Data protection is important to us

2. Communication by e-mail/telephone/mail/contact form
2.1 Purposes of the processing/legal basis

 

We treat all personal data that we receive from you by e-mail, telephone, mail or contact form confidentially. We use your data solely for the limited purpose of processing your inquiry. The legal basis for the processing is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest arises from the interest in responding to your inquiries so that customer satisfaction is ensured and promoted.

When you send us personal data by contacting us for purposes of initiating or performing an existing contractual relationship, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR is the legal basis for data processing.

2.2 Recipients/categories of recipient

As a rule, we do not transfer the data to third parties outside GreenCycle Umweltmanangement GmbH. In exceptional cases, we will have a processor process the data on our behalf. Such processors are carefully selected and bound by contract in accordance with Article 28 GDPR.

Where necessary to process your inquiry, we transfer your data to Schwarz Group companies, such as other GreenCycle companies.

2.3 Obligation to provide your data

You are under no statutory or contractual obligation to provide personal data to us. However, if you do not provide us with the data required to process your request, we will not be able to process or respond to it.

2.4 Storage time/criteria for determining storage time

All personal information that you send us in response to inquiries will be deleted or securely anonymized within 90 days of the final response to you. The 90-day retention period is explained by the fact that it may happen from time to time that you contact us again after a reply on the same matter and we must then be able to refer to the previous correspondence. Experience has shown that, as a rule, after 90 days, there are no further queries about our answers. If you assert your rights as a data subject, your personal data will be stored for 3 years after the final reply in order to prove that we have provided you with comprehensive information and that the legal requirements have been met.

We delete or securely anonymize all information we receive from you when you make inquiries no later than 90 days after the final response is sent to you. The information is retained for 90 days in case you contact us again after a receiving a response from us on the same matter and we need to refer to our previous correspondence. Based on experience, we generally do not receive any questions concerning our responses after 90 days. If you assert your rights as a data subject, your personal data will be stored for three years after the final response in order to document the fact that we provided you with comprehensive information and that the legal requirements have been met. Personal data that you send to us as part of initiating or performing a contract will be deleted after no more than 12 years.

For example, we can use your settings to display our website in a language relevant to you. They also mean we can avoid displaying products that may not be available in your region.

Statistics: these methods enable us to tailor the design of our services by producing anonymized statistics about how they are used. For example, we can use them to determine how better to adapt our websites to user habits.

Marketing: these enable us to display relevant advertising content based on an analysis of your usage behavior. Your usage behavior can also be tracked over various websites, browsers or devices via a user ID (unique identifier).

Depending on the purpose, the use of cookies and similar technologies to process usage data involves processing the following types of personal data in particular:

6. Our social media sites

6.1 Processing as the controller

We, GreenCycle Umweltmanagement GmbH and the operators of the social media platforms are partly responsible for the data collection and processing described below. For certain processing activities, we and the platform operators also act as jointly responsible parties in the sense of Art. 26 DSGVO.

We operate the following social media sites:
LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/greencycle-gmbh/
Xing: https://www.xing.com/company/greencycle
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GreenCycle-335551660564807/
YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKctOyvHRESLWquiK1IRFVw

The platform operator as controller

We have only limited influence on the data processing by the operators of the social media platform (e.g. administration of members and shared information). At the points where we can exert influence and parameterize the data processing, we work within the scope of the possibilities available to us to ensure that the operator of the social media platform treats the data in a manner that complies with data protection regulations. In many places, however, we cannot influence the data processing by the operator of the social media platform and do not know exactly which data the operator processes.

The platform operator operates the entire IT infrastructure of the service, maintains its own data protection regulations and maintains its own user relationship with you (if you are a registered user of the social media service). In addition, the operator is solely responsible for all questions regarding the data of your user profile, to which we as a company have no access.

For more information on data processing by the provider of the social media platform and further options for objection, please refer to the provider’s privacy policy:

6.1.2 GreenCycle Umweltmanagement GmbH as the controller
6.1.2.1 Purposes and legal basis of processing

The purpose of data processing by us on our social media sites is to inform customers about services, promotions, competitions, factual topics, company news and the interaction with visitors to the social media sites on these topics, as well as to answer relevant questions, praise or criticism.

We only reserve the right to delete content if this should be necessary. We may share your content on our site if this is a function of the social media platform and communicate with you via the social media platform. Legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. The data processing is carried out in the interest of our public relations and communication. The operator has no influence on the processing of your data by us in the context of customer communication or competitions.

As already mentioned, we take care to design our social media pages as data protection-compliant as possible in those places where the provider of the social media platform gives us the opportunity.

6.1.2.2 Recipients/categories of recipient

The data you enter on our social media pages, such as comments, videos, pictures, likes, public messages, etc., are published by the social media platform and will not be used or processed by us for any other purpose at any time. We only reserve the right to delete illegal content if this should be necessary. This is the case, for example, with infringing or illegal posts, hate comments, salacious comments (explicitly sexual content) or attachments (e.g. pictures or videos), which may violate copyrights, personal rights or criminal laws.

We may share your content on our site if this is a function of the social media platform and communicate via the social media platform. If you send us a request on the social media platform, we may also refer you to other, secure communication channels that guarantee confidentiality, depending on the required answer. You always have the possibility to send us confidential inquiries to our address mentioned under point 1. or in the imprint.

6.1.2.3 Obligation to provide your data

You are neither contractually nor legally obliged to provide us with personal data. We do not collect any personal data from you if you use our pages in social media for purely informational purposes. If you do not wish to provide us with any personal data, you can still visit our pages.

6.1.2.4 Storage period

All personal information that you send us in response to inquiries will be deleted or securely anonymized within 90 days of the final response to you. The 90-day retention period is explained by the fact that it may happen from time to time that you contact us again after a reply on the same matter and we must then be able to refer to the previous correspondence. Experience has shown that, as a rule, after 90 days, there are no further queries about our answers. If you assert your rights as a data subject, your personal data will be stored for 3 years after the final reply in order to prove that we have provided you with comprehensive information and that the legal requirements have been met.

All public posts by you on one of our social media pages remain in the timeline for an unlimited period of time, unless we delete them due to an update of the underlying topic, a violation of law or our guidelines, or you delete the post yourself. With regard to the deletion of your data by the operator himself, we have no possibility to influence this. Therefore, the data protection regulations of the respective operator apply in addition.

6.2 Processing as joint controllers

With the operator of the social media service there is partly a relationship according to Art. 26 para. 1 DSGVO (joint responsibility):

For the web tracking methods used by the operator of the social media platform, the platform operators and we act as jointly responsible parties. The web tracking can also be carried out independently of whether you are logged in or registered with the social media platform. As already mentioned, we unfortunately can hardly influence the web tracking methods of the social media platform. For example, we cannot switch this off.

The legal basis for the webtracking methods is Art. 6 para. lit. f) DSGVO. The interest in optimizing the social media platform and the respective fan page is considered justified in the sense of the aforementioned regulation.

If the statutory requirements are met, you also have a right to rectification (Article 16 GDPR), erasure (Article 17 GDPR) and restriction of processing (Article 18 GDPR) of your personal data.

If the basis of processing is Article 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR, you have a right to object under Article 21 GDPR.

If you have provided the processed data yourself, you have a right to data portability under Article 20 GDPR.

If the data processing is carried out on the basis of consent granted under Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) GDPR, you may revoke that consent at any time with effect for the future without this affecting the lawfulness of the previous processing.

In the above-mentioned cases, or if you have questions or complaints, please write to or e-mail the data protection officer.
