Disclosure | Webhosting | Security

 

Data Disclosure to Third Parties

 

Data will not be disclosed to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes without your explicit consent. We only share your personal data with third parties when it is legally permissible, such as based on Article 6 of the GDPR and/or when necessary.

 

We may use service providers for data processing, such as external hosting. In such cases, we retain full responsibility for the data processing. Additionally, we may use plugins from other providers on our website. The details of such services and third-party content (Dienste und Inhalte Dritter) are separately listed in this statement.

 

The data processing by third parties is based on a so-called "Data Processing Agreement" according to Article 28 of the GDPR.

 

Data Processing in Third Countries

 

Currently, data processing in third countries, i.e., countries outside the EU, does not take place. If data processing in third countries outside the EU becomes necessary, it will be carried out strictly in compliance with legal requirements.

 

Subject to legal or contractual permissions or your explicit consent, we will process or allow the processing of data in a third country only if that country provides an adequate level of data protection, or if there are appropriate safeguards in place, such as EU Commission's standard contractual clauses, certifications, or binding corporate rules. The specific details are regulated in Articles 44 to 49 of the GDPR. The EU Commission provides information on the following website:

 

https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection_en

 

Security

 

We provide our platform, services, database, and other IT-based offerings in compliance with the current state of technology (organizational, contractual, and technical security measures) to effectively ensure compliance with data protection laws and to protect the data processed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, or unauthorized access.

 

One of the security measures includes the encrypted transmission of data via SSL or TLS encryption between your browser and our server. Additionally, we document data processing activities.

 

Data Deletion and Storage Duration

 

As a general practice, we anonymize or delete personal data as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purposes mentioned earlier and unless legal retention and documentation obligations require further storage.

 

If you wish to receive notifications about products, services, or events (newsletter), the corresponding information will be stored until you unsubscribe.

 

For public contributions, comments, and private messages, such as on our maintained social media profiles, we have limited control over the storage of data entered by you (posts, images, etc.). Your published contributions may remain visible to all readers.

 

If you contact us via the contact form or other channels, your data will be stored until it is no longer necessary for fulfilling the respective purpose, or until you request deletion or revoke your consent.

 

In the context of potential legal claims that may be filed against us, there may be a different storage duration. In such cases, the deletion will occur after the corresponding statutory retention periods have expired or when the related process is concluded.

 

Data Usage on SecondSol Platforms

 

You can use our websites without disclosing your identity or providing any data. At the beginning of your usage, you can also decide on the extent of using your device data. For this purpose, you will be prompted in a banner (noticeable window) to set your preferences for the usage of your personal data. Without your consent, we will only use the device data that is strictly necessary for displaying our websites. The following data (non-exhaustive list) is logged in the form of server log files:

 

  • Address and name of the accessed web pages and files
  • Date and time of access
  • Transferred data volumes
  • Referrer (the page from which you accessed this website's link)
  • Search terms (for search engines as referrers)
  • IP address, stored for the detection of hacking attacks and error investigation
  • Browser type and version, as well as operating system

 

We reserve the right to review this data subsequently if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use. The data will be deleted no later than two months after its collection, provided it is no longer necessary for achieving the purpose, complying with legal requirements, documenting a contract conclusion or consent (logging of the registration process), or fulfilling the respective purpose.

 

Data Usage for Communication

 

Contact | Email

 

When you contact us via the contact form or by email, the information provided will be processed for handling the contact inquiry and its processing.

 

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g., when communicating via email) may have security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible. Our email communication is handled through the web host we have commissioned. In this context, all communication contained in the email is processed. Please be aware that emails are generally not sent encrypted. While transport encryption usually takes place, it may not be present on the sender's and receiver's servers.

 

Newsletter

 

We send newsletters, emails, and other electronic notifications (hereinafter "Newsletter") based on your consent or to registered users of our platform, services, and database. The contents of our newsletter are described during the registration process for our platform, services, and database. Additional information can be found in the newsletter itself.

 

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a GDPR).

 

You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter.

 

Registration - Double-Opt-In

 

The registration for the newsletter is done using the so-called Double-Opt-In procedure. To receive our newsletter, you only need to provide your email address. Optionally, we offer the opportunity to provide a name for a personalized address in the newsletter. After registration, users receive an email asking them to confirm their subscription. This confirmation is necessary to prevent anyone from registering with other people's email addresses. We log the newsletter registrations to be able to provide evidence of the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. For this purpose, we store the registration and confirmation timestamp as well as the IP address.

 

The following statistical surveys, analyses, and logging of the registration process are carried out based on your consent (Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a) and our legitimate interests (Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f GDPR). We have an interest in sending a user-friendly and secure newsletter that serves both our business interests and meets users' expectations.

 

Revocation | Deletion and Restriction of Processing

 

You can revoke your consent to receive our newsletter at any time, cancel the newsletter subscription, or restrict the processing.

 

At the end of each newsletter, we provide you with a link to unsubscribe from the newsletter.

 

We store unsubscribed email addresses for up to three years after the termination of the subscription based on our legitimate interests to be able to provide evidence of the originally given consent or to respond to inquiries. The processing is limited solely to defending possible claims. If the existence of the originally given consent is confirmed by you, we will delete your data upon your request, provided that there are no obligations to permanently respect objections (e.g., inclusion in a blocklist).

 

The logging of the registration process is based on our legitimate interests for the purpose of providing evidence of its proper course. If we commission a service provider to send emails, this is done based on our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure delivery system.

 

Service Provider - rapidmail

 

We use rapidmail for the newsletter delivery. The provider is rapidmail GmbH, Wentzingerstra├če 21, 79106 Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany (hereinafter "rapidmail"). rapidmail is a service that can be used to organize and analyze newsletter deliveries. The data you enter (e.g., email address) for newsletter subscription will be stored on rapidmail's servers in Germany.

 

 

Newsletter - Tracking

 

Our newsletters sent via rapidmail enable us to analyze the behavior of newsletter recipients (hereinafter "newsletter tracking"). This analysis may include tracking how many recipients opened the newsletter message and how often each link in the newsletter was clicked. Additionally, through the use of conversion tracking, it is possible to analyze whether a predefined action (e.g., purchasing a product on this website) was taken after clicking a link in the newsletter. For more information on data analysis by rapidmail newsletters, please visit:

 

https://www.rapidmail.de/datenschutz.

 

The legality of data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by revocation.

 

You can prevent newsletter tracking by unsubscribing from the newsletter.

 

After unsubscribing from the newsletter distribution list, your email address may be stored in a blacklist by us or the newsletter service provider, if necessary, to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f GDPR). The storage in the blacklist is not time-limited. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.

 

For more details, please refer to rapidmail's privacy policy at: https://www.rapidmail.de/datenschutz.

Cookies

Third-Party Services and Content

 

Based on our legitimate interests (e.g., interest in analyzing, optimizing, and economically operating our websites) pursuant to Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f GDPR, we use content or service offerings from third parties (hereinafter "third-party providers"). This allows us to integrate content and services, especially videos or fonts, into our websites and make them visible to users (hereinafter "content").

 

External Hosting

 

We use the hosting provider INTERNET AG Global Network (hereinafter "INTERNET AG") based within the EU. Personal data that users provide on our websites or in email communications is stored on the host's servers.

Google Services

 

The provider of all the following tools is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

 

TAG MANAGER

 

The Google Tag Manager is a tool that allows us to integrate tracking or statistical tools and other technologies on our website. The Google Tag Manager itself does not create user profiles, store cookies, or perform independent analyses. It is solely used for managing and implementing the tools integrated through it. However, the Google Tag Manager does collect your IP address, which may also be transferred to Google's parent company in the United States.

 

The use of Google Tag Manager is based on Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in a quick and uncomplicated integration and management of various tools on their website. If consent is requested, the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 par. 1 TTDSG, to the extent that the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information on the user's device (e.g., device fingerprinting) within the meaning of TTDSG.

 

Consent can be revoked at any time.

 

GOOGLE ADS REMARKETING

 

With Google Ads Remarketing, we can assign certain target groups to individuals who interact with our online offerings. Subsequently, we can display interest-based advertising to these target groups within the Google advertising network (Remarketing or Retargeting).

 

Furthermore, the advertising target groups created with Google Ads Remarketing can be linked to Google's cross-device capabilities. This allows interest-based, personalized advertising messages based on your previous usage and browsing behaviour on one device (e.g., mobile phone) to be displayed on another of your devices (e.g., tablet or PC).

 

If you have a Google account, you can opt-out of personalized advertising using the following link:

CONVERSION -  TRACKING

 

Google Conversion Tracking allows Google and us to determine whether a user has performed certain actions. For example, we can evaluate how often specific buttons on our website are clicked and which products are viewed or purchased most frequently. This information is used to create conversion statistics. We learn the total number of users who clicked on our ads and the actions they took. We do not receive any information that would personally identify the user. Google uses cookies or similar recognition technologies for identification purposes.

 

The use of this service is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 par. 1 TTDSG.

 

Consent can be revoked at any time.

ANALYTICS

 

With the help of Google Analytics, we analyze the behaviour of website users, such as page views, time spent on the website, operating systems used, and user origin. This data is associated with the respective user's end device. However, no user IDs are used for this purpose.

 

Furthermore, we can record mouse movements, scroll actions, and clicks using Google Analytics. Google Analytics also utilizes various modelling approaches to complement the collected data and employs machine learning technologies for data analysis.

 

Google Analytics uses technologies that enable the recognition of the user for the purpose of analyzing user behaviour (e.g., cookies or device fingerprinting). The information about the use of this website collected by Google is usually transmitted to a server in the United States and stored there.

 

The use of this service is based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 par. 1 TTDSG.

 

Consent can be revoked at any time.

Data transfers to the USA are based on the European Commission's Standard Contractual Clauses. Details can be found here:

 

https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

 

IP-Anonymization

 

We have enabled IP-anonymization on this website. This means that your IP address will be truncated by Google within the European Union or other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the website operator, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity, and provide further services related to website and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.

 

Plug-In – Preventing Google Analytics Tracking

(General information about Google Analytics, privacy, processing agreement, standard contractual clauses).

 

WEBFONTS

 

We use Google Fonts font files hosted on our server to display our websites in a user-friendly manner, and therefore, there is no data exchange with Google.

 

LinkedIn Insight Tag

 

On this website, we use 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 the visitors of our website. If a website visitor is registered with LinkedIn, we can analyze various professional data (e.g., career level, company size, country, location, industry, and job title) of our website visitors to better tailor our site to the respective target audience. Furthermore, we can measure whether the visitors of our website make a purchase or other actions (conversion tracking) using the LinkedIn Insight Tag. Conversion tracking can also be done across devices (e.g., from PC to tablet). LinkedIn Insight Tag also provides a retargeting function, allowing us to display targeted advertisements to the website visitors outside our website, with no identification of the advertisement recipient, according to LinkedIn.

 

LinkedIn also collects so-called log files (URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser characteristics, and time of access). IP addresses are truncated or hashed (pseudonymized) if used to reach LinkedIn members across devices. The direct identifiers of LinkedIn members are deleted by LinkedIn after seven days. The remaining pseudonymized data is 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 them for its advertising purposes.

 

For further details, please refer to LinkedIn's privacy policy at:

 

https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy#choices-oblig.

 

Legal Basis

 

If consent has been obtained, the use of the aforementioned service is based solely on Art. 6 par. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 TTDSG.

 

Consent can be revoked at any time.

 

If no consent has been obtained, the use of this service is based on Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f GDPR; the website operator has a legitimate interest in effective advertising measures, including social media.

 

Data transfers to the USA are based on the European Commission's Standard Contractual Clauses. Details can be found here:

 

https://www.linkedin.com/legal/l/dpa and https://www.linkedin.com/legal/l/eu-sccs.

 

Objection to the Use of LinkedIn Insight Tag

 

You can object to the analysis of your usage behaviour and targeted advertising by LinkedIn by visiting the following link:

 

https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out.

 

Furthermore, LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes in their account settings. To avoid linking the data collected on our website with your LinkedIn account, please log out of your LinkedIn account before visiting our website.

 

Plug-ins, Embedded Functions, and Content

 

We integrate functional and content elements into our websites that are obtained from servers of respective third-party providers (referred to as "third-party providers" below). These elements may include graphics, videos, or maps (uniformly referred to as "content" below).

 

This requires that the third-party providers process your IP address, as otherwise, the content cannot be displayed. The IP address is therefore necessary for the presentation of this content or functionality. We strive to minimize the integration of such third-party providers. The third-party providers may use techniques for analysis, such as pixel tags, for statistical evaluations. As a result, they can use the same information that we also retrieve from the websites.

 

 

Online Presences on Social Media

 

In general, we maintain online presences within social networks and platforms, such as LinkedIn. Through these online presences, we communicate with you and provide information about our services and current developments.

 

Due to platform requirements, user data may also be processed outside the European Union, which may entail increased risks for users when enforcing their rights in the EU.

 

For a detailed description of the respective data processing and the options for objection (opt-out), as well as for inquiries about information and the exercise of user rights, users should contact the linked providers, as they alone have access to user data and can take corresponding measures and provide information.

Linking Social Media- | Network Platforms

 

We do not use social plug-ins from social media platforms. On our websites, we provide links to our respective social media accounts. Initially, no connection is established with the respective platform, and no data is automatically sent when using our websites.

 

However, when you use the link to visit our social media pages, data may be sent to the platform. If you are logged in to a platform at the same time, the platform may associate the visit with your user account. Users can prevent the transmission of data to the respective platform by logging out before using our websites and deleting cookies. Even for non-members, there is a possibility that the respective platform may obtain and store the user's IP address, although according to the platform operators, only anonymized IP-addresses are stored in Germany.

 

For complete exclusion of data transmission, users are advised not to use the provided links to social media platforms.

 

Modification of this Privacy Policy

 

Due to possible changes in legal regulations or online offerings, we reserve the right to amend this privacy policy concerning the statements on data processing. If you have provided the necessary consent or if parts of the privacy policy are also part of the contractual relationship with users, changes will only be made with your approval.

 

Therefore, we kindly ask you to regularly inform yourself about the content of this privacy policy in its current version.
