Privacy Policy

It is a matter of course for us to respect your personal rights. This also applies to the handling of personal data when you visit and use this website. Therefore, we act in accordance with the applicable data protection law. In the following, you will learn how we handle your personal data and, in particular, which data we process for which purposes and what rights you are entitled to.

Privacy policy according to EU-GDPR

1 Scope of application

1.1 This privacy policy applies to the use of the websites offered by Insiders Technologies GmbH, which you can reach at www.insiders-technologies.de and www.insiders-technologies.com (hereinafter referred to as “Insiders websites”). Insofar as we provide explanations regarding our online presences in social networks in this data protection declaration, these online presences are also covered by the scope of application. This data protection declaration does not apply to other websites of Insiders Technologies GmbH or to the websites of other service providers to which the Insiders websites refer via a link.

1.2 The responsible party within the meaning of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is:
Insiders Technologies GmbH
Brüsseler Street 1
67657 Kaiserslautern
Germany
info@insiders-technologies.de
www.insiders-technologies.de

2 Personal data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. The basic personal data is your name. In addition, however, your gender, date of birth, address, occupation, e-mail address and IP address, for example, are also considered personal data. Non-personal data, on the other hand, is data with which the determination of your actual identity is impossible or at least requires considerable effort. This includes, for example, the aforementioned information if we receive it anonymously or under a pseudonym and therefore cannot assign it to a natural person

3 Principle of anonymity

When using the Insiders websites, you remain anonymous to us as long as you do not voluntarily provide us with personal data by writing to us using our contact form or registering for a training course using the registration form

4 Provision of personal data

4.1 The provision of personal data is neither legally nor contractually required for the use of the Insiders websites, nor is it necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide any personal data. However, you will not be able to visit the Insiders websites without the transmission of your IP address.

4.2. Contacting us via our contact form, applying via our application form for an advertised position or submitting an unsolicited application requires the provision or collection of the data described in more detail in sections 6 to 8. If you do not provide us with this data, you will not be able to use the contact form or apply to us.

5 Processing of personal data

5.1 We automatically collect and record the following data on each of your visits to the Insiders websites:

  • country of origin
  • requesting domain
  • web browser used
  • operating system used
  • message about successful and unsuccessful retrieval
  • entry and exit pages
  • amount of data transferred
  • date and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file
  • IP address of the requesting computer

This data is stored on our web server in log files by default. The storage period for the IP address is one week, after which it is automatically deleted.

5.2 Otherwise, we will only process your personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us and this is permitted by law or you have consented. We use the personal data provided by you exclusively for the purposes communicated in this data protection declaration or expressly agreed with you.

5.3 We commission various service providers to support us in the provision, operation and maintenance of our IT systems, including the Insiders websites. These include, for example, hardware and software suppliers, Google Inc. ((for the web analytics service Google Analytics, see section 13), hosting providers or data centers. If such service providers act on our behalf, it is possible that they may have access to your personal data as recipients. However, these service providers are then also contractually obligated to comply with data protection via a so-called order processing agreement; the legal provisions on data protection also apply to our service providers anyway.

5.4 Your personal data will not be passed on, sold or otherwise transferred to third parties. Something else only applies if this is necessary for the processing of the communicated or agreed purposes and is permitted under applicable data protection law without consent, you have expressly consented or we are legally obliged to do so. Section 5.3 remains unaffected, of course, and applies independently of this Section 5.4.

5.5 The personal data provided by you on the Insiders Websites or collected by us will not be used for automated decision-making.

6 Contact Form

6.1 If you contact us via the contact form you agree that your message with your provided contact details may be processed by us for the purpose of replying and contacting you. You can also provide a pseudonym (i.e. an invented name) as your name. Your consent and our legitimate interest in being able to contact users of the Insiders websites electronically form the legal basis for the processing (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and f GDPR).

6.2 For the purpose of contacting us via the contact form you have provided the following declaration of consent: “Yes, I give my consent that my data entered above as well as my message may be processed by Insiders Technologies GmbH for the purpose of processing, contacting and replying. In this context, I agree to the privacy policy. I can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.”

6.3 We will only process the data you provide via the contact form in order to process your message and reply to you. As long as we have received your contact data, which you provide via the contact form, only for processing, contacting and responding to your message, we will not use this personal data for any other purpose. Apart from cases in which we are legally obliged to do so, we also do not pass on your contact data to third parties in this case.

6.4 Six (6) months after sending the response, we will delete the data you submitted via the contact form, unless we are required by law to retain it for a longer period or we still need your personal data to implement or process an existing contractual relationship or for verification purposes. In such cases, we will delete the relevant data after the statutory retention period has expired or as soon as we no longer need the data to implement or process an existing contractual relationship or for verification purposes.

6.5 You can revoke your consent for the future at any time (for contact details, see section 20 below). After revocation, your contact data will be stored for as long as and to the extent that we are obliged to do so within the scope of statutory retention obligations or we still need your personal data for the implementation or processing of an existing contractual relationship or for verification purposes.

7 Application

7.1 If you contact us via job advertisements or for the purpose of a speculative application and send us application documents via our application form or by e-mail, you agree that we may process your contact and application data, including any CV you may have sent us and other application documents, for the purpose of processing your application and contacting you. This also includes the use of your name to create name badges for our Talents Day. The implementation of pre-contractual measures and our legitimate interest in receiving applications and contacting applicants form the legal basis for the processing (Art. 6 (1) lit. b and f GDPR).

7.2 We will only process the contact and application data you have provided to us in order to process your application and respond to you. As long as we have received your contact and application data that you have provided to us via your application only for the purpose of processing, contacting and responding to your application, we will not use this personal data for any other purpose. Apart from cases in which we are legally obliged to do so, we also do not pass on your contact and application data to third parties in this case.

7.3 If your application is successful and you enter into an employment relationship with us, we will transfer the contact and application data you provided with your application to our personnel management and your personnel file. In the event of a rejection, we will delete your contact and application data six (6) months after sending the rejection to you, unless we are legally obligated to store the data for a longer period of time, you consent to a longer storage period (in which case we will ask you for this consent separately), or we still need your contact and application data to implement or process an existing contractual relationship or for verification purposes. In such cases, we will delete the relevant data after expiry of the statutory retention period or the period agreed with you as part of the consent or as soon as we no longer need the data for the implementation or processing of an existing contractual relationship or for verification purposes.

7.4 As long as your application does not result in an employment relationship with us, you can revoke your consent at any time for the future (for contact details, see item 20 below). After revocation, your contact and application data will be stored for as long as and to the extent that we are obligated to do so within the scope of statutory retention obligations or we still need your personal data for the implementation or processing of an existing contractual relationship or for verification purposes.

8 Revocation of consent

8.1 Within the framework of the legal provisions, you have the option at any time to revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data for the future. To do so, please contact the office mentioned in Section 20 below.

8.2 We would like to point out that the processing of your personal data, which we have carried out on the basis of your granted consent until your revocation, is not affected by the revocation and remains lawful.

9 Right of access, rectification, cancellation, restriction of processing, opposition and transferability of data

Within the framework of the legal provisions, you have the right to receive information from us about your personal data processed by us, as well as to assert the right to rectification, deletion, restriction of processing, objection to processing and data portability. For the exact conditions under which you are entitled to the aforementioned rights, please refer to Articles 15 to 21 GDPR and Sections 34, 35 and 37 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). If you wish to exercise one or more of the aforementioned rights, please also contact the persons indicated in Section 20.

10 Right of appeal

Within the framework of the legal provisions, you have the right to contact the competent supervisory authority with a complaint regarding data protection. The competent authority for us is the State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information of Rhineland-Palatinate, which you can reach together with the supervisory authority via the website https://www.datenschutz.rlp.de/de/startseite/.

11 Use of cookies

11.1 On the Insiders websites we use so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your end device (PC, smartphone, tablet, etc.). Some of the cookies we use are deleted from your drive (hard drive, solid-state disk, flash memory, etc.) at the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your terminal device and allow us to recognize your terminal device on your next visit (so-called persistent cookies). We also use cookies from third-party providers that allow them to process personal data from you and possibly merge the information obtained with other data that these third-party providers have already stored about you or collected from you during your use of the third-party services.

11.2 As soon as you visit the Insiders websites, the following cookies are set:

  • Borlabs: borlabs-cookie is a technically necessary cookie to store your cookie consents. borlabs-cookie does not process personal data. The borlabs-cookie stores your consents that you gave when you entered the website. If you wish to revoke these consents, simply delete the cookie in your browser. When you re-enter/reload the website, you will be asked again for your cookie consent.
  • IDE: doubleclick.net (Used by Google DoubleClick to register and report the user’s actions on the website after viewing or clicking on one of the provider’s ads, with the purpose of measuring the effectiveness of an advertisement and displaying targeted ads to the user, expiration time: 180 days, HTTP cookie).
  • NID: google.com (Registers a unique ID that identifies a returning user’s device. The ID is used for targeted advertising, expiration time: 180 days, HTTP cookie).
  • _ga: insiders-technologies.com (Registers a unique ID that is used to generate statistical data about how the visitor uses the website, expiration time: 180 days, HTTP cookie)
  • _gid: insiders-technologies.de (Registers a unique ID that is used to generate statistical data about how the visitor uses the website, expiration time: 1 day, HTTP cookie)
  • bubble-anmiation-played: insiders-technologies.de (Registers whether the bubble has already moved and prevents repeated playing, HTTP cookie

11.3 The cookies used by Google Analytics and their meaning are described at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de and https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage. The cookies used by Google and their meaning are also described at https://policies.google.com/technologies/types.

11.4 If you click on one of the social media buttons available on the Insiders websites, the website of the social network linked to it will open. From there, additional cookies may be stored on your end device. These cookies are beyond our sphere of influence. The respective provider alone is responsible for the data protection-compliant behavior of such cookies.

11.5 The content of the cookies is encrypted (exception: cookieconsent_dismissed) to prevent third parties from gaining unauthorized access to the data contained therein.

11.6 The legal basis for our use of cookies is our legitimate interest in designing our web presence on the Insiders websites to meet our needs (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR).

11.7 In our borlabs-cookie as well as in the security settings of your browser, you can view and delete the stored cookies at any time and restrict or prohibit the acceptance of cookies.

11.8 When using third-party services on the Insiders websites (e.g. YouTube videos) or when you click on a link, third-party cookies may be used without our explicit warning. In the security settings of your browser, you can also view and delete these stored cookies at any time, as well as restrict or prohibit the acceptance of cookies.

 

12 Use of Google Analytics

12.1 As described in more detail in sections 13.2 et seq. below, we use the online service Google Analytics of the U.S. company Google Inc. on the Insiders websites. Google Analytics analyzes the data traffic on the Insiders websites and collects various data about you and your user behavior on the Insiders websites (e.g. which web browser you use, where you come from, which language settings you use, which search engines you use, date and time of your visit to the Insiders websites, how long you stay on which page). Your IP address is only collected anonymously; for details, see sections 13.3 and 13.6. Our use of Google Analytics is for the purpose of tracking user behavior on the Insiders websites and thus better understanding it, so that we can optimize our website and provide users with a better experience. The legal basis for our use of Google Analytics is your consent to use our web presence on the Insiders websites for marketing purposes and to optimize it according to your needs (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). The user data collected with Google Analytics is stored and then deleted.

12.2 The Insiders websites use functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the Insiders websites (see also section 12). The information generated by the cookie about your use of these Insiders websites is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

12.3 In case of activation of IP anonymization, which we use on the Insiders Websites (see also section 13.5), your IP address will, however, be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this Insiders website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Insiders website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity 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.

12.4 You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this Insiders website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the Insiders Websites (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

12.5 You can also prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics that you create on the Insiders Websites and that is stored in the cookie by activating the link below (see 13.8). An opt-out cookie will be stored on your computer that prevents the future collection of your data when you visit the Insiders Websites (but this does not apply to other websites you visit and other browsers you use on the same computer). This alternative is particularly suitable for mobile devices. If you choose to do so, do not delete the opt-out cookie. Otherwise, you will lose the protection provided by this opt-out cookie until you install it again.

12.6 Google Analytics has been extended on the Insiders websites with the code “anonymizeIP”. The use of this code leads to an anonymous collection of your IP address through so-called IP masking. The last octet of your IP address is thereby set to zero. For IPv6 addresses, this affects the last 80 of the 128 bits. This still happens in the working memory before the data is written to the hard disk (see also https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052).

12.7 Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Google Analytics can be found in Google’s privacy policy on the Google website. We are familiar with the following websites in this respect:

12.8 You have the option here to object to the recording of your visit for anonymous statistical recording and evaluation of your user behavior on the Insiders websites. The previous processing of your personal data remains unaffected by the revocation:
– Deactivate Google Analytics now

13 Use of Social media links

We display social media links of the following social networks on the Insiders websites:

This is a link to our company presence in the corresponding social network; the link does not contain any further functions (unlike the Like button of Facebook, for example). When you click on a social media button on the Insiders websites, only the corresponding linked website opens.

14 Use of Social media Plug-ins

14.1 We use social media plug-ins on the Insiders websites, but they are not activated by themselves. Instead of using the social media plug-ins directly, we display social media buttons for the following social networks on the Insiders websites without activating the associated social media plug-ins:

Activation of the functions of the social media plug-ins only takes place when you trigger the activation by actively clicking on them. You can find more detailed explanations of the social media buttons from Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, XING, YouTube and Instagram in section 15.3. We inform you about the processing of personal data using the “XING Share Button” function in section 15.4.

14.2 The legal basis for our use of social media plug-ins is our legitimate interest in providing users of the Insiders websites with functions with which they can share content found on our website with other users, using the social networks with which they have set up a user account and which they therefore also otherwise use (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR).

14.3 In order to increase data protection, we do not use the social media plug-ins mentioned in section 15.1 directly, but use the so-called Shariff solution (http://heise.de/-2467514) for this purpose. When you visit the Insiders websites, the use of the Shariff solution initially means that no personal data is passed on to the providers of these plug-ins. An embedded script retrieves how often the respective page has already been shared. Initially, only the IP address of our server is transmitted. Our social buttons only establish direct contact between you as a user of the Insiders websites and the respective social network when you actively click on the social button. If you are already logged in to a social network, contact is established with LinkedIn without another window opening. If you activate the respective plug-in via the social button, personal data is automatically transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there, i.e. at the respective provider in the USA; however, this does not apply to XING. We have no influence on the data collected and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes and the storage periods. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the respective logo. To the best of our knowledge, the plug-in providers store this data in most cases as usage profiles and use it for purposes of advertising, market research or demand-oriented design of their website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular for the display of needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on the Insiders websites; this also applies to users of the respective social network who are not logged in. You can prevent a linkage of your membership data, which is available at the respective social network, with the data that the social network collects about you by means of the social media plug-in on the Insiders Websites by not activating the social media button on the Insiders Websites while you are logged into the social network, but by logging out of the respective social network beforehand.

14.4 The “XING Share Button” is used on the Insiders websites. When you access the Insiders websites, a connection to servers of XING SE (hereinafter referred to as “XING”) is established for a short time via your browser, with which the “XING Share Button” functions (in particular the calculation / display of the counter value) are provided. XING does not store any personal data about you when you call up the Insiders websites. In particular, XING does not store any IP addresses. There is also no evaluation of your usage behavior via the use of cookies in connection with the “XING Share Button”. The current data protection information on the “XING Share button” and supplementary information can be found on this website: https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection

14.5 Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the privacy statements of these providers on their websites. We are aware of the following websites in this regard:

The providers will also provide you with further information on your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy.

15 Facebook

With regard to our Facebook page, we are jointly responsible with Facebook Ireland Limited for the purposes of data protection (Art. 26 GDPR). To this end, we have concluded a joint responsibility agreement with Facebook Ireland Limited, which you can view here (https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum). According to this agreement, Facebook Ireland Limited has agreed, among other things, to assume primary responsibility for the processing of user data (so-called “Insights data”). Only Facebook Ireland Limited makes decisions regarding the processing of Insights data and implements them. Facebook Ireland Limited decides, at its sole discretion, how to fulfill its obligations under the shared responsibility agreement it has entered into with us. Therefore, we cannot provide you with any further information here about the collection of personal data on our Facebook Fan Page; Facebook Ireland Limited also assumes the legal information obligations. If you have questions about the processing of Insights data concerning you, Facebook Ireland Limited will answer them. Regardless of this, you can assert your data subject rights both with Facebook Ireland Limited and with us.

16 Adobe Typekit

16.1 The Insiders websites use Adobe Typekit, which requires your browser to download the required fonts into its cache. For this purpose, your browser establishes a connection to the servers of the provider Adobe and transmits your IP address used by your end device at that time. Adobe thus learns that a user with your IP address is visiting our Insiders websites. If your browser does not support the Typekit fonts used by the Insiders websites, the display will be based on a standard font instead.

16.2 The legal basis for our use of Typekit is our legitimate interest in displaying texts and fonts of our web presence on the Insiders websites correctly and independently of the system you are using in order to ensure a consistent, visually pleasing display of our Insiders websites on the accessing end devices (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR).

16.3 For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Adobe, please refer to Adobe’s privacy policy on its website. The following websites are known to us in this regard:
– Adobe, https://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/policies/typekit.html
– Adobe, https://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/policy.htmlhttps://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/policies/typekit.html
There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and settings for protecting your privacy.

17 Google Maps

We link to Google Maps on our website. The link does not contain any further functions. If you click on the Google Maps button on the Insiders websites, only the corresponding linked website will open.

18 IT-Security

We take various technical and organizational security measures to protect the integrity and confidentiality of your personal data. To this end, your personal data is encrypted during transmission using so-called Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL). This means that the communication between your computer and the servers of the Insiders websites takes place using a recognized encryption method, which is considered secure in the current version. If your browser supports SSL, the transmission of personal data is protected by this function. In this case, most browsers will indicate whether the security protocol is supported by displaying a short dialog box or a graphic icon. You can find more information in the help function of your browser.

19 Data protection contact details

For all questions in connection with and relating to our data protection and your data stored by us, please contact our data protection officer.
