Signmesh GmbH (herein after referred to as “Signmesh“) takes data protection and protection of personal-related data very seriously. Therefore, we treat/process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal requirements (DSGVO, TKG 2003). Below, we describe how we process your personal data, as a responsible data protection officer.
Based on our business connection, we receive personal-related data from you. This data is processed – if it is necessary for the provision of our services or for the fulfillment of legal and regulatory obligations – together with personal data that we obtain from publicly available sources or data that are legitimately transmitted by third parties. We process data such as contact details (name, department, e-mail, telephone number), company data, interests and bank details.
We process the personal data in accordance with the data protection regulations.
The legal basis for the processing is pivotal to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures (Art 6 Abs 1 lit b DSGVO), or to fulfill legal obligations to which we are subject (Art 6 Abs 1 lit c DSGVO).
In addition, processing is completed by us or a third party due to legitimate interest. E.g. for the protection of employees and customers, for the further development of our company, of products and services in order to win back customers in order to prevent or combat fraud, and/or to prosecute or defend against legal claims (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR).
If you have given us your consent, the processing takes place for the stated purposes (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
You can revoke your consent at any time without affecting the legality of the processing, carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation. The revocation can be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, it is not possible that cookies can be tracked through the websites of advertisers.
