Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enter­prise. Data protection is of a parti­cu­larly high priority for the management of the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG. The use of the Internet pages of the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enter­prise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.

 

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 the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG. By means of this data protection decla­ration, our enter­prise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection decla­ration, of the rights to which they are entitled.

 

As the controller, the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG has imple­mented numerous technical and organi­za­tional measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. 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.

  1. Cookies

 

The Internet pages of the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

 

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to diffe­ren­tiate the individual browser of the dats subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

 

Through the use of cookies, the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

 

By means of a cookie, the infor­mation and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user‘s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in an online shop. The online store remembers the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

 

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corre­sponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus perman­ently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

 

  1. Collection of general data and infor­mation

 

The website of the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG collects a series of general data and infor­mation when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and infor­mation are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and infor­mation that may be used in the event of attacks on our infor­mation technology systems.

 

When using these general data and infor­mation, the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG does not draw any conclu­sions about the data subject. Rather, this infor­mation is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its adver­ti­sement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our infor­mation technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement autho­rities with the infor­mation necessary for criminal prose­cution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG analyzes anony­mously collected data and infor­mation statis­ti­cally, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enter­prise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separ­ately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

 

  1. Comments function in the blog on the website

 

The INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG offers users the possi­bility to leave individual comments on individual blog contri­bu­tions on a blog, which is on the website of the controller. A blog is a web-based, publicly-acces­sible portal, through which one or more people called bloggers or web-bloggers may post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blogposts. Blogposts may usually be commented by third parties.

 

If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, the comments made by the data subject are also stored and published, as well as infor­mation on the date of the commentary and on the user‘s (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject. In addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the data subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons, and in case the data subject violates the rights of third parties, or posts illegal content through a given comment. The storage of these personal data is, therefore, in the own interest of the data controller, so that he can exculpate in the event of an infrin­gement. This collected personal data will not be passed to third parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the aim of the defense of the data controller.

 

  1. Subscription to comments in the blog on the website

 

The comments made in the blog of the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG may be subscribed to by third parties. In parti­cular, there is the possi­bility that a commenter subscribes to the comments following his comments on a parti­cular blog post.

 

If a data subject decides to subscribe to the option, the controller will send an automatic confir­mation e-mail to check the double opt-in procedure as to whether the owner of the specified e-mail address decided in favor of this option. The option to subscribe to comments may be termi­nated at any time.

 

  1. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

 

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legis­lator or other legis­lators in laws or regula­tions to which the controller is subject to.

 

If the storage purpose is not appli­cable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legis­lator or another competent legis­lator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requi­re­ments.

 

  1. Rights of the data subject

 

  1. a) Right of confir­mation

  1. d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)

 

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legis­lator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay where one of the following grounds applies, as long as the processing is not necessary:

The personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

The data subject withdraws consent to which the processing is based according to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, and where there is no other legal ground for the processing.

The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.

The personal data have been unlaw­fully processed.

The personal data must be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.

The personal data have been collected in relation to the offer of infor­mation society services referred to in Article 8(1) of the GDPR.

 

If one of the afore­men­tioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller. An employee of INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.

 

Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of imple­men­tation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or repli­cation of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required. An employees of the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.

The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.

The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of their use instead.

The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by the data subject for the estab­lishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the verifi­cation whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

 

If one of the afore­men­tioned condi­tions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of the processing of personal data stored by the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG, he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller. The employee of the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG will arrange the restriction of the processing.

 

 

  1. f) Right to data porta­bility

 

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legis­lator, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a controller, in a struc­tured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she shall have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, as long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the perfor­mance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

 

Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data porta­bility pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to have personal data trans­mitted directly from one controller to another, where techni­cally feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

 

In order to assert the right to data porta­bility, the data subject may at any time contact any employee of the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG.

 

 

  1. g) Right to object

 

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legis­lator to object, on grounds relating to his or her parti­cular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provi­sions.

 

The INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demons­trate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the estab­lishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

 

If the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

 

In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her parti­cular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her by the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG for scien­tific or histo­rical research purposes, or for statis­tical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the perfor­mance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

 

In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact any employee of the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG. In addition, the data subject is free in the context of the use of infor­mation society services, and notwi­th­standing Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by automated means using technical speci­fi­ca­tions.

 

 

  1. h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

 

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legis­lator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her, or similarly signi­fi­cantly affects him or her, as long as the decision (1) is not is necessary for entering into, or the perfor­mance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is not autho­rised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject‘s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on the data subject‘s explicit consent.

 

If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the perfor­mance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject‘s explicit consent, the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject‘s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human inter­vention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.

 

If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG.

 

 

  1. i) Right to withdraw data protection consent

 

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legis­lator to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her personal data at any time.

 

If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the INNOTECT GmbH & Co. KG.

 

 

  1. Data protection for appli­ca­tions and the appli­cation proce­dures

 

The data controller shall collect and process the personal data of appli­cants for the purpose of the processing of the appli­cation procedure. The processing may also be carried out electro­ni­cally. This is the case, in parti­cular, if an applicant submits corre­sponding appli­cation documents by e-mail or by means of a web form on the website to the controller. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relati­onship in compliance with legal requi­re­ments. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant by the controller, the appli­cation documents shall be automa­ti­cally erased two months after notifi­cation of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller are opposed to the erasure. Other legitimate interest in this relation is, e.g. a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

 

  1. Data protection provi­sions about the appli­cation and use of Facebook

 

On this website, the controller has integrated components of the enter­prise Facebook. Facebook is a social network.

 

A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online community, which usually allows users to commu­nicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experi­ences, or enable the Internet community to provide personal or business-related infor­mation. Facebook allows social network users to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.

 

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a person lives outside of the United States or Canada, the controller is the Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

 

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet website, which is operated by the controller and into which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-ins) was integrated, the web browser on the infor­mation technology system of the data subject is automa­ti­cally prompted to download display of the corre­sponding Facebook component from Facebook through the Facebook component. An overview of all the Facebook Plug-ins may be accessed under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of what specific sub-site of our website was visited by the data subject.

 

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook, Facebook detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This infor­mation is collected through the Facebook component and associated with the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our website, e.g. the „Like“ button, or if the data subject submits a comment, then Facebook matches this infor­mation with the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.

 

Facebook always receives, through the Facebook component, infor­mation about a visit to our website by the data subject, whenever the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook during the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a trans­mission of infor­mation to Facebook is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Facebook account before a call-up to our website is made.

 

The data protection guideline published by Facebook, which is available at https://facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides infor­mation about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. In addition, it is explained there what setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, different confi­gu­ration options are made available to allow the elimi­nation of data trans­mission to Facebook. These appli­ca­tions may be used by the data subject to eliminate a data trans­mission to Facebook.

 

  1. Data protection provi­sions about the appli­cation and use of Google Analytics (with anony­mi­zation function)

 

On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anony­mizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimi­zation of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet adver­tising.

 

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphi­theatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043–1351, United States.

 

For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the appli­cation „_gat. _anonymizeIp“. By means of this appli­cation the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anony­mised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

 

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and infor­mation, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.

 

Google Analytics places a cookie on the infor­mation technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the infor­mation technology system of the data subject will automa­ti­cally submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online adver­tising and the settlement of commis­sions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enter­prise Google gains knowledge of personal infor­mation, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to under­stand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subse­quently create commission settle­ments.

 

The cookie is used to store personal infor­mation, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be trans­mitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

 

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corre­sponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus perman­ently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the infor­mation technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.

 

In addition, the data subject has the possi­bility of objecting to a collection of data that are generated by Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the data subject must download a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and infor­mation about the visits of Internet pages may not be trans­mitted to Google Analytics. The instal­lation of the browser add-ons is consi­dered an objection by Google. If the infor­mation technology system of the data subject is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the data subject must reinstall the browser add-ons to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on was uninstalled by the data subject or any other person who is attri­bu­table to their sphere of compe­tence, or is disabled, it is possible to execute the reinstal­lation or reactivation of the browser add-ons.

 

Further infor­mation and the appli­cable data protection provi­sions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.

 

  1. Data protection provi­sions about the appli­cation and use of Google+

 

On this website, the controller has integrated the Google+ button as a component. Google+ is a so-called social network. A social network is a social meeting place on the Internet, an online community, which usually allows users to commu­nicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experi­ences, or enable the Internet community to provide personal or business-related infor­mation. Google+ allows users of the social network to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos and network through friend requests.

 

The operating company of Google+ is Google Inc., 1600 Amphi­theatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043–1351, UNITED STATES.

 

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google+ button has been integrated, the Internet browser on the infor­mation technology system of the data subject automa­ti­cally downloads a display of the corre­sponding Google+ button of Google through the respective Google+ button component. During the course of this technical procedure, Google is made aware of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject. More detailed infor­mation about Google+ is available under https://developers.google.com/+/.

 

If the data subject is logged in at the same time to Google+, Google recognizes with each call-up to our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of his or her stay on our Internet site, which specific sub-pages of our Internet page were visited by the data subject. This infor­mation is collected through the Google+ button and Google matches this with the respective Google+ account associated with the data subject.

 

If the data subject clicks on the Google+ button integrated on our website and thus gives a Google+ 1 recom­men­dation, then Google assigns this infor­mation to the personal Google+ user account of the data subject and stores the personal data. Google stores the Google+ 1 recom­men­dation of the data subject, making it publicly available in accordance with the terms and condi­tions accepted by the data subject in this regard. Subse­quently, a Google+ 1 recom­men­dation given by the data subject on this website together with other personal data, such as the Google+ account name used by the data subject and the stored photo, is stored and processed on other Google services, such as search-engine results of the Google search engine, the Google account of the data subject or in other places, e.g. on Internet pages, or in relation to adver­ti­se­ments. Google is also able to link the visit to this website with other personal data stored on Google. Google further records this personal infor­mation with the purpose of improving or optimizing the various Google services.

 

Through the Google+ button, Google receives infor­mation that the data subject visited our website, if the data subject at the time of the call-up to our website is logged in to Google+. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks or doesn’t click on the Google+ button.

 

If the data subject does not wish to transmit personal data to Google, he or she may prevent such trans­mission by logging out of his Google+ account before calling up our website.

 

Further infor­mation and the data protection provi­sions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. More references from Google about the Google+ 1 button may be obtained under https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy.

 

  1. Data protection provi­sions about the appli­cation and use of Google-AdWords

 

On this website, the controller has integrated Google AdWords. Google AdWords is a service for Internet adver­tising that allows the adver­tiser to place ads in Google search engine results and the Google adver­tising network. Google AdWords allows an adver­tiser to pre-define specific keywords with the help of which an ad on Google‘s search results only then displayed, when the user utilizes the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. In the Google Adver­tising Network, the ads are distri­buted on relevant web pages using an automatic algorithm, taking into account the previously defined keywords.

 

The operating company of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphi­theatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043–1351, UNITED STATES.

 

The purpose of Google AdWords is the promotion of our website by the inclusion of relevant adver­tising on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of the search engine Google and an insertion of third-party adver­tising on our website.

 

If a data subject reaches our website via a Google ad, a conversion cookie is filed on the infor­mation technology system of the data subject through Google. The definition of cookies is explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after 30 days and is not used to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to check whether certain sub-pages, e.g, the shopping cart from an online shop system, were called up on our website. Through the conversion cookie, both Google and the controller can under­stand whether a person who reached an AdWords ad on our website generated sales, that is, executed or canceled a sale of goods.

 

The data and infor­mation collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are used in order to determine the total number of users who have been served through AdWords ads to ascertain the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads in the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords adver­tisers receive infor­mation from Google that could identify the data subject.

 

The conversion cookie stores personal infor­mation, e.g. the Internet pages visited by the data subject. Each time we visit our Internet pages, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, is trans­mitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

 

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as stated above, by means of a corre­sponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus perman­ently deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a conversion cookie on the infor­mation technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie set by Google AdWords may be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

 

The data subject has a possi­bility of objecting to the interest based adver­ti­sement of Google. Therefore, the data subject must access from each of the browsers in use the link www.google.de/settings/ads and set the desired settings.

  1. Data protection provi­sions about the appli­cation and use of Xing

 

On this website, the controller has integrated components of XING. XING is an Internet-based social network that enables users to connect with existing business contacts and to create new business contacts. The individual users can create a personal profile of themselves at XING. Companies may, e.g. create company profiles or publish jobs on XING.

 

The operating company of XING is XING SE, Dammtor­straße 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.

 

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a XING component (XING plug-in) was integrated, the Internet browser on the infor­mation technology system of the data subject is automa­ti­cally prompted to download a display of the corre­sponding XING component of XING. Further infor­mation about the XING plug-in the may be accessed under https://dev.xing.com/plugins. During the course of this technical procedure, XING gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

 

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on XING, XING detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-page of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This infor­mation is collected through the XING component and associated with the respective XING account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on the XING button integrated on our Internet site, e.g. the „Share“-button, then XING assigns this infor­mation to the personal XING user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.

 

XING receives infor­mation via the XING component that the data subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is logged in at XING at the time of the call to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the XING component or not. If such a trans­mission of infor­mation to XING is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she can prevent this by logging off from their XING account before a call-up to our website is made.

 

The data protection provi­sions published by XING, which is available under https://www.xing.com/privacy, provide infor­mation on the collection, processing and use of personal data by XING. In addition, XING has published privacy notices for the XING share button under https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection.

 

  1. Data protection provi­sions about the appli­cation and use of YouTube

 

On this website, the controller has integrated components of YouTube. YouTube is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to set video clips and other users free of charge, which also provides free viewing, review and commenting on them. YouTube allows you to publish all kinds of videos, so you can access both full movies and TV broad­casts, as well as music videos, trailers, and videos made by users via the Internet portal.

 

The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, UNITED STATES. The YouTube, LLC is a subsi­diary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphi­theatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043–1351, UNITED STATES.

 

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) was integrated, the Internet browser on the infor­mation technology system of the data subject is automa­ti­cally prompted to download a display of the corre­sponding YouTube component. Further infor­mation about YouTube may be obtained under https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. During the course of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google gain knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

 

If the data subject is logged in on YouTube, YouTube recognizes with each call-up to a sub-page that contains a YouTube video, which specific sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the data subject. This infor­mation is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.

 

YouTube and Google will receive infor­mation through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website, if the data subject at the time of the call to our website is logged in on YouTube; this occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such a trans­mission of this infor­mation to YouTube and Google is not desirable for the data subject, the delivery may be prevented if the data subject logs off from their own YouTube account before a call-up to our website is made.

 

YouTube‘s data protection provi­sions, available at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/, provide infor­mation about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

 

  1. Legal basis for the processing

 

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing opera­tions for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the perfor­mance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing opera­tions are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing opera­tions which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obliga­tions, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital infor­mation would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing opera­tions could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing opera­tions which are not covered by any of the above­men­tioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or funda­mental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing opera­tions are parti­cu­larly permis­sible because they have been speci­fi­cally mentioned by the European legis­lator. He consi­dered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

 

  1. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party

 

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the share­holders.

 

  1. Period for which the personal data will be stored

 

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corre­sponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.

 

  1. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requi­rement; Requi­rement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible conse­quences of failure to provide such data

 

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regula­tions) or can also result from contractual provi­sions (e.g. infor­mation on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subse­quently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the conse­quence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the conse­quences of non-provision of the personal data.

 

  1. Existence of automated decision-making
