2. Special Information

2.1. Data processing

2.1.1. Scope of processing of personal data

In principle, we only process personal data of our users to the extent necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in cases where prior consent is not possible for actual reasons, or the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

2.1.2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as the legal basis.

In the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para.1 sentence 1 lit.b GDPR is the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary to carry out precontractual measures.

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit.c GDPR is the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit.d DG-GVO is the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the former interests, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR is the legal basis for processing.

2.1.3. Data deletion and storage period

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage can also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws, or other regulations to which the controller is a subject. A blocking or deletion of the data also takes place if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.

2.2. Provision of the websites and creation of log files

2.2.1. Server log files

You can visit our websites without providing any personal information.
However, the provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  1. Browser type and browser version
  2. Operating system used
  3. Referrer URL
  4. Host name of the accessing computer
  5. Time of the server request
  6. IP address

This data will not be merged with other data sources.

2.2.2. Legal basis for data processing

The processing takes place in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR based on our legitimate interest to improve the stability and functionality of our website. The data will not be passed on or will be used otherwise. However, we reserve the right to subsequently check the server log files if there are concrete indications of illegal use.

2.2.3. Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The storage log files take place to ensure the functionality of the website in addition, the data serves us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.

2.2.4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed according to the purpose of its collection. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

In the case of storage of the data in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

2.2.5. Possibility of objection and elimination

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Therefore, there is no possibility to object for the user.

Cookies that are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process (necessary cookies) or to provide certain functions requested by you (functional cookies), to optimize the website or for marketing purposes are processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services.

Within our online offer, we use content or service offers of third-party providers via plugins or tools based on our legitimate interests (i.e., interest in the optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art.6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR) or consents granted by you (within the meaning of Art. 6 para 1 lit. a GDPR) to integrate their content and services, such as fonts or languages.

We also use cookies or other services from service providers who are based outside the EU. Regarding the associated risks, please refer to the notes under the section Third-country transfer.

We use:

2.3.1. Cookie consent with Borlabs Cookie

Our website uses Borlabs Cookie Consent technology to obtain your consent to the storage of certain cookies in your browser and to document them in accordance with data protection regulations. Provider of this technology is Borlabs – Benjamin A. Bornschein, Georg Wilhelm Str. 17, 21107 Hamburg (hereinafter Borlabs).

When you enter our website, a Borlabs cookie is stored in your browser, in which the consents you have given, or the revocation of these consents are stored. This data will not be passed on to the provider of Borlabs Cookie.

The collected data will be stored for one year and then deleted. Details on the data processing of Borlabs Cookie can be found at https://de.borlabs.io/kb/welche-daten-speichert-borlabs-cookie/

Borlabs cookie consent technology is used to obtain the legally required consent for the use of cookies. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c GDPR.

2.3.2. WPML

This website uses the WPML voice plugin from OnTheGoSystems Limited, 22/F 3 Lockhart Road, Wanchai, Hong Kong to offer a German and English language version of the website. WPML uses cookies to determine the current language of the visitor, the last visited language and the language of the users who have logged in. Information on the cookies used can be found at https://wpml.org/documentation/support/browser-cookies-stored-wpml.

2.3.3. Google Maps

This site uses the map service Google Maps.

Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps to visually represent geographical information.

The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

By using Google Maps, information about the use of this website, including your IP address and the (start) address entered as part of the route planner function and possibly other personal data may be transmitted to the USA.

Through a two-click solution via “Borlabs cookie”, we ensure that no data is transferred from our website to Google Maps when you merely call up our page. However, as soon as you call up the map via the “Load map” function, you leave our site and use Google Maps.

We have no influence on the scope, further processing and use of the data collected by Google in this way and therefore cannot accept any responsibility for this.

If you give your consent to the use of Google Maps, the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

More information on the handling of user data can be found in Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

We expressly point out that a transfer to the USA currently takes place without the existence of an adequacy decision and without guarantees and thus, in the opinion of the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for the transfer of data to the USA. There are corresponding risks from access to the data by US authorities.

2.3.4. YouTube

We implement videos of the video portal “YouTube” of the company Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA on our internet pages via a two-click solution.

The implementation is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user’s terminal device) within the meaning of the TTDSG. You give us your consent, which you can revoke at any time with future effect by deselecting “external media” in the cookie settings on our site. You can also change your consent at any time by clicking on the “Privacy” button in the footer of our page/”Cookie settings” and thus revoke it for the future.

The purpose of the processing is to provide a comprehensive and professional online offer with smooth integration of the videos on an appealing website.

We use the plugin “Content-Blocker” from Borlabs Cookie.

This means that through the functions of Borlabs Cookies, on the one hand, cookies are set first when the user has given consent and, on the other hand, that no information/data from website visitors is collected and stored by YouTube unless they play the video. In doing so, we also use the extended data protection mode provided by YouTube. According to Google’s information, in “extended data protection mode” your data – in particular which of our web pages you have visited, as well as device-specific information including the IP address – is only transmitted to the YouTube server in the USA when you watch the video. By clicking on the video, you consent to this transmission.

When activating the first video via YouTube on our site, you have the option to permanently unblock YouTube by setting a check mark, if you have not already done so via the cookie banner. However, you can also decide individually for each video whether you want to give consent for the use of YouTube for this. Via “Privacy” (in the footer of the website) and “Change cookie settings” you can revoke this functionality.

We store and delete cookie consent setting data only to the extent set forth in Section 2.3.1. Beyond that, we do not store any data from you when loading the video(s).

For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by the provider Google, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the privacy policy of Google https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

If you are logged into your YouTube account when you activate a YouTube video, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

We expressly point out that currently a transfer to the USA takes place without the existence of an adequacy decision and without guarantees and thus, in the opinion of the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for the transfer of data to the USA. There are corresponding risks from access to the data by US authorities.

2.3.5. Vimeo

We also use videos from the company Vimeo on our website via a two-click solution. The video portal is operated by Vimeo LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA (“Vimeo”).

The implementation is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user’s terminal device as defined by the TTDSG. You give us your consent, which you can revoke at any time with future effect by deselecting “external media” in the cookie settings on our site. You can also change your consent at any time by clicking on the “Privacy” button in the footer of our page/”Cookie settings” and thus revoke it for the future.

The purpose of the processing is to provide a comprehensive and professional online offer with smooth integration of the videos on an appealing website.

We use the plugin “content blocker” from Borlabs Cookie.

This means that through the functions of Borlabs Cookies, on the one hand, cookies are set first when the user has given consent and, on the other hand, that no information/data of website visitors is collected and stored by Vimeo unless they play the video. When clicking on “Load Video”, personal data of the user such as the IP address, contact data, data on user behavior, information about your device are transmitted to Vimeo. Further data is collected by Vimeo when the user starts the video and is logged in as a registered member of Vimeo. This also links the actions on our website directly to the Vimeo account. This can be prevented if the user logs out of Vimeo before starting the video.

When activating the first video via Vimeo on our site, you have the option to permanently unblock Vimeo by setting a check mark, if you have not already done so via the cookie banner. However, you can also decide individually for each video whether you want to give consent for the use of Vimeo for this. Via “Privacy” (in the footer of the website) and “Change cookie settings” you can revoke this functionality.

We store and delete cookie consent setting data only to the extent set forth in Section 2.3.1. Beyond that, we do not store any data from you when loading the video(s).

For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the provider Vimeo, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to the data protection information of Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/privacy and on the use of cookies at https://vimeo.com/cookie_policy.

For example, the tracking tool Google Analytics is automatically integrated into videos from Vimeo. We have no influence on the tracking settings and the analysis results collected via this and cannot view them. To prevent the setting of Google Analytics tracking cookies, you can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software.

We expressly point out that a transfer to the USA currently takes place without the existence of an adequacy decision and without guarantees and thus, in the opinion of the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for the transfer of data to the USA. There are corresponding risks from access to the data by US authorities.

Consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future. Checking the box for inclusion in the talent pool is optional and has no influence on your original application.

If the data may be necessary for legal prosecution after completion of the application process, data processing may take place in accordance with Art. 6 GDPR, in particular for the exercise of legitimate interests according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our interest then exists in asserting or defending claims.

2.7.2.1. Purpose of data processing

The data processing is carried out for the purpose of initiating an employment relationship.

We process the data you have sent us in connection with your application for filling positions within our company. Your data will only be forwarded to the persons and specialist departments responsible for the application process. Any further use or disclosure of your application data to third parties does not take place.

The application data may be processed for statistical purposes (e. g. Reporting). It is not possible to draw conclusions about individual persons

2.7.2.2. Duration of storage

Your application data will be deleted six months after completion of the application process. This does not apply if statutory provisions prevent deletion, if further storage is necessary for the purpose of providing evidence or if you have consented to a longer storage.

If you agree to the storage of your application data beyond the current vacancy, we will continue to store your application data for future vacancies. In this case, we will delete your data after 24 months.

2.7.2.3. Place of data processing

The processing of your data takes place in Germany and in a member state of the European Union (Ireland).

2.7.2.4. Cookies on the HRworks job portal server

As part of the applicant management function in HRworks, three essential cookies are set when using the function on the job portal server.

The cookie “HrwJobApplicationmanagementSession” represents the session of the person on the job portal. This is necessary for operation, as you can therefore distinguish the users of the session.

In addition, there are two AWS cookies (“AWSALB” and “AWSALBCORS”), which are needed on the one hand to correctly control the behavior or to get to the right instance. Furthermore, they are necessary for the upload of the application documents, so that this process can be guaranteed smoothly for applicants.

The cookies are set and received by AWS and only process the user’s IP address within the session. AWS is the recipient of the data. For more information on the privacy policy of the HRworks data processor, please visit: https://d1.awsstatic.com/legal/privacypolicy/AWS_Privacy_Notice__German_Translation_2022-03-08.pdf

2.7.2.5. Possibility of objection and removal

According to Art. 21 para. 1 GDRP, the data processing can be objected to for reasons relating to the particular situation of the data subject. The objection can be made informally and must be addressed to:

axytos GmbH, Pittlerstr. 47, 63225 Langen or by email to info@axytos.com.

2.7.3. Rights of the data subject

For more information, see “General Information” in section 1.3.

3. E-Mail-Newsletter

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on our website, we need an e-mail address from you, as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected or only collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for the purpose of sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties – except for the purpose mentioned below.

The newsletter is sent as part of an ordered processing by our service provider “Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Str. 126, 10179 Berlin”, to whom we pass on your e-mail address, surname and first name exclusively for this purpose.

The data collected as part of the newsletter can be processed for statistical purposes. It is not possible to draw conclusions about individual persons.

As part of the verification of your newsletter order, we carry out a double opt-in procedure via the WordPress Premium Plugin Contact Form 7 Double Opt-In. No cookies are set and no data is transmitted to third parties.

We store the following data as part of the double opt-in procedure:

Registration date and time
Registration IP
Confirmation date and time
Confirmation IP
E-mail address

Our newsletter is usually sent every two weeks. In addition, we send out special newsletters at irregular intervals, as far as we would like to inform you about special topics deviating from our regular newsletter.

The processing of the data entered into the newsletter registration form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter or by sending an e-mail to info@axytos.com. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you have stored with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from the newsletter distribution list immediately after unsubscribing from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.

After you unsubscribe from the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address will be blacklisted to prevent future mailings. We proceed in the same way with e-mail addresses to which the newsletter cannot be delivered (hard bounces).

The blacklist data will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in compliance with the legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR). The storage in blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.

4. Social media appearances

We maintain publicly accessible profiles in social networks. Your personal data will be processed by us when you communicate with us via the above-mentioned social media platforms. The social networks we use in detail can be found below.

When you visit our website, the buttons of these social plug-ins are deactivated by default. i.e., we do not send any data to the respective social networks without your intervention. Before you can use these buttons, you must activate them with your click.

Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. can usually comprehensively analyze your user behavior if you use their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g., like buttons or advertising banners). Visiting our social media presence triggers numerous data protection relevant processing operations. In detail:

If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data collection takes place, for example, via cookies that are stored on your device or by collecting your IP address.

By collecting data in this way, the operators of the social media portal can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, interest-based advertising can be displayed to you inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are logged in. Please also note that we cannot trace all processing processes on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, further processing operations may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals.

We have limited influence on the processing of your personal data carried out by the platform operators. At the points where we can influence, we work towards the data protection complaint handling by the operator of the social media platform within the scope of the possibilities available to us. In many places, however, we cannot influence the data processing by the operator of the social media platform and do not know exactly what data processes is and to what extent. This also applies to functionalities such as the “like” button (or comparable designation) as well as functions that share content and other functionalities of the respective social media provider, which it makes available for use in connection with texts/offers of axytos. Information on the processing carried out by the operators can be found at any time in the data protection information of the respective platform operators.

Legal basis

Our social media presence should ensure the widest possible presence on the internet. The legal basis is our legitimate interest in carrying out public relations and communication of our company with you in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal bases to be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g., consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR).

Responsible and assertion of rights

If you use one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible for the data processing operations triggered during this visit together with the operator of the social media platform. In principle, you can exercise your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both against us and against the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. against Facebook) assert.

Please note that despite the joint reasonability with the social media portal operators, we do not have a full influence on the data processing processes of the social media portals. Our possibilities depend significantly on the company policy of the respective provider.

Data deletion and storage period

The data collected directly by us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for their storage no longer applies, you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies. Saved cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions – retention periods – remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage period of your data stored by the operators of the social networks for their own purposes. For details, please directly contact the operators of the social networks (e.g. in their data protection information, see below).

Recipient and place of processing

We do not pass on your personal data collected in the context of the use of the social media pages to third parties and we do not process it outside Germany. However, please note that the data may be passed on by the operators of the social media platforms.

5. Third country transfer

Here we inform you about the processing of personal data concerning you in third countries without an adequacy decision.

axytos uses service providers. Some of them use servers in third countries, i.e. outside the EU or the EEA. This includes the USA. The associated transfer of personal data must be permissible pursuant to Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. The ECJ ruled in July 2020 that the EU-USA Privacy Shield Agreement can no longer be used to transfer personal data to the USA. This means that the sectoral adequacy decision is thus cancelled.

axytos agrees with service providers who process personal data in an unsafe third country on the standard data protection clauses issued by the EU Commission, which continue to apply. If possible, we also agree on additional guarantees to ensure that sufficient data protection is guaranteed in the USA or other third countries.

Nevertheless, it may happen that despite all contractual and technical measures, the level of data protection in the third country does not correspond to that in the EU. In these cases, we ask you, if necessary, in the context of cookie consent, in (contact) forms or in other registrations and applications in accordance with Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a GDPR for the transfer of your personal data to a third country. This applies in particular to the transfer of data to the USA. In the USA, US-authorities and intelligence services may have access rights and opportunities to personal data without us as a data exporter or you as a data subject aware of this and without sufficient legal means at your disposal to prevent this or to take action against such access.

In this declaration you will find information about all service providers from third countries that we use.

6. Changes to this data protection notice

axytos GmbH reserves the right to update this data protection declaration at any time if necessary to adapt to technical developments or in connection with the offer of new services or products.
