a) Personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, particularly by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
b) Person concerned
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller.
Processing is any operation or set of operations, performed with or without the aid of automated means, concerning personal data, such as collection, recording, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, deletion or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting the future processing.
Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, particularly for the purpose of analyzing or predicting aspects relating to the job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, whereabouts or change of location of that natural person.
Anonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separate and subjected to technical and organizational measures that ensure that the personal data is not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller or data controller
The controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or together with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. If the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for by Union law or by the law of the Member States.
h) Contract processors
The processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body responsible for processing personal data on behalf of the controller.
The recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to whom personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party. However, public authorities which may receive personal data during the course of a specific investigation mandate under Union or national law shall not be regarded as recipients.
j) Third party
A third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who are authorized to process the personal data under the direct authority of the controller or the processor.
Consent is any freely given, informed and unequivocal expression of the data subject’s will in a specific case, in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

d) Right of cancellation (right to be forgotten)
According to the European Directives and Regulations, any person who is affected by the processing of personal data has the right to immediate deletion of personal data concerning him/her by the controller, if one of the following reasons applies and the processing is not necessary:
- Personal data has been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which it is no longer necessary.

- The deletion of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.

- The processing is unlawful; the data subject refuses to have the personal data deleted and instead requests that the use of the personal data be restricted.

- The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.
f) Right to data transferability
Any person concerned about the processing of personal data has the right to obtain, in a structured, standard and machine-readable format, the personal data relating to him/her which has been supplied by the data subject to a controller.

In addition, when exercising their right to data transfer in accordance with Art. 20 Paragraph 1 of the DPA, the data subject has the right to obtain that personal data be transferred directly from one person responsible to another, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.

Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her that is carried out pursuant to Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DPA. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
In the event of an objection, cyan Security Group GmbH will no longer process the personal data unless we can prove that there are compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If we process personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such marketing. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it relates to such direct marketing.

h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling
Every data subject shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar way, except where such decision is (1) necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) authorized by mandatory provisions of law, provided that such provisions contain adequate safeguards with regard to the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) with the explicit consent of the data subject.
If the decision is (1) necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is made with the explicit consent of the data subject, we will take reasonable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the data controller, to express his or her point of view and to challenge the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may contact an employee of the controller at any time.

This is particularly the case if an applicant submits the relevant application documents to the data controller electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data is stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the data controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision, unless deletion is contrary to any other legitimate interests of the data controller.
