Thank you for your interest in our website. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of PCPROTECH. The use of the Internet pages of PCPROTECH is possible without submitting any personal data, however if a visitor wants to use special services via our website, such as purchases, membership or contacting us, 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 visitor.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a visitor shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to PCPROTECH. By means of this data protection declaration, our website would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, visitors are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.
As the controller, PCPROTECH has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data that is 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 visitor is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone, email etc.
The data protection declaration of PCPROTECH 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:
2. 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:
139 Showfields Road
Tunbridge Wells TN2 5UN
Phone: 01892 614952
The visitor 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 cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the visitor 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 PCPROTECH collects a series of general data and information when a visitor or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected information 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, PCPROTECH does not draw any conclusions about the visitor. 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, PCPROTECH 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 visitor.
5. Subscription to our newsletters
On the website of PCPROTECH, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our PCPROTECH's newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.
PCPROTECH informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about PCPROTECH offers. PCPROTECH's newsletter may only be received by the visitor if (1) the visitor has a valid e-mail address and (2) the visitor registers for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a visitor for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the visitor is authorised 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 visitor 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 visitor 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 visitor at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the visitor 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 un-subscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way.
The newsletter of PCPROTECH may contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of on-line marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, PCPROTECH may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a visitor, and which links in the e-mail were called up by visitors.
Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analysed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the visitor. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. visitors 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, this personal data will be deleted by the controller. PCPROTECH automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
7. Contact possibility via the website
The website of PCPROTECH contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our PCPROTECH, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a visitor contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the visitor are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a visitor to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the visitor. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.
8. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data
The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the visitor 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.
9. Rights of the visitor
10. 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 visitor 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 PCPROTECH subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfilment 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 visitor or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in PCPROTECH 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 mentioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by PCPROTECH or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the visitor 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 visitor is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
11. 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 favour of the well-being of all our employees and/or shareholders.
12. 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 corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
13. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the visitor 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 visitor provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The visitor is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when PCPROTECH signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the visitor could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the visitor, the visitor must contact firstname.lastname@example.org. PCPROTECH clarifies to the visitor 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.
14. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
