Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Legal basis for the processing of personal data is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR providing that processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.


What data do we collect?

Each time you access our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.
The following data is collected:

  • Information about the browser type and the version used
  • The user’s operating system

We further collect the following data that general users provide us with voluntarily if they fill in the contact form on our website:

  • Personal identification information (Name, Email address)


Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.

The data is stored in log files in order to ensure the functionality of the website. The data is also used to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

We use your basic personal data in order to reply to any of your requests. We will not collect any personal data from you that we do not need. For the contact form the data we collect is required to verify your identity and respond to your request.


Website Cookies

We use so-called session cookies to ensure the proper functioning of the website. Session cookies are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. We do not set site preference cookies, third-party cookies or track personal details.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

How we store data in JCI Europe

How long do we keep your data?

JCI Europe does not keep your personal data longer than necessary for the processing of your request. Your personal data will be erased as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies and after a time period of maximum two years.

In the case of the collection of data to provide the website, the data will be erased when the respective session is terminated. With regard to data stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. A storage going beyond this is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the user is no longer possible.
