III. Website Provision and Log File Generation

1. Description and scope of data processing

With every visit of our website, our system automatically collects data and information of the computer system of the calling computer.

Following data is collected:

  • information on the browser type and used version
  • the user’s operating system
  • the user’s IP address
  • date and time of the access

The data is stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Legal basis of data processing

Article 6(1) point (f) of the GDPR provides the legal basis for a temporary storage of the data and log files.

3. Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary for the delivery of the website to the user’s computer. The user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.

The information is saved in log files to ensure a proper website functioning. In addition, we use the data to optimise our website and ensure the security of our IT system. In this context, data will not be analysed for marketing purposes.

Our legitimate interest in processing data pursuant to Article 6(1) point (f) of the GDPR is based on these purposes.

4. Duration of the storage

Data will be erased as soon as it is no longer needed to fulfil the purpose of its collection. In the context of data collection to provide the website, it is the case when the session in question is terminated.

Saved log files will be erased no later than after 180 days. A longer storage is possible, in which event the users’ IP addresses will be erased or anonymised so that they can no longer be allocated to the calling client.

5. Right of object and erasure option

It is mandatory to collect the data for the provision of the website and store it in log files to operate the website. Users therefore do not have a right to object to this.

IV. Contact Form and E-Mail Contact

1. Description and scope of data processing

Our website offers a contact form which can be used to contact us in an electronic way. If a user chooses this option, the data entered in the form will be transmitted to us and stored. At the time the message is submitted, the following information will be stored:

  • the user’s IP address
  • • date and time of the submit process

It is also possible to contact us at the provided e-mail address, in which case only the user’s personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.

The information will not be transmitted to third parties, but exclusively used for the processing of the conversation.

2. Legal basis of data processing

Article 6(1) point (f) of the GDPR and Article 6(1) point (b) of the GDPR represent the legal basis for the processing of data transmitted to us when sending us a message.

3. Purpose of data processing

We solely process personal data from the entry form or e-mail to get into contact with a user.

Other personal data processed during submission is used to prevent misuse of the contact form and ensure the security of our IT systems, which represents our legitimate and necessary interest in the processing of the data.

4. Duration of the storage

Data will be erased as soon as it is no longer needed to fulfil the purpose of its collection. For personal data entered and transmitted in the contact form or sent via e-mail, it is the case when the respective conversation with the user has been terminated. A conversation is considered terminated when the situation gives reason to assume that the subject matter has conclusively been settled.

Additional personal data collected during the submission will be erased no later than after seven days.

5. Right of object and erasure option

The user shall have the right to withdraw at any time his/her consent to the processing of his/her personal data. A user who contacts us via e-mail can object at any time to the storage of his/her personal data. In such an event, it will not be possible to continue the conversation.

You can contact us at any time regarding this subject or if you have questions pertaining to the subject of personal data at the address stated in section I. of this declaration or directly send a message to info@centa-star.com.

In this event, all personal data stored in the course of getting into contact with us will be erased.

V. Rights of Data Subject

If your personal data is processed, you are a data subject as defined by the GDPR. You have the following rights to the controller:

1. Right of access

You shall have the right to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether or not we process personal data concerning you.

If that is the case, you shall have the right to obtain from the controller information about the following information:

(1) the purposes of the processing;

(2) the categories of personal data concerned;

(3) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data has been or will be disclosed;

(4) the envisaged period for which your personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period;

(5) the existence of the right to request rectification or erasure of your personal data, the right to request restriction of processing of your personal data by the controller or the right to object to such processing;

(6) the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;

(7) where the personal data is not collected from the data subject, any available information as to their source;

(8) the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22(1) and (4) of the 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.

You shall have the right to be informed whether your personal data is transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you shall have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Article 46 of the GDPR relating to the transfer.

2. Right to rectification

You shall have the right to obtain from the controller rectification and/or completion of inaccurate or incomplete personal data concerning you that was processed. The controller shall rectify the data without undue delay.

3. Right to restriction of processing

You shall have the right to obtain from the controller restriction of processing of your personal data where one of the following applies:

(1) you contest the accuracy of your personal data for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;

(2) the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of your personal data and request the restriction of its use instead;

(3) the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you require it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or

(4) you have objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override your grounds.

Where processing of your personal data has been restricted, such shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

If processing was restricted pursuant the above mentioned situations, the controller shall inform you before the restriction of processing is lifted.

4. Right to erasure

a) Obligation to erasure

You shall have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay and the controller shall have the obligation to erase such data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies:

(1) the personal data concerning you is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed;

(2) you withdraw consent on which the processing is based pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1), or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing;

(3) you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR;

(4) the personal data concerning you has been unlawfully processed;

(5) the personal data has to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject;

(6) the personal data concerning you has been collected in relation to the offer of information society services pursuant to Article 8(1) of the GDPR.

b) Information to third parties

Where the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) of the GDPR to erase such data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers which are processing the personal data that you have requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of such personal data.

c) Exemptions

The right to erasure shall not apply to the extent that processing is necessary:

(1) for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;

(2) for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;

(3) for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Article 9(2) points (h) and (i) as well as Article 9(3) of the GDPR;

(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR in so far as the right referred to in paragraph a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or

(5) for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

5. Right to information

If you have established your right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing to the controller, the controller shall be obliged to inform all recipients to whom personal data concerning you were disclosed about such rectification, erasure or restriction of processing, unless it proves to be impossible or would involve disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed about such recipients by the controller.

6. Right to data portability

You shall have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to the controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transmit such data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data has been provided, where:

(1) the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1) point (a) or Article 9(2) point (a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1) point (b); and

(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.

In exercising this right, you shall also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This right shall not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

The right to data portability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

7. Right to object

You shall have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Article 6(1) point (e) or (f) of the GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.

The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Where personal data concerning you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes.

In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

8. Right to withdraw declaration of consent pertaining to data protection

You shall have the right to withdraw your declaration of consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

9. Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

You shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This shall not apply if the decision:

(1) is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between you and the controller;

(2) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or

(3) is based on your explicit consent.

These decisions shall not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9(1) of the GDPR, unless Article9(2) point (a) or (g) applies and suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.

In the cases referred to in points (1) and (3), the controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express your point of view and to contest the decision.

10. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.

The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78 of the GDPR.
