We are very pleased that you are interested in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of US Consult GmbH. In principle, the US Consult GmbH website can be used without providing any personal data. If a data subject wishes to use our company's special services via our website, processing of personal data may be necessary. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

Furthermore, data subjects are informed about their rights by means of this data protection declaration. US Consult GmbH, as the controller, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.
The data protection declaration of US Consult GmbH is based on the terminology used by the European directors and regulators when issuing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

4. Collection of general data and information
The US Consult GmbH website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server's log files. The following can be recorded: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that use an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serves to avert risks in the event of attacks on our information technology systems. When using this general data and information, US Consult GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore statistically evaluated by US Consult GmbH on the one hand and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately 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.

Which personal data are transmitted to the person responsible for processing results from the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for their own purposes. The controller can arrange for the transfer to one or more processors, for example a parcel service provider, who also uses the personal data exclusively for internal use, which is attributable to the controller. By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned by the data subject's Internet service provider (ISP), the date and time of registration are also saved. This data is stored against the background that the misuse of our services can only be prevented in this way and, if necessary, this data enables crimes committed to be investigated. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to secure the data controller. As a matter of principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on serves to prosecute. The registration of the data subject with the voluntary provision of personal data serves the data controller to offer the data subject content or services that, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the data base of the controller. The data controller will provide each data subject with information on what personal data about the data subject is stored at any time on request. Furthermore, the person responsible for processing corrects or deletes the personal data at the request or advice of the data subject, provided that there are no statutory retention requirements. The entire staff of the controller is available to the data subject as a contact person in this context.
6. Contact option via the website
Due to legal regulations, the US Consult GmbH website contains information that enables us to contact our company quickly and electronically, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for the so-called electronic mail (email address).

US Consult GmbH offers users the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog located on the website of the controller. A blog is a portal, usually publicly accessible, on which a website, in which one or more people, who are called bloggers or web bloggers, can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties. If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the data subject, information on the time the comment was entered and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject are saved and published. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the data subject's Internet service provider (ISP) is also logged. This IP address is saved for security reasons and in the event that the data subject violates the rights of third parties by posting a comment or posts illegal content. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the person responsible for the processing, so that he could, if necessary, exculpate himself in the event of an infringement. The personal data collected will not be passed on to third parties unless such transfer is required by law or to serve as legal defense for the controller.

10. Legal basis for processing
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where 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 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 processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that 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 our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh them. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
11. Legitimate interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party
Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR is our legitimate interest in carrying out our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.
12. Duration for which the personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the period has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required to fulfill or initiate a contract.
13. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing
We will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information about the contract partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data that we subsequently have to process. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would result in the contract not being concluded with the person concerned. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of not providing the personal data.
14. Existence of automated decision making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling. This data protection declaration was created by the data protection declaration generator of the DGD Deutsche Gesellschaft für Datenschutz GmbH, which works as external data protection officer Straubing, in cooperation with the lawyer for data protection law Christian Solmecke.
