As an IT company that accepts its responsibilities, we highly value the security of your data and privacy. In order to ensure that you are fully aware of the collection and use of personal data on our websites, we ask you to take note of the following.
Responsible office for data protection in accordance by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR):
Dipl.-Inform. (univ.) Robert Schäfer
To exercise your rights, you can contact our Data-Protection Officer any time to:
- – Obtain information on data we have stored and its processing
- – Amend incorrect personal data
- – Delete data we have saved
- – Restrict data processing if we are not yet entitled to delete your data due to legal obligations
- – Object to our processing of your data
- – Transmit data if you have given your consent to process your data or entered in an agreement with us on this matter
You can revoke your consent for future data processing any time.
Purpose of Data Processing by the Responsible Office and Third Parties
Processing of your data will only occur for purposes set forth in this privacy statement. We will not transfer your personal data to third parties for purposes other than specified herein. We will only share your personal data with third parties, if:
- – You have given your express written consent
- – Data processing is required to perform a contract
- – Data processing is required to comply with a legal obligation
Data processing is required to safeguard justified interests and there is no reason to assume that you have any overriding interest in not disclosing your data.
Collection of General Information when Visiting our Website
When you access our website information of a general nature will be collected using cookies. This information (server log-files) includes the browser type, operating system, domain name of your internet provider as well as similar information. The information collected does not allow any conclusion whatsoever regarding your identity.
Yet, collecting this information is technically required to provide the requested contents from our websites and, hence, is mandatory when using the internet. Most common purposes of this information:
- – Ensure easy connection to the website
- – Ensure smooth operation of our website
- – Evaluate system security and stability
- – Further administration
Processing of your data is based on our rightful interests originating from the aforementioned purposes for data collection. We will not use your data to draw conclusions regarding you as an individual. The recipients of the data are the responsible office and external processors, where applicable.
We may statistically evaluate anonymous information of this kind to optimize our web presence and the technology it is based on.
Like many other websites, we use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files transferred by the website server to your hard disk. This results in the automatic collection of specific data, such as IP address, browser type, operating system and your internet connection.
Cookies cannot start programs or infect your computer with viruses. Through the information stored in the cookies, we can facilitate navigation and the correct display of our web pages.
We will never share this data with third parties, nor will we connect this data with your personal details without your consent.
You may also view our website without accepting the cookies. Though browser settings accept cookies by default, you can disable cookies any time in your browser’s settings. Refer to your browser’s help topics to learn how to change these settings. Also, note that some of our website features may not work if cookies are disabled.
Pseudonymous User Profile
On our website data is collected and stored using the web analysis service software Matomo (www.matomo.org) based on our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing purposes in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) of the German Data Protection Act (DSGVO).
From this data, pseudonymized user profiles will be created and evaluated for the same purpose. In this context, cookies can be used. The data collected using Matomo technology (including your pseudonymized IP address) is only processed on our servers.
The information generated by a cookie in the pseudonymized user profile is not used to identify the visitor to this website and is not merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym.
If you do not agree with the storage and evaluation of this data from your visit, you can object to its storage and use at any time with a mouse click. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is stored in your browser, which means that the Matomo software does not collect any session data. Please note that the complete deletion of your cookies means that the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and may have to be reactivated by you.
Registration on our Website
When you register for the use of personalized services, we collect some personal data, e.g. name, address, contact details such as telephone number and e-mail address. If you register, you will have access to contents and services reserved for registered users. Registered users may also change or delete data they have entered upon registration. As a matter of course, you can request information on your stored personal data any time or its correction or deletion if not stipulated otherwise by legal-retention provisions. To contact us on this matter, use the contact data at the end of this privacy statement.
To ensure the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) and HTTPS.
Following your express consent, we will send you regular newsletters and similar information by e-mail to the address specified. For technical reasons, you will not be able to register for the newsletter at present.
You can revoke the consent given to store your personal data and its use for the newsletter any time, using the unregister link provided in each newsletter.
We use social media to improve communication with our customers. Though we have no control of the handling of data by the social-media provider, we will subject this data to continuous monitoring. Our “Social-Media Guidelines” set forth the use of social media.
- – LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy?_l=en_EN)
- – Youtube (https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=en)
- – Xing (https://privacy.xing.com/de/datenschutzerklaerung)
- – Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/policy.php)
- – Whatsapp (https://www.whatsapp.com/legal/?lang=en)
Using our contact form for e-mail requests or questions of any matter, you voluntary consent to be contacted by us. This requires a valid e-mail address that identifies the request and its response. Specification of additional data is optional. Information provided is stored for processing purposes and for follow-up requests. Personal data will be deleted automatically following the settlement of your request.
Embedded YouTube Videos
We embed YouTube videos on some of our web pages. The plug-in operator is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a page containing the YouTube plug-in you will be connected to the YouTube servers. This tells YouTube which pages you visit. Being logged on with your YouTube account enables YouTube to link your surf behavior to you as an individual. To prevent this, log off from your YouTube account.
Cookies collecting information on the user behavior are used whenever you start a YouTube video.
Disabling cookies for Google-Ad also disables cookies for YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal information in other cookies. To prevent this, block cookies in your browser.
For further information regarding data protection on YouTube, refer to the provider’s privacy statement: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/
Changes to our Privacy Statement
We reserve the right to adjust this privacy statement to comply with changing legal requirements or to implement changes regarding our services (e.g. for new services). The new privacy statement takes effect when you revisit our website.
