Consultation appointment via video conference
We use your personal data to arrange a consultation appointment with you and to demonstrate our demo version. For this purpose, we will send you an invitation by email. For the demonstration, we use the Microsoft Teams service, a service for online meetings and video conferencing. The service provider is the American company Microsoft Coporation One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA. Microsoft also processes data from you in the USA, among other places. We would like to point out that there is currently no adequate level of data protection there. This may be associated with various risks to the lawfulness and security of data processing. Standard contractual clauses (SCC) have been concluded in the context of data processing. This means that Microsoft undertakes to comply with the European level of data protection when processing data, even if the data is processed and stored in the USA. More information on the standard contractual clauses can be found at the following link: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/compliance/regulatory/offering-eu-model-clauses. More information on data processing by Microsoft can be found here: https://privacy.microsoft.com/de-de/privacystatement.
If you prefer a different tool than Teams, you can send us an invitation and we will use your preferred tool for the demonstration.
Registration, login and user account
Users can create a user account. In the course of registration, users are provided with the required mandatory data and processed for the purpose of providing the user account on the basis of contractual obligation fulfillment. The processed data includes in particular the login information (password as well as an e-mail address).
In the context of the use of our registration and login functions as well as the use of the user account, we store the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage is based on our legitimate interests as well as those of the users in protection against misuse and other unauthorized use. As a matter of principle, this data is not passed on to third parties unless it is necessary for the prosecution of our claims or there is a legal obligation to do so.
Your personal data is processed for the purpose of using our service. We store your personal data until you revoke your consent, but no longer than until the termination of your user account.
Possibility of uploading documents
On our website we offer you the possibility to upload documents (e.g. invoices). If you use the above upload option, the documents uploaded by you, including any personal data contained therein, will be stored for the purpose of processing your request and for the purpose of training our calculation models. The data will not be passed on to third parties. The legal basis for the processing in this respect is Art. 6 para. 1 b, f. DSGVO.
For the purpose of searching for applicants, submitting applications and selecting applicants, we use recruiting software or applicant management platforms and thus the services of third-party providers. Applicants can submit their applications to us here using an online form. The data is transmitted to us in encrypted form in accordance with the state of the art. Applicants can also send us their applications by e-mail. Please note, however, that e-mails sent via the Internet are generally not encrypted. As a rule, e-mails are encrypted in transit, but not on the servers from which they are sent and received. We can therefore accept no responsibility for the transmission path of the application between the sender and receipt on our server. Alternatively, applicants can also send us the application by post.
The data transmitted as part of your application is transferred via TLS encryption and stored in a database. This database is operated by Personio GmbH, which offers a personnel administration and applicant management software (https://www.personio.de/impressum/). Personio is our order processor in this context according to Art. 28 DSGVO. The basis for the processing here is an order processing contract between us as the controller and Personio.
We process your data on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. b DSGVO (application procedure as a pre-contractual or contractual relationship) in conjunction with § 26 BDSG.
The data provided by applicants may be further 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 will be 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 withdrawal by the applicants, the deletion will take place at the latest 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 regulations on equal treatment of applicants.
Inclusion in an applicant pool, if offered, is based on consent. Applicants are informed that their consent to inclusion in the talent pool is voluntary, has no influence on the current application process and that they can revoke their consent at any time for the future.
