Collecting and storing data for internal system and statistical purposes
Every time you access our website, your internet browser automatically sends the following data to our web server for technical reasons:
- the current IP address of the internet connection you are using
- if you visit our website via a link, the site you were on before you came to our website
- information about which pages on our website you visit
- the date and time of your visit
- the operating system, browser name (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) and browser version you are using
This data is made up of log files, which are also known as server log files. They are stored for a maximum of seven days and are then anonymized. These log files are only used for statistical purposes (e.g., to see how often certain pages on our website are visited) or to monitor the technical functioning of our network and system in order to identify disruptions to server operations. This anonymized data is stored – separately from personal data – in secure systems and cannot be traced back to any individual person. This means that your personal data is protected at all times.
This is a technical requirement in order for us to be able to display our website. If it involves personal data, the legal basis for collecting such data is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
Personal data is data that relates to you as a person. This includes your name, address, and email address. You do not need to disclose any personal data in order to visit our website. In some cases, we require your name and address, and other information in order to tailor our service to suit your needs.
The same applies if you would like us to send you information and when we reply to your inquiries. We will always inform you of this in these cases. Aside from that, we only store data that you have automatically or voluntarily provided to us.
If you use one of our services, we usually only collect the data that is required in order for us to provide you with that service. Sometimes we might ask you for additional, optional information. If we ever have to process personal data, we do so in order to provide you with our service or to achieve our commercial aims.
If you send data – such as your first name, last name, email address – to us using a contact form, this data will be stored on our servers for information security reasons. It will not be forwarded to any third parties.
The legal basis for this processing is your consent as defined in Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. If the purpose of your inquiry is to take preparatory steps toward concluding a contract, Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR constitutes an additional legal basis. We only use your data in order to process your inquiry. Your data will be handled with the strictest confidentiality.
We collect different types of information as part of your application. This includes in particular your personal data alongside your contact information and a description of your education, employment history, and skills. You also have the option of sending us electronically stored documents, such as résumés and cover letters.
We do not require any information from you that cannot be used in accordance with Germany’s General Act on Equal Treatment (Allgemeinen Gleichbehandlungsgesetz), e.g., about your race, ethnicity, gender, religion or world view, disability, age, or sexual orientation. Please do not include information about any illnesses you might have, whether you are pregnant, your ethnicity, your political views, your philosophical or religious convictions, your membership in a union, your physical or mental health, or your sex life either. The same applies to content that could infringe upon the rights of third parties (e.g. intellectual property rights or the general rights of third parties).
Your personal data is only collected, stored, processed, and used for purposes connected with your interest in a current or future role with us and the processing of your application. It will not be forwarded to any third parties. When you use the online application process, data such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, etc. is collected. This data is strictly used to contact you about your application.
If your application is successful, the data you provide can be used for administrative matters during your employment.
Your online application is only processed and read by the relevant contacts at our company. All employees assigned the task of data processing are bound by an obligation to keep your data confidential. Your data will never be disclosed to any third parties. Data is only processed in Germany.
If we are unable to offer you a role, we will store the data you have provided in line with statutory retention periods for up to six months in order to respond to questions relating to your application and rejection.
If you have provided us with your explicit written consent to hold and store your data for longer than this storage period, we will be able to consider you for suitable roles that might become available in future. Otherwise your application data will be completely erased. Your application is registered by the Umantis software provided by Haufe-Lexware GmbH & Co. KG, Munzinger Straße 9, 79111 Freiburg, Germany. We have concluded a data processing agreement with Lexware.

To send out our newsletter we use what is referred to as a “double opt-in procedure,” i.e., we will only send out a newsletter to you by email if you have previously expressly confirmed that we are to activate this newsletter service. We will then send you a notification email and request that you click on a link in that email to confirm that you would like to receive our newsletter. When you subscribe to our newsletter, we store your IP address and the date of registration. The only reason that this data is stored is to use it as evidence in the event that a third party misuses your email address to register you for the newsletter without your knowledge or permission. If you decide later that you would prefer not to receive our newsletter, you can unsubscribe at any time. Your data is not forwarded to any third parties. It is only possible to subscribe to the newsletter by providing your consent. The legal basis for this processing is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. We only use this data to send out newsletters.
