Information We Collect

  • Data Retention

We keep most of your personal data for as long as your account is open.

We retain the personal data you provide while your account is in existence or as needed to provide you Services. Even if you only use our Services when looking for a new job every few years, we will retain your information and keep your profile open until you decide to close your account. In some cases we choose to retain certain information in a depersonalized or aggregated form.

  • Rights to Access and Control Your Personal Data

You can access or delete your personal data. You have many choices about how your data is collected, used and shared.

We provide many choices about the collection, use and sharing of your data, from deleting or correcting data you include in your profile and controlling the visibility of your posts to advertising opt-outs and communication controls. We offer access to the personal data we have about you (for SlideShare, please contact us).

  • Account Closure

We keep some of your data even after you close your account.

If you choose to close your Cross Strategies GmbH/TradersYard (or SlideShare) account, your personal data will generally stop being visible to others on our Services within 24 hours. We generally delete closed account information within 30 days of account closure, except as noted below.

We retain your personal data even after you have closed your account if reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations (including law enforcement requests), meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, maintain security, prevent fraud and abuse, enforce our User Agreement, or fulfill your request to “unsubscribe” from further messages from us. We will retain de-personalized information after your account has been closed.

Information you have shared with others (e.g., through InMail, updates or group posts) will remain visible after you closed your account or deleted the information from your own profile or mailbox, and we do not control data that other Members copied out of our Services. Groups content associated with closed accounts will show an unknown user as the source. Your profile may continue to be displayed in the services of others (e.g., search engine results) until they refresh their cache.

This data privacy statement explains the manner, coverage and reason of data collection and the usage of personal data by the responsible provider Cross Strategies GmbH (address: Schottenring 16, 1010 Vienna; email: [email protected]).

  • Login data / Server log files

The provider (i.e. the webspace provider) collects data each time the content is accessed (so-called server log files). The access data include the following:

Name of the website accessed, file, date and time of the access, data volume, announcement of successful access, browser type and version, user operating system, reference URL (website last visited by the user), IP address and the requested provider.

The provider only uses the protocol data for statistic analysis for the purpose of product improvement, including its working condition, security and optimization. The provider reserves the right to examine the protocol data at any later time if there is suspicion of illegal use.

  • Usage of personal data

Personal data are information with which a particular person can be identified, i.e. information that can be used to track down a person. Name, email address and telephone number make up part of this information. Preferences, hobbies, memberships and websites visited are also considered personal data.

Personal data will only be used by the provider if legally allowed or if the user has agreed to it.

  • Contact

If contact is established with the provider (e.g. by email or contact form), data provided by the user will be saved for further processing and questions.

  • Comments and posts

If a user comments in a blog or other posts, the IP address will be saved. This is for security reasons and ensures the safety of the provider in the case that someone posts illegal content. In such a case, the provider could be prosecuted and therefore it is necessary to identify the author.

  • Integration of third party services and contents

It is possible that external contents may be used within the online presence of this website. Examples are: YouTube videos, Google maps, RSS feed, or graphics from other websites. This always requires that the providers of other contents (third party providers) are able to perceive the IP address of the user. Without the IP address it is not possible to send the contents to the user’s browser. Therefore the IP address is necessary in order to display the contents. We strive to use providers who use the IP address only for displaying contents. However, we do not have any influence and assume no responsibility or liability if the third party provider uses the IP address for statistical purposes. If we become aware of such information we will inform users.
