1 Declaration on data protection

It is the declared aim of Novalytica (part of DataCareer GmbH, hereinafter only Novalytica) to offer you services which you can use anonymously as far as possible. We only require your personal data where this is indispensable for the use of our services and leave you the choice of how the personal data you have entered will be used and who can view it. For all personal data entrusted to us, we guarantee a trustworthy treatment and assure you that we collect this data with the greatest care, treat it strictly confidentially and handle it for the intended purpose. In doing so, we comply with the relevant legal requirements and the following principles. By entering your personal data via the Novalytica services, you expressly consent to your personal data being processed in accordance with these principles.

2 Collection and storage of data

2.1 Data Input

All data entrusted to us will be stored in a Novalytica database, kept strictly confidential and will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

2.2 Storage of access data

a) Cookies

Novalytica uses so-called cookies to simplify the use of its services and to obtain information to improve its offers. Cookies are small text files that the web browser stores in a dedicated directory in the user’s system. We use cookies to collect data about the use of our services (e.g. job advertisements clicked during a session). In this way, we can generate qualitatively better and more relevant search results for registered users, as long as they allow cookies. Users can at any time configure their browser to prevent cookies from being accepted or to receive a warning each time a cookie is accepted, thus enabling them to decide whether or not to accept the cookie in question. Novalytica’s services can be used without accepting cookies. However, the use of individual functionalities may be restricted if cookies are deactivated.

  • Access status (OK, partial content, document not found, etc.)
  • Page from which the access was made
  • Web browser used

Novalytica processes this data in anonymous form, for example to determine on which days there are particularly many visits. There is no personal evaluation of the log files.

c) Tracking and analysis tools

Novalytica uses various technical tracking and analysis systems to measure and evaluate usage and for re-marketing purposes. Such measurements can be anonymous or personal. It is possible that Novalytica or third party providers of such technical systems may pass on the collected data to third parties for processing. Further information on the collection and processing of the data can be found in the data protection regulations of the respective provider. The collection and processing of this data can be objected to by requesting an opt-out from the respective provider.
