We have appointed a Data Protection Officer who can be contacted at privacy@ecosio.com. If you have any questions or concerns or would like to know more about how we collect, store or use your personal data, please contact our Data Protection Officer.  

For ecosio, your right to privacy and protection of your personal data is important. We want to make sure that your personal data is in safe hands and are therefore committed to protect your personal data in accordance with the data protection laws applicable in the respective country and our data protection guidelines. In particular, personal data is processed in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR and in accordance with the applicable country-specific data protection regulations (e.g. the applicable data protection regulations in the United Kingdom). The transfer of data for processing within and outside ecosio for the purpose of commissioned processing is based exclusively on commissioned processing agreements. Our privacy policy defines the treatment of data in relation to our website and services that refer to it.

General information on data processing

To provide our services and operate our website and other communication channels, we process personal data of the users with whom we interact. We only use your personal data to the extent necessary for specific purposes. Personal data is information that can be directly linked to you. This includes, for example, information such as your name, e-mail address or telephone number. When you visit our website, additional data is also automatically collected for technical reasons. This includes information such as your IP address, which is assigned to you by your internet service provider when you connect to the internet, details of the website from which you accessed our website and information about the internet browser used (technical information). It is possible that this technical information may contain personal data in certain cases

We collect and use personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our contents and services. The collection and use of personal data regularly takes place only after prior consent has been obtained. An exception applies in those cases in which obtaining prior consent is not possible for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations. 

If we disclose data to other persons and companies (processors or third parties) in the course of our processing, transmit it to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of a legal permission (for example, if a transmission of the data to third parties, such as to payment service providers, is necessary for the performance of the contract pursuant to Art 6 (1) lit b GDPR), you have consented, a legal obligation provides for this or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.). If we commission third parties with the processing of data based on a so-called “data processing agreement”, this is done based on Art 28 GDPR. If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) or if this is done in the context of using third-party services or disclosing or transferring data to third parties, this is only done in order to fulfil our (pre-)contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, due to a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we only process or allow the processing of data in a third country if the special requirements of Art 44 ff GDPR. We will not use your personal data for purposes incompatible with the processing purposes about which you have been informed unless such use is required or permitted by law or is in your own vital interests. 

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Art 6 (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis. When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures. If processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art 6 (1) c GDPR serves as the legal basis. If 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 outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art 6 (1) lit f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

We store your personal data only as long as it’s necessary for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract if we have a legitimate interest or as long as you have not revoked your consent. We delete or block your personal data as soon as the purpose for storing it no longer applies. We adhere to the statutory retention periods for the duration of the storage of personal data.

Visit our website

When you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. The following data is collected for a limited period of time: 

  1. Information about the browser type and version used
  2. The operating system of the user
  3. The user’s internet service provider
  4. The IP address of the user
  5. Date and time of access
  6. Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website

This data is partly stored in so-called log files of our system. This data is only needed to analyze any malfunctions and is deleted within thirty days at the latest. The temporary storage of the IP-address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of our website.

We use the Google Analytics 4 (“GA4”) version of the Google Analytics service on our website. The service is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), whereby the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for the European area (“Google“). Google Analytics is used to analyze website usage by users. Google uses so-called cookies, i.e. text files that are stored on your terminal device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. 

GA4 does not log or store IP addresses. The IP address data of website users from the EU is only used to derive location data and is deleted immediately afterwards.

You have the option of preventing the cookie from being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we would like to point out that this no longer guarantees that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies. Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP-address) from being sent to and used by Google Inc. by downloading and installing the available browser plug-in HERE. You can also find more information on data use by Google Inc. HERE.

As an extension to Google Analytics, Google Signals can be used on this website to create cross-device reports. If you have activated personalised ads and linked your devices to your Google account, Google can analyse your usage behaviour across your devices and create database models, including cross-device conversions, subject to your consent to the use of Google Analytics. We do not receive any personal data from Google, only statistics. If you want to stop the cross-device analysis, you can deactivate the “personalized advertising” function in the settings of your Google account. Follow the instructions HERE. You can also find more information about Google Signals HERE.

We also use the remarketing function of Google on our website. This Google marketing service allows us to display advertisements for and on our website in a more targeted manner to present users only with ads that potentially match their interests. To carry out the analysis of user behavior when visiting our website, Google uses so-called cookies. For this purpose, Google stores a small file with a sequence of numbers in the browsers of the website visitors. The analysis of user behavior forms the basis for the creation of interest-based advertisements. If you subsequently visit another website in the Google advertising network, you will be shown advertisements that are highly likely to take into account previously accessed product and information areas. This number is used to record visits to the website as well as anonymized data on the use of the website. However, no personal data of the website visitors is stored.  The purpose of Google Remarketing is merely to display advertising that is  relevant to interest. The information collected by Google marketing services about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the USA.

You can permanently disable the use of cookies by Google by downloading and installing the plug-in provided HERE

We also use Google Ads on our website. Google Ads is an online advertising program from Google. Our website uses Google Ads with conversion tracking. This means that in the case of Google AdWords, each AdWords customer receives a different “conversion cookie”. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained with the help of the cookie or AdWords pixel is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers. However, you will not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.

If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can also refuse the setting of a cookie required for this – for example, by means of a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies. You can find more information about Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking HERE.

We also use Google AdSense on our website. We can integrate third-party advertisements based on the Google marketing service “AdSense”. AdSense also uses cookies to enable Google and its partner websites to serve ads based on users’ visits to this website or other websites on the internet. We may also use Google Tag Manager and Google Phone Tracking to integrate and manage Google’s analytics and marketing services on our website. For more information on Google’s use of data for marketing purposes, please click HERE

We use so-called session or flash cookies on our website. Cookies are text files that are stored in the internet browser or by the internet browser on the user’s computer system. When a user calls up a website, a cookie may be stored on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string of characters that enables the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is called up again. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For these, it is necessary that the browser is recognized even after visting another website. In addition, we also use – if you allow this – so-called persistent cookies that are used beyond the session (“cross-session cookies”). These cookies in particular serve to make the internet offer user-friendly, more effective and safer. The user data collected through technically necessary cookies are not used to determine your identity. Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted to our site by the user. Therefore, you as a user also have full control over the use of cookies and these cookies are deleted again when the browser is closed. You can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your internet browser. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated, it may no longer be possible to use all the functions of the website.

On our website we use various tools from Outbrain UK Ltd (5 New Bridge Street, London, EC4V6JA, UK) (“Outbrain”), which enable us to analyze the use of our website through cookies.

Through Outbrain, we can point you to relevant content on our website. The recommendations are based on the content you have read so far. The content displayed by Outbrain is automatically controlled and provided by Outbrain. The display of recommendations is pseudonymized, i.e. it takes place via a generated character string that is assigned to you. No personal data is stored in the process. Outbrain records the anonymized IP address of the user, the type of browser and the source of the device. 

In addition, we also use “Outbrain Amplify” and “Outbrain Pixel” for marketing and optimization purposes on our website. These tools allow us to analyze your usage behavior and improve our offer.

If data is transferred to Outbrain Inc. or to other recipients outside the EU/EEA, Outbrain will ensure that the transfer complies with EU data protection laws and that an adequate level of protection is provided. Appropriate safeguards have been put in place to protect the data. You can find more information about Outbrains data protection HERE.

To optimise our services, we use Lead Forensics on our website, a service provided by Lead Forensics, Building 3000, Lakeside, North Harbour, Portsmouth, PO6 3EN, UK.Lead Forensics does not use cookies. When you visit our website, your IP address is collected and transmitted to Lead Forensics, where it is then compared with their own databases in a global database of companies and business information. Personal data such as first name, surname, email address, social profiles and IP address may also be stored here. This data is not compared with the specific IP address. Lead Forensics does not assign the IP address to the personal data stored in the database. As soon as the data has been matched, the IP address is anonymised by Lead Forensics. After the data comparison, we receive the information from Lead Forensics’ database that has been assigned to the IP address in question. This allows us to see who is interested in our products. Lead Forensics provides us with the actual history of your visit to our website. This also includes an overview of all the pages you have visited and how long you have been on this page.

In this way, users are presented with different versions of a website or its elements, such as input forms, on which the placement of content or the labelling of navigation elements may differ. Based on user behaviour, e.g. longer visits to our website or more frequent interactions with the elements, it can then be determined which of these websites or elements better meet the needs of the users.We also use the Matomo Heatmap Module.

  • if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data relating to you for a period of time that enables us to verify the accuracy of the personal data; 
  • the processing is unlawful and you refuse to erase the personal data and instead request the restriction of the use of the personal data; 
  • we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need them for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims, or 

if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art 21 (1) GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether our legitimate grounds override your grounds. If the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, this data may – apart from being stored – only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise, or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State. If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

You can request that we delete the personal data concerning you without delay. Please note that we are only obliged to delete it if we process it unlawfully or the processing disproportionately interferes with your legitimate interests in protection. In addition, there are legally recognized reasons that prevent immediate deletion, e.g. the fulfilment of a legal obligation – such as legally regulated retention obligations or the assertion of legal claims.

If we have made personal data of yours public in the course of our activities and we are obliged to delete it pursuant to Art 17 (1) GDPR, we shall of course, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, take appropriate measures to inform third parties that you, as the data subject, have requested the deletion of all personal data.

If you have made a right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing to us, we are obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data relating to you has been disclosed of the rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. You have the right to be informed about these recipients.

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from us, provided that the processing is based on consent (Art 6 (1) (a) or Art 9 (2) (a) of the GDPR) or on a contract pursuant to Art 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR and the processing is carried out with the help of automated processes.

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out based on Article 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. We shall no longer process the personal data relating to you unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims. If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purposes of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purposes of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes. You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out based on the consent until the revocation.

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller, (2) is permitted by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and that law contains adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or (3) is made with your explicit consent. 

Regarding the cases referred to in (1) and (3), we shall take reasonable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from ecosio, to express your point of view and to contest the decision.

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in the Member State of your residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR. The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of judicial remedy.
