Substantial legal bases

We will inform you of the legal basis of our data processing in accordance with Art. 13 GDPR. If the legal basis is not mentioned in the data protection declaration, the following applies: The legal basis for obtaining consents is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and Art. 7 GDPR, the legal basis for processing for the performance of our services and performance of contractual measures as well as for answering inquiries is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, the legal basis for processing to fulfil our legal obligations is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR, and the legal basis for processing to protect our legitimate interests is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

Safety measures

We shall take appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk, taking into account the state of the art, implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing and the different likelihood and severity of the risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, in accordance with Article 32 GDPR.

Such measures shall in particular include ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical access to the data, as well as the access, input, transmission, security of availability and its separation. Furthermore, we have established procedures to ensure the exercise of rights of data subjects, deletion of data and reaction to endangerment of data. Furthermore, we already consider the protection of personal data during the development or selection of hardware, software and procedures, in accordance with the principle of data protection through technology design and data protection-friendly presettings (Art. 25 GDPR).

Collaboration with processors and third parties

If we disclose data to other persons and companies (processors or third parties) within the scope of our processing, transmit it to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this shall only take place on the basis of a legal permission (e.g. if a transmission of the data to third parties, such as to payment service providers, is required pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR for contract fulfilment), if you have consented, if this is provided for by a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).

If we commission third parties with the processing of data on the basis of a so-called "Data Procesing Agreement", this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.

Transmissions to third countries

If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if we do so in the context of the use of third-party services or disclosure or transfer of data to third parties, this will only take place if it is necessary to fulfil our (pre)contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or leave the data in a third country only if the special requirements of Art. 44 ff. Process GDPR. This means, for example, processing is carried out on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognised determination of a data protection level corresponding to the EU (e.g. for the USA by the "Privacy Shield") or compliance with officially recognised special contractual obligations (so-called "standard contractual clauses").

The data processed by us will be deleted or its processing restricted in accordance with Articles 17 and 18 GDPR.

Collection of general data and information

The website of Caballo Horsemarket collects a series of general data and information each time a person or an automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server, but not longer than 7 days. We may record the types and versions of browsers used, the operating system used by the accessing system, the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), the subwebsites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, the date and time of access to the website, the IP address and other similar data and information which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information Caballo Horsemarket does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned.

This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by Caballo Horsemarket both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order ultimately to ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.

A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after his or her visit to an online offer. Temporary cookies, or "session cookies" or "transient cookies", are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online offer and closes his browser. In such a cookie, for example, the content of a shopping basket in an online shop or a login status can be stored. Cookies are referred to as "permanent" or "persistent" and remain stored even after the browser is closed. For example, the login status can be saved when users visit it after several days. Likewise, the interests of users used for range measurement or marketing purposes may be stored in such a cookie.

We occasionally refer to third party websites. Although we select these websites carefully, we cannot assume any guarantee and liability for the correctness or completeness of the contents and data security of third-party websites. This data protection declaration also does not apply to linked third-party websites.

Business-related processing

Additionally we process

  • Contract data (e.g. contract object, term, customer category)
  • payment data (e.g. bank details, payment history)

from our customers, prospects and business partners for the purpose of providing contractual services, service and customer care, marketing, advertising and market research.

Agency services

We process the data of our customers, clients and prospective customers (uniformly designated as "customers") in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b. GDPR to provide our contractual or pre-contractual services to them. The data processed here, the type, scope and purpose and the necessity of their processing are determined by the underlying order. This basically includes inventory and master data of the customers (name, address, etc.), as well as the contact data (e-mail address, telephone, etc.), the contract data (content of the order, fees, terms, information on the brokered companies / persons / horses / services) and payment data (commissions, payment history, etc.). Furthermore, we can process the information on the characteristics and circumstances of persons or items belonging to them if this is part of the subject of our order. These can be, for example, information on personal living conditions, mobile or immovable property.
Within the scope of our assignment, it may also be necessary for us to process special categories of data pursuant to Art. 9 Para. 1 GDPR, in particular information on a person's health. In accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7, Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR, we obtain the express consent of the customer for this, if necessary.
To the extent required by law or for the fulfilment of the contract, we disclose or transmit the customer's data within the scope of coverage requests, conclusion and processing of contracts to providers of the companies, persons, horses, services, technical service providers, other service providers, such as cooperating associations, financial service providers, credit institutions and investment companies as well as social insurance carriers, tax authorities, tax consultants, legal advisors, auditors, insurance ombudsmen and the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin). Furthermore, we can commission subcontractors, such as sub-brokers. We obtain consent from customers if this is required for disclosure/transmission (which may be the case, for example, in the case of special categories of data pursuant to Art. 9 GDPR).
The data will be deleted after the expiry of statutory warranty and comparable obligations, whereby the necessity of storing the data is checked every three years; in all other respects, the statutory storage obligations apply.
In the case of statutory archiving obligations, deletion shall take place after their expiry. Under German law in particular, brokerage contracts for 5 years as well as generally 6 years for documents relevant under commercial law and 10 years for documents relevant under tax law are subject to retention.

Provision of contractual services

We process inventory data (e.g., names and addresses as well as contact data of users), contract data (e.g., services used, names of contact persons, payment information) for the purpose of fulfilling our contractual obligations and services pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit b. DSGVO. The entries marked as obligatory in online forms are required for the conclusion of the contract.

When using our online services, we store the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The data is stored on the basis of our legitimate interests as well as the user's protection against misuse and other unauthorized use. A passing on of this data to third parties does not take place in principle, unless it is necessary for the pursuit of our claims or there is a legal obligation according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. c DSGVO.

We process usage data (e.g., the visited websites of our online offer, interest in our products) and content data (e.g., entries in the contact form or user profile) for advertising purposes in a user profile in order to show the user e.g. product information based on their previously used services.

The data will be deleted after the expiry of statutory warranty and comparable obligations; the necessity of storing the data will be reviewed every three years; in the case of statutory archiving obligations, the data will be deleted after their expiry. Information in the possible customer account remain up to its deletion.

External payment service providers

We use the external payment service provider Paypal, through whose platforms the users and we can make payment transactions. You can find Paypal's privacy policy at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.

Within the scope of the fulfilment of contracts, we appoint the payment service provider on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. DSGVO. Furthermore, we employ external payment service providers on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. DSGVO to provide our users with effective and secure payment options.

The data processed by the payment service providers includes inventory data such as name and address, bank data such as account numbers or credit card numbers, passwords, TANs and checksums as well as contract, totals and recipient information. This information is required to execute the transactions. However, the data entered will only be processed and stored by the payment service providers. This means that we do not receive any account or credit card related information, but only information with confirmation or negative information about the payment. The data may be transferred by the payment service providers to credit agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to verify identity and creditworthiness. For this we refer to the terms and conditions and data protection information of the payment service providers.

For payment transactions, the terms and conditions and the data protection information of the respective payment service providers, which can be accessed within the respective websites or transaction applications, apply. We refer to these also for the purpose of further information and assertion of rights of revocation, information and other interested parties.

Administration, financial accounting, office organization, contact management

We process data in the context of administrative tasks as well as the organization of our company, financial accounting and compliance with legal obligations, such as archiving.

Customers, prospects, business partners and website visitors are affected by the processing. The purpose and our interest in the processing lies in the administration, financial accounting, office organization, archiving of data, thus tasks which serve the maintenance of our business activities, perception of our tasks and provision of our services. The deletion of the data with regard to contractual services and contractual communication corresponds to the information provided in these processing activities.

We disclose or transmit data to the tax authorities, consultants, such as tax consultants or auditors, as well as other fee offices and payment service providers.

Furthermore, we store information on suppliers, event organisers and other business partners on the basis of our business interests, e.g. for the purpose of making contact at a later date. We store this data, which is mainly company-related, permanently.

When contacting us (e.g. via contact form, e-mail, telephone or social media), the user's details are processed for processing the contact request and its processing in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO. User information can be stored in a customer relationship management system ("CRM system") or comparable request organization.

User profile

A registered user automatically has a public user profile. On the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 letter b GDPR for the purpose of providing a public user profile, additional data is collected, processed and stored if the user decides to make that information public. The processed data includes in particular a display name, public contact data (name, address, telephone numbers etc.), a profile picture and an imprint.
