Phytobiotics Corporate Policy on Indirect Administrative Fees
Since our foundation,  we have been dedicated to science and research.  We believe that progress can only be achieved through a continuous thirst for knowledge, a ceaseless willingness to learn, and the courage to break new ground. It is Phytobiotics policy that it will contribute to the indirect costs of project-based research work through an overhead contribution of no more than 15% of the total indirect costs of the research facility. Indirect costs are general overhead and administration expenses that support the entire operations of a facility and that may be shared across projects.  Expenses that would be incurred regardless of whether the Phytobiotics research is conducted are often indicative of indirect costs.  These costs are to be documented and agreed upon prior to initiation of a research project funded by Phytobiotics.

The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller with the indication of personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller, and for his own purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or more processors (e.g. a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the controller. The data subject is registered through voluntary entry of personal data so that the controller can provide the data subject with content or services which due to their nature can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons have the option, at any time, of causing the modification or complete deletion of the personal data they entered during registration. The legal basis of the data processing, if consent is provided, is Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, if the processing is necessary for performance of the desired services. Your data will be deleted as soon as the user account is deleted from our website and as long as there are no statutory retention obligations.

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address—assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the registration are also stored. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The storage of this data takes place in the context of our legitimate interest, since it is only in this manner that abuse of our services can be prevented, and this data makes it possible to investigate any crimes committed. Therefore the storage of this data is necessary to secure the controller’s processing activities. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.
On the website of the Phytobiotics Futterzusatzstoffe GmbH, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise’s newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.

The Phytobiotics Futterzusatzstoffe GmbH informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The enterprise’s newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is authorized to receive the newsletter. By confirming, the data subject grants us his consent pursuant to Art. (6)(1)(a) GDPR for us to use his personal data in order to send him the desired newsletters.

During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way. By unsubscribing, the email address of the data subject is immediately removed from our newsletter mailing list if he has not expressly consented to continued use of the collected data or continued processing is otherwise legally permitted.
The newsletter of the Phytobiotics Futterzusatzstoffe GmbH contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the Phytobiotics Futterzusatzstoffe GmbH may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.

Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the shipping of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted by the controller. The Phytobiotics Futterzusatzstoffe GmbH automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
The website of the Phytobiotics Futterzusatzstoffe GmbH contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties. The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest in replying to your request pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR and (if applicable) Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR if your request pertains to intended conclusion of a contract. After completed processing of your request, your data is deleted as long as no statutory retention requirements specify otherwise.
The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.

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.
In the following, the rights of the data subject with respect to the controller regarding the processing of your personal data will be listed. If the data subject would like to assert one of these rights, he may contact an employee of the processing controller at any time for this purpose.

a) Right of access
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller information about his or her personal data stored at any time and a copy of this information. Furthermore, access to the following information is granted:

Pursuant to Art. 17 GDPR, the data subject has the right to demand from the controller that his personal data be immediately erased, as long as the processing is not required for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for fulfilment of a legal obligation, for reasons in the public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

d) Right of restriction of processing
Pursuant to Art. 18 GDPR, the data subject has the right to demand that the controller restrict the processing if one of the following conditions is met:
  • 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.

e) Right to data portability
Pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR, the data subject must receive the personal data relating to him or her which have been provided by the data subject to a responsible person in a structured, common 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.

f) The right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
The data subject has the right pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. Generally, the data subject may contact the supervisory authority of the Bundesland (German federal state) of our registered office (as provided above) or if applicable in their place of ordinary sojourn or employment.

g) Right to object
The person concerned has the right, in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR, to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning him or her on the basis of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The Phytobiotics Futterzusatzstoffe GmbH 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 Phytobiotics Futterzusatzstoffe GmbH 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.

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 Phytobiotics Futterzusatzstoffe GmbH 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 Phytobiotics Futterzusatzstoffe GmbH. 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
The person concerned has the right 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 Phytobiotics Futterzusatzstoffe GmbH 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 Phytobiotics Futterzusatzstoffe GmbH.

The data controller shall collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of the processing of the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is the case, in particular, if an applicant submits corresponding application documents by e-mail or by means of a web form on the website to the controller. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements.

If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant by the controller, the application documents shall be automatically erased two months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller are opposed to the erasure.
