Privacy policy

Thank you for visiting our website www.monday-consulting.com. We appreciate your interest in our company, and in our products and services. While we perform thorough reviews before linking to third-party content, we are not liable for such content, since we are not responsible for the transfer of this information, and have neither chosen the recipients of the information transferred nor chosen or modified the information transferred.

We take the protection of your personal data that is collected, processed and used in the context of your visit to our website very seriously, and all such activities are performed in compliance with applicable laws. Information about these laws is available from sites such as www.bfd.bund.de.

This privacy policy explains what kinds of information we collect during your visit to our website and how this information is used.

1. Collection and storage of personal data; nature and purpose of data usage

Every time a customer (or other visitor) accesses our website, information provided by the web browser used on your device (such as a PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) is sent automatically to the server hosting our website. This information is temporarily stored in a record file known as a ‘log file’.

Collection of the following data involves no action on your part and data is stored until automatic deletion:

  • IP address of the computer making the request, device ID or unique device code, plus device type
  • Name of the file accessed and volume of data transferred, plus date and time of access
  • Message confirming successful access
  • Domain making the request
  • Description of the type of web browser being used and the operating system of your device (possibly), and the name of your access provider
  • Your browser history data and your standard weblog information
  • Location data, including location data from your mobile device. Please note that you can deactivate or otherwise configure the use of location services for most mobile devices in the settings for your mobile device.

Our legitimate interest in data collection pursuant to point (f) of art. 6(1) of the EU GDPR is derived from the following purposes: ensuring error-free connectivity and ease of use for our website visitors, performing analyses of system security and stability, as well as other administrative purposes.

We will never use the data we collect for the purpose of attempting to identify you as a person.

2. Sharing of personal data

Your data is not shared with third parties for any purposes other than those listed in the following sections.

We share your data with third parties, only if

  • you have given your express consent to this sharing (pursuant to point (a) of art. 6(1) of the EU GDPR);
  • this sharing is necessary for managing our contractual relationship with you (point (b) of art. 6(1) of the EU GDPR);
  • we are required by law to share this data (point (c) of art. 6(1) of the EU GDPR); and/or
  • this sharing is required in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding legitimate interest in your data not being shared in this way (point (f) of art. 6(1) of the EU GDPR).

However, the scope of the data transferred for any of these reasons is kept to the minimum necessary.

The provisions of our privacy policy reflect applicable data protection legislation and your data is processed only within the Federal Republic of Germany and/or the European Union. No data is transferred into third countries and no such transfers are envisaged.

3. Rights of the data subject

You are welcome to ask us for information about the personal data we have stored about you at any time (art. 15 of the EU GDPR). In particular, you may request information about: the purposes of our processing; the category of personal data; the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed; the planned period of storage; the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection; the existence of a right to lodge a complaint; the origin of your data, if we did not collect your data originally; and the existence of an automated decision-making process, including profiling.

You may also request the rectification of any errors in personal data collected about you or the completion of incomplete data collected about you (art. 16 of the EU GDPR).

You also have the right to request us to restrict the processing of your personal data, assuming the necessary legal conditions have been met (art. 18 of the EU GDPR).

You have the right to receive the personal data we have stored about you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, or to request the transfer of the data to another controller (art. 20 of the EU GDPR).

Moreover, you are also granted the right popularly known as the ‘right to be forgotten’: this means you can ask us to erase your personal data, assuming the necessary legal conditions have been met (art. 17 of the EU GDPR).

Independently of this right, we automatically erase your personal data once the purpose for which we collected the data no longer applies or if data processing was performed unlawfully.

Pursuant to art. 7(3) of the EU GDPR, you have the right to withdraw consent you gave to us at some earlier point in time. If you withdraw your consent, we are prohibited in the future from performing the data processing that was based on this consent.

In cases where you are granted a legal right to object, you may also object to the processing of your personal data at any time. In the event of a withdrawal of consent on your part, we will also automatically erase your personal data (art. 21 of the EU GDPR).

If you wish to exercise your right to withdraw consent or your right to object, simply email us at:datenschutz@monday-consulting.com.

In the event of a breach of data protection law, you have the right to lodge a complaint at a supervisory authority, pursuant to art. 77 of the EU GDPR.

4. Duration of data storage

We store the data we have collected for as long as is required in order to fulfil the contracts we have received or until you exercise your right to erasure or to data portability (transfer to another controller), whichever is the sooner.

5. Cookies

We use cookies on our website. These cookies are small text files that your browser creates automatically and which are stored on your user device when you visit our website. Inside the cookie, information is stored that corresponds to the specific user device that is being used. However, this does not mean that we gain direct knowledge of your identity. Our use of cookies is primarily intended to make your visit to our website more convenient and comfortable.

We also use cookies to record and analyse statistics about website usage, and to optimise our internet presence to make it easier for you to use. If you visit our website again, these cookies enable us to recognise the fact that you have visited our website previously. These cookies are deleted automatically after a specified period of time. The data processed by cookies is required for the stated purposes to safeguard our legitimate interests and those of third parties pursuant to point (f) of art. 6(1) of the EU GDPR. Most browsers will accept cookies automatically. If you do not want us to recognise information about your user device on a second visit, please configure your web browser so that it deletes cookies from your device’s storage, blocks all cookies or warns you before a cookie is stored on your device. Please consult the help and support area of your web browser to find out how you can block and delete cookies. Here, you will also find instructions about how to search for the file or folder in which cookies are stored. Whatever action you take, please note that deactivating all cookies can lead to a situation where you are unable to use all of the functionality offered by our website.

The provisioning of our online platform makes use of both Java applets and JavaScript. If you do not want to make use of these utility programs or active content for security reasons, you should deactivate the corresponding setting in your web browser.

6. Online marketing / analysis tools

Our tracking measures are performed pursuant to point (f) of art. 6(1) of the EU GDPR and section 15(3) of the German Teleservices Act (TMG). The tracking measures we have put into place are intended to ensure that the website design meets user needs and can be continuously optimised to this end. We also use the tracking measures to record statistics about the usage of our website, and for the purpose of analysing and optimising our internet presence. These interests are legitimate pursuant to the laws and regulations mentioned above.

Google Analytics

For the purposes of ensuring our websites meet user needs and can be continuously optimised, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (https://www.google.com/intl/en/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; ‘Google’). In the context of this usage, pseudonymised user profiles are created, as well as cookies (see also section 5). The information generated by this cookie about your use of this website, such as the web browser type/version, the operating system you use, the referrer URL (the previous page you were viewing), the hostname (IP address) of the computer being used for access, and the time of the server request is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This information is used in order to analyse the use of the website, to provide consolidated reports about website activity, and to provide other services associated with website usage and internet usage for the purposes of conducting market research, and to ensure that the design of this website meets user needs. These purposes also grant us a legitimate interest in data processing. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is section 15(3) of the TMG in conjunction with point (f) of art. 6(1) of the EU GDPR.

This information may also be shared with third parties where this is required by law or in cases where third parties act as processors for this data. Your IP address will never be aggregated with other data held by Google. All IP addresses are anonymised to ensure that association is not possible (known as ‘IP masking’).

The data we transmit, which may be linked with cookies, user codes (e.g. user IDs) or advertising IDs, is deleted automatically after 14 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has expired is performed automatically once a month.

For Google’s terms and conditions of use and the privacy policy for Google Analytics, please visit https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html and https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

By configuring the appropriate settings in your browser application, you can prevent the installation and storage of cookies. We must advise you, however, that blocking cookies may mean that you are unable to utilise all of the features that are offered by this website.

In addition, you can also prevent the recording and transmission of data generated by the cookie in relation to your use of the website (including your IP address), and the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available from the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

As an alternative to the browser add-on, particularly when browsing on mobile devices, you can also prevent data collection by Google Analytics by using the following link. This will set an opt-out cookie that prevents your data being collected in the future when you visit this website. Deactivate Google Analytics. The opt-out cookie is set only in this browser and only for our website, and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will need to set the opt-out cookie again.

Google Adwords / conversion tracking

We also use the online advertising software Google AdWords as part of Google AdWords conversion tracking. Google conversion tracking is an analysis service made available by Google. If you click on an advert served by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is stored on your user device. These cookies, which become invalid after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and cannot therefore be used to identify you personally. If you visit certain internet pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and Monday Consulting can both identify that you have clicked on the advert and have been redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. Accordingly, there is no possibility of cookies being tracked across websites from different AdWords customers. The information that is collected with the help of the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have decided to make use of conversion tracking. The service provides customers with the total number of users who have clicked on their advert and been redirected to a webpage with an embedded conversion tracking tag. Customers do not receive any information with which they could personally identify users, however. These purposes also grant us a legitimate interest in data processing. The legal basis for the use of Google AdWords/conversion tracking is section 15(3) of the TMG in conjunction with point (f) of art. 6(1) of the EU GDPR.

If you do not want to be tracked, you can withdraw your consent to this usage by preventing the installation of the cookie from the ‘googleadservices.com’ domain. You do this by making a corresponding setting in your web browser software (deactivation option). You will then no longer be included in the conversion tracking statistics. For further information, as well as the privacy policy published by Google, please visit: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/, https://policies.google.com/privacy.

Google Adsense

This website uses Google Adsense, a service to embed advertisements that is provided by Google, Inc. (‘Google’). Google Adsense uses ‘cookies’, which are text files that are stored on your computer and that enable the analysis of your use of the website. Google AdSense also uses ‘web beacons’ (invisible images). These web beacons can be used to report on information such as visitor traffic to this website. The information generated by cookies and web beacons about your use of this website (including your IP address) and the delivery of advertising formats is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google may choose to share this information with its business partners. Google will not aggregate your IP address with other data stored about you, however. You can prevent the installation of the cookie by configuring an appropriate setting in your browser software. We would remind you, however, that if you do so, you may no longer be able to use the full range of functionality as offered by this website. By using this website, you give your consent to the processing of the data collected about your visit by Google in the manner described and for the aforementioned purpose.

Google Remarketing

This website uses Google Remarketing, an advertising service from Google Inc. (‘Google’). Third parties, including Google, serve adverts to websites on the internet. Third parties, including Google, use cookies to serve adverts on the basis of previous visits by the same user to this website. Users can deactivate Google’s use of cookies by accessing the web page to deactivate advertising, which is located at http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html. Alternatively, users can deactivate the use of cookies by third parties by accessing the deactivation page provided by the Network Advertising Initiative, located at http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

Facebook

Our website uses social plugins (‘plugins’) from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA (‘Facebook’). If you open our website with the plugin, this plug-in creates a direct connection between your browser and the servers operated by Facebook. As a result, Facebook is notified about the fact that you have accessed the page.

If you are logged into your Facebook account, clicking the plugin means that your visit to our website can be directly associated with your profile. Even if you do not have a Facebook profile, it is still possible that your IP address will be stored by Facebook.

To find out more about the purpose and scope of data collection, and the further processing and usage of this data by Facebook, as well as your related rights and options for settings to protect your privacy, please consult the Facebook Privacy Policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

If you are a member of Facebook and you do not want Facebook to collect data about your use of our online platform and link this data to your member data as stored at Facebook, then you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website and delete the corresponding Facebook cookies. It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, such as the ‘Facebook Blocker’, for example.

7. Data security

We have taken all of the technical and organisational security precautions necessary to store your personal data so that it is not accessible to third parties or the general public. If you wish to contact us by email, please be advised that confidentiality cannot be guaranteed in all circumstances for the information that is exchanged via this particular communication channel. We therefore always recommend using the postal service if you need to send us confidential information.
