Privacy policy and consent to data use

The protection and legally compliant collection, processing and use of your personal data is important to us. Personal data enjoys special protection and i only collected by us to the extent technically necessary. When processing your personal data, we strictly observe the legal data protection regulations of the German Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) as well as this data protection declaration and would like to inform you below about our data collection and data use.

The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. Pseudonymised usage data is not merged with the data of the bearer of the pseudonym. A creation of pseudonymous usage profiles does not take place. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

By agreeing to the following privacy policy, you consent to the collection, processing and use of your personal data in accordance with the data protection laws and the following provisions.

As the controller, the ICEBREAKER Werbeagentur GmbH & Co KG has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may be subject to security vulnerabilities and that complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Use of the website | Server log files

During the purely informative use of the website, the hosting provider of our site automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This includes

IP address

Date and time of the request

Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)

Content of the request (concrete page)

Access Status/HTTP Status Code

Data volume transferred in each case

Website from which the request comes

Browser

Operating system and its interface

Language and version of the browser software.

This data is evaluated and subsequently discarded exclusively to ensure trouble-free operation of the site with regard to stability and security and to improve our offer. The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p.1 lit. f DSGVO. The data is also stored in the log files of our system. Not affected by this are the IP addresses of the user or other data that enable the data to be assigned to a user. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.

We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use.

However, the data is fundamentally deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

For server hosting and backup of our data we use servers of Host Europe GmbH, Hansestr. 111, 51149 Cologne, Germany.

Use of further services, functions and offers of our website

In addition to the purely informative use of our website, we offer various services, offers and functions that you can use if you are interested. For this purpose, you will usually have to provide further personal data which we use to provide the respective service and to which the aforementioned data processing principles apply. The services/offers and/or functions are described in more detail below.

Contact form

Our website contains a contact form that can be used for electronic contact. If a user takes advantage of this option, the data entered in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions and offers.

For the processing of the data, your consent is obtained during the submission process and reference is made to this privacy policy.

Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail addresses provided. In this case, the user’s personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.

In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the enquiry. The processing of the personal data from the input mask serves us solely to process the contact. In the case of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data. The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

Data protection in applications and the application process

The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of managing the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out by electronic means. This is in particular the case when an applicant submits relevant application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form available on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller conflict with such deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

Further links | Social-Media

When you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the social network or other website operators. Only when you click on the link and thereby reach our page of the corresponding social network or other websites does the provider receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. On this online offer, the respective own data protection provisions then apply.

Legal basis of the processing

Article 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in 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 data subject 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 consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation through which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO.

Rights of the data subject

If personal data about you is processed, you have the following rights in relation to the personal data relating to you.

a) Right to confirmation, 15 GDPR:

Every data subject shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

b) Right of access, Art. 15 GDPR:

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to obtain from the controller, at any time and free of charge, information about the personal data stored about him or her and a copy of that information. Furthermore, the European Directive and Regulation has granted the data subject 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 in the case of recipients in third countries or international organisations

if possible, the planned duration for which the personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this duration

the existence of a right to obtain the rectification or erasure of personal data concerning them or to obtain the restriction of processing by the controller or a right to object to such processing

the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority

if the personal data are not collected from the data subject: All available information on the origin of the data

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

c) Right of rectification, Art. 16 GDPR:

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European Directive and the Regulation to obtain the rectification without delay of inaccurate personal data relating to him or her. Furthermore, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration, taking into account the purposes of the processing.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

d) Right to erasure (right to be forgotten), 17 GDPR:

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, to obtain from the controller the erasure without delay of personal data concerning him or her, where one of the following grounds applies and insofar as the processing is not necessary:

The personal data were collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer necessary.

The data subject revokes the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.

The personal data have been processed unlawfully.

The deletion of the personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.

The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8(1) DS-GVO.

If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to arrange for the deletion of personal data stored by the ICEBREAKER Werbeagentur GmbH & Co. KG, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the AdSuits GmbH & Co. will arrange for the deletion request to be complied with immediately.

If the personal data has been made public by the ICEBREAKER Werbeagentur GmbH & Co. KG, and our company as the controller is obliged to delete the personal data pursuant to Article 17 (1) of the Data Protection Regulation, the ICEBREAKER Werbeagentur GmbH & Co. KG shall implement appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the costs of implementation, in order to inform other data controllers which process the published personal data that the data subject has requested from those other data controllers the erasure of all links to the personal data or to copies or replications of the personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The employee of the ICEBREAKER Werbeagentur GmbH & Co KG will arrange the necessary in individual cases.

e) Right to restriction of processing, Art. 18 GDPR:

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing where one of the following conditions is met:

The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.

The processing is unlawful, the data subject objects to the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of the use of the personal data.

The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

The data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by the ICEBREAKER Werbeagentur GmbH & Co. KG, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the ICEBREAKER Werbeagentur GmbH & Co KG will arrange the restriction of the processing.

f) Right to data portability, 20 GDPR:

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which have been provided by the data subject to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. The data subject shall also have the right to transmit such data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR and the processing is carried out by automated means, 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.

In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact any employee of the ICEBREAKER Werbeagentur GmbH & Co KG.

g) Right to object, 21 GDPR:

Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The ICEBREAKER Werbeagentur GmbH & Co KG shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact any employee of the AdSuits GmbH Co KG or another employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his/her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC. 

h) Right to information, Art. 19 GDPR:

If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the controller, the controller is obliged to communicate this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing to all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed of these recipients by the controller.

i) Right to revoke consent under data protection law

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw consent, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

 j) Right to complain to a supervisory authority, Art. 77 GDPR:

You also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data. You can address your complaint to the supervisory authority in the Member State of your residence, workplace or the place of the alleged infringement. The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged will inform you, as the complainant, of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
