Categories / Origin of information

Within the framework of the contractual relationship and for the contract initiation we process the following personal data:

For business customers:

In principle, we will receive your personal data from you as part of the initiation of the contract or during the current contractual relationship. By way of exception, in certain circumstances your personal data will also be collected from other sources. This includes occasion-related queries on relevant information with credit bureaus, in particular on creditworthiness and credit behavior, export control, acceptance tests, certifications.

Purposes and legal bases of data processing

When processing your personal data, the provisions of the EU-DS-GVO, BDSG (new) and other relevant legal provisions are always observed.

Your personal data will be used exclusively for the execution of pre-contractual measures (e.g. for the preparation of offers for products or services) and for the fulfillment of contractual obligations (e.g. for the performance of our services or for the processing of orders and payments), (Art. 6 (1) (b) EU-DS-GVO) or if there is a legal obligation to process it (e.g. due to tax regulations) (Article 6 (1) (c) of the EUDS-GVO). For these purposes, the personal data were originally collected.

Of course, a data protection regulation may also constitute your consent to the processing of data (Article 6 (1) (a) EU-DS-GVO). Before grant, we will inform you about the purpose of the data processing and about your right of withdrawal according to Art. 7 (3) EU-DS-GVO. If the consent also relates to the processing of special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 EU-DS-GVO, we will explicitly inform you in advance.

IMO Group is also interested in maintaining customer and supplier relationships with you and providing you with information and offers about our products / services / events by e-mail and/or by post. Therefore, we process your data in order to send you corresponding information and offers (Article 6 (1) (f) EU-DS-GVO).

To detect crimes your personal data will be processed only under the conditions of Art. 10 EU-DS-GVO.

Storage duration of data

As soon as your data is no longer required for the above purposes or you have revoked your consent, they will be deleted by us. A preservation of the data beyond the existence of the contractual relationship takes place only in the cases in which we are obliged or entitled to do so. Regulations that oblige us to keep records can be found in the Commercial Code or in the Tax Code, for example. We may be entitled, for example, on the basis of our contract or in accordance with Article 18 EU-DSGVO. In addition, statutory limitation periods must be observed.

Recipient of the data / Categories of recipients

At our company, we ensure that only the departments and individuals receive the data they need to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations. The transfer of personal data within our group of companies is only to be carried out by internal departments and, if necessary, by external service providers. The necessary data protection contract was concluded with all service providers.

In addition, we are required by law to submit certain information to public authorities, such as: financial authorities, law enforcement and customs.

Rights of data subjects

Your rights as data subjects are standardized in Articles 15 - 22 EU-DS-GVO.

This includes:

To assert these rights, please contact: datenschutz@imo.de or Tel. +49 9193 6395- 0. The same applies if you have questions about data processing in our company or want to revoke a given consent.

You can also file a complaint against data processing with a data protection supervisory authority.

If we process your data in order to safeguard legitimate interests, you can always object to this processing for reasons that arise from your particular situation.

We will then no longer process your personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the purpose of enforcing, pursuing or defending legal claims.

If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct mail, you have the right to object without giving reasons; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct mail. If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.

Third-country transmission intention

A transfer of data to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) only takes place as far as this is required for the execution of the contract or order or required by law or if you have given us your consent.

We do not currently transfer your personal information to any service provider or to affiliates outside the European Economic Area.

Obligation to provide the data

For the inclusion or completion of a contractual relationship, you are obliged to provide certain personal data. This is necessary for the establishment, execution and termination of the contractual relationship and the fulfillment of the associated contractual and legal obligations. A performance of the contract is not possible without provision of this data.

Automated individual decisions

We do not use purely automated processing to make a decision.
