2.7. Data processing when using third party content and web fonts
Our website uses offers from third parties. These are Youtube, Vimeo and OpenStreetMap. Normally your web browser would automatically exchange information with these providers, such as your IP address. To prevent this, we use so-called two-click solutions. To use the offers of third party providers, it is necessary to first enable the data transfer to these third-party providers. Before this is done, none of your data will be sent to the third party provider, and you remain unknown to it. If you activate this button then information will be transmitted directly from your web browser to the respective provider. We then no longer have any influence on the processing of your data by third-party providers—just as when you follow a link to another website. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 letter f GDPR; the legitimate interest is your wish to activate and use the third-party content.
Data that is thereby transferred include, for example, from which page you clicked on the button and your IP address. If you are logged in at the provider or if the provider can otherwise identify you (for example, via the cookies stored at your machine) the provider can link the information that you visited our website with other information about you, such as your user account at the provider. If you do not want the provider to associate this information with your other information, you should log out beforehand and, ideally, delete the cookies in your web browser.
When you submit data to third-party providers, this data is subject to the privacy policies of those providers. We can assume no liability for this action. Please note that depending on the origin country of the third-party provider, the data privacy regulations may be less stringent than ours. Information about the data regulation of third-party providers is available here:
2.8. Data processing in connection with job applications
We understand that job applications contain sensitive personal information.
When you apply to us, we process the information we receive from you in the context of the application process. This includes the letter of application, CV, certificates, written correspondence and information received by telephone and in person. Besides your contact information, we attach particular importance to your educational background, working experience and abilities. Without this information we will be unable to regularly determine your suitability for the position and therefore we will be unable to consider your application.
Your data will initially be processed for the application procedure alone. If your application is successful, it will be used as part of your personal file and for the purpose of implementing and terminating your employment relationship, whereby it will then be deleted in accordance with the rules applicable to personal files. If we are currently unable to offer you employment, your data will be processed up to six months after the sending the refusal in order to protect ourselves against possible legal claims, in particular against any alleged discrimination claim in the application process. Insofar, as you are entitled to receive reimbursements or any other tax-related business transaction exists (e.g., a meal invitation), the corresponding accounting documents for the fulfillment of commercial and tax-related retention obligations are saved up to 31 March of the eleventh calender year after payment. In the case of commercial and business letters and other tax-related documents, these are saved up to the seventh calender year after their creation. Initially our human resource department has access to your documents but also, as necessary, the department of the job you applied for, the legal department, and the accounting department.
The legal basis of the data processing in the application process and as part of the personal file are § 26 para. 1 sent. 1 GDPR und Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 letter b GDPR, and insofar as you have given your consent—for example by sending information that is not required for the application procedure―Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 letter a GDPR. The legal basis of data processing after refusal is Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 letter f GDPR.The legal basis for the commercial and tax law retention is Art. 6 para.1 subpara. 1 letter c GDPR in conjunction with §§ 147 AO, 257 HGB. Legitimate interest in processing on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 letter f GDPR is the defense against legal claims. The legal basis for the fulfillment of the statuatory rights of the Works Council is Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 letter c GDPR in conjunction with § 80 BetrVG (German Works Council Constitution Act), § 26 para. 1 sent. 1 last clause BDSG (Federal Data Protection Act).
As a rule, we do not require any special categories of personal data for the application in terms of Art. 9 GDPR, such as health data or information about your ethical origin. We ask you at the outset not to provide us with any such information. If such information is particularly relevant to the application, we will process it along with your other application data. This might, for example, concern information about severe disability, which you provide voluntarily and which we are then required to process in fulfillment of our specific obligation with respect to the severely disabled. In this case, the processing serves in exercising the rights or in fulfillment of legal responsibilities arising from labor law, social security law, and social protection. The legal basis of data processing is Art. 9 para. 2 letter b GDPR, §§ 26 para. 3 BDSG (Federal Data Protection Act), 164 SGB (Code of Social Law) IX.
3. Voluntary provision of your data
You are not required to provide personal information to us. However, by not providing us with certain information (for example, how to contact you if you would like an answer from us), it is possible that we will be unable to complete your request. In the context of special procedures (for example, when you register for an event or our newsletter), you may again be required to provide us with certain information. Without this data we may not, for example, be able to process your registration or send you our newsletter. You will be expressly informed if this should be the case.
4. Recipients of your data
Generally, your personal data remains within our area of responsibility, except in special cases (e.g., co-operative events), in which we will then explicitly inform you to whom your data will be sent. If compelling circumstances arise, it may be necessary to pass on your data to external consultants, for example to lawyers in the case of legal disputes (legal basis Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 letter f GDPR; purpose and legitimate interest: the exercising, defending or asserting of legal rights). Our administrators have the possibility to access data processed by our IT department, if this should be necessary. Our data protection officer has extensive rights of control, accorded by Art. 37, 38 GDPR, and therefore access to personal data (legal basis Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 letter c in conjunction with Art. 37, 38 GDPR). Further recipients of your data are listed in the notes on the respective data processing. In certain cases, we may need to disclose your personal information to third parties so that you can receive the service you want; this means to vicarious agents, for example banks and other payment service providers or to postal service providers. In certain areas, such as web hosting and email hosting, we use specialized service providers. These providers are strictly bound by our instructions through an agreement on commissioned data processing and may not process the data for their own purposes. If in special cases (e.g., co-operative events with partners outside of the EU), your data will be transferred to third countries, we will inform you of this and, if required, also separately about the legal basis and level of data protection.
5. Automated decision-making, profiling
Your data will not be used for automated decision-making or profiling.
6. Your rights
Under the relevant legal requirements, you have the right to receive information about your data, the right to have such data corrected or deleted, the right to the restriction of processing, the right to object to processing, and the right to data tranferability. In particular, you have the right to object to the processing of your data for advertising purposes at any time without incurring costs other than the transmission costs, according to the rates of your provider (e.g., the costs of an email=usually none). This applies, for example, if you have registered for an event and do not wish to be informed about similar events. If the data processing is based on consent, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time without this affecting the legality of the processing being carried out on the basis of consent to revocation or processing on any other legal basis. If you want to exercise these rights, you can simply write to datenschutz(at)hpi.de or click on the unsubscribe link in any email newsletter to unsubscribe. If we call you, you can also communicate this to us directly.
You also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about our processing of your personal data, for example to the supervisory authority whom we answer to: Die Landesbeauftragte für den Datenschutz und für das Recht auf Akteneinsicht, Stahnsdorfer Damm 77, 14532 Kleinmachnow, Tel: +49 (0)33203 356-0, Fax: +49 (0)33203 356-49, Email: poststelle(at)lda.brandenburg.de.
If you have questions or requests regarding data protection, you can contact us at any time. Your contact is: datenschutz(at)hpi.de.
7. Your right to object to data processing
Insofar as the processing of your personal data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 subpara. 1 letter e or f GDPR, you have the right to object to processing in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR. If your objection is made for reasons arising from your particular situation, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise of defence against legal claims. If your opposition is directed against direct marketing, including profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct mail, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.
