Privacy protection principles

We conceive of privacy protection as a sign of customer-oriented quality. As such, we ensure to the best of our ability the greatest possible protection of personal data. A.S. CRÉATION TAPETEN AG, Südstraße 47, D-51645 Gummersbach collects and uses your personal data exclusively in accordance with the provisions of General Data Protection Regulation. Below we inform you of the nature, extent and purposes of the gathering and use of personal data

 

1. Your rights and contact option

As a concerned party, you have the following rights:


Please contact the following if you have questions about the collection, processing or use of your personal data, to request information or for correction, blocking or deletion of data as well as for revocation of any given consent or objection to a particular use of data:

Data protection officer
Südstraße 47, 51645 Gummersbach, Germany
datenschutz@as-creation.de

 

Right of objection

If we process personal data as explained above in order to preserve our interests, which are largely legitimate in the context of weighing our interests, you can object to this processing with immediate future effect. If the data is processed for the purposes of direct marketing, you can exercise this right at any time as described above. If the processing is occurring for other purposes, you only have a right of objection if reasons exist that arise from your particular situation.

After exercising your right of objection, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

This does not apply if the processing occurs for direct marketing purposes. Then we will not process your personal data for this purpose.


2. Access data and hosting

You can visit our website without providing any personal information. Every time a website is accessed, the web server only automatically saves a so-called server log file that, for example, contains the name of the requested file, your IP address, date and time of access, amount of data transmitted and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the access.

This access data will only be analysed for the purposes of ensuring a fault-free operation of the site and improving our services. Pursuant to article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR [General Data Protection Regulation], this serves to preserve our interests in correctly representing our offer, which is largely legitimate in the context of weighing our interests. Any access data will be deleted no later than seven days after the end of your site visit.


3. Data collection and use

We collect personal data when you contact us (e.g. via a contact form or email). Mandatory fields are marked as such, since in these cases we need the data to process your enquiry. You cannot send the contact form without providing this information. Which data is to be collected is evident from the respective entry forms. Pursuant to article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b GDPR, we use the data provided by you to process your enquiries. After completion of the contract, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after any tax and commercial retention periods have elapsed, unless you have expressly consented to a further use of your data or we are entitled to continue to use the data, which is legally permitted and for which we inform you in this declaration.

Only your e-mail address is required for sending the newsletter. If you do not confirm your subscription within 7 days, your data will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month.

4.2 To prove the time and scope of the subscription to the newsletter (as well as any unsubscription), we store the following data by setting a cookie:
