The protection of your personal data is important to us. We process your data exclusively within the framework of the relevant legal provisions (GDPR, Data Protection Act 2000, Telecommunication Act 2003, Data Protection Act). In the following, we would like to inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within the framework of our website, an application or a business relationship.
Collection of personal data
We process the personal data that we receive from you as part of a business relationship for the purpose of processing a contract. This personal data may include:
- Personal data collected through applications (academic title, name, address, contact details, date of birth, place of birth, nationality, education, etc.)
- Order details (billing address, tax number, bank account details, etc.)
- Other data as part of the fulfilment of the contract
Data transfer / Data processor
Data shall not be transferred to third parties unless this is necessary in order to fulfil the contract, e.g. to the tax office / tax administration to fulfil our tax obligations. Should a legal obligation exist, then your data will also be passed on to public bodies and institutions (e.g. tax authorities, insurance companies).
Data collection when contacting us
If you contact us in writing, by telephone or by email, the data you provide will be stored by us for the duration of the legal retention period for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass this data on to third parties without your consent. Your device might store data that you enter on our website without our intervention. You are responsible for the security of the data on your device.
All the data associated with the contractual relationship will be stored for the duration of the entire business relationship, from the initiation of the transaction to the termination of a contract and beyond in accordance with the applicable legal retention and documentation obligations. Application documents will be stored without your consent in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR for a maximum of 6 months after receiving or rejecting them.
If there are any links to other websites, we will assume no liability for the content, functionality and security of these external links despite careful checking. This shall also apply to all other direct or indirect references or links to third-party internet offers. Should a website, to which we have linked, contain illegal content, please inform us so that the link can be removed immediately.
