Data Protection Policy
We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of the HYDE GmbH (‘Hyde’). A use of the Internet pages of Hyde is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Hyde. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed about the rights to which they are entitled by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller, Hyde has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
The data protection declaration of Hyde is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the general public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terminology used in advance.
a. personal data
Personal data is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as the "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, to an identification number, to location data, to an online identifier or to one or more special features that express the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.
b. affected person
The data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing is any operation or series of operations which is carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures in connection with personal data, such as the collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or modification, reading, querying, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or other form of readiness, compensation or association, restriction, deletion or destruction.
d. restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the identification of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data, which consists in using these personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular aspects relating to work performance, economic situation, health, personal Analyze or predict the preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements of that natural person.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is expressly retained and is subject to technical and organizational measures that ensure that the personal data cannot be assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g. controller or person responsible for processing
The person responsible or responsible for processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body which, alone or jointly with others, decides on the purpose and means of processing personal data. If the purposes and means of such processing are provided for by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
Processor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body to which personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, authorities that may receive personal data as part of a specific investigation order under trade union law or the law of the member states are not considered recipients.
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.
Consent is any voluntary, informed and unambiguous expression of wishes given by the data subject for a specific case in the form of a statement or other clear affirmative action by which the data subject indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data concerning him or her agrees.

Collection of general data and information
The website of Hyde collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the website, (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 avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, Hyde does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, Hyde analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
Registration on our website
The data subject has the opportunity to register on the website of the controller by providing personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller in this case is determined by the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject will be collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for his own purposes. The controller may arrange for the transfer to one or more processors, for example a parcel service provider, who will also use the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to the controller.
By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject, the date and time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and if necessary, this data makes it possible to clarify committed crimes. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to protect the controller. As a matter of principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or if the passing on serves criminal prosecution.
The registration of the data subject with the voluntary indication of personal data serves the controller to offer the data subject content or services that, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have it completely deleted from the database of the person responsible for processing.
The controller shall provide each data subject with information on which personal data about the data subject is stored at any time upon request. Furthermore, the controller rectifies or deletes personal data at the request or notice of the data subject, as far as there are no legal storage obligations to the contrary. The entirety of the employees of the controller are available to the data subject as a contact person in this context.
Subscription to our newsletter
On the website of Hyde, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise's newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.
Hyde informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. In principle, the newsletter of our company can only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter dispatch. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter shipping in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.
When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the(possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date and therefore serves the legal protection of the controller.
The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will be used exclusively for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in this regard, as this could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or in the event of changes in the technical conditions. The personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given us for the newsletter dispatch, can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking consent, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. Furthermore, it is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller or to inform the controller of this in another way.
The newsletter of Hyde contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. As a result, a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns can be carried out. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Hyde may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.
Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are entitled at any time to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued via the double opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. Hyde automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
Possibility of contact via the website
The website of Hyde contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
The controller processes and stores the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or if this has been provided for by the European legislator or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.
If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European directive and regulation giver or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

d. right to erasure (right to be forgotten)
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority to request from the controller that the personal data concerning him/her be deleted immediately, provided that one of the following reasons applies and provided that the processing is not necessary:
The personal data have been collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which they are no longer necessary. The data subject revokes his or her consent on which the processing is based in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 Letter a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 Letter a GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing. In accordance with Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or the data subject submits an objection to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 Par. 2 GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing. The personal data has been processed unlawfully. The deletion of the personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject. The personal data were collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 para. 1 of the GDPR. If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by Hyde, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. An employee of Hyde shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.
If the personal data has been made public by Hyde and our company is responsible as the person responsible in accordance with Art. 17 para. 1 DS-GVO, Hyde shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other persons responsible for data processing who process the published personal data, that the data subject has requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data from these other data controllers, insofar as the processing is not necessary. An employee of Hyde will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.
e. right to restriction of processing
Each data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority to request the controller to restrict processing if one of the following conditions is met:
The accuracy of the personal data is disputed by the data subject, namely for a period that allows the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data. The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to delete the personal data and instead requests the restriction of the use of the personal data. The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject needs them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. The data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Art. Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the person responsible outweigh those of the person concerned. If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of the processing of personal data stored by Hyde, he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller. The employee of Hyde will arrange the restriction of the processing.
f. right to data portability
Each data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority to receive the personal data concerning him/her, which was provided to a controller by the data subject, in a structured, common and machine-readable format.

g. right to object
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulatory authority, for reasons arising from their particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning them, which is based on Art. 6 para. 1 Letter e or f of the GDPR, to file an objection. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
In the event of an objection, Hyde will no longer process the personal data, unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If Hyde processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to Hyde to the processing for direct marketing purposes, Hyde will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her by Hyde for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89 para. 1 GDPR, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.

h. automated individual decision-making, including profiling
Each data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations, not one based exclusively on automated processing - including profiling — to be subject to a decision based on the data subject, which has a legal effect on him or significantly affects him in a similar way, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is based on Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, is permissible and these legal regulations contain appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject or (3) is carried out with the express consent of the data subject.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject's explicit consent, Hyde shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
Right to revoke a data protection consent
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator to revoke 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 any employee of the controller.
Data protection for 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 can also be carried out electronically. This is the case in particular if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form located on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the legal regulations. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant by the controller, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
Legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the 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 data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and as a result his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO are based. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR are based. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis, if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
The processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
Duration for which the personal data will be stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer required for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information about the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data when our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies to the data subject 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 of non-provision of the personal data would be.
Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
