The website operator takes your privacy very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory provisions. Since new technologies and the constant further development of this website may result in changes to this data protection declaration, we recommend that you read through the data protection declaration again at regular intervals.
Definitions of the terms used (e.g. "personal data" or "processing") can be found in Art. 4 DSGVO.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
The use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation by third parties for sending unsolicited advertisements and information materials is hereby expressly prohibited. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.

For all questions related to the processing of your personal data and the exercise of your rights under the GDPR, you can consult our data protection officer Jens Bimberg, who can be reached at the email privacy(at)sprylab.com.
We, the website operator or page provider, collect data about accesses to the website sprylab.com and purplemanager.com on the basis of our legitimate interest (see Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) and store them as "server log files" on the website server. The following data is logged in this way:
- Visited website
- Time at the time of access
- Amount of data sent in bytes
- Source/reference from which you reached the page
- Browser used
- Operating system used

The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to be able to clarify cases of misuse. If data must be retained for evidentiary reasons, it is exempt from deletion until the incident is finally resolved.
For purplemenager.com, we also collect personal data that is necessary for the performance of our services. This data is only collected for internal purposes and is not passed on to third parties.

Collection and processing of personal data
The website operator collects, uses and discloses your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of such data.
Personal data is any information that can be used to identify you personally and can be traced back to you - for example, your name, e-mail address and telephone number.
You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, in order to improve our online services, we store (without personal reference) your access data to this website. This access data includes, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. By anonymizing the data, it is not possible to draw conclusions about your person.
Handling contact data
If you contact us as the website operator through the contact options offered, your information will be stored so that we can use it to process and respond to your request. Without your consent, this data will not be disclosed to third parties.
Use of Akismet to avoid spam
This site uses the Akismet plugin from Automattic Inc, 60 29th Street #343, San Francisco, CA 94110-4929, USA. With the help of this plugin, contact requests from real people are distinguished from spam requests. For this purpose, all entries are sent to a server in the USA, where they are analyzed and stored for four days for comparison purposes. If an entry has been classified as spam, the data is stored beyond this time. This information includes the name entered, the email address, the IP address, the comment content, the referrer, information about the browser used as well as the computer system and the time of the entry.
You can completely prevent the transfer of data by not using our contact form and writing instead and directly to email@example.com. That would be a pity, but unfortunately we do not see any other alternatives that work just as effectively. You can object to the use of your data for the future at firstname.lastname@example.org, subject "Deletion of Data stored by Akismet" under specification/description of the stored data.
Dealing with comments and contributions
If you leave a post or comment on this website, your IP address will be stored. This is done due to our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO and serves the security of us as website operator: Because if your comment violates applicable law, we can be prosecuted for it, which is why we have an interest in the identity of the comment or post author.

IP anonymization is used on this website. The IP address of the user is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transmitted unabbreviated to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. This shortening eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. The IP address of the user transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.
As part of the agreement on the order data agreement, which we as website operators have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with internet use.
The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online offering by individual users, for example, to create reports on website activity in order to improve our online offering.

Notes for applicants
We process personal data about you for the purpose of your application for employment, insofar as this is necessary for the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship with us. The legal basis for this is Section 26 (1) in conjunction with (8) sentence 2 BDSG. Furthermore, we may process personal data about you insofar as this is necessary for the defense of asserted legal claims against us arising from the application process. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Para. 1, Letter f DSGVO; the legitimate interest is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). Insofar as an employment relationship arises between you and us, we may, in accordance with Section 26 (1) of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), further process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship if this is necessary for the implementation or termination of the employment relationship or for the exercise or fulfillment of the rights and obligations of the employees' interest representation resulting from a law or a collective bargaining agreement, a company or service agreement (collective agreement).
We process data related to your application. This may be general personal data (such as name, address and contact details), information on your professional qualifications and school education or information on further professional training or other information that you provide to us in connection with your application. In addition, we may process job-related information that you have made publicly available, such as a profile on professional social media networks.
We store your personal data for as long as is necessary to make a decision about your application. Insofar as an employment relationship between you and us does not come about, we may continue to store data beyond this, insofar as this is necessary for the defense against possible legal claims. In this case, the application documents will be deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, unless longer storage is required due to legal disputes.
The provision of personal data is neither legally nor contractually required, nor are you obliged to provide the personal data. However, the provision of personal data is required for the conclusion of a contract for employment with us. This means that if you do not provide us with personal data when applying for a job, we will not enter into an employment relationship with you.
