This privacy statement provides users with information on the nature, extent and purpose of the collection and use of their data by the responsible provider.
Collection of general information
Every time information about the services offered by SEC Technologies is accessed, company information and current contributions to the subject of information security, information (also referred to as server log files) is automatically collected by us or the webspace provider.
Among other information this includes: website name, file, date, data volume, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your Internet provider, the referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our offer) and the IP address.
Without this information, it would not be technically possible to deliver and display the website content. In this respect, collecting data is absolutely necessary. Furthermore, we use this information for statistical purposes. They help us to optimise our services and technology. We also reserve the right to check the log files in case of suspected illegal use of our services.
IoT Inspector Newsletter
If you sign up for our newsletter, we use the data you enter exclusively for this purpose or to inform you about the circumstances relevant to this service or the registration. We do not pass on this data to third parties.
A valid (working) email address is required to receive the newsletter. The IP address which you use to register for the newsletter and the date on which you order the newsletter will be saved. This data serves as evidence of misuse, if a third-party email address is used to register for the newsletter. In a further step to ensure that bogus email addresses are not added to our mailing list by third parties, we work with the “double-opt-in” process in accordance with the law. As part of this process, the signing up to the newsletter, the sending of the confirmation mail and the receipt of the registration confirmation are all recorded.
You have the right to revoke your consent to the storage of this data, your email address and its use for the sending of the newsletter at any time. We provide a cancellation link in each newsletter and here on our website. You also have the opportunity to inform us of your request to cancel using the contact methods mentioned in this document.
The newsletter is sent via “MailChimp”, a newsletter distribution platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their further data described in the context of these notes, are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA. MailChimp uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp can use this data according to its own information to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the sending and presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them down or pass them on to third parties.
We trust in the reliability and IT and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and thus commits itself to comply with EU data protection regulations. Furthermore, we have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp. This is a contract in which MailChimp undertakes to protect the data of our users, to process them on our behalf in accordance with their data protection regulations and in particular not to pass them on to third parties. The data protection regulations of MailChimp can be viewed here.
Integrating third-party services and content
Our range includes content, services and services from other suppliers. For example, this might be videos, graphics or images from other websites. In order for this data to be retrieved and displayed in the user’s browser, transmitting the IP address is absolutely necessary. The providers (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) detect the IP address of the respective user.
Even if we try to use only third-party vendors who only need the IP address to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address or other information about you is stored by them. If we know that the IP address is going to be stored, we inform our users of this.
We save personal data according to the principles of data avoidance and data economy only as long as it is required or prescribed by law (statutory storage period). If the purpose of the information collected ceases to be relevant or the storage period expires, the data is blocked or deleted.
In principle, you have the rights to information, correction, deletion, restriction, data transferability, revocation and objection. Exceptions: if the issue relates to the prescribed data storage for business processing or if the data is subject to statutory retention requirements.
For these purposes please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
In order to allow for a data lock at any time, it is necessary to keep the data in a lock file for checking purposes. If there is no legally required archiving obligation, you can also request the deletion of the data. Otherwise, we will lock the data if you so desire.
Changes to our data protection policy
In order to ensure that our data protection policy always complies with the current legal requirements, we reserve the right to make changes at any time. This also applies in the event that the data protection policy has to be adapted due to new or revised activities, for example new services. The new data protection policy takes effect on your next visit.
