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 and to improve our website layout. 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.

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 and setting default options for you.


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.

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 group companies. 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).
