§ 2 General information on data processing

Scope of the processing of personal data

As a matter of principle, we only process personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website as well as our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

Overview of the legal basis for processing 

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves as our legal basis for processing operations in 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, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of requests for services.

If our BNB is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR.

Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary for the protection of a legitimate interest of BNB or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR). If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees.

Data deletion and storage period

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a necessity for the continued storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

§ 3 Provision of the website and creation of log files

Description and scope of data processing


Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. The following data is collected:
Information about the type of browser and the version used.

  • The user’s operating system
  • The user’s internet service provider
  • The IP address of the user
  • Date and time of access
  • Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website
  • Websites that are accessed by the user’s system via our website
     

This data is also stored in the log files of our system. Not affected by this are the IP addresses of the user or other data that enable the data to be assigned to a user. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

Legal basis for data processing 

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Purpose of data processing 

The purpose of creating log files is to simplify the use of websites for users and to ensure the stability of the website display.

Duration of storage 

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

Possibility of objection and removal 

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.

§ 4 Contact form and e-mail contact

Description and scope of data processing

Our website contains a contact form which can be used to contact us electronically. If a user takes advantage of this option, the data entered in the input mask is transmitted to us and stored. These data are:

  • The IP address of the user
  • Date and time of registration 

 

For the processing of the data, your consent is obtained during the submission process and reference is made to this data protection declaration. Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.

In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation.

§ 5 Newsletter

Description and scope of data processing

On our website, you have the option of subscribing to a free newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, the data from the input mask is transmitted to us. In addition, the following data is collected during registration:

  • IP address of the calling computer
  • Date and time of registration
  • First and last name
     

For the processing of the data, your consent is obtained during the registration process and reference is made to this data protection declaration. No data will be passed on to third parties in connection with the processing of data for the dispatch of newsletters. The data is used exclusively for sending the newsletter.

Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of data after the user has registered for the newsletter is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR if the user has given his or her consent.

Insofar as we commission a service provider to send e-mails, this is done on the basis of our legitimate interests. The registration process is recorded on the basis of our legitimate interests in order to prove that it was carried out in accordance with the law.

Purpose of the data processing 

The purpose of collecting the user’s email address is to deliver the newsletter. The collection of other personal data during the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used. Furthermore, the newsletter is used for direct marketing purposes.

We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are single-pixel image files stored on our website. For the evaluations, we link the data mentioned in paragraph 1 and the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. Links received in the newsletter also contain this ID. The data is only collected pseudonymously, i.e. the IDs are not linked to your other personal data, a direct personal reference is excluded.

Duration of storage

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. The user’s e-mail address is therefore stored for as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active. The other personal data collected during the registration process is usually deleted after a period of seven days.

Possibility of objection and removal 

You can revoke your consent to the processing of your data at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can declare the revocation by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter e-mail, via this form on the website, by e-mail to [email protected] or by sending a message to the contact details given in the imprint.

§ 6 Other plugins and embedded functions and content from Google Ireland Limited

Description, scope and purpose of data processing

We use content or service offers from Google Ireland Limited within our online offer in order to integrate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”).

This always requires that the third-party providers of this content are aware of the IP address of the user, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to their browser. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. We endeavour to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content.

Third-party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other information about the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.

In addition, we use ReCaptcha, which evaluates the behavioural data of users (e.g. mouse movements or queries) for us in order to be able to distinguish humans from bots. 

Legal basis for data processing 

If we ask users to consent to the use of third-party providers, the legal basis for the processing of data is consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). Otherwise, users’ data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in efficient, economical and recipient-friendly services) (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). In this context, we would also like to refer you to the information on the use of cookies in this privacy policy.

Services used and service providers

When entering forms, we use the ReCaptcha service to detect bots. We use the YouTube service to implement videos. The service provider behind this is “Google Ireland Limited”, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, parent company: Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Website; Privacy Policy.

Joint responsibility, duration of storage 

We have entered into the binding agreement (so-called “Controller Addendum”) with Facebook pursuant to Art. 26 (1) sentence 2 of the GDPR between joint controllers, in which in particular the obligations under data protection law and the implementation of data subject rights are agreed. This agreement can be downloaded from the website of Facebook  or by post at the address provided above.
