4.    Career

5.    Social media

We use online platforms to interact with potential or existing customers or applicants, to exchange information with interested parties and users or to advertise our services. In this respect there is a so-called joint responsibility (Art. 26 GD-PR) with regard to data protection. This includes the following providers:

platform provider Details on data protection
LinkedIn LinkedIn
LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Irland
https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy; https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out

Data that you directly share or publish via the online platforms and networks (e.g. via comment and chat functions) is processed by us as the responsible party in order to interact with you in this respect or to exchange information with you. In the course of this interaction, we may also receive statistical data from the platform operators regarding the use of our “channels”. This includes, for example, information about interactions, likes, comments or summarized information and statistics (e.g. IP address, origin of followers), which help us to learn something about the interactions with our site. The legal basis for data processing in our area of responsibility is Art. 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO.

However, the aforementioned provider(s) also process data on their own responsibility. We have no influence on data that is processed by the provider on his own responsibility according to his own terms of use and data protection. We would like to point out that when the above-mentioned providers are called up, further data (e.g. on your usage and “surfing behavior”) may be collected and, if necessary, transmitted to the provider. Please also note that in the case of interaction via the aforementioned media, data may also be processed outside the European Union. Furthermore, user data is generally processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, for example, user profiles can be created from the user behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The user profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. More detailed information on this can be found in the data protection information of the respective providers. If we receive personal data from you in connection with the use of the online platforms and networks, please address your concerns to us. Should you wish to assert any further rights against a particular provider, please contact the respective provider.

6.    Google Fonts

Our website uses fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you view a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display text and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our online offers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in the Google data protection declaration: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.

7.    Google Maps

We use on our website “Google Maps”, an online map service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4 (hereinafter referred to as: “Google”). This enables us to display interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to use the map function conveniently. The Google Maps map functions, respectively the Google Maps API (interface) are integrated on our website by means of a so-called “two-click solution”. This means that the map function is initially deactivated, and you must first activate the interface with one click (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DS-GVO). Only with a subsequent second click is the selected map displayed and possibly personal data transferred to Google. We will inform you about this process with an appropriate notice.

By using the map functions, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the IP address, date and time of the request, time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), content of the request (specific page), access status/HTTP status code, amount of data transferred in each case, website from which the request comes, browser, operating system and its interface, language and version of the browser software are also transferred. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. In this respect, Google acts as (jointly with us) responsible party (Art. 26 DS-GVO). You can find details on this at https://cloud.google.com/maps-platform/terms/maps-controller-terms.

You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right. Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing can be found in Google’s privacy policy, available at http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. There you will also find further information on your rights and settings to protect your privacy.

8.    Your rights

In addition, you have the right to correct, delete and restrict data processing, as well as the right to object to the processing of personal data at any time, or to revoke your consent to data processing at any time or to demand data transfer.

If you wish to exercise your right of objection, it is also sufficient to send an e-mail to privacy@bind-x.com.
