III. General remarks on data processing

1. Scope of the processing of personal data

We use your personal data in the way described in this Privacy Policy in order to make our services available, to respond to your enquiries, and to the extent it is legally permissible or required or to assist in legal or criminal investigations. Furthermore, we may anonymize and aggregate data collected via this website for statistical purposes to expand our product portfolio and improve our services.

2. With whom do we share your personal data?

We may store your personal data or otherwise pass it on to our affiliates or further trustworthy business partners, who perform services in our name, for example, for technical support to evaluate the usefulness of this website for marketing purposes or other types of service provision. We have concluded contracts with these parties to ensure that personal data is processed in accordance with applicable data protection laws, on the basis of our instructions, in compliance with this Privacy Policy, and other suitable measures regarding confidentiality and security.

We may pass on your personal data to these parties and other third parties exclusively to the required extent in order to render the services that you have requested or authorized and to protect your and our rights, property or security or, if we are obligated to do so based on applicable laws, orders by courts or other authorities, or if this disclosure is required in order to assist in legal or criminal investigations or court proceedings.

Please note that the companies of the Kuehne+Nagel Group as well as authorities, customers and suppliers to whom we may pass on your personal data, may be domiciled outside of your home country, and potentially also in countries with data protection laws that may differ from those applicable in the country where you are domiciled. In such cases, we will ensure that suitable measures for the protection of your personal data are taken by introducing suitable legal mechanisms, e.g. EU standard contractual clauses. You can find a copy of the EU standard contractual clauses at: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/standard-contractual-clauses-scc_en.

3. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain a declaration of consent from the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) point a) EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

In the processing of personal data that is required for the fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) point b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing that is required to conduct pre-contractual measures.

Where processing of personal data is required for the fulfillment of a legal obligation imposed on our company, Art. 6 (1) point c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the case that vital interests of the data subjects or another natural person necessitate the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) point d) GDPR serves as the legal basis. If the processing serves to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, civil rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the interest mentioned first, Art. 6 (1) point f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

4. Data erasure and period of storage

The personal data of the data subjects will be erased or blocked as soon as the purpose for storage it ceases to apply. Data may also be stored beyond this point in time if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in directives, laws and other regulations under EU law, which apply to the data controller. The data will also be blocked or erased when a storage period expires that is prescribed by said standards, unless there is a necessity for the continued storage of the data for a contract conclusion or contract fulfillment.

 You have the right not to be subjected to a decision that is exclusively based on automated processing – including profiling – which has a legal effect in relation to you or which causes similar significant disadvantages for you. This does not apply if the decision:

(1) Is required for the conclusion or the fulfilment of a contract concluded between you and the data controller;

(2) Is permissible based on the legal regulations of the EU or the Member States that apply to the data controller and if these legal regulations contain appropriate measures to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests; or

(3) Is made with your explicit consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 (1) GDPR, unless Art. 9 (2) point a) or point g) applies and appropriate measures for the protection of rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests have been taken. Regarding the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the data controller will take appropriate measures to protect rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, which includes at least the right of a person of [sic] the data controller to exert its influence, to present own standpoints and to challenge the decision.

10. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or in-court appeal, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your domicile, your workplace or the place of the suspected violation if you believe that the processing of personal data relating to you violates the GDPR. The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged will inform the complainant of the status and the results of the complaint including the possibility of appeal in court pursuant to Art. 78 GDPR.

XI. Report of data breaches

Data breaches can be reported at any time to privacy@kuehne-nagel.com.

A data breach means a breach of security that leads to the accidental or illegal destruction, loss or modification, unauthorized disclosure or unauthorized access of personal data, which is transmitted, stored or otherwise processed us or a third party contracted by it.

XII. Minors

Persons younger than 18 years of age should not transmit any personal data without the agreement of their parents or legal guardians. According to Art. 8 GDPR, children aged 16 years or younger may give such consent only with the agreement of their parents or legal guardians. Personal data of minors is not knowingly collected and processed.
