      7. use of pipedrive

      We use Pipedrive, a CRM platform for sales, on our website. The service provider is the American company Pipedrive Inc, 460 Park Ave South, New York, NY, 10016, USA.

      Pipedrive also processes data from you in the USA, among other places. We would like to point out that according to the opinion of the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for the transfer of data to the USA. This may be associated with various risks for the legality and security of data processing.

      Pipedrive uses so-called standard contractual clauses (= Art. 46. para. 2 and 3 DSGVO) as the basis for data processing with recipients located in third countries (outside the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, i.e. in particular in the USA) or a data transfer there. Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) are templates provided by the EU Commission and are intended to ensure that your data complies with European data protection standards even if it is transferred to third countries (such as the USA) and stored there. Through these clauses, Pipedrive undertakes to comply with the European level of data protection when processing your relevant data, even if the data is stored, processed and managed in the USA. These clauses are based on an implementing decision of the EU Commission. You can find the decision and the corresponding standard contractual clauses here, among other places: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj?locale=de

      The Pipedrive data processing condition (Data Protection Addendum), which corresponds to the standard contractual clauses, can be found at. https://www-cms.pipedriveassets.com/documents/2021-02-16-Pipedrive-DPA-Signed.pdf.

      You can learn more about the data processed through the use of Pipedrive in the Privacy Policy on https://www.pipedrive.com/en/privacy.

      15. third country transfer

      When using Google tools, we transfer your shortened IP address to the USA, among other things. In addition, data may also be transferred outside the EU/EEA when using the tools from Microsoft, LinkedIn, Hotjar and Facebook. If service providers outside the EU/EEA third country are used and no so-called "adequacy decision" of the EU Commission exists for this country, these service providers are obligated to comply with the level of data protection in Europe by agreeing to the EU standard contractual clauses in addition to written instructions. Unfortunately, however, due to the laws of non-EU countries (e.g., under the so-called Cloud Act in the U.S.), even if corresponding agreements and sets of rules are concluded, there is a possibility that government agencies in particular will access your personal data without us or you being able to know or prevent, stop or control this. For these reasons, your consent, for example, to the use of cookies (e.g. for Google Analytics) also includes the purpose of data transfer to countries outside the EU. For further information, please contact our data protection officer. Otherwise, we do not transfer your personal data to countries outside the EU or the EEA or to international organizations.
