General regulations
This section covers general, data protection issues associated with the use of this website.

Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke an already given consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “//” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, blocking, deletion
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.

Objection to advertising e-mails
We hereby object to the use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation to send advertising and information material that has not been expressly requested. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.

Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. 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

This data is not merged with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Google Maps
This site uses the mapping service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission. The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy location of the places indicated by us on the website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Contact form
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, the information you provide in the inquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

To manage the cookies and similar technologies used (tracking pixels, web beacons, etc.) and related consents, we use the consent tool “Real Cookie Banner”. Details on how “Real Cookie Banner” works can be found under this link.

Legal bases for the processing of personal data in this context are Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest is the management of the cookies and similar technologies used and the related consents. The provision of the personal data is neither contractually required nor necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide the personal data. If you do not provide the personal data, we will not be able to manage your consents.

Application procedure
This section covers Appcon AG’s application process (hereinafter “Application Process”).

In the application process, all personal data (hereinafter “data”) collected and processed by Appcon AG are stored centrally on certified servers of the service provider IONOS SE within the Federal Republic of Germany. The necessary agreement under data protection law exists with the service provider.

Appcon AG attaches great importance to the protection of your privacy and your personal data as well as the necessary data security. Only Appcon AG, as the body responsible for the application process, may view your application documents submitted to Appcon AG and process them as part of the application process. Changes to and deletion of the data provided can only be made by Appcon AG.

Only personal data will be collected, processed and used via the application process in accordance with the principles described below and the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter “DSGVO”) and the data protection law applicable to Appcon AG.

When you use the application process, various personal data are collected. “Personal data” is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). With this privacy policy, we inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection, processing and use of your personal data in the context of the application procedure at Appcon AG.

1. General information on data processing

We collect, process and use your personal data only for the purposes of carrying out the application process. Your provided personal data will not be used for any other purposes than the execution of the application process.

The processing of an applicant’s provided personal data will only take place with the applicant’s prior express consent.

The application procedure is not directed at minors. We request that persons under the age of 16 do not provide any personal data to us. If we learn that we have collected personal data from minors, we will take steps to delete the data as soon as possible. If you learn that a user of our application process is a minor, please contact us at bewerbung@appcon.ag.

If you have any questions about data protection in the application process, please contact our HR department or our data protection officer. You will find the respective contact details at the end of this privacy policy.

2. Email dispatch

At the beginning of the application process, your e-mail address is collected, by sending your application documents. By submitting an application by e-mail, you will receive a confirmation e-mail after receipt of the e-mail informing you that your application has been successfully received.

Based on your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a) DSGVO, Appcon AG stores your personal data on cloud servers of the provider IONOS SE until your application documents are deleted. You can request the deletion of your provided application data at any time by sending an informal email to karriere@appcon.ag.

3. Application process

Your application data (application photo, title, first name, surname, date of birth, e-mail address/login, password, user language, address data, place of residence, your letter of application and your CV, as well as additional attachments/documents such as certificates, certificates of attendance at training courses or certificates of additional qualifications, previous employment, training(s), language skills, information on how you became aware of the job advertisement) will be passed on to us after successful submission for the purpose of storing, evaluating, allocating and internally forwarding your application and for contacting you.

During the application process, your application data is only accessible to those responsible for the application process at Appcon AG. Only persons or colleagues at Appcon AG who need to be involved in filling the position, i.e. in the application process, can view your application documents via an established authorization. The existing authorization concept in the application process provides for role-dependent and local viewing rights. In principle, only those persons who are sensitized to the concerns of data protection and security and who are subject to a contractual obligation of confidentiality are granted access to your data. Your application data will not be passed on to third parties outside Appcon AG.

In our application process, we will not ask you to provide us with so-called sensitive personal data. However, if you voluntarily provide us with such information, you allow us to store this information as part of the application process and to use it for the purposes of the application process.

We store your personal data as long as this is necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or your consent to storage (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO) has been given. Subsequently, your data will be completely anonymized by us, unless you have consented to further storage in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) DSGVO in the event that the purpose of storage is no longer applicable. Your application data for an individual position will therefore be stored for a maximum of six months after any rejection and then completely anonymized by us.

4. Data storage

The data is stored centrally on backup servers of IONOS SE within the Federal Republic of Germany in compliance with national data protection regulations. IONOS SE does not use the data independently or pass it on to third parties. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

Storage (max. six months) is possible in individual cases, if required by law. In this case, anonymization takes place in the form of deleting or alienating the user’s IP address. An assignment of the calling user is no longer possible. The collection of the data for provision and the storage of the data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the recruiting system. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the applicant.

5. Data subject rights

We would like to point out that you have full control over the personal data you provide to Appcon AG when you send us your application. You can change, correct or mark for deletion/anonymization all your provided data at any time.

6. Right to information and right to change

You can request information about the data stored about you in our application process and provided to us at any time using the contact details provided. A change of the data by us will not take place at any time, unless you request this in writing, gladly by e-mail to the above e-mail address.

7. Data deletion

Data in connection with a specific application for a vacant position will be anonymized after a period of 6 months at the latest, unless an employment contract is concluded. For further information on the duration of storage, please refer to section 3. You can request us to delete your data at any time in writing, preferably by e-mail.

As a responsible company, we generally do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.

8. Availability and changes

You can save or print this privacy policy by using the corresponding functions of your browser.

We reserve the right to change this privacy policy from time to time and to adapt it to new legal requirements or developments in case law and recommend that you inform yourself about the current privacy policy each time you use our application process.

9. Complaint option

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, workplace or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged will inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.

For this purpose, please contact the data protection authority responsible for your place of residence or your federal state.
