Privacy Policy

The protection of your personal data is very important to us. We treat this topic with a great deal of care and therefore inform you in the following about the handling of your personal data when visiting our website.

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, such as name, address and e-mail address.

1. Controller

The responsible controller according to Art. 4 para. 7 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is re:cap Technologies GmbH i.G., Wiener Straße 18, 10999 Berlin, Germany, privacy@re-cap.com.

2. Purpose and legal basis for the processing of personal data

a. When visiting our website
While visiting our website we only collect the data that your browser transmits to our server.

This is the following information required to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security: IP address, date and time of the request, content of the request (specific page), access status/HTTP status code, amount of data transferred in each case, website from which the request comes (referrer), browser, operating system and its user interface, language and version of the browser software, cookies. These data do not enable us to identify specific individuals.

The data is stored by us for technical security reasons, e.g. to prevent attacks on our web server; however, the data is anonymized after seven days at the latest by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish any reference to the individual website user. The legal basis for the processing described above is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR (processing is necessary in relation with controller’s legitimate interests).

b. Processing of Personal Data to Provide Services to Our Customers and For the Conduct of Our General Business Activity
We also process personal data in order to provide our services to our customers and as part of other activities that are part of the conduct of our business.

Depending on the type of service we provide, the way we process personal data may vary. For example, we process personal data about the responsible contact persons at our customers in order to prepare and process the contractual relationship with our customers and for our own marketing purposes as ad within the limits of the law. We may also process personal data about our customers' employees or our customers' customers to the extent necessary to assist the customer in developing or improving its business processes. To the extent required by law, we may act in this context as our customer's so-called data processor on the basis of an agreement pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR to the extent that processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures at the request of the data subject, or Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR to safeguard our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of our customer while safeguarding the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. Finally, we are entitled to a certain extent to fulfil legal obligations (e.g. data retention pursuant to applicable accounting and tax regulations) on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR for the processing of personal data.

Such personal data will only be stored for as long as the respective purpose requires (e.g. for the fulfilment of statutory retention obligations for the respective prescribed retention period or for the execution of the contract for the duration of the contract).

To the extent necessary in connection with the performance of the aforementioned service or other business activities, we may also transfer personal data to third parties, e.g. to hardware or software service providers used by us or our customer (e.g. hosting providers, data centers, etc.) in compliance with the requirements of the law.
