PRIVACY POLICY

1. Concept of personal data

In the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), personal data are defined as follows:

Any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person. This includes, for example, your civil name, address, telephone number or date of birth.

Collection and processing of personal data

As a rule, you can visit the pages of Numbat GmbH without us requiring any personal data from you.

Personal data is only collected by us if you provide it to us voluntarily, for example as part of a registration process. We do not collect any personal data via our website without your consent.

By visiting this website, information about the access (e.g. date, time, pages viewed) may be stored in log files of the web server. They are evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes without any obvious inference to the IP address of a user.

This data does not belong to personal data, but is anonymized.

Legal basis for the collection and processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain your consent for processing personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

When processing your personal data to fulfill a contract between you and Numbat GmbH, Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 (1) f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Use and disclosure of personal data and purpose limitation

All personal data collected within the scope of Numbat GmbH will be collected, processed and used in accordance with the applicable regulations for the protection of personal data only for the purpose of contract execution and to protect our own legitimate business interests.

We guarantee the protection of personal data such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail for the data entered by you. As a matter of principle, your data will not be transferred to third parties outside Numbat GmbH, unless we are legally obliged to do so or the transfer of data is necessary for the performance of the contractual relationship or you have previously given your express consent to the transfer of your data. External service providers and partner companies will receive your data only to the extent necessary to process your request. In these cases, however, the scope of the transmitted data is limited to the necessary minimum. Insofar as our service providers come into contact with your personal data, we ensure that they comply with the provisions of data protection laws in the same way. Please also refer to the respective data protection notices of the service providers.

Data transfer to external service providers (order processors)

Your data will only be passed on to service partners if they act on our behalf and support Numbat GmbH in the provision of its services.

Any processing of your personal data by commissioned service providers is carried out within the scope of commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR. The service providers only receive access to such personal information that is necessary for the performance of the respective activity.

2. Links

Our company website contains references to other Internet sites (links).

Numbat GmbH has no influence on the content of the linked pages. These were carefully checked before the links were activated. Nevertheless, it cannot be ruled out that the operators of the respective sites have made changes to the content that violate applicable law. Numbat GmbH distances itself from such content.

By activating the link, you leave the information offered by Numbat GmbH. Different regulations may therefore apply to the offers of third parties, particularly with regard to data protection.

Our website contains links to Facebook, Xing, LinkedIn, Twitter, Vimeo and YouTube.

After clicking on the embedded icons/graphics, you will be redirected to the page of the respective provider, i.e. only then will user information be transferred to the provider in question. For information on how your personal data is handled when using this website, please refer to the respective provider’s privacy policy.

3. Contact Forms

You have the option of contacting us via contact forms on the website. We will, of course, use the personal data transmitted to us in this way exclusively for the purpose for which you provide it to us.

Insofar as we request input via our contact form that is not required for contacting us, we have always marked this as optional. This information is used to specify your request and to improve the processing of your request. Any communication of this information is expressly on a voluntary basis and with your consent. Insofar as this involves information on communication channels (for example, telephone number or e-mail address), you also consent to us contacting you via this communication channel, if necessary, in order to respond to your request.

You can, of course, revoke this consent at any time for the future. To do so, please contact info@numbat.energy.

In the future, our website will also offer the option of registering for a free newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, the data from the input mask will be transmitted to us.

This concerns e-mail address, company name, title, first name, last name and the selected topics.

In addition, the following data is collected during registration:

4. Applications

We collect and process personal data from applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. The processing may also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends us the relevant application documents electronically, for example by e-mail. We will, of course, use your data exclusively for processing your application and will not pass them on to third parties outside the Numbat GmbH group of companies.

If we conclude an employment contract with you as an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the data controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision, unless you have expressly given us your consent to store your data for a longer period of time or no other legitimate interests of the data controller oppose deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

You may request confirmation from us as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed by us. If we have processed personal data relating to you, you have further rights of access set out in Article 15 GDPR.

Right to rectification

If the data we have collected from you is incorrect or incomplete, you may request us to correct the data without undue delay in accordance with Article 16 of the GDPR.

After restriction, your data may only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a Member State. We will inform you before the restriction is lifted.

Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”)

You may, if one of the grounds in Article 17(1) GDPR applies, demand that we delete the personal data relating to you without delay, unless there is an exception to this obligation to delete in accordance with Article 17(3) GDPR.

The right to erasure does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary

(1) for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;

(2) for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;

(3) for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) of the GDPR;

(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes, or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) GDPR, insofar as the right referred to in section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing; or

(5) for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.

You also have the right to be informed about these recipients.

Right to data portability

Right of objection

You have the right to object at any time to Numbat GmbH to the processing of personal data concerning you pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law.

You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

Right to complain to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, workplace or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.
