We, Cloudwharf GmbH, represented by the Managing Director Dr. Kostiantyn Teplynskyi Werinherstr. 3, 81541 Munich (hereinafter: “the company”, “we” or “us”) take the protection of your personal data seriously and would like to inform you at this point about data protection in our company.
Within the scope of our responsibility under data protection law, additional obligations have been imposed on us by the entry into force of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679; hereinafter: in German “DS-GVO”) in order to ensure the protection of personal data of the person affected by a processing (we also address you as a data subject with “customer”, “user”, “you”, “you” or “data subject” hereinafter).
Insofar as we decide either alone or jointly with others on the purposes and means of data processing, this includes above all the obligation to inform you transparently about the nature, scope, purpose, duration and legal basis of the processing (cf. Art. 13 and 14 DS-GVO). With this declaration (hereinafter: “data protection notice”), we inform you about the manner in which your personal data is processed by us.
Following the model of Art. 4 DS-GVO, this data protection notice is based on the following definitions:
– “Personal data” ( Art. 4 No. 1 DS-GVO) means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”). A person is identifiable if he or she can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, an online identifier, location data or by means of information regarding his or her physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity characteristics. The identifiability can also be given by means of a linkage of such information or other additional knowledge. The origin, form or embodiment of the information is irrelevant (photographs, video or audio recordings may also contain personal data).
– “Processing” ( Art. 4 No. 2 DS-GVO) means any operation which involves the handling of personal data, whether or not by automated (i.e. technology-based) means. This includes, in particular, the collection (i.e. acquisition), recording, organisation, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment, combination, restriction, erasure or destruction of personal data, as well as the alteration of a purpose or intended purpose on which a data processing was originally based.
“Controller” ( Art. 4 No. 7 DS-GVO) means 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.
– “Third party” ( Art. 4 No. 10 DS-GVO) means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process the personal data; this also includes other group-affiliated legal entities.
– “Processor” ( Art. 4 No. 8 DS-GVO) is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller, in particular in accordance with the controller’s instructions (e.g. IT service provider). In terms of data protection law, a processor is in particular not a third party.
– Consent” (Art. 4 No. 11 GDPR) of the data subject means any freely given, informed and unambiguous indication of his or her wishes in the form of a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
(2) Name and address of the data controller
The controller of your personal data within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 7 DS-GVO is us:
For further information on our company, please refer to the imprint details on our website https://cloudwharf.com/terms/.
(3) Contact details of the data protection officer
Our company data protection officer is available at all times to answer any questions you may have and to act as your contact person on the subject of data protection at our company. His contact details are:
(4) Legal basis for data processing
In principle, any processing of personal data is prohibited by law and only permitted if the data processing falls under one of the following justifications:
– Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO (“consent”): Where the data subject has voluntarily, in an informed manner and unambiguously indicated by a statement or other unambiguous affirmative act that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her for one or more specific purposes;
– Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO: If the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or for the performance of pre-contractual measures taken at the data subject’s request;
– Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DS-GVO: If processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject (e.g. a legal obligation to keep records);
– Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. d DS-GVO: If the processing is necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person;
– Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. e DS-GVO: If the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller; or
– Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO (“Legitimate Interests”): Where processing is necessary for the purposes of legitimate (in particular legal or economic) interests of the controller or a third party, unless such interests are overridden by the conflicting interests or rights of the data subject (in particular where the data subject is a minor).
Storing information in the end user’s terminal equipment or accessing information already stored in the terminal equipment is only permissible if it is covered by one of the following justifications:
– Section 25 (1) TTDSG: If the end user has consented on the basis of clear and comprehensive information. Consent must be given in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO;
– Section 25 (2) no. 1 TTDSG: If the sole purpose is to carry out the transmission of a communication via a public telecommunications network or
– Section 25 (2) no. 2 TTDSG: If the storage or access is absolutely necessary so that the provider of a telemedia service can provide a telemedia service expressly requested by the user.
For the processing operations carried out by us, we indicate below the applicable legal basis in each case. A processing operation may also be based on several legal bases.
(5) Data deletion and storage period
For the processing operations carried out by us, we indicate below in each case how long the data will be stored by us and when it will be deleted or blocked. If no explicit storage period is specified below, your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose or legal basis for the storage no longer applies. In principle, your data will only be stored on our servers in Germany, subject to any transfer that may take place in accordance with the regulations in A.(7) and A.(8).
However, storage may take place beyond the specified time in the event of a (threatened) legal dispute with you or other legal proceedings or if storage is provided for by statutory regulations to which we are subject as the responsible party (e.g. § 257 HGB, § 147 AO). If the storage period prescribed by the legal regulations expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted unless further storage by us is necessary and there is a legal basis for this.
(6) Data security
We use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorised access by third parties (e.g. TSL encryption for our website), taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, context and purpose of the processing, as well as the existing risks of a data breach (including its probability and impact) for the data subject. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
We will be happy to provide you with more detailed information on request. Please contact our data protection officer (see under A.(3)).
(7) Cooperation with processors
As with any larger company, we also use external domestic and foreign service providers to process our business transactions (e.g. for the areas of IT, logistics, telecommunications, sales and marketing). These service providers only act on our instructions and are contractually obliged to comply with the provisions of data protection law in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO.
If we pass on your personal data to our subsidiaries or our subsidiaries pass it on to us (e.g. for advertising purposes), this is done on the basis of existing order processing relationships.
(8) Conditions for the transfer of personal data to third countries
In the course of our business relationships, your personal data may be transferred or disclosed to third party companies. These may also be located outside the European Economic Area (EEA), i.e. in third countries. Such processing takes place exclusively for the fulfilment of contractual and business obligations and to maintain your business relationship with us (legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit b or lit f in each case in conjunction with Art. 44 et seq. DS-GVO). We will inform you about the respective details of the transfer in the relevant places below.
The European Commission certifies data protection comparable to the EEA standard for some third countries by means of so-called adequacy decisions (a list of these countries and a copy of the adequacy decisions can be obtained here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/adequacy-decisions_en). However, in other third countries to which personal data may be transferred, there may not be a consistently high level of data protection due to a lack of legal provisions. If this is the case, we ensure that data protection is sufficiently guaranteed. This is possible via binding company regulations, standard contractual clauses of the European Commission for the protection of personal data pursuant to Art. 46 Para. 1 , 2 lit. c DS-GVO (the standard contractual clauses of 2021 are available at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32021D0915&locale-en), certificates or recognised codes of conduct. Please contact our data protection officer (see under A.(3)) if you would like more information on this.
(9) No automated decision making (including profiling)
We do not intend to use any personal data collected from you for any automated decision making process (including profiling).
(10) No obligation to provide personal data.
We do not make the conclusion of contracts with us dependent on you providing us with personal data beforehand. As a customer, you are not under any legal or contractual obligation to provide us with your personal data; however, we may only be able to provide certain services to a limited extent or not at all if you do not provide the necessary data. If this should exceptionally be the case in the context of the products we offer presented below, you will be informed of this separately.
(11) Legal obligation to transmit certain data
Under certain circumstances, we may be subject to a special statutory or legal obligation to provide the personal data lawfully processed to third parties, in particular public bodies ( Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DS-GVO).
(12) Your rights
You can assert your rights as a data subject regarding your processed personal data at any time by contacting us using the contact details provided at the beginning of A.(2). As a data subject, you have the right
– to request information about your data processed by us in accordance with Art. 15 DS-GVO. In particular, you can request information about the processing purposes, the category of data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right of complaint, the origin of your data if it has not been collected by us, as well as the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, if applicable, meaningful information about its details;
– in accordance with Art. 16 DS-GVO, to demand the correction of incorrect data or the completion of your data stored by us without delay;
– in accordance with Art. 17 DS-GVO, to request the deletion of your data stored by us, unless the processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims;
– in accordance with Art. 18 DS-GVO, to request the restriction of the processing of your data, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you or the processing is unlawful;
– pursuant to Art. 20 DS-GVO, to receive your data that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transfer to another controller (“data portability”);
– object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DS-GVO, provided that the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. e or lit. f DS-GVO. This is particularly the case if the processing is not necessary for the performance of a contract with you. Unless it is an objection to direct marketing, when exercising such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the merits of the case and either discontinue or adapt the data processing or show you our compelling legitimate grounds on the basis of which we will continue the processing;
– in accordance with Article 7(3) of the DS-GVO, to revoke your consent given once (also before the DS-GVO came into force, i.e. before 25.5.2018) – i.e. your voluntary will, made understandable in an informed manner and unambiguously by means of a declaration or other unambiguous confirming act, that you agree to the processing of the personal data concerned for one or more specific purposes – at any time vis-à-vis us, if you have given such consent. The consequence of this is that we may no longer continue the data processing based on this consent in the future, and
– complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data in our company in accordance with Art. 77 DS-GVO, for example to the data protection supervisory authority responsible for us: Bavarian State Data Protection Commissioner for Data Protection, Wegmüllerstr. 18, 80502 Munich, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
(13) Changes to the data protection information
In the context of the further development of data protection law as well as technological or organisational changes, our data protection information is regularly checked for the need to adapt or supplement it. You will be informed of any changes in particular on our German website at www.cloudwharf.com/de/. This data protection notice is valid as of April, 2023.
B. Visiting websites
(1) Explanation of function
You can obtain information about our company and the services we offer in particular at www.cloudwharf.com together with the associated sub-pages (hereinafter collectively: “websites”). When you visit our websites, personal data may be processed.
(2) Processed personal data
During the informational use of the Websites, the following categories of personal data are collected, stored and processed by us:
“log data”: When you visit our websites, a so-called protocol data record (so-called server log files) is stored temporarily and anonymously on our web server. This consists of:
– the page from which the page was requested (so-called referrer URL)
– the name and URL of the requested page
– the date and time of the request
– the description of the type, language and version of the web browser used
– the IP address of the requesting computer, which is shortened in such a way that a personal reference can no longer be established
– the amount of data transferred
– the operating system
– the message as to whether the request was successful (access status/ttp status code)
– the GMT time zone difference
“Contact form data”: When contact forms are used, the data transmitted through them are processed (e.g. gender, surname and first name, address, company, email address and the time of transmission).
In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer the subscription to our newsletter, which we use to inform you about current developments in business law and events. If you subscribe to our newsletter, the following “newsletter data” will be collected, stored and processed by us:
– the page from which the page was requested (so-called referrer URL)
– the date and time of the request
– the description of the type of web browser used
– the IP address of the requesting computer, which is shortened in such a way that a personal reference can no longer be established
– the e-mail address
– the date and time of registration and confirmation.
We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are single-pixel image files stored on our website. For the evaluations, we link the aforementioned data and the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. Links contained in the newsletter also contain this ID. The data is only collected pseudonymously, i.e. the IDs are not linked to your other personal data, a direct personal reference is excluded.
(3) Purpose and legal basis of data processing
We process the personal data described in more detail above in accordance with the provisions of the DS-GVO, the other relevant data protection regulations and only to the extent necessary. Insofar as the processing of personal data is based on Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO, the aforementioned purposes also represent our legitimate interests.
The processing of log data serves statistical purposes and the improvement of the quality of our website, in particular the stability and security of the connection (legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a or lit. f DS-GVO).
Contact form data is processed for the purpose of handling customer enquiries (legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b or lit. f DS-GVO).
Newsletter data is processed for the purpose of sending the newsletter. When registering for our newsletter, you consent to the processing of your personal data (legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO). We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to register for our newsletter. This means that after your registration, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address you provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. The purpose of this procedure is to verify your registration and, if necessary, to be able to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data. You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can declare the revocation by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter e-mail, by e-mail to email@example.com or by sending a message to the contact details given in the imprint.
If the processing of the data requires the storage of information in your terminal equipment or access to information already stored in the terminal equipment, § 25 para. 1 , 2 TTDSG is the legal basis for this.
(4) Duration of data processing
Third parties used by us will store your data on their system for as long as is necessary in connection with the provision of services for us in accordance with the respective order.
(5) Transfer of personal data to third parties; justification basis
The following categories of recipients, which are usually order processors (see A.(7)), may receive access to your personal data:
– Service providers for the operation of our website and the processing of data stored or transmitted by the systems (e.g. for data centre services, payment processing, IT security). The legal basis for the transfer is then Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b or lit. f DS-GVO, insofar as these are not order processors;
– Government agencies/authorities, insofar as this is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation. The legal basis for the disclosure is then Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DS-GVO;
– Persons employed to carry out our business operations (e.g. auditors, banks, insurance companies, legal advisors, supervisory authorities, parties involved in company acquisitions or the establishment of joint ventures). The legal basis for the disclosure is then Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b or lit. f DS-GVO.
For guarantees of an appropriate level of data protection in the event of data being passed on to third countries, see A.(8).
Furthermore, we will only pass on your personal data to third parties if you have given your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a DS-GVO.
Cookies can contain data that make it possible to recognise the device used. In some cases, however, cookies only contain information on certain settings that cannot be related to a specific person. However, cookies cannot directly identify a user.
A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session. With regard to their function, a distinction is made between cookies:
– Technical cookies: these are essential to navigate the website, use basic functions and ensure the security of the website; they do not collect information about you for marketing purposes nor do they store which web pages you have visited;
– Performance cookies: these collect information about how you use our website, which pages you visit and, for example, whether errors occur during website use; they do not collect information that could identify you – all information collected is anonymous and is only used to improve our website and find out what interests our users;
– Advertising cookies, targeting cookies: these are used to provide the website user with tailored advertising on the website or third party offers and to measure the effectiveness of these offers; advertising and targeting cookies are stored for a maximum of 13 months;
– Sharing cookies: these are used to improve the interactivity of our website with other services (e.g. social networks); sharing cookies are stored for a maximum of 13 months.
c) Social media plugins Linkedin/Facebook/Google
(1) We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook or Google, LinkedIn. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can identify the provider of the plug-in by marking the box with its initial letter or logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only when you click on the marked box and thereby activate it, does the plug-in provider receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. According to Facebook, the IP address is anonymised immediately after collection in Germany. By activating the plug-in, your personal data is transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the case of US providers, in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects the data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the greyed-out box.
(2) We have no influence on the data collected and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes of the processing, the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider.
(3) The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the display of needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Via the plug-ins, we offer you the opportunity to interact with the social networks and other users so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.
(4) The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in to the plug-in provider, your data collected by us will be directly assigned to your account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link to the page, the plug-in provider also saves this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this will help you to avoid an assignment to your profile with the plug-in provider.
(5) Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the data protection declarations of these providers provided below. There you will also receive further information on your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy.

d) Social Plugin Xing
Our website also uses the “share function” of the XING network. The provider is XING AG, Dammtorstraße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.
e) Social Plugin Twitter
Plugins of the short message network of Twitter Inc. (Twitter) are integrated on our Internet pages. You can recognise the Twitter plugins (tweet button) by the Twitter logo on our site. You can find an overview of tweet buttons here (https://about.twitter.com/resources/buttons).
When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Twitter server. Twitter thereby receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Twitter “tweet button” while you are logged into your Twitter account, you can link the content of our pages on your Twitter profile. This enables Twitter to associate your visit to our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Twitter.
If you do not wish Twitter to be able to associate your visit to our pages, please log out of your Twitter user account.
f) Social plugin YouTube
We have embedded YouTube videos in our online offer, which are stored on http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. In principle, when you call up a page with embedded videos, your IP address is already sent to YouTube/Google and cookies are installed on your computer. However, we have embedded our videos in “extended data protection mode”, i.e. no data about you as a user will be transmitted to YouTube/Google if you do not play the videos. Only when you click on the video to play it will the following data be transmitted:
– IP address
– Date and time of the request
– Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
– Content of the request (specific page)
– Access status/HTTP status code
– Amount of data transferred in each case
– Website from which the request came
– Operating system and its interface
– Language and version of the browser software.
– Hardware used (PC, smartphone, etc.)
– Location (if Google Maps is activated)
We have no influence on this data transmission.
By visiting our website and playing the videos, YouTube/Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. If you are logged in to Google, this data is directly assigned to your account. If you do not wish this to be associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. In addition, YouTube/Google also stores data if you do not have a Google user account, these are in particular: IP address, search queries, browser and operating system version. YouTube/Google stores the aforementioned data as usage profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or designing its website in line with requirements. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in or users without a corresponding account) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

Google Ads enables us to display advertisements in the Google search engine or on third-party websites when the user enters certain search terms on Google (keyword targeting). Furthermore, targeted advertisements can be played on the basis of the user data available at Google (e.g. location data and interests) (target group targeting). As the website operator, we can evaluate this data quantitatively by analysing, for example, which search terms have led to the display of our advertisements and how many advertisements have led to corresponding clicks.
