  1. General information

This website is provided by the company Personio Foundation gGmbH i.G., an organization with headquarters in Germany that provides financial and strategic support to nonprofit organizations and social enterprises. We provide you with this data privacy policy to inform you of how we handle your personal data collected on this website.

The controller under data protection law is:

Personio Foundation gGmbH i.G.

Rundfunkplatz 4

80335 München

Data Protection contact: info@www.personio.foundation

 

  1. Access and activity logs (“server logs”)

Each access to this website automatically causes general protocol data, so-called server logs, to be collected. As a rule, this data is a pseudonym and thus does not allow for inferences about the identity of an individual.

 

Without this data, it would, in some cases, be technically impossible to deliver or display the contents of the software. In addition, processing this data is absolutely necessary under security aspects, in particular for access, input, transfer, and storage control. Furthermore, this anonymous information can be used for statistical purposes and for optimizing services and technology. In addition, the log files can be checked and analyzed retrospectively when unlawful use of the software is suspected. The legal basis for this is section 15 subsection 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), as well as article 6 (1) f of the GDPR.

 

Generally, data such as the domain name of the website, the web browser and web-browser version, the operating system, the IP address, as well as the timestamp of the access to the software is collected. The scope of this log process does not exceed the common log scope of any other site on the web.

 

These access logs are stored for a period of up to 7 days. There is no right to object to this.

 

  1. Error logs

So-called error logs are generated for the purpose of identifying and fixing bugs. This is absolutely necessary to ensure we can react as quickly as possible to possible problems with displaying and implementing content (legitimate interest). As a rule, this data is a pseudonym and thus does not allow for inferences about the identity of an individual. The legal basis for this is section 15 subsection 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), as well as article 6 (1) f) of the GDPR.

 

When an error message occurs, general data such as the domain name of the website, the web browser and web-browser version, the operating system, the IP address, as well as the timestamp upon occurrence of the respective error message and/or specification is collected.

 

These error logs are stored for a period of up to 7 days. There is no right to object to this.
