Purpose of data processing

We process your contact data, business data and any data that is relevant for process handling, for purposes of contract initiation and performance based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

Recipients or categories of recipients

  • Internal departments or companies of the AKG Group where this data is needed there as part of regular completion of tasks,

  • External contractors and
  • Service providers that are contracted for orderly handling of work according to § 62 GDPR (2018)

Where access to personal data cannot be ruled out, we use service providers in fulfilling service for special areas that are separately bound to confidentiality and data protection. Data is only shared with public authorities in case of overriding legal provisions.

Period for storage and deletion of data

Your data is stored for the period of contract fulfilment. After the contractual relationship ends, we are obligated to store taxation-relevant documents for 10 years after the end of the year and the end of the calendar year. The data is then deleted. Data that is not subject to legal provisions concerning the storage period is deleted when the purpose of data processing no longer exists.

Your right to information, correction, deletion, object and data portability

You can exercise your right to information, correction and deletion of data at any time. Just contact us through any of the channels described above. If you want your data deleted but we are still under legal obligation to store it, access to your data will be restricted (blocked). The same applies when you object.  You can exercise your right to data portability provided that we and the recipient have the requisite technical capabilities.

Right to lodge a complaint

You can lodge a complaint to the data protection supervisory authorities at any time. You can find the supervisory authorities responsible for us here.

Obligation to provide information
