We are very pleased about your interest in our company. CellSolutions GmbH attaches particular importance to data protection. The use of the CellSolutions GmbH website is possible without providing any Personal Data. However, if a Data Subject wants to use our company’s special services via our website, it might be necessary to process his or her Personal Data. If it is necessary to process Personal Data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the Data Subject.
As the Controller, CellSolutions GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of Personal Data processed via this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions inherently pose security risks and no absolute protection can be guaranteed. For this reason, Data Subjects have the option to transmit Personal Data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

Pseudonymization shall mean the processing of Personal Data in such a way 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 separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the Personal Data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
(g) Controller or Data Controller
Controller or Data Controller shall mean 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.

(d) Right to deletion (right to be forgotten)

The employee of CellSolutions GmbH shall arrange for the limitation of the processing.
(f) Right to data portability

He or she also has the right to transmit these data to another Controller without hindrance from the Controller to whom the Personal Data have been provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR or Art. 9(2)(a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR and the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures, unless the processing is 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, when exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) GDPR, the Data Subject has the right to have the Personal Data transferred directly from one Controller to another Controller, to the extent that this is technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

This also applies to any profiling based on these provisions.
CellSolutions GmbH shall no longer process the Personal Data in the event of an objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the Data Subject, or unless the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
If CellSolutions GmbH processes Personal Data for direct marketing purposes, the Data Subject has the right to object to the processing of Personal Data for such marketing at any time.

Notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, the Data Subject is also free, in connection with the use of information society services, to exercise his or her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
(h) Automated decisions in individual cases, including profiling
Any Data Subject affected by the processing of Personal Data has the right, granted by the European regulators, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly affects him or her in a significant way, unless the decision (1) is necessary for entering into or performing a contract between the Data Subject and the Controller, or (2) is permitted by the laws of the EU or its Member States to which the Controller is subject, and such laws contain suitable measures to safeguard the Data Subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is made with the Data Subject’s explicit consent.

If the Data Subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw consent, he or she may, at any time, contact an employee of the Controller.
- Legal grounds for processing
Our company relies on Art. 6(I)(a) GDPR as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. The processing is based on Art. 6(I)(b) GDPR 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 that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example, in cases of inquiries about our products or services. The processing is based on Art. 6(I)(c) GDPR if our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of Personal Data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations. In rare cases, the processing of Personal Data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the Data Subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and, as a result, his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing would be based on Art. 6(I)(d) GDPR. Finally, processing operations may be based on Art. 6(I)(f) GDPR. Processing operations not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that such interest is not overridden by the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the Data Subject. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, the European legislator considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the Data Subject is a customer of the Controller (recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).
- Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the Controller or a Third Party
If the processing of Personal Data is based on Art. 6(I)(f) GDPR, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

- Duration for which the Personal Data are stored
The criterion for the duration of storage of Personal Data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the deadline, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfillment or initiation of the contract.
- Legal or contractual requirements to provide the Personal Data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the Data Subject to provide the Personal Data; possible consequences of non-provision
We inform you that the provision of Personal Data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual arrangements (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a Data Subject to provide us with Personal Data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the Data Subject is obliged to provide us with Personal Data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the Personal Data would make it impossible to conclude the contract with the data subject. Before the Data Subject provides Personal Data, the Data Subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the Data Subject on a case-by-case basis 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 what the consequences of not providing the Personal Data would be.
- TLS encryption with https
We use https to transmit data in tap-proof manner on the internet (data protection by technical design acc. to Art. 25(1) GDPR). We can ensure the protection of confidential data by using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the internet. You can recognize the use of this data transmission protection by the small lock symbol at the top left of the browser and the use of the https scheme (instead of http) as part of our internet address.
- Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
