§ 1 General
Your personal data (e.g. title, name, address, e-mail address, telephone number) will only be processed by us in accordance with the provisions of German data protection law and the data protection laws of the European Union (EU). In addition to the processing purposes, recipients, legal basis, storage periods, the following regulations also inform you about your rights and the person responsible for your data processing. This data protection declaration only refers to our websites. If you are redirected to other sites via links on our pages, please inform yourself there about the respective handling of your data.
§ 2 Making contact
(1) Processing purpose
We process the personal data you provide us with by e-mail, contact form, etc. in order to answer and process your enquiries. You are not obliged to provide us with your personal data. However, we will not be able to reply to you by e-mail without your e-mail address.
(2) Legal basis
a) If you have given us your express consent to process your data, Art. 6 para. 1a) DSGVO is the legal basis for this processing.
b) Should we process your data for the purpose of implementing pre-contractual measures, Art. 6 para. 1b) DSGVO is the legal basis.
c) In all other cases (especially when using a contact form), Art. 6 para. 1f) DSGVO is the legal basis.
RIGHT OF CONTRIBUTION: You have the right to object at any time to the processing of data which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 f) DPA and which is not intended for direct advertising for reasons arising from your particular situation. In the case of direct advertising, on the other hand, you may object to the processing at any time without giving reasons.
(3) Justified interest
Our legitimate interest in processing is to communicate with you in a fast way and to answer your inquiries in a cost-effective manner. If you provide us with your address, we reserve the right to use it for direct postal advertising. You can protect your interest in data protection by passing on your data sparingly (e.g. using a pseudonym).
(4) Recipient categories
Hosting provider, delivery service provider for direct advertising
(5) Storage duration
Your data will be deleted if it can be deduced from the circumstances that your inquiry or the facts concerned have been conclusively clarified.
If, however, a contract is concluded, the data required under commercial and tax law will be stored by us for the legally specified periods, i.e. regularly for ten years (see § 257 HGB, § 147 AO).
(6) Right of revocation
In case of processing, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time.
§ 3 Web analysis with Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIP()“, so that the IP addresses are only processed in a shortened form in order to exclude the possibility of direct personal references.
§ 4 Social Media Plugins in general
Social buttons from social networks are used on our website.
This serves to protect our legitimate interests, which predominate in the context of a balancing of interests, in the optimal marketing of our offer in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. In order to increase the protection of your data when visiting our website, these buttons are not fully integrated into the page as plug-ins, but only by using an HTML link. This integration ensures that when a page of our website containing such buttons is called up, no connection is yet established with the servers of the provider of the respective social network.
If you click on one of the buttons, a new window of your browser will open and call up the page of the respective service provider, where you can (if necessary after entering your login data) press the Like or Share button, for example.
For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by the providers on their sites as well as a contact option and your rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the providers’ data protection information.
§ 5 Information about cookies
(1) Processing purpose
On this website, technically necessary cookies are used. These are small text files that are not permanently stored in or by your Internet browser on your computer system and only serve to ensure the functionality of the website. Other cookies remain permanently and recognise your browser the next time you visit the website in order to increase the user-friendliness of the website.
(2) Legal basis
The legal basis for the processing is Article 6(1)(f) DPA.
(3) Legitimate interest
Our legitimate interest is the functionality and usability of our website. The user data collected through technically necessary cookies and the long-term cookies described here are not used to create user profiles. Thus your interest in data protection is protected.
(4) Storage period
The technically necessary cookies are usually deleted when the browser is closed. Permanently stored cookies have a varying lifetime from a few minutes to several years.
(5) RIGHT OF OBJECTION
If you do not wish these cookies to be stored, please deactivate the acceptance of these cookies in your Internet browser. However, this may result in a functional restriction of our website. You can also delete permanently stored cookies at any time via your browser.
§ 6 Server log files

Name of the website accessed
Browser type/ browser version
Operating system used
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. A consolidation of this data with other data sources is not carried out.
(2) For security reasons (e.g. to clarify acts of abuse or fraud), log file information is stored for a maximum of seven days and then deleted. Data whose further storage is required for evidential purposes are excluded from deletion until the respective incident has been finally clarified.
§ 7 Newsletter

If you register for the newsletter, your e-mail address will be used for advertising purposes, i.e. within the scope of the newsletter we will inform you in particular about services of Bright Solutions GmbH.

§ 8 Integration of third party services and content
(1) Within our online offer, we set within our online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer in the sense of Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f. DSGVO) content or service offers from third parties in order to integrate their content and services, e.g. videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”). This always presupposes that the third-party providers of these contents are aware of the IP address of the users, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the contents to their browsers. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. We make every effort to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. Third party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may contain, among other things, technical information on the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visiting time and other details on the use of our online offer, as well as being able to be linked to such information from other sources.
(2) The following presentation offers an overview of third party providers and their contents, together with links to their data protection declarations, which contain further information on the processing of data and, in some cases already mentioned here, the possibility to object (so-called opt-out):
§ 9 Online presences in social media
We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to be able to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services.
We point out that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This can result in risks for the users, because the enforcement of the users’ rights could be made more difficult. With regard to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that they thereby undertake to comply with the data protection standards of the EU.
Furthermore, user data is generally processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created from the user behaviour and the resulting interests of the users. The user profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users’ computers, in which the usage behaviour and interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data may also be stored in the user profiles regardless of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).
The processing of users’ personal data is based on our legitimate interests in effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. If the users are asked by the respective providers of the platforms to give their consent to the aforementioned data processing, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 DSGVO.
For a detailed presentation of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the following linked information of the providers.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we would like to point out that these can most effectively be asserted with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. Should you nevertheless require assistance, you can contact us.
§ 10 Rights of the data subject
If personal data are processed by you, you are a data subject within the meaning of the DSGVO and you are entitled to the following rights against us:
1. right of information
You can request confirmation from us as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed by us.
If such processing has taken place, you can request information from us about the following:
(1) the purposes for which the personal data are processed
(2) the categories of personal data which are processed;
(3) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been or will be disclosed;
(4) the envisaged duration of the storage of the personal data concerning you or, if it is not possible to give specific details, criteria for determining the duration of storage;
(5) the existence of a right of rectification or erasure of personal data concerning you, a right to limit processing by us or a right to object to such processing;
(6) the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;
(7) any available information as to the origin of the data, if the personal data are not collected from the data subject;
(8) the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, in accordance with Art. 22 (1) and (4) DPA and, at least in these cases, meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing on the data subject.
You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you are being transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Art. 46 DPA in connection with the transfer.
2. right of rectification
You have the right to ask us to correct and/or complete any personal data processed concerning you if it is incorrect or incomplete. We must make the correction without delay.
3. right to limit processing
Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of personal data concerning you be restricted:
(1) if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time which enables us to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
(2) if the processing is unlawful and you object to the deletion of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of the personal data;
(3) if we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need the personal data to exercise or defend any legal claims; or
(4) if you have lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO and it has not yet been established whether the legitimate reasons to which we are entitled outweigh the reasons given by you.
If the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, such data may be processed – apart from storage – only with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a Member State.
If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above-mentioned conditions, we will not disclose your personal data to third parties.
4. right of cancellation
a) Duty to delete
You may request us to delete personal data relating to you immediately and we are obliged to delete such data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:
(1) the personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed
(2) You revoke your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
(3) You lodge an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21(1) DPA and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or you lodge an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21(2) DPA.
(4) The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.
(5) The deletion of personal data concerning you is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which we are subject.
(6) The personal data concerning you have been collected in relation to information society services offered, in accordance with Article 8(1) of the DSGVO.
(b) Information to third parties
If we have made the personal data concerning you public and we are obliged to delete them pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 DSGVO, we shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform the data controllers who process the personal data that you, as a data subject, have requested them to delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data.
The right of cancellation does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary
(1 ) on the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
(2) to comply with a legal obligation requiring processing under Union or national law to which we are subject or to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Article 9 (2) lit. h and i and Article 9 (3) DSGVO;
(4) for archival, scientific or historical research purposes in the public interest or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 DSGVO, insofar as the right referred to in section a) is likely to render the attainment of the objectives of such processing impossible or to seriously prejudice it, or
(5) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
5. right to information
If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or limitation of processing vis-à-vis us, we are obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification, erasure or limitation of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have the right to be informed about these recipients.
6. right to data transferability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided us with in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to have this data communicated to another person in charge without hindrance, provided that
(1) the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a DSGVO or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter b DSGVO and
(2) the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to obtain that the personal data concerning you be communicated directly by us to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to data transferability does not apply to the processing of personal data which is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in us.
7. right of objection
You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you which is carried out pursuant to Article 6 paragraph 1 letter e or f DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
We will then no longer process the personal data relating to you unless we can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection and outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, insofar as it is linked to such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for the purposes of direct marketing, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for those purposes.
You have the possibility to exercise your right of objection in relation to the use of information society services, without prejudice to Directive 2002/58/EC, by using automated procedures involving technical specifications.
8. right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. Revocation of your consent does not affect the legality of the processing that has taken place on the basis of your consent until revocation.
9. automated decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has legal effect on you or significantly affects you in a similar manner. This shall not apply if the decision
(1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and us,
(2) is authorised by Union law or the law of the Member States to which we are subject and that law provides for appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests; or
(3) with your express consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data in accordance with Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
With regard to the cases mentioned in (1) and (3), we will take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.
10. right to appeal to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which you are resident, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you is in breach of the DPA.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted will inform the complainant of the status and the results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 DSGVO.
