Processing of Personal Data

The use of our website is normally possible without providing personal information. When personal data (for example name, address, or e-mail address) is compiled on our sites it always occurs, where possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent. Please note that data transfers over the Internet (for example, when communicating via e-mail) may result in security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to totally protect data from access by third parties. If you contact us through a contact address provided on this website, you agree that we may process your personal data in order to contact you and respond to your request.

We do not disclose or transfer your personal data to third parties. This does not apply to data transfers following a request by any authorized state agencies or transfers to law enforcement authorities in the event of an abuse of the services offered.

Unsolicited Applications via Contact Details on Our Website

The processing of your data for another purpose (i.e. searching for, selecting and recruiting personnel) will only take place after we include you in our database. If you are not included in our database, your contact information will be deleted from our system. We will inform you about this via e-mail at the time.

Our Newsletter

When registering for our newsletter, you provide us with your email address and other optional information. We use this data solely for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. We retain the data that you disclose in your newsletter application until you cancel your subscription. You can unsubscribe at any time via the link in the newsletter, or by sending us a message expressing your desire to unsubscribe. By unsubscribing, you revoke your permission for us to use your email address.

When we receive your email address in connection with an executive search request by your company or with the sale of a product or service, we use it exclusively for direct advertising through our newsletter for products or services that we sell that are similar to the ones you have already requested, provided that you have not objected to having your email used in this way. You may object to the use of your email address at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs in accordance with the standard rates. You can object to this (and thus cancel your subscription to our newsletter) by sending us an email (see our Legal Notice for the address).

Integrated Services

It is important for us to develop and optimize our websites as much as possible, so as to make them attractive for our visitors. To provide additional functions, we integrate the following external services:

Google Maps

We incorporate content from Google Maps on our websites to help you find the exact location of our business. This automatically establishes a connection from your browser to the Google Maps server, which also transmits your IP address. If you are logged in to Google with an existing user account while visiting our websites, Google may also be able to assign the visit of our websites to your user behaviour. We have no influence on this procedure and do not receive any information from Google about the content transmitted.

The provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

LinkedIn
Access to LinkedIn (LinkedIn, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA) can be found on our website via the icon featuring the letters “in” against a blue background. When you double-click on the “in” icon, a connection with the LinkedIn server is established, and the LinkedIn plugin is loaded on the website. The content of the “in” icon is sent by LinkedIn directly to your browser, which integrates it into the webpage. It is possible that this can cause your IP address to be transmitted to LinkedIn in the USA. For more detailed information about the scope, nature and purpose of LinkedIn’s collection of data and its additional processing and use, and on the rights you have and settings you can use to protect your privacy, please refer to LinkedIn’s Privacy Policy regarding the “in” icon (http://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy). If you are a LinkedIn member and don’t want LinkedIn to collect data about you and connect it to your LinkedIn member data when the “in” icon is activated on our website, you must log out of LinkedIn before visiting our website.

XING

Access to XING (XING AG, Dammtorstrasse 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany) can be found on our website via the “X” or “XING” icon against a green background. When you double-click on our “XING” icon, a connection with the XING server is established, and the XING share button functions (especially the calculation/display of the counter reading) are loaded on the respective website. XING does not save any of your personal data when you access this website. What’s more, XING does not save any IP addresses either. There is no evaluation of your usage behaviour through cookies in connection with the XING Share Button. The latest data protection information regarding the XING Share Button and supplementary information can be found at https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection.

As operators of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies in order to provide our services in a technically flawless and smooth manner. If other cookies are stored (e.g., for analysis processes), they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Server Log Files

We automatically collect and save information in log files that are automatically sent to us by your browser. These are browser type and version, operating system, referring URL, and the time of the server request. This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data will not be merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently examine this data if we become aware of specific indications of illegal use.

E-Mail Communication

We cannot guarantee complete data security when communicating by e-mail, so we recommend that you send us any highly confidential information by post.

Marketing E-Mails

The use of the contact information provided as part of the obligatory legal notice for the sending of unsolicited marketing and other information materials is not permitted. The website operators expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of receiving unsolicited marketing information, for example spam e-mails.
