Thank you for your interest in ?respondeo!® - Unternehmensberatung. Data protection is particularly important to the owner of ?respondeo!® - Unternehmensberatung. The websites of ?respondeo!® - Unternehmensberatung and the associated websites of can generally be used without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary 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 General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to ?respondeo!® - Unternehmensberatung. With this Data Protection Declaration, ?respondeo!® - Unternehmensberatung would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed about their rights by means of this Data Protection Declaration.

?respondeo!® - Unternehmensberatung, as the person responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the highest protection of personal data possible processed via this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can 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 post.


The Data Protection Declaration of ?respondeo!® - Unternehmensberatung is based on the terms used by the European Legislator and Regulator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO). Our Data Protection Declaration should be easy to read and understand for both the public and 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 Data Protection Declaration:

3. Cookies

In order to design the ?respondeo!® - Unternehmensberatung website according to your needs and to collect certain information, we use various technologies, including so-called cookies. Cookies are used to simplify Internet, use and communication. 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 of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers 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.

By using cookies, ?respondeo!® - Unternehmensberatung can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without cookies.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized for the user. Cookies enable us, as already mentioned, 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 access data each time he visits the website because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in an online shop. The online shop remembers the articles that a customer has added to the virtual shopping cart.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set 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. Collection of General Data and Information

The website of ?respondeo!® - Unternehmensberatung collects a series of general data and information every time a person or an automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. We may record (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer), (4) the subwebsites 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 providers of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, ?respondeo!® - Unternehmensberatung does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned, even if, for example, the person concerned could be identified by combining data, time and IP address by consulting the Internet provider to which the IP address is assigned. However, ?respondeo!® - Unternehmensberatung does not carry out such searches. Rather, the aforementioned information is required in order (1) to correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) to optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) to ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by ?respondeo!® - Unternehmensberatung both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company ultimately in order to ensure 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.

5. Registration on our Website

The data subject may register on the website of the controller, providing personal data. The personal data transferred to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject is collected and stored exclusively for the purpose of drawing up contracts between ?respondeo!® - Unternehmensberatung and the data subject, for internal use by the data controller and for the data controller own purposes. The controller may arrange for the data to be transferred to one or more processors, such as a parcel service, who also uses the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to the controller.

Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the internet service provider (ISP) to the data subject, the date and time of registration are stored when the data subject registers on the data controller's website. This data is stored against the background that this is the only way to prevent misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable to investigate criminal offences committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to protect the data controller. A transfer of these data to third parties does not take place in principle, unless there is the legal obligation for such transfer on or the transfer on serves the criminal prosecution.

Registration of the data subject with the voluntary provision of personal data serves the controller to offer the data subject content or services which, by their 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 database of the data controller if this data is not necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or has to be stored due to legal requirements.

The controller shall at all times, upon request, inform each data subject of the personal data relating to that data subject. Furthermore, the controller corrects or deletes personal data at the request or notice of the data subject, provided that there are no legal storage obligations to the contrary or the data are required for the fulfilment of the contract.

6. Contact via the Website

Due to legal requirements, the website of ?respondeo!® - Unternehmensberatung 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). If a data subject contacts the data controller via e-mail or a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data voluntarily provided by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties. Communication by e-mail without end-to-end encryption is generally not secure, so that it is generally possible that the data transmitted in this way may come to the knowledge of third parties.

7. Routine Deletion and Blocking of Personal Data

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the time necessary to achieve the data retention purpose or to the extent provided for by the European regulator or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislaor and regulator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

8. Rights of the Data Subject

Article 6 I letter (a) DS-GVO provides our company with 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 a party, such as processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or other services or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I letter (b) DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing processes that 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 requiring the processing of personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I letter c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the 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 his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. The processing would then be based on Article 6 I letter (d) DS-GVO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Article 6 Iletter (f) DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. Such processing procedures are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, the Europeand Legislator and regulator took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47, second sentence, DS-DVO).

10. 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 letter (f) DS-GVO, it is in our legitimate interest to conduct our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.

11. Duration for which the Personal Data is Stored

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

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In some cases, it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded if 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 enters into a contract with him/her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject may contact our Data Protection Officer. Our Data Protection Officer will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the failure to provide the personal data would have.

13. Existence of Automated Decision Making

As a responsible company, we do not make use of automatic decision-makings or profilings.

This Data Protection Declaration applies solely to all websites for which easygrading and respondeo are responsible. Our websites may contain links to websites of other companies.
