This information may also be transferred to third parties insofar as this is legally prescribed or insofar as third parties process this data on our behalf. Under no circumstances will your IP address be combined with other Google data. The IP addresses will be pseudonymized to make personal identification impossible (IP masking).

6. Recipients of personal data and transfer

The recipient of the data is Arno Arnold GmbH. We exclusively process your personal data for the purposes outlined in this privacy policy. We will only transfer your personal data to third parties if:

  • You have granted us your explicit content to do so,
  • Processing is required in order to handle a contract with you,
  • Processing is necessary in order to fulfill a legal obligation, or

If processing is necessary to preserve legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest in the non-transfer of your data that merits protection. Your data will not be transferred to third parties for any other purposes except for the intended purposes.

We will only store the data contained in your contact inquiry as long as this is required by the given purpose of processing or a legal foundation of a different nature.

To assert one of these outlined rights, please promptly send us a corresponding message. In this case, we reserve the right to take suitable and appropriate measures to confirm your identity. In case of a withdrawal of consent to the processing of your personal data, the legality of the processing which occurred before consent was withdrawn on the basis of that consent will not be affected. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. The competent authority for Arno Arnold GmbH is the data protection authority for the state of Hessen (https://datenschutz.hessen.de).
