Blattner Coaching (“company”, “we”, “us”, “our”, “controller”) is dedicated to maintaining your privacy and protecting your personal information online. We work to protect your personal information and maintain your privacy through your use of our website.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Blattner Coaching.

However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, 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.

6. PROCESSING YOUR INFORMATION
For the most part, we do not process your information in-house, but give it to third party processors for processing. For example, when Stripe takes your payment information, they are a third party processor. They process your payment and remit the funds to us. So in many instances, it will be necessary for us to transmit your information to a third party processor, as we do not have the capability to perform these functions. More detail on third party processing is detailed below.
However, we may, from time to time, process your data internally. The legal basis for this processing is both your consent to the processing, and our need to conduct our legitimate business interests. Our purposes in processing this information, if we do, is to administer, maintain, and improve our website and offerings, to enter into contracts with you, to fulfill the terms of those contracts, to keep records of our transactions and interactions, to be able to provide you with goods and services, to comply with our legal obligations, to obtain professional advice and to protect the rights and interests of our company, our customers (including you) and any third parties. We may process the following data:
(a) Data associated with your account, such as your name, address, email address and payment information
(b) Data about your usage of our website, such as your IP address, geographical information, and how long you accessed our website and what you viewed.
(c) Data related to your personal profile, such as your name, address.
(d) Data that you provide us in the course of using our services.
(e) Data that you post on our website, such as comments or responses to blogs.
(f) Data that you submit to us when you make an inquiry regarding our website or offerings.
(g) Data related to your transactions with us, including your purchase of our goods or services. This information may include contact details and payment information.
(h) Data that you provide to us when you subscribe to our emails or newsletters, including your email address and contact information.
(i) Data that you submit to us via correspondence, such as when you email us with questions.
(j) Any other data identified in this policy, for the purpose of complying with our legal obligations, or to protect the vital interests of you or any other natural person.
7. DATA RETENTION
We may retain personal data as long as it is needed to conduct our legitimate business purposes or to comply with our legal obligations, or until you ask us to delete your data. For example, we will retain certain personal information indefinitely for the purposes of maintaining your account, unless and until you delete your account. Data that we gather for a specific and particular purpose, such as assisting law enforcement or analyzing trends, will not be kept for longer than is necessary for that particular purpose. Data that is no longer needed by us for any of the purposes listed above will be permanently deleted.
You may request that we delete your data at any time. However, note that we cannot control the retention policies of third parties. If you wish to have any third parties, including those to whom we’ve transmitted your data, delete that data, you will need to contact those third parties directly. You may request from us a list of all third parties to whom we have transmitted your data.
8. SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
We take all reasonable steps to protect your personal data and keep your information secure. We use recognized online secure payment systems and implement generally accepted standards of security to protect against personal data loss or misuse. However, no security measure is foolproof, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against interception or misuse.
