the data controller, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security holes, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to submit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.
Among other things, we use the following terms in this privacy statement:
Personal information is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as "the data subject"). A natural person is considered to be identifiable who, directly or indirectly, in particular by association with an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special features, expresses the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person can be identified.
The data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the data controller.
Processing means any process or series of operations, with or without the aid of automated procedures, related to personal data, such as collecting, gathering, organizing, ordering, storing, adapting or modifying, reading, querying, using, disclosure by submission, dissemination or other form of provision, comparison or association, restriction, deletion or destruction.
- d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of the processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim to limit their future processing.
Profiling is any kind of automated processing of personal data that consists in using that personal information to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, whereabouts or relocation of that natural person.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and subject to technical and organizational measures that ensure that the personal data are not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
- g) The data controller or person responsible for data processing
The data controller or person responsible for data processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other entity that, alone or in concert with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union law or the law of the Member States, the data controller or the specific criteria for his designation may be provided for under Union or national law.
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other entity that processes personal data on behalf of the data controller.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other entity to whom personal data is disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. Authorities which may receive personal data under Union or national law in connection with a particular investigation mandate, however, are not considered as recipients.
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, intitution or other entity other than the data subject, the data controller, the processor and the persons authorized under the direct responsibility of the data controller or processor to process the personal data.
Consent is any voluntarily given and unambiguously expressed in the form of a statement or other unambiguous confirmatory act by the data subject for the particular case, by which the data subject indicates that they consent to the processing of the personal data concerning him / her.
2. Name and address of the data controller responsible for the processing
The person responsible within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions regarding data protection is:
By using cookies, Freidank GmbH can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
4. Collecting general data and information
The website of Freidank GmbH collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a concerned person or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. Collected data can contain (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the internet page from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access 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 that serve danger prevention in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, Freidank GmbH does not draw conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) to optimize the content of our website as well as the publicity for it, (3) to ensure the continued functioning of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack. Freidank GmbH evaluates this anonymously collected data and information on the one hand statistically and further with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.
5. Registration on our website
The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the data controller by providing personal data. The personal data to be sent to the data controller is derived from the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject shall be collected and stored solely for internal use by the data controller and for own purposes. The data controller may arrange for the transfer to one or more processors, such as a parcel service, who also uses the personal data only for internal use attributable to the data controller.
By registering on the website of the data controller, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject, the date and time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place with the purpose to prevent the misuse of our services in this way, and these data in case of need make it possible to clarify committed offenses. In this respect, the storage of this data is required to secure the data controller. In principle, a disclosure of these data to third parties does not take place, unless there is a legal obligation for disclosure or if the disclosure serves purposes of law enforcement.
By registering the data subject voluntarily providing personal data, the data controller serves to provide the data subject with content or services that, due to the nature of the case, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data indicated at registration at any time or to have it deleted completely from the database of the data controller.
The data controller shall, at any time upon request, provide information to each data subject as to which personal data about the data subject is stored. Furthermore, the data controller corrects or deletes personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as this does not conflict with any statutory storage requirements. All employees of the data controller are available to the data subject as a contact person in this context.
6. Subscription to our newsletter
On the website of Freidank GmbH, users are given the possibility to subscribe to the newsletter of our company. Which personal data are transmitted to the data controller when the newsletter is ordered, results from the input mask used for this purpose.
Freidank GmbH informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about company offers. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid email address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter. For legal reasons, a first-time confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by a person concerned for newsletter mailing using the double-opt-in procedure. This confirmation email is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address as the person concerned authorized the receipt of the newsletter.
When subscribing to the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration, as assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP). The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of an affected person's e-mail address at a later date and therefore serves as legal safeguards for the data controller.
The personal data collected in the context of registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively to send our newsletter. Subscribers to the newsletter may also be notified by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or registration, as might be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter or technical changes. There will be no transfer of the personal data to third parties that has been collected as part of the newsletter service. Subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for the newsletter sending can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking the consent, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, directly on the data controller's website, or to inform the data controller in a different way.
The newsletters of Freidank GmbH contain so-called pixel tags. A pixel tag is a miniature graphic that is embedded in such emails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded pixel tag, Freidank GmbH can detect if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject and which links in the e-mail were clicked on by the data subject.
Such personal data collected via the pixel tags contained in the newsletters will be stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimize the delivery of newsletters and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties. Concerned persons are at any time entitled to revoke the separate declaration of consent made via the double-opt-in procedure. After revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the data controller. The Freidank GmbH will automatically interpret a deregistration of the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
8. Contact via the website
Due to legal regulations, the website of Freidank GmbH contains information that enables quick electronic contact with our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a concerned person contacts the data controller by e-mail or through a contact form, the personal data provided by the data subject will automatically be saved. Such personal data, voluntarily transmitted by an individual to the data controller, is stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties.
9. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
The data controller processes and stores personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage or, if required, for the period stipulated by the European directives and regulations or any other legislator in laws, the data controller being subject to.
If the storage purpose is omitted or if a storage period prescribed by the European directive and regulations or any other relevant legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
10. Rights of the data subject

If that is the case, then the data subject has the right to obtain information about the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer.
If a concerned person wishes to exercise this right to information, they may at any time contact an employee of the data controller.
- c) Right to rectification
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator to demand the immediate correction of inaccurate personal data concerning him / her. Furthermore, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration, taking into account the purposes of the processing.
If an affected person wishes to exercise this right of rectification, they may, at any time, contact an employee of the data controller.
- d) Right to deletion (right to be forgotten)

If one of the above reasons is correct and a person concerned wishes to initiate the deletion of personal data stored by Freidank GmbH, they may at any time contact an employee of the data controller. The employee of Freidank GmbH will arrange that the request for deletion will be fulfilled immediately.
If the personal data has been made public by Freidank GmbH and if our company is responsible for deleting personal data pursuant to Article 17 (1) GDPR, Freidank GmbH will take appropriate measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs of a technical kind, to inform other data controllers processing the published personal data that the data subject has requested the deletion from all other data controllers any links to such personal data or copies or replications of such personal data as far as the processing is not required. The employee of Freidank GmbH will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.
- e) Right to restriction of processing

- The data controller no longer needs the personal data for processing purposes, but the data subject requires them to assert, exercise or defend his/her rights.
- The person concerned has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh those of the person concerned.
If one of the above-mentioned conditions exists and a concerned person wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by Freidank GmbH, they may at any time contact an employee of the data controller. The employee of Freidank GmbH will initiate the restriction of processing.
- f) Right to data portability
Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European Directives and Regulations to obtain the personal data concerning him / her, which has been provided to a data controller by the data subject, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. The data subject also has the right to transfer this data to another data controller without hindrance by the data controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR or Article 9 (1) (b) 2 (a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR and processing by means of automated processes, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task of public interest or in the exercise of public authority, which has been assigned to the data controller.
Furthermore, in exercising their right to data portability under Article 20 (1) of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to obtain that the personal data are transmitted directly from one data controller to another, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of others.
In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact an employee of Freidank GmbH.
Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority to appeal at any time, for reasons arising from his/ her particular situation, against the processing of personal data concerning him/ her pursuant to Article 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR.

In addition, the data subject has the right, for reasons arising from his / her particular situation, to appeal the processing of personal data relating to him or her, that occur for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89 (1) GDPR, unless such processing is necessary to fulfill a task of public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the person concerned may directly contact any employee of Freidank GmbH or another employee. The data subject is also free, in the context of the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise his right of opposition by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
- h) Automated decisions on a case-by-case basis, including profiling
Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right, as granted by the European directive and regulatory authority, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal effect on the data subject or, in a similar manner, significantly affects the data subject; unless the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) is permitted by Union or Member State legislation to which the data controller is subject, and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject; or (3) with the express consent of the data subject.
If the decision (1) is required for the conclusion or the performance of a contract between the person concerned and the data controller or (2) it takes place with the express consent of the data subject, Freidank GmbH takes appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms and the interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the data controller, after expressing his / her own position and appealing the decision.

11. Data protection in applications and in the application process
The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application process. The processing can also be done electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to the data controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form available on the website. If the data controller concludes a contract of employment with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purposes of the employment relationship in accordance with the law. If no employment contract is concluded with the candidate by the data controller, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after the announcement of the refusal, unless deletion precludes other legitimate interests of the data controller. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Act on Equal Treatment (AGG).
The data controller has integrated components of the company Facebook on this website. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that typically allows users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform to exchange views and experiences, or allows the Internet community to provide personal or business information. Facebook allows social network users, amongst other things, to create private profiles, upload photos and socialize via friend requests.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. Persons responsible for the processing of personal data, if a concerned person lives outside the US or Canada, are Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Each visit to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned automatically by the respective Facebook Component causes a representation of the corresponding Facebook component of Facebook to be downloaded. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US. As part of this technical process, Facebook receives information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.
If the data subject is simultaneously logged into Facebook, Facebook recognizes with each visit to our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website, which specific subpage of our website the data subject visits. This information is collected through the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the person concerned activates one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and saves this personal data.
Facebook always receives an information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transfer of this information to Facebook is not wanted by the data subject, it can prevent the transfer by logging out of their Facebook account before accessing our website.
The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, different applications are available, which make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook.
The data controller has integrated components of the Instagram service on this website. Instagram is a service that qualifies as an audiovisual platform, allowing users to share photos and videos, and also disseminate such data to other social networks.
Instagram's operating company is Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA.
Each visit to one of the pages of this website operated by the data controller and on which an Instagram component (Insta-Button) has been integrated, automatically causes the internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned through the respective Instagram component to download a representation of the corresponding component of Instagram. As part of this technical process, Instagram is aware of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.
If the data subject is logged in to Instagram at the same time, Instagram recognizes with each visit to our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website which specific subpage the person concerned visits. This information is collected through the Instagram component and assigned through Instagram to the Instagram account of the person concerned. If the person concerned activates one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transferred with it are assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the person concerned and saved and processed by Instagram.
Through the Instagram component, Instagram always receives an information that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is simultaneously logged into Instagram at the time of accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person clicks on the Instagram component or not. If the person concerned does not want to transmit this information to Instagram, that person can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Instagram account before accessing our website.
The data controller has integrated the Shariff component on this website. The Shariff component provides social media buttons that comply with data protection laws. Shariff was developed for the German computer magazine c't and is published by GitHub, Inc.
Developer of the component is GitHub, Inc. 88 Colin P. Kelly Junior Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.
Usually, the button solutions provided by the social networks already transfer personal data to the respective social network when a user visits a website into which a social media button has been integrated. By using the Shariff component, personal data is transmitted to social networks only when the visitor to an Internet site actively activates one of the social media buttons. Further information on the Shariff component is available by the computer magazine c't at http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Datenschutz-und-Social-Media-Der-ct-Shariff-ist-im-Einsatz-2470103.html. The use of the Shariff component is intended to protect the personal data of visitors to our website and at the same time to enable us to integrate a button solution for social networks on this website.
The data controller has integrated components of Sofortüberweisung (immediate transfer) on this website. Sofortüberweisung is a payment service that enables cashless payment for products and services on the Internet. Sofortüberweisung represents a technical procedure by which the online retailer immediately receives a payment confirmation. This enables a merchant to deliver goods, services or downloads to the customer immediately after ordering.
The operating company of Sofortüberweisung is SOFORT GmbH, Fußbergstraße 1, 82131 Gauting, Germany.
If the data subject selects "Sofortüberweisung" as a payment option during the order process in our online shop, data of the person concerned will be automatically transferred to Sofortüberweisung. With a selection of this payment option, the data subject consents to a transfer of personal data required for payment processing.
During the purchase via Sofortüberweisung the buyer transmits the PIN and the TAN to the Sofort GmbH. Sofortüberweisung then executes a transfer to the online retailer after a technical check of the account balance and retrieval of further data to check the account funds. The execution of the financial transaction is then communicated to the online retailer automatically.
The personal data exchanged with Sofortüberweisung are first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data necessary for payment processing. The purpose of the transmission of the data is payment processing and fraud prevention. The data controller will provide Sofortüberweisung with other personal information even if there is a legitimate interest in the transfer. The personal data exchanged between Sofortüberweisung and the data controller may, under certain circumstances, be transmitted to credit reference agencies by Sofortüberweisung. This transmission aims at the verification of identity and credit check.
Sofortüberweisung may transfer the personal data to affiliated companies and service providers or subcontractors, as far as this is necessary to fulfil the contractual obligations or the data shall be processed in the order.
The data subject has the option to revoke the consent to the handling of personal data at any time in relation to Sofortüberweisung. A revocation has no effect on personal data that must be processed, used or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.
The applicable data protection provisions of Sofortüberweisung can be found at https://www.sofort.com/ger-DE/datenschutzerklaerung-sofort-gmbh/.
16. Legal basis of processing
Article 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a contract of which the data subject is a contractual party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or return service, processing shall be based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance 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 Article 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR. On this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly allowed to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, it considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the data controller (recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).
17. Legitimate interests in processing that are being pursued by the data controller or a third party
Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest lies in conducting our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders.
18. Duration for which the personal data are stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfil the contract or to initiate a contract.
19. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We clarify that the provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contracting party). Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with the data subject. Not providing the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of the non-provision of the personal data.
20. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we abstain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
