It is a matter of course for us to respect your personal rights. This also applies to the handling of personal data when you visit and use this website. Therefore, we act in accordance with the appli­cable data pro­tec­tion law. In the following, you will learn how we handle your personal data and, in par­ti­cular, which data we process for which purposes and what rights you are entitled to.

Privacy policy according to EU-GDPR

1 Scope of appli­ca­tion

1.1 This privacy policy applies to the use of the websites offered by Insiders Tech­no­lo­gies GmbH, which you can reach at www.insiders-technologies.de and www.insiders-technologies.com (her­ein­after referred to as “Insiders websites”). Insofar as we provide expl­ana­tions regarding our online presences in social networks in this data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­tion, these online presences are also covered by the scope of appli­ca­tion. This data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­tion does not apply to other websites of Insiders Tech­no­lo­gies GmbH or to the websites of other service providers to which the Insiders websites refer via a link.

1.2 The respon­sible party within the meaning of the EU General Data Pro­tec­tion Regu­la­tion (GDPR) is:

2 Personal data

Personal data is any infor­ma­tion relating to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fiable natural person. The basic personal data is your name. In addition, however, your gender, date of birth, address, occu­pa­tion, e‑mail address and IP address, for example, are also con­sidered personal data. Non-personal data, on the other hand, is data with which the deter­mi­na­tion of your actual identity is impos­sible or at least requires con­siderable effort. This includes, for example, the afo­re­men­tioned infor­ma­tion if we receive it anony­mously or under a pseudonym and therefore cannot assign it to a natural person

3 Provision of personal data

3.1 The provision of personal data is neither legally nor con­trac­tually required for the use of the Insiders websites, nor is it necessary for the con­clu­sion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide any personal data. However, you will not be able to visit the Insiders websites without the trans­mis­sion of your IP address.

3.2. Cont­ac­ting us via our contact form, applying via our appli­ca­tion form for an adver­tised position or sub­mit­ting an unso­li­cited appli­ca­tion requires the provision or coll­ec­tion of the data described in more detail in sections 5 and 6. If you do not provide us with this data, you will not be able to use the contact form or apply online with us.

4 Pro­ces­sing of personal data

4.1 We auto­ma­ti­cally collect and record the following data on each of your visits to the Insiders websites:

  • country of origin
  • reques­ting domain
  • web browser used
  • operating system used
  • message about suc­cessful and unsuc­cessful retrieval
  • entry and exit pages
  • amount of data trans­ferred
  • date and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file
  • IP address of the reques­ting computer

This data is stored on our web server in log files by default. The storage period for the IP address is one week, after which it is auto­ma­ti­cally deleted.

4.2 Otherwise, we will only process your personal data if you vol­un­t­a­rily provide it to us and this is permitted by law or you have consented. We use the personal data provided by you exclu­si­vely for the purposes com­mu­ni­cated in this data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­tion or expressly agreed with you.

4.3 We com­mis­sion various service providers to support us in the provision, operation and main­ten­ance of our IT systems, including the Insiders websites. These include, for example, hardware and software suppliers, hosting providers or data centers. If such service providers act on our behalf, it is possible that they may have access to your personal data as reci­pi­ents. However, these service providers are then also con­trac­tually obligated to comply with data pro­tec­tion via a so-called order pro­ces­sing agreement; the legal pro­vi­sions on data pro­tec­tion also apply to our service providers anyway.

4.4 Your personal data will not be passed on, sold or otherwise trans­ferred to third parties. Something else only applies if this is necessary for the pro­ces­sing of the com­mu­ni­cated or agreed purposes and is permitted under appli­cable data pro­tec­tion law without consent, you have expressly consented or we are legally obliged to do so. Section 4.3 remains unaf­fected, of course, and applies inde­pendently of this Section 4.4.

4.5 The personal data provided by you on the Insiders Websites or collected by us will not be used for automated decision-making.

5 Contact Form

5.1 If you contact us via the contact form we will process your message with your provided contact details may be processed by us for the purpose of replying and cont­ac­ting you. You can also provide a pseudonym (i.e. an invented name) as your name. Your consent and our legi­ti­mate interest in being able to contact users of the Insiders websites elec­tro­ni­cally form the legal basis for the pro­ces­sing (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and f GDPR).

5.2 We will only process the data you provide via the contact form in order to process your message and reply to you. As long as we have received your contact data, which you provide via the contact form, only for pro­ces­sing, cont­ac­ting and respon­ding to your message, we will not use this personal data for any other purpose. Apart from cases in which we are legally obliged to do so, we also do not pass on your contact data to third parties in this case.

5.3 Six (6) months after sending the response, we will delete the data you submitted via the contact form, unless we are required by law to retain it for a longer period or we still need your personal data to implement or process an existing con­trac­tual rela­ti­onship or for veri­fi­ca­tion purposes. In such cases, we will delete the relevant data after the statutory retention period has expired or as soon as we no longer need the data to implement or process an existing con­trac­tual rela­ti­onship or for veri­fi­ca­tion purposes.

6 Appli­ca­tion

6.1 If you contact us via job adver­ti­se­ments or for the purpose of a spe­cu­la­tive appli­ca­tion and send us appli­ca­tion documents via our appli­ca­tion form or by e‑mail, you agree that we may process your contact and appli­ca­tion data, including any CV you may have sent us and other appli­ca­tion documents, for the purpose of pro­ces­sing your appli­ca­tion and cont­ac­ting you. This also includes the use of your name to create name badges for our Talents Day, if you par­ti­ci­pate. The imple­men­ta­tion of pre-con­trac­tual measures and our legi­ti­mate interest in receiving appli­ca­tions and cont­ac­ting appli­cants form the legal basis for the pro­ces­sing (Art. 6 (1) lit. b and f GDPR).

6.2 We will only process the contact and appli­ca­tion data you have provided to us in order to process your appli­ca­tion and respond to you. As long as we have received your contact and appli­ca­tion data that you have provided to us via your appli­ca­tion only for the purpose of pro­ces­sing, cont­ac­ting and respon­ding to your appli­ca­tion, we will not use this personal data for any other purpose. Apart from cases in which we are legally obliged to do so, we also do not pass on your contact and appli­ca­tion data to third parties in this case.

6.3 If your appli­ca­tion is suc­cessful and you enter into an employ­ment rela­ti­onship with us, we will transfer the contact and appli­ca­tion data you provided with your appli­ca­tion to our personnel manage­ment and your personnel file. In the event of a rejection, we will delete your contact and appli­ca­tion data six (6) months after sending the rejection to you, unless we are legally obligated to store the data for a longer period of time, you consent to a longer storage period (in which case we will ask you for this consent sepa­ra­tely), or we still need your contact and appli­ca­tion data to implement or process an existing con­trac­tual rela­ti­onship or for veri­fi­ca­tion purposes. In such cases, we will delete the relevant data after expiry of the statutory retention period or the period agreed with you as part of the consent or as soon as we no longer need the data for the imple­men­ta­tion or pro­ces­sing of an existing con­trac­tual rela­ti­onship or for veri­fi­ca­tion purposes.

7 Revo­ca­tion of consent

7.1 Insofar as the pro­ces­sing of your personal data is based on your consent (e.g. with regard to the use of cookies), you have the pos­si­bi­lity at any time to revoke your consent to the pro­ces­sing of your personal data for the future within the framework of the legal pro­vi­sions. You can find out how to revoke cookie consent in section 10 below. Otherwise, please contact the office listed in section 18 below regarding revo­ca­tion.

7.2 We would like to point out that the pro­ces­sing of your personal data, which we have carried out on the basis of your granted consent until your revo­ca­tion, is not affected by the revo­ca­tion and remains lawful.

8 Right of access, rec­ti­fi­ca­tion, can­cel­la­tion, rest­ric­tion of pro­ces­sing, oppo­si­tion and trans­fera­bi­lity of data

8.1 Within the framework of the legal pro­vi­sions, you have the right to receive infor­ma­tion from us about your personal data processed by us, as well as to assert the right to rec­ti­fi­ca­tion, deletion, rest­ric­tion of pro­ces­sing, objection to pro­ces­sing and data por­ta­bi­lity. For the exact con­di­tions under which you are entitled to the afo­re­men­tioned rights, please refer to Articles 15 to 21 GDPR and Sections 34, 35 and 37 of the German Federal Data Pro­tec­tion Act (BDSG). If you wish to exercise one or more of the afo­re­men­tioned rights, please also contact the persons indicated in Section 19.

8.2 We would like to draw your attention sepa­ra­tely to your right of objection in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR. According to this provision, you have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your par­ti­cular situation, to the pro­ces­sing of your data which we carry out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR (data pro­ces­sing on the basis of a balance of interests). This also applies to profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 GDPR; however, we do not carry out profiling with your data. If you object, we will no longer process your data unless we can demons­trate com­pel­ling legi­ti­mate grounds for the pro­ces­sing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the pro­ces­sing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

9 Right of appeal

Within the framework of the legal pro­vi­sions, you have the right to contact a super­vi­sory authority with a complaint regarding data pro­tec­tion. The competent authority for us is the State Com­mis­sioner for Data Pro­tec­tion and Freedom of Infor­ma­tion of Rhineland-Pala­ti­nate, which you can reach together with the super­vi­sory authority via the website https://www.datenschutz.rlp.de/de/startseite/.

10 Use of cookies

10.1 On the Insiders websites we use so-called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your end device (PC, smart­phone, tablet, etc.). Some of the cookies we use are deleted from your drive (hard drive, solid-state disk, flash memory, etc.) at the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your terminal device and allow us to recognize your terminal device on your next visit (so-called per­sis­tent cookies). We also use cookies from third-party providers that allow them to process personal data from you and possibly merge the infor­ma­tion obtained with other data that these third-party providers have already stored about you or collected from you during your use of the third-party services.

10.2 Details about the cookies used on the Insiders websites and about setting options, consent and revo­ca­tion of consent can be found in the Cookie Settings .

10.3 If you click on one of the social media buttons available on the Insiders websites, the website of the social network linked to it will open. From there, addi­tional cookies may be stored on your end device. These cookies are beyond our sphere of influence. The respec­tive provider alone is respon­sible for the data pro­tec­tion-compliant behavior of such cookies.

10.4 The content of the cookies is encrypted (exception: cookieconsent_dismissed) to prevent third parties from gaining unaut­ho­rized access to the data contained therein.

10.5 The legal basis for our use of essential cookies is our legi­ti­mate interest in designing our web presence on the Insiders websites to meet our needs (Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR). For all other cookies, we obtain your consent, which can be revoked at any time, before setting them (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

10.6 In our Cookie Settings as well as in the security settings of your browser, you can view and delete the stored cookies at any time and restrict or prohibit the accep­tance of cookies.

10.7 When using third-party services on the Insiders websites (e.g. YouTube videos) or when you click on a link, third-party cookies may be used without our explicit warning. In the security settings of your browser, you can also view and delete these stored cookies at any time, as well as restrict or prohibit the accep­tance of cookies.

11 Use of matomo

11.1 As described in more detail in sections 11.2 ff. below, we use the “Matomo” software (www.matomo.org) of the provider InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wel­lington, New Zealand on this website. We host Matomo ourselves. The software sets cookies (text files) on your end device (computer, smart­phone, etc.), with which your browser can be reco­gnized. If subpages of our website are called up, the following data is stored:

  • the user’s IP address, shortened by the last two bytes (anony­mized)
  • the sub-page called up and the time of the call-up
  • the page from which the user accessed our website (referrer)
  • which browser with which plugins, which operating system and which screen reso­lu­tion is used
  • the time spent on the website
  • the pages that are accessed from the sub-page called up

11.2 The data collected with Matomo is stored on our own servers. It is not passed on to third parties. The data is deleted when it is no longer needed for our purposes (see section 11.4 below), but at the latest after 13 months. The legal basis on which we process personal data using Matomo is your consent pursuant to Section 25 (1) TTDSG (Tele­com­mu­ni­ca­tions Telemedia Data Pro­tec­tion Act).

11.3 You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appro­priate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full func­tion­a­lity of this Insiders website.

You can activate the “Do-not-track” setting in your browser. Our Matomo system is con­fi­gured to respect this setting.
You can create a so-called opt-out cookie with a mouse click below, which is valid for two years. It has the effect that Matomo will not register your further visits. Note, however, that the opt-out cookie will be deleted if you delete all cookies.
Create Opt-Out-Cookie

11.4 We need the data to analyze the surfing behavior of users and to obtain infor­ma­tion about the use of the indi­vi­dual com­pon­ents of the website. This enables us to con­ti­nuously optimize the website and its user-fri­end­li­ness. These purposes are our legi­ti­mate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, so that the pro­ces­sing of the data is also per­mis­sible for this reason. By anony­mi­zing the IP address, we take into account the interest of users in the pro­tec­tion of personal data. The data will never be used to per­so­nally identify the user of the website and will not be merged with other data.

12 Use of Social media links

We display social media links of the following social networks on the Insiders websites:

This is a link to our company presence in the cor­re­spon­ding social network; the link does not contain any further functions (unlike the Like button of Facebook, for example). When you click on a social media button on the Insiders websites, only the cor­re­spon­ding linked website opens.

13 Use of Social media Plug-ins

13.1 We use social media plug-ins on the Insiders websites, but they are not activated by them­selves. Instead of using the social media plug-ins directly, we display social media buttons for the following social networks on the Insiders websites without acti­vating the asso­ciated social media plug-ins:

Acti­va­tion of the functions of the social media plug-ins only takes place when you trigger the acti­va­tion by actively clicking on them. You can find more detailed expl­ana­tions of the social media buttons from Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter in section 13.3.

13.2 The legal basis for our use of social media plugins is our legi­ti­mate interest in providing users of the Insiders websites with functions with which they can share content found on our website with other users, using the social networks with which they have set up a user account and which they therefore also otherwise use (Art. 6 (1) f GDPR).

13.3 To increase data pro­tec­tion, we do not use the social media plug-ins mentioned in section 13.1 directly, but use the so-called sharing solution Monarch for this purpose. (https://www.elegantthemes.com/plugins/monarch/) for this purpose. When you visit the Insiders websites, the use of the Shariff solution initially means that no personal data is passed on to the providers of these plug-ins. An embedded script retrieves how often the respec­tive page has already been shared. Initially, only the IP address of our server is trans­mitted. Our social buttons only establish direct contact between you as a user of the Insiders websites and the respec­tive social network when you actively click on the social button. If you are already logged in to a social network, contact is estab­lished with LinkedIn without another window opening. If you activate the respec­tive plug-in via the social button, personal data is auto­ma­ti­cally trans­mitted to the respec­tive plug-in provider and stored there, i.e. at the respec­tive provider in the USA. We have no influence on the data collected and data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­tions, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data coll­ec­tion, the purposes and the storage periods. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the respec­tive logo. To the best of our knowledge, the plug-in providers store this data in most cases as usage profiles and use it for purposes of adver­ti­sing, market research or demand-oriented design of their website. Such an eva­lua­tion is carried out in par­ti­cular for the display of needs-based adver­ti­sing and to inform other users of the social network about your acti­vi­ties on the Insiders websites; this also applies to users of the respec­tive social network who are not logged in. You can prevent a linkage of your mem­ber­ship data, which is available at the respec­tive social network, with the data that the social network collects about you by means of the social media plug-in on the Insiders Websites by not acti­vating the social media button on the Insiders Websites while you are logged into the social network, but by logging out of the respec­tive social network before­hand.

13.4 Further infor­ma­tion on the purpose and scope of data coll­ec­tion and its pro­ces­sing by the plug-in provider can be found in the privacy state­ments of these providers on their websites. We are aware of the following websites in this regard:

The providers will also provide you with further infor­ma­tion on your rights in this regard and setting options for pro­tec­ting your privacy.

14 Facebook

With regard to our Facebook page, we are jointly respon­sible with Facebook Ireland Limited for the purposes of data pro­tec­tion (Art. 26 GDPR). To this end, we have concluded a joint respon­si­bi­lity agreement with Facebook Ireland Limited, which you can view here (https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum). According to this agreement, Facebook Ireland Limited has agreed, among other things, to assume primary respon­si­bi­lity for the pro­ces­sing of user data (so-called “Insights data”). Only Facebook Ireland Limited makes decisions regarding the pro­ces­sing of Insights data and imple­ments them. Facebook Ireland Limited decides, at its sole dis­cre­tion, how to fulfill its obli­ga­tions under the shared respon­si­bi­lity agreement it has entered into with us. Therefore, we cannot provide you with any further infor­ma­tion here about the coll­ec­tion of personal data on our Facebook Fan Page; Facebook Ireland Limited also assumes the legal infor­ma­tion obli­ga­tions. If you have questions about the pro­ces­sing of Insights data con­cer­ning you, Facebook Ireland Limited will answer them. Regard­less of this, you can assert your data subject rights both with Facebook Ireland Limited and with us.

15 Use of Leadinfo

We use the lead gene­ra­tion service Leadinfo from Leadinfo B.V., Rotterdam, Net­her­lands. This reco­gnizes visits by companies to our website based on IP addresses and shows us publicly available infor­ma­tion for this purpose, such as company names or addresses. Leadinfo places two first-party cookies that only give Insiders insight into behavior on the website. These cookies are not shared with other parties.

16 Google Maps

We link to Google Maps on our website. The link does not contain any further functions. If you click on the Google Maps button on the Insiders websites, only the cor­re­spon­ding linked website will open.

17 IT-Security

We take various technical and orga­niza­tional security measures to protect the integrity and con­fi­den­tia­lity of your personal data. To this end, your personal data is encrypted during trans­mis­sion using so-called Secure Socket Layer tech­no­logy (SSL). This means that the com­mu­ni­ca­tion between your computer and the servers of the Insiders websites takes place using a reco­gnized encryp­tion method, which is con­sidered secure in the current version. If your browser supports SSL, the trans­mis­sion of personal data is protected by this function. In this case, most browsers will indicate whether the security protocol is supported by dis­playing a short dialog box or a graphic icon. You can find more infor­ma­tion in the help function of your browser.

18 Data pro­tec­tion contact details

For all questions in con­nec­tion with and relating to our data pro­tec­tion and your data stored by us, please contact our data pro­tec­tion officer.
