To do so, you may con­tact us at any time at the ad­dress pro­vi­ded in sec­tion “In­for­ma­ti­on Re­qui­red by Law.” The right to de­mand re­stric­tion of pro­ces­sing ap­p­lies in the fol­lo­wing ca­ses:

  • In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.

  • If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.

  • If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its eradication.

  • If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.

4. Re­cor­ding of data on this web­site

Cookies

Our web­sites and pa­ges use what the in­dus­try re­fers to as “coo­kies.” Coo­kies are small text files that do not cau­se any da­ma­ge to your de­vice. They are eit­her stored tem­pora­ri­ly for the du­ra­ti­on of a ses­si­on (ses­si­on coo­kies) or they are per­man­ent­ly ar­chi­ved on your de­vice (per­ma­nent coo­kies). Ses­si­on coo­kies are au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly de­le­ted once you ter­mi­na­te your vi­sit. Per­ma­nent coo­kies re­main ar­chi­ved on your de­vice un­til you ac­tive­ly de­le­te them or they are au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly era­di­ca­ted by your web brow­ser.

In some ca­ses it is pos­si­ble that third par­ty coo­kies are stored on your de­vice once you en­ter our site (third par­ty coo­kies). The­se coo­kies enable you or us to take ad­van­ta­ge of cer­tain ser­vices of­fe­red by the third par­ty (e.g. coo­kies for the pro­ces­sing of pay­ment ser­vices).

Coo­kies have a va­rie­ty of func­tions. Many coo­kies are tech­ni­cal­ly es­sen­ti­al sin­ce cer­tain web­site func­tions would not work in the ab­sence of the coo­kies (e.g. the shop­ping cart func­tion or the dis­play of vi­de­os). The pur­po­se of other coo­kies may be the ana­ly­sis of user pat­terns or the dis­play of pro­mo­tio­nal mes­sa­ges.

Coo­kies, which are re­qui­red for the per­for­mance of elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on tran­sac­tions (re­qui­red coo­kies) or for the pro­vi­si­on of cer­tain func­tions you want to use (func­tio­nal coo­kies, e.g. for the shop­ping cart func­tion) or tho­se that are ne­cessa­ry for the op­ti­miza­t­i­on of the web­site (e.g. coo­kies that pro­vi­de mea­sura­ble in­sights into the web au­di­ence), shall be stored on the ba­sis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, un­less a dif­fe­rent le­gal ba­sis is ci­ted. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in the sto­r­a­ge of coo­kies to en­su­re the tech­ni­cal­ly er­ror free and op­ti­mi­zed pro­vi­si­on of the ope­ra­tor’s ser­vices. If your con­sent to the sto­r­a­ge of the coo­kies has been re­quested, the re­spec­tive coo­kies are stored ex­clu­si­ve­ly on the ba­sis of the con­sent ob­tai­ned (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR); this con­sent may be re­vo­ked at any time.

You have the op­ti­on to set up your brow­ser in such a man­ner that you will be no­ti­fied any time coo­kies are pla­ced and to per­mit the ac­cep­tan­ce of coo­kies only in spe­ci­fic ca­ses. You may also ex­clu­de the ac­cep­tan­ce of coo­kies in cer­tain ca­ses or in ge­ne­ral or ac­tiva­te the de­le­te func­tion for the au­to­ma­tic era­di­ca­ti­on of coo­kies when the brow­ser clo­ses. If coo­kies are de­ac­tiva­ted, the func­tions of this web­site may be li­mi­ted.

In the event that third par­ty coo­kies are used or if coo­kies are used for ana­ly­ti­cal pur­po­ses, we will se­pa­ra­te­ly no­ti­fy you in con­junc­tion with this Data Pro­tec­tion Po­li­cy and, if ap­p­lica­ble, ask for your con­sent.

This shall be wi­thout pre­ju­di­ce to any man­da­to­ry le­gal re­ten­ti­on pe­ri­ods.

User­centrics uses coo­kies to ob­tain the de­cla­ra­ti­ons of con­sent man­da­ted by law. The le­gal ba­sis for the use of spe­ci­fic tech­no­lo­gies is Art. 6 Sect. 1 Sen­tence 1 lit. c GDPR.

This web­site uses func­tions of the web ana­ly­sis ser­vice Goog­le Ana­ly­tics. The pro­vi­der of this ser­vice is Goog­le Ire­land Li­mi­ted (“Goog­le”), Gor­don Hou­se, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ire­land.

Goog­le Ana­ly­tics enables the web­site ope­ra­tor to ana­ly­ze the be­ha­vi­or pat­terns of web­site vi­si­tors. To that end, the web­site ope­ra­tor re­cei­ves a va­rie­ty of user data, such as pa­ges ac­ces­sed, time spent on the page, the uti­li­zed ope­ra­ting sys­tem and the user’s ori­gin. Goog­le may con­so­li­da­te the­se data in a pro­fi­le that is al­lo­ca­ted to the re­spec­tive user or the user’s de­vice.

Goog­le Ana­ly­tics uses tech­no­lo­gies that make the re­co­gni­ti­on of the user for the pur­po­se of ana­ly­zing the user be­ha­vi­or pat­terns (e.g. coo­kies or de­vice fin­ger­prin­ting). The web­site use in­for­ma­ti­on re­cor­ded by Goog­le is, as a rule trans­fer­red to a Goog­le ser­ver in the United Sta­tes, whe­re it is stored.

This ana­ly­sis tool is used on the ba­sis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The ope­ra­tor of this web­site has a le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in the ana­ly­sis of user pat­terns to op­ti­mi­ze both, the ser­vices of­fe­red on­line and the ope­ra­tor’s ad­ver­ti­sing ac­tivi­ties. If a cor­re­spon­ding agree­ment has been re­quested (e.g. an agree­ment to the sto­r­a­ge of coo­kies), the pro­ces­sing ta­kes place ex­clu­si­ve­ly on the ba­sis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the
agree­ment can be re­vo­ked at any time.

IP anonymization

On this web­site, we have ac­tiva­ted the IP an­ony­miza­t­i­on func­tion. As a re­sult, your IP ad­dress will be ab­bre­via­ted by Goog­le wi­t­hin the mem­ber sta­tes of the Eu­ro­pean Uni­on or in other sta­tes that have ra­ti­fied the Con­ven­ti­on on the Eu­ro­pean Eco­no­mic Area pri­or to its trans­mis­si­on to the United Sta­tes. The full IP ad­dress will be trans­mit­ted to one of Goo­gle’s ser­vers in the United Sta­tes and ab­bre­via­ted the­re only in ex­cep­tio­nal ca­ses. On be­half of the ope­ra­tor of this web­site, Goog­le shall use this in­for­ma­ti­on to ana­ly­ze your use of this web­site to ge­ne­ra­te re­ports on web­site ac­tivi­ties and to ren­der other ser­vices to the ope­ra­tor of this web­site that are re­la­ted to the use of the web­site and the In­ter­net. The IP ad­dress trans­mit­ted in con­junc­tion with Goog­le Ana­ly­tics from your brow­ser shall not be mer­ged with other data in Goo­gle’s pos­ses­si­on.

Browser plug-in

You can prevent the re­cor­ding and pro­ces­sing of your data by Goog­le by down­loa­ding and in­stal­ling the brow­ser plu­gin avail­able un­der the fol­lo­wing link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Contract data processing

We have exe­cu­ted a contract data pro­ces­sing agree­ment with Goog­le and are im­ple­men­ting the strin­gent pro­vi­si­ons of the Ger­man data pro­tec­tion agen­cies to the fullest when using Goog­le Ana­ly­tics.

Demographic parameters provided by Google Analytics

This web­site uses the “de­mo­gra­phic cha­rac­te­ris­tics” func­tion of Goog­le Ana­ly­tics, to be able to dis­play to the web­site vi­si­tor com­pa­ti­ble ads wi­t­hin the Goog­le ad­ver­ti­sing net­work. This al­lows re­ports to be crea­ted that con­tain in­for­ma­ti­on about the age, gen­der and in­te­rests of the web­site vi­si­tors. The sour­ces of this in­for­ma­ti­on are in­te­rest-re­la­ted ad­ver­ti­sing by Goog­le as well as vi­si­tor data ob­tai­ned from third par­ty pro­vi­ders. This data can­not be al­lo­ca­ted to a spe­ci­fic in­di­vi­du­al. You have the op­ti­on to de­ac­tiva­te this func­tion at any time by ma­king per­ti­nent set­tings chan­ges for ad­ver­ti­sing in your Goog­le ac­count or you can ge­ne­ral­ly pro­hi­bit the re­cor­ding of your data by Goog­le Ana­ly­tics as ex­plai­ned in sec­tion “Ob­jec­tion to the re­cor­ding of data”.

Archiving period

Data on the user or in­ci­dent le­vel stored by Goog­le lin­ked to coo­kies, user IDs or ad­ver­ti­sing IDs (e.g. Dou­ble­Click coo­kies, An­dro­id ad­ver­ti­sing ID) will be an­ony­mi­zed or de­le­ted af­ter 14 month. For de­tails plea­se click the fol­lo­wing link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=en.


Google Ads

The web­site ope­ra­tor uses Goog­le Ads. Goog­le Ads is an on­line pro­mo­tio­nal pro­gram of Goog­le Ire­land Li­mi­ted (“Goog­le”), Gor­don Hou­se, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ire­land.

Goog­le Ads enables us to dis­play ads in the Goog­le se­arch en­gi­ne or on third par­ty web­sites, if the user en­ters cer­tain se­arch terms into Goog­le (key­word tar­ge­ting). It is also pos­si­ble to place tar­ge­ted ads ba­sed on the user data Goog­le has in its pos­ses­si­on (e.g. lo­ca­ti­on data and in­te­rests; tar­get group tar­ge­ting). As the web­site ope­ra­tor, we can ana­ly­ze the­se data quan­ti­ta­tive­ly, for in­stan­ce by ana­ly­zing which se­arch terms re­sul­ted in the dis­play of our ads and how many ads led to re­spec­tive clicks.

The use of Goog­le Ads is ba­sed on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. et seq. GDPR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in mar­ke­ting the ope­ra­tor’s ser­vices and pro­ducts as ef­fec­tive­ly as pos­si­ble.


Google Conversion-Tracking

This web­site uses Goog­le Con­ver­si­on Tracking. The pro­vi­der of this ser­vice is Goog­le Ire­land Li­mi­ted (“Goog­le”), Gor­don Hou­se, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ire­land.

With the as­sis­tan­ce of Goog­le Con­ver­si­on Tracking we are in a po­si­ti­on to re­co­gni­ze whe­ther the user has com­ple­ted cer­tain ac­tions. For in­stan­ce, we can ana­ly­ze the how fre­quent­ly which but­tons on our web­site have been cli­cked and which pro­ducts are re­view­ed or purcha­sed with par­ti­cu­lar fre­quen­cy. The pur­po­se of this in­for­ma­ti­on is to com­pi­le con­ver­si­on sta­tis­tics. We learn how many users have cli­cked on our ads and which ac­tions they have com­ple­ted. We do not re­cei­ve any in­for­ma­ti­on that would al­low us to per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fy the users. Goog­le as such uses coo­kies or com­pa­ra­ble re­co­gni­ti­on tech­no­lo­gies for iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on pur­po­ses.

We use Goog­le Con­ver­si­on Tracking on the ba­sis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. et seq. GDPR. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in the ana­ly­sis of the user pat­terns with the aim of op­ti­mi­zing both, the ope­ra­tor’s web pre­sen­ta­ti­on and ad­ver­ti­sing. If a re­spec­tive de­cla­ra­ti­on of con­sent was re­quested (e.g. con­cerning the sto­r­a­ge of coo­kies), pro­ces­sing shall oc­cur ex­clu­si­ve­ly on the ba­sis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR; the gi­ven con­sent may be re­vo­ked at any time.

For more in­for­ma­ti­on about Goog­le Con­ver­si­on Tracking, plea­se re­view Goo­gle’s data pro­tec­tion po­li­cy at:https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.
 

DoubleClick

We use on our web­site "Dou­ble­Click", an on­line mar­ke­ting tool pro­vi­ded by Goog­le Ire­land Li­mi­ted, Goog­le Buil­ding Gor­don Hou­se, Bar­row St, Dub­lin 4, Ire­land (her­einaf­ter re­fer­red to as "Goog­le"). Dou­ble­Click uses, among other things, coo­kies, which are small text files stored lo­cal­ly in the cache of your web brow­ser on your end de­vice. Goog­le uses a coo­kie ID to re­cord which ads are shown in which web brow­ser. This can be used to prevent ads from being shown more than once. Dou­ble­Click may also use coo­kie IDs to track con­ver­si­ons re­la­ted to ad re­quests. For ex­amp­le, if you see a Dou­ble­Click ad and la­ter go to the ad­ver­ti­ser's web­site using the same web brow­ser and buy so­me­thing. Ac­cor­ding to Goog­le, the afo­re­men­tio­ned coo­kies do not con­tain any per­so­nal data. By using Dou­ble­Click, your brow­ser au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly es­ta­blis­hes a di­rect con­nec­tion with the Goog­le ser­ver. We have no in­flu­ence on the scope and fur­ther use of the data collec­ted by Goog­le through the use of Dou­ble­Click. To the best of our know­ledge, Goog­le re­cei­ves the in­for­ma­ti­on that you have cal­led up the re­le­vant part of our web­site or cli­cked on an ad­ver­ti­se­ment from us. If you have a user ac­count with Goog­le and are re­gis­te­red, Goog­le can as­sign the vi­sit to your user ac­count. Even if you are not re­gis­te­red with Goog­le or have not log­ged in, it is pos­si­ble that Goog­le will find out and save your IP ad­dress.

We use Dou­ble­Click for mar­ke­ting and op­ti­mi­sa­ti­on pur­po­ses, in par­ti­cu­lar to dis­play ads that are re­le­vant and in­te­res­ting to you, to im­pro­ve cam­pai­gn per­for­mance re­ports or to prevent you from see­ing the same ads more than once. This is also our le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in the pro­ces­sing of the above data by the third par­ty pro­vi­der. The le­gal ba­sis is Art. 6 para. 1 sen­tence 1 lit. f) GDPR.

You can prevent the in­stal­la­ti­on of coo­kies by de­le­ting exis­ting coo­kies and de­ac­tivat­ing the sto­r­a­ge of coo­kies in the set­tings of your web brow­ser. Plea­se note that in this case you may not be able to use all the func­tions of our web­site to their full extent. You can also prevent the sto­r­a­ge of coo­kies by set­ting your web brow­ser to block coo­kies from the do­main "www.goo­glead­ser­vices.com" (https://adssettings.google.com). We would like to point out that this set­ting is de­le­ted when you de­le­te your coo­kies. You can also de­ac­tiva­te in­te­rest-re­la­ted ad­ver­ti­se­ments by cli­cking on the link optout.aboutads.info. We would like to point out that this set­ting will also be de­le­ted if you de­le­te your coo­kies.

Third par­ty in­for­ma­ti­on: Goog­le Ire­land Li­mi­ted, Goog­le Buil­ding Gor­don Hou­se, Bar­row St, Dub­lin 4, Ire­land.

LinkedIn Insight Tag

This web­site uses the Lin­ke­dIn In­sight Tag.

The pro­vi­der of this ser­vice is Lin­ke­dIn Ire­land Un­li­mi­ted Com­pa­ny, Wil­ton Pla­za, Wil­ton Place, Dub­lin 2, Ire­land. Data pro­ces­sing by Lin­ke­dIn In­sight Tag With the help of the Lin­ke­dIn In­sight Tag, we re­cei­ve in­for­ma­ti­on about vi­si­tors to our web­site. If a web­site vi­si­tor is re­gis­te­red with Lin­ke­dIn, we can, among other things, ana­ly­se the key pro­fes­sio­nal data (e.g. ca­re­er le­vel, com­pa­ny size, coun­try, lo­ca­ti­on, in­dus­try and job tit­le) of our web­site vi­si­tors and thus bet­ter tailor our site to the re­spec­tive tar­get groups. Fur­ther­mo­re, we can use Lin­ke­dIn In­sight Tags to mea­su­re whe­ther vi­si­tors to our web­sites make a purcha­se or take any other ac­tion (con­ver­si­on mea­su­re­ment). Con­ver­si­on mea­su­re­ment can also be done across de­vices (e.g. from PC to ta­blet). Lin­ke­dIn In­sight Tag also of­fers a re­tar­ge­ting func­tion that al­lows us to dis­play tar­ge­ted ad­ver­ti­sing to vi­si­tors to our web­site outs­ide of the web­site, whe­r­e­by, ac­cor­ding to Lin­ke­dIn, no iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on of the ad­ver­ti­sing ad­dres­see ta­kes place. Lin­ke­dIn its­elf also collects so-cal­led log files (URL, re­fer­rer URL, IP ad­dress, de­vice and brow­ser pro­per­ties and time of ac­cess). The IP ad­dres­ses are shor­te­n­ed or (if they are used to reach Lin­ke­dIn mem­bers across de­vices) has­hed (pseud­ony­mi­sed). The di­rect iden­ti­fiers of Lin­ke­dIn mem­bers are de­le­ted by Lin­ke­dIn af­ter se­ven days. The re­mai­ning pseud­ony­mi­sed data is then de­le­ted wi­t­hin 180 days. The data collec­ted by Lin­ke­dIn can­not be as­si­gned to spe­ci­fic in­di­vi­du­als by us as the web­site ope­ra­tor. Lin­ke­dIn will store the collec­ted per­so­nal data of web­site vi­si­tors on its ser­vers in the USA and use it in the con­text of its own ad­ver­ti­sing mea­su­res.

Facebook Pixel

This web­site uses the vi­si­tor ac­tion pi­xel from Face­book to mea­su­re con­ver­si­ons. The pro­vi­der of this ser­vice is Face­book Ire­land Li­mi­ted, 4 Grand Ca­nal Squa­re, Dub­lin 2, Ire­land. Howe­ver, ac­cor­ding to Face­book, the data collec­ted is also trans­fer­red to the USA and other third coun­tries. In this way, the be­ha­viour of page vi­si­tors can be tra­cked af­ter they have been re­di­rec­ted to the pro­vi­der's web­site by cli­cking on a Face­book ad. This al­lows the ef­fec­tiven­ess of the Face­book ads to be eva­lua­ted for sta­tis­ti­cal and mar­ket re­se­arch pur­po­ses and fu­ture ad­ver­ti­sing mea­su­res to be op­ti­mi­sed.
The data collec­ted is an­ony­mous for us as the ope­ra­tor of this web­site, we can­not draw any con­clu­si­ons about the iden­ti­ty of the users. Howe­ver, the data is stored and pro­ces­sed by Face­book so that a con­nec­tion to the re­spec­tive user pro­fi­le is pos­si­ble and Face­book can use the data for its own ad­ver­ti­sing pur­po­ses in ac­cor­dance with the Face­book data usa­ge po­li­cy. This enables Face­book to ser­ve ad­ver­ti­se­ments on Face­book pa­ges as well as outs­ide of Face­book. This use of the data can­not be in­flu­en­ced by us as site ope­ra­tor.

The use of Face­book Pi­xel is ba­sed on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in ef­fec­tive ad­ver­ti­sing mea­su­res in­clu­ding so­ci­al me­dia.
Ap­pro­pria­te con­sent has been re­quested via our coo­kie con­sent tool (e.g. con­sent to store coo­kies), the­re­fo­re pro­ces­sing is car­ri­ed out ex­clu­si­ve­ly on the ba­sis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; con­sent can be re­vo­ked at any time with ef­fect for the fu­ture.

Data trans­fer to the USA is ba­sed on the stan­dard contrac­tu­al clau­ses of the EU Com­mis­si­on.

Note on the con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on used: "Au­to­ma­tic ad­van­ced matching" by Face­book Pi­xel is de­ac­tiva­ted. To en­su­re the func­tio­na­li­ty of the tracking so­lu­ti­on we use, we use the so-cal­led first-par­ty so­lu­ti­on of Face­book Pi­xel. This trans­mits in­for­ma­ti­on to Face­book when you call up our page via the link to a cor­re­spon­ding ad­ver­ti­sing ban­ner from Face­book. The­re­fo­re, in the event of your con­sent to the use of Face­book Pi­xel, the data will also be sha­red with Face­book if your brow­ser has a third-par­ty fil­ter so­lu­ti­on. In this case, the data ex­ch­an­ge ta­kes place as if the­re were no third-par­ty fil­te­ring. 


6. News­let­ter

Newsletter data

If you would like to sub­scri­be to the news­let­ter of­fe­red on this web­site, we will need from you an e-mail ad­dress as well as in­for­ma­ti­on that al­low us to ve­ri­fy that you are the ow­ner of the e-mail ad­dress pro­vi­ded and con­sent to the re­ce­ipt of the news­let­ter. No fur­ther data shall be collec­ted or shall be collec­ted only on a vol­un­ta­ry ba­sis. We shall use such data only for the sen­ding of the re­quested in­for­ma­ti­on and shall not sha­re such data with any third par­ties.

The pro­ces­sing of the in­for­ma­ti­on en­t­e­red into the news­let­ter sub­scrip­ti­on form shall oc­cur ex­clu­si­ve­ly on the ba­sis of your con­sent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). You may re­vo­ke the con­sent you have gi­ven to the ar­chi­ving of data, the e-mail ad­dress and the use of this in­for­ma­ti­on for the sen­ding of the news­let­ter at any time, for in­stan­ce by cli­cking on the “Un­sub­scri­be” link in the news­let­ter. This shall be wi­thout pre­ju­di­ce to the la­w­ful­ness of any data pro­ces­sing tran­sac­tions that have ta­ken place to date.

The data de­po­si­ted with us for the pur­po­se of sub­scri­bing to the news­let­ter will be stored by us un­til you un­sub­scri­be from the news­let­ter or the news­let­ter ser­vice pro­vi­der and de­le­ted from the news­let­ter dis­tri­bu­ti­on list af­ter you un­sub­scri­be from the news­let­ter.

CleverReach

This web­site uses Cle­ver­Reach for the sen­ding of news­let­ters. The pro­vi­der is the Cle­ver­Reach GmbH & Co. KG, Müh­len­str. 43, 26180 Ras­te­de, Ger­ma­ny. Cle­ver­Reach is a ser­vice that can be used to or­ga­ni­ze and ana­ly­ze the sen­ding of news­let­ters. The data you have en­t­e­red for the pur­po­se of sub­scri­bing to our news­let­ter (e.g. e-mail ad­dress) are stored on ser­vers of Cle­ver­Reach in Ger­ma­ny or in Ire­land.

News­let­ters we send out via Cle­ver­Reach al­low us to ana­ly­ze the user pat­terns of our news­let­ter re­ci­pi­ents. Among other things, in con­junc­tion with this, it is pos­si­ble how many re­ci­pi­ents ac­tual­ly opened the news­let­ter e-mail and how of­ten which link in­si­de the news­let­ter has been cli­cked. With the as­sis­tan­ce of a tool cal­led Con­ver­si­on Tracking, we can also de­ter­mi­ne whe­ther an ac­tion that has been pre­de­fi­ned in the news­let­ter ac­tual­ly oc­cur­red af­ter the link was cli­cked (e.g. purcha­se of a pro­duct on this web­site). For more in­for­ma­ti­on on the data ana­ly­sis ser­vices by Cle­ver­Reach news­let­ters, plea­se go to: https://www.cleverreach.com/en/features/reporting-tracking/.

8. Cust­om Ser­vices

Job Applications

We of­fer web­site vi­si­tors the op­por­tu­ni­ty to sub­mit job ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons to us (e.g. via e-mail or by sub­mit­ting the on­line job ap­p­li­ca­ti­on form). Be­low, we will brief you on the scope, pur­po­se and use of the per­so­nal data collec­ted from you in con­junc­tion with the ap­p­li­ca­ti­on pro­cess. We as­su­re you that the collec­tion, pro­ces­sing and use of your data will oc­cur in com­p­li­an­ce with the ap­p­lica­ble data pri­va­cy rights and all other sta­tu­to­ry pro­vi­si­ons and that your data will al­ways be trea­ted as strict­ly con­fi­den­ti­al.

Scope and purpose of the collection of data

If you sub­mit a job ap­p­li­ca­ti­on to us, we will pro­cess any af­fi­lia­ted per­so­nal data (e.g. con­tact and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons data, ap­p­li­ca­ti­on do­cu­ments, no­tes ta­ken du­ring job in­ter­views, etc.), if they are re­qui­red to make a de­ci­si­on con­cerning the es­ta­blish­ment or an em­ploy­ment re­la­ti­ons­hip. The le­gal grounds for the afo­re­men­tio­ned are § 26 New GDPR ac­cor­ding to Ger­man Law (Ne­go­tia­ti­on of an Em­ploy­ment Re­la­ti­ons­hip), Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR (Ge­ne­ral Contract Ne­go­tia­ti­ons) and – pro­vi­ded you have gi­ven us your con­sent – Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. You may re­vo­ke any con­sent gi­ven at any time. Wi­t­hin our com­pa­ny, your per­so­nal data will only be sha­red with in­di­vi­du­als who are in­vol­ved in the pro­ces­sing of your job ap­p­li­ca­ti­on.

If your job ap­p­li­ca­ti­on should re­sult in your re­cruit­ment, the data you have sub­mit­ted will be ar­chi­ved on the grounds of § 26 New GDPR and Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR for the pur­po­se of im­ple­men­ting the em­ploy­ment re­la­ti­ons­hip in our data pro­ces­sing sys­tem.

Data Archiving Period

If we are un­able to make you a job of­fer or you re­ject a job of­fer or wi­th­draw your ap­p­li­ca­ti­on, we re­ser­ve the right to re­tain the data you have sub­mit­ted on the ba­sis of our le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) for up to 6 months from the end of the ap­p­li­ca­ti­on pro­ce­du­re (re­jec­tion or wi­th­dra­wal of the ap­p­li­ca­ti­on).
Af­ter­wards the data will be de­le­ted, and the phy­si­cal ap­p­li­ca­ti­on do­cu­ments will be de­s­troy­ed. The sto­r­a­ge ser­ves in par­ti­cu­lar as evi­dence in the event of a le­gal dis­pu­te. If it is evi­dent that the data will be re­qui­red af­ter the ex­pi­ry of the 6-month pe­ri­od (e.g. due to an im­pen­ding or pen­ding le­gal dis­pu­te), de­le­ti­on will only take place when the pur­po­se for fur­ther sto­r­a­ge no lon­ger ap­p­lies.

Lon­ger sto­r­a­ge may also take place if you have gi­ven your agree­ment (Ar­ti­cle 6 (1) (a) GDPR) or if sta­tu­to­ry data re­ten­ti­on re­qui­re­ments pre­clu­de the de­le­ti­on.

If tra­vel ex­pen­ses are reim­bur­sed, the tran­sac­tion will be re­cor­ded by our ac­coun­ting de­part­ment and stored fur­ther wi­t­hin the le­gal re­ten­ti­on pe­ri­od.

Admission to the applicant pool

If we do not make you a job of­fer, you may be able to join our ap­p­li­cant pool. In case of ad­mis­si­on, all do­cu­ments and in­for­ma­ti­on from the ap­p­li­ca­ti­on will be trans­fer­red to the ap­p­li­cant pool in or­der to con­tact you in case of sui­ta­ble va­can­cies.

Ad­mis­si­on to the ap­p­li­cant pool is ba­sed ex­clu­si­ve­ly on your ex­press agree­ment (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). The sub­mis­si­on agree­ment is vol­un­ta­ry and has no re­la­ti­on to the on­go­ing ap­p­li­ca­ti­on pro­ce­du­re. The af­fec­ted per­son can re­vo­ke his agree­ment at any time. In this case, the data from the ap­p­li­cant pool will be ir­re­vo­c­a­b­ly de­le­ted, pro­vi­ded the­re are no le­gal re­a­sons for sto­r­a­ge.

The data from the ap­p­li­cant pool will be ir­re­vo­c­a­b­ly de­le­ted no la­ter than 60 months af­ter con­sent has been gran­ted.

Processing of data on behalf of third parties

Fur­ther­mo­re, EXXETA oc­ca­sio­nal­ly collects and pro­ces­ses per­so­nal data on be­half of third par­ties wi­t­hin the scope of per­son­nel pla­ce­ment. In this case, EXXETA will trans­fer your per­so­nal data to the com­mis­sio­ning third par­ty wi­t­hin the scope of the re­spec­tive pur­po­se. If EXXETA acts as a pro­ces­sor for third par­ties, this is done on the ba­sis of an agree­ment bet­ween EXXETA and the per­son re­s­pon­si­ble for data pro­ces­sing.
You as­su­re that the in­for­ma­ti­on you pro­vi­de is true. You are also awa­re that fal­se in­for­ma­ti­on may lead to the ter­mi­na­ti­on of a pos­si­ble em­ploy­ment re­la­ti­ons­hip.


9. Our so­ci­al me­dia ap­pearan­ces

Data processing through social networks

We main­tain pu­bli­cly avail­able pro­files in so­ci­al net­works. The in­di­vi­du­al so­ci­al net­works we use can be found be­low.

So­ci­al net­works such as Face­book, Goog­le+ etc. can ge­ne­ral­ly ana­ly­ze your user be­ha­vi­or com­pre­hen­si­ve­ly if you vi­sit their web­site or a web­site with in­te­gra­ted so­ci­al me­dia con­tent (e.g. like but­tons or ban­ner ads). When you vi­sit our so­ci­al me­dia pa­ges, nu­merous data pro­tec­tion-re­le­vant pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons are trig­ge­red. In de­tail:

If you are log­ged in to your so­ci­al me­dia ac­count and vi­sit our so­ci­al me­dia page, the ope­ra­tor of the so­ci­al me­dia por­tal can as­sign this vi­sit to your user ac­count. Un­der cer­tain cir­cum­stan­ces, your per­so­nal data may also be re­cor­ded if you are not log­ged in or do not have an ac­count with the re­spec­tive so­ci­al me­dia por­tal. In this case, this data is collec­ted, for ex­amp­le, via coo­kies stored on your de­vice or by re­cor­ding your IP ad­dress.

Using the data collec­ted in this way, the ope­ra­tors of the so­ci­al me­dia por­tals can crea­te user pro­files in which their pre­fe­ren­ces and in­te­rests are stored. This way you can see in­te­rest-ba­sed ad­ver­ti­sing in­si­de and outs­ide of your so­ci­al me­dia pre­sence. If you have an ac­count with the so­ci­al net­work, in­te­rest-ba­sed ad­ver­ti­sing can be dis­play­ed on any de­vice you are log­ged in to or have log­ged in to.

Plea­se also note that we can­not re­tra­ce all pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons on the so­ci­al me­dia por­tals. De­pen­ding on the pro­vi­der, ad­di­tio­nal pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons may the­re­fo­re be car­ri­ed out by the ope­ra­tors of the so­ci­al me­dia por­tals. De­tails can be found in the terms of use and pri­va­cy po­li­cy of the re­spec­tive so­ci­al me­dia por­tals.

Legal basis

Our so­ci­al me­dia ap­pearan­ces should en­su­re the wi­dest pos­si­ble pre­sence on the In­ter­net. This is a le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest wi­t­hin the mea­ning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The ana­ly­sis pro­ces­ses in­itia­ted by the so­ci­al net­works may be ba­sed on di­ver­gent le­gal ba­ses to be spe­ci­fied by the ope­ra­tors of the so­ci­al net­works (e.g. con­sent wi­t­hin the mea­ning of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR).

Responsibility and assertion of rights

If you vi­sit one of our so­ci­al me­dia sites (e.g., Face­book), we, to­ge­ther with the ope­ra­tor of the so­ci­al me­dia plat­form, are re­s­pon­si­ble for the data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons trig­ge­red du­ring this vi­sit. You can in prin­ciple pro­tect your rights (in­for­ma­ti­on, cor­rec­tion, de­le­ti­on, li­mi­ta­ti­on of pro­ces­sing, data por­ta­bi­li­ty and com­plaint) vis-à-vis us as well as vis-à-vis the ope­ra­tor of the re­spec­tive so­ci­al me­dia por­tal (e.g. Face­book).

Plea­se note that de­s­pi­te the sha­red re­s­pon­si­bi­li­ty with the so­ci­al me­dia por­tal ope­ra­tors, we do not have full in­flu­ence on the data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons of the so­ci­al me­dia por­tals. Our op­ti­ons are de­ter­mi­ned by the com­pa­ny po­li­cy of the re­spec­tive pro­vi­der.

Storage time

The data collec­ted di­rect­ly from us via the so­ci­al me­dia pre­sence will be de­le­ted from our sys­tems as soon as the pur­po­se for their sto­r­a­ge lap­ses, you ask us to de­le­te it, you re­vo­ke your con­sent to the sto­r­a­ge or the pur­po­se for the data sto­r­a­ge lap­ses. Stored coo­kies re­main on your de­vice un­til you de­le­te them. Man­da­to­ry sta­tu­to­ry pro­vi­si­ons - in par­ti­cu­lar, re­ten­ti­on pe­ri­ods - re­main un­af­fec­ted.

We have no con­trol over the sto­r­a­ge du­ra­ti­on of your data that are stored by the so­ci­al net­work ope­ra­tors for their own pur­po­ses. For de­tails, plea­se con­tact the so­ci­al net­work ope­ra­tors di­rect­ly (e.g. in their pri­va­cy po­li­cy, see be­low).
