Privacy Policy

Welcome to our website and thank you for your interest in our company. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We process your data in accordance with applicable personal data protection legislation, in particular the GDPR and our country-specific implementation laws, which provide comprehensive information about the processing of your personal data by INTER CONTROL Hermann Köhler Elektrik GmbH & Co. KG and your rights.

Personal data is any information that makes it possible to identify a natural person. This includes, in particular, your name, date of birth, address, telephone number, email address and IP address. Anonymous data is available if no personal reference to the individual/user can be made.

Your rights as a data subject 

We would first like to notify you of your rights as a data subject. These rights are set out in Articles 15 - 22 GDPR, and include:  

  • The right of access (Art. 15 GDPR), 
  • The right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR), 
  • The right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR), 
  • The right to object to data processing (Art. 21 GDPR),
  • The right to erasure / right to be forgotten (Art. 17 GDPR), 
  • The right to restriction of data processing (Art. 18 GDPR).

To exercise these rights, please contact: datenschutz.ic@intercontrol.de. The same applies if you have any questions regarding data processing in our company or when you withdraw your consent. You also have a right of appeal to the relevant data protection supervisory authority.

Right to object  

Please note the following with respect to your right to object:  

When we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object to this data processing at any time without providing the reasons for such objection.

This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with direct marketing. 

If you object to the processing for direct marketing, we will no longer process your personal data for such purposes. The objection is free of charge and can be made informally, where appropriate to: datenschutz.ic@intercontrol.de.

Should we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you may object to such processing at any time for reasons that arise from your specific situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We will then cease to process your personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing such information that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is intended to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Purposes and legal bases of data processing

The processing of your personal data complies with the provisions of the GDPR and all other applicable data protection regulations. Legal bases for data processing arise in particular from Art. 6 GDPR.

We use your data to initiate business, to fulfil contractual and legal obligations, to conduct the contractual relationship, to offer products and services and to consolidate customer relationships.

Your consent also constitutes a data protection regulation. In this respect, we will inform you of the purposes of data processing and the right to withdraw your consent. If the consent also relates to the processing of special categories of personal data, we will explicitly notify you in the consent process.

Data transfers / Disclosure to third parties

We will only transmit your data to third parties within the scope of given statutory provisions or based on consent. In all other cases, information will not be transferred to third parties unless we are obliged to do so owing to mandatory legal regulations (disclosure to external bodies, including the supervisory authorities or law enforcement authorities). 

Data recipients / categories of recipients

In our organisation, we ensure that only individuals who are required to process the relevant data to fulfil their contractual and legal obligations are authorised to handle personal data.

In many cases, service providers assist our specialist departments to fulfil their tasks. The necessary data protection contract has been concluded with all service providers.

Transfers of personal data to third countries

A transfer of data to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) shall only take place if required by law or if you have provided your consent for such a transfer.

Period of data storage

We store your data for as long as such is required for the relevant processing purposes. Please note that numerous retention statutory periods require that data must be stored for a specific period of time. This relates in particular to retention obligations for commercial or fiscal purposes (e.g. commercial code, tax code, etc.). The data will be routinely deleted after use unless a further period of retention is required.

We may also retain data if you have given us your permission to do so, or in the event of any legal disputes and we use the evidence within the statutory limitation period, which may be up to 30 years; the standard limitation period is 3 years.

Secure transfer of data

We implement the appropriate technical and organisational security measures to ensure the optimal protection of the data stored by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. The security levels are continuously reviewed in collaboration with security experts and adapted to new security standards.

The data exchange to and from our website is encrypted. We provide https as a transfer protocol for our website, and always use the current encryption protocols. In addition, we offer our users content encryption in our contact forms and applications. We alone can decrypt this data. It is also possible to use alternative communication channels (e.g. surface mail).

Obligation to provide data

A range of personal data is required to establish, implement and terminate the obligation and the fulfilment of the relevant contractual and legal obligations. The same applies to the use of our website and the various functions we provide.

We have summarised the relevant details in the above point. In some cases, legal regulations require data to be collected or made available. Please note that it will not be possible to process your request or execute the underlying contractual obligation without this information.

Data categories, sources and origin of data

The data we process is defined by the relevant context: it depends on whether, for example, you place an order online, enter a request on our contact form or if you want to send us an application or submit a complaint.

Please note that we may also provide information at specific points for specific processing situations separately where appropriate, e.g. when uploading application documents or when making a contact request.

Automated decisions in individual cases

We do not use purely automated processing to make decisions.
