  • If applicable, further data (first name, surname, e-mail address, other voluntary details if applicable) if you send us a message and IP address and time if this message is an e-mail.
  1. Purposes of data processing

The collection of this data takes place

  • to be able to identify the winners;
  • to be able to notify the winners and send them the prize (e.g. sending tickets by post)
  • to contact the participants in the context of the administration of the competition or to reply to your message
  1. Legal basis

The data processing is carried out on the basis of your participation in the competition and is necessary for the appropriate organisation and implementation of the competition as well as the dispatch of the prizes in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) DS-GVO for the purposes stated.

If you send Recaro an e-mail or other communication, the legal basis for this, if and insofar as you have given your consent, is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DS-GVO.

The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail or other message is also Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO. If the message is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DS-GVO.

The processing of personal data from an e-mail sent to us serves solely to process the contact. This also constitutes the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data if it is processed on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f) DS-GVO.

  1. Duration of the storage of personal data

The personal data collected by Recaro for the organisation and implementation of the competition as well as the dispatch of the prizes will be stored until the expiry of the legal obligation to retain the data and then deleted, unless you have consented to a longer storage period in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a) DS-GVO or there is another basis for the storage in accordance with the DS-GVO. In individual cases, a longer storage period may be necessary for evidence purposes (e.g. in the context of a legal dispute).

The data from a message that you have sent us will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case when the respective conversation with you has ended. The conversation is ended when the circumstances indicate that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified.

After a revocation or objection (cf. section (8) Data subject rights and section (9) Information on your right to object pursuant to Art. 21 DS-GVO below), your personal data will be deleted within 7 days and Recaro will then no longer send you any further information, irrespective of contacting you in the context of other competitions or responding to further enquiries.

Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned below:

Insofar as this is necessary for the organisation and processing of the competition in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) DS-GVO, your personal data will be passed on to third parties. This includes, in particular, the forwarding of your address and telephone number to shipping service providers for the transmission of the prize won. This data may only be used by the third party in question to carry out the competition. If we use a processor, we will ensure that the processor is contractually bound to protect your personal data in the same way as we are.

Transmission to recipients in countries outside the European Union does not take place as a matter of principle.

  1. No automated decision-making and no profiling

Exclusively automated decision-making - including profiling - pursuant to Art. 22 GDPR means that machine-processed data directly lead to a computer-assisted decision, i.e. a decision made by data processing equipment, which is not subject to even partial evaluation by a natural person. According to Art. 4 No. 4 GDPR, profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data which serves to evaluate personal aspects of a natural person.

Recaro does not use automated decision-making in this sense, nor does Recaro carry out profiling.

  • to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 18 DS-GVO, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you or the processing is unlawful, but you object to its deletion and instead request the restriction of the use of the personal data or the data is no longer required, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or you have objected to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 DS-GVO;
