IV. Analytics and advertising.

  1. 1. Google Analytics.

 

  1. a) With your consent, we use Google Analytics on our website, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your device, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including the shortened IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there; it may also be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.
  2. The Google Analytics service processes the data exclusively with anonymization of the IP address by shortening, which ensures that a direct personal reference is excluded. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google LLC server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

 

  1. b) All processing described above, in particular the setting of Google Analytics cookies for reading information on the end device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG. Without this consent, Google Analytics will not be used during your visit to our website.

 

  1. c) The purpose of using Google’s web analysis services and cookies is to increase the efficiency of our website by perfecting the analysis of user behavior in order to take full account of the interests and needs of our users.

 

  1. d) You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the “Privacy settings” on this page. We have concluded an order processing contract with Google for the use of Google Analytics, which obliges Google to protect the data of our website visitors and not to pass it on to third parties. For the transfer of data from the EU to the USA, Google relies on so-called standard data protection clauses of the European Commission, which are intended to ensure compliance with the European level of data protection in the USA. You can find more information about Google Analytics here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de
  2. Information for visitors to websites and apps that use Google Analytics can be found here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245#info_for_visitors

    Google’s privacy policy and terms of use describe how Google handles personal data when Google products, such as Google Analytics, are used: http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/

    You can revoke your consent to the processing of your data at any time with effect for the future. You can use a browser plugin (browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics) to set an opt-out cookie that prevents data collection via Google Analytics. This prevents activity data from being shared with Google Analytics: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

2. Facebook Pixel.

 

To measure our conversion rates, our website uses the visitor activity pixel of Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”).


This tool allows the tracking of page visitors after they have been linked to the website of the provider after clicking on a Facebook ad. This makes it possible to analyze the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes and to optimize future advertising campaigns.

 

For us as the operators of this website, the collected data is anonymous. We are not in a position to arrive at any conclusions as to the identity of users. However, Facebook archives the information and processes it, so that it is possible to make a connection to the respective user profile and Facebook is in a position to use the data for its own promotional purposes in compliance with the Facebook Data Usage Policy. 

Facebook to display ads on Facebook pages as well as in locations outside of Facebook. We as the operator of this website have no control over the use of such data.

 

The use of Facebook Pixel is based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in effective advertising campaigns, which also include social media.

 

The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union.

If you visit one of our presences in the social media (e.g. Facebook), you trigger a processing of your personal data during such a visit. In this case, we are jointly responsible with the operator of the respective social network for the data processing operations within the meaning of Art. 26 DSGVO, provided that we actually make a joint decision with the operator of the social network about the data processing and we also have an influence on the data processing. As far as possible, we have concluded joint responsibility agreements with the operators of the social networks pursuant to Art. Art. 26 DSGVO.

 

We ask you to note that despite the joint responsibility according to Art. 26 DSGVO with the operators of social networks, we do not have a full influence on the data processing of the individual social networks. The corporate policy of the respective provider has a significant influence on our options. In the event of the assertion of data subject rights, we could only forward these requests to the operator of the social network.

In what way Facebook uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties, is not conclusively and clearly stated by Facebook and is not known to us.

 

In Facebook’s Data Privacy Policies, you will find additional information about the protection of your privacy at: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

 

You also have the option to deactivate the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” in the ad settings section under https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. To do this, you first have to log into Facebook.


If you do not have a Facebook account, you can deactivate any user based advertising by Facebook on the website of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/.

Google Web Fonts enables us to use external fonts, known as Google Fonts. When you access our website, your web browser loads the required Google Font into the browser cache. This is required so that your browser can display an optically improved view of our texts. If your browser does not support this function, your computer will use a standard font for display. These web fonts are integrated by means of a server request, usually through a Google server in the USA. In the process, the server will be told which of our web pages you have visited. Google will store the IP address of the browser of your device. We do not have any influence on the extent and the further use of the data that are collected and processed by Google through the use of Google Web Fonts.

Information on the third-party provider: Google Ireland Limited, Google Building, Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland

 

Further information about data protection can be found in the Google privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de.

 

Further information about Google Web Fonts can be found at https://fonts.google.com/https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?hl=de-DE&csw=1 and https://www.google.com/fonts#AboutPlace:about.

 

  1. b) The legal basis is your consent pursuant to point (a) of Art. 6(1) GDPR.

 

  1. c) We use Google Web Fonts for optimisation purposes, in particular to improve your use of our website and make its design more user-friendly.

2. Google Maps.

 

We use the Google Maps API in order to display geographical information. When Google Maps is used, Google (Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) also collects, processes and uses data about the use of the maps function by visitors to the website. Your data will only be forwarded if you have given us your consent to do so pursuant to point (a) of Art. 6(1) GDPR.

 

Already when calling up those sub-pages in which the map of Google Maps is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers and stored there, this may also result in a transmission to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether a user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. 

 

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of making our website appealing and to facilitate the location of places specified by us on the website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

 

You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

When you access a Vimeo video embedded on our website, your browser connects to Vimeo’s servers and data is transferred. This data is collected, stored and processed on the Vimeo servers. Regardless of whether you have a Vimeo account or not, Vimeo collects data about you. This includes your IP address, technical information about your browser type, your operating system or very basic device information. Furthermore, Vimeo stores information about which website you use the Vimeo service and which actions (web activities) you perform on our website. These web activities include, for example, session duration, bounce rate, or which button you clicked on our website with built-in Vimeo function. Vimeo may track and store these actions using cookies and similar technologies.

 

If you are logged in to Vimeo as a registered member, more data can usually be collected because more cookies may have already been set in your browser. In addition, your actions on our website are directly linked to your Vimeo account. To prevent this, you must log out of Vimeo while “surfing” on our website.

 

Vimeo uses this data, among other things, to improve its own service, to communicate with you and to set its own targeted advertising measures. Vimeo emphasizes on its website that only first-party cookies (i.e., cookies from Vimeo itself) are used for embedded videos, as long as you do not interact with the video.

 

Vimeo is headquartered in White Plains in the state of New York (USA). However, its services are offered worldwide. In doing so, the company uses computer systems, databases and servers in the USA and also in other countries. Your data can therefore also be stored and processed on servers in America. The data remains stored at Vimeo until the company no longer has an economic reason for storing it. Then the data will be deleted or anonymized.

 

You always have the option to manage cookies in your browser according to your wishes. For example, if you do not want Vimeo to set cookies and thus collect information about you, you can delete or disable cookies in your browser settings at any time.

4. Google Ads (formerly Google Adwords).

 

We use the offer of Google Ads Conversion to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Ads) on external websites. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. In this way, we pursue the interest of showing you advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.

 

These advertisements are delivered by Google via so-called “ad servers”. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of the ads or clicks by users can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your end device. 

 

For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that a user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.

 

These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of the website of Ads customers and the cookie stored on his computer has not yet expired, Google and the customers can recognize that a user has clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of Ads customers. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media; in particular, we cannot identify the users on the basis of this information.

 

The legal basis is your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.

 

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Ads Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an ad from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is the possibility that Google learns your IP address and stores it.

 

Transmissions to third countries are possible. As appropriate guarantees, so-called standard contractual clauses have been concluded in accordance with Art. 46 DSGVO. For third countries/companies for which an adequacy decision exists, the adequacy decision also applies. More information can be found here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-transfers-outside-eu_de.

 

You can deactivate the tool via the cookie settings.

IX. Payment service providers.

  1. 1. Paypal and stripe.

 

Our website accepts payments via PayPal and via Stripe. The provider of this service is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l & Cie, S.C.A. (22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter “PayPal”) respectively Stripe, Inc., 185 Berry Street, Suite 550, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA (hereinafter “Stripe”).

 

If you choose to pay via PayPal or Stripe, the payment data you enter will be transmitted to PayPal or Stripe.

 

If you select payment via PayPal respectively Stripe, the payment data you provide will be supplied to PayPal respectively Stripe based on Art. 6 (1) (a) (Consent) and Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO (Processing for contract purposes). You have the option to revoke your consent at any time with future effect. It does not affect the processing of data previously collected.

 

Encrypted payment transactions on this website

 

If, after the conclusion of a contract with costs, there is an obligation to transmit your payment data (e.g. account number in the case of direct debit authorization) to us, this data is required for payment processing.

 

Payment transactions via the common means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are made exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

 

With encrypted communication, your payment data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Which information Facebook receives and how it is used are explained in general form in its data use policies. They also contain information about how to contact Facebook, how to object and the setting options for advertisements.

 

The data use policies can be accessed via the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy .

The data about you that are collected in this regard will be processed by Facebook Ltd. and may to that end be transferred to countries outside the European Union.


If you visit one of our pages on social media (e.g. Facebook), doing so will result in your personal data being processed. In this case we, together with the operator of the respective social network, will be responsible for the data processing operations within the meaning of Art. 26 GDPR if we actually reach a joint decision with the operator of the social network on the data processing and we can also exert an influence on the data processing. Where possible, we have reached agreements with the operators of the social network on joint control pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR.

 

Please note that, despite joint control with the operators of social networks pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR, we do not have complete influence over the data processing performed by the individual social networks. The business policy of the respective provider has the determining influence on our options. In the event that rights as data subjects are asserted, we can only pass these queries on to the operator of the social network.

 

Facebook does not clearly and finally state, and we do not know, the extent to which Facebook uses the data collected on visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, the extent to which activities on the Facebook pages are attributed to individual users, for how long Facebook stores these data and whether data collected on a visit to the Facebook page are passed on to third parties.

  1. 2. Information on our Instagram page.

 

a) We also maintain a presence on Instagram. If you visit this, the processing of personal data is generally carried out by the company Meta Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. If you use interactive functions, such as commenting, sharing or rating, the data processing is carried out exclusively by Facebook. 

 

Please note that you yourself are responsible for your use of the Instagram page and its functions. This particularly applies for your use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting or rating).

 

Facebook processes personal data about your account, your IP address, and the devices you use; cookies are used for data collection. These are small files that are stored on your end devices. Facebook describes in general terms what information it receives and how it is used in its data usage guidelines. There you will also find information on how to contact Facebook, the options for objecting, and the settings for advertisements. 

 

The data use policy is available at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy 

The complete data policies of Facebook can be found here: https://de-de.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy

 

You can find the shared responsibility agreement according to Art. 26 DSGVO (effective date: August 31, 2020) with Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum

 

The information may be used by Facebook to provide us, as operators of the Instagram pages, with statistical information such as gender and age distribution about the use of the Instagram page. In addition, Facebook may show you further information or advertisements according to your preferences. Facebook provides more information about this at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights.

The data collected about you in this context is processed by Meta Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union.

 

If you visit one of our presences in the social media (e.g. Instagram), you trigger a processing of your personal data during such a visit. In this case, we are jointly responsible with the operator of the respective social network for the data processing operations within the meaning of Art. 26 DSGVO, provided that we actually make a joint decision with the operator of the social network about the data processing and we also have an influence on the data processing. As far as possible, we have concluded joint responsibility agreements with the operators of the social networks pursuant to Art. Art. 26 DSGVO.

 

We ask you to note that despite the joint responsibility according to Art. 26 DSGVO with the operators of social networks, we do not have a full influence on the data processing of the individual social networks. The corporate policy of the respective provider has a significant influence on our options. In the event of the assertion of data subject rights, we could only forward these requests to the operator of the social network.

In what way Meta uses data from visits to Instagram pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties is not conclusively and clearly stated by Facebook and is not known to us.

 

  1. b) If you as a user are currently logged in to Instagram, a cookie with your Instagram identifier will be on your device. This enables Instagram to verify that you have visited this page and how you used it. The same applies for all other Instagram pages. The Instagram buttons integrated in websites enable Instagram to record your visits to these web pages and assign them to your Instagram profile. These data allow targeted content or advertising to be offered to you.

 

If you want to prevent this, you should log off Instagram or disable the “Stay logged in” function, delete the cookies on your device and close your browser before reopening it. This erases Instagram information that enables you to be identified directly and means you can use our Instagram page without your Instagram identifier being revealed. If you use interactive functions of the page (liking, commenting, messages and others), an Instagram login screen appears. If you log in again, you will be identifiable to Instagram again as a particular user.

 

Information on how to manage or erase existing information can be found in the following Instagram help area. As the provider of the information service, we do not collect and process any other data arising from your use of our service.

3. Information on our Xing presence.

 

XING is a social network operated by XING SE, registered in Hamburg. It enables members to manage mainly business but also private contacts and link to new contacts. Organizations can set up a page on this platform with a logo and brief profile, post news items and initiate discussion groups.
A personal profile with administrator rights must be assigned to the company profile. Conversations in groups can only be conducted using the personal profile of a natural person.

 

Users must register in order to use the network function. There is a free basic version and a chargeable version with additional functions. In contrast to other social networks, XING is based more strongly on the combination of personal and electronic contact, is less commercial and is less visually oriented. It is focused on professional networking on specialist issues with people who have the same professional interests. XING is also frequently used by companies and other organizations to recruit staff and present themselves as an attractive employer. To that end XING is linked with the employer rating platform kununu.
XING provides further information:  https://corporate.xing.com/de/unternehmen/.

 

Coboc currently makes only very limited use of XING through a brief profile and occasional posting of news items that relate primarily to current job opportunities.  No topic-related discussion group is offered at present, but is conceivable in the future.
Current information about data privacy can be found at https://privacy.xing.com/de/datenschutzerklaerung.

 

We do not collect or process any personal data via XING.

XI. Processing and transmission of data (customer and contract data).

  1. We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent necessary for the establishment, content or modification of the legal relationship. 
  2. We transmit personal data to third parties only if this is necessary in the context of the contract, such as to the companies entrusted with the delivery of the goods or the credit institution entrusted with the payment processing.
  3. This is done on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures. If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
  4. We collect, process and use personal data about the use of our Internet pages (usage data) only insofar as this is necessary to enable the user to use the service or to bill the user.
  5. The collected customer data will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
  6. A further transmission of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly agreed to the transmission. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes.

XI. Online Applications.

If you apply to us electronically, i.e. by e-mail or via our web form, we collect and process your personal data for the purpose of processing the application procedure and carrying out pre-contractual measures.

 

By submitting an application on our recruiting page, you express your interest in taking up employment with us. In this context, you provide us with personal data that we use and store exclusively for the purpose of your job search/application.

 

In particular, the following data will be collected: 

 

Name (first and last name)

E-mail address

Telephone number

LinkedIn profile (optional)

Channel, how you became aware of us  

 

You also have the option of uploading meaningful documents such as a cover letter, your resume and references. These may contain further personal data such as date of birth, address, etc.

 

Only authorized employees from the HR department or employees involved in the application process have access to your data.

 

Personal data is stored exclusively for the purpose of filling the vacant position for which you have applied. 

 

The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-neu under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. The consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons who are involved in processing your application.

 

Your data will be stored for a period of 90 days beyond the end of the application process. As a rule, this is done to fulfill legal obligations or to defend against possible claims arising from legal regulations. Subsequently, we are obliged to delete or anonymize your data. In this case, the data is only available to us as so-called metadata without direct personal reference for statistical evaluations (for example, proportion of women or men in applications, number of applications per period, etc.).

 

Inclusion in the applicant pool is based exclusively on your express consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). The provision of consent is voluntary and is not related to the current application process. The person concerned can revoke his or her consent at any time. In this case, the data will be irrevocably deleted from the applicant pool, unless there are legal reasons for retention.

 

If you receive an offer of employment with us as part of the application process and accept it, we will store the personal data collected as part of the application process for at least the duration of the employment relationship.
