1. An overview of data pro­tec­tion
Gen­er­al infor­ma­tion
The fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion will pro­vide you with an easy to nav­i­gate overview of what will hap­pen with your per­son­al data when you vis­it this web­site. The term „per­son­al data“ com­pris­es all data that can be used to per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fy you. For detailed infor­ma­tion about the sub­ject mat­ter of data pro­tec­tion, please con­sult our Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion, which we have includ­ed beneath this copy.

 

Data record­ing on this web­site
Who is the respon­si­ble par­ty for the record­ing of data on this web­site (i.e. the „con­troller“)?
The data on this web­site is processed by the oper­a­tor of the web­site, whose con­tact infor­ma­tion is avail­able under sec­tion „Infor­ma­tion Required by Law“ on this web­site.

How do we record your data?
We col­lect your data as a result of your shar­ing of your data with us. This may, for instance be infor­ma­tion you enter into our con­tact form.
Our IT sys­tems auto­mat­i­cal­ly record oth­er data when you vis­it our web­site. This data com­pris­es pri­mar­i­ly tech­ni­cal infor­ma­tion (e.g. web brows­er, oper­at­ing sys­tem or time the site was accessed). This infor­ma­tion is record­ed auto­mat­i­cal­ly when you access this web­site.

What are the pur­pos­es we use your data for?
A por­tion of the infor­ma­tion is gen­er­at­ed to guar­an­tee the error free pro­vi­sion of the web­site. Oth­er data may be used to analyse your user pat­terns.

What rights do you have as far as your infor­ma­tion is con­cerned?
You have the right to receive infor­ma­tion about the source, recip­i­ents and pur­pos­es of your archived per­son­al data at any time with­out hav­ing to pay a fee for such dis­clo­sures. You also have the right to demand that your data are rec­ti­fied or erad­i­cat­ed. Please do not hes­i­tate to con­tact us at any time under the address dis­closed in sec­tion „Infor­ma­tion Required by Law“ on this web­site if you have ques­tions about this or any oth­er data pro­tec­tion relat­ed issues. You also have the right to log a com­plaint with the com­pe­tent super­vis­ing agency.

More­over, under cer­tain cir­cum­stances, you have the right to demand the restric­tion of the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data. For details, please con­sult the Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion under sec­tion „Right to Restric­tion of Data Pro­cess­ing.“

Analy­sis tools and tools pro­vid­ed by third par­ties
There is a pos­si­bil­i­ty that your brows­ing pat­terns will be sta­tis­ti­cal­ly analysed when your vis­it this web­site. Such analy­ses are per­formed pri­mar­i­ly with cook­ies and with what we refer to as analy­sis pro­grammes. As a rule, the analy­ses of your brows­ing pat­terns are con­duct­ed anony­mous­ly; i.e. the brows­ing pat­terns can­not be traced back to you.
You have the option to object to such analy­ses or you can pre­vent their per­for­mance by not using cer­tain tools. For detailed infor­ma­tion about the tools and about your options to object, please con­sult our Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion below.

2. Host­ing

Exter­nal Host­ing
This web­site is host­ed by an exter­nal ser­vice provider (host). Per­son­al data col­lect­ed on this web­site are stored on the servers of the host. These may include, but are not lim­it­ed to, IP address­es, con­tact requests, meta­da­ta and com­mu­ni­ca­tions, con­tract infor­ma­tion, con­tact infor­ma­tion, names, web page access, and oth­er data gen­er­at­ed through a web site.

The host is used for the pur­pose of ful­fill­ing the con­tract with our poten­tial and exist­ing cus­tomers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO) and in the inter­est of secure, fast and effi­cient pro­vi­sion of our online ser­vices by a pro­fes­sion­al provider (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO).

Our host will only process your data to the extent nec­es­sary to ful­fil its per­for­mance oblig­a­tions and to fol­low our instruc­tions with respect to such data.

3. Gen­er­al infor­ma­tion and manda­to­ry infor­ma­tion

Data pro­tec­tion
The oper­a­tors of this web­site and its pages take the pro­tec­tion of your per­son­al data very seri­ous­ly. Hence, we han­dle your per­son­al data as con­fi­den­tial infor­ma­tion and in com­pli­ance with the statu­to­ry data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions and this Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion.

When­ev­er you use this web­site, a vari­ety of per­son­al infor­ma­tion will be col­lect­ed. Per­son­al data com­pris­es data that can be used to per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fy you. This Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion explains which data we col­lect as well as the pur­pos­es we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which pur­pose the infor­ma­tion is col­lect­ed.
We here­with advise you that the trans­mis­sion of data via the Inter­net (i.e. through e‑mail com­mu­ni­ca­tions) may be prone to secu­ri­ty gaps. It is not pos­si­ble to com­plete­ly pro­tect data against third par­ty access.

Infor­ma­tion about the respon­si­ble par­ty (referred to as the „con­troller“ in the GDPR)
The data pro­cess­ing con­troller on this web­site is:

Eco­nom­ic Qual­i­ty Con­sult­ing GmbH
Weißen­burgstr. 59
97082 Würzburg

Geschäftsführer: Mike Helm­chen

Phone: +49 (0) 176 / 34183410 E‑mail: info@eqc-gmbh.com

The con­troller is the nat­ur­al per­son or legal enti­ty that sin­gle-hand­ed­ly or joint­ly with oth­ers makes deci­sions as to the pur­pos­es of and resources for the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al data (e.g. names, e‑mail address­es, etc.).

Revo­ca­tion of your con­sent to the pro­cess­ing of data
A wide range of data pro­cess­ing trans­ac­tions are pos­si­ble only sub­ject to your express con­sent. You can also revoke at any time any con­sent you have already giv­en us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an infor­mal noti­fi­ca­tion via e‑mail. This shall be with­out prej­u­dice to the law­ful­ness of any data col­lec­tion that occurred pri­or to your revo­ca­tion.

Right to object to the col­lec­tion of data in spe­cial cas­es; right to object to direct adver­tis­ing (Art. 21 GDPR).

In the event that data are processed on the basis of art. 6 sect. 1 lit. e or f gdpr, you have the right to at any time object to the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data based on grounds aris­ing from your unique sit­u­a­tion. This also applies to any pro­fil­ing based on these pro­vi­sions. To deter­mine the legal basis, on which any pro­cess­ing of data is based, please con­sult this data pro­tec­tion dec­la­ra­tion. If you log an objec­tion, we will no longer process your affect­ed per­son­al data, unless we are in a posi­tion to present com­pelling pro­tec­tion wor­thy grounds for the pro­cess­ing of your data, that out­weigh your inter­ests, rights and free­doms or if the pur­pose of the pro­cess­ing is the claim­ing, exer­cis­ing or defence of legal enti­tle­ments (objec­tion pur­suant to art. 21 sect. 1 gdpr).

If your per­son­al data is being processed in order to engage in direct adver­tis­ing, you have the right to at any time object to the pro­cess­ing of your affect­ed per­son­al data for the pur­pos­es of such adver­tis­ing. This also applies to pro­fil­ing to the extent that it is affil­i­at­ed with such direct adver­tis­ing. If you object, your per­son­al data will sub­se­quent­ly no longer be used for direct adver­tis­ing pur­pos­es (objec­tion pur­suant to art. 21 sect. 2 gdpr).

Right to log a com­plaint with the com­pe­tent super­vi­so­ry agency
In the event of vio­la­tions of the GDPR, data sub­jects are enti­tled to log a com­plaint with a super­vi­so­ry agency, in par­tic­u­lar in the mem­ber state where they usu­al­ly main­tain their domi­cile, place of work or at the place where the alleged vio­la­tion occurred. The right to log a com­plaint is in effect regard­less of any oth­er admin­is­tra­tive or court pro­ceed­ings avail­able as legal recours­es.

Right to data porta­bil­i­ty
You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we auto­mat­i­cal­ly process on the basis of your con­sent or in order to ful­fil a con­tract be hand­ed over to you or a third par­ty in a com­mon­ly used, machine read­able for­mat. If you should demand the direct trans­fer of the data to anoth­er con­troller, this will be done only if it is tech­ni­cal­ly fea­si­ble.

SSL and/or TLS encryp­tion
For secu­ri­ty rea­sons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­sion of con­fi­den­tial con­tent, such as pur­chase orders or inquiries you sub­mit to us as the web­site oper­a­tor, this web­site uses either an SSL or a TLS encryp­tion pro­gramme. You can recog­nise an encrypt­ed con­nec­tion by check­ing whether the address line of the brows­er switch­es from „http://“ to „https://“ and also by the appear­ance of the lock icon in the brows­er line.
If the SSL or TLS encryp­tion is acti­vat­ed, data you trans­mit to us can­not be read by third par­ties.

Infor­ma­tion about, rec­ti­fi­ca­tion and erad­i­ca­tion of data
With­in the scope of the applic­a­ble statu­to­ry pro­vi­sions, you have the right to at any time demand infor­ma­tion about your archived per­son­al data, their source and recip­i­ents as well as the pur­pose of the pro­cess­ing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rec­ti­fied or erad­i­cat­ed. If you have ques­tions about this sub­ject mat­ter or any oth­er ques­tions about per­son­al data, please do not hes­i­tate to con­tact us at any time at the address pro­vid­ed in sec­tion „Infor­ma­tion Required by Law.“

Right to demand pro­cess­ing restric­tions
You have the right to demand the impo­si­tion of restric­tions as far as the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data is con­cerned. To do so, you may con­tact us at any time at the address pro­vid­ed in sec­tion „Infor­ma­tion Required by Law.“ The right to demand restric­tion of pro­cess­ing applies in the fol­low­ing cas­es:

In the event that you should dis­pute the cor­rect­ness of your data archived by us, we will usu­al­ly need some time to ver­i­fy this claim. Dur­ing the time that this inves­ti­ga­tion is ongo­ing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data.

If the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data was/is con­duct­ed in an unlaw­ful man­ner, you have the option to demand the restric­tion of the pro­cess­ing of your data in lieu of demand­ing the erad­i­ca­tion of this data.
If we do not need your per­son­al data any longer and you need it to exer­cise, defend or claim legal enti­tle­ments, you have the right to demand the restric­tion of the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data instead of its erad­i­ca­tion.
If you have raised an objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each oth­er. As long as it has not been deter­mined whose inter­ests pre­vail, you have the right to demand a restric­tion of the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data.

If you have restrict­ed the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data, these data – with the excep­tion of their archiv­ing – may be processed only sub­ject to your con­sent or to claim, exer­cise or defend legal enti­tle­ments or to
pro­tect the rights of oth­er nat­ur­al per­sons or legal enti­ties or for impor­tant pub­lic inter­est rea­sons cit­ed by the Euro­pean Union or a mem­ber state of the EU.

Rejec­tion of unso­licit­ed e‑mails
We here­with object to the use of con­tact infor­ma­tion pub­lished in con­junc­tion with the manda­to­ry infor­ma­tion to be pro­vid­ed in sec­tion „Infor­ma­tion Required by Law“ to send us pro­mo­tion­al and infor­ma­tion mate­r­i­al that we have not express­ly request­ed. The oper­a­tors of this web­site and its pages reserve the express right to take legal action in the event of the unso­licit­ed send­ing of pro­mo­tion­al infor­ma­tion, for instance via SPAM mes­sages.

4. Record­ing of data on this web­site

Cook­ies
In some instances, our web­site and its pages use so-called cook­ies. Cook­ies do not cause any dam­age to your com­put­er and do not con­tain virus­es. The pur­pose of cook­ies is to make our web­site more user friend­ly, effec­tive and more secure. Cook­ies are small text files that are placed on your com­put­er and stored by your brows­er.

Most of the cook­ies we use are so-called „ses­sion cook­ies.“ They are auto­mat­i­cal­ly delet­ed after your leave our site. Oth­er cook­ies will remain archived on your device until you delete them. These cook­ies enable us to recog­nise your brows­er the next time you vis­it our web­site.

You can adjust the set­tings of your brows­er to make sure that you are noti­fied every time cook­ies are placed and to enable you to accept cook­ies only in spe­cif­ic cas­es or to exclude the accep­tance of cook­ies for spe­cif­ic sit­u­a­tions or in gen­er­al and to acti­vate the auto­mat­ic dele­tion of cook­ies when you close your brows­er. If you deac­ti­vate cook­ies, the func­tions of this web­site may be lim­it­ed.

Cook­ies that are required for the per­for­mance of the elec­tron­ic com­mu­ni­ca­tions trans­ac­tion or to pro­vide cer­tain func­tions you want to use (e.g. the shop­ping cart func­tion), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site oper­a­tor has a legit­i­mate inter­est in stor­ing cook­ies to ensure the tech­ni­cal­ly error free and opti­mised pro­vi­sion of the operator’s ser­vices. If a cor­re­spond­ing agree­ment has been request­ed (e.g. an agree­ment to the stor­age of cook­ies), the pro­cess­ing takes place exclu­sive­ly on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agree­ment can be revoked at any time.

If oth­er cook­ies (e.g. cook­ies for the analy­sis of your brows­ing pat­terns) should be stored, they are addressed sep­a­rate­ly in this Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion.

Serv­er log files
The provider of this web­site and its pages auto­mat­i­cal­ly col­lects and stores infor­ma­tion in so-called serv­er log files, which your brows­er com­mu­ni­cates to us auto­mat­i­cal­ly. The infor­ma­tion com­pris­es:

The type and ver­sion of brows­er used The used oper­at­ing sys­tem
Refer­rer URL
The host­name of the access­ing com­put­er The time of the serv­er inquiry

The IP address
This data is not merged with oth­er data sources.
This data is record­ed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The oper­a­tor of the web­site has a legit­i­mate inter­est in the tech­ni­cal­ly error free depic­tion and the opti­miza­tion of the operator’s web­site. In order to achieve this, serv­er log files must be record­ed.

Con­tact form
If you sub­mit inquiries to us via our con­tact form, the infor­ma­tion pro­vid­ed in the con­tact form as well as any con­tact infor­ma­tion pro­vid­ed there­in will be stored by us in order to han­dle your inquiry and in the event that we have fur­ther ques­tions. We will not share this infor­ma­tion with­out your con­sent.
The pro­cess­ing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is relat­ed to the exe­cu­tion of a con­tract or if it is nec­es­sary to car­ry out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­sures. In all oth­er cas­es the pro­cess­ing is based on our legit­i­mate inter­est in the effec­tive pro­cess­ing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) or on your agree­ment (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) if this has been request­ed.
The infor­ma­tion you have entered into the con­tact form shall remain with us until you ask us to erad­i­cate the data, revoke your con­sent to the archiv­ing of data or if the pur­pose for which the infor­ma­tion is being archived no longer exists (e.g. after we have con­clud­ed our response to your inquiry). This shall be with­out prej­u­dice to any manda­to­ry legal pro­vi­sions – in par­tic­u­lar reten­tion peri­ods.

Request by e‑mail, tele­phone or fax
If you con­tact us by e‑mail, tele­phone or fax, your request, includ­ing all result­ing per­son­al data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the pur­pose of pro­cess­ing your request. We do not pass these data on with­out your con­sent.

The pro­cess­ing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is relat­ed to the exe­cu­tion of a con­tract or if it is nec­es­sary to car­ry out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­sures. In all oth­er cas­es, the pro­cess­ing is based on your con­sent (Arti­cle 6 (1) a GDPR) and/or on our legit­i­mate inter­ests (Arti­cle 6 (1) (f) GDPR), since we have a legit­i­mate inter­est in the effec­tive pro­cess­ing of requests addressed to us.
The data sent by you to us via con­tact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your con­sent to the stor­age or the pur­pose for the data stor­age laps­es (e.g. after com­ple­tion of your request). Manda­to­ry statu­to­ry pro­vi­sions — in par­tic­u­lar statu­to­ry reten­tion peri­ods — remain unaf­fect­ed.

This web­site uses func­tions of the web analy­sis ser­vice Google Ana­lyt­ics. The provider of this ser­vice is Google Ire­land Lim­it­ed („Google“), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dublin 4, Ire­land.
Google Ana­lyt­ics uses so-called cook­ies. Cook­ies are text files, which are stored on your com­put­er and that enable an analy­sis of the use of the web­site by users. The infor­ma­tion gen­er­at­ed by cook­ies on your use of this web­site is usu­al­ly trans­ferred to a Google serv­er in the Unit­ed States, where it is stored.

The stor­age of Google Ana­lyt­ics cook­ies and the uti­liza­tion of this analy­sis tool are based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The oper­a­tor of this web­site has a legit­i­mate inter­est in the analy­sis of user pat­terns to opti­mize both, the ser­vices offered online and the operator’s adver­tis­ing activ­i­ties. If a cor­re­spond­ing agree­ment has been request­ed (e.g. an agree­ment to the stor­age of cook­ies), the pro­cess­ing takes place exclu­sive­ly on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agree­ment can be revoked at any time.

Brows­er plug-in
You do have the option to pre­vent the archiv­ing of cook­ies by mak­ing per­ti­nent changes to the set­tings of your brows­er soft­ware. How­ev­er, we have to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all of the func­tions of this web­site to their fullest extent. More­over, you have the option pre­vent the record­ing of the data gen­er­at­ed by the cook­ie and affil­i­at­ed with your use of the web­site (includ­ing your IP address) by Google as well as the pro­cess­ing of this data by Google by down­load­ing and installing the brows­er plug-in avail­able under the fol­low­ing link:

https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

Archiv­ing peri­od
Data on the user or inci­dent lev­el stored by Google linked to cook­ies, user IDs or adver­tis­ing IDs (e.g. Dou­bleClick cook­ies, Android adver­tis­ing ID) will be anonymized or delet­ed after 14 month. For details please click the fol­low­ing link:

https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=en

Google Ana­lyt­ics Remar­ket­ing
This web­site uses the func­tions of Google Ana­lyt­ics Remar­ket­ing in com­bi­na­tion with the func­tions of Google Ads and Google Dou­bleClick, which work on all devices. The provider of these solu­tions is Google Ire­land Lim­it­ed („Google“), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dublin 4, Ire­land.

This func­tion makes it pos­si­ble to con­nect the adver­tis­ing tar­get groups gen­er­at­ed with Google Ana­lyt­ics Remar­ket­ing with the func­tions of Google Ads and Google Dou­bleClick, which work on all devices. This makes it pos­si­ble to dis­play inter­est-based cus­tomized adver­tis­ing mes­sages, depend­ing on your pri­or usage and brows­ing pat­terns on a device (e.g. cell phone) in a man­ner tai­lored to you as well as on any of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

If you have giv­en us per­ti­nent con­sent, Google will con­nect your web and app brows­er pro­gres­sions with your Google account for this pur­pose. As a result, it is pos­si­ble to dis­play the same per­son­al­ized adver­tis­ing mes­sages on every device you log into with your Google account.

To sup­port this func­tion, Google Ana­lyt­ics records Google authen­ti­cat­ed IDs of users that are tem­porar­i­ly con­nect­ed with our Google Ana­lyt­ics data to define and com­pile the tar­get groups for the ads to be dis­played on all devices.

You have the option to per­ma­nent­ly object to remarketing/targeting across all devices by deac­ti­vat­ing per­son­al­ized adver­tis­ing. To do this, please fol­low this link:
https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

The con­sol­i­da­tion of the record­ed data in your Google account shall occur exclu­sive­ly based on your con­sent, which you may give to Google and also revoke there (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). Data record­ing process­es that are not con­sol­i­dat­ed in your Google account (for instance because you do not have a Google account or have object­ed to the con­sol­i­da­tion of data), the record­ing of data is based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legit­i­mate inter­est aris­es from the fact that the oper­a­tor of the web­site has a legit­i­mate inter­est in the anonymized analy­sis of web­site vis­i­tor for adver­tis­ing pur­pos­es.

For fur­ther infor­ma­tion and the per­ti­nent data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions, please con­sult the Data Pri­va­cy Poli­cies of Google at:
https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=en.

7. Plug-ins and Tools

Google Web Fonts
To ensure that fonts used on this web­site are uni­form, this web­site uses so-called Web Fonts pro­vid­ed by Google. When you access a page on our web­site, your brows­er will load the required web fonts into your brows­er cache to cor­rect­ly dis­play text and fonts.
To do this, the brows­er you use will have to estab­lish a con­nec­tion with Google’s servers. As a result, Google will learn that your IP address was used to access this web­site. The use of Google Web Fonts is based on our inter­est in pre­sent­ing our online con­tent in a uni­form and appeal­ing way. Accord­ing to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, this is a legit­i­mate inter­est.
If your brows­er should not sup­port Web Fonts, a stan­dard font installed on your com­put­er will be used.

Job Appli­ca­tions
We offer web­site vis­i­tors the oppor­tu­ni­ty to sub­mit job appli­ca­tions to us (e.g. via e‑mail, via postal ser­vices on by sub­mit­ting the online job appli­ca­tion form). Below, we will brief you on the scope, pur­pose and use of the per­son­al data col­lect­ed from you in con­junc­tion with the appli­ca­tion process. We assure you that the col­lec­tion, pro­cess­ing and use of your data will occur in com­pli­ance with the applic­a­ble data pri­va­cy rights and all oth­er statu­to­ry pro­vi­sions and that your data will always be treat­ed as 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 DSGVO) 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.
