Data Privacy Statement

General Information

The following information gives you a clear overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit our website. Personal data is all data with which you can be personally identified.

You will find detailed information on the subject of data protection in the further explanations in this declaration. If we have not been able to answer all your questions, please contact our data protection officer (datenschutz@mit.de).

On the one hand, your data is collected by you communicating it to us. This may, for example, involve data that you have entered in one of our contact forms.
Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit our website. This is primarily technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of page call). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
Some of this data is collected to ensure that the website is error-free. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour (if you have actively agreed to this on our cookie banner).

You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored data free of charge at any time. You also have the right to rectification, the right to restriction of processing, and the right to erasure your data. You can contact us at any time at datenschutz@mit.de and to the address given in the imprint for this and other questions on the subject of data protection. Furthermore, you have the right to appeal to the responsible.

When you visit our website, your surfing behaviour can be statistically evaluated if you have activated this option on our cookie banner. This is done primarily with cookies and so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is anonymous; the surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis, the storage and use of your data at any time by deactivating the options in our cookie settings. See further information in this data protection declaration.
We use “Matomo” for analysis. The tool itself, all evaluations and data are stored on our own servers.
Because of reconstruction measures we additionally use the analysis tool from Google “Google Analytics”.

Compulsory Information

When you use this website, various personal data is collected. Personal information is information that personally identifies you. This Privacy Policy explains what information we collect and how we use it. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

The responsible body for data processing on this website is:
M.I.T e-Solutions GmbH
Am Houiller Platz 4c
61381 Friedrichsdorf
marketing@mit.de.

The operational data security officer can be contacted for all questions regarding data security at the above-mentioned address with the suffix “for the attention of the data security officer” or by e-mail at datenschutz@mit.de. Find further particulars in the imprint.

Explanation: The responsible body is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Your Rights

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal e-mail notification to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

In the event of violations of data protection, the person concerned shall have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority. The responsible supervisory authority for data protection issues is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based:
The responsible supervisory authority for M.I.T e-Solutions GmbH is – Der Hessische Datenschutzbeauftragte Gustav-Stresemann-Ring 1, 65021 Wiesbaden, e-mail to poststelle@datenschutz.hessen.de.

You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will only be done as far as it is technically feasible.
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as site operator. 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 line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Within the scope of legal provisions, you have at any time the right to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, restriction or erasure of these data.

You can contact us for this and other questions on the subject of personal data at any time at the address given in the imprint.

Data collection on our website

Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them.
These cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser.
If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
Cookies that are necessary for the electronic communication process are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. Provided other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, you will find closer information in this data protection declaration.

The operator of the Website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

Visited Website – Time of access – Amount of data sent in bytes – Source/reference from which you came to the page – Browser used – Operating system used – IP address used

The collected data is only used for troubleshooting and to improve the website. The server log files are completely deleted after 2 weeks, unless there are concrete indications of illegal use.
This data will not be merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

If you send us enquiries via contact form, your details from the enquiry form including the contact data you provided there will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. These data will not be passed on without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. To do this, simply send an informal e-mail to datenschutz@mit.de. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application process. The processing can also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to us electronically, for example by e-mail.
If an employment contract is concluded 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 automatically deleted six months after notification of the rejection decision, unless deletion conflicts with any other legitimate interests of the data controller or you have actively consented to further use in our applicant database for future projects.
Please note that transmission by e-mail is not automatically encrypted. Alternatively, you can send your request by post to M.I.T e-Solutions GmbH, Am Houiller Platz 4c, D-61381 Friedrichsdorf, Germany.

Social Media

On our website we offer the possibility to share content via external links in social networks or by mail. We realize this via social bookmarks. These are buttons which can be recognized by the logo of the respective social network. The plugin establishes a connection between your browser and the servers of the respective provider. If you have selected ‘Accept all services’ on our cookie banner, or if you have activated social media in the cookie settings, you will usually be forwarded to the provider’s pages and the corresponding user information will be passed on.

If, while using our site, you are logged into one of these social networks with your account and wish to share our content, this information will be linked to your respective account. There is also a possibility that your IP address may be read. We as operators have no influence on the data, which is transmitted by Plug-Ins to appropriate servers.

We also use AdWords to be found via Google search.
AdWords is an advertising program of the American search engine operator Google. The term is composed of the two English terms adverts for advertisements and words for words. The basic idea behind AdWords is that advertising in Google’s advertising networks should automatically be displayed to match the content of the displaying website and can thus be targeted precisely.
With its search network and video portal YouTube, Google itself owns some of the most frequently visited offers on the Internet. The company also uses AdSense to operate a large advertising network that recruits advertising space from third-party providers. Ads in Google’s own search network are shown on these offers, among others: Google search, Google maps, Google pictures.

If you click on the video, your IP address will be transmitted to YouTube and YouTube will know that you have watched the video. If you are logged in to YouTube, this information will also be assigned to your user account (you can prevent this by logging out of YouTube before viewing the video).
We are not aware of or have any influence on the collection and use of your data by YouTube. Further information can be found in YouTube’s privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.
