General and mandatory information
Data protection

For the operators of this website the protection of your personal data is a very serious issue. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with statutory data protection regulations as well as this privacy policy.

Various items of personal data are collected when you use this website. Personal data is considered to be any information which can be used to identify you personally. This privacy policy explains which data we collect and how we use it. It also explains how we do this and for what purpose.

Please note that the transmission of data via the internet (e.g. via email communication) may be subject to security breaches. Absolute protection of your data from third-party access is therefore not possible.

The party responsible for processing the data on this website is:

Isabelle Gore
Landsberger Str. 48
12305 Berlin

Phone: +44 (0) 7741 16 82 36
Email: isabelle@poweleit.de

Responsible party is the natural or legal person who decides, alone or jointly with others, how and why personal data (e.g. names, email addresses and so on) is processed.

Withdrawal of consent to the processing of your data

Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You have the right to withdraw your previously given consent at any time. To do so, you can send us an informal email. This does not affect the lawfulness of our processing of your data prior to receiving your withdrawal request.

Right to object to the collection of your data under specific circumstances and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

“[You] have the right to object, on grounds relating to [your] particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning [yourself] which is based on point (e) or (f) of Art. 6 (1), including profiling based on those provisions.” You can find the specific legal grounds for our data processing in this privacy policy. “[Following your withdrawal, we] shall no longer process the personal data unless [we demonstrate] compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of [your person] or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.” (Objection in line with Art. 21 (1) GDPR)

“Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, [you] shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning [yourself] for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. … Where [you object] to processing for direct marketing purposes, [your] personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes.” (Objection in line with Art. 21 (2, 3) GDPR)

Right to lodge a complaint with a regulatory authority

In case of infringements against the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a regulatory authority, particularly in the member state of your habitual residence, workplace, or the place of the alleged infringement. This is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy. (Complaint in line with Art. 77 (1) GDPR)

Right to data portability

You have the right to have the data which we process automatically, based on your consent or in line with the fulfillment of a contract, transmitted to yourself or a third party in a commonly used and machine-readable format. If you request that your data shall be transmitted directly to a third party, we will only do so, when it is technically feasible. (Art. 20 (1, 2) GDRP)

SSL encryption

For reasons of security and the safe transmission of confidential contents, such as orders or inquiries that you submitted to us, the website operator, this site is using SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by looking at the address line in your browser that will change from “http://” to “https://” and show a lock icon.

With an active SSL encryption, third parties cannot read the data that you transfer to us.

Right to information, blocking, deletion and correction

In accordance with applicable legal regulations, you have the right to receive information about your stored personal data, its origin, its recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed, at any time and without any charge. You also have the right to have your data corrected, blocked or deleted. For further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time using the information provided in the legal notice.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data. To do so, you can contact us using the information provided in the website’s legal notice at any time. This right stands a long as the following applies:

  • If you are contesting the accuracy of your stored personal data, we usually need time to verify this claim. For the duration of the examination, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was or is unlawful, you can demand the restriction of processing instead of having your data deleted.
  • If we do not need your personal data any longer, but you require it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing instead of having your data deleted.
  • If you have objected to processing in accordance with Art. 21 (1) of the GDPR, your and our interests need to be balanced. As long as it is unclear whose interests override the other’s, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data.

Where you have restricted the processing of your personal data, with the exception of storage, such personal data shall only be processed with your consent, or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, or to protect the right of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or of a member state. (Art. 18 GDPR)

Objection to promotional emails

We hereby object to the use of our published contact details found in the website’s legal notice, for the purpose of sending us not expressly solicited advertising or information material. We expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the case of the transmission of non-solicited advertising material, such as spam mail.

Data collection on this website
Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information in the form of server log files, which your browser transmits to us automatically. These files contain:

  • type and version of your browser
  • operating system in use
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of the server request
  • IP address

This data will not be combined with data from other sources.

The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in optimising this website and displaying it without any technical errors, and for this purpose, server log files need to be collected.

Contact via email or phone

When you contact us via email or phone, your inquiry as well as the included personal data (such as your name) will be stored and processed for the purpose of dealing with your request. We will not pass this information on without your consent.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b of the GDPR, if your inquiry concerns the fulfillment of a contract or if the provision of prelminary measures to a contract is necessary. In any other case, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR) and / or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR) since we have a legitimate interest in dealing with submitted inquiries effectively. Data which has been transmitted to us in the course of an inquiry will be stored by us until you demand that we delete your information, withdraw your consent to storing your information or the purpose of storing your data becomes obsolete (e.g. once we have finished dealing with your request). Mandatory legal regulations – especially legal retention periods – remain unaffected.
