Privacy notice

We are delighted that you are interested in our website. We take the protection of personal information very seriously and pay close attention to this aspect in our online activities. Our privacy policy complies with the applicable data protection legislation, in particular Germany’s Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG) and Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz, TMG).

  1. What is covered by data protection?

Data protection covers personal data. As defined in Section 3 para. 1 of the BDSG, personal data means any information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes e.g. your name, postal address, email address or telephone number, but may also cover usage data like your IP address.

 

  1. Gathering and storing personal details

You can visit our website without providing personal information. We will simply store your access data without any personal identifiers (usage data). This information is analyzed exclusively to improve our offering and does not enable us to identify you as an individual. In addition, we use your (previously anonymized) IP address to establish the country you are visiting our website from so that we can present you with the right language version. We do not store the anonymized IP address for this purpose.

Additional personal information, such as your name, address, telephone number and email address, which you provide voluntarily, e.g. during the recruitment process or when sending a request for information by email, will be used only for the purpose for which you provided the information.

We store personal details no longer than necessary to carry out the purpose (e.g. recruitment process) that you have requested or to which you have agreed, provided there are no legal obligations to do otherwise.

 

  1. Use of cookies

To enhance your experience when visiting our website and to enable you to use certain functions, we make use of cookies on some of our web pages. These are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device. Most of the cookies we use are deleted again when you end your browser session (session cookies). Other cookies stay on your computer or mobile device and enable us to recognize your browser again the next time you visit our website (permanent cookies). This information is not used to identify website visitors personally.

Most browsers are set to allow cookies automatically, but you can also block cookies or set your browser to inform you whenever a cookie is sent to your computer.

 

  1. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies,” which are text files placed on your computer that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the United States. In case of activation of IP anonymization on this website, Google will, however, truncate your IP address beforehand within Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser; however, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent Googles collection and use of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

For further information on terms of use and data protection/privacy, please see http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html or http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/index.html. Please note that on this website, Google Analytics has been supplemented by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” in order to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses (“IP masking”).

  1. Social networks, including Facebook

Our website offers social plugins for various social networks. If you sign in to a social network, e.g. Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, your subsequent activity on our website will be forwarded to this social network.

If you are signed in to a social network while visiting our website, the social network will add this information to your profile. In this way, the social network is informed that our website has been visited from your IP address. If you are signed in to e.g. Facebook, you can create a link to content on our website in your Facebook profile by clicking on the Like button. It is then possible for Facebook to link your visit to our website to your Facebook account.

If you have one or more social network accounts and do not want the social networks to associate the information they receive via our website with your account details, you need to sign out of any social networks before visiting our website.

We, the website provider, have no influence over data capture and data transmission carried out by social plugins. Please read the privacy policies published by the social networks for information on the capture and transmission of personal data.

  1. Data security

We secure our website and other systems with up-to-date technical and organizational measures to prevent your data being lost, destroyed, accessed, modified or disseminated by unauthorized persons. When sending personal data, we make use of encryption technology to ensure extremely high levels of confidentiality. Our servers use various security mechanisms and permission processes to make unauthorized access difficult. You should keep your access information secret at all times and close your browser window once you have finished communicating with Favendo. This will ensure that no one apart from you can access your personal data if you share your computer with other people.

 

  1. Links

 Our website may include links to third-party websites that publish content over which we have no influence. We are therefore unable to accept liability for this third-party content. The content of linked sites remains the responsibility of the provider or operator of the sites in question. Linked sites were checked for possible statutory violations at the time the link was created. No illegal content was identified at this time. However, it is unreasonable to expect us to monitor the content of linked sites continuously without concrete indication of wrongdoing. If we become aware of any violation, we will immediately remove the links in question.
