Applicability of this Privacy Policy to the Visit to Our Website

Our Privacy Policy applies exclusively to content stored on our servers. Any links on our website to third-party websites are expressly excluded.

Collection of Personal Data When Using the Website for Information Only

When you use the website for information only, i.e. when you do not log in to use the website, register or send us other information, we do not collect any personal data except for the data that your browser sends in order to enable you to visit the website.
These are the following data:
 
•    Date and time of the request
•    Duration of your visit
•    Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
•    Content of the request (specific page)
•    Access status/HTTP status code
•    Website and provider from which the request originates
•    Browser
•    Operating system
•    Language and version of the browser software
 
We store device-specific data for purposes such as the creation of usage statistics as well as identification and tracking of unauthorised attempts to access our web servers. We only create profiles concerning the use of our websites in anonymised form and only to improve the navigation and to optimise our offerings and services. No personal behaviour profiles are created or processed from the aforesaid information.

Collection of Personal Data When Using Functions of Our Website, e.g. Project Portal

Apart from the use of our website for information only, we offer you various services that you might be interested in. For these, it is usually necessary to provide additional personal data, which we use for the performance of the respective service.
Personal data such as your e-mail address or postal address will only be stored if you provide these voluntarily, e.g. within the scope of a registration, survey or application or for the performance of a contract (direct collection principle).
When you use our project portal, we store the data necessary for the performance of the contract.

To prevent unauthorised third-party access to your personal data, the connection is encrypted with SSL technology.
Moreover, we mainly use the data directly provided by you for the following areas:

  • We use your personal data for correspondence purposes, including contacts for joint projects.
  • We use your address data to occasionally inform you about our products, services and changes or to contact you electronically or by telephone for a customer/project partner satisfaction survey.
  • If you additionally use our facilities to provide us with a profile/CV, we will use the provided data in accordance with this Privacy Policy in order to set up a professional profile of you. As we will provide information on your career, your submission must not contain any sensitive details with respect to your racial or ethnic origin, political views, philosophical or religious views, trade union or political party membership, physical or mental health or genetic disposition, addictions, sexual orientation, commitment of offences or criminal proceedings and associated penalties or fines, social identification number or national identification number. Should your profile contain such details nevertheless, you agree to our possible storage of this information and use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Please also note that when you send us details concerning a reference, it is your responsibility to make sure that the respective data subject has been informed that you have forwarded his or her personal data and that the person has given his or her consent to this in writing.

If you use our services for business purposes, e.g. to acquire new projects, you need to provide personal data. Unfortunately, we cannot conduct any check against our customers' requirement profile and introduce you to the customers if you do not provide these data.

Forwarding to Third Parties

To facilitate these purposes, your data may be exchanged with third parties who are involved for order and request processing purposes. In this context, we may make your information accessible to third parties who assist us in providing you with our services. For example, this may include third parties whom we engage for the administration of our web servers or for the analysis of data and who may thus gain knowledge of your data.

If you provide us with personal data for the purpose of a potential collaboration and/or contact, we may forward these data to companies affiliated with us. These affiliated companies are KWF Business Consultants GmbH in Germany and KWF Business Consultants S.A. in Luxembourg. Personal data will also be disclosed to any third parties who acquire the business of CURE S.A. in full or a significant portion of it, regardless of the form in which this is done.

In all other cases, we will forward your personal data to third parties only if we are under the obligation to do so under regulatory provisions, if you request this to be done, if you have given your consent to the forwarding or if the data have first been anonymised/pseudonymised.

Without your consent, no data will be forwarded to any third parties domiciled in a third country.

Processors

We may engage third parties for the systemic processing of personal data. In this case, the processing will take place exclusively according to our directives and only for the said purposes in compliance with the requirements under data protection law. 

Legal Basis

The processing of personal data takes place especially on the basis of Art. 6 GDPR as well as Sections 11 and 13 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG).

Consent

By using our website and/or transmitting your personal data (e.g. by e-mail), you consent to the said storage and use of your data. By entering your personal data, you give your consent to the said processing of data as well as their use and forwarding to third parties. Where you make personal data of third parties (e.g. your employees) to us, it is your responsibility to make sure that the data subjects have given their consent to the forwarding and processing of the personal data.

Withdrawal

You can at any time object to the use or forwarding of your personal data with effect for the future, e.g. by sending an e-mail to: info(at)cure-sa.eu

Duration of the Data Storage

The storage duration of your personal data depends on the level of collaboration.
If you merely visit our home page, the storage of data will be limited to the fulfilment of the respective purpose.

If you send us application documents for a permanent job with CURE S.A., your personal data will be stored for application processing purposes and will be deleted after no more than six months, unless another legal basis for the storage of your personal data applies.

If you are interested in future projects and provide us with personal data, e.g. in the form of a CV, we will store your data until you withdraw your consent.

In the case of collaboration, the data will continue to be stored even after the collaboration ends, in order to comply with statutory retention periods and information obligations as well as for the collaboration in future projects. If you do not wish to be contacted for future projects, please send an e-mail to the following e-mail address: info(at)cure-sa.eu

Newsletter

If you subscribe to our free newsletter, we will regularly inform you on current trends, market studies, surveys and projects.

For the subscription to our newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after you provide your e-mail address, we will send you an e-mail asking you for confirmation that you wish to receive the newsletter. Click the confirmation link to finalise your subscription. You will receive our newsletter to the provided e-mail address until you unsubscribe. If you no longer wish to receive the newsletter, you can unsubscribe at any time using the following link or by sending a message to the following e-mail address: info(at)cure-sa.eu

Contact Form

If you send us requests via the contact form, we will store your details from the request form including the contact details you specified for the purpose of processing the request and any follow-up enquiries. We will not forward these data without your consent.

The data entered in the contact form are thus processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (point (a) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR). You can withdraw this consent whenever you wish. For this, simply send us an informal notice by e-mail. The withdrawal does not affect the lawfulness of the data processing prior to the withdrawal.

We will store the data you enter in the contact form until you request us to erase them, withdraw your consent to the storage or the purpose of the data storage no longer applies (e.g. after the processing of your request has been completed). Mandatory statutory provisions, including but not limited to retention periods, remain unaffected.

Commissioned Data Processing
We have concluded a commissioned data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities in connection with the use of Google Analytics.

Demographics of Google Analytics
This website uses the Demographics function of Google Analytics. This enables the creation of reports containing information on the age, gender and interests of website visitors. These data originate from Google's interest-based advertising and from the visitor data of third-party providers. These data cannot be mapped to any specific person.

Google Analytics Remarketing
Our websites use the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in connection with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland.
This function enables the linking of the advertising target audiences created with Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-based, personalised ads that have been adapted to you on the basis of your previous usage and surfing behaviour on a particular device (e.g. smartphone) can also be displayed on your other devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

If you have given your consent to this, Google will link your web and app browser history to your Google account. In this way, the same personalised ads may be displayed on every device on which you log in with your Google account.

To support this function, Google Analytics records Google-authenticated user IDs that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data in order to define and create target audiences for cross-device advertising.

You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing/targeting by deactivating personalised advertising in your Google account. To do so, follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/

The consolidation of the collected data in your Google account takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent, which you may give Google or withdraw (point (a) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR). In the case of data collection processes that are not consolidated in your Google account (e.g. because you do not have any Google account or have objected to the consolidation), the correction of data is based on point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR. The legitimate interest is that the website operated has an interest in the anonymised analysis of the website visitors for advertising purposes.
