Data Privacy Statement
30Reasons GbR (Berthold Baule und Martin Clemm GbR)
Data Privacy crisp & clear
Please note that data transmitted via the internet (e. g. via email communication) may be subject to security breaches. Complete protection of your data from third-party access is not possible.
The most important topics of the following information condensed:
- Personal Data of users are processed in accordance with applicable data protection law and regulations. This means: only in the event of a legal permission.
- Security measures are taken to protect your data and third-party providers are carefully chosen.
- In order to analyze usage of the website, we use Squarespace Analytics, which stores your visits in anonymous form on the system server of Squarespace. Squarespace is certified for the Privacy-Shield-Agreement and will, according to their own statements, start using European Servers in near future, too.
Revocation of your consent to the processing of your data
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
Right to file complaints with regulatory authorities
If there has been a breach of data protection legislation, the person affected may file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities. The competent regulatory authority for matters related to data protection legislation is the data protection officer of the German state in which our company is headquartered. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data which we process based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from http:// to https:// and the lock icon is displayed in your browser's address bar.
If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion
As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. You can contact us at any time using the address given in our legal notice if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.
Processing of Personal Data
To the extent we collect the respective person’s consent for processing of personal data, this is based on Art. 6 (1)(a) of the EU-General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
If the processing is required in order to protect legitimate interests of us or a third party and the interests, basic liberties and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not preponderate such first-mentioned interests, then Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as legal basis for the processing.
Deletion and Retention of Data
We will process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail. The legality of the data processing processes carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete, your consent for storage revoked or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
Stored data are deleted, as soon as the purpose of processing expires and the deletion is not prohibited by mandatory statutory retention periods. To the extent data of users are not deleted because they are required for other legally permitted purposes, the processing of such data will be restricted, e.g. they are blocked and restricted from use for other purposes. This for example applies to data of users that have to be retained according to trade- or tax law.
According to regulatory requirement, such retention is mandatory for 6 years according to § 257 Abs. 1 HGB/Commercial Code (books of account, fixtures, opening balances, annual balance sheets, business letters, accounting records, etc.) as well as for 10 years according to § 147 Abs. 1 AO (ledger, accounting records, annual reports, accounting records, business letters, taxation relevant documentation, etc.).
We meet organizational, contractual and technical security measures according to the state of the technology, in order to secure compliance with applicable data protection law and to protect data against accidental or fraudulent manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Integral part of these security measures is the encrypted transfer of data between browser and server.
We process stock data (f.e. names, addresses as well as contact data) to meet services (answering requests, transfer of information) in accordance with Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR.
When contacting us (per online form or eMail) the data of users necessary to respond the request and complete it according to Art. 6 (1) (b) are processed.
The following data are collected:
- Information relating to browser type and version
- The operating system of the user
- The Internet-Service-Provider of the user
- The IP-address of the user
- Date and time of the access
- Websites, referring the system of the user to our website
- Websites, accessed by the system of the user via our website
For security purposes, logfile-information (f.e. for investigation of fraudulent acts) are stored for the maximum term of seven days and deleted thereafter. Data that need to be stored for purpose of evidence, will be exempted from such deletion until final clarification of the incident.

Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exception of cookies may cause functional limitations of this online service.
This website uses Squarespace Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Squarespace Ireland Ltd., Le Pole House, Ship Street Great, Dublin 8, Ireland ("Squarespace"). Squarespace Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site.

This website uses functions of Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files which are saved on your computer to make it possible to analyse your use of the website. The data regarding your use of the website generated by these cookies is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Should, however, IP anonymisation be activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be transmitted to the Google server in the USA and shortened there.

Proliferation of Data to Third Parties or Third Party Providers
A proliferation of data to third parties only occurs in accordance with applicable legal requirements. We only proliferate data to third parties, if this is required for the contractual purposes based on Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR or based on permitted interest in an economical and effective business operation according to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
In the event subcontractors are used to provide services, suitable legal precautions and technical and organizational measures are taken in order to protect personal data in accordance with applicable law.
To the extent under this Data Privacy Statement content, tools or other means of providers (hereinafter altogether „Third Party Providers“) are used and their registered office is located in a third party country, a data transfer into such third party countries has to be assumed. Third party countries are deemed countries, where the GDPR is no directly applicable law, namely countries outside EU or the European Economic Area (EEA) respectively. Transfer of data into third party countries occurs when an appropriate data protection level, a consent of the user or a legal permission is given.
Integration of Third Party Services and Content
For this online offer and based on permitted interests (the interest of analysis, optimization and economical operation of our website according to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR), we use content- or service offerings of Third Party Providers in order to integrate their content or services, f.e. like videos and fonts (hereinafter „Contents“).
This always requires recognition of the IP-address by the Third Party Providers, since they could not send Contents to the browser without it. Therefore, the IP-address is mandatory for displaying these Contents. We strive to only use Contents whose providers only use the IP-address for delivering the Contents.
Third Party Providers can also use so-called „Pixel-Tags" (invisible graphics, also called „Web Beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. Based on these Pixel-Tags, information like user traffic on the pages of this website can be analyzed.
