The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration. When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data are data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection declaration explains which data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

Note on the responsible body

The responsible body for data processing on this website is: INSIRE consulting GmbH

Katernberger Str. 107
45327 Essen

E-mail: info@insire.de

Responsible body is the natural or legal person who, alone or in concert with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (eg names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Storage time

Unless a specific storage period is specified in this data protection declaration, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for the data processing no longer applies. If you make a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have any other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. tax or commercial retention periods); in the latter case, the deletion takes place after these reasons no longer apply.

Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries

Our website includes tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data can be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that no data protection level comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed in these countries.

For example, US companies are obliged to surrender personal data to security authorities without you as the person concerned being able to take legal action against this. It cannot therefore be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. secret services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to data collection in special cases and direct mail (Art. 21 DSGVO)

IF DATA PROCESSING IS BASED ON ART. 6 ABS. 1 LIT. E OR F DSGVO, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT, AT ANY TIME, TO CONTRADICTIVE TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR REASONS OBTAINED FROM YOUR SPECIFIC SITUATION; THIS APPLIES ALSO TO A PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE RELEVANT LEGAL BASIS ON WHICH A PROCESS IS BASED IS PERMITTED BY THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU CLAIM ANY DISPUTE, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE MAY PROVIDE IMPERATIVE REASONABLE REASONS FOR PROCESSING THAT PREVENT ITS INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR THE PROCESSING OF THE FORMATION, EXERCISE OR DEFENSE OF LEGAL ATTRIBUTIONS ( OPPOSITION ACCORDING TO ART 21 ABS 1 DSGVO).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS PROCESSED TO OPERATE DIRECT ADVERTISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO INTRODUCE ANY CONTESTING AGAINST THE PROCESSING OF YOU OF PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH ADVERTISING; THIS IS ALSO FOR PROFILING, IF IT IS RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU CONTEST, YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS THEN NOT USED FOR THE PURPOSES OF DIRECT ADVERTISING (CONTRARY TO ARTICLE 21 EXT. 2 DSGVO).

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the case of violations of the GDPR, the persons concerned have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged infringement. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another person responsible, this will only be done to the extent that it is technically feasible.

Information, cancellation and rectification

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if necessary, a right to correct or delete this data. You can contact us at any time if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. You can contact us at any time for this purpose. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:

If you deny the accuracy of your personal information stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the audit you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If the processing of your personal data is unlawful, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.

If we no longer need your personal information, but you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to demand that your personal information be restricted instead of being deleted.

If you have filed an objection under Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO, a balance must be made between your interests and ours. As long as it is not clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data may be - except for their storage - only with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest the European Union or a Member State.

If further personal data is processed during the sending process, this only serves to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

Your data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is over when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified.

The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.

You have the option to revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. You can also object to the storage of your personal data at any time when contacting us by e-mail. However, we would like to point out that in such a case the conversation cannot be continued.

Please address your objection to: kontakt@sir-consulting.com

All personal data stored in the course of contacting will be deleted in this case.

Web Analytics

1. Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by using the browser plug-in available under the following link. Download and install in: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp ()". As a result, IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form, so that personal references can be excluded. If the data collected about you can be linked to a person, this will be excluded immediately and the personal data will be deleted immediately.

We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Social Media

1. Social Media Presence

We maintain fan pages within various social networks and platforms with the aim of communicating with customers, interested parties and users who are active there and informing them about our services.

We would like to point out that your personal data may be processed outside the European Union, so that you may be exposed to risks (e.g. when enforcing your rights under European / German law). Please note that some US providers are certified under the Privacy Shield and have therefore undertaken to comply with EU data protection standards.

User data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created from usage behavior and the resulting interests of users. These usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the user. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data can also be stored in the usage profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).

The processing of the personal data of the users takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests in an effective information of the users and communication with the users according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit.f. GDPR. If the users are asked for their consent to the data processing by the respective providers (i.e. declare their consent, e.g. by ticking a check box or confirming a button), the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 GDPR.

Further information on the processing of your personal data and on your options to object can be found under the links below for the respective provider. The assertion of information and other rights of those affected can also be made against the providers, who then only have direct access to the data of the users and have the corresponding information at their disposal. Of course, we are available to answer any questions and support you if you need help. Provider: Facebook

2. Integration of Google Maps

On this website we use the offer of Google Maps. This enables us to show you interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to conveniently use the map function.

By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data specified under Section IV of this declaration will be transmitted to Google.

If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the provider's data protection declaration.
