The protection of your personal data is of the utmost importance to Deufol SE (hereinafter referred to as "we", "us" or "the Controller"). Observing and complying with legal provisions relating to data protection and data security are a matter of course for us. The following information sets out what data we collect when you visit our website, and how this data may be used:
In principle, we process our users' personal data only to the extent that this is necessary to provide a functional website and to provide our content and services. Our users' personal data is processed on a regular basis only with the users' consent. An exception is made in such cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and statutory provisions permit the processing of the personal data.
Provided that we have obtained the data subject's consent to process their personal data, Article 6(1a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for said processing.
For the processing of personal data which is required to perform a contract to which the data subject is party, Art. 6(1b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to take steps prior to entering into a contract.
Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6(1c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If processing is necessary in order to protect the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, Article 6(1f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
Personal data is generally processed in Germany and other European countries. Should we process data in a third country (outside of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)), or should data be processed in the course of using services provided by third parties or be disclosed or transmitted to third parties, this will only take place in order to comply with our contractual obligations or measures prior to formation of a contract, based on your consent, to fulfill a legal requirement or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual authorization, we will process the data or have it processed in a third country only in the event that the particular requirements set out in Articles 44 et seq. GDPR are met. This means that the processing may be based on specific guarantees, such as official recognition that an EU-equivalent level of data protection has been established (e.g. via the Privacy Shield for the USA, https://www.privacyshield.gov) or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (known as standard contractual clauses).
The EU-US Privacy Shield is subject to the adequacy decision (2016/1250) taken by the EU Commission on 12th July 2016, which states that compliance with the regulations of the EU-US Privacy Shield provides an adequate level of data protection for personal data.
The data subject's personal data is erased or blocked once the purpose of storage no longer applies. Data may continue to be stored beyond this point if provided for by European or national legislators in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the Controller is subject. Personal data is also erased or blocked if a storage period stipulated by the aforementioned standards expires, unless the continued storage of the data is required for the formation or performance of a contract.
The Controller responsible for the collection, processing and use of your personal data under the EU General Data Protection Regulation is

In this context, no data is disclosed to third parties outside of the Deufol Group except where necessary to process the initiation of a contract, perform a contract or handle sales inquiries.
We use HubSpot on the basis of the EU standard contractual clauses. HubSpot acts on our behalf as a data processor and solely acts in accordance with our instructions.
HubSpot is certified in accordance with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework:
Each time you request the website, a range of general data and information is collected, processed and made available to us by our service provider HubSpot.

In the event that data is processed in order to make the website available, the data is erased once the respective session ends.
The data processed as part of the analytical functions is pseudonymized using technical means. This ensures that it is no longer possible to link data to the user accessing the site. The data is not stored together with other personal data relating to users.
We offer a wide range of newsletters and downloads on our website. After signing up for our newsletter or consenting to us getting in touch with you on our website, you will receive a confirmation e-mail to the e-mail address you specified when registering (double opt-in process).
Newsletters and e-mails may contain tracking pixels that are requested from HubSpot servers when you open the e-mail in question. This request entails HubSpot collecting data, such as information about the browser and device used, your IP address and the time of the request. In addition, HubSpot records on our behalf whether e-mails are opened, when they are opened and what links are clicked on. These analyses allow us to understand the reading habits of our users and adapt and develop our content accordingly, or to send different content in line with our users' interests.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data in the context of our newsletters or sending e-mails is the consent of the user, in accordance with Article 6(1a) GDPR in conjunction with Section 7(2) no. 3 of the German Act Against Unfair Competition (UWG) where applicable. We are also permitted to send relevant information to data subjects by e-mail on the basis of Section 7(3) UWG.
The HubSpot service provider is used and statistical data collection and analysis are performed on the basis of our legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6(1f) GDPR. Our interest lies in the implementation of a user-friendly and secure newsletter and e-mail system that serves our commercial interests and meets the expectations of our users.
Registrations for our newsletters and consent to us contacting users are logged on the basis of our legitimate interest in being able to demonstrate user registration or consent at any time (Article 6(1f) GDPR).
We store the data you consign to us for the purposes of sending the newsletter until you unsubscribe from the newsletter in question. The same applies to data held for the purpose of remaining in contact with you, which is stored until you withdraw your consent to its storage.
Data that we store for other purposes remains unaffected by this.
Consent given to the receipt of newsletters or e-mails can be withdrawn at any time by using the link at the end of each newsletter or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org to this end.
We maintain a blog on our website which allows you to comment on the posts available.
This function stores the text of the comment, the first name given by the user and their e-mail address. The user may include additional information on an optional basis. We also collect the IP address of the user when they post a comment, and the timestamp for when it was posted. We use Google reCAPTCHA (see section "Google reCAPTCHA") to secure the comment function.
We also offer you the option of sharing, sending or rating blog posts through links to social media platforms. We provide these options via the services provided by Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data relating to a comment on a blog post is the consent given by the user when they post the comment (Article 6(1a) GDPR).

The legal basis for the processing of the personal data transmitted to us in the course of this contact (e.g. using our contact form, sending us an e-mail, using the live chat function, phoning us, contacting us via social media, etc.) is our legitimate interest in processing and responding to requests submitted to us in accordance with Article 6(1f) GDPR. Should personal data be transmitted using our contact form or via the chat function, the consent of the user in accordance with Article 6(1a) GDPR provides an additional legal basis for the processing of such data. The use of our contact form or chat function is logged on the basis of our legitimate interest in being able to demonstrate user consent at any time (Article 6(1f) GDPR).
Where contact is made with a view to forming a contract, Article 6(1b) GDPR provides an additional legal basis for the processing.
