Privacy policy


We are very pleased about your interest in our company. The management of CURREX GmbH attaches particular importance to data protection. CURREX GmbH Internet pages can generally be used without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of special services provided by our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection provisions applicable to CURREX GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company wishes to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this privacy statement informs data subjects of their rights.

As the data controller, CURREX GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

1. Definitions

The CURREX GmbH data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator when the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) was issued. Our privacy policy should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

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

(d) Restriction of processing

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

(e) Profiling

Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the performance of work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or change of location of that natural person.

f) Pseudonymisation

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

(g) Controller or controller responsible for processing

Controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any 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 national law, the controller or the specific criteria for his designation may be provided for by Union or national law.

The recipient is any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or national law shall not be considered as recipients.

j) Third party

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

(k) Consent

Consent shall mean any freely given and informed unequivocal expression of the data subject's wishes in the specific case, in the form of a statement or any other unequivocal affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

3. Cookies

The Internet pages of CURREX GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier for the cookie. It consists of a string of characters by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the websites and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified by its unique cookie ID.

The use of cookies enables CURREX GmbH to provide users of this website with more user-friendly services which would not be available to them without the setting of cookies.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised in the interest of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his or her access data each time he or she visits the website, as this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop uses a cookie to remember the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies already set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers.

The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

b) Persistent cookies, these are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security setting of your browser at any time.

    7. collection of general data and information

    Every time a data subject or automated system accesses the CURREX GmbH website, the CURREX GmbH website collects a range of general data and information. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

    If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website and to ensure its stability and security:

    • IP address
    • Date and time of the request
    • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
    • Content of the request (concrete page)
    • Access status/HTTP status code
    • Amount of data transmitted in each case
    • Website from which the request comes
    • Browser
    • Operating system and its interface
    • Language and version of the browser software.
    • The legal basis for the storage of data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.


    CURREX GmbH will not draw any conclusions about the person concerned when using this general data and information. This information is rather required to (1) deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) optimize the contents of our website as well as the advertising for it, (3) to ensure the permanent operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website as well as (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the case of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore used by CURREX GmbH for statistical purposes and also with the aim of enhancing data protection and data security within our company, ultimately ensuring an optimum 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 a person concerned.

    8. registration on our website

    The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller by providing personal data. The personal data transmitted to the data controller is determined by the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored solely for internal use by the controller and for the purposes of the controller's own activities. The controller may arrange for the transfer to one or more processors, such as a parcel service provider, who will also use the personal data exclusively for an internal use attributable to the controller.

    Furthermore, by registering on the Internet site of the data controller, the IP address assigned to the data subject by the Internet Service Provider (ISP), the date and time of registration are 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 enable the clarification of committed crimes. In this respect, the storage of these data is necessary to protect the data controller. This data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the passing on of the data serves criminal prosecution.

    The registration of the data subject with voluntary provision of personal data serves the purpose of the data controller to offer the data subject content or services which, by their very nature, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the data controller.

    The controller shall at any time upon request provide any data subject with information as to which personal data relating to the data subject are stored. Furthermore, the controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or notice of the data subject, unless this is contrary to any legal retention obligations. The entire staff of the controller is at the disposal of the data subject as contact persons in this context.

    Depending on the type of contract concluded, we store the following data:

    • Surnames, first names
    • Address
    • Billing address
    • E-mail address
    • Phone number

    During the registration process, you will be asked whether you have read the privacy policy and agree to its validity, which you confirm by clicking the box and ticking the appropriate box. By doing so, you agree that your personal data may be used for the following purposes:

    • Order processing
    • Sending of direct advertising, e.g. by e-mail, package insert or post, sending of offers and vouchers
    • Sending evaluation requests
    • Sending of our newsletter

    The legal basis for the processing of the data is, if you give your consent, Art. 6 Paragraph 1 letter a DS-GVO and, if the registration serves the fulfilment of a contract or the implementation of pre-contractual measures with you, additionally Art. 6 Paragraph 1 letter b DS-GVO.

    For the operation of our online shop we use Shopify, a service of Shopify Inc, 126 York Street, Suite 200, Ottawa, ON, Canada, K1N 5T5. This service provides an e-commerce platform through which we offer our goods for sale. The data transmitted in the context of your order is stored on a Shopify server in the USA. Shopify has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. For more information on data protection, please refer to the Shopify privacy policy at http://www.shopify.com/legal/p... style="box-sizing: border-box;">
    The legal basis for the transfer of data to third parties for the purpose of contract processing or for billing purposes is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b DS-GVO and for the transfer of data in legally ordered cases Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. c DS-GVO.

    9. subscription to our newsletter


    On the CURREX GmbH website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company's newsletter. Which personal data are transmitted to the data controller when ordering the newsletter is determined by the input mask used for this purpose.

    CURREX GmbH informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals about offers from the company by means of a newsletter. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the person concerned if (1) the person concerned has a valid e-mail address and (2) the person concerned registers for the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address first entered by a person concerned for the newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address, as the person concerned, has authorised the receipt of the newsletter.

    When registering for the newsletter, we also save the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date and therefore serves to provide legal protection for the data controller.

    The personal data collected during registration for the newsletter is used exclusively for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for registration, as could be the case if there are changes to the newsletter offer or if technical conditions change. Personal data collected within the scope of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the person concerned has given us for the newsletter dispatch, can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is included in every newsletter. It is also possible at any time to unsubscribe from the newsletter mailing directly on the website of the controller or to notify the controller in any other way.

    10. newsletter tracking

    The newsletters of CURREX GmbH contain so-called counting pixels. A tracking pixel is a thumbnail image embedded in e-mails sent in HTML format to allow log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. The embedded pixel-code enables CURREX GmbH to identify whether and when an e-mail was opened by a person concerned and which links in the e-mail were accessed by the person concerned.

    Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimise the newsletter dispatch and 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. Affected persons are entitled to revoke the separate declaration of consent submitted via the double opt-in procedure at any time. Following a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. CURREX GmbH will automatically interpret any cancellation of receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

    11. possibility of contact via the website


    In compliance with legal requirements, the website of CURREX GmbH contains information that enables rapid electronic contact with our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). Where 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 from a data subject to the controller shall be stored for the purposes of processing or for contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

    12. social media

    Besides this website, we also maintain presences in various social media. If you visit such a presence, personal data may be transmitted to the provider of the social network. It is possible that in addition to the storage of the data you specifically entered in this social medium, further information may be collected, processed or used by the social network provider. We link to the social media platforms Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube on our website by using the respective icons. These are hyperlinks which do not transmit your data. If you click on the link, you will be immediately redirected to our respective social media presence. Your data will only be transmitted to the respective social media service if you are logged in to your respective user account. In this case, the respective social media platform may obtain information about the content you have viewed on our site.

    In addition, the social network provider may collect, process and use the most important data of the computer system from which you visit it - for example your IP address, the type of processor used and browser version including plug-ins.

    If you are logged in with your personal user account of the respective medium during the visit of such a medium, this medium can assign the visit to this account. If you do not wish to receive such an allocation, you must log out of your account before visiting our presence.

    The purpose and scope of data collection by the respective medium as well as the further processing and use of your data there and your rights in this regard can be found in the respective provisions of the respective medium:

    Facebook rules
    Google+ / YouTube terms
    Twitter provisions
    Included contents

    Responsible for the social media services linked by us are exclusively:

    for Facebook and its Internet presence, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA;

    for Instagram and its Internet presence, Instagram, LLC, 1601 Willow Rd. Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA;

    for YouTube and its Internet presence, YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., St. Bruno, CA 94066, USA

    When you visit a website with such content, a connection to the YouTube servers is established and the content is displayed on the website by notifying your browser.

    This tells the YouTube server which of our websites you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of YouTube, YouTube will assign this information to your personal user account on this platform. You can prevent such assignment by logging out of your user account before visiting our website.

    Facebook Connect
    We use the "Facebook Connect" service of Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Facebook") on our website. We offer you the possibility to log on to our website with Facebook-Connect, if you have a Facebook profile and give us your express consent to exchange data with Facebook. An additional registration is not necessary in this case. For registration you will be redirected to the Facebook page where you can log in with your usage data. This will allow your browser to connect directly to Facebook's servers, linking your Facebook profile and our service. Through this link, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not currently logged in to Facebook. Through the link, we automatically receive the following information (name, email address, date of birth, address, Facebook name, the user ID, age, gender, and if applicable the profile picture, the friends list and the favored me information) from Facebook Inc. depending on your privacy settings on Facebook. From this data, we only use your name, your e-mail address, your date of birth and your address to create a user account, if you have approved this on Facebook. This information is necessary for the conclusion of the contract to be able to identify them.

    For more information about Facebook Connect and the privacy settings, please see the privacy notices and terms of use of Facebook Inc. http://www.facebook.com/policy... style="box-sizing: border-box;">
    If you do not want Facebook to link the data obtained via our website to your Facebook profile, it is necessary for you to log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can also exclude the Facebook Connect plugin with add-ons for your browser.

    For further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and on the further processing and use of your data by the respective social media service, please refer to the privacy policy of the respective platform.

    13. use of Google Tag Manager
    We use on our site the service Google Tag Manager of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. With Google Tag Manager, marketers can manage website tags from one interface. A tag is a tagging or marking of a database. However, the Tag Manager itself, which uses the tags, works without cookies and does not collect any personal data. The tags set up via the Google Tag Manger merely ensure the collection of data that is passed on to the target system. Because the data is only passed on, the system does not collect or save the data itself. The Tag Manager therefore only triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. For these respective third party providers, you will find corresponding statements in this privacy policy. The Google Tag Manager does not use this data. If you have set or otherwise adjusted a deactivation of cookies, this will be respected for all tracking tags used with Google Tag Manager, so the tool will not change your cookie settings.

    Google may ask your permission to share some product information (such as your account information) with other Google products to enable certain features, such as making it easier to add new conversion tracking tags for AdWords. In addition, Google's developers review product usage information from time to time to further optimize the product. However, Google will not share such information with other Google products without your consent.

    For more information, please see Google's Terms of Use and Google's privacy policy for this product.

    14. remarketing/retargeting

    (1) On our websites we use "Custom Audiences" of Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook") for retargeting and remarketing purposes. This service uses so-called tracking or remarketing pixels. These are pixel image files that enable log file analysis. By using the pixels, the service provider can see when and how many users have called up the pixel, or whether and when an e-mail was opened or a website visited.

    (2) This service can be used to display interest-related advertisements ("Facebook Ads") to users of the website when they visit the social network Facebook or other websites also using the procedure. In this way, we are pursuing the interest in displaying advertising that is of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting for you. When visiting our website, a direct connection to the Facebook servers is established via the pixel. This enables Facebook to identify you by your browser ID, as these can be linked to your user account. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Facebook through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our Internet presence or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will find out and save your IP address and other identifying features.

    (3) The deactivation of the function "Facebook Custom Audiences" is for logged-in users at https://www.facebook.com/setti... style="box-sizing: border-box;">
    (4)

    The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f DS-GVO. Further information on data processing by Facebook is available at https://www.facebook.com/about... style="box-sizing: border-box;">Right of objection
    If you do not wish to receive advertising generated by the respective targeting service, you can object to the use of retargeting technology on our websites by sending us a message to support@currex.com.

    15. routine erasure and blocking of personal data

    If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.

    16. rights of the data subject

    (a) Right to obtain confirmation Every data subject has the right, granted by the European legislator, to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether personal data relating to him or her are being processed.

    • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, in accordance with Article 22(1) and (4) of the DPA and, at least in these cases, meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended impact of such processing on the data subject

    The data subject shall also have the right to obtain information as to whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer.

    If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

    (c) Right of rectification

    Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver, to demand the immediate correction of incorrect personal data concerning him. Furthermore, the data subject shall have the right to obtain the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration, having regard to the purposes of the processing.

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

    (d) Right of cancellation (right to be forgotten)

    Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data relating to him/her, if one of the following reasons applies and provided that the processing is not necessary:

    • The personal data has been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which it is no longer necessary.
    • The data subject withdraws his or her consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) DPA or Article 9(2)(a) DPA and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
    • The data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the DPA and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for processing, or the data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the DPA.
    • The personal data were processed unlawfully.
    • The deletion of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
    • The personal data were collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Article 8(1) of the DS-GVO.

    If one of the above reasons applies and a data subject wishes to request the deletion of personal data stored by CURREX GmbH, he or she may contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of CURREX GmbH will ensure that the request for deletion is complied with immediately.

    If the personal data has been made public by CURREX GmbH and our company, as the data controller, is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 para. 1 of the DS-GVO, CURREX GmbH will take reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and implementation costs, to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data that the data subject has requested that these other data controllers delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The employee of CURREX GmbH will make the necessary arrangements in individual cases.

    e) Right to restrict processing

    Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:

    • The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period of time that allows the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
    • The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to have the personal data deleted and instead requests that the use of the personal data be restricted.
    • The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
    • The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) of the DPA and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.

    If any of the above conditions apply and a data subject wishes to restrict the personal data stored by CURREX GmbH, he or she may contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of CURREX GmbH will arrange for the restriction of processing.

    (f) Right to data portability

    Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to receive the personal data concerning him/her which have been made available to a controller by the data subject in a structured, common and machine-readable format. It also has the right to transfer these data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data have been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) DPA or Article 9(2)(a) DPA or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) DPA and that the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

    In addition, when exercising their right to data transfer, the data subject has the right, in accordance with Article 20 paragraph 1 of the DPA, to obtain that personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that it does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

    In order to exercise their right to data transfer, data subjects may at any time contact an employee of CURREX GmbH.

    (g) Right of appeal

    Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to object at any time, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out pursuant to Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DPA. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

    In the event of an objection, CURREX GmbH will no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection and outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

    If CURREX GmbH processes personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such marketing. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct mail. If the data subject objects to CURREX GmbH processing his/her personal data for direct marketing purposes, CURREX GmbH will no longer process the data for these purposes.

    In addition, the data subject has the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out at CURREX GmbH for the purposes of scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes, in accordance with Article 89 (1) of the DS-GVO, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

    To exercise the right of objection, the data subject may directly contact any employee of CURREX GmbH or any other employee. The data subject shall also be free to exercise his right of objection in relation to the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.

    (h) Automated case-by-case decisions including profiling

    Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him/her or significantly affects him/her in a similar way, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the controller is subject and such legislation provides for adequate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is made with the explicit consent of the data subject.

    If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller or (2) is made with the express consent of the data subject, CURREX GmbH shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the controller, to put forward its point of view and to challenge the decision.

    If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may at any time contact a member of staff of the controller.

    i) Right to revoke a data protection consent

    Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver, to revoke his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

    If the data subject wishes to exercise his or her right to withdraw consent, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

    17. data protection in applications and in the application process

    The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out by electronic means. This is in particular the case when an applicant submits relevant application documents to the controller by electronic means, such as e-mail or a web form available on the website. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data is stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application file shall be automatically deleted two months after notification of the decision to reject the application, unless deletion conflicts with any other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

    18. legal basis of the processing


    Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a 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, such as processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b DPA. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes the processing of personal data necessary, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might be necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were to be injured and his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject prevail. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

    19. legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

    If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

    20. the duration for which the personal data are stored


    The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of this period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

    21. legal or contractual provisions making the personal data available; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the data

    We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.

    22. existence of automated decision making

    As a responsible company, we avoid automatic decision making or profiling.
