1. General

Alphary GmbH (hereinafter referred to as “ALPHARY”) takes the protection of your personal data very seriously and collects, processes and uses your data only in accordance with the standards of the legal data protection regulations.

If links to other pages online are found on this website, this briefing does not apply for data collection and usage on the linked pages, as ALPHARY does not have any kind of influence on their set up and content.

2. Type, scope and purpose of data collection, processing and usage

2.1 Data

ALPHARY collects, processes and uses the following personal data according to your actions on our website: your address (title, first and last names, address), your e-mail address, your telephone number, your IP address and furthermore the type and scope of the elements accessed by you as well as the date and time of access.

2.2 Website usage

When you visit our website or use our applications, temporary connection data (IP address, Cookies, last visited URL, time and date, files accessed) is recorded. Without your specific approval, we only save, process and use your personal data as far as this is necessary for your visit to the website or for contractual purposes, such as the execution of competitions. It can also be processed and used in pseudonymised form for the purposes named under point 2.3.

The data entered by you will only be passed on to teaching staff (teachers, language teachers, HR managers, etc.) if you have given your explicit consent or if you have accepted the invitation of a (teaching) person to join a class.

2.3 Use for marketing purposes and for website optimisation

On the ALPHARY website, data is collected, processed and used with technologies of the provider for marketing and optimisation purposes. For this, Cookies (i.e. small text files that are saved on your computer) can be used to enable the recognition of your internet browser. Usage profiles are created from these files under a pseudonym. If you have not given separate agreement to this, these files are not used to identify you personally and are not combined with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. IP addresses are only processed and used in this procedure in anonymised form. You can disagree to data collection and saving at any time with immediate effect by setting an “opt-out Cookie” (see point 3.).

Apart from this, ALPHARY uses your inventory data and/or usage data only for advertising, advisory and market research purposes and for needs-based design of the website if you have given your separate consent to this in advance. If ALPHARY requests consent, you are made aware of this separately through a corresponding consent text and box to click on and/or an asterisk mark. You can remove your consent regarding this with ALPHARY at any time in writing or electronically. If you have not given your consent or if you withdraw it, data usage in accordance with this paragraph does not take place. The services from ALPHARY are of course carried out independently of whether you give your consent or remove it.

2.4 Other data usage

The saving, processing and usage of your data beyond this do not take place. Also, in particular, no personal usage profile is created with use of your name or other identification characteristics.

2.5 Social Share Buttons

We use the so-called “two-click solution”, which means that when you visit our website generally no personal information will be shared. Only if you click on one of the social share buttons will information be transmitted to the respective provider.

These enable you to share an article from our website on your social media profile.

By activating the social share button, the respective provider will receive information that your browser has accessed a specific page on our website. This occurs even if you do not have an account with the provider or are currently not logged in to this account. This information will be directly transmitted by your browser to the provider’s server, e.g. in the U.S. and saved there.

If you are logged in to an account with this provider, the provider can directly assign the visit to our website to your account. If you interact with the share dialog window (e.g. leaving a comment), the corresponding information will also be directly transmitted to the provider’s server and saved there. This information will be published on the provider’s page and displayed to your contacts. If you do not want the provider to assign the data collected during your visit to our website to your user account, you must log out of this account before the first use of the plug-in.

The social network provider can use this information for advertising, market research and the appropriate use of their website. To this end, the provider creates use-, interests- and relationship profiles to: (1) to analyze your use of our website in relation to advertisements the provider wishes to display on your profile; (2) to inform other users about your activity on our website, and; (3) to offer additional related services from the provider.
