Insofar as you order our online newsletter, your personal data will only be processed for the purpose of regularly sending our newsletter and the associated measurement of success on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 UAbs. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. After registration, we will send you a confirmation e-mail which will allow us to verify your identity and re-confirm your approval. Your data will be forwarded to us via our provider by e-mail. In case of non-availability, we are unfortunately unable to provide you with our newsletter, contact you and process your request. An automated decision-making process will not be carried out.

We use the service MailChimp to send our newsletter. MailChimp is a service of The Rocket Science Group, LLC (512 Means Street, Suite 404, Atlanta, GA 30318 in the following called “Mailchimp”). The data stored during the registration is transmitted to Mailchimp and stored by Mailchimp. After registration, Mailchimp will e-mail you to confirm your registration. In addition, MailChimp offers various analysis possibilities on how the sent newsletters are viewed and used, e.g. to how many users an e-mail was sent, whether e-mails were rejected and whether users have unsubscribed from the list after receiving an e-mail. These evaluations are only group-related and are not used by us for individual reviews. MailChimp also uses the analysis tool Google Analytics by Google, Inc. and may include it in newsletters. Further details about Google Analytics can be found in this privacy policy under “Google Analytics”. Further information about privacy in connection with MailChimp can be found at: http://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/
Mailchimp is certified under the EU/-US Privacy Shield, which regulates the protection of personal data transferred from the European Union to the USA. Further information can be found at: https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. It is possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, for example via a link at the end of each newsletter.

7 Social media

We would like to get in contact with you and other parties, customers and users. For this we use different social networks. Which individual social networks we use can be found in these legal notes. However, we would like to point out that we have no influence on which data is collected. As a rule, however, this is data that is used for market research and advertising purposes. This is usually done by creating user profiles and the interests identified from them. This makes it possible to display customized advertising. For this reason, the use of social networks may also set cookies for you.

Furthermore, we would like to point out that your data may also be processed outside the European Union and that you therefore run the risk of not being able to enforce your rights properly. With regard to providers based in the United States, however, we would like to point out that an EU-US Privacy Shield exists, which guarantees an equivalent level of data protection as in the European Union. Basically, we would like to provide you with information in the easiest and fastest way possible or give you the opportunity to share such information. Therefore, unless you have consented to data processing on the respective platform, the legal basis is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. If you have consented on the respective platform, your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. a) DSGVO is the legal basis for the processing. You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The legality of the data processing until revocation remains unaffected.

8 Online application

We process the personal data transmitted by you exclusively in the application procedure. Your data will be transmitted to us in encrypted form by the so-called Transport Layer Security (TLS). We will provide you with the necessary information in accordance with Art. 13 DSGVO upon receipt of your application by means of a reply e-mail or for downloading in the online application form. In the area of job advertisements, we use the software “Personio” of the company Personio GmbH, Buttermelcherstraße 16, 80469 Munich, Germany. If you use the online application form you will be redirected to the recruiting page of Alexander Thamm GmbH at Personio. For your application via the online form, the data protection statement stated there applies in its most current form.

Your data will be forwarded to us via our provider by e-mail. In case of non-availability, we are unfortunately unable to register you for one of our seminars and workshops. An automated decision-making process will not be carried out.

A transfer of the personal data provided by you to a third country or an international organization does not take place and is not planned in the future. A transfer of your personal data to external third parties does not take place. Your personal data, which you provide us with via the registration form, will be stored by us for the duration of the contractual relationship and for the duration of the legal retention period and will be deleted or blocked afterwards.

8.2 Protection of stored data

We use technical and organizational security measurements to protect the personal data you provide to us from manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved and adapted according to the state of the art. It cannot be ruled out that data transmitted by you without encryption may be viewed by third parties during transmission. Please note that no conclusively secure transmission can be guaranteed with regard to data transmission via the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail). Sensitive data should therefore either not be transmitted over the Internet at all or only via a secure connection (SSL).

The legal basis for the use of tracking cookies is the consent given by you in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 UAbs. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.

11 Facebook

11.1 Facebook plug-ins (Like and Share button)

You can recognize the Facebook plug-ins by the “Like, Share or Send-buttons” (“Like”) on our website. These are provided by Facebook Ireland Ltd. (4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland; hereinafter referred to as “Facebook”). A detailed overview of the Facebook plug-ins is available at the following link: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When you visit our website, a direct connection is established between the Facebook server and your browser via the plug-in. This tells Facebook that you have visited our site using your IP address. If the “Like-Button” is clicked while you are logged into your Facebook account, it is possible that you can link the contents of our website on your Facebook profile. This enables Facebook to assign your visit to our website to your user account.

Your data will only be transmitted after your express consent. We would like to point out that we do not obtain knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Facebook. The Facebook privacy policy can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation.

11.2 Facebook (Link)

On our site, we use a reference (link) to our presence on the social network Facebook (Facebook fan page) to interact with Facebook users who visit the fan page. For this Facebook fan page, we have teamed up with Facebook Ireland Ltd. (4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland; hereinafter referred to as “Facebook”) as joint responsible party pursuant to Art. 26 of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). The agreement on joint responsibility can be found under the following link: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum

With the processing of your personal data, we pursue the purpose of providing visitors with an up-to-date information platform and an opportunity to interact on Facebook. The basis of the processing is therefore our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. The interests of the users are always taken into account. Information on the legal basis for processing on Facebook can be found at http://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/legal_bases/.

When visiting our Facebook fan page, Facebook collects and processes personal data on the basis of the legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Part of this data is made available to us in summarized form via the so-called “Insights” (Facebook user statistics). A cookie is stored for this purpose on the user’s end device. This serves to be able to use this information again at a later date. The cookie remains active for a period of two years if it is not deleted. Further information from Facebook on the use of cookies can be found in the Facebook cookie policy at https://de-de.facebook.com/policies/cookies/. The transmission of these user statistics is exclusively in an anonymous form and there is no possibility for us to access the data on which they are based.

Whether Facebook transfers personal data to third parties is beyond our control. It is possible that Facebook Inc. based in the USA processes personal data outside the European Union. Facebook Inc. has been certified under the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and has thus committed itself to comply with the European data protection regulations. Personal data will not be passed on to third parties by us. Further information on the “Privacy Shield” can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacyshield

If you are already logged into Facebook via your personal user account, the information about your visit to our website will be automatically forwarded to Facebook.

11.3 Facebook Pixel

(1) Within our online offer, the so-called “Facebook pixel” of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are located in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”), is used due to our legitimate interests in analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer and for these purposes.

(2) Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).

(3) With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is able to determine the visitors to our online offer as a target group for the presentation of ads (so-called “Facebook ads”). We use the Facebook Pixel in order to display the Facebook Ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offering or who exhibit certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called “custom audiences”). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we want to ensure that our Facebook Ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not appear annoying. The Facebook pixel also allows us to track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users are redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called “conversion”).

(4) The Facebook pixel is integrated directly by Facebook when our websites are accessed and can store a so-called cookie, i.e. a small file, on the user’s device. If the user then logs into Facebook or visits Facebook when logged in, the visit to our online offer is noted in his or her profile. The data collected about the user is anonymous to us, so we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of them. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and can be used by Facebook as well as for our own market research and advertising purposes. If we send data to Facebook for comparison purposes, it is encrypted locally on the browser and only then sent to Facebook via a secure https connection. This is done solely for the purpose of comparing the data with the data similarly encrypted by Facebook.

(5) Furthermore, we use the additional function “extended comparison” when using the Facebook pixel. Here, data such as telephone numbers, email addresses or Facebook IDs of users are transmitted (encrypted) to Facebook to form target groups (“Custom Audiences” or “Look Alike Audiences”). Further information on “advanced matching”: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/611774685654668

(6) Also based on our legitimate interests, we use the “Custom Audiences from File” procedure of the social network Facebook, Inc. In this case, the email addresses of the newsletter recipients are uploaded to Facebook. The upload process is encrypted. The upload is used solely to determine recipients of our Facebook ads. We want to ensure that the ads are only displayed to users who have an interest in our information and services.

(7) The processing of the data by Facebook is carried out within the framework of Facebook’s data use policy. Accordingly, general information on the display of Facebook Ads, in the Facebook Data Usage Policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. Specific information and details about the Facebook pixel and its functionality can be found in the Facebook help area: www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.

(8) You may object to the collection by the Facebook Pixel and use of your data for the display of Facebook Ads. To control what types of ads are displayed to you within Facebook, you can go to the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions on usage-based advertising settings at https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. The settings are platform-independent, meaning that they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

You can opt-out of Facebook Pixel storage of a user profile and information about your visit to our website and the placement of Facebook Pixel Tracking cookies on other websites by clicking this opt-out link.

13.3 Google Maps

Our website uses Google Maps API (Application Programming Interface) for the visual display of geographical information (location maps). Google Maps is operated by Google Ireland Ltd. (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; hereinafter: “Google”). This enables us to make it easier for you to find us or to point you to specific locations. In this respect, our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 lit. f) DSGVO is to offer you a user-friendly website. By using Google Maps, you consent to the collection, processing and use of the data automatically collected during the use of Google Maps as well as the data entered by you by Google or one of its representatives or third parties. Google must therefore also be named as the recipient of the data. When using Google Maps, information on the use of our website, including your IP address, is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
This data processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 lit. f) DSGVO, as the IP address is required to provide you with the content. In this processing, the cooperation with Google is based on a contract on joint responsibility according to Art. 26 DSGVO. This can be found at https://privacy.google.com/intl/de/businesses/mapscontrollerterms/. The transmission of data to the USA is associated with risks under data protection law. If you do not wish the transmission to take place, it is possible to deactivate the Google Maps service and prevent the data transfer to Google. To do this, you must deactivate JavaScript in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use the map display.

13.4 Google reCAPTCHA

This website uses the Google reCAPTCHA service, operated by Google Ireland Ltd. (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; hereinafter “Google”), which protects the website from spam and fraud. The reCAPTCHA Service is designed to prevent abusive activities from being carried out by automated software on the Website. This is achieved by verifying that the input is actually from a natural person. For verification purposes, data such as the address of the page on which the captcha is used, the user’s IP address, the user’s input behavior (e.g. answering the reCAPTCHA question, input speed into the form fields, the order of selection of input fields, etc.) as well as browser, browser size and resolution, browser plug-ins, date, language setting, the display instructions (CSS) and scripts (JavaScript) of the website and the mouse or touch events within the website are collected and processed. If the user of the website is registered with Google, the Google account is also recognized and assigned.

Cookies from other Google services such as Gmail, Search and Analytics are also read by Google in this case. Data which is collected and stored in the context of the use of Google reCAPTCHA is sent to Google in encrypted form. Whether the Captcha is displayed in the form of a checkbox or by text input on the page is decided by the subsequent evaluation by Google. A readout or saving of personal data from the input fields of the respective form does not take place.

Legal basis for the use of reCAPTCHA is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 lit. f) DSGVO, which consists in protecting our website.
