Welcome to CoreNetiX data protection policy!
Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of the CORENETIX. The use of
the Internet pages of the CORENETIX is 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 statutory
basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from 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 the CORENETIX. 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, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are
As the controller, the CORENETIX has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures
to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However,
Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may
not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via
alternative means, e.g. by telephone.
The data protection declaration of the CORENETIX 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 legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and
business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.
In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:
a) Personal data Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable
natural person (“data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly
or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number,
location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological,
genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
b) Data subject Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is
processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
c) The processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on
sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording,
organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by
transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction,
erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their
processing in the future.
e) Profiling of any form automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal
data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or
predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health,
personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
f) Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can
no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided
that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational
measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural
g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public
authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and
means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are
determined 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.
h) Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes
personal data on behalf of the controller.
i) Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the
personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may
receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member
State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities
shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the
j) Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data
subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or
processor, are authorised to process personal data.
k) Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of
the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies
agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

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 cyberattack.
5. Contact possibility via the website
The website of the CORENETIX 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
socalled electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a
contact form / e-mail, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored.
Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are
stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this
personal data to third parties.
6. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data
The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period
necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or
other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.
If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator
or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in
accordance with legal requirements.
7. Rights of the data subject
a) Right of confirmation Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to
obtain from the controller the confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or
her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of confirmation, he or
she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
b) Right of access Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain
from the controller free information about his or her personal data stored at any time and a copy of
this information. Furthermore, the European directives and regulations grant the data subject access
to the following information:
the purposes of the processing;
the categories of personal data concerned;
the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed,
in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations;
where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible,
the criteria used to determine that period;
the existence of the right to request from the controller rectification or erasure of personal data, or
restriction of processing of personal data concerning the data subject, or to object to such
the existence of the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
where the personal data are not collected from the data subject, any available information as to their
the existence of automated decision-making meaningful information about the logic involved, as well
as the significance and envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.
Furthermore, the data subject shall have a right to obtain information as to whether personal data
are transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. Where this is the case, the data
subject shall have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer. If a
data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of access, he or she may, at any time, contact any
employee of the controller.
c) Right to rectification Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to
obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data
concerning him or her. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall
have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a
supplementary statement. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she
may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten) Each data subject shall have the right granted by the
European legislator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her
without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without
undue delay where one of the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not necessary:
The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected
or otherwise processed.
The data subject withdraws consent and where there is no other legal ground for the processing.
The data subject objects to the processing pursuant and there are no overriding legitimate grounds
for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing.
The personal data have been unlawfully processed.
The personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State
law to which the controller is subject.
The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society.
If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the erasure of
personal data stored by the CORENETIX, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the
controller. An employee of CORENETIX shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied
with immediately. Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to
erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of
implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other
controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such
controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not
required. An employees of the CORENETIX will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.
e) Right of restriction of processing Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European
legislator to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the following applies:
The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the
controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and
requests instead the restriction of their use instead.
The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are
required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
The data subject has objected to processing the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the
controller override those of the data subject.
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 the CORENETIX, he or she may at any time contact any
employee of the controller. The employee of the CORENETIX will arrange the restriction of the
f) Right to data portability Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator,
to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a controller, in a
structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she shall have the right to transmit
those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data
have been provided, as long as the processing and the processing is carried out by automated means,
as long as the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public
interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller. Furthermore, the data subject
shall have the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where
technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.
In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact any
employee of the CORENETIX.
g) Right to object Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to object,
on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time. This also applies to profiling based
on these provisions. The CORENETIX shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the
objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which
override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or
defence of legal claims. If the CORENETIX 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 applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct
marketing. If the data subject objects to the CORENETIX to the processing for direct marketing
purposes, the CORENETIX 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 the CORENETIX for scientific or historical
research purposes, or for statistical purposes, unless the processing is necessary for the performance
of a task carried out for reasons of public interest. In order to exercise the right to object, the data
subject may contact any employee of the CORENETIX. In addition, the data subject is free in the
context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use
his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.
h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling Each data subject shall have the right
granted by the European legislator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated
processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her, or similarly
significantly affects him or her, as long as the decision (1) is not is necessary for entering into, or the
performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is not authorised by
Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable
measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not
based on the data subject’s explicit consent. 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, the CORENETIX 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
decisionmaking, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the CORENETIX.
i) Right to withdraw data protection consent Each data subject shall have the right granted by the
European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her personal data at any
time. f the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may, at any
time, contact any employee of the CORENETIX.
8. Legal basis for the processing
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 party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for
the supply of goods or to provide any other service. The same applies to such processing operations
which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries
concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing
of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations. In rare cases, the
processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of
another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company
and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a
doctor, hospital or other third party. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not
covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of
the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are
overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require
protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they
have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest
could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller.
9. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in
favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
10. Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory
retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long
as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter
into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of
failure to provide such data
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can
also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it
may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which
must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with
personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of 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 any employee.
The employee clarifies to the data subject 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 the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
11. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
