We are very pleased that you are interested in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of the consciousness consulting. In principle, it is possible to use the website without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special company services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. 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.

Furthermore, data subjects are informed of the rights to which they are entitled by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller, Awareness Consulting 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 cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.

The website of the Consciousness Consulting 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 referrer), (4) the sub-websites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (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 used to avert threats in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the Consciousness Consulting does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack.

The awareness consultation offers users the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog, which is on the website of the person responsible for processing. A blog is a portal maintained on a website, usually open to the public, in which one or more people called bloggers or web bloggers can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.

Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to the data subject is also logged. The IP address is stored for security reasons and in the event that the person concerned violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal content by submitting a comment. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the person responsible for processing, so that he could exculpate himself in the event of a violation of the law. This collected personal data will not be passed on to third parties unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the legal defense of the person responsible for processing.

In the event of an objection, the Awareness Consultation will no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert or exercise or defense of legal claims.
If the Consciousness Consulting processes personal data in order to operate 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.

If the data subject objects to the Consciousness Advice to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the Consciousness Advice will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, for reasons arising from their particular situation, against the processing of personal data relating to them, which is carried out in the awareness consultation for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 Para. 1 DS-GVO to object, unless such processing is necessary to fulfill a task in the public interest.

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such 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 GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data could become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or 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. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. 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 protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is conducting our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.
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, provided they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner).
Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes personal data available to us, which must then be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide the personal data would mean 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 one of our employees. Our employee clarifies to 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 the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
