Privacy Policy

Basic information

This data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of this website about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator sprylab technologies GmbH. Furthermore, this data protection provision applies to our service “Purple DS”  (www.purplemanager.com), which is repeatedly referred to on these pages.

The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with legal regulations. As new technologies and the continuous development of this website may result in changes to this data protection declaration, we recommend that you read the data protection declaration again at regular intervals.

Definitions of the terms used (e.g. “personal data” or “processing”) can be found in Art. 4 DSGVO.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

The use of the contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation by third parties for sending unsolicited advertising and information material is hereby expressly prohibited. The operators of these pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited advertising information being sent, for example in the form of spam mails.

Data protection officer

  • Visited Website
  • Time at time of access
  • Amount of data sent in bytes
  • Source/reference from which you accessed the page
  • Browser used

The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to clarify cases of misuse. If data have to be stored for reasons of evidence, they are excluded from deletion until the incident has been finally resolved.

For our service “Purple DS” (www.purplemenager.com) we also collect personal data that is necessary for the performance of our services. This data is only collected for internal purposes and is not passed on to third parties.

Cookies are small files that are stored on your end device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website.

Collection and processing of personal data

The website operator only collects, uses and passes on your personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.

Personal information is any information that is used to identify you and which can be traced back to you, such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, in order to improve our online offer, we store your access data to this website (without personal reference). This access data includes, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. By anonymizing the data, it is not possible to draw conclusions about your person.

 

Handling of contact data

If you contact us as a website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Dealing with comments and contributions

If you leave a contribution or comment on this website, your IP address will be saved. This is done on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO and serves the security of us as website operator: Because if your comment should offend against valid right, we can be sued for it, why we have an interest in the identity of the comment and/or contribution author.

Google Analytics

Due to our legitimate interests, this website uses for the optimisation and analysis of our online offer in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 letter f. of GDPR uses the service “Google Analytics”, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses “cookies” – text files which are stored on your end device.

IP anonymisation is used on this website. The IP address of users will be reduced within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other signatory states to the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transmitted in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. This reduction eliminates the personal reference to your IP address. The user’s IP address transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.

As part of the agreement on order data, which we as website operator have concluded with Google Inc., Google uses the information collected to evaluate the use of the website and website activity and to provide services connected with the use of the Internet.

The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online offer by individual users, e.g. to create reports on the activity on the website in order to improve our online offer.

Notes for Job Applicants

We process personal data about you for the purpose of your application for an employment relationship, insofar as this is necessary for the decision to establish an employment relationship with us. The legal basis is § 26 Paragraph 1 in conjunction with Paragraph 8 Sentence 2 Federal Data Protection Act. Furthermore, we may process personal data about you insofar as this is necessary to defend against legal claims asserted against us in the application process. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para. 1, Letter f GDPR; the legitimate interest is, for example, a duty of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG in German law). Insofar as an employment relationship exists between you and us, we may process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship in accordance with Section 26 (1) Federal Data Protection Act if this is necessary for the performance or termination of the employment relationship or for exercising or fulfilling the rights and obligations of the employees’ representation of interests resulting from a law or collective agreement (collective agreement).

We process data in connection with your application. This may include general information about you (such as your name, address and contact details), information about your professional qualifications and schooling or information about professional training or other information you provide us in connection with your application. Furthermore, we may process job-related information made publicly available by you, such as a profile on professional social media networks.

We store your personal data for as long as it is necessary to make a decision about your application. If an employment relationship between you and us does not materialize, we may also further store data, insofar as this is necessary to defend against possible legal claims. The application documents will be deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, unless longer storage is required due to legal disputes.

The provision of personal data is neither required by law nor by contract, nor are you obliged to provide the personal data. However, the provision of personal data is required for a contract of employment with us. This means that if you do not provide us with any personal data in an application, we will not enter into an employment relationship with you.
