Experteer is particularly concerned about keeping user data secure and protected. Experteer undertakes to comply with the legal data protection provisions and the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG) and the Teleservices Data Protection Act (Telemediengesetz, TMG) in particular.
We herewith notify you in accordance with § 33 (1) BDSG that Experteer saves and electronically processes user data in machine-readable form. Personal data is collected, saved, processed and used as part of the contractual provision of services. Personal data is data that contains details on personal or material circumstances of a specific or specifiable user. User-uploaded application documents (e.g., cover letter, resume) are stored for 1-year. All such data is saved electronically. Data is also recorded when Internet pages are called up.
The user is solely responsible for ensuring the confidentiality of his or her log in or access information (email address and password).
Depending on the settings of the user, different types of recruiters (headhunters, corporate recruiters – in each case via Experteer-Partnernetwork as well (cf. below)) have access to the personal data which the user enters to present his profile. Thereby, the user can individually determine at any time to which type of recruiter his profile is to be displayed in full or anonymously. For the profile being amenable to more recruiters, in certain circumstances data will be passed to other partners of Experteer in the recruiting environment as well (e.g. job web portal or operators of recruiting software – cf. the effective list of Experteer-Partnernetwork). Experteer is not responsible for the confidential treatment of user / application data by the recruiters (headhunters and/or corporate recruiters). In connection with his profile settings, hereby the user consents to the transmission and disclosure of the profile data, as described in this Section 4.
The personal settings entered by a user will be saved. This guarantees that all users get the same settings for each new session (i.e. each time they log on again). Experteer uses so called cookies for this. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. We may use session ID cookies and persistent cookies to enhance our service to you. For the session ID cookie, once you close your browser, the cookie simply terminates. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on your hard drive for an extended period of time. Persistent cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions.
If a user accesses the services of Experteer via a partner site (affiliate), the anonymised data is saved in a cookie. These cookies do not contain personal user data but are only used to maintain the partner program.
The user consents to Experteer using his anonymised user data for the purposes of consulting, advertising, market research and for improving and designing the service in a demand-oriented manner. In accordance with § 15 Abs. 3 TMG, any user can object to the pseudonymous user data being transmitted to third parties for the purposes of consulting, advertising and market research as well as to an anonymised usage profile being created. The right of objection can be exercised by sending an E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The user gives their express consent to receive e-mail newsletters. These newsletters are an integral part of the service and regularly inform the user about current, labor-market relevant topics and news regarding Experteer and offers from its partners. In addition, member-specific messages are sent. A newsletter may be canceled at any time by using the link supplied at the end of each newsletter or in the user’s account under "My Account" / "e-mails from Experteer".
By registering, the user declares his consent for his data to be used in accordance with the provisions above.
You are entitled to view the personal data we have saved in relation to you at any time and free of charge. This information is provided in writing. Please send the written request for information together with a copy of your identification card to Experteer GmbH, Lenbachplatz 3, D-80333 München, Germany.
