INTRODUCTION AND TERMS
By operating our website https://atdigitalservices.com (hereinafter referred to as “website”), we process personal data. These are treated confidentially by us and processed in accordance with the applicable laws – in particular the German Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG-neu). With our data protection regulations, we want to inform you which personal data we collect from you, for which purposes and on which legal basis we use it and, if applicable, to whom we disclose it. In addition, we will explain what rights you have to protect and enforce your data privacy.
2.1 Personal data
“Personal data” is any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual (Art. 4 No. 1 DSGVO). Information of an identified person can be e.g. the name or the e-mail address. However, personal data is also data for which the identity is not immediately apparent, but can be determined by combining one’s own or third-party information and thus learning who the person is. A person can be identified, for example, by providing his or her address or bank details, date of birth or user name, IP addresses and/or location data. Relevant here is all information that in any way allows a conclusion to be drawn about a person.
A “processing” is understood by Art. 4 No. 2 DSGVO to mean any operation in connection with personal data. This applies in particular to the collection, recording, organization, arrangement, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure, transmission, dissemination or other form of making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction of personal data.

5. PROCESSING FRAMEWORK: WEBSITE
Within the framework of the website with the URL https://atdigitalservices.com, we process the personal data from you listed in detail below under points 6-14.

Your data will be processed exclusively by us and will not be sold, lent or passed on to third parties. If we use the help of external service providers to process your personal data, this is done within the framework of so-called order processing, in which we as the client are authorized to issue instructions to our contractors. For the operation of our website, we use external service providers for hosting, as well as for maintenance, care and further development. If further external service providers are used for individual processing operations listed in sections 6-14, they will be named there.
Data transfer to third countries does not take place and is not planned. We will provide information about exceptions to this principle in the processing operations described below.

The processing is carried out to enable the website to be called up and to ensure its stability and security. In addition, the processing serves the statistical evaluation and improvement of our online offer.

The processing is necessary to protect the overriding legitimate interests of the controller (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). Our legitimate interest lies in the purpose named in section 6.2.
6.4 Storage period
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. Deletion of the log files takes place after 30 days.
7. CONTACT FORM AND CONTACT BY E-MAIL

9. SOCIAL NETWORKS
9.1 Description of processing
Certain subpages of our website contain so-called social plugins offered by the external social networks Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+. When you call up a page that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of the social network. The content of the respective social plugin is transmitted by the social network directly to your browser and displayed on our website. To prevent this, we use the so-called two-click solution. For this purpose, we have integrated the social plugins on our website in such a way that the connection of the social plugins with the servers of the social networks is interrupted by default. If you want to communicate directly with a social network on our website via the social plugin and enable data exchange, you must click on the respective desired social plugin and thereby activate it.
After activating a social plugin, we no longer have any influence on the scope of the data that the respective social network collects. We therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge.
By activating a social plugin, your IP address is transmitted to the respective social network in connection with the address of our website. If you are logged into the social network when visiting our website, this information will be assigned to your user account there. If you interact with an activated social plugin, e.g. “share”, “like” or “retweet” a post by means of the social plugin, this information is also transmitted directly to the respective social network and also stored there in your user account.
The social networks with which you communicate store your data as user profiles and also use them for advertising purposes, for market research and/or for the needs-based design of their websites. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, for the exercise of which you must contact the social networks directly.
The processing is carried out in order to provide you with convenient user-friendly communication with the social networks.
9.3 Legal basis
The processing is necessary to protect the overriding legitimate interests of the controller (Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO). Our legitimate interest lies in the purpose named in section 10.2.

13. DATA SUBJECT RIGHTS
With regard to the data processing by our company described above, you are entitled to the following data subject rights:
13.1 Information (Art. 15 DSGVO).
You have the right to request confirmation from us as to whether we are processing personal data relating to you. If this is the case, you have a right to information about this personal data and to the further information listed in Art. 15 DSGVO under the conditions specified in Art. 15 DSGVO.
13.2 Correction (Art. 16 DSGVO).
You have the right to demand that we correct any inaccurate personal data concerning you and, if necessary, complete any incomplete personal data without undue delay.
13.3 Deletion (Art. 17 DSGVO).
You have the right to demand that we delete personal data concerning you without undue delay, provided that one of the reasons listed in detail in Art. 17 DSGVO applies, e.g. if your data is no longer required for the purposes we pursue.
13.4 Restriction of data processing (Art. 18 DSGVO).
You have the right to request us to restrict processing if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 DSGVO applies, e.g. if you dispute the accuracy of your personal data, data processing will be restricted for the period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of your data.
13.5 Data portability (Art. 20 DSGVO).
You have the right, under the conditions set out in Art. 20 DSGVO, to request the surrender of the data concerning you in a structured, common and machine-readable format.
13.6 Withdrawal of Consent (Art. 7(3) DSGVO).
You have the right to revoke your consent at any time in the case of processing based on consent. The revocation applies from the time it is asserted. In other words, it has effect for the future. The processing therefore does not become unlawful retroactively as a result of the revocation of consent.
13.7 Complaint (Art. 77 GDPR).
If you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you violates the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. You can exercise this right at a supervisory authority in the EU member state of your residence, workplace or the place of the alleged infringement.
13.8 Prohibition of automated decisions/profiling (Art. 22 GDPR).
Decisions which have legal effects concerning you or which significantly affect you must not be based solely on automated processing of personal data – including profiling. We inform you that we do not use automated decision-making including profiling with regard to your personal data.
13.9 Objection (Art. 21 DSGVO).
If we process personal data from you on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO (to protect overriding legitimate interests), you have the right to object to this under the conditions listed in Art. 21 DSGVO. However, this only applies insofar as there are reasons arising from your particular situation. After an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms. We also do not have to stop processing if it serves the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims. In any case – also regardless of a specific situation – you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing.
