Data protection

We are very pleased that you are interested in our company. The management of TFS global hanger management GmbH gives great importance to data protection. The use of the TFS global hanger management GmbH website is generally possible without providing any personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special services offered by our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, email address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to TFS global hanger management GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, this data protection declaration informs concerned persons about the rights to which they are entitled.

TFS global hanger management GmbH, as the data controller, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, any person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as by telephone.

1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of TFS global hanger management GmbH is based on the terms used by the European directive and regulatory authority when the basic data protection regulation (DS-GVO) was issued. Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use, inter alia, the following terms in this data privacy policy:

  • a) Personal data

    Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "person concerned"). 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 one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

  • b) Person concerned

    Person concerned is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

  • c) Processing

    Processing is any operation or series of operations carried out with or without the help of automated processes in connection with personal data such as the collection, recording, organisation, arranging, storage, adaptation or modification, retrieval, querying, use, disclosure by transmission, distribution or other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.

  • d) Restriction of processing

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

  • e) Profiling

    Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular, to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or change of location.

  • f) Pseudonymisation

    Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific person concerned without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures that ensure that the personal data cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

  • g) Controller or data controller

    Controller or data processing controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that alone or together with others determines the purposes and means of processing personal data. If the purposes and means of this processing are specified by the Union law or the law of the Member States, provision may be made for the controller or for the specific criteria for his or her designation in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States.

  • h) Processor

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

  • i) Recipient

    The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to which personal data are disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities that may receive personal data as part of a specific investigation mandate under Union law or the law of the Member States are not considered recipients.

  • j) Third party

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

  • k) Consent

    Consent is any expression of will voluntarily given by the person concerned in an informed and unequivocal manner, in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative act by which the person concerned signifies his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

2. Name and address of the controller

Responsible within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the member states of the European Union and other regulations of a data protection nature:
TFS global hanger management GmbH
Kruppstraße 1
49835 Wietmarschen-Lohne [Germany]

3. Name and address of the data protection officer

The appointment of a data protection officer is not necessary for our company size.

4. Collection of general data and information

The website of TFS global hanger management GmbH collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a person concerned or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files on the server. The following can be recorded: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of 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 that serves to avert risks in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, TFS global hanger management GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required in order to (1) deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by TFS global hanger management GmbH both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately 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 person concerned.

5. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The data controller processes and stores the personal data relating to person concerned only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European directive and regulatory authority or by any other law or regulation to which the controller is subject.

If the purpose of storage is not applicable or if a storage period stipulated by the European directives and regulations or any other competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.

6. Rights of the person concerned

  • a) Right to confirmation

    Any person concerned has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data relating to him are being processed. If a person concerned wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

  • b) Right to information

    Any person concerned affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority to obtain at any time, and free of charge, the information about the personal data stored about him and a copy of this information from the controller for the processing. Furthermore, the European directive and regulatory authority has granted the person concerned access to the following information:

    • The processing purposes
    • The categories of personal data that are processed
    • The recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular to recipients in third countries or to international organisations

    • The existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, in accordance with Article 22 Paragraph 1 and 4 GDPR and - at least in these cases - meaningful information about the logic involved as well as the scope and intended effects of such processing for the person concerned

    The person concerned also has the right to information as to whether personal data has been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the person concerned also has the right to receive information about the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer.

    If a person concerned wishes to exercise this right to information, he or she may at any time contact a member of the staff of the controller.

  • c) Right to rectification

    Any person concerned affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority to request the immediate correction of incorrect personal data concerning him or her. Furthermore, the person concerned has the right, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to request the completion of incomplete personal data - also by means of a supplementary statement.

    If a person concerned wishes to exercise this right of correction, they can contact an employee of the controller at any time.

  • d) Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)

    Any person concerned affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority to demand from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data relating to him/her, where one of the following reasons applies and provided that the processing is not necessary:

    • The personal data have been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
    • The person concerned withdraws his or her consent on which the processing was based in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR or Art. 9(2)(a) GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
    • The person concerned lodges an objection to the processing in accordance with Art. 21(1) GDPR and there is no overriding legitimate reason for the processing, or the person concerned lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21(2) GDPR.
    • The personal data was processed illegally.
    • The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the member states to which the controller is subject.
    • The personal data were collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Art. 8 (1) GDPR.

    If one of the reasons mentioned above applies and a person concerned wishes to have personal data stored by TFS global hanger management GmbH deleted, he or she can contact an employee of the controller at any time. The employee of TFS global hanger management GmbH will arrange for the request for deletion to be complied with immediately.

    If TFS global hanger management GmbH's personal data has been made public and our company, as the data controller, is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 (1) GDPR, TFS global hanger management GmbH takes appropriate measures, also of a technical nature, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data that the person concerned has asked these other data controllers for data processing to delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The employee of TFS global hanger management GmbH will make the necessary arrangements in individual cases.

  • e) Right to restriction of processing

    Any person concerned affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority to request the controller to restrict processing if one of the following conditions is met:

    • The person concerned disputes the accuracy of the personal data for a period of time that enables the controller to check the accuracy of the personal data.
    • The processing is unlawful, the person concerned refuses to delete the personal data and instead requests that the use of the personal data be restricted.
    • The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the person concerned needs them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
    • The person concerned has objected to processing in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the person concerned.

    If one of the above conditions is met and a person concerned wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by TFS global hanger management GmbH, he or she can contact an employee of the controller at any time. The employee of TFS global hanger management GmbH will arrange for the restriction of processing.

  • f) Right to data portability

    Any person concerned affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulatory authority, to receive the personal data concerning him/her, which was provided to a controller by the person concerned, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. He/she also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that the processing is based on consent in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR or Art. 9(2)(a) GDPR or on a contract in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR and the processing is carried out using automated processes, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

    Furthermore, when exercising their right to data portability in accordance with Art. 20 (1) GDPR, the person concerned has the right to have the personal data transferred directly from one controller to another, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

    In order to assert the right to data portability, the person concerned can contact an employee of TFS global hanger management GmbH at any time.

  • g) Right to object

    Any person concerned affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority, to object at any time, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her that is carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

    In the event of an objection, TFS global hanger management GmbH will no longer process the personal data, unless we can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

    If TFS global hanger management GmbH processes personal data for the purpose of direct advertising, the person concerned has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected to such direct advertising. If the person concerned lodges an objection to TFS global hanger management GmbH's processing for direct marketing purposes, TFS global hanger management GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

    In addition, the person concerned has the right to object, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by TFS global hanger management GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 (1) GDPR, to object, unless such processing is necessary to fulfill a task in the public interest.

    To exercise the right to object, the person concerned can contact any employee of TFS global hanger management GmbH or another employee directly. The person concerned is also free to exercise his or her right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.

  • h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

    Any person concerned affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - which has a legal effect on them or significantly affects him or her in a similar way, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the person concerned and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and this legislation takes appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the person concerned or (3) with the express consent of the person concerned.

    If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between the person concerned and the controller, or (2) it is made with the express consent of the person concerned, TFS global hanger management GmbH takes appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as to protect the legitimate interests of the person concerned, which includes at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the controller, to present their point of view and to challenge the decision.

    If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may contact an employee of the controller at any time.

  • i) Right to withdraw consent under data protection law

    Any person concerned affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority to revoke his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
    If the person concerned wishes to exercise his or her right to withdraw consent, they can contact an employee of the controller at any time.

  • j) Origin of the data

    If the personal data is not collected from the person concerned, you have a right to information about all available information about the origin of the data.

  • k) Right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority

    According to Art. 77 GDPR, you can complain to a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your personal data is unlawful.
    Your competent authority is:

    The State Commissioner for Data Protection Lower Saxony
    Prinzenstraße 5
    30159 Hannover
    Telephone: +49 (0) 511 120-4500
    Fax: +49 (0) 511 120-4599
    Email: poststelle@lfd.niedersachsen.de

7. Data protection for applications and in the application process

The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Processing can also be done electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends the relevant application documents to the controller for processing electronically, for example by email or via a web form on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the data controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after the notification of the rejection decision, provided that there are no other legitimate interests of the data controller contrary to deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, an obligation to provide evidence in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

8. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company 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 person concerned is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or return service, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company was injured and his name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh them. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it is considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person controller (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

9. Legitimate interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is in carrying out our business activities for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.

10. Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the period has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required to fulfil or initiate a contract.

11. Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the person concerned to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the data

We will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information about the contracting party). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that a person concerned provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data, if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would result in the contract not being concluded with the person concerned. Before the person concerned provides personal data, he or she must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of not providing the personal data.

12. Existence of automated decision making

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