Privacy Policy

 

Data protection 

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of Wallis GmbH. The use of the Internet pages of the Wallis GmbH (hereinafter also referred to as "we") is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services provided by our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of 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 German Data Protection Regulation (Datenschutz-Grundverordnung - DS-GVO), and in accordance with the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz - BDSG). By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration. 

As the controller, the Wallis GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always be subject to security vulnerabilities, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

6. pseudonymisation 

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way 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. 

 

7. controller or person responsible for processing 

The controller or person responsible for 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.

10. third party 

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

(e.g. for the performance of services, for the fulfilment of contracts or on the basis of consent given by you).

VI. Disclosure of data to third parties and third-party providers 

We will not disclose your personal data to third parties unless you consent to the disclosure, there is a legal obligation to disclose it, it is for the performance of a contract or we can invoke legitimate interests in the economic and effective operation of our business with regard to such disclosure. 

 

VII. Duration of processing and storage of personal data 

We process and store your personal data as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed, in particular as long as it is necessary for the fulfilment of our contractual and legal obligations. It should be noted that the business relationship may be a continuing obligation that is intended to last for several years. 

In the case of data storage for the fulfilment of legal obligations, the following deadlines apply in particular:

If you have applied to us, we will store your personal data for as long as this is necessary for the decision on your application. Insofar as an employment relationship between you and us does not come about, we may also continue to store the personal data insofar as this is necessary for the defence against possible legal claims. In principle, the application documents are deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision, unless longer storage is necessary (e.g. because an employment relationship has come about or in the event of legal disputes).

You have the following rights against us:

IX. Use of cookies 

Cookies are set on our website. Cookies are data packets that are exchanged between the server of the Wallis GmbH website and the visitor's browser. These are stored by the respective devices used (PC, notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when visiting the website. Information is stored in the cookies that arises in each case in connection with the specific end device used.  

Some cookies are used to make our website and our services as a whole more user-friendly, effective and secure - for example, to speed up navigation on our site. Cookies are also used to protect access to areas that are not generally accessible. The legal basis for the use of these cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. 

Among other things, we use so-called "session cookies". Session cookies are temporary cookie files that are deleted as soon as you leave the website or expire automatically if you have been inactive for more than 30 minutes, i.e. have not done anything on our website. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit to our website.  

 

You have several options to block the use of cookies. In the Content Banner and in your browser settings, you can choose not to allow cookies, to allow cookies to be set only by trusted websites, or to accept cookies only from websites that are actually currently being visited. If you block cookies, you may not be able to access certain areas of this website. However, you can of course use the basic information on our website without using cookies.

X. Use of third-party tools and social media plug-ins  

We would like to point out that personal data may be processed in the USA when using tracking services (Google Analytics, Optimizely and Google Retargeting) and social networks (LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube). In the opinion of the European Court of Justice, however, there is no level of protection in the USA that is essentially equivalent to the GDPR. In addition, the legal protection options guaranteed to EU citizens by the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union are not available to the same extent in the USA. This concerns in particular legal protection possibilities against the processing of personal data. There is a risk that your data may be processed by US authorities, for control and monitoring purposes, without you being granted redress possibilities. For this reason, the transfer of your personal data to the USA will only take place on the basis of your consent to the transfer of your personal data to a third country in accordance with Art. 49 (1) a) DSGVO. 

 

1. google analytics 

We use the website analysis service Google Analytics on our website, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001 ("Google"). The legal basis for the use of the analysis tool is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. a DS-GVO. 

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. Cookies help us to determine the frequency of use and the number of users of our website, as well as to make our offers as comfortable and efficient as possible for you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for Wallis GmbH and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. In doing so, pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. The information generated by the cookies about your use of our website will be shortened due to the activation of IP anonymisation on our website, so that it is no longer possible to draw conclusions about your location. Google will not associate the stored part of your IP address with any other data held by Google. 

 

2. google retargeting 

 

In addition, this website uses the retargeting service "Google Remarketing".  

Retargeting is interest-based advertising. Visitors to a website are marked and then addressed again on other websites with targeted advertising. Google uses stored cookies based on a user's previous website visits for this purpose. 

You can disable the use of cookies for remarketing by visiting the Google advertising disable page. 

 

It is also possible to use our offers without cookies. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. You can also delete cookies from your PC's hard drive at any time. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. 

 

3. data protection provisions on the use and application of YouTube 

Wallis GmbH has integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the internet portal. 

The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. 

Each time you call up one of the individual pages of our website on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the internet browser on your information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. As part of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google receive information about which specific subpage of our website you are visiting. 

If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognises which specific subpage of our website you are visiting when you call up a subpage that contains a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to your YouTube account. 

YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that you have visited our website if you are logged into YouTube at the same time as calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether a YouTube video is clicked on or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her YouTube account before accessing our website. 

The privacy policy published by YouTube, which can be accessed at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google. 

The legal basis for data processing is your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

 

XI. Corporate presences in social media 

We operate a company presence in the following social networks: 

·       LinkedIN 

·       Twitter 

·       Xing 

 

in order to be able to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there (hereinafter also jointly: "visitors") and to inform them about our projects and services. 

We cannot trace which user data the social networks collect. We have no influence on the data processing that takes place for this purpose, cannot prevent it and also do not gain access to the underlying data. We also do not have full access to your profile data. We can only see the public information of your profile. You decide on the specific public information in each case in your settings in the respective social network. 

We only receive anonymous statistics from the social networks. We use these statistics, from which we cannot draw any conclusions about individual users, to constantly improve our online offer in the social networks and to better respond to the interests of visitors. We cannot link the statistical data with the profile data of our visitors. The legal basis for the use of the statistical data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. 

We receive your personal data via the social networks if you actively communicate this to us via a personal message. We use your data (e.g. first name, last name, user name, e-mail address) to respond to your request. Your data will be stored until this purpose is fulfilled. The legal basis for processing in the case of an active approach by you is your consent in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. If your message is in connection with a (pre)contractual relationship with us, the legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) 

DSGVO. 

In the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. This is because only they have access to the complete information and data of the users. 

Insofar as we receive personal data from you via a social network, this is processed under joint responsibility with the respective social network. 

We would like to point out that personal data may be processed in the USA when using the social networks. However, according to the European Court of Justice, there is no level of protection in the USA that is essentially equivalent to the GDPR. In addition, the legal protection possibilities guaranteed to EU citizens by the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union are not available to the same extent in the USA. This concerns in particular legal protection possibilities against the processing of personal data. There is a risk that your data may be processed by US authorities, for control and monitoring purposes, without you being granted redress possibilities. For this reason, the transfer of your personal data to the USA will only take place on the basis of your consent to the transfer of your personal data to a third country in accordance with Art. 49 (1) a) DSGVO.
