We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data pro-tection is of a particularly high priority for the management of the agiplan GmbH. The use of the Internet pages of the agiplan GmbH is possible without any indi-cation of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the agiplan GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection decla-ration, of the rights to which they are entitled.
As the controller, the agiplan GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.
Data subjects also have the possibility – after making an appointment – to view personal data provided to agiplan GmbH and to have it corrected, blocked or deleted in accordance with the legal situation.
All websites are encrypted using SSL, depending on the browser used, using 256-bit SSL.
agiplan GmbH protects its websites and other systems by technical and organiza-tional measures against loss, destruction, access, modification by unauthorized persons.
The data protection declaration of the agiplan GmbH is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.
In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:
a) Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable na-tural person (“data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
b) Data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal per-son, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
j) Third party
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambi-guous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
3. Name and Address of the controller
Controller for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), other data protection laws applicable in Member states of the European Union and other provisions related to data protection is:
Kölner Straße 80-82
45481 Mülheim an der Ruhr
Phone: +49 208 9925-0
4. Data protection officer
The data protection officer of the controller is to be contacted at:
Kölner Straße 80-82
45481 Mülheim an der Ruhr
Any data subject can contact our data protection officer directly at any time with any questions or suggestions regarding data protection.
The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set coo-kies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software pro-grams. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deacti-vates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
6. Collection of general data and information
The website of the agiplan GmbH collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the agiplan GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the agiplan GmbH analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
7. Subscription to our newsletters
On the website of the agiplan GmbH, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise's newsletter. The agiplan GmbH informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers.
We send our newsletters both within the scope of the legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO (taking into account recital 47, last sentence, according to which direct advertising may constitute a legitimate interest) and on the basis of your informed consent, including double opt-in.
When ordering the newsletter on our website, only a valid e-mail address is re-quired (mandatory field). Further information is only used for personalised contact within the cover letter and is provided on a voluntary basis. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail in the double opt-in procedure is sent to the e-mail address entered by the person concerned for the newsletter dispatch for the first time. This confirmation e-mail serves to check whether the owner of the e-mail address is authorized to receive the newsletter.
During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.
The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way.
Newsletter2Go is used as newsletter software. Personal data will be transmitted to Newsletter2Go GmbH. Newsletter2Go is forbidden to sell the data of the data subject and to use it for other purposes than for the dispatch of newsletters and the dispatch evaluation.
By using Newsletter2Go, agiplan GmbH can carry out a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. As part of the dispatch eva-luation, Newsletter2Go provides agiplan GmbH with information as to whether and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject and which links in the e-mail were called up by it.
agiplan GmbH has concluded a corresponding contract for order processing with Newsletter2Go GmbH within the meaning of Art. 28 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Newsletter2Go GmbH is a TÜV Rheinland certified service provider with certified data protection management.
8. Contact possibility via the website
The website of the agiplan GmbH contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.
9. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data
The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.
If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.
10. Rights of the data subject
a) Right of confirmation
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed.

d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not necessary:
- The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

An employee of agiplan GmbH shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.
Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required. An employees of the agiplan GmbH will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.

If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to re-quest the restriction of the processing of personal data stored by the agiplan GmbH, he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the agiplan GmbH will arrange the restriction of the processing.
f) Right to data portability
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she shall have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, as long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact any employee of the agiplan GmbH.

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The agiplan GmbH shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the pro-cessing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If the agiplan GmbH processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the agiplan GmbH to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the agiplan GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her parti-cular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her by the agiplan GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact any employee of the agiplan GmbH. In addition, the data subject is free in the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her, or similarly significantly affects him or her, as long as the decision (1) is not is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is not authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on the data subject's explicit consent.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the agiplan GmbH.
i) Right to withdraw data protection consent

11. Data protection for applications and the application procedures
agiplan GmbH collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of the processing of the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is the case, in particular, if an applicant submits corresponding application documents by e-mail or by means of a web form on the website to the controller. If agiplan GmbH concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant by agiplan GmbH, the application documents shall be automatically erased two months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller are opposed to the erasure. Other legitimate interest in this relation is, e.g. a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
12. Data protection regulations on the use and application of tracking tools
Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)
agiplan GmbH has integrated the component Google Analytics (with anonymiza-tion function) on its website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to Internet sites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on the website from which a data subject has accessed a website (so-called referrer), 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 to optimize a website and for cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The Google Analytics component is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
For web analysis via Google Analytics, agiplan GmbH uses the suffix "_gat._anonymizeIp". By means of this addition, Google shortens and anonymizes the IP address of the person's Internet connection when accessing our Internet pages from a member state of the European Union or from another state party 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 collected to evaluate the use of our website, among other things, to compile online reports for us that show 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 data subject. An explanation of cookies is given in chapter 4 of this data protection declaration. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by agiplan GmbH and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused 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 data subject, which serves Google, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission statements.
Cookies are used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which access came and the frequency with which the data subject visits our website. Whenever a person visits our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as shown in chapter 4, 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 placing a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Google Analytics will be explained in more detail under this link www.google.com/intl/de_en/analytics/.
The agiplan GmbH uses Google-AdWords, an advertisement integration from Google, on its website. This service enables us to place advertisements in the re-sults of the Google search engine and in the network of AdWords participants. Pre-defined search terms ensure that our ads only appear in the context of relevant search queries. A special algorithm distributes our advertisements in the connected network to keyword-related websites - taking into account the search terms we have chosen. The insertion of external advertising, however, does not take place on our website.
Responsible for Google AdWords as defined by the DSGVO is Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
If you access our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on your PC, which remains valid for 30 days and does not identify you personally. This cookie logs - without personal reference - to what extent a visitor who came to our site via an AdWords ad and which pages and functions are accessed or clicked on during a visit to our website. In addition, the stored information is used to generate visitor statistics for our website, which can be used to evaluate how many visitors have reached us via the respective AdWords ad.
Google Tag Manager
To simplify the administration of its analysis instruments, agiplan GmbH uses the Google Tag Manager. This tool does not process any personal (analysis) data and does not place any cookies on your PC. We use Google Tag Manager to centrally control and manage our collected analytics mechanisms, of which we have listed the privacy notices separately here. The setup and use of the Tag Manager itself by the administrator or a registered user (e.g. one of our employees) is recorded by Google and evaluated accordingly.
Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland is responsible for the Google Tag Manager within the meaning of the DSGVO.
For more information on how the Google Tag Manager works, please visit: www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/.
Lead Inspector & Liidio Oy/ Leadfeeder
For the statistical evaluation of visitor access to its website, agiplan GmbH uses two different tools for the collection of data: With the technologies of Lead Inspector GmbH and Liidio Oy/ Leadfeeder, data is collected, processed and stored for marketing purposes and for the recognition of web visitors.
The technologies of both providers use this data to determine addresses, but only in those cases in which they can ensure that it is a company and not a single person as a visitor. So-called cookies may be used for this purpose (cf. Chapter 4.). Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of the use of the website.
The company data collected by Lead Inspector GmbH and Liidio Oy/ Leadfeeder may also contain personal data. Both providers may use information left behind by visits to the websites to create anonymous user profiles. If IP addresses are collected, they will be made anonymous immediately after collection by deleting the last number block.
Both Lead Inspector GmbH and Liidio Oy/ Leadfeeder use appropriate technical standards and organizational measures for data collection and forwarding to agiplan GmbH in order to ensure optimum data protection.
agiplan GmbH has concluded an agreement for order data processing with both providers in which the data protection rights and obligations of both parties in connection with the processing of customer data, including personal data con-tained therein, are recorded.
13. Data protection regulations for the use of social media plug-ins
agiplan GmbH does not use plug-ins from social media providers such as Face-book, Twitter or Xing.
Only icons from Facebook, Twitter and Xing are embedded on the website of agiplan GmbH, which enable direct forwarding to the respective social media channel of agiplan GmbH. No personal data is collected by the named social media providers.
14. Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the ful-fillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital inte-rests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insu-rance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sen-tence 2 GDPR).
15. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
16. Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corres-ponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the ful-fillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
17. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Re-quirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with per-sonal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
18. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
