Data Privacy Policy

We, Chrono24 GmbH, Haid-und-Neu-Str. 18, 76131 Karlsruhe, Germany (hereinafter referred to as “Chrono24”), operate the online website under about.chrono24.com. We are therefore responsible for the collection, processing and use of your personal data within the meaning of the German Data Privacy Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG). The correct handling of your personal data is particularly important to us. We are therefore pleased to provide you with information on how your personal data is handled in relation to this website. If you use the online marketplace operated by us, you can find information concerning data privacy and protection here.

We offer you the possibility to use a mobile device to access our platform or to use our services either via a mobile application (app) or via a website optimized for mobile devices. The provisions of this Data Privacy Policy shall also apply to mobile access and the use of mobile devices. Reference is made to this Data Privacy Policy in all mobile applications and on all websites optimized for mobile devices.

We use your personal data in compliance with the applicable data privacy provisions. Below we will describe what data we collect, how we use it and what rights you have in terms of our use of your data:

1. Scope and Purpose of the Collection, Processing and Use of Personal Data when Visiting our Website

When you visit our website, our servers temporarily save every access in a log file. The following data is automatically recorded without any action on your part and stored until such time as the profile is deleted automatically:

  • the IP address of the accessing computer,
  • the date and time of access,
  • the name and URL of the accessed file,
  • the website from which you accessed our website (referrer),
  • the operating system of your computer and the browser that you use.

This data is collected and processed for the purposes of facilitating use of our website (creating the connection), guaranteeing long-term system security and stability and optimizing our web service, and for internal statistical purposes. The IP address will be evaluated only in the event of attacks on our network infrastructure, for statistical purposes and to assert or defend against legal claims.

In addition, we also use cookies and Google Analytics (including the functions from Universal Analytics) during visits to our website. You can find more detailed information on this in Sections 7 and 9.

2. Use of the Application Form

On our website, you have the opportunity to apply online for advertised positions or pro-actively apply for other positions. To this end, we keep an application form available online on our website. If you want to apply, you must enter the following mandatory information about yourself:

  • Salutation, last name, first name,
  • Date of birth,
  • Address,
  • E-mail addresses and telephone numbers.

Entering further information, such as the preferred language of communication or a title, is voluntary.

In addition, information concerning the application must be provided. The earliest possible starting date and your salary expectations are included here.

Furthermore, application documents can be uploaded via the application form. In any case, a letter of application is required. However, there is also the opportunity to upload your own resume and other documents as evidence of your qualifications.

Your information and uploaded documents will be transfered by us in our application management system for the purpose of your application and of possibly contacting you, and they will be processed using this system for a decision concerning your application. If we are unable to consider your application, your data will be deleted immediately upon notice being sent to you, unless you have declared your consent to its further use (see Section 3).

3. Applicant Pool

If you have given your consent, your application will be stored in our applicant pool for no more than one year. This allows us to take you into account at a later date. Should new positions open up with us, the applicant pool will be automatically searched for suitable candidates. This may mean that we will contact you to see if you are interested in a position with us that, in our view, suits you.

You can, at any time, revoke your consent to your application being included in the applicant pool. In this case, your application will be immediately deleted from the applicant pool and will no longer be available to us. To revoke your consent, send an e-mail stating such to jobs@chrono24.com.

4. Transfer of Data to Third Parties for Contractual Purposes

We will transfer your personal data to third parties only if you have expressly agreed to this, if we are under a legal obligation to do so, or if this is required in order to assert our rights, in particular to enforce claims arising from the contractual relationship.

Transfer to third parties for other purposes will not take place.

5. Right to Information, Correction, Blocking and Deletion

You have a right to information regarding the personal data stored under your name as well as a right to correct incorrect data, or to block and delete such data.

For information on your personal data, to have incorrect data corrected, to have data blocked or deleted, or for further questions on the use of your personal data, please contact:

6. Data Security

We use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data stored by us against manipulation, partial or total loss, and unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are being continually improved in line with technological developments.

We also take in-house data protection very seriously. Our employees and the service providers commissioned by us are obligated to maintain confidentiality and comply with data privacy provisions.

7. Cookies

Cookies help in many different ways to make your visit to our platform easier, more comfortable and more intuitive. Cookies are alpha-numerical information files that your web browser automatically stores on the hard drive of your computer when you visit our Internet site. Cookies do not harm the hard drive on your computer.

We use cookies, for example, to provide our website in your preferred language.

The use of the cookies does not allow us to obtain new personal data about you as an online visitor. The majority of Internet browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser to reject cookies or to notify you whenever you receive a new cookie.

Deactivation of cookies can lead to you not being able to use all of the functions of our platform.

8. Links

This Data Privacy Policy does not cover websites that are linked to from our website. We have no influence over whether our data privacy and security standards are upheld by these sites. The operators of linked sites are solely responsible for the content thereof.

9. Google Web Analytics

a) Google Analytics

To shape our website according to user needs and to continually optimize our service, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Within this context, pseudonymous usage profiles are created and small text files that are saved on your computer (“cookies” see Section 7) are used. The information concerning your use of this website that is generated by cookies, includes

  • browser type/version,
  • operating system used,
  • referrer URL (the page visited previously),
  • host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • time of server access,

and is transferred to servers in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide further services associated with website and Internet use for the purposes of market research and needs-based design of these web pages. This information may also be forwarded to third parties as appropriate, insofar as this is prescribed by law or insofar as these parties process the data on behalf of the commissioning party. Your IP address will not in any case be associated with other data from Google. IP addresses are anonymized to exclude all possibility of such association (IP masking).

The user can prevent the installation of cookies by adjusting his/her browser accordingly; however, we must point out that in this case not all functions of the website may be available to the user to their full extent.

You can also prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookies relating to your usage of the website (including your IP address) and their processing by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on.

As an alternative to a browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent such collection by Google by clicking on this link. There is an opt-out cookie that prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must re-install the opt-out cookie.

Further information about Google Analytics can be found on the support pages of Google.

b) Google Universal Analytics

We use Google Analytics, including the functions of Google Universal Analytics. This enables us to optimize the analysis of the visits to our site. Google Universal Analytics allows us to analyze the activities of our sites across multiple devices (e.g. access with laptops or tablets). This is made possible by assigning an user ID to an user. Such an assignment will occur if you register for an account on the marketplace operated by chrono24.com or log into your account.

This user ID together with the behavior of the user on our marketplace during the assignment is forwarded to the Google servers. If you visit this website during a session, your behavior on this website will also be transmitted. However, no personal data or information will be forwarded to Google. The duration of a session does not exceed four hours.

Google then analyzes the user’s behavior for us and provides us with reports about the user’s activities. We personally create no user profiles from the reports received by Google that would enable specific users and their personal data to be identified.

Although additional functions are added to Google Analytics with Universal Analytics, this does not mean that a limitation of data protection measures, such as IP masking or browser add-on, are connected (see 9a).

Further information about Google Universal Analytics can be found in the Google Analytics help pages.
