With regard to the data processing described in more detail below, users and data subjects have the right
In addition, the provider is obliged to inform all recipients to whom data has been disclosed by the provider of any correction or deletion of data or restriction of processing that takes place on the basis of Arts. 16, 17(1), 18 GDPR. However, this obligation shall not apply if such notification is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. Without prejudice to this, the user has a right to information about these recipients.
Likewise, in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR, users and data subjects have the right to object to the future processing of data related to them, provided that the data is processed by the provider in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. In particular, they can object to the processing of data for the purpose of direct advertising.
Your data processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies, the deletion of the data does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations and no other information is provided below on individual processing procedures.
Data is transmitted by your Internet browser to us or to our web space provider and stored in server log files for technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable website. These server log files are used to collect information such as the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you accessed our website (referrer URL), the page(s) of our website that you visit, the date and time of each access, the IP address of the Internet connection from which our website is used, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider.
The data collected in this way is temporarily stored but not together with other data related to you.
This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website.
The data will be deleted again after seven days at the latest unless further storage is required for purposes of evidence. Otherwise, the data is exempt from erasure in whole or in part until final clarification of the incident.

We give you the option of applying to us via our website. For these digital applications, your applicant and application data will be collected and processed electronically by us for the purpose of handling the application process.
The legal basis for this processing is Section 26(1) sentence 1 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) in conjunction with Art. 88(1) GDPR.
If an employment contract is concluded after the application process, we will store the data you submitted during the application in your personnel file for the purpose of the usual organisational and administrative process; this is, of course, done in compliance with the more extensive legal obligations.
The legal basis for this processing is also Section 26(1) sentence 1 of the BDSG in conjunction with Art. 88(1) GDPR.
In the event that an application is rejected, we will automatically erase the data submitted to us two months after notification of the rejection. However, the data will not be erased if it is required to be stored for a longer period of up to four months or until the conclusion of legal proceedings due to legal provisions, e.g. due to the obligation to provide evidence according to the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
The legal basis in this case is Art. 6(1)(F) GDPR and Section 24(1) no. 2 BDSG. Our legitimate interest lies in legal defence or enforcement of rights.
If you expressly consent to your data being stored for a longer period of time, e.g. for the purpose of your inclusion in a database of applicants or interested parties, the data will be processed on the basis of your consent. The legal basis is then Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. However, you can of course withdraw your consent at any time in accordance with Art. 7(3) GDPR by making a declaration to us with effect for the future.
If you subscribe to our job vacancies, we process your email address in order to be able to inform you about new job vacancies by email.
The legal basis for this is Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. You may withdraw your consent to this subscription at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7(3) GDPR. To do this, you only need to inform us of your withdrawal or click on the “unsubscribe” link contained in the relevant email.
On our website, we also promote presences on the social networks listed below. They are integrated using linked graphics of the respective networks. Using a linked graphic prevents your system from automatically connecting to the respective server of the social network to display a graphic of the network itself when a page containing a social media link is called up. The user is only redirected to the service of the respective social network when they click on the corresponding graphic .
After the user has been forwarded, information about the user is collected by the respective network. It is possible that the data collected in this way will be processed in the USA.
This is initially data such as IP address, date, time and page visited. If the user is logged into his or her user account of the respective network during this time, the network operator may be able to assign the information collected from the user’s specific visit to the user’s personal account. If the user interacts via a “Share” button provided by the respective network, this information may be stored in the user’s personal user account and may be published. If the user wants to prevent the collected information from being directly assigned to their user account, they should log out before clicking on the graphic. It is also possible to achieve this by configuring the user account accordingly.
The following social networks are integrated into our site by means of a link:
Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland, a subsidiary of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.
LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, a subsidiary of LinkedIn Corporation, 1000 W. Maude Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94085 USA.
XING AG, Dammtorstrasse 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.
Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.
We use the YouTube.com platform to post our own videos and make them publicly accessible. This is a video portal of YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, hereinafter referred to as “YouTube”. Google provides further information on the collection and use of data as well as your rights and protection options in this regard in the data protection notices available at https://policies.google.com/privacy.
We have embedded YouTube videos into our online offering. The videos are stored on http://www.youtube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all embedded in extended data protection mode, i.e. no data about you as a user is transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. The use of a two-click solution prevents a connection from being automatically established to the respective server of the third-party provider when our website is accessed in order to display the external content. You are therefore able to decide for yourself whether the provider collects information about you. The data mentioned in the next paragraph will only be transmitted when you play the videos. We have no influence on this data transmission.
When you visit the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. This connection is necessary in order to be able to display the respective video on our website via your Internet browser. During this process, YouTube will record and process at least your IP address, the date and time and the webpage you visited. If you are logged in to Google/YouTube at the same time, Google/YouTube will assign the connection information to your Google/YouTube account. If you wish to prevent this, you should either log out of Google/YouTube before visiting our website or configure the appropriate settings in your Google/YouTube user account. Google/YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. Evaluation of this kind is performed in particular for the provision of demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website (even for users who are not logged in). You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles and you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
In the event that personal data is transferred to Google LLC., which is based in the USA, Google uses the EU’s Standard Contractual Clauses for the relevant data transfers in order to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the EEA to third countries. These are based on the commission’s decision of 5 February 2010 on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors established in third countries under Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the council and remain a permissible legal mechanism for the transfer of data under the GDPR. Further information on this is provided by Google.
If you subscribe to our free newsletter, the data requested from you for this purpose, i.e. your email address and, optionally, your name and address, will be transmitted to us. At the same time, we store the IP address of the Internet connection from which you access our website as well as the date and time of your subscription and confirmation. We use the data collected exclusively for the purpose of sending the newsletter. By completing the subscription process, you give your consent to receive the newsletter, which may be withdrawn at any time.

If you do not confirm your subscription within one week, your data will be automatically erased.
Your data is processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR).
You may withdraw your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7(3) GDPR. To do this, you only need to inform us of your withdrawal or click on the “unsubscribe” link contained in each newsletter.
We use the CleverReach service to send the newsletter. The provider is CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstrasse 43, 26180 Rastede, Germany. CleverReach is a service that can be used to organise and analyse newsletter distribution. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (e.g. email address) is stored on CleverReach’s servers in Germany or Ireland.
Our newsletters sent with CleverReach allow us to analyse the behaviour of newsletter recipients. For example, we can analyse how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often each link in the newsletter was clicked on.
The data you provide us with for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of CleverReach after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members’ area) remains unaffected by this.
We have concluded a contract with CleverReach in which we oblige CleverReach to protect our customers’ data and not to pass it on to third parties.

Eventbrite also processes your data in the USA, among other places. Access by US authorities to the data stored by Eventbrite cannot be ruled out. The transfer of personal data to the USA may be associated with various risks to the lawfulness and security of data processing with regard to the adequacy of the level of protection, as the USA is currently considered a third country from a data protection perspective. You do not have the same rights there as within the EU/EEA. You may not have legal remedies against access by authorities.
Eventbrite processes personal data of our registered event participants on our behalf. To ensure an adequate level of data protection, we have concluded EU standard contractual clauses with the service provider. These are based on Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/914 of 4 June 2021 on standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to third countries in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council.

The survey may not be anonymous (voluntary indication of name / position). If the feedback is particularly bad or good, we would like to get in touch with the customer (“customer-specific feedback”). Customer-specific feedback will be deleted 90 days after completion of processing (including clarification/communication) and transferred to the evaluation of the customer satisfaction survey as "project-related survey results".
Your data will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the personalized evaluation and possible subsequent contact at any time with effect for the future in accordance with Art. 7 Para. 3 DSGVO. All you have to do is inform us of your revocation: email@example.com.
The surveys are evaluated without reference to natural persons, only in relation to the customer’s name (company) and the project. All corresponding evaluation results (project-related survey results) are kept for up to 5 years.

Grand Canal Harbour Dublin 2
Online contact form of the data protection officer of Facebook: „https://de-de.facebook.com/help/contact/540977946302970/“.
The operators of the social media platforms are available to you as a central contact. However, you can also assert your rights with regard to the processing operations under joint responsibility vis-à-vis us. Insofar as you contact us, we will coordinate with the respective provider in order to answer your inquiry and ensure your data subject rights.

We have no influence on the data collection and use by the provider. Furthermore, it is not transparent for us which data Meta stores where and for how long, as well as to what extent Meta fulfills existing deletion obligations, which evaluations and links are made with the data and to whom the data is passed on. Whenever you are logged in with your respective social media account and visit our social media pages, the provider can assign this to your profile.

A joint controllership agreement in accordance with Article 26 GDPR has been concluded, which specifies, among other things, how the respective tasks and responsibilities for the processing of personal data are structured and who fulfills which data protection obligations.
ITSONIX operates the Facebook profile to point out its services and service offers and to interact with visitors of the social media platforms (hereinafter referred to as "users").
When using the Facebook profile of ITSONIX, personal data is processed. In the following, you will be informed about the type and scope of the data processing for which ITSONIX is responsible under data protection law in this context.

Information that you publish on the respective social media pages of ITSONIX (e.g. comments) or send via the respective messenger will be stored by the providers based on your usage relationship and can be removed there by you.
When you visit the social media pages of ITSONIX, Meta also uses certain usage data (e.g., whether you have "liked" or commented on certain amounts of ITSONIX) to provide ITSONIX with aggregated usage statistics (so-called "page insights"). Usage statistics do not allow any conclusion on the behavior of individual users, but only provide ITSONIX with an overview of the usage of its social media pages (e.g. which posts were clicked on particularly frequently). ITSONIX itself has no access to the personal data processed for the creation of the statistics. Which usage actions are logged by Meta on the social media platforms is solely determined by Meta and cannot be set up, changed or otherwise influenced by ITSONIX.

If the contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract or takes place within the framework of an existing contractual relationship, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
Your data will be deleted if your inquiry has been answered conclusively and the deletion does not conflict with any legal obligations to retain data, such as in the case of any subsequent contract processing.
