Your rights as a data subject

First of all, we would like to inform you about your rights as a data subject. These rights are in art. 15 – 22 EU-DS-GVO standardized. This includes:

  • The right to information (Art. 15 EU-DS-GVO),
  • The right to erasure (Art. 17 EU-DS-GVO),
  • The right to rectification (Art. 16 EU-DS-GVO),
  • The right to data portability (Art. 20 EU GDPR),
  • The right to restriction of data processing (Art. 18 EU-DS-GVO),
  • The right to object to data processing (Art. 21 EU-DS-GVO).

To assert these rights, please contact: The same applies if you have any questions about data processing in our company. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority.

Rights of objection

Please note the following in connection with the right to object:

If we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object to this data processing at any time without giving reasons.
This also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to direct advertising.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.
The objection is free of charge and can be made in any form, if possible to:
In the event that we process your data to protect legitimate interests, YOU can object to this processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

When processing your personal data, the provisions of the EU-DS-GVO, the BDSG and all other applicable data protection regulations are complied with. Legal bases for data processing result in particular from Art. 6 EU-DS-GVO.

Purposes and legal bases of data processing

We use your data to initiate business, to fulfill contractual and legal obligations, to carry out the contractual relationship, to offer products and services and to strengthen the customer relationship, which may also include analyses for marketing purposes and direct advertising.

Your consent also constitutes a permission requirement under data protection law. Here, we will inform you about the purposes of the data processing and about your right of revocation. If the consent also refers to the processing of special categories of personal data, we will expressly point this out to you in the consent.

Processing of special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9(1) EU-DS-GVO will only take place if this is required by legal provisions and there is no reason to assume that your legitimate interest in the exclusion of the processing outweighs this.

Disclosure to third parties

We will only pass on your data to third parties within the framework of the statutory provisions or with the corresponding consent. Otherwise, we will not disclose your data to third parties unless we are required to do so by mandatory legal provisions (disclosure to external bodies such as supervisory authorities or law enforcement agencies).

Recipients of the data / categories of recipients

Within our company, we ensure that only those persons receive your data who need it to fulfill contractual and legal obligations.

In many cases, service providers support our specialist departments in fulfilling their tasks. The necessary data protection contracts have been concluded with all service providers.

Third-country transfer / intention to transfer data to third countries

Data is only transferred to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) if this is necessary for the performance of the contractual relationship, is required by law or you have given us your consent.

Secure transmission of your data

In order to protect the data stored by us in the best possible way against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons, we use appropriate technical and organizational security measures. The security levels are continuously reviewed in cooperation with security experts and adapted to new security standards.

The exchange of data to and from our website is always encrypted. We offer HTTPS as the transmission protocol for our website, in each case using the current encryption protocols (SSL). In addition, we offer our users content encryption as part of the contact forms and for applications. The decryption of this data is only possible for us. In addition, there is the option of using alternative communication channels (e:b: the postal service).

Obligation to provide the data

Various personal data are necessary for the establishment, implementation and termination of the debt relationship and the fulfillment of the associated contractual and legal obligations. The same applies to the use of our website and the various functions it provides.

We have summarized details of this for you in the above point. In certain cases, data must also be collected or made available due to legal requirements. Please note that it is not possible to process your request or carry out the underlying contractual relationship without providing this data.

Categories, sources and origin of data

Which data we process is determined by the respective context: this depends on whether, for example, you place an order online or enter an inquiry in our contact form, whether you send us an application or submit a complaint.

Please note that we may also provide information separately in a suitable place for special processing situations, e.g. when you upload application documents or submit a contact request.

When you visit our website, we collect and process the following data:

  • Name of the Internet service provider
  • Information about the website from which you are visiting us
  • Web browser and operating system used
  • IP address assigned by your Internet Service Provider
    Files requested, amount of data transferred, downloads/file exports
  • Information about the web pages that you call up from us, including date and time

For reasons of technical security (in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server), this data is stored in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. F EU-DS-GVO. After 7 days at the latest, anonymization takes place by shortening the IP address so that no reference to the user is made.

Links Social Media

On our website you will find links to the social media services of Facebook and LinkedIn. You can recognize links to the websites of the social media services by the respective company logo. If you follow these links, you will reach SONIMA GmbH’s corporate presence on the respective social media service. When you click on a link to a social media service, a connection is established to the servers of the social media service. This transmits to the servers of the social media service that you have visited our website. In addition, further data is transmitted to the provider of the social media service. These are, for example:

  • Address of the website on which the activated link is located
  • Date and time when the website was called up or the link was activated
  • Information about the browser and operating system used
  • IP address

If you are already logged in to the corresponding social media service at the time the link is activated, the provider of the social media service may be able to determine your user name and possibly even your real name from the transmitted data and assign this information to your personal user account with the social media service. You can exclude this possibility of assignment to your personal user account if you log out of your user account beforehand.

The servers of the social media services are located in the USA and other countries outside the European Union. The data may therefore be processed by the provider of the social media service in countries outside the European Union. Please note that companies in these countries are subject to data protection laws that do not generally protect personal data to the same extent as they do in the member states of the European Union.

Please note that we have no influence on the scope, type and purpose of the data processing by the provider of the social media service. For more information on the use of your data by the social media services integrated on our website, please refer to the privacy policy of the respective social media service.

Links to other providers

Our website also contains – clearly recognizable – links to the websites of other companies. Insofar as links to websites of other providers are present, we have no influence on their contents. Therefore, no guarantee or liability can be assumed for these contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of these pages.

The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations and recognizable infringements at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking. However, a permanent control of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. If we become aware of any infringements, such links will be removed immediately.

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

Please note: If you deactivate the setting of cookies, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

You can change or revoke your consent at any time from the cookie declaration on our website.

The principle of data economy and data avoidance is observed, as only the data required for registration (e-mail address and password) is stored.

In this case, please use the “Forgotten password” function, which will send you an automatically generated new password by e-mail. No employee is authorized to request your password from you by telephone or in writing. Therefore, please never mention your password if you receive such requests.

Once you have completed the registration process, your data is stored with us for use in the protected customer area. As soon as you log on to our website with your e-mail address as your user name and password, this data will be made available for actions you perform on our website.
