General information about data processing 

Scope of processing for personal data 

We exclusively collect, process and use your personal data in compliance with the relevant data protection provisions and to the extent that this is necessary.  

As a rule, it is possible to use our website without providing personal data. In addition, we do not perform any profiling activities. To the extent that personal data (for instance name, mailing address or email addresses) is collected on our pages, this always takes place on  voluntary basis where possible. This data will not be shared with third parties without your explicit consent. 

If we use service providers to perform and handle data processing, they are subject to the same strict rules in order to fulfill data protection laws.  

Please note that data transmission via the internet (e.g. during email communications) may be subject to security gaps. It is not possible to seamlessly protect data from third-party access. 

 

Legal basis for processing personal data 

If we obtain consent from the data subject for processing personal data, Art. 6 Sec. 1 lt. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. 

For processing personal data that is required in order to fulfill a contract whose party is the data subject, Art. 6 Sec. 1 lt. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing transactions that are necessary in order to perform pre-contractual measures. 

If processing of personal data is necessary in order to fulfill a legal obligation, Art. 6 Sec. 1 lt. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. 

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Sec. 1 lt. d GDPR serves as the legal basis. 

If processing is necessary in order to protect a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, and if the data subject’s interests, basic rights and freedoms do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 Sec. 1 lt. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing. 

 

Erasure and blocking of personal data 

We follow the principles of data avoidance and data minimization. We only store your personal data for as long as this is required to achieve the purposes named herein, or according to the storage periods established by law. Once the respective purpose no longer applies and/or after the end of these periods, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or erased according to the statutory provisions. 

 

Sharing of personal data 

Under no circumstances will we share your personal data with third parties for advertising or marketing purposes, or without authorization for any other purpose. Your data will only be shared with third parties where this is permitted by law or where you have consented to such sharing. 

 

Please note that operators of pages that have links integrated into http://www.hackadon.de/ can store and analyze data regarding visitors to the page. This also applies to pages operated by brigk – Digitales Gründerzentrum der Region Ingolstadt GmbH on external servers, such as Facebook or YouTube. Please observe the data protection information on the respective pages. 

 

Contact 

If you contact us via email, we will store your information from the email (name, email address, phone number, subject, free text field) in order to process the inquiry as well as for potential follow-up questions.  

 

Collection, processing and use of usage data for the web pages  

 

Description and scope of data processing 

When visitors access our web pages, the brigk web servers temporarily save this information in a log file. Until it is erased automatically, we collect and store the following data: 

  • IP address of the accessing computer 
  • Date and time of access 
  • Name and URL of requested data 
  • Access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.) 
  • Web browser and operating system used  
  • Website from which our homepage was accessed  
  • Volume of data transmitted  

We save this data to provide technical security, in particular to prevent attempted attacks on our web server and to monitor misuse in the event of a suspected criminal offense or to investigate suspected offenses. The IP address will only be analyzed in the event of an attack on our network infrastructure. Usage data stored by the servers is not linked with any natural person.  

 

Legal basis for data processing 

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 Sec. 1 lt. f GDPR. 

Purpose of data processing 

Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to allow the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. To this end, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session. Data is stored in log files in order to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our IT systems. The data is not analyzed for marketing purposes in this context. This purpose also constitutes our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 Sec. 1 lt. f GDPR. 

Storage period 

Data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. If data is collected in order to make the website available, this is the case when the respective session ends. If data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the most. Longer storage is possible. In this case, the user’s IP address will be erased or modified so that the accessing client can no longer be identified. 

Objection and removal right 

Collecting data in order to make the website available and saving this data in log files is mandatory in order to operate the website. Therefore the user does not have a right to object to this.

Integration of social plugins (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) 

Integrating social plugins means that simply accessing the site with the integrated plugin – even without clicking on the social plugin – allows your IP address to be documented by these services. Accordingly, the services can also track your further activities online. 

In order to prevent this and to better protect your privacy, our website uses the 2-click method. Our site only embeds disabled buttons that do not automatically establish contact with the services associated with the social plugins, so they do not transmit any data when our website is accessed.  

The button is only enabled if you click on it and agree to communicate with Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. 

Facebook and Instagram 

Our pages integrate plugins provided by the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, United States, and Instagram LLC, represented by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, 1601 Willow Rd, Menlo Park CA 94025, United States. You can identify the Facebook and Instagram plugins by the Facebook and/or Instagram logo on our page. An overview of Facebook plugins can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/ When you visit our pages, the plugin creates a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook and/or Instagram server. Facebook and/or Instagram then receives the information that you visited our page, with your IP address. If you click on the Facebook and/or Instagram button while you are logged in to your Facebook and/or Instagram account, you can link the content of our pages to your Facebook profile and/or your Instagram account. This allows Facebook and/or Instagram to associate your visit to our pages with your user account. Please note that as the website provider, we do not receive any information about the content of the transmitted data or how it is used by Facebook and/or Instagram. More information about this can be found in Facebook’s Data Policy under https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php and Instagram’s Data Policy under https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875?helpref=page_content. 

If you do not want Facebook or Instagram to associate your visit to our site with your Facebook and/or Instagram account, please log out of the respective account. 

Twitter 

Functions from the Twitter service are integrated into our pages. These functions are provided by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, United States. By using Twitter and the “Retweet” function, the web pages you visit are linked to your Twitter account and shared with other users. In the process, data is also transmitted to Twitter. Please note that as the website provider, we do not receive any information about the content of the transmitted data or how it is used by Twitter. More information about this can be found in Twitter’s Privacy Policy under http://twitter.com/privacy. You can change your data privacy settings for Twitter in the account settings under http://twitter.com/account/settings.

Where processing of your personal data has been restricted, this data – with the exception of storage – shall only be processed with your consent or in order to establish, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.  

If processing has been restricted according to the abovementioned requirements, you shall be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted. 

 

Right to erasure 
  1. a) Erasure obligation

You have the right to obtain from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data concerning you, and the controller shall have the obligation to erase this data immediately where one of the following grounds applies: 

(1) Your personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.

(2) to comply with a legal obligation that requires processing under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;

Right to notification  

If you have asserted your right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the controller, the controller is obligated to notify all recipients to whom your personal data was disclosed about this rectification or erasure of data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.

(2) the processing is carried out by automated means. 

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have your personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This shall not adversely affect the freedoms or rights of other persons. 

The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data that is necessary to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller. 

 

Right to object 

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you that is based on Art. 6 Sec. 1 lt. e or f GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.
