Your rights as a data subject.

Initially, we wish to inform you of your rights as a data subject. These rights are standardised in Articles 15 - 22 EU-GDPR. This includes:

  • The right to information (Article 15 EU-GDPR),
  • The right to erasure (Article 17 EU-GDPR),
  • The right to rectification (Article 16 EU-GDPR),
  • The right to data portability (Article 20 EU-GDPR),
  • The right to restrict data processing (Article 18 EU-GDPR),
  • The right to object to data processing (Article 21 EU-GDPR),

In order to exercise these rights please contact: funpark-pr@playmobil.de The same applies if you have questions regarding data processing in our company. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority.

Right of objection.

Please note the following with regard to the right of objection:

If we process your data for the purposes of direct marketing, you have the right to object to this at any time without stating the reasons. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with direct marketing.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for this purpose. The objection can be made free of charge and in free form at: funpark-pr@playmobil.de.

In the event that we process your data to protect legitimate interests; you may still object to this at any time due to reasons arising from your particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling and legitimate grounds for doing so which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Purposes and legal bases of data processing.

The processing of your personal data complies with the provisions of the EU-GDPR and all other applicable data protection regulations. The legal bases for data processing are derived in particular from Art. 6 EU-GDPR.

We use your data to initiate business, to fulfil contractual and legal obligations, to conduct our contractual relationship, to offer products and services and to strengthen customer relationships, which may include analyses for marketing purposes and direct marketing.

Your consent also represents a permission regulation under data protection. In doing so, we will inform you about the purposes of data processing and your right of revocation. If consent also relates to the processing of special categories of personal data, we will expressly inform you of this as part of the consent procedure, Art. 88 para. 1 EU-GDPR.

Processing of special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 (1) EU-GDPR applies only where the law so requires and there is no reason to believe that your legitimate interest in the exclusion of processing is overriding, Art. 88 (1) EU-GDPR.

Transfer to third parties.

We shall transfer your data to third parties only within the scope of statutory provisions or with corresponding consent. Otherwise personal data shall not be transferred to third parties unless we are obliged to do so due to compelling legal regulations (disclosure to external bodies such as supervisory authorities or law enforcement authorities).

Recipient of the data / categories of recipients

Within our organisation we ensure that only those individuals receive your data who require it to fulfil contractual and legal obligations. This is ensured by filing restricted recipient email addresses in the system, to which only certain groups of people, such as in the recruitment portal only the Human Resources Department or in the contact form only the FunPark team have access.

In many cases service providers support our specialist departments in fulfilling their tasks. The necessary data protection agreements were concluded with all service providers.

Third country transfer / third country transfer intent

Data transfers to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) do not take place.

Data storage period

We store your data for as long as they are needed for their respective processing purposes. Please note that numerous retention periods require that data (has) to be stored further on. This relates in particular to commercial or fiscal retention obligations (e.g. Commercial Code, Tax Code, etc.). Unless there are further retention obligations, data will be routinely erased after their purpose is served.

Additionally, if you have given us your consent to do so, or in the event of legal disputes requiring us to use the data as evidence within the statutory limitation period, which may be up to thirty years, we may retain the data; the regular limitation period is three years.

Secure transfer of your data

In order to best protect the data stored by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons, we employ appropriate technical and organisational security measures. Security levels are continuously reviewed in cooperation with security experts and are adapted to the latest security standards.

Data transfer to and from our websites is always encrypted. For our online presence we offer HTTPS as the transmission protocol, at all times using current encryption protocols such as SSL.
