The following data protection statement has been created with the greatest possible care. However, we expressly point out that we provide no warranty or assume any other responsibility for the accuracy, timeliness or completeness of the information provided. We reserve the right to make changes to the information without prior notification. The data protection statement has been created by the authors on the basis of literature currently available. The data protection statement serves as an initial model. It should be noted that many of the problems raised have not yet been resolved by supreme court case law, which is why different views are still being expressed on some points. No liability for correctness and completeness is assumed. It should also be noted that each case should be reviewed on an individual basis and that this model does not replace any individual legal advice.
We appreciate your interest in our company and our services. We consider it our primary task to protect the confidentiality of the personal data you provide and to protect it from unauthorised access. We therefore take the utmost care and apply state-of-the-art security standards to ensure maximum protection of your personal data.

We process personal data that we receive directly from our customers in the course of our business relationship. In addition, we process personal data that we collect from other companies, to carry out orders, to fulfil contracts or on the basis of consent we have received from you, for example. We also process personal data that we have legitimately gained and are permitted to process from publicly available sources, such as commercial registers, the press, the media or the internet. The personal data provided by you will be processed according to the applicable regulations on personal data protection, only for the purposes communicated by you and for which you have given consent for its use. In particular, for:
Your personal data is not disclosed to third parties without your express consent.
The processing of personal data is only lawful if there is a lawful basis for the processing. The lawful basis for the processing may, in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) to (f) of the GDPR, in particular be:
With each visit to our website, whether by a Data Subject or via an automated system, a set of general data and information is collected for the maintenance and safe operation of our website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. This data is collected only to the extent that it is technically necessary. The data remains anonymous and is evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes to improve our websites and online services. The data collected is used solely for statistical evaluations and to improve the website. We reserve the right, however, to review the server log files subsequently, in the event that concrete and valid evidence indicates an illegal use of our website.
Where the website is used for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to guarantee its stability and security. These items are:
When using this general data and information, BDT Media Automation GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the Data Subject. Rather, this information is needed to
This data and information collected anonymously are therefore statistically evaluated by BDT Media Automation GmbH with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us.
The anonymous data from the server log files is stored separately from all personal data given by a Data Subject and, therefore, does not provide any conclusions about individual persons. This means that your personal data is protected at all times. This data is processed based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR under the legitimate interest in the provision and secure operation of our website. You have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data, for reasons arising from your particular situation, based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. To exercise this right, you may contact us at any time, as the Data Controller or our data protection officer, using the contact details provided in this statement.
Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser.
We also use a limited number of persistent cookies. These remain on your computer until you delete them or until they expire after a period of up to a year, as a general rule.
Persistent cookies contain the following information:
The user data collected by cookies is not used to create user profiles. The data collected from you in this way is pseudonymised by technical means. We are therefore unable to relate this data to you personally. The data is not stored together with your other personal data. These cookies help us to gather reliable information about website usage. In this way, we can measure how well the website complies with the requirements of its users, and, if necessary, make improvements.
The analysis cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and its content. By using analysis cookies, we learn how the site is used and can constantly optimise our service. The data that we have collected about your surfing behaviour on our website is stored under absolutely secure conditions. These cookies are used only for the purposes described here.
You can manage and/or delete cookies as you wish. You can delete any cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers so that they are not placed on your computer. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site, and some services and functions may not work.
You can easily accept or reject the cookies on this page. However, you can reject only persistent cookies, which are not strictly necessary. Some cookies are needed because they make certain functions available. Flash cookies cannot be prevented in the browser settings, but by changing the Flash Player settings.
On the basis of statutory regulations, the BDT Media Automation GmbH website contains information that enables customers to quickly contact us electronically, as well to communicate with us directly, which also includes a general e-mail address.
If a Data Subject contacts us by e-mail or any other means of contact, the personal data transmitted by the Data Subject will be automatically stored. We process your personal data which you provide to us by e-mail contact form, etc. to answer and fulfil your requests. You are not obliged to provide your personal data. But if you do not provide us your e-mail address we cannot reply by e-mail. Personal data submitted on a voluntary basis to us is stored for purposes of processing the request and contacting the Data Subject.
This personal data is not transmitted to third parties.
By sending your message, you consent to the processing of the data transferred. This data is processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR with your consent.
You may revoke your consent at any time by notifying us, without affecting the lawfulness of processing carried out on the basis of consent until the time of revocation. We will only use your e-mail address to respond to your enquiry. Your data will then be deleted, taking into account statutory and, in particular, tax and commercial law retention periods, unless you have consented to further processing and use.
Your personal data is stored using all possible technical and organisational measures so that it is not accessible to third parties. As the recipient, we cannot guarantee complete data security for e-mail communication, so we recommend that you send confidential information by post. This data is processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR with your consent. You may revoke your consent at any time by notifying us, without affecting the lawfulness of processing carried out on the basis of consent until the time of revocation.
Where there is the possibility of entering personal data on our website, data is disclosed on an expressly voluntary basis. Of course, this data will be handled confidentially by us.
You may revoke your consent at any time by notifying us, without affecting the lawfulness of processing carried out on the basis of consent until the time of revocation.
Where it is possible to make comments on content we publish, we collect your personal data (name, e-mail address, and comment text) only to the extent that it is provided by you. The purpose of this processing is to allow comments to be made and displayed. In addition, your IP address is stored upon submission of the comment in order to prevent abuse of the comment function and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. Our legitimate interest is in the public exchange of user opinions on certain topics and products for the purpose of transparency and opinion-forming. Your interest in data protection is maintained, as you can publish your comment under a pseudonym. A certain storage period is not provided for. You can request to have your comment deleted at any time. You have the right at any time to object to data processing under Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR and not for the purpose of direct marketing for reasons arising from your particular situation. To exercise this right, you may contact us at any time, as the Data Controller or our data protection officer, using the contact details provided in this statement. This personal data collected is not disclosed to third parties, unless such disclosure is required by law or serves for the legal defence of the Data Controller.
BDT Media Automation GmbH offers users the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog on the Data Controller’s website. A blog is a page run on a website, usually a publicly accessible portal, in which one or more persons, called bloggers or web bloggers, can post articles or thoughts in blogposts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties. If a Data Subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, not only the comments left by the Data Subject, but also information on the time of input of the comment and the username (pseudonym) chosen by the Data Subject are saved and published.
Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the internet service provider (ISP) of the Data Subject is also logged. This data is processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR based on the legitimate interest in storing the IP address for security reasons and, where appropriate, in serving as a legal defence in the event that the Data Subject’s comment violates the rights of third parties, or provides illegal content, or breaches any legal provisions. You have the right at any time to object to data processing under Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR and not for the purpose of direct marketing for reasons arising from your particular situation. To exercise this right, you may contact us at any time, as the Data Controller or our data protection officer, using the contact details provided in this statement. This personal data collected is not disclosed to third parties, unless such disclosure is required by law or serves for the legal defence of the Data Controller.
The comments made on the blog of BDT Media Automation GmbH can, in principle, be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, a commentator could subscribe to replies to a comment on a particular blog post. If a Data Subject decides to subscribe to comments, the Data Controller will send an automatic confirmation e-mail as part of the double opt-in process to ensure that the owner of the specified e-mail address has actually decided to do so.
You may revoke your consent at any time by notifying us, without affecting the lawfulness of processing carried out on the basis of consent until the time of revocation. The option to subscribe to comments can be revoked at any time.
We currently use the following social media plug-ins: [Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Xing, T3N, LinkedIn and Flattr]. We use the two-click solution. This means that if you visit our site, initially no personal data will be passed on to these plug-ins’ providers. You can identify the provider of the plug-in by the marking on the box above its initial letter or the logo. You can communicate directly with the plug-in provider via the button. Clicking the marked field will activate it, and the plug-in provider receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website from our website. In addition, the data mentioned under section 3 of this statement will be transmitted. In the case of Facebook and Xing, the IP address of the respective provider in Germany is anonymised immediately after collection. By activating the plug-in, data is automatically transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the USA for US providers). Since the plug-in provider collects data mainly via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies using your browser’s security settings before clicking on the greyed-out box.
We have no influence on the data collected and the data handling processes, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes of processing or the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.
The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or customised design of its website. Such evaluation is also carried out in particular (including for users who are not logged in) to display customised advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles. You must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins, we offer you the option to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offering and make it more interesting for you as a user. The lawful basis for this use is Article 6 (1)(1)(f) of the GDPR.
The data is passed on regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected with us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you click on the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and shares this with your contacts in public. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating the button, as this way you can avoid linking to your profile with the plug-in provider.
For more information on the purpose and extent of the data collection and processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the data protection statements of these providers below. You will also find further information on your rights and settings options for protecting your privacy there.
Addresses of the plug-in providers and the link to their data protection policy:
Facebook is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework
Google is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework
Twitter is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
We only store and process data which you voluntarily provide to us. If you make use of services, generally only data that we absolutely need to provide the services and to safeguard our own legitimate business interests is collected. If we ask you for further information, you are under no obligation to provide it.
If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no lawful basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent for the processing the data of the Data Subject. Personal data is always processed in accordance with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), and in accordance with the state-specific data protection provisions applicable to BDT Media Automation GmbH.
BDT Media Automation GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures as the Data Controller in order to ensure that all personal data processed via this website is protected as best as possible. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can by their very nature have security gaps, so absolute protection cannot be 100% guaranteed. For this reason, every Data Subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or post.
If it is necessary to obtain personal data, the processing of which is permitted or provided for on a lawful basis, we collect this from the Data Subject before processing in the form of voluntary consent. You may revoke your consent at any time by notifying us, without affecting the lawfulness of processing carried out on the basis of consent until the time of revocation.
If the processing is absolutely necessary to maintain a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, and it must be ensured that the interests are proportionate and the fundamental rights and freedoms of the Data Subject do not prevail, then we conduct the processing on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR in a considered assessment of risks related to this and in full awareness of our fiduciary duty according to strict assessment criteria, which otherwise are not included in any of the above mentioned lawful bases. You have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data, for reasons arising from your particular situation, based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. To exercise this right, you may contact us at any time, as the Data Controller or our data protection officer, using the contact details provided in this statement.
We are, in particular, allowed to carry out such processing procedures that sometimes become necessary because they have been specifically provided for in EU legislation. In this regard this maintains the condition that, for example, a legitimate interest could be assumed if the Data Subject is a customer of the Data Controller. (see Recital 47(2) of the GDPR).
We use your e-mail address, which we have obtained within the framework of a personal contact or in connection with an agency/project undertaking or in connection with a service delivery/claim or in connection with the sale/purchase of a good/product, for the electronic transmission of marketing for our own offers, products or services, which are similar to those that you have already ordered with us, if you have not objected to such use. This data is processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR on the basis of the legitimate interest in direct marketing. You have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data, without giving any reasons, based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. To exercise this right, you may contact us at any time, as the Data Controller or our data protection officer, using the contact details provided in this statement. You can also use the dedicated link in the promotional e-mail. There are no other costs involved in sending this notification other than the transmission costs in accordance with the basic tariffs.
We wish to point out that we are entitled to send all relevant data concerning outstanding claims made on the basis of non-contractual behaviour to credit agencies, in compliance with the statutory requirements.
If we make advance outlays, for example, if you pay on account or on credit, we reserve the right to obtain a credit rating. To do this, we submit the personal data required for a credit check to a credit agency. We use the information obtained about the statistical probability of default for making a balanced decision with respect to the conclusion, execution or termination of the contract. Your legitimate interests will be taken into account in accordance with the legal requirements.
This data is processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR on the basis of the aforementioned legitimate interest. You have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data, for reasons arising from your particular situation, based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. To exercise this right, you can contact us at any time, as the Data Controller. The credit information can contain probability values (score values), which are calculated on the basis of scientifically recognised mathematical-statistical methods.
When creating a quotation or offer acceptance, we collect and use personal data only as necessary to generate, fulfil and process quotes and/or contracts, as well as to process requests in this regard. This data must be provided in order to conclude the contract.
This data is processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR and is necessary to conclude and execute a contract with you. Service providers employed by us and acting on our behalf (order processors, see Article 28 GDPR) can process data for purposes mentioned in Section IV, Part A.
Existing services which the contractor generally uses with third parties as an ancillary service, in support of its operation or its business in the context of order processing, also fall within the sense of this statement. In such cases, personal data is processed by the operator under contract in accordance with Article 28 of the GDPR in connection with Section of the 62 BDSG.
Inasmuch as ancillary services also need to be used for the processing, the processing is based on Article 6(1)(f) GDPR on the basis of the legitimate interest in maintaining business operations. You have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data, for reasons arising from your particular situation, based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. To exercise this right, you may contact us at any time, as the Data Controller or our data protection officer, using the contact details provided in this statement. These include ancillary services to ensure the confidentiality, availability, integrity and capacity of the computer hardware and software used and called upon by the contractor, such as:
Your data is not disclosed to third parties, who then process it under their own responsibility, without your express consent. Only our service partners which we need to conduct the contractual relationship or service providers we use in the course of order processing are excluded from this. The scope of the disclosure of data is limited to a minimum. In all cases, we assure you that when choosing our service providers which we use in individual cases, we select these carefully and in good faith, in terms of their suitability and reliability, ensuring that they satisfy our own requirements and standards.
Personal data is transmitted to authorised national institutions and authorities only within the framework of relevant laws or unless we are required by a court decision to do so. This data is processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) of the GDPR. We may transmit your personal data to the companies referred to under Section II. A. and to companies affiliated with us, to the extent permitted by the purposes set out in Section IV. A. and the lawful bases referred to in Section IV. B.
We do not envisage transmitting your data to a third country. If our service providers or partners are located in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will inform you of the consequences of this in the description of the relevant offer.
Within BDT Media Automation GmbH, only those persons who receive your data and are entrusted with processing the contract or handling your request. Otherwise, personal data is processed on our behalf, on the basis of contracts pursuant to Article 28 of the GDPR in conjunction with Section 62 of the BDSG. In addition to the recipient named in the respective provisions of this data protection statement, this may be to recipients in the following categories:
The recipients can be also our affiliates, insofar as this is allowed for within the purposes set forth in this statement and lawful bases.
The Data Controller processes and stores the personal data of the Data Subject only for the period that is necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage. After completion of the contract, the data is first stored for the duration of the warranty period; then, taking into account any legal and, in particular, tax and commercial retention periods, your data is stored and then deleted after this period, unless you have agreed to further processing and use or unless this is otherwise determined by the European Commission or any other laws or regulations to which the Data Controller is subject.
Our employees and the service companies commissioned by us are contractually bound to confidentiality and to comply with data protection, in accordance with regulations of the German Federal Data Protection Act.
Our offer is essentially aimed at adults. Persons below the age of 18 should not transmit personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians.
We generally require no personal data from a child or children or a young person or young people, and we do not collect and or disclose such data to third parties. Nevertheless, in special circumstances, we may need and request such personal data to process an application, under our legitimate interest in the application for the establishment of a possible employment relationship.
In such cases, personal data is processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, for the legitimate interest of the aforementioned purpose and to obtain the necessary written consent of one or more parents or guardians in the processing.
The parents or guardians may revoke their consent at any time by notifying us, without affecting the lawfulness of processing carried out on the basis of consent until the time of revocation. You have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data, for reasons arising from your particular situation, based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. To exercise this right, you may contact us at any time, as the Data Controller or our data protection officer, using the contact details provided in this statement.
If the Data Controller concludes an employment or placement contract with an applicant, the data to be transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. This data is processed on basis of Section 26(1) in conjunction with (8)(2) of the BDSG in the course of employment.
Insofar as the application is necessary to fulfil a contract with the applicant or to carry out pre-contractual measures, the lawful basis for processing the data is based on Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR.
You can revoke consent provided under the lawful basis of Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR at any time by informing us, without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of consent until the time of revocation.
Insofar as ancillary services are to be used for processing, the processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, based on the legitimate interest in the handling of the application process. You have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data, for reasons arising from your particular situation, based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. To exercise this right, you may contact us at any time, as the Data Controller or our data protection officer, using the contact details provided in this statement.
As part of the application process, we obtain the consent of the applicant. You can revoke consent provided under the lawful basis of Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR at any time by informing us, without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of consent until the time of revocation.
If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no lawful basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent for the processing the data of the Data Subject. You can revoke consent provided under the lawful basis of Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR at any time by informing us, without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of consent until the time of revocation.
As far as employment between you and us is concerned, we may process the personal data already obtained from you for employment purposes. The lawful basis flows from Section 26(1) in conjunction with (8)(2) of the BDSG if this is necessary for the creation, implementation or termination of the employment relationship or for exercising or fulfilling the rights and obligations of the employees resulting therefrom.
Otherwise, the application process ends with the receipt of the rejection by the applicant.
In the event that an employment relationship between you and us does not come into effect, we may also continue to store data based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR to the extent necessary to defend against possible legal claims. You have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data, for reasons arising from your particular situation, based on Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. To exercise this right, you may contact us at any time, as the Data Controller or our data protection officer, using the contact details provided in this statement.
Data is processed on the basis of Article 88 of the GDPR in conjunction with Section 26 of the BDSG.
We have taken technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal information against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. Our security measures are continuously updated in accordance with technological development and the state of the art,as far as economically viable and acceptable, so as to keep the confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of our systems and services always at the highest level.
All of our employees and all persons involved in data processing are contractually obliged to observe the data protection laws and provisions and are also bound to the confidential handling of personal data as well as to data protection and confidentiality.

We inform you that the provision of personal data can partly be required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner).

They will inform you whether the provision of personal data is legally or contractually determined and whether it is absolutely necessary for the conclusion of the contract with you or whether there is an obligation to provide personal data and what the consequences of a failure to provide the personal data are.
Sometimes you may be required to supply us with your personal data in order to conclude a contract, which must be processed by us as a result. For example, you are required to provide us with your personal data if our company wishes to enter into a contract with you.
