General Information on Data Processing by us

Compliance with the requirements of data protection law and the protection of your data are of particular concern to us. We only process personal data within the framework of data protection law and for the purposes specified in this framework. You can find these legal bases and purposes in the information on the individual processing situations.

Recipients of Personal Data

We process your personal data within the scope of the purposes stated here. For these purpose, we also use service providers as so-called data processors who, for example, provide IT systems. We select these service providers carefully with regard to their measures for the protection of personal data and regularly review these measures. We conclude data processing agreements with the service providers in order to impose obligations on the data processors to protect your data over and above statutory requirements. Where in individual cases we use service providers outside the EEA, we ensure that these service providers protect your personal data in such a way as is required under German and European law. For this purpose, we check whether there is an adequacy decision by the EU Commission that certifies adequate protection for the country in which the service provider is located; if this is not the case, we ensure adequate protection through contractual and technical measures. In particular, we use the so-called EU standard contractual clauses for this purpose.

We may also disclose your data to other data controllers, namely if you instruct us to do so, for example when applying for a job to the relevant employer or if we are legally obliged to do so.

Duration of Processing

We process your data as long as it is necessary for the purposes outlined here. Thereafter, we delete your personal data without delay. Insofar as there are retention obligations, for example for reasons of tax law, we await the relevant periods and then delete your personal data.

Your Rights

As a data subject, you have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether personal data relating to yourself is being processed by us and, if so, the right to obtain information about this personal data, the right to have your inaccurate data corrected, the right to have your data deleted and the right to have your data restricted (blocked).

In addition, in the event of processing based on legitimate interests, you may object to the processing. If you have provided this data, you can request the transfer of personal data. If the processing is based on consent, you can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. You also have the right to contact the competent data protection supervisory authority. If you have any questions or complaints about data protection, we recommend that you first contact our data protection officer.

Please note there are legal requirements for the exercise of your rights which we must observe. Where this has an impact on exercising your rights, we will let you know.

Need to ProvidePersonal Data 

You are under no obligation to provide us with personal data. However, if you decide not to do so, you may not be able to use our services, or you may only be able to use them to a limited extent. This applies, for example, to the use of the website or the mediation in application procedures.
