Separate Notes on Data Protection for Applicants

Bogner Gottschalk Heine GmbH, referred to in the following sections as "BGH-Consulting", looks forward to your visit to its job vacancies and your interest in submitting an application. The protection of your personal details is important to us because we want you to feel secure when visiting our job vacancies and during the subsequent application process. Below, we explain how we collect, process and use the personal data you submit in your application to BGH-Consulting.
When using the BGH-Consulting internet site, you will find basic information on data protection in the general data protection declaration in this document.

Collection, Processing and Use of Applicants' Data by BGH-Consulting for its Own Purposes

BGH-Consulting will collect, process and use the data you give solely for the application process. Please note that the job vacancies are operated by BGH-Consulting for its own purposes and also for the purposes of the companies contracted by BGH-Consulting.

Please note also that BGH-Consulting reserves the right to examine your suitability not only for the actual position you are applying for but for other positions as well. If we examine your suitability for another position and find you essentially suitable for it, we will contact you in order to continue this latter application process and arrange further steps with you in this process. We will not pass your sensitive personal data to third parties under any circumstances without your consent.

BGH-Consulting reserves the right to amend data in the system. Such amendments will be solely in order to correct spelling errors or update the contact data provided. Should you have any further alteration requests for your profile or your documents, we will update these further to your requests.

The Application Process

a) Entering Data
You can also apply directly for one of the jobs listed in the job vacancies section on our website by clicking on it. By selecting the link "Application Form", you will arrive at the data-entry form where you can enter your first and last name, your email address and other data of relevance for the application. You can supply your curriculum vitae and references etc. using the "Upload" function. We will not be able to see these data until you have sent in your application. Before sending in your application, you will first be required to accept our data protection rules; only then will you be able to send in your application (using the ""Send" button) or cancel the entire process (using the "Delete" button).

b) The Process
The data you send in will be used by the consultants/researchers at BGH-Consulting to examine your suitability for the position advertised. Based on the data obtained in the subsequent interview with you and the information from your curriculum vitae, we will prepare a candidate's profile. After receiving your consent, we will grant access to the candidate's profile (including attached appendices) for inspection to the person responsible for the position at our client's company. When the application process has been completed, this access will be restricted to the consultants/researchers again.

c) BGH-Consulting's Application Pool
After the regular application process has been completed and with your consent to our data protection rules, your application data – such as your applicant's profile, curriculum vitae and references – and your candidate's profile will remain in BGH-Consulting's application pool. Retention in our application pool is a prerequisite for enabling our consultants/researchers to check regularly whether your profile suits another vacancy. Where appropriate, they may request you to submit another application.

d) Speculative Applications
You can also submit speculative applications via our speculative applications site if none of the advertised positions fits your requirements. The process of entering your data and their further processing in the application process is similar to an application for an advertised position.

Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain func-tions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart) are stored pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1, letter f of DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. If other cookies (such as those used to analyze your surfing behavior) are also stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in "server log files". These are:

• Browser type and browser version
• Operating system used
• Referrer URL
• Host name of the accessing computer
• Time of the server request
• IP address

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.


Contact form

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 mak-ing 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 mandato-ry data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.


5. Social media

Twitter plugin

Functions of the Twitter service have been integrated into our website and app. These features are offered by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

When you use Twitter and the “Retweet” function, the websites you visit are connected to your Twitter account and made known to other users. In doing so, data will also be transferred to Twitter. We would like to point out that, as the provider of these pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or how it will be used by Twitter.

LinkedIn plugin

Our site uses functions from the LinkedIn network. The service is provided by LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Each time one of our pages containing LinkedIn features is accessed, your browser establishes a direct connection to the LinkedIn servers. LinkedIn is informed that you have visited our web pages from your IP address. If you use the LinkedIn “Recommend” button and are logged into your LinkedIn account, it is possible for LinkedIn to associate your visit to our website to your user account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of these pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or how it will be used by LinkedIn.

Our website uses features provided by the XING network. The provider is XING AG, Dammtorstraße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.

Each time one of our pages containing XING features is accessed, your browser establishes a direct connection to the XING servers. To the best of our knowledge, no personal data is stored in the process. In particular, no IP addresses are stored nor is usage behavior evaluated.

6. Newsletter

Newsletter data

If you would like to receive our newsletter, we require a valid email address as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive this newsletter. No additional data is collected or is only collected on a voluntary basis. We only use this data to send the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You can revoke consent to the storage of your data and email address as well as their use for sending the newsletter at any time, e.g. through the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.
