Scope of the Processing of Personal Data

As a matter of principle, the personal data of our users is only processed to the extent of necessary deployment regarding the functions of our website, our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users is regularly carried out only with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where obtaining prior consent is not possible for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations. 

Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, the Article 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. Processing personal data to comply with the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 (1) lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing. 

General Information on Data Deletion and Storage Period

The data processed by us will be deleted or restricted in its processing in compliance with the statutory provisions, in particular in accordance with Art. 17 and 18 DS-GVO. Unless expressly stated within the scope of this data protection declaration, we delete data stored by us as soon as it is no longer required for its intended purpose. Beyond the point in time when the purpose ceases to exist, data will only be retained if it is required for other and legally permissible purposes or if the data must continue to be retained due to legal retention obligations. In these cases, processing is restricted, i.e. blocked and not processed for other purposes. 

Rights of the Data Subject

Data subjects may assert the following free rights against the data controller in accordance with the statutory provisions: 

  • Right to information (Art. 15 DSGVO); 
  • Right to rectification or erasure (Art. 16 and Art. 17 DSGVO); 
  • Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 DSGVO); 
  • Right to data portability (Art. 20 DSGVO); 
  • Right to object to processing (Art. 21 DSGVO). 

Data subjects also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data by the controller. 

Processing When Visiting and Interacting With the Website

Host Provider 

The website is hosted by Amazon Web Services, Inc. ("AWS"), 410 Terry Avenue North, Seattle, Washington 98109, USA. The host receives the above-mentioned data as a processor and is obliged in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO to process data only on instruction. To justify the transfer to a third country, we have agreed on so-called standard contractual clauses with the host provider. Accordingly, the host provider undertakes to maintain a European level of data protection. AWS has joined the so-called Privacy Shield agreement as a company.

Contact Form, CRM System, Online Marketing Activities

Description and Scope of Data Processing

On our website, it is possible to fill out several forms (contact, demo, free trial, newsletter, etc.), for example to make a demo appointment or download materials. In doing so, the data from the input mask is transmitted to us. For the processing of the data, your consent is obtained during the registration process and reference is made to this privacy policy.  

In addition, you have the option of subscribing to the newsletter via the forms provided. You can find more information below under "Pipedrive" and "HubSpot". 

Pipedrive 

We use Pipedrive to improve customer relationship management activities. The legal basis for the structured processing in this respect, based on legitimate interests, is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. For this purpose, we use the company Pipedrive OÜ, Paldiski mnt 80, Tallinn 10617, Estonia as a processor.

HubSpot

Purpose of Data Processing

We use HubSpot, a service of HubSpot Inc. to realize our online marketing activities. These include, among others: 

  • Content management (website and blog) 
  • Email marketing (newsletter as well as automated mailings, e.g. to provide downloads) 
  • Social media publishing & reporting 
  • Reporting (e.g. traffic sources,website visits, etc. ...) 
  • Contact management (e.g. user segmentation & CRM) 
  • Landing pages and contact forms 

The collection of the user's email address via contact forms is used to deliver the newsletter and other informational materials. The collection of other personal data during the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the email address used.  

Our registration service allows visitors to our website to learn more about our company, download content and provide them with materials according to preferences. 

The information collected in this way is stored on HubSpot servers. It may be used by us to contact visitors to our website (upon consent) and to determine which of our company's services are of interest to them. 

Duration of Storage

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. Accordingly, the user's email address is stored for as long as the user wishes to receive material from Code intelligence and/or the subscription to the newsletter is active. The other personal data collected during the registration process is usually deleted after a period of seven days.  

Processed Data

If you would like to use the marketing services offered on the website, we require an email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive marketing materials such as the newsletter. 

Use of the Hubspot Marketing Platform as a Newsletter Dispatch Service, Measurement of the Opening Rate

This website uses the services of HubSpot for sending newsletters and providing other marketing materials, such as whitepapers and one-pagers. The provider is HubSpot, Inc, 25 First Street, 2nd Floor, Cambridge, MA 02141 USA, privacy@HubSpot.com. HubSpot is a service that can be used, among other things, to organize and analyze the sending of newsletters. If you enter data for the purpose of receiving newsletters (e.g. e-mail address), this data will be stored on HubSpot's servers in Ireland and, if applicable, in the USA. 

HubSpot is certified under the terms of the "EU - U.S. Privacy Shield Framework" and is subject to TRUSTe 's Privacy Seal as well as the "U.S. - Swiss Safe Harbor" Framework. 

HubSpot allows us to analyze our newsletter and marketing campaigns. When you open an email sent with HubSpot, a file contained in the email (so-called web-beacon) connects to HubSpot's servers. This makes it possible to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked. In addition, technical information is recorded (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information can be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of marketing campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future content to the interests of the recipients. 

If you do not want HubSpot to perform any analysis, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter and from receiving further marketing emails. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in each message. 

We have concluded a so-called "Data Processing Agreement" with HubSpot, in which we oblige the company to protect our customers' data and not to pass it on to third parties. This agreement can be viewed at the following link: https://legal.hubspot.com/de/dpa. 

For more details, please see HubSpot's privacy policy at: http://legal.hubspot.com/de/privacy-policy. 

Furthermore, we use Hubspot for website analysis. More information under "Analysis of search behavior". 

Legal Basis, Unsubscribing From the Newsletter and Other Emails (Revocation), Storage Period.

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).  

You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter and other marketing materials at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter or in writing by e-mail (info@code-intelligence.de). 

The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation. 

The data you have provided us with for the purpose of receiving emails will be stored by us until you unsubscribe. After unsubscribing from the newsletter and other marketing materials, your deposited data will be deleted from our servers as well as from HubSpot's servers. Data stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.

Furthermore, you can object to the storage and evaluation of this data by HubSpot at any time. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is permanently stored in your browser, which causes HubSpot not to collect any data for storage and evaluation. 

However, if you delete this cookie intentionally or unintentionally, the objection to data storage and evaluation will also be removed and can be renewed via the above link.

Google Adwords With Conversion Tracking

Code Intelligence uses Google AdWords, an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to display ads in Google search results. Advertisers define keywords on the basis of which ads will be displayed if people search for them. Google AdWords belongs to Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. 

Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Data

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is Article 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. Accordingly, there is a legitimate interest in the insertion of personalized advertising, market research and/or the user-friendly design of the website. 

Purpose of Data Processing

Google AdWords is used for the purpose of advertising the website. Personalized and interest-oriented advertising by third-party companies serves to market the solutions and services offered by Code Intelligence. 

Duration of Storage, Possibility of Objection and Elimination

Google AdWords sets a conversion cookie if users come to the presence via the advertisements. This cookie has a lifespan of 30 days and collects anonymized user data. In this way, returning users and their page views can be identified within this time frame. Google and Code Intelligence as operators of the site can see whether defined goals, so-called conversions, have been achieved on the website. This information is used to measure success and optimize advertising measures. The data collected in this way includes, among other things, the IP address of the internet connection you are using. This information is transferred by Google to the USA, stored and possibly passed on to third parties. 

As already described, you can object to the storage and evaluation of this data by Google at any time. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is permanently stored in your browser, which causes Google not to collect any data for storage and analysis. 

Click Here to Object to the Use of Google Analytics for This Website. 

However, if you delete this cookie intentionally or unintentionally, the objection to data storage and evaluation will also be lifted and can be renewed via the above link. Alternatively, most modern browsers have a so-called "Do Not Track" option, which tells websites not to track your user activity. Google respects this option. 

Furthermore, you have the option to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, you must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads from the Internet browser you are using and make the desired settings there.

Integrated Third-Party Services

YouTube Videos

The responsible party embeds videos from the "YouTube" platform of the provider Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (parent company: Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). When one of the pages equipped with a YouTube plugin is visited, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. In the process, the YouTube server is informed which pages have been visited. If the data subject is logged into their YouTube account, this enables YouTube to assign the surfing behavior directly to the respective personal profile.  

The parent company is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active ). 

When YouTube videos are used, Google uses cookies to collect information about visitors to the web pages, for example to collect call-up statistics. A connection to Google's DoubleClick network is also established by means of a cookie in order to display the most relevant advertisements possible. In doing so, Google records which advertisements were displayed to you and which of them you called up. The use of DoubleClick cookies enables Google and its advertising network to display ads based on your previous visits to websites (or apps). The information generated by the cookies is transferred by Google to a Google server for analysis and stored there. You can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookies listed in this section and thus on the use of the data related to this online offer, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de 

You can find out more information about Google's use of data, setting and objection options on Google's websites at: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners and at http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads and https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated 

Clickmeeting Webinars

Code Intelligence offers webinars via the website. For this purpose, the Clickmeeting service is used (ul. Arkońska 6/A4, 80-387 Gdańsk, Poland). As soon as you register for a webinar, you leave the website of Code Intelligence GmbH and are on the website of the provider. 

Code Intelligence GmbH has therefore designated the provider Clickmeeting as a processor and concluded a contract in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO. The legal basis for the processing of personal data when forwarding from the Code Intelligence website to that of the provider results in this case from Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b).
