​II. General information on data processing

1. Scope of processing of personal data

 

In principle, we only process the personal data of our users to the extent that this is necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in such cases in which it is not possible to obtain prior consent for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by statutory provisions.

 

2. Legal basis for processing personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the person concerned for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation serves (GDPR) as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is required to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_b GDPR as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit._cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b serves -136bad5cf58d_c GDPR as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit._cc781905-5cde -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_d DSGVO as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the first interest, Art. 6 Abs. bb3b-136bad5cf58d_1 lit. f GDPR as the legal basis for processing.

3. Data Erasure and Storage Duration

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage can also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.

VI. Integration of third-party services and content

It may happen that content from third parties is included in our website, for example YouTube videos, material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. As a rule, this requires that the providers of this content perceive the IP address of the user, since no content can be sent to the browser of the respective user without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. The operator has no influence on whether and how third-party providers save IP addresses.

VII. Information on Online Dispute Resolution

According to Art. 14 Para. 1 ODR-VO (EU Regulation No. 524/2013), the EU Commission provides an internet platform for the online settlement of disputes (so-called "OS platform").

VIII. Social Media Activities / Social Plugins

 

​1. Facebook

The TRC Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/trcseparation) is also publicly visible without a Facebook login, but a separate profile is required for interaction. If you click the "Like" button on the TRC Facebook page, the posts will appear in your News Feed. When you set up a personal profile, Facebook will ask you to enter some information, such as your name and date of birth. You can determine to what extent you make your information accessible to the public in the privacy settings.

TRC Social Plugins ("Plugins") from the social network facebook.com operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook "). The list and appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be found athttp://developers.facebook.com/pluginsbe viewed.

If you access a website on our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser, which integrates it into the website. We have no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and we are therefore informing you according to the state of our knowledge: By integrating the plugin, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and store your IP address.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy can be found in Facebook's data protection information: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php

If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via the TRC website and link it to your member data stored on Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
