How we protect your data
As of: May 2018
We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and keep strictly to the rules of the data protection regulations (DSGVO, TKG, MedienG, ECG, UGB). Likewise, all collected data is protected to the very best of our ability by means of technical and organizational measures. Personal data will only be processed on an intra-company basis. As a general rule, personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Exceptions to this rule shall apply solely in the case of medical or legal requirements, or when you have expressly approved such forwarding of data and have expressed a wish for this to be done.
This statement is intended to provide you with an overview of how we ensure the protection of your personal data and what type of data is collected, and for what purpose.
Connection Data and Runtime Data
In order to ensure the early detection of errors, the optimization of our home pages or the monitoring and evaluation of our communications campaigns, at every call-up of our web pages our web server automatically collects and stores in our server logs certain technical information on the internet browser/connection used, such as browser type/version, operating system, IP address of the accessing computer, connection identification, referrer URL (URL of the previously visited linked site), date and time of the access.
Such data cannot be related to an individual person. This data will not be merged with other data sources (e.g. any registration data, see 4. Services Requiring Registration). Such data will be deleted in line with a predetermined procedure and in accordance with the applicable data protection guidelines.
Services Requiring Registration
Should you wish to use personalized offers and services (some of which are subject to a charge) posted on the website (e.g. newsletters, registration for our information events), we may require additional information in order to be able to carry out these services properly.
This includes in particular your name, your e-mail address as well as other information (e.g. address, phone number). We need these details to check as to whether you are the legitimate owner of the e-mail address indicated (to ensure that abusive registrations are avoided) and find out if we are permitted to send you e-mail messages, whether the registrations for our events are valid or not and to be able to bill the agreed services properly.
Depending on the specific services, you may, within the scope of registrations/enrollments, provide us with additional data (e.g. age, personal messages) on a voluntary basis (for instance, via corresponding form fields). These details help us to simplify and speed up the processes involved in communicating with you and in providing our services. Such data is used by us to tailor our treatment offers more closely to your needs, to provide proper additional information and references and maintain close contact with you.
Basically, this additional information (e.g. e-mail address) includes personal data, i.e. data allowing the identification of individuals. As a general rule, your personal data will not be shared with third parties (cf. 1. General).
As a matter of principle, however, you are able to use our open-access internet offers/services without having to reveal your identity.
Social Plugins (e.g. "Share-Buttons")
We want to point out here expressly that Social Plugins (such as Facebook "Like Buttons") - when enabled by the corresponding user interaction (e.g. clicking) - may collect user data in the background and transfer it to the servers of the respective Social Network (e.g. Facebook). You must be aware of this procedure. Servers external to our structure are beyond our control, and they, therefore, fall outside the scope of our responsibility. In this regard, responsibility for data processing rests with the provider or operator of the respective Social Network.
Remarketing/Retargeting (e.g. Google Display Network)
Remarketing is a cookie-based technology designed to present interest-based (personalized) advertising to internet users. Every time a new visitor comes to the website, a cookie is stored in their browser (see 5. Cookies). This technology makes it possible to recognize the user’s computer again when it appears on other websites, allowing information that is relevant to the respective user (also interactive advertisements) to be displayed on other sites.
Opposition to the (further) Processing and Use of Personal Data
You can at any time withdraw the consent that you have granted us to store and use your personal data in order to provide the relevant services. Please note that, even in the event of such revocation, we reserve the right to continue to use and/or store your data to the extent necessary for billing purposes.
Furthermore, your objection to the continued use of your data means that you will no longer be able to use services that you might have been using and that we will immediately cease the provision of the relevant services. In this case, your personal data will be deleted immediately and will no longer be kept in our data pool.
Right to Access
In accordance with data protection legislation and while respecting controlled procedures, you have the right to be informed at any time about the nature and extent of your personal data stored, the origin and recipients of your data as well as the purpose of the storage. (See 13. Contact Partner for all Matters relating to Privacy).
We We will only process those personal data that you have provided us with for the purpose of your application. The data are used exclusively for processing your application. Therefore, such data are intended for internal use only and will exclusively be forwarded to persons entrusted with the recruitment process. In the event that you wish to exercise your right to have your data erased, to restrict or object to the processing of your personal data during the application procedure, we will immediately cease to process your application. If your application is not successful, we will send you a rejection letter and subsequently delete or destroy your application documents.
