Product safety.

Profile Image
  • The new EU chemicals policy came into effect 2007
  • Of course all indexed substances in our products that are produced in Europe or imported to Europe are REACH pre-registered by us or our suppliers, so that the requirements for the use of transition phases until the final registration of the chemicals are fulfilled. Depending on the production volume, the registration will take place between 2010 and 2018.
  • At this time there is no need to change our product range.
  • Should our products contain substances included in the latest list of SVHCs (Substances of Very High Concern) over 0,1 % mass (w/w), we will inform you accordingly. If you purchased these products within the last 12 months, our product management will offer you alternatives. For products containing more than 0,1 % of SVHCs we will also send you the latest safety data sheets. In chapter 3 of the data sheet you will find information about content and declaration of the SVHC in question.
  • Hereby Germacolor fulfills the information requirements as in article 31 (1) REACH. This enables you as a supplier of products to fulfill your information requirements in the supply chain according to REACH article 33.
  • The GLOBALLY HARMONIZED SYSTEM will standardize the classification and declaration of chemicals worldwide. Starting 01.12.2010 the declaration concerning pure substances comes into effect in the EU. Starting 01.06.2015 GHS will also apply to mixtures. Germacolor will adapt data sheets accordingly.
    GHS includes new labelling elements divided into different categories.
  • The dangerous goods labels remain unchanged.

  • We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of the Germacolor GbR. The use of the Internet pages of the Germacolor GbR is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.
    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 Germacolor GbR. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.
    As the controller, the Germacolor GbR has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.
  • 1. Definitions

    The data protection declaration of the Germacolor GbR is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

    • d) Restriction of processing

      Restriction of processing is 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 is 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 or controller responsible for the processing

      Controller or controller responsible for the processing 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 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.

    • h) Processor

      Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

    • i) Recipient

      Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.

    • j) Third party

      Third party is 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.

    • k) Consent

      Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

  • 3. Collection of general data and information

    The website of the Germacolor GbR collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files.

Therefore, the Germacolor GbR analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and 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 all personal data provided by a data subject.

  • 4. Contact possibility via the website

    If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.
  • 6. Rights of the data subject

    • a) Right of confirmation

      Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed.

      Furthermore, the data subject shall have a right to obtain information as to whether personal data are transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. Where this is the case, the data subject shall have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer.

      If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of access, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

    • c) Right to rectification

      Each data subject shall have 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. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

      If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

    • d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)

      Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not necessary:

      • The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
      • The data subject withdraws consent to which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing.
      • 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.
      • The personal data have been unlawfully processed.
      • The personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
      • The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1) of the GDPR.

      If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by the Germacolor GbR, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. An employee of Germacolor GbR shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.

      Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required. An employees of the Germacolor GbR will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.

    • e) Right of restriction of processing

      Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the following applies:

      • 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.
      • The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of their use instead.
      • The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
      • The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the verification 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 the processing of personal data stored by the Germacolor GbR, he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the Germacolor GbR will arrange the restriction of the processing.

    • f) Right to data portability

      Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she shall have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, as long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the 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 his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

      In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact any employee of the Germacolor GbR.

    • g) Right to object

      Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

      The Germacolor GbR 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 establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

      If the Germacolor GbR 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 applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the Germacolor GbR to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the Germacolor GbR 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 by the Germacolor GbR for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

      In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact any employee of the Germacolor GbR. In addition, the data subject is free in the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

    • h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

      Each 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, as long as the decision (1) is not is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is not 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 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 a data controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject's explicit consent, the Germacolor GbR shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention 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 Germacolor GbR.

    • i) Right to withdraw data protection consent

      Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to 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 Germacolor GbR.

  • 7. Legal basis for the processing

    Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR 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 party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of 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 the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company 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(1) lit. d GDPR.
    Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
  • 8. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party

    Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
  • 9. Period for which the personal data will be stored

    The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
  • 10. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data

    We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner).
    Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
    Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to 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 the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
  • 11. Existence of automated decision-making

    As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.

What a colorful world.
