Scope of processing of personal data

We collect and use your personal data only for statistical reasons and insofar as it is necessary to provide a functioning website or our content and services.

 

Duration of storage and routine erasure of personal data

We only process and store your personal data for as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it is stored or while we are required to do so according to law or regulation. Once the purpose ceases to apply or is fulfilled, your personal data will be erased or restricted. Where data is restricted, the data will be erased as soon as retention periods imposed by law, articles of association or contract no longer prevent this erasure from being performed, as long as there is no reason to assume that erasure would jeopardise your legitimate interests, and provided that this erasure would not involve a disproportionately high amount of effort due to the specific nature of the storage.

 

Collection of general data and information (log files)

In keeping with Art. 6, para. 1, letter f of the GDPR, our website collects a range of general data and information upon each access that is temporarily stored in a server’s log files. A log file is created as part of the automatic logging performed by the processing computer system. The following data may be collected:

  • Access to the website (date, time and frequency)
  • How you arrived at the website (referring page, hyperlink, etc.)
  • Volume of data sent
  • The browser and browser version that you are using
  • The operating system that you are using
  • The internet service provider that you are using
  • The IP address that your internet service provider assigns to your computer when connecting to the internet

Your IP address will only be stored anonymously for security reasons. The collection and storage of this data is required for the operation of the website in order to provide the website functionality and correctly deliver the content of our website. We also use the data to optimise our website and ensure the security of our IT systems. For this reason, the data is stored for a maximum of fourteen days as a technical precaution.

 

Cookies for statistical purposes

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by sites you visit, which allow any settings or other changes you have made to be reconstructed on your next visit.
These functional cookies ensure that our website works correctly. These cookies are stored for a maximum of 26 month – they are then automatically deleted.
In order to determine what content on our website is the most attractive to you, we continually monitor the number of visitors and the most commonly viewed content. We use the data we collect for statistical purposes, such as:

  • recording the number of visitors to our websites,
  • recording the amount of time visitors spend on our site,
  • recording the order of the visits to the different websites,
  • determining which parts of our website need changing or
  • optimising the website.

We use the following services for statistical purposes; you can deactivate these by installing an opt-out cookie or following a link:

 

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses cookies to allow the website operator to analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. The stored cookies of Google Analytics are automatically deleted after 14 months .

Google Maps

Google Maps API is a map service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. We use Google Maps API to display an interactive map and to create directions or to help with the search for a stationary market. When using Google Maps, information about your use of this website (including your IP address) may be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

Social media plug-ins

We use plugins of social networks on our website such as facebook.com, twitter.com, xing.com, linkedin.com, youtube.com, etc. The operators of these networks are:
a) facebook.com: Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA
b) linkedin.com: LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
c) youtube.com: YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA

These plugins are identified by the appropriate logos.
Whenever you visit a page of our website which contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the social network’s servers. The social network directly transfers the plugin content to your browser, which embeds the latter into the website. We therefore have no control over the data gathered by social networks with the aid of plugins. Based on our current knowledge, we hereby notify you of the following:

The embedded plugins tell the social network that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into the social network, your visit can be assigned to your account with this social network. If you interact with plugins, for example by clicking a ‘Like’ or ‘Tweet’ button, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to the social network and stored by it, and the function associated with the button is activated. In the case of the ‘Apply with’ function, information on the vacancy you are applying for (title of the vacancy and data on the technical implementation of this function) will be transferred to LinkedIn. Even if you are not logged into the social network, the social network may still identify and store your IP address.

For information on the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by the social network as well as on your rights in this respect and settings options to protect your privacy, please refer to your social network’s privacy policy:

a) facebook.com: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/
b) linkedin.com: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy
c) youtube.com: https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/

If you are a member of a social network and do not want it to collect data about you via our website and perhaps connect it to your account, we recommend that you log off from the social network before entering our website.

xplace uses cookies in order to improve and optimize the website on an ongoing basis. By continuing to use the website, you consent to the use of cookies.
