DATA PROTECTION

Privacy policy

Thank you for your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of Munditia Technologies GmbH, business address: Heegstrauchweg 54, 35394 Gießen, registered in the Commercial Register of the Local Court of Gießen under HRB 9911 (hereinafter referred to as „Munditia Technologies GmbH“). The use of the website of the Munditia Technologies GmbH is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the Munditia Technolo-gies GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

As the controller, Munditia Technologies GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website and as a result of the use of special services. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions may be subject to security vulnerabilities, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

3. Cookies

The internet pages of Munditia Technologies GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

 

A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session. These are the following cookies:

munditech_Datenschutz_Tabelle_en.jpg

The legal basis for cookies that are absolutely necessary to provide you with the expressly requested service is § 25 para. 2 no. 2 of the Data Protection and Privacy Act (TTDSG). Any use of cookies that is not absolutely technically necessary for this purpose constitutes data processing that can only be carried out with your express and active consent in accordance with § 25 para. 1 TTDSG in conjunction with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 TTDSG. Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO. This applies in particular to the use of performance, advertising, targeting or sharing cookies. Furthermore, we only pass on your personal data processed by cookies to third parties if you have given your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO.

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the websites and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognised and identified via the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, the Munditia Technologies GmbH can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised for the benefit of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognise the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his or her access data each time he or she visits the website, because this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other software programmes. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

We create pseudonymous usage profiles with the help of Google Analytics in order to design our websites in a needs-oriented manner. You will find detailed information on this in section 9.

4. Collection of general data and information

The website of the Munditia Technologies GmbH collects a series of general data and information every time a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server.

The following can be recorded

 

  • the browser types and versions used,

  • the operating system used by the accessing system,

  • the website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (so-called referrer),

  • the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,

  • the date and time of access to the website,

  • an internet protocol address (IP address),

  • the Internet service provider of the accessing system and

  • other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, the Munditia Technologies GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject.

Rather, this information is required in order to

 

  • deliver the content of our website correctly,

  • optimise the contents of our website as well as the advertising for the same,

  • ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, an

  • provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.

 

Therefore, the Munditia Technologies GmbH analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise so that we can ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process.

The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

5. Contact option via the website

Pursuant to statutory provisions, the website of the Munditia Technologies GmbH contains data that enable a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or by means of a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted voluntarily by a data subject to the data controller will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject.

Die Internetseite der Munditia Technologies GmbH enthält aufgrund von gesetzlichen Vorschriften Angaben, die eine schnelle elektronische Kontaktaufnahme zu unserem Unternehmen sowie eine unmittelbare Kommunikation mit uns ermöglichen, was ebenfalls eine allgemeine Adresse der sogenannten elektronischen Post (E-Mail-Adresse) umfasst. Sofern eine betroffene Person per E-Mail oder über ein Kontaktformular den Kontakt mit dem für die Verarbeitung Verantwortlichen aufnimmt, werden die von der betroffenen Person übermittelten personenbezogenen Daten automatisch gespeichert. Solche auf freiwilliger Basis von einer betroffenen Person an den für die Verarbeitung Verantwortlichen übermittelten personenbezogenen Daten werden für Zwecke der Bearbeitung oder der Kontaktaufnahme zur betroffenen Person gespeichert.

 

6. Transfer of personal data to third parties; justification basis

The following categories of recipients, which are usually order processors, may receive access to your personal data:

  • Service providers for the operation of our website and the processing of data stored or transmitted by the systems (e.g. for data centre services, IT security). The legal basis for the transfer is then Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b or lit. f DS-GVO, insofar as these are not order processors;

  • Government agencies/authorities, insofar as this is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation. The legal basis for the disclosure is then Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. c DS-GVO;

  • Persons employed to carry out our business operations (e.g. auditors, banks, insurance companies, legal advisors, supervisory authorities, parties involved in the acquisition of companies or the establishment of joint ventures). The legal basis for the disclosure is then Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b or lit. f DS-GVO.      

 

For guarantees of an appropriate level of data protection in the event of data being passed on to third countries, see section 17.

In addition, we will only pass on your personal data to third parties if you have given your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a DS-GVO.

When using the contact form, the data transmitted through it is processed (e.g. gender, surname and first name, address, company, e-mail address and the time of transmission).

 

7. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions. With regard to the use and storage period of cookies, please note the information in section 4.

 

8. Rights of the data subject

The Munditia Technologies GmbH will arrange the necessary in individual cases.

Insofar as processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, there is no right to erasure.

9. Privacy policy on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

The controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and evaluation of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data about the website from which a data subject has accessed a website (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the costs and benefits of internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphithe-atre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analy-tics. By means of this add-on, the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is shortened and anonymised by Google if access to our Internet pages takes place from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.

Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. By each call-up of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission calculations.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the time of access, the location from which access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time the person concerned visits our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the person concerned, 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 pass on this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as described above, at any time by means of an appropriate 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 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 programmes.

Furthermore, the data subject has the possibility to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to the use of this website as well as to the processing of this data by Google and to prevent such processing. For this purpose, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information on visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. Google will consider the installation of the browser add-on as an objection. If the data subject's information technology system is deleted, modified or reinstalled at a later date, 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 within his or her sphere of control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set, which will prevent the collection of your data during future visits to this website:

Disable Google Analytics

10. Legal basis and purpose of processing

In principle, any processing of personal data is prohibited by law and only permitted if the data processing falls under one of the following justifications:

  • Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DS-GVO ("consent"):
    Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

  • Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b DS-GVO:
    If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services.

  • Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DS-GVO:
    If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO.

  • Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. d DS-GVO:
    In rare cases, the processing of personal data might be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO.

  • Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. e DS-GVO:
    If 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 company, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. e DS-GVO.

  • Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO:
    Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, sentence 2 of the GDPR).

 

The storage of information in the end user's terminal equipment or access to information already stored in the terminal equipment is only permissible if it is covered by one of the following justifications:

  • Section 25 (1) TTDSG:
    IIf the end user has consented on the basis of clear and comprehensive information. Consent must be given in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO;

  • Section 25 (2) no. 1 TTDSG:
    If the sole purpose is to carry out the transmission of a message via a public telecommunications network or

  • Section 25 (2) no. 2 TTDSG:
    If the storage or access is absolutely necessary so that the provider of a telemedia service can provide a telemedia service expressly requested by the user.

 

In this data protection statement, we state the applicable legal basis for each processing operation we carry out. Processing may also be based on several legal bases.

We process the personal data described in more detail above in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR, the other relevant data protection regulations and only to the extent necessary as follows.

The processing of log data serves statistical purposes and to improve the quality of our website, in particular the stability and security of the connection (legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a or lit. f DS-GVO).

Contact form data is processed for the purpose of handling customer enquiries (legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b or lit. f DS-GVO).

Newsletter data is processed for the purpose of sending the newsletter. When registering for our newsletter, you consent to the processing of your personal data (legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO). We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to register for our newsletter. This means that after your registration, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address you provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. The purpose of this procedure is to verify your registration and, if necessary, to be able to clarify a possible misuse of your personal data. You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe. You can revoke your consent by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter e-mail, by sending an e-mail to info@munditech.de or by sending a message to the contact details given in the imprint.

If the processing of data requires the storage of information in your terminal equipment or access to information already stored in the terminal equipment, the legal basis for this is § 25 para. 1, 2 TTDSG.

11. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

12. Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

13. Legal or contractual regulations on the provision of personal data

We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject provides us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. The data subject must contact us before providing personal data. We will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.

14. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we generally do not use automated decision-making or profiling.

15. Data security/SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for reasons of security and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

16. Cooperation with processors

As with any larger company, we also use external domestic and foreign service providers (e.g. for IT, logistics, telecommunications, sales and marketing) to process our business transactions. These service providers only act on our instructions and are contractually obliged to comply with data protection regulations in accordance with Art. 28 DS-GVO.

If we pass on your personal data to our subsidiaries or if our subsidiaries pass it on to us (e.g. for advertising purposes), this is done on the basis of existing contractual relationships.

17. Conditions for the transfer of personal data to third countries

In the course of our business relationships, your personal data may be transferred or disclosed to third party companies. These may also be located outside the European Economic Area (EEA), i.e. in third countries. Such processing takes place exclusively for the fulfilment of contractual and business obligations and for the maintenance of your business relationship with us (legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit b or lit f in each case in conjunction with Art. 44 ff. DS-GVO). We will inform you about the respective details of the transfer in this data protection declaration at the relevant points.

The European Commission certifies data protection comparable to the EEA standard in some third countries by means of so-called adequacy decisions (a list of these countries and a copy of the adequacy decisions can be found here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/adequacy-decisions_en). However, in other third countries to which personal data may be transferred, there may not be a consistently high level of data protection due to a lack of legal provisions. If this is the case, we ensure that data protection is sufficiently guaranteed. This is possible through binding company regulations, standard contractual clauses of the European Commission for the protection of personal data in accordance with Art. 46 Para. 1, 2 lit. c DS-GVO (the standard contractual clauses of 2021 are available at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32021D0915&locale-en), certificates or recognised codes of conduct. Please contact us if you would like to receive more detailed information on this.

18. Changes to the data protection information

In the context of the further development of data protection law as well as technological or organisational changes, our data protection information is regularly checked for the need to adapt or supplement it. You will be informed of any changes in particular on our German website at www.munditech.de.
