  1. Data Collected, Purpose of Data Processing, and Legal Basis

Each time a user visits a page on the SysEleven website and each time a file is accessed, data about this event is stored in a log file. Depending on the type of access log used, the log file may contain the following information:

Such analyses are only carried out by authorized employees of SysEleven.

  1. Use of Cookies

We use cookies when you visit our website. Cookies are small text files placed on your device by our web application that allow us to identify your web browser. Most browsers are set so that they automatically accept cookies. You have the ability to deactivate cookies, however, or set your browser so that it informs you about the use of cookies.

The data stored in cookies is not used to identify you personally.

Persistent cookies are stored on your device for one month and ensure that you can use our website as smoothly as possible, even after your current visit. We use them for the purpose of displaying personalized content to you.

If you do not wish to allow persistent cookies to be saved on your device, you can deactivate them in your browser. Please refer to your browser’s help section to learn how to deactivate these cookies. Deactivating these cookies has no impact on your ability to use our site.

Session cookies are only stored on your system until you end your current browser session. They are used to ensure that you can use the features of our website without limitation during your current visit to our site. This data is anonymized so that you are not personally identifiable.

If you do not wish to allow session cookies to be saved on your device, you can deactivate them in your browser. Please refer to your browser’s help section to learn how to deactivate these cookies.

If you deactivate session cookies, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to use all of our website’s features without limitation.

  1. Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”), on our website. The information generated by the cookie pertaining to your use of this website is usually transmitted to and stored on a server operated by Google located within the United States. If IP anonymization is enabled on this website, Google will, however, shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transferring it to the United States. Your complete IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. Google then uses this data on behalf of this website’s owner to analyze your use of the website, create reports that show and explain user activity on this website, and to provide additional services associated with the use of the website and internet use to the website owner. The IP address transmitted from your browser to Google Analytics is not combined with any other data from Google. You can prevent these cookies from being stored on your device by adjusting your browser’s settings. You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookie related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

The Google Analytics terms of service can be found here: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Further information about privacy at Google and additional terms can be found here: https://policies.google.com/ .

We would like to point out that we have added the “anonymizeIp” code to Google Analytics on this website in order to ensure that IP addresses are collected anonymously (known as IP masking).

  1. Google Ads with Conversion Tracking

We use the advertising platform Google Ads and have implemented Google Ads conversion tracking on our website. This service is provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”.

Google is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield:

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

This certification means that Google guarantees that it also observes the EU’s data protection requirements when data is processed in the United States.

We use conversion tracking to help us understand how effective our digital advertising campaigns are. The legal basis is Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization, and cost-effective operation of our website.

If you click on an advertisement hosted on the Google Ads platform, the conversion tracking method we use saves a cookie on your device. These conversion cookies expire after 30 days and do not serve to identify you personally.

If the cookie is still valid and you visit a certain page on our website, both we and Google can determine whether you clicked on one of our ads displayed by Google and were subsequently redirected to our website.

Google uses the information collected in this way to compile statistics on visits to our website. In addition, we also receive information about the number of users who clicked on our ad(s) and about the pages of our website that were subsequently visited. Neither we nor third parties who also use Google Ads are able to personally identify you through this information.

You can also prevent or restrict these cookies from being stored on your device by changing the settings in your browser. Furthermore, you can delete cookies that have already been saved at any time. The necessary steps required to do so depend on the type of browser you are using, however. If you have any questions, please refer to your browser’s help section or documentation or contact the browser’s manufacturer or support.

In addition, the following Google websites:

https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html

http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/

http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

provide additional information on this topic and, in particular, information about how to prevent your data from being collected and processed.

  1. Facebook Plug-Ins

We use the plug-in from the social network Facebook on our website. Facebook is an online service provided by facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. In the EU, this service is operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. Both companies are hereinafter referred to as “Facebook”.

Facebook is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield:
https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active

This certification means Facebook guarantees that it also observes the EU’s data protection requirements when data is processed in the United States.
The legal basis is Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our website.
Further information about the available plug-ins and their respective features can be found on Facebook at
https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

If the plug-in is installed on one of the pages of our website that you visit, your browser will download a version of the plug-in from Facebook’s servers in the United States. For technical reasons, Facebook needs to process your IP address for this purpose. In addition, the date and time of your visit to our website are also recorded.

If you are logged in to Facebook while visiting one of our pages with the plug-in installed, the information collected by the plug-in about your specific visit will be recognized by Facebook. Facebook may associate the information it collects with your personal Facebook account. If, for example, you use the “Like” button on Facebook, this information is stored in your Facebook account and may be posted on the Facebook platform. If you want to prevent this, you must either log out of Facebook before visiting our website or prevent the Facebook plug-in from loading by using an add-on for your browser that blocks it.

We use the “Facebook Pixel” from Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). By accessing this pixel from your browser, Facebook can recognize whether a Facebook ad was successful, e.g. whether it led to an online purchase. In this context, Facebook only provides us with statistical data without making reference to any specific individual. This allows us to measure the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes. For more information, please see Facebook’s privacy policy, particularly if you have a Facebook account and visit websites while logged in to your Facebook account:https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Please visit www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads if you would like to revoke your consent to the use of the Facebook Pixel.

Facebook provides further information about its collection and use of data as well as your rights and protection options in this regard in its privacy policy, which can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

  1. LinkedIn Plug-In

Our website uses features provided by the LinkedIn network. This service is provided by the LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Each time you access one of our pages that contains LinkedIn features, a connection is established to LinkedIn servers. LinkedIn is informed that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click the LinkedIn “Recommend” button and are logged into your LinkedIn account, LinkedIn will be able to associate your visit to our website with you and your user account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of the website, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or its use by LinkedIn.

We use the “LinkedIn Insight Tag” from LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, to track conversions and user actions on our website. By accessing this tag from your browser, LinkedIn can recognize whether a LinkedIn ad was successful, e.g. whether it led to an online purchase. In this context, LinkedIn only provides us with statistical data without making reference to any specific individual. This allows us to measure the effectiveness of LinkedIn advertisements for statistical and market research purposes.

For more information, please refer to LinkedIn’s privacy policy: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy

The encryption method used corresponds to the current state of the art. SSL encryption (recognizable by the appearance of https:// in the browser’s address bar and a lock symbol in the status bar at the bottom of the browser) is a protocol for encrypting data transmitted from the web server to the browser. Personal data is encrypted during transfer between the user’s device and our SSL server using the SSL protocol.
