We are delighted about your interest in our company. The management of Global Climate® GmbH attaches great importance to data protection. A use of the internet pages of Global Climate® GmbH is basically possible without any specification of personal data. However, if a person wishes to make use of special services offered by our company via our website, it may be necessary to provide personal data. If it is necessary to collect and process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will obtain the consent of the person concerned.
The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number, is always carried out in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Global Climate® GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company wishes to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, this data protection declaration informs concerned persons about their rights.
Global Climate® GmbH, as the party responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as effectively as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as by telephone.
The data protection declaration of Global Climate® GmbH is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Regulatory authority when the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) was issued. Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand both for the public and for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:
a) Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as ‘person concerned’). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
(b) Person concerned
Person concerned means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed.
Processing is any operation or set of operations, performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, sorting, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, 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 their future processing.
Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of 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 that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or change of location.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed 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 organizational measures that ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
(g) Controller or data controller
Controller or data controller shall mean the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union law or by the law of the Member States, provision may be made for the controller or for the specific criteria for his or her designation in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States.
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation, in accordance with Union or national law, shall not be considered as recipients.
(j) Third party
Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.
Consent shall mean any freely given specific and informed expression of the will of the person concerned, in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative act by which the person concerned indicates his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

4. Collection of general data and information
The Global Climate® GmbH website collects a range of general data and information every time the website is accessed by a person concerned or by an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The following can be recorded: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information which serve to prevent danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
Global Climate® GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned when using this general data and information. Rather, this information is required in order to (1) deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) optimise the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) provide law enforcement agencies with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. These anonymously collected data and information are therefore evaluated by Global Climate® GmbH statistically and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.
5. Possibility of contact via the website
Due to legal regulations, the Global Climate® GmbH website contains information that enables fast electronic contact to our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a person concerned contacts the data controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted voluntarily by a person concerned to the controller are stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the person concerned. Such personal data shall not be disclosed to third parties.
6. Regular erasure and blocking of personal data
The controller shall process and store personal data relating to the person concerned only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or if provided for by the European Directive and Regulation Authorities or any other law or regulation to which the controller is subject.
If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Authorities or any other competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the law.
7. Rights of the person concerned
(a) Right to confirmation
Every person concerned has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data relating to him or her are being processed.

(b) Right to information
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain at any time and free of charge from the controller information on the personal data stored in relation to him or her and a copy thereof. Furthermore, the European Directive and Regulation Giver has granted the person concerned access to the following information:

The person concerned shall also have the right to obtain information as to whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the person concerned shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer.
If a person concerned wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may at any time contact a member of the staff of the controller.
(c) Right of rectification
Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directives and Regulations to demand the immediate rectification of incorrect personal data concerning him/her. Furthermore, the person concerned has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration, taking into account the purposes of the processing.
If a person concerned wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.
(d) Right of deletion (right to be forgotten)
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data relating to him/her, where one of the following reasons applies and provided that the processing is not necessary:
– the personal data have been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer necessary
– The person concerned withdraws the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the DPA or Article 9(2)(a) of the DPA, and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
– The person concerned objects to the processing in accordance with Article 21(1) of the DS-BER and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or the person concerned objects to the processing in accordance with Article 21(2) of the DS-BER.
– The personal data were processed unlawfully.
– The deletion of the personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
– The personal data were collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Article 8 (1) DS-GVO.
If one of the above reasons applies and a person concerned wishes to have personal data stored by Global Climate® GmbH deleted, he or she can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of Global Climate® GmbH will ensure that the request for deletion is complied with immediately (within one month at the latest).
If the personal data has been made public by Global Climate® GmbH and our company as the responsible party is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 (1) DS-GVO, Global Climate® GmbH will take reasonable 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 person concerned has requested these other data controllers to delete all links to these personal data or copies or replications of these personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The employee of Global Climate® GmbH will take the necessary steps in each individual case.
(e) Right to limited processing
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to request the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions is met:
– the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the person concerned, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data
– The processing is unlawful, the person concerned refuses to have the personal data deleted and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data.
– The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the person concerned needs them in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
– The person concerned has lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) of the DPA and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons given by the controller outweigh those of the person concerned.
If one of the above-mentioned conditions is met and a person concerned wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by Global Climate® GmbH, he or she may contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of Global Climate® GmbH will arrange for the restriction of the processing.
(f) Right to data transmission
Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to receive the personal data concerning him/her which have been provided by the person concerned to a data controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. He/she also has the right to have this data communicated to another controller without hindrance by the controller to whom the personal data has been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) DPA or Art. 9(2)(a) DPA or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6(1)(b) DPA and that the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, when exercising their right to data transferability in accordance with Art. 20 Paragraph 1 DPA, the person concerned has the right to request that personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically possible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.
In order to assert the right to data transferability, the person concerned can contact an employee of Global Climate® GmbH at any time.
(g) Right of appeal
Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator for Directives and Regulations, to object at any time, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her that is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DPA. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
In the event of an objection Global Climate® GmbH will no longer process the personal data, unless we can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing which are worthy of protection and which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If Global Climate® GmbH processes personal data in order to carry out direct advertising, the person concerned 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 person concerned objects to Global Climate® GmbH processing for the purpose of direct marketing, Global Climate® GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the person concerned has the right to object, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out at Global Climate® GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 (1) DS-GVO, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
To exercise the right of objection the data subject may directly contact any employee of Global Climate® GmbH or any other employee. The person concerned is also free to exercise his/her right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.
(h) Automated case-by-case decisions including profiling
Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, as granted by the European Directives and Regulations, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar way, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the controller is subject and that such legislation provides for adequate safeguards of the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the person concerned, or (3) is taken with the explicit consent of the data subject.
Where the decision is (1) necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the person concerned and the controller, or (2) with the express consent of the person concerned, Global Climate® GmbH shall take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the person concerned, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of the controller, to put forward his or her point of view and to challenge the decision.
If the person concerned wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may at any time contact a member of the staff of the controller.
i) Right to revoke a data protection consent
Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver, to revoke his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise his or her right to withdraw consent, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.
8. Data protection in applications and in the application process
The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out by electronic means. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits the relevant application documents to the controller electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data is stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, unless deletion is contrary to any other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, a duty of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
9. Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a 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 performance of a contract to which the person concerned is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company was injured and his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular 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 data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
10. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
11. Duration for which personal data are stored
The criteria for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
12. Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data;
Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the person concerned to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the data
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes personal data available to us, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be concluded. Before the person concerned makes personal data available, he or she must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.
13. existence of automated decision making
As a responsible company, we avoid automatic decision making or profiling.
