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.

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, PSE Management Consultancy 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. PSE Management Consultancy will also keep this data, as far as required by statutory provisions, beyond the termination of the application relationship. PSE Management Consultancy 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).


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.


Contacting us

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.

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”).

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
Deletion obligation

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.

(1) for the exercise of freedom of expression and information;

(4) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Right to information

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.

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).
