Data Privacy Statement
We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of particular importance for the management of Krapohl-Wirth Consulting Group GmbH & Co. KG. A use of the internet pages of the Krapohl-Wirth Consulting Group GmbH & Co. KG is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a person wishes to use our company’s special services through our website, personal data processing may be required. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally seek the consent of the person.
The Krapohl-Wirth Consulting Group GmbH & Co. KG has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures as the controller in order to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security holes, so that absolute protection can not be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to submit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
Among others, within this data privacy statement, we use following wording:
a) personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter the “person concerned”). A natural person is considered to be identifiable who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by association with an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special features, which express the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.
b) person concerned
A person concerned is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller.
Processing is any process or series of operations performed with or without the aid of automated processes in connection with personal data, such as collecting, organizing, storing, adapting or modifying, reading, querying, using, disclosure through submission, dissemination or any other form of provision, reconciliation or association, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) restriction of the processing
Restriction of the processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim to limit their future processing.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that involves the use of such personal information to evaluate, analyze or predict certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular aspects relating to job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, whereabouts, or relocation of that natural person.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific person without the need for additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not being assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person
g) responsible person or data controller
he responsible person or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, institution, alone or together with others, who decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by union law or the law of the member states, the controller or the specific criteria for his designation may be provided for under union or national law.
h) order processor
An order processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, institution that processes personal data on behalf of the data controller.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, agency, institution or other entity to whom personal data is disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data under union or national law in connection with a particular mission are not considered to be beneficiaries.
j) hird party
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, institution other than the person concerned, the controller, the order processor and the persons authorized under the direct responsibility of the controller or processor to process the personal data.
Consent is any act of volition voluntarily and unambiguously given by the person concerned in an informed and unambiguous manner in the form of a statement or other unambiguous confirmatory act which indicates that the person concerned agrees to the processing of the personal data concerning them.

h) automated decisions in individual cases including profiling
Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right, as granted by the European Directive and Regulatory Authority, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal effect on it or, in a similar manner, significantly affects it; unless the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the person concerned and the controller, or (2) permitted by union or member state legislation to which the controller is subject, and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard the rights (3) with the express consent of the person concerned.

If the person concerned wishes to claim automated decision-making rights, they may contact our data protection officer or other data controller at any time.
i) Right to revoke a data protection consent
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulatory Authority, to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the person concerned wishes to assert their right to withdraw consent, they may at any time contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller.
The controller has integrated the component Google Analytics (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors of websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website an affected person has come to a website (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for which length of stay a sub-page was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analytics via Google Analytics. This addendum will shorten and anonymise the IP address of the person concerned if Google accesses our website 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 analyze visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile for us online reports showing the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics uses a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are, has already been explained above. By using this cookie Google is enabled to analyze the usage of our website. Each time one of the pages of this website is accessed by the controller and a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically initiated by the respective Google Analytics component to submit data to Google for the purposes of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google receives information about personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently make commission settlements possible.
The cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of site visits by the data subject. Each time you visit our website, your personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal information is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer this personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
We have entered into an agreement with Google for order data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

9. Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 I letter GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose.
If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract of which the person concerned is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on art. 6 I letter b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries about our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on art. 6 I letter c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance 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 I letter d GDPR.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on art. 6 I letter f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly permitted because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, it is considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).
10. Qualified interests in the processing being pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on art 6 I letter f GDPR, our legitimate interest is the conducting of our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders.
11. Duration for which the personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.
12. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the person concerned to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We clarify that the provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contractor). Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is required to provide us with personal information when our company concludes a contract with him/her.
Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. Before provision of data by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer will inform the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or for the conclusion of the contract, if there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what would be the consequence of the non-provision of the personal data.
To protect your requests via the internet form, we use the reCAPTCHA service of Google Inc. (Google). The query is used to distinguish whether the input is made by a human or abusive by automated, mechanical processing. The query includes the sending of the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google.
For this purpose, your input will be transmitted to Google and used there.
However, 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 US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address sent by your browser as part of reCaptcha will not be merged with other data provided by Google.
14. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
