The operator of these pages takes the protection of your personal data seriously. She treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Regulations (DSGVO) of the European Union (EU).

The use of Belén López Baos’ (hereinafter referred to as the site operator) website is generally possible without providing personal data. As far as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is being collected on the pages, this is, as far as possible, always on a voluntary basis. If a data subject wishes to make use of special services via these internet pages, the processing of personal data may become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, the consent of the data subject will be obtained in advance. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Regulation (EU-DSGVO) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection provisions applicable to the site operator. By means of this data protection declaration, the site operator would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, data subjects will be informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

The site operator, as data controller, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to them by alternative means, for example by telephone.

1. Name of data controller

The site operator Belén López Baos named in the imprint with all address and contact data is responsible in the sense of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (EU-DSGVO), other data protection laws valid in the member states of the European Union and other regulations with data protection law character.

2. Definitions

The site operator’s privacy statement is based on the terms used by the European regulator of directives and regulations when adopting the Basic Data Protection Regulation (EU-DSGVO). The data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for customers and business partners. In order to ensure this, the site operator would like to explain the terms used in advance.

In this privacy policy we use the following terms, among others:

a) Personal information

Personal data is all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as “data subject”). Identifiable is a natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special characteristics that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b) Person affected

Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

c) Processing

Processing means any operation or series of operations carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures relating to personal data, such as the collection, collection, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or modification, retrieval, querying, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, reconciliation or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.

d) Limitation of processing

Restriction on processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.

e) Profiling

Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting in the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, whereabouts or relocation of that natural person.

f) Pseudonymization

Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures that ensure that the personal data is not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Person responsible or person responsible for processing

The controller or controller shall be the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body which alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for his appointment may be laid down in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States.

h) Contractor

Contractor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the data controller.

i) Receiver

The recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to which personal data is disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data under Union law or the law of the Member States within the framework of a particular investigation mandate shall not be regarded as recipients.

j) Third party

Third party is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body other than the data subject, the data processor, the data processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the data processor or the data processor.

k) Consent

Consent is any informed and unequivocal statement of intent, in the form of a statement or other clear affirmative act, voluntarily given by the data subject for the particular case, that the data subject indicates his/her consent to the processing of personal data concerning him/her.

3. Acquisition of general data and information

The website operator’s website collects a series of general data and information each time a person or an automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. We may record (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 referrer), (4) the subwebsites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the Website, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service providers of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, the site operator does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. These anonymously collected data and information are therefore evaluated statistically by the site operator on the one hand and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order ultimately to ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.

4. Contact possibility over the Internet pages

Due to legal regulations, the website of the site operator contains information that enables quick electronic contact with her and direct communication with her, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the data controller via e-mail or a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data voluntarily provided by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.

5. Rights of the person affected

a) Right to confirmation

Any data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to require the controller to confirm whether personal data concerning him/her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, he may contact an employee of the controller at any time.

b) Right to information

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to obtain, at any time and free of charge, from the controller information on the personal data held concerning him/her and a copy of that information. Furthermore, the European regulator has granted the data subject access to the following information:

Furthermore, the data subject has a right to know whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. Furthermore, if this is the case, the data subject has the right to obtain information on the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he may contact an employee of the controller at any time.

c) Right to correction

Any person data subject to the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator to request the immediate correction of inaccurate personal data concerning him/her. Furthermore, taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he may contact an employee of the controller at any time.

d) Right to delete

Any person data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European regulator to require the controller to delete personal data relating to him/her without delay, provided that one of the following reasons applies and insofar as processing is not necessary:

  • The personal data have been collected or otherwise processed for such purposes for which they are no longer necessary
  • The data subject withdraws his/her consent on which the processing was based under Article 6 (1 a) EU-DSGVO or Article 9 (2 a) EU-DSGVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing
  • The data subject opposes processing under Article 21 (1) EU-DSGVO and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for processing or the data subject opposes processing under Article 21 (2) EU-DSGVO
  • The personal data was processed unlawfully
  • The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the data controller is subject
  • The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Art. 8 para. 1 EU-DSGVO

If one of the above reasons applies and a data subject wishes to have personal data stored by the site operator deleted, he/she may contact an employee of the data controller at any time using the contact details provided on the contact page. The employee of the site operator will arrange for the request for deletion to be complied with immediately.

If the personal data has been made public by the site operator and is responsible for it pursuant to Art. 17 Paragraph 1 EU-DSGVO to delete personal data, the site operator shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to ensure that other persons responsible for data processing who process the published personal data, to inform the data subject that the data subject has requested the deletion of all links to such personal data or of copies or replications of such personal data from those other data controllers, unless processing is necessary. An employee of the site operator will arrange for the necessary in individual cases.

e) Right to restrict processing

Any person data subject to the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European regulator to require the controller to restrict processing if one of the following conditions is met:

  • The accuracy of the personal data is disputed by the data subject for a period that enables the data controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data
  • The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to delete the personal data and instead requests a restriction on the use of the personal data
  • The data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims
  • The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing under Article 21(1) EU-DSGVO and it is not yet clear whether the data subject’s legitimate reasons outweigh those of the data subject

If one of the above conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by the site operator, he or she may contact an employee of the controller at any time. The employee of the site operator will arrange for the processing to be restricted.

f) Right to data transferability

Any data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to receive in a structured, current and machine-readable format the personal data concerning him/her which have been provided by the data subject to a controller. It also has the right to transmit this data to another data controller without obstruction by the data controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on the consent provided for in Article 6 (1 a) EU-DSGVO or Article 9 (2a) EU-DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Article 6 (1 a) EU-DSGVO. 6 (1b) EU-DSGVO and processing is carried out by means of automated procedures, except where processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller.

Furthermore, in exercising their right to data transferability under Article 20 (1) EU-DSGVO, the data subject has the right to have the personal data transferred directly from one data controller to another data controller, provided this is technically feasible and does not affect the rights and freedoms of others. To assert the right to data transferability, the person concerned can contact an employee of the site operator at any time.

g) Right to object

Any person data subject to the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator to object at any time, for reasons arising from their particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning them under Article 6 (1e) or (f) of the EU-DSGVO. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The site operator will no longer process personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling grounds for processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If the site operator processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to the side operator processing for direct marketing purposes, the latter will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the data subject has the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning him/her which is carried out by the site operator for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 EU-DSGVO, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.

To exercise the right of objection, the person concerned may directly contact any employee of the site operator or any other employee. The data subject shall also be free to exercise his right of opposition in relation to the use of information society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling

Any data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effect or similarly significantly affects him or her, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) is admissible under Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject and that such law contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) with the express consent of the data subject.

If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is taken with the express consent of the data subject, the site operator shall take appropriate measures, to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right of the data subject to obtain the intervention of a data subject, to express his or her own position and to challenge the decision. If the data subject wishes to assert rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may contact an employee of the controller at any time.

i) Right to revoke consent under data protection law

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the data subject wishes to exercise his/her right to withdraw his/her consent, he/she may contact an employee of the controller at any time.

6. Use of cookies

The website operator’s website uses cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser. Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified by its unique cookie ID.

The use of cookies enables the site operator to provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without setting cookies.

A cookie can be used to optimize the information and offers on our website for the user’s benefit. Cookies enable us, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his access data each time he visits the website because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping basket via a cookie.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our Internet site may be fully usable.

7. Duration for which personal data will be stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of this period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer necessary for purposes such as the initiation of a contract.

The controller processes and stores the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the data retention purpose or as provided for by the European regulator or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

If the storage purpose is not fulfilled or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted routinely and in accordance with the statutory provisions.

8. Legal basis of data processing

Art. 6 I lit. a EU-DSGVO serves the site operator as a legal basis for processing operations for which she obtains 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 a party, as is the case for example with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b EU-DSGVO. The same applies to such processing processes that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If the site operator is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, for example for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c EU-DSGVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.

This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I lit. d EU-DSGVO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f EU-DSGVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of the site operator or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. Such processing procedures are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47, second sentence, EU-DSGVO).
