This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies,’ which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

These features may collect information about your IP address and which page you are visiting on our Website, and they may set a cookie to make sure the feature functions properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Website. We also maintain presences on social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Any information, communications, or materials you submit to us via a social media platform is done at your own risk without any expectation of privacy. We cannot control the actions of other users of these platforms or the actions of the platforms themselves. Your interactions with those features and platforms are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them.

5.2 Links to third-party websites

Our Websites include links to other websites, whose privacy practices may be different from ours. If you submit Personal Data to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy policies. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policy of any Website you visit.

  1. DATA COLLECTION WHILE USING OUR WEBSITE

In order to provide you with the services you require, we may collect Personal Data about you from our website. This information may include, for example, your name, address, email address, phone number and details that are relevant to the services in which you are interested.

6.1 Contact via the Contact Form, E-mail or ICE Direct Application Form

Our website contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our companies, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes e-mail. If a Data Subject contacts the Data Controller by e-mail, contact form or via the ICE Direct application form, the Personal Data transmitted by the Data Subject are automatically stored. Such Personal Data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a Data Subject to the Data Controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the Data Subject. There is no transfer of this Personal Data to third parties.

6.2 Complaints

If we receive a complaint from a person we make up a file containing the details of the complaint. This normally contains the identity of the complainant and any other individuals involved in the complaint. We will only use the Personal Data we collect to process the complaint and to check on the level of service we provide. We do compile and publish statistics showing information like the number of complaints we receive, but not in a form which identifies anyone. We usually have to disclose the complainant’s identity to whoever the complaint is about. This is inevitable where, for example, the accuracy of a person’s record is in dispute. If a complainant doesn’t want information identifying him or her to be disclosed, we will try to respect that. However, it may not be possible to handle a complaint on an anonymous basis.

6.3 Job Applications

We shall collect and process the Personal Data personal data of applicants for the purpose of the processing of the application procedure. All of the information you provide during the process will only be used for the purpose of progressing your application, or to fulfil legal or regulatory requirements if necessary. We will not share any of the information you provide during the recruitment process with any third parties for marketing purposes or store any of your information outside of the European Economic Area. The information you provide will be held securely by us and/or our data processors whether the information is in electronic or physical format. We will use the contact details you provide to us to contact you to progress your application. We will use the other information you provide to assess your suitability for the role you have applied for.  Your Personal Data will only be stored for the period necessary for the recruitment process unless you express your consent to keep it longer.

If you use our online application system, this will be collected by a data processor on our behalf. Data processors are third parties who provide elements of our recruitment service for us based on a contractual relationship between ICE and them. This means that they cannot do anything with your personal information unless we have instructed them to do it. They will not share your personal information with any organisation apart from us. They will hold it securely and retain it for the period we instruct.

  1. PURPOSE OF USE

We will ordinarily only use your Personal Data to provide you a solicited service, send you information which you have requested or to otherwise respond to you. We also use and disclose general data regarding your information (which does not identify you as an individual) for the purpose of administering and developing our website.

  1. LEGAL BASIS FOR THE PROCESSING

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain Consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of Personal Data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the Data Subject is party, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. If the processing of Personal Data is necessary to pursue the Data Controller’s legitimate business interests of answering an enquiry submitted by the Data Subject or providing information to the Data Subject, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR.

  1. DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION

We do not disclose your Personal Data to third parties unless: (1) you have clearly consented to the data transfer or; (2) we transfer your data to a member of our corporate group to the extent reasonably necessary for the purpose of use set out in this policy or; (3) we are entitled or obliged to transfer data due to any legal provisions and/or official or judicial orders. This may be, in particular, the provision of information for the purposes of criminal prosecution, warding off a danger or the enforcement of intellectual property rights.  Where we do disclose your Personal Data to a third party with your consent, we only do so to third parties who are required to take appropriate security measures to protect your Personal Data in line with our own data protection and security policies. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your Personal Data for their own purposes.  We will not transfer your Personal Data to any third party outside the European Economic Area without a valid mechanism ensuring that your Personal Data will be protected by means equivalent to the GDPR.

  1. STORAGE AND ERASURE OF DATA

  1. SECURITY OF INFORMATION

We will secure and protect your privacy by means of appropriate technical and organizational measures against the loss, destruction, access to, alteration or dissemination of your data by unauthorized persons. All information submitted is stored on servers within the European Union.

  1. YOUR RIGHTS

Under the GDPR and additional applicable German, Swedish and UK data protection regulations and laws, you have rights as the Data Subject, which you can exercise in relation to the information we hold about you.
