I. General information on data processing
1. Scope of the processing of personal data
We collect and use personal data of our website users and other data subjects (such as service providers, suppliers, customers) only to the extent necessary to provide our website, our content and our services.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations of personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.
When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
If the processing of data requires the storage of information in your terminal device or access to information already stored in the terminal device, Section 25 (1), (2) TTDSG is the legal basis for this.
3. Data deletion and storage duration
The personal data of the data subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies. In addition, storage may take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.
4. General contact
You can contact us by e-mail, telephone or letter. In this case, your information and attachments from the request, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us solely for the purpose of processing the request and in the event of follow-up questions. If you contact us by e-mail, your e-mail address and the date and time of sending will be processed. If you contact us by telephone, your telephone number will be processed. If you write to us by letter, we process your address data and date of receipt. In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties.
The legal basis for processing the data is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. Our interest in answering your request outweighs your interest; since you are writing to us, an answer is also in your interest, and you are aware that we need to process your data to answer your request. The connection data is collected in order to be able to process and respond to your request and to counteract misuse of the contact options
If the contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case when the respective communication with the data subject has ended. The communication is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter concerned has been conclusively clarified.
5. Recipients of your data
Within our company, those departments have access to your data that require it for the fulfillment of their processing purposes. This also applies to the service providers and vicarious agents we use. All departments and persons who work with your data are obligated to maintain data secrecy and have been made aware of the sensitive handling of personal data.
Your data will only be passed on outside the company if this is in accordance with data protection regulations. This is the case if the transfer is necessary for the fulfillment of the purposes or if we have obtained your consent for the use and transfer of the data. The following recipients may receive your data:

- Government agencies/authorities, insofar as this is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation. The legal basis for the disclosure is then Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DSGVO.

b) Right to rectification
You have a right to rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the controller if the personal data processed concerning you is inaccurate or incomplete. The controller shall carry out the rectification without undue delay.
c) Right to restriction of processing
Under the following conditions, you can request the restriction of the processing of personal data concerning you:
if you contest the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of the personal data;
the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need them for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, or
if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21(1) DSGVO and it is not yet clear whether the controller's legitimate grounds override your grounds.
If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a Member State.
If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.
d) Right to deletion
You may request from the controller that the personal data concerning you be deleted without delay, and the controller is obliged to delete such data without delay, if one of the following reasons applies:
The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
You revoke your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) or Art. 9(2)(a) DSGVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.
The erasure of the personal data concerning you is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.

Information to third parties
If the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to erase it pursuant to Article 17(1) of the GDPR, it shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, having regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform controllers that process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested that they erase all links to or copies or replications of such personal data.
The right to erasure does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary to
to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Art. 9(2)(h) and (i) and Art. 9(3) DSGVO;
for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes, or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, insofar as the right referred to in Section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing, or
to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
e) Right to information
If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the controller, the controller is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you has been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
You have the right to be informed about these recipients by the data controller.
f) Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that
the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and
the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
The right to data portability does not apply to 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.
g) Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from their particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you that is carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.
You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society services - notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC - to exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.
h) 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 consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
i) Automated decision in individual cases including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you.
This does not apply if the decision
is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the responsible person,
is permitted by legislation of the Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject and that legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests; or
is done with your express consent.
However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9(1) of the GDPR, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (g) applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms of, and the legitimate interests of, the data subject, which shall include, at least, the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
j) Right to complain to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
II. Data processing when visiting the website www.tivola.de
1. Provision of the website and creation of log files
Each time our website is called up, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. The following data is collected for a limited period of time:
Information about the browser type and version used and language
The operating system of the user
The Internet service provider of the user
The IP address of the user
Date and time of access
The amount of data transferred
The message whether the call was successful
The GMT time zone difference
Websites from which the user's system accesses our Internet site
Websites that are called up by the user's system via our website
The data is stored in the log files of our system. This data is only required for the analysis of any malfunctions and is deleted within seven days at the latest. The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. 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 storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context, and conclusions about your person are not drawn. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.

III. Supplementary data protection information for applicants
We collect and process personal data from applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. The legal basis is the overriding legitimate interests of the person applying and of us in an exchange for the purpose of initiating an employment relationship (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). The processing may also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends corresponding application documents electronically, for example by e-mail. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. The legal basis is then Art. 6 para 1 b) DSGVO in conjunction with Art. 88 DSGVO and § 26 BDSG and, in the case of processing sensitive data in accordance with Art. 9 DSGVO, your consent; Art. 6 para 1 lit a) DSGVO. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller conflict with such deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
