According to this, the processing of data required in connection with the decision on the establishment of an employment relationship is permitted.
Should the data be required for legal prosecution after completion of the application process, data processing may be carried out on the basis of the requirements of Art. 6 GDPR, in particular to safeguard legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our interest then lies in the assertion or defence of claims.

§ 7 New customer creation

Data protection information about our data processing in accordance with Article 13 and Article 21 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

We take data protection seriously and hereby inform you how we process your data and what claims and rights you are entitled to under data protection regulations.

Purposes and legal basis on which we process your data

We process personal data in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and other applicable data protection regulations. Which data is processed in detail and how it is used depends on the respective agreed service.


1. purposes for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 para. 1 b GDPR)

The processing of personal data takes place for the fulfilment of our contracts with you and the execution of your orders as well as for the implementation of measures and activities in the context of pre-contractual relationships. In particular, the processing serves to prepare invoices in accordance with your orders and includes the services, measures and activities necessary for this.

2. purposes within the scope of a legitimate interest of us or third parties (Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR)

  • Beyond the actual fulfilment of the contract or pre-contract, we may process your data if it is necessary to protect our legitimate interests or those of third parties, in particular for the purposes of
    advertising or market and opinion research, provided you have not objected to the use of your data;
  • obtaining information and exchanging data with credit agencies, insofar as this is covered by our legitimate interest
  • the enrichment of our data, e.g. by using or researching publicly accessible data;
  • the limited storage of data if deletion is not possible or only possible with disproportionate effort due to the special type of storage


3. purposes for the fulfilment of legal requirements (Art. 6 para. 1 c GDPR) or in the public interest (Art. 6 para. 1 e GDPR)

We are subject to a large number of legal requirements (e.g. commercial and tax laws), but also regulatory or other official requirements. The purposes of processing may include identity and age verification, fraud and money laundering prevention, the prevention, combating and investigation of terrorist financing and criminal offences that endanger assets, comparisons with European and international anti-terror lists, the fulfilment of control and reporting obligations under tax law and the archiving of data for the purposes of data protection and data security as well as audits by tax and other authorities. In addition, the disclosure of personal data may become necessary in the context of official/judicial measures for the purposes of gathering evidence, criminal prosecution or the enforcement of civil law claims.


4. categories of data processed by us, insofar as we do not receive data directly from you, and their origin

Insofar as this is necessary for the provision of our services, we process personal data legitimately received from other companies or other third parties (e.g. credit agencies). We also process personal data that we have legitimately taken, received or acquired from publicly accessible sources (e.g. telephone directories, commercial and association registers, etc.) and are authorised to process.

Recipients or categories of recipients of your data
Within our company, those internal departments or organisational units receive your data that need it to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations or as part of the processing and implementation of our legitimate interest. Your data will only be passed on to external parties

  • in connection with contract processing;
  • for the purpose of fulfilling legal requirements,
  • on the basis of our legitimate interest or the legitimate interest of the third party for the purposes mentioned in section 2.2 (e.g. to authorities, credit agencies, debt collection agencies, lawyers, courts,
  • experts, group companies and committees and supervisory bodies);
  • if you have given us your consent for transmission to third parties.

We will not pass on your data to third parties beyond this.

5 Duration of the storage of your data

We process and store your data for the duration of our business relationship. This also includes the initiation of a contract (pre-contractual legal relationship) and the fulfilment of a contract. In addition, we store data that must be retained due to commercial and tax regulations for 10 years. Other data for which no tax retention periods are applicable will be retained until the end of the regular limitation period (§§195, 199 BGB), but periods of up to 30 years may be applicable under certain circumstances.
If the data is no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual or legal obligations and rights, it is regularly deleted, unless its – temporary – further processing is necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes listed in section 2.2 for an overriding legitimate interest.

6. processing of your data in a third country or by an international organisation

Data is transferred to bodies in countries outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) (so-called third countries) if it is necessary for the execution of an order/contract from you, if it is required by law (e.g. tax reporting obligations), if it is in our or a third party’s legitimate interest or if you have given us your consent.
Your data may also be processed in a third country in connection with the involvement of service providers as part of order processing. If there is no decision by the EU Commission on an appropriate level of data protection in the country in question, we ensure that your rights and freedoms are adequately protected and guaranteed in accordance with EU data protection regulations by means of appropriate contracts.

7. credit agencies

Our company regularly checks the creditworthiness of our customers if there is a legitimate interest, e.g. if our company could be affected by a financial default risk. For this purpose, we work together with Creditreform Hamm Samoray KG, from which we receive the necessary data. For this purpose, we transmit your personal data from this contractual relationship and the information required to obtain the credit rating to The legal basis for the data transfer is Art. 6 I 1 f), Art. 6 I b) GDPR. You can view the information pursuant to Art. 14 of the GDPR on the data processing taking place at Creditreform Hamm Samoray KG at
