PRIVACY STATEMENT

We are very happy about your interest in our company. Data protection is particularly important for the management of DRS Investment GmbH. It is possible to use the Internet pages of DRS Investment without providing any personal data. However, if a person wishes to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and if there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the person concerned.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person, is always carried out in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to DRS Investment. Through this Privacy Statement, our company wants to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. In addition, affected persons will be informed about the rights to which they are entitled by this privacy policy.

As the company responsible for processing, DRS Investment has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. However, Internet-based data transfers can generally have security vulnerabilities, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

  • f) Pseudonymization

Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific affected person without the use of additional information, provided that this additional data Information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data is not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.

  • g) Responsible or controller

The person responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that decides solely or jointly with others on the purposes and means of processing personal data.

  1. Cookies

DRS Investment’s websites use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string through which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows the websites and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other internet browsers containing other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, DRS Investment can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the sense of the user. Cookies allow us to recognize the users of our website, as mentioned above. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter their access data every time they visit the website, because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online store. The online store remembers the items a customer has put in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the used internet browser and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Cookies that have already been set can also be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website can be fully used.

  1. Collection of general data and information

The website of DRS Investment collects a range of general data and information with each visit of the website by an affected person or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server’s log files. It is possible to record (1) browser types and versions used , (2) the operating system used , (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-sites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information used to avert dangers in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, DRS Investment does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. This information is needed in order (1) to deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) to optimize the contents of our website as well as the advertising for it, (3) the long-term functioning of our information technology systems and to ensure the technology of our website as well as (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyberattack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by DRS Investment, on the one hand, statistically and further with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately achieve an optimal level of protection for those of us. The anonymous data of the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.

  1. Contact via the website

Due to legal regulations, the website of DRS Investment contains information that enables quick electronic contact with our company as well as direct communication with us, which is also a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If an affected person contacts the controller via e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned will be automatically stored. Such personal data, transmitted on a voluntary basis by an affected person to the controller, is stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the person concerned. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

    • The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses the deletion of the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data.

    • The data subject has lodged an appeal against the processing pursuant to Article 7(1). Art. 21 Para. 1 DS-GVO and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the person responsible outweigh those of the data subject.

  1. Data protection for applications and in the application process

The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically.

Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz – AGG).

  1. Privacy policy for the use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to Internet sites. A web analysis service collects data on, among other things, from which website a person concerned has accessed a website (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used for the optimization of a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The data controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for the web analysis via Google Analytics. This addition is used by Google to shorten and anonymise the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned if access to our Internet pages is from a Member State of the European Union or from another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal information collected through the technical process with third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, it is possible for the person concerned to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. For this purpose, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout . This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to Internet pages may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as a contradiction. If the data subject’s information technology system is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or by another person within his/her sphere of control, the browser add-on can be reinstalled or reactivated.

Further information and Google’s applicable privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_en/analytics/.

  1. Legal basis of the processing

Par. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. Where the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, such as in the case of processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or for the rendering of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become 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 business was injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing on Art. 6 I lit. d would belong to DS-GVO. Ultimately, processing operations could be limited to Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not predominate. Such processing operations are permitted to us 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 person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO Block Exemption Regulation).

  1. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or by a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, it is our legitimate interest to conduct our business for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.

  1. Duration for which the personal data will be stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted unless they are no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

  1. Legal or contractual provisions governing the provision of personal data; 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 will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes personal data available to us which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data when our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the data subject. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee informs 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 a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the non-availability of the personal data would have.

  1. Existence of an automated decision making process

As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
