We strictly adhere to the requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (Art. 13 para. 2e EU GDPR) in all data processing processes, i.e. data collection, storage and use. Personal data entrusted to us will never be sold, leased or made available to third parties for marketing purposes.
The use of our website is usually possible without providing any personal data. Where personal data (e.g. name, address or email addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis whenever possible.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may result in gaps in security. It is not possible to completely protect data from being accessed by third parties.
ICO works with training organisations that carry out a qualification and competency assessment test following the training. For this purpose, we collect and process personal data that is passed on to external third parties for the purpose of carrying out audits. External third parties act as examiners, supervisors, reviewers and/or examiners or in any other role necessary for the administration of an examination. The required data is:
first and last name, address, date of birth, place of birth, country of birth, email address, certificate ID, date of issue and, if necessary, test results from previous examinations.
If the examination is carried out by an ICO partner (proctor), ICO may also pass this data on to the service provider.
If examinations are taken by the ICO on behalf of other training scheme providers, the ICO may transfer the following data to the training scheme provider: certificate ID, date of issue, first and last name, date of birth, place of birth. ITEMO International Education Organization e.V. (contact: email@example.com) is the training scheme provider for FitSM and Scrum. Bavarian IT-Security & Safety Cluster e.V. (contact: firstname.lastname@example.org) is the training scheme provider for ISIS12
Relevant contracts with ICO partners and training scheme providers regulate the handling of candidate data in accordance with this agreement and the stipulations of current data protection laws.
By registering for an examination or appointing a training organisation to do so and, at the latest, by participating in the examination, the examination candidate accepts the collection, processing, disclosure and use of personal data by the ICO in the course of the examination as long as there is compliance with applicable data protection laws.
