Security measures

In accordance with Art. 32 GDPR and taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances and purposes of the processing as well as the varying probability of occurrence and severity of the risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, we take appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk.

These measures include in particular ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling the physical access to the data, as well as the access, input, disclosure, assurance of availability and segregation thereof. In addition, we have established procedures to ensure that data subjects’ rights are exercised, that data is deleted and that we respond to any threat to the data. Furthermore, we take into account the protection of personal data already during the development or selection of hardware, software and processes, in accordance with the principle of data protection through technology design and through data protection-friendly default settings (Art. 25 GDPR).

Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or store the data in a third country only if the special conditions of Art. 44 ff. GDPR. This means that the processing is carried out on the basis of, for example, specific guarantees, such as the officially recognised establishment of a level of data protection equivalent to that in the EU (e.g. for the US through the Privacy Shield) or compliance with officially recognised specific contractual obligations (so-called ‘standard contractual clauses’).

Cookies and right of objection for direct advertising

“Cookies” are small files that are stored on the user’s computer. Different information can be stored within the cookies. The primary purpose of a cookie is to store information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after his visit within an online offer. Temporary cookies, or “session cookies” or “transient cookies”, are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online offer and closes his browser. In such a cookie, for example, the contents of a shopping cart in an online shop or a login status can be stored. Cookies are described as “permanent” or “persistent” if they remain stored even after the browser is closed. For example, the login status can be saved if users visit the site after several days. Likewise, the interests of the users can be stored in such a cookie, which is used for coverage measurement or marketing purposes. “Third-party cookies” are cookies that are offered by providers other than the person responsible for operating the online service (otherwise, if it is only their cookies, one speaks of “first-party cookies”).

We may use temporary and permanent cookies and provide information on this in our privacy policy.

If users do not want cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of their browser. Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online offer.

A general objection to the use of cookies used for online marketing purposes can be declared for many of the services, especially in the case of tracking, via the US site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. Furthermore, the storage of cookies can be achieved by deactivating them in the browser settings. Please note that in this case not all functions of this online offer can be used.

Deletion of data

The data processed by us will be deleted or restricted in their processing in accordance with articles 17 and 18 GDPR. Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory storage obligations. If the data are not deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing is restricted. This means that the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained for commercial or tax law reasons.

According to legal requirements in Germany, the storage takes place in particular for 10 years according to §§ 147 para. 1 AO, 257 para. 1 nos. 1 and 4, para. 4 HGB (books, records, management reports, accounting vouchers, trading books, documents relevant for taxation, etc.) and 6 years according to § 257 para. 1 nos. 2 and 3, para. 4 HGB (commercial letters).

According to legal requirements in Austria, the storage is carried out in particular for 7 J in accordance with § 132 para. 1 BAO (accounting documents, vouchers/invoices, accounts, receipts, business documents, statement of income and expenditure, etc.), for 22 years in connection with real estate and for 10 years for documents in connection with electronically provided services, telecommunications, radio and television services which are provided to non-entrepreneurs in EU member states and for which the Mini-One-Stop-Shop (MOSS) is used.

Business-related processing

Additionally we process
– Contract data (e.g., subject matter of the contract, duration, customer category).
– Payment data (e.g., bank details, payment history)
from our customers, interested parties and business partners for the purpose of providing contractual services, service and customer care, marketing, advertising and market research.

Contractual services

We process the data of our contractual partners and interested parties as well as other principals, customers, clients, clients or contractual partners (uniformly referred to as “contractual partners”) in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. b. GDPR in order to provide them with our contractual or pre-contractual services. The data processed, the nature, scope, purpose and necessity of their processing are determined by the underlying contractual relationship.

The processed data includes the master data of our contractual partners (e.g., names and addresses), contact data (e.g., e-mail addresses and telephone numbers) as well as contract data (e.g., services used, contract contents, contractual communication, names of contact persons) and payment data (e.g., bank details, payment history).

As a matter of principle, we do not process special categories of personal data, unless these are part of a commissioned or contractual processing.

We process data which are necessary for the justification and fulfilment of the contractual services and point out the necessity of their disclosure, if this is not evident to the contractual partners. Disclosure to external persons or companies is only made if it is required under a contract. When processing the data provided to us within the framework of an order, we act in accordance with the instructions of the client and the legal requirements.

When using our online services, we may store the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage is based on our legitimate interests, as well as the interests of the users in protection against misuse and other unauthorized use. In principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties, unless it is necessary to pursue our claims in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR or there is a legal obligation to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 (c) GDPR.

The data will be deleted when the data is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of contractual or statutory duties of care as well as for dealing with any warranty and comparable obligations, whereby the necessity of keeping the data will be reviewed every three years; in all other respects, the statutory retention obligations apply.

Administration, financial accounting, office organization, contact management

We process data within the framework of administrative tasks as well as the organisation of our operations, financial accounting and compliance with legal obligations, such as archiving. In doing so, we process the same data that we process within the scope of providing our contractual services. The basis for processing is Art. 6 Par. 1 (c) GDPR, Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR. Customers, interested parties, business partners and website visitors are affected by the processing. The purpose and our interest in data processing lies in the administration, financial accounting, office organization, archiving of data, i.e. tasks that serve to maintain our business activities, perform our tasks and provide our services. The erasure of data in relation to contractual services and contractual communication is in accordance with the indications given for these processing activities.

In doing so, we disclose or transfer data to the tax authorities, consultants, such as tax advisors or auditors, as well as other fee earners and payment service providers.

Furthermore, we store information on suppliers, event organisers and other business partners on the basis of our business interests, e.g. for the purpose of contacting them at a later date. We store these mostly company-related data permanently.

Economic analyses and market research

In order to run our business economically, to identify market trends, wishes of contractual partners and users, we analyse the data available to us on business transactions, contracts, inquiries, etc. We process inventory data, communication data, contract data, payment data, usage data, meta data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, whereby the persons concerned include contractual partners, interested parties, customers, visitors and users of our online offer.

The analyses are made for the purpose of economic evaluations, marketing and market research. In doing so, we can take into account the profiles of registered users with information, e.g. on the services they have used. The analyses help us to increase user-friendliness, to optimize our offer and business efficiency. The analyses are not disclosed externally, unless they are anonymous analyses with summarized values.

If these analyses or profiles are personal, they will be deleted or made anonymous upon termination by the user, otherwise after two years from conclusion of the contract. In all other respects, the macroeconomic analyses and general trend determinations are prepared anonymously wherever possible.

Data protection notices in the application procedure

We process the applicants data only for the purpose and within the scope of the application procedure in accordance with the legal requirements. The processing of the applicant data is carried out to fulfil our (pre-)contractual obligations within the framework of the application procedure in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 (b) GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR if the data processing becomes necessary for us, e.g. within the framework of legal procedures (in Germany, § 26 BDSG applies additionally).

The application procedure requires that applicants provide us with their application data. If we offer an online form, the necessary applicant data is marked as such, otherwise it is derived from the job description and basically includes personal details, postal and contact addresses and the documents belonging to the application, such as cover letter, CV and certificates. In addition, applicants may voluntarily provide us with additional information.

By submitting their application to us, applicants agree to the processing of their data for the purposes of the application procedure in accordance with the type and scope described in this data protection declaration.

Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 Para. 1 GDPR are voluntarily communicated as part of the application procedure, their processing is additionally carried out in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 2 (b) GDPR (e.g. health data, such as severely disabled status or ethnic origin). Insofar as special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 Para. 1 GDPR are requested from applicants as part of the application procedure, their processing is also carried out in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 2 (a) GDPR (e.g. health data if this is necessary for the exercise of the profession).

If provided, applicants can send us their applications using an online form on our website. The data will be encrypted and transmitted to us according to the state of the art.
Applicants can also send us their applications by e-mail. Please note, however, that e-mails are generally not sent in encrypted form and that the applicants themselves must ensure that they are encrypted. We can therefore not take responsibility for the transmission path of the application between the sender and the reception on our server and therefore recommend rather to use an online form or the postal dispatch. Instead of applying via the online form and e-mail, applicants still have the option of sending us their application by post.

The data provided by the applicants may be processed by us for the purposes of the employment relationship in the event of a successful application. Otherwise, if the application for a job offer is not successful, the applicants’ data is deleted. Applicants’ data will also be deleted if an application is withdrawn, which applicants are entitled to do at any time.

Subject to a justified revocation by the applicants, the deletion will take place after the expiry of a period of six months so that we can answer any follow-up questions about the application and meet our obligations to provide evidence under the Equal Treatment Act. Invoices for any reimbursement of travel expenses are archived in accordance with tax regulations.

Talent-Pool

As part of the application process, we offer applicants the opportunity to be included in our “talent pool” for a period of two years on the basis of consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 (b) and Art. 7 GDPR.

The application documents in the talent pool will be processed solely in the context of future job advertisements and the search for employees and will be destroyed at the latest when the deadline expires. Applicants are informed that their consent to be included in the talent pool is voluntary, that it has no influence on the current application procedure and that they can revoke this consent at any time for the future and declare their objection in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR.

Hosting and e-mailing

The hosting services used by us serve to provide the following services: Infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, e-mail dispatch, security services and technical maintenance services that we use for the purpose of operating this online offer.

Collection of access data and log files

We, or our hosting provider, on the basis of our legitimate interests as defined in Art. 6 Par. 1 (f) GDPR data about every access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files). The access data includes the name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, transferred data volume, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited site), IP address and the requesting provider.

For security reasons (e.g. to clear up acts of abuse or fraud), log file information is stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. Data whose further storage is required for evidential purposes are excluded from deletion until final clarification of the respective incident.

Google Maps

We integrate the maps of the “Google Maps” service of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The processed data may include, in particular, IP addresses and location data of the users, which, however, cannot be collected without their consent (usually in the context of the settings of their mobile devices).
