The use of our Internet pages is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject. The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations as Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) and Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz).

would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process.
As the controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed.
For technical reasons, the following data sent by your internet browser to us or to our server provider will be collected:
– browser types and versions used
– operating system
– website from which you came (referrer URL)
– webpages on our site visited
– date and time of your visit
– IP address
The data thus collected will be temporarily stored, but not in association with any other of your data. They are evaluated for statistical purposes in order to optimize our website and our offers.

To be read at: https://help.crisp.chat/en/article/whats-crisp-eu-gdpr-compliance-status-nhv54c/
The personal data sent by e-mail or contact form will not be passed to third parties. There is also no comparison of this data with data, which may be collected by other components of our site.
The data collected when contacting us via our chat function from Crisp IM SAS may be passed on to third parties. All partners agree to comply with the Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Use of a newsletter
When registering for our newsletter, you provide us with your e-mail address and optionally other data. We use this information exclusively to send you the newsletter. The data you enter when registering for our newsletter will remain stored by us until you unsubscribe from our newsletter.

Newsletter Subscription with hCaptcha
We use hCaptcha (hereinafter “hCaptcha”) on this website. The provider is Intuition Machines, Inc., 2211 Selig Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90026, USA (hereinafter “IMI”).
The purpose of hCaptcha is to check whether the data input on this website (e.g. in a contact form) is made by a human or by an automated programme. For this purpose, hCaptcha analyses the behaviour of the website visitor on the basis of various characteristics.
This analysis begins automatically as soon as the website visitor enters a website with activated hCaptcha. For the analysis, hCaptcha evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time spent by the website visitor on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to IMI. If hCaptcha is used in “invisible mode”, the analyses run completely in the background. Website visitors are not notified that an analysis is taking place.
The storage and analysis of the data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its web offers from abusive automated spying and from SPAM. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user’s terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) as defined by the TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time.
The data processing is based on standard contractual clauses contained in the Data Processing Addendum to IMI’s General Terms and Conditions or the Data Processing Contracts.
Analysis tools and advertising
The data generated with etracker is processed and stored by etracker on behalf of the provider of this website exclusively in Germany and is therefore subject to the strict German and European data protection laws and standards. etracker has been independently audited, certified and awarded the data protection seal of approval (ePrivacyseal) in this regard.
Data processing is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f (legitimate interest) of the German Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). Our concern in terms of the DSGVO (legitimate interest) is the optimisation of our online offer and our web presence. Since the privacy of our visitors is important to us, data that may allow a reference to an individual person, such as the IP address, login or device identifiers, are anonymised or pseudonymised as soon as possible. No other use is made of the data, nor is it merged with other data or passed on to third parties.
You can object to the aforementioned data processing at any time by clicking on the slider. The objection has no adverse consequences. If no slider is displayed, the data collection is already prevented by other blocking measures.

Crisp is a French company, thus its supervisory authority is based in France. Crisp is operated by Crisp IM SAS, a French limited company.
Crisp is GDPR-compliant, and strictly enforces the regulation as to protect the user data we store. The list of our providers (ie. Data Processors) is available, and kept up to date, in our Data Processing Agreement (DPA). Also note that all Crisp data processor providers have been checked to be all GDPR-compliant.
All Crisp data is held on servers hosted in the European Union. Our Messaging data is stored in the Netherlands and our Plugin data is stored in Germany. Servers are hosted by DigitalOcean (with a subsidiary in the EU subject to EU law).
Crisp uses relay servers outside EU to reduce latency for users connecting for terminals far from Crisp´s EU servers. Those servers do not store any data except connection logs (IP address, date of connection, user-agent and source website). Those relay servers are hosted in The United States of America, United Kingdom and Singapore. Crisp does not plan to store data outside the EU in the future.
Certain points of Crisp GDPR compliance are subject to the law of France, where Crisp is incorporated. Thus, Crisp has to be compliant with French data protection law, as well as EU GDPR law. GDPR compliance and French law is applied worldwide.
Crisp resolves end-user identity information (first and last name, avatar, company) from external APIs. Those external APIs source this data from public information that the end-user consented to share on a third-party service (eg. on social networks such as LinkedIn or Twitter). This end-user identity information is stored on Crisp services, for as long as the Crisp customer wishes them to be stored in their Crisp CRM database. The service used to discover such user information is Enrich, a service owned and operated by Crisp.

Data protection for applications and the application procedures
The data controller shall collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of the processing of the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is the case, in particular, if an applicant submits corresponding application documents by e-mail or by means of a web form on the website to the controller. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant by the controller, the application documents shall be automatically erased four months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller are opposed to the erasure. Other legitimate interest in this relation is, e.g. a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (Gleichbehandlungsgesetz).
Data protection provisions about the application and use of LinkedIn
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to the download of a display of the corresponding LinkedIn component of LinkedIn. Further information about the LinkedIn plug-in may be accessed under https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. During the course of this technical procedure, LinkedIn gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.
LinkedIn receives information via the LinkedIn component that the data subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is logged in at LinkedIn at the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the LinkedIn button or not. If such a transmission of information to LinkedIn is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their LinkedIn account before a call-up to our website is made.
Data protection provisions about the application and use of YouTube
On this website, the controller has integrated components of YouTube. YouTube is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to set video clips and other users free of charge, which also provides free viewing, review and commenting on them. The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, UNITED STATES. The YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, UNITED STATES.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding YouTube component. Further information about YouTube may be obtained under https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. During the course of this technical procedure, YouTube gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in on YouTube, YouTube recognizes with each call-up to a sub-page that contains a YouTube video, which specific sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the data subject. This information is collected by YouTube and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.
YouTube will receive information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website, if the data subject at the time of the call to our website is logged in on YouTube; this occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such a transmission of this information to YouTube is not desirable for the data subject, the delivery may be prevented if the data subject logs off from their own YouTube account before a call-up to our website is made.
YouTube’s data protection provisions, available at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube.
Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for 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 party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
Information / revocation / cancellation
On the basis of the Federal Data Protection Act you can contact us free of charge with questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data and their correction, blocking, deletion or revocation of a given consent. We point out that you are entitled to a correction of incorrect data or deletion of personal data should this claim not be prevented by a statutory retention obligation.
