Thank you very much for your interest in our privacy statement and our company.
Protecting your personal data and your private sphere is very important to us. To ensure that you are fully aware of the collection and use of personal data on our website, please take note of the following information.
1. Collection and processing of personal data
1.1 Contact forms
We will only store and use data you enter into the contact forms, such as your name, company, address, e-mail address and phone number, for the purpose of contacting you individually. This will only happen after you have agreed to your data being stored and processed. Please be aware that this data is transferred without encryption, so you should not send us any confidential information via the contact forms.
When subscribing to our newsletter you have to submit your e-mail address. We will only use this to send you the newsletter. When you subscribe to the newsletter we store the IP address you are using at this time and the date of subscription. This data serves only for purposes of verification in case your data is misused by a third party.
The newsletter contains information about the RENA Group, our products and services.
Your e-mail address will remain stored on our server until you unsubscribe from our newsletter. It is possible to unsubscribe at any time using the link provided in the newsletter, in your user profile area or by sending us an appropriate message. Unsubscription is free of charge, except for the cost of sending a message at your usual tariff. When you unsubscribe you are revoking our permission to use your email address. At this point we will immediately delete your e-mail address from our server.
1.3 Online application
Data you enter when completing an online application such as name, date of birth, address, start date, e-mail address, phone number and the documents you submit will be stored and used for the purpose of the application process. The approval for this use is given when you agree to your data being stored and processed. Your data will be encrypted before being transmitted.
2. Transmitting data to third parties
Our website is hosted by a professional service provider. This website operator has access to the data transferred and stored on the website. Our service provider is obliged to comply with privacy laws and to maintain confidentiality.
Your data can only otherwise be transmitted to third parties when other online content is incorporated into the website, for instance YouTube videos, Google Maps, RSS feeds or external images. When using this content, only your IP address will be transmitted to third parties. This is required in order to send the external content to your browser.
Aside from these cases, none of your personal data will be transmitted to any third parties without your prior consent.
Our website uses "cookies", which help to make our internet presence more user-friendly, effective and secure – for instance, by speeding up navigation around our website. In addition, cookies enable us to measure things such as how often certain pages are accessed and how visitors tend to navigate the site. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer. Please note that some of these cookies are copied from our server to your computer, although in most cases these are "session cookies". Session cookies are different in so far as they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of your browser session. "Persistent cookies", on the other hand, remain on your computer and allow us to recognise your computer the next time you visit our site. Naturally you can prevent cookies at any time, so long as your browser allows you to change the settings. However, this may restrict the options available and the convenience of our website.
4. Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and which allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports on website activities for website operators and to provide other services related to use of the website and the internet. Google will also transmit this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Under no circumstances will Google connect your IP address with other data from Google.
You can prevent the installation of cookies through an appropriate setting in your browser; however, we hereby inform you that in such case you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of this website. By using this website you declare your agreement with the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the manner previously described and for the purposes previously mentioned. You can revoke permission for your data to be collected and stored at any time with future effect. You can find our contact address for this purpose in our Imprint section. Alternatively you can install the deactivation add-on for Google Analytics (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en ), so long as it is available for your browser.
Please note that this website uses Google Analytics with the IP anonymisation extension, which means that IP addresses are only used in shortened form to prevent them being directly linked to an individual.
5. Links to other websites
Our internet presence includes links to other websites. We are not able to influence whether the operators of other websites comply with privacy regulations.
As a provider we are responsible for our own content according to the general laws. Our own content is to be distinguished from the links to content supplied by other providers. We take no responsibility for third-party content provided for use via links, and we do not adopt their content as our own.
Solely the provider of the page to which the link is directed is liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content, and especially for damage that results from the use, or lack thereof, of such provided information.
6. Information rights
In accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act, you have a right to be provided with information free of charge regarding your stored data and, where applicable, a right to have this data corrected, blocked or erased.
7. Right of revocation
You can revoke the permission to have your data stored and processed at any time. In this case we will immediately delete your personal data. This also applies to stored log files.
8. Data protection
When using the online application your personal data is transmitted over the internet in encrypted form using SSL. By taking technical and administrative measures, we secure our website and other systems against attempts by unauthorised persons to delete, destroy, access, alter or transmit your data.
You are only able to log in by entering your personal user name and password. You should always treat your access information as confidential and close the browser window once you have finished your communication with us, particularly if you share the computer with other people.
