Privacy Policy

We take data protection seriously

The protection of your privacy when processing personal data is important to us. Whenever you visit our website, our web server generally saves the IP address of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visited us, the pages you visit on our website and the date and duration of the visit. This information is absolutely essential for the technical transmission of the website and the secure operation of the server. A personalized evaluation of this data is not carried out.

If you send us data using the contact form, this data is saved on our server in the course of a data backup. Your data will be exclusively used by us for dealing with your request. Your data will be treated as strictly confidential. This data will not be forwarded to third parties.

Personal data

Personal data is data about you. This includes your names, address and email address. You do not have to provide us with any personal data to visit our website. In some cases, we require your name and address and other information so that we can provide you with the desired services.

The same is also true if we have been requested by you to supply information material or if we are answering your enquiries. We will always point this out to you in these cases. Otherwise, we only save the data that you automatically or voluntarily send to us.

If you use one of our services, we generally only collect the data that we require to provide you with our service. It is possible that we will ask you for further information, but this is provided on a voluntary basis. Whenever we process your personal data, we do this so that we can provide you with our services or to pursue our commercial objectives.

Applicant’s declaration of consent

Your personal data will be stored and processed in accordance with the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG (new)) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR). Your details will be treated in the strictest of confidence and encrypted while being sent electronically. Personal data will only be gathered, processed, or used by us for the purposes of processing applications. It will not be passed onto any third parties. Data such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail, etc. will be gathered to permit the use of the online application process. This data is used strictly for the purposes of contacting you about your application.

Your application will be processed by our human resources department as quickly as possible. The application will then be passed onto the relevant department or an internal company within our group of companies (NIELSEN+PARTNER Unternehmensberater GmbH, NIELSEN+PARTNER Unternehmensberater AG and NIELSEN+PARTNER S.A.). It may take a little while to review your application documents.

If we are unable to find a suitable vacancy to match your profile, we will delete all of your data at the time we inform you of this. However, if your profile is essentially of interest to us and the only reason why we are unable to consider your application is because there is currently no suitable vacancy, you can grant us your consent to keep your application details and store them for a period of 12 months.

By checking the checkbox, you confirm your consent.

Automatically saved non-personal data

Whenever you visit our website, we save certain information for administrative and technical reasons in some cases. This could include: The type and version of the browser used, the data and time of access and the IP address.

This data is then made anonymous and only used for statistical purposes or for the purpose of improving our Internet and online services. This anonymous data is saved – separately from personal data – on secure systems and cannot be allocated to any individual persons. This means that your personal data remains protected at all times.

Naturally, you can also visit our website without accepting cookies. If you do not want your computer to be recognized again on your next visit to our website, you can also block the use of cookies by changing the relevant settings in your browser to “block cookies”.
