Basic information

The iTSM Group is pleased about your visit on our website and your interest in our company. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and want you to feel comfortable when visiting our website. Guarantying data protection and data security is one of the basic principles of the ITSM Group’s policies. Your personal data only will be processed compliant to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

All employees and cooperating partners are indentured to comply with all statutory provisions concerning data protection.

Please contact our data protection officer in case of date protection related questions, claims and requests. You will find the contact details at the beginning of this statement.

Duration of data use

We will store your data for this long,

  • as required by legal retention periods,
  • as we need them for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims
  • in case of consent: until the expiry of the agreed processing time or before if you revoke your consent and no reasons prevent deletion.

Within the scope of the deletion of your data, iTSM Group ensures that all affected order processors are immediately informed of your declared revocation of consent. The iTSM Group obliges its contract processors to delete the personal data immediately after knowledge of the revocation - unless there are no legal reasons to the contrary.

Processing personal data

The subject of data protection is the protection of personal data. This is all information that can be traced back to an identified or identifiable natural person (so-called data subject). Personal data includes details such as surname, first name, postal address, e-mail addresses and telephone numbers, but also information that necessarily arises during the use of our website, e.g. transmission of your IP address. The use of this website is basically possible without providing personal data. In the following cases, personal data is collected/processed:

Provision of the website

Every web server automatically registers access to web pages. When you visit our website, our web server temporarily registers the following data for the purposes of system security and control in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f) DSGVO, which may allow conclusions to be drawn about your person:

  • Computer address (IP address)
  • Page from which a file was requested
  • Name of the file
  • Date and time of the query
  • Transferred data volume
  • Access status

Without this data it would be technically impossible to deliver and display the contents of the web pages. In this respect the collection of data is absolutely necessary. Furthermore, we use the anonymous information for statistical purposes. They help us to optimize our offer and technology. We reserve the right to subsequently examine the log files if we suspect an illegal use of our offer.

The collected data will be deleted by the system after 7 days.

Contact form

If you contact us using the contact form or via e-mail, we will process your data to answer your requests. That can only be done after your approval as claimed in Article 6 (1)(a) of the GDPR. You may revoke this approval at any time without stating any reasons. The following personal data will be collected within this processing:

  • Salutation (optional)
  • Company (optional)
  • Last name (optional)
  • First name (optional)
  • Phone number (optional)
  • e-mail address

Furthermore, you may approve us according to Article 6 (1)(a) of the GDPR, to store your personal data within our customer relationship system with the purpose to contact you within the context of sales activities. You may revoke this approval as well at any time without stating any reasons.

Furthermore, you have to provide the personal data of the training’s participants with the purpose of transmitting important information related to the training:

  • Salutation
  • Name
  • first name
  • e-mail address

If you are not willing to provide these data, you are not able to book our trainings online. You still have the possibility to book our trainings via phone or by sending an e-mail, though.

We provide you with the opportunity to have an offer for our training courses generated - this can be done anonymously or by using your personal data (name, address, reachability). Your data will only be used to generate the document and will not be available to us afterwards.

If you wish, you can have us contact you regarding the offer; for this purpose, you only need to provide an e-mail address and/or, if you wish, a telephone number. In this case, the data will be processed according to Article 6 (1)(a) of the GDPR (consent) or Article 6 (1)(b) of the GDPR (pre-contractual measures).

Additionally, you may approve us according to Article 6 (1)(a) of the GDPR, to store your personal data within our customer relationship system with the purpose to contact you within the context of sales activities. You may revoke this approval at any time without stating any reasons.

If the seminar includes an exam by external institutes, we may need to transmit your personal data in order to register yourself for the exam.
