Your rights as a data subject

We’d like to start by informing you about your rights as a data subject. These rights are standardised in Art. 15–22 EU GDPR. They include:

• Right of access to information (Art. 15 EU GDPR),
• Right to erasure (Art. 17 EU GDPR),
• Right to rectification (Art. 16 EU GDPR),
• Right to data portability (Art. 20 EU GDPR),
• Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 EU GDPR),
• Right to object to the processing (Art. 21 EU GDPR).

To assert these rights, please contact: Ms Nicole Rennschmied, Managing Director, Blueberry Fields GmbH, dataprotection_at_blueberryfields.de. The same applies if you have questions about data processing in our company. You are also entitled to lodge a complaint with the data protection supervisory authority.

Rights to object

Please note the following in connection with the rights to object:
Whenever we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object to that processing at any time without providing grounds. This also applies to any profiling related to direct marketing.

If you object to having personal data processed for direct marketing purposes, we will stop doing so. Objecting is free of charge and has no specific form. If possible, contact: Ms Nicole Rennschmied, Managing Director, Blueberry Fields GmbH, dataprotection_at_blueberryfields.de.

If we process your data to guard legitimate interests, you may object to that processing at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
We will cease processing your personal data unless we can verify compulsory legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing is done to assert, exercise or defend against legal claims.

Purposes and legal bases for data processing

The processing of your personal data complies with the provisions of the EU-GDPR and all other applicable data protection regulations. The legal bases for the data processing are particularly revealed by Art. 6 EU-GDPR.

We use your data to initiate transactions, fulfil contractual and statutory obligations, implement contractual relationships, offer products and services as part of market research, and to strengthen customer relations, which can also entail analyses for marketing purposes and direct marketing.

Explanation regarding data privacy and the absolute confidentiality of your information during oral or written interviews

Blueberry Fields GmbH works in accordance with the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) and all other provisions of data protection law.
This also applies to repeat or follow-up surveys, where it is important to conduct an interview with the same person after a certain length of time and perform the statistical evaluation in such a way that the data from multiple interviews are connected through a code number.
The following also applies here:
Data that allow you to be recognised personally cannot be forwarded! The results are presented exclusively in anonymised form, just as they are with one-time interviews.
This means: The results allow no one to recognise the person to whom the information pertains.
Furthermore, your consent also constitutes permission under data privacy law. We would like to explain the purposes of data processing and your right of revocation. If your consent also relates to the processing of special categories of personal data, we will refer you to those categories explicitly in the consent, Art. 88 (1) EU-GDPR.

Special categories of personal data as defined by Art. 9 (1) EU-GDPR are processed only if this is necessary to comply with legal regulations and there is no reason to assume that your legitimate interests prevail in the exclusion, Art. 88 (1) EU-GDPR.

Forwarding to third parties

We will forward your data to third parties only to the extent required by law or with your express consent. Otherwise, we will not forward your data to third parties unless we are obligated to do so by compulsory legal regulations (forwarding to external agencies such as supervisory or law enforcement authorities).

Data recipients / Categories of recipients

Within our company, we ensure that no one will receive your data unless they need it to fulfil contractual or statutory obligations.

In a few cases, service providers support our specialised departments in fulfilling their assignments (freelance staff who invite you to a study). The necessary sets of contracts relating to data protection laws are concluded with all service providers.

Transmission to third countries / Intent to transmit to third countries

We do not transmit personal data to service providers or group companies outside the European Economic Area.


Storage period for the data

We store your data while it is needed for its respective processing purposes. Please note that numerous retention periods require that data continue to be stored. This especially concerns retention requirements under commercial or tax law (such as the German Commercial Code or Tax Code, etc.). Provided no further retention requirements exist, the data will be routinely deleted after the objective has been reached.

Furthermore, we may retain data if you have given us permission to do so, or if legal disputes arise and we use evidence within the restrictions of statutory periods of limitation (which can last up to thirty years); the normal statutory period of limitation amounts to three years.

Secure transmission of your data

We use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect the data we are storing against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction and unauthorised access. The security level is continually reviewed in cooperation with security experts and adjusted to new security standards.

Data exchanged to and from our website is always encrypted. As a transmission log, we offer HTTP for our web presence, always under application of current encryption protocols. We also offer our users content encryption as part of the contact forms and applications. Only we can decrypt these data. The option to use alternative paths of communication also exists (such as the post).

Obligation to provide the data

Diverse personal data are necessary to establish, execute and end the debt relationship and fulfil the associated contractual and statutory obligations. The same applies to the use of our website and the various functions it provides.

We have summarised the details to that end in the aforementioned item. In certain cases, data must also be collected or provided due to statutory provisions. Please note that processing your request or executing the underlying contractual relationship is impossible without providing these data.

Categories, sources and origin of the data

Which data we process depends on the context: This depends on whether you have placed an order online, entered a request in our contact form, sent us an application or submitted a complaint.

Our website provides a contact form which can be used for making contact electronically. If you write to us using the contact form, we process the data provided in that form for establishing contact and answering your questions and requests.

These data are your email address and the message field itself. Moreover, your IP address will be processed for technical necessity and legal protection. All other data are voluntary fields and can be filled in optionally (such as for answering your questions individually).

If you contact us by email, we will process the personal data communicated in that email only to process your request. If you decide not to use the offered form for establishing contact, no data beyond that will be collected.

On our website, you can subscribe to a newsletter at no charge. We will use your name and the email address indicated in the newsletter to send the personalised newsletter.

These mandatory fields are marked with an *(asterisk). Moreover, your IP address will be processed for technical necessity and legal protection.

Cookies (Art. 6 (1) f EU-GDPR / Art. 6 (1) a EU-GDPR in case of consent)

Our internet sites use cookies in multiple places. They help make our services more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and stored by your browser (locally on your hard drive).

These cookies allow us to analyse how you use our websites. And this lets us design the website contents to match user needs. Moreover, through cookies we have the opportunity to measure the effectiveness of certain ads and track their placement (for example, depending on thematic user interests).

Most of the cookies we use are “session cookies”. These are deleted automatically after your visit. Permanent cookies are automatically deleted from your computer when their period of validity (normally six months) has been reached or you delete them yourself before that period expires.

Most web browsers accept cookies automatically. You can change your browser settings if you prefer that the information not be sent. And you can still use our internet site’s services without restriction (except for configuration tools).

We use cookies to make our services more user-friendly, effective and secure. We also use cookies to help us analyse how users use our websites. This lets us design the contents to match user needs. Moreover, through cookies we have the opportunity to measure the effectiveness of certain ads and track their placement (for example, depending on thematic user interests).

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted from that computer to our site. Therefore, as a user you have full control over the use of cookies. You can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings on your internet browser. Furthermore,

cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time through an internet browser or other software programmes. All common internet browsers can do this.

User profile / Web tracking procedure

Our website does not use analysis programmes or other techniques for evaluating your user behaviour.

Online services for children

People under 16 may not transmit any personal data to us or issue a declaration of consent without the consent of their legal guardian. We encourage parents and legal guardians to participate in their children’s online activities and interests.

Links to other providers

Our website also contains clearly recognisable links to other companies’ internet presences. If links to other providers’ websites are available, we have no influence over their contents. Therefore, we cannot guarantee and are not liable for those contents. The providers or operators of the sites are always responsible for the content of those sites.

When the linked sites were linked, they were checked for possible violations of rights or the law. No illicit contents could be found at the time of linking. However, the contents of the linked sites cannot feasibly be monitored without a specific indication of a legal infringement. If we learn of legal infringements, we will remove the corresponding links without undue delay.
