As part of our commitment to your privacy, we have appointed an internal data protection officer (“DPO”).

THE TYPE OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT

Personal Data: 1440 Multiversity collects information about you when you sign up for email, make a reservation, apply for employment, participate in a survey, or fill out any other form on the Website that asks for your information.

This information, together with information about how you use our Website is considered personal data under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Your personal data will be deleted or the processing will be restricted as soon as the data has met the purpose for which it was stored. Storage of the data beyond this may be possible if this is stipulated by EU or national directives, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. The data will be deleted or its processing will be restricted when a prescribed deadline expires, unless it is necessary to continue storing the data to conclude or perform a contract.

Sensitive Data: Unless required by law, we will never ask you for any of the following types of sensitive data: your race or ethnicity; your political ideology; your religious or philosophical beliefs; any trade union memberships; genetic or biometric data; health information; information about your sex life or your sexual orientation.

This information helps us evaluate how our visitors navigate our Website on an aggregate basis, including the number and frequency of visitors to each web page and the length of their visits.

If you choose to make a reservation or create an account on our Website, you will be asked for a password. This access information is fully anonymized and stored on our limited-access servers. We will maintain safeguards to protect the security of these servers and any of your personally identifiable information. Additionally, our system uses certain security plugins which protect our Website from attack and misuse. Normal, non-damaging website accesses are usually not logged by the plugins. However, as soon as there is the suspicion that our system is subject to an attack, data relating to the visitor’s computer system are automatically logged for forensic purposes and stored in firewall logs. The data stored includes the IP address, the data and time, the browser user agent and the reason for the suspicious activity.

Website usage data is deleted when it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was captured.

GOOGLE ANALYTICS

This website is using Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). The use includes the “Universal Analytics” operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze a user’s activities across devices.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users interact with the site. The information generated by the cookie relating to your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On this website Google Analytics has been extended to include IP anonymization in order to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. For more information on terms of use and data protection, please visit https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or https://policies.google.com/?hl=en.

On behalf of our Website operator, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide our Website operator with other services related to website and Internet use.
