iPoint Privacy Notice

1. Introduction

We would like to use the information below to provide you "data subject" with an overview of our processing of your personal data and your rights under data protection law. It is generally possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you wish to make use of special services offered by our company through our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent.

Personal data, such as your name, address, or email address, is always processed in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the iPoint-systems GmbH. The aim of this Privacy Notice is to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process.

As the data controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are free to submit personal data on alternative ways, such as by phone or by post to us.

iPoint-systems GmbH

4. Technology

4.1 SSL/TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login details or contact requests that you send to us as the website operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by your browser’s address bar reading "https://" instead of "http://" and the lock symbol in the browser bar.

We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.

 

4.2 Data collection when visiting the website

If you only use our website for informational purposes, i.e., if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the data your browser sends our server (in what is known as "server log files"). Our website collects a range of general data and information each time you access a website or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server’s log files. It may be collected:

  1. the types and versions used,
  2. the operating system used by the accessing system,
  3. the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (called a referrer),
  4. the sub-pages accessed via an accessing system on our website,
  5. the date and time the website is accessed,
  6. a truncated internet protocol address (anonymized IP address) and
  7. the accessing system's internet service provider.

 

No conclusions are drawn about you when using this general data and information. Instead, this information is needed,

  1. to properly deliver our website content,
  2. to optimize the content of our website as well as to advertise it,
  3. to ensure the continued functioning of our IT systems and our website’s technology
  4. as well as to provide the information necessary for law enforcement authorities to prosecute in the event of a cyber-attack.

 

This collected data and information is therefore statistically analyzed and further analyzed by us with the aim of increasing data protection and data security within our company to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data being processed by us. The anonymous data from the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is based on the purposes listed above for the collection of data.

 

5. Cookies

5.1 General information about cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your IT system (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our website.

 

Information generated from the specific device used is stored in cookies. This does not mean, however, that we will gain immediate knowledge of your identity.

The use of cookies helps us make it more convenient for you to use our website. For example, we use session cookies to detect whether you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are erased automatically when you leave our website.

We also use temporary cookies to optimize user-friendliness. These cookies are stored on your device for a specific period of time. If you return to our website to use our services, cookies allow us to automatically recognize that you have visited our website previously and remember the inputs and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

We also use cookies to statistically record the use of our website and analyses it for the purpose of optimizing our services. These cookies allow us to automatically recognize that you have already visited our website when you visit our website again. These cookies are automatically erased after a defined period of time.

 

5.2 Legal basis for the use of cookies

The data processed by cookies, which are required for the proper functioning of the website, are to safeguard our legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(f) GDPR.

For all other cookies you have given your consent to this through our opt-in cookie banner in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

 

6. Contents of our website

6.1 Contact/contact form

Personal data is collected when you contact us (e.g., using our contact form or by email). If you use a contact form to get in touch with us, the contact form you use will indicate the data being collected. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your query or establishing contact and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1(f)f GDPR. If the aim of you contacting us is to conclude a contract, processing is also legally based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(b) GDPR. Your data will be erased once we have finished processing your query. This is the case when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been clarified in a conclusive manner and there are no statutory retention obligations in place that prevent its erasure.

 

6.2 Application management/job exchange

We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of carrying out the application process. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to us electronically, for example by email or via a web form on the website. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically erased two (2) months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of ours prevent their erasure. Other legitimate interests in this context include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the German Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz [AGG]).

Legal basis for the processing of the data is Article 88 GDPR, § 26 I BDSG

 

7. Our activities in social networks

To allow us to communicate with you on social networks and inform you about our services, we run our own pages on these social networks. If you visit one of our social media pages, we and the provider of the social media network are joint controllers (Art. 26 GDPR) regarding to the processing operations triggered thereby, which concern personal data.

We are not the original provider of these pages, but only use them within the scope of the options offered to us by the respective providers.

We would therefore like to point out as a precautionary measure that your data may also be processed outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area. Use of these networks may therefore involve data protection risks for you since the protection of your rights may be difficult, e.g., your rights to information, erasure, objection, etc. Processing on social networks frequently takes place directly for advertising purposes or for the analysis of user behavior by network providers, and we have no control over this. If the provider creates user profiles, cookies are often used or user behavior may be assigned directly to your own member profile on the respective social network (if you are logged in).

The processing operations of personal data described are carried out in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of the respective provider in order to communicate with you in a timely manner or to inform you about our services. If you have to grant your consent to the respective providers to process your data as a user, the legal basis for this processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR in conjunction with Article 7 GDPR.

Since we have no access to these providers? databases, we would like to point out that you would be best placed to exercise your rights (e.g., to information, rectification, erasure, etc.) directly with the respective provider. More information on the processing of your data on social networks and your options for exercising your right to object or your right of revocation (opt out) is listed below for each of the social network providers we use:

9. Advertising

9.1 Google Ads (formerly AdWords)

Our website uses the functions of Google Ads, which we use to advertise this website in Google’s search results as well as on third party websites. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). To this end, Google places a cookie on your device’s browser, which automatically uses a pseudonymous cookie ID and facilitates interest-based advertising on the basis of the websites you have visited.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

No further processing will take place unless you have consented to Google linking your internet and app browsing history to your Google account and using information from your Google account to personalize ads you view online. In this case, if you are logged in to Google during your visit to our website, Google will use your information in conjunction with Google Analytics data to create and define target audience lists for cross-device remarketing.

More information and the privacy policy regarding advertising and Google can be found here:

https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

 

9.2 Google AdSense

We have integrated Google AdSense on this website. Google AdSense is an online service that enables the placement of advertisements on third-party websites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that selects the advertisements displayed on third-party websites according to the content of the third-party site in question. Google AdSense facilitates the targeting of internet users on the basis of their interests, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.

The Google AdSense component is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of the Google AdSense component is to display advertisements on our website. Google AdSense places a cookie on your IT system. The placement of this cookie enables Alphabet Inc. to analyze the usage of our website. Each time someone opens an individual page of this website, which is run by us and on which a Google AdSense component is integrated, the Google AdSense component in question will trigger the browser on your IT system to automatically send data to Alphabet Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA, for online marketing purposes and to charge commission. As part of this technical process, Alphabet Inc. receives information about personal data, such as your IP address, which, among other things, enables Alphabet Inc. to track the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently charge commission.

 

You can prevent cookies being placed by our website at any time by adjusting your web browser’s settings to permanently refuse cookies. Adjusting the browser’s settings in this way would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from placing a cookie on your IT system. In addition, a cookie already placed by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time through a web browser or other software programs.

Google AdSense also uses tracking bugs. A tracking bug is a miniature graphic embedded in websites to enable the recording of log files and analytics for subsequent statistical analysis. The embedded tracking bug allows Alphabet Inc. to determine if and when a website was opened by your IT system and what links you clicked. Among other things, tracking bugs help analyze the flow of visitors to a website.

Through Google AdSense, personal data and information, which also includes your IP address and is necessary for the collection and billing of advertisements displayed, is sent to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. This personal data is stored and processed in the United States of America. Alphabet Inc. may disclose personal data collected through this technical process to third parties.

Google AdSense is explained in more detail at

https://www.google.de/adsense/start/.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

 

9.3 Google Ads with conversion tracking

We have integrated Google Ads on this website. Google Ads is an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to run adverts in both Google and Google advertising network search engine results. Google Ads allows an advertiser to predefine keywords that will display an ad on Google's search engine results only when the search engine retrieves a keyword-related search result. On the Google Network, ads are distributed to relevant websites using an automated algorithm and according to predefined keywords.

Google Ads is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of Google Ads is to promote our website by displaying interest-based advertising on third-party websites and in the search engine results of Google's search engine and by displaying third-party ads on our website.

If you arrive on our website via a Google advert, what is known as a conversion cookie will be stored on your IT system by Google. A conversion cookie expires after 30 days and is not used to identify you. Provided the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to trace whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart of an online shop system, were accessed on our website. The conversion cookie tells us and Google whether any revenues was generated by a user who arrived on our website via an Ads ad, i.e. if they completed or cancelled a purchase.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to provide visitor statistics for our website. We then use these visitor statistics to determine the total number of users who have been directed to us through Ads ads in order to determine the success or failure of each Ads ad and to optimize our Ads ads for the future. Neither our company nor any other Google Ads advertisers receive any information from Google that could identify you.

 

Conversion cookies are used to store personal information, such as the websites you visit. Each time someone visits our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection you are using, is sent to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through this technical process to third parties.

You can prevent cookies being placed by our website at any time by adjusting your web browser’s settings to permanently refuse cookies. Adjusting the browser’s settings in this way would also prevent Google from placing a conversion cookie on your IT system. In addition, a cookie already placed by Google Ads can be deleted at any time through a web browser or other software programs.

You also have the option to object to Google's interest-based advertising. To do this, you must visit www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the web browsers you use and adjust the settings there as desired.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

10. Plugins and other services

10.1 Google Maps

We use Google Maps (API) on our website, provided through Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive maps to visually display geographic information. For example, by using this service, you can view our location and make it easier for you to reach us.

When you access sub-pages in which a Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transferred to Google's servers in the US and stored there. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to or whether you have no user account with them at all. When you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not want your profile associated with Google, you will need to log out of your Google account. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and analysis it. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right.

If you do not agree with the future transmission of your data to Google as part of your use of Google Maps, you have the option of completely deactivating the Google Maps web service by switching off the JavaScript application in your browser. You will then be unable to use Google Maps and therefore the map displayed on this website.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

 

The Google terms of use can be found at https://www.google.com/policies/terms/regional.html, and the additional Google Maps terms of use can be found at https://www.google.com/help/terms_maps/.

Detailed information on data protection with respect to the use of Google Maps is available on Google’s website ("Google Privacy Policy"): https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.

 

10.2 Google reCAPTCHA

This website also uses the reCAPTCHA feature provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). This feature is primarily used to differentiate whether an entry is made by a natural person or whether the function is being misused through mechanical and automated processing. Use of the service also involves sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

Further information about Google reCAPTCHA and Google's privacy policy can be found at: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

 

10.3 Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager, a cookie-free domain that does not collect personally identifiable information.

With this tool, "website tags" (i.e., keywords that are integrated into HTML elements) can be implemented and managed via an interface. By using the Google Tag Manager, we can automatically track which button, link, or customized image you have actively clicked and then record which content on our website is of particular interest to you.

The tool also triggers other tags that may themselves collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If you have disabled it at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

 

10.4 Google WebFonts

Our website uses web fonts provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland for the uniform display of fonts. When you access a website, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, the browser you are using must connect to Google's servers. This gives Google information that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our website.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

More information about Google Web Fonts can be found at developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google's privacy policy:

https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

10.5 YouTube (videos)

We have integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an online video portal that allows video publishers to freely place video clips and allows other to view, rate and comment on videos free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos. Both full film and television broadcasts as well as music videos, trailers and user-generated videos are available via the online portal.

YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Each time a visitor opens an individual page of the website run by us and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) is integrated, the YouTube component in question will trigger the browser on your IT system to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Additional information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google will receive information about the specific sub-page of our website you visit.

If the data subject is logged onto YouTube at the same time as they visit our website, YouTube identifies the specific sub-page of our website your visit when a sub-page containing a YouTube video is accessed. This information is collected through YouTube and Google and assigned to your YouTube account.

Through the YouTube component, YouTube and Google receive information that you have visited our website whenever you are logged in to YouTube at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether you click on a YouTube video or not. If you do not want this information transferred to YouTube and Google, you can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account before visiting our website.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

YouTube's privacy policy, available at https://www.google.com/intl/gb/policies/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.
