We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are met by us, as well as, by external service providers working for us.

If we work with other companies in order to provide our services, such as email and server providers, this will only be done after an extensive selection process. In this selection process, each individual service provider is carefully selected for its suitability in terms of technical and organizational data protection skills. This selection procedure will be documented in writing and an agreement on the order processing of data (order processing contract) will only be concluded if the third party complies with the requirements of Art. 28 GDPR.

Your information will be stored on specially protected servers. Access to it is only possible for a few specially authorized persons. If you send us data via web forms, the data is always transmitted via an encrypted connection (128-bit TLS).

Service providers from third countries

In order to be able to provide our services, we use the support of service providers from third party countries (non EU countries). In order to ensure the protection of your personal data in this case, we conclude with each – carefully selected – service provider special order processing contracts.

Use of cookies

a) In addition to the aforementioned data, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive assigned to the browser you use. Through this the stored information flows to Cavalry Ventures or the party that sets the cookie. Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. Cookies are used to analyze the use of www.cavalry.vc in anonymized or pseudonymized form. Also cookies enable personalized advertisements on this website.

This website uses the following types of cookies. The extend and function of which are explained below:

  • Transient cookies (see b)
  • Persistent cookies (see c)

b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include session cookies. Transient cookies store your session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the common session. This will allow your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

Deletion of personal data

Cavalry Ventures processes the personal data only as long as necessary. As soon as the purpose of the data processing is fulfilled, deletion of the data is carried out according to the standards of the deletion concept, unless legal regulations oppose this.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

The processing of personal data requires a legal basis. The GDPR names different legal bases in Art. 6 GDPR.

A legal basis for processing personal data is, for example, Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. This refers to the consent given by the user. The consent is earmarked. Processing personal data is also allowed in order to fulfill a contract acc. Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. However, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR must be interpreted broadly, since the initiation of a contractual relationship regarding data processing is also included. This applies in particular to those cases in which the user uses the contact form of Cavalry Ventures in order to receive a non-binding offer. Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR describes the legal basis of data processing in cases involving a legal obligation to process data. Processing personal data may in exceptional cases be based on Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR. This requires the vital interests of the affected person or other natural person to be protected. This refers to cases which would lead to injury or impairment of life, limb and health. For the initiation of assistance personal data such as the name, contact details and possibly health insurance would be required to be handed over. It is also possible that processing personal data is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The so-called “legitimate interest” is standardized in this basis, which is to be read with reference to the addendum reason 47 of the GDPR. In the legal sense, Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR is a so-called “standard of interception”, which applies unless other legal bases than those described above apply. When the standard of interception is applied, weighting the specific interests – that of the affected person or that of the data processor – takes place.

Contact

Through the website www.cavalry.vc is possible to obtain a non-binding offer. This will require processing different data to answer the request, which will be automatically saved for this purpose. A transfer of the data to third parties does not take place, unless the user has given his consent.

Data processing for applications

Cavalry Ventures offers the opportunity to apply for jobs via an application form and via e-mail. For this purpose, personal data is processed and stored for further processing during the respective application process.

In case of successful application and employment, the personal data is stored in accordance with the legal requirements. In case of unsuccessful application the data will be deleted in accordance with the rules of the local deletion concept. In doing so the provisions of the AGG (German Employment Law), in particular the existing evidence pursuant to § 22 AGG are taken into account.
