We would like to use the information below to provide you “data subject” with an overview of our processing of your personal data and your rights under data protection law.
2. Data controller
The data controller, as defined by the GDPR, is:
Flatten IT-Consulting GmbH
Telefon: +49-221 – 29 29 94 – 0
Telefax: +49-221 – 29 29 94 – 99
Data controller‘s representative:
Prof. Dr. Roland Künzel
3. Data protection officer
You can reach our external data protection officer as follows:
Dipl.-Ing. Klaus Pampuch
You may contact our data protection officer directly at any time if you have any questions or suggestions regarding data protection.
4.1 SSL/TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login details or contact requests that you send to us as the website operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by your browser?s address bar reading “https://” instead of “http://” and the lock symbol in the browser bar.
We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.
4.2 Data collection when visiting the website
If you only use our website for informational purposes, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the data your browser sends our server (in what is known as “server log files”). Our website collects a range of general data and information each time you access a website or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server?s log files. It may be collected.
1. the browser types and versions used,
2. the operating system used by the accessing system,
3. the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (called a referrer),
4. the sub-pages accessed via an accessing system on our website,
5. the date and time the website is accessed,
6. an internet protocol address (IP address) and
7. the accessing system’s internet service provider.
No conclusions are drawn about you when using this general data and information. Instead, this information is needed to
1. properly deliver our website content,
2. to optimise the content of the website as well as to advertise it,
3. to ensure the continued functioning of our information technology systems and our website?s technology as well as to
4. provide the information necessary for law enforcement authorities to prosecute in the event of a cyber-attack.
This collected data and information is therefore statistically analysed and further analysed by us with the aim of increasing data protection and data security within our company to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data being processed by us. The data from the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is based on the purposes listed above for the collection of data.
5. Our activities in social networks
To allow us to communicate with you on social networks and inform you about our services, we run our own pages on these social networks. If you visit one of our social media pages, we and the provider of the social media network are joint controllers (Art. 26 GDPR) regarding to the processing operations triggered thereby, which concern personal data.
We are not the original provider of these pages, but only use them within the scope of the options offered to us by the respective providers
We would therefore like to point out as a precautionary measure that your data may also be processed outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area. Use of these networks may therefore involve data protection risks for you since the protection of your rights may be difficult, e.g. your rights to information, erasure, objection, etc. Processing on social networks frequently takes place directly for advertising purposes or for the analysis of user behaviour by network providers, and we have no control over this. If the provider creates user profiles, cookies are often used or user behaviour may be assigned directly to your own member profile on the respective social network (if you are logged in).
The processing operations of personal data described are carried out in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of the respective provider in order to communicate with you in a timely manner or to inform you about our services. If you have to grant your consent to the respective providers to process your data as a user, the legal basis for this processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR in conjunction with Article 7 GDPR.
Since we have no access to these providers? databases, we would like to point out that you would be best placed to exercise your rights (e.g. to information, rectification, erasure, etc.) directly with the respective provider. More information on the processing of your data on social networks and your options for exercising your right to object or your right of revocation (opt out) is listed below for each of the social network providers we use:
(Jointly) Data controller responsible for data processing in Germany:
XING AG, Dammtorstrasse 29?32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany

6. Plugins and other services
6.1 Google Maps
We use Google Maps (API) on our website, provided through Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive maps to visually display geographic information. For example, by using this service, you can view our location and make it easier for you to reach us.
When you access sub-pages in which a Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transferred to Google’s servers in the US and stored there. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to or whether you have no user account with them at all. When you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not want your profile associated with Google, you will need to log out of your Google account. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and analysis it. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right.
These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.
