The following will be logged: the name of the accessed file, the time and date of the access, the volume of data transferred, a successful access report, the web browser, the requesting domain and the type of the requesting mobile end device and its software version. In addition, the IP addresses of the requesting computers/mobile end devices will be logged. Further personal data will only be recorded if you as the user of the website and/or the customer/user of the app provide information voluntarily, for example in connection with an enquiry or registration or for the purpose of concluding a contract or via the settings of your browser or your mobile end device. 

3. Collected personal data
Personal data in the meaning of these data protection provisions is individual information on your personal or factual circumstances. It includes, in particular, your name, your email address, your telephone number and possibly your address, if you have provided us with it. 
The personal data also includes information on your use of our website. In this context we collect personal data from you as follows: information on your visits to our website or our Smartjobr app, for example the volume of the data transfer, the location from which you retrieve data from our website as well as other connection data and sources that you access. This generally occurs through the use of log files and cookies. You will find more detailed information on log files and cookies below. 

4. Intended use

2. To ensure that our website is presented to you in as effective and interesting a way as possible.

5. Information on your computer and cookies
Each time you access our website or our app we collect the following information through your computer/the mobile end device used by you – the IP address of your computer/the mobile end device, the request of your browser and the time of that request. We also record the status and the transferred volume of data in connection with that request, and we collect product and version information on the browser used and the operating system of your computer, as well as the mobile end device used on which you use our app and its software version. We also record the website from which our site has been accessed. The IP address of your computer/the mobile end device will only be stored for the period of your use of the website or the app and will then be promptly deleted or anonymised through abbreviation. The other data will be stored for a limit period of time. We use that data for the operation of our website and our app, particularly in order to identify and eliminate errors in the website or the app, to establish the capacity utilisation of the website or the app and to carry out adjustments or improvements. 

We may also collect information on your use of our website through the use of so-called “browser cookies”. These are small files which are stored on your data carrier and store certain settings and data to be exchanged with our system via your browser. As a rule, a cookie contains the name of the domain from which the cookie data was sent, information on the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identifier. Cookies enable our systems to recognise the user’s device and make any presets immediately available. As soon as a user accesses the platform, a cookie will be transmitted to the hard drive of the computer of the respective user. Cookies help us to improve our website and provide you with a better service which is more closely tailored to your needs. They enable us to recognise your computer if you return to our website and thus store information on your preferred activities on the website so that we can orient our website towards your individual interests. 

In the cookies used by us only the data explained above concerning your use of the website is stored. This occurs not by attribution to you personally but through the allocation of an identification number to the cookie (“cookie ID”). The cookie ID will not be combined with your name, your IP address or similar data which would make it possible to attribute the cookie to you. If you do not wish browser cookies to be used, you can set your browser so that storage of cookies is not accepted. But please note that if you do so you may not be able to use our website to the full extent or even at all.

6. Data backup
All information that you transmit to us will be stored on servers within the European Union. Unfortunately, transferring information via the Internet is not completely secure, so we cannot guarantee the security of the data transmitted to our website via the Internet. However, we protect our website and other systems through technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, accessing, alteration or dissemination of your data by unauthorised persons. In particular, we will transfer your personal data securely following encryption. We use for this purpose the coding systems SSL (Secure Socket Layer) or TLS (Transport Layer Security). 

7. Passing on/provision of your personal data
We will not provide your personal data to third parties unless you have agreed to the passing on/provision of data or if we are authorised or obliged to disclose data on the basis of provisions of law and/or official or court orders. In particular, your data may be provided for the purposes of concluding or performing contracts, in order to provide information for the purposes of criminal prosecution, for the purpose of averting hazards or for the enforcement of intellectual property rights. 
If we do not provide your data in such circumstances this may, for example, make it impossible to render contractual services or lead to extraordinary termination of the respective contract, claims for costs or compensation for losses (including through third parties) and/or fines or even criminal sanctions due to legal violations related to failure to provide the data, for you and/or us. 

8. Data protection and websites of other third parties
The website may contain, among other things, hyperlinks to and from websites of other third parties. If you follow a hyperlink to one of those websites, please note that in this context too we cannot accept any responsibility or provide any guarantee for third-party content or data protection provisions. Please therefore make sure of the respective applicable data protection provisions before you provide personal data to those third-party websites.
