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.com, www.talentry.de, blog.talentry.com). 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 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.
2. 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
3. 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 – is 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 in 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, a device used, browser configuration data.
- Data collected in the course of web page tracking and newsletter tracking
Our website is not aimed at underage persons and we also do not knowingly collect the personal data of underage 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.
4. Who has access to your data and to whom we pass your data
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.
If you decide to register through or otherwise grant access to a third-party integrated service such as Google or Microsoft, Talentry may also collect Personal Information that is already associated with your integrated service account. You may also have the option of sharing additional information with Talentry.
If you decide to use Talentry as email client, we will only use access to read, write, modify, or control message bodies (including attachments), metadata, headers, and settings to provide a web email client that allows users to compose, send, read, and process emails. Talentry will adhere to Google’s Limited Use Requirements and Microsoft Privacy Statement.
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.
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 that does not have data protection to the acknowledged high level of the European Union, we ensure through contractual provisions or other recognized 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.
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.
5. 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 the 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 defense 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;
- another exception under Art. 17 3. GDPR applies.
Sint oratio at per, diam saepe dicam ei sea. At civibus appetere cum, quem habeo in. Eam modo apeirian te, ut altera iisque evertitur sit. Cu saperet inermis aliquando nam, per impetus qualisque interesset ex, vix at omittantur instructior disputationi.

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.
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.
