Privacy Policy

We are delighted that you have shown interest in our company. Data protection is a high priority for the management of Julius Lassalle. The Julius Lassalle website can be used without disclosing personal data; if a data subject wishes to use the special services of our company via our website, however, the processing of personal data might be necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.

The processing of personal data such as name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject shall always comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and be in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Julius Lassalle. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are advised by means of this data protection declaration of the rights to which they are entitled.

As the processing controller, Julius Lassalle has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the utmost protection of personal data processed through this website. Internet-based data transmissions may have security gaps, however, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, data subjects are free to transfer personal data to us by alternative means, e.g., by telephone.

1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of Julius Lassalle is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.

The data protection declaration includes the following terms:

a) Personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, notably with reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b) Data subject

A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for processing.

c) Processing

Processing is any operation or set of operations performed with or without automated means on personal data or personal data sets, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or other form of provision, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

d) Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting its processing in the future. 

e) Profiling

Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data that consists in the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements. 

f) Pseudonymization

Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a manner that personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is stored separately and subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person. 

g) Controller or controller responsible for processing

The controller or controller responsible for processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of processing personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law. 

h) Processor

The processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller. 

i) Recipient

The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to which personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it refers to a third party or not. Public authorities that may possibly receive personal data within the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as a recipient; the processing of this data by the said public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing. 

j) Third party

A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons that is authorized under the direct authority of the controller or processor to process personal data.

k) Consent

Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes in the form of a statement or otherwise clear affirmative action signifying agreement to the processing of their personal data.

2. Name and Address of the controller

For the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), other data protection laws applicable in Member States of the European Union and further provisions related to data protection, the controller is:

Julius Lassalle
Zillestraße 67
10585 Berlin
Deutschland

Phone: +49 30-30815370
Mail: julius@lassalle.berlin
Website: www.lassalle.berlin

3. Cookies

The Julius Lassalle website uses cookies. Cookies are text files stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. A great many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which websites and servers are assigned to the specific Internet browser that stored the cookie. This allows visited websites and servers to distinguish the data subject’s individual browser from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. The unique cookie ID makes it possible to recognize and identify a specific Internet browser.

The use of cookies allows Julius Lassalle to provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

With the user in mind, we employ cookies to optimize information and offers on our website. Cookies allow us, as mentioned earlier, to recognize our website users. The idea is to make it easier to use our website. Users of a website that employs cookies, for example, do not have to enter their access details each time they visit the website, since this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in an online shop. The online shop remembers the articles a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The data subject may at any time prevent cookie settings by our website with the relevant adjustment of the Internet browser used, and thus permanently block cookie settings. Existing cookie settings may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software program. This is possible in all standard Internet browsers. Should the data subject deactivate the cookie settings in the Internet browser used, some functions on our website may be affected and not entirely usable.

4. Collection of general data and information

The Julius Lassalle website collects general data and information each time a data subject or automated system visits the website. This general data and information is stored in the server log files. Collected data could be (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) sub-websites, (5) date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information useful in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

Julius Lassalle does not draw conclusions about the data subject when using this general data and information. On the contrary, the information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content and advertisement of our website, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the necessary information for criminal prosecution in the case of a cyber attack. In other words, Julius Lassalle analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically in order to enhance data protection and data security in our company and ensure a maximum level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files is stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

5. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the processing controller is subject.

If the storage purpose is not applicable or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or other competent legislator expires, personal data is routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.

6. Rights of the data subject

a) Right of confirmation

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her is being processed. If a data subject wishes to avail of this right of confirmation, he or she may contact an employee of the controller at any time.

b) Right of access

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain information from the controller free of charge at any time concerning his or her stored personal data and a copy of this information. Furthermore, the European directives and regulations grant the data subject access to the following information:

  • the processing purpose;
  • the personal data categories concerned;
  • the recipients or recipient categories to whom the personal data has been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organizations;
  • where possible, the envisaged period of personal data storage or, if this is not possible, the criteria determining that period;
  • the existence of the right to request from the controller rectification or erasure of personal data, or the restriction of processing personal data concerning the data subject, or to object to such processing;
  • the existence of the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
  • where personal data is not collected from the data subject: any available information as to their source;
  • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.

The data subject shall furthermore have a right to obtain information as to whether personal data has been transferred to a third country or an international organisation. Where this is the case, the data subject shall have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer.

If a data subject wishes to avail of this right of access, he or she may contact an employee of the controller at any time.

c) Right of rectification

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of a supplementary statement.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may contact an employee of the controller at any time.

d) Right to erase (right to be forgotten)

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies and processing is unnecessary: 

  • Personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
  • The data subject withdraws consent to the processing according to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, and there is no other legal ground for the processing.
  • The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.
  • The personal data was processed illegally.
  • Personal data must be erased in compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
  • The personal data was collected in relation to the provision of information society services referred to in Article 8(1) of the GDPR.

If one of the aforementioned reasons applies and a data subject requests the erasure of personal data stored by Julius Lassalle, he or she may contact an employee of the controller at any time. The Julius Lassalle  employee shall ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.

Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to or copy or replication of this personal data, provided processing is not required. The employee of Julius Lassalle will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.

e) Right of restriction of processing

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the following conditions applies:

  • The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
  • The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data, requesting instead the restricted use of personal data.
  • The controller no longer needs personal data for processing purposes, but the data subject requires it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
  • The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending verification of whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

If one of the aforementioned conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request a restriction on the processing of personal data stored by Julius Lassalle, he or she may contact an employee of the controller at any time. The Julius Lassalle employee will arrange restriction of the processing. 

f) Right of data portability

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to receive his or her personal data, which was provided to a controller by the data subject, in a structured, standard, machine-readable format. He or she shall furthermore have the right to transmit that data to another controller without interference by the controller to whom the personal data was originally provided, as long as processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures, and provided processing is not required for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another where technically feasible and the rights and freedoms of others are not adversely affected.

In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact an employee of the subject: RESOUL GmbH.

g) Right to object

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to object at any time to the processing of their personal data on grounds related to their particular situation, based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

In the event of an objection, Julius Lassalle shall no longer process personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If Julius Lassalle processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to Julius Lassalle processing for direct marketing purposes, Julius Lassalle will no longer process personal data for this purpose.

In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds related to their particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data by Julius Lassalle for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact any Julius Lassalle employee. In addition, the data subject is free in the context of using information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise his or her right to object by automated means involving technical specifications.

h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has a legal effect on him or her, or similarly significantly affects him or her, as long as the decision (1) is not necessary for entry into or fulfillment of a contract between the data subject and a controller, or (2) is not authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on the data subject’s explicit consent.

If the decision (1) is necessary for entry into or fulfillment of a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is based on the data subject’s explicit consent, Julius Lassalle shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may contact a Julius Lassalle employee at any time.

i) Right to withdraw data protection consent

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to the processing of his or her personal data at any time. 

If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw consent, he or she may contact a Julius Lassalle employee at any time.

7. Privacy policy provisions for the use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

The processing controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) into this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection and analysis of data on the behavior of website visitors. A web analysis service includes the collection of data on the website from which the data subject accessed a website (so-called referrers), the website sub-pages that were accessed or how often and how long a sub-page was visited. Web analysis is primarily used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

The processing controller uses the add-on “_gat._anonymizelp” for the web analysis via Google Analytics. This add-on allows Google to abbreviate and anonymize the IP address of the data subject’s Internet connection if our website is accessed by a Member State of the European Union or another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse visitor traffic to our website. Among other things, Google uses the collected data and information to analyse our website, to compile online reports that show us the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. Cookies have already been defined above. Placing cookies allows Google to analyse our website traffic. Each time a person accesses an individual page of this website, which is operated by the processing controller and into which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system is automatically activated by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Google obtains personal data such as the data subject’s IP address, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently to enable commission statements.

Cookies allow us to store personal data such as time of access, location from which access originated and frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Each time the data subject visits our website their personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may under certain circumstances pass on this personal data collected via technical procedures to a third party.

The data subject is free at all times to prevent cookie placement by our website, as illustrated earlier, via the relevant setting of the Internet browser used and thus to contradict cookie placement permanently. This adjustment of the Internet browser would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already placed by Google Analytics can always be deleted via the Internet browser or other software program.

The data subject can furthermore object to and prevent the collection of personal data generated by Google Analytics referring to the use of this website and the processing of the data by Google. For this purpose, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on from the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data or information on website visits may be transferred to Google Analytics. Google sees the installation of the browser add-on as objection. Should the data subject’s information technology system be deleted, formatted or newly installed at a later date, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the data subject or other person attached to his or her area of control uninstalls or deactivates the browser add-on, the browser add-on can be reinstalled or reactivated.  

Further information on Google’s current privacy policy can be accessed under the following links: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

8. Data protection provisions about the application and use of LinkedIn

The controller has integrated components of the LinkedIn Corporation on this website. LinkedIn is a web-based social network that enables users with existing business contacts to connect and to make new business contacts. Over 400 million registered people in more than 200 countries use LinkedIn. Thus, LinkedIn is currently the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most visited websites in the world.

The operating company of LinkedIn is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court Mountain View, CA 94043, UNITED STATES. For privacy matters outside of the UNITED STATES LinkedIn Ireland, Privacy Policy Issues, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, is responsible.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to the download of a display of the corresponding LinkedIn component of LinkedIn. Further information about the LinkedIn plug-in may be accessed under https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. During the course of this technical procedure, LinkedIn gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on LinkedIn, LinkedIn detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-page of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the LinkedIn component and associated with the respective LinkedIn account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the LinkedIn buttons integrated on our website, then LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.

LinkedIn receives information via the LinkedIn component that the data subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is logged in at LinkedIn at the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the LinkedIn button or not. If such a transmission of information to LinkedIn is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their LinkedIn account before a call-up to our website is made.

LinkedIn provides under https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls the possibility to unsubscribe from e-mail messages, SMS messages and targeted ads, as well as the ability to manage ad settings. LinkedIn also uses affiliates such as Eire, Google Analytics, BlueKai, DoubleClick, Nielsen, Comscore, Eloqua, and Lotame. The setting of such cookies may be denied under https://www.linkedin.com/legal/cookie-policy. The applicable privacy policy for LinkedIn is available under https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy. The LinkedIn Cookie Policy is available under https://www.linkedin.com/legal/cookie-policy.

9. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service, processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations essential to carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation for which processing personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to sustain an injury in our company and their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations that are not covered by any of the above-mentioned legal grounds, when processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. We are allowed these processing operations notably because of their  specific mention by the European legislator. The legislator held the view that if the data subject is a client of the controller, a legitimate interest could be assumed (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

10. Legitimate interests pursued by the controller or a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

11. Period for which personal data will be stored

The criteria used to determine the period of storage for personal data is the respective statutory retention period. When this period expires, the respective data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for contract fulfillment or contract initiation.

12. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; requirement necessary to enter into a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data 

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g., tax regulations) or can result from contractual provisions (e.g., information on the contractual partner). In order to conclude a contract it may occasionally be necessary for the data subject to provide us with personal data, which we are subsequently obliged to process. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. Failure to provide personal data could result in non-conclusion of the contract with the data subject. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee informs the data subject as to whether the provision of personal data is required by law or by contract or is necessary for contract conclusion, whether there is an obligation to provide personal data and the possible consequences of non-provision of personal data.

13. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.This privacy policy was drawn up by the Privacy Policy Generator of the External Data Protection Officers in cooperation with the Media Law Lawyers from WBS-LAW.
