Date and time of access
Name and URL of the retrieved file
Amount of data transferred
Message as to whether the retrieval was successful
Identification data of the browser and operating system used

This data is processed for the purpose of enabling the use of the website (establishing a connection), system security, technical administration of the network infrastructure and optimization of the website. The IP address is only evaluated in the event of attacks on our network infrastructure or the network infrastructure of our Internet provider.
4.2 When you register on matched.io
When you create a profile as a candidate on matched.io, we use data that may be personal to provide our service. Personal data is information that allows us to identify or contact you. For example, first and last name and E-mail address. Personal information is data that contains information about you in a broader sense but does not necessarily draw conclusions about you as a person. These include, for example, uploaded documents such as credentials, links to other websites, educational qualifications or your CV. Furthermore, we use information about professional experience, salary expectations, desired position, type of contract, language skills and, if necessary, chat messages.
This data is used to mediate to employers registered on our platform. The data you provide will be stored, processed and transmitted to the employer by matched.io. The transmission is always encrypted via TLS (Transport Layer Security), also known as SSL. The encryption strength is 256-bit (AES encryption).
If you register as an employer at matched.io and create a company profile, we use the following data, which may also be personal: company name and E-mail address. When you create a user account, you can choose a username and password that you can use to sign in and access your account. In your user account, you can enter additional personal information. This includes company logo, photos, description, and values. These data are stored and published on your company profile on matched.io.
In order for us to provide paid services, we ask additional data. This applies to the details of payment.
5. What do we use your data for and where is it stored?
We use your data primarily to provide our service, to simplify and improve the use of matched.io, and to handle accounts and respond to inquiries. The data you enter will be stored by us, processed and used to mediate to matched.io registered employers. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR. The transmission is always encrypted via TLS (Transport Layer Security), also known as SSL.
Google (Cloud Services):
The data is stored on servers in the European Union. We have carefully selected this service and entered into a data processing clause with Google.
Data you enter as a company is saved and published on your company profile on matched.io.
When you sign up for our newsletter, your email address will be revocably used for our advertising purposes.
6. How can you increase data security yourself?
When you create a profile on matched.io, we recommend that you choose the most secure password possible for your user account. The password must be at least 8 characters long and consist of a combination of letters and numbers. In addition, it should not have similarities to your email and your first and last name. Do not pass on this password and do not write it down - not even electronically. Your password should also be changed regularly. Please note that data transmission over the Internet (e.g., when communicating via email ) may have security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
7. Your rights

9. Data transfer to other countries
In order to convey candidates to potential employers, we use the support of service providers from third countries. matched.io transmits the data required for data processing and use to third countries. In third countries, data protection requirements are lower than in the Member States of the European Union.

For the purpose of the mediation, all data mentioned in this declaration are transmitted, which may also be personal.

We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that the regulations of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are observed by us as well as by external service providers who work for us.

It is also ensured that you need to enter a password to manage your account. Please do not pass on this password to others and do not share it publicly. We would like to point out that no method of electronic data transfer or electronic data storage is 100% secure; therefore, we and other providers can not guarantee the absolute security of your data, although we take appropriate measures.
