We use online conference tools, among other things, for communication with our customers. The tools we use are listed in detail below. If you communicate with us by video or audio conference using the Internet, your personal data will be collected and processed by the provider of the respective conference tool and by us. The conferencing tools collect all information that you provide/access to use the tools (email address and/or your phone number). Furthermore, the conference tools process the duration of the conference, start and end (time) of participation in the conference, number of participants and other “context information” related to the communication process (metadata).
Furthermore, the provider of the tool processes all the technical data required for the processing of the online communication. This includes, in particular, IP addresses, MAC addresses, device IDs, device type, operating system type and version, client version, camera type, microphone or loudspeaker and the type of connection.
Should content be exchanged, uploaded or otherwise made available within the tool, it is also stored on the servers of the tool provider. Such content includes, but is not limited to, cloud recordings, chat/ instant messages, voicemail uploaded photos and videos, files, whiteboards and other information shared while using the service.
Please note that we do not have complete influence on the data processing procedures of the tools used. Our possibilities are largely determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider. Further information on data processing by the conference tools can be found in the data protection declarations of the tools used, and which we have listed below this text.
Purpose and legal bases
The conference tools are used to communicate with prospective or existing contractual partners or to offer certain services to our customers (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR). Furthermore, the use of the tools serves to generally simplify and accelerate communication with us or our company (legitimate interest in the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). Insofar as consent has been requested, the tools in question will be used on the basis of this consent; the consent may be revoked at any time with effect from that date.
Duration of storage
Data collected directly by us via the video and conference tools will be deleted from our systems immediately after you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage, or the reason for storing the data no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your end device until you delete them. Mandatory legal retention periods remain unaffected.
We have no influence on the duration of storage of your data that is stored by the operators of the conference tools for their own purposes. For details, please contact directly the operators of the conference tools.
Conference tools used
We employ the following conference tools:
Execution of a contract data processing agreement
We have entered into a contract data processing agreement with the provider of Microsoft Teams and implement the strict provisions of the German data protection agencies to the fullest when using Microsoft Teams.
Purpose of the processing
We use the "Zoom" tool to conduct online conferences. "Zoom" is a service provided by Zoom Video Communications, Inc.
When using "Zoom", different types of data are processed. The scope of the data also depends on the information you provide before or during participation in an online conference.
The following personal data are processed:
User details: first name, last name, telephone (optional), e-mail address, password (if "Single-Sign-On" is not used), profile picture (optional), department (optional).
Meeting metadata: Subject, Description (optional), Attendee IP addresses, Device/Hardware information.
For recordings (optional): MP4 file of all video, audio and presentation recordings, M4A file of all audio recordings, text file of online meeting chat.
When dialing in by phone: information on incoming and outgoing phone number, country name, start and end time. If necessary, further connection data such as the IP address of the device can be saved.
Text, audio and video data: You may be able to use the chat, question or survey functions in an "online meeting". To this extent, the text entries you make are processed in order to display and, if necessary, log them in an online conference. In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your terminal device and from any video camera on the terminal device are processed for the duration of the meeting. You can turn off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time using the "Zoom" applications.
In order to participate in an online conference or enter the "meeting room", you must at least provide information about your name.
Scope of processing
We use "Zoom" to conduct online conferences. If we want to record online conferences, we will inform you transparently in advance and - if necessary - ask for your consent. The fact of the recording will also be displayed in the "Zoom" app.
If it is necessary for the purpose of recording the results of an online conference, we will log the chat contents.
For recording and follow-up purposes, we may also process questions asked by conference participants.
If you are registered as a user at "Zoom", reports on online conferences (meeting metadata, telephone dial-in data, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) can be stored for up to one month at "Zoom".
Automated decision-making within the meaning of Article 22 GDPR is not used.
Receiver / passing on of data
Personal data processed in connection with participation in online conferences are generally not passed on to third parties, unless they are specifically intended to be passed on. Please note that content from online conferences as well as from personal meetings often serves the purpose of communicating information with customers, interested parties or third parties and is therefore intended to be passed on.
Other recipients: The provider of "Zoom" necessarily obtains knowledge of the above-mentioned data, insofar as this is provided for in our contract processing agreement with "Zoom".
Data processing outside the European Union
"Zoom" is a service provided by a provider from the USA. Processing of personal data therefore also takes place in a third country. We have concluded an order processing contract with the provider of "Zoom" which meets the requirements of Article 28 GDPR.
An adequate level of data protection is guaranteed on the one hand by the "Privacy Shield" certification of Zoom Video Communications, Inc. but also by the conclusion of the so-called EU standard contract clauses.
You have the right to:
If your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6(1)(1)(f) of the GDPR, you have the right under Article 21 of the GDPR to object to the processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation or to object to direct marketing. In the latter case, you have a general right to object that will be implemented by us without having to state a specific situation.
If you would like to make use of your right to withdraw consent or right to object, simply send an email to email@example.com.
When you visit our website, we use secure socket layer security technology in conjunction with the highest level of encryption that your browser supports. Generally this is 256 bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256 bit encryption, we will use 128 bitv3 technology instead. You will know if an individual page of our website has been transferred encrypted by a key or lock symbol appearing in your browser's address bar.
As well as this, we use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or deliberate manipulation, full or partial loss, destruction, and against unauthorised access by third parties. We are continuously improving our security measures in line with technological advancement.
We offer you the possibility to apply for a job with us via online application form using our software HRworks (or via email / postal mail). In the following we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data is in accordance with the applicable data protection law and all other legal regulations and that your data will be treated strictly confidential.
Scope and purpose of the collection of data
If you submit a job application to us, we will process any affiliated personal data (e.g. contact and communications data, application documents, notes taken during job interviews, etc.), if they are required to make a decision concerning the establishment or an employment relationship. The legal grounds for the aforementioned are § 26 New GDPR according to German Law (Negotiation of an Employment Relationship), Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR (General Contract Negotiations) and – provided you have given us your consent – Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. You may revoke any consent given at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be shared with individuals who are involved in the processing of your job application.
If your job application should result in your recruitment, the data you have submitted will be archived on the grounds of § 26 New GDPR and Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship in our data processing system.
Data Archiving Period
If we are unable to make you a job offer or you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have submitted on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) for up to 6 months from the end of the application procedure (rejection or withdrawal of the application). Afterwards the data will be deleted, and the physical application documents will be destroyed. The storage serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the expiry of the 6-month period (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), deletion will only take place when the purpose for further storage no longer applies.
Longer storage may also take place if you have given your agreement (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR) or if statutory data retention requirements preclude the deletion.
Data collection in video interviews
When conducting digital job interviews, we use the communication tool Microsoft Teams. Information on the data collection of these tools can be found under 9. Audio and Video Conferences in the subsection Microsoft Teams.
Admission to the applicant pool
If we do not make you a job offer, you may be able to join our applicant pool. In case of admission, all documents and information from the application will be transferred to the applicant pool in order to contact you in case of suitable vacancies.
Admission to the applicant pool is based exclusively on your express agreement (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). The submission agreement is voluntary and has no relation to the ongoing application procedure. The affected person can revoke his agreement at any time. In this case, the data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted, provided there are no legal reasons for storage.
The data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted no later than two years after consent has been granted.
Place of data processing
The processing of your data takes place in the Federal Republic of Germany and in a member state of the European Union (EU). HRworks and its subcontractor AWS have concluded a contract (Data Processing Addendum), which ensures that the data processing is carried out in an authorized manner.
Right of information and revocation
By sending your application you agree to the storage of your personal data. You can revoke this consent at any time and object to the storage of your data.
Upon request, we will inform you in accordance with the applicable law which of your personal data is stored by us. In addition, you have the right to have incorrect data corrected, to block and delete your personal data, provided that this does not conflict with any legal obligation to retain data. You can find our contact details here.
