4. Protection of Stored Data
Our company and our SERVICE PROVIDER(s) use technical and organizational security measures to protect the personal data you provide to us from manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. The security measures are continuously improved and adapted according to the state of the art. Unencrypted data can possibly be viewed by third parties. For this reason, we would like to point out that no secure transmission can be guaranteed with regard to data transmission via the Internet (e.g. when communicating by unencrypted e-mail). Sensitive data should therefore either not be transmitted at all or only via a secure connection (SSL). You can determine the SSL status of the connection by looking at the address line of your browser ("https").
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
However, in the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymization is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet.
The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. Cookies are only set on our site on the basis of your consent. In addition, you can permanently prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
LinkedIn Insight Tag
On our website, we make use of what is called the LinkedIn Insight tag (or LinkedIn Pixel) of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland (“LinkedIn”). By including this tag, we can display interest-based advertisements (“ads”) that are relevant to you as a user of our website when visiting the LinkedIn social network or other websites that also use this method, and we obtain statistics about website visitors and demographics. Furthermore, we can evaluate your use of our LinkedIn advertising and interest in our offers by means of a conversion tracking function, and also show you LinkedIn ads on other websites via retargeting. We thereby pursue our interest in improving the effectiveness of LinkedIn ads and making our website more interesting for you.
If you accept the corresponding cookie, your browser establishes a direct connection with LinkedIn’s server, both when visiting the LinkedIn website as well as websites that have the LinkedIn Insight Tag built in. While LinkedIn and we are jointly responsible for collecting your usage data when you visit our website and transmitting the data to the provider, LinkedIn is solely responsible for the relevant processing to carry out the purposes described once the data has been transmitted. We have no influence on the scope and nature of the use of the data by LinkedIn, so we therefore inform you in accordance with our state of knowledge: through the integration of the LinkedIn Insight Tag, LinkedIn is informed that you have accessed the corresponding web page of our website, or clicked on an ad from us. If you are registered with a LinkedIn service, LinkedIn can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with LinkedIn or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will learn your IP address, time slot and other identifiers, and link them to the actions associated with you.
It is possible to deactivate the LinkedIn Insight Tag and implement other advertising objections in the settings for advertisements at www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/62931?trk=microsites-frontend_legal_privacy-policy&lang=en and supplementary at www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out. For additional settings options and information, please see the LinkedIn Privacy Center: https://privacy.linkedin.com/en-us?lr=1/.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is Article 6 paragraph 1 point (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in that you consent to the setting of the respective cookie. At the same time, you give your consent that your personal data may also be transmitted to the LinkedIn company in the United States. We would like to point out that third countries such as the United States generally do not offer a comparable level of data protection and privacy, and access by third parties (e.g. local authorities) can therefore not be ruled out. You can revoke your consent at any time, most easily via our Cookie Manager.
