This means we place great value on the protection of your individual privacy. Below you will have the chance to learn how we handle your personal data and your respective rights.

It applies to the website visit. It does not apply to offers from third parties to you because you have accessed our website. We are therefore not responsible for the processing of your personal data within the context of such third party offer.

  2. Operating system;
  3. Type of browser;

Such data shall only be analyzed to ensure the good operation of the website. We make no evaluations or profiling based on this data.

The web agency acts as a processor for us in respect of the above mentioned data.  This only happens when you give us your consent to use the cookies (see number 6).

3. The Processing after your request

If you contacted us and deliberately provided your personal data to us (for example, by e-mail) we will process your data for the purposes you have made it available. For such no consent is necessary, pursuant art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

When you request is completed, your data will be blocked for further use and erased upon expiry of storage terms, unless you have given your express consent to further use of your data by us.

4. The Processing to marketing purposes

When you sign up for our newsletters or events we collect from you the following data:

  1. E-mail address;
  2. First and last name;
  3. Title and industry (optional);
  4. Your choices and preferences in respect to topics.

We are entitled to process these data pursuant art. 6 (1) a) GDPR. We need therefore you consent to be able to collect this information from you. Newsletter can be unsubscribed at any time, via the link provided for this purposes in each newsletter or by email notice to the following address: marketing@maxgrip.com

Your data will only be used for the decision on whether to establish an employment relationship with you and is internally forwarded only to the responsible recruiter.  If you do not apply for a specific vacancy (open application), we shall use your data with regard to all positions, vacant at the moment of your application, meeting your requirements. We are entitled to processing these data pursuant to Art. 88 GDPR in conjunction with section 26 (1) 1 German Federal Data Protection Act (new version).

We will erase your data after completion of the application process upon expiry of a retention period of 1 month, unless you have given your express consent to further have your data stored in our systems.

6. Cookies

For the sole purpose of statistical analysis of our Internet offer our website generates so-called cookies which store and evaluate your visits to our website. Cookies are small text files placed on your computer to help the website analysis.

Furthermore, we use cookies from Wonderkind. For more information about the use of these cookies we refer you to the privacy-statement of Wonderkind.

All data collected through cookies are erased as soon as they are no longer needed for our recordings.

7. Use of Facebook, twitter and Linkedin

We use social-media plug-ins of the following third party platforms:

  1. Facebook
  2. Twitter
  3. Linkedin

To increase the protection of your data when visiting our website, the plug-ins are integrated into the site by means of the so-called “two-click solution”. Your browser shall establish a direct connection to the server of correspondent provider, but not before you have activated the plug-ins and thus given your consent to the data transfer. Once you have logged into one of the services of the providers, these providers can assign your visit to our website to your profile / account with the respective provider. If you interact with these plug-ins, for example by clicking the Like button or the Twitter button, this information is also directly transferred to the server of the providers and stored there. The information will also be published on the social network or your social media account and is displayed there for your contacts. If you do not want the provider to directly link the information collected through our Internet presence to your profile / account with the respective social network, you must log out of the respective social network before activating the plug-ins.

For further information concerning the scope and purpose for which data is stored, processed and used by the providers, as well as for information on your respective rights and setting options to have your privacy respected, please refer to the corresponding privacy notices of the providers.

The legal basis for this type of processing is your consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

8. Your rights

In relation with our processing of your personal data you have the following rights:

  1. Revocation of consents granted;
  2. Information, as listed in Art. 15 GDPR;
  3. Rectification and erasure as referred to in Art. 17 GDPR;
  4. Restriction of processing, under the conditions set out in Art. 18 GDPR;
  5. Disclosure of data and data transmission.

Moreover, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning yourself, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to have us transmit these personal data to another controller on your instruction, where technically feasible. The right to data transmission only relates to personal data, the processing of which is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) b) GDPR, and where the processing is carried out by automated means. The assertion of all rights specified above is generally free of charge for you.

In case of manifestly unfounded or, in particular because of their repetitive character, excessive applications relating to the rights under b. through e., we may, however, in accordance with Art. 12 (5) GDPR either:

  • demand a reasonable compensation which takes into account administrative expenses for the communication or notification or the implementation of the requested action, or
  • refuse to act on the request.

Please contact our data protection lead for the exercise of your rights. You will then be fully informed of the procedure, if applicable.

You can print and save this Data Protection Information immediately, for example through the print and save function of your browser.
