 In principal, no personal data is collected when using this website, unless specified otherwise in the following sections. The personal data collected within our website will only be used without your consent to execute contracts and to process your enquires. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit approval. Please note that data transmission via the internet (e.g. email communication) can be subject to security loopholes.

2.) Data collection on www.businesslanguages.de

 Server log-files

The provider of this website collects and saves information automatically in so-called server-log files, which your browser transmits to us automatically.

 

These are:

 

  • Date and time of page view,
  • name of the viewed page,
  • the browser used,
  • the operating system used,
  • the requesting provider,
  • referrer URL (the previously visited page),
  • the IP-address.

This occurs anonymously, without personally identifying the user of the website. The data is not merged with other data sources.

Our contact form

If you send us an enquiry via the contact form, your details from the contact form including the contact details entered by you are saved by us in order to process the enquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered by you in these forms will therefore only occur on the basis of your consent (art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. An informal notification via email to us will suffice to do so. The legality of the data-processing operations up to this point will remain unaffected by the revocation.

In case of revocation, your data will be deleted immediately. Otherwise, your data will be deleted once we have processed your enquiry or the purpose of the storage has lapsed. You are entitled to receive information at any time about the data regarding your person.

Our placement test is carried out via SurveyMonkey

For our placement test, we use SurveyMonkey’s services.

3.) Plugins and tools (social media)

We use social plugins!

 Our website uses social “plugins” for Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn and, among others, embedded videos which are uploaded on the platform YouTube (BLA Webseries). These plugins are exclusively operated by the respective networks. These plugins enable you, for example, to share content or recommend it.

 FACEBOOK

Plugins of the social network Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California, 94025, USA) are integrated on our website. You will recognise the Facebook plugins by the Facebook-logo on our page. When you visit our website, a direct connection between your browser and the facebook server is established through the plugin. This means that Facebook receives the information that you have visited our website with your IP-address. Please note that we as a provider of these pages do not receive information regarding the content of the transferred data as well as its use by Facebook. You will find further information in the privacy statement of Facebook at de-de.facebook.com/policy.php. (link doesn’t work!)

If you do not want Facebook to be able to associate the visit of our pages with your Facebook account, please log out of your Facebook user account.

YouTube BLA Webseries

Our website uses plugins of the page YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of these pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

If you visit one of our pages which is equipped with a YouTube-plugin, a connection to the servers of YouTube is established. This means that the YouTube-server is informed about which of our pages you have visited.

If you are logged in to your YouTube-account, you enable YouTube to associate your browsing patterns directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube-account.

The use of YouTube occurs in the interest of creating an appealing presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest as per art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

You will find further information regarding the handling of user data in the privacy statement of YouTube at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

Instagram

Functions of the service Instagram are embedded in our pages. These functions are provided by Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA. If you are logged in to your Instagram-account, you can link content of our pages with your Instagram profile by clicking on the Instagram button. This means that Instagram can associate the visit of our pages with your user account. Please note that we as a provider of these pages do not receive information regarding the content of the transferred data, as well as its use by Instagram.

You will find more information in regard to this in the privacy statement of Instagram: http://instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/.

LinkedIn Plugin

Our website uses functions of the network LinkedIn. The provider is the LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Any time one of our pages which contains functions of LinkedIn is opened, a connection to LinkedIn’s servers is established. LinkedIn is informed that you have visited our pages with your IP-address. If you click on LinkedIn’s “recommend button” and are logged into your LinkedIn account, it will be possible for LinkedIn to associate your visit to our website with you and your user account. Please note that we as a provider of these pages do not receive information regarding the content of the transferred data, as well as its use by LinkedIn.
