General Information

The term personal data is defined in the article 4 no. 1 of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). According to it, personal data is all the information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, your real name, your address, your telephone number or your birthdate.

Unless described otherwise in the following sections, principally, no personal data is collected, processed or used upon using our websites.  

 

Legal basis for the processing of the personal data

Provided we obtain your consent for the processing of personal data, Article 6 section 1 lit. a of (GDPR) acts as the legal basis.

In case the processing of your personal data is required to fulfil a contract between you and HOPPECKE, the Article 6 section 1 lit. b of GDPR acts as the legal basis. This also applies to processing procedures that are required to execute the pre-contractual actions.

Provided, processing of your personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation that governs HOPPECKE, Article 6 section 1 lit. c of GDPR acts as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the concerned person or another natural person make the processing of personal data necessary, the Article 6 section 1 lit. d of GDPR acts as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of HOPPECKE or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms do not outweigh the former interest, then the Article 6 section 1 lit. f of GDPR acts as the legal basis for the processing. 

 

Data deletion and duration of storage

Your personal data is deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage is inapplicable. Data can furthermore be stored if it was stipulated by the European or national legislative body in regulations, laws or other specifications of the union to which the responsible party is liable. The data is also blocked or deleted if a storage term prescribed by the specified standards expires, unless there is a necessity to continue storing the data to conclude or fulfil a contract.
