  • Performance of an agreement. We process your data to perform an agreement that we enter into or have entered into with you, when you have instructed us to provide goods and/or services or when we purchase products or services from you.
  • Consent. We ask your permission for certain data processing operations, for example if we want to send you our newsletter or other commercial emails whilst you are not an existing customer. Consent may be withdrawn at any time without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on the consent before the withdrawal.
  • Statutory obligation. We may process your data if and to the extent that this is necessary to comply with any of our statutory obligations.
  • Legitimate interest. In some cases, we process personal data because we have a legitimate interest in doing so and because we do not disproportionately invade your privacy when doing so. This is the case, for example, if you are a customer and we want to make you an offer based on services you purchased previously. Also, we have a legitimate interest in maintaining a selection process for the recruitment of personnel and to check the capabilities of job applicants.

WITH WHOM CAN WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

WHERE IS YOUR PERSONAL DATA BEING PROCESSED?

Some or all of the personal data we process may be stored or processed on servers located outside your jurisdiction of residence, where data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction of the country where you live. As a result, this information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement according to laws in those jurisdictions.

Personal data that we obtain within the context of a job application procedure for a period of four weeks from the end of the selection procedure, unless you have given us permission to retain it for a longer period of time.

“DO NOT TRACK” SIGNALS

Some newer browsers have a Do Not Track (“DNT”) feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want your online activities tracked.  When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser, your browser sends a special signal to websites, ad networks, plug-in providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity via cookies or other tracking technologies.  Scholle IPN does not track its website users over time and across third party websites and therefore does not respond to DNT signals. More information about third party tracking cookies that are used on our website can be found in our Cookie Statement (https://www.scholleipn.com/cookie-statement).
