The transmission will only take place for carrying out our contractual and statutory obligations or owing to your consent. This transmission will take place by complying with all applicable data protection laws and particularly pursuant to Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. In particular either owing to issued adequacy resolutions of the European Commission or owing to certain guarantees (for example standard data protection clauses, etc.).

5. Final part of the privacy statement
5.1 Duration of the storage
We principally store your data as long as this is necessary to provide our services or if this was envisaged by the European legislator of directives and regulations or another legislator in laws or regulations, which the data controller responsible for the processing is subject to. In all other cases we erase your personal data after settlement of the purpose, with the exception of those data, which we must continue to store in order to fulfil legal obligations (e.g. we are obligated owing to tax and commercial law storage obligations to keep documents in reserve such as e.g. contracts and invoices for a certain period of time).
5.2 Technical security
Bürstner uses technical and organisational security measures in order to protect your data managed by us against accidental or wilful manipulations, loss, destruction or against the access of unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with the technological development.
For security reasons and to protect the transfer of confidential contents, such as for example the enquiries, which you send to us as the operator of the sites, this site uses an SSL encryption (Secure Socket Layer) in conjunction with the respective maximum level of encryption that is supported by your browser. As a rule, this is a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support any 256-bit encryption we use instead 128-bit v3 technology. You can recognise whether an individual page of our internet presence is transferred encrypted by the fact that the address line of the browser shifts from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
When the SSL encryption is activated the data, which you transmit to us, cannot be read by third parties.
We would like to point out that the data transmission in the internet (e.g. with the communication per e-mail) may feature security gaps. A consistent protection of the data against the access by third parties is not possible.
5.3 The legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing activities, with which we obtain a consent for a certain processing purpose.
If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a contract, of which the data subject is a contractual party, as this for example is the case with processing activities, which are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, then the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same shall apply to those processing activities which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries for our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation, through which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for example to fulfil tax obligations then the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases the processing of personal data could be necessary in order to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and subsequently his name, his age, his health insurance details or other vital information had to be forwarded to a doctor, a hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR.
In the end processing activities could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing activities are based on this legal basis, which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, if the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activity for the benefit of the wellbeing of all of our employees and our customer.
5.4 Statutory or contractual regulations for the provision of the personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to make the personal data available; possible consequences of the non-provision
We will inform you that the provision of personal data may partly be stipulated by law (e.g. tax regulations) or also for contractual regulations (e.g. details relating to the contractual partner). Among others it may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that a data subject makes personal data available to us, which must be subsequently processed by us. The data subject is for example obligated to make personal data available to us if our company concludes a contract with him. A non-provision of the personal data would result in the fact that the contract could not be concluded with the data subject. Before a provision of personal data by the data subject the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employees will explain to the data subject relating to the individual case whether the provision of the personal data is stipulated by law or by contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether an obligation exists to make the personal data available, and which consequences the failure to provide the personal data would have.
5.6 Rights of the data subjects
You have the right to information about the data stored by us, duration of the data, purpose and legal basis of the storage as well as origin and recipients of transmissions. Incorrect data are to be rectified, inadmissibly stored data or no longer required data are to be erased. Moreover the data subject has a right to object to restriction of the processing as well as the right to data portability.
This information will be created at your request. This information is free.
You additionally have the right to lodge a complaint directly at a supervisory authority.
5.7 Revocation of your consent to the data processing
Several data processing activities are only possible with your explicit consent. You have the possibility to revoke an already granted consent at all times. For this purpose an informal notification to firstname.lastname@example.org per e-mail to us is sufficient. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out until the revocation will remain unaffected by the revocation.
