Name and address of the person in charge
Thank you for your interest in our company Merida & Centurion Germany GmbH (hereinafter referred to as "MCG"). Data
protection has a particularly high priority for the management of MCG.
The responsible authority in the sense of the data protection laws is:
MERIDA & CENTURION Germany GmbH
71106 Magstadt, GERMANY
Mr. Wolfgang Renner
Mr. Gerd Klose
The processing of personal data, such as contact data in the form of a data subject's name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number, shall always be in line with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable. By means of this data
protection declaration, we 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 in-formed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
Privacy information for consumers and customers
For the purpose of pre-contractual measures and/or order fulfilment or service provision, we process personal data such as address and contact data, information on conversations held, your requirements, offers and other information that we receive from you. In the case of B2B customers, we also process information, in particular, contact details of our contact per-sons. For the purpose of payment processing, we process, if required, data on your bank details. If external partners are involved in the provision of services or fulfilment of orders, the information necessary for the provision of their services may be passed on to them. IT systems such as ERP systems and financial account-ing software are used to process the information. Service providers have access to these systems for maintenance purposes. In such cases, we agree on the necessary contracts for order processing. Supplementary data protection information can be found in the other chapters of this data protection declaration.
Legal basis for processing personal data
For processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose, Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for our company. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, for example with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in connection with inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example if a visitor received an injury in our premises and his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party as a result. In this case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations, which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases, are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary for the protection of a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not prevailing. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because the
European legislators specifically mentioned them. In this re-spect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person in charge (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
Purposes of data processing by the person in charge and third parties
- you have given your consent to this,
- the processing is necessary for the execution of a contract with you,
- the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation,
- the processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests, and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data.
Transfer of data to third countries
We do not transfer personal data to countries outside the EU.
Deletion or blocking of the data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. Therefore, we only store your personal data for as long as it is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Legal or contractual requirements to provide the personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that we must subsequently process. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if we con-clude a contract with him or her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the
contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data, the data subject must contact us. We will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what the
consequences of not providing personal data would be.
Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
