DATA PROTECTION STATEMENT

A use of the website www.lobsterskills.com is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to use a service on my website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to lobsterskills. With this data protection declaration I would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by me. Furthermore, data subjects will be informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

As the person responsible for processing, I have implemented technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to me by alternative means, for example by telephone.

1. TERMS

This data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator for directives and regulations when adopting the basic data protection regulation (DS-GMO). This privacy statement should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for my customers and business partners. In order to ensure this, I would like to explain the terms used in advance.

I use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:

A) PERSONAL DATA
Personal data are all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). Identifiable is a natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special characteristics that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

(B) DATA SUBJECT
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

C) PROCESSING
Processing means any operation or series of operations carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures in relation to personal data, such as the collection, collection, organisation, sorting, storage, adaptation or alteration, reading, retrieval, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, erasure or destruction.

D) RESTRICTION OF PROCESSING
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.

E) PROFILING
Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data consisting in the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the performance of work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or relocation of that natural person.

F) PSEUDONYMISATION
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data are not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.

(G) THE PERSON RESPONSIBLE OR THE PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR PROCESSING
The data controller or controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body which alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for his appointment may be laid down in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States.

(H) CONTRACT PROCESSORS
Processor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the data controller.

I) RECIPIENT
Recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to which personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, authorities which may receive personal data under Union law or the law of the Member States within the framework of a particular investigation mandate shall not be regarded as recipients.

J) THIRD PARTY
A third party is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body other than the data subject, the data processor, the data processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the data processor or the data processor.

K) CONSENT
Consent shall mean any informed and unequivocal expression of will voluntarily given by the data subject in the particular case in the form of a declaration or other clear affirmative act by which the data subject indicates his or her consent to the processing of personal data concerning him or her.

2. NAME AND ADDRESS OF THE PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR PROCESSING

3. COOKIES

The website www.lobsterskills.com uses cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified by its unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, lobsterskills.com can provide users with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without cookies.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on my website can be optimized for the user. Cookies enable me, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of my website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use my website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to enter access data each time he visits the website because 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 basket in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping basket via a cookie.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by my website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of my website may be fully usable.

4. GENERAL DATA AND INFORMATION ENCOUNTER

The website www.lobsterskills.com collects a series of general data and information each time a person or an automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. It is possible to record (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the Internet page from which an accessing system reaches this Internet page (so-called referrer), (4) the subwebsites which are accessed via an accessing system on this Internet page, (5) the date and time of access to the Website, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service providers of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on the information technology systems.

When using this general data and information www.lobsterskills.com does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of the website, (2) optimize the contents of the website and its advertising, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of the information technology systems and technology of the website, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.

5. CONTACT OPPORTUNITY ON THE INTERNET SITE

Due to legal regulations, the website www.lobsterskills.com contains information that enables me to be contacted quickly by e-mail, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a person concerned contacts me by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned will be stored automatically. Such personal data voluntarily provided by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.

6. ROUTINARY CLEARING AND BARRING OF PERSONALLY RELATED DATA

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the time necessary to achieve the data retention purpose or to the extent provided for by the European regulator or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or another competent legislator expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

7. RIGHTS OF THE PERSON CONCERNED

A) RIGHT OF CONFIRMATION
Every data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to require the controller to confirm whether personal data concerning him/her are being processed.

Furthermore, the data subject has a right of access to information as to whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject also has the right to obtain information on the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer.

If a person concerned wishes to make use of this right of information, he can contact me at any time.

C) RIGHT TO CORRECTION
Any person data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to request the immediate correction of inaccurate personal data concerning him/her. Furthermore, taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration.

If a person concerned wishes to make use of this right of correction, he can contact me at any time.

D) RIGHT TO CANCELLATION (RIGHT TO BE FORGOTTEN)
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to require the data controller to request that the personal data concerning him/her be deleted immediately, provided that one of the following reasons applies and insofar as the processing is not necessary:

  • The personal data have been collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
  • The data subject withdraws his/her consent on which processing was based under Article 6(1)(a) DS-GMO or Article 9(2)(a) DS-GMO and there is no other legal basis for processing.
  • The data subject opposes processing under Article 21(1) DS-GMO and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing or the data subject opposes processing under Article 21(2) DS-GMO.
  • The personal data was processed unlawfully.
  • The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject.
  • The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 para. 1 DS-GMO.

If one of the above-mentioned reasons applies and a person concerned wishes to have personal data stored by me deleted, they can contact me at any time.

If the personal data have been made public by me and I am obliged as data controller to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 para. 1 DS-GMO, I take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other data controllers who process the published personal data, that the data subject has requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data from these other data controllers, insofar as the processing is not necessary. I will do what is necessary in each individual case.

E) RIGHT TO LIMITATION OF PROCESSING
Any person data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to require the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions is met:

  • The accuracy of the personal data is disputed by the data subject for a period that enables the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
  • The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to delete the personal data and instead requests a restriction on the use of the personal data.
  • The data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
  • The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing under Article 21(1) DS-GMO and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the data subject outweigh those of the data subject.

If one of the above conditions is fulfilled and a person concerned wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by me, they can contact me at any time.

F) RIGHT TO DATA TRANSFERABILITY
Any data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to receive personal data relating to him/her provided by the data subject to a data controller in a structured, current and machine-readable format. It shall also have the right to transmit such data to another data controller without obstruction by the controller to whom the personal data have been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent provided for in Article 6(1)(a) DS GMO or Article 9(2)(a) DS GMO or on a contract in accordance with Article 6(1)(b) DS GMO and that the processing is carried out using automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of public authority conferred on the data controller.

Furthermore, in exercising his right to data transferability pursuant to Article 20(1) DS-GMO, the data subject has the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly by a data controller to another data controller, provided this is technically feasible and provided that the rights and freedoms of other persons are not affected thereby.

The person concerned can contact me at any time to assert the right to data transferability.

G) RIGHT TO OBJECT
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator for reasons arising from their particular situation to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning them under Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DS-GMO. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The www.lobsterskills.com site no longer processes personal data in the event of an objection, unless I can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If I process personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to my person processing for direct marketing purposes, I will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

To exercise the right of opposition, the person concerned may contact me directly. The data subject shall also be free to exercise his right of opposition in relation to the use of information society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

H) AUTOMATED DECISIONS IN INDIVIDUAL CASES INCLUDING PROFILING
Any person data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effect against him or significantly affects him in a similar manner, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) is admissible under Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject and that such law contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) with the express consent of the data subject.

Where the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is taken with the data subject’s express consent, I shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a data controller, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.

If the person concerned wishes to assert rights with regard to automated decisions, he/she can contact me at any time.

I) RIGHT TO REVOKE CONSENT UNDER DATA PROTECTION LAW
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

If the person concerned wishes to exercise his/her right to withdraw his/her consent, he/she can contact me at any time.

8. DATA PROTECTION PROVISION ON THE USE AND APPLICATION OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS (WITH ANONYMISATION FUNCTION)

The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to Internet sites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on the website from which a person concerned has accessed a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The Google Analytics component is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The data controller uses the suffix “_gat._anonymizeIp” for the web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, Google shortens and anonymizes the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned if my website is accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to my website. Google uses the data and information collected to evaluate the use of my website, among other things, to compile online reports for me that show the activities on my website and to provide other services in connection with the use of my website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of my website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which serves Google, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission statements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which access came and the frequency of visits to my website by the person concerned. Whenever you visit my website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, 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 disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies through my website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, it is possible for the person concerned to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on from the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about the website is available.

9. LEGAL BASIS OF PROCESSING

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GMO serves me as a legal basis for processing operations in which I obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case for example with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GMO. The same applies to such processing procedures which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about my products or services. If I am subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, for example for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GMO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GMO.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GMO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis where processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest on my part or that of a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. Such processing operations are particularly permitted to me because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47, second sentence, DS-GMO).

10. RIGHTS RESPECTED INTERESTS IN PROCESSING FOLLOWED BY THE RESPONSIBLE OR A THIRD

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GMO, it is in my legitimate interest to carry out my activities for the benefit of my well-being.

11. DURATION FOR WHICH THE PERSONAL DATA IS STORED

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

12. LEGISLATIVE OR CONTRACTUAL RULES FOR PROVIDING PERSONAL DATA; REQUIREMENTS FOR CONTRACTING; OBLIGATION OF THE PERSON TO PROVIDE PERSONAL DATA; POSSIBILITY OF NOT PROVIDING

I inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner).
Sometimes it may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that a person concerned provides me with personal data which must subsequently be processed by me. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide me with personal data when I conclude a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact me. I inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or required for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the failure to provide the personal data would have.

13. EXISTENCE OF AN AUTOMATED DECISION MAKING & GOOGLE ANALYTICS TOOL

As a responsible person, I refrain from automatic decision making or profiling.

14. EXISTENCE OF A GOOGLE ANALYTICS TOOL

Furthermore, no use of the Google Analytics functions has been made since 25.05.2018. Goolge does not store any cookies on this website.
