3. General information and mandatory information



Data protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in line with the legal data protection regulations and this data protection statement.

When you use this website, various person-related data will be recorded. Person-related data are data through which you can be identified personally. The present data protection statement explains which data we record and what we use them for. It also explains how and for what purpose this takes place.

We should like to point out that the transmission of data in the internet (e.g. through e-mail communication) may reveal security gaps. It is not possible to exclude all such security gaps when protecting data from access via third parties.


Information regarding the responsible party

The party responsible for the data processing on this website is:

IntraKey technologies AG
Wiener Straße 114 - 116
D-01219 Dresden

Telephone: +49 351 31558 - 0
E-mail: info@intrakey.de

The responsible party is the natural or legal person who decides alone or jointly with others regarding the purpose and means of proces­sing personal data (e.g. name, e-mail address or similar).


Retention period

Unless some more specific retention period is listed within this data protection statement, your personal data will be stored by us until the purpose of the data processing has lapsed. If you wish to assert a justified request for deletion or to revoke permission for data proces­sing, we shall delete your data provided we have no other legally permissible grounds for storing your personal data (e.g retention periods relating to fiscal or commercial law); in the last-mentioned case the deletion will take place after the cessation of these grounds.


Legally required data protection representative

We have appointed a data protection representative for our company.

IntraKey technologies AG
Gerald Kettner
Wiener Straße 114 - 116

Telephone: +49 351 31558 - 122
E-mail: datenschutz@intrakey.de


Information regarding the transmission of data to the United States

On our website we also make use of tools by companies based in the United States of America. When these tools are activated, your per­sonal data can be transmitted to the servers of the companies concerned in the United States. We should like to point out that the United States are not a secure third country as defined by the data protection laws of the European Union. United States companies are required to reveal personal data to security authorities and you, as the party concerned, cannot take legal measures against this. It therefore cannot be excluded that United States authorities (e.g. intelligence agencies) may process and evaluate your data which is located on servers in the United States for surveillance purposes, and then store this data permanently. We have no influence over these processing activities.


Withdrawal of your agreement to data processing

Many data processing procedures are only possible with your express permission. You can withdraw permission that has previously been given at any time. The legality of the data processing which was carried out previous to this withdrawal is not affected by the withdrawal.


Right of objection to the recording of data in special cases and objection to direct advertising (Art. 21 DSGVO/ GDPR)

WHEN THE DATA PROCESSING TAKES PLACE ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 PARA. 1 LET. E OR F DSGVO/GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT AT ALL TIMES TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR REASONS WHICH RESULT FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUA­TION; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. YOU WILL FIND THE LEGAL BASIS FOR THE DATA PROCESSING IN THIS DATA PROTECTION STATEMENT. IF YOU SUBMIT AN OBJECTION WE SHALL CEASE TO PROCESS THE RELEVANT PERSONAL DATA IN YOUR CASE, UNLESS, WE CAN PROVE COMPELLING REASONS FOR THE PROCESSING WHICH ARE WORTHY OF PROTECTION, AND WHICH OVERRIDE YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES, OR THE PROCESSING SERVES THE ESTABLISHMENT, EXERCISE OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION ACCORDING TO ART. 21 PARA. 1 DSGVO/GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA ARE PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSES OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT AT ALL TIMES TO OB­JECT TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA RELATING TO YOUR PERSON FOR THE PURPOSES OF ADVERTISING OF THIS NATURE; THIS ALSO APPLIES IN THE CASE OF PROFILING, INASMUCH AS IT IS CARRIED OUT IN ASSOCIATION WITH SUCH DIRECT MAILING. IF YOU RAISE AN OBJECTION, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSES OF DIRECT MAI­LING (OBJECTION ACCORDING TO PARA. 21 SECTION 2 DSGVO/GDPR).


Right of complaint to the relevant supervisory authority

In the case of contraventions of the DSGVO/GDPR, the person affected has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, especially in the member state in which he or she normally resides, his or her place of work or the place where the purported contraven­tion took place. The right of complaint exists irrespective or any further legal redress according to administrative law or judicial action.


Right of data transferability

You have the right to have the data which we have automatically processed on the basis of your permission or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you personally or to a third party in an established, machine-readable format. Inasmuch as you demand the direct trans­mission of the data to another responsible party, this can only be effected if it is technically possible.


SSL- and/or TLS encryption

This website uses SSL- and/or TLS encryption for security reasons and in order to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as, for example, orders or enquiries which you send to us as website operators. You can recognise an encrypted link because the address line of your browser will change from "http://" to "https://" and because of the lock symbol in your browser heading.

When the SSL- and/or the TLS encryption has been activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.


Information, deletion and correction

Within the framework of the valid legal regulations you have the right at all times to receive information free of charge about your perso­nal data that are currently being stored, their origin and recipients as well as the purpose of the data processing. If appropriate you also have the right to have these data deleted or corrected. Please contact us at any time if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.


Right of limitation of processing

You have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data be restricted. Please contact us at any time on this subject. You have a right to demand that the processing be restricted in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the correctness of the personal data stored by us, we shall generally require some time in order to examine this claim. For the duration of the examination you have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
  • If the processing of your personal data took place /is taking place wrongfully, you can demand the restriction of the data processing in­stead of their deletion.
  • If we no longer require your personal data, but you require them in order to exercise, defend or assert your legal claims, you have the right demand the restriction of the data processing instead of their deletion.
  • If you have lodged an objection under Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO/GDPR, it will be necessary to weigh up your interests against ours. Until it has been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – apart from their storage – may only be processed with your per­mission or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal body or for reasons relating to the important public interests of the European Union or a member state.


Objection to mass advertising

The operators of the website hereby register their objection to the use of contact data published within the framework of the obligation to supply a masthead for the transmission of advertising and information material that have not been expressly requested. The operators of the website expressly reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of the receipt of advertising information which has not been reques­ted, for example in the form of spam e-mails.



4. Data recording on this website



Cookies

Our internet pages use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files and do not damage your terminal in any way. They are stored on your terminal either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies). Session cookies are deleted automatically at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them yourself or they are deleted automatically by your web browser.

In some cases cookies from third-party companies may be stored on your terminal when you visit our site (third-party cookies). These per­mit us or you to make use of certain services provided by the third-party company (e.g. cookies for the processing of payment services).

Cookies have a variety of functions. Many cookies are technically necessary because certain website functions would not function without them (e.g. the shopping basket function or the showing of videos). Other cookies serve to evaluate user behaviour or to show advertising.

Cookies which are necessary for the execution of the electronic communications process (necessary cookies), or for the provision of cer­tain functions which you require (functional cookies, e.g. for the shopping basket function), or for the optimization of the website (e.g. cookies for the measurement of the web audience), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 let. f DSGVO/GDPR, unless some other legal basis is quoted. The website operator has a justifiable interest in the storage of cookies to ensure the technically error-free and optimized provision of his services. Inasmuch as the permission to store cookies was requested, the storage of the relevant cookies will take place exclusively on the basis of this permission (Art. 6 para. 1 let. a DSGVO/GDPR). Your permission can be withdrawn at any time.

You can adjust your browser settings in such a way that you are informed about the placement of cookies and can permit cookies only on a single occasion; can permit the acceptance of cookies in certain situations; or can exclude their use in general. You can also activate the automatic deletion of the cookies when you close the browser. When the cookies are deactivated it is possible that the functionality of this website may be limited.

Inasmuch as cookies are placed by third-party companies or for the purposes of analysis, you will be specifically informed within the fra­mework of this data protection statement and if necessary your permission will be requested.

Compulsory statutory storage obligations remain unaffected.

The use of Usercentrics takes place in order to obtain the legally prescribed consent to the use of certain technologies. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 let. c DSGVO/GDPR.

Contract regarding job processing


We have concluded a job-processing contract with Usercentrics. This is a contract which is prescribed in the interests of data protection and which guarantees that Usercentrics will process the personal data of the visitors to our website only according to our instructions and in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO/GDPR).


Server log files

The website provider automatically records and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically trans­mits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system in use
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

These data are not combined with other data sources.

The recording of these data takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 let. f DSGVO/GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of his website. The server log files must be recorded for this purpose.


Contact form

If you send us an enquiry via the contact form, your information as listed in the contact form including your contact data as stated there will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in case any subsequent questions arise. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your permission.

The processing of these data will take place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 let. b DSGVO/GDPR, inasmuch as your enquiry is connected to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases the processing will rest on our justified interest in the effective processing of the enquiries directed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 let. f DSGVO/GDPR) or on your permission (Art. 6 para. 1 let. a DSGVO/GDPR) inasmuch as this was requested.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request that we delete them, withdraw your permission to store them or the purpose of the data storage has expired (e.g. after the processing of your enquiry has been completed). Compelling legal regula­tions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.


Enquiries via e-mail, telephone or telefax

If you contact us via e-mail, telephone or telefax, your enquiry including all the resulting personal data (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your permission.

The processing of these data will take place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 let. b DSGVO/GDPR, inasmuch as your enquiry is connected to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases the processing will rest on our justified interest in the effective processing of the enquiries directed to us (Art. 6 para. 1 let. f DSGVO/GDPR) or on your permission (Art. 6 para. 1 let. a DSGVO/GDPR) inasmuch as this was requested.

5. Social media



Social-media plug-ins with Shariff

On this website we use plug-ins for social media (e.g. XING, LinkedIN, WhatsApp, Telegram).

You can generally recognise the plug-ins by virtue of the relevant social-media logos. In order to guarantee the data protection on this website, we use these plug-ins only together with the so-called "Shariff" solution. This application prevents the plug-ins integrated into the website from transmitting data to the provider concerned as soon as a visitor enters the website for the first time.

A direct connection to the provider's server will be set up only if you activate the plug-in by clicking the relevant button to show your agreement. As soon as you activate the plug-in, the provider concerned will receive the information that you have visited this website using your IP address. If at the same time you are also logged into your social-media account (e.g. Facebook), the provider concerned will be able to connect your visit to this website with your user account.

Activating a plug-in represents agreement in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 let. a DSGVO/GDPR. You can withdraw this agreement with regard to the future at any time.



6. Analysis tools and advertising



Google Tag Manager

We make use of the Google Tag Manager. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The Google Tag Manager is a tool, with the help of which we can incorporate tracking or statistics tools and other technologies on our website. The Google Tag Manager itself does not create user profiles, nor does it store cookies or undertake any independent analyses. It serves only to manage and implement the tools it incorporates. However, the Google Tag Manager does record your IP address, which can also be transmitted to Google's parent company in the United States.

The use of the Google Tag Manager takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 let. f DSGVO/GDPR. The website operator has a justified inte­rest in the fast and uncomplicated incorporation and management of various tools on the website. Inasmuch as the corresponding agree­ment was requested, the processing will take place exclusively on the base of Art. 6 para. 1 let. a DSGVO/GDPR; permission can be with­drawn at any time.


Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Analytics permits the operator of the website to analyse the behaviour of the visitors to the website. This means that the website operator receives various user data such as, for example, when the page is called up, the length of stay, the operating systems in use and the origins of the user. If applicable, these data are summarised by Google in a profile which is allocated to the user concerned and/or his or her terminal.

Google Analytics uses technologies which permit the recognition of the user for the purposes of analysing user behaviour (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information recorded by Google regarding the use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there.

The use of this analysis tool takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 let. f DSGVO/GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in the analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise not only web services but also advertising. Inasmuch as the corresponding agreement was requested (e.g. permission to store cookies), the processing will take place exclusively on the base of Art. 6 para. 1 let. a DSGVO/GDPR; the permission can be withdrawn at any time.

The transmission of data to the United States is supported by the standard contract clauses of the EU Commission. You will find the details here:
https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

IP anonymisation


On this website we have activated the IP anonymisation function. This means that your IP address will be shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contractual states to the agreement regarding the European Economic Area before transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this website, in or­der to compile reports concerning website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with the use of the website and the use of the internet. Google will not combine the IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics with other data.

Browser plug-in


You can prevent the recording and processing of your data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link:
https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

You will find further information about the use of user data by Google Analytics in the Google data protection statement:
https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

Order processing


We have concluded a contract with Google with regard to order processing. We implement in full the rigorous terms of the German data protection authorities in our use of Google Analytics.

Storage duration


Data stored by Google on the user and event level, which are linked with cookies, user identifiers (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID), will be anonymised and/or deleted after 26 months. You will find details of this under the following link:
https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=de


Google Ads

The website operator uses Google Ads. Google Ads is an online advertising program by Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Ads permits us to transmit advertisements in the Google search engine or on the websites of third parties when the user enters certain search keywords into Google (keyword targeting). In addition, targeted advertisements can be transmitted by means of user data available to Google (e.g. location data and interests) (target group targeting). We as a website operator can evaluate these data quantita­tively, for example by analysing which search keywords led to the transmission of our advertisements, and how many advertisements led to corresponding clicks.

The use of Google Ads occurs on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 let. f DSGVO/GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in marketing his services and products as effectively as possible.

The transmission of data to the United States is supported by the standard contract clauses of the EU Commission. You will find the details here:
https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks and
https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

Google reCAPTCHA

On this website we use "Google reCAPTCHA" (hereafter referred to as "reCAPTCHA"). The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

reCAPTCHA is used to check whether the entering of data on this website (e.g. in a contact form) was carried out by a person or by an automated program. To do this reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the visitor to the website by means of certain characteristics. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the visitor enters the website. To carry out the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates certain informa­tion (e.g. IP address, length of stay of the visitor to the website and/or the mouse movements carried out by the user). The data recorded during the analysis are transmitted to Google.

The reCAPTCHA analyses are carried out entirely in the background. Visitors to the website will not be informed that an analysis is taking place.

9. eCommerce and payment providers



Processing of data (customer data and contract data)

We record, process and use personal data only to the extent that they are necessary for the justification, the drafting or changing of the content of the legal relationship (inventory data). This takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 let. b DSGVO/GDPR, which permits the pro­cessing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We record, process and use personal data (usage data) rela­ting to the utilisation of this website only to the extent necessary in order to enable the user to make use of the service, or for accounting purposes.

The customer data that have been recorded will be deleted after conclusion of the order or when the business relationship ceases. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.



10. Own services



Handling of applicant data

We offer you the opportunity to apply to us for a job (e.g. via e-mail, by post or via our online application form). You will find information below concerning the handling, purpose and use of your personal data which are recorded during the course of the application process. We confirm that the recording, processing and use of your data will take place in conformity with the currently valid data protection laws and all other legal regulations, and that your data will be treated as strictly confidential.

Extent and purpose of the recording of data


If you send us an application we shall process the relevant personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes made during the course of job interviews etc.), to the extent that this is necessary in order to come to a decision regarding the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-neu according to German law (initiation of an employ­ment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 let. b DSGVO/GDPR (general initiation of a contract) and – inasmuch as you have granted permission – Art. 6 Abs. 1 let. a DSGVO/GDPR. Your permission can be withdrawn at any time. Your personal data will only be transmitted within our compa­ny to those persons who are involved in the processing of your application.

Inasmuch as the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of § 26 BDSG-neu and Art. 6 para. 1 let. b DSGVO/GDPR for the purpose of establishing the employment relationship.

Duration of data storage


If we are unable to offer you a position, you decline the job offer we make or you withdraw your application, we reserve the right to store the data submitted by you on the basis of our justified interest (Art. 6 para. 1 let. f DSGVO) for up to 6 months following the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of application). Thereafter the data will be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed. The storage of the data serves in particular to provide evidence in the case of a legal dispute. Should it be clear that the data will be required after the grace period of 6 months has elapsed (e.g. because of a threatened or pending legal dispute), the deletion will only take place when there is no longer a reason to continue to preserve the data.

Inclusion in the pool of applicants


If we do not offer you a job, in some cases it may be possible to include you in our pool of applicants. If this is the case, all documents and details relating to your application will be transferred to the pool of applicants so that we can contact you if a suitable vacancy occurs.

Your inclusion in the pool of applicants will occur exclusively with your express permission (Art. 6 para. 1 let. a DSGVO/GDPR). Your gran­ting of such permission is voluntary and is not related to the ongoing application process. The person concerned can withdraw permission at any time. In this case the data will be deleted permanently from the pool of applicants provided that there are no legal reasons for sto­ring the data.

The data will be deleted permanently from the pool of applicants at the latest two years after receipt of permission.
