A natural person is considered to be identifiable, who, directly or indirectly can be identified, in particular by association with an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special features, which expresses the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.

c) Restriction of processing
„Restriction of Processing "is the marking of personal data retained with the aim of limiting its future processing.
„Profiling“ is any kind of automated processing of personal data that consists in using this personal information to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, and in particular to analyze or predict aspects related to job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, whereabouts, or relocation of that natural person.
"Pseudonymization" means the processing of personal data in such a way that personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the help of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that that personal data information is not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
f) The person concerned
”The person concerned" means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller.
g) File system
"File system" means any structured collection of personal data accessible by specific criteria, whether that collection is centralized, decentralized or organized according to functional or geographical considerations.
„Controller“ is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other entity, who decides alone or jointly with others on the purposes and means of processing personal data.

"Receiver" is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other entity to which personal data is disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data under Union or national law in connection with a particular mission are not considered to be beneficiaries.

D-65760 Eschborn (near Frankfurt am Main)
VAT identification number: DE 295 381 120
Registry Court: Local court Frankfurt am Main
Registry Number: HRB 109242
Representative managing director: Mr. Dipl.-Ing. Konstantinos Kotalakidis
We only process personal data that we have received from you as part of our contractual or other business relationship.
In addition, we process personal information that we have legitimately gained from publicly available sources (such as debtor directories, land registers, trade and association registers, press, media) and have permission to process.
Finally, we also work with personal information that we have legitimately received from other third parties (such as Schufa); for example, on the basis of your consent. These are used to execute orders or to fulfill contracts.
Below is an example of some data that we process in cooperation with our customers, suppliers and employees:
- Personal and standard data (name, address, birthday and place, nationality, pension insurance number, bank details, telephone, fax, Mail);
- Credentials and authentication data (ID data, signature sample);
- Business data (documentation and advice logs, payment order, payment transactions).
We process personal data only for the fulfillment of contractual obligations, due to legal requirements, for our own advertising purposes and for the protection of legitimate interests. The lawfulness of the processing is based on the provisions listed under no. 1 (see above), in particular on art. 6 GDPR.
Depending on the nature of the contract, we process personal data as listed below:
a) Based on your consent
(art. 6 paragraph 1 (a) GDPR)
Insofar as you have given us consent to the processing of personal data for specific purposes (for example, disclosure of personal data to tax consultants as processors within the meaning of art. 28 GDPR or to financial and social authorities, etc.; evaluation of customer data for internal marketing purposes, for example, to Schufa), the legality of this processing is based on your consent.
A given consent can be revoked at any time; see art. 7 para. 3 GDPR. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent, which - such as the SCHUFA declaration - were granted to us before the validity of the GDPR, that is before 25 May 2018.
Please note that the revocation only works for the future. Processing that occurred before the revocation is not affected.
a) For the fulfillment of contractual obligations
(art. 6 paragraph 1 (b) GDPR)
The processing of personal data is done, for example
- to carry out any pre-contractual measures;
- to enter into, execute or otherwise fulfill our contracts (leases and sales contracts with GLASSCON customers, contracts for work and services with third parties such as suppliers, etc.);
Further details on the purpose of data processing can be found in the respective contract documents and the terms and conditions.
b) Due to legal requirements, for the protection of vital interests or in the public interest
(art. 6 paragraph 1 (c, d, e) GDPR)
In addition, as GLASSCON we are subject to various legal obligations, which means legal requirements that may also be justified in the public interest:
The processing of personal data may therefore be necessary, for example, to fulfill tax control and reporting obligations, to prevent fraud and money laundering and / or to verify identity and age; such arise among others from the banking act, money laundering act and / or various tax laws.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required even if the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person are to be protected. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor (for example customer) would be injured in our company based in Mergenthalerallee 77, 65760 Eschborn), on one of our exhibition stands, transfer areas of the motorhomes or in our rented seminar facilities and then his data (including name, age, health insurance data or other vital information) would have to be forwarded to a doctor, hospital or other third party.
c) In the context of the balance of interests
(art. 6 paragraph 1 (f) GDPR)
In the end, processing of your personal data can be based on art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail.
An overriding legitimate interest can also be accepted according to the second sentence of recital 47 GDPR if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible.
Therefore, we process your data in addition to the actual fulfillment of the contract for the protection of legitimate interests of us or third parties. Examples are:
- the further development and marketing of GLASSCON products and own services;
- the offered marketing of products or product parts of our contractual partners;
- the legally permissible documentation of business contacts;
- advertising, as long as you have not objected to the use of your data;
- asserting legal claims and defense in legal disputes;
- ensuring the IT security and the IT operations of GLASSCON;
- prevention and investigation of criminal offenses;
- Video surveillance (as permitted by law) is used to collect evidence of crime. They hereby serve the protection of customers and employees as well as the exercise of the house right; building security measures (such as access controls);
- measures to prevent the unauthorized use of GLASSCON products;
- measures for business management and further development of services and products
If necessary, we process and store your personal data at least for the period required by applicable law. The respective legal storage and documentation obligations serve the fulfillment of legal claims; they result from the Commercial Code (HGB), the Tax Code (AO), the Banking Act (KWG) or the Money Laundering Act (GwG).
However, the storage period is also judged by the statutory limitation periods, which, for example, after §§195 ff. of the Civil Code (BGB) can generally be 3 years, but in certain cases up to 30 years.
Longer retention periods are possible as far as operational needs (for example: proper administration of customer, supplier and personal data) or the compliance with official regulations require this.
For example, we at GLASSCON retain most customer data for the duration of the contract and for a period of 11 years after the end of the contract.
This is due to the 10-year limitation period pursuant to §199 paragraph 3 sentence 1 no. 1 and paragraph 4 BGB. For interested parties without subsequent contract conclusion, depending on the intensity of the contract initiation, a retention period of six to 14 months applies; in special cases up to 3 years (limitation of claims for damages due to culpa in contrahendo in accordance with § 311 paragraph 2 BGB i.V.m. § 195 BGB).
Within the company GLASSCON, those entities receive your data, which they need to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations. External processors (within the meaning of article 28 GDPR) employed by us may also receive data for these purposes. These are companies in the categories of credit-related services, IT services, logistics, printing services, telecommunications, debt collection, tax consultancy and sales and marketing.
With regard to the data transfer to recipients outside of GLASSCON, it should first be noted that we are bound to secrecy about all customer-related facts and valuations of which we become aware.
We may only disclose information about you if statutory provisions require it, if you have consented to it or if we are otherwise authorized to do so. Under these conditions, recipients of personal data may be, for example: tax authorities; social funds and authorities; employment agencies; bureaus; Schufa; other public entities and institutions.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, our company homepage uses a transmission method based on the SSL protocol (Secure Sockets Layer) or on a TLS (Transport Layer Security) encryption.
These protocols allow encryption of all traffic between your browser and our servers. This protects your data during transmission against manipulation and unauthorized access by third parties as far as possible.
An encrypted connection is indicated by the browser's address bar changing from "http: //" to "https: //" and by the lock icon in your browser bar. If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us can basically not be read by third parties

The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on divergent legal bases to be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of article 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
