Wie viele Websites verwendet GCS automatische Datenerfassungs-Tools, wie Cookies, eingebettete Web-Links und Web-Beacons. Diese Tools erfassen bestimmte Standardinformationen, die Ihr Browser an unsere Website sendet. Das können beispielsweise Informationen zum Browsertyp sein oder die Adresse der Website, über die Sie auf unsere Website gelangt sind. Es können auch folgende Informationen erfasst werden:

  • Your IP address (Internet Protocol address): This address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer or device when you connect to the Internet. It is unique and assigned to you by your Internet service provider or IT department on a TCP/IP network. Among other things, the IP address allows web servers to locate and identify your device.

Widgets are used on our website. Widgets are interactive mini-programs that run on our website to provide specific services from other companies. One possible use, for example, is to display news, opinions or videos. Widgets may collect personal information such as your email address. Widgets may also set cookies to ensure proper functionality. The data collected by widgets is subject to the privacy policy of the company that created the widget in question.

Some web browsers have the ability to enable a „Do Not Track“ feature that sends signals to the websites you visit indicating that you do not want your online activity tracked. This is not the same as blocking or deleting cookies, as browsers with a „do not track“ feature may continue to accept cookies.

Currently, there is no industry standard governing how companies should respond to „do not track“ signals, though such a standard may be developed in the future. GCS’s websites do not currently recognize or respond to „do not track“ signals. If we do so in the future, we will describe in what manner in this Privacy Policy.

We partner with third parties to display advertisements on our website or to manage our advertisements on other websites. Our partners may use cookies or similar technologies to display advertisements to you based on your browsing habits and interests. You can choose not to have these advertisements displayed to you.

We will then promptly take appropriate action to investigate and remedy the problem.

Consent to the transfer, processing and storage of personal data

Da GCS ein weltweit tätiges Unternehmen ist, übertragen wir Ihre personenbezogenen Daten möglicherweise an GCS in den USA, an eine der weltweit verteilten GCS Tochtergesellschaften oder an vorstehend beschriebene Dritte und Geschäftspartner, die sich in verschiedenen Ländern auf dem Globus befinden. Durch die Nutzung unserer Websites und Lösungen oder die Bereitstellung personenbezogener Daten stimmen Sie im Umfang der geltenden Gesetze zu, dass diese Daten an ein Ziel außerhalb Ihres Aufenthaltslands übertragen und dort verarbeitet oder gespeichert werden, wo unter Umständen andere Datenschutzstandards gelten.

GCS schützt und ermöglicht die globale Übertragung von personenbezogenen Daten auf mehrere Arten:

  • EU-US-Datenschutzschild und Swiss-US Privacy Shield

GCS nimmt an den Frameworks und Prinzipien des EU-USDatenschutzschilds und des Swiss-US Privacy Shield teil (Privacy ShieldPrinzipien) und hat sich seine Compliance zertifizieren lassen. Diese Frameworks und Prinzipien wurden vom US-Wirtschaftsministerium ausgearbeitet und regeln die Erfassung, Verwendung und Aufbewahrung von personenbezogenen Daten, die aus der Europäischen Union (EU) und der Schweiz übertragen werden. GCS hat sich verpflichtet, beim Umgang mit sämtlichen aus den EU-Mitgliedsstaaten und der Schweiz erhaltenen personenbezogenen Daten die jeweils geltenden Prinzipien der Frameworks des EU-US-Datenschutzschilds und des Swiss-US Privacy Shield einzuhalten.

Sollten Bedingungen aus dieser Datenschutzrichtlinie in Konflikt mit den Prinzipien des EU-US-Datenschutzschilds oder des Swiss-US Privacy Shield stehen, so gelten die Prinzipien des EU-US-Datenschutzschilds bzw. des Swiss-US Privacy Shield. Weitere Informationen zu diesen Privacy ShieldFrameworks finden Sie auf der Website zum Thema Privacy Shield des USamerikanischen Wirtschaftsministeriums. GCS ist laut diesen Privacy Shield- Frameworks für die Verarbeitung der erhaltenen personenbezogenen Daten verantwortlich und agiert folglich bei deren Übertragung an Dritte als dessen Vertreter.

GCS hält die Privacy Shield-Prinzipien für alle Weiterleitungen von personenbezogenen Daten aus der EU und der Schweiz ein, einschließlich der Haftungsvorschriften für Weiterleitungen. In bestimmten Situationen muss GCS auf Aufforderung einer Behörde möglicherweise personenbezogene Daten aus Gründen der nationalen Sicherheit herausgeben oder um Anforderungen bei der Strafverfolgung nachzukommen. Im Hinblick auf unter das Privacy Shield-Framework fallende empfangene und übertragene personenbezogene Daten unterliegt GCS den Durchsetzungsbefugnissen der amerikanischen Federal Trade Commission.

  • Binding corporate regulations of the EU – Controller

GCS’s Global Privacy Program and Global Policies have been approved by the Dutch, Polish, Spanish and other relevant European data protection regulators as adequately protecting the privacy, fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals in the transfer of personal information protected under European law.

GCS’s Binding Corporate Rules – The Controller (BCR-C) enables global transfers of European personal information from GCS to benefit from adequate protection.
