1. Data collection on our website
How we collect your data
Your data is collected on the one hand when you provide it to us. This may, for example, be data that you enter in a contact form.
Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g., internet browser, operating system, or time of page view). This data is collected automatically as soon as you access our website.
What we use your data for
A part of the data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour.
As a user, you have the right to request information free of charge about what personal data has been stored about you.
You also have the right to have inaccurate data corrected and to have processing of your personal data restricted or deleted. If applicable, you can also exercise your right to data portability. If you believe that your data has been processed unlawfully, you may lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority.
Deletion of data: Unless your request conflicts with a legal obligation to retain data (e.g., data retention), you have the right to have your data deleted. Data stored by us will be deleted if it is no longer required for its intended purpose and there are no legal retention periods. If deletion cannot be carried out because the data is required for permissible legal purposes, data processing will be restricted. In this case, the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes
Right to object: Users of this website can exercise their right to object to the processing of their personal data at any time.
If you wish to have your personal data corrected, blocked, deleted or accessed, or if you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, or if you wish to withdraw your consent, please contact us at the following e-mail address: [email protected] or click here:

2. General notes/mandatory information
SSL / TLS encryption
In order to protect your transmitted data as best as possible, the website operators use SSL encryption. You can recognise such encrypted connections by the prefix https:// in the page link in the address line of your browser. Unencrypted pages are marked by http://. All data that you transmit to this website – for example when making enquiries or logging in – cannot be read by third parties thanks to SSL encryption.
On the ikp website you will always find open positions in the “Jobs” section. For data protection reasons, we do not offer the possibility of an online application directly via our website. We collect personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us when contacting us (e.g., by e-mail to [email protected]).
We use the data you provide exclusively to process your enquiry. Applicant data is protected within the framework of legal requirements and, if you do not agree to be kept on record, deleted again in good time.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the internet (e.g., communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible here.
Personal sensitive data
ikp does not specifically collect special types of personal data through this website. Special types of personal data include data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs or trade union membership, and data concerning physical or mental health or sex life. In some countries, criminal records, national insurance numbers or financial data also count as personal data of a special nature.
ikp ensures the confidentiality and security of this information to the extent that it should be used in the course of business. Access to this data is restricted and we use technical and organisational security measures to protect the data against loss, misuse and improper disclosure.
Hosting & server log files
If you do not register or log in as a visitor, we collect data on access to the website on the basis of our legitimate interest (see Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR) and store these as “server log files” on the website server.
The following data is logged in this way:
IP address, date and time of the request, time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time, content of the request, HTTP status code, amount of data transferred, website from which the request came and information on the browser and operating system.
This is necessary to display our website and to ensure stability and security. This corresponds to our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 cl. 1 lit. f GDPR.
The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g., to be able to clarify cases of abuse. If data must be retained for evidentiary reasons, it is exempt from deletion until the incident has been finally clarified.
We use the following hoster for the provision of our website:
World4You Internet Services GmbH, Hafenstraße 35, 4020 Linz – Austria.
This company is the recipient of your personal data and acts as a processor for us. This corresponds to our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 cl. 1 lit. f GDPR in not having to maintain a server on our premises ourselves. The server is located in Austria.
We have concluded a contract on order processing (AVV) with the above-mentioned provider. This is a contract required by data protection law, which ensures that this provider only processes the personal data of our website according to our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.
However, you may wish to register in order to regularly receive current information from ikp. We will then inform registered users about our services, publications and products or contact you for other marketing purposes. We do not pass on personal data to third parties for the purposes of advertising, market research or opinion polling, nor do we make automated individual decisions or use profiling.

We use the web analysis tool “Matomo” to design our websites in line with demand. The provider is Innocraft Limited, 6/150 Willis Street, Te Aro, Wellington 6011, New Zealand.
Matomo uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is transmitted to a server within the EU and stored there.

The data collection serves to analyse user behaviour on the website in order to improve user-friendliness and to analyse the effectiveness of advertising measures.

Social media platforms
We operate presences on social media platforms in order to communicate with you there and to inform you about our activities.
Our website uses so-called social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition “Social Plug-in from Facebook” or “Facebook Social Plugin”.
You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance here:

If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, after starting a video, YouTube may store various cookies on your end device or use comparable recognition technologies (e.g. device fingerprinting). In this way, YouTube can obtain information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud attempts.
If necessary, further data processing processes may be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no control.
YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
Insofar as a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.
