Contacting the Data Protection Officer (applies to everyone)

We reserve the right to amend this data protection notice on occasion to ensure that it always complies with the latest legal requirements or to make changes to our services in the data protection notice, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection notice will then apply for your next visit.

 

Website data protection notice

It is possible to use our web pages without revealing your identity. If you are asked for personal data (name, address or e-mail address) on our website – for example when applying/registering for AGEH newsletters, courses, etc. – this is provided on a voluntary basis. We use this information for our own business purposes, such as sending requested materials or information.

Once you have given your consent – for example to be sent a newsletter or other interesting information from our organisation – you can revoke this consent at any time with future effect without having to specify reasons. To do so, you can use our contact e-mail address or another means specified in the newsletter.

Cookies

This website uses “cookies”, i.e. text files placed on your computer to analyse how you use the website. You can change your browser settings to prevent cookies from being installed. In some cases, this will mean that you cannot make full use of the website. A cookie containing the current login is used for the protected area and is deleted again after logout.

Logging

Whenever the website is accessed, logs are created and processed for statistical purposes, with individual users remaining anonymous:

  • Referrer (the page containing the link that led you to this website)
  • Search terms (classified as referrers in the case of search engines)
  • IP is analysed to determine the country of origin and the provider
  • Browser, operating system, installed plug-ins and screen resolution
  • Time spent on the pages

Based on our justified interest in accordance with section 53(1) of the Church Data Protection Act (KDG), we process the aforementioned data for the following purposes:

  • To establish a smooth connection for the website
  • To ensure a user-friendly website design
  • To evaluate system security and stability
  • For other administrative purposes.

We reserve the right to examine this data at a later date if we have specific indications of unlawful use. The data will be deleted immediately if it is no longer required for the purpose in question, or after six months at the latest.

Liability for own content

The contents of these pages have been assembled with the greatest of care. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee that the information presented here is accurate, complete and up to date. As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on this website under prevailing law.

Liability for links (content of third-party providers)

A distinction should be made between our own content and links to content made available by other providers. We have no influence on their content; providers or operators of linked websites are always responsible for their own content.

Data protection when subscribing to a newsletter

At various places on our website, you have the option of ordering a newsletter. We will process your personal data exclusively in connection with this order and the subscription to our newsletter in order to be able to send you information from AGEH every month or so. This newsletter contains for example job offers, profiles of AGEH experts and reports from projects and from AGEH. You can cancel this subscription at any time with effect for the future.

Open and click rates are analysed for statistical purposes in order to gauge the impact and popularity of the newsletter features. However, this data will be processed pseudonymously without any connection to your person.

The data (e-mail address) that you have made available is required for sending the newsletter. Without this data, we will not be able to subscribe you to the newsletter.

External service providers

In order to send our newsletter, we enlist the services of a company called engine-productions, which has access to your data for contract data processing in accordance with section 29 of the Church Data Protection Act (KDG). Here, the service provider is bound by contractually agreed instructions.

Retaining and deleting data

The data is retained until such time as you cancel your subscription to the newsletter.

Data protection in connection with job applications

We process your personal data in connection with processing your job application and in order to determine your suitability for the position in question. In this connection, we process the information that you made available for the purposes of making an in-depth personnel decision based on section 53(1) of the Church Data Protection Act (KDG). In addition, assessments/ratings are also stored based on objective, non-discriminatory criteria; insofar as this is permissible in individual cases, publicly accessible personal data about your person will also be stored.

The data you have provided is necessary for carrying out the application procedure. Without this data, we will not be able to consider your application.

You can register with a personal login within the protected area on our website. With every login, logs are created and processed for statistical purposes. Logs contain the following information:

  • Referrer (the page containing the link that led you to this website)
  • Search terms (classified as referrers in the case of search engines)
  • We store the IP address of the website visitor in connection with the online application or updating. The related IP address will be permanently anonymised when the application data is deleted at a later stage.
  • The server access logs will be saved for no more than 7 weeks and will not be associated with any other personal data.

Based on our justified interest in accordance with section 53(1) of the Church Data Protection Act (KDG), we process the aforementioned data for the following purposes:

  • To establish a smooth connection for the website
  • To ensure a user-friendly website design
  • To evaluate system security and stability
  • For other administrative purposes.

We reserve the right to examine this data at a later date if we have specific indications of unlawful use. The data will be deleted immediately if it is no longer required for the purpose in question, or after six months at the latest.

Passing on data/service providers

In order to help us in personnel selection procedures, personal data is passed on to our clients, who are named in the relevant job vacancies, and to external course providers for the purposes of aiding preparation. In some cases, external IT service providers can access your data. In all cases, service providers are bound by contractually agreed instructions. All of these service providers and clients are based within the EU/EEA.

We will only pass on your personal data to possible employers in the partner countries if you have given your consent to this and only if we are suggesting you as a possible candidate for a vacant position. We cannot guarantee or determine whether these employers outside the EU enter into EU standard contract clauses/binding corporate rules and ensure an adequate level of data protection.

Retaining and deleting data

Your data will only be kept for as long as is necessary for the aforementioned personnel selection procedure. If you revoke your consent to your data being processed during the personnel selection procedure, the data will be deleted unless we are required by law to retain it.

The data is then deleted after the end of the application process and after the expiry of any appeal periods unless you have given your consent to your application being stored for further vacancies. Speculative applications will be saved until such time as you revoke them or for a period of up to two years, after which they are deleted.

Data protection when signing up for seminars

We process your personal data in connection with participation in a seminar. In this connection, we process the information that you made available for the purposes of organising, holding and following up on the seminar in question based on section 6 of the Church Data Protection Act (KDG). Without this data, we will not be able to consider your application to take part.

Service providers

Your personal data will be passed onto the instructors at the seminar in question. This is done for the purposes of preparation and, if necessary, for making contact. As well as this, external IT service providers can access your data in some cases. In all cases, service providers are bound by contractually agreed instructions.

Retaining and deleting data

Your data will only be kept for as long as is necessary for the aforementioned purposes of organising, holding and following up on the seminar in question. The data will be deleted at the latest after the retention period required by civil, commercial and tax law has elapsed.

Data protection when processing coaches’ personal data

We process your personal data in order to make the services you offer available to AGEH experts, in order to fulfil the contracts that come into existence, for the purposes of accounting and cost accounting based on section 6(1c) of the Church Data Protection Act (KDG) and in order to meet contractual and legal obligations (for example under commercial and tax law) based on section 6(1d) KDG. The business relationship exists between us and you as contractor. As a result of external requirements (for example in connection with customs/tax law), it may come to pass that your personal data is compared against lists published by authorities.

In order to be able to work with AGEH experts, you need information from AGEH. You will receive this at our coach and trainer conferences to which we will send you an invitation by e-mail once a year, as well as through our seminar brochure, which we will send you by post once a year.

The data you have provided is necessary for entering into contracts and for fulfilling the contractual relationships accordingly. Without this data, we are not able to offer your services to AGEH experts or fulfil the contracts that come into existence.

Passing on data

In some cases, your personal data will be passed on to external service providers (e.g. tax advisors, legal advisors). Similarly, some external IT service providers may have access to your data (for contract data processing in accordance with section 29 of the Church Data Protection Act (KDG)). In this connection, service providers are bound by contractually agreed instructions.

Retaining and deleting data

We will contact you on a regular basis to verify the correctness of your data and, in this connection, will advise you of your right to have your data deleted. In this case, your data will be deleted at the latest after the retention period required by civil, commercial and tax law has elapsed.

Plug-ins on the website

On our website, we use different plug-ins by other service providers as outlined in the information below.

Web analytics with Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, i.e. text files placed on your computer to analyse how you use the website. The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website (including your shortened IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there. Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities for the website operator and to provide additional services associated with your use of the website and your use of the internet. Whenever it is deemed appropriate, Google will transfer this information to third parties, as prescribed by law, or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

You can prevent your data from being used by Google Analytics by installing an “add-on” in your browser. To do so, you can click on the following link to Google’s website: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de [external page].

Facebook (“like” button)

In parts of our website, Facebook “plug-ins” (“like” buttons) have been integrated (Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA). When you call up the page in question on our website, information is transmitted to Facebook detailing which of our web pages you have visited with your IP address. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook, this will be assigned to your personal Facebook user account. When using plug-in functions (e.g. clicking on “like” buttons, posting comments), this information is also assigned to your Facebook account, which you can prevent by logging out before using the plug-in.

Twitter

Functions of the Twitter service are integrated on our web pages. These features are available through Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. By using Twitter and the “re-tweet” function, the websites you visit are linked to your Twitter account and shared with other users. This data is also transmitted to Twitter. We would like to state clearly that we, as the provider of the web pages, are not aware of what the transmitted data contains or how it is used by Twitter. For more information, see the Twitter privacy notice at http://twitter.com/privacy [external page]. Your privacy settings on Twitter can be changed in the account settings at: http://twitter.com/account/settings [external page].

LinkedIn

This website uses functions of the LinkedIn network, provided by LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Every time one of our pages containing LinkedIn functions is called up, a connection with LinkedIn’s servers is established. This informs LinkedIn that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click on the LinkedIn “recommend button” and are logged into your LinkedIn account, it is possible for LinkedIn to assign your visit to our website to you and your user account. We would like to state clearly that we, as the provider of the web pages, are not aware of what the transmitted data contains or how it is used by LinkedIn. For more information, see the LinkedIn privacy policy at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy [external page].

XING

This website uses functions of the XING network, provided by XING AG, Dammtorstr. 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany. Every time one of our pages containing XING functions is called up, a connection with XING’s servers is established. As far as we are aware, personal data is not stored and, in particular, IP addresses are not stored and user behaviour is not analysed. More information on data protection and the XING share button can be found in the XING data protection notice at https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection [external page].
