Access Data/Server Log Files
The provider (and the web space provider respectively) collects data on every access to our offer (the so-called server log files). The collected access data are comprised of:
Name of the web page accessed, file, date and time of the access, transferred data amount, report of successful retrieval, browser type and version, the operating system of the user, referring URL (the previously used site), IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider uses the anonymized log information for the statistic evaluation for the sole purpose of operating, securing and optimizing its offer. The provider, however, reserves the right to retroactively review the log information, if concrete indications suggest the justified suspicion of an unlawful use.
The Processing of Personal Data
Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including first and last name, email address, and telephone number. Data about personal interests, hobbies, memberships and which websites an individual visited also constitute personal data.
The provider collects, uses and passes on personal information only if permissible by law or if the users have consented to the collection of data.
Contacting the Provider
When contacting the provider (via contact form or email, for instance), the user’s personal information (name, postal address or email, phone number and other data) is collected, stored and used for the purpose of processing the request, and when additional questions arise.
During correspondence via email or the contact form, the user should be aware that these are not secure means of communication, and that the contents cannot be fully protected from unauthorized access by outside third parties.
Disclosure of Personal Data to Third Parties
The provider exclusively uses personal data for the company’s own internal purposes. DAS Environmental Expert GmbH does not disclose personal data unless the user has given consent, or, insofar permissible by law, it is necessary for providing the services requested by the user.
If the provider contracts third parties to process data for the purpose of supporting the provider’s business processing, these third parties are required to preserve data protection standards and grant the provider the right to monitor their compliance with legal requirements. In this case the provider retains all legal responsibility for the compliance with data protection regulations (‘contract data processing’).
The provider has adopted specific organizational and technical security measures to protect the user’s personal data. The security measures are in accordance with the most current technology standards and are continuously updated to the latest developments. All of our employees, who come in contact with personal data, are required to adhere to data protection regulations and have been briefed on the legal guidelines.
Insofar data are collected for the purpose of initiating or implementing a contractual relationship, communication with the provider will be encrypted according to state-of-the-art technology in order to prevent abuse by third parties.
Storage and Deletion of Person Data
All of the user’s personal data stored by the provider is deleted – immediately and irreversibly – as soon as they are no longer needed for the purposes they were collected, and insofar the provider is not required to store the data by statutory provisions. If the provider is required to store the data, they will be deleted irreversibly at the end of the legally required storage period.
Services and Contents Made Available by Third Parties
It is possible that within our online offer we embed third party contents such as YouTube videos, cartographic material like Google maps, RSS feeds or graphics of other web pages. This always assumes that the provider of these contents (in the following called ‘third party service provider’) recognizes the users’ IP-address, because without the IP-address the third party service provider cannot send the contents to the browser of the respective user; the IP-address is therefore required to present these contents. We make an effort to use only those contents where the respective third party service provider uses the IP-address for the sole purpose of delivering contents. It is possible that a third party service provider stores the user’s IP-address for statistical purposes. This is outside the scope of our influence, but if we are made aware of the situation, we will inform the user.
Using our offer is also possible without cookies. Within their browser, a user can deactivate the storage of cookies, limit it to specific websites or configure their browser in such a way that it will notify them before storing any cookie. Via privacy features of their browser, a user can delete cookies from their computer’s hard drive at any time, which, however, may limit the functions and user-friendliness of the offer.
Our offer uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, text files that are stored in the user’s computer and allow analyzing the usage of the web site. The information produced by the cookies about the usage of the website through the user are usually transferred to a Google-owned server in the U.S. and saved at their U.S. location.
According to an agreement between the states of the European Union, and in other states that are part of the agreement concerning the European market, and in case the user activates the IP-anonymization on this website, Google will, within these states, shorten the user’s IP address prior to storing it. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address will be transferred via a Google server to the U.S. and shortened afterwards. Our website has activated the IP address anonymization. At the request of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the usage of this website through the users, to compile reports about their web site activities, and to render additional services in connection to the website and Internet usage to the website operator.
The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser as part of Google Analytics will not be joined with other Google data.
Additional information about Google and Google Analytics can be found here:
Users can avoid the storage of cookies through specific settings within their browser software. We, the provider, however, want to make it known that in this case, the user may not be able to completely use all features of this website. In addition, users can avoid the collection of data produced by cookies and related to the usage of the website (including their IP address), the data’s transmission to Google as well as the processing of this data through Google, by downloading and installing the available browser plugin at the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
Revocation, Changes, Corrections and Updates
Users have the right to know what personal data has been stored and may apply to get this information at no charge. In addition, the users have the right to the correction, blocking or deletion of their personal data insofar as there is no legal obligation to retain such data.
The provider reserves the right to update this privacy statement as required for adaption to current technological developments or in relation to offering new services or products. The most recent version of our privacy statement is available on our website.
Privacy Statement regarding Online Applications
Personal data are stored and used according to German data protection regulations, in particular the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
Taking advantage of the online application facilitates and accelerates the processing of an application; by sending an online application, applicants explicitly agree to the storage, evaluation and transmission of their data.
The applicant’s personal data is electronically stored and used for the sole purpose of processing the application. After the application process is concluded all personal data is deleted. Employees of the human resources department and decision makers in the respective departments are the only ones to have access to the data. All employees who work with data processing have been obligated to maintain data confidentiality according to §5 BDSG. Applicants, moreover, have the right, at any time and without giving reasons, to have their data deleted or corrected by sending a corresponding order to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The applicant database is deleted after 6 months, at the latest, if the applicant has not consented to the continued storage of their data.
