How we collect information about you
We obtain information about you when you use our website, when you contact us via email or a web form or if you register to receive one of our regular newsletters.
Information we collect about you
When you visit our website(s) we may collect information about your IP address, information about your visit, and how you use our website. This information may be combined with other information you provide.
Information we receive from other sources
We may receive information about you if you use any other websites we, or our partners, operate. We also work with third parties (including, contractors, project partners, service providers, analytics providers) and may receive information about you from them. This may be combined with other information you provide to us.
How your information is used
We may use personal information about you for the following purposes:
(a) to keep you up to date on important news and information.
(b) to send you personalized messages that you have requested and that may be of interest to you, which may be based on your activity on our website(s) or our partners' websites. Information regarding campaigns, activities, and events may be included.
(c) to comprehend and assess the efficiency with which we serve you and others.
(d) provide suggestions and recommendations to you regarding services that may be of interest to you, based on your activities on our website(s) or the websites of our partners.
(e) for analytics and profiling to create aggregate trend reports, find out how visitors arrive at our website; which sites and pages are viewed, the responses to marketing campaigns and to determine the most effective marketing channels and messages.
(f) seek your views or comments on the service we provide.
We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity.
Who has access to your information
We will not sell or rent your information to third parties.
We may pass your information to third party service providers, agents, subcontractors and other associated organisations for the purposes of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to process and store information and to send you mails). However, if we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes.
We will take the necessary steps to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected.
Your choices and your rights
You have the right to inform us not to process your personal information for marketing purposes. You can exercise your right and prevent us from processing such information by checking or unchecking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us by email at email@example.com.
Security measures to protect your information
When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely.
Non-sensitive details such as your email address may be transmitted unencrypted over the Internet, and so may not be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. When we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
We may analyse your personal information to create a profile of your preferences and interests so that we can contact you with information relevant to you. We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively.
The provisions of this data privacy statement also apply to the request for and sending of our newsletter.
The newsletter will only be sent after prior request by the user in the so-called “double opt-in procedure” (request on our website and confirmation of a corresponding request e-mail).
Users of the newsletter are also given a UserID, which enables IOTEN to track when the relevant newsletter was accessed and which links or features were triggered from it. This tracking is done for the newsletter's internal optimization. This information will not be shared with anyone else. The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR, whereby IOTEN's authorization arises from the fact that, on the one hand, IOTEN has an interest in evaluating such data for the purposes of newsletter optimization and, on the other hand, a concerned person can reasonably foresee that the personal data will be processed at the time when it is collected and in light of the circumstances in which it is carried out (in particular the above-mentioned measures).
The user has the right to withdraw his or her consent at any time. If the user of the newsletter does not wish to receive this tracking, he/she can unsubscribe from the newsletter. To do so, simply unsubscribe via the link in the newsletter.
Cookies are files or pieces of information that may be stored on your computer (or other internet enabled devices, such as a smartphone or tablet) when you visit a website. They are sent by a server to your computer and stored on your hard drive to allow a website to recognise you when you visit. A cookie will usually contain the name of the website from which the cookie has come from, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e. how long it will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.
Links to other websites
If you linked to our website from a third party site, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third party site and recommend that you check the policy of that site.
16 or Under
We are concerned to protect the privacy of children aged 16 or under. If you are aged 16 or under‚ please get your parent/guardian’s permission beforehand whenever you provide us with personal information.
