In principle, the clockworkX GmbH website can be used without providing any personal data. If a data subject wishes to use our company’s special services via our website, processing of personal data may be necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, email address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to clockworkX GmbH. With this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Data subjects are also informed about their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
The development of the website was conceptualized with the maxim to collect as little data as possible from you. Basically, it is possible to visit our website without providing personal information. Only when you choose to use certain services (such as the contact via Email) will the processing of personal data become necessary. When doing so, we always take care to process your personal data only in accordance with the legal regulations or your consent. We comply with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applicable from 25.5.2018 and the applicable national regulations, such as the German Federal Data Protection Act, the German Teleservices Act or other more specific data protection laws.
clockworkX GmbH, as the controller, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.

6. Collection of general data and information
The website of clockworkX GmbH collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server’s log files. The following can be recorded: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that use an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address).
When using this general data and information, clockworkX GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber-attack.

These data will be transmitted to us on a purely voluntary basis. A passing on of the personal data communicated to us in this way to third parties does not take place.
8. Comment function in the blog on the website
clockworkX GmbH offers users the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog located on the website of the person responsible for processing. A blog is a portal that is usually listed on a website and can be viewed publicly, in which one or more people, called bloggers or web bloggers, can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.
If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the data subject, information on the time the comment was entered and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject are saved and published. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the data subject’s Internet service provider (ISP) is also logged. The IP address is saved for security reasons and in the event that the data subject violates the rights of third parties by posting a comment or posts illegal content. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the person responsible for the processing, so that he could, if necessary, exculpate himself in the event of an infringement.
9. Subscription to comments in the blog on the website
The comments made on the clockworkX GmbH blog can generally be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, it is possible for a commentator to subscribe to the comments following a comment on a particular blog post.

The option to subscribe to comments can be terminated at any time.

The website is hosted by an external service provider in Germany. In doing so, we ensure that data processing takes place in Germany alone.

If the data controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after the announcement of the rejection decision, provided that there are no other legitimate interests of the data controller that conflict with the deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, an obligation to provide evidence in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeinen Gleichbehandlungsgesetz AGG).
15. Data protection provisions on the application and use of iStock & Getty Images images
The controller has integrated components of the i Stock & Getty Images company on this website. Founded in 2000, iStock created the crowd-sourced stock industry and became the original source for user-generated stock photos, vectors and illustrations, and video clips. iStock is part of the Getty Images family of companies.
Getty Images is an American photo agency. An image agency is a company that offers images and other image material on the market. Photo agencies generally market photographs, illustrations and footage. Different customers, in particular website operators, editorial offices of print and TV media and advertising agencies, license the images they use through an image agency.
The Getty Images components are operated by Getty Images International, 1st Floor, The Herbert Building, The Park, Carrickmines, Dublin 18, Ireland.
Getty Images allows (if necessary free) embedding of stock images. Embedding is the integration or integration of certain third-party content, such as text, video or image data, which is provided by a third-party website and then appears on your own website. A so-called embed code is used for embedding. An embed code is an HTML code that is integrated into a website by an Internet site operator. If an embedding code has been integrated by a website operator, the external content of the other website is immediately displayed by default as soon as a website is visited. To display the external content, the external content is loaded directly from the other website.
Via the technical implementation of the embedding code, which enables Getty Images’ images to be displayed, the IP address of the Internet connection via which the person concerned accesses our website is transferred to Getty Images. Getty Images also records our website, the browser type used, the browser language, the time and the length of access. In addition, Getty Images can collect navigation information, i.e. information about which of our subpages were visited by the data subject and which links were clicked, as well as other interactions that the data subject carried out when visiting our website. This data can be saved and evaluated by Getty Images.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of I Stock and Getty Images can be found here and here.
16. Integration of Services and Content of Third Parties
16.1 Data protection regulations for the application and use of YouTube
The controller has integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, evaluate and comment on them free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and TV programs, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be called up via the Internet portal.
YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically activated by the respective YouTube component prompted to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found here.
As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google are made aware of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject. If the data subject is logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website the data subject visits by calling up a subpage that contains a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the person concerned.
YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to YouTube at the same time as accessing our website; This happens regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of their YouTube account before accessing our website. The use of YouTube is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
16.2 Data protection regulations for the use of Google Maps
The controller has integrated components of Google Maps on this website. Map material from map.google.de is integrated into the website.
The operating company is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Maps component (map section) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically triggered by the respective Google component to download a representation of the corresponding Google component from Google.
As part of this technical process, Google is made aware of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in to Google at the same time, Google may recognize which specific subpage of our website the data subject visits by calling up a subpage that contains a Google Maps element. This information is collected by Google and assigned to the respective Google account of the person concerned.
Google always receives information via the Google component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to YouTube at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the maps or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Google, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Google account before visiting our website. The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and an easy findability of the places we have indicated on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
16.3 Further information about Google services
Please also note the Google guidelines on data protection: here. This helps to manage your profile’s own settings.
17. Legal basis for processing
Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR.
The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR.
In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh them. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
18. Legitimate interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party
Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR is our legitimate interest in carrying out our business activities for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.
19. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data. Necessity for the conclusion of the contract. Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data. Possible consequences of not providing.
We will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contracting party).
Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data that we subsequently have to process. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would result in the contract not being concluded with the person concerned.
Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of not providing the personal data.
20. References and Links
Third party service providers may have different and separate terms in dealing with the collection, processing and use of personal data. It is therefore advised to check the websites of third parties about their practice for the handling of personal data before entering personal data.
21. Existence of automated decision making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
