We, RSB LOGISTIC Projektspedition GmbH, Köhlstraße 10, 50827 Cologne, Germany, are the website operator and the controller responsible for processing personal data of website users. Our contact information is available in the imprint of the website, and contact persons available to answer questions related to the processing of personal data are listed directly in this Privacy Statement. We take the protection of your privacy and your private data very seriously. We collect, store, and use your personal data only in accordance with the content of this Data Privacy Declaration as well as applicable data protection law regulations, in particular the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and national data protection provisions. The purpose of this Data Privacy Declaration is to inform you of the scope of personal data that is processed in conjunction with your use of the website, as well as the purposes of that processing.

2. General information

2.1 Personal data

Personal data is information about an identifiable or identified natural person. This includes all information related to your identity, such as your name, your e-mail address, or your mailing address. Information that cannot be associated with your identity – such as statistical information, for instance the number of website users – is not considered personal data. You can generally use our website without disclosing your identity and without providing any personal data. In this case, we will only collect general information regarding your visit to our website. However, personal data will be collected from you in order to carry out some of the services we offer. We will then generally only process this data for the purpose of using this website, in particular to provide you with the desired information. When personal data is collected, only data that is absolutely necessary must be provided. You may have the opportunity to provide further information, but this will then be done on a voluntary basis. In each case, we will indicate whether the fields are mandatory or voluntary information. We will then provide further information on the concrete details in the relevant section of this Data Privacy Declaration. No automated decision-making is carried out based on your personal data in conjunction with the use of our website.

2.2 Processing of personal data

We store your information on specially protected servers within the European Union. These are protected via technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification, or processing of your personal data by unauthorised personnel. Access to your data is granted to only a few, authorised individuals. These individuals are responsible for technical, commercial, or editorial servicing of the servers. Despite regular controls, however, it is not possible to provide complete protection against all hazards. Your personal data is transmitted over the internet in an encrypted format. We use SSL-encryption (Secure Sockets Layer) for data transmission.

2.3 Transmission of personal data to third parties

Generally, we use your personal data only to perform services that you request. If we use external service providers in order to provide our services, then they are likewise permitted to access the data only for the purpose of performing the services. We use technical and organisational measures to ensure compliance with data protection law regulations, and we likewise obligate our external service providers to take similar measures. Furthermore, we do not transmit your data to third parties without your express consent, in partic-ular not for advertising purposes. Your personal data is disclosed only if you have personally con-sented to this when you provide the data, or if we are entitled or obligated to disclose the data under the law and/or official or court order. This may include, in particular, providing information for the purposes of criminal prosecution, to avoid danger, or to exercise intellectual property rights. If we transmit your personal data ourselves or via service providers to states outside of the Euro-pean Union, we comply with the special provisions of Art. 44 et seqq. GDPR in doing so, and like-wise obligate our service providers to comply with these regulations. Therefore, we will only transmit your data to states outside of the European Union if the level of protection granted under the GDPR can be ensured. This level of protection is ensured, in particular, through an adequacy decision of the EU Commission or suitable guarantees according to Art. 46 GDPR.

2.4 Legal bases of data processing

If we obtain consent for the processing of your personal data, then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for data processing. If we process your personal data because this is necessary to fulfil a contract or in the course of a relationship that is similar to a contract with you, then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR serves as the legal basis for data processing. If we process your personal data in order to fulfil a legal obligation, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR serves as the legal basis for data processing. Furthermore, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR can serve as the legal basis for data processing if the pro-cessing of your personal data is necessary in order to safeguard a legitimate interest of our compa-ny or that of a third party, and if your interests, basic rights and basic freedoms do not require that the personal data be protected. In the course of this Data Privacy Declaration, we will always note the legal basis for the processing of your personal data.

2.5 Data deletion and storage term

In general, we always delete or block your personal data when the purpose for which it was stored no longer applies. However, data may continue to be stored if this is provided under laws to which we are subject, for instance with respect to statutory retention and documentary obligations. In such cases, we will delete or block your personal data after the end of relevant regulated terms.

You have the option of requesting the deletion of your application at any time, even before the expiry of the retention periods provided for.
