Data protection

PROVIDING US WITH YOUR DATA

Basically you can visit our website without leaving any personal data. In some cases, however, we need such data from you in order to guarantee optimal order processing. Such cases exist, for example

• when requesting information about our activities

• when determining your personal contact person

Even in these cases, you decide what personal data we receive and for what purpose we are allowed to process and use it.

On some pages you can enter personal data such as your name and address in input fields. This data is processed for correspondence with you and for the purpose for which you provided it to us.

Any further collection, processing or use of your personal data will only take place – except in cases where we are obliged to do so by law – if you have given us your consent to do so.

LEGAL BASIS OF DATA PROTECTION

Many service providers, such as the Aggregate Debt Advisory and the Group companies affiliated with us, can now only perform their tasks with the aid of electronic data processing (EDP). Only in this way can contractual relationships and other services offered be handled correctly, quickly and economically. The collection, processing and use of your personal data provided to us using data processing equipment (automated processing) is regulated in particular by the Federal Data Protection Act.

Accordingly, automated and non-automated processing is permissible if permitted by the Federal Data Protection Act or another legal provision or if the data subject has consented. The Federal Data Protection Act always permits this if it is done within the scope of the purpose of a contractual relationship or a trust relationship similar to a contract and if it is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the storing party or a third party, e.g. a recipient, and if there is no reason to assume that the legitimate interest of the data subject in the exclusion of the processing or use outweighs or has such a legitimate interest. In addition to the Federal Data Protection Act, other special laws apply within the scope of the Internet offer, in particular the Teleservices Data Protection Act.

Please note that the information contained in these data protection principles is general and that, in individual cases, the supplementary information may also be included in the respective contractual documentation of our services when the contract is concluded.

YOUR RIGHTS IN ACCORDANCE WITH APPLICABLE DATA PROTECTION LAWS

Aggregate Debt Advisory is committed to the careful handling of your personal information. For this reason, we attach great importance to data protection. When collecting, processing and using this data, we therefore adhere strictly to the requirements of the Federal Data Protection Act and other statutory provisions.

We therefore naturally respect your data protection rights in accordance with the relevant Federal Data Protection Act and the Teleservices Data Protection Act, which in particular include your right to information on stored data and your right to correction, blocking or deletion, which you are entitled to under certain circumstances. Should you therefore no longer agree to the storage of your personal data or should it no longer be correct, we will, on request, delete or block your data or make the necessary corrections (to the extent that this is possible under applicable law).

INFORMATION AND REVOCATION RIGHTS

You have the right to request information from us at any time about the personal data we have stored about you, as well as its origin, recipients or categories of recipients to whom this data is passed and the purpose of storage.

If you have given your consent to the use of personal data, you can revoke it at any time.

All requests for information or contradictions or declarations of revocation regarding the use and processing of your personal data can be sent by e-mail to info@aggregate-da.com or in writing to the above address.

We maintain current technical measures to ensure data security, in particular to protect your personal data from the dangers of data transmission and from third parties gaining knowledge. These will be adapted to the current state of the art.

USE OF YOUR DATA

We use personal data for optimal order processing and customer relationship management, to prevent misuse of our website and to inform you about services and offers. We only process personal data to the extent that this is necessary to provide the services offered. No automatic collection of personal data takes place. The user must submit the personal data himself.

All employees who come into contact with your personal during the course of order processing must comply with confidentiality obligations.

In order to optimally provide the services we offer, it may be necessary to pass on personal data to third parties, such as affiliated group companies. However, such data will only be passed on to the extent permitted by law and only insofar as this is necessary in order to provide the service offered, e.g. to provide you with the desired property information. The data passed on in this way may only be used by the recipient to fulfil his task. No other use is permitted.
