1. Privacy policy

 

Introduction

With the following information, we would like to give you as a „data subject“ an overview of the processing of your personal data by us and your rights under the data protection laws. It is generally possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you wish to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain your consent.

 

The processing of personal data, such as your name, address or e-mail address, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to „Korero GmbH“. By means of this data protection declaration, we would like to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process.

 

We, as the data controllers, have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most comprehensive protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can generally have security vulnerabilities, making absolute protection impossible. For this reason, you are free to transmit personal data to us via alternative means, such as telephone or postal mail.

You can also take simple and easy-to-implement measures to protect your data from unauthorized access by third parties. Therefore, we would like to provide you with some tips on how to handle your data securely:

 

  • Protect your account (login, user, or customer account) and your IT system (computer, laptop, tablet, or mobile device) with secure passwords.
  • Only you should have access to the passwords.
  • Ensure that you always use your passwords only for one account (login, user, or customer account).
  • Do not use the same password for different websites, applications, or online services.
  • Particularly when using publicly accessible or shared IT systems, make sure to log out after each session on a website, application, or online service.

 

 

Passwords should be at least 12 characters long and chosen so they cannot be easily guessed. Therefore, they should not include common words, your own name, or the names of relatives, but should contain uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters.

  1. Definitions

This data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for both the public and our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terminology used in advance.

 

In this data protection declaration, we use, among other things, the following terms:

  1. Personal Data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person.

  1. Data Subject

Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing (our company).

  1. Processing

Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure, or destruction.

  1. Restriction of Processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.

  1. Profiling

Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular, to analyze or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location, or movements.

  1. Pseudonymization

Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

  1. Processor

Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

  1. Recipient

Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients.

  1. Third Party

Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or body other than the data subject, controller, processor, and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorized to process personal data.

  1.  Consent

Consent of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

 

  1. Legal Basis for Processing

Article 6(1)(a) GDPR (in conjunction with Section 25(1) TTDSG) serves as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations required for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6(1)(b) GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of inquiries about our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Article 6(1)(c) GDPR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured on our premises and their name, age, health insurance data, or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital, or other third parties. Then the processing would be based on Article 6(1)(d) GDPR.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases if the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights, and freedoms of the data subject do not override these interests. Such processing operations are particularly permitted because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. It was considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

Our offer is generally directed at adults. Persons under the age of 16 may not transmit personal data to us without the consent of their parents or guardians. We do not request personal data from children and adolescents, do not collect it, and do not pass it on to third parties.

 

  1. Technology

6.1 SSL/TLS Encryption

To ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data, or contact inquiries that you send to us as the operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. 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.

We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.

 

6.2 Data Collection When Visiting the Website

When you use our website for informational purposes only, i.e., if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (so-called „server log files“). Our website collects a series of general data and information each time you or an automated system accesses a page. These general data and information are stored in the server log files. The following can be recorded:

  1. Browser types and versions used,
  2. The operating system used by the accessing system,
  3. The website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer),
  4. The sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
  5. The date and time of access to the website,
  6. A truncated Internet Protocol address (anonymized IP address), and
  7. The Internet service provider of the accessing system.

 

When using these general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about your person. This information is rather needed to:

  • Deliver the contents of our website correctly,
  • Optimize the contents of our website as well as the advertising for it,
  • Ensure the long-term functionality of our IT systems and the technology of our website, and
  • Provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyberattack.

Therefore, we statistically analyze the collected data and information on the one hand and also evaluate it with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

The legal basis for data processing is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes listed above for data collection.

  1. Contents of Our Website

8.1 Contact / Contact Form

When you contact us (e.g., via contact form or email), personal data is collected. The specific data collected when using a contact form is evident from the respective contact form. This data is stored and used solely for the purpose of responding to your inquiry or for contacting you and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. If your contact is aimed at concluding a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR. Your data will be deleted after your request has been fully processed, provided there are no legal retention obligations preventing deletion.

 

8.2 Application Management / Job Market

We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. The processing can also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to us electronically, for example via email or via a web form on the website. If we conclude an employment or service contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. If no contract is concluded with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after the notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of ours stand in the way of deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

The legal basis for processing your data is Art. 88 GDPR in conjunction with Section 26(1) BDSG.

This also applies to profiling based on these provisions within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 GDPR.

If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights, and freedoms, or if the processing is for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
