Who is the data controller?
Responsible for data processing in accordance with the data protection laws:
Camelot ITLab GmbH
What personal data do we collect?
Personal data is information that can be used to determine your identity – such as your name, address, or telephone number. We collect personal data from our employees, applicants, suppliers, business contacts, partners, and website users.
Our website can be used without providing your personal data. If personal data is collected on our website, the provision of your data usually is no obligation but can be provided voluntarily.
For what purpose do we process personal data?
Camelot collects and uses personal data to provide the websites as well as our contents and services within the framework of the provisions of Art. 6 para. 1 a to f DSGVO, i.e. as far as the DSGVO or another legal provision allows it or the user has consented to the processing.
Regarding sensitive personal data
The term ‘sensitive personal data’ refers to the different categories of personal data for which European and other data protection law(s) define the need for specific treatment, including the need for explicit consent in certain circumstances.
Do we share your personal data with other Camelot companies and external parties?
We may share personal data with other Camelot companies that may be located in other countries. It may be necessary for us to provide our contracted service providers and consultants with access to the personal data you provide (e.g., if we host a joint event, forum, webinar).
For the transfer of personal data to a country outside the EU / EEA, we will always take the necessary steps to ensure adequate protection of your personal data in accordance with Art. 44 -49 DSGVO.
What about data security?
As an international company with global IT systems, we may route, store or transfer personal data collected by us internationally within the CAMELOT Group or from our suppliers in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
We take adequate measures to maintain the security of the personal data collected. With respect to your use of our website, you should be aware that due to the open nature of the Internet, information and personal data may flow over networks that connect you to our systems without security measures, and may be accessed and used by people who should not receive it. We would like to point out that data transmission over the internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
How long will your data be kept and what rights do you have regarding your stored data?
We store personal data only as long as it is necessary for the respective purpose of collection or as long as you have given your consent, as long as there are no legal obligations to the contrary, e.g. commercial or tax law retention periods.
You have the right to information about whether we have personal data about you. If this is the case, you can request access to this personal data and its correction if the data is incorrect.
In principle, we do not make decisions solely by automatic measures; however, should we do so, you have the right to object.
You can contact us at any time to exercise your rights.
Camelot complies with the data protection laws applicable in the European Economic Area, which, where applicable, include the following rights:
- If the processing of personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time with regard to future processing;
- You have the right to ask us to access, correct, or delete your personal data;
- You have the right to limit or object to the processing of your personal data;
- You have the right to data transferability;

How does Camelot use personal data for marketing purposes?
The majority of the personal data we collect and use for marketing purposes relates to individual employees of our customers with whom we maintain an existing business relationship. In addition, we may obtain contact information from public sources, including content published on public and social media websites, to establish initial contact with a relevant person at a customer or other company.
In accordance with applicable marketing regulations, we send promotional emails to individuals at our customers’ premises or at those of other companies with whom we intend to establish or maintain a business relationship. For existing business relationships, we use the mailing tool CleverReach. Our targeted e-mail messages (e.g. as part of a mailing campaign for trade fairs, forums, webinars, business breakfasts) contain cookies and similar technologies that allow us to find out whether you have opened an e-mail message we have sent.
When you click on a link in a marketing e-mail sent by Camelot, we use a cookie to record which pages were viewed, which hyperlinks were clicked, and what content was downloaded from our websites.
CleverReach GmbH & Co KG, Schafjueckenweg 2,26180 Rastede, Germany (https://www.cleverreach.com/en/privacy-policy)
Targeted e-mails from Camelot may contain additional privacy information as required by applicable law.
Where do we store your data?
Like all large companies, Camelot uses a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) database technology to manage and track our marketing efforts. Our CRM databases contain personal data of individuals at our customers and other companies with whom we already have a business relationship or wish to establish one. Personal data used for these purposes includes relevant business information, such as contact information, publicly available information, your responses to targeted e-mails (including web activity to follow the links contained in our e-mails) and other business information provided by Camelot employees based on their personal interaction with you. If you wish to be excluded from the CRM databases, please contact our Privacy Office.
What rights do you have to restrict / stop marketing communication?
You may exercise your right to opt-out of marketing communications with you by ticking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your personal data or by using the opt-out mechanism in the emails we send to you. You may also opt out of marketing communications or have your personal data removed from our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) database at any time. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for this purpose.
In these cases, we will retain a minimum of personal data to record that you have been removed from marketing communications to prevent you from being contacted again.
