Privacy policy

General

As the operator of this website and as a company, we come into contact with your personal data. This refers to all data that say something about you and with which you can be identified. In this privacy policy, we would like to explain in what way, for what purpose and on what legal basis we process your data.

Responsible for the data processing on this website and in our company is: EPOS Marketing UG

EPOS privacy policy

General notes

SSL or TLS encryption

When you enter your data on websites, place online orders or send e-mails over the Internet, you must always be prepared for unauthorized third parties to access your data. There is no complete protection against such access. However, we do everything in our power to protect your data as best we can and to close security gaps as far as we can.

An important protection mechanism is the SSL or TLS encryption of our website, which ensures that data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize the encryption by the lock icon in front of the Internet address entered in your browser and by the fact that our Internet address begins with https:// and not with http://.

How long do we store your data?

At some points in this privacy policy, we inform you about how long we or the companies that process your data on our behalf will store your data. In the absence of such information, we store your data until the purpose of the data processing no longer applies, you object to the data processing or you revoke your consent to the data processing.

However, in the event of an objection or revocation, we may continue to process your data if at least one of the following conditions is met:

Privacy policy

We have compelling legitimate grounds for continuing data processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms (only in the case of objection to data processing; if the objection is to direct marketing, we cannot provide legitimate grounds).

The data processing is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims (does not apply if your objection is directed against direct marketing).

We are required by law to retain your data.
In this case, we will delete your data as soon as the requirement(s) cease to apply.

Data transfer to the USA

We also use tools on our website from companies that transfer your data to the USA and store and possibly process it there. The European Commission has adopted an adequacy decision for the EU-US data protection framework. This establishes that the US ensures an adequate level of protection for personal data from the EU transferred to US companies. This decision is based on new safeguards and measures put in place by the U.S. to meet data protection requirements. The adequacy decision includes, among other things, restrictions and safeguards on access to data by U.S. intelligence agencies. Binding safeguards were put in place to limit U.S. intelligence agencies' access to what is necessary and proportionate to protect national security. In addition, increased oversight of U.S. intelligence activities was established to ensure that restrictions on surveillance activities are respected. An independent redress mechanism has also been established to handle and resolve complaints from European citizens about access to their data. The EU-U.S. data protection framework thus allows European companies to transfer data to certified U.S. companies without having to implement additional data protection safeguards. A list of all certified companies can be viewed at the following link: https://www.dataprivacyframework.gov /s/participant-search

A change in the decision of the European Commission cannot be ruled out.

Your rights

Objection to data processing

IF YOU READ IN THIS PRIVACY STATEMENT THAT WE HAVE LEGITIMATE INTERESTS FOR PROCESSING YOUR DATA AND THEREFORE RELY ON ART. 6 ABS. 1 SENTENCE 1 LIT. F) DSGVO, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT UNDER ART. 21 DSGVO, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING THAT IS CARRIED OUT ON THE BASIS OF THE AFOREMENTIONED PROVISION. THE PREREQUISITE IS THAT YOU STATE REASONS FOR THE OBJECTION THAT ARISE FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION. NO REASONS ARE REQUIRED IF THE OBJECTION IS DIRECTED AGAINST THE USE OF YOUR DATA FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING.

THE CONSEQUENCE OF THE OBJECTION IS THAT WE MAY NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR DATA. THIS DOES NOT APPLY ONLY IF ONE OF THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS IS MET:

WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR PROCESSING THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS.

THE PROCESSING SERVES THE ASSERTION, EXERCISE OR DEFENSE OF LEGAL CLAIMS.

THE EXCEPTIONS DO NOT APPLY IF YOUR OBJECTION IS DIRECTED AGAINST DIRECT ADVERTISING OR AGAINST PROFILING THAT IS CONNECTED WITH IT.

Other rights

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are based on your consent. You give this consent, for example, by checking the appropriate box on online forms before you send the form, or by allowing certain cookies when you visit our website. You may revoke your consent at any time without giving reasons (Art. 7 (3) DSGVO). From the time of revocation, we may then no longer process your data. The only exception: we are required by law to retain the data for a certain period of time. Such retention periods exist in particular in tax and commercial law.

Right to complain to the competent supervisory authority

If you believe that we are in breach of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR. You may contact a supervisory authority in the Member State of your residence, place of work or the place where the alleged infringement took place. The right of complaint exists alongside administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

Data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract must be handed over to you or a third party in a common machine-readable format if you request this. We can only transfer the data to another responsible party if this is technically possible.

Right to information, deletion and correction of data

According to Art. 15 DSGVO, you have the right to receive information free of charge about which of your personal data we have stored, where the data came from, to whom we transmit the data and for what purpose it is stored. If the data is incorrect, you have the right to rectification (Art. 16 DSGVO), under the conditions of Art. 17 DSGVO you may demand that we delete the data.

Right to restriction of processing

In certain situations, you may request us to restrict the processing of your data in accordance with Art. 18 DSGVO. The data may then - apart from storage - only be processed as follows:

with your consent
for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims

to protect the rights of another natural or legal person

for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State

The right to restrict processing exists in the following situations:

You have disputed the accuracy of your personal data stored by us and we need time to verify this. Here the right exists for the duration of the review.

The processing of your personal data is unlawful or was unlawful in the past. Here you have the right alternatively to the deletion of the data.

We no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims. Here you have the right alternatively to the deletion of the data.

You have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO and now your and our interests must be weighed against each other. Here, the right exists as long as the result of the weighing has not yet been determined.

Our website is located on a server of the following internet service provider (hoster): Bluehost Inc.
5335 Gate Parkway Suite 300
Jacksonville, FL 32256 USA

Has a contract on commissioned processing been concluded with the hoster or are standard contractual clauses (SCC) used?

Yes

How do we process your data?

The hoster stores all data of our website. This includes all personal data that is collected automatically or through your input. This can be in particular: Your IP address, pages accessed, names, contact data and requests, as well as meta and communication data. When processing data, our hoster adheres to our instructions and always processes the data only insofar as this is necessary to fulfill the service obligation to us.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

Since we address potential customers via our website and maintain contacts with existing customers, the data processing by our hoster serves to initiate and fulfill contracts and is therefore based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b) DSGVO. In addition, it is our legitimate interest as a company to provide a professional Internet offering that meets the necessary requirements for security,

speed and efficiency. In this respect, we also process your data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

Data collection on this website Cookies use

Our website places cookies on your device. These are small text files that are used for different purposes. Some cookies are technically necessary for the website to function at all (necessary cookies). Others are needed to perform certain actions or functions on the site (functional cookies). For example, without cookies it would not be possible to take advantage of a shopping cart in an online store. Still other cookies are used to analyze user behavior or to optimize advertising measures. If we use third-party services on our website, e.g. to process payment transactions, these companies may also leave cookies on your device when you access the website (so-called third party cookies).

How do we process your data?

Session cookies are only stored on your device for the duration of a session. As soon as you close the browser, they disappear by themselves. Permanent cookies, on the other hand, remain on your device if you do not delete them yourself. This can lead, for example, to your user behavior being permanently analyzed. You can use the settings in your browser to influence how it handles cookies:

Do you want to be informed when cookies are set?
Do you want to exclude cookies in general or for certain cases?
Do you want cookies to be deleted automatically when closing the browser?

If you disable or do not allow cookies, the functionality of the website may be limited.

If we use cookies from other companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you about this as part of this privacy policy. We also request your consent in this regard when you visit our website.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

We have a legitimate interest in ensuring that our online offers can be used by visitors without technical problems and that all desired functions are available to them. The storage of necessary and functional cookies on your device is therefore based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. We use all other cookies on the basis of Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO, provided you give us your consent. You can revoke this at any time with effect for the future. If you have consented to the placement of necessary and functional cookies when requesting consent, these cookies are also stored exclusively on the basis of your consent.

Your IP address (from which your country is also determined) the browser used
the language used
the web page accessed

In addition, Consent Manager stores various cookies in your browser in order to be able to assign the consents given or their revocation to your browser. All collected data is stored until the cookies are no longer needed, you delete the cookies from Consent Manager or you request us to delete the data. This does not apply only if we are required by law to retain the data.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

We are legally obliged to obtain the consent of our website visitors for the use of certain cookies. In order to fulfill this obligation, we use Consent Manager. The legal basis for data processing is therefore Art. 6 (1) c) DSGVO.

Server log files

Server log files log all requests and accesses to our website and record error messages. They also include personal data, in particular your IP address.

How do we process your data?

Our provider stores server log files in order to track activity on our website and locate errors. The files contain the following data:

Browser type and version

Host name of the accessing computer Time of server request

IP address (anonymized if necessary)

We do not combine this data with other data, but use it only for statistical analysis and to improve our website.

In all other cases, it is our legitimate interest to effectively process requests directed to us. The legal basis for data processing is therefore Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO.

Where can I find more information about privacy at Mail Poet?

https://automattic.com/privacy/

On what basis do we transfer your data to the USA?

Based on the adequacy decision of the European Commission and the corresponding certification of the company.

How do we process your data?

We use Mail Poet for our newsletter distribution. The service manages the newsletter subscribers' data for us, sends our newsletter and analyzes our newsletter campaigns.

If you would like to receive our newsletter, we need your e-mail address. We will also verify by means of a confirmation email (double opt-in procedure) whether you are really the owner of this email address. We do not collect any further data or only on a voluntary basis. We use your data exclusively for sending the newsletter. They are stored on a Mail Poet server.

If we send a newsletter via Mail Poet and you open it, a file contained in the newsletter automatically connects to Mail Poet's servers. This tells the service that the newsletter has been opened and registers all clicks on the links it contains. In doing so, it also registers whether you have made a purchase after clicking on a link, for example. In addition, Mail Poet collects technical information, such as the time of the retrieval, the IP address, browser type and operating system.

Mail Poet allows us to divide the recipients of our newsletter by categories, e.g. age, gender or place of residence. This allows us to better tailor our newsletters to the respective target group.

You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time.

How long do we store your data?

After you have unsubscribed, the data will be deleted from the newsletter distribution list. Under certain circumstances, we may also blacklist your email address; this is necessary, for example, if we receive an objection to advertising from you. The storage then takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

Furthermore, we reserve the right to delete the data at any time after the purpose for which it was collected has ceased to exist or at our own discretion.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

By entering your name in the subscriber list, you consent to data processing by Mail Poet. This is done lawfully on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. You can revoke your consent by unsubscribing from the newsletter or by sending us an informal message. For us, this means that we may no longer send you newsletters from this point on.

Google Web Fonts (local hosting)

We use fonts from the US company Google on our website. We have installed the fonts locally, so there is no connection to Google's servers when you visit our website.

You can find more information about Google Web Fonts at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google's privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

You have the right to object to this data processing. If you make use of this right, we will no longer be able to contact you in this way.

The program is used by us in "privacy controls" mode. This provides special protection for your data.

Audio and video conferencing

As a company, we are in contact with many people: Customers, business partners, service providers, etc. In addition to other means of communication, we also use online conferencing tools. You will find information relevant to data protection law on the provider(s) of the tools we use at the end of this section. If you communicate with us via such a tool, not only we, but in particular the provider of the respective tool, process your personal data.

How do we process your data?

Online conferencing tools collect and store various personal data to enable participation in an online conference and its smooth execution. In addition to registration, conference and technical data, this also concerns certain communication content.

Registration data: Your e-mail address and/or telephone number and, if applicable, other data that you provide when registering for the conference.

Conference data: The start, end, and duration of your participation in the conference, the number of participants, and other metadata about the conference.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

If we are already contractually connected or if you would like to conclude a contract with us, we use conference tools to fulfill the contract or to inform you about our services or products. In this respect, the data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO. Otherwise, the use of conferencing tools serves the purpose of simple and quick communication, without which we would not be able to run our business efficiently. We therefore also have a legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f) DSGVO. Another legal basis may be your consent. Relevant in this case is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. This basis ceases to apply for the future if you revoke your consent.

Own services / Other Handling of applicant data

If you would like to work for us, we will be happy to receive your application. We treat all personal data submitted as strictly confidential. This also applies to data that we collect later in the course of the application process.

How do we process your data?

We store and use all data that we collect as part of the application process, insofar as this is necessary for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship. In addition to contact and communication data and application documents, this also applies, for example, to notes that we take during interviews. We only pass on your data within our company to persons who are involved in processing your application.

In the event of a successful application, we store the data required for the implementation of the employment relationship in our data processing systems.

If we are unable to offer you a suitable position at the moment, we will be happy to include your data in our applicant pool with your consent. This gives us the opportunity to contact you if a position becomes available that fits your profile.

How long do we store your data?

If we are unable to make you a job offer, you decline a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain your documents and other application data for up to 6 months after the application process has ended. The reason is that we need to

data in the event of a legal dispute, if necessary for evidentiary purposes. After expiry of the deadline, we delete the data and destroy the documents. If a legal dispute is actually imminent or already pending, we will delete the data and documents if they are no longer required for evidentiary purposes.

We delete data in the applicant pool no later than 2 years after consent has been given. If you revoke your consent before this period expires, we will delete it sooner.

The deletion of your data always requires that we are not legally obligated to keep it longer.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

We process your applicant data on the basis of § 26 BDSG-neu (initiation of an employment relationship) and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO (general contract initiation).

The same applies if your application is successful.

If we are unable to make you a job offer, you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we have a legitimate interest in using your data for evidentiary purposes in any legal dispute. The data processing is therefore based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

If you have expressly consented to the storage of your data, we process your data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

Data processing on social media

What is social media?

By social media, we mean the social networks on which we have created publicly accessible profiles. You can read more about which social networks these are below.

Who processes your data?

The respective operating companies of the social networks. You can find the individual operators below under the respective networks.

How is your data processed?

The operators of social networks are usually able to collect and analyze comprehensive data about the behavior of visitors and users of the network. It is not possible for us to track all processing operations in the social networks we use, which is why further processing operations not listed here may be carried out by the operators of the social networks. You can find more information on this in the terms of use and privacy statements of the respective social networks.

The processing of your data can be triggered by you visiting the website of the social network or our profile page there. Even if you visit a website that uses certain content of the network, e.g. like or share buttons, data may already be transmitted to the operators of the social network. If you yourself are a user of the social network and logged into your user account, your visit to our profile page can be assigned to your account by the operator of the social network. Even if you yourself have not registered a user account or are not logged in,

it may be that the operator of the network nevertheless collects your personal data, e.g. by recording your IP address or setting cookies. With this data, the operators can create user profiles adapted to your behavior and interests and show you interest-based advertising inside and outside the network. If you are a registered user of the network, the interest-based advertising can also be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.

On what legal basis is your data processed?

Our profiles in the social networks are intended to ensure the broadest possible presence of our company on the Internet. As a company, we have a legitimate interest in this. The data processing is therefore lawful according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The data processing operations and analyses carried out by the operators of the social networks themselves may be based on other legal bases. These must be stated by the operators of the social networks.

Who is responsible for processing your data and how can you exercise your rights?

If you visit one of our profiles on the social networks, we are jointly responsible with the operator of the respective network for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can assert your rights both against us and against the operator of the respective network.

Despite the joint responsibility with the operators of the social networks, however, our influence on the data processing operations of the respective operator is limited and is primarily based on the operator's specifications.

How long will your data be stored?

If we collect data via our profiles in the social networks, these are deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for storing them no longer applies, you request us to delete them or you revoke your consent to storage. Stored cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

We have no influence on how long the operators of the social networks store your data, which the operators collect for their own purposes. You can obtain information on this directly from the operator of the respective social network, e.g. in the respective privacy policy.
