  • file a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority regarding data processing (the German Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (Bundesbeauftragter für den Datenschutz und die Informationsfreiheit) or the State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Hesse (Landesbeauftragter für den Datenschutz und die Informationsfreiheit Hessen)).

1.3 To whom does DANGELMAYER SEEMANN pass on your data?

While using our website, your data will not be forwarded to any third party. 

Within the scope of our activities as management consultants, it may be necessary to forward personal data to processors, i.e. companies that we commission with the processing of data within the scope provided by law (Art. 28 GDPR: service providers, agents). In this case, DANGELMAYER & SEEMANN also remains responsible for protecting your data. We engage companies in the following areas in particular: IT, marketing, finance, HR, logistics, and printing. 

Furthermore, personal data may be passed on to cooperation partners who, on their own responsibility, provide services for you or in conjunction with your DANGELMAYER SEEMANN contract. This is the case if you order services from these partners through us, if you consent to the involvement of the partner, or if we involve the partner on the basis of legal permission.

In certain cases, we are legally obliged to transfer certain data to a legitimate government agency upon request. 

The processing of personal data by DANGELMAYER & SEEMANN takes place exclusively for a specific purpose and based on the need to fulfil the execution of contracts with our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 (1b) GDPR), as well as in the interest of secure, fast, efficient and professional service provision (Art. 6 (1f) GDPR).

Any use of personal data by DANGELMAYER & SEEMANN will only take place with explicit consent of the party concerned. In this case, DANGELMAYER SEEMANN remains responsible for the protection of your data.

1.4 Where is your data processed?

As a general rule, your data will be processed in Germany and other European countries. If, in exceptional cases, your data is also processed in countries outside the European Union (i.e., in third countries), this is done only if you have explicitly given your consent, if it is necessary for us to provide you with services, or if it is prescribed by law (Art. 49 GDPR) or if certain measures ensure a suitable level of data protection (e.g. EU Commission’s adequacy decision or suitable guarantees, Art. 44 et seq. GDPR). 

2. Notice for all visitors of this website

2.1 External Hosting und Content Delivery Network (CDN)

This website is hosted by an external service provider (site operator). The data collected on this website is stored on the site operator’s servers.

The site operator is used for the purpose of fulfilling the contract with our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 (1b) GDPR) and in the interest of a secure, fast and efficient provision of our online offer by a professional provider (Art. 6 (1f) GDPR). Our site operator will only process your data to the extent necessary to fulfill its service obligations and follow our instructions regarding this data.

To ensure data protection-compliant processing, we have concluded an order processing contract with our site operator, taking into account all applicable data protection aspects.

2.2 Collection of technical characteristics in the provision of the website

When you visit our websites, the web server temporarily records so-called server log information (browser type and version, operating system used, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer, time of the server request, IP address). A combination of this data with other data sources is excluded.

The logged data is used as such exclusively for data security purposes, in particular to protect against attempted attacks on our web server. They are neither used for the creation of individual user profiles nor passed on to third parties and are deleted after 7 days at the latest.

We reserve the right to statistically analyze anonymized data records (Art. 6 (1f) GDPR, legitimate interest).

We do not collect personal data in excess of that, such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address, unless you provide this information voluntarily (see below our information for applicants).

2.3 Analysis of the usage behavior of our websites

We want you to enjoy using our website and take advantage of our content and services. We have an economic interest in this.

This website uses the WordPress analytics plugin WP Statistics from the developer team Verona Labs. WP Statistics can be used to create statistics about the reach, visitor numbers and structure of our website. The protection of your privacy and personal data is paramount when using WP Statistics. WP Statistics itself does not collect any personal data from visitors. Rather, WP Statistics anonymizes visitors’ IP addresses before storing them. For this purpose, no usage profiles are created, and no cookies are set. A personal identification of a visitor is therefore not possible, even retrospectively.

The purpose of data collection and analysis is always and exclusively to improve our website and its content.

2.4 Data security

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, 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.

2.5 Plug-ins and tools

This page uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the consistent display of font styles. To ensure the GDPR-compliant use of Google Fonts, the Google fonts are hosted and integrated locally. Thus, in the course of the use of our website, no connection to Google servers is established and no user-specific data is transmitted to Google. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer. 

For more information on Google Web Fonts, please check up the Google privacy policy statement at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en, as well as https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active.

The usage of Google WebFonts is based on Art. 6 (1f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the uniform presentation of the typography on his website.

Our websites do not use social media plug-ins. Pictograms of a social media network have a simple link function. By clicking on the pictogram, you will be directed to the company page on the respective social media platform and leave the website of DANGELMAYER & SEEMANN GmbH. The social media platforms that can be reached via the pictograms provide the processing of your data under their own responsibility.

3. Notes for applicants

We process applicants’ data only for the application procedure and its administrative handling. The legal basis for this is Section 26/1 BDSG (new) (German Federal Data Protection Act, decision on the establishment of an employment relationship). We delete your data at the latest 6 months after the end of the application procedure.

We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (by e-mail or post). For data protection reasons, we have deliberately not included an application function via contact form on our website.

In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected as part of the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other legal provisions and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.

3.1 Scope and purpose of data processing

If you submit us an application via email or by (physical) mail, we will process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during interviews, etc.) insofar as this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Section 26 (1) BDSG (new) (German Federal Data Protection Act, decision on the establishment of an employment relationship), Art. 6 (1b) GDPR (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 (1a) GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons who are involved in processing your application.

If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems in accordance to Section 26/1 BDSG (new) (German Federal Data Protection Act, decision on the establishment of an employment relationship) and Art. 6 (1b).

3.2 Retention period for applicant data

If we are unable to provide you with a job offer immediately, if you reject a job offer, or if you withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have provided on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1f) GDPR) for up to 6 months from the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application). Subsequently, the data will be deleted and the physical application documents destroyed.

Retention serves in particular for purposes of proof in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the 6-month period has expired (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will not be deleted until the purpose for continued storage no longer applies.

A longer storage can also take place if you have given a corresponding consent (Art. 6 (1a) GDPR) or if legal storage obligations oppose the deletion.

3.3 Inclusion in the applicant pool

If we are unable to provide you with an immediate job offer, we may be able to include you in our applicant pool. In the event of inclusion, all documents and details from the application will be transferred to the applicant pool in order to contact you in the event of suitable vacancies.

Inclusion in the applicant pool takes place exclusively on the basis of your express consent (Art. 6 (1a) GDPR). The submission of the consent is voluntary and does not have any impact on the current application process.

The data subject may revoke his or her consent at any time. In this case, the data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted, unless there are legal reasons for retention. The data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted no later than two years after consent has been given.
