What is TEDi's legal basis for processing your personal data?
TEDi is subject to applicable regulations of the European Union General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR“) and Federal Data Protection Act (“BDSG”).
Consent and revocation
If you have given your consent to the processing of your personal data by TEDi, then this was done on a voluntary basis. You are entitled to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.
In order to exercise your right, you will have to notify TEDi (TEDi GmbH & Co. KG, “Data protection“ department, Brackeler Hellweg 301, 44309 Dortmund, datenschutz(at)tedi.com) with a clear statement (e.g. in a letter sent by mail, fax or email) about your decision to revoke your consent.
Consequences of the revocation
In case of revocation, the processing of your data until then will remain legal. After the revocation, your personal data can be further processed, if this is legally permissible, e.g. for invoices, or based on statutory retention periods, or in litigations before courts or authorities.
Disclosure of personal data?
TEDi does not sell your personal data.
TEDi discloses your personal data to third party controllers without your consent exclusively in exceptional cases to the extent permitted by law. For example, data may be transmitted to the relevant law enforcement authorities or, in the case of litigation, to courts within the scope of what is legally permitted in the event of suspected criminal offences.
If TEDi uses data processors, such as Cloud providers and other service providers, and passes on personal data to them, these providers will be selected very carefully. In addition, TEDi will agree with them on data protection policies in form of order processing agreements, and instruct and supervise them in accordance with applicable regulations.
TEDi may also commission order processors outside the European Union. Not all countries have a level of data protection equivalent to that of the European Union. If it is transmitted to a country with a lower level of data protection (e.g. the US), we will ensure adequate data protection in a suitable manner, such as through contractual agreements with the recipient.
You can obtain an up-to-date list of the order processors commissioned by TEDi. For information regarding a potential transfer of your data to countries outside the European Union, and how an adequate level of privacy is ensured, please refer to datenschutz(at)tedi.com.

NOTES REGARDING VIDEO SURVEILLANCE
In order to prevent and solve burglaries, theft and vandalism, as well as any other violations of the law, the corporate group of TEDi uses visible cameras for video surveillance at the branches as well as in the entrance area and on the premises of our headquarters in Dortmund which are used in compliance with the statutory regulations (Article 4 and Article 26 paragraph 1 of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit (f) of the GDPR).
By using the cameras, images of clients and employees can be saved and processed. It may also become necessary to transfer the data within the corporate group of TEDi for the purpose of further processing.
The recordings are generally deleted after 48 hours, unless they are required to solve violations of the law, or a prolonged retention is required and legally permissible, while the legitimate interests of the data subject are adequately protected. If criminal behaviour is uncovered during the evaluation of the video recordings, it can result in civil as well as criminal prosecution.
Details about the authority responsible for the processing of your personal data within the scope of the video surveillance can be found on the information placard hung up at all TEDi branches and at our headquarter in Dortmund on site where the video surveillance cameras are installed.
The corporate data protection officer is in charge of answering any further questions regarding video surveillance.
