Graham Shapiro Design Ltd (“we”, “us”, “GSD®”) are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This policy (together with our terms of website use) sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.
As the Data Controller, Graham Shapiro Design Ltd Ltd has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most comprehensive protection of personal data processed through this website. However, whilst we take every reasonable step (for example by using an encrypted connection between your website browser and our website), Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps outside of our control, 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.

2. COLLECTION OF GENERAL DATA & INFORMATION
The Graham Shapiro Design Ltd website 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. Collected data may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating
system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our
website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site,
(6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system,
and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on
our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, Graham Shapiro Design Ltd does not draw any
conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content
of our website correctly, (2) optimise the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3)
ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4)
provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case
of a cyber-attack. Therefore, Graham Shapiro Design Ltd analyses anonymously collected data and
information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our organisation,
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.

An employee of Graham Shapiro Design Ltd will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.
e) Right of restriction of processing

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

h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the legislator not to be subject to a
decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects

6. LEGAL BASIS
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 fulfilment 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 above mentioned 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 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).
7. 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 favour of the well-being of all
our employees and the shareholders.
8. 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 fulfilment of the contract or the
initiation of a contract.
9. 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
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.
