This includes personal particulars (name, contact information, address, telephone, fax, e-mail, date and place of birth, gender), data relating to orders or to our complying with our contractual obligations, promotion- and sales-related data, and/or data classified into similar categories.
In addition, we process other personal data originating in previous personal, telephone or written communications initiated by data subjects or by us including information transmitted by telephone, e-mail, fax, and/or over the Internet.
Also, we process personal data acquired legally from publicly accessible sources (trade register, press, media or the Internet) in compliance with applicable laws.
3. Purposes of and legal basis for processing personal data
We process personal data in compliance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG, Germany’s Data Protection Act) and any and all other applicable laws:
a) To prepare or perform a contract (Art. 6 1 (b) of the GDPR)
We process data to provide our services, trading and supply of foodstuff, as part of the fulfillment of our contracts with customers / suppliers or to take steps at the request of data subjects prior to entering into contracts. The purposes of our processing of personal data depend predominantly on the subject of the respective contract and may include demand analyses and consulting.
b) To pursue legitimate interests (Art. 6 1 (f) of the GDPR)
Where necessary, we process data to pursue our legitimate interests beyond the purpose of fulfilling our contracts.
advertising, reviewing and optimizing procedures for conducting demand analyses for addressing customers directly, asserting legal claims and the defense of legal disputes, ensuring the security of our IT system, taking measures related to the security of buildings and facilities (e.g., access controls), preventing and investigating crimes, taking measures to manage our business, and extending our services and products.
c) To comply with a legal obligation (Art. 6 1 (c) of the GDPR)
We are subject to diverse legal obligations including, but not limited to, complying with tax-related controlling and reporting obligations.
d) Based on consent (Art. 6 1 (a) of the GDPR)
If and when you consent to our processing of your personal data for specific purposes (e.g., mailing your application documents, providing your business card, consenting to the transmission of our newsletter), such processing is legal. You can revoke your consent effectively immediately; notification in this regard need not be formal.
4. Recipients of your personal data
Our company will grant access to your personal data to parties needing such data to comply with our company’s contractual and/or legal obligations. In addition, for these purposes we may provide your data to service providers and agents contracted by us if and when such service providers and agents maintain confidentiality and comply with our instructions regarding data protection.
If and when we share personal data with external parties, we comply with our obligation to keep confidential all of our customers’ and prospects’ data which comes to our attention. We may share information concerning you only if and when we are legally obligated to provide information or based on your consent. Processors contracted by us must guarantee compliance with confidentiality directives and with the provisions of the GDPR. Processors contracted by us include providers of printing services, data carrier destruction services, EDP/IT support and maintenance services, scanning services and payment services, as well as legal professionals and tax advisors.
5. Transmission of personal data to third countries / international organizations
Data is transmitted to countries which are not members of the European Union or the European Economic Area (third countries) only to the extent required to fulfill our contracts, as mandated by law (e.g., tax-related reporting obligations), when we have been provided with a consent declaration, or as part of contract-based processing. If and when required in individual cases, personal data may be transmitted to a provider of IT services in a third country to ensure the functionality of our IT operations. If and when we use service providers in a third country, they must comply with written instructions based on the agreement regarding EU standard contract clauses and with the level of data protection applicable in Europe.
6. Duration of data storage
We process and store personal data for as long as required to comply with our contractual and/or legal obligations. If and when your personal data no longer is needed to comply with our contractual or legal obligations we will erase it regularly unless we are obligated to process it further for a limited amount of time to meet our commercial- and tax-law related retention obligations as stipulated by the Handelsgesetzbuch (HGB, Commercial Code of Germany) or the Abgabenordnung (AO, Tax Code of Germany). The retention and documentation periods stipulated therein generally range from between two and ten years. In these cases, processing is restricted so that once the purpose of the processing no longer applies, only the purposes of retention specified in the laws listed above as examples can be achieved.
Furthermore, individual interests regarding data retention may override the obligation to erase such data. In these cases, processing also will be restricted so that once the purpose of the processing no longer applies, only the purposes of retention can be achieved. Examples include the retention of evidence in line with the legal statute of limitations. While under §§ 195 et seq. of the Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch (BGB, Civil Code of Germany) the statute of limitations can be up to 30 years, the regular statute of limitations is three years.

Your personal data will be erased automatically within four months after the specific application process has been concluded.
This rule does not apply if and when erasure is contradicted by any legal provision, if storage is necessary to uphold a line of argument, or if you expressly consented to an extended storage period.
The provision of your applicant information is voluntary. You can revoke your consent at any time. If and when you revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data, we will erase your information from our applicant database.
