GeekSoft Consulting implements the guidelines regarding data security and confidentiality of personal information. Access to data is limited and technical (access rights, encryption, etc.) and organizational measures (training, authorization concept, etc.) are taken to protect the data against misuse, retransmission or loss that comply with current security standards.
The terms used in the following data declaration, such as data subjects, the person responsible, personal data, processing, etc. are based on the provisions of Art. 4 DSGVO – Definitions.
While Chapter I describes the handling of personal data during contact, business initiation, service provision or contractual relationships, Chapter II sets out what information is collected, stored and processed when you visit www.geeksoftconsulting.com / www.geeksoft.eu.
Our website does not offer a member area – so our visitors do not have to register.
Among other things, GeekSoft Consulting also collects personal data in the context of its business activities, if it is necessary to provide the services ordered and to initiate new and expand existing business (please note that in this case the entitlement of the interests according to DSGVO) 6.1. F)
The personal data may be disclosed for the purposes of Chapter 2 below, subject to strict observance of the confidentiality obligations:
A transfer of your personal data to third parties other than in Chapter 2 can only take place if:
In general, the personal data of those affected will be transferred to third parties if there is no reason to believe that the data subjects may have an interest in not sharing the data.
In the case of the integration of external service providers in the fulfilment of the contract, the data protection obligations are contractually transferred to the service providers.
GeekSoft Consulting is entitled to share non-personal, or anonymized and aggregated data with third parties for various purposes such as data analysis.
GeekSoft Consulting adheres to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. Therefore, the personal data of the data subjects are kept only for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated in Chapter 2, to fulfill the respective provision of services, or as long as provided for by legislation or statutory retention periods.
After expiration of the time limit provided by the legislator or after expiry of the corresponding purpose, the personal data are routinely deleted as long as they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.
The retention periods vary in length and are usually a period of 6 (manuals for lawyers) to 10 years (accounting documents, manuals for auditors) in justified individual cases even longer. If the personal data object is of different retention periods the longest period applies.
The hypocrisy over the provision of personal data is solely with the data subjects.
The persons concerned have the right to request information from GeekSoft Consulting at any time as to which personal data has been recorded, stored or processed by the person responsible (Art. 15 DGSVO).
The right to information can be restricted in cases where the information should disclose confidential information.
The persons concerned have the right to request the deletion of personal data from the person responsible in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR, if the data are no longer needed for the purposes for which they were collected, or the processing on the consent of their side which the persons concerned have already revoked. In this case, the processing of personal data is stopped, and the information is deleted from the systems and databases.
The right of cancellation may be restricted if:
If the data processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) DGSVO, the data subject may object to the processing of the personal data by the controller in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR. In general, the objection to the processing of personal data can be filed at any time.
The controller no longer processes the personal data unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing of the assertion, exercise or defiance of legal rights.
The data subjects may contact us at any time with the complaint to firstname.lastname@example.org or in chapter 1. listed postal address if you believe that the collection or processing of personal data violates data protection law or has been.
If you are not satisfied with the result, the Data Protection Inspectorate responsible for you is available to you in accordance with Art. 77 DSGVO. The list of competent supervisory authorities can be found at
