Privacy Policy

We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is of a partic­ularly high priority for the management of the Fabian Michael – Graphic Design. The use of the Internet pages of the Fabian Michael – Graphic Designis possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the Fabian Michael – Graphic Design. By means of this data protection decla­ration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection decla­ration, of the rights to which they are entitled.

As the controller, the Fabian Michael – Graphic Design has imple­mented numerous technical and organi­za­tional measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data trans­missions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alter­native means, e.g. by telephone.

1. Defin­itions

The data protection decla­ration of the Fabian Michael – Graphic Design is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection decla­ration should be legible and under­standable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the termi­nology used.

In this data protection decla­ration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:

a) Personal data

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.

b) Data subject

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

c) Processing

Processing is 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.

d) Restriction of processing

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

e) Profiling

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.

f) Pseudo­nymi­sation

Pseudo­nymi­sation is 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.

g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing

Controller or controller responsible for the processing is 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.

h) Processor

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

i) Recipient

Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.

j) Third party

Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.

k) Consent

Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affir­mative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

3. Collection of general data and infor­mation

The website of the Fabian Michael – Graphic Design collects a series of general data and infor­mation when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and infor­mation are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (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 referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and infor­mation that may be used in the event of attacks on our infor­mation technology systems.

When using these general data and infor­mation, the Fabian Michael – Graphic Design does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this infor­mation is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its adver­tisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our infor­mation technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the infor­mation necessary for criminal prose­cution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the Fabian Michael – Graphic Design analyzes anony­mously collected data and infor­mation statis­tically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

4. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legis­lators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.

If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.

5. Rights of the data subject

  • The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the verifi­cation whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

If one of the afore­men­tioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of the processing of personal data stored by the Fabian Michael – Graphic Design, he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the Fabian Michael – Graphic Design will arrange the restriction of the processing.

f) Right to data porta­bility

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

The Fabian Michael – Graphic Design shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demon­strate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the estab­lishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If the Fabian Michael – Graphic Design processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

6. Data protection provisions about the appli­cation and use of embedded third-party content and widgets

YouTube

On this website, the controller has integrated components of YouTube. YouTube is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to set video clips and other users free of charge, which also provides free viewing, review and commenting on them. YouTube allows you to publish all kinds of videos, so you can access both full movies and TV broadcasts, as well as music videos, trailers, and videos made by users via the Internet portal.

The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, UNITED STATES. The YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043 – 1351, UNITED STATES.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) was integrated, the Internet browser on the infor­mation technology system of the data subject is automat­ically prompted to download a display of the corre­sponding YouTube component. Further infor­mation about YouTube may be obtained under https://​www​.youtube​.com/​y​t​/​a​b​o​u​t/en/. During the course of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google gain knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in on YouTube, YouTube recognizes with each call-up to a sub-page that contains a YouTube video, which specific sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the data subject. This infor­mation is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.

YouTube and Google will receive infor­mation through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website, if the data subject at the time of the call to our website is logged in on YouTube; this occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such a trans­mission of this infor­mation to YouTube and Google is not desirable for the data subject, the delivery may be prevented if the data subject logs off from their own YouTube account before a call-up to our website is made.

YouTube’s data protection provisions, available at https://​www​.google​.com/​i​n​t​l​/​e​n​/​p​o​l​i​c​i​e​s​/​p​r​i​vacy/, provide infor­mation about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

Vimeo

On this website, the controller has integrated components of Vimeo. Vimeo is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to set video clips and other users free of charge, which also provides free viewing, review and commenting on them. Vimeo allows you to publish all kinds of videos, so you can access both full movies and TV broadcasts, as well as music videos, trailers, and videos made by users via the Internet portal.

The operating company of Vimeo is Vimeo, Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a Vimeo component (Vimeo video) was integrated, the Internet browser on the infor­mation technology system of the data subject is automat­ically prompted to download a display of the corre­sponding Vimeo component. Further infor­mation about Vimeo may be obtained under https://​vimeo​.com/​about. During the course of this technical procedure, Vimeo gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in on Vimeo, Vimeo recognizes with each call-up to a sub-page that contains a Vimeo video, which specific sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the data subject. This infor­mation is collected by Vimeo and assigned to the respective Vimeo account of the data subject.

Vimeo will receive infor­mation through the Vimeo component that the data subject has visited our website, if the data subject at the time of the call to our website is logged in on Vimeo; this occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on a Vimeo video or not. If such a trans­mission of this infor­mation to Vimeo is not desirable for the data subject, the delivery may be prevented if the data subject logs off from their own Vimeo account before a call-up to our website is made.

Vimeo’s data protection provisions, available at https://​vimeo​.com/​p​r​ivacy, provide infor­mation about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Vimeo.

7. Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for 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 party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax oblig­ations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital infor­mation would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the above­men­tioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or funda­mental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are partic­ularly permissible because they have been specif­ically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

8. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the share­holders.

9. Period for which the personal data will be stored

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corre­sponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

10. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible conse­quences of failure to provide such data

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. infor­mation on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subse­quently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the conse­quence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the conse­quences of non-provision of the personal data.

11. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
