Data Protection Statement of Novum Management GmbH

We appreciate you visiting our websites and we thank you for your interest in our company. Protection of personal data is a very important issue for us. Therefore, the processing of personal data of a data subject, for instance of names, postal or e-mail addresses and phone numbers, is carried out in accordance with the applicable European and national legislation.

If data processing is necessary, but there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally request a consent from the data subject.

You can revoke your declaration of consent with future effect at any time. Please contact then the controller. Contact information is indicated at the end of this data protection statement.

In the following chapters, our company Novum Management GmbH would like to inform the general public about nature, extent and purpose of the data processed. In this data protection statement the persons concerned shall furthermore be informed of the rights granted to them.

 

Definitions

The data protection statement of our company, Novum Management GmbH, is based on the terms, which the European legislative and regulatory authority uses in the EU General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter called “GDPR”). Our data protection statement aims to be easy to read and to understand by general public as well as by our guests or business partners. To guarantee this we shall first explain the terms used.

We use in this data protections statement and on our internet homepage, inter alia, following terminology:

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ('data subject'). An identifiable natural 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.

Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the party responsible for the processing.

Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of 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.

Restriction of processing means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.

Profiling means 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 at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a manner 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 organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Controller or the party responsible for the processing means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of 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.

Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not.

Cooperation with processors and third parties

If we disclose data to other people and companies (processors or third parties) as part of our processing, transmit them to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of legal permission (e.g. if the data is transmitted to third parties, as to payment service providers, in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 b GDPR for the fulfillment of the contract), you have consented, a legal obligation provides for this or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).

If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called "order processing contract", this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.

 

Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller processes (in this connection also: stores) the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage or,

if the processing is required by the European legislative and regulatory authorities, or laid down in another law or regulation to which the controller is liable.

If the purpose of the storage ceases to apply, or if a storage period prescribed by the European directives and regulations or by any other relevant legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions

Privacy in recruitment and in the application process

The controller collects and processes personal data for the purposes of the application procedure. The processing can also be done electronically. This is particularly the case where an applicant submits the corresponding documents to the controller by means of electronic communications, e.g. by e-mail. If the controller concludes a contract of employment with one applicant, the transmitted data are stored for the purpose of executing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude a contract of employment with any of the applicants, the application documents will automatically be deleted six months after the notification of letter of rejection, provided that deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interests of the controller. In this context other legitimate interest means for instance a burden of proof in legal proceedings pursuant to the General Law on Equal Treatment (AGG).

Security of personal data

Our company, Novum Management GmbH, shall take numerous technical and organizational measures in order to protect your personal data against accidental or illegal destruction, alteration, loss, unlawful disclosure or unauthorized access.

Nevertheless, for instance internet-based data transfer can principally bear gaps in the security, and therefore absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, any data subject is free to communicate personal data to us in an alternative way, for instance by telephone.

Website Encryption

This site uses SSL- or rather TLS-encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the requests you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http: //" to "https: //" and by the lock symbol in the browser line.

If encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Collection of general data and information

The website of Novum Management GmbH collects a number of general data and information each time the website is accessed by data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. Following data can be collected:

  • browser types and versions used
  • operating system used by the accessing computer
  • website from which an accessing system gets to our website (so called referrers)
  • sub-websites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website
  • date and time of access to our website
  • web protocol address (IP address)
  • Internet service provider of the accessing system
  • other similar data and information, which is used to protect our information technology systems against possible attacks

When using this general data and information, our company, Novum Management GmbH, does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. In fact, this information is needed in order:

  • to deliver the contents of our website correctly
  • to optimize the content of our website as well as possibly the advertising for it
  • to ensure long-term functionality of our information technology systems and of the technology on our website
  • to provide law enforcement authorities with necessary information related to criminal prosecution in case of a cyberattack

This collected data and information is therefore evaluated by our company, Novum Management GmbH, on the one hand statistically, and on the other hand to increase data protection and data security in our company, and last but not least to ensure the best possible level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by the data subject.

This data is not amalgamated with other data sources.

This data is recorded on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of his website - the server log files must be recorded for this.

 

Request by E-Mail, Phone or Fax

If you contact us by e-mail, phone or fax, your request, including all personal data resulting from it (name, request), will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of inquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this was queried.

The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - especially legal storage periods - remain unaffected.

 

Data transmission via web form

Data subject has an option to register on the website of the controller stating his or her personal data. During the registration process the respective entry windows indicate, which personal data are transmitted to the controller. The personal data entries made by the data subject are exclusively intended for internal use of the controller, this data is collected and stored for the purposes of own use. The controller can transmit the data to one or to several processor(s), e.g. to parcel service which also makes only internal use of the personal data and acts under the responsibility of the controller.

By registration on the website of the controller the following data is also stored: data subject’s IP address, which the internet service provider has assigned, the date and the exact time at the moment of the registration. These data are stored against the background of being the only way to prevent misuse of our services. If necessary, these data can enable clearing up offences or copyright infringements committed. Insofar it is necessary to store this data as to protect the controller. In general, these data are not transmitted to a third party, unless there is a legal obligation to a transmission, or the data transmission serves legal pursuit of rights or criminal prosecution.

When the data subject registers himself or herself on the website and voluntarily supplies personal data, it enables the controller to offer to him or her content and services, which can by the very nature of the issues only be offered to registered users.

This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of inquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this was queried.

The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - especially legal storage periods - remain unaffected.

 

Links to other websites

Our websites contain links to other websites (so called external links).

Our company, Novum Management GmbH, is as a supplier responsible for the contents of our own as required by the European and national legislation in force. Our own contents are to be distinguished from links to contents provided by other suppliers. We have no influence over whether or not operators of other websites comply with the European and national data protection regulations in force. Please learn more about the data protection statements on the websites of the respective suppliers

Cookies

We use cookies in order to further improve our internet presentation for you, make it more user-friendly and to tailor it as well as possible to meet your needs. Cookies are small text data files, which a webserver sends to your internet browser when you visit a website. The cookies are stored locally on your terminal (personal computer, notebook, tablet, smartphone etc.).

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain so called cookie ID, which is a unique identifier of the cookie. Cookie ID consists of a string of characters through which websites and servers can trace back the actual web browser, on which the cookie is stored. This allows the visited web pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other web browsers that contain other cookies. A specific web browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID. The purpose of this information is to automatically recognize you and to facilitate your navigation, when you visit the website again with the same device.

You can also consent or reject cookies - also for web tracking - via the settings of your web browser. You can configure your web browser so that it blocks cookies generally, or you will be warned in advance when a new cookie is about to be stored. In this case, however, the functionality of the website may be impaired (for example when placing orders). Your browser also offers a function to delete cookies (for instance by choosing “Clear browsing data”. This is possible in all common web browsers. Further information can be found in the user manual or in the settings of your browser.

First-party cookies: First-party cookies are permanent cookies that are stored on the computer and only lose their validity when the expiry date assigned to them has expired. The word "party" refers to the domain from which the cookie originated. In contrast to third-party cookies, first-party cookies usually come from the website operator itself. They are therefore not accessible to browsers across domains. For example, website A assigns a cookie A, which is not recognized by website B, but can only be recognized by website A. This means that data cannot be passed on to third parties.

Third-party cookies: With a third-party cookie, the cookie is set and recorded by a third party. These cookies are mostly used by advertisers who use their cookies on other websites to collect information about website visitors using the cookies. These are data records that are stored in the user's web browser when he visits a page with the advertisement. If he visits a page with advertising from the same provider again, he will be recognized.

 

Newsletter via MailChimp

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter . No further data is collected, or only on a voluntary basis. We only use this data to send the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing that has already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you have stored with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that we have stored for other purposes remains unaffected.

This website uses the services of MailChimp for sending newsletters. The provider is Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA (hereinafter referred to as "MailChimp").

MailChimp is a service with which the dispatch of newsletters can be organized and analyzed. If you enter data for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (e.g. e-mail address), it will be stored on MailChimp's servers in the USA.

MailChimp complies with the “EU-US Privacy Shield”. The “Privacy Shield” is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the USA, which is intended to ensure compliance with European data protection standards in the USA.

We have concluded a "Data Processing Addendum" with MailChimp. In this we oblige MailChimp to protect our customers' data and not to pass them on to third parties.

With the help of MailChimp we can analyze our newsletter campaigns. When you open an e-mail sent with MailChimp, a file contained in the e-mail (so-called "web beacon") connects to the servers of MailChimp in the USA. In this way it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on. In addition, technical information is recorded (e.g. time of access, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information is used only for statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyzes can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.

If you do not want an analysis by MailChimp, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message.

Data processing is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the data processing that has already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you have stored with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter both from our servers and from the servers of MailChimp. Data that we have stored for other purposes remain unaffected.
