We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of the UNASDG. The use of the Internet pages of the UNASDG is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the UNASDG. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller, the UNASDG has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always be vulnerable to security risks, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, e.g. by telephone.
The data protection declaration of the UNASDG is based on the notions used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would first like to explain the terminology used.
In this data protection declaration, we use the following terms, among others.
a) Personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
b) Data subject
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data or on a set of personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person's job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller or person responsible for processing.
The controller or data processor is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, public bodies that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients; the processing of such data by such public bodies shall be carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection legislation, in line with the purpose of the processing.
j) Third Party
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who are authorized to process personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.
The data subject's consent is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of his or her wishes by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement, by means of a statement or unambiguous affirmative act, to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
2. name and address of the data controller
The controller within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), other data protection laws applicable in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of data protection law is:
UNASDG Finance Ltd.
71-75 Shelton Street
London WC2H 9JQ, United Kingdom
E-mail: mail (at) unasdg.com
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. In addition, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
4. collection of general data and information
The website of the UNASDG collects a series of general data and information with each call-up of the website by a data subject or automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. This information is rather required in order to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) optimize the contents of our website as well as the advertising for these, (3) ensure the permanent operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website as well as (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.
When using these general data and information, the UNASDG does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed (1) to deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) to optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for these, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, the UNASDG analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
5. contact possibility via the website
The website of the UNASDG contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or by using a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. Such personal data will not be disclosed to third parties.
6 Routine deletion and blocking of personal data.
The controller processes and stores the personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or if this has been provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.
If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
7. rights of the data subject
a) Right to confirmation
Every data subject has the right, granted by the European legislator, to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
b) Right of access
Every data subject has the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller, at any time and free of charge, information about the data stored about him or her and a copy of this information. In addition, European directives and regulations grant the data subject access to the following information:
o the purposes of the processing;
o the categories of personal data concerned;
o the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organizations;
o where possible, the intended period for which the personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining this period
o the existence of the right to obtain from the controller the rectification or erasure of personal data or the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning the data subject or to object to such processing;
o the existence of the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
o if the personal data have not been collected from the data subject, any available information about their origin;
o the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in such cases, meaningful information about the underlying logic and the significance and likely consequences of such processing for the data subject.
Furthermore, the data subject has the right to obtain information as to whether personal data are transferred to a third country or to an international organization. If this is the case, the data subject has the right to be informed about the appropriate safeguards in connection with the transfer.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to information, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.
c) Right of rectification
Every data subject has the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller, without undue delay, the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. The data subject has the right, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to request that incomplete personal data be completed, including by means of a supplementary declaration.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
d) Right to erasure (right to be forgotten).
Every data subject has the right, granted by the European legislator, to obtain from the controller the erasure without delay of personal data concerning him or her, and the controller is obliged to erase the personal data without delay if one of the following grounds applies and the processing is not necessary:
o The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
o The data subject withdraws his/her consent on which the processing is based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation or Article 9(2)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation and there is no other legal ground for the processing.
o The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.
o The personal data have been processed unlawfully.
o The personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of a Member State to which the controller is subject.
o The personal data has been collected in connection with the provision of information society services pursuant to Article 8(1) of the GDPR.
If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to arrange the erasure of personal data stored by the UNASDG, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the UNASDG shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.
If the controller has made personal data public and is obliged to erase such data pursuant to Article 17(1), it shall implement reasonable measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform other data controllers that process the personal data that the data subject has requested from those other data controllers to erase all links to the personal data or copies or replications of the data, unless the processing is necessary. The employee of the UNASDG will arrange the necessary in individual cases.
e) Right to restriction of processing
Every data subject has the right, granted by the European legislator, to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following grounds applies:
o The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
o The processing is unlawful and the data subject objects to the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of its use.
o The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
o The data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR as long as it has not been verified whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by the UNASDG, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the UNASDG will arrange the restriction of the processing.
f) Right to data portability
Every data subject has the right, granted by the European legislator, to obtain personal data concerning him or her which have been provided to a controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she shall have the right to transmit such data to another controller without being prevented from doing so by the controller to whom the personal data were provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation or Article 9(2)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation, or based on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the General Data Protection Regulation and the processing is carried out by automated means, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, when exercising the right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to obtain that personal data are transferred directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals.
In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact any employee of the UNASDG.
g) Right to object
Any data subject has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the Data Protection Regulation. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The UNASDG shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If the UNASDG processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the UNASDG to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the UNASDG will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by the UNASDG for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO), unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact any employee of the UNASDG. The data subject is also free to exercise his/her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications in the context of the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.
h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling.
Every data subject shall have the right, granted by the European legislator, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, unless the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion, or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is not authorized by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which provides for suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on the data subject's explicit consent.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) it is made with the data subject's explicit consent, the UNASDG shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain the data subject's involvement on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the UNASDG.
i) Right to withdraw consent under data protection law.
Every data subject has the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to the processing of his or her personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the UNASDG.
8. legal basis for the processing
Article 6(1) lit. a DSGVO serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service, the processing is based on Art. 6(1)(b) DSGVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, for example, in the case of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for compliance with tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured in our company and his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases, if the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require the protection of personal data. Such processing operations are permissible in particular because they have been expressly mentioned by the European legislator. A legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (Recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).
9. legitimate interests of the controller or a third party.
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1)(f) DSGVO, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of the welfare of all our employees and shareholders.
10. duration of the storage of personal data.
The criterion for determining the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of this period, the relevant data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the performance or initiation of the contract.
11. provision of personal data as a legal or contractual obligation; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the data.
We clarify that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information about the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for the data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact an employee. The employee shall inform the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
12. existence of automated decision-making.
As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling.
