As a company whose activities focus on data processing, Insiders Technologies GmbH places a great deal of importance on protecting your data and privacy.Therefore, we would like to inform you about the collection and use of personal data on our website.

Data protection

​​​​​

1. Scope of application

1.1 This data protection declaration applies to the use of the websites offered by Insiders Technologies GmbH, which you can reach via www.insiders-technologies.de and www.insiders-technologies.com (hereinafter referred to as "Insiders Websites"). Insofar as we provide explanations of our online presence in social networks in this data protection declaration, this online presence is also covered by the scope of application. This data protection declaration does not apply to other Insiders Technologies GmbH websites or to the websites of other service providers to which the Insiders websites link.

1.2 Responsible in line with the meaning of the EU Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO):
Insiders Technologies GmbH
Brüsseler Straße 1
67657 Kaiserslautern
Germany
info@insiders-technologies.de
www.insiders-technologies.de

2. Personal data

Personal data is all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. The basic personal date is your name. In addition, your gender, date of birth, address, occupation, e-mail address and IP address 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 any 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 For the use of the Insiders Websites, the provision of personal data is neither required by law nor by contract and is also not required for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide any personal data about yourself. However, you cannot visit the Insiders websites without transmitting the IP address you use.

4.2 Contact with us via our contact form and registration for a training course require the provision or collection of the data described in more detail in sections 6 or 7. If you do not provide us with this information, you cannot use the contact form or register for training.

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
  • querying domain
  • used web browser
  • operating system used
  • Notification of successful and unsuccessful retrieval
  • Entry and exit sides
  • data volume transmitted
  • Date and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file
  • IP address of the requesting computer

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

5.2 In all other respects, we will only process your personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us and this is permitted by law or if you have given your consent. We use the personal data provided by you exclusively for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration or expressly agreed with you.

5.3 We engage 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 paragraph 12), hosting provider or data center. When such service providers work for us, they may be given access to your personal data as recipients. However, these service providers are then also contractually obliged to comply with data protection by means of a so-called order processing agreement; the statutory 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. Anything to the contrary shall only apply if this is necessary for the execution of the notified or agreed purposes and is permitted under applicable data protection law without consent, if you have expressly given your consent or if we are legally obliged to do so. Section 5.3 remains unaffected and applies independently of this section.

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 may be processed by us with your stated contact data for the purposes of answering and contacting you. You can also enter a pseudonym (a fictitious name) as the 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 DSGVO).

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

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

6.4 Six (6) months after sending the reply, we delete the data transmitted by you via the contact form, unless we are legally obliged to keep it for a longer period or we still need your personal data to carry out or process an existing contractual relationship or for purposes of proof. In such a case, we delete the relevant data after the legal retention period has expired or as soon as we no longer need the data to carry out or process an existing contractual relationship or for purposes of proof.

6.5 You may revoke your consent at any time in the future (for contact details see section 20 below). Your contact data will be stored after the revocation for as long and as far as we are obliged to do so within the scope of the legal storage obligations or we still need your personal data to carry out or process an existing contractual relationship or for purposes of proof.

7. Registration for training

7.1 If you register for a training course, you agree that the contact data you provide (name, company, address, e-mail and telephone) and any message you enter may be processed by us for the conclusion and execution of the training contract. Training participants are welcomed at training courses, stating their name and the company. Your consent and our legitimate interest in knowing who is a training course participant and concludes the training contract with us form the legal basis for processing (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and f DSGVO).

7.2 For the purpose of concluding the training contract you have given the following declaration of consent: "Yes, I give my consent that my data entered above may be processed by Insiders Technologies GmbH for the purpose of concluding and executing the training contract. In this context, I agree to the privacy policy. I can revoke this consent with effect for the future at any time."

7.3 As long as we have received the contact data you provided us via the registration form only for the conclusion and execution of the training contract, we will only process this personal data in order to conclude and execute the training contract with you, but not for other purposes. Apart from cases in which we are legally obliged to do so, we will not pass on your contact data to third parties in this case.

7.4 You may revoke your consent at any time in the future (for contact details see section 20 below). Your contact data will be stored after the revocation for as long and as far as we are obliged to do so within the scope of the legal storage obligations or we still need your personal data for the implementation or processing of an existing contractual relationship (in particular the training contract) or for purposes of proof.

8. Application

8.1 If you contact us via job advertisements or for the purpose of an unsolicited application and send us application documents by e-mail, you agree that we process your contact and application data including your possibly sent CV and other application documents for the purpose of processing your application and making contact with you. This includes using your name to create name tags 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 processing (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b and f DSGVO).

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

8.3 If your application is successful and you enter into an employment relationship with us, we will transfer the contact and application data you submit with your application to our personnel management and your personnel file. In the event of a cancellation, we will delete your contact and application data six (6) months after sending the cancellation to you, unless we are legally obliged to keep it for a longer period, you consent to longer storage (we will ask you for this consent separately) or we still need your contact and application data to carry out or process an existing contractual relationship or for verification purposes. In such a case, we will delete the relevant data after expiry of the legal retention period or the period agreed with you within the framework of the consent, or as soon as we no longer need the data to carry out or process an existing contractual relationship or for purposes of proof.

8.4 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 section 20 below). Your contact and application data will be stored after revocation for as long and to the extent that we are obliged to do so within the framework of the statutory retention obligations or we still need your personal data to carry out or process an existing contractual relationship or for purposes of proof.

12. Use of cookies

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

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

  • 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 advertising to the user, expiration date: 180 days, HTTP Cookie)
  • NID: google.com (Registers a unique ID that identifies the device of a returning user. The ID is used for targeted advertising, expiration date: 180 days, HTTP Cookie)
  • _ga: insiders-technologies.de (Registriert eine eindeutige ID, die verwendet wird, um statistische Daten dazu, wie der Besucher die Website nutzt, zu generieren, expiration date: 180 days, HTTP Cookie)
  • _gid: insiders-technologies.de (Registers a unique ID that is used to generate statistical information about how the visitor uses the site, expiration date: 1 day, HTTP Cookie)
  • bubble-anmiation-played: insiders-technologies.de (Registers whether the bubble has already moved and prevents it from playing again, HTTP Cookie)

12.3 The cookies used by Google Analytics and their meaning are described at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en and https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl The cookies used by Google and their meaning are also described at https://policies.google.com/technologies/types

12.4 If you click on one of the social media buttons available on the Insiders websites, the linked website of the social network opens. From there, additional cookies may be stored on your end device. These cookies are not under our control. The respective provider is solely responsible for the data protection-compliant behaviour of such cookies.

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

12.6 The legal basis for our use of cookies is our legitimate interest in designing our website on the Insiders websites in accordance with requirements (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO).

12.7 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.

12.8 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 express warning. In the security settings of your browser, you can also view and delete these stored cookies at any time and restrict or prohibit the acceptance of cookies.

13. Use of Google Analytics

13.1 As described in more detail in sections 13.2 ff. below, we use the online service Google Analytics of the US company Google Inc. Google Analytics on the Insiders websites to analyse the data traffic on the Insiders websites and to this end collect various data about you and your user behaviour on the Insiders websites (e.g. which web browser you use, where you come from, which language setting you use, which search engines you use, the date and time you visit 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 to better understand it so that we can optimize our website and make a better offer available to users. 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 DSGVO). The user data collected with Google Analytics is stored and then deleted.

13.2 The Insiders websites use functions of the web analysis 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 which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the Insiders websites (see also Section 11). 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.

13.3 In the event of activation of IP anonymisation, which we use on the Insiders websites (see also Section 13.5), your IP address will, however, previously be reduced by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to 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 these insiders websites, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the insiders websites, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

13.4 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 Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the Insiders websites (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

13.5 You can also prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics, which you create on the Insiders websites and which are stored in the cookie, by activating the link (see 13.8) below. An opt-out cookie will be stored on your computer, which will prevent the future collection of your data when you visit the Insiders websites (however, this does not apply to other websites you visit and other browsers you use on the same computer): <a href="javascript:gaOptout()">Deactivate Google Analytics</a>. This alternative is particularly suitable for mobile devices. If you choose this option, do not delete the opt-out cookie. Otherwise you will lose the protection provided by this opt-out cookie until you reinstall it.

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

13.7 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:

13.8 Here you have the opportunity to object to the recording of your visit for the anonymous statistical recording and evaluation of your user behavior on the Insider Websites. The previous processing of your personal data remains unaffected by the revocation.

14. 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.

15. Use Social Media Plug-ins

15.1 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:

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

15.2 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 DSGVO).

15.3 In order to increase data protection, we do not use the social media plug-ins mentioned in section 15.1 directly, but instead use the so-called Shariff solution (http://heise.de/-2467514). 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.

15.4 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

15.5 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.

16. iframes and embedded content

16.1 We use iframes (inline frames) on the Insiders websites to play embedded content from the following provider:

YouTube, www.youtube.com

16.2 The legal basis for our use of iframes is our legitimate interest in making YouTube videos that are relevant to us conveniently accessible to users of the Insiders Websites (Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO).

16.3 When you visit a web page of the Insiders Websites with the iframe mentioned in Section 16.1 above, your browser will establish a direct link to the provider's servers in order to transfer embedded content from there to your browser. This content is integrated into the Insiders web pages via the iframe, so that it is displayed as a kind of mini web page in the Insiders web pages that you visit. You will not be able to see that you are browsing two websites at the same time. The Internet address of YouTube is not displayed. You can recognize the YouTube video by the typical red play button with a white triangle.

16.4 YouTube, as the provider of the embedded content that is displayed to you via the iframe, is informed by the direct connection to your browser that you have visited the corresponding Insiders websites. If you are logged in to your YouTube user account at that time, YouTube can associate your visit to the Insiders websites with your user account even if you do not click on the embedded YouTube video content. If you decide to click and use the offered content, YouTube learns this. Your browser then sends further usage data to YouTube, which can be stored and reused by this provider.

16.5 For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by YouTube, please refer to YouTube's privacy policy on their website. The following website is known to us in this regard:

YouTube, https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de

There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and settings to protect your privacy.

17. Facebook Fanpage

With regard to our Facebook Fanpage, we are jointly responsible with Facebook Ireland Limited for the purposes of data protection (Art. 26 DSGVO). 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.

18. Adobe Typekit

18.1 The Insiders websites use Adobe's 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.

18.2 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 uniform, visually pleasing display of our Insiders Websites on the accessing end devices (Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO).

18.3 For more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Adobe, please refer to Adobe's privacy policy on their website. The following websites are known to us in this regard:

There you will also find more information about your rights in this regard and settings to protect your privacy.

19. Google Maps

19.1 On the Insiders websites, we use map material from Google Maps and use the Google Maps API programming interface for its integration and geographical display. As is usual with Google services, Google also collects data about the use of the service when using Google Maps and processes this data. In this respect, it cannot be ruled out that Google will at least learn the IP address that is assigned to you during your visit to the Insiders websites. Depending on what other data (e.g. in cookies) is stored on your terminal device, Google may also gain further knowledge about you while you are surfing the Insiders websites.

19.2 The legal basis for our use of Google Maps is our legitimate interest in showing you our location via the interactive map service Google Maps, which is used by millions of Internet users, and in using Google Maps (Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO).

19.3 Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Google can be found in Google's privacy policy on Google's website. The following websites are known to us in this regard:

20. IT-Security

We take various technical and organizational security measures to protect the integrity and confidentiality of your personal data. For this purpose, 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.

21. Data protection contact details

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