These Tracking Technologies may enable third parties to collect your information automatically in order to improve the browsing experience on our digital assets, to optimize their performance and to ensure a customized user experience, as well as for security and fraud prevention purposes.

LinkedIn

The person responsible for processing has integrated components from LinkedIn on this website. LinkedIn is a business and employment-focused social media platform that works across websites and mobile apps. Primarily for professional networking and career development, the platform allows job seekers to post their CV and employers to post vacancies. 

The operating company of LinkedIn is the LinkedIn Corporation, 1000 W Maude Ave, Sunnyvale, CA 94085, USA. LinkedIn Corporation is a subsidiary of Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically activated by the respective LinkedIn component causes LinkedIn to download a representation of the corresponding LinkedIn component. Further information on the LinkedIn plug-ins can be found at https://developer.linkedin.com/product-catalog/plugins. As part of this technical process, LinkedIn is informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the person concerned is logged in to LinkedIn at the same time, LinkedIn recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting each time the person concerned calls up our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the LinkedIn component and assigned to the respective LinkedIn account of the person concerned by LinkedIn. If the person concerned clicks on one of the LinkedIn buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Share" button, LinkedIn assigns this information to the personal LinkedIn user account of the person concerned and saves this personal data.

LinkedIn always receives information via the LinkedIn component that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is logged in to LinkedIn at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the LinkedIn component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to LinkedIn, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their LinkedIn account before accessing our website.

The data protection regulations published by LinkedIn, which are available at https://de.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by LinkedIn. 

Instagram

The controller has integrated components of the service Instagram on this website. Instagram is a service that qualifies as an audiovisual platform and allows users to share photos and videos and also to redistribute such data on other social networks.

The operating company of the Instagram services is Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website operated by the controller is called up and on which an Instagram component (Insta button) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Instagram component to download a representation of the corresponding component from Instagram. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Instagram receives knowledge about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in to Instagram at the same time, Instagram recognizes which specific subpage the data subject is visiting with each call to our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Instagram component and assigned by Instagram to the respective Instagram account of the data subject. If the data subject activates one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website, the data and information thus transmitted will be assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the data subject and stored and processed by Instagram.

Instagram always receives information via the Instagram component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged into Instagram at the time of calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Instagram component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Instagram, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her Instagram account before accessing our website.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Instagram can be found at https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388 and https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/.

Where the data is stored

Please note that our companies and our trusted partners and service providers are located around the world. For the purposes explained in this Privacy Policy, we store and process all non-personal data that we collect in different jurisdictions.

How long the data is retained

Please note that we retain the information we collect for as long as is necessary to provide our services, comply with our legal and contractual obligations to you, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

We can correct, supplement or delete incorrect or incomplete data at any time at our own discretion.

How we protect the data

The hosting service for our digital assets provides us with the online platform through which we can offer our services to you. Your data may be stored through our hosting provider's data storage, databases and general applications. It stores your data on secure servers behind a firewall, and it offers secure HTTPS access to most areas of its services.

Notwithstanding the measures and efforts taken by us and our hosting provider, we cannot and do not guarantee the absolute privacy or security of any information you upload, post or otherwise disclose to us or others.

For this reason, we ask that, whenever possible, you not provide us or others with confidential information that you believe could significantly or permanently harm you if disclosed. In addition, since email and instant messaging are not considered secure forms of communication, we ask that you do not share any confidential information through any of these communication channels.

Updating or Changing the Privacy Policy

We may, in our sole discretion, revise this Privacy Policy from time to time, the version posted on the Website will always be current (see “As of Date” statement). We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy for changes. If there are any significant changes, we will post a notice on our website. Your continued use of the services after notification of changes has been posted to our website constitutes your acknowledgment and acceptance of the changes to the Privacy Policy and your agreement to be bound by the terms of those changes.
