We process personal data that we receive from you as part of our business relationship. These include:

  • Contact information such as first name and surname, business address, business telephone number, business mobile number, business fax number and business email address; 
  • Payment data, such as information required to process payment transactions or fraud prevention, including credit card information and card verification numbers; 
  • Further information as it is required in relation to a project or the execution of a contractual relationship with AIMO, which is voluntarily provided by our contact persons, such as project details;
  • Information collected from publicly available sources, information databases or credit bureaus; and 
  • As far as required in the context of compliance screening: Information for relevant legal proceedings and other legal disputes where the business partners are involved. 

In addition, we process data about your use of our offered media (eg access to our websites, apps or newsletters, clicked pages or entries) as well as other data comparable with the mentioned categories.

Why do we process your data (‘purpose of processing’) and on which legal basis?We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and for the following purposes: 

  • Communicating with you as a business partner about products, services and projects, eg to process your requests; 
  • Planning, implementation and administration of the (contractual) business relationship between you and AIMO (Article 6 (1) (b) DS-BER), eg to handle the ordering of services and the execution of projects, to collect payments, for accounting purposes, billing and collection of receivables and deliveries, and for maintenance to perform or correct errors; 
  • Conducting health days, customer surveys, marketing campaigns, market analysis, sweepstakes, competitions or similar promotions and events; 
  • Maintaining and protecting the security of our products and services and our websites, preventing and detecting security risks, fraudulent activity or other criminal or intentional acts; 
  • Compliance with legal requirements (Article 6 (1) (c) DS-GVO) or in the public interest (Article 6 (1) (e) DS-BER) such as: B Commercial and tax-related retention obligations as well as existing obligations to combat economic crime and money laundering, and enforcing existing contracts and asserting, exercising and defending legal claims. 

Who gets my data?
Within the company, those bodies may receive your data that need it to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations. Our processors (Art. 28 GDPR) can also receive data for these purposes. This maybe IT service providers, research companies, financial institutions or professional doctors and therapists, for example IT Services. These service providers operate only under the direction of AIMO and are contractually obliged to comply with the applicable data protection requirements. 

If necessary, AIMO transmits data to public sector bodies and institutions (eg, public prosecutor, police, regulators, customs, consulates, chamber of commerce and industry) in the presence of a legal or regulatory obligation.

How long will my data be stored?
If necessary, we process and store your personal data for the duration of our business relationship, which includes, for example, the initiation and execution of a contract or for the fulfilment of the contractual purpose. 

In addition, we are subject to various storage and documentation obligations, which result from the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the Tax Code (AO). The deadlines for storage and documentation are two to ten years. 

Finally, the retention period is also determined according to statutory requirement which, according to §§ 195 ff. BGB, can generally be three years and in certain cases up to thirty years.

Is data transmitted to a third country or an international organization?
Data transfer to third countries (states outside the European Economic Area - EEA) generally does not take place. In case this is necessary or required by law a separate agreement will be provided to you.

What data protection rights do I have? 
Each data subject has the right of access according to Art. 15 GDPR, the right of correction under Art. 16 GDPR, the right of erasure under Art. 17 DS-BER, the right to restrict processing according to Art. 18 GDPR and the right to data portability under Art. 20 GDPR. Regarding the right of access and the right to erase, the restrictions under §§ 34 and 35 BDSG apply. In addition, there is a right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority (Article 77 GDPR in conjunction with Sec on 19 BDSG).

Is there an obligation to provide data? 
As part of our business relationship, you only need to provide the personal information that is required to establish, conduct, and terminate a business relationship or that we are required to collect by law. Without this data, we will usually have to refuse to conclude the contract or to execute the project or to be able to complete an existing contract and possibly terminate it. 

To what extent is there automated decision-making in individual cases? 
In principle, we do not use fully automated decision-making in accordance with Art. 22 GDPR to justify and implement the business relationship. If we use these procedures in individual cases, we will inform you about this separately, if this is required by law. 

To what extent is my data for profiling (scoring) be used? 
We do not process your data automatically with the aim of evaluating certain personal aspects (profiling).
