Privacy Policy

The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us. In the following, we would like to inform you in detail about which of your personal data we collect, for which purposes they are used, with whom they are shared and which control and information rights you may be entitled to.

Data controller and contact

Responsible for this website and the App is Enote GmbH, Gontardstrasse 11, 10178 Berlin, info@enote.com (hereinafter "enote", "we", "us").

If you have any questions about this privacy policy or about the collection, processing or use of your personal data, please contact us by e-mail under the reference "data protection".


1. Processing of your data when using our website for informational purposes

If you visit our website for information purposes only, without providing personal data via our contact form or in any other way, only the Internet connection data that your browser transmits to our server will be processed. This information contains personal data only to a limited extent. The information processed includes your IP address and other usage data (e.g. date and time of access, name of the page accessed, information on the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider).

This information is processed to enable you to use our website (e.g. by adapting our website to the needs of your device).

The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. b General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as we need the automatically collected data for the effective provision of our website, and Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR, as the storage serves our legitimate interest in ensuring the stability and security of the website.

2. Data processing when using our services

We offer additional tools or services on our website (e.g. contact and newsletter), when using them we ask you for personal data such as name or e-mail address and, if necessary, other personal information. Accordingly required information is always marked as mandatory fields.

Without this information, we may not be able to provide you with the requested service or answer any queries you may have. In the following, we will give you an overview of the related processing procedures and legal basis.

2.1 Contact

If you contact us - e.g. via contact form or e-mail - your personal data will be stored and processed by us. This is normally your name and e-mail address as well as the information you have provided us with. These data are stored and used exclusively for the purpose of answering your request or for contacting you and the associated technical administration and are not passed on to third parties without your consent.

The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. b GDPR, insofar as it is carried out for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures, as well as Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR, since the processing of these requests is in the interest of both parties.

In order to answer support requests, we use the assistance of the service provider Zendesk, Inc. who will process your personal data only on our behalf and on the basis of a data processing agreement.

2.2 Newsletter

We also process the personal data and contact details provided by you as part of the newsletter registration process to inform you directly about our other products and services. The legal basis for this data processing is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. a GDPR.

If you register for our newsletter, which informs you about our latest products and services, the personal data you provide in this context (such as name, address and e-mail address) will be processed by us for the purpose of sending the newsletter.

For the registration we use the so-called “double-opt-in” procedure. After your registration on our website, you will receive an e-mail with a link, which you can use to confirm that you are the owner of the e-mail address and that you want to create a user account on our website. If your confirmation is not received within 12 hours, your registration and the personal data provided by you will be automatically deleted.

You may at any time object to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of direct marketing. We will then refrain from further processing your personal data for such purposes. You can send us your objection as follows: info@enote.com or by unsubscribing via the unsubscribe link at the end of each newsletter.

For the dispatch of newsletters we use the service provider Braze Inc. which processes your data only on our behalf and on the basis of a data processing agreement.

Furthermore, in some cases, when sending out surveys, we use the services of the service provider Surveymonkey Europe UC, which processes your data only on our behalf and on the basis of a data processing agreement.

2.3 Applications

You can apply for open positions at enote on our website. To do so, it is necessary to provide information without which we cannot sufficiently examine your application. We process your relevant data only for the purposes of establishing and subsequently, if necessary, carrying out an employment relationship in accordance with § 26 Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

For the execution we use the services of the provider Personio GmbH, who processes your data only on our behalf and on the basis of a data processing agreement.

3. Online advertising and analysis tools

3.1 Cookies

This website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your end device. These text files can be read by these websites and help to identify you when you visit a website again. Some cookies are used to store preferences and are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing the browser, so-called session cookies. Other cookies serve to better adapt the website to user needs and remain on the end device, so-called permanent or persistent cookies. In the following, we explain which cookies we use and how you can object to the use of cookies.

We use our own session cookies, which enable the customer-friendly use of our website, for example by saving your settings. These cookies are automatically deleted at the end of a browser session. The legal basis for the use of such cookies is the fulfilment of the contract (Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. b. GDPR).

We also work together with other service providers who help us to improve our website or offer additional functions. Such service providers may use their own cookies. You will find more information on this in the following sections.

You can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies, to allow cookies only in individual cases, to limit the acceptance of cookies to certain cases or to exclude them altogether and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

3.2 Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called cookies (see above). The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is transferred to a Google server and stored there. We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. As a result, your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmission to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

We have concluded a data processing agreement with Google. The data transfer is therefore privileged according to Art. 28 GDPR.

The storage of Google Analytics cookies is based on your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. a DSVGO.

This website uses the "demographic features" feature of Google Analytics. This enables us to generate reports that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of website visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising by Google as well as from visitor data from third parties. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time by going to the Ads Settings section of your Google Account.

You can prevent the use of Google Analytics including the "demographic features" function at any time, either by installing the Google Browser Plugin, which sets an opt-out cookie, or by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser software. Either option will only prevent the use of web analytics if you are using the browser on which you installed the plugin and you do not delete the opt-out cookie. Please note that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. You can find further information at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de and https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html.

More information on how Google Analytics handles user data can be found in the Google privacy policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

4. Social media plugins

4.1 On our website we use so-called “social media plugins” from Facebook, Twitter, Xing and LinkedIn. The providers of these services can communicate with you via plugins and collect information about your visit to our website. This processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. a, f GDPR. We are thus pursuing our legitimate interest in increasing your user experience and optimizing our services.

4.2 Facebook

Our website uses social plugins ("plugins") of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are marked with a white "f" on a tile. The list and appearance of the Facebook Social Plugin can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/".

If you activate the Facebook plugin, the content of the plugin is transmitted directly to your browser by Facebook and integrated into the website by it. We have no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: https://www.facebook.com/help/186325668085084.

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding website of the offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his or her Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example, by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to find out his or her IP address and store it. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.

The data processing takes place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. a GDPR).

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the relevant rights and setting options to protect the privacy of users, can be found in the Facebook privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him or her through this offer and link it to his or her membership data stored on Facebook, he or she must log out of Facebook before visiting the website.

Functions of the Twitter service are integrated on our website. These functions are offered by Twitter Inc, Twitter, Inc. 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

The data processing takes place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. a GDPR).

We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the website, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Twitter. For further information, please refer to the Twitter privacy policy at http://twitter.com/privacy.

The data processing takes place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. a GDPR).

To the best of our knowledge, XING does not store any personal data of the user when he/she accesses our website. XING also does not store any IP addresses. In addition, no evaluation of user behavior regarding the use of cookies in connection with the "XING Share Button" takes place.

We use components of the LinkedIn network on our website. LinkedIn is a service provided by LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Each time you access our website that is equipped with such a component, that component causes the browser you are using to download an appropriate representation of the LinkedIn component.

Through this process LinkedIn is informed about which specific web page of our website is currently being visited. If you click the LinkedIn "Recommend-Button" while you are logged in to your LinkedIn account, you can link the contents of our website on your LinkedIn profile. This enables LinkedIn to associate your visit to our website with your LinkedIn account.

The data processing takes place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. a GDPR).

We have no influence on the data LinkedIn collects through this, nor on the scope of this data collected by LinkedIn. We also have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted to LinkedIn.

The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

5.3 YouTube

We have integrated a YouTube video into our online offer, which is stored at http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. The video is embedded in the "extended privacy mode", which means that no data about you as a user is transferred to YouTube if you do not play the video. Only when you play the video will the data mentioned in the next paragraph be transmitted. We have no influence on this data transfer.

By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that you have visited the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data collected during the informative visit to our website is transmitted. This happens regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you don't want the assignment with your profile on YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purpose of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide advertising that meets the needs of the users and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

By integrating the YouTube video into our online presence, a connection to the Google Double-Click network is also automatically established when our website is called up. Cookies are not set in the browser as a result. If, however, DoubleClick cookies are already stored in your browser, they will be transferred with the request. According to the information from YouTube, a data transfer only takes place when you play the video.

You have the following data protection rights, depending on the circumstances of the specific case:

  • Information: You have the right to request information about and access to your personal data and/or copies of such data.

  • Correction, blocking, deletion: You have the right to demand the correction, deletion or restriction of the processing of your personal data, as far as their use is not permitted under data protection law. This is particularly the case if (i) the data is incomplete or incorrect, (ii) it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, (iii) the consent on which the processing was based has been revoked, or (iv) you have successfully exercised your right to object to the processing of the data; in cases where the data is processed by third parties, we will forward your requests for correction, deletion or restriction of processing to these third parties, unless this proves impossible or involves disproportionate effort.
