AdWords (remarketing / conversion tracking)

Our website uses the Google AdWords service. Google AdWords is an online advertising program provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google AdWords is used to show advertisements to users based on their interests. Google collects anonymous evaluations via cookies in order to be able to present the most targeted advertising possible. Cookies make it possible to recognise returning website visitors (by identifying the respective web browser used) without making unique personal identification possible. We also use conversion tracking when using the Google AdWords service. When you click on an ad delivered by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is placed on your device. These cookies expire after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and can therefore not be used for personal identification. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers. The legal basis for using Google AdWords is Section 6, Paragraph 1 f of the GDPR. You can disable the use of cookies by Google by following the link below and downloading and installing the plug-in provided there: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. You may also disable interest-based ads on Google and interest-based Google ads on the web (within the Google display network) in your browser by clicking on the “Off” button at http://www.google.de/settings/ads or by disabling them at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.  For more information about Google AdWords and Google's privacy policy, please visit http://www.google.com/privacy/ads/.

Social media plug-ins

This website links to the company profile of IQDoQ GmbH on various social media platforms. If you are signed in to these platforms, they may collect personal data when you click on the link. The legal basis for using the plug-ins is Section 6, Paragraphs 1 a and f of the GDPR. After activation, the plug-ins also collect personal data such as your IP address and send it to the servers of the respective provider, where it is stored. Enabled social plug-ins also set a cookie with a unique identifier when the respective website is called up, which also allows providers to create profiles of their usage behaviour. This also happens if you are not a member of the social network of the respective provider. If you are a member of the provider’s social network and you are signed in to the social network during your visit to this website, your data and information about your visit to this website may be linked to your profile on the social network. We have no influence on the exact extent of the data collected about you by the respective provider. For more information on the scope, type and purpose of data collection, and on your rights and how you can change your settings to protect your privacy, please refer to the data protection information of the respective social network provider.

Applications

You can apply for a position at our company online via our application portal. Your online application will be forwarded directly to our HR department through an encrypted connection and will, of course, be treated confidentially. As a matter of course, we will use your details exclusively for processing your application and will not pass them on to third parties. Further information on data processing in the context of the application process can be found in the privacy policy of our application portal: https://www.onapply.de/datenschutz.

Please note that unencrypted emails are not normally transmitted with access protection.

If you have applied for a specific position and it has already been filled or if we consider you suitable for another position, we would like to forward your application within the company. Please let us know if you do not consent to us forwarding your application. Your personal data will be deleted immediately after completion of the application process or after a maximum of 6 months, unless you have expressly given us your consent to store your data for longer or a contract has been concluded. The legal basis for this is Section 6, Paragraphs 1 a, b and f of the GDPR, and Section 26 BDSG.

Transmission of data

Your data is not transferred to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so, or if the transmission of data is necessary for the execution of the contractual relationship, or if you have previously expressly consented to the transmission of your data. External service providers and partner companies such as online payment providers or the shipping company commissioned with the delivery will only receive your data if this is necessary to process your order. In these cases, however, the extent of the transmitted data is limited to the required minimum. As far as our service providers come into contact with your personal data, we ensure within the scope of order processing according to Section 28 DSGVO that they comply with the provisions of the data protection laws in the same way. Please also note the respective data protection policies of the providers. The respective service provider is responsible for the content of external services, whereby we check the compliance of the services with the legal requirements to the extent reasonable. It is important to us to process your data within the EU/EEA. However, we may use service providers who process data outside the EU/EEA. In these cases, we ensure that an appropriate level of data protection is provided by the recipient prior to the transmission of your personal data. This means that a data protection level comparable to the standards within the EU is achieved through EU standard contracts or an adequacy decision such as the EU Privacy Shield.

Data security

We have taken extensive technical and operational precautions to protect your data from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security procedures are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress.
