Rights of Objection

Please note the following in connection with the right to object:

If you object to your data being processed purpose of direct advertising, we will no longer process your data for these purposes. You may object free of charge without following any particular form to: info(at)hammermuseum.de.

If we process your data for the purpose of safeguarding your legitimate interests, you can object at any time for reasons arising from this particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for doing so that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or if processing data serves to assert, exercise or defend legal interests.

Purposes and Statutory Bases of Data Using

When processing your personal data, we will observe the provisions of the EU GDPR and all other applicable data protection provisions. The statutory bases for data processing arise in particular from Section 6 EU GDPR.

We use your data to initiate business transactions, fulfil contractual and statutory obligations, carry out contractual relationships, offer products and services and to reinforce customer relationships, which may also include analyses for marketing purposes and direct advertising. The statutory bases of data processing are formed by the contract (purchase contract, Section 6, I, 1 (b) GDPR), consent (Section 6 I, 1 [a] GDPR) and data processing (Section 6 I, 1 [f] GDPR) in cases of legitimate interest.

Your consent also constitutes a data protection law-related provision that requires permission to be given. In this case, we are informing you here of the purposes of data processing and your right to rescind your consent. Should your consent also concern processing special categories of personal data, we will point this out to you explicitly in the consent (Section 88, Subsection 1 EU GDPR).

Special categories of personal data as defined by Section 9, Subsection 1 EU GDPR, will only be processed if this is required by legislative provisions and if there is no reason to assume that your legitimate interests outweigh exclusion from processing (Section 88, Subsection 1 EU GDPR).

Passing on Personal Data to Third Parties

We will pass on your data only on the basis of legislative provisions or if the related consent has been given. Otherwise, personal data will not be passed to third parties unless we are obliged to do so further to compelling legislative provisions (forwarding to external quarters such as regulatory authorities or criminal prosecution authorities).

Recipients of Data / Categories of Recipients

Within our foundation we will ensure that only those persons who need your data to carry out contractual and statutory obligations actually receive them. The data will be transmitted to the Sales, Service and Communications Departments only.

In many cases, service providers assist our operational departments to carry out their tasks. The necessary agreements have already been concluded with all service providers. Where orders are processed, our Purchasing Department will ensure that the necessary data-processing agreements have been concluded.

Transfer of Data to Third-Party Countries / Intention to Transfer Data to Third-Party Countries

Storage Periods of Your Data

We will store your data for as long as we need them for each purpose of processing. Please note that numerous retention periods require that data will (need to) be stored for the future. In particular, this will affect retention periods required by commercial or tax law, such as the German Commercial Code or the German Fiscal Code, etc.). If there are no further retention obligations in place, the data will be routinely deleted after the intended purpose has been achieved.

We can also retain data if you have given us your consent to do so or if there is a legal dispute, in which case, we will use it as evidence as part of statutory expiry periods which can last up to 30 years; the regular expiry period is three years.
