Data Protection Statement

We take the task of protecting your personal data very seriously. Naturally, we always handle your personal data in accordance with the statutory data protection provisions. We have appointed an expert and reliable external data protection officer. The external data protection officer is provided by UIMC Dr. Voßbein GmbH & Co. KG (https://datenschutz.uimc.de). In the following, we will inform you on how your personal data are processed.

Collection and Processing of Personal Data

The Controller, under Art. 4 (7) of the GDPR, is Babtec Informationssysteme GmbH, Clausenstraße 21, 42285 Wuppertal, Germany (see our Imprint).

If you make contact with us, the data that you share with us (your address, e-mail address, if required your name and telephone number) will be saved by us in order to answer your queries. In the event that you have any questions, we offer you the option of contacting us via a form that is provided on our Internet presence. Here, certain data have been labeled “mandatory.” These data are necessary to allocate and answer the request. Any other data can be provided voluntarily. Data for the purpose of contacting us is processed in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a of the GDPR, based on your voluntary consent. We will erase the data that is procured in this context once it is no longer necessary to retain this data, or we will restrict its processing if there are no legal obligations to save this data.

If we need to mandate another service provider to fulfill individual functions of our offer and are obliged to forward your personal data to third parties at this juncture, we will provide you with detailed information on the relevant processes. Here, we will also state the set criteria for the duration that the data will be stored by the mandated third party.

If you wish to conclude a contract with us, you must state the personal data that we require to process your order. This is necessary in order to conclude the contract. We will process the data that you have provided in order to execute your order. To this end, we may forward your payment data to our affiliated bank. Art. 6 (1) sentence 1(b) of the GDPR forms the legal basis for this. This also applies for measures which are required in order to execute pre-contractual measures.

If it is necessary to process personal data in order to fulfill a legal obligation that our company is subject to, then this shall occur within the scope of Art. 6 (1) sentence 1(c) of the GDPR.

If processing is necessary for the purposes of protecting our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party and if your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not override these legitimate interests, then Art. 6 (1) sentence 1(f) of the GDPR shall form the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interests of our company are, in principle, in rendering the services due and/or constant optimization of our services and presentations.

Due to trade and fiscal provisions, we are obligated to store your address, payment and order data in accordance with the statutory regulations. However, we will place limitations on processing after two years have lapsed. This means that your data will only be used in order to comply with legal obligations.

BabtecQube

A Qube user account will be created upon first registration for BabtecQube. A name and e-mail address are required information for this. Further information can be optionally added to the user profile, or edited there, by the user themselves. Alternatively, the user can also register via an existing Microsoft Azure account and will be transferred to Microsoft for authentication.

If you use BabtecQube, we will save the personal data that we require in order to fulfill the order, including information on the payment method, until you permanently delete your access account. Furthermore, we will save the data that you have voluntarily provided for the period during which you use the portal, unless you erase this data before that point. Art. 6 (1) sentence 1(f) of the GDPR forms the legal basis for this.

If you use BabtecQube, your data may be rendered accessible to other participants in BabtecQube. Users who are not logged in will not receive any information on you. Personal data are visible for registered users within BabtecQube under the following conditions. If the user has been assigned a company account, the administrator of the company account can view the personal data that have been entered upon registration or which have subsequently been added voluntarily. Other users assigned to the company account can also view these data. Outside the company account, the personal data cannot, in principle, be viewed unless the user actively changes their privacy settings and enables the data to be viewed. When exchanging messages on behalf of a company, the name of the sender is forwarded/displayed.
