Provision of information
Processing of personal data in connection with social network use
On its website, SAIS invites users to visit its company presence on social networking sites and platforms including, but not limited to, LinkedIn.
These online presences are operated in order to interact with the users that are active on these sites and platforms and to inform them about projects and services. By clicking on the social network’s logo, the user is redirected to the SAIS presence on the respective network.
When users visit the platform, personal data is collected, used and stored by the operators of the respective social network, but not by SAIS. This is also the case even if the users themselves do not have an account with the respective social network.
The individual data processing operations and their scope differ depending on the operator of the respective social network. SAIS has no influence on the collection of data or its further use by the social network operators. We are not fully aware of the extent to which, where and for how long the data is stored; to what extent the networks comply with existing obligations regarding erasure; what analyses are conducted and links established with the data; and to whom the data is disclosed.
Disclosure to third parties
SAIS does not pass on personal data to third parties unless it is legally obliged or entitled to do so by law.
Transfer of data to countries outside Germany
SAIS does not transfer personal data to third countries. When using social media, the privacy policies of the respective providers apply.
Duration of data retention
User data will not be kept any longer than is necessary for the purpose for which it is processed or as required by law.
IT security of user data
SAIS accords great importance to protecting personal data. For this reason, technical and organisational security measures ensure that data is protected against accidental and intentional manipulation and unintended erasure as well as unauthorised access. These measures are updated accordingly based on technical developments and adapted continuously in line with the risks.
