Data Protection

Thank you for your interest in our company.
Data protection is of the utmost importance to the management of SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG

The processing of personal data, such as a data subject’s name, address, e-mail address or telephone number, will always be carried out in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG and the German Data Protection Act. The aim of our company’s privacy policy is to inform visitors to our website www.sashagmann.de of the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. This privacy policy also informs data subjects of the rights to which they are entitled.

If, however, a data subject wishes to access, via our website, some of the specific services offered by our company, the processing of personal data may become necessary. If it is necessary to process personal data, and if there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the data subject’s consent.
As the data controller, SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure that personal data processed via this website are protected as comprehensively as possible. However, Internet-based data transmissions are generally vulnerable to security gaps with the result that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, data subjects are free to use alternative means (e.g. the telephone) for transferring personal data to us.

1. Definition of terms
SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG’s privacy policy uses the terms adopted by the European legislator for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our privacy policy is intended to be easy to read and understand both for visitors to the website and for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to start by explaining the terminology used.
This privacy policy includes use of the following terms:

a) Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as “data subject”). An identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b) Data subject
A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the data controller.

c) Processing
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, synchronization or linking, restriction, erasure or destruction.

d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the flagging up of stored personal data with the aim of restricting future processing of said data.

e) Profiling
Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

f) Pseudonymization
Pseudonymization 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 use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Controller or data controller
Controller or data controller means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of processing personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

h) External processor
An external processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

i) Recipient
The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body, to which personal data are disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients.

j) Third party
A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the external processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or external processor, are authorized to process personal data.

k) Consent
Consent of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which the data subject, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of his personal data.

Where the purpose for which the data are stored no longer applies or the retention period mandated by European law has expired, personal data will be made unavailable to users (blocked) as a matter of routine or erased in compliance with the relevant legal provisions.

9. Rights of data subjects

a) Right of access by the data subject (Article 15 GDPR)
All data subjects affected by the processing of personal data have the right, under European law, to obtain from the data controller at any time, and free of charge, information about any personal data being held on them, and to receive a copy of any such information. European law also mandates that the data subject shall have the right to obtain the following information:
the purposes of the processing
the categories of personal data concerned
the recipients or categories of recipient to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organizations
where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period
the existence of the right to request from the controller rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing of personal data concerning the data subject or to object to such processing
the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
where the personal data are not collected from the data subject: any available information as to the source of the data
the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) GDPR and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject
The data subject also has a right to be informed as to whether personal data have been transmitted to a third country or to an international organization. Where this is the case, the data subject has the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer.
A data subject wishing to avail himself of this right of access may do so at any time by contacting an employee of the data controller.

b) Right to rectification (Article 16 GDPR)
Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right, under European law, to demand the prompt rectification of any incorrect personal data relating to him. Furthermore, and taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject has the right to demand the completion of incomplete personal data – including by means of a supplementary statement.
A data subject wishing to avail himself of this right to rectification may do so at any time, by contacting an employee of the data controller.

c) Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’ (Article 17 GDPR))
Data subjects affected by the processing of personal data have the right, under European law, to request from the data controller the prompt erasure of any personal data relating to him where one of the following reasons applies and provided there is no need for the processing of these data:
the personal data were collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer required;
the data subject withdraws consent on which the processing is based pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR, or point (a) of Article 9(2) GDPR, and there is no other legal ground for the processing;
the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) GDPR;
the personal data have been unlawfully processed;
the personal data have to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject;
the personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services pursuant to Article 8(1) GDPR.
Provided one of the above-mentioned grounds for erasure applies, a data subject wishing to arrange for the erasure of personal data stored by SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG may do so at any time by contacting an employee of the data controller. The employee of SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG will then ensure that this request for erasure is complied with promptly.
Where SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG has made the personal data public and where, as the data controller, our company is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) GDPR to erase said personal data, SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG, taking into account both available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers that are processing the published personal data that the data subject has requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, except where processing is necessary. In each individual case, the employee of SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG will make the necessary arrangements.

d) Right to restriction of processing (Article 18 GDPR)
Data subjects affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right, under European law, to request from the controller the restriction of processing of such data where one of the following applies:
the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead;
the controller no longer requires the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
the data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) GDPR, and it has not yet been ascertained whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
Provided one of the above-mentioned preconditions is fulfilled, a data subject wishing to demand the restriction of personal data stored by SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG may do so at any time by contacting an employee of the data controller. The employee of SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG will then arrange the restriction of processing.

e) Right to data portability (Article 20 GDPR)
Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right, under European law, to receive the personal data concerning him, which he has provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He also has the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been made available, provided the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, 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 exercising his right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) GDPR, the data subject also has the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another insofar as this is technically feasible and does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.
A data subject wishing to avail himself of this right to data portability may do so at any time by contacting an employee of SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG.

f) Right to object
Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right, under European law, to object, on grounds relating to his particular situation, at any time, to the processing of personal data concerning him which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.
In this case, SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG shall no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or if processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG processes personal data in order to carry out direct advertising, the data subject has the right, at any time, to object to the processing of the personal data for the purposes of such advertising. This also applies to profiling in conjunction with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG processing the data for the purposes of direct advertising, SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG shall no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
Furthermore, where personal data are processed by SAS- hagmann GmbH & Co.KG for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) GDPR, the data subject, on grounds relating to his particular situation, has the right to object to processing of personal data concerning him, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

A data subject wishing to exercise the right to object may do so by directly contacting any employee of SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG. Insofar as your personal data are processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to point (f) of the first subparagraph of Article 6(1) GDPR, you have the right, pursuant to Article 21 GDPR, to object to the processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation or if your objection relates to direct advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right to object that we shall implement without the need for you to specify your particular situation. Should you wish to exercise your right of revocation or your right to object, an e-mail to info@sashagmann.de shall suffice for this.
This does not affect the data processing carried out prior to the exercising of the right of revocation or the right to object.

g) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right, under European law, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or similarly significantly affects him. This does not apply if the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and the data controller; or (2) is authorized by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or (3) is based on the data subject’s express consent.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is based on the data subject’s explicit consent, SAS-hagmann GmbH & Co.KG shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his point of view and to contest the decision.
A data subject wishing to avail himself of his rights pertaining to automated individual decision-making may do so at any time by contacting an employee of the data controller.

h) Right to withdraw consent (Article 7(3) GDPR)
Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right, under European law, to withdraw consent for the processing of personal data at any time. The consequence of this is that we are no longer permitted in the future to perform the data processing that is based on this consent.

i) Right to complain
Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right, in accordance with Article 77 GDPR, to complain to a supervisory authority. Generally speaking, you can contact the supervisory authority at your usual place of residence, your workplace or our company headquarters.

7. Data protection arrangements for applicants and the application process
The data controller shall collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of administering the application process. This processing may include processing by electronic means, particularly in cases where an applicant transmits the corresponding application documents to the data controller by electronic means, such as via e-mail or by using an online form on the website. If the data controller enters into a contract of employment with the applicant, the transmitted data shall be stored for the purpose of administering the employment relationship and in compliance with the relevant legal provisions. If the data controller does not enter into a contract of employment with the applicant, the application documents shall automatically be erased two months after the decision to decline employment was announced, provided that erasure does not conflict with the legitimate interests of the data controller. In this context, other legitimate interests may include burden of proof obligations relating to proceedings under the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

8. Legal basis for processing
In our company, point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR serves as the 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 when completing processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the delivery of any other service or completion of payment, this processing shall be based on point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR. The same also applies to processing operations whose completion is necessary prior to entering into a contract, such as when receiving inquiries regarding our products or services. If the processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, such as compliance with tax obligations, this processing shall be based on point (c) of Article 6(1) GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This might be the case, for example, if a visitor is injured while on our premises, resulting in the need to pass on his name, age, health insurance details or other vital information to a physician, hospital or other third party. In this case, processing would be based on point (d) of Article 6(1) GDPR. Finally, processing operations could also be based on point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. This provides the legal basis for processing operations not covered by any of the aforementioned points, where said processing is necessary for the purpose of safeguarding the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights or freedoms of the data subject. Our permission to undertake these processing operations stems in particular from the fact that they are specifically referred to by the European legislator. The legislator was of the opinion that such legitimate interest could be presumed where the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47, Sentence 2, GDPR).

9) Duration for which the personal data will be stored
The criterion used to determine the duration of storage of personal data is the relevant statutory retention period. After the end of the retention period, the corresponding data will be erased as a matter of routine insofar as they are no longer required for entering into, or performance of, a contract.

10) Statutory or contractual requirements regarding the provision of personal data
A requirement necessary to enter into a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data:
We will inform you as to whether the provision of personal data is in part a statutory requirement (e.g. tax regulations) or whether it is the result of contractual requirements (e.g. information relating to the contract partner). It may sometimes be necessary, in order to enter into a contract, for a data subject to provide us with personal data, which we will subsequently need to process. For instance, the data subject has an obligation to provide us with personal data if our company is to enter into a contract with that person. Failure to provide such data would prevent us from entering into a contract with that person. The person concerned must contact one of our employees prior to providing personal data. Our employee will then (on a case-by-case basis) provide the data subject with the following information: whether the provision of personal data is a statutory or contractual requirement or a requirement for entering into a contract, whether the data subject is obliged to provide personal data, and the possible consequences of failure to provide such data.

11) Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do without automated decision-making or profiling.

12) Data security
We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal details confidentially and in accordance with the applicable statutory data protection regulations as well as in accordance with this privacy policy.
For security reasons, and to protect the transmission of confidential contents that you send to us in our capacity as operator of this site, such as orders or inquiries, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the padlock icon in your browser line.
When SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Furthermore, we take technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or total loss or destruction, and unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are subject to a process of ongoing improvement in accordance with technological development.
We draw your attention to the fact that data transmission via the Internet (e.g. communication via e-mail) is potentially vulnerable to security gaps. Seamless protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

13) Validity and amendment of this privacy policy
This privacy policy is currently valid and was last amended on 25 May 2018.
As a result of the development of our website and services, or on the basis of altered statutory or regulatory requirements, it may become necessary to amend this privacy policy. You can access and print out the currently applicable privacy policy at any time on the website under:
