We, Automotive Artificial Intelligence (AAI) GmbH, want you to be familiar with how we collect, use and disclose personal information (i.e. information that identifies you as an individual) on our website. This Policy tells you what your rights are according to the personal data you provide us.

Automotive Artificial Intelligence (AAI) GmbH is the responsible party

What are personal data?

Personal data is any information, which refers to an identified or identifiable natural person. This is therefore all data, which identify you as an individual or make identifiable. For example, name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address.

How do we use personal data and what are our legal justifications?
To make our products and services available to you

We use your personal data to provide you with the information, products and services that you request and to communicate with you regarding those services and respond to your questions and comments. As well we need personal data for our application process. We refer on our contractual arrangements with you on which we collect and process your personal data when you contact us. Alternatively, in some cases, we refer on our legitimate interests as a business (for example, to assess application). Where we refer on our legitimate interests, we will always make sure that we balance these interests against your rights.


For administrative and internal business purposes

We may use your personal data for our internal business purposes, such as improving our services and products. We may also use your data to monitor the use of our website and ensure that our website is presented in the most effective and relevant manner for you and your device.


The use of the entered personal data based on the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR):

  • If necessary for the processing of personal data, we will obtain your consent pursuant to 6 Para. 1 lit. a.
  • If the processing of your personal data serves to fulfil a contract, in which you participate as a contractual party, 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR is the legal basis. This shall also apply to processing activities, which are necessary for the execution of pre-contractual measures.
  • If we process your personal data in order to fulfil a legal obligation, this is based on 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR.

Here you can read the entire text of the GDPR law.

Who do we share your personal data with?

We will never sell any of your personal data to a third party. In order for us to provide our services to you, we share your personal data with our trusted third-party service providers or our company partners. Whenever we share your personal data, we put safeguards in place which require these organisations to keep your data safe and to ensure that they do not use your personal data for their own purposes.

Group companies

We may share the personal data we collect with other organisations in the AAI GmbH (we also have an office located in Islamabad, Pakistan). We will do this in order to fulfil our contractual obligations to you, or because it is in our legitimate interests to do so.


Transfer of your personal data outside the EEA

We may need to transfer your personal data outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) for example to our Office in Islamabad, Pakistan, and we will share some information with third-party services (e.g. Lever (USA)) in the following circumstances:

  • Where you have requested a service, which is fulfilled by one of our group companies which sit outside of the EEA or
  • Where we work with a supplier which processes some of its personal data outside of the EEA.

These countries may not have the same data protection laws as the UK and the EEA and so your personal data may not be subject to the same protections. However, in such cases, we will make sure that any transfer of your personal data to countries outside the EEA is subject to appropriate safeguards as if it were being processed inside the EEA and under the guiding principles set out in this privacy policy.

Security

In order to guarantee the protection of the personal data controlled by us, we take all organizational, technical and administration-related measures to a reasonable extent. Unfortunately, no 100% security can be guaranteed for data transmissions via the internet or for data storage systems. Please do not send us any confidential information by e-mail. If you have cause to assume that your interaction with us is no longer secured, you must inform us without delay by contacting us using the contact information on the website (please note that if you contact us by normal post the processing of your problem by us may be delayed).

How we are using cookies on our website?

AAI doesn’t need to collect visitors’ names and data, because we are not interested in profiling our visitors.
We use only technical cookies for webmaster page editing (session cookies) and we link sites, that may use cookies, but those are not under our control and responsibility. This site also includes third party technical functions in order to improve the service, i.e. Youtube. More technical details about their behaviour are in the following description.


What are cookies?

Cookies are little text files which are stored on the browser or hard drive of your computer or mobile device when you visit a webpage or application. Cookies work to make your experience browsing our site as smooth as possible.
Cookies can be stored for varying lengths of time on your browser or device. There are two main types of Cookies:

  • Session cookies (transient cookies) are erased when you close the web browser. The session cookie is stored in temporary memory and is not retained after the browser is closed. Session cookies do not collect information from your computer. They typically will store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user.
  • Persistent cookies (permanent cookies) are stored on your hard drive until it expires or until you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies are used to collect identifying information about the user (e.g. web surving behaviour or preferences). Those are not used on our Website.


Why we are using cookies?

We use cookies to enhance your browsing experience by:

  • giving you a browsing experience that is unique to you and to serve you content which improves your site experience.


Youtube cookies

Our Youtube videos have privacy-enhanced mode enabled: therefore YouTube won’t store information about our visitors, unless they play the video, according to the Google-Youtube guide: https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/171780?hl=en-GB


Integration of the services of third parties

We use Lever Inc:’s software for application processing (989 Market Street, #500, San Francisco, CA 94103, “Lever”). We ensure the adequacy of data transfer to the USA, a third country, by agreeing standardized EU contractual clauses with Lever. The legal basis for this data collection is Section 26 BDSG 2018.
Your personal application data will only be collected, stored, processed and used for purposes in connection with your interest in current or future employment with us and the actual processing of your application. Your online application will only be processed and handled by the relevant contact people in our company. All employees entrusted with data processing are obliged to maintain the confidentiality of your data.

How long we will store your data?

In broad terms, we will only retain your personal data for as long as is necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. This means that the retention periods will vary according to the type of the data and the purpose.
In some cases, the law specifies the retention of personal data (e.g. for tax or commercial law). The data will be stored only for the legal purpose and not used otherwise. After expiry of the legal retention period, we delete the data in accordance with the GDPR.
