8. Newsletter and success metrics

We offer a free newsletter. The newsletter informs you about our company and the development of our products as well as topics related to our products and services.

To receive our newsletter, please enter your e-mail address at the following link: https://scanbot.io. After you have registered, we will send you an e-mail with which you can confirm your registration. You will only receive the newsletter once you have confirmed your registration.

We use the newsletter dispatch platform of the US provider HubSpot Inc, 25 First Street, 2nd Floor, Cambridge, MA 02141, USA ("HubSpot") to send newsletters.

Your data is processed in the USA. Legal basis for the transfer is the conclusion of standard contractual clauses approved by the EU Commission within the scope of Art. 46 (2)(c) GDPR with HubSpot.

HubSpot processes your email address to send you the newsletter on our behalf. In addition, HubSpot processes further personal data on our behalf as part of the so-called success metrics for the purpose of evaluating and optimizing our newsletter.

To measure success, our newsletters contain a so-called tracking pixel, also known as a web beacon. This is an invisible electronic image that connects to the server of our service provider HubSpot when the newsletter is opened. Depending on the functionality of your email software, you can prevent this tracking pixel from being executed by deactivating the download of embedded images.

As part of this retrieval, information about the registration page and your IP address is collected. In addition, your IP address is used to determine the location from which you accessed the newsletter. In addition, the time of retrieval, i.e. whether and when you opened the newsletter, as well as information about the links you clicked in our newsletter and other interactions on your part are collected. We can link this data to your email address. We evaluate this data to further optimize our newsletter and tailor it to the needs of our users.

Providing your email address and participating in success metrics is voluntary. In this case, your personal data is collected and processed on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR).

You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by unsubscribing from the newsletter. Each newsletter contains information on how to unsubscribe from the newsletter with effect for the future.

We also store information in order to be able to prove your consent. This information includes the date and time of your registration for the newsletter as well as your confirmation of registration and the location of your end device. This processing is based on Art. 6 (1)(c) in conjunction with Art. 7 (1) GDPR.

If you withdraw your consent, we will delete your data immediately. We will delete information that we have stored as proof of your consent after the end of the statute of limitations, i.e. after three years from the end of the year in which you withdrew consent.

9. Document search

We have integrated the DocSearch search service of Algolia SAS, 55 Rue d'Amsterdam, 75008 Paris, France ("Algolia") on the subpage https://docs.scanbot.io for searching and indexing the contents of our SDK documentation.

If you use the search function on our website https://docs.scanbot.io, the search terms you enter in the search bar are transmitted to Algolia's servers and stored there for 12 months. We receive aggregated and anonymized reports on the searches carried out to find out how often a particular term was searched for and whether the search result was clicked on. This also enables us to recognize when something could not be found.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in being able to offer you an efficient search function, in particular to make it easier for you to find certain document sections of our SDK documentation and at the same time to find out what is most frequently searched for in order to be able to continuously optimize our documentation.

This cookie is used to track if users have clicked on our adverts. We receive information from Google about the number of users who have clicked on our adverts and other information about the interactions of users after they have clicked on our adverts. The cookie is automatically deleted 30 days after you have clicked on an advert.

The use of Google Web Fonts is in our legitimate interest to ensure a uniform typeface on our website.

You can find more information about Google Web Fonts at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google's privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.

12.6 Google Recaptcha

We use the "Recaptcha" service from Google. The purpose of this is to check whether the data input on our websites (e.g. in a contact form) is made by a human or automatically by a program. For this purpose, Recaptcha analyses the behaviour of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the visitor accesses the page. Recaptcha analyses various pieces of information (e.g. IP address, time spent on the website and mouse movements made by the visitor). For this purpose, Google creates a cookie with a storage period of 6 months. The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google.

This supports us in the design and execution of contract negotiations. We do not carry out a personal analysis of the data. IP addresses that we cannot assign to a specific company are immediately discarded and not processed further.

22. Our social media presence

When you visit our social media sites (Facebook, Instagram, X/Twitter, LinkedIn), we process certain data about you, e.g. when you interact with our page or our account, like or comment on a post, reply or provide other content. The data processing in this regard is regularly carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest in providing you with the corresponding functions on our social media presences (Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR), as well as your consent to the respective operators of the platforms (e.g. Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, Twitter International, LinkedIn Ireland), Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR, or your contractual relationship with the operators of the corresponding platforms (Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR).

We would like to point out that these areas are publicly accessible and that any personal information you enter or provide when registering can be viewed by others. We cannot control how other users use this information. In particular, we cannot prevent unwanted messages from being sent to you by third parties.

Content posted in community areas can be saved for an unlimited period of time. If you would like us to remove any content you have posted, please send us an e-mail to the address given in section 1 above.

22.1 Facebook and Instagram

We maintain an online presence on Facebook and Instagram and process the data of users active there in order to communicate with them and to provide information about us. We would like to point out that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This may result in risks for users, e.g. because it may be more difficult to enforce their rights. 

We are jointly responsible with the operator of Facebook and Instagram (Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland) for the collection (but not the further processing) of data from visitors to our Facebook page (so-called "fan page") or our Instagram profile. This data includes information about the types of content that users view or interact with or the actions they take (see under "Your activity and the information you provide" in the Meta-Privacy Policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy), as well as information about users’ devices (e.g. IP addresses, operating system, browser type, language settings, cookie data; see under "App, browser and device information" in the Meta-Privacy Policy). As explained in the Meta Privacy Policy, Meta also collects and uses information to provide analytics services to site operators. We have concluded a special agreement with Meta for this purpose. You can view the essence of this agreement here: https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum

The rights of users (in particular to information, deletion, objection and the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority) are not restricted by the agreements with Meta. Further information can also be found in the "Information on Page Insights Data" (https://facebook.com/legal/terms/information_about_page_insights_data).

As a rule, user data is processed for market research and advertising purposes. User profiles can be created from user behaviour and the resulting interests. These can be used, for example, to place ads inside and outside Facebook and Instagram that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For this purpose, cookies are usually stored on the user's computer, which are used to store the user's usage behaviour and interests. In addition, data can also be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of Facebook or Instagram and are logged in there). 

For a detailed description of the respective processing and the opt-out options, please refer to Meta's privacy policy and information. Requests for information and the assertion of user rights can also be asserted most effectively there.

The processing of users' personal data is based on our legitimate interests in effectively informing users and communicating with users in accordance with Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR. If users are asked by the respective providers for consent to data processing (i.e. they give their consent, e.g. by ticking a box or confirming a button), this is the legal basis for the processing. For a detailed description of the respective processing and the opt-out options, please refer to Meta's general privacy policy at: https://www.facebook.com/policy

22.2 X/Twitter

For users in the USA, the operator is Twitter, Inc, 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. You can find Twitter International's privacy policy at: https://twitter.com/privacy. There you will also find information on the settings options for your Twitter account.

22.3 LinkedIn

For all other users, the operator is LinkedIn Corporation, 1000 W Maude Ave, Sunnyvale, CA 94085, USA. You can find LinkedIn Ireland's privacy policy here: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy. There you will also find information on the settings options for your LinkedIn profile.

LinkedIn Ireland also transfers personal data to the USA and other third countries outside the European Economic Area. You can find corresponding information at: https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/62533?trk=microsites-frontend_legal_privacy-policy&lang=en. Accordingly, LinkedIn regularly uses the standard contractual clauses approved by the EU Commission in accordance with Art. 46 (2)(c) GDPR.

We are also jointly responsible with LinkedIn Ireland for the processing of so-called Page Insights data when you visit our LinkedIn company page. For this purpose, we have concluded a joint controllership agreement with LinkedIn Ireland, which you can view here: https://legal.linkedin.com/pages-joint-controller-addendum. LinkedIn Ireland undertakes, among other things, to assume primary responsibility under the GDPR for the processing of Page Insights data and to fulfil all obligations under the GDPR with regard to the processing of Page Insights data. The processing serves our legitimate economic interests in the optimization and needs-based design of our LinkedIn company page, Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR. We would also like to draw your attention to the following:

We receive non-personal information and analyses about the use of our account and interactions with our posts from LinkedIn Ireland as part of the so-called Page Insights. We can use this information to analyze and optimize the effectiveness of our LinkedIn activities. For this purpose, LinkedIn Ireland processes in particular data that you have provided to LinkedIn Ireland via the information in your profile. This includes the following data, for example:

  • Function data,
  • Country,
  • Industry,
  • Seniority,
  • Company size and
  • Employment status.

In addition, LinkedIn Ireland will process information about how you interact with our LinkedIn company page, e.g. whether you are a follower of our LinkedIn company page.

22.4 LinkedIn campaign forms

On LinkedIn, we publish posts with interesting content with a form for downloading the content. If you fill out such a form from us on LinkedIn to download the content contained in our postings, we process your data in order to provide you with the requested information. It is necessary to provide your email address so that we can send you the requested information. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR.

If you use the form, we will also receive further information from LinkedIn that you have entered in your LinkedIn profile. In addition to your full name, your e-mail address, and your profile URL, this also includes data on your function, company name and the industry in which you work. This processing serves our legitimate economic interests in the optimization and needs-based design of our LinkedIn campaigns, Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR.

The data is stored for 90 days.

23.  Applications

If you contact us via our website to apply for a job with us, we will process your email address and the other contact details you provide as well as your application documents and the information contained therein to process your application or to decide whether to establish an employment relationship with you. Your application documents will only be made accessible to the persons responsible for the application within our company. Data processing is carried out on the legal basis of Section 26 (1) (3) of the German Federal Data Protection Act ("FDPA”).

If we are unable to offer you a position, your application documents will generally be kept for up to 3 months after the end of the respective application process in order to answer any queries in connection with your application. Further storage may take place if this is necessary for the purpose of providing evidence, in particular for the defense, assertion or enforcement of claims (Art. 6 (1) (f) or Art. 9 (2)(f) GDPR).

23.1 Automated individual case decisions (Recruitee)

Our recruiting tool "Recruitee" uses automatic decisions based on the specific requirements of a position to make the recruitment process more efficient. Using criteria such as language, skills, experience and qualifications, applicant profiles are automatically pre-sorted and matched with the required criteria. This is not done for every role, only for selected roles. This gives our recruiters a quicker, more accurate pre-selection of potential candidates who match the requirements of the position. Automated decision-making reduces the workload and increases the effectiveness of the selection process, saving valuable time and resources.

24. Disclosure of data

Unless otherwise stated in this privacy policy, your personal data will only be passed on without your express prior consent in the cases listed below:

  • Legal prosecution:
    If it is necessary to clarify an unlawful use of our services or for legal prosecution, personal data will be forwarded to external advisors (e.g. lawyers), law enforcement authorities and, if necessary, to injured third parties. However, this only happens if there are specific indications of unlawful or improper conduct. Disclosure may also take place if this serves the assertion, exercise, or defense of claims. We are also legally obliged to provide information to certain public authorities on request. These are law enforcement authorities, authorities that prosecute administrative offences subject to fines and the tax authorities.
    This data is disclosed on the basis of our legitimate interest in combating misuse, prosecuting criminal offences and securing, asserting and enforcing claims, Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR or on the basis of a legal obligation pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(c) GDPR.
  • IT service providers:
    For the provision of services, we rely on contractually affiliated third-party companies and external service providers who process personal data on our behalf and strictly in accordance with our instructions, so-called processors.
    In addition to the processors already mentioned in this privacy policy, we also use the following categories of processors:
  • IT service provider
  • Cloud service provider
  • Software service provider
  • Administration and organization:
    As part of administrative processes as well as the organization of our operations, financial accounting, and compliance with legal obligations, such as archiving, we disclose or transfer your data to the tax authorities, consultants, such as tax advisors or auditors, as well as other fee offices and payment service providers and credit agencies. This data is disclosed on the basis of our legitimate interest in maintaining our business activities, performing our tasks, asserting, exercising or defending claims, Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR or on the basis of a legal obligation pursuant to Art. 6 (1)(c) GDPR.
  • Corporate transactions:
    As part of the further development of our business, the structure of our company may change by changing its legal form, founding, buying, or selling subsidiaries, parts of the company or components. In such transactions, customer information is passed on together with the part of the company to be transferred. Whenever personal data is passed on to third parties to the extent described above, we ensure that this is done in accordance with this data protection notice and applicable data protection laws.
    Any disclosure of personal data is justified by the fact that we have a legitimate interest in adapting our corporate form to the economic and legal circumstances as required, Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR.
