4. Legal Basis of the Data Processing

4.1. Contractual basis pursuant to Article. 6 (1)  b GDPR

5.1. Provision of contractually required services to customers and employees

6. Cooperation and Indication of Data

Indicating personal data is voluntary as long as processing personal data by using our website does not result in the establishment, execution, or termination of a contractual relationship or the fulfillment of contractual or legal obligations. Not providing specific data may lead to limited usability of the website and possibly other services.

As part of the initiation, launch, execution, and termination of a contractual relationship, fulfilling contractual or legal obligations between you and us is necessary to collect and process specific data for the purposes mentioned above. Not providing such data may lead to an impairment that can prohibit or restrict contractual cooperation or render it infeasible.

7. Transmission of Data

Your personal data will only be transmitted if this is necessary in fulfilling the contract, if you explicitly gave your consent, if legally required, or if we have a legitimate interest to transfer the data. Access to your data will only be granted to those departments within our company that require it to fulfill contractual or legal obligations. Service providers whom we have contracted may also access the data.

The data transfer to external recipients is guaranteed to be in accordance with the legal data protection regulation and ensures that only necessary personal data will be

transmitted. A transfer may only be carried out if this is part of the contract fulfillment, mandated by legal regulations, if you gave your consent, or if we, as a company, are authorized to issue disclosure.

Provided those requirements are met, recipients of personal data may include:

Official authorities and institutions (e.g., taxation authorities, judicial authorities, or law enforcement agencies) upon the cause of a legal or regulatory obligation, such as social insurance agencies and pension insurance institutes

Accountants, tax consultants, lawyers

Service providers we consult with processing matters, such as payment service providers, payroll accounting, personnel administration, social media

In case of an external assignment, we ensure that the consulting service providers are subject to a thorough selection process and must comply with data protection regulations pursuant to Article 28 GDPR. As part of a frequent inspection for reasons of data protection by service

providers commissioned by us, we also verify that they adopt appropriate data protection measures for protecting the personal data, such as providing proper technical and organizational measures, and can guarantee their compliance.

The transfer of data is exclusively based on data transmitting arrangements pursuant to Article 28 of the GDPR (Processing on behalf), Article 26 of the GDPR (Shared responsibility), and, if applicable, transmissions to third countries following the requirements pursuant to Article 44 of the GDPR (see also section 5.1.).

7.1 Data Transmission to Third Countries

The data transmission to so-called third countries, i.e., places in non-EU jurisdictions or outside the European economic area, can only be carried out when specific requirements are met. Apart from a contractual or legal obligation, an appropriate safeguard for personal data protection is imperative.

The transmission of data to third countries is therefore only possible when, for instance:

Transmission is necessary for the proper implementation of contractual services. The data transmission described is only carried out if you book and pay for our PRODUCT service directly through our website.

According to tax law or upon reports to fight criminal offenses, there is a statutory obligation to report.

There is a legitimate interest on our part to transfer the data.

You have given your consent (this may depend on your agreement to use Cookies – i.e., if you have given your consent to not only use “essential” cookies, the data will be transmitted to Google Analytics. For more information, see the following section 6. Cookies).

Transmission to third countries can only be carried out when the third country possesses an adequate level of data protection according to an assessment by the European Commission. If there is no such decision, the

transmission of data to third countries can only be considered if there are “appropriate safeguards” – such as standard contractual clauses or binding internal data protection regulations (Binding Corporate Rules/BCR/Codes of Conduct and/or certifications) or if an exemption arises, such as consent.

CURALIE GMBH only allows a third country to collect and process data under the condition that legal or contractual permissions are subject to specific requirements according to Article 44 ff of the GDPR. This means that the processing is carried out, for example, based on officially approved pre-defined contracts (so-called “standard contractual clauses”).

The current jurisdiction of the ECJ (ECJ, verdict Schrems II dated 07/16/2020; file number C-311/18) changed the legal basis of data transmission for our users. Additional measures may be required that result from the implementation of obligations due to recommendations 1/2020 of the European Data

Protection Board (EDBP) to add transmission tools for guaranteeing a federal protection level of personal data. Please note that using our services may lead to data transmission and analytical services by Google Maps, Google AdWords, and may result in subsequent processing of usage data by the respective services in the USA and other third countries in which a service provider is located.

The basis for processing activities is your explicit declaration of consent which you have granted us through our cookie banner. Your consent warrants such data processing in this case by way of exception pursuant to Article 49 section 1 a) of the GDPR. We hereby inform you that the USA and other countries without an adequate ruling of the European Commission do not possess a comparable level of data protection like the EU and EEA. Therefore, it is possible that, based on legal authorization,  government agencies in these countries can access your personal data without us or you noticing. Asserting your legal rights may currently not be possible in these countries and do not appear promising.

8.8 Detailed information on the use of Google Ads

CURALIE GMBH uses Google Ads services (formerly Adwords) on their website. Google Ads is an online advertising program developed by Google.

interests. In order to offer target-oriented ads after they visit our website, we analyze the users’ interactions, e.g., the users’ interest in our services. Google records the number of users who visit certain Google services or websites in the Google display network. This number marked as “cookie” records the number of user visits. The number serves as the unique identification of a specific end device web browser and not as the identification of a person. Personal data will not be stored.

10.9 Social Media Representation

We use publicly accessible social media networks in order to extend our range. Social networks, such

as Facebook, can extensively analyze your user behavior as soon as you access their website. Accessing our social media sites will trigger numerous data-related processes.

In this context, we process your data to get in touch with you upon requests or postings, as well as learn user preferences (e.g., number of followers, number of views, user statistics grouped under age, geography, and language), and extend and adjust the services for target groups. This is a legitimate interest (Article 6, subsection 1 f) of the GDPR). The analytic process may have a different legal basis than stated by the providers of the social networks.

When you are logged into your social media account while accessing our social media pages, the provider of the social media portal can associate your visit with your user account. However, your personal data may also be accessible if you are logged out or do not have an account on this particular portal. Data acquisition occurs by collecting your IP

address or cookies saved on your end device. The network operators can create user profiles and store your preferences and interests.

Please note that we cannot trace all network processes. Depending on the provider, the operators may perform further procedures. For example, the social network portal and other sites can suggest interest-based advertising. Please see the terms and privacy statement of the respective social network portals for more details.

The platform operator and we are jointly responsible for certain processing operations (see 14. Rights of the Data Subject) that affect our specific site. You can assert your rights against our company and the platform operators (e.g., LinkedIn, Xing,…). Please note that despite the joint responsibility, we do not influence the network portals’ data processing operations. Our options are primarily based on the corporate policy of the respective provider. This also applies to the collection of personal data. While we delete

the data collected right after the purpose achievement, after the withdrawal of consent, or after the omission of the legal basis for data collection, we have no influence on the data storage and process the platform operators have completed for their purposes. Please refer to the operators of the social networks. 

11. RECRUITING AND CANDIDATE MANAGEMENT

According to Article 88, §25 subsection 1, in conjunction with subsection 8 of the BDSG, we collect your personal data to consider your qualification for a position (or possibly a different open position in our company) and conduct the application procedure. This procedure only applies to the extent necessary to establish an employment relationship with us. Your data will strictly be treated confidentially for the sole purpose of processing your application, i.e., recruiting, establishing an employment contract, or supporting internal job allocations. In this context, it is necessary that the personnel

department has access to your personal data. In case the data should be required for legal prosecution after completing the application process, data processing can occur based on the requirements of Article 6, subsection 1 f of the GDPR. Our interest then lies in the assertion or defense against claims. In response to a job advertisement, your application’s data will be deleted after 6 months in the event of rejection.

If you agree to further storage of your personal data, we will add them to our applicant pool and delete them after two (2) years at the latest after the most recent contact. You have the right to withdraw your consent anytime.

If you get a position as part of the application process, we will transfer the data to a personal file.

We will forward your application data to external providers as part of the order processing. However, there may be a legal obligation to transfer the data according to Article 6 subsection 1 S.1 c) of the GDPR.

On rare occasions (such as cost reimbursements during the application procedure), we will pass on your data with your consent (e.g., to our bank).

After receiving your application, a personnel representative will view your application data. Suitable applications will be forwarded internally to the department heads of the respective open position. After that, the further process will be coordinated. Generally, the personnel with access to your data are in charge of the correct application process.

12. CONTACT FORM

On our website, we provide contact forms for electronic mails. The data you enter will be transmitted to us, processed, and stored accordingly. By using the contact form, the data in the entry mask will be transferred to us and partly stored. In this context, the data will not be forwarded to third parties outside CURALIE GMBH. The data will exclusively serve the correspondence.

The contact form is regularly used as part

of the contract initiation (Article 6, subsection 1 b) or different legitimate concerns (legitimate interest, Article 6, subsection 1 f).

Once the processing purpose is achieved, we will delete your data, provided there is no conflict with a legal obligation. Your right to erasure and other subjected rights remain.

13. AUTOMATED PROCESSING

There will be no automated processing of personal data that may impair your rights and freedoms in any form or have a legal effect in any other way.

14. DATA SECURITY / TOMS

In order to safeguard the processing security of personal data by our service providers and us, we implemented technical and organizational measures pursuant to Article 32 of the GDPR. Our employees and the commissioned service providers we carefully selected are without exception obligated to maintain confidentiality and comply with the provisions of the data

protection law. In addition, we take appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data from loss, alteration, damage, or unauthorized access and disclosure. This includes

pseudonymization and encryption of personal data;

procedures to ensure confidentiality, integrity, availability, and resilience of the systems and services related to processing;

restoring the availability and accessibility of personal data in the event of a physical or technical incident;

procedures to regularly inspect, assess and evaluate the effectiveness of technical and organizational measures to guarantee processing security.

15. DATA STORAGE

Your data will be stored for the duration of the contractual relationship with you or with your employer or as necessary to provide our offers and services.

Additional storage of personal data is possible if we have a legitimate interest (e.g., postal marketing

after contract fulfillment).

A guaranteed erasure takes place at the end of the legal or contractual period – such as retention periods relating to fiscal or commercial law or deadlines resulting from the business process.

Data that is not subject to the legal obligation to retain will be deleted after completing its purpose. 

16. RIGHTS OF THE DATA SUBJECT

16.1 Right to obtain information, rectification, and erasure of data

The General Data Protection Regulation grants the right to obtain information upon written request on the storage of personal data (e.g., name, address, …) pursuant to Article 15 of the GDPR. The GDPR also grants the rectification (Article 16 of the GDPR) or erasure (Article 17 of the GDPR) of the respective data as part of the legal requirement.

The right to erasure expires as part of data stored in business processes; for example, the data becomes subject to the 

legal obligation to retain.

We will no longer process the data provided there are no compelling legitimate grounds for the processing.

Article 20 of the GDPR).
