6. Applications / application process
Via the Website you can apply for a job at different subsidiaries of AUTO1 Group (hereinafter: the ”AUTO1 Subsidiaries“).
a. Processing of Applicants’ Data
AUTO1 Group collects the personal data that the applicant has provided via the online applicants’ portal (hereinafter the “Applicants’ Data”).
Responsibility for carrying out the application process as well as processing the application lies with AUTO1 Global Services GmbH & Co. KG, a subsidiary of AUTO1 Group, (hereinafter: “AUTO1 Global“). For this purpose AUTO1 Group transmits the Applicants’ Data to AUTO1 Global. The Applicants’ Data is only used for purposes of the application process.
In addition, AUTO1 Group may forward the Applicants’ Data to the AUTO1 Subsidiary to which the applicant is applying. Prior to any transmission of the Applicants’ Data, the applicants’ attention is explicitly drawn to the processing of the Applicants’ Data by AUTO1 Global and the forwarding of their Applicants’ Data to AUTO1 Global and to the respective responsible AUTO1 Subsidiary, whereupon the applicants give their express consent in that regard. This consent is the legal basis for this processing according to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. Without that express consent by the applicants the application process cannot be started.
Applicants may revoke their consent at any time with effect for the future by sending an email to email@example.com. Such revocation of consent constitutes a withdrawal of an applicant’s application.
b. Collection of personal data from other sources
If the applicant has an active profile on an application portal such as Xing, Stepstone or similar professional platforms and discloses this to the AUTO1 Group as part of the application process, AUTO1 Group may also receive and collect personal data from this as part of the application process.
c. Storage of Applicants’ Data at SmartRecruiters
For purposes of the application process, we use the software of SmartRecruiters GmbH, Wilhelmstraße 118 10963 Berlin (hereinafter: “SmartRecruiters“).
For this purpose, Applicants’ Data is stored and processed on the servers of SmartRecruiters in Germany and the EU. AUTO1 Group has carefully chosen SmartRecruiters. The protection of the Applicants’ Data has been ensured by way of a contract with SmartRecruiters regarding contract data processing, under which SmartRecruiters processes the personal data only when commissioned to do so by AUTO1 Group and according to its instructions.
SmartRecruiters relies on the services provided by SendGrid Inc., 1801 California Street, Suite 500 Denver, CO 80202, USA (hereinafter: “SendGrid“) in order to facilitate the sending and receipt of emails to and from applicants via the software of SmartRecruiters. In that context, Applicants’ Data is transmitted to servers of SendGrid in the US and thus to a country outside the EU or the European Economic Area.
The legal basis for this processing activity is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest is to use an external service provider to provide an effective application process.
d. Erasure of Applicants’ Data
Applicants’ Data is usually erased automatically at the latest 6 months after the application process has been concluded. Between the completion of the application and recruitment process and the erasure, the data is stored for evidentiary purposes. The legal basis for this processing activity is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The overriding legitimate interest follows from the aforementioned processing purpose.
Applicants can sign up for a newsletter to receive regular information about vacancies and other topics. If an applicant signs up for a newsletter and thereby becomes a member of the AUTO1 Talent Pool, AUTO1 Group will use the applicant's e-mail address to send the respective newsletter. AUTO1 Group uses a so-called double-opt-in procedure for newsletter registration in order to prevent unauthorised sign-ups on behalf of third parties and to ensure proper sign-ups to the newsletter. That means AUTO1 Group will send to the applicants a confirmation e-mail asking them to confirm their registration after they initially have signed-up in the registration form. AUTO1 Group will store the email address provided in order to send the newsletter until the applicants unsubscribe or AUTO1 Group stops sending the newsletter. The legal basis for this processing activity is a consent according to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR.
Applicants can withdraw the consent at any time with effect for the future. In this case AUTO1 Group will no longer send the newsletter. If AUTO1 Group receives a withdrawal from an applicant, the corresponding personal contact data will be added to a blocking list. This ensures that AUTO1 no longer sends unwanted advertising to applicants.. The legal basis for this processing activity is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.
f. “Refer-a-friend” program
Our employees as well as external visitors to our website have the opportunity to recommend applicants for certain positions. The prerequisite is that the applicant agrees to this and the recommending person has credibly demonstrated the applicant's consent to us. If applicants decide to apply for the recommended position, the applicant's personal data will be processed in accordance with the regular application process (see section 6). In this case, we process the personal data for the purpose of carrying out the application process. If the application was successful, we use the applicant data also to pay the recommending person the agreed bonus. This is done on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in recruiting new employees
7. Transfer of personal data to external service providers
AUTO1 Group receives assistance from outside service providers for certain technical data analysis, processing or storage processes (e.g. to obtain aggregated, non-personal statistics from data bases or for the storage of backup copies). These service providers are carefully selected and meet high data protection and data security standards. They are obligated to maintain strict confidentiality and process personal data only when commissioned to do so by AUTO1 Group and according to AUTO1 Group’s instructions. The legal basis for the involvement of such service providers is Article 28 GDPR.
AUTO1 Group cooperates with companies and other entities which provide specialized expertise with regard to special areas (e.g. tax consultants, legal counsel, accounting firms, logistics companies). These entities are either legally or contractually obliged to maintain confidentiality. If a transmission of personal data to these entities is necessary, the legal basis is, depending on the respective kind of cooperation, Article 6(1)(b) or, (f) GDPR.
If we transfer personal data to recipients outside the European Union or the European Economic Area (so-called "third countries"), we ensure that the appropriate level of data protection is guaranteed in the respective third country or by the respective recipient in the third country. The transfer may be based on an "adequacy decision" of the European Commission or appropriate safeguards, such as EU standard contractual clauses or binding corporate rules.

11. Google Analytics
This Website uses Google Analytics.
Google Analytics is a web-analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, compilation and analysis of data regarding the behavior of visitors to webpages. A web-analysis service collects, among other things, data as to the question from which webpage a Data Subject has arrived on a webpage (known as a referrer), which sub-sites of the website were accessed or how often and for which length of stay a sub-site was viewed. A web analysis is primarily used to optimize a webpage and to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google-Analytics component is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. Google LLC has been certified under the Privacy-Shield frame-work and thereby offers a guarantee that it is in compliance with European data protec-tion law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
For web analysis via Google Analytics AUTO1 Group uses the suffix “_gat._anonymizeIp”. By means of this suffix, the IP address of the internet connection of the Data Subject is truncated and anonymized by Google if our Website is accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another contracting state of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google-Analytics component is the analysis of the flow of visitors on the Website. Google uses the data and information collected, among other things, to analyze the use of the Website in order to compile online reports for us that show the activities on the Website and to provide additional services connected to the use of the Website.
Google Analytics uses what is known as “cookies”, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of how you have used the website.
Each time that one of the individual pages of this Website — which is operated by the controller responsible for the processing and on which a Google-Analytics component has been integrated — is accessed, the internet browser on the IT system of the Data Subject is automatically induced by the respective Google-Analytics component to transmit data to Google for purposes of online analysis. In the context of this technical process, Google will learn of personal data — such as the IP address of the Data Subject —, which enables Google, among other things, to trace the provenance of the visitors and clicks and as a result to allow commissions to be invoiced.
By means of the cookie, personal data — for example the time of access, the place from which our Website was accessed, and the number of times that the Data Subject visited our Website — is stored. Each time our Website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the Data Subject, is transferred to Google in the US. This personal data is stored by Google in the US. Google potentially transmits this personal data, which was collected via the technical process, to third parties.
As has already been set out above, the Data Subject may, at any time, prevent our Website from placing any cookies by making a corresponding adjustment to the settings of the internet browser used, and thereby permanently object to the placing of cookies. Such an adjustment to the settings of the internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the IT system of the Data Subject. In addition, a cookie that has already been placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.
For more information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google please see https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html.
Google Analytics is explained in more detail at https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

10. Erasure and blocking of personal data

The purpose of the Facebook Pixel is to analyze and optimize our services.

The Facebook Pixel is integrated directly by Facebook when you visit our website and can save a cookie on your device. If you log in to Facebook or visit Facebook while logged in, the visit of our website will be noted in your profile. By calling up the cookie from your browser, Facebook can recognize whether a Facebook ad was successful, e.g. led to an online purchase. This allows us to record the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes.
The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in making our offer and our website better known via social networks.
This website uses Mouseflow, a web analytics tool provided by Mouseflow ApS, Flaesketorvet 68, 1711 Copenhagen, Denmark (hereinafter "Mouseflow"), to record randomly selected individual visits (with anonymized IP address only).
