Thank you for your interest in our company. Data protection is particularly important for SEEHASE Consulting. The SEEHASE Consulting websites can be used without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject 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 there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
SEEHASE Consulting, as the body responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as comprehensively as possible. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
The body responsible within the meaning of the Basic Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws in force in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is:

Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system via your computer and your connection to the internet. Cookies cannot be used to start programs or to transmit viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable the correct display of our web pages. Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
Collection of general data and information
The SEEHASE Consulting website collects general data and information each time a person or an automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. We may record (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 referrer), (4) the sub-websites 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 providers of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
SEEHASE Consulting does not draw any conclusions about the data subject when using this general data and information. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) optimise the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber-attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by SEEHASE Consulting statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order ultimately to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
Contact via the website
The website of SEEHASE Consulting contains, due to legal regulations, information that enables quick electronic contact and direct communication with us. If a data subject contacts the data controller via e-mail or a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data voluntarily provided by the data subject to the data controller will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.
Integration of third-party services and content
We use content or service offers from third parties within our online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online services within the meaning of article 6 section 1 of the GDPR) in order to integrate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”).
This always requires that the third party providers of this content detect the IP address of the users since without the IP address they could not send the content to their browser. Therefore, the IP address is required to display this content. We make every effort to only use content where respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the contents. Third-party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. “Pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may include technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information about the use of our online offer, as well as be linked to such information from other sources.

SEEHASE Consulting links to YouTube on this website. YouTube is an internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips and other users to view, rate and comment on them free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, music videos, trailers or videos produced by users can be called up via the Internet portal.
Operating company of YouTube is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is an affiliate company of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is overviewed by the data controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been linked, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/. In the course of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google are informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject. If the data subject is logged on to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognises which specific page of our website the data subject visits by calling up a page that contains a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.
YouTube and Google receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged on to YouTube at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such a transmission of this information to YouTube and Google is not desired by the data subject, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their YouTube account before calling upon our website.
The data protection regulations published by YouTube, which can be accessed at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google

Furthermore, the data subject has a right of access to information as to whether personal data has been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject also has the right to obtain information on the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer.
If the data subject wishes to make use of this right of information, they can contact us at any time.
c) Right to correction: Any data subject whose personal data has been processed shall have the right granted by the European guidelines and regulations to request the immediate correction of inaccurate personal data concerning the person. Furthermore, taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, the person may contact an employee of the data controller at any time.
d) Right to deletion (right to be forgotten): Any data subject whose personal data is processed shall have the right granted by the European guidelines and regulations to require the data controller to delete personal data relating to the data subject without delay, provided that one of the following reasons applies and provided that processing is not necessary:
The personal data has been collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which it is no longer necessary.
The data subject withdraws their consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6, section 1, subsection a of the GDPR or Article 9, section 2, subsection a of the GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
The data subject opposes processing under Article 21, section 1 of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing or the data subject opposes processing under Article 21, section 2 of the GDPR.
The personal data has been processed unlawfully.
The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under European Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.
The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with article 8, section 1 of the GDPR.
If one of the above-mentioned reasons applies and a data subject wishes to have personal data stored at SEEHASE Consulting deleted, they can contact us at any time.
If the personal data of SEEHASE Consulting has been made public and our company is responsible pursuant to Art. 17 Para. 1 DS-GMO, SEEHASE Consulting takes appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other data processors who process the published personal data, that the data subject has requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data from these other data processors, insofar as the processing is not necessary.
e) Right to limitation of processing: Any data subject shall have the right granted by the European guidelines and regulations to require the data controller to restrict processing if one of the following conditions is met:
The accuracy of the personal data is disputed by the data subject for a period that enables the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses the deletion of personal data and instead requests that the use of the personal data be restricted.
The data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
The data subject has filed an objection to the processing pursuant to article 21 section 1 of the GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the data controller outweigh those of the data subject.
If one of the above-mentioned conditions is given and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored at SEEHASE Consulting, they can contact us for this at any time.
f) Right to the transferability of data: Any data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to receive personal data concerning the person provided by the data subject to a data controller in a structured, current and machine-readable format. The data subject shall also have the right to transmit such data to another data controller without obstruction by the existing data controller to whom the personal data has been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent provided for in Article 6, section 1, subsection a of the GDPR or article 9, section 2, subsection a of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6, section 1, subsection b of the GDPR and that the processing is carried out using automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of public authority conferred on the data controller. Furthermore, in exercising his right to data transferability pursuant to article 20, section 1 of the GDPR, the data subject has the right that the personal data be transferred directly by a data controller to another data controller, provided this is technically feasible and provided that the rights and freedoms of other data subjects are not affected thereby. The data subject may contact us at any time to assert the right to data transferability.
g) Right of objection: Any data subject whose personal data is processed shall have the right granted by the European guidelines and regulations, for reasons arising from their particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning them on the basis of article 6, section 1, subsection e or f of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. SEEHASE Consulting no longer processes personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling grounds for processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If SEEHASE Consulting processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to SEEHASE Consulting processing for direct marketing purposes, SEEHASE Consulting will no longer process the personal data for these purposes. Furthermore, the data subject has the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning them which is carried out at SEEHASE Consulting for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with article 89, section 1of the GDPR for reasons arising from his particular situation, unless such processing is necessary to fulfil a task in the public interest. To exercise the right of objection, the data subject may contact SEEHASE Consulting directly. The data subject shall also be free to exercise his right of objection in relation to the use of information society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.
h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling: Any data subject whose personal data is processed shall have the right granted by the European guidelines and regulations not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effect against them or significantly affects them in a similar manner, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) is admissible under Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject and that such law contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) with the explicit consent of the data subject. If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is made with the explicit consent of the data subject, SEEHASE Consulting takes appropriate measures to protect the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the data controller, to state his own position and to challenge the decision. If the data subject wishes to assert rights relating to automated decisions, they can contact us at any time.
i) Right to revoke consent under data protection law: Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European guidelines and regulations to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the data subject wishes to exercise their right to withdraw their consent, they can contact us at any time.
Legal basis of processing
Article 6, section 1, subsection a of the GDPR provides our company a legal basis for processing operations from 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 a party, as is the case for example with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on article 6, section1, subsection b of the GDPR. The same applies to such processing processes that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. 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 were injured in our company and his name or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. The processing would then be based on article 6, section 1, subsection d of the GDPR.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on article 6, section1, subsection f of the GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. These particular processing procedures are permitted to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it has taken the view that a legitimate interest can be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (Recital 47, 2nd sentence, GDPR).
Entitled interests in the processing pursued by the data controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6, section 1, subsection f of the GDPR, it is in our legitimate interest to conduct our business for the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
Duration for which the personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessary for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide them
We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner).
In some cases, it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded if a data subject provides us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company enters into a contract with him/her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact us. We inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or required for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the failure to provide the personal data would have.
Existence of automated decision making
As a responsible company, we do without automatic decision-making or profiling.
