2. Scope of data protection
Data protection concerns personal data as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation, i.e. all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. Identifiable is any natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or one or more special characteristics. Usage data is data required to use our website; this data includes the start, end, and extent of the user’s website use.
3. Automatic data collection via website access
When you access our website, your device automatically transmits certain data for technical reasons. The following data is stored separately from any other data you may transmit to us:

– Amount of data sent

– Notification of successful data retrieval
– Search term when using a web browser

This data is stored for purely technical reasons and is never associated with any particular individual. The data about website access is used for error analysis, ensuring the security of the systems, logging of access to paid services (e.g. InstaText One), and to improve our text improvement service. For legitimate reasons, the full IP address is used to achieve the stated purposes for a very short period of a maximum of 14 days.
4. Texts and improvements
When you use our text improvement service, you transfer all the texts you want to improve to our servers. This is necessary so that we can perform the improvement and provide you with the service. When using InstaText services, the texts you submit and their improvements are never stored and are only used to the extent necessary to create the improvement. We do not use your texts to improve the quality of our services. You can find detailed information in InstaText Terms and Conditions.
Please note that we strongly advise you not to use our text improvement service for texts that contain personal data of any kind.

We use “cookies” to provide you with a wide range of functionalities and enhance your user experience. Cookies are tiny files stored on your computer through your browser. If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may deactivate cookie storage on your computer by changing your browser settings accordingly. Please note that the proper functioning of the website may be impaired and the range of functionalities may be limited if you deactivate cookies.
In particular, we are using the following cookies:
– Cookies to store your preferred languages and custom settings
– Cookies to store your InstaText Pro login information (if you have subscribed to InstaText Pro)
– Cookies with an individual identifier to re-identify your browser (please refer to the “Pseudonymous user profiles” and “Google Analytics” sections for further details)
7. Pseudonymous user profiles
We use a cookie to re-identify your browser and to generate pseudonymous user profiles. Such profiles are used to store certain non-personal technical information on your use of our service (such as your preferred language and corrections you made to your improvements). We use this data to improve our text improvement service, to train our algorithm and to get statistical insights on the use of our service.
If you do not want us to generate such profiles, you can opt-out by selecting the following option:
– I refuse the storage of my user profile.
If you refuse storage of your user profile, we will set a cookie which identifies your browser and allows us to exclude your browser from future generation of user profiles.
The cookies mentioned above are so-called first-party cookies. This means that the above statistics apply only to the use of our website.
8. Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
We use Google Analytics with the anonymization function. By means of this addition, Google shortens and anonymizes the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned, if our Internet pages are accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
You may deactivate Google Analytics with the help of a browser add-on if you do not want this website analysis. This add-on can be downloaded here. You can also activate the “I refuse the storage of my user profile” option above, which will deactivate the Google Analytics service on our website in your browser.
User-based event data at Google Analytics is deleted after 38 months.
We offer you the possibility to apply for open positions via our career page, the integrated career portal, or via email. By using this form of digital application, your personal and application data are electronically collected for the processing of your application. We use the personal data you provide solely to process your application. Your personal data will only be forwarded or otherwise transferred to persons involved in our recruiting activities as part of the application process.
If an employment contract is concluded after the application process, we store your personal data in your personnel file for standard organisational and administrative purposes. This is naturally in compliance with further legal obligations.
In the event of a cancellation on our part, we will automatically delete the data transmitted to us three months after notification of the rejection. However, this deletion will not take place if the data must be stored for a longer period of up to four months or until the conclusion of legal proceedings due to legal provisions, e.g. due to the burden of proof in accordance with Slovenian law.
If you expressly consent to your data being stored for a longer period, e.g. for inclusion in our internal applicant pool, the data will be processed further with your consent. However, you can of course revoke your consent at any time with future effect.
