Data protection declaration
As a user of our website, you will receive all necessary information in this data protection declaration about how, to what extent and for what purpose we or third-party providers collect data from you and use it. The collection and use of your data is strictly in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR/DSGVO), the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz – BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz – TMG). We feel particularly committed to the confidentiality of your personal data and therefore work strictly within the limits set by the legal requirements. Whenever viable, the collection of this personal data takes place on a voluntary basis. We will also only pass this data on to third parties with your express consent. With regard to your enquiries to us we ensure a high level of security for particularly confidential data by using SSL encryption. At this point, however, we would like to draw your attention to the general dangers of Internet use over which we have no influence. Particularly in e-mail traffic, your data is not secure without further precautions and may be collected by third parties under certain circumstances.
The data controller within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation and other national data protection laws of the member states as well as other provisions of data protection law is the Data Protection Officer:
Tec Professionals GmbH
External Data Protection Officer:
Count Consultings GmbH
Types of data processed:
In the case of users who wish to submit an application, Tec Professionals requires personal data of the user for the purpose of initiating and, if necessary, executing the contract, which the user provides when submitting the application. Furthermore, the data will be processed for the purpose of complying with legal provisions and regulations, such as labour law, tax and social law as well as international sanctions regimes (e.g. EU anti-terrorism directive).
This includes the necessary data to be provided – such as the user’s title, name, address and e-mail address, telephone number as well as information on education and further training; professional experience; knowledge in the sense of additional qualifications; preferences for employment by companies with regards to the occupational field, the preferred place of work as well as working hours, etc.
Usage or inventory data (e.g. IP address, name of the retrieved file, date and time of retrieval, transferred data volume, notification of successful retrieval, web browser and requesting domain.)
This data is encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption and transmitted to us via the Internet.
We secure our website and other systems through technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, alteration or distribution of data by unauthorised persons.
However, Tec Professionals points out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
Purpose of processing
– To provide the online offer, its functions and contents
– To answer contact requests and communicate with users
– safety precautions
Collection of access data and log files
We, and as the case may be our web hosting provider, collect data on the basis of our justified interests in the sense of the art. 6 para.1 lit. f. DSGVO (GDPR) about each access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files). The access data include the name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, information on the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
For security reasons (e.g. for the clarification of abuse or fraudulent actions) log file information is stored for a maximum duration of 7 days and deleted afterwards. Data which necessitates further storage for evidence purposes are excluded from deletion until the respective incident’s definitive clarification.
Processing of personal data in accordance with the provisions of the German Law on the Temporary Employment of Employees (AüG – Arbeitnehmerüberlassungsgesetz).We process the applicant’s personal data as far as this is necessary for the establishment and configuration of the application relationship as well as the placement of the applicant with third companies. Tec Professionals will also keep this data, as far as required by statutory provisions, beyond the termination of the application relationship. Tec Professionals will also transmit the data to the social insurance institution to the extent required by the Data Collection and Transmission Ordinance (§2 & §3 No. 4 DEÜV – Datenerfassungs- und Übermittlungsverordnung).
Data provided by applicants in the application process
We process personal data which we receive from you within the scope of our business relationship. On our website, we offer applicants the possibility to register by providing their personal data. The data is entered into an input mask and transmitted to us and then stored. Data will only be passed on to third parties to the extent described below.
Relevant personal data encompass your surname, first name, date of birth and your full address, your contact details, your current professional situation, as well as your desired deployment location, your availability and your career aspirations. In addition, for a successful placement, we need all the information usually included in a CV (including qualifications and skills) and all information necessary for a successful placement.
The application is necessary in order to fulfil a contract with the applicant or in order to carry out pre-contractual measures. The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (GDPR).
The legal basis for processing the data beyond other legal bases is in any case the applicant’s consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO (GDPR). During the application process, the applicant’s consent to the processing of this data is obtained.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case during the application process for the fulfilment of a contract or for the realisation of pre-contractual measures if the data is no longer required for the realisation of the contract. Even after the contract has been concluded, it may be necessary to store personal data in order to comply with contractual or legal obligations.
You can request deletion by giving your full name to the data controller.
If the data is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract or for the realisation of pre-contractual measures, a premature deletion of the data is only possible insofar as contractual or legal obligations do not oppose a deletion.
Data transfer to third parties, order processing by service providers
Tec Professionals will only pass on personal data to third parties if the applicant has expressly consented to this or there is a legal obligation to do so. Tec Professionals uses the service provider GermanPersonnel for the aforementioned purposes, in particular its electronic recruiting tools “persy” (job advertisement creation and administration as well as applicant administration), which is subject to the corresponding data protection requirements.
The applicant’s personal data will be transmitted to other Tec Professionals customers insofar as this is necessary for the placement of the applicant. The necessity depends on the applicant’s profile, insofar as a placement with a client of Tec Professionals seems possible. Should an applicant wish to restrict the scope of the potential deployments, they must inform Tec Professionals of this by e-mail, making use of the aforementioned contact address or in writing.
If the applicant participates, as part of their activities for Tec Professionals, in support measures and/or labour market projects of the Federal Employment Agency (“Bundesagentur für Arbeit”), the working groups (“ARGE”) or the opting municipalities (“Optionskommunen”), or makes use of the services of these institutions (collectively “labour market projects”), Tec Professionals is entitled pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (GDPR) to transfer personal data to these institutions and third parties insofar as this is required for the purpose of the labour market projects and/or prescribed by law. If the applicant wishes to participate in the labour market projects with the support of Tec Professionals, any data transmission is required which serves the purpose of the labour market project appropriately.
The applicant is not permitted to pass on third-party data from Tec Professionals’ applicant registration and administration system/job exchange to third parties. Tec Professionals shall be entitled to suspend the applicant immediately in the event of any infringement. The assertion of a claim for damages remains unaffected by this.
Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (GDPR).
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The data is stored in log files in order to ensure the functionality of the website. The data is also used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (GDPR).
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data to deliver the website, this is the case when the respective session is terminated.
If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or anonymised so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no opt-out option on the part of the user.
When contacting us (e.g. via contact form, e-mail, telephone or via social media), the user’s details will be processed for the purpose of processing the contact enquiry and processing it in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO (GDPR). The user data can be stored in a customer relationship management system (“CRM system”) or a comparable inquiry system.
We will delete the requests if they are no longer required. We review the necessity every two years; furthermore, the statutory archiving obligations apply.

Individual analysis services
Data is collected and stored on this website using the web analysis service software Matomo (www.matomo.org), a service of the provider InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, (“Matomo”) on the basis of our justified interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes in accordance with Art. 6 para.1 lit. f DSGVO (GDPR). From this data, pseudonymised user profiles can be created and evaluated for the same purpose. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the internet browser used by the page visitor. The cookies enable, among other things, the recognition of the Internet browser. The data collected using Matomo technology (including your pseudonymised IP address) is processed on our servers.

If you do not agree with the storage and evaluation of this data from your visit, you can subsequently object to its storage and use at any time by one simple mouse click. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser, which means that Matomo does not collect any session data. Please note that the complete deletion of your cookies means that the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and may have to be reactivated by you.

The hosting services used by us serve the provision of the following services: Infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services and technical maintenance services which we use for the purpose of operating this online service.
In this context we, or our web hosting provider, process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors of this online offer on the basis of our justified interests in an efficient and secure provision of this online offer in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (GDPR) in conjunction with Art. 28 DSGVO (GDPR) (conclusion of contract processing agreement).
Transmissions to third countries
If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this is done within the framework of the use of third-party services or disclosure or transfer of data to third parties, this will only occur if it is done to fulfil our (pre)contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, a legal obligation or on the basis of our justified interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or allow the data to be processed in a third country only if the special requirements of Art. 44 ff. DSGVO (GDPR) are met. This means that the processing takes place, for example, on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognised determination of a data protection level corresponding to the EU’s (e.g. for the USA through the “Privacy Shield”) or the observance of officially recognised special contractual obligations (so-called “standard contractual clauses”).
Rights of the data subject
If your personal data is processed, you are the data subject within the meaning of the DSGVO (GDPR) and you are entitled to the following rights vis-à-vis the data controller:

You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you will be transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 DSGVO (GDPR) in connection with the transfer.
Right to rectification
You have the right to have your personal data corrected and/or completed by the data controller if the personal data processed concerning you is inaccurate or incomplete. The person responsible must carry out the correction immediately.
Right to limitation of processing
Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of your personal data be restricted:
(1) if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time which allows the person responsible to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
(2) the processing is unlawful and you reject the deletion of the personal data and instead request the restriction of the use of the personal data;
(3) the data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need them in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or
(4) if you have lodged an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO (GDPR) and it has not yet been determined whether the justified reasons of the data controller outweigh your reasons.
Where the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may not be processed, with the exception of their storage, without your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
If the processing restriction has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.
Right to deletion
You may request the data controller to delete the personal data concerning you immediately and the data controller is obliged to delete this data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:
(1) The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
(2) You revoke your consent on which the processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO (GDPR) was based and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
(3) You object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO (GDPR) and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 DSGVO (GDPR).

The right to deletion does not exist if the processing is necessary
(1) for the exercise of freedom of expression and information;
(2) to fulfil a legal obligation which requires the processing under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject or to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of public authority vested in the controller;
(3) for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i as well as Art. 9 para. 3 DSGVO (GDPR);
(4) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Right to information
If you have exercised your right to rectify, delete or limit the processing of your personal data against the controller, the latter is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of such rectification, deletion or limitation, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. You shall have the right vis-à-vis the controller to be informed of such recipients.
Right to data transferability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to communicate this data to another data controller without being hindered by the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that
(1) the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO (GDPR) or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO (GDPR) or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (GDPR) and
(2) processing is carried out using automated procedures. In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transmitted directly by one data controller to another data controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
(3) The right to data transfer does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Right of objection
You have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f DSGVO (GDPR); this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The controller will no longer process the personal data relating to you unless they can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you are processed for the purpose of direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling to the extent that it is connected with such direct advertising.
If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.
You have the possibility to exercise your right of objection in relation to the use of information society services – notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC – by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of the consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the revocation.
Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to any decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that has any legal effect on you or similarly significantly affects you. This shall not apply if the decision
(1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,
(2) is authorised by legal provisions of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject and if they contain adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
(3) is made with your explicit consent.
(4) However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO (GDPR), unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g apply and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.
In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the controller, to present your own point of view and the right to contest the decision.
Right of appeal to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of presumed infringement, if you consider that the processing of your personal data is in breach of the DSGVO (GDPR).
The supervisory authority to which the complaint was submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy according to Article 78 DSGVO (GDPR).

Online presences on social media
We maintain online presences on social networks and platforms in order to be able to communicate with customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services. When visiting the respective networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and the data processing guidelines of their respective operators apply.
Unless otherwise stated in our data protection declaration, we process the data of users who communicate with us via social networks and platforms, e.g. post contributions on our online presence or send us messages.
Integration of third-party services and content
Within the scope of our online offer, we integrate, on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. of DSGVO (GDPR)), content or service offers from third parties in order to integrate their content and services, such as logos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “Content”).
This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content receive the IP address of the user, since they would not be able to send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of these contents. We strive to use only those contents; whose respective providers use the IP address only for the distribution of the contents. Third parties may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website.
