1. An over­view of da­ta pro­tec­tion

Ge­ne­ral in­for­ma­ti­on

The fol­lo­wing in­for­ma­ti­on will pro­vi­de you with an ea­sy to na­vi­ga­te over­view of what will hap­pen with your per­so­nal da­ta when you vi­sit this web­site. The term „per­so­nal da­ta“ com­pri­ses all da­ta that can be used to per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fy you. For de­tail­ed in­for­ma­ti­on about the sub­ject mat­ter of da­ta pro­tec­tion, plea­se con­sult our Da­ta Pro­tec­tion De­cla­ra­ti­on, which we have in­clu­ded be­neath this co­py.

 

Da­ta re­cording on this web­site

Who is the re­spon­si­ble par­ty for the re­cording of da­ta on this web­site (i.e. the „con­trol­ler“)?

The da­ta on this web­site is pro­ces­sed by the ope­ra­tor of the web­site, who­se con­ta­ct in­for­ma­ti­on is availa­ble un­der sec­tion „In­for­ma­ti­on Re­qui­red by Law“ on this web­site.

 

How do we re­cord your da­ta?

We collect your da­ta as a re­sult of your sharing of your da­ta with us. This may, for in­s­tan­ce be in­for­ma­ti­on you en­ter in­to our con­ta­ct form.

 

Our IT sys­tems au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly re­cord other da­ta when you vi­sit our web­site. This da­ta com­pri­ses pri­ma­ri­ly tech­ni­cal in­for­ma­ti­on (e.g. web brow­ser, ope­ra­ting sys­tem or time the site was ac­ces­sed). This in­for­ma­ti­on is re­cor­ded au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly when you ac­cess this web­site.

 

What are the pur­po­ses we use your da­ta for?

A por­ti­on of the in­for­ma­ti­on is ge­ne­ra­ted to gua­ran­tee the er­ror free pro­vi­si­on of the web­site. Other da­ta may be used to ana­ly­se your user pat­terns.

 

What rights do you have as far as your in­for­ma­ti­on is con­cer­ned?

You have the right to re­cei­ve in­for­ma­ti­on about the source, re­ci­pi­ents and pur­po­ses of your ar­chi­ved per­so­nal da­ta at any time wit­hout ha­ving to pay a fee for such dis­clo­sures. You al­so have the right to de­mand that your da­ta are rec­ti­fied or era­di­ca­ted. Plea­se do not hesi­ta­te to con­ta­ct us at any time un­der the ad­dress dis­c­lo­sed in sec­tion „In­for­ma­ti­on Re­qui­red by Law“ on this web­site if you have ques­ti­ons about this or any other da­ta pro­tec­tion re­la­ted is­su­es. You al­so have the right to log a com­plaint with the com­pe­tent su­per­vi­sing agen­cy.

 

Mo­reo­ver, un­der cer­tain cir­cums­tan­ces, you have the right to de­mand the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal da­ta. For de­tails, plea­se con­sult the Da­ta Pro­tec­tion De­cla­ra­ti­on un­der sec­tion „Right to Restric­tion of Da­ta Pro­ces­sing.“

 

Ana­ly­sis tools and tools pro­vi­ded by third par­ties

The­re is a pos­si­bi­li­ty that your brow­sing pat­terns will be sta­ti­s­ti­cal­ly ana­ly­sed when your vi­sit this web­site. Such ana­ly­ses are per­for­med pri­ma­ri­ly with coo­kies and with what we re­fer to as ana­ly­sis pro­gram­mes. As a ru­le, the ana­ly­ses of your brow­sing pat­terns are con­duc­ted an­ony­mously; i.e. the brow­sing pat­terns can­not be tra­ced back to you.

 

You have the op­ti­on to ob­ject to such ana­ly­ses or you can pre­vent their per­for­mance by not using cer­tain tools. For de­tail­ed in­for­ma­ti­on about the tools and about your op­ti­ons to ob­ject, plea­se con­sult our Da­ta Pro­tec­tion De­cla­ra­ti­on be­low.

 

2. Hos­ting

Ex­ter­nal Hos­ting

This web­site is hosted by an ex­ter­nal ser­vice pro­vi­der (host). Per­so­nal da­ta collec­ted on this web­site are stored on the ser­vers of the host. The­se may in­clu­de, but are not li­mi­ted to, IP ad­dres­ses, con­ta­ct re­quests, me­ta­da­ta and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons, con­tract in­for­ma­ti­on, con­ta­ct in­for­ma­ti­on, na­mes, web pa­ge ac­cess, and other da­ta ge­ne­ra­ted through a web site.

 

The host is used for the pur­po­se of ful­fil­ling the con­tract with our po­ten­ti­al and exis­ting custo­mers (Art. 6 pa­ra. 1 lit. b DS­G­VO) and in the in­te­rest of se­cu­re, fast and ef­fici­ent pro­vi­si­on of our on­line ser­vices by a pro­fes­sio­nal pro­vi­der (Art. 6 pa­ra. 1 lit. f DS­G­VO).

 

Our host will on­ly pro­cess your da­ta to the ex­tent ne­cess­a­ry to ful­fil its per­for­mance ob­li­ga­ti­ons and to fol­low our in­st­ruc­tions with re­spect to such da­ta.

 

Exe­cu­ti­on of a con­tract da­ta pro­ces­sing agree­ment

In or­der to gua­ran­tee pro­ces­sing in com­pli­an­ce with da­ta pro­tec­tion re­gu­la­ti­ons, we have con­clu­ded an or­der pro­ces­sing con­tract with our host.

 

3. Ge­ne­ral in­for­ma­ti­on and man­da­to­ry in­for­ma­ti­on

Da­ta pro­tec­ti­on

The ope­ra­tors of this web­site and its pa­ges ta­ke the pro­tec­tion of your per­so­nal da­ta ve­ry se­rious­ly. Hence, we hand­le your per­so­nal da­ta as con­fi­den­ti­al in­for­ma­ti­on and in com­pli­an­ce with the sta­tu­to­ry da­ta pro­tec­tion re­gu­la­ti­ons and this Da­ta Pro­tec­tion De­cla­ra­ti­on.

 

Whe­ne­ver you use this web­site, a va­rie­ty of per­so­nal in­for­ma­ti­on will be collec­ted. Per­so­nal da­ta com­pri­ses da­ta that can be used to per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fy you. This Da­ta Pro­tec­tion De­cla­ra­ti­on ex­plains which da­ta we collect as well as the pur­po­ses we use this da­ta for. It al­so ex­plains how, and for which pur­po­se the in­for­ma­ti­on is collec­ted.

 

We here­with ad­vi­se you that the trans­mis­si­on of da­ta via the In­ter­net (i.e. through e-mail com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons) may be pro­ne to se­cu­ri­ty gaps. It is not pos­si­ble to com­ple­te­ly pro­tect da­ta against third par­ty ac­cess.

 

In­for­ma­ti­on about the re­spon­si­ble par­ty (re­fer­red to as the „con­trol­ler“ in the GD­PR)

Re­vo­ca­ti­on of your con­sent to the pro­ces­sing of da­ta

A wi­de ran­ge of da­ta pro­ces­sing tran­sac­tions are pos­si­ble on­ly sub­ject to your ex­press con­sent. You can al­so re­vo­ke at any time any con­sent you have al­re­ady gi­ven us.

This shall be wit­hout pre­ju­di­ce to the la­w­ful­ness of any da­ta collec­tion that oc­cur­red pri­or to your re­vo­ca­ti­on.

 

Right to ob­ject to the collec­tion of da­ta in spe­cial ca­ses; right to ob­ject to di­rect ad­ver­ti­sing (Art. 21 GD­PR)

IN THE EVENT THAT DA­TA ARE PRO­CES­SED ON THE BA­SIS OF ART. 6 SECT. 1 LIT. E OR F GD­PR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OB­JECT TO THE PRO­CES­SING OF YOUR PER­SO­NAL DA­TA BA­SED ON GROUNDS ARI­SING FROM YOUR UNI­QUE SI­TUA­TI­ON. THIS AL­SO AP­PLIES TO ANY PRO­FI­LING BA­SED ON THE­SE PRO­VI­SI­ONS. TO DE­TER­MI­NE THE LE­GAL BA­SIS, ON WHICH ANY PRO­CES­SING OF DA­TA IS BA­SED, PLEA­SE CON­SULT THIS DA­TA PRO­TEC­TION DE­CLA­RA­TI­ON. IF YOU LOG AN OB­JEC­TION, WE WILL NO LON­GER PRO­CESS YOUR AF­FEC­TED PER­SO­NAL DA­TA, UN­LESS WE ARE IN A PO­SI­TI­ON TO PRE­SENT COM­PEL­LING PRO­TEC­TION WORT­HY GROUNDS FOR THE PRO­CES­SING OF YOUR DA­TA, THAT OUT­WEIGH YOUR IN­TE­RESTS, RIGHTS AND FREE­DOMS OR IF THE PUR­PO­SE OF THE PRO­CES­SING IS THE CLAI­MING, EX­ER­CIS­ING OR DE­FENCE OF LE­GAL EN­TIT­LE­MENTS (OB­JEC­TION PUR­SU­ANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 1 GD­PR).

 

IF YOUR PER­SO­NAL DA­TA IS BE­ING PRO­CES­SED IN OR­DER TO EN­GA­GE IN DI­RECT AD­VER­TI­SING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OB­JECT TO THE PRO­CES­SING OF YOUR AF­FEC­TED PER­SO­NAL DA­TA FOR THE PUR­PO­SES OF SUCH AD­VER­TI­SING. THIS AL­SO AP­PLIES TO PRO­FI­LING TO THE EX­TENT THAT IT IS AF­FI­LIA­TED WITH SUCH DI­RECT AD­VER­TI­SING. IF YOU OB­JECT, YOUR PER­SO­NAL DA­TA WILL SUB­SE­QUENT­LY NO LON­GER BE USED FOR DI­RECT AD­VER­TI­SING PUR­PO­SES (OB­JEC­TION PUR­SU­ANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 2 GD­PR).

 

Right to log a com­plaint with the com­pe­tent su­per­vi­so­ry agen­cy

In the event of vio­la­ti­ons of the GD­PR, da­ta sub­jects are en­tit­led to log a com­plaint with a su­per­vi­so­ry agen­cy, in par­ti­cu­lar in the mem­ber sta­te whe­re they usual­ly main­tain their do­mic­i­le, pla­ce of work or at the pla­ce whe­re the al­le­ged vio­la­ti­on oc­cur­red. The right to log a com­plaint is in ef­fect re­gard­less of any other ad­mi­nis­tra­ti­ve or court pro­cee­dings availa­ble as le­gal re­cour­ses.

 

Right to da­ta por­ta­bi­li­ty

You have the right to de­mand that we hand over any da­ta we au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly pro­cess on the ba­sis of your con­sent or in or­der to ful­fil a con­tract be han­ded over to you or a third par­ty in a com­mon­ly used, ma­chi­ne re­ada­ble for­mat. If you should de­mand the di­rect trans­fer of the da­ta to ano­ther con­trol­ler, this will be do­ne on­ly if it is tech­ni­cal­ly fea­si­ble.

 

SSL and/or TLS en­cryp­ti­on

For se­cu­ri­ty rea­sons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­si­on of con­fi­den­ti­al con­tent, such as purcha­se or­ders or in­qui­ries you sub­mit to us as the web­site ope­ra­tor, this web­site uses eit­her an SSL or a TLS en­cryp­ti­on pro­gram­me. You can re­cogni­se an en­cryp­ted con­nec­tion by che­cking whe­ther the ad­dress li­ne of the brow­ser swit­ches from „http://“ to „https://“ and al­so by the ap­pearan­ce of the lock icon in the brow­ser li­ne.

 

If the SSL or TLS en­cryp­ti­on is ac­ti­va­ted, da­ta you trans­mit to us can­not be re­ad by third par­ties.

 

In­for­ma­ti­on about, rec­ti­fi­ca­ti­on and era­di­ca­ti­on of da­ta

Within the scope of the ap­pli­ca­ble sta­tu­to­ry pro­vi­si­ons, you have the right to at any time de­mand in­for­ma­ti­on about your ar­chi­ved per­so­nal da­ta, their source and re­ci­pi­ents as well as the pur­po­se of the pro­ces­sing of your da­ta. You may al­so have a right to have your da­ta rec­ti­fied or era­di­ca­ted. If you have ques­ti­ons about this sub­ject mat­ter or any other ques­ti­ons about per­so­nal da­ta, plea­se do not hesi­ta­te to con­ta­ct us at any time at the ad­dress pro­vi­ded in sec­tion „In­for­ma­ti­on Re­qui­red by Law.“

 

Right to de­mand pro­ces­sing restric­tions

You have the right to de­mand the im­po­si­ti­on of restric­tions as far as the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal da­ta is con­cer­ned. 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.

 

If you have restric­ted the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal da­ta, the­se da­ta – with the ex­cep­ti­on of their ar­chi­ving – may be pro­ces­sed on­ly sub­ject to your con­sent or to claim, ex­er­cise or de­fend le­gal en­tit­le­ments or to pro­tect the rights of other na­tu­ral per­sons or le­gal en­ti­ties or for im­por­tant pu­blic in­te­rest rea­sons ci­ted by the Eu­rope­an Uni­on or a mem­ber sta­te of the EU.

4. Re­cording of da­ta on this web­site

Coo­kies

In so­me in­s­tan­ces, our web­site and its pa­ges use so-cal­led coo­kies. Coo­kies do not cau­se any da­ma­ge to your com­pu­ter and do not con­tain vi­ru­ses. The pur­po­se of coo­kies is to make our web­site mo­re user fri­end­ly, ef­fec­ti­ve and mo­re se­cu­re. Coo­kies are small text files that are pla­ced on your com­pu­ter and stored by your brow­ser.

 

Most of the coo­kies we use are so-cal­led „ses­si­on coo­kies.“ They are au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly de­le­ted af­ter your lea­ve our site. Other coo­kies will re­main ar­chi­ved on your de­vice un­til you de­le­te them. The­se coo­kies en­able us to re­cogni­se your brow­ser the next time you vi­sit our web­site.

 

You can ad­just the set­tings of your brow­ser to make su­re that you are no­ti­fied eve­ry time coo­kies are pla­ced and to en­able you to ac­cept coo­kies on­ly in spe­ci­fic ca­ses or to ex­clu­de the ac­cep­tan­ce of coo­kies for spe­ci­fic si­tua­ti­ons or in ge­ne­ral and to ac­ti­va­te the au­to­ma­tic de­le­ti­on of coo­kies when you clo­se your brow­ser. If you de­ac­ti­va­te coo­kies, the func­tions of this web­site may be li­mi­ted.

 

Coo­kies that are re­qui­red for the per­for­mance of the elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons tran­sac­tion or to pro­vi­de cer­tain func­tions you want to use (e.g. the shop­ping cart func­tion), are stored on the ba­sis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GD­PR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in sto­ring coo­kies to en­su­re the tech­ni­cal­ly er­ror free and op­ti­mi­sed pro­vi­si­on of the ope­ra­tor’s ser­vices. 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.

 

If other coo­kies (e.g. coo­kies for the ana­ly­sis of your brow­sing pat­terns) should be stored, they are ad­dres­sed se­pa­ra­te­ly in this Da­ta Pro­tec­tion De­cla­ra­ti­on.

 

Coo­kie Con­sent with User­cen­trics

Our web­site uses the User­cen­trics coo­kie con­sent tech­no­lo­gy to ob­tain your con­sent to the sto­ra­ge of cer­tain coo­kies on your de­vice and da­ta pro­tec­tion le­gis­la­ti­on com­pli­ant do­cu­men­ta­ti­on of the for­mer. The par­ty of­fe­ring this tech­no­lo­gy is User­cen­trics GmbH, Ro­sen­tal 4, 80331 Mün­chen, Ger­many, web­site:

Whe­ne­ver you vi­sit our web­site, the fol­lo­wing per­so­nal da­ta will be trans­fer­red to User­cen­trics:

  • Your de­cla­ra­ti­on(s) of con­sent or your re­vo­ca­ti­on of your de­cla­ra­ti­on(s) of con­sent
  • Your IP ad­dress
  • In­for­ma­ti­on about your brow­ser
  • In­for­ma­ti­on about your de­vice
  • The date and time you vi­si­ted our web­site

 

Mo­reo­ver, User­cen­trics shall store a coo­kie in your brow­ser to be ab­le to al­lo­ca­te your de­cla­ra­ti­on(s) of con­sent or any re­vo­ca­ti­ons of the for­mer. The da­ta that are re­cor­ded in this man­ner shall be stored un­til you ask us to era­di­ca­te them, de­le­te the User­cen­trics coo­kie or un­til the pur­po­se for ar­chi­ving the da­ta no lon­ger exists. 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 such coo­kies is Art. 6 Sect. 1 Sen­tence 1 lit. c GD­PR.

 

Con­tract da­ta pro­ces­sing agree­ment

Our com­pany has exe­cu­ted a Con­tract Da­ta Pro­ces­sing Agree­ment with User­cen­trics. This is an Agree­ment man­da­ted by da­ta pri­va­cy pro­tec­tion le­gis­la­ti­on that war­rants that User­cen­trics pro­ces­ses all per­so­nal da­ta  of our web­site vi­si­tors ex­clu­si­ve­ly in com­pli­an­ce with our in­st­ruc­tions and in com­pli­an­ce with the GD­PR.

 

Ser­ver log files

The pro­vi­der of this web­site and its pa­ges au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly collects and stores in­for­ma­ti­on in so-cal­led ser­ver log files, which your brow­ser com­mu­ni­ca­tes to us au­to­ma­ti­cal­ly. The in­for­ma­ti­on com­pri­ses:

  • The ty­pe and ver­si­on of brow­ser used
  • The used ope­ra­ting sys­tem
  • Re­fer­rer URL
  • The host­na­me of the ac­ces­sing com­pu­ter
  • The time of the ser­ver in­quiry
  • The IP ad­dress

 

This da­ta is not mer­ged with other da­ta sources.

 

This da­ta is re­cor­ded on the ba­sis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GD­PR. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in the tech­ni­cal­ly er­ror free de­pic­tion and the op­ti­mi­za­ti­on of the ope­ra­tor’s web­site. In or­der to achie­ve this, ser­ver log files must be re­cor­ded.

 

Con­ta­ct form

If you sub­mit in­qui­ries to us via our con­ta­ct form, the in­for­ma­ti­on pro­vi­ded in the con­ta­ct form as well as any con­ta­ct in­for­ma­ti­on pro­vi­ded ther­ein will be stored by us in or­der to hand­le your in­quiry and in the event that we have fur­ther ques­ti­ons. We will not share this in­for­ma­ti­on wit­hout your con­sent.

 

The pro­ces­sing of the­se da­ta is ba­sed on Art. 6 pa­ra. 1 lit. b GD­PR, if your re­quest is re­la­ted to the exe­cu­ti­on of a con­tract or if it is ne­cess­a­ry to car­ry out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res. In all other ca­ses the pro­ces­sing is ba­sed on our le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in the ef­fec­ti­ve pro­ces­sing of the re­quests ad­dres­sed to us (Art. 6 Pa­ra. 1 lit. f DS­G­VO) or on your agree­ment (Art. 6 Pa­ra. 1 lit. a DS­G­VO) if this has be­en re­quested.

 

The in­for­ma­ti­on you have en­te­red in­to the con­ta­ct form shall re­main with us un­til you ask us to era­di­ca­te the da­ta, re­vo­ke your con­sent to the ar­chi­ving of da­ta or if the pur­po­se for which the in­for­ma­ti­on is be­ing ar­chi­ved no lon­ger exists (e.g. af­ter we have con­clu­ded our re­spon­se to your in­quiry). This shall be wit­hout pre­ju­di­ce to any man­da­to­ry le­gal pro­vi­si­ons – in par­ti­cu­lar re­ten­ti­on pe­ri­ods.

 

Re­quest by e-mail, te­le­pho­ne or fax

If you con­ta­ct us by e-mail, te­le­pho­ne or fax, your re­quest, in­clu­ding all re­sul­ting per­so­nal da­ta (na­me, re­quest) will be stored and pro­ces­sed by us for the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing your re­quest. We do not pass the­se da­ta on wit­hout your con­sent.

 

The pro­ces­sing of the­se da­ta is ba­sed on Art. 6 pa­ra. 1 lit. b GD­PR, if your re­quest is re­la­ted to the exe­cu­ti­on of a con­tract or if it is ne­cess­a­ry to car­ry out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res. In all other ca­ses, the pro­ces­sing is ba­sed on your con­sent (Ar­ti­cle 6 (1) a GD­PR) and/or on our le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rests (Ar­ti­cle 6 (1) (f) GD­PR), sin­ce we have a le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest in the ef­fec­ti­ve pro­ces­sing of re­quests ad­dres­sed to us.

 

The da­ta sent by you to us via con­ta­ct re­quests re­main with us un­til you re­quest us to de­le­te, re­vo­ke your con­sent to the sto­ra­ge or the pur­po­se for the da­ta sto­ra­ge lap­ses (e.g. af­ter com­ple­ti­on of your re­quest). Man­da­to­ry sta­tu­to­ry pro­vi­si­ons - in par­ti­cu­lar sta­tu­to­ry re­ten­ti­on pe­ri­ods - re­main un­af­fec­ted.

 

5. Plug-ins and Tools

You­Tube with ex­pan­ded da­ta pro­tec­tion in­te­gra­ti­on

Our web­site em­beds vi­de­os of the web­site You­Tube. The web­site ope­ra­tor is Goog­le Ire­land Li­mi­ted („Goog­le“), Gor­don Hou­se, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ire­land.

 

We use You­Tube in the ex­pan­ded da­ta pro­tec­tion mo­de. Ac­cording to You­Tube, this mo­de en­su­res that You­Tube does not store any in­for­ma­ti­on about vi­si­tors to this web­site be­fo­re they watch the vi­deo. Ne­verthe­less, this does not ne­ces­sa­ri­ly me­an that the sharing of da­ta with You­Tube part­ners can be ru­led out as a re­sult of the ex­pan­ded da­ta pro­tec­tion mo­de. For in­s­tan­ce, re­gard­less of whe­ther you are wat­ching a vi­deo, You­Tube will al­ways es­ta­blish a con­nec­tion with the Goog­le Dou­ble­Click net­work.

 

As so­on as you start to play a You­Tube vi­deo on this web­site, a con­nec­tion to You­Tube’s ser­vers will be es­ta­blis­hed. As a re­sult, the You­Tube ser­ver will be no­ti­fied, which of our pa­ges you have vi­si­ted. If you are log­ged in­to your You­Tube ac­count while you vi­sit our site, you en­able You­Tube to di­rect­ly al­lo­ca­te your brow­sing pat­terns to your per­so­nal pro­fi­le. You have the op­ti­on to pre­vent this by log­ging out of your You­Tube ac­count.

 

Fur­ther­mo­re, af­ter you have star­ted to play a vi­deo, You­Tube will be ab­le to pla­ce va­rious coo­kies on your de­vice. With the as­sis­tan­ce of the­se coo­kies, You­Tube will be ab­le to ob­tain in­for­ma­ti­on about our web­site's vi­si­tors. Among other things, this in­for­ma­ti­on will be used to ge­ne­ra­te vi­deo sta­ti­s­tics with the aim of im­pro­ving the user fri­end­li­ness of the site and to pre­vent at­tempts to com­mit fraud. The­se coo­kies will stay on your de­vice un­til you de­le­te them.

 

Un­der cer­tain cir­cums­tan­ces, ad­di­tio­nal da­ta pro­ces­sing tran­sac­tions may be trig­ge­red af­ter you have star­ted to play a You­Tube vi­deo, which are beyond our con­t­rol.

 

The use of You­Tube is ba­sed on our in­te­rest in pre­sen­ting our on­line con­tent in an ap­pea­ling man­ner.

 

Pur­su­ant to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GD­PR, this is a le­gi­ti­ma­te in­te­rest. 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.

6. Custom Ser­vices

Job Ap­pli­ca­ti­ons

We of­fer web­site vi­si­tors the op­por­tu­ni­ty to sub­mit job ap­pli­ca­ti­ons to us (e.g. via e-mail, via pos­tal ser­vices on 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 DS­G­VO) 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.

 

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 two ye­ars af­ter con­sent has be­en gran­ted.
