Liability for links
Our website contains links to external third-party websites over which we have no control. Therefore we cannot assume any liability for this external content. The respective providers or operators of the pages are always responsible for the content of the linked pages. The information offered therein does not necessarily correspond to the opinion of Lacrux. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal content was not recognizable at the time of linking. However, a permanent control of the content of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of an infringement.

The copyright and all other rights to the content, images, photos and other files on this website belong exclusively to Lacrux or the separately named rights holders. Their duplication, processing, distribution and any kind of exploitation outside the limits of copyright require the written consent of Lacrux. Downloads and copies of this website are only permitted for private, non-commercial use.
We are very pleased that you are interested in Lacrux. Data protection has a particularly high priority for us. In principle, it is possible to use the Lacrux website without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special company services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Lacrux. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of the rights to which they are entitled by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller responsible for processing, Lacrux 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 person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.
The data protection declaration of Lacrux Medien GmbH is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
a) Personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter the "data subject"). A natural person is considered to be identifiable who, directly or indirectly, in particular by association with an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special features, expresses the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person can be identified.
b) Data subject
Concerned person is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller.
Processing means any process or series of operations related to personal data, such as collecting, recording, organizing, arranging, storing, adapting or modifying, reading, querying, using, with or without the aid of automated procedures; disclosure by submission, dissemination or other form of provision, reconciliation or association, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
- Restriction of the processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim to limit their future processing.
Profiling is any kind of automated processing of personal data that consists in using that personal information to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular aspects regarding analysing or predicting job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, whereabouts or relocation of that natural person.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the need for additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller or person responsible for the processing
The controller or the person responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, body or body that, alone or in concert with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union law or the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for his designation may be provided for under Union or national law.
- The processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the responsible party.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, agency, institution or other entity to whom Personal Data is disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data under Union or national law in connection with a particular mission are not considered as beneficiaries.
j) Third party
A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or institution other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorized under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor to process the personal data.
Consent is any voluntarily given and unambiguously expressed in the form of a statement or other unambiguous confirmatory act by the data subject for the particular case, by which the data subject indicates that they consent to the processing of the personal data concerning him / her is.
- Name and address of the controller
The person responsible within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection character is:
Lacrux Media GmbH
Email: Redaktion @ lacrux.com
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
- Collection of general data and information
Corion’s website collects a range of general data and information when an individual or an automated system calls up the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The (1) 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, which are accessed via 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 used to avert threats in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, Lacrux does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. 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) 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 Lacrux 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 an affected person.
- Subscription to our newsletter
On the Lacrux website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise's newsletter. Which personal data is transmitted to the person responsible for processing when ordering the newsletter results from the input mask used for this purpose.
Lacrux informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about company offers. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the person concerned if (1) the person concerned has a valid e-mail address and (2) the person concerned registers for the newsletter dispatch. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by a data subject for the first time for the newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address, as the person concerned, has authorized receipt of the newsletter.
When subscribing to the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration, as assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP). The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of an affected person's e-mail address at a later date and therefore serves as legal safeguards for the controller.
The personal data collected in the context of registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively to send our newsletter. Subscribers to the newsletter may also be notified by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or registration, as might be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter or technical changes. There will be no transfer of the personal data collected as part of the newsletter service to third parties. Subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for the newsletter dispatch can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking the consent, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, directly on the controller's website, or to inform the controller in a different way.
- Newsletter tracking
The Lacrux newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in e-mails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, LACRUX can see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.
Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the person responsible for processing in order to optimize the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant separate declaration of consent given via the double opt-in procedure. After a revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the person responsible for processing. Lacrux automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
- Contact via the website
Due to legal regulations, the Lacrux website contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a person concerned contacts the person responsible for processing by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned will be automatically saved. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
- Comments in the blog on the website
Lacrux offers users the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog, which is on the website of the person responsible for processing. A blog is a portal maintained on a website, usually open to the public, in which one or more people 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 an affected person leaves a comment in the blog published on this website, not only the comments left by the person concerned, but also information on the time of the commentary input and the username (pseudonym) chosen by the person concerned are saved and published. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address is made for security reasons and in the event that the data subject violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal contents by submitting a comment. The storage of such personal data is therefore in the own interest of the controller, so that he could exculpate in case of infringement. There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties, unless such disclosure is not required by law or the legal defense of the controller.
- Subscribe to comments in the blog on the website
The comments made on the Lacrux blog can generally be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, it is possible for a commenter to subscribe to the comments that follow their comment on a specific blog post.
If an affected person decides to subscribe to the option to comment, the controller will send an automatic confirmation email to double-check whether the owner of the specified email address for that person is actually checking the email Option has been decided. The option to subscribe to comments can be terminated at any time.
- Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage or, as the case may be, by the European directives or regulations or by any other legislator in laws or regulations which the controller was provided for.

If that is the case, then the data subject has the right to obtain information about the appropriate guarantees in connection with the transfer.

- d) Right to deletion (right to be forgotten)
Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European Directives and Regulators to require the controller to immediately delete the personal data concerning him, provided that one of the following reasons is satisfied and the processing is not required:
- The personal data has been collected for such purposes or otherwise processed for which they are no longer necessary.

If Lacrux has made the personal data public and our company, as the person responsible, is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 Para. 1 DS-GVO, Lacrux will take appropriate measures, including technical ones, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs to inform other persons responsible for data processing who process the published personal data that the person concerned has requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data from these other persons responsible for data processing, insofar as the processing is not required. An employees of Lacrux will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.
- e) Right to restriction of processing
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European directive and regulatory authority, to require the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions applies:
- The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period of time that enables the 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 the restriction of the use of personal data.

f) Right to data portability

In addition, in exercising their right to data portability under Article 20 (1 DS-GVO), the data subject has the right to obtain that the personal data are transmitted directly from one controller to another, insofar as this is technically feasible and if so this does not affect the rights and freedoms of others.
In order to assert the right to data transferability, the person concerned can contact an employee of Lacrux at any time.
g) Right to object
Any person affected by the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European Directive and Regulators, at any time, for reasons arising out of their particular situation, against the processing of personal data pertaining to Article 6 (1, e) e or f DS-GVO takes an objection. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
Lacrux will no longer process the personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims .
If Lacrux processes personal data in order to operate direct advertising, the person concerned 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 associated with such direct advertising.

h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, as granted by the European directives and regulations, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has a legal effect on it or, in a similar manner, significantly affects it; if the decision (1) is not required for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is permitted by Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject or (3) with the express consent of the data subject.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject's explicit consent, Lacrux shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

If the data subject wishes to assert their right to withdraw consent, they may, at any time, contact an employee of the controller.
- Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 I lit. A DS-GMO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract of which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GMO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GMO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required 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 premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GMO are based. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GMOs are based. On this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly allowed to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. It considered in that regard that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
- Authorized interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party
Our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders, if the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GMO.
- Duration for which the personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.
- 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 non-provision
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (eg tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (eg information about the contracting party). Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the individual 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 the non-provision of the personal data.
- Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
