This data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of this website about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator in accordance with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory provisions. Please remember that data transmission on the Internet can be subject to security gaps. A complete protection against access by third parties is not realizable.
The website operator or page provider collects data about accesses to the site and stores it as "server log files". The following data is logged in this way:
- visited website
- time at the time of access
- amount of sent data in bytes
- source/reference from which you reached the page
- used Browser
- operating system used
- used IP address
The data collected is only used for statistical analysis and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to check the server log files subsequently if concrete indications of illegal use are found.
Common browsers offer the setting option not to allow cookies. Note: It cannot be guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if you make the appropriate settings.
Handling of personal data
The website operator collects, uses and passes on your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.
Personal data is defined as all information that serves to determine your person and which can be traced back to you – such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.
Handling of contact data
If you contact the website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be stored for a period of six months so that they can be used to process and answer your inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
This website uses the "Google Analytics" service, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to analyze the use of the website by users. The service uses "cookies" – text files that are stored on your end device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
IP anonymization is used on this website. The IP address of users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area. Due to this shortening, the personal reference of your IP address is not necessary. Within the framework of the agreement on commissioned data, which the website operators have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with Internet use. You have the option of preventing the cookie from being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. If your browser does not allow cookies, there is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions.
Furthermore, you can use a browser plugin to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link will take you to the appropriate plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
Alternatively, by clicking on this link (IMPORTANT! Insert opt-out link) you prevent Google Analytics from collecting data about you within this website. By clicking on the link above, you download an "opt-out cookie". Your browser must therefore allow the storage of cookies for this purpose. If you delete your cookies regularly, you will need to click on the link again each time you visit this website. Here you will find further information on the use of data by Google Inc.: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de
Simultaneously with the use of Google Analytics, our website uses the service Leadfeeder, which is operated by Liidio Oy / Leadfeeder, Mikonkatu 17 C, 00100 Helsinki, Finland. Leadfeeder accesses the list of website visitors' IP addresses provided by Google Analytics in the analysis and links the list of IP addresses to information about the companies that can be found on the Internet under these IP addresses. Due to the shortening of the IP addresses of the website visitors, which is already carried out when using Google Analytics, a direct reference to a person is not established. A reference to a person may be presumed when reviewing the linked company information. For more information on Leadfeeder and the data collected, please see: www.leadfeeder.com/privacy/, Information on Leadfeeder and compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation: help.leadfeeder.com/faqs-and-troubleshooting/is-leadfeeder-ready-for-gdpr
If you register in the "Information" module, we will send you information on current topics and events in the field of digitalization and Big Data at irregular intervals. To receive the information, you must provide a valid e-mail address. This will only be used for sending the information and will not be passed on to third parties. You can cancel the sending of information at any time.
Handling of applicant data
