3 Informational use of our website

Your IP address is processed by our web host (processor) when you access our website; without processing your IP address, we would not be able to display the website in your web browser. Your IP address is briefly held in the web server’s volatile memory while the web page is being transmitted to you; it is then immediately anonymised. In this context, the IP address is processed on the basis of Art. 6(1) f) GDPR.


In order to provide you with our website in a more targeted manner, we use cookies. We need the cookies as part of improving our website. Cookies are small data packets that our web server sends to your computer to identify you for the duration of your visit. You can set your browser to inform you about cookies being placed. This makes the use of cookies transparent for you. We only use transient cookies (session cookies); these are deleted as soon as you close your web browser. The cookies are used on the basis of Art. 6(1) f) GDPR.


We also evaluate your visit to our website statistically, i.e. anonymously. The processing is executed on the basis of Art. 6(1) f) GDPR.


4. Your obligation to provide personal data

If we take action on your behalf (e.g. as part of a contact inquiry), we can only do so if you provide us with all the personal data required for this – your contact information (e.g. name and e-mail address). If you do not wish to do this, we may not be able to take action on your behalf.


5. We obtain personal data from these sources

We process the personal data we receive from you. In addition, where permitted, we process personal data obtained from public sources (e.g. debtor directories (creditworthiness data), company websites (contact details)) or other sources (e.g. credit reference agencies (creditworthiness data)) in the context of an existing or prospective business relationship. We will be happy to provide you with more details in specific individual cases.


6. Your rights

If you would like to know what personal data we have stored about you, we will tell you, because you have a right of access in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR in conjunction with section 34 of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG).


If you tell us that personal data is incorrect, we must correct it. You have a right of rectification pursuant to Art. 16 GDPR.


You have a right to have your personal data erased in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR in conjunction with section 35 BDSG.


In rare cases (e.g. if it is not clear whether personal data is correct or incorrect or if we would like to delete your personal data but you do not want us to do so), you can request processing of your personal data to be restricted. You have a right to restrict the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 18 GDPR.


You have a right of objection pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR.


You can withdraw any consent granted us to process your personal data at any time with effect for the future.


If you do not wish to receive direct marketing from us, you can object to this at any time and we will no longer use your personal data for direct marketing in the future. This also applies to receiving our newsletter.


If you object to the processing of your personal data, this shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing based on your consent until the objection.


You have a right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR.


If you make use of your rights, it usually costs you nothing. Contact us in such an instance.


If you have a complaint or a question about data protection, please contact us (point 1 above) or our data protection officer (point 2 above). You equally have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.


7. Recipients to whom we pass on your personal data

We use your personal data within Technologiepark Karlsruhe GmbH to fulfil our contractual and legal obligation as well as permissible rights.


If necessary and permissible or legally obligatory, we will pass on your personal data to third parties or to processors. Processors process personal data on our behalf and exclusively according to our specifications. Third parties or processors are, for example, government agencies, credit agencies (for creditworthiness assessment), debt collection companies and IT companies (e.g. for the operation of our website).


8. We store your personal data for as short a time as possible

We store your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil our contractual obligation, a legal obligation or within the scope of a legitimate interest. Your personal data will then be deleted as soon as we no longer need it and no law requires us to continue storing it. Your personal data will not be deleted as long as they are required for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.


9. Your data will not be transferred to countries outside the EU or to international organisations. We do not carry out any processing based on an automated decision. We do not carry out profiling (automated processing with the aim of evaluating certain personal aspects).
