We adhere to strict safety regulations when storing, transferring or protecting your personal data against accidental loss, destruction or damage.

The data you provide to us is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL is the industry standard for encrypting personal information so that it can be securely transmitted over the Internet.

Data management

Acrontum GmbH stores personal data only for as long as necessary for the purposes for which it was obtained or to satisfy legal requirements concerning the reporting or retention of documents.

Your right to privacy

You have, under certain circumstances, the right to:

  • Information about whether we have stored personally identifiable information about you and, if so, what data this is and why we have stored and used that information.
  • Request information about your personal data (commonly known as "the data subject's right to information"). This will allow you to request a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to verify that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Correction of the personal information we have stored about you. This will allow you to correct incomplete or incorrect data that we have stored about you.
  • Deletion of your personal data. This will allow us to request that we delete or remove personal information if there is no reasonable reason to process it further. You also have the right to request us to delete or remove your personal information if you have exercised your right to object to the processing (see below).
  • Right to object to the processing of your personal data if we (or third parties) invoke a legitimate interest and if, for a specific reason, you wish to exercise your right to object to the processing in your situation. You also have the right to object if we use your personal information for direct marketing.
  • Right to object to automated decisions, including profiling, that are not subject to automated decision-making by us using your personal information or profiling from you.
  • Request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. This will allow you to request that we suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to determine the accuracy of the data or the reason for the processing.
  • Request the transmission of your personal information in electronic and structured form to you or to another party (generally known as the right to "data portability"). This will give you the opportunity to receive your information from us in an electronically usable format and to transmit your information to another party in an electronically usable format.
  • Revoke consent. In certain circumstances, if you have given us consent to collect, process, and transmit your personal information for a purpose, you have the right to revoke your consent to this particular purpose at any time. Once we receive notification that you have revoked your consent, we will no longer process your data for the purpose or purposes to which you originally consented unless we have another legitimate and legal basis for doing so.

You do not have to pay a fee to obtain information about your personal information (or to exercise any other right). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for information is clearly unfounded or disproportionate. Alternatively, under these circumstances, we may refuse to grant the insight.

We may need to ask you for more specific information to confirm your identity and to assure your right to access the information (or to exercise some of your rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not shared with unauthorized persons.

Support is available from our data protection officer.
