also explains how, and for which purpose the information is collected.

to security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data against third party access.

Information about the responsible party (referred to as the “controller” in the GDPR)

The data processing controller on this website is:

GIOMI Deutschland GmbH

Kaiserdamm 13

14057

Telephone: 030 308231200

Email: hallo@giomideutschland.de

The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others
makes decisions as to the purposes of and resources for the processing of personal data (e.g. names,
e-mail addresses, etc.).

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide range of data processing
transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any
consent you have already given us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an informal
notification via e-mail. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that
occurred prior to your revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art.
21 GDPR)

In the event that data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. e or
f GDPR, you have the right to at any time object to the processing of your personal data based on
grounds arising from your unique situation. This also applies to any profiling based on these
provisions. To determine the legal basis, on which any processing of data is based, please consult this
Data Protection Declaration. If you log an objection, we will no longer process your affected personal
data, unless we are in a position to present compelling protection worthy grounds for the processing
of your data, that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or if the purpose of the processing is
the claiming, exercising or defence of legal entitlements (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1
GDPR).

If your personal data is being processed in order to engage in
direct advertising, you have the right to at any time object to the processing of your affected
personal data for the purposes of such advertising. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is
affiliated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer
be used for direct advertising purposes (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 2 GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of
violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory agency, in
particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the
place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any
other administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we
automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to
you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct
transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of
confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator,
this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption programme. You can recognise an encrypted
connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://”
and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryption
is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Encrypted payment transactions on this website

If you are under an obligation to
share your payment information (e.g. account number if you give us the authority to debit your bank
account) with us after you have entered into a fee-based contract with us, this information is
required to process payments.

Payment transactions using common modes of paying
(Visa/MasterCard, debit to your bank account) are processed exclusively via encrypted SSL or TLS
connections. You can recognise an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the
browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the
browser line.

If the communication with us is encrypted, third parties will not be able to read
the payment information you share with us.

Information about, blockage, rectification and eradication of data

Within the scope of
the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand information about your
archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the processing of your
data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified, blocked or eradicated. If you have
questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not
hesitate to contact us at any time at the address provided in section “Information Required by
Law.”

Right to demand processing restrictions

You have the right to demand the imposition
of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is concerned. To do so, you may contact
us at any time at the address provided in section “Information Required by Law.” The right to
demand restriction of processing applies in the following cases:

  • In the event that you
    should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify
    this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to demand that we
    restrict the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is
    conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restriction of the processing
    of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.
  • If we do not need your
    personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entitlements, you have
    the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its
    eradication.
  • If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and
    our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose
    interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal
    data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the
exception of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or
defend legal entitlements or to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for
important public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a member state of the EU.

Rejection of unsolicited e-mails

We herewith object to the use of contact information
published in conjunction with the mandatory information to be provided in section “Information
Required by Law” to send us promotional and information material that we have not expressly
requested. The operators of this website and its pages reserve the express right to take legal action
in the event of the unsolicited sending of promotional information, for instance via SPAM
messages.
