Privacy policy

We are pleased that you are visiting our website. The protection and security of your personal information when using our website is very important to us. We would therefore like to inform you at this point which of your personal data we collect when you visit our website and for what purposes it is used. Personal data is individual information about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person (data subject), e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses, user behaviour. This is data with which we can identify you. In addition, you will also find information on data processing processes outside of this website (e.g. video conferences or newsletters).

Person responsible for data processing

Responsible for the processing of personal data within the meaning of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) CHRONEXT AGFeldpark 96300 ZugCH+41 41 588 06 84info@chronext.com

General

This privacy statement complies with the legal requirements for transparency in the processing of personal data. This is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, age, address, telephone number, date of birth, email address, IP address or user behaviour when visiting a website. Information for which we cannot (or can only with disproportionate effort) establish a link to your person, e.g. through anonymisation, is not personal data. The processing of personal data (e.g. collection, retrieval, use, storage or transmission) always requires a legal basis and a defined purpose. Stored personal data are deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been achieved and there are no legitimate grounds for further retention of the data. We will inform you in the individual processing operations about the specific storage periods or criteria for storage. Irrespective of this, we store your personal data in individual cases for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and if there are statutory retention obligations.

Information according to Art. 13 DS-GVO

This information is intended for customers, interested parties, suppliers and employees. Your personal data will be processed by us for the following purposes:

  • To fulfil our contractual obligations to you (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO).
  • To carry out pre-contractual obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO).
  • To respond to enquiries (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO).
  • If you have given us your consent to process your personal data for certain purposes (for example, to receive our newsletter), the data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).
  • To fulfil legal obligations to which our company is subject (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO).
  • To the extent necessary, we also process your data to protect our legitimate interests, in particular to assert legal claims and defend ourselves in legal disputes or to ensure IT security, to consult and exchange data with credit agencies to determine creditworthiness and default risks, for direct advertising and market research insofar as you have not objected to the use of your data for this purpose, for measures to manage business and further develop services and products, for measures to optimise products and sales, for measures to manage risk, to prevent or investigate criminal offences (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO).

Categories of recipients of personal data

Within our company, only those employees have access to the data who absolutely need it to perform their tasks (need-to-know principle). Individual processes and services are carried out by carefully selected service providers who are based within the EEA and who comply with data protection regulations. If service providers commissioned by us receive access to personal data when performing your services, order processing agreements have been concluded with them in accordance with Art. 28 (3) DSGVO.

Duration of data storage

The data processed by us is stored for the duration of the existence and processing of the contractual relationship and in compliance with statutory retention periods. These are, in particular, retention obligations under commercial and tax law in accordance with the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO). The regular retention and documentation periods are up to ten years. If there is no contractual relationship, we only process the data for as long as the specific purpose requires.

Your data subject rights

As a data subject, you have the following rights with regard to the personal data concerning you:

  • Right to information about the data we process about you.
  • Right to rectification or deletion if incorrect, out of date or unlawfully collected by us.
  • Right to restriction of processing if complete deletion is not possible, e.g. because we have to comply with statutory retention obligations.
  • Right to object to processing where the data processing is based on a balance of interests (the so-called legitimate interest), as described above under "Purpose of the processing". This is the case if the processing is not necessary, in particular, for the performance of a contract with you. When exercising your right to object, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your data as we have done. Of course, you can also object to the processing of your personal data for advertising purposes at any time. Please send your objection to our address given in the imprint or write us an e-mail to the address given in the imprint.
  • Right of revocation if you have given us consent to process your data. You can assert your right of revocation against our company at any time without giving reasons. To do so, please contact us at the address given in the imprint.
  • In addition, you have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data by our company. If you have any questions regarding data protection, please contact us by e-mail at the address given in the imprint.

With the help of cookies, we can, among other things, make our website more user-friendly and effective for you, for example by tracking your use of our website and determining your preferred settings (e.g. country and language settings). If third parties process information via cookies, they collect the information directly via your browser. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device. They cannot execute programs or contain viruses. We provide information about the respective services for which we use cookies in the individual processing operations.

Your rights

Under the conditions of the statutory provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you have the following rights as a data subject: Information pursuant to Art. 15 DSGVO on the data stored about you in the form of meaningful information on the details of the processing as well as a copy of your data; Correction according to Art. 16 DSGVO of incorrect or incomplete data stored by us; Deletion pursuant to Art. 17 DSGVO of the data stored by us, insofar as the processing is not necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for the fulfilment of a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims; Restriction of processing pursuant to Art. 18 DSGVO, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed, the processing is unlawful, we no longer need the data and you object to their deletion because you need them for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO. Data portability pursuant to Art. 20 DSGVO, insofar as you have provided us with personal data within the scope of consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or on the basis of a contract pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and these have been processed by us with the aid of automated procedures. You will receive your data in a structured, common and machine-readable format or we will transfer the data directly to another responsible party, insofar as this is technically feasible. Objection according to Art. 21 DSGVO against the processing of your personal data, insofar as this is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. e, f DSGVO and there are reasons for this which arise from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising. The right to object does not exist if overriding compelling legitimate grounds for the processing can be demonstrated or the processing is carried out for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. Where the right to object does not exist for individual processing operations, this is indicated there. Revocation pursuant to Art. 7 (3) DSGVO of your consent with effect for the future.

Data processing in detail

In the following, we inform you about the individual processing operations, the scope and purpose of the data processing, the legal basis, the obligation to provide your data and the respective storage period. An automated decision in individual cases, including profiling, does not take place.

Provision of the website

When you call up and use our website, we collect the personal data that your browser automatically transmits to our server. The following information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file:

  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • Date and time of access
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file

Our website is not hosted by ourselves, but by a service provider who processes the aforementioned data on our behalf in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO for the purpose of providing the website. The hoster is used for the purpose of contract fulfilment vis-à-vis our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO) and in the interest of a secure, fast and efficient provision of our online offer by a professional provider (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). We use the following hoster: FRONTASTIC GmbH Eichenaue 14 48157 Münster Contact form

Nature and scope of the processing

When you send us enquiries (e.g. via contact form, e-mail or telephone), we store all data resulting from this (e.g. name, e-mail address, subject of the enquiry, etc.). We need this data to process your enquiry and to be able to answer follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

Purpose and legal basis

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. Otherwise, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO) if you have given it beforehand.

Storage period

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your enquiry). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

Zenloop

We use services and functions of zenloop on this website, which are offered by zenloop GmbH, Habersaathstraße 58, 10115 Berlin, Germany. We use zenloop, a business-to-business software-as-a-service platform, for customer surveys and product reviews. We share your email address with the provider so they can send you an invitation to the survey. When you use the feedback tool, zenloop collects information about your location, device and browser, and the website you came from. zenloop also uses cookies and similar technologies to collect information about users in general. In addition, zenloop stores your survey responses. When using zenloop, we rely on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO as the legal basis for the processing and disclosure of your personal data. You can revoke your consent at any time. You can find more information on data processing in zenloop's privacy policy at https://www.zenloop.com/de/legal/privacy.

The contract guarantees that zenloop will only process the data collected through the analysis according to our instructions and will comply with the regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO). Contact form for applicants

Nature and scope of the processing

You have the opportunity to apply to us on our website (e.g. by e-mail, post or via the online application form).

Purpose and legal basis

We process the personal data of applicants in accordance with the legal requirements for the purpose of processing the application procedure and carrying out pre-contractual measures within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. DSGVO and § 26 BDSG according to German law (initiation of an employment relationship) and - if you have given your consent - Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. The consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons who are involved in processing your application. If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 BDSG and Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.

Storage period

Your data will be stored for a period of 6 months beyond the end of the application process. This is usually done to fulfil legal obligations or to defend against any claims arising from legal regulations. We are then obliged to delete or anonymise your data. In this case, the data is only available to us as so-called metadata without direct personal reference for statistical evaluations (for example, proportion of women or men in applications, number of applications per period, etc.). If it is evident that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will only be deleted when the purpose for continued storage no longer applies.

Admission to the applicant pool

As part of the application process, we offer applicants the opportunity to be included in our "talent pool" for a period of 12 months on the basis of consent within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a. DS-GVO to be included. The application documents in the talent pool will be processed solely in the context of future job advertisements and the employee search and will be destroyed at the latest after the deadline. Applicants are informed that their consent to be included in the talent pool is voluntary, has no influence on the current application process and that they can revoke this consent at any time for the future. If you receive an offer of employment with us as part of the application process and accept it, we store the personal data collected as part of the application process for at least the duration of the employment relationship.

Newsletter

We offer you our newsletter on this website. If you would like to subscribe to it, we need your e-mail address and other data proving that it is your e-mail address and that you agree to receive the newsletter. No other personal data is collected unless you provide it voluntarily (e.g. name, telephone number, place of residence, etc.). When processing the data you provide when registering for the newsletter, we rely exclusively on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO as the legal basis. You can revoke your consent to the processing and storage of your personal data at any time (e.g. via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter) for the future. We store your personal data that you have provided for the purpose of receiving the newsletter until you unsubscribe from the newsletter with us or the dispatch service provider. This does not apply to data that we have stored from you for other purposes. If you unsubscribe from the newsletter mailing list, your email address will be stored in a blacklist by us or the mailing service provider for an indefinite period of time. This is done to prevent future mailings to you. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This is not only in your interest, but also in our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO to fulfil our legal obligations when sending newsletters. You can object to the storage if your personal interests outweigh our legitimate interest.

Emarsys

This website uses Emarsys to send newsletters. The provider is Emarsys eMarketing Systems AG, Stralauer Platz 34, 10243 Berlin. Emarsys is a service that organises and analyses the sending of newsletters. Data that you enter to receive newsletters (e.g. your email address) is stored on Emarsys' servers.

Data analysis by Emarsys

Emarsys offers the possibility to view the performance of our newsletter. We can determine whether a newsletter was opened, which links were clicked on and which further actions were carried out after opening/clicking on the newsletter, e.g. a purchase. This allows us to analyse and evaluate our newsletter campaigns with the help of Emarsys. In addition, Emarsys offers the possibility to better adapt the newsletter to our target groups by dividing the newsletter recipients according to different categories, such as age, gender or place of residence. If you are against analysis by Emarsys, you can unsubscribe from the newsletter by clicking on a link. This link is available in every newsletter you receive.

Legal basis

The processing of the data is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO). This consent can be revoked at any time. The lawfulness of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected. You can find the Emarsys privacy policy here: https://emarsys.com/de/datenschutzrichtlinie/.

Storage period

Data that you provide to us for the purpose of sending the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider. This applies until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this. If you unsubscribe from our newsletter, we may store your email address in a blacklist. In this way, we ensure that we do not send newsletters to people who have unsubscribed. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves your and our interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO) with regard to compliance with the legal requirements for newsletter dispatch. The storage of your data in the blacklist is not limited in time. You have the right to object to the storage of data if your interest outweighs our legitimate interest.

Job processing

To ensure that personal data is processed according to our specifications and in compliance with the GDPR, we have concluded a contract on commissioned processing (GCP) with the provider.

Registration of a customer account

Processing customer and contract data

We collect, process and use your personal data only insofar as they are necessary for the establishment, amendment or fulfilment of a legal relationship. This is done for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. The collected customer data will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.

Data transmission ¬upon conclusion of a contract for online shops, traders and dispatch of goods

We only transmit personal data if this is necessary for the processing of the contract, for example to shipping service providers or the credit institution commissioned with the processing of payments. Any further transmission of data will not take place or will only take place if you have expressly consented to the transmission. The basis for data processing is the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

Credit checks

In the case of a purchase on account or any other method of payment for which we make advance payments, we may carry out a credit assessment (scoring). For this purpose, we transmit your entered data (e.g. name, address, age or bank details) to a credit agency. Based on this data, the probability of a payment default is determined. In the event of an excessive risk of non-payment, we may refuse the payment method in question. Under certain circumstances, we or the payment service provider carry out a credit check. The payment service provider uses the result of the credit check in relation to the statistical probability of non-payment for the purpose of deciding on the provision of the respective payment method. The creditworthiness information may contain probability values (so-called score values). Insofar as score values are included in the result of the credit report, they have their basis in a scientifically recognised mathematical-statistical procedure. The calculation of the score values includes e.g. name, address, age or bank data. The basis for data processing is the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, as well as for the prevention of payment defaults (legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). If you have previously given your consent to data processing, the processing of your data will take place solely on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.

Payment services

We integrate third-party payment services on our website. When you make a purchase from us, your payment data (e.g. name, payment amount, account details, credit card number) are processed by the payment service provider for the purpose of payment processing; the respective contract and data protection provisions of the respective providers apply. The basis for the data processing is the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO as well as in the interest of a smooth, convenient and secure payment process (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). If you have previously given your consent to data processing, the processing of your data will take place solely on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO; the consent can be revoked at any time. The payment processing of the payment methods provided is carried out via the payment service provider Adyen (Adyen N.V., Simon Carmiggeltstraat 6-50, 1011 DJ Amsterdam, Netherlands). To ensure that personal data is processed according to our specifications and in compliance with the GDPR, we have concluded a contract on commissioned processing (GCP) with the provider. For the purpose of fraud prevention and detection, we transmit your IP address to Adyen. All data is transmitted in encrypted form. Adyen collects and stores the data and only shares it with the companies involved in the payment process. In addition, we use SIFT SCIENCE, INC., 525 Market St Fl 6, San Francisco, CA 94105-2714, USA to prevent fraud in our shop. We offer the following payment methods:

Presence on social media platforms

Data processing by social networks

We operate publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The social networks we use in detail can be found below. Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter etc. can generally analyse your user behaviour extensively. By visiting our social media presences, the following data protection-relevant processing operations are triggered: If you are logged into your social media account and visit our profile, the operator of this social medium can track this visit. Independently of this, the operator may also process your data (e.g. IP address) under certain circumstances if you are not logged into your account or you do not have an account at all. The operator summarises this data in user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. These profiles are used to display personalised advertising inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, the personalised advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in. Depending on the platform, further processing operations may be carried out by the operators of the social media portals; we have no influence on this. For details, please refer to the terms of use and data protection provisions of the respective social media portals.

Legal basis

Our social media presences are intended to ensure the most comprehensive presence possible on the Internet within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.

Responsible person and assertion of rights

If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both against us and against the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. Facebook). Despite the joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we have no full influence on the data processing procedures of the portals. Our options are largely determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider.

Storage period

The data collected directly by us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected. We have no influence on the storage period of the data collected by the social networks.

Video conferencing

Data processing

We use online conferencing tools to communicate with our clients. The specific tools we use are listed below. When you communicate with us via video or audio conferencing, your personal data will be collected and processed by us and the provider of the relevant tool. The tools collect the data you provide, including your email address and phone number. They also process the duration of the conference, when you attended the conference, number of participants and other metadata. In addition, the provider of the tool processes all technical data that are necessary for the handling of the conference. This includes, in particular, IP addresses, MAC addresses, device IDs, device type, operating system type and version, client version, camera type, microphone or speakers, and the type of connection. When you share content in this service, it is stored on the providers' servers. This includes cloud recordings, chat messages, voice messages and photos and videos you have shared while using this service. Please note that we do not have full influence on the data processing procedures of the tools used. For further information on data processing by the conference tools, please refer to the data protection declarations of the respective tools used.

Purpose and legal basis
