ATOSS Software AG (ATOSS) Privacy Policy

ATOSS appreciates your visit to this website as well as your interest in the company and its products. We take the privacy of your personal data seriously, and want you to feel comfortable when visiting our sites. When processing personal data, the protection of your privacy is an important concern to which we pay special attention in our business processes.

Collection and Processing of Personal Data -Cookies

Personal data is only stored if voluntarily disclosed by you, e.g. within the context of registration, surveys, a contest, a contact form, when applying for a position or in fulfilling a contract, or if you have consented to its storage and processing.

ATOSS also uses cookies, which are needed to allow you to navigate anywhere within the site (session cookies) without having to repeatedly log in to each separate area. The company may also use cookies to track user preferences and to allow it to optimize the websites’ design. Regarding the latter purpose, ATOSS uses Google Analytics, an Internet analytics service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files which are stored on your computer and which enable the analysis of your use of the site. The information generated by the cookie regarding your site usage is typically transferred to a Google server in the U.S. and stored there. However, in the event that IP anonymization has been activated on this site, within member States to the European Union or other contracting States to the European Economic Area Google will first truncate your IP address. Only in rare instances is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the U.S. and subsequently truncated. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google uses this information to analyze your use of the website, in order to compile activity reports for the website operator and provide additional services related to the site’s usage and internet usage. The IP address provided by your browser within the context of Google analytics will not be combined with other data at Google Inc. You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting the appropriate option in your web browser software. However, we must inform you that by doing so you may not be able to use the full range of the website’s functionalities. In addition, you can prevent the logging and processing at Google of your site-usage data generated by the cookie (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link
[http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de].

When you visit our websites, our web server may also automatically record the name of your internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, our websites which you actually visit and the date and length of your visit.

Use and Disclosure of Personal Data – Ability to Opt Out

ATOSS will use your personal data for the sole purpose of processing your orders and inquiries, for technical administration of the websites and for customer fulfillment, and only to the extent necessary in each specific case. ATOSS may also employ contractors to process data on its behalf and under its direction. The collection and/or transmission of personal data to governmental bodies and authorities only occurs where required by federal regulations. Our employees, agencies and retailers are obliged by us to observe confidentiality and to abide by ATOSS’ Codes of Conduct.

We would also like to use your data to inform you about our products and services. This is done via regular mail and email, with the latter option used only with your express consent.

If you registered for the ATOSS newsletter we use your registration data only for sending newsletters or information. ATOSS is the sole owner of the information and will never share, sell, or rent this information unless explicitly stated in this policy or ordered by a court of law. Our privacy policy is consistent with the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Contractors assigned with the technical handling of newsletters are just as well obliged to comply with these legal provisions.

Users who wish to no longer receive our newsletter or promotional emails may click on a link named “Unsubscribe” which is embedded with every newsletter sent by ATOSS in order to not receive future messages.

You may opt out of the use of your data for promotional purposes at any time, either by writing to

ATOSS Software AG
Am Moosfeld 3

T +49 89 4 27 71 0
or by contacting us at internet@atoss.com

We may also wish to ask you for your comments on our products and services. Naturally, your participation in such campaigns is entirely voluntary, and you are entitled at any time to prohibit the use of your personal data collected in surveys.

However, data gathered by us within the context of a job application is solely used for the application process itself and/or in a subsequent employment relationship.

Data collection by other vendors

ATOSS websites may contain links to other vendors’ websites which are not covered by this privacy statement. Additionally, our sites contain buttons from other vendors. These buttons are initially deactivated. Consequently, data is only transmitted to these vendors if you activate a button. Activating a button creates a connection to the vendor’s servers and transmits data such as your IP address, the address of the current site you are visiting, and an identity code if you are registered with the respective vendor. A subsequent click transmits a recommendation of the site to the vendor. The respective vendor is responsible for processing any data which you have transmitted to it by activating the button.

Right to Information

Upon request, ATOSS will make every effort to promptly inform you as to whether - and which - personal data from you is stored by us, in accordance with applicable law. If, despite our efforts to ensure accuracy and up-to-date data, incorrect information has been stored, we will correct said information at your request.

Security

ATOSS employs technical and organizational security measures in order to protect personal data maintained by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Our security procedures are continually enhanced as new technology becomes available. Should you have questions regarding how your personal data is handled, you may contact the responsible ATOSS staff, who are also available should you need information, have a suggestion or wish to make a complaint. You may send an email to internet@atoss.com.
