Data Privacy Statement

(Status: September 2019)
Thank you very much for your interest in our company. Data protection is particularly important to the management of Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG. The use of the internet pages of Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of special services provided by our company via our Internet pages, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand both for the public and for our customers and business partners. In order to guarantee this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
We use the following terms in this data privacy statement:

a) personal data

Personal data means 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 is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller.

c) processing

Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, 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 means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.

e) profiling

Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

f) pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a manner 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 separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) controller

Controller means 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 such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

j) third party

Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.

4. Cookies

The Internet pages of Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG use cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored via an Internet browser on a device used by the user (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) and stored when our site is visited. Cookies do not damage the devices and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware.
Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a sequence of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified by its unique cookie ID. This does not, however, mean that we are immediately aware of the identity of the user.
Through the use of cookies, Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the setting of cookies.
By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised in the interests of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognise the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his access data each time he visits the website because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. The data processed by cookies are necessary for the purposes mentioned to safeguard our legitimate interests and those of third parties pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of special setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, 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 under certain circumstances.

5. Collection of general data and information

The website of Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. These general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. This data can be collected:

  • browser types and versions used,
  • operating system used by the accessing system,
  • website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer),
  • subwebsites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
  • date and time of access to the website,
  • an Internet protocol address (IP address),
  • the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and
  • other similar data and information used to avert dangers in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

The IP address is transmitted protocol-dependent with each server inquiry, so that the server can transmit the website to the inquiring computer. Every Internet user receives the IP address from his Internet Service Provider (ISP) as soon as he connects to the Internet. The ISP can typically trace which IP address was assigned to which customer at which time. As long as the IP address has been assigned by Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG, the identity of the subscriber can theoretically be determined by means of a request to the ISP.
When using this general data and information, Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required in order to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) optimise the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) guarantee the long-term operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber-attack. This anonymous data and information is collected by Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG will therefore be evaluated both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by the data subject. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

6. Registration on our website for contests, competitions, offers and promotions

The data subject has the opportunity to register on the website of Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG, providing personal data for various campaigns, or to participate in them. Which personal data is transferred to Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG is determined by the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject is used exclusively for internal purposes at Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG and for its own purposes. The Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG may arrange for the data to be passed on to one or more processors, for example a parcel service provider or an agency for processing a promotion, which also uses the personal data exclusively for internal purposes attributable to the person responsible for processing.
By registering or participating in campaigns on the website of Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG, the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to the data subject, the date and time of registration will also be stored. This data is stored to prevent misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable criminal offences to be investigated. In this respect, the storage of this data for the security of Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG is necessary. These data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the data is used for criminal prosecution.
The registration or participation of the data subject with voluntary disclosure (consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) of personal data serves Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG to offer the data subject content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to remove it completely from the database of Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG at any time or completely from the database of Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. However, when data is deleted, certain actions can no longer be participated in.
If the data subject uploads a receipt as part of a promotional campaign, he or she does so voluntarily. In this case, Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG evaluates certain data of the receipt so that Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG can credit the data subject with the repayment amount and exclude fraud. The receipt data collected includes the name and location of the supermarket, the date and time of purchase, the products purchased and their prices, and the total amount of the purchase.
In order to be able to pay out the refund amount, Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG requires the bank account data of the data subject. The data subject enters his/her data in order to receive the amount of money. Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG uses this data exclusively for the respective payment and deletes it after a certain period of time after the transfer has been executed. Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG may, in the course of processing such an action, arrange for the transfer to a processor with whom Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG has concluded a contract for processing. This processor is exclusively obliged by Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG to process and delete this data after fulfilment of the service contract.
Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG will provide any data subject with information at any time on request as to which personal data about the data subject is stored. Furthermore, the person responsible for processing corrects or deletes personal data at the request or notice of the data subject, insofar as this does not conflict with any statutory storage obligations.

7. Possibility of contact via the website

The website of Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG contains information that enables electronic contact with our company as well as direct communication with us. If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted voluntarily by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If the purpose of the e-mail contact is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.
In the case of contact by e-mail, the necessary legitimate interest lies in the processing of the data to process the communication.
The data is generally blocked as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose of its collection. For personal data sent by e-mail, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been conclusively clarified. As a rule, final deletion will only take place after the expiry of statutory retention or limitation periods.

8. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG processes and stores the personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the storage purpose or insofar as this has been provided for by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or another legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.
If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

9. Rights of the data subject

If personal data of the data subject are processed, this person is subject in the sense of the GDPR and has the following rights against Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG. If a data subject wishes to exercise one or more of these rights, he or she can contact Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG at any time.

Every data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to demand from Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:

  • The correctness of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period of time which may not be disclosed to Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
  • The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to delete the personal data and instead demands the restriction of the use of the personal data.
  • Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG no longer requires the personal data for the purposes of processing, but the data subject requires it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
  • The data subject has lodged an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG outweigh those of the data subject.

If the processing of the personal data relating to the data subject has been restricted, these data – apart from their storage – may only be processed with the consent of the data subject or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State. If processing has been restricted in accordance with the above-mentioned conditions, the data subject shall be informed by Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG before the restriction is lifted.

e) Right to deletion (right to be forgotten)

Every data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to demand from Natsu Foods GmbH & Co.

  • The personal data were collected for such purposes or processed in any other way for which they are no longer necessary.

KG, taking into account the available technology and implementation costs, takes appropriate measures, including technical measures, to inform other persons responsible for data processing, who process the published personal data, that the data subject has requested these other persons responsible for data processing to delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data, insofar as the processing is not necessary.
The right to deletion does not exist insofar as processing is necessary:

  • to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
  • to fulfil a legal obligation which processing is subject to under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG is subject or to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG;

KG processes personal data for the purpose of direct advertising, the person concerned has the right at any time to object to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising.

To exercise the right to object, the data subject is free to exercise his or her right to object in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

h) Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law

The data subject has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Body, to revoke his/her declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of consent until revocation.

  2. is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the data controller is subject and contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject, or
  3. with the express consent of the data subject.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the user.
If the decision is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the person responsible or is made with the express consent of the data subject, Natsu Foods GmbH & Co.

13. privacy policy on the use of Facebook

Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG has integrated Facebook components on this website. Facebook is a social network.
A social network is a social meeting point operated on the Internet, an online community that usually enables users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences or enables the Internet community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos and network via friend requests, among other things.
The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc. 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The person responsible for processing personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland if a person concerned lives outside the USA or Canada.
Each access to any of the individual pages of this website by Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE . As part of this technical process, Facebook obtains information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.
If the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific page of our website the data subject is visiting each time the person visits our website and for the entire duration of the person’s stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the “Like” button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and saves this personal data.
Facebook receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged into Facebook at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether the person clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook in this way, he/she can prevent it from being transmitted by logging out of their Facebook account before accessing our website.
Facebook’s published privacy policy, available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, discloses Facebook’s collection, processing and use of personal information.

Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transmission to Facebook. Facebook has signed the Privacy Shield agreement between the US and the EU.

14. privacy policy regarding the use of Google AdSense

Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG has integrated Google AdSense on this website. Google AdSense is an online service that enables the placement of advertisements on third-party sites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm which selects the advertisements displayed on third party sites according to the content of the respective third party site. Google AdSense provides an interest-related targeting of the Internet user, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.
The operating company of the Google AdSense component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
The purpose of the Google AdSense component is the integration of advertisements on our website. Google AdSense places a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. What cookies are has been explained above. The setting of cookies enables Alphabet Inc. to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google AdSense component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google AdSense component to transmit data to Alphabet Inc. for the purpose of online advertising and the billing of commissions. As part of this technical process, Alphabet Inc. obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Alphabet Inc. uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable it to bill commissions.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A pixel-code is a miniature graphic that is embedded in Internet pages to enable a log file recording and a log file analysis, which can be used for statistical evaluation. Based on the embedded pixel-code, Alphabet Inc. can recognize if and when a website was opened by an affected person and which links were clicked by the data subject.

15. Privacy policy regarding the use of Instagram

The data controller has integrated components of the Instagram service on this website. Instagram is a service that qualifies as an audiovisual platform that allows users to share photos and videos and also to distribute such data on other social networks.
Instagram’s services are operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed by the data controller and an Instagram component (Insta button) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system is automatically prompted by the Instagram component to download a representation of the corresponding Instagram component. As part of this technical process, Instagram is informed of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged into Instagram at the same time, Instagram recognizes which specific page the data subject is visiting each time the person visits our website and for the entire duration of that person’s stay on our website. This information is collected by the Instagram component and assigned by Instagram to the respective Instagram account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transmitted will be assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the data subject and stored and processed by Instagram.
Instagram receives information through the Instagram component that the data subject has visited our website whenever the person is logged into Instagram at the same time as they visit our website, regardless of whether the person clicks on the Instagram component or not. If the data subject does not want Instagram to receive this information, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Instagram account before accessing our website.

16. Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG as a legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations which are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same shall apply to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our business were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the party concerned do not predominate. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he was of the opinion that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

17. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or by a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is the conduct of our business for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.

18. Duration for which the personal data are stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After this period has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted if they are no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

19. Legal or contractual provisions governing the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing the personal data

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual provisions (e.g. information about the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject provides Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG personal data, which must be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG concludes a contract with him/her. Not providing personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the data subject. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact an employee of Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG. The employee of Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis 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 consequences the non-availability of the personal data would have.

20. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG does not use automatic decision making or profiling.

21. Changes to the data privacy statement

This data privacy statement may be updated from time to time; therefore, you should review it each time you provide personal information to Natsu Foods GmbH & Co. KG. The date of the most recent revisions is displayed on this page.
