Data protection

Thank you for your interest in our company. Data security is of particular importance to the management of Projektgesellschaft Norderelbe mbH. It is possible to use the Projektgesellschaft Norderelbe mbH website without entering any personal data whatsoever. However, the processing of personal data could become necessary if a data subject decides to make use of particular company services via the website. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for this processing, we generally obtain the data subject’s consent.

The processing of the personal data, e.g. name, address, email address or telephone number of a data subject happens only according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in agreement with any country-specific data protection regulations applying to Projektgesellschaft Norderelbe mbH. Our company would like to use this data protection statement to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the data we collect, use and process. In addition, this data protection statement will inform data subjects of their rights.

As controller, Projektgesellschaft Norderelbe mbH has implemented a number of technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for any data processed via this website. However, any data transferred anywhere on the internet may generally be subject to security breaches, which means we cannot guarantee total protection. For this reason, it is also possible for any data subject to disclose their personal data over the phone instead.

2. Cookies

Cookies are text data that are stored on a computer’s system and saved via an internet browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Lots of cookies contain what is known as a cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique code for the cookie. It consists of a series of characters by which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific browser in which the cookie was stored. This means the websites and servers that were visited can differentiate between the individual browser of the data subject and other internet browsers that contain other cookies. A certain internet browser can be recognised and identified by its unique cookie ID. The implementation of cookies means Projektgesellschaft Norderelbe mbH can offer users of its website more user-friendly services that would not be possible without cookies.

Cookies allow information and offers on the website to be optimised for the user. As mentioned above, cookies allow us to recognise the users of our website. The point of this recognition is to make using the website easier. The user of a website that uses cookies does not, for example, have to enter their access details every time they visit that website, because these are transmitted using the cookie stored on that user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie for a shopping basket in an online shop. Using cookies, the online shop notes the articles that a customer places in their basket.

The Projektgesellschaft Norderelbe mbH website uses cookies in certain situations. Cookies are needed to store the consent of the data subject to use cookies that are not necessary for the provision of the website. This is valid for one year. The Projektgesellschaft Norderelbe mbH website also contains elements from Twitter. If the data subject consents to the use of Twitter, cookies from Twitter will be used and information transferred to Twitter. Cookies from Twitter are valid for up to two years. Further information on this can be found under number 11 of this data protection statement. The data subject can also generally prevent the use of cookies in the corresponding settings of the browser they are using and permanently deny them. Stored cookies can also be deleted at any time using a browser or other software. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the storing of cookies in the internet browser, not all of the functions of our website remain usable.


3. Collecting and processing general data and information from the website visitor

The Projektgesellschaft Norderelbe mbH website collects a variety of general data and information every time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automatic system. This general data and information are saved in the server’s log files. What can be collected: the (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an IP address, (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information which serve to prevent danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, Projektgesellschaft Norderelbe mbH does not draw conclusions about the data subject. This information is only required to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimise both the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the permanent operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and (4) to provide law enforcement agencies with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyberattack. These anonymously collected data and information are therefore statistically evaluated by Projektgesellschaft Norderelbe mbH with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data on the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

The processing of personal data is necessary to achieve the above-mentioned purposes of protecting the legitimate interest of the company in the proper provision of the website and ensuring the security of the processing in accordance with Article 1 (1) (f) GDPR.


4. Processing of personal data for customer satisfaction surveys and direct marketing

Projektgesellschaft Norderelbe mbH may use your data with your explicit and informed consent under Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR for the purposes of direct marketing (e.g. invitations to trade events, newsletters) or to undertake customer satisfaction surveys, also by email. It remains within your rights to refuse the use of your data for these purposes by writing an email to kontakt@energiekueste.de or to make use of the “disagree” function in the message you received.


5. Contact options on the website

Due to legal regulations, the Projektgesellschaft Norderelbe mbH website contains information that enables fast electronic contact with our company and direct communication with us; this also includes a general address for electronic mail (email address). If a data subject contacts the controller by email, the personal data transmitted will be automatically saved. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis from a data subject to the controller are stored for the purposes of processing or for contacting the data subject. This personal data shall not be disclosed to third parties.

The processing of personal data is necessary either for the execution and performance of a contract with the data subject pursuant to Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR, for the fulfilment of legal obligations to which Projektgesellschaft Norderelbe mbH is subject pursuant to Article 1 (1) (f) GDPR or to safeguard the legitimate interests of Projektgesellschaft Norderelbe mbH pursuant to Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The legitimate interest of Projektgesellschaft Norderelbe mbH lies in the initiation, implementation and handling of the business relationship.


6. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store personal data relating to the data subject only for the time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European legislator or by any other law or regulation to which the controller is subject. If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or any other responsible legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.


7. Implementation and use of Twitter

The controller has integrated elements of Twitter into the website which only become active after your consent according to Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly available micro-blogging site on which users can publish tweets (short messages) of a maximum of 280 characters. These short messages are visible to everyone, even those without a Twitter account. The tweets appear to the followers of that user. Followers are other users of Twitter who follow the tweets of a certain user. Twitter also uses hashtags, links and retweets to reach a wide audience. Twitter’s operating company is Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

Every time the data subject accesses one of the individual pages of this website which is operated by the controller and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Twitter component to download a display of the corresponding Twitter component from Twitter. Further information on the Twitter buttons can be found at about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons. In the course of this technical procedure, Twitter is informed about which specific subpages of our website the data subject visits. The purpose of integrating the Twitter component is to enable our users to disseminate the content of this website, to make this website known in the digital world and to increase our visitor numbers.

If the data subject is logged on to Twitter at the same time, Twitter will recognise which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting each time the subject accesses our website and for the entire duration of the stay on our website. This information is collected by the Twitter component and assigned by Twitter to the Twitter account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Twitter buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transmitted in this way is assigned to the personal Twitter user account of the data subject and stored and processed by Twitter.

Twitter receives information via the Twitter component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged on to Twitter at the same time as they are accessing our website. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Twitter component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be sent to Twitter, they can prevent this from being sent by logging out of their Twitter account before accessing our website. Twitter’s applicable data protection regulations can be found at twitter.com/privacy.
