Data Protection Policy

  1. ABOUT US

We, Talentry GmbH, are responsible for the collection, processing and storage of your data. You can obtain our details from our legal notice at any time.

The careful handling of your personal data is of paramount importance to us. In the course of processing we comply with the statutory provisions, for example the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and with the national regulations relating thereto.

This data protection policy applies to all websites of our group accessible under our domains (www.talentry.comwww.talentry.de). Where you move to websites of other operators in the course of accessing our offering, the data protection provisions, for the content of which those operators are responsible, apply on those sites.

Since we wish to give you a comprehensive overview of the processing of personal data in our business, you will find below an overview of all our services in the course of which we collect and process personal data.

Where separate or additional conditions apply for individual services or we are asking for a consent, we shall inform you specifically in advance of the respective service (for instance for the newsletter or when you are making contact with us).

In addition, we take various security precautions to protect your personal data. This means that the transfer between your web browser and our servers for instance is always transport-encrypted; we also maintain a number of technical and also organisational measures to protect your data constantly.

  1. WHY WE PROCESS YOUR DATA

You can always use our website without revealing your identity. If you register for our newsletter or wish to make contact with us, we ask for your name and other personal information. It is your decision whether you provide this (broader) data. Data that is a mandatory requirement from you in order to provide our services is designated as such.

The collection and processing of your personal data is carried out for the following purposes on the basis of the following legal grounds:

  • Contract initiation under Art. 6 1. (a) and (b) GDPR
  • Contract performance under Art. 6 1. (b) GDPR
  • Client management under Art. 6 1. (b), (c) and (f) GDPR
  • Communications and data exchange under Art. 6 1. (a), (b), (c) and (f) GDPR
  • External communications and advertising under Art. 6 1. (a) and (f) GDPR
  • Implementation of informed consent under Art. 6 1. (a) GDPR
  • Securing the proper operation of a data processing system under Art. 6 1. (c) and (f) GDPR
  • Applicant selection procedure in the course of personnel and resources administration on the basis of Art. 6 1. (a) and (b) GDPR in conjunction with S.26 new German Federal Data Protection Act

 

 

  1. YOUR DATA THAT WE COLLECT AND PROCESS

We collect various categories of personal data from you. Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name. Personal data includes for instance information such as your name, your address, your telephone number and your date of birth (where provided). Statistical information that cannot be connected to you directly or indirectly – such as for instance the popularity of individual web pages of our offering or the number of users of a page – are not personal data. This includes directly and indirectly collected data. In both cases data are collected only to the extent necessary; the data are processed exclusively for the purposes set out at paragraph 2. Whether you wish to pass data to us that optimise the use of our services for you but that are not necessary for that use, is your decision. Corresponding data fields are designated “voluntary”.

The directly collected data comprise:

  • Email address, for instance for the purposes of the newsletter or to make contact using our contact form
  • Applicant details to implement our online application procedure
  • Data that you pass to us actively and consciously in the course of using our services,
  • Further data that you pass to us voluntarily, for instance data fields designated “voluntary” and completed by you

 

In addition to this during the course of using our services data concerning you are collected indirectly:

  • Technical connection data, for instance the pages of our web offering accessed, your IP address, shortened by the last three numbers, date and time of access, device used, browser configuration data.
  • Data collected in the course of web page tracking and newsletter tracking

Under age persons:

Our website is not aimed at under age persons and we also do not knowingly collect personal data of under-age persons.

Where persons under the age of 16 pass personal data to us, this is only permitted where the person with parental authority has him/herself agreed or has approved the agreement of the young person. For this purpose the contact data of the person with parental authority must be provided to us under Art.8 2. GDPR in order that we may be certain of the consent or the approval of the person with parental authority. These data and the data of the under-age person are then processed in accordance with this data protection policy.

Where we ascertain that an under-age person under 16 years has sent us personal data without the agreement of the person with parental authority or his/her approval of the agreement of the under-age person, the data shall be erased immediately.

  1. WHO HAS ACCESS TO YOUR DATA AND TO WHOM WE PASS YOUR DATA
  2. a) Access

Access to your personal data stored by us is restricted to our employees and to the service providers commissioned by us who need to deal with this personal data to perform their tasks.

Where third parties are given access to your data, we have obtained your permission for this or there is a legal ground for it.

We also employ service providers to provide services and to process data (inter alia for hosting, newsletter distribution, dispatch of letters or emails and the maintenance and analysis of databases, the protection of our web server or for tracking web pages). Where special provisions apply for this, we have listed these below according to the respective service for you. The service providers process the data exclusively at our direction and are under an obligation to comply with the applicable data protection provisions. All processors have been carefully selected and receive access to your data only to the extent and for the necessary time required to provide the services or to the extent to which you have agreed to the processing and use of the data.

  1. b) Transfer to third countries and legal basis

The servers of some of the service providers employed by us are situated in the USA and other countries outside the European Union. Undertakings in these countries are subject to a data protection law that does not generally protect personal data to the same extent as is the case in the member states of the European Union. Where your data are processed in a country which does not have data protection to the acknowledged high level of the European Union, we ensure through contractual provisions or other recognised instruments that your personal data are appropriately protected. We will advise you of this again expressly in the context of the individual services.

Where a transfer of personal data to third countries occurs, this is on the basis of the EU-US Privacy Shield decision in accordance with Art. 45 GDPR or the 2010 Decision on standard contractual clauses, in accordance with Art. 46 2. (c) GDPR in conjunction with the Decision of the EU Commission of 05.02.2010 (2010/87/EU) or on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 49 1. (a) GDPR.

  1. c) Transfer to prosecution and criminal investigation authorities 

In exceptional cases we transfer personal data to prosecution and criminal investigation authorities. This occurs on the basis of relevant statutory obligations, for instance under the Criminal Procedure Code, the Tax Code, the Money Laundering Act or state police laws.

  1. STORAGE PERIODS

We store personal data in accordance with statutory regulations or your consent.

To determine actual storage periods we use the following criteria:

We store the personal data until the purposes for which they were collected come to an end (for instance at termination of a contractual relationship or following final activity, where there is no continuing obligation, or where you withdraw your consent to the specific data processing).

Storage beyond this occurs only where

  • there are statutory retention requirements (for instance under the Tax Code and the Commercial Code);
  • the data are still needed for the establishment and exercise of legal claims or the defence of legal claims, for instance by reason of technological and forensic requirements for the defence against attacks on our web server and their prosecution;
  • the erasure would be counter to the data subject’s legitimate interests;

or

  • another exception under Art. 17 3. GDPR applies.

 

  1. YOUR RIGHTS

You have a series of statutory rights that we wish to refer you to below. In addition, our data protection officer is of course available to you for questions concerning data collected and processed in relation to you via the contact details given below.

  1. a) Right to access and data portability

You have the right at any time to access to the personal data concerning you processed by us.

Where the data was processed on the basis of your consent or on the basis of a contract according to Art 6 1. (b) GDPR, you may also require under Art. 20 1. GDPR receipt of the stored personal data concerning you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. At your request we shall also transmit the data directly to a recipient specified by you.

  1. b) Right to rectification, restriction and erasure

Further you may under Art. 16 to 18 GDPR require us to rectify, restrict (storage) or erase your personal data where the data has been inaccurately processed by us, there are grounds for restriction of further data processing or the data processing has become unlawful for other reasons or where its storage is not permitted for other legal reasons. We ask you to note that your right to erasure can be restricted owing to statutory retention periods.

  1. c) Right to object

Where our data processing is based exclusively on our legitimate interest under Art 6 1. (f) GDPR, you may object to this processing under Art. 21 1. GDPR. We then cease processing your data unless we can demonstrate data protection grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms or where the processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim. In addition, you always have the right to object to the use of your data for the purposes of direct marketing with future effect under Art. 21 2. GDPR.

  1. d) Right to withdraw consent

Where you have allowed us by consent to process your personal data, you have a right under Art. 7 3. GDPR to withdraw consent with future effect.

  1. USE OF OUR WEBSITE – PROFILING, COOKIES AND WEB TRACKING
  2. a) Basic information on Cookies and Opt Out options

We use so-called cookies in some areas of our website, for instance in order to identify visitors’ preferences and to be able to optimize the website correspondingly. This makes navigation easier and contributes significantly to the user-friendliness of a web page. Cookies help us also in the identification of particularly popular areas of our Internet offering. Cookies are small files that are stored on the hard drives of visitors to the site. They enable information to be held for a specific period and the identification of the visitor’s computer. We use permanent cookies to improve the user experience and individual performance mapping.

Also, we use so-called session cookies, that are automatically erased when you close your browser. You may set your browser so that it informs you when cookies are placed. In this way the use of cookies will be transparent to you. This is done in order to check the authorisation of actions and the authentication of the enquiring user of our services. The legal grounds are Art. 6 1. (c) in conjunction with Art. 32 and Art. 6 1. (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the safeguarding of our web server in order for instance to defend against attacks, and the guaranteed functionality of our services.

We only use cookies that are not technically necessary having obtained your express consent that you may of course withdraw at any time.

Our cookie information on our web site provides in relation to these that you agree the following declaration:

This web site uses Tracking Cookies or Tracking Software in order to be able to offer you inter alia the full scope of functions of our web site and thus a better online experience. More detailed information on the cookies and web-tracking process used by us and the consents provided by you to this can be found in our data protection statement. Technically unnecessary cookies and our tracking software are however activated only after you have provided us with your consent. 

If you completely bar the use of cookies, you will not be able to use individual functions of our web site – including the option of cookie based opt-out from tracking. Please allow as appropriate the opt-out cookies for the services where you would like to prevent tracking.

Please also remember that the erasure of all cookies will result also in opt-out cookies being erased. You would therefore have to reset these as appropriate. Cookies are also tied to a browser, i.e. they must always be set separately for each browser used by you on each device used by you. The necessary links for this can be found below in the description of the respective services.

  1. b) Google Analytics

This web site uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that enable analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will however be abbreviated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other Contracting States to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On our account Google will use this information in order to evaluate your use of the website, to compose reports on the website activities and to provide further services connected with website use and Internet use to the website operator. The IP address transmitted from your browser by Google Analytics will not be merged by Google with other data. It is possible to object to web analysis by Google Analytics by setting an opt-out cookie which instructs Google not to store or use your data for the purposes of web analysis. Please note that this solution prevents web analysis only for so long as the opt-out cookie is stored by the browser. If you would like to set the opt-out cookie now, please click  https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gajs/?hl=de#disable.

However, you can also prevent the storage of the cookies by using a corresponding setting in your browser software; we ask you to note however that in this case it is possible that not all functions of this website can be used to their full extent. You can also prevent the capture by Google of the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by down-loading and installing the browser plug in at the following link.
