Mail-Contact

Personal data

You alone decide whether or not you wish to disclose this data to us within the context of a contact request or similar. In general, we will use your personal data in order to respond to your query, to fulfil your order or to provide you with access to special information or offers.

You have the opportunity to provide us with your personal data voluntarily as part of a contact request or similar. In such circumstances it may be necessary to transmit your data to another Group company. Your data will not be transferred to any third party outside of the Group unless your query or the service/product you have requested explicitly requires it. If this is the case, you will be notified accordingly at the appropriate point in the process. If you wish, you can also provide us with personal data via applications integrated into our platform (contact forms, for example). The legal basis for processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which you are a contractual party is Article 6(1) point (b) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). To the extent we are required to obtain consent from the data subject for the processing of personal data, or if you provide us with your personal data for the purposes of us responding to a request submitted via the contact form, the legal basis for such processing is Article 6(1) point (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Your data will be processed in order to fulfil or respond to your request. It will be deleted as soon as the purpose for which it was provided by you and/or collected by us is fulfilled and any statutory or other retention periods have expired.

Log files and cookies

When you visit our websites or retrieve a file, data relating to this process is saved in a log file on our Web server. This data is not considered personal data. In other words, we cannot track which user has accessed which data. This means that the data your browser transmits to us is automatically collected and stored when a user accesses our website.

The data collected includes:

  • The domain name of the website you came from
  • The websites you visited within our Internet presence
  • The names of any files retrieved
  • Date and time of retrieval
  • The name of your Internet service provider
  • In some cases, details of your PC’s operating system and browser version
  • Host name of the computer from which you accessed the site (IP address)
  • Language settings

This data is collected for security and statistical purposes and to help us optimise our Internet presence. This data is not attributed to individual persons and is not combined with other data sources. The data is stored for six months, after which time it is deleted. Your data is not forwarded to third parties. In individual cases, we may be obliged by the responsible public authorities to disclose your personal data if this is required for the purposes of hazard prevention, law enforcement or on other legal grounds.

Cookies are text files that generally consist of letters and numbers and are stored on the user’s computer when they visit our website. Cookies enable us to expand the range of functionality within our Internet presence in order to make it as enjoyable as possible for you to use.
Session cookies are only stored on your computer for the duration of your visit to our website.

IP addresses

We have opted not to log IP addresses in order to allow you to use our website anonymously. We pseudonymise your IP address using a procedure that complies with the data protection requirements before saving it in our Web server log file. We use these pseudonymised IP addresses to detect and prevent attacks or to generate Web statistics, for example.

Children

Children must not transfer any personal data to Decadia websites without the permission of a parent or guardian. Decadia GmbH advises all parents and guardians to instruct children on how to handle personal data online in a safe and responsible manner. In any event, Decadia GmbH will not knowingly collect or use in any way personal data from children, or disclose it to third parties without authorisation.

Security

Decadia GmbH takes a range of precautions to ensure the security of your personal data. Your data will be conscientiously protected against loss, destruction, falsification, manipulation and unauthorised access or unauthorised disclosure. Some of your data will be transmitted unencrypted from the Internet. Accordingly, the possibility that it might be viewed by a third party without authorisation cannot be ruled out.

Links to other websites

This website contains links to other webpages. As the operator of our website, we are only responsible for the content of our own online presence. A distinction is drawn between our own content and content maintained by third parties for which we accept no responsibility and which content we do not seek to appropriate. We have no influence on whether the operators of the websites linked with us comply with the applicable data protection regulations. The present privacy statement therefore does not apply to the Internet sites of other providers, including where these are retrieved via links on the website. For this reason, we ask you to please observe the respective regulations on data protection of the other providers. We are thus not liable for the content of third-party websites. Should you notice a breach related to a link, we would kindly ask you to draw our attention to it. We will then investigate the breach and, if necessary, immediately remove the link in question.

Your rights

You have the right at any time to request information from us free of charge regarding your stored personal data, as well as to object to the processing or use of your data. Moreover, you can also assert your rights to the blocking, erasure and rectification of your personal data against us. Please contact us at datenschutz@decadia.com to do so.

If you want to send an S/MIME encrypted mail to this mail address, you will find the public certificate here.

You are also entitled to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement. The supervisory authority responsible for Decadia GmbH is the North Rhine-Westphalia Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information.

Our data protection strategy will also be affected by the continued development of the Internet. We will announce any alterations in advance on this webpage.
