Data protection declaration

1. General information

Status of the Privacy Policy: 19.08.2019

Responsible for the processing of personal data is SkillDisplay GmbH.

2. Security and anonymity

We care about the protection of your personal data. Therefore we process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal regulations (GDPR, TKG 2003). In this privacy policy we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within our platform.

3. General purposes of data processing

We process personally identifiable information in order to comply with the contractual obligations we have assumed with your registration on the platform. The processing of the data is a prerequisite for us to provide you with the functions of the platform, such as the management of skills. We store, process and transmit your files and related information for this purpose.

4. Use of cookies

SkillDisplay also uses "cookies" to personalize and optimize your online experience and time. A cookie is a text file that is either stored temporarily in the computer's memory ("session cookie") or stored on the hard disk ("permanent" cookie). Cookies contain e.g. information about your previous use of SkillDisplay or information about which pages you have visited so far. Cookies are not used to run programs or download viruses to your computer. The main purpose of cookies is rather to make the use of the service as comfortable as possible for you.

SkillDisplay predominantly uses "session cookies" that are not stored on your hard drive and that are automatically deleted when you log out and - depending on the browser setting - when you leave the browser. Session cookies are used for login authentication.

You have the option to refuse the use of cookies at any time. This is usually done by choosing the appropriate option in the browser settings or through additional programs. For details, see the help function of the browser used. If you opt out of enabling cookies, this may reduce the performance of the service and adversely affect your use of SkillDisplay services.

5. Data usage

Personal data is collected primarily in order to make it possible for you to use SkillDisplay safely, smoothly, efficiently and personally. First and foremost, these data are used for:

  • Providing the services desired by the user and the services requested by the user
  • Adapt, measure and improve the performance of SkillDisplay and its content
  • Notification of SkillDisplay's services, customizations and actions (as permitted by this privacy policy and the required consent)
  • Sending information from SkillDisplay (as permitted by this privacy policy and obtaining the necessary consent)
  • Prevent, detect and investigate potentially prohibited or illegal activities and enforce SkillDisplay's Terms and Conditions
  • resolve disputes and resolve issues.

To protect against people who abuse SkillDisplay, we use various automated monitoring tools to randomly analyse activities on the platform and check user input for plausibility, without us being legally bound to do so. Certain strings or logins from different users, such as those coming from a computer, can cause users to lock out.

We conduct analysis on the behaviour of our users in the context of the use of its service and create for this purpose anonymised or pseudonymous user profiles. These data are stored within the scope of the EU General Data Protection Directive. The creation of user profiles is for the sole purpose of making the service of SkillDisplay more efficient, safer and more user-friendly.

6. Cookies and other technologies

Our website uses the web analysis service Matomo. For this purpose, cookies are used (see above), which allows an analysis of the use of the website by customers. The information generated thereby is stored on our servers.

You can prevent this by setting up your browser so that no cookies are stored. Your IP address will be collected but pseudonymised [eg by deleting the last 8 bits]. As a result, only a rough localization is possible.

7. Data transfer

We only pass on data to third parties if this happens as part of our contractual obligations to provide the services in the SkillDisplay platform, optional data such as telephone number and address have been explicitly released in the profile, we are legally, legally or officially obliged to do so.

The data transmitted to other members as part of a SkillDisplay profile is linked to the user name chosen by the user. Optional phone numbers and the user's email address remain secret by default.

8. Data storage

Personal data is deleted immediately after the end of use. If deletion is contrary to legal, statutory or contractual reasons, we must save your data in accordance with the applicable legal requirements.

9. Newsletter

From time to time - depending on the occasion - we will send you information about SkillDisplay, which informs about updates, extensions and changes or provides information in the course of the contractual relationship. We only send newsletters and information on products and services of partner companies, if this is expressly desired. If information is no longer wanted, the reception can be switched off at any time. At the end of each newsletter there is a clear indication of the possibility of contradiction as well as a corresponding link.
