It is generally possible to use our website without the need to provide any personal details. If personal details (such as name, address, or e-mail address) are collected on our website, they are always provided on a voluntary basis wherever possible. These details are not shared with any third parties without your explicit consent. We wish to point out that there may be security vulnerabilities when sending data over the Internet (e.g. during e-mail communications). It is not possible to fully protect data against access by third parties. Third parties are hereby explicitly forbidden from using the contact details published herein as a legal requirement for the purposes of sending unsolicited advertisements and informational material. The operators of the website reserve the right to take legal action if unsolicited advertisements are sent, e.g. in the form of spam e-mails.
If you opt to send us your application by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, then we wish to point out that only a limited, authorized number of employees will have access to this mailbox in the interests of maintaining confidentiality. Furthermore, the data you send will be used solely by us for the purposes of processing your application. However, due to the legal situation in Germany that requires business communications – including e-mails – to be stored in an audit-compliant manner, there is limited scope to set deletion periods for applications received by e-mail. We also wish to point out to you that unencrypted e-mails sent over the Internet are not sufficiently protected against unauthorized access by third parties. Our application portal is available to you in order to ensure that your data is sent securely and your application documents are processed in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR: thjnkag-jobs.personio.de
Getting in touch by e-mail
You can use the option on our website of getting in touch with us by e-mail to request information about our services or to contact us about general matters. We wish to point out that German legal requirements compel us to retain your e-mails in their full, original tamper-proof form for a period of up to ten years and further ensure that access to such e-mails is possible at any time. This includes any correspondence through which a business transaction is prepared, processed, concluded, or rescinded. We use the contact details you send to process your inquiry, address you in the correct manner, and provide you with a reply. In this regard, additional persons or departments with the relevant expertise within our company may have access to your inquiry in order to reply to it in the best possible way. Personal details such as e-mail address, first name, and surname are processed on the basis of our legitimate commercial interest in securing new contracts and maintaining business contacts.
The responsible body in accordance with data protection laws, particularly the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is:

The purposes of data processing by the responsible body and any third parties

Social media links
We are present on our company’s various social media channels to enable us to communication with active users here. To this end, we simply link our presence on our website without using so-called plug-ins. We wish to point out that data may be processed outside the European Union as a result of accessing these links. This may entail risks for users because it could make it more difficult to assert their rights, for example. With regard to US firms that are certified under the Privacy Shield or provide comparable guarantees of a secure level of data protection, we wish to point out that they are duty-bound to adhere to the EU’s data protection standards. Furthermore, the users’ data is generally used within social networks for market research and advertising purposes. As a result, user profiles may be created on the basis of user behavior and the ensuing interests of the users. The user profiles may in turn be used to show advertisements on and outside these networks, which are likely to correspond to the interests of the users (particularly if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged into them). For a detailed explanation of the relevant forms of processing and the opt-out options, please refer to the privacy policies and information provided by the operators of the respective networks. Similarly, in the event of requests for information or the assertion of rights as a data subject, we wish to point out that this can be done most effectively by contacting the relevant provider. Only the providers have access to the users’ data and can directly take appropriate action and provide information. Should you nonetheless still require assistance, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. On our website, we have incorporated links to the following social media platforms:
