4. Cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files which your browser generates automatically and are stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone etc.) when you visit our website.

Cookies do not harm your device and do not contain viruses, Trojans or any other malware. They contain information that is specific to your device. However, that does not mean that we can use them to directly obtain information about your identity. Cookies are used to improve your browsing experience on our website. For example, we use what are known as session cookies to identify individual pages on our website that you have visited before. These are automatically deleted when you leave our website. We also use temporary cookies to optimise the user friendliness of our website. These are stored on your device for a set period of time. When you visit our website again to use our services, your browser automatically recognises that you have visited it before and what information and settings you entered, so that you don’t have to enter them again.

In addition, we use cookies to compile statistics on the use of our website and to optimise our offer for you (see clause 5). If you return to our website, these cookies enable us to automatically recognise that you have visited us before. These cookies are automatically deleted after a set period of time. The data processed by cookies are necessary for the purposes of protecting our legitimate interests and those of third parties pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser not to store cookies on your computer or to always display a warning before a new cookie is placed on it.

5. Rights of the data subject

You have the right:

  • to request the information about your personal data processed by us (Article 15 of the GDPR). In particular, you can request information on the purposes of the processing, the category of the personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your personal data have been or will be disclosed, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, the existence of the right to request rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing of personal data or to object to such processing, the right to lodge a complaint, the source of the data if they are not collected from us, and the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling and, if applicable, meaningful information about the details;
  • to obtain, without undue delay, the rectification or completion of personal data concerning you that are stored by us if these data are inaccurate or incomplete (Article 16);
  • to obtain the erasure of personal data concerning you that are stored by us, provided the processing is not required for the purposes of exercising the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (Article 17);
  • to request restriction of processing of your personal data where the accuracy of the personal data is contested by you, the processing is unlawful but you oppose the erasure of your personal data and we no longer need the data but you need them for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or you have objected to processing pursuant to Article 21 of the GDPR (Article 18);
  • to receive your personal data, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transmit those data to another controller (Article 20);
  • to withdraw your consent at any time (Article 7(3)). This will prevent us from continuing to process the data based on this consent in the future;
  • to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority (Article 77). As a rule, this will be the supervisory authority of your habitual residence or place of work or of our registered office.

 

6. Right to object

If your personal data are processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, Article 21 gives you the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you, or if the objection relates to direct marketing. In the latter case, you have a general right to object, which we will comply with without the need for you to specify grounds relating to a particular situation.

To exercise your right to object or to withdraw your consent, simply e-mail privacy@maturity.com.

 

7. Data security

We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol to secure your connection to our website in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. This will usually be 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we will use 128-bit v3 technology. You can tell whether individual pages on our website are encrypted by the key or locked padlock symbol shown in the address bar or status bar in your browser.

We also use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. We constantly improve our security measures in line with technological developments.
