If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally seek your consent.
Theapolis, as controller, 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 can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection can not be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to submit personal data to us by alternative means, such as by post.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
4. Collection of general data and information
The website of Theapolis collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by an affected person or an automated system. This general data and information is 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 accesses our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-web pages, which can be accessed via (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet Protocol (IP) address, (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, Theapolis does not draw conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required in order to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) to optimize the content of our website and to advertise it, (3) to ensure the continued functioning of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the necessary information for prosecution in case of a cyberattack. This anonymously collected data and information is evaluated by Theapolis on the one hand statistically and further with the aim to increase the data protection and data security in our company, in order to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.
5. Registration on our web page
The data subject has the possibility of registering on the website of the controller, providing personal data. The personal data to be sent to the controller is derived from the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject shall be collected and stored solely for internal use by the controller and for his own purposes. The controller may arrange for the disclosure to one or more processors, such as a mailing service, who also uses the personal data solely 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 only so the misuse of our services can be prevented, and this data if necessary to clarify committed offenses. In this respect, the storage of this data is required to secure the controller. A disclosure of this data to third parties is not, as long as there is no legal obligation to disclose or the disclosure of law enforcement serves.
By registering the data subject voluntarily providing personal data, the data controller serves to provide the data subject with content or services that, due to the nature of the case, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change the personal data given at registration at any time or to have it deleted completely from the database of the controller, but only if the deletion does not conflict with any statutory storage requirements.
The controller shall, at any time upon request, provide information to each data subject as to which personal data about the data subject is stored. In addition, the data controller corrects or deletes personal data at the request or notice of the data subject, insofar as this does not conflict with any statutory retention requirements. Since at Theapolis less than nine people are constantly entrusted with the automated processing of personal data, we are exempt from the appointment of a data protection officer according to § 4f para. 1 S. 4 BDSG. All employees of the data controller of the data subject are available as contact persons in this connection.
6. Newsletter subscription
The Theapolis website gives users the opportunity to subscribe to a newsletter from our company. Which personal data are transmitted to the data controller when ordering the newsletter results from the input mask used for this purpose.
Theapolis may periodically inform its customers and business partners about company offers through a newsletter. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid email address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by an affected person for the first time for the newsletter dispatch in the double-opt-in procedure. This confirmation email serves to check whether the owner of the e-mail address as the person concerned has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.
When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration, as assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP). The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to understand the (possible) misuse of the data subject's e-mail address at a later date and therefore provides the legal safeguards for the data controller.
The personal data collected in the context of registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers of the newsletter may be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or registration, as may be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or technical changes. There is no transfer of the personal data collected in the context of the newsletter service to third parties. Subscription to the newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for the newsletter can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking the consent, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, directly on the controller's website, or to inform the controller in a different way.
The newsletters of Theapolis can contain so-called counting pixels. A counting pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in those emails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded pixel, Theapolis can detect if and when an email was opened by an affected person and which links in the email were accessed by the data subject.
Such personal data collected via the counting pixels contained in the newsletters will be stored and evaluated by the controller or its processor in order to optimize the delivery of the newsletter and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties. Affected persons are at any time entitled to revoke the separate declaration of consent issued via the double-opt-in procedure. After revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the controller. A deregistration from the receipt of the newsletter automatically indicates Theapolis as a revocation.
8. Contact opportunitiy through the web site
The Theapolis website contains information required by law to allow us to quickly connect with our company and communicate with us directly, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If an affected person contacts the data controller by e-mail or through a contact form, the personal data provided by the data subject will be automatically saved. Such personal information provided on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller is stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties.
9. Commentary on the website
Theapolis offers users the ability to leave individual comments on individual news items. If an affected person leaves a comment in the news section, not only the comments left by the person concerned, but also information on the time of the commentary input as well as the name and any existing profile picture of the person concerned are stored and published. The storage of such personal data is therefore in the interest of the controller, so that in the event of a breach of rights, this could possibly exculpate. There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties, unless such disclosure is not required by law or the legal defense of the controller.
10. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage or, if so required by the European legislature and other legislators in laws or regulations, that of the controller subject to was provided.

If Theapolis' personal information has been disclosed to third parties and if our company is responsible for deleting personal data as the person responsible under Article 17 (1) of the GDPR, Theapolis will take appropriate measures, including technical ones, taking into account available technology and implementation costs Inform other data controllers processing the published personal data that the data subject has requested that these other data controllers delete all links to such personal data or copies or replications of such personal data, as far as the processing is not required.

Furthermore, in exercising their right to data portability under Article 20 (1) of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to obtain that the personal data is transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and if so this does not affect the rights and freedoms of others. To assert the right to data portability, the data subject may, at any time, contact a Theapolis representative.

12. Data protection in applications and in the application process
The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing application procedures. The processing can also be done electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits the relevant application documents by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form of the controller, which is on the website. If no employment contract is concluded with the candidate by the controller, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after the announcement of the rejection decision, provided that deletion does not prejudice any other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interest in this sense, for example, a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
13. Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 I lit. A DS-GMO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract of which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GMO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case 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 the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GMO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS GMOs are based. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS GMOs are based. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly permitted because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, it considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence, DS-BER).
14. Qualified interests in the processing being pursued by the controller or a third party
Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GMO is our legitimate interest in conducting our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders.
15. Duration for which the personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.
16. Legal or contractual provisions 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 clarify that the provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contractor). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company concludes a contract with her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact our employees. Our employees will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of the non-provision of the personal data.
17. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
18. External serviceprovider
Theapolis uses the following external service providers to help optimize the service. Insofar as these service providers process data on behalf of Theapolis, agreements have been concluded with them which set the European data protection standards as binding and, in particular, prohibit the use of the data for other purposes
