  • the IP address
  • the date and time of the request
  • the time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page)

These data are stored in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR in conjunction with § 25 para. 2 no. 2 TTDSG, for the purpose of conducting error analysis and ensuring the stability and security of the homepage.

These data are deleted after 365 days.

For the operation of this web offer, we use the services of a provider specialized in web hosting. Upon request, we provide you with information about the service providers we have integrated. Furthermore, this privacy policy informs you about other integrated service providers and third parties.

§4 Processing of Your Data When Registering as a Customer

If you register with resonio (powered by clickworker) or commission resonio with a project, it is necessary to provide a contact person with first name, last name, and email address, where a functional email can also be entered.

We process the data you provide in the context of the project request to process your inquiry (within the scope of your consent, for contract fulfillment) and to follow up on offers made (legitimate interest – Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR).

Your data will be retained for as long as necessary to process your concern (maximum: for the duration of the statutory retention period).

For our CRM, we use the cloud-based software solution of the provider Salesforce.com. Inc, The Landmark @ One Market, Suite 300, San Francisco, CA 94105 (hereinafter “Salesforce”). We have contractually ensured that our CRM database from Salesforce is hosted on servers located in the European Union. In regard to this data processing, we have concluded a “Data Processing Addendum (DPA)” with Salesforce. Part of this DPA are the “EU Standard Contractual Clauses” (Art. 46 (2) lit. c GDPR). Through this contract, Salesforce assures that the data will be processed according to our instructions and in compliance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation. In addition, Salesforce has implemented “Binding Corporate Rules” within the company to comply with data protection and is certified under the EU-U.S. Data Privacy Framework.

The data required for registration (e.g., name, address, email address) is used by resonio (powered by clickworker) exclusively to process the contractual relationship with you as a customer (e.g., to contact you, to inform about the status of projects, for invoicing, to respond to your inquiries, etc.).

§5 Support/Ticket System

For our customer support and the provision of live chat, we use the service “Freshdesk” or “Freshchat”. Freshdesk is a support service tool of the company Freshworks Inc., 1250 Bayhill Drive, Suite 315, San Bruno, CA 94066. When you open a support ticket via Freshdesk, you are redirected to a separate page of our ticket system. The data you enter into our ticket system is transmitted to the servers of Freshdesk. If you click the speech bubble button integrated at the bottom right of our website and thus open the messenger, your personal data collected during the chat is also transmitted to the server of Freshworks.

The server location is generally in the USA, so transmission of your data to the USA cannot be excluded. We have concluded a data processing agreement (“Data Protection Addendum”) with Freshdesk to ensure that your data is processed in accordance with the regulations of the GDPR. The agreement includes the conclusion of the EU standard contractual clauses. You can view the agreement here: https://www.freshworks.com/data-processing-addendum/. Even though we have concluded a data protection agreement with Freshdesk, we expressly point out that with companies based or server locations in the USA that are not certified under the Data Privacy Framework, an equivalent level of data protection cannot be guaranteed.

The entry of some data (contact details and concerns) is mandatory. The processing of this data is based on our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit f GDPR), to exclude spam emails and to process your concern and subsequently contact you. The provision of other information is voluntary. Your data will be stored for as long as necessary for processing. Depending on the request, a longer retention period may result, for example, because we have a legitimate interest in proving the processing or because statutory retention periods (in particular §§ 238, 257 HGB) require this.

Furthermore, Freshdesk sets cookies. Through the integration of the above-mentioned cookies, Freshdesk receives information about your browser, your hardware and software, your internet service provider, and your IP address. These are technically necessary cookies (see § 9 of the privacy policy). Further information on data protection at Freshdesk can be found here: www.freshworks.com/privacy/ and here: https://www.freshworks.com/privacy/schrems2/.

§6 Contact Inquiry / Contact Form

When you contact us by email or via a contact form, the data you provide (your email address, if applicable your name and phone number) are stored by us to answer your questions. The provision of additional data is always voluntary on your part.

The legal basis for processing your contact request and its handling is in the case of pre-contractual or already contractual relationships Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR or in the case of other inquiries our legitimate interest in replying to you, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

The storage of your data is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, which you have granted us by sending your contact request/ clicking the send button. The data collected in this context will be deleted after storage is no longer necessary and there are no legal retention obligations that prevent deletion (e.g., in the case of subsequent contract processing).

Since you have given consent, we would like to inform you that you can revoke your consent given during the contact request at any time and without giving reasons with effect for the future, Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR. If you would like to exercise this right of revocation, please contact us.

§7 Use of Our Appointment Booking Tool

If you as a client are interested in our services, you have the option to book an appointment online with our sales team. In this case, we process the data you enter to schedule and conduct the appointment. Certain information is required to carry out the appointment (name, company, contact information). Other information is provided voluntarily (e.g., your position in the company). The data entered are used for planning, carrying out, and possibly for the post-processing of the appointment. The legal basis for processing the data is Art. 6 Abs. 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR (execution of pre-contractual measures). Your data will be deleted as soon as processing is no longer necessary. If further contact and/or an engagement results from the appointment, your data will continue to be stored in other systems (e.g., CRM system, correspondence, offer and contract documents) – possibly until the expiry of possible retention periods according to §§ 238, 257 HGB.

We use the services of Calendly LLC, 271 17th St NW, 10th Floor, Atlanta, Georgia 30363, USA for the provision of the appointment tool and have concluded a Data Processing Addendum. When using our appointment tool, the transfer of personal data to the servers of Calendly located in the USA, i.e., outside the legal area of the European Union, cannot be excluded. Calendly is certified under the Data Privacy Framework and guarantees an equivalent level of data protection in the event of a possible data transfer to the USA.

and https://calendly.com/security.

§8 Newsletter Subscription

You have the option to subscribe to our newsletter. To register, we require your email address, first and last name. Only this information is mandatory for sending the newsletter. The provision of additional data, such as salutation, your company and department affiliation, position, remains voluntary. We send newsletters with promotional information, especially our current and interesting offers.

The so-called double opt-in procedure is used for the newsletter subscription. This means that after your registration, we will send an email to the provided email address asking you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. This confirmation is necessary to prevent someone from registering with email addresses that do not belong to them.
We store your IP addresses and the time of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data; the logging of the registration process is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. GDPR.

The newsletter is sent based on your express consent according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with § 7 Abs. 2 No. 3 UWG.

After your confirmation, we store your data for the purpose of sending the newsletter. Your information is stored in our CRM system Campaign Monitor, a software of Campaign Monitor Pty Ltd, 10 Lower Thames Street, Ground Floor Billingsgate, London EC3R 6GAF, UK, and used only for sending newsletters. The server location is usually in the USA, so the transfer of your data to the USA cannot be excluded. We have concluded a Data Processing Addendum (“Data Protection Addendum”) with Campaign Monitor Ltd. to ensure that your data is processed in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR. The agreement includes the conclusion of the EU standard contractual clauses. More information on the privacy policies of Campaign Monitor can be found at https://www.campaignmonitor.com/policies/#privacy-policy. Regardless of the agreement concluded, we expressly point out that for companies with headquarters or server locations in the USA that are not certified under the Data Privacy Framework, an equivalent level of data protection cannot be guaranteed.

You can revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time for the future and without giving reasons, thus unsubscribing from the newsletter, Art. 7 Abs. 3 GDPR. You can declare the revocation by clicking on the unsubscribe link provided in every newsletter email or by sending a message to the contact details provided in the imprint.

We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behavior when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, our newsletters contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are one-pixel image files stored on our website.

For the evaluations, we link data and web beacons with your email address and an individual ID, which are included in the links in the newsletter. The following data are processed and evaluated for this purpose:

  • the IP address, the date and time of the request
  • the time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time
  • the content of the request (specific page)
  • the access status/HTTP status code; the amount of data transferred
  • the website from which the request comes, the browser
  • the operating system and its interface, the language, and the version of the browser software.

The data are collected exclusively in a pseudonymized form, the IDs are thus not linked with your further personal data, a direct personal reference is excluded.

§9 Use of the Comment Function in the Blog

On our website, we offer the opportunity to post questions, answers, and opinions, hereinafter referred to as “comments”. If you use this comment function, we would like to inform you that we process and publish your contribution, the date of submission, and your chosen pseudonym. We recommend using a pseudonym instead of your real name. The provision of a username and email address is mandatory, all other information is voluntary.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent according to Art. 7 Abs. 3 GDPR at any time and without giving reasons for the future. To revoke your consent, you simply need to contact us.

When you post a comment, we also store your email and IP address, which we delete after 365 days. The data provided in the context of comments and contributions are stored by us until the users object.

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f GDPR. The storage is necessary for us to defend against liability claims in cases of possible publication of unlawful content. We need your email address to contact you in case a third party should object to your comment as unlawful. Comments are not reviewed before publication. We reserve the right to delete comments if they are objected to by third parties as unlawful.

§10 Use of cookies

§10.1 Definition: Temporary and permanent cookies

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by a web server. The next time you visit the website, it can use the cookie to recognize your web browser. Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer. They are used to make the website more user-friendly and effective overall.

There are different types of cookies, the scope and function of which we would now like to explain:

  • There are so-called temporary or transient cookies, which are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to a common session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your web browser.
  • Furthermore, there are permanent or persistent cookies, which initially remain stored after the browser is closed, but are automatically deleted after a specified period of time. The duration differs depending on the cookie, but we would like to point out that you can delete the cookies at any time using the security settings of your web browser.
  • Third-party cookies are cookies that are offered by providers other than the controller who operates the online service.

§10.2 Legal basis for use

The use of certain cookies is necessary to ensure the functionality and security of our website (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, legitimate interest). When you visit our site for the first time, you will be informed via our consent banner which technically necessary cookies are absolutely essential for the operation of the site. You can also use the consent banner to select which cookies that are not technically necessary are used as a result of your visit to our website.

The implementation of this selection via the consent banner used by us requires the use of a cookie, which is stored on your end device for a period of one year, unless you delete it beforehand through your browser settings. The following data is processed through the use of a consent banner

  • Date and time of the visit
  • Browser information
  • Information on consents
  • Device information
  • The IP address of the requesting device

The legal basis is our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) to provide evidence of your cookie selection and to comply with our accountability obligation pursuant to Art. 5 para. 2 GDPR.

If you agree via the consent banner that technically unnecessary cookies (usually for the implementation of tracking and remarketing tools) are set, the processing of your personal data is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with § 25 para. 1 TTDSG).

  • The security of the processing (pursuant to Art. 32 GDPR)
  • The notification of data protection breaches (pursuant to Art. 33, 34 GDPR)

Your visit to our profile on the respective social network triggers a variety of data processing operations. Your personal data is not only collected, used and stored by us, but also by the social network. This happens even if you do not have a profile on this network yourself. We only process the personal data that you provide to us through your public account and by commenting on our posts. You are not obliged to provide us with your personal data. However, this may be necessary for individual functionalities of our social media profile. These functionalities will not be available to you, or only to a limited extent, if you do not provide us with your personal data.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in being able to communicate with users or interested parties as well as customers and to inform them about our services.

If you have a profile in the respective social network and are logged in, the social network processes, among other things, your voluntarily entered data such as first and last name, user name, email address and telephone number. In addition, the social network can analyze your usage behavior and create a usage profile corresponding to your usage behavior. Cookies are stored on your end device for this purpose. These cookies allow the social network to create user profiles based on your preferences and interests and to display customized advertising (inside and outside the platform). We do not have access to the usage data that the social network collects to create these statistics. The individual data processing operations and their scope are not necessarily traceable for us. We are only provided with anonymous usage statistics by the social network, which we use in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR to improve the user experience for specific target groups when visiting our company profile.

If you do not agree to the social network assigning the collected data directly to your profile, we recommend that you log out of this social network, delete your cookies as part of the browser settings and restart the browser. You also have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective social network to exercise this right.

We cannot rule out the possibility that personal data may be transferred outside the legal area of the European Union, e.g. to servers located in the USA, when our company presence on social networks is accessed. Furthermore, we expressly point out that no equivalent level of data protection can be guaranteed for the USA.
