NATURE AND EXTENT OF THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA

CONTACT FORM

If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the contact form will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.

The processing of the data entered into the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message by email to us is sufficient. The lawfulness of processing personal data carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The information you provide in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, until you revoke your consent for storing your data or until the purpose for data storage is no longer given (e.g.: after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - especially retention periods - remain unaffected.

REGISTRATION AT CHECKSTONE

With your registration at our website we collect personal data. Furthermore, we store to a certain extent data that is necessary when using our website. This happens only in anonymized or pseudonymized form. In addition, after completing a job (test order), the information you provide will be electronically stored on our servers to make the data available only to the company that advertised the job. This data is not processed and used by us otherwise.

WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT

Personal data is collected and processed when registering on our website. In order to be able to provide you with test assignments, we ask you to share the following data with us:

  • Title, name and family name
  • Language
  • Address including the country you live is
  • Your operation radius, in which you are willing to take test assignments
  • Telephone number
  • Email address
  • Date of birth
  • Geolocation

After your registration you will receive a username and an electronic generated password, which you will replace with a password of your choice at your first login (this password is never visible in plain text).

The data specified above is your inventory data. We need the data from our users in order to manage the tester accounts and to contact our users if necessary. Due to the special technical possibilities offered by the web services and the increased potential of abuse, a clear identification of our user is inevitable.

We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as they are necessary for the establishment, content or modification of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or precontractual measures. We collect, process and use personal data based on the usage from our website (usage data) only if necessary in order to enable or charge our users for the use of the service.

The collected customer data will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.

TRANSMITTING DATA TO THIRD PARTIES

We only share personally identifiable information with third parties,

  • If the third party has advertised jobs and you have explicitly applied for this specific job,
  • if and to the extent necessary for the execution of the contractual relationship with you or for the enforcement of our claims and rights,
  • if there are requests from public authorities, in particular law enforcement and supervisory authorities, and the disclosure is required to avert threats to public safety and order and the prosecution of criminal offenses, and / or
  • if we are otherwise legally required to do so

INFORMATION, CORRECTION, CANCELLATION, BLOCKING

On written request, we will inform you at any time about which personal data about you is stored with us. You still have the opportunity at any time to have the data of your tester account and thus your personal data blocked or deleted by us. Data, which we need for the completion of outstanding tasks or for the enforcement of our rights and claims, as well as data, which we must keep after legal measure, is excluded.

If you delete your tester profile, your information will be available during a job (test order), but will be anonymised.

GOOGLE ADWORDS AND GOOGLE CONVERSION TRACKING

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google").

As part of Google AdWords, we use the so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser stores on the user's computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for the personal identification of the users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not expired yet, Google and we can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of advertisers. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie through its Internet browser under User Preferences. You will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

The storage of "conversion cookies" is based on Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.

This analysis begins automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. reCAPTCHA analyses various information (for example, the IP address, the website visitor's visit time on the website, or user mouse movements).

The reCAPTCHA analyses are completely in the background. Site visitors are not advised that an analysis is taking place.
