Privacy policy for the appearance on YouTube

We have embedded YouTube videos in our online offer, which are stored on http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. In principle, when you call up a page with embedded videos, your IP address is already sent to YouTube/Google and cookies are installed on your computer.  However, we have embedded our videos in "extended data protection mode", i.e. no data about you as a user will be transmitted to YouTube/Google if you do not play the videos. Only when you click on the video to play, the following data will be transferred: 
• IP address
• Date and time of the request
• Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
• Content of the request (specific page)
• Access status/HTTP status code
• Amount of data transferred in each case
• Website from which the request comes
• Browser
• Operating system and its interface
• Language and version of the browser software
• Hardware used (PC, smartphone, etc.)
• Location (if Google Maps is enabled)

We have no influence on this data transmission.

By visiting our website and playing the videos, YouTube/Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. If you are logged in to Google, this data is directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. In addition, YouTube/Google also stores data if you do not have a Google user account, these are in particular: IP address, search queries, browser and operating system version. 

YouTube/Google stores the aforementioned data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in or users without a corresponding account) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

The information collected by the cookies of this provider is usually sent to a server in the USA and stored there. In the event that the data is transferred to the USA, the data transfer is based on the existence of standard contractual clauses.

HyImpulse Technologies GmbH does not collect or process personal data via YouTube. The transfer of personal data by Google, in particular to third countries, is outside the scope of responsibility of HyImpulse Technologies GmbH. It cannot be held liable in this regard.

Privacy policy for the appearance on Facebook

Plugins of the social network Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland are integrated on our pages.

You can recognize these by the Facebook logo or the "Like" button on our page. An overview of possible Facebook plugins can be found at the following link: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.  Due to these Facebook plugins (Like button), a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server is established if you visit our pages. Through your visit, Facebook receives information that you have visited our pages with your IP address. If you now click on the Facebook "Like" button on our pages while you are logged into your Facebook account at the same time, the content of our pages will be linked on your Facebook profile. Consequently, Facebook can associate your visit to our site with your user account. We, as the service provider, point out that we, as the website provider, do not obtain knowledge of the content of the transmitted data as well as its use by Facebook. Therefore, to obtain further information regarding Facebook's privacy policy, we refer to the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php

If you do not want Facebook to associate your visit to our website with your Facebook user account, we ask you to log out of your Facebook user account when you visit our website. We would also like to point out that you use the Facebook page and its functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the interactive functions (for example, commenting, sharing, rating). Facebook processes personal data about your account, your IP address as well as about the end devices you use; cookies are used for data collection. These are small files that are stored on your end devices. Facebook describes in general terms what information it receives and how it is used in its data usage guidelines. There you will also find information about contact options for Facebook, the objection options, and the settings options for advertisements.

The Data Use Policy is available at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy  

Facebook's full data policies can be found here: https://de-de.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy  

The information may be used by Facebook to provide us, as operators of the Facebook pages, with statistical information such as gender and age distribution about the use of the Facebook page. In addition, Facebook may display further information or advertisements to you according to your preferences. Facebook provides more detailed information on this at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights.

The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. 

If you visit one of our presences in the social media (e.g. Facebook), you trigger a processing of your personal data during such a visit. In this case, we are jointly responsible with the operator of the respective social network for the data processing operations within the meaning of Art. 26 GDPR, provided that we actually make a joint decision with the operator of the social network about the data processing and we also have an influence on the data processing. As far as possible, we have concluded joint responsibility agreements with the operators of the social networks pursuant to Art. Art. 26 GDPR, so in particular the Page Controller Addendums of Facebook Ireland Ltd. Your rights (right to information pursuant to Art. 15 GDPR, right to rectification pursuant to Art. 16 GDPR, right to erasure pursuant to Art. 17 GDPR, right to restriction of processing pursuant to Art. 18 GDPR, right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR and right to lodge a complaint pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR) can in principle be asserted both against us and against the operator of the respective social network (e.g. Facebook). 

We ask you to note that despite the joint responsibility pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR with the operators of social networks, we have no full influence on the data processing of the individual social networks. The corporate policy of the respective provider has a significant influence on our options. In the event of the assertion of data subject rights, we could only forward these requests to the operator of the social network. 

In what way Facebook uses data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties, is not conclusively and clearly stated by Facebook and is not known to us. 

When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your terminal device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymized (for "German" IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook also stores information about the end devices of its users (for example, as part of the "login notification" function); if necessary, Facebook is thus able to assign IP addresses to individual users. 

If you are currently logged in to Facebook as a user, a cookie with your Facebook ID is located on your end device. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Via Facebook buttons embedded in websites, it is possible for Facebook to record your visits to these website pages and assign them to your Facebook profile. Based on this data, content or advertising can be offered tailored to you. 

If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the "stay logged in" function, delete the cookies present on your device and exit and restart your browser. In this way, Facebook information through which you can be directly identified will be deleted. This will allow you to use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook identifier. When you access interactive features of the page (Like, Comment, Share, Message, etc.), a Facebook login screen will appear. After any login, you will again be recognizable to Facebook as a specific user. Alternatively, you can use a different browser than usual to visit our Facebook page.

For information on how to manage or delete information about you, please visit the following Facebook support pages: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy#

We, as the provider of the information service, do not collect or process any data from your use of our service beyond this. You can find this data privacy statement in its current version under the item "Data Policy" on our Facebook page.

Further contact details can be found at https://hyimpulse.de/en/contact. LinkedIn's privacy policy can be found here: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy?trk=homepage-basic_footer-privacy-policy.

Purpose: presentation of the company as well as interaction with our users

The purpose of the data processing of our LinkedIn presence is the information about our company, our products and services, combined with the possibility for users to interact with us in a targeted manner. The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is in particular our business interest in sharing information with our users and being able to communicate with them. 

For the operation of the LinkedIn presence, we are supported by service companies separately committed to confidentiality and data protection. Data is only passed on to authorities in the event of overriding legal requirements. 

If we publish images of individuals, this is done via consent (legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR), on the basis of a contractual agreement (legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR) and in exceptional cases on the basis of legitimate interests (legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR in conjunction with § 23 para. 1 no. 3 Art Copyright Act). 

Use of Insight data

We place advertisements on LinkedIn and use insight data provided by LinkedIn to evaluate the behavior of our target group or users in the context of interaction with our site. The targeting of advertising is a legitimate interest of our company. LinkedIn users are informed of this; the responsibility for data collection lies primarily with LinkedIn. A joint responsibility agreement has been concluded with LinkedIn. Countervailing interests of users worthy of protection (display of individual target group-optimized advertising) are not predominant. The legal basis for us is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR in connection with joint responsibility. You can find the shared responsibility agreement here: https://legal.linkedin.com/pages-joint-controller-addendum. If you assert your data subject rights against us, we will forward them to LinkedIn in accordance with the agreement. 

Third country transfer

It is not excluded that data from users is processed on systems outside the European Union. LinkedIn has undertaken to comply with the data protection standards of the EU. A data transfer to systems outside the EU only takes place if the requirements of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR are complied with.

You can exercise your right to information, correction and deletion of data at any time. Simply contact us in the ways described above. If you wish data to be deleted but we are still legally obliged to retain it, access to your data will be restricted (blocked). The same applies in the event of an objection. You can exercise your right to data portability insofar as the technical possibilities are available at the recipient's and our end. 

If your rights need to be asserted against LinkedIn, we will forward your request to LinkedIn.
