3. General Data Protection Information

In some cases, we use contract processors within the meaning of Art. 28 GDPR to process your personal data. Such service providers who are bound by our instructions are only used if they meet a high level of information security and thus also data protection standards.

Your personal data will not be processed for the purpose of automated decision-making (including profiling) in accordance with Art. 22 (1) GDPR.

Please note that if you do not provide us with your personal data, you will not be able to use all functions and services provided via the website or any of the tools we use. For the processing of your personal data, the basic rule is that we only process your data if this is required by law or contract or if you have given us your consent. In some cases we may process your personal data because we have a legitimate interest in doing so.

4. Encryption by TLS

We use the encryption technology “Transport Layer Security” or “TLS” for short on our website. This is a protocol that transmits data over an encrypted connection on the Internet. The encryption protects the data from unauthorized access by third parties and from manipulation or forgery. In addition, TLS allows authentication and verification of the identities of the recipient and sender.

5. Server Log Files

The provider of our website automatically processes data in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits when you access our website. This includes the following data:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Date and time of the server request
  • IP address
  • Referrer URL
  • data transferred

5.1. Purpose of Processing

The data is processed in order to be able to display the website to you and to ensure the security and stability of the technology systems used. It cannot be ruled out that the data will be processed in order to provide law enforcement authorities with the necessary information for law enforcement purposes in the event of a cyber attack or to assert our civil claims.

5.2. Legal Basis

We have a legitimate interest in data processing within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We legitimately have an interest in a secure and stable website and in asserting our civil claims and successful criminal prosecution.

5.3. Storage Duration

The data is stored in the log files of the IT system of the host of our website. The data will be deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been fulfilled or can no longer be fulfilled. The exact time of deletion is to be determined for each individual case. In any case, the storage will be terminated if civil law claims according to § 199 BGB have become statute-barred or criminal prosecution is no longer possible due to the statute of limitations according to §§ 78, 79 StGB.

6. General Contact

If you contact us, we will process the data you have provided. Depending on the means of communication used (e.g. e-mail or telephone), this relates to personal data such as your name and contact details.

6.1. Purpose of Processing

We process your personal data in order to be able to process your request, which you communicated to us when you contacted us.

6.2. Legal Basis

The processing can be based on different legal bases depending on the case. For example, Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR applies if your request relates to a contract concluded with us. In any case, we have a legitimate interest in processing your contact request within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

6.3. Storage Duration

The data will be deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been fulfilled or can no longer be fulfilled. The exact time of deletion is to be determined for each individual case.

7. Contact

We use the “HubSpot” service for the purposes described below. The provider is HubSpot Inc., a software company from the USA with a branch in Ireland, 2nd Floor 30 North Wall Quay, Dublin 1, Ireland. (hereinafter “HubSpot”).

Before we present the processing purposes, please note the following fact: It cannot be ruled out that personal data will be transmitted to the USA when using HubSpot. From the point of view of the European Union (“EU”), the USA does not offer an adequate level of protection for the processing of personal data in line with EU standards. According to the judgment of the European Court of Justice (“ECJ”) of July 16, 2020, Az. C-311/18 (also known as “Schrems II”), the previously applicable EU-US Privacy Shield cannot guarantee an adequate level of protection. For example, there is a risk that your personal data will be disclosed to US intelligence services due to the so-called CLOUD Act (“Clarifying Overseas Use of Data Act”). Consider this fact before you agree to the use of Google cookies and thus trigger the transfer of your personal data to the USA. To protect your personal data, the security of any transmission to the USA is secured by so-called standard contractual clauses, which ensure that the processing of personal data is subject to a level of data protection comparable to that in the EU.

11.3. Type of Data Processing

If we receive application documents in paper form, we digitize them and save them then file them in a digital application file. The paper documents will be returned to our relief. If we receive the application documents by e-mail, we also store them in a digital application file. This also applies if you send us the application documents via another digital channel (e.g. via LinkedIn). If the application documents are received directly via the form on the website, the application ends up in our ticket system and is processed there. This means that the persons responsible at thingsTHINKING, i.e. this means first and foremost our HR department and the department responsible for the specific application, check the application. If we are impressed by an application, we will contact you using the contact details you have provided.

If there is no suitable position available, we offer to include you in our talent pool. If you give us your consent, we will move the applicant file to our talent pool and get back to you as soon as a suitable position becomes available.

The application process begins upon your request, which is why Art. 6 (1) lit. b, Art. 88 GDPR in conjunction with § 26 BDSG is the legal basis. According to this provision, processing is permissible if it is necessary in connection with the decision to establish an employment relationship. In addition, other laws may apply to processing, such as the General Equal Treatment Act. In the case of the processing of special categories of personal data within the meaning of Art. 9 GDPR, further occupational safety laws must be observed, so the legal basis in such cases is Art. 9 (2) lit. b, Art. 88 GDPR in conjunction with § 26 (3) BDSG. Special personal data can also be processed if you have previously consented to this, Art. 9 (2) lit. b, Art. 88 GDPR in conjunction with § 26 (2), (3) BDSG applies.

If you agree to participate in an online meeting, your personal data will be processed in the USA, among other places. From the point of view of the European Union (“EU”), the USA does not offer an adequate level of protection for the processing of personal data in line with EU standards. According to the judgment of the European Court of Justice (“ECJ”) of July 16, 2020, Az. C-312/18 (also known as “Schrems II”), the previously applicable EU-US Privacy Shield cannot guarantee an adequate level of protection. For example, there is a risk that your personal data will be disclosed to US intelligence services due to the so-called CLOUD Act (“Clarifying Overseas Use of Data Act”). Consider this fact before you agree to participate in the online meeting and thus trigger the transfer of your personal data to the USA.
