SONEM Solutions Ltd.
Processing of your data within the scope of the core activity of our company
We process your personal data transferred to us within the scope of the contractual and pre-contractual relations existing between us. The scope, type, purpose and necessity of the processing is determined by the underlying contractual relationship. For this purpose we store and process your data in the computer systems we use. The data processed by us includes all those data which have been provided by you for the purpose of using the contractual or pre-contractual services and which are required to process your enquiry or the contract concluded between us.
This may include the following data in particular:
Name and address
E-mail address and telephone number
The processing is limited to those data which are necessary and expedient for answering inquiries and/or for fulfilling a contract concluded between you and us. Personal data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of providing the service or within the framework of the organisation of our company for the handling of financial accounting and compliance with legal obligations. In this case, only those data will be transferred to external service providers that are necessary and expedient for the fulfilment of the contract or for the processing of financial accounting as well as the compliance with legal obligations. The processing by us is carried out in accordance with your instructions or the statutory provisions. Legal basis: The processing of your personal data as well as the transfer to third parties is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO and serves to fulfil the contract between you and us. Otherwise, we will only pass on data to third parties if there is a legal obligation to do so, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) DSGVO or if there is a legitimate interest in doing so, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. This is the case, for example, if this is necessary to pursue our claims. Deletion: Your data will be deleted as soon as the data is no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual or statutory duties of care and for dealing with any warranty and comparable obligations. This does not affect the statutory storage obligations.
We use an internet service provider to maintain our online presence, on whose server the website is stored (hosting) and who makes our site available on the internet. In doing so, the internet service provider processes contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, inventory data, meta and communication data on our behalf. Legal basis: The internet service provider processes the above-mentioned data on our behalf, Art. 28 DSGVO. The data processing is based on our legitimate interest in an efficient and secure provision of our Internet offer, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
Details of the contact details we hold on you
If you contact us via e-mail, social media, telephone, fax, post, our contact form or in any other way and provide us with personal data such as your name, telephone number or e-mail address or provide further information about your person or your request, this data will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. Legal basis: If you have made your request via our contact form, the legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. If you make your inquiry within the framework of contractual or pre-contractual relations with us, the legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. DSGVO. If your enquiry does not fall into one of the aforementioned categories, our legitimate interest in processing your data is to answer your enquiry properly and in your interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. Deletion: The personal data collected by us will be deleted if they are no longer required. We review the necessity every 2 years. You can also revoke the data processing at any time.

If you send the data by e-mail or via a contact form of our online presence, the processing is carried out electronically. If a contract of employment is concluded after the application procedure, we will store your data for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in accordance with the statutory provisions. Purpose: The purpose is to process the application procedure. Legal basis: The legal basis for the processing of your data for the purpose described above is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

This does not apply if legal provisions prevent deletion or if further storage of your data is necessary for the purpose of providing evidence, for example in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). The application procedure is deemed to be completed with the dispatch of the rejection to you. Prevention: In addition, you have the right to withdraw your application or demand the deletion of your personal data at any time.
You have the opportunity to comment on the posts we have posted on our blog.

Purpose: We evaluate the newsletter as described above to be able to measure a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of our newsletter. Legal basis: The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

Please send your objection to the contact address of the person responsible stated above.
