1. General information regarding data processing

1.1. Processing of personal data and the purpose of same

Julius Berger International GmbH (hereinafter referred to as ‘Julius Berger’ or ‘we’) processes the personal data of users only to the extent that this is necessary for the provision of a functional website and our content and services. When visiting our websites, the following data is processed:

  • IP address of the user
  • used browser (type, version, language)
  • used operating system
  • Internet service provider of the user
  • Date and time of access to our website
  • Files retrieved on our website
  • Website from which the user was linked to our website
  • Website that the user accesses through our website

The processing and temporary storage of the IP address is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer. To do this, the user's IP address must be stored for the duration of the session. The log files contain IP addresses or other data that allow the user to be assigned. Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the web pages. In addition, the data is used to optimize our websites and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. Any processing of the personal data will take place solely for the stated purposes and to the extent necessary to achieve these purposes. This data is not used for purposes of advertising, customer service or market research.


1.2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

The processing of the personal data of our users takes place regularly with the user’s consent. An exception applies in cases in which prior consent is not possible for reasons of fact and we are permitted to process the data by law. The storage of the data and log files is based on Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.


1.3. Data deletion and duration of storage

The personal data of the persons concerned will be deleted or blocked by us as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. In the case of data processing for the provision of the web pages, deletion takes place when the respective session has ended. In the case of storage of personal data in log files, deletion takes place after no later than seven days. Further storage is possible, provided that the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated beforehand, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.



2. Cookies

A cookie contains a characteristic string that allows a clear identification of the browser when revisiting our web pages. The following data is stored and transmitted in the cookies:

The purpose of using cookies lies in the user-friendly design of our websites. The processing of personal data using cookies is based on Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Cookies are stored on the user's computer and transmitted from there to our websites. Users may disable or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings of their Internet browser. Already saved cookies can be deleted at any time. If cookies are disabled for our websites, it may not be possible to use all functions of our websites to the full.


3. Web analysis

Our websites use Matomo (formerly Piwik), a software for the statistical evaluation of user access by InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand. No personal user profiles are created; only anonymous measurement values are collected. With web analytics we aim to improve the quality of our websites and their content.

4. Email contact

Users can contact us via the email address provided. In this case, the personal data of the user transmitted by email will be stored by us. The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If the establishment of contact is aimed at concluding a contract, the legal basis for the processing of the data is Article 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. The data will be used exclusively to process the contact and the subsequent communication. In this context, the data is not forwarded to third parties. The personal data sent to us via email will be deleted once the communication with the user has ended i.e., as soon as it can be deduced from the circumstances that the facts are finally clarified. The additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted at the latest after a period of seven days.

 

5. Career Portal - Talent Pool

On our web pages, we offer applicants the opportunity to apply for vacancies by providing personal data. To simplify the application process, we offer applicants the opportunity to register on our career portal. The data is entered into an input mask and transmitted to us and stored. The following data is collected:
 
• Salutation (optional)
• First name, Last Name
• User name
• Email address
• IP address of the user
• Date and time of dispatch.
 
The applicant will then receive a registration email at the specified email address containing a link enabling the applicant to confirm his registration and complete the registration process. After successful registration, the applicant can open his user account by entering his email address and password and create his application profile. Until the application is sent, the applicant may change his details at any time.
 
The personal data provided in the context of an application will be processed by us solely for the purpose of selecting applicants. For the processing of applications, we limit ourselves to the information provided directly by the applicants. This may include information that applicants have deposited in online professional networks or job boards. If, in the context of the application process, we ask for the gender of the applicant in the form of the requested salutation, then this is solely due to the fact that we want to write to the candidates in the correct manner. The processing of personal data in the context of the career portal is based on Article 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, or Article 88 para. 1 GDPR in conjunction with Section 26 BDSG. The data will be deleted by us six months after the rejection of an application, unless the applicant has consented to the inclusion of his personal data in our talent pool.

Applicants who have applied for a specific position advertised by Julius Berger, but whose application documents render them unsuitable for the position in question are invited to become members of our talent pool and thus prospective suitable candidates for other areas within Julius Berger. First of all, we get in contact with the candidates so that they can decide whether they are interested in the procedure described. The processing of personal data within the talent pool is based on Article 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR or Article 88 para. 1 GDPR in conjunction with Section 26 BDSG. The data will initially be included in the talent pool for six months. As soon as the applicant logs on to the system again with his access data, the period of six months begins again. If the applicant does not adapt or use his profile over a period of five months, we will request that the applicant email an update of his data. If there is no update by the applicant, his data will be removed from the talent pool after four weeks and locked for further use. The personal data will be deleted after another six months.

Minors who have not reached the age of 16 must send us a letter of consent from their parents or legal guardian declaring that we may accept the minor candidate into our talent pool and process his personal data in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the consent given.

 

6. Social Media

On our websites we provide social media plug-ins (‘plug-ins’) of the social networks Facebook and Twitter. They connect to the respective service provider. Data is transmitted on the browser behavior of the user. When users click on one of the plug-ins, personal data (IP address of the user as well as the web address (URL) of the page currently visited by the user, including time and location) are transmitted to and processed by the respective service provider. Further information on data processing can be found in the Privacy Policy of the respective service provider:
