Data collection on our website
The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. His contact details can be found in the imprint of this website.
How do we collect your data?
When you visit the website, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends. This information may include information such as the anonymous IP address of your device, browser type and version, operating system type and version, language settings or the web page you visited before you came to our site, pages of our site that you visit, the time you spend on those pages, information you search for on our site, access times and dates, and other statistics.
You can visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any information that would enable anyone to identify you as a specific, identifiable individual. However, if you wish to use some of the features of the Site, you will be asked to provide certain personal information (such as your name and e-mail address). We receive and store any information that you knowingly provide to us when you create an account, post content or fill out online forms on the Site. If required, this information may include your email address, name, phone number, address, project history, skills, contacts to whom you send your CVs or other personal information. However, credit card and bank details for direct debit are not stored by us. Here we work together with external, certified service providers such as Stripe, Inc., who meet all legal requirements. You can choose not to provide us with your personal data, but then you will not be able to use the functionality of the website. Users who are not sure what information is required are welcome to contact us. Our procedures directory contains more detailed information on the individual procedures and processing, which can be requested by e-mail at any time. Please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
What do we use your data for?
Essentially, we use your data to fulfil the contractual agreements – storing, managing, sending your CV, collecting fees, etc. – with you. At all times you actively pass on your data yourself. We as operators do not pass on, sell or otherwise make your data available to third parties at any time without your active intervention.
Processing of data (customer and contract data)
We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent that they are necessary for the establishment, content or modification of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit.b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We collect, process and use personal data about the use of our website (usage data) only to the extent necessary to enable the user to use the service or to invoice the user. The customer data collected is deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
Part of the data is collected to ensure that the website is provided without errors. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour. This user behaviour helps us to find out which features are used frequently, which rarely or not at all, etc. From this we derive improvements of our service. They are not used for marketing purposes or passed on to third parties. This type of data is collected anonymously.
Data transmission upon conclusion of contract for services and digital contents
We transmit personal data to third parties only if this is necessary for the processing of the contract, for example to the credit institution commissioned with the handling of payments, and no further transmission of the data takes place or only if you have expressly agreed to the transmission. A transfer of your data to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes, will not take place. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit.b GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the right to receive information free of charge about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data at any time. You also have the right to demand the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions regarding data protection, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. Furthermore, you have a right of appeal to the responsible supervisory authority.
Analysis tools and third-party tools
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Note on the responsible party
The responsible party for data processing on this website is
Augenbroicher Str. 10453879 Euskirchen
Phone: 02234 25 090 40E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
The controller is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke a previously given consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the time of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. Please consider that a continuation of the contract is no longer given and possible and leads to a deletion of your account, which you can initiate yourself from the application.
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the State Data Protection Commissioner of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of the data protection officers and their contact details can be found on the following link:
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data, which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only take place to the extent that it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correct, block or delete this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions regarding personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
Objection to advertising mails
We hereby object to the use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation to send advertising and information material not expressly requested. The operators of this website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event that unsolicited advertising information is sent, for example by spam e-mails.
The Internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser, most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. You can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website cannot be guaranteed; cookies that are required for the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of his services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent. The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out up to the time of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation. The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage or the purpose for which the data was stored ceases to apply (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
Registration on this website
You can register on our website to use additional features on the site. We will use the data entered for this purpose only for the purpose of using the respective offer or service for which you have registered. The mandatory data requested during registration must be provided in full. Otherwise we will refuse the registration. In the event of important changes, such as changes to the scope of the offer or technically necessary changes, we will use the e-mail address provided during registration to inform you in this way. The processing of the data entered during registration is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke any consent you have given at any time. For this purpose, an informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation. The data collected during registration is stored by us for as long as you are registered on our website and is then deleted. Legal retention periods remain unaffected. In the event of a revocation, the order will no longer be fulfilled and your account will be deleted, which you can also initiate yourself in the application
Comment function on this website
For the comment function on this page, in addition to your comment, information about the time of the comment’s creation, your e-mail address and, if you are not posting anonymously, the user name you have chosen are stored.
Storage of the IP address
Our comment function stores the IP addresses of users who post comments. Since we do not check comments on our site before they are activated, we need this data in order to be able to take action against the author in the event of legal violations such as insults or propaganda.
Subscribe to comments
As a user of the site, you can subscribe to comments after logging in. You will receive a confirmation email to check if you are the owner of the email address you entered. You can unsubscribe at any time via a link in the info mails. In this case, the data entered when subscribing to comments will be deleted; however, if you have submitted this data for other purposes and elsewhere (e.g. newsletter order), it will remain with us.
Storage duration of comments
The comments and the associated data (e.g. IP address) are stored and remain on our website until the commented content has been completely deleted or the comments have to be deleted for legal reasons (e.g. insulting comments).
The storage of comments is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke any consent you have given at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal message by e-mail. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The storage of Google Analytics cookies is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise both his website and his advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. As a result, your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
Opposition to data collection
Contract data processing
We have concluded a contract with Google for commissioned data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics
This website uses the “demographic features” function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain information about the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising by Google as well as from visitor data from third parties. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time by changing the ad settings in your Google Account, or generally prohibit Google Analytics from collecting your information as described in the “Opting out of data collection” section.
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). As part of Google AdWords, we use what is known as conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that the internet browser places on the user’s computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked across the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected through the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this use by slightly disabling the Google conversion tracking cookie on your web browser under User Preferences. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. The storage of “conversion cookies” is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise both his website and his advertising. More information on Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking can be found in the Google data protection regulations: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use these data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass them on to third parties. The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address as well as its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example by using the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation. The data you have provided us with for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted after you have cancelled your subscription. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area) remains unaffected by this.
Conclusion of a Data Processing Agreement
We have concluded a so-called “Data-Processing-Agreement” with MailChimp, in which we commit MailChimp to protect the data of our customers and not to pass them on to third parties. This agreement can be viewed under the following link: https://mailchimp.com/legal/forms/data-processing-agreement/sample-agreement/.
Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. To do this, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If your browser does not support Web Fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer. Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in the Google data protection declaration: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
Accounting and payments
We use third-party payment processors (Stripe and Billwerk GmbH) to help us process your payment information securely. The use of your personal data by third parties is subject to the respective data protection guidelines. We recommend that you read the respective data protection guidelines: https://stripe.com/en-de/privacy
Acceptance of this Directive
You acknowledge that you have read this policy and agree to all its terms. By using the Site or its Services, you agree to be bound by this Policy. If you do not agree to be bound by the terms of this Policy, you may not use or access the Site or its Services.

Directory of procedures
You can view the complete list of procedures according to DSGVO at any time. Just send a short e-mail to email@example.com.
Violation of privacy
We protect the information you share with us on servers in a controlled and secure environment. This information is protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. We maintain appropriate administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure of personal information under our control and custody. However, data transmission over the Internet or wireless network cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, you acknowledge that (i) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet that are beyond our control; (ii) the security, integrity and privacy of any information and data exchanged between you and our Site cannot be guaranteed; and (iii) such information and data may be viewed or tampered with by a third party during transmission despite our best efforts. The profile data you enter on the website will be served from data centers in Germany.
Sometimes we offer products/services from partner companies. We have no influence on the data protection policies of these partners and ask for careful attention to their privacy statements.
Contact with us
hereinafter referred to generally as “Intermediaries”, receive CVs, project histories, skills, contact details and other personal data from users of the Website in the form of a “Web Profile” sent by link. These links may be public or private and protected by a pin code. Furthermore, the links may have a certain validity period after they become invalid. This data is used to provide the user with project or job offers and to introduce him/her to the end customer. It is also possible – if the user has set this in the application – to download the profile as Word or PDF. The profiles may only be saved and passed on in download format if they are used to present the candidate to the client and to initiate a contract. The passing on of private links with the pin code is not permitted. The passing on of public links of the profile is permitted. Any use of the profile beyond this is to be agreed bilaterally with the respective user and with his consent. Under no circumstances may the profile be used for purposes other than those intended, such as advertising or sale to third parties. If the operator learns of such practices, the use will be blocked for the agent and we reserve the right to take legal action.
The user can obtain references from customers and business partners via the website. For this purpose, the customer is sent a link, protected by a pin code on which a recommendation for the user can be made. The customer can decide whether his name should appear in the reference or not. In the negative case the reference is anonymous, even if his name and the e-mail is saved in the database. However, the name will not appear in the displayed profile. If the customer does not want to provide a reference at all, he can simply ignore the request. The user is then obligated to delete the request and thus also the personal data such as name and e-mail of the customer in his backend. For this purpose, a period of 8 weeks is foreseen in which the request is not answered.
