Privacy Policy

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of particular importance to Education4Industry GmbH. Informational use of the Education4Industry GmbH’s website (hereinafter referred to as “controller or data controller”, “we”, or “us”) is generally possible without providing any personal data. However, if a user of the website (II.) (hereinafter referred to as “data subject”) would like to use special services of our company via our website, processing of personal data may be required. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will obtain the consent of the data subject.

Starting from 25.05.2018, the processing of personal data, such as the name, address, email address, or telephone number of a data subject, will always take place in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and at any time in accordance with the country-specific data protection provisions that apply to the controller (currently the Federal Data Protection Act (hereinafter referred to as “BDSG”).

Personal data, such as the name, address, email address, or telephone number of a data subject, will be processed in accordance with the country-specific data protection provisions that apply to the controller (currently the Federal Data Protection Act (hereinafter referred to as “BDSG”); and starting from 25.05.2018 in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation.

The controller has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed via the website. However, any Internet-based data transfers may be subject to security vulnerabilities, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each data subject is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, such as by telephone.

Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, whereabouts or relocation of that natural person.

1.6 Pseudonymization

Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures.

1.7 Controller or data controller

The controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or national law, provision may be made for the controller or for the specific criteria for his or her designation in accordance with Union or national law.

7. Google Analytics services that use cookies

7.1 Type, scope, and purposes of data processing

7.1.1 Data protection regulations for the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

7.1.1.1 The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on the website https://www.about.university4industry.com/. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, storage, and analysis of data on the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data about which website a data subject has come from (referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed, or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. Web analysis is used to optimize a website and to analyze the cost-benefit of Internet advertising.

7.1.1.2 The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc. (hereinafter “Google”), 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

7.1.1.3 The controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the data subject’s Internet connection is shortened by Google and anonymized if access to our Internet pages is from a member state of the European Union or from another state in the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EAA).

7.1.1.4 Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. By setting the cookie, Google will be able to analyze the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of our website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, is accessed, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Google receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.

7.1.1.5 The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the time of access, the place from which access originated, and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.

7.1.1.6 The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

7.1.1.7 Furthermore, the data subject has the possibility to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website as well as the processing of this data by Google and to prevent such data. To do this, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on from https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered a contradiction by Google. If the information technology (IT) system of the data subject is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later time, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person with access to the data subject’s IT system, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

7.1.1.8 Further information and Google’s applicable privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics this link.

7.1.2 Privacy Policy on the Use and Use of Google AdWords

7.1.2.1 The data controller has integrated Google AdWords on https://www.about.university4industry.com. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to display ads in Google’s search engine results and the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to specify pre-defined keywords that will display an ad in Google’s search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed to topic-relevant web pages by means of an automatic algorithm and in accordance with the previously defined keywords.

7.1.2.2 The operating company of the Google AdWords service is Google

7.1.2.3 The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying advertisements relevant to our interests on the websites of third party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertising on our website.

7.1.2.4 If a data subject reaches our website via a Google ad, a conversion cookie is stored by Google on the data subject’s information technology system. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain subpages on our website have been accessed. The conversion cookie allows us and Google to understand whether a data subject who has reached our website via an AdWords ad has generated sales, i.e., whether he or she has completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.

7.1.2.5 The data and information collected using the conversion cookie is used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are used by us to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e., to determine the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could be used to identify the data subject.

7.1.2.6 The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the data subject. Accordingly, each time our website is visited, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

7.1.2.7 The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

7.1.2.8 Furthermore, the data subject can object to the interest-based advertising by Google. To do so, the data subject must access the link www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the Internet browsers he or she uses and adjust the desired settings there.

7.1.2.9 Further information and Google’s applicable privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

7.2 Legal basis and storage period

7.2.1 From 25 May, 2018, the legal basis for the processing of the data subject’s personal data in connection with web analytics services is Article 6 (1) sentence 1, letters a, b and f of the European Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679. If we process your personal data on the basis of Article 6 (1) sentence 1, letter f, this is based on the legitimate interest in designing our website in a user-oriented manner and in placing user-related advertising.

7.2.2 The data collected via cookies will be stored by us for as long as necessary to provide the respective services or to fulfil the purpose for which the personal data was collected, or until the cookies are deactivated.

8. Newsletter data

9. Social plugins

9.1 Type, scope, and purposes of data collection, processing, and use

Data protection for the social plugins used: The website contains buttons from various social media networks using the “2-click solution”. In order to leave it up to the data subject to decide whether data is transmitted to these networks, only a reference to the respective function is shown instead of the actual social plugin. Only by clicking on the link is the respective social plugin is activated, which leads to the data transfers described below.

9.2 Data protection regulations for the use and application of Facebook

9.2.1 The data controller has integrated components of the company Facebook on this website.

9.2.2 The operating company of Facebook is Facebook Inc. (hereinafter referred to as “Facebook”), 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. If a data subject lives outside the United States or Canada, the party responsible for processing personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

9.2.3 After activating the social plugin, each time the data subject accesses one of the individual pages of https://www.about.university4industry.com/, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plugins is available at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. As part of this technical process, Facebook is informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.

9.2.4 If the data subject is logged on to Facebook at the same time, Facebook will recognize which specific page of our website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject accesses our website and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the “Like” button, or if the data subject makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.

9.2.5 If the data subject does not want this information to be transferred to Facebook in this way, he or she can prevent such transmission by logging out of his or her Facebook account before accessing our website.

9.2.6 The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing, and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which setting options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject. In addition, various applications are available that make it possible to suppress data transmission to Facebook, such as the Facebook blocker from the provider Webgraph, which can be found at http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress data transfer to Facebook.

9.3 Data protection regulations for the use and application of LinkedIn

9.3.1 The data controller has integrated components of LinkedIn Corporation on the website https://www.about.university4industry.com. LinkedIn is an Internet-based social network that allows users to connect with existing business contacts and establish new business contacts.

For data protection matters outside the USA, LinkedIn Ireland, Privacy Policy Issues, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, is responsible.

9.3.3 After activating the plugin, the LinkedIn component will cause the data subject’s browser to download an appropriate representation of the LinkedIn component each time he or she visits our website. Further information about LinkedIn plugins can be found at https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. This technical process allows LinkedIn to know which specific page of our website is visited by the data subject.

9.3.4 If the data subject is logged on to LinkedIn at the same time, LinkedIn will know which specific page of our website the data subject is visiting each time the data subject accesses our website and throughout the time the data subject is on our website. This information is collected by the LinkedIn component and is assigned by LinkedIn to the LinkedIn account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on a LinkedIn button integrated on our website, LinkedIn will associate this information with the personal LinkedIn user account of the data subject and store this personal data.

9.3.5 If the data subject does not wish to receive such information from LinkedIn, the data subject may prevent such transmission by logging out of his or her LinkedIn account before accessing our website.

He or she also has the right to obtain the communication of these data to another controller without interference from the controller to whom the personal data have been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) of the European Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) of the European Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 or on a contract pursuant to Article 9(2)(a) of the European Data Protection Supervisor’s Regulation (EC) 2016/679. 6(1)(b) of the European Data Protection Basic Regulation (EU) 2016/679 and the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
