This data is used exclusively to provide you with access to and use of the website, and is analysed to help us improve our service without directly connecting back to you. This information is not combined with other information provided by you. The use of this data for these purposes is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interest in providing and improving our website, according to Article 6 (1f) of the GDPR.

Personal data stored relating to recruitment agency services is deleted if you withdraw permission for the data to be stored, if you decline storage of the data, if you no longer need to be informed about recruitment services, or if the data can not be stored for other legal reasons.

PROVISION OF YOUR DATA TO THIRD PARTIES FOR STORAGE AND MANAGEMENT

We occasionally use external service providers for the storage and management of your data (in particular: Dropbox and Highrise), and therefore send your data to them. These service providers may be located in countries where data protection law is less strict than in the European Union and Germany. In the case that data is provided to them in this way, we take care that your data is processed in accordance with German and European data protection law, and only for the purposes stated above, and according to guidelines from ELINOR PARTNERS, and that in particular the appropriate precautions are taken, such as the use of the template contract conditions of the European Commission or ensuring that the recipient follows the terms of the “Privacy Shield” agreement between the EU and the USA.

The periods before deletion stated above and the reasons also apply to all data stored with third party service providers.
