We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for Falkenstein Personalberatung. The use of the Internet pages of the Falkenstein Personalberatung is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of the Falkenstein Personalberatung via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

This includes the careful, strictly confidential and sensitive handling in accordance with applicable data protection regulations of the EU General Data Protection Regulation of all personal data to protect privacy.

With the following instructions, we inform you about the processing of your personal data by Falkenstein Personalberatung and the rights to which you are entitled under data protection law. Personal data is any data with which you can be personally identified.

The provider points out that data transmission on the Internet (eg communication by e-mail) may have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible. We only use servers that are located in the EU.

Whose data is collected?

The persons affected by the data processing can be divided into the following categories: Business partners, customers, applicants, interested parties as well as other visitors to our online offer. The data subjects are hereinafter collectively referred to as “users”.

How do we collect your data?

On the one hand, your data is collected by you providing it to us. This can be, for example, data that you send by e-mail or transmit to us by telephone.

Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit our website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of page view). The collection of this data takes place automatically as soon as you enter our website.

What data is collected?

Personal data processed in the course of our business activities include inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), contract data (e.g. subject matter of contract, term) payment data (e.g. bank details, payment history), contact data (e.g. telephone numbers, e-mail addresses), application data (e.g. first and last names, qualifications, application documents (cover letter, resume, references, certificates, etc.), professional wishes and preferences, salary expectations, willingness to relocate and travel, time availability), usage data (e.g. the websites visited on our online offer, interest in our services), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses).

For what purpose do we use your data?

Some of the personal data is required to answer contact inquiries and to communicate with users of our range of services. We require other data for providing qualified advice to customers and applicants and for filling vacancies at customer companies with suitable applicants.

Legal basis of data processing

We process your personal data in compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), the Federal Data Protection Act and all other applicable laws.

If you have given us your consent to process your personal data for one or more specific purposes, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) a) and Art. 7 DSGVO.

The legal basis for processing to protect the legitimate interests of our company or a third party is Art. 6 (1) f) DSGVO, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, which require the protection of personal data, prevail.

What rights do you have regarding your data?

You have the right to request confirmation as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed and to information about this data, as well as further information and a copy of the data in accordance with Art. 15 DSGVO.

You have the right, in accordance with Art. 16 DSGVO, to request that the data concerning you be completed or that incorrect data concerning you be corrected.

In accordance with Art. 17 of the GDPR, you have the right to demand that data concerning you be deleted without delay, or alternatively, in accordance with Art. 18 of the GDPR, to demand restriction of the processing of the data.

In accordance with Article 17 of the GDPR, you have the right to demand that data concerning you be deleted without delay, or alternatively, in accordance with Article 18 of the GDPR, to demand restriction of the processing of the data.

You also have the right, pursuant to Art. 77 DSGVO, to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.

Right of withdrawal

Sie haben das Recht, erteilte Einwilligungen gem. Art. 7 Abs. 3 DSGVO mit Wirkung für die Zukunft zu widerrufen.

Right of objection

You may object to the future processing of data concerning you in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO at any time. The objection can be made in particular against the processing for purposes of direct advertising.

Data deletion/duration of data storage

The data stored by us will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for its intended purpose (e.g. completion of an application procedure) and the deletion is not opposed by any statutory retention obligations or other legitimate interests of Falkenstein Personalberatung – for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG) – or the user has expressly consented to longer storage.

If an applicant has indicated his or her consent to the storage of his or her personal data with the declaration of consent under data protection law, this data will be deleted as soon as the applicant revokes his or her consent to data storage vis-à-vis Falkenstein Personalberatung. Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected. Deletion may also be carried out by Falkenstein Personalberatung, e.g. because the successful placement of an applicant is no longer expected.


When contacting us (phone / e-mail), your information including your contact details will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data transmitted to us is therefore based exclusively on your declaration of consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO. You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you have transmitted to us will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Security measures

Falkenstein Personalberatung takes organizational, contractual and technical security measures in accordance with the state of the art to ensure compliance with data protection laws and to protect the data we process against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons.

The security measures include in particular the encrypted transmission of data between your browser and our server. Our website uses SSL or TLS encryption to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every user is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, e.g. by telephone.

Disclosure of data to third parties and third countries

Data is only passed on to third parties within the framework of legal requirements. We only pass on users’ data to third parties if, for example, this is necessary on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. DSGVO is necessary for contractual purposes or on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO in the economic and effective operation of our business.

In principle, application data will only be forwarded to the internal departments of our company responsible for the application process. Application data will only be forwarded to external recipients or other third parties if the applicant has expressly declared his or her consent to the forwarding of his or her data in advance. Personal data will not be passed on to third parties beyond this.

If we use subcontractors to provide our services, we take suitable legal precautions and appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure the protection of personal data in accordance with the relevant statutory provisions.

We only transfer personal data to service providers and other third parties outside the European Economic Area (EEA) under certain conditions: The user has expressly declared his or her consent to the transfer of data to a third country, or the EU Commission must confirm an adequate level of data protection for the respective third country, or other appropriate data protection guarantees must be in place (e.g., binding corporate data protection provisions of the EU standard contractual clauses).

Online presences in social media

In addition to our corporate website, we maintain online presences within 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 there. When calling up the respective networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and data processing guidelines of their respective operators apply.

If users communicate with us within the social networks and platforms, e.g. by sending us messages, we process the users’ data.

Collection of access data and server log files

Each time you access our website, the provider automatically records information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. The stored information includes the name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

This data is not merged with other data sources.

For security reasons (e.g. for the clarification of abuse or fraud) log file information is stored for the maximum permissible duration and then deleted. Data whose further storage is required for evidentiary purposes is excluded from deletion until final clarification of the respective incident.

Links to other websites

Our offer contains links to external web sites of third parties, on whose contents we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for these external contents. The respective provider or operator of the sites is always responsible for the content of the linked sites. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking. However, a permanent control of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. If we become aware of any infringements, we will remove such links immediately.

Change of the privacy policy

We expressly reserve the right to amend this data protection declaration in order to adapt it to changing legal situations or in the event of changes to the service and data processing. However, this only applies with regard to declarations on data processing. Insofar as user consents are required or components of the data protection declaration contain provisions of the contractual relationship with the users, the changes will only be made with the consent of the users.

Users are requested to inform themselves regularly about the content of the data protection declaration.

Person responsible for data processing

The responsible party within the meaning of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), other data protection laws applicable in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is
