3. Your rights regarding your data
3.1. You have the following rights in relation to the processing of your data:
(a) A right of access to your data (Art. 15 GDPR). This includes, first of all, information about whether we process your personal data. If this is the case, you have the right to be informed about the data processed and additionally about:
- the purposes of the processing;
- the categories of data processed;
- the recipients of the data;
- the applicable data protection safeguards if the data is transferred to recipients outside the European Union;
- the storage period;
- your legal rights regarding data protection;
- the origin of the data and the existence of automated decision-making.
You also have the right to be provided with a copy of your personal data, provided that this does not affect the rights of third parties..
(b) A right to rectification if your data is inaccurate or to completion if your data is incomplete (Art. 16 GDPR), if this is necessary to achieve the purpose of the processing.
(c) A right to erasure (1) if processing of your data is no longer necessary for the aforementioned purposes, (2) if the processing is based on consent that you have revoked in the meantime and there is no other legal basis for processing by us, (3) if you have objected to processing carried out by us and – in the case of objection on personal grounds – there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, (4) if we have processed your data unlawfully, or (5) if there is a legal obligation to erase it (so-called “right to be forgotten”, or “right to be informed”). “Right to be forgotten”, Art. 17 GDPR)
(d) A right to restriction of processing (1) if you dispute the accuracy of your data for the period we need to verify the accuracy, (2) if the processing of your data was unlawful and you wish to have the processing restricted instead of erased, (3) if storage by us is no longer necessary for the aforementioned purposes, (4) if you have objected to processing carried out by us which is based on our legitimate interests, as long as it has not yet been determined whether our legitimate interests outweigh your rights (Art. 18 GDPR).
(e) A right to data portability with regard to your data that you have provided to us, if the processing is based on your consent or a contract with us, i.e. you can request the data you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format to be transferred to you or to a third party (Art. 20 GDPR)
(f) A right to object to processing, please also see the detailed information under point “Rights of objection according to Art. 21 GDPR”.
These rights are partly restricted by law. If we are unable to fulfil these rights, we will notify you.
We reserve the right not to process requests that are unreasonably frequent or that are received without appropriate proof of identity. We will inform you of this in writing.
If you are of the opinion that the data processing does not comply with data protection regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation and the Federal Data Protection Act, you can lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority. In particular, you can contact the supervisory authority at your place of residence, at your place of work or at the place of the suspected data protection violation. This does not exclude any further legal remedies, e.g. before the courts.
3.2. Your rights to object according to Art. 21 GDPR
- Right to object to direct advertising
You can object to further use of your data for advertising purposes, even if the use of the data is legally permissible without your consent.
- Right to object on personal grounds
You have the right to object to the processing of your data by us on grounds relating to your particular situation, insofar as this is based on our legitimate interests. We will then stop processing your data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for further processing that override your rights, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
In order to assert your objection, it is sufficient to send us an informal message (contact details: email@example.com see under point: “Controller, data protection officer, assertion of your rights”). Please note that with regard to data processing in joint responsibility, we are generally not able to identify you by name or e-mail address. To exercise your right to object, you should therefore contact the publishers of the digital offers you visit or ideally change your settings directly in the CMP of the digital offers you visit.
An objection does not trigger any costs for you and has no negative consequences for you. The lawfulness of the processing of your data prior to your objection remains unaffected in this case.
3.3. To exercise your above rights, please click on this link: https://stroeer-requests.my.onetrust.com/webform/5223f5cf-ed85-4b3d-a37c-2f49312cbd78/a10bc38c-e5af-46ed-bfbc-4fa27ba0cd89
4. Place of data processing
We will not store your data for longer than is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected, unless there is a legal basis for further processing. In the case of such archiving, the data will be blocked from other access and deleted and destroyed in accordance with data protection law after the statutory retention periods have expired. The respective retention periods depend on the underlying purpose and the type of personal data.
As the data controller, we process your data ourselves exclusively within the European Union (“EU”). However, your data will be processed both within and outside the EU and the European Economic Area (hereinafter “EEA”) by the recipients described in section 5 and in point 6.7. Please note: If your data is transferred from your home country to another country, the laws protecting your data there may differ from those in your country (and may only provide a lower level of protection). If we transfer your data to a country outside the EEA, we will take appropriate measures to ensure an adequate level of data protection, for example by concluding so-called standard contractual clauses (Art. 46 of the GDPR) or by obtaining your explicit consent (Art. 49 (1) sentence 1 lit. a of the GDPR).
You have the right to receive a copy of the specifically agreed regulations to ensure the appropriate level of data protection. Please use the information in the section “Controller, data protection officer, assertion of your rights”.
5. Special information on processing by Seeding Alliance – visitors of digital offers provided by SAG as a service provide
5.1. Business model of Seeding-Alliance GmbH
Through the use of our online advertising technology, we enable the display of advertising (e.g. in the form of native advertising) on the basis of data that is collected/processed when you visit the digital offerings of publishers. For this purpose, cookies and similar technologies are set by other companies (so-called vendors) in the digital offerings of the publishers – exclusively with your consent. These allow the vendors to collect and transmit your data (pseudonymous cookie ID, IP address) to other vendors within an anonymous environment (so-called cookie matching process). The purpose of this cookie matching process is to combine information from different digital offers in order to enable the most accurate possible display of advertising on this basis. Under no circumstances will data such as name, address or e-mail address be stored in the cookies.
You can find more information on this and on the vendors in the data protection notices of the digital offers you visit and in the consent management platforms used there (hereinafter “CMPs”).
In order to provide the highest level of transparency for you as a user, the publishers use vendors who participate in the Transparency & Consent Framework (hereinafter “TCF”) of IAB Europe and have submitted to its specifications and guidelines for data processing under joint responsibility via their CMPs. Via the CMPs of the digital offers of the publishers, you have the possibility to give informed consent to the processing of your data individually or collectively for case groups defined by the TCF and to revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. You can also object to the processing of your data if it is based on legitimate interests.
An overview of your setting options and information, the purposes and involved vendors within the scope of data processing in joint responsibility can be found at any time in the CMPs of the digital offers you visit.
You can also find out more about the TCF on the IAB Europe website: iabeurope.eu.
5.2. Auction of advertising space by SAG
SAG auctions advertising space from publishers to connected sales platforms. For this purpose, SAG can use the collected user data to pre-filter relevant target groups.
SAG makes certain user data available to the purchasing platforms so that they can make a purchasing decision for the respective advertising space for their advertisers (so-called bid requests). In particular, SAG takes the cookie ID assigned by SAG for this purpose and establishes an assignment to the respective purchasing platforms, which in turn is made available in the bid request in order to identify already known end devices of users (so-called cookie matching process).
Based on the user data provided, the purchasing platforms make a purchasing decision for the advertisers for the respective advertising space and submit a bid for this (so-called bid response). SAG delivers the advertising media of the highest bidder on the respective advertising space.
5.3. Information about Cookies
Cookies are small text files that enable your browser to be recognised and that are sent to your computer or mobile device. Under no circumstances will data such as name, address or e-mail address be stored in the cookies.
Of course, you can also use the digital offers of the publishers without cookies. You can set your browser to generally reject cookies without our involvement or the involvement of the publishers. You can also delete cookies that have already been set in your browser settings.
5.4. Processing of your data
For certain processing operations, we are jointly responsible with the publishers of the digital offers visited by you as well as the vendors used by them and, if applicable, the advertisers who play (have played) advertisements in the digital offers of the publishers (so-called joint responsibility). For the contact details of the publishers, please refer to the imprint of the digital offerings you visit.
You can find the contact details of the respective vendors in the consent management platforms (CMPs) of these digital offerings. Where we are solely responsible for certain processing operations or the processing of certain categories of data, we have indicated this accordingly. However, the majority of the processing operations described in this notice are carried out under joint responsibility.
5.5. Processing operations under joint responsibility; central contact point
The processing operations for which we are jointly responsible with the other controllers include the following:
- Collection of your data on the publishers’ digital offers you visit using cookies and other technologies;
- Transmission of your data (pseudonymous cookie ID, IP address) within an anonymous environment (so-called cookie matching process);
- Auction of advertising space by SAG;
- Display of advertising in the digital offers you visit.
The acquisition of so-called segment data and the formation of target group segments by the various advertisers is not carried out under joint responsibility.
You can find more information on data processing under joint responsibility by the publishers in the data protection notices of the digital services you visit. You can find more detailed information on data processing under joint responsibility by the other vendors in their data protection notices, which you can access from the CMP of the digital offer you are visiting.
In order to exercise your rights as a data subject, you can either contact us (our contact details can be found above), assert them directly against the publishers of the digital offers you visit or contact the vendors named in the respective CMP. The joint controllers have also agreed that the publisher will act as the central point of contact for the exercise of data subjects’ rights against all joint controllers.
5.6. Which of your data do we process and from which sources does this data originate?
In connection with the display of advertising, we process the following data in joint responsibility, which relate to you as a user of digital offers of the publishers:
- HTTP data
When you call up a digital offer, certain information is collected for technical reasons by the browser used on your end device or the respective app via the so-called Hypertext Transfer Protocol (Secure) (HTTP(S)), for example your IP address, type and version of your Internet browser, operating system used, language used, the page called up, the previously visited page (referrer URL), date and time of the call;
- Device-related data
When a digital offer is accessed via a mobile device, the so-called IFA (Identifier for Advertisers) of the mobile device may be read. The IFA is an identification number of a mobile end device which enables the end device to be identified for advertising purposes.
- Location-related information
The approximate location of your end device can be determined from the HTTP data (the postcode district is determined).
- Cookie data
If you use a digital offer, cookies and other technologies (hereinafter collectively “cookies”) may be stored in the browser on your end device for the purpose of targeting advertising. Cookies are tiny text files. The next time you visit the digital offer, the cookies can be read from your browser.
The cookies are used for this purpose exclusively with your consent based on TTDSG Section 25 para. 1 in conjunction with GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 a. Under no circumstances will data such as name, address, e-mail address or IP address be stored in the cookies.
5.7. Self-regulation according to TCF 2.2
Practicable data protection for the benefit of users with regard to usage-based online advertising is important to SAG. Beyond the legal requirements and the strict pseudonymisation of the collected data, we therefore follow the self-regulatory requirements of the IAB Europe Framework.
Information on the IAB Transparency and Consent Framework (TCF 2.2)
SAG is a registered vendor in the Transparency and Consent Framework (also known as TCF 2.2) of the International Advertising Bureau Europe (IAB). Cookies are set on some partner sites for the processing of advertising campaigns.

|i)||Understand audiences through statistics or combinations of data from different sources:|
Reports can be generated based on the combination of data sets (like user profiles, statistics, market research, analytics data) regarding your interactions and those of other users with advertising or (non-advertising) content to identify common characteristics (for instance, to determine which target audiences are more receptive to an ad campaign or to certain contents).
|Consent or legitimate interest|

Your data will only be passed on to other offices:
6.3.1. For legal reasons:
We will disclose your information to other companies, organisations or individuals when necessary to comply with applicable laws or regulations, such as to comply with legal process, or to comply with a binding governmental order, to enforce contractual agreements, including investigation of potential violations, to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or to protect against harm to our property, other rights or safety, the property or safety of our users or the public, as permitted or required by law.

6.3.2. For processing by other bodies (on our behalf):
These are trustworthy companies that we commission with the processing of data within the framework provided by law and that process the data according to our instructions (so-called processors). This is done in accordance with applicable law, as well as appropriate confidentiality and security measures that enable us to ensure the protection of your data at all times. In this case, SAG remains responsible for the protection of your data. We engage companies in the following areas in particular: IT, sales, marketing, finance, consulting, customer service, human resources, logistics, printing. Beyond that, only our employees have access to your data.

6.3.3. Information on the use of Google Analytics on Seeding-Alliance.de
We have added the code “anonymizeIP” to Google Analytics on our website. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened within the EU or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of this website by Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
6.3.4. Use of Youtube
6.4. Data processing log data, cookies, tools and plugins on this website

Date and time of the page request,
URLs called up from our sub-pages,
Referral URL (URL of the page from which you came to our site),
http status code (e.g. successful page request),
Browser language settings,

6.5. Marketing and Newsletter
We process your data in accordance with the statutory provisions for our own marketing purposes.
You can object to the processing of your data for advertising purposes at any time by sending a short written message to firstname.lastname@example.org or revoke your consent without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates.
If you object to the use of your data, your contact address will not be used for advertising purposes. We would like to point out that in exceptional cases, advertising material may still be sent even after receipt of your objection. This is due to technical reasons and does not mean that we will not implement your objection.
The legal basis for this is § 7 para. 3 of Act against unfair competition (german: UWG) as well as Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) EU GDPR. Our interest in addressing advertising in a needs-based manner is to be regarded as justified within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.
- We only pass on your data to business partners for the dispatch of advertising material if the partner is committed to our data protection standards.
On our website you can subscribe to our newsletters. In our newsletters, we provide information about our current products and services, invite you to our events and give you an overview of interesting articles (e.g. blog entries) and relevant topics. We usually need your e-mail address for registration.
The registration for our newsletters is carried out in the so-called double opt-in procedure. After entering your e-mail address on our website (1st step), we will send you a confirmation link in the first e-mail. After calling up this link (2nd step), you will receive our regular newsletter. This procedure serves to confirm that the e-mail address has not been entered into our newsletter distribution list by unauthorised persons. If the confirmation link is not called up within a certain period of time, the newsletter will not be sent.
If you have subscribed to a newsletter, you will also find a corresponding link at the end of the newsletter. Alternatively, you can unsubscribe using this link. If no legal retention periods are relevant for your personal data (e.g. from a contractual relationship with us), we will remove you from the respective newsletter distribution list immediately after receiving your unsubscription.
The processing of your personal data serves the personalised creation of the newsletter as well as the regular dispatch to the e-mail address you have provided. The legal basis for the processing is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR).
6.6. Your contact to us
We offer a separate form on our website to quickly contact us and to arrange an appointment for a free demo. In doing so, we process the data you provide in the forms, including free text (content of the message). If certain categories of data are not absolutely necessary for processing your enquiry, but are helpful for further personalising our response (e.g. the function in your company) or for contacting you by alternative means (e.g. by telephone), we mark such fields as “voluntary”. The legal basis for data processing is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR). If we need the data you provide for the preparation or fulfilment of a contract with you, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
Of course, you can also contact us by e-mail at any time. If you send us a message to an email address provided on our website, the legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interest in processing your request (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR).
Please note that the e-mails are generally not sent fully encrypted. This means that – despite extensive technical security precautions – there is a risk of unauthorised access to the email content by third parties, e.g. during transmission.
6.7. Further categories of data and recipients
The offer on our website and in our presences in social media is not designed to process special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 GDPR, e.g. information on health, origin or religion. As a rule, we therefore do not process such special categories of data unless they are provided to us on our own initiative, e.g. in a contact form (Art. 9(2)(a) GDPR).
If we involve external service providers who come into contact with the personal data provided to us, they will usually act for us as so-called processors. This means that we conclude a contract with them for commissioned processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR, on the basis of which they are obliged to use the data exclusively in accordance with our specifications. We select our service providers carefully and oblige them to maintain confidentiality. We may use external service providers for web analysis and newsletter distribution, for example.
If personal data is required for the preparation or implementation of a legal dispute or action against legal violations, it may also be processed to the extent necessary for this purpose (e.g. forwarding to lawyers). In this case, the legal basis for data processing is the exercise of our legitimate interest in legal action (Section 24 (1) No. 2 Federal Data Protection Act (german: BDSG), Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR).
In addition, personal data may also be transmitted to competent state authorities (e.g. for the purpose of criminal prosecution) due to legal obligation, enforceable official order or court decision (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR).
6.8. Job applications
In this section, we would like to inform you about the extent to which we process your personal data when you contact us via our career portal and submit an application form.
We collect and process the following personal data from you during the application process:
- Applicant master data (first name, last name, title, e-mail address, telephone number, residence, gender, nationality),
- qualification data (covering letter, letter of motivation, curriculum vitae, previous activities, professional qualifications and skills),
- voluntary information, such as an application photo, details of severely disabled status or other information that you voluntarily provide or upload in your application,
- additional questions depending on the job advertisement in question (e.g. nationality, salary expectations),
- the communication between you and us as well as comments and evaluations written about you in the course of your application process.
- The specific scope of data processing in the application process depends on the position to be filled.
