We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of the following publisher of this website: Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography. It is possible to use the Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography website without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of special services offered by our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. In addition, this data protection declaration informs affected persons about the rights to which they are entitled.
Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography, as the person responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. However, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as by telephone.
The data protection declaration of Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography is based on the terms used by the European guidelines and ordinances when the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) was issued. Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
1) Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as 'data subject'). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
2) Person concerned
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing is any operation or set of operations, performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
4) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or change of location.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
7) Controller or data controller
Controller or data controller shall mean the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union law or by the law of the Member States, provision may be made for the controller or for the specific criteria for his or her designation in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States.
8) Contract processors
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation, in accordance with Union or national law, shall not be considered as recipients.
10) Third parties
Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.
Consent shall mean any freely given specific and informed expression of the data subject's will in an informed and unequivocal manner, in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
2. the name and address of the controller
The person responsible within the meaning of the Basic Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the member states of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is the:
Publisher: Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography
Address: Holbeinweg 1172519 VeringenstadtGermany
Phone: +49 7577 925101
In this way the following data can be transmitted:
Frequency of page views
Entered search terms
Use of website functions
The user data collected in this way is pseudonymised by technical precautions. It is therefore no longer possible to assign the data to the calling user. The data is not stored together with other personal data of the users.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO, provided the user has given his consent to this.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.
4. collection of general data and information
The website of Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography collects a number of general data and information with every call of the website by a person concerned or an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information which serve to prevent danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. This information is rather required in order to (1) deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) optimize the contents of our website as well as the advertising for it, (3) to ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website as well as (4) to provide law enforcement agencies with the necessary information for prosecution in case of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore statistically evaluated by Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data in the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.
You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, to improve our online offer, we store (without personal reference) your access data to this website. These access data include, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. The anonymisation of the data does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.
5. SSL encryption
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
6. subscription to our newsletter
On the Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company's newsletter. Which personal data is transmitted to the person responsible for processing when ordering the newsletter can be seen from the input mask used for this purpose.
Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography regularly informs its customers and business partners about company offers in the form of a newsletter. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the person concerned if (1) the person concerned has a valid email address and (2) the person concerned registers for the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered for the first time by a person concerned for the purpose of receiving the newsletter using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address has authorized the receipt of the newsletter as a data subject.
When registering for the newsletter, we also save the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of a data subject's e-mail address at a later date and therefore serves to provide legal protection for the data controller.
The personal data collected during registration for the newsletter will be used exclusively for sending our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for registration, as might be the case if there are changes to the newsletter offer or if technical conditions change. The personal data collected within the scope of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the person concerned has given us for the newsletter service, can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking the consent, a corresponding link is included in every newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the data controller or to inform the data controller in another way.
Part of the content of our newsletter may contain promotional material.
7. newsletter tracking
The newsletter of Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography contains so-called counting pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in such e-mails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Using the embedded pixel-code, Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography can identify whether and when an e-mail was opened by an affected person and which links in the e-mail were called up by the affected person.
Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimise the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled to revoke the separate declaration of consent submitted in this regard via the double opt-in procedure at any time. After revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the data controller. Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography automatically interprets a cancellation of receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
8. registration on our website
The data subject shall have the possibility to register on the Internet site of the controller by providing personal data. The personal data transmitted to the data controller is specified in the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored solely for internal use by the data controller and for his own purposes. The data controller may arrange for the transfer to one or more processors, such as a parcel service provider, who shall also use the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to the controller.
By registering on the Internet site of the data controller, the IP address assigned to the data subject by the Internet service provider (ISP), the date and time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data is done against the background that only in this way can the misuse of our services be prevented and, if necessary, these data make it possible to clarify criminal offences that have been committed. To this extent, the storage of this data is necessary to protect the person responsible for processing. As a matter of principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties, unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the passing on of the data serves criminal prosecution.
The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary provision of personal data, enables the controller to offer the data subject content or services which, by their very nature, can only be provided to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the data controller.
The controller shall provide any data subject with information on what personal data relating to the data subject are stored at any time on request. Furthermore, the data controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or notification of the data subject, unless otherwise required by law. The entire staff of the data controller is available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.
9. possibility of contact via the website
Due to legal requirements, the Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography website contains information that enables rapid electronic contact with our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the data controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted voluntarily by a data subject to the controller are stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. Such personal data shall not be disclosed to third parties.
10. comment function in the blog on the website
Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography offers users the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog located on the website of the data controller. A blog is a portal, usually publicly accessible, on an internet page, where one or more persons, called bloggers or web-bloggers, can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented by third parties.
If a data subject leaves a comment in the blog published on this website, information on the time of the comment and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject will be stored and published in addition to the comments left by the data subject. Furthermore, the IP address assigned to the person concerned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) is also logged. This storage of the IP address is done for security reasons and in case the person concerned violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal content by submitting a comment. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the person responsible for processing, so that he/she can be exculpated if necessary in the event of an infringement of the law. The personal data collected will not be passed on to third parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the legal defence of the person responsible for processing.
11. subscription to comments in the blog on the website
The comments made in the Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography blog can be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, it is possible for a commentator to subscribe to the comments following his or her comment on a particular blog entry.
If a data subject opts for the option to subscribe to comments, the data controller sends an automatic confirmation e-mail to check, through a double opt-in procedure, whether the owner of the e-mail address provided has indeed chosen this option. The option to subscribe to comments can be cancelled at any time.
12. routine deletion and blocking of personal data
The controller shall process and store personal data relating to the data subject only for the time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or by any other law or regulation to which the controller is subject.
If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or any other competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.
13. rights of the data subject
1) Right to confirmation
Every data subject has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data relating to him are being processed.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.
4) Right of cancellation (right to be forgotten)
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data relating to him/her, where one of the following reasons applies and provided that the processing is not necessary:
The personal data has been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which it is no longer necessary.
The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the DPA or Article 9(2)(a) of the DPA and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
The data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the Block Exemption Regulation and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for processing, or the data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the Block Exemption Regulation.
The personal data were processed unlawfully.
The deletion of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.

If one of the above reasons applies and a data subject wishes to have personal data stored by Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography deleted, he or she can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. If the personal data has been made public by Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography and our company is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with article 17 paragraph 1 DS-GVO, Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, will take appropriate measures, including technical measures, to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data that the data subject has requested that these other data controllers delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The employee of Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography will take the necessary steps in individual cases.

The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period of time that allows the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to have the personal data deleted and instead requests that the use of the personal data be restricted.
The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them for the purpose of exercising or defending legal claims.
The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DPA and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.
If one of the above-mentioned conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography, he/she can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography will arrange for the processing to be restricted.
6) Right to data transferability
Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to receive the personal data concerning him/her which have been provided by the data subject to a controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. He/she also has the right to have this data communicated to another controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data has been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) DPA or Art. 9(2)(a) DPA or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6(1)(b) DPA and that the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures, 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. Furthermore, when exercising their right to data transferability in accordance with Art. 20 Paragraph 1 FDPIC, the data subject has the right to obtain that personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. In the event of an objection, Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography will no longer process the personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If Stefan Schubert Camera-Obscura.Photography processes personal data in order to carry out direct advertising, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising.

8) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling
Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, as granted by the European Directives and Regulations, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar way, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the controller is subject and that such legislation provides for adequate safeguards of the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is taken with the explicit consent of the data subject.

9) Right to revoke a data protection consent

15. method of payment
1) Paypal: The data controller has integrated components of PayPal on this website. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed through so-called PayPal accounts, which are virtual private or business accounts. In addition, PayPal offers the possibility to process virtual payments via credit cards if a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is managed via an email address, which is why there is no classic account number. PayPal makes it possible to trigger online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also assumes trustee functions and offers buyer protection services.
The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. & Cie S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.
If the person concerned selects "PayPal" as a payment option in our online shop during the ordering process, data of the person concerned is automatically transmitted to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, the person concerned agrees to the transmission of personal data required for the payment process.
The personal data transmitted to PayPal is usually first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data necessary to process payments. For the processing of the purchase contract, such personal data are also necessary in connection with the respective order.
The transmission of data is intended for payment processing and fraud prevention. The data controller will transmit personal data to PayPal in particular if there is a legitimate interest in the transmission. The personal data exchanged between PayPal and the data controller may be transmitted by PayPal to credit reference agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to check identity and creditworthiness.
PayPal may share personal information with affiliates and service providers or subcontractors as necessary to fulfill contractual obligations or to process the data on behalf of PayPal.
The person concerned has the possibility to revoke his or her consent to PayPal to handle personal data at any time. Revocation does not affect personal data that must be processed, used or transmitted for the (contractual) handling of payments.
2) DIRECTebanking: The data controller has integrated components of DIRECTebanking on this website. DIRECTebanking is a payment service that enables cashless payment for products and services on the Internet. DIRECTebanking represents a technical procedure by which the online merchant immediately receives a payment confirmation. This enables a merchant to deliver goods, services or downloads to the customer immediately after ordering.
The operating company of Sofortüberweisung is SOFORT GmbH, Fußbergstraße 1, 82131 Gauting, Germany.
If the person concerned selects "immediate bank transfer" as payment option during the ordering process in our online shop, data of the person concerned will be automatically transferred to "immediate bank transfer". By selecting this payment option, the person concerned consents to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing.
During the purchase transaction via Sofortüberweisung, the buyer transmits the PIN and the TAN to Sofort GmbH. Sofortüberweisung then executes a transfer to the online merchant after technical verification of the account balance and retrieval of further data to check the account coverage. The execution of the financial transaction is then automatically communicated to the online merchant.
The personal data exchanged with Sofortüberweisung are first name, surname, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data necessary for the payment processing. The purpose of the transfer of data is to process payments and prevent fraud. The data controller will transmit other personal data by immediate transfer even if there is a legitimate interest in the transmission. The personal data exchanged between DIRECTebanking and the controller may be transmitted by DIRECTebanking to credit reference agencies. The purpose of this transfer is to check identity and creditworthiness.
Sofortüberweisung may pass on the personal data to affiliated companies and service providers or subcontractors if this is necessary to fulfil the contractual obligations or if the data are to be processed by order.
The person concerned has the possibility to revoke his or her consent to the handling of personal data at any time compared to immediate transfer. Revocation does not affect personal data that must be processed, used or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.
The applicable data protection regulations of Sofortüberweisung can be found at www.sofort.com/ger-DE/datenschutzerklaerung-sofort-gmbh/.
16. google AdWords
Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an advertisement placed by Google, Google Adwords will set a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad served by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not personally identifiable. If the user visits certain pages on our site and the cookie hasn't expired, we and Google can tell that the user clicked the ad and was redirected to that page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. As a result, cookies cannot be tracked across the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected through the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for advertisers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.

17. google remarketing
This website uses the remarketing feature of Google Inc. to deliver interest-based ads to website visitors within the Google advertising network. A so-called "cookie" is stored in the visitor's browser, which makes it possible to recognize the visitor when he or she visits websites that belong to the Google advertising network. On these pages the visitor may be presented with advertisements relating to content that the visitor has previously viewed on websites that use Google's remarketing function.
18. legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for 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 necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company was injured and his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
19. legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
20. the period for which the personal data are stored
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
21. legal or contractual provisions making the personal data available; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the data
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be concluded. Before the person concerned makes personal data available, he or she must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.
22nd Amendment of the data protection provision
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always meets the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration then applies to your renewed visit.
23. existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we avoid automatic decision making or profiling.
