Use of Cookies

On our website, information is collected and stored by the use of so-called browser cookies.

What are Cookies?

A cookie usually contains the name of the domain from which the cookie data was sent, as well as information about the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identifier.

Why do we use Cookies?

Cookies allow our systems to recognize the user’s device and make any presets available immediately. As soon as a user accesses the platform, a cookie is transmitted to the hard disk of the user’s computer. Cookies help us improve our website and offer you a better and more personalized service. They enable us to recognize your computer or your (mobile) device when you return to our website and thereby:

  • Store information about your favorite activities on the website, thus tailoring our website to your individual interests.
  • Accelerate the speed of processing your requests.

We work with third party services that help us to make the website and its offers more interesting to you.

Can I control the use of Cookies?

If you do not wish to use browser cookies, you can set your browser so that the storage of cookies is not accepted. Please note that in this case you may be able to use our website only partially or not at all. If you only want to accept our own cookies, but not the cookies of our service providers and partners, you can choose the setting in your browser "block third-party cookies". We assume no responsibility for the use of third party cookies.

9. Integration of Services and Content of Third Parties

Our website uses content and services of third parties. These are, for example, videos provided by Vimeo. In order for these data to be accessed and displayed in the user’s browser, the transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary. The providers (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") thus are aware of the IP address of the respective user.

Although we strive to use only third-party providers who solely need the IP address to deliver content, we have no control over whether the IP address may be stored. This process might be used, inter alia, for statistical purposes. If we become aware that the IP address is being stored, we will inform you.

Use of HubSpot

This website uses HubSpot for customer coordination and marketing activities. HubSpot Inc. is a software company in the USA (https://www.hubspot.com/, 25 First Street, 2nd Floor, Cambridge, MA 02141 USA) We use this integrated software solution for our own marketing, lead generation and customer service purposes. These include email marketing, which controls the sending of newsletters and automated mailings, social media publishing and reporting, contact management such as user segmentation and CRM, landing pages and contact forms. HubSpot uses cookies, which are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of your web browser on your device and allow us to analyze your use of the site. The information collected (e.g., IP address, geographic location, browser type, length of visit and pages viewed) is analyzed by HubSpot on our behalf so that we can generate reports about the visit and the pages visited. Information collected by HubSpot and the content of our websites solutions.reg.tech, knowledge.reg.tech and email.reg.tech is stored on servers of HubSpot’s service providers. If you have given your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR), the processing on these websites is for the purpose of website analysis.

HubSpot’s tracking code sets a number of tracking cookies when a visitor lands on our website. These cookies have different lifetimes. Some may remain valid for up to 2 years while others expire at the end of the session.

You can permanently object to the collection of data by HubSpot and the setting of cookies by preventing the storage of cookies through your browser settings. For more information about how HubSpot works, please refer to HubSpot’s Product Privacy Policy, available at https://legal.hubspot.com/product-privacy-policy.

Use of Vimeo

For the integration and presentation of video content, our website uses plugins from Vimeo. Provider of the video portal is the Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.

When a page with integrated Vimeo plugin is viewed, a connection to the servers of Vimeo is established. Vimeo learns by this which of our pages you have viewed. Vimeo learns your IP address, even if you are not logged in to the Vimeo portal or do not have an account there. The information collected by Vimeo is transmitted to servers of the video portal in the USA. Vimeo can assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. By logging out beforehand you have the option of preventing this. The use of Vimeo is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

For details on how user information is handled, see the Vimeo Privacy Policy.

Use of YouTube

For the integration and presentation of video content, our website uses plugins from the Google-powered YouTube page. Provider of the video portal is the YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with an integrated YouTube plug-in, it will connect to YouTube’s servers.

YouTube will find out which of our sites you’ve visited. YouTube can directly map your browsing behavior to your personal profile, should you be logged into your YouTube account. By logging out beforehand you have the option to prevent this.

The use of YouTube is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

For details on how user information is handled, please refer to the YouTube Privacy Policy.

Use of Cloudflare Our website uses the services of Cloudflare Inc. (USA) for secure encrypted data transmission on the Internet (SSL), to improve worldwide website performance through the Cloudflare Content Delivery Network (CDN) and to improve security and protection against hacker attacks through the Cloudflare Web Application Firewall (WAF). It is possible that Cloudflare uses its own cookies to provide these services. With Cloudflare a corresponding GDPR-compliant contract for commissioned data processing exists. More detailed information about GDPR and Cloudflare can be found on the GDPR pages of Cloudflare: www.cloudflare.com/de-de/gdpr/introduction/ 

a) What is Cloudflare?  A Content Delivery Network (CDN), as provided by Cloudflare, is nothing more than a network of servers connected via the Internet. Cloudflare has distributed such servers all over the world to bring websites faster to your screen. Simply put, Cloudflare makes copies of our website and places them on their own servers. When you visit our website now, a load balancing system ensures that the majority of our website is delivered from the server that can display our website the fastest. The distance of the data transfer to your browser is considerably shortened by a CDN. Thus the content of our website is delivered to you by Cloudflare not only from our hosting server, but from servers all over the world. The use of Cloudflare is especially helpful for users from abroad, because here the page can be delivered from a server nearby. Besides the fast delivery of websites Cloudflare also offers various security services like DDoS protection or the Web Application Firewall. 

b) Why we use Cloudflare on our website?  Of course we want to offer you the best possible service with our website. Cloudflare helps us to make our website faster and more secure. Cloudflare offers us web optimizations as well as security services such as DDoS protection and web firewall. This includes a reverse proxy and the content distribution network (CDN). Cloudflare blocks threats and limits abusive bots and crawlers that waste our bandwidth and server resources. By storing our website in local data centers and blocking spam software, Cloudflare allows us to reduce our bandwidth usage by about 60%. Delivering content from a data center near you and some web optimizations performed there reduces the average loading time of a website by about half. According to Cloudflare, the setting "I’m Under Attack Mode" can be used to mitigate further attacks by displaying a JavaScript calculation task that must be solved before a user can access a web page. Overall, this makes our website much more powerful and less susceptible to spam or other attacks. 

c) Which data is stored by Cloudflare?  Cloudflare generally only forwards those data that are controlled by website operators. The contents are therefore not determined by Cloudflare, but always by the website operator himself. In addition, Cloudflare may collect certain information about the use of our website and process data that is sent by us or for which Cloudflare has received appropriate instructions. In most cases, cloudflare receives data such as contact information, IP addresses, security fingerprints, DNS protocol data and performance data for web pages derived from browser activity. For example, log data helps cloudflare to detect new threats. So Cloudflare can guarantee a high security protection for our website. Cloudflare processes these data within the framework of the services in compliance with the applicable laws. This naturally includes the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).  For security reasons Cloudflare also uses a cookie. The cookie (__cfduid) is used to identify individual users behind a shared IP address and to apply security settings for each individual user. This cookie is very useful, for example, if you use our website from a location where there are a number of infected computers. However, if your computer is trustworthy, we can recognize this by the cookie. So you can surf through our website unhindered, despite infected PCs in the area. It is also important to know that this cookie does not store any personal data. This cookie is essential for the cloudflare security features and cannot be disabled.  Cloudflare also works together with third party providers. They may only process personal data under instructions from Cloudflare and in accordance with the privacy policy and other confidentiality and security measures. Cloudflare will not pass on any personal data without our explicit consent.  

d) How long and where is the data stored?   Cloudflare stores your information mainly in the USA and the European Economic Area. Cloudflare can transmit and access the above described information from all over the world. In general, Cloudflare stores user-level data for domains in the Free, Pro and Business versions for less than 24 hours. 

e) How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?  Cloudflare keeps data logs only as long as necessary and in most cases these data are deleted within 24 hours. Cloudflare also does not store any personal data, such as your IP address. However, there is information that Cloudflare stores indefinitely as part of its permanent logs to improve the overall performance of Cloudflare Resolver and to identify any security risks. You can find out exactly which permanent logs are saved at developers.cloudflare.com/1.1.1.1/commitment-to-privacy/privacy-policy/privacy-policy/. All data that Cloudflare collects (temporary or permanent) will be cleaned from all personal data. All permanent logs are also anonymized by Cloudflare.  Cloudflare will mention in your privacy policy that they are not responsible for the content they receive. For example, if you ask Cloudflare whether they can update or delete your content, Cloudflare always refers to us as the website operator. You can also completely prevent the entire collection and processing of your data by Cloudflare by deactivating the execution of script code in your browser or by including a script blocker in your browser.  Cloudflare is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information on www.privacyshield.gov/participant. 

WordPress We use WordPress.com, a website building system, for our website. The service provider is the American company Automattic Inc, 60 29th Street #343, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA. WordPress also processes data from you in the USA, among other places. We would like to point out that according to the opinion of the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for the transfer of data to the USA. This may be accompanied by various risks to the legality and security of data processing.   As a basis for data processing with recipients located in third countries (outside the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, thus especially in the USA) or a data transfer there, WordPress uses so-called standard contractual clauses (= Art. 46. para. 2 and 3 DSGVO). Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) are templates provided by the EU Commission and are intended to ensure that your data complies with European data protection standards even if it is transferred to third countries (such as the USA) and stored there. Through these clauses, WordPress undertakes to comply with the European level of data protection when processing your relevant data, even if the data is stored, processed and managed in the USA. These clauses are based on an implementing decision of the EU Commission. You can find the decision and the corresponding standard contractual clauses here, among other places: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj?locale=de  The Data Processing Agreements, which correspond to the standard contractual clauses, can be found at https://wordpress.com/support/data-processing-agreements/.To learn more about the data processed through the use of WordPress.com, please see the Privacy Policy at https://automattic.com/de/privacy/.

10. Data Security

Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the Internet is never 100% secure, which is why we can not guarantee the security of data transmitted via the Internet to our website.

However, we secure our website through technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, modification or dissemination of your data by unauthorized persons.

In particular, your personal data is encrypted with us. We use the SSL / TLS (Secure Sockets Layer / Transport Layer Security) coding system. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

11. Contact

You can contact us by e-mail or via our contact form. In this case, we will store the personal data you provide to process your request and to contact you with respect to your request. These data will be transmitted to us on a purely voluntary basis. A passing on of the personal data communicated to us in this way to third parties does not take place.

Please address your right of erasure for effective and rapid processing via e-mail to [email protected] or by mail to Konux Inc., 580 California Street, Suite 1200, San Francisco, CA 94104, USA.

13. Disclosure of your Personal Data

The transfer of your personal data takes place as described below.

Website Hoster The website is hosted by an external service provider in Germany. In doing so, we ensure that data processing takes place in Germany alone. This is necessary for the operation of the website, as well as for the establishment, implementation and execution of the existing user contract and also without your consent.

In addition, disclosure shall take place if we are entitled or obliged to forward data due to statutory provisions and / or official or judicial orders. This may, in particular, be the provision of information for law enforcement purposes, security or enforcement of intellectual property rights.

Insofar as your data is passed on to service providers to the required extent, they will only have access to your personal data to the extent necessary to fulfill their duties. These service providers are obliged to treat your personal data in accordance with the applicable data protection laws, in particular the GDPR.

13.1 Candidate personal data / HR data

Also, the personal data that you have disclosed or transferred to us – applying for a open position as a candidat – will be processed in our HR portal, which is made available to us by Greenhouse Software, Inc., (“Greenhouse”) located outside EU/EEA in USA. Accordingly transfer of personal data to a third country will take place. In case of third country transfer to Greenhouse, the appropriate or suitable safeguards are the use of the U.S.-EU Data Protection Framework (https://www.greenhouse.com/privacy-policy).

14. Storage Period for the Personal Data

With regard to the storage period, we delete personal data as soon as their storage is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the original purpose and there are no longer any statutory retention periods. The statutory retention periods ultimately form the criterion for the final duration of the storage of personal data. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted. If retention periods exist, processing is restricted by blocking the data.

15. References and Links

When accessing websites referred to on our website, you may again be asked for information such as name, address, e-mail address, browser properties, etc. This privacy policy does not govern the collection, transfer or handling of personal data by third parties.

Third party service providers may have different and separate terms in dealing with the collection, processing and use of personal data. It is therefore advised to check the websites of third parties about their practice for the handling of personal data before entering personal data.

16. Amendments of the Privacy Policy

We are constantly developing our website further to provide you with an ever-improving service. We will always keep this privacy policy up-to-date and adjust it accordingly, if and as far as necessary.

Of course, we will inform you in good time about any changes to this privacy policy. We will do this, e.g. by e-mail to the e-mail address you have given us.
