We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for
the management of the Kuehlbox. The use of the Internet pages of the Kuehlbox is possible without any indication of
personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal
data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing,
we generally obtain consent from the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be
in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations
applicable to the Kuehlbox (germany). By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public
of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means
of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.
As the controller, Philipp Giebel has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection
of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so
absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative
means, e.g. by telephone.
The data protection declaration of the Kuehlbox is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General
Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well
as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.
In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:
a) Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”). An identifiable natural
person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification
number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic,
cultural or social identity of that natural person.
b) Data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated
means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure
by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects
relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic
situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data
subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical
and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone
or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing
are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third
party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union
or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with
the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
j) Third party
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who,
under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she,
by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
2. Name and Address of the controller
Controller for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), other data protection laws applicable in Member states of the
European Union and other provisions related to data protection is:
63691 Ranstadt germany
The website of the Kuehlbox collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website.
This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating
system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites,
(5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the
accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, Philipp Giebel does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information
is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement,
(3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities
with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, Philipp Giebel analyzes anonymously collected
data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal
level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data
provided by a data subject.
4. Registration on our website
The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller with the indication of personal data. Which personal data are
transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject
are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller, and for his own purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or
more processors (e.g. a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the controller.
By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address—assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date,
and time of the registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the
misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed offenses. Insofar, the storage of this data is necessary to
secure the controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer
serves the aim of criminal prosecution.
The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary indication of personal data, is intended to enable the controller to offer the data subject
contents or services that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to change
the personal data specified during the registration at any time, or to have them completely deleted from the data stock of the controller.
The data controller shall, at any time, provide information upon request to each data subject as to what personal data are stored about the data
subject. In addition, the data controller shall correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as there are
no statutory storage obligations. The entirety of the controller’s employees are available to the data subject in this respect as contact persons.
5. Contact possibility via the website
The website of the Kuehlbox contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication
with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by
e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a
voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no
transfer of this personal data to third parties.
6. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data
The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage,
or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.
If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires,
the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.
7. Rights of the data subject
a) Right of confirmation
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the confirmation as to whether or
not personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of confirmation, he
or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
b) Right of access
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller free information about his or her
personal data stored at any time and a copy of this information. Furthermore, the European directives and regulations grant the data subject
access to the following information:
the purposes of the processing;
the categories of personal data concerned;
the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third
countries or international organisations;
where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine
the existence of the right to request from the controller rectification or erasure of personal data, or restriction of processing of
personal data concerning the data subject, or to object to such processing;
the existence of the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
where the personal data are not collected from the data subject, any available information as to their source;
the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in those
cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and envisaged consequences of such processing for
the data subject.
Furthermore, the data subject shall have a right to obtain information as to whether personal data are transferred to a third country or to an
international organisation. Where this is the case, the data subject shall have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards relating
to the transfer.
If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of access, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
c) Right to rectification
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of
inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to
have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning
him or her without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following
grounds applies, as long as the processing is not necessary:
The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
The data subject withdraws consent to which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, or point
(a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing.
The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for
the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.
The personal data have been unlawfully processed.
The personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1) of the GDPR.
If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by Philipp Giebel,
he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. Philipp Giebel shall promptly ensure that the erasure request
is complied with immediately.
Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking
account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other
controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication
of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required. Philipp Giebel will arrange the necessary measures in individual
e) Right of restriction of processing
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of
the following applies:
The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of their use instead.
The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment,
exercise or defence of legal claims.
The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the
controller override those of the data subject.
If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of the processing of personal data stored by
Philipp Giebel, he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller. Philipp Giebel will arrange the restriction of the
f) Right to data portability
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to
a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she shall have the right to transmit those data to another controller
without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, as long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to point
(a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and
the processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public
interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have
personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights
and freedoms of others.
In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact Philipp Giebel.
g) Right to object
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any
time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to
profiling based on these provisions.
Philipp Giebel shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for
the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If Philipp Giebel processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing
of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the
data subject objects to Philipp Giebel to the processing for direct marketing purposes, Philipp Giebel will no longer process the personal data for
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning
him or her by Philipp Giebel for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless
the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact Philipp Giebel. In addition, the data subject is free in the
context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by automated means
using technical specifications.
h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing,
including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her, or similarly significantly affects him or her, as long as the decision
(1) is not is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or
(2) is not authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the
data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on the data subject's explicit consent.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or
(2) it is based on the data subject's explicit consent, Philipp Giebel shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's
rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his
or her point of view and contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may, at any time, contact Philipp Giebel.
i) Right to withdraw data protection consent
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her personal
data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may, at any time, contact Philipp Giebel.
8. Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the
processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when
processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR.
The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries
concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the
fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person.
This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information
would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR.
Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered
by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a
third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection
of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator.
He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
9. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the
well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
10. Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period,
the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
11. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions
(e.g. information on the contractual partner).
Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us.
The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the
personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether
the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation
to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
12. Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
