2. General principles and information regarding data protection

2.1 Scope of the processing of personal data

When you use the Kadmos Website, we collect and use your personal data only to the extent necessary to provide a functioning website and/or to provide our web- or online-offers.
Any collection and use of personal data for other purposes only takes place

● with your prior consent, or
● if the processing is required to arrange a contract or to fulfil contractual obligations, or
● if we are legally obliged to do so, for example to comply with a statutory right to information, or
● if the processing is required to protect our legitimate interests unless your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms prevail and require the protection of your personal data.


Additionally, exceptions apply in such cases where we are unable to obtain your prior consent for factual reasons or where the processing of personal data is permitted or required by law.

2.2 Legal bases

Insofar as we obtain consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 par. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance, implementation of pre-contractual measures, or for the initiation of a contract, is Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR.

To the extent the processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. c GDPR is the legal basis.

If the processing is required to protect our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, and if your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms, which require the protection of your personal data, do not outweigh such legitimate interest, the legal basis is Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

2.3 Consent, right to withdraw consent, right to object the processing

As a general rule, we obtain your consent electronically. Typically, we will ask you to express your consent by ticking a checkbox displayed on the Kadmos Website, or by clicking on the relevant field of a form. Your declaration of consent is recorded electronically. You can contact us at any time to request a documentation of the declaration of consent you have submitted at the relevant time.

In some cases, e.g. when registering for newsletters, we may use the so-called “double opt-in procedure” once we have obtained your consent in order to verify that it is actually you who has given the consent in question. In these cases, we will usually ask you to click on a link in an email we send you, although we may use other methods in the future. In these cases, your consent will only become effective once you have confirmed that you have given your consent. The click on the link or any other declaration we ask you to make in order to verify the consent will be recorded electronically, and also the circumstances of obtaining the confirmation (e.g., email that was sent, link, IP address, time, date) will be recorded.

You can contact us at any time to request documentation of the declaration(s) of consent you have submitted at the relevant time.

You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future, in whole or in part. In cases where another legal basis applies to the processing of your data, you can object to the processing of your data at any time. There is no form requirement for your statement of withdrawal or objection, but any such declaration is best addressed electronically to the contacts provided in section 1 or sent via the other contact options specified by us on the Kadmos Website.

In the event of a withdrawal or objection, we are not able to provide the parts of the Kadmos Website which require consent, and in the event you generally object to the processing of your data, the same applies to those parts of the Kadmos Website which cannot function properly without the use of necessary cookies for which no consent is required. The lawfulness of processing that took place on the basis of consent until revocation, or that took place until receipt of the objection, remains unaffected by this. 

Please note that we do not store the fact that you have objected the processing of your data, because this would require the processing of data to which you have objected. Upon your next visit to the Kadmos Website, you will be asked again for consent, and only if consent is given those parts of the Kadmos Website which require consent will again become available.

2.4 Recipients of personal data

We sometimes use third parties which provide services on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions (so-called “Processors”). These Processors constitute “recipients” within the meaning of the GDPR and may receive or come into contact with personal data as part of providing their services.

We have contractually ensured that our processors provide sufficient guarantees for having suitable technical and organisational measures in place, that the processing is carried out in compliance with the requirements of the GDPR and that the protection of the rights of the affected data subject is guaranteed (c.f. Art. 28 GDPR).

If personal data is transferred to a third party which is not a processor, i.e. another Controller, we provide that this is only done in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR and only if there is legal basis for the transfer (see section 2.2). To the extent such a transfer takes place, this will be expressly mentioned in the information provided below and the relevant legal basis, as well as the third party recipient or category of recipients will be named.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information on the processors we use. For this purpose, you are welcome to contact the bodies named in section 1 electronically.

2.5 Data processing in so-called third countries

Your personal data will generally be processed within the EU or the European Economic Area (EEA), and the processing will be governed by the GDPR. Please note that this is also the case if you are located in a country outside of the EU or the EEA.

Only in some cases it is possible that information is transferred to so-called “third countries”. “Third countries” are countries outside the territory of the EU and/or the EEA, where an adequate level of data protection comparable with the standards applicable within the EU/EEA cannot be readily assumed.

If the information transferred also includes personal data, we provide that, prior to any such transfer, there are guarantees for an appropriate level of data protection in the respective third country or at the relevant recipient in the third country. This may be assumed from a so-called “adequacy decision” of the European Commission, or by using the so-called “EU standard contractual clauses”. Upon request, we will be happy to provide you with further information on the suitable and appropriate guarantees that we require in order to ensure an adequate level of data protection. Please refer to section 1 for the relevant contact details.

2.6 Deletion of data and period of storage

We delete personal data as soon as the purpose of the processing has expired. Thereafter, we will only retain personal data

if required for the performance of an angreement between you and us, 
if required by a competent European or national legislator under EU regulations, or if required by law or other legal provisions to which we are subject, e.g. for the fulfilment of statutory document and data retention requirements and/or 
in the event of a justified interest in the storage of the data, e.g. during the course of limitation periods for the purpose of legal defence against any claims, or during an ongoing legal dispute. In these cases, the data will be deleted if the reason to retain the data or the applicable retention period have expired.

2.7 Rights of affected persons 

As a person affected by the processing of personal data, the GDPR provides you with certain rights. If you would like to make use of one or more of these rights, you can contact one of our employees at any time. Please use the contact options provided under section 1 above.


3. Processing of data for the provision of the Kadmos Website and the collection of Log Data

3.1 Description and scope of processing

Each time you access any content on the Kadmos Website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system or mobile device from which you are accessing the content. The following data is collected (hereinafter referred to as “Log Data”):

● information about the browser type and the version used (so-called “user agent”);
● the operating system of your computer system or mobile device;
● the internet service provider used by your computer system or mobile device to access the internet;
● the IP address of your computer system or mobile device;
● the date, time and duration of access;
● the website from which you have accessed the content of the Kadmos Website (so-called “referrer”);
● the website you visit after you have accessed the Kadmos Website.

Except for the IP address, the log data listed above cannot be used to identify you personally. A personal identification can only be established by assigning or linking the log data to data on the user of an IP address, which is generally not available to us

3.2 Purpose of the processing
Log data, in particular, the IP address of your computer or mobile device, is collected and processed for the purpose of providing the content contained on our website. This requires temporary storage of your IP address. This is required to address data traffic between your computer system or mobile device and our web- and/or online-offers or is needed to use our web- and/or online-offers.

Any further processing and storage of your IP address in log files is carried out for the purpose of ensuring the functionality of our web- and online-offers, to optimise the same, and to ensure the security of our IT systems.In addition, this data is analysed by us for statistical purposes. This takes place in summarised form; individual users cannot be identified.

3.3 Legal bases

The legal basis for the collection and processing of the log data, to the extent they constitute personal data, is Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR (performance and arrangement of contracts), as we use the Kadmos Website to promote and offer our product offerings to Companies and users like you.

The legal basis for storing Log Data for purposes beyond the communication process is Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR (protection of legitimate interests). In this case, our interest in using the Log Data to provide for, also preventively, a safe and secure operation of our IT systems and the protection of other users' data outweighs your interest in ensuring that your Log Data - which for technical reasons must be processed anyway to provide the Kadmos Website - is not used for these purposes.

3.4 Deletion of data and storage period

The Log Data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of Log Data for the provision of the Kadmos Website, this is the case when the relevant session – i.e. the website visit – has ended. The storage of Log Data beyond this, including the IP address, for the purpose of providing a safe and secure system, takes place for a maximum period of three (3) months after the Kadmos Website was accessed.

Any further processing and/or storage of Log Data is subject to the deletion of the IP addresses from the Log Data in order to anonymize the Log Data in such a way that it is no longer possible to relate the Log Data to a data subject.

3.5 Right to object and deletion possibilities

The collection of Log Data for the provision of the Kadmos Website, including its storage in log files within the limits mentioned above, is essential for the operation of the Kadmos Website. Therefore, there is no possibility to object. This does not apply to the processing of Log Data for analytical purposes; this depends on the web analysis tools used and the type of data analysis (personal / anonymous / pseudonymous) taking place. Please refer to section 6 to learn more about the data processed thereby and your right to object.


4. Use of cookies 

4.1 Description and scope of data processing.

That Cookie contains a characteristic string of characters that enables the browser to be uniquely identified when you visit the website again.

The Kadmos Website uses different types of Cookies. Our own Cookies i.e. Cookies issued by the webserver of the Kadmos Website, do not contain any directly relatable personal data, so your privacy is protected. However, depending on the type of Cookie and the possibility of assigning a Cookie to an IP address, it is generally possible to establish a reference to a person. Subject to the processing of LogFiles described in section 3, we do not generally carry out such referencing.

Some Cookies may be placed by third parties who appear on the Kadmos Website, or by services provided by third parties which we have integrated in the Kadmos Website. We may also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners. Our partners may combine this information with other information you have provided to them or that they have collected as part of your use of the Kadmos Website or through your use of the Kadmos Platform or the Kadmos Services, if you subscribe to our products directly as a Worker or through a Company as a Company User.

Please refer to the instructions of your browser or the manufacturer of your computer system or mobile devices for details of how this works. 

We use different kinds of Cookies, which serve different purposes:

Necessary cookies help to make the Kadmos Website usable by enabling basic functions such as page navigation and access to secure areas of the Kadmos Website. The Kadmos Website cannot function properly without these Cookies.
Preference Cookies allow the Kadmos Website to remember information that affects the way the Kadmos Website behaves or looks, such as your preferred language.
Statistics Cookies help us understand how visitors like you interact with the Kadmos Website by collecting and reporting information anonymously.
Marketing Cookies are used to follow visitors to other websites. The intention is to show ads that are relevant and appealing to the individual user and therefore more valuable to publishers and third party advertisers.

4.2 Purpose of data processing

The purpose of using Necessary Cookies is to enable the use of the Kadmos Websites. They are needed for those functions of the Kadmos Website which cannot be provided without the use of such Cookies. For these it is necessary that the browser is recognized even after a page change.

The purpose of these Cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid having to re-enter preferences every time you revisit the Kadmos Website. 

Marketing Cookies and Statistics Cookies are used for the purpose of improving the quality of the Kadmos Website and its contents. In this way we learn how the Kadmos Website is used and we can thus constantly optimise the Kadmos Websiter. For these purposes, we also use third-party systems that set third-party cookies.

4.3 Legal bases

The law allows us to store cookies on your device only if they are absolutely necessary for the operation of this site (Necessary Cookies). For all other types of Cookies, we need to obtain your consent first. Therefore, the legal basis for processing all other Cookies is Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR (consent). Your consent is obtained separately for our website by means of a tool. You can change or withdraw your consent at any time by means of the tool or by contacting us, see section 1. If Necessary Cookies are used to create pseudonymous analyses of the use of the Kadmos Website, the legal basis is Art. 6 para 1 sentence lit. f GDPR (protection of legitimate interests).
If you have not given consent, we do not use Preference Cookies, Marketing Cookies or Statistics Cookies.

4.4 Deletion of data and period of storage 

All Cookies are stored on your computer system or mobile device and are transmitted to our web server. A distinction is made between so-called “Permanent Cookies” and “Session Cookies”. Session Cookies are stored for the duration of a browser session and are deleted when the browser is closed. Permanent Cookies are not deleted when the respective browser session is closed but are stored on the user's computer system or mobile device for a longer period of time. For example, the cookie that informs our webserver that you have granted consent may be a Permanent Cookie.

Necessary Cookies are usually Session Cookies and deleted once you leave the Kadmos Website. All other Cookies are Permanent Cookies and stored for periods between 30 days and two (2) years.

4.5 Right to object and deletion possibilities

When visiting our website, an information banner informs you about the use of Cookies and refers you to this general privacy policy. The banner also requests you to consent to the processing of personal data used in this context.

You have full control over the use and storage of Cookies. You can generally deactivate or restrict the transmission of Cookies by changing the settings in your browser. You can delete Cookies that have already been saved at any time. Most browsers offer a function to do this automatically. If Cookies are deactivated, it may no longer be possible to use all functions of the Kadmos Website in full. 

Once you have given your consent to the use of Cookies, we may use Preference Cookies, Marketing cookies or Statistics Cookies to create pseudonymous user profiles. You can withdraw the consent at any time with effect for the future. You can exercise your right of objection via the information banner or via the above-mentioned setting options in your browser. Section 2.3 applies to the objection.


5. Analysis tools


5.1 Google Analytics

a ) Description and scope of data processing
It is important to us to design the Kadmos Website as optimally as possible and thus make it attractive for you. To do this, it is necessary for us to know which parts of the Kadmos Website and in particular its user interface are well received, and which are less well received or may even lead to aborts. This is why we have implemented “Google Analytics”, an analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google") into the Kadmos Mobile Application.
Google analytics’ technology is based on Cookies. Therefore, we ask for your consent (see sections 2.3 and 4) once you first access the Kadmos Website. The Google analytics part integrated therein will not work without your consent. In this case, no Cookies will be set, but also some functionality of the Kadmos Website which is based on Cookies may not start.

Google analytics will collect the following data:
Unique cookie IDIP address and, based thereupon, the approximate geographical origin
Last impression (relevant for post-view conversions)
length of the visit
origin of visitor traffic, exit pages and usage procedures

Therefore, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of our website to their full extent. If possible on your device, you should therefore set the prevention of the storage of Cookies in your web browser so that only Cookies from the domain "google" are blocked. We would like to point out that this setting is also usually deleted when you delete all your cookies.

We provide the e-mail address contact@kadmos.io through wich you may contact us electronically.

last name, first name, title, company (if applicable)
message text and all personal data contained therein, e.g. postal address, telephone and facsimile number, mobile number.

Additionally, the following data is processed and stored upon receipt:
e-mail header, this contains the technically required information about the sending system and further information regarding the sending as well as the forwarding to the recipient system (e.g. details regarding date/time, IP addresses of the servers, ID numbers)
date and time of receipt by our system

We also provide a contact form at […] <LINK einfügen> through which you may contact us without sending an email. In this case, you can select which information you want to disclose to us, but we will require one contact information from you, usually the e-mail address. Along with the information you provide us through the contact form, we collect the date and time of receipt of the message. Please note that we may also store the relevant entry in the Log Data file along with the message.Under no circumstances will the data be passed on to third parties unless we have to refer to third parties to process the enquiry.

7.2 Purpose of data processing

The data will be processed exclusively for the purpose of processing your respective request. In addition, the technical data collected (e.g. e-mail headers) are used to prevent misuses of the e-mail address and to ensure the security of our IT systems.

GDPR; the legitimate interests here lie in the prevention of abuse and ensuring system security (see above).

7.4 Erasure of data and period of storage

For personal data sent via e-mail, this is the case when the respective communication is finished and/or the request has been finally answered. Communication is finished when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been finally clarified. Instead of deletion, the data will be saved with restrictions placed on their processing if continued storage of the data is necessary for the reasons stated in section 2.6 above, e.g. because the request or its content is subject to legal or supervisory data retention obligations.


8. Job advertisements and applications

8.1 Description and scope of data processing

Within the scope of the application procedure, only the data provided by you (e.g. application, curriculum vitae, photo if applicable) will be processed. If you expressly give us this option, we also use data that we learn from third parties, e.g. reference persons.

Within our company, only those employees and service providers who are involved in the application process receive your personal data. Furthermore, a transfer of the relevant data to third parties on the basis of legal regulations or contractual agreements is possible in each individual case. These can be processors such as an IT service provider we use to host out IT systems.

During the application procedure, you only need to provide the data necessary for assessing your suitability for the position to be filled. You cannot participate in the application procedure without providing at least this data. The provision of this information is therefore mandatory.

8.2 Purpose of data processing

The processing of your personal data is the basis for participation in the application procedure. Furthermore, the data provided should enable an assessment of the suitability of the person applying for the position to be filled. Without this data we cannot consider the application in the application procedure.

8.3 Legal basis

If your application is successful, we will save the data in the personnel file for further processing.

8.5 Right to object and deletion possibilities

You can object to the processing of your data at any time. You can also withdraw any consent you have given us in connection with your application.

Pursuant to Art. 15 GDPR, you have the right to request information from us at any time about your personal data processed by us, its origin and the purposes and methods of processing the data as well as the recipients of the data.
