Personal data are any information about the personal and factual details of an identified or identifiable individual. Your personal data therefore include all data that is associated with your person, such as your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address.

Personal data are collected, processed, and used by us only if and insofar you have voluntarily provided us with the relevant data for the specific collection or use of the data, a legal provision allows collection and/or use of the specific data, or you have previously explicitly consented to the specific data collection and/or use.

In connection with the pure informational use of our website, it is not necessary for you to provide personal data.

When you contact us, we collect and use only the data, which your internet browser automatically transmits, such as pages viewed, the type and operating system of the internet browser you are using, the querying domain, the IP address of the computer that contacted us, date and time of the visit to our website, and the amount of data transmitted.

The personal data collected for the above-mentioned purposes will be used exclusively for the purposes intended or to the extent necessary to safeguard our legitimate business interests. A transfer of your personal data to third parties takes place if and insofar as this is necessary in the context of the above-mentioned purpose. Apart from that, your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties without your consent, unless judicial or regulatory orders oblige us to do so.

Social Media Plugins

We use social media buttons/plugins on our website. These are small buttons that allow you to publish content from our website in social networks under your profile.

If you activate such a button a connection will be established between our website and the social network. In addition to the content in question, the operator of the social network receives further, partially personal, information. This includes, for example, the fact that you are visiting our site.

The integration of social media buttons is carried out using the so-called Shariff solution. This solution prevents you from connecting to a social network just by retrieving a page with a social media button without activating the button. This means that information will not be sent to the social network until you use the button.

We use the following social media plugins:

Blog post comments

The comment function allows you to comment on blog posts. The use of this comment function requires the input of a name whereby you can also choose a pseudonym. Next, you have to enter an e-mail address. It is necessary to provide an e-mail address so that we can pass on any objections to your blog comments and ask you for an opinion. It is not possible for you to use the comment function without this information. When you publish your comment, the e-mail address you provided will be saved but not published. Your name will be published if you did not use a pseudonym.

Legal basis for the processing of data which are transmitted when using the comment function for blog posts, is, if and insofar your consent exists, Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR as well as Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

The data provided by you will be used for the sole purpose of forwarding any complaints about your blog comments and to request your opinion on this. In the case of complaints we can, assuming the complaints are justified, even be prosecuted for the comment under certain circumstances, and therefore have a legitimate interest in knowing the identity of the author.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer needed to achieve the purpose of their collection, for example, when the conversation with you about the complaints has ended and your comments have been clarified.

You have the opportunity to revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data at any time, if and insofar the processing is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. In such a case, however, the comment function cannot be used any further.

Data security

We use technical and organizational security measures to protect incoming and collected personal data, especially against accidental and deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction, or against the attack of unauthorized persons. Our security measures are, in line with technological developments, continuously improved. Our website is encrypted using SSL technology to prevent access by unauthorized third parties.

Your rights

We would like to point out that you can revoke any personal data consent you have granted at any time. Furthermore, you have the right, under legal conditions, to demand information about the stored personal data concerning you, free of charge, at any time. You also have the right, under legal conditions, to request deletion, blocking, and correction of this data. Please contact us in writing: flexis AG, Schockenriedstraße 46, 70565 Stuttgart.
