We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of Mr. Hanf. The use of the Internet pages of Mr. Hanf is generally possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our company 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, email 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 Mr. Hanf. Through this data protection declaration, our company 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, through this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.
As the controller, Mr. Hanf 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.
The data protection declaration of Mr. Hanf 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, among others, the following terms:
a) Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural 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, psychological, 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, organization, 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 analyze or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements.
Pseudonymization 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 organizational 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
The controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, 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.
A processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
The 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.
j) Third party
A 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 authorized to process personal data.
Consent is any freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous 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.
2. Name and Address of the controller
The 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:
Phone: +43 (0) 676 512 497 1
By using cookies, Mr. Hanf can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.
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 thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
4. Collection of general data and information
The website of Mr. Hanf collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the server's 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 referrer), (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, Mr. Hanf does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and 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, Mr. Hanf 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.
5. Registration on our website
The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller with the indication of personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller, and for his own purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or more processors, e.g., a parcel service provider, who also uses personal data for an internal purpose attributable to the controller.
By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address—assigned by the internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed offenses. Therefore, the storage of this data is necessary to secure the controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.
The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary indication of personal data, is intended to enable the controller to offer the data subject contents or services that can only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to change the personal data specified during the registration at any time, or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the controller.
The controller shall, at any time, provide information upon request to each data subject as to what personal data are stored about the data subject. Furthermore, the data controller shall correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. The entirety of the controller’s employees are available to the data subject in this respect as contact persons.
6. Subscription to Our Newsletter
On the Mr. Hanf website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company's newsletter. The personal data transmitted to the data controller when ordering the newsletter is determined by the input mask used for this purpose.
Mr. Hanf informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about company offers. The company's newsletter can generally only be received by the person concerned if (1) the person has a valid e-mail address and (2) the person registers for the newsletter shipping. For legal reasons, a confirmation email will be sent to the e-mail address initially entered by the person concerned for newsletter shipping using the double-opt-in procedure. This confirmation email is used to verify whether the owner of the e-mail address as the person concerned has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.
When signing up for the newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a person concerned at a later date and therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the data controller.
The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by email, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as 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 can be terminated by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the person concerned 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 data controller, or to communicate this to the data controller in a different way.
7. Newsletter Tracking
The newsletters of Mr. Hanf contain so-called counting pixels. A counting pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such emails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Through the embedded counting pixel, Mr. Hanf can see if and when an email was opened by a person concerned, and which links in the email were called up by persons concerned.
Such personal data collected in the newsletters' counting pixels are stored and analyzed by the data controller to optimize the shipping of the newsletter and to adjust the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Persons concerned are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the data controller. Mr. Hanf automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
8. Contact Possibility via the Website
The Mr. Hanf website contains, due to legal regulations, information that enables a quick electronic contact to our company, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a person concerned contacts the data controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a person concerned to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the person concerned. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.
9. Comment Function in the Blog on the Website
Mr. Hanf offers users the possibility to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog, which is located on the website of the data controller. A blog is a web-based, publicly-accessible portal, in which one or several people, called bloggers or web-bloggers, can post articles or write thoughts in so-called blog-posts. Blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.
If a person concerned leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the person concerned, information on the time of the comment entry as well as the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the person concerned will be stored and published. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to the person concerned is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons, and in case the person concerned violates the rights of third parties, or posts illegal content through a comment. The storage of these personal data is, therefore, in the own interest of the data controller, so that he can exculpate in the event of an infringement. This collected personal data will not be passed on to third parties, unless such a pass on is required by law or serves the aim of the defense rights of the data controller.
10. Subscription to Comments in the Blog on the Website
Comments made in the Mr. Hanf blog can generally be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, there is the possibility that a commentator subscribes to the comments following his or her comment on a specific blog post.
If a person concerned opts for the option to subscribe to comments, the data controller sends an automatic confirmation email, to double-check via the double-opt-in procedure whether the owner of the specified email address has indeed opted for this option. The option to subscribe to comments can be terminated at any time.
11. Routine Deletion 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.
12. Rights of the Data Subject
a) Right to confirmation
Every data subject has the right granted by the European legislator to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
b) Right to access
Every data subject affected by processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator to obtain at any time free information about his or her stored personal data and a copy of this information from the controller. Furthermore, the European legislator has provided access to the following information:
the purposes of the processing
the categories of personal data being processed
the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations
if possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period
the existence of the right to request rectification or erasure of personal data, or restriction of processing of personal data concerning the data subject, or to object to such processing
the existence of the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
if the personal data are not collected from the data subject: Any available information as to their source
the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject
Furthermore, the data subject has the right to obtain information as to whether personal data are transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. Where this is the case, the data subject also has the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer.
If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of access, he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller.
c) Right to rectification
Every data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator to demand the immediate correction of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Furthermore, taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject has the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)
Every data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator to demand from the controller the immediate deletion of personal data concerning him or her, provided one of the following reasons applies and as long as the processing is not necessary:
The personal data have been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
The data subject withdraws consent on which the processing is based according to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing.
The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR, and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.
The personal data have been unlawfully processed.
The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1) of the GDPR.
If one of the above reasons applies and a data subject wishes to request the deletion of personal data stored by Mr. Hanf, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller. The Mr. Hanf employee will promptly ensure that the deletion request is complied with immediately.
If the personal data has been made public by Mr. Hanf and our company as the controller is obliged to delete the personal data pursuant to Article 17(1) of the GDPR, Mr. Hanf, taking into account the available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the published personal data that the data subject has requested the deletion by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not necessary. The Mr. Hanf employee will arrange the necessary in individual cases.
e) Right to restriction of processing
Every data subject has the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the following applies:
The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of their use instead.
The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of the processing of personal data stored by Mr. Hanf, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller. The Mr. Hanf employee will arrange the restriction of the processing.
f) Right to data portability
Every data subject has 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 also has 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 Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) 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 has the right to have the 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.
To assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact a Mr. Hanf employee.
g) Right to object
Every data subject has the right granted by the European legislator, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to object 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.
Mr. Hanf shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights, and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
If Mr. Hanf 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 Mr. Hanf to the processing for direct marketing purposes, Mr. Hanf will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
Furthermore, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her by Mr. Hanf 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.
To exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact any employee of Mr. Hanf or another employee. Furthermore, in connection with the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, the data subject is free to exercise their right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
Every data subject has 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 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 decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject's explicit consent, Mr. Hanf shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.
i) Right to withdraw data protection consent
Every data subject has the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to the processing of his or her personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw consent, he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller.
13. Data protection provisions about the application and use of employment procedures
The data controller shall process and store 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 to the controller by electronic means, for example, by email or via a web form on the website. If the data controller 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 the controller, the application documents shall be automatically deleted two months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller are opposed to deletion. Another legitimate interest in this respect is, for example, a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
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 processing operations that are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment 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 interests 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 insurance 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 above 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 Sentence 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 criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
17. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement 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 personal 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. Our 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.
