3. Recipients and categories of recipients: Any access to your personal data at GUD is limited to those persons who require knowledge in order to fulfil their professional tasks. Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties (e.g. courts or law enforcement authorities) if we are obliged to do so by law, if you have given your consent or if the passing on is otherwise legally permissible.
We may transfer your personal data to the following recipients and recipient categories in particular for the respective purposes:
a. Contract data processor. Just like others, we depend on the services of third parties, such as our data center. Our service providers are subject to local data protection laws and are also contractually obliged to process the personal data exclusively on our behalf and according to our instructions. We also oblige our service providers to comply with technical and organisational measures to ensure the protection of personal data;
b. public authorities, courts, external consultants and similar third parties who are public authorities. To the extent required or permitted by applicable law.
4. Duration of storage and deletion: Your personal data will be kept by us for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes of the consent. If we no longer need your personal data to comply with contractual or legal obligations, it will be deleted from our systems or made correspondingly anonymous, so that identification is not possible. Something else only applies if we have to fulfil legal or official obligations, e.g. legal retention periods, which can result from the Commercial Code or the Tax Code and can generally last 6 to 10 years, or if evidence has to be secured during the legal limitation periods, which normally amount to 3 years but can amount to up to 30 years.
If your contact information is of fundamental interest, you hereby give us your consent to store your data accordingly.
5 Data security: We attach great importance to the greatest possible security of our system and use modern data storage and security technologies to protect your data optimally. These include measures such as antivirus software or a firewall. It goes without saying that our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
