Providing the website and creating log files

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically records data and information from the accessing device (e.g. computer, mobile phone, tablet, etc.).

 

What personal data is collected and to what extent is it processed?

(1) Information about the browser type and the version used;
(2) The accessing device’s operating system;
(3) The host name of the accessing computer;
(4) The accessing device’s IP address;
(5) The date and time of access;
(6) Websites and resources (images, files, other page contents) that were accessed on our website;
(7) Websites from which the user’s system accessed our website (referrer tracking);
(8) Message confirming whether access was successful;
(9) The amount of data transmitted;
(10) The host’s ISP.

This data is stored in our system’s log files. This data is not stored together with other personal data belonging to a specific user, so individual site visitors are not identified.

The data is also anonymised immediately after collection, so it is no longer possible to draw conclusions about the individual person based on their IP address. Evaluating the anonymised data allows us to monitor and improve our website’s stability and availability over an extended period of time. Temporary (automated) storage of data in plain text format is necessary for a visit to a website to enable delivery of the website.

Personal data is also stored and processed to maintain our website’s compatibility for all visitors where possible and to combat misuse and eliminate faults. To this end, it is necessary to log the accessing computer’s technical data, so that we can respond to display errors, attacks on our IT systems and/or functionality errors on our website as early as possible. Additionally, we also use the data to optimise the website and to ensure the general security of our IT systems.

 

Legal basis for personal data processing

Art. 6 (1) f of the GDPR (legitimate interest). Our legitimate interest is to guarantee achievement of the purpose outlined below.

 

Purpose of data processing

Temporary (automated) data storage is necessary for a visit to a website to enable delivery of the website. Personal data is also stored and processed to maintain our website’s compatibility for all visitors where possible and to combat misuse and eliminate faults. To this end, it is necessary to log the accessing computer’s technical data, so that we can respond to display errors, attacks on our IT systems and/or functionality errors on our website as early as possible. Additionally, we also use the data to optimise the website and to ensure the general security of our IT systems.

 

Duration of storage

The above technical data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed to guarantee the website’s compatibility for all visitors, but at the latest within three months of our website being accessed. Anonymised data is generally stored indefinitely for statistical purposes.

 

Opportunity for objection and erasure

You may object to processing at any time according to Art. 21 of the GDPR and request that your data be erased according to Art. 17 of the GDPR. You will find the rights that you are entitled to and information on how to assert them at the bottom of this privacy policy.

 

Processor

We work together with a service provider, who helps us to provide the server capacity required for this, to supply our site’s content. Insofar as server access is required within the website, the data collected thereby is processed for this purpose on servers run by the company

STRATO AG, Otto-Ostrowski-Strasse 7, 10249 Berlin, Germany(https://strato.de).

Your data is processed based on a processing contract according to Art. 28 of the GDPR, which is the legal basis for data transfer to this company. In addition, our online agency is engaged as a processor for the purpose of maintaining our website:

blueAlpha GmbH, Amerikastrasse 21, 66482 Zweibrücken, Germany(https://bluealpha.de))

 

Special features of the website

Our site offers you a variety of features which, when used by us, serve to collect, process and store personal data. We have provided an explanation of what happens to this data below:

 

Application form

 

What personal data is collected and to what extent is it processed?

The data that you enter in the application form’s form fields and upload if necessary will be processed to fulfil the purpose stated below.

You must provide your first and last name, date of birth, telephone number, email address and postal address (street, building number, postcode, town/city). You must also upload a CV (mandatory) before submitting your application. All other information, such as a cover letter, references or other documents, are voluntary, but we may request them as part of the application process. You will also still have to answer the CAPTCHA request for submission purposes.

Legal basis for personal data processing

The legal basis for collecting and processing applicant data is Art. 6 (1) b (initiating a contract), and Art. 88 (1) of the GDPR in conjunction with Section 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Act. Insofar as special categories of personal data that are required for the fulfilment of legal obligations arising from labour law, social security law and social protection according to Art. 9 (2) b of the GDPR in conjunction with Section 26 (3) of the German Federal Data Protection Act are collected, processing is performed on this legal basis. If special categories of personal data are also to be processed, we will obtain consent for this according to Art. 9 (2) a of the GDPR.

 

Purpose of data processing

The purpose of data processing is reviewing and processing the application documents you upload using the form.

 

Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as the application has been processed and there is no longer a legitimate interest in storing the application data. If your application is successful, we will continue to process the data according to Art. 6 (1) b, and Art. 88 (1) of the GDPR in conjunction with Section 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Act in the context of your employment relationship. Your application documents will therefore be deleted six months at the latest following conclusion of the application process if no further storage is required (e.g. due to a legal dispute about the application process). In this case, the data is stored for as long as it is required for further storage to achieve the purpose.

 

Opportunity for objection and erasure

You will find the rights that you are entitled to and information on how to assert them at the bottom of this privacy policy.

Statistical evaluation of visits to this website – web trackers

We collect, process and store the following data when our website, or individual files of our website, are accessed: IP address, web page that the file was accessed from, name of the file, the date and time of access, the volume of data transmitted and the access success notification (‘web log’). We only use this access data in a non-personalised form with a view to continuously improving our website and for statistical purposes. We also use the following web trackers to evaluate visits to our website:

 

Matomo (local)

 

Extent of personal data processing

Our website contains tracking code from Matomo (formerly Piwik), an open-source web analytics tool(https://matomo.orgWeb tracking is carried out exclusively by ourselves without any personally identifiable data. Matomo is hosted on our own server infrastructure for this purpose. Data is not, therefore, transferred to third parties.

We collect, process and store usage data about how our site is used (e.g. referrer links, the time spent on certain URLs, the clickstream) and also data about your browser settings (e.g. the browser manufacturer and version, the screen resolution and the operating system used).

The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) f of the GDPR, and the legitimate interest is website analysis.

We may also collect and store parts of your IP address and information about our website’s loading speed. We can only create anonymous usage profiles and extract statistical information from this data. We also use cookies as part of Matomo web tracking to distinguish returning site visitors from first-time visitors. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in your internet browser’s memory and contain a separate ID and potentially other technical information. The data collected in this context will not be merged with any other personal data we may have without your separate consent.

 

Legal basis for personal data processing

In many cases, there is no personally identifiable information. If you are personally identifiable, the legal basis for collection is Art. 6 (1) f of the GDPR, and the legitimate interest is analysing our website.

 

Purpose of data processing

The purpose of web tracking is to analyse user traffic so we can anonymously monitor our website’s functionality and usability and continuously improve our website. It is used exclusively for the purpose of collecting statistical, non-personal data.

 

Duration of storage

We store all web tracking data collected through Matomo for an indefinite period of time, insofar as this data is only available to us in anonymised form. If the data is not anonymised, we will delete it after 12 months at the latest.

 

Opportunity for objection and erasure

You can prevent the collection and processing of the aforementioned data by installing a JavaScript blocker to prevent the collection of other app analysis data. If you do end up being personally identifiable, you can revoke your consent at any time according to the rules outlined in this privacy policy.

Information about the use of cookies

 

What personal data is collected and to what extent is it processed?

We integrate and use cookies on various pages to enable certain website functions and to integrate external web services. The ‘cookies’ are small text files that your browser can save on your accessing device. These text files contain a characteristic string of characters that uniquely identifies the browser when you return to our website. The process of saving a cookie file is also known as ‘setting a cookie’. Cookies can be set by the website itself and by external web services. Cookies are set by our website or the external web services to maintain our website’s full functionality, to improve user friendliness, or to serve the purpose stated with your consent. Cookie technology also allows us to recognise individual visitors using pseudonyms, e.g. a unique or random ID, so we can provide more personalised services. Details are shown in the table below.

 

Legal basis for personal data processing

Insofar as the cookies are processed based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a of the GDPR, this consent shall also be deemed consent under Section 25 (1) of the German Telecommunications and Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG) for setting the cookie on the user’s terminal device. Insofar as another legal basis is mentioned according to the GDPR (e.g. for the performance of a contract or for the fulfilment of legal obligations), storage or setting is performed based on an exception according to Section 25 (2) of the German Telecommunications and Telemedia Data Protection Act. This is the case ‘where the sole purpose of storing information in the end user’s terminal equipment or the sole purpose of accessing information already stored in the end user’s terminal equipment is to carry out communication transfer over a public telecommunications network’ or ‘where the storage of information in the end user’s terminal equipment or the access to information already stored in the end user’s terminal equipment is strictly necessary to enable the provider of a telemedia service to provide a telemedia service explicitly requested by the user’. Please refer to the cookie table listed further on in this section for the relevant legal basis.

 

Purpose of data processing

Cookies are set by our website or the external web services to maintain our website’s full functionality, to improve user friendliness, or to serve the purpose stated with your consent. Cookie technology also allows us to recognise individual visitors using pseudonyms, e.g. a unique or random ID, so we can provide more personalised services. Details are shown in the table below.

 

Duration of storage

Our cookies are stored until they are deleted from your browser or, if the cookie is a session cookie, until the session is ended. Details are shown in the table below.

 

Widerspruchs- und Beseitigungsmöglichkeit

You can make settings in your browser by yourself in line with your requirements so that the setting of cookies is generally prevented. You can then decide whether to accept cookies on a case-by-case basis or to categorically accept cookies. Cookies can be used for different purposes, e.g. to identify that your accessing device has previously connected to our website (permanent cookies) or to save your most recently viewed pages (session cookies). If you have expressly given us permission to process your personal data, you may revoke this consent at any time. Please note that this does not affect the lawfulness of processing carried out based on such consent up until the same is revoked.

Local and session storage used

In simplified terms, ‘web storage’ technology is a technical option that allows data and information to be stored on the user’s computer or terminal device, in a similar way to cookies. Data can generally be stored in the web storage technology in two ways. The name of the web storage technology depends on the duration of storage. A distinction is made between permanent storage (localStorage) and storage that is limited to the ‘session’ (sessionStorage). A session begins when the page is accessed, and ends when the page is exited (e.g. by closing the tab or the browser). The local or session storage is accessed using the scripts and web services used on the school portal. We have created a table where we explain the type of data and the purpose of the local or session storage.

Data security and data protection, communication by email

When it is collected, stored and processed, your personal data is protected by means of technical and organisational measures to ensure that it is inaccessible to third parties. Since we cannot guarantee complete data security on the transmission path to our IT systems during unencrypted communication by email, we advise sending highly confidential information using encrypted communication or by post.

 

Right of access and rectification requests – Erasure and restriction of data – Revocation of consent – Right to object

 

Right of access

You have the right to request confirmation as to whether we process your personal data. If we do, you have a right of access to the information specified in Art. 15 (1) of the GDPR, provided that the rights and freedoms of others are not adversely affected (cf. Art. 15 (4) of the GDPR). We are also happy to provide you with a copy of the data.

 

Right to rectification

According to Art. 16 of the GDPR, you have the right to have incorrectly stored personal data (such as your address, name, etc.) corrected by us at any time. You can also request that the data we store be completed at any time. Adjustment to this effect will be performed without delay.
