Categories of data / data sources

We process the following personal data within the framework of the contractual relationship and for the initiation of a business relationship: 

  • Contact data (e.g. first/surname of current and previous contact persons, if applicable, name affixes, company name and address (employer), telephone number including extensions, business e-mail address)
  • Occupational data (e.g. department including position) 

In principle, we will receive your personal data from you as part of the initial contact at our trade fair booth to initiate a contract. By way of exception, in certain circumstances, your personal data will also be collected from other sources. This includes case-related queries on relevant information with credit bureaus, in particular on creditworthiness and credit behavior.

Purposes and lawfulness of data processing

When processing your personal data, the provisions of the GDPR, local data protection laws and other relevant legal provisions are always observed. 

Your personal data is exclusively processed for the execution of pre-contractual measures (e.g. for the preparation of offers for products or services) and/or for the fulfilment of contractual obligations (e.g. for the execution of our services or for the supplier contract or order / order / payment processing), (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR) or if there is a legal obligation for processing (e.g. due to tax regulations) (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR). Personal data was originally collected for these purposes. 

Of course, your consent may also constitute a legal basis for the processing of your personal data (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). Before you grant such consent, we will inform you about the purpose of the data processing and about your right of revocation according to Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR. 

Leadec Beteiligungen GmbH is also interested in maintaining customer relations with you and by providing you with information and offers about our products / services by e-mail and / or mail. Therefore, we process your data in order to send you relevant information and offers (Article 6 (1) (f) of the EU-DS-BER). 

Your personal data will only be processed for the detection of criminal offences if the requirements of Art. 10 GDPR are met.

Duration of data storage

We will delete data as soon as your data is no longer needed for the above-mentioned purposes or in the event that you revoked your consent. Data will only be stored beyond the existence of the contractual relationship only in cases in which we are either obliged or entitled to do so. Regulations which oblige us to keep data can for example be found in commercial or tax laws. This may result in a storage period of up to ten years. For example, we may be entitled to keep data in accordance with our contractual agreement or under Article 18 of the GDPR. In addition, statutory limitation periods must be observed.

Data recipients / categories of recipients

In our company, we make sure that only those departments and individuals receive your data that need them to fulfil contractual and legal obligations. If we work for your company in several countries, it may be necessary to exchange your order-related data between your designated employees to improve our service quality. 

In many cases, service providers support our specialist departments in fulfilling their tasks. In this case, the necessary data protection agreements have been concluded with all service providers. Briefly describe procedures with service providers (eg shipping, suppliers, payment services, credit checks, etc.). 

Transmission to certain public authorities, e.g. tax authorities, possibly also law enforcement or customs authorities, etc. in cases provided by law.

Intention to transfer data to a third country

A transfer of data to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) only takes place if this is necessary for the execution of the underlying relationship or required by law or if you have given us your consent. 

We transfer your personal data to (a) service provider(s) or to group companies outside the European Economic Area, namely: Brazil, Canada, China, India, Mexico, USA and our external service provider located in USA. 

Compliance with the data protection level is ensured by: e.g. EU standard contractual clauses / binding corporate rules.

Rights of data subjects

Your rights as a data subject are set out in Articles 15 - 22 GDPR, and include: 

  • The right to access (Art. 15 GDPR),
  • The right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR),
  • The right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR),
  • The right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR),
  • The right to object to processing (Art. 21 GDPR),
  • The right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR). 

To exercise these rights, please contact: dataprivacy.UK@leadec-services.com.

In the event that we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you may object to such processing at any time for reasons that arise from your specific situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We will then cease to process your personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing such information that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is intended to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. 

If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object to this data processing at any time without providing the reasons for such objection. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with direct marketing. If you object to the processing for direct marketing, we will no longer process your personal data for such purposes.

Right to lodge a complaint

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

Automated individual decision-making
