IEP Technologies, LLC (“IEP Technologies”, “we”, “us,” “our”) is responsible for the collection, processing and storage of your data. For more information about us, please visit About Us at any time.
The careful handling of your personal data is our highest priority. We process your personal data in compliance with applicable law, including in the EU, the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and the respective national provisions.
If separate or additional conditions apply to individual services or we ask you for your consent, we will point this out to you separately before using the respective service (e.g., for newsletter subscription).
Notwithstanding the steps we take to protect your personal data, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. IEP Technologies cannot guarantee the security or integrity of your data and shall not be liable for breaches of security or integrity, third-party interception in transit, or any damage caused to your computer or other property by visiting our Website. If you have any questions regarding the security of our Website, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When you visit and interact with our Website, we may collect information about you, including “personal data” as defined in Section 3 below.
We use the personal data we collect from you in a variety of ways. For example, if you wish to contact us, we will ask you for your name, email address, phone number, professional title, and address, and other similar personal information you voluntarily provide to us so that we can communicate with you. It is your decision whether you would like to provide this data. Data that we require from you to provide our services are indicated as such.
Your personal data is collected and processed for the following purposes on the basis of the following legal bases:
We collect different categories of personal data from you. Personal data is all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person or as defined under applicable law; an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name. Personal data includes, for example, information such as your name, your address, your telephone number and your date of birth (if stated).
Statistical information that cannot be directly or indirectly associated with you – such as the popularity of individual websites of our offer or the number of users of a page – does not qualify as personal data. IEP Technologies collects personal data is collected directly and indirectly, as explained below. In both cases, personal data will only be collected to the extent necessary; the data will only be processed for the purposes stated under Section 2 above. It is your decision whether you want to transmit data to us which is not technically necessary yet optimizes the use of our services for you. Corresponding data fields are marked as 'voluntary'.
If you give us personal data of a third party, you represent that you have provided notice to, and received authorization to provide such information from, that third party.
The personal data we collect directly from you includes:
In addition, data about you is collected indirectly when using our services:
Our Website is not intended for minors under the age of 16 and we do not knowingly collect personal data from minors.
No one under the age of 16 may provide any information to or on the Website. If we determine that a minor under the age of 16 has sent us personal data without the parental consent or consent of the minor, we will delete the data immediately. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under the age of 16, please contact us at email@example.com
Access to your personal data stored by us is limited to our employees and the service providers commissioned by us, who require use or access to your personal data in order to support our business or in connection with the administration and support of the activities noted above.
If third parties gain access to your data, we have obtained your permission or there is a legal basis for this.
We also use service providers to provide services and process your data (including hosting, sending letters or e-mails, maintaining and analyzing databases, securing our web servers or website tracking). Insofar as special provisions apply for these services, we have carried them out for you in the following way for the respective service. The service providers are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal data confidential, process the data exclusively on our instructions and are obliged to comply with the applicable data protection regulations. All contractors have been carefully selected and will only have access to your data to the extent and for the time required to provide the services or to the extent to which you have consented to the processing and use of your data.
IEP Technologies is a global company. As such, we may disclose or share personal data we collect or you provide within the IEP Technologies group of companies to which we belong for internal administrative purposes worldwide. The servers of some of the service providers we use are located in the US and other countries outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Companies in these countries may be subject to data protection laws that do not protect personal data to the same extent as is the case in the EEA. If your data is processed in a country that does not have a recognized high level of data protection such as the EEA, we use contractual regulations or other recognized instruments to adequately protect your personal data. We expressly point this out to you again within the scope of the individual services.
Insofar as personal data is transferred to third countries, this is done on the basis of the EU Commission's decision on appropriateness to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield pursuant to Art. 45 GDPR or the EU Standard Contractual Clauses 2010 pursuant to Art. 46 (2) lit. c GDPR in conjunction with the decision of the EU Commission of 05.02.2010 (2010/87/EU) or your consent pursuant to Art. 49 (1) lit. a) GDPR.
In exceptional cases we transmit personal data to law enforcement and criminal investigation authorities. This is done on the basis of corresponding legal obligations, e.g. from the EU Code of Criminal Procedure, the Fiscal Code, the Money Laundering Act or state police laws or international laws as they may apply.
We store personal data within the framework of legal regulations or your consent. We use the following criteria to determine the concrete storage period:
We store the personal data until the purposes for which they were collected cease to apply (e.g. at the end of a contractual relationship or through the last activity, if no continuing obligation exists, or in the case of a revocation of your consent for the specific data processing).
Further data will only be stored if
In the EEA and depending on the country where you reside, you may have legal rights to which we would like to draw your attention below. Of course, our data protection officer is also available to answer any questions you may have about your personal data that we have collected and processed using the contact details given below.
You have a right of information about the personal data we process concerning you at any time.
If the data processing is based on your consent or according to Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR on a contract, you can also request in accordance with Art. 20 (1) GDPR to receive the personal data stored about you in a structured, current and machine-readable format. At your request, we will also forward the data directly to another controller.
Furthermore, in accordance with Articles 16 to 18 GDPR, you can request us to correct, restrict (block) or delete your personal data if we have processed the data incorrectly, if there is a reason to restrict further data processing, or if data processing has become illegal for various reasons, or if its storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons. We would like to point out that your right to deletion may be restricted by legal retention periods.
If our data processing is based exclusively on our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR, you may object to this processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR. Then we will stop processing your data unless we can prove grounds for processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend a legal claim. Furthermore, you always have the right to object to the use of your data for the purpose of direct advertising with effect for the future pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR.
If you have allowed us to process your personal data by giving your consent, you have a right of revocation with effect for the future pursuant to Art. 7 (3) GDPR.
You are free to complain to a supervisory authority if you believe that our processing of your personal data violates the GDPR or other national and international data protection laws.
