Data processing

Generally, we do not identify visitors to our website. When you visit our website, we collect the following information that the browser transmits to our server, which is then temporarily stored:

  • the IP address of your computer
  • date and time of access
  • name and address of the requested file
  • transferred data volume
  • report whether the retrieval was successful
  • identification data of the browser and operating system used
  • the name of your internet service provider

This data is processed in order to technically facilitate the use of the website. We use browsing data of our users for creating aggregated statistics (so that statistics do not show data about a single user but only about the collected data of a number of users), to learn what is of interest to users in order to improve our websites and offering. We also use the browsing data for maintaining or restoring the security of our offer or to detect and correct technical defects and errors.[1]

2. Processing of personal data
Personal data will only be processed by us if you provide us with it voluntarily, e. g. via our contact form or by e-mail. If you provide us with personal data, it will be used for the purpose of handling your enquiry or to provide you with access to the services you have requested (such as evaluating your application for a position at ECM).[2] The transferred personal data will not be connected with browsing data collected during your visit (see section 1.).

3. Cookies
We use so-called cookies to enable and facilitate the use of our website. Cookies are small text files that enable our website to store information on your computer and retrieve it later (e. g. when you visit our website again). The use of cookies, for example, makes it possible to “remember” the language you chose to present our contents to you. [3]

Our cookies do not allow us to identify you personally, but only to identify your computer temporarily. You can deactivate or block the storage of cookies in your browser generally or only for our site. You can find out how to do this in the help function of your browser. However, deactivating or blocking cookies may lead to restrictions regarding the usability of our website.

4. Data processing by third parties
Google Analytics

For the demand-oriented design of our website we create pseudonymous user profiles with the help of Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a product of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. If you access this website from the EU/EEA, your IP address will be shortened by Google before it is transferred to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google is certified according to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. On behalf of ECM, Google will use this information to generate reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. These purposes pursued by us are also legitimate interests. [1]

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link:
