Data protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

When you use this website, various personal data is collected. Personal data are all data that could identify you personally. This data protection declaration explains which data we collect and what it is used for. It also explains how this is done and for what purpose.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. e-mail correspondence) can have security gaps. It is not possible to assure that data are completely protected against third party access.

Note on the responsible body

The responsible body for data processing on this website is:

RCS Risk & Claims Services GmbH

Responsible body is the natural or legal person who alone or together with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Revocation of consent to data processing

Many data processing processes are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail. The legality of the data processing up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right of appeal to the responsible regulatory authority

In the event of breaches of the data protection law, the person concerned has a right of appeal to the responsible regulatory authority. The responsible regulatory authority for data protection issues is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based.

If you request the direct transfer of the data to another person responsible, this can only be conducted if technically feasible.

4. Data collection on our website

Cookies

Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.

You can set your browser in a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies in general or for certain cases and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Cookies, which are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process or provide certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping basket function), are stored based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (Data Protection Act). The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for technically error-free and optimized provision of services. As far as other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyze your surfing behavior) are stored, they are treated separately in this data protection declaration.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored for processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The data entered in the contact form is therefore processed exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete them, revoke your consent for storage or the purpose for storing your data no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

Applicant details

We collect and process the personal data of applicants for handling the application process. Processing may also be carried out electronically. 

This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to us electronically, for example by e-mail or via a form on the website. 

If an employment contract results from the application, the transmitted data will be stored for processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal regulations. 

If no employment contract results from the application, the application documents shall be deleted six months after completion of the filling of the vacancy, provided that no other legitimate interests of the body responsible for data processing stand in the way of deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). Data may also be stored for a longer period after approval by the applicant.
