INFORMATION ON THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA
Art. 13 Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council
The protection of personal data is important to us. We only use the personal data we collect in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations.
1. What kind of data are collected by VSB?
VSB collects and stores your personal data (e.g. name, address, telephone number or e-mail address) if and to the extent that this is necessary to continue our business operations in economic terms (Art. 6 Sec. 1 (f) GDPR) and only if your data are available from a publicly accessible source such as the Internet or a business directory or if you provide us with your data in one of the following ways:
- using the online application form or the contact form on our website;
- by sending us a request by post or e-mail;
- by sending us your data in the context of concluding a contract or by means of a business card.
We do not collect any personal data if you use our website for information purposes only. In this case, our web server uses so-called log files to store the following information by default: the browser used, the operating system, the IP address of your computer shortened and anonymised, the websites previously visited, the access time and the amount of data sent. This information cannot be used to identify you. These data are collected in accordance with Art. 6 Sec. 1 (f) GDPR and are used exclusively for data security and statistical purposes. These data are not used to create individual user profiles and are not shared with third parties.
In particular, we use so-called cookies to optimise our online offer. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of the use of our website. We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc. (USA), to evaluate these data. Within the framework of the contractual data agreement, which we as the website operator have entered into with Google, Google collects statistical data on the behaviour of visitors to the website and thus enables an anonymous statistical evaluation. Among other aspects, it provides information on the number of visitors to the page, the length of stay, the browser or the origin of the visitors. We also use Google Analytics reports on demographics, where we use data from Google's interest-based advertising and visitor data from third-party providers (e.g. age, gender and interests). Such data cannot be used to identify a specific person.
Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses. Personal data can only be stored in cookies if you have given your consent and if it is absolutely necessary for technical reasons, e.g. to facilitate a secure login. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. As part of this process, users' IP addresses are shortened in EU Member States, in European Economic Area Member States and in other Member States that have adhered to the GDPR. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transmitted in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Once the IP address has been shortened, it can no longer be used to identify you. The IP address transmitted by your browser is not linked to any other data stored by Google. Google LLC adheres to the provisions of European data protection legislation and has been certified under the Privacy Shield. (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
You can prevent cookies from being stored through your browser settings. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie about your use of the website and the processing of these data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=it

2. How does VSB manage my data?
We collect and use your personal data to respond to your requests, to negotiate contracts or to fulfil our contractual obligations if a contract is already in place. Our data processing is limited to the information required for these purposes. Once such data are no longer required for the fulfilment of these purposes, they are periodically deleted, unless they must be retained due to mandatory retention periods as detailed in tax and/or commercial law or for evidence according to statutory limitation periods.
Your data is processed in Germany. If you contact one of our international offices, your data will be processed in accordance with the legal requirements applicable in other European and non-European countries.
Some of our business activities are carried out by subsidiaries of the group or by third-party partners (staffing service providers, IT service providers). Within this context, personal data are only shared as defined in the contractual data processing agreement in accordance with Art. 28 Sec. 3 GDPR and only to the extent and for the duration necessary to perform the service. Furthermore, your data will only be passed on to third parties if we are obliged to submit them to a state authority due to mandatory legal provisions or if you have expressly consented to this.
3. How does VSB keep my data safe?
We use all means at our disposal, both technological and organisational, to protect your data from unauthorised access, loss or alteration. We continue to improve our security measures in accordance with technological developments. The members of our staff are obliged to maintain confidentiality and ensure data protection. Nevertheless, we would like to point out that the transmission of data over the Internet, e.g. by e-mail, may involve certain risks or security leaks. It is therefore impossible to completely protect data from unauthorised access.
4. What are my rights as a data subject?
You are entitled to
a) obtain, upon request and free of charge, information on whether personal data concerning you are stored at VSB and for what purpose, as set out in Art. 15 of the GDPR.
b) request the correction and/or modification of inaccurate or incomplete data in accordance with Art. 16 of the GDPR.
c) withdraw the consent previously given at any time with future effect in accordance with Art. 7 Sec. 3 of the GDPR.
d) object to the processing of data based on legitimate interests for reasons arising from the specific situation in accordance with Art. 21 Sec. 1 of the GDPR.
e) request the deletion of data in specific cases as defined in Art. 17 of the GDPR, in particular if the data in question are no longer necessary for the intended purpose, if there are no legal grounds for processing, or if you have withdrawn consent in accordance with (c) above or have objected to processing in accordance with (d) above.
f) request the restriction of data processing in certain circumstances as defined in Art. 18 of the GDPR when the data cannot be deleted or when the obligation to delete is questionable.
g) data portability in accordance with Art. 20 of the GDPR, namely the right to receive the personal data you have provided to us in a commonly used machine-readable format and the right to pass it on to third parties.
h) lodge a complaint about our data processing with the relevant supervisory authority pursuant to Art. 77 of the GDPR.
