Data Protection Statement

The operator of these internet pages (hereinafter referred to as “the operator” and “the website”) takes the protection of your personal data very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with Germany’s statutory data protection regulations and this Data Protection Statement.
Use of this website is generally possible without submitting personal data. To the extent that these website pages require personal data (such as your name, address or email address), these are provided by you, wherever possible, on a strictly voluntary basis. This kind of data will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent.
Please note that the data transmission over the internet (e.g. when communicating via e-mail) may be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of data against third-party access is not possible.
This Data Protection Statement (hereinafter referred to as “the Statement”) clarifies the type, scope and purpose of the processing of personal data (hereinafter referred to as “the data”) within this online service and its associated websites, functions and contents as well as external online presences, such as your own social media profiles (hereinafter referred to jointly as “the online service”). As far as the use of certain terms goes, such as “processing” or “controller,” this Statement follows the terminology defined in Art. 4, German Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).


Responsible Party (“Operator”)
Georg Guillemin
Friedbergstrasse 16
14057 Berlin, Germany

Definitive Legal Bases
In accordance with Art. 13, GDPR, you hereby receive information on the legal basis of data processing by the Operator. Whenever no other lawful basis is specified in the Statement, the following shall apply: The lawful bases for obtaining consent are Art. 6, Sec. 1, Letter a and Art. 7, GDPR, while the lawful basis for processing data to deliver the Operator’s services and to perform contractually agreed services as well as to answer queries is Art. 6, Sec. 1, Letter b, GDPR, the lawful basis for meeting our legal obligations is Art. 6, Sec. 1, Letter c, GDPR, while the lawful basis for data processing to protect the Operator’s legitimate interests is Art. 6, Sec. 1, Letter f, GDPR. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Art. 6, Sec. 1, Letter d, GDPR, shall serve as legal basis.

Cooperation with Contract Processors and Third Parties
To the extent that the Operator discloses data to other persons and companies (contract processors or third parties) within the scope of its own processing, transfers such data to them or otherwise grants them access to the data, this shall presuppose that a legal permission is in place (e.g. if a transfer of the data to third parties, such as payment service providers, pursuant to Art. 6, Sec. 1 Letter b, GDPR, is necessary for the performance of the contract), if you have consented to this, if a legal obligation provides for this or on the basis of the Operator’s legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).
If the Operator commissions third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called “order processing contract,” such processing shall be done on the basis of Art. 28, GDPR.

Transfers to Third Countries
If the Operator processes data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this is done in the context of the use of third party services or the disclosure or transfer of data to third parties, this is only done to fulfil the Operator’s (pre)contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, a legal obligation or on the basis of the Operator’s legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, the data will only be processed in a third country if the special requirements of Art. 44, GDPR, are met. This means that processing takes place, for example, on the basis of specific guarantees, such as the officially recognised establishment of a level of data protection equivalent to that of the EU (e.g. for the USA through the “Privacy Shield”) or compliance with officially recognised specific contractual obligations (so-called “standard contractual clauses”).

Rights of Data Subjects
You have the right to request confirmation as to whether the data in question will be processed and to be notified about the data processing and to receive detailed information and a copy of that data in accordance with Art. 15, GDPR.
Pursuant to Art. 16, GDPR, you have the right to request the completion of data concerning you or the correction of incorrect data concerning you.
Pursuant to Art. 17, GDPR, you have the right to demand that the relevant data be deleted immediately or, alternatively, to demand a restriction on the processing of the data pursuant to Art. 18, GDPR.
You have the right to request receipt of the data concerning you which you provided to the Operator in accordance with Art. 20, GDPR, and to demand that it be transferred to other responsible parties.
Pursuant to Art. 77, GDPR, you also have the right to file a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.

Right of Revocation
You have the right to revoke consents granted pursuant to Art. 7, Sec. 3, GDPR, with effect for the future.

Right to Object
You may object to future processing of the data concerning you in accordance with Art. 21, GDPR, at any time.
