Ways of Data Acquisition

Some data is obtained when you communicate it to us expressly. This may be data that you enter into a contact form, for example.

Other data is acquired automatically by our IT systems or by the IT systems of the hosting service providers commissioned by us when you visit our website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of page visit). Such data is acquired automatically as soon as you visit our website.

When visiting websites, your surfing behaviour may be statistically evaluated. This is performed primarily using cookies and so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is usually anonymous, and the surfing behaviour is not traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it or reduce it by using respectively not using certain tools. More detailed information can be found in the following data protection policy.

Use of Your Data

Some of the data is acquired based on legal obligations. Other data is acquired in order to correctly deliver the content of our website, in order to optimise the content of our website and, as the case may be, the advertising for it, in order to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and in order to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously acquired data and information is therefore evaluated by the website operator statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in order to finally ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us.

More detailed information can be found below.

Security and Encryption

We would like to point out that data transmission on the internet, e.g. communication by e-mail, may be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of transmitted data against access by third parties is not possible.

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and in order to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as the site operator via this website. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser’s address bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is active, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties by legal means.

Job Applications

We obtain and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends us respective application documents electronically, for example by e-mail. For electronic transmission, we provide by prior arrangement an encrypted transmission channel, e.g. via FTPS. For unsolicited applications, we request you sending the same by post only. We reserve the right to delete without delay any unsolicited applications that reach us electronically.

If we enter into an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant, the application documents will be deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of ours are opposed to the deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense may be e.g. the burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (In German: Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz, AGG).

Third Countries

Third countries or third states within the meaning of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) respectively the German Datenschutzgrundverordnung (DSGVO) are countries outside the scope of the GDPR or outside the European Union. We work with selected suppliers, business partners and business customers in third countries in order to be able to offer our business customers and business partners, especially in the German-speaking countries, advice and support on the subject of global shoring (also called offshoring or nearshoring) and also to make the benefits of global shoring, i.e. software, IT oder engineering services that are provided in these third countries for our mostly German-speaking business customers and business partners, available to them or to support them in their successful use.

For this purpose, data is transmitted to third countries exclusively in compliance with the legal requirements for permission.

The basis for the transfer of data to a third country are Art. 49 para. 1 subsection 1 b) GDPR, which permits the transfer of data to a third country if the transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller or the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the data subject’s request, and/or Art. 49 para. 1 subsection 1 c) GDPR, which permits the transfer of data to a third country if the transfer is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract concluded in the interest of the data subject between the controller and another natural or legal person.

Another basis is Art. 49 para. 1 subsection 1 g) GDPR, which permits the transmission of data if the transmission is made from a register which is intended under the law of the European Union or the Member States to inform the public and is open for access either by the entire public or by all persons who can prove a legitimate interest, but only to the extent that the conditions laid down by the law of the Union or the Member States for access in individual cases are met.

Your Rights to Your Data and their Processing

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to request information at no charge about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of its data processing and, if necessary, a right to rectification, restriction of processing or erasure of your data.

Many data processing operations are permitted only with your express consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time with future effect. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail or use the contact form available on the contact page. The lawfulness of data processing operations before the withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.

You have the right to have data, which we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, handed over to you or to a third party in a current, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be executed to the technically feasible extent.

You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint regarding the aforementioned rights as well as regarding further questions on the subject of data protection.

Right to Lodging a Complaint

In the event of breaches of data protection law, the person concerned has a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. The responsible supervisory authority for data protection issues is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our organisation has its legal seat. The legal seat of aproxITo GmbH is located in Germany in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg. A list of data protection officers and their contact details is provided at the following link:

Data Collected on Our Website

Server Log Files

The provider of these pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us or to the hosting service provider commissioned by us, respectively. This information includes:

  • browser type and browser version
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL (i.e. the previously visited page)
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of the server request
  • IP address

A combination of this data with data from other data sources, an inadmissible forwarding or any other use of the data is not carried out by aproxITo GmbH.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 b) GDPR, which permits the processing of data if and to the extent the transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller or the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the data subject’s request.

Another basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR, which permits the processing of data if and to the extent processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child. As the website operator, the responsible party has a legitimate interest in protecting its website from misuse and unauthorised access.

Contact Form

If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your information from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and for the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based on your consent (Art. 6 Par. 1 a) GDPR), which permits the processing of data if and to the extent the data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes. You can withdraw this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal message via e-mail. The lawfulness of the data processing operations before the withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.

The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to erase it or until you withdraw your consent for storage or until the purpose for data storage does no longer apply (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Social Media

We are represented in social networks in order to communicate with customers, prospects, business partners, suppliers and users who are active there and in order to inform them there about our offerings and services. When accessing the respective networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and the data processing guidelines of their respective operators apply.

Unless stated otherwise in our privacy policy, we process the data of users who communicate with us within the social networks, e.g. write contributions, accept our contact requests or send us messages.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 b) GDPR, which permits the processing of data if and to the extent processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract.

Changes to Our Data Protection Policy

We reserve the right to amend this data protection policy from time to time so that it always complies with current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection policy, e.g. when introducing new services or when using new or other tools. The new data protection policy will then apply for your next visit.
