Passing on data

Your personal data are not transmitted to third parties for purposes other than those listed.

We will pass on your personal data to third parties only if:

  • you have provided your express consent to do so,
  • passing on the data is required to assert, exercise or defend legal entitlements and there is no reason to believe that you have a prevailing protected interest in not passing on your data,
  • there is an obligation in the law to pass it on or
  • the law permits it and it is necessary to carry out contractual relationships with you.

When data are transmitted outside the European Union, the higher European data protection level generally does not apply. When data are transmitted, it may be the case that there is not currently any adequacy decision from the EU Commission within the meaning of Article 45 (1) or Article 45 (3) of the GDPR. That means that the EU Commission has so far not made a positive determination that the country-specific data protection level corresponds to the data protection level of the European Union based on the GDPR, so we have acquired the suitable guarantees named above.

Possible risks that cannot be entirely ruled out in connection with data transmission include, in particular:

  • your personal data might possibly be processed beyond the actual purposes.
  • In addition, there is a possibility that you may not be able to assert and enforce your data protection rights, such as your right to access, rectification, erasure or data portability. after the fact.
  • There is also a high probability that the data may not be processed correctly and that the protection of personal data does not meet the requirements of the GDPR quantitatively and qualitatively in its entirety.

Instruction on rights of data subjects

Every data subject has the right of access under Article 15 GDPR, the right to rectification under Article 16 GDPR, the right to erasure under Article 17 GDPR, the right to restriction of processing under Article 18 GDPR, the right to object under Article 21 GDPR and the right to data portability under Article 20 GDPR. For the right of access and the right to erasure, the limitations in Sections 34 and 35 of the Federal Data Protection Act [BDSG] apply.

Instruction on the capability of complaining

You also have the right to make a complaint to the competent data protection supervisory authority about our processing of your personal data.

Instruction about revocation if consent is granted

You may revoke consent granted to process your personal data by telling us at any time. That also applies to revocation of statements of consent that were granted to us prior to the data protection regulation coming into effect on May 25, 2018. Please note that the revocation will only be effective in the future. Processing done prior to the revocation is not affected thereby.

Rights if data are processed for direct marketing purposes

Under Article 21 (2) GDPR, you have the right to object to processing your personal data at any time. If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes. Please note that the objection will only be effective in the future. Processing done prior to the objection is not affected thereby.

Notice on the right to object in weighing interests

When we use a weighing of interests as support for processing your personal data, you may file an objection against processing. If you avail yourself of such an objection, we ask that you provide the reasons as to why we should not process your personal data as we described. If you have a justified objection, we check the facts and will either stop processing the data, adjust our processing or explain our reasons that are absolutely worthy of protection to you.

Our web pages may contain links to web pages offered by other providers. We point out that this data protection statement only applies to Brinkhaus GmbH web pages. We have no influence on other providers and do not check whether they comply with current data protection provisions.

Change to the data protection statement

Vimeo

Plugins for the Vimeo video portal from Vimeo, LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA are included on our web site. Any time a page that offers one or more Vimeo video clips is called up, there will be a direct connection set up between your browser and a Vimeo server in the US. At that time, information about your visit and your IP address will be stored there. This information is also transferred to Vimeo and stored there through interactions with the Vimeo plugins (such as clicking on the Start button). The data protection statement for Video and more specific information on the collection and use of your data by Vimeo can be found in Vimeo’s data protection declaration.

If you have a Vimeo user account and do not want Vimeo to collect data through this web site and associate it with the membership data stored at Vimeo, you must log off of your Vimeo account prior to visiting this web site.

In addition, Vimeo calls up the tracker Google Analytics through an iFrame in which the video is called up. This is Vimeo’s own tracking and we have no access to it. You may disable tracking by Google Analytics by using the deactivation tool that Google offers for some Internet browsers. In addition, you may prevent collection of the data created by Google Analytics which is associated with your use of the web site (including your IP address) for Google and prevent processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:
