Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG. Any use of the Internet pages of MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special services provided by our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Ordinance and in accordance with the data protection regulations applicable to MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations. By means of this data protection declaration, our company wishes to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, the persons concerned are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as telephone.
The data protection declaration of MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG is based on the terms that were used by the European Directive and Ordinance Giver when the Data Protection Basic Ordinance (DS-GVO) was issued. Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand both for the public and for our customers and business partners. In order to guarantee this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). A natural person shall be considered identifiable if he 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 one or more specific characteristics expressing the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing shall mean any operation or set of operations which is carried out with or without the aid of automated means relating to personal data, such as collection, recording, organisation, sorting, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or association, qualification, erasure or destruction.
Limitation of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, whereabouts or movement of that natural person.
Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the provision of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures ensuring that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
The controller or controllers shall be 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 laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or controllers may be designated in accordance with Union law or with the law of the Member States on the basis of specific criteria.
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation task under Union law or the law of the Member States shall not be considered as recipients.
Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct responsibility of the controller or processor, are empowered to process the personal data.
Consent shall mean any voluntary and informed and unequivocal expression of the data subject’s intention to consent to the particular case, in the form of a statement or other unambiguous confirmatory act by which the data subject indicates his or her consent to the processing of his or her personal data.
The person responsible within the meaning of the Basic Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the member states of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co:

The website of MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a person concerned or an automated system. These general data and information are 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 referrer), (4) the sub-sites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website can be recorded, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the content of our website, (2) optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) guarantee the long-term operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore used by MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG is therefore evaluated statistically on the one hand and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimum 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 the person concerned.
The data controller processes and stores personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the storage purpose or insofar as this has been provided for by the European directive and regulation giver or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the data controller is subject.
If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Body or another competent legislator expires, the personal data shall be blocked or deleted routinely and in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Every data subject has the right, granted by the European directive and regulation authorities, to ask the controller for confirmation as to whether personal data relating to him or her will be processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, he or she may at any time contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller for this purpose.
Any data subject involved in the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulation maker, to obtain at any time, free of charge, from the controller, information on the personal data relating to him which have been stored and a copy of that information. In addition, the European Directive and Regulation Body has granted the data subject access to the following information:
The data subject shall also have a right of access to information as to whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the person concerned also has the right to obtain information about the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she can contact our data protection officer or another employee of the data controller at any time.
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulation, to obtain the rectification without delay of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Furthermore, the data subject shall have the right, having regard to the purposes of the processing, to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary statement.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she can contact our data protection officer or another employee of the data controller at any time.
Any person data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European directive and regulation, to obtain from the controller the erasure without delay of the personal data concerning him or her, if one of the following reasons applies and if the processing is not necessary:
If one of the reasons mentioned above applies and a person concerned initiates the deletion of personal data stored at MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG, the data subject can contact our data protection officer or another employee of the data controller at any time to request this. The data protection officer of MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG or another employee will ensure that the request for deletion is complied with immediately.
If the personal data has been made public by MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG and our company is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 Para. 1 DS-GVO, MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG, taking into account the available technology and implementation costs, takes appropriate measures, including technical measures, to inform other persons responsible for data processing, who process the published personal data, that the person concerned has requested these other persons responsible for data processing to delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data, insofar as the processing is not necessary. The data protection officer of MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG or another employee will take the necessary steps in individual cases.
Any data subject involved in the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulation, to request the controller to limit the processing if one of the following conditions is met:

KG, the data subject can contact our data protection officer or another employee of the data controller at any time to do so. The data protection officer of MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG or another employee will cause the processing to be restricted.
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulation, to obtain the personal data concerning him or her provided by the data subject to a controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. It also has the right to communicate these data to another controller without being hindered by the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a DS-GVO or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a DS-GVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter b DS-GVO and the processing is carried out by automated means, provided that the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority entrusted to the controller.
Furthermore, when exercising his right to data transferability pursuant to Art. 20 para. 1 DS-GVO, the data subject shall have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one responsible party to another responsible party, insofar as this is technically feasible and insofar as this does not impair the rights and freedoms of other persons.
In order to assert the right to data transferability, the person concerned can contact the data protection officer appointed by MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG or another employee at any time.
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulation to object at any time, for reasons related to his/her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him/her on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DS Block Exemption Regulation. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG will no longer process the personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling reasons for the processing worthy of protection which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG processes personal data for the purpose of direct advertising, the person concerned has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If the person concerned objects to MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG for the purposes of direct advertising, MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the person concerned has the right, for reasons arising from his/her particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning him/her, which MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 DS-GVO, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the person concerned may contact the data protection officer of MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG or another employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his or her right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures in which technical specifications are used.
Any person data subject to the processing of personal data has the right under the European Directive and Regulation not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects upon him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar manner, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or national law or by the Member States to which the data controller is subject and which provides for adequate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is taken with the express consent of the data subject.
If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the person responsible or (2) is made with the express consent of the data subject, MarConsult Schiffahrt GmbH & Co. KG takes appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the person responsible, to present his or her own position and to contest the decision.

Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise his/her right to withdraw his/her consent, he/she may at any time contact our data protection officer or another employee of the data controller.
The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits the relevant application documents electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website, to the data controller. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude a contract of employment with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, unless deletion conflicts with any other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz – AGG).
The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data about the behaviour of visitors to Internet pages. A web analysis service collects data on, among other things, from which website a person concerned came to a website (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the costs and benefits of Internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The data controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for the web analysis via Google Analytics. This addition is used by Google to shorten and anonymise the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned if access to our Internet pages is from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website in order to compile online reports for us which show the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. When the cookie is set, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical process with third parties.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations in 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 person concerned is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance details 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-GVO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not predominate. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the data controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After this period has expired, the relevant data is routinely deleted unless it is no longer required for the performance or initiation of the contract.
We will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). It may sometimes be necessary for a contract to be concluded for a data subject to provide us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the data subject. The data subject must contact our data protection officer before the provision of personal data by the data subject. Our data protection officer will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the non-availability of the personal data would have.
As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
