When you contact us via our website for purposes other than a job application or to present an investment opportunity you will do this by clicking on an email address provided for this purpose on our website. A new email window will open in your email program. When sent the email will reach us like any other email sent to the relevant address. It will disclose to us only the sender email address and the further data which you choose to provide, just like in any other email you send. We will use the data you provide only to the extent required to process your inquiry.
At times we allow for job applications to be submitted to Point Nine by clicking on a link provided on our website which will then forward the inquiry to a questionnaire provided by the service provider Typeform, S.L. Providing the personal information requested on the questionnaire is voluntary. Your application and the personal information you provide will be accessed and processed by our human resources department and additional employees who may be assigned to evaluate your application. Data including all files will be stored in unencrypted form in our database, which however is password-protected. The data will only be used for processing your application and will not be shared with third parties other than data storage service providers (like Typeform or dropbox) without your express permission.
If we decide not to pursue discussions with you for an employment or advisory role at Point Nine we may ask you if you would like your resume to be included in a talent database like Circular. If you agree your resume and certain other information will be accessible to our portfolio companies and potentially other users of the database. We may also contact you directly in case of job openings in our portfolio which we think might be of interest to you. If your application process terminates without you being either employed or otherwise retained by Point Nine, we will delete the corresponding data within the period stipulated by applicable law unless you expressly agree that we retain your information. If you are in the Point Nine Talent Pool you can request to have your details removed at any time. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any requests and queries regarding the Talent Pool.
If you wish to present an investment opportunity you will be asked to fill out, on behalf of the company/business idea you are pitching, a questionnaire provided by Typeform, which serves as the starting point for our review and discussions with you. The use of the data you provide will depend on the direction and progress of our review and the communications with you.
We use third party data processors for the storage and processing of personal data only if the data processor has committed to data protection standards which provide at least the protection level that we adhere to.
According to German and European law, you have the right to know which data pertaining to you Point Nine has stored. You also have the right to have any incorrect data revised or deleted. From 25 May 2018, the data protection law in the EU also gives you the right to withdraw your consent at any time, limit the processing and use of your data, to file an objection and to have your data transferred. If you would like to make use of these or other rights, please contact our General Counsel. You also have the right to opt-out of communications which you may receive, notably the Point Nine newsletter, at any time. You can exercise this right by clicking on the "unsubscribe" or "opt-out" link in the emails we send you. Further, you have the right to file a complaint with a data protection authority. Point Nine is supervised by the relevant authority in the state of Berlin, the Berlin Commissioner for Data Protection and Information Freedom.
