General Information

1.1     Applicable Data Protection Laws

GLS/NXT is a business unit of GLS IT Services GmbH (hereinafter referred to as “GLS/NXT”, “we” or “us”) and processes your personal data in accordance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telecommunications Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG).

1.2     Information

GLS/NXT protects your personal data from loss and misuse by taking appropriate technical and organisational security measures. We reserve the right to improve these security and data protection measures if necessary.

If you send us an e-mail, it runs through the servers of the respective providers on the Internet, over which we have no influence. Therefore, it may be that the e-mail is transmitted unencrypted between these servers, so that it is basically readable by third parties.

1.4     Personal data

Personal data is information about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person (data subject). This includes data such as name, address, telephone number and e-mail address.

Information that cannot be associated with an identified or identifiable natural person – such as anonymized or aggregated data about several persons – is not personal data.

1.5     Legal basis for data processing

The processing of personal data is lawful if one of the following legal bases applies:

Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR):

The processing of personal data for one or more of the purposes mentioned is lawful if you have given us your prior consent to do so. A given consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future. The revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out until the revocation. This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that were given to us before the GDPR came into force, i.e. before 25 May 2018.

For the fulfilment of contractual obligations or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO):

In order to be able to fulfil our contractual obligations towards you or to initiate a contract, we also process personal data. The purposes of data processing result from the respective contract (e.g. purchase contract).

Due to legal requirements (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR):

GLS/NXT is subject to legal obligations, such as commercial and tax retention regulations in accordance with the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO).

Legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR):

If necessary, we process your data to protect our legitimate interests (e.g. to ensure IT security and IT operations).

1.6     Data transfer, recipients and third country transfer

Within GLS/NXT, access to your data is granted to those departments that need it to fulfil contractual and legal obligations. Service providers and vicarious agents used by GLS/NXT may also receive data for these purposes, provided that they comply with the applicable legal provisions.

The parties who may receive your personal data include group and carefully selected non-group service providers who are contractually obliged to provide services on behalf of GLS/NXT. GLS/NXT has concluded corresponding data protection agreements with these parties.

We only transmit your personal data to other recipients if this is required by law, if you have consented or if we are otherwise authorized to pass it on. If one of these conditions is met, public bodies (e.g. law enforcement authorities), among others, may receive personal data.

Personal data will only be transferred to a country outside the EU (third country) if this is expressly pointed out in the context of the respective service or if the commissioned service provider is based in a third country and the legal requirements for this are also met. In this case, we base the third country transfer on one of the following legal instruments:

Adequacy decision of the EU Commission for the respective third country
Agreement on EU standard contractual clauses and, if necessary, additional measures
Binding intra-group data protection rules
An exception under Art. 49 GDPR
Please note that due to American laws such as the Cloud Act, American authorities, such as intelligence agencies, may have access to personal data (such as IP addresses) that are inevitably exchanged with providers in the USA when a service is integrated.

1.7     Storage period and deletion

GLS/NXT stores personal data in accordance with statutory data processing regulations and in compliance with statutory retention periods for as long as it is necessary for the respective purpose. We determine the duration of the storage of the data in accordance with the following requirements:

Operational requirements: The retention period required for the handling of operational processes.
Legal requirements: Retention periods under commercial and tax law, which result, for example, from the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO).
After expiry of the defined retention period, the data will be deleted or destroyed. Detailed information on the retention period for certain processing can be found in the following sections.
