§ 4 Registrierung auf unserer Internetseite
Section 4: Registering on our website
The data subject can opt to register on the controller’s website by providing personal data. The data subject can learn which personal data is transferred to the controller in the input mask used for registration. Personal data entered by the data subject will solely be used internally by the controller and collected and stored for the controller’s own purposes. The controller is permitted to disclose the personal data to one or several processors, e.g. a parcel service, which is then solely permitted to use the personal data internally for purposes specified by the controller.
Furthermore, when a data subject registers on the controller’s website, the IP address assigned to the user by their internet service provider (ISP) shall be stored along with the date and time of registration. This data is stored in order to prevent the misuse of our services and this data may be used to investigate committed offences where necessary. To this end, the storage of this data is deemed necessary to safeguard the controller’s interests. This data shall not be disclosed to third parties unless there are legal disclosure obligations to the contrary or the data needs to be used in criminal proceedings.
The voluntary provision of personal data from the data subject during registration enables the controller to offer the data subject content or services that can only be offered to registered users based on their nature. Registered users can edit personal data provided during registration at any time or demand its complete erasure from the controller’s database.
When requested, the controller must inform each data subject which personal data is stored on the data subject. Furthermore, the controller must rectify or erase personal data at the request or demand of the data subject in the absence of any statutory retention periods to the contrary. The data subject can contact any of the controller’s employees in relation to this.
Section 5: Subscribing to our newsletter
The website operated by Christopher Rauen GmbH, www.coaching-magazin.de/newsletter, offers users the ability to subscribe to our company's Coaching newsletter. The input mask states which personal data is required to subscribe to the newsletter and which personal data will be transferred to the controller.
Christopher Rauen GmbH uses its Coaching newsletter to provide its customers and business partners with regular updates on coaching topics. Data subjects can only receive our newsletter if (1) they have a valid email address and (2) they register to receive our newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation email shall be sent to the email address initially entered when registering for the newsletter as part of a double opt-in process. This confirmation email allows us to verify whether the owner of the email address authorised the receipt of the newsletter as the data subject.
Furthermore, when a data subject registers for our newsletter, we also store the data subject's IT address assigned by their internet service provider (ISP), the computer system used at the time of registration in addition to the time and date on which the data subject registered. Collection of this data is required to verify (potential) misuse of the data subject's email address at a later point in time and to consequently legally protect the controller.
Personal data collected during registration for the newsletter is solely used to send our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter may also be contacted when required in relation to provision of the newsletter service or their registration, as may be required in the case of changes to the newsletter services or the technical parameters. Personal data collected in relation to the newsletter service shall not be passed on to third parties. Once subscribed, data subjects can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time. In addition, consent to the storage of personal data granted when the data subject registered for our newsletter can be withdrawn at any time. A corresponding link to withdraw previously granted consent can be found in each newsletter. Furthermore, data subjects can also directly unsubscribe from the newsletter on the controller’s website at any time or notify the controller of their unsubscription in other ways.
Section 6: Data transfers
Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for any other purposes than the ones listed below.
We shall only provide your personal data to third parties if
- you have given your consent as per Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR.
- This is legally permissible and necessary for the performance of a contractual relationship as per Art. 6(1) lit. b GDPR;
- in the event that we are subject to a legal obligation that requires your data to be transferred as per Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR;
- the transfer of your data is necessary within the scope our business processes; and there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding compelling interest in the non-disclosure of your data as per Art. 6(1) lit. f GDPR.
Section 7: Contacting us on our website
In compliance with legal requirements, the Christopher Rauen GmbH website contains information to allow interested parties to quickly contact our company by email and directly, including a general email address. When a data subject contacts the controller by email or uses a contact form, personal data transmitted by the data subject will be automatically stored. Personal data voluntarily disclosed to the controller by the data subject will be stored to get in contact with or manage relations with the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
Section 8: Routine erasure and blocking of personal data
The controller only processes and stores the data subject’s personal data for the period required to fulfil the purpose of storage or for the period required according to laws or regulations issued by the European legislator or other legislators to which the controller is subject. If the reason for which the data was collected ceases to apply or a retention period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely deleted or blocked for continued processing according to the statutory provisions.
Section 9: Rights of the data subject
a) Right to obtain confirmation
As enacted by the European legislator, each data subject has the right to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether or not data concerning them are being processes, and, where this is the case, access to the personal data.

The Christopher Rauen GmbH employee will ensure that the necessary action is taken in the individual case.

The Christopher Rauen GmbH employee will ensure that processing is restricted in the individual case.
f) Right to data portability
The European legislator grants each data subject the right to receive the personal data concerning them, which they have provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. Data subjects are also entitled to the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where the processing is based on consent pursuant to lit. a of Art. 6(1) GDPR, or lit. a of Art. 9(2) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to lit. b of Art. 6(1) GDPR; and processing is not 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, in exercising their right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20(1) GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and provided this does no adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
The European legislator grants each data subject the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning them or similarly significantly affects them. The above shall not apply if the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller; (2) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or (3) is based on the data subject’s explicit consent.
