Data Privacy Statement Overview
Purpose & Definitions
The data controller in the sense of the European data protection laws is Lufthansa Technik AG.
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (data subject); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Processing is any operation which is performed on personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
1 Collecting and processing of personal data
It is not possible to use MROradar anonymously as MROradar requires a registration.
1.1 Data processed in the registration process
During the registration process you will be asked to provide mandatory information which includes the following personal data:
Your name (First, last name)
Your business email address
This mandatory information is marked as such. In the event a registration has not been completed, the data will not be saved.
1.2 Data processed while using MROradar
We will collect personal data that you enter or provide to us while using MROradar. For example the following personal data can be entered in the profile settings of your account:
additional contact details, like business phone number (optional)
It will be optional to provide this information.
Furthermore we will collect data related to the activities you will perform within the application. This will be a timestamped link between your user profile and the data you create / alter while using certain functions such as comments, create/publish RFPs, or create/submit proposals.
These commercial data will be kept safely stored and not accessible to anyone not related/invited to your RFP or proposal. LHT as platform operator will only use the data for the purposes specified in section 2. It will not be diverted from its intended use. All LHT departments not related to the MROradar team will act as normal platform users and are customers to MROradar as all other parties.
1.3 Data automatically processed from Users
Every time you use the internet your internet browser will automatically transfer certain information that we will store in so-called log-files.
The log-files will solely be stored for the detection of malfunctions and security reasons (e.g. attack detection) for a period between seven and ten days. Log-files will be stored for a longer period of time and might be transferred to investigating authorities if they are needed as evidence if an incident took place. They will be subject to restriction of processing upon the final clearance of the matter.
In particular, log-files include the following information:
IP address of the network from which the online service is accessed,
Date and time of request,
Size of transferred data,
URI of the accessed data,
Operating system and information regarding the internet browser used, including add-ons,
HTTP Response Status Code
For special forms of automatic data processing, such as cookies, please refer to section 6.
2 Purposes of data processing
We may evaluate, retain and use the information provided to us and the data generated from your use of the services only and exclusively limited to the following purposes:
2.1 Offer our service
The main purpose to process personal data is to ensure the functionality of MROradar. If you use MROradar the above mentioned personal data as well as information about activities you performed within the application will be accessible to other users of the platform that you collaborate with (i.e. users of your company or users of another company that is assigned to the RFP). For example, users who are authorized by a company to see RFP relevant information of a joint project will be able to see and access the information you share as well as your contact details on MROradar.
2.2 Prevent abuse and legal defense
To comply with our legal requirements, enforce our Terms & Conditions, respond to claims that content violates the rights of others, or protect anyone's rights, property or safety we might use the personal data provided by your side.
2.3 Keep you informed
From time to time we might contact you to inform you about critical service updates or other information which is important to support our service. We may also contact you to ensure that information we have in our records is accurate or when in need of additional information to complete your profile.
2.4 Improve our services
In order to improve our service we might contact you to receive feedback and comments from you about our services and inquire about any features you would like to see in future offerings. We may also contact you to ask for your satisfaction rate.
2.5 Statistical purposes
To provide, customize, measure and improve our Services with a focus on the content we might use personal data in order to assist us for our own internal statistical and analytical purposes. No person-related analysis of the data will be carried out. (Commercial data from RFPs and proposals will neither be used for statistical purposes, nor other evaluations will be conducted.)
3 Transfer of data and duration storage
3.1 Transfer of data to third parties
Your personal data will only be transferred to third parties if we or a third party have a legitimate interest in the transfer or you granted us your consent to the transfer. A legitimate interest is the securing of a safe and stable operation of the application. We may also transfer personal data which has been rendered anonymous to third parties for statistical purposes. Commercial data will not be transferred to other providers in any case.
Additionally, personal data might be transferred to third parties if we are obliged to transfer the data by German statutory provisions or by an enforceable order of a German court or administrative authority.
3.2 External service providers
We reserve the right to appoint external service providers for the collection and use of personal data. These service providers will only have access to data they need for the performance of their services. Service providers will generally be appointed as commissioned data processors which are only allowed to process the personal data according to our instructions.
3.3 Duration of storage
We will store your personal data as long as we have a legitimate interest in the storage meaning as long as you are using the application as a registered user. In all other cases we will delete your personal data with the exception of those data that we need to store further in order to comply with contractual or statutory retention periods. Data which is only kept because it is subject to a retention period will be blocked for other uses.
4 Rights of the data subject
You have the right of access to your personal data and - if certain prerequisites are present - also to correction, to erasure, to limitation of the data processing and a right to data portability.

You have the right to rectification of inaccurate personal data. In your profile settings you are able to see, review and change your personal information, like contact information or your profile picture, after signing in to your account. Please update your personal information immediately if it changes or is inaccurate.

You have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you. You can do so by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

You especially have the right to object if personal data concerning you is processed for direct marketing purposes.
4.7 Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
MROradar does not support the user with any automated individual decision-making, including profiling.
5 Data security
At Lufthansa Technik we take reasonable technical and organizational measures to guard against unauthorized or unlawful processing of the information collected and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your personal data.
While no system is completely secure, we believe the measures implemented by our side reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. This includes encrypting the transmission of sensitive information using transport socket layer technology, as well as safeguarding your data through firewalls, data encryption and authentication procedures in order to maintain the security of your active session and to protect your personal data and the Services from unauthorized access.

11.Warranty and liability of LHT
11.1 As far as LHT is not a party to the RFP Process conducted via MROradar in accordance with clause 2.3 of the Terms, LHT is not liable for any RFP Process conducted via MROradar.

11.3 LHT shall use reasonable efforts to make and maintain MROradar available via the internet. However, like other online services MROradar's availability depends on services by third parties and also requires technical maintenance.

LHT endeavours to announce scheduled maintenance of MROradar well in advance.
11.4 LHT shall be liable for damages resulting from injury to life, body or health, for damages resulting from intentionally or grossly negligent acts or omissions by LHT, an employee or representative of LHT in accordance with the statutory provisions. For damages resulting from slight negligence acts or omissions by LHT, an employee or representative of LHT, LHT shall be only liable in events of a breach of a cardinal duty, i. e. those duties which are material to the proper performance of the contract and on the fulfilment of which the other party generally relies or is entitled to rely. In this case LHT's liability shall be limited to the typical, foreseeable damage (excluding loss in profits and indirect damages).
The User indemnifies and holds harmless LHT from and against any claims of third parties as well as any loss and damage (including any and all costs incurred hereby), resulting from,
- the use of MROradar by the User which is not in compliance with these Terms; and
- claims of a third party based on the allegation that the use of MROradar infringes a right of a third party;
- claims of a third party, including administrative orders, based on the allegation that the use of MROradar by the User infringes any applicable law or regulation.
14.Dispute, applicable law and jurisdiction
14.1 In the event of any dispute or disagreement between a User and LHT in relation to these Terms, either User or LHT may notify the other party in writing that there is a dispute to be resolved under this clause (a "Dispute Notice"). Following receipt of the Dispute Notice by the relevant party, the parties will attempt to resolve and bring an end to the dispute or disagreement. If the parties at the working level cannot resolve the dispute within thirty (30) Days from the date of receipt of the Dispute Notice by the relevant party, the parties will refer the dispute or disagreement to such senior officers as designated by each respective party for resolution. If resolution is not reached within further thirty (30) Days from the date of receipt of the Dispute Notice by the relevant party, then the parties may each pursue other remedies available under these Terms or applicable law.
14.2 Clause 14.1 does not prevent a party from seeking from a court of competent jurisdiction any equitable, interim, or provisional relief to avoid irreparable harm or injury.
14.3 These Terms shall be subject to, interpreted and construed in accordance with the laws of Germany. The UN Convention on International Sale of Goods (CISG) shall not apply. Place of jurisdiction for all disputes resulting from or based on this contractual relationship is Hamburg, Germany.
15.1 Users may not assign any of their rights and/or obligations under the Terms or part thereof to a third party without the prior written consent of LHT. Users agree that LHT may assign any of its rights and/or obligations under the Terms in total or in part to a company directly or indirectly controlled by or jointly held with a third party by Deutsche Lufthansa Aktiengesellschaft. Users shall be informed by LHT about such assignment in due time.
15.2 Unless explicitly stated otherwise herein, these Terms shall not be varied in terms or amended except by an instrument in writing explicitly named an amendment to these Terms and signed by duly authorized representatives of the Parties. Verbal agreements reached during the negotiations or during the period of these Terms shall not be binding upon either party unless and until mutually confirmed in writing.
15.3 Failure by either party to enforce any of the provisions of these Terms shall not be construed as a waiver of such provisions.
15.4 If any of the provisions of these Terms are held unlawful or otherwise ineffective by any court of competent jurisdiction, the remainder of these Terms shall remain in full force and the unlawful or otherwise ineffective provision shall be substituted by a new provision mutually agreed upon by the parties reflecting the intent of the provision so substituted.
15.5 Nothing in these Terms creates, implies or evidences any partnership or joint venture between the parties, or the relationship between them of principal and agent. None of the parties has any authority to make any representation or commitment, or incur any liability, on behalf of any other.
15.6 LHT reserves the right to amend the Terms without stating reasons at any time. Users shall receive the amended Terms via email and/or via a notification on MROradar no later than two (2) weeks before the new Terms will come into effect. In the event User does not object the new Terms within two weeks after receiving the email and/or notification, the new Terms are deemed accepted. In the event User objects the new Terms LHT may terminate the User's Account(s).
