4. Privacy policy
We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise.  Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of this website. The use of the Internet pages of this website is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of  personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line  with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to this website. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise  would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and  purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore,  data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.

As the controller, this website has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based  data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute  protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by  telephone.

1. Definitions
The data protection declaration of this website is based on the terms  used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be  legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first  explain the terminology used.

In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:

a) Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“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.

b) Data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the  processing.

c) Processing
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed  on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation,  structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or  destruction.
d) Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.

e) Profiling
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data  consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or  predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

f) Pseudonymisation
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data  subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical  and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not  attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

h) Processor
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or  other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

i) Recipient
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or  another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third  party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal  data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing  of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the  processing.

j) Third party
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons  who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.

k) Consent
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed  and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or  she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

Any data subject may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer directly with all questions and suggestions concerning data protection.

4. Collection of general data and information
This website collects a series of general data and  information when a data subject or automated system calls up the  website. This general data and information are stored in the server log  files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and  information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, this website does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2)  optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a  cyber-attack. Therefore, this website analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data  protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous  data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal  data provided by a data subject.

5. Registration on our website
The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller with the indication of personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data  subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the  controller, and for his own purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or more processors (e.g. a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the  controller.

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP  address €”assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject date, and time of the registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed offenses. Insofar, the storage of this data is necessary to secure the controller. This data is not  passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to  pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary indication  of personal data, is intended to enable the controller to offer the data subject contents or services that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to change the personal data specified during the registration at any time, or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of  the controller.

The data controller shall, at any time, provide information upon request to each data subject as to what personal data are stored about the data subject. In addition, the data controller shall correct or  erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. The entirety of the controllers employees are available to the data subject in this  respect as contact persons.

6. Contact possibility via the website
The website contains information that enables a quick  electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called  electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the  controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data  transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data  controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third  parties.

7. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data
The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or  other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is  subject to.

If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.

8. Rights of the data subject

a) Right of confirmation
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller  the confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to avail himself of  this right of confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

b) Right of access

d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not  necessary:

An  employee of Drumsigns shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is  complied with immediately.

Where the controller has made personal data public and is  obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical  measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links  to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required. An employees of Drumsigns will arrange the necessary  measures in individual cases.

If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of the processing of personal data stored by the Drumsigns, he or she may at any time contact any  employee of the controller. The employee of Drumsigns will arrange the restriction of the processing.

f) Right to data portability
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which  was provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and  machine-readable format. He or she shall have the right to transmit  those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller  to which the personal data have been provided, as long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR  or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the  performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the  exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

On this website, the controller has integrated components of the enterprise Facebook. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an  online community, which usually allows users to communicate with each  other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a  platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the  Internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows social network users to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller is the Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4  Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

14. Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the  case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing  operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which  processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In  rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.  This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital  information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d  GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden  by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations  are particularly permissible because they have been specifically  mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

15. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of  the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.

16. Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of  that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the  initiation of a contract.

17. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences  of failure to provide such data

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual  provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of  the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The  employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide  the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.

18. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
