Privacy Policy

Data protection is a matter of trust, and your trust in us matters to us. We respect your personal privacy. The protection and the lawful collection, processing and use of your personal data, therefore, are important to us. In our newsletter, we would like, above all, to inform you about current jurisprudence and/or trends in legislation and jurisprudence, as well as economic and political aspects of our departments. As such, we want to tell you about the data that are collected when you visit our website and subscribe to the newsletter, the purpose for which these data are collected, and the extent to which they are used and/or shared with a third party.

The data controller for the collection, processing and use of your personal data in accordance with the German Federal Data Protection Act is ABS Team GmbH, M├╝hlenweg 65, D-37120 Bovenden, Germany 

E-mail: contact(at)abs-team(dot)de 

2. Data Storage and Data Use

ABS Team GmbH stores the data that you entered (name, e-mail address) and uses them exclusively for the stated purpose. The data will not be merged with other data sources of ABS Team GmbH or shared with a third party. All employees of ABS Team GmbH are bound by confidentiality.

2.1 Personal Data

Personal data are information about factual or personal circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes, in particular, information that may indicate your identity, such as your name, your telephone number, your address, or your e-mail address. Statistical data that cannot be linked directly to your person are not included here.

2.2 Collection, Processing and Use of Your Personal Data

When you visit our website, the data transmitted by your browser to the server are collected and stored automatically in our server statistics (so-called log files). This involves information about the date and time of the server request, the name of the page called up, the referrer URL (the website from which you accessed our website), the type and version of your browser, your operating system, and the host name of the computer accessing our website (IP address). We do not link these data to any specific person. Subject to any statutory retention obligations, the host name (IP address) of the accessing computer is deleted or anonymized following termination of use. Anonymization means that the host name is modified in such manner that the individual information about personal or factual circumstances can no longer be linked to a specific or identifiable natural person, or only with disproportionately major efforts in terms of time, costs and labor. We do not merge these data with other data sources. We use the data exclusively for statistical purposes in order to improve our service and render it more user-friendly.

3. Cookies

Our website uses cookies, which are small text files that are stored on the user's computer. Most of the cookies used are so-called session cookies, which facilitate access to our website and are deleted immediately after the visit to the website. If you do not wish to install cookies on your computer, you can change your browser settings accordingly. You will still be able to use our website. After making the appropriate setting changes ("Do not use cookies"), no more cookies will be stored on your computer. But it must be pointed out that the use of our website may become limited, such as in terms of speed.

4. Other Data/Online Recruiting Portal/Contact Form

Furthermore, we collect personal data only if and when you initiate contact with us through the contact form that is available on the website or in any other manner. In such case, we use these data only for the purpose of responding to your inquiry and for technical administration.

5. Web Analysis through Google Analytics

We use tracking technologies to improve our website continuously. We use the services of Google Analytics for this purpose. Google Analytics is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies (see above) that allow for the usage of our website to be analyzed by Google. The information generated by cookies about the usage of our website is transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and stored there. At our initiative, only a shortened version of your IP address is collected by Google, which ensures anonymization and does not indicate your identity ("_anonymizeIP()"). Google uses this information in order to analyze your use of our website, to generate reports on the website activities for us, and to provide us with further services in connection with the usage of the website and the Internet. Google shares these data with a third party only in accordance with statutory provisions or in the context of contract data processing. Under no circumstances will Google aggregate your data with other data collected by Google.

If you do not agree with this, you can configure your browser in such manner that it rejects cookies, or you can prevent the collection by Google of data that are generated by cookies in relation to your use of these webpages (including your IP address) and the processing by Google of these data by downloading and installing the browser plugin.
