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.
2. 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.
Right of objection
If your personal data are processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f EU-GDPR you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO, provided that there are reasons for this which arise from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which we will implement without specifying a particular situation.
If you wish to exercise your right of revocation or objection, simply send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to register for our Favendo newsletter, we require at least your e-mail address to which the newsletter is to be sent. Further information is voluntary and will only be used with your consent, e.g. to address you personally.
As a rule, we use the double opt-in procedure for newsletter registration. This means that we will not send you a newsletter until you confirm your registration by clicking a link contained into an email we will send to you after you have provided us with your e-mail address. The registration and the confirmation are logged. This is to ensure that only you can register for the newsletter service as a user of the specified e-mail address. Your confirmation must be received as soon as we send the e-mail, otherwise your registration and e-mail address will be deleted from our database. Until you confirm your registration, our newsletter service will not accept any further registrations under this e-mail address.
You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time. To do so, you can either send us an e-mail to email@example.com or use the link at the end of the newsletter to cancel your subscription.

3. Google Analytics
4. 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.
We offer you the possibility to book an appointment through our website. To request and select an appointment we use the online calendar “Calendly”. “Calendly” is an offer of Calendly, LLC, 3423 Piedmont Road NE, Atlanta, GA 30305-1754, United States.
When you press the corresponding booking button, you will be automatically connected to our appointment account at Calendly. After selecting your appointment, confirming it, and entering your contact information and request, you will receive an email from Calendly confirming your appointment.
Your information from the Calendly form, including the data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. This data remains with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. finished appointment). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
We have entered into a “Data Processing Addendum”(https://calendly.com/dpa) with Calendly. This is a contract in which Calendly undertakes to protect the data of our users, to process it on our behalf in accordance with its data protection provisions and, in particular, not to pass it on to third parties. Further information about Calendly and data protection at Calendly can be found here: https://calendly.com/pages/privacy.
6. 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.
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.
