  • register for trade fairs/events via the contact form.

When subscribing to our Newsletter, the e-mail address is requested, which, if you do not agree to further use, will only be used for sending the Newsletter to you.

If the forms contain mandatory fields, these are marked separately in detail.

3. Purposes and legal bases

a) Fulfillment of the contract (Article 6, paragraph 1, letter b of the GDPR)

The collected data is used to answer your inquiries, to process your orders or to provide you with requested access to certain information or offers (sending of newsletters, sending of information material, handling of trade fairs and events).

b) Consent (Article 6, paragraph 1, letter a of the GDPR)

If you have given us your consent to process your personal data, this consent is the legal basis for the processing stated there. This applies in particular to your consent to receive the Newsletter and information on products and events.

You can revoke your given consent at any time with effect for the future by sending an e-mail to datenschutz@human-solutions.com. This also applies to declarations of consent that you issued to us prior to the validity of the GDPR, i.e. before May 25, 2018. The revocation only affects future data processing.

c) Fulfillment of legal obligations (Article 6, paragraph 1, letter c of the GDPR)

We are subject to various legal obligations (e.g. tax laws, the law concerning companies with limited liability, the German Commercial Code), the fulfillment of which may require the processing of your personal data.

d) Balancing of interests (Article 6, paragraph 1, letter f of the GDPR)

We may also use your data on the basis of a balance of interests to protect the legitimate interests of our company. This is done for the purposes of customer contact, in particular for contact by telephone and sending information by post or e-mail. To maintain customer relations, it may be appropriate to store your personal data in order to better respond to your requests, to inform you about our offers, which are useful for your business activities, or to improve our products and services.

You have the right to object at any time (Article 21 GDPR) to the processing of personal data concerning you on the basis of a balance of interests pursuant to Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR for reasons arising from your particular situation. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data, unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or that the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

As far as we process your data in the context of the legal regulations for direct advertizing and you make use of your right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertizing, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.

The objection can be filed form-free via the e-mail address datenschutz@human-solutions.com.
