In no case will the collected data be sold or passed on to third parties.

hereinafter referred to as the "BPO Consulting Group“ or „BPO“.

III. General information about the data processing
- Scope of data processing
We do not collect or use any personal data of the users of our website. The personal data of our users are only collected and used after the user has given their consent when they contact us. An exception applies in cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
2. Data protection declaration for Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics provided by
Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland (hereinafter: Google).
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
- Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the data subject's consent for processing personal data, Article 6 (1) lit. EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
When processing personal data, which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
- Deletion of data and duration of storage
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage can also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
IV. Provision of the website and creation of log files
According to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), every responsible body that orders the processing of personal data must conclude a contract for order processing (AVV).
As a customer of "1&1 Internet SE Elgendorfer Str. 57, 56410 Montabaur", hereinafter referred to as "1&1", personal data may be stored on 1&1's servers. As soon as personal data is stored or processed on the systems of 1&1, we have to secure ourselves legally in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.
For this reason, we have concluded a contract for order processing (AVV) with 1&1. With this agreement, our customers or persons who contact us electronically have legally confirmed the security of the data on the servers of 1&1 Internet SE.
Regardless of the services we use individually, this generally applies to 1&1 for:
- Server: Cloud Server, Virtual Server Cloud, Managed Cloud Hosting, Dedicated Server, Bare Metal Server, Dynamic Cloud Server, Container Cluster
- Web hosting & homepage: web hosting, Linux hosting, WordPress hosting, MyWebsite, e-shop, ipayment
- Office & Online Marketing: online accounting, email marketing
This ensures that 1&1 Internet SE explicitly confirms the legally compliant implementation of the legal data protection requirements.
V. Contact form, email contact and newsletter
- Description and scope of data processing
There is no separate contact form on our website, but the e-mail address of the BPO colleague addressed by the website user is transferred to the user's own e-mail program. The personal data of the user transmitted when sending the email is saved.
In this context, the data is not passed on to third parties. The data will only be used to process the conversation.
- Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an email is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If the email contact aims to conclude a contract, then an additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR.
- Purpose of data processing
The processing of personal data serves us only to establish contact. If you contact us by email, this is also the necessary legitimate interest in the processing of the data.
- Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For personal data sent by email, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation ends when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally clarified.
Any additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.
- Rights of rectification and erasure
The user has the possibility to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by email, they can object to the storage of their personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.
In order to object to the storage of personal data when contacting us per email, it is sufficient to notify us directly in the email sent, to object to the storage in a later email or to notify us of the objection by phone call. The contact person is then the respective colleague of the BPO Consulting Group.
In this case, all personal data saved in the course of contacting us will be deleted.
There is no option to subscribe to a newsletter on our website. Therefore, no personal data is collected in this context.
The other personal data collected during the registration process is usually deleted after a period of seven days.
