Web Analysis and Website Optimisation

Our own services for analysing usage data are utilised on this website. They use cookies that enable a statistical analysis of the utilisation of this website by its users, as well as a display of usage-related content or advertisement.

The data generated as a result are processed and saved solely in Germany by etracker on our behalf and are thus subject to strict German and European data privacy laws and standards. etracker was independently audited and certified in this regard and was awarded the data privacy quality seal ePrivacyseal.

Data are processed as per the legal provisions of Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) (legitimate interest) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR). Our concern in the sense of the EU GDPR (legitimate interest) is the optimisation of our online offering and our website. Since the private sphere of our visitors is important to us, data that may allow conclusions to be made about any specific person, such as IP addresses and login or device IDs, are anonymised or pseudonymised as soon as possible. The data are not used for other purposes, etracker does not merge them with its own or other data, and they are not passed on to third parties.

You can object to the data processing described above at any time, insofar as it is done in a person-related manner.

Please exclude me from etracker’s analysis.

Use of Social Media Plug-ins

(1) We have integrated buttons (plug-ins) from various social networks into our internet sites so that you can use the interactive possibilities offered by your social networks on our internet sites as well. These plug-ins are used to provide different functions whose scope and object are determined by the social network operators. To better protect your personal data, we use a 2-click procedure. By pressing the button located directly next to the relevant plug-in, you can activate the plug-in. It is activated when the colour of the button of the plug-in switches from grey to another colour. After that, you can use the plug-in in question by clicking on the button for the plug-in. Please note that etracker is not a social network provider and has no influence on the data processing performed by the relevant service providers. To the extent to which personal data are processed here, the legal basis for the use of plug-ins is Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) of the EU GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest consists of the provision of possible interactions for the purpose of advertisement (recital 47 of the EU GDPR) and the needs-based structuring of our Internet services for interaction with social networks to which the users of our website belong.

(2) The following information provides you with more details about the individual plug-ins.

a) Facebook
Plug-ins from the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, are integrated into our sites. You can recognize the Facebook plug-ins by the Facebook logo or the “like button” on our site. You can find an overview of the Facebook plug-ins here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

If you activate the plug-in, it will create a direct connection between your browser and Facebook’s server. As a result, Facebook receives the information that you used your IP address to visit our site. If you click the Facebook “like button” while logged into your Facebook account, you can refer to content on our website in your Facebook profile.

We would like to note that we, as site operators, receive no knowledge of the content of the data passed on or its use on the part of Facebook and that we bear no responsibility for data processing performed by Facebook. You can find additional information about this in Facebook’s data privacy statement under https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

b) Google Plus
Plug-ins from the social network Google Plus, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountainview, California 94043, USA, are integrated into our websites. You can use the Google +1 button to publish information worldwide. Via the Google +1 button, you and other users receive personalised content from Google and our partners. Google saves both the information that you gave +1 for a content and information about the site you were viewing when you clicked on +1. Your +1’s can be displayed as references together with your profile name and your photo in Google services, such as search results, or in your Google profile or in other areas on websites and advertisements on the Internet.

Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google services for you and other people. To be able to use the Google +1 button, you need a public, globally visible Google profile that must include the name selected for the profile at the very least. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you used when you shared content using your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to users who know your e-mail address or have other identifying information relating to you.

In addition to the usage purposes explained above, the information you provided is used according to Google’s valid data privacy provisions. Google may publish summarised statistics about +1 activities of users or may pass it on to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or affiliated websites.

You can find additional information about this in Google’s data privacy statement under https://policies.google.com/privacy/. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Newsletter

With your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter, which will send you updates on new features, invitations to events, or valuable tips about your etracker solution via email.


To register for our newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after you have registered, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address specified in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we store your IP addresses and times of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to prove your registration and, if necessary, to inform you about possible misuse of your personal data.


The only requirement for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. The details of salutation, surname and first name are used exclusively to address you personally. Your chosen language setting will be used to select the appropriate language version of the newsletter, if available. After your confirmation, we will store your data for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.


You can revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can declare the revocation by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter e-mail or by sending a message to the contact details stated in the imprint.

We point out that we evaluate your user behavior when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the e-mails sent include so-called web beacons or tracking pixels that represent one-pixel image files. For the evaluations, we link the data mentioned above and the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. Also in the newsletter received links contain this ID. Thus, we record when you read our newsletters, which links you click in these and conclude from how attractive and multi-valued the contents of the newsletter are perceived.


You can object to this tracking at any time by sending a message to the contact details given in the imprint. Also, such tracking is not possible if you've turned off image viewing by default in your email client. In this case the newsletter will not be displayed completely and you may not be able to use all the features. If you display the images manually, the above tracking is done. The information will be stored as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. After logging out, we store the data purely statistically and anonymously.

Job Applications

We process personally identifiable information about you for the purpose of your application for employment, to the extent necessary for the decision to establish employment with us. The legal basis is § 26 para. 1 in conjunction with para. 8 sent. 2 BDSG.


Furthermore, we may process personal data about you, as far as this is required to defend against asserted legal claims from the application process against us. The legal basis is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR, for example, the legitimate interest is a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).


Insofar as employment arises between you and us, pursuant to § 26 (1) BDSG we may further process the personal data you have already received for employment purposes if this is necessary for the performance or termination of the employment relationship or for performance or fulfillment of required by a law or collective agreement, an operating or service agreement (collective agreement) and duties of employee representation.


We process data related to your application. This may include general personal information (such as name, address and contact details), details of your qualifications and education, or CVET information, or other information that you provide to us in connection with your application. Incidentally, we can process your publicly available job-related information, such as a profile in professional social media networks.


We may transfer your personal information to companies affiliated with us, to the extent permitted by the purposes and legal basis set forth. Incidentally, personal data are processed on our behalf on the basis of contracts pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR, in particular by host providers or providers of applicant management systems.


A transfer to a third country is not intended.


We store your personal information as long as this is necessary to decide on your application. Insofar as an employment relationship between you and us does not come about, we may also continue to store data as far as necessary to defend against possible legal claims. The application documents will be deleted three months after notification of the rejection decision, unless a longer storage due to litigation is required. With your separate consent, we will store your data for up to 12 months from your consent in order to be able to take your application into consideration again, if necessary, for any later eligible positions.


The provision of personal information is not required by law or contract, nor are you required to provide the personal information. However, the provision of personal information is required to enter into a contract of employment with us. This means that unless you provide us with personal data when applying, we will not enter into any employment relationship with you.


There is no automated decision in individual cases within the meaning of Art. 22 GDPR, that is, the decision on your application is not based solely on automated processing.
