In the following, we provide information about the collection of personal data when using
- our website https://www.honeysales.io/
- our profiles on social media.
Personal data is any data that can be related to a specific natural person, such as their name or IP address.
1.1. Contact details
The controller within the meaning of Art. 4 para. 7 EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is honeysales GmbH, Oranienstraße 10-11, 10997 Berlin, Germany, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are legally represented by Daniel Brusch and Stefan Meyer.
Our data protection officer can be reached via heyData GmbH, Schützenstraße 5, 10117 Berlin, www.heydata.eu
1.2. Scope of data processing, processing purposes, and legal bases
We detail the scope of data processing, processing purposes, and legal bases below. In principle, the following come into consideration as the legal basis for data processing:
• Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 it. a GDPR serves as our legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent.
• Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b GDPR is the legal basis insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract, e.g. if a site visitor purchases a product from us or we perform a service for him. This legal basis also applies to processing that is necessary for pre-contractual measures, such as in the case of inquiries about our products or services.
• Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. c GDPR applies if we fulfill a legal obligation by processing personal data, as may be the case, for example, in tax law.
• Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis when we can rely on legitimate interests to process personal data, e.g. for cookies that are necessary for the technical operation of our website.
1.3. Data processing outside the EEA
Insofar as we transfer data to service providers or other third parties outside the EEA, the security of the data during the transfer is guaranteed by adequacy decisions of the EU Commission, insofar as they exist (e.g. for Great Britain, Canada, and Israel) (Art. 45 para. 3 GDPR).If no adequacy decision exists (e.g. for the USA), the legal basis for the data transfer is usually, i.e. unless we indicate otherwise, standard contractual clauses. These are a set of rules adopted by the EU Commission and are part of the contract with the respective third party. According to Art. 46 para. 2 lit. b GDPR, they ensure the security of the data transfer. Many of the providers have given contractual guarantees that go beyond the standard contractual clauses to protect the data. These include for example, guarantees regarding the encryption of data or regarding an obligation on the part of the third party to notify data subjects if law enforcement agencies wish to access the respective data.
1.4. Storage duration
1.5. Rights of data subjects
Data subjects have the following rights against us with regard to their personal data:
• Right of access,
• Right to correction or deletion,
• Right to limit processing,
• Right to object to the processing,
• Right to data transferability,
• Right to revoke a given consent at any time.
Data subjects also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of their personal data. Contact details of the data protection supervisory authorities are available at https://www.bfdi.bund.de/EN/Service/Anschriften/Laender/Laender-node.html.
1.6. Obligation to provide data
Within the scope of the business or other relationship, customers, prospective customers or third parties need to provide us with personal data that is necessary for the establishment, execution, and termination of a business or other relationship or that we are legally obliged to collect. Without this data, we will generally have to refuse to conclude the contract or to provide a service or will no longer be able to perform an existing contract or other relationship.Mandatory data are marked as such.
1.7. No automatic decision-making in individual cases
As a matter of principle, we do not use a fully automated decision-making process in accordance with Article 22 of GDPR to establish and implement the business or other relationships. Should we use these procedures in individual cases, we will inform you of this separately if this is required by law.
1.8. Making contact
When contacting us, e.g. by e-mail or telephone, the data provided to us (e.g. names and e-mail addresses) will be stored by us in order to answer questions. The legal basis for the processing is our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR) to answer inquiries directed to us. We delete the data accruing in this context after the storage is no longer necessary or restrict the processing if there are legal retention obligations.
1.9. Customer surveys
From time to time, we conduct customer surveys to get to know our customers and their wishes better. In doing so, we collect the data requested in each case. It is our legitimate interest to get to know our customers and their wishes better so that the legal basis for the associated data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit f GDPR. We delete the data when the results of the surveys have been evaluated.
Interested parties have the option to subscribe to a free newsletter. We process the data provided during registration exclusively for sending the newsletter. Subscription takes place by selecting the corresponding field on our website, by ticking the corresponding field in a paper document, or by another clear action, whereby interested parties declare their consent to the processing of their data so that the legal basis is Art. 6 para. p. 1 lit. a GDPR. Consent can be revoked at any time, e.g. by clicking the corresponding link in the newsletter or notifying our e-mail address given above. The processing of the data until revocation remains lawful even in the event of revocation.
Based on the consent of the recipients (Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR), we also measure the opening and click-through rate of our newsletters to understand what is relevant for our audience.
3. Data processing on our website
3.1. Notice for website visitors from Germany
Our website stores information in the terminal equipment of website visitors (e.g. cookies) or accesses information that is already stored in the terminal equipment (e.g. IP addresses). What information this is in detail can be found in the following sections.
This storage and access is based on the following provisions:
• Insofar as this storage or access is absolutely necessary for us to provide the service of our website expressly requested by website visitors (e.g., to carry out a chatbot used by the website visitor or to ensure the IT security of our website), it is carried out on the basis of Section 25 para. 2 no. 2 of the German Telecommunications Telemedia Data Protection (Telekommunikation-Telemedien-Datenschutz-Gesetz, "TTDSG").
• Otherwise, this storage or access takes place on the basis of the website visitor's consent (Section 25 para. 1 TTDSG).The subsequent data processing is carried out in accordance with the following sections and on the basis of the provisions of the GDPR.
3.2. Informative use of our website
During the informative use of the website, i.e. when site visitors do not separately transmit information to us, we collect the personal data that the browser transmits to our server in order to ensure the stability and security of our website. This is our legitimate interest so the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.
These data are:
• IP address
• Date and time of the request
• Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
• Content of the request (specific page)
• Access status/HTTP status code
• Amount of data transferred in each case
• The website from which the request comes
• Operating system and its interface
• Language and version of the browser software.
This data is also stored in log files. They are deleted when their storage is no longer necessary, at the latest after 14 days.
3.3. Web hosting and provision of the website
3.4. Contact form
When contacting us via the contact form on our website, we store the data requested there and the content of the message.
The legal basis for the processing is our legitimate interest in answering inquiries directed to us. The legal basis for the processing is therefore Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.
We delete the data accruing in this context after the storage is no longer necessary or restrict the processing if there are legal retention obligations.
3.5. Vacant positions
We publish positions that are vacant in our company on our website, on pages linked to the website, or on third-party websites.
The processing of the data provided as part of the application is carried out for the purpose of implementing the application process. Insofar as this is necessary for our decision to establish an employment relationship, the legal basis is Art. 88 para. GDPR in conjunction with Sec. 26 para. 1 of the German Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz). We have marked the data required to carry out the application process accordingly or refer to them. If applicants do not provide this data, we cannot process the application.
Further data is voluntary and not required for an application. If applicants provide further information, the basis is their consent (Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR).
We ask applicants to refrain from providing information on political opinions, religious beliefs, and similarly sensitive data in their CVs and cover letter. They are not required for an application. If applicants nevertheless provide such information, we cannot prevent their processing as part of the processing of the resume or cover letter. Their processing is then also based on the consent of the applicants (Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR).
Finally, we process the applicants' data for further application procedures if they have given us their consent to do so. In this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR.
We pass on the applicants' data to the responsible employees in the HR department, to our data processors in the area of recruiting, and to the employees otherwise involved in the application process.
If we enter into an employment relationship with the applicant following the application process, we delete the data only after the employment relationship has ended. Otherwise, we delete the data no later than six months after rejecting an applicant.If applicants have given us their consent to use their data for further application procedures as well, we will not delete their data until one year after receiving the application.
3.6. Booking of appointments
Site visitors can book appointments with us on our website. For this purpose, we process metadata or communication data in addition to the data entered. We have a legitimate interest in offering interested parties a user-friendly option for making appointments. Therefore, the legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR. Insofar as we use a third-party tool for the agreement, the information on this can be found under "Third parties".
3.7. Customer account
3.8. Single sign-on procedure Google
3.9. Third parties
We use Calendly to schedule appointments. The provider is Calendly LLC, BB&T Tower, 271 17th St NW, Atlanta, GA 30363, USA. The provider processes usage data (e.g. web pages visited, interest in content, access times), contact data (e.g. e-mail addresses, telephone numbers), and master data (e.g. names, addresses) in the USA.
The legal basis for the transfer to a country outside the EEA is standard contractual clauses. The security of the data transferred to a third country (i.e. a country outside the EEA) is guaranteed by standard data protection clauses (Art. 46 para. 2 lit. c GDPR) adopted by the EU Commission in accordance with the examination procedure under Art. 93 para. 2 of the GDPR, which we have agreed to with the provider.
4. Data processing on social media platforms
We are represented in social media networks in order to present our organization and our services there. The operators of these networks regularly process their users' data for advertising purposes. Among other things, they create user profiles from their online behavior, which are used, for example, to show advertising on the pages of the networks and elsewhere on the Internet that corresponds to the interests of the users. To this end, the operators of the networks store information on user behavior in cookies on the users' computers. Furthermore, it cannot be ruled out that the operators merge this information with other data. Users can obtain further information and instructions on how to object to processing by the site operators in the data protection declarations of the respective operators listed below. It is also possible that the operators or their servers are located in non-EU countries so that they process data there. This may result in risks for users, e.g. because it is more difficult to enforce their rights or because government agencies access the data.
If users of the networks contact us via our profiles, we process the data provided to us in order to respond to the inquiries. This is our legitimate interest so the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.
