If other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your browsing patterns) should be stored, they are addressed separately in this Data Protection Declaration.

The processing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Article 6 (1) a GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of requests addressed to us.

Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
Plugins and tools
The firewall plugin “Ninja Firewall” from NinTechNet, 38, Soi Ladprao 94, Wang Thonglang, Bangkok 10310, Thailand stores the IP address needed for the firewall to function in anonymized form by removing the last 3 characters. These are stored on our own server for 7 days and then deleted. “Ninja Firewall” protects our website from unauthorized access by unwanted network access. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. No data is transmitted to the developer of the plugin. Cookies: Ninja Firewall uses mandatory authentication cookies to whitelist the administrator. Cookies are set only when an administrator logs into the admin console, they do not apply to visitors of the website protected by NinjaFirewall. No personal data of visitors is collected, stored or used. More information about privacy at NinTechNet: https://blog.nintechnet.com/ninjafirewall-general-data-protection-regulation-compliance/.
5. Custom Services
We offer website visitors the opportunity to submit job applications to us (e.g. via e-mail, via postal services on by submitting the online job application form). Below, we will brief you on the scope, purpose and use of the personal data collected from you in conjunction with the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will occur in compliance with the applicable data privacy rights and all other statutory provisions and that your data will always be treated as strictly confidential.
Scope and purpose of the collection of data
If you submit a job application to us, we will process any affiliated personal data (e.g. contact and communications data, application documents, notes taken during job interviews, etc.), if they are required to make a decision concerning the establishment or an employment relationship. The legal grounds for the aforementioned are § 26 New GDPR according to German Law (Negotiation of an Employment Relationship), Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR (General Contract Negotiations) and – provided you have given us your consent – Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. You may revoke any consent given at any time. Within our company, your personal data will only be shared with individuals who are involved in the processing of your job application.
If your job application should result in your recruitment, the data you have submitted will be archived on the grounds of § 26 New GDPR and Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship in our data processing system.
Data Archiving Period
If we are unable to make you a job offer or you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have submitted on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) for up to 6 months from the end of the application procedure (rejection or withdrawal of the application). Afterwards the data will be deleted, and the physical application documents will be destroyed. The storage serves in particular as evidence in the event of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the expiry of the 6-month period (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), deletion will only take place when the purpose for further storage no longer applies.
Longer storage may also take place if you have given your agreement (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR) or if statutory data retention requirements preclude the deletion.
6. Microsoft Teams
- PURPOSE OF PROCESSING
We use the “Microsoft Teams” tool to conduct conference calls, online meetings, video conferences and/or web conferences (hereinafter: “Teams Meetings”). “Microsoft Teams” is a service of Microsoft Corporation.
For more information about Microsoft’s privacy practices, please see the links below:
- RESPONSIBLE PARTY
The responsible party for data processing directly related to the implementation of “Teams Meetings” is ICIG Business Services GmbH & Co. KG.
Note: Insofar as you call up the “Microsoft Teams” Internet page, the “Microsoft Teams” provider is responsible for data processing. However, calling up the Internet page is only necessary for the use of “Microsoft Teams” in order to download the software for the use of “Microsoft Teams”.
- WHAT DATA IS PROCESSED?
When using “Microsoft Teams”, various types of data are processed. The scope of the data also depends on the data you provide before or during participation in “Teams Meetings”.
The following personal data is processed:
– Display name (“Display name”),
– e-mail address
– profile picture (optional)
– preferred language
Meeting metadata: e.g.
– time of day
– meeting ID
– Phone numbers
Text, audio and video data: You may have the option of using the chat function in “Teams Meetings”. To this extent, the text entries you make will be processed in order to display them in the “Teams Meeting”. In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your end device as well as from any video camera of the end device will be processed accordingly for the duration of the meeting. You can turn off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time through the “Microsoft Teams” applications.
- SCOPE OF PROCESSING.
If we want to record “Teams Meetings”, we will transparently inform you in advance and – if necessary – ask for consent.
Chat content is logged when using Microsoft Teams. Files that users share in chats are stored in the OneDrive for Business account of the user who shared the file. Files that team members share in a channel are stored on the team’s SharePoint site.
Automated decision making as defined in Article 22 of the GDPR is not used.
- LEGAL BASIS FOR DATA PROCESSING
As far as personal data of employees of ICIG Business Services GmbH & Co. KG are processed, Section 26 (1) Federal Data Protection Act is the legal basis for data processing. If, in connection with the use of “Microsoft Teams”, personal data is not required for the establishment, implementation or termination of the employment relationship, but is nevertheless an elementary component in the use of “Microsoft Teams”, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR is the legal basis for data processing. In these cases, our interest is in the effective implementation of “Teams meetings”.
For the rest, the legal basis for data processing when conducting “Teams Meetings” is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, insofar as the meetings are conducted in the context of contractual relationships.
Should no contractual relationship exist, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. Again, our interest is in the effective conduct of “Teams Meetings”.
- RECIPIENTS / DISCLOSURE OF DATA.
Personal data processed in connection with participation in “Teams Meetings” will not be disclosed to third parties as a matter of principle, unless it is specifically intended for disclosure. Please note that, as with face-to-face meetings, content from “Teams Meetings” is often used to communicate information with customers, prospects or third parties and is therefore intended for disclosure.
Other recipients: the provider of “Microsoft Teams” necessarily obtains knowledge of the above data to the extent provided for in our order processing agreement with “Microsoft”.
- DATA PROCESSING OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN UNION.
Data processing outside the European Union (EU) does not occur in principle, as we have limited our storage location to data centers in the European Union. However, we cannot exclude the routing of data via Internet servers that are located outside the EU. This may be the case in particular if participants in “Teams Meetings” are located in a third country.
However, the data is encrypted during transport over the Internet and thus protected against unauthorized access by third parties.
- DATA PROTECTION OFFICER
We have appointed a data protection officer.
You can reach him as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org
- YOUR RIGHTS AS A DATA SUBJECT
You have the right to obtain information about the personal data concerning you. You can contact us for information at any time.
In the case of a request for information that is not made in writing, we ask for your understanding that we may require proof from you that you are the person you claim to be.
Furthermore, you have a right to rectification or deletion or to restriction of processing, insofar as you are entitled to this by law.
Finally, you have a right to object to processing within the scope of the law.
A right to data portability also exists within the framework of the data protection legal requirements.
- DELETION OF DATA
We delete personal data in principle when there is no need for further storage. A requirement may exist in particular if the data is still needed to fulfill contractual services, to check and grant or ward off warranty and, if applicable, guarantee claims. In the case of statutory retention obligations, deletion will only be considered after expiry of the respective retention obligation.
- RIGHT OF COMPLAINT TO A SUPERVISORY AUTHORITY
You have the right to complain about the processing of personal data by us to a supervisory authority for data protection.
- CHANGES TO THIS DATA PROTECTION NOTICE
We revise this data protection notice in the event of changes to data processing or other occasions that make this necessary. You will always find the current version on this website.
