2. Name and address of the data protection officer
With regard to the present legal situation, according to Sec. 38 Para. 1 BDSG we (ARO Control) are not obliged to appoint a data protection officer.
Our data protection information is based on the definitions which have been used by the European directive and order issuing office in formulating the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The data protection information should be easily read and understood not only by the general public but also by our customers and business partners. In order to ensure this, we would like to clarify in advance the definitions used.
In this data protection information and on our website, we use – amongst others – the following terms:
3.1 Personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereafter “data subject”). Defined as identifiable is a natural person 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.
3.2 Data subject
Data subject is each identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller for the processing.
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is carried out in connection with personal data – whether or not by automated means – such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
3.4 Restricting of the processing
Restricting of the processing is the marking of personal data as stored with the objective of restricting its processing in the future.
Profiling is each type of the automated processing of personal data, which consists of this personal data being used to permit particular personal aspects relating to a particular natural person, and here in particular aspects in respect of work performance, economic situation, health, personal likes, interests, reliability, behaviour, place of residence or change of place of residence of this natural person to be evaluated, analysed or forecast.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, in so far as this additional information is kept in a special way and subjected to technical and organizational measures which ensure that the personal data cannot be assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
3.7 Controller or party responsible for the processing
Controller or party responsible for the processing (hereafter controller) is the natural person or legal entity, authority, institution or other post, which alone or together with others decides on the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. If the purposes and means of the processing are laid down in European Union legislation or the legislation of the member states, then the controller or the particular criteria of the appointment of this controller in accordance with European Union legislation or the legislation of the member states can be provided.
Processor is a natural person or legal entity, authority, institution or other post, which processes the personal data on the instructions of the controller.
Recipient is a natural person or legal entity, authority, institution or other post to which personal data are disclosed regardless of whether this is a third party or not. However, authorities, which receive within the framework of a particular investigation order in accordance with European Union legislation or the legislation of the member states data which possibly may be/contain personal data, do not hold good as recipients.
3.10 Third party
Third party is a natural person or legal entity, authority, institution or other post with the exception of the data subject, the controller, the order processor and those persons which are authorized under the direct responsibility of the controller or of the order processor to process the personal data.
Consent is each declaration of will given voluntarily by the data subject for the definite case in an informed and unambiguous manner in the form of a declaration or other unambiguous confirmatory action, with which the data subject makes clear that he/she agrees to the processing of personal data relating to himself/herself.
4. General information on data processing
For us data protection, data security and data secrecy hold high priority. The durable protection of your personal data, of your company data and of your business secrets is especially important for us.
You can always visit our website without making statements on your person. However, if you wish to make use of the services of our company, then this makes the stating of personal data necessary. As a rule we use the data that you communicate and that is collected by the website as well as the data stored in the course of the use solely for our own purposes, namely for the execution and making available of our website and the initiation, execution and progressing of the services/offers made available via the website (contract fulfilment) and do not pass this data on to external third parties in so far as there is not an official obligation to do this. In all other cases we obtain your special agreement.
The processing of your personal data is carried out in conformity with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and in conformity with the country-specific data protection regulations holding good for us. With the aid of this data protection information we wish to inform you on the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data processed by ourselves. In addition, we clarify for you with the aid of this data protection information the rights to which you are entitled.
We have realized technical and organizational measures in order to ensure an appropriate level of protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, fundamentally Internet-based data transmissions can have security loopholes so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.
5. Collecting of general data and information
Our website collects a range of general data and information each time the website is called by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. Able to be collected are: (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 sub-websites, which are steered to on our website via an accessing system, (5) the date and time of an access to the website, (6) an Internet-protocol-address (IP-address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information, which serve the warding off of hazards in the case of attacks to our IT systems.
In using this general data and information we draw no conclusions about the data subject. Much more is this information needed (1) to be able to deliver out the content of our website correctly, (2) to permit the optimization of the content of our website and of the advertising for this, (3) to ensure the durable functionality of our IT systems and of the technology of our website and (4) to be able to make available to the law enforcement authorities the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the case of a cyber-attack. This anonymously collected data and information is evaluated by us on the one hand statistically and on the other hand with the objective of increasing the data protection and the data security in our company in order finally to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by ourselves. The anonymous data of the server-log files are stored separately from all the personal data stated by a data subject.
