3. Data Collection on our Website
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.
Inquiry per Email, Telephone or Telefax
If you contact us via email, telephone or telefax, your inquiry including all personal data (name, request) are stored and processed for the purpose of processing your request. We do not transmit these data to third persons and use these data not without your approval for other purposes than of the treatment of your inquiry.
Your data is processed based on article 6 (1) (b) DSGVO if your request relates to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases the processing of data is based on your voluntary agreement (article 6 (1) (a) DSGVO) and/or our justified interests (article 6 (1) (f) DSGVO), as we have a justified interest in the effective processing of requests submitted to us.
The data submitted by you will remain with us as long as you request the deletion, you revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose itself is no longer pursued (e.g. after finalization of processing of your request). Mandatory statutory regulations – in particular legal storage periods – remain unaffected.
Data Processing for Applications
You can send us applications for jobs in our advisory firm via our website and the contact details provided there. If you submit personal data to us in this manner or in any other way, we process your data to assess, process and reply to your application and, if necessary, to prepare your employment.
The legal basis for processing data is Article 6 para. 2 DSGVO, § 26 para. 1 BDSG (new) which permits the processing of data for the decision on the establishment, for the establishment and the implementation of employment relationships.
SSL or TLS Encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser’s address line when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon is displayed in your browser’s address bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Statutory retention periods are used as the criteria for how long our company archives personal information. After the expiration of the legal retention period, such data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required to fulfil an agreement or initiate a contract. If the purpose for which data was saved is eliminated, or if the archiving term specified by European regulators and issuing bodies expires, personal information is routinely blocked or deleted according to statutory regulations.
