Data processing and purpose of processing

The data you provide will only be processed for the purposes for which we have collected and received it. No further processing beyond this will take place.

Your data will be processed beyond the aforementioned purpose if the necessary legal requirements pursuant to Art. 6 (4) DSGVO exist. The relevant information obligations pursuant to Art. 13 (3) DSGVO and Art. 14 DSGVO are taken into account in this respect.

Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is, unless there are other specific legal provisions, Art. 6 DSGVO. The following possibilities come into consideration:

  • Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO).
  • Data processing for the fulfilment of contracts (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO)
  • Data processing on the basis of a balancing of interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO)
  • Data processing for the fulfilment of a legal obligation (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) DSGVO)

If the processing of your personal data was based on consent, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.

If the processing of the data was based on a consideration of interests, you as an individual have the right to object to the processing of the personal data, taking into account the requirements of Article 21 of the GDPR.

Duration of data storage

We process the data as long as this is necessary for the respective purpose.

Insofar as statutory retention obligations exist, such as in commercial law or tax law, the personal data in question will be stored for the duration of the retention obligation. After expiry of the retention obligation, it is checked whether there is a further need for processing. If there is no longer a need, the data will be deleted or destroyed.

As a matter of principle, we check data at regular intervals with regard to the need for further processing. Due to the volume of data, this check is carried out with regard to specific types of data or purposes of processing.

You can request information about the personal data we have stored about you at any time. In the event that data processing is not necessary, you may request the deletion or restriction of processing.

Passing on of data

Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the contract with you, if the passing on is permissible on the basis of a balancing of interests in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO, if we are legally obliged to pass on the data or if you have given your consent in this respect.

Place of data processing

We process your personal data exclusively in data centres in the European Union (EU).

Data subject rights

You have the right to obtain information about the personal data we process about you. In the case of a request for information that is not made in writing, we ask for your understanding that we may then require evidence from you to prove that you are the person you claim to be.

Furthermore, you have a right to correction or deletion or to restriction of processing, insofar as you are entitled to this by law. Furthermore, you have a right to object to processing within the scope of the law. The same applies to a right to data portability.

In particular, you have a right to object to the processing of your data in connection with direct marketing in accordance with Art. 21 (1) and (2) DSGVO, if this is carried out on the basis of a balancing of interests.

Contact details within the scope of the data subject rights can be found in the imprint. In addition, contact can be made via the following e-mail address: .
Right of complaint

You have the right to complain about the processing of personal data by us to a data protection supervisory authority.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information Collected Automatically.

In some cases, IBG collects information that does not personally identify you. This includes, for example, the type of Internet browser and operating system you are using, and the domain name of the website where you used a link to go to our website. When you access our website, information is automatically collected by the provider. This information, also referred to as server log files, is of a general nature and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

We only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. This data is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security. This data also enables us to improve our offer in a targeted manner. The legal basis in each case is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO (legitimate interest).

This includes:

  • Date and visit of the URL on which the visitor is located.
  • URL that the visitor visited immediately before
  • IP address and domain from which access is made
  • Browser used
  • Operating system used
  • Technical information about the visit (http method, http version, http status code, length of data transmitted)

Data processing in the context of the application

We offer you the opportunity to apply to us via the online application form. In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected as part of the application process. We assure you that the collection, processing and use of your data will be carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law and all other statutory provisions and that your data will be treated in strict confidence.

Scope and purpose of data collection
When you send us an application, we process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during interviews, etc.) to the extent that this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is Art. 88 DSGVO in conjunction with. § Section 26 (1) sentence 1 BDSG 2018, insofar as it concerns information that we request from you as part of the application process (name, contact details, date of birth, information on your professional qualifications and school education or information on further professional training). If you voluntarily provide us with further information, we will process this on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO). This consent can be revoked at any time. Your personal data will only be passed on within our company to persons who are involved in processing your application.

Furthermore, we may process personal data about you insofar as this is necessary for the defence of asserted legal claims against us arising from the application process. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DSGVO; the legitimate interest is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be stored in our data processing systems on the basis of Section 26 BDSG-neu and Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship.

What categories of personal data do we process?
We process data related to your application. This is general data about you (such as name, address and contact details, date of birth), information about your professional qualifications and school education or information about further professional training. We also process the application photos provided to us, if available.

What are the categories of recipients of personal data?
We do not transfer your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. We will only pass on your personal data collected as part of the application process to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO, Section 26 BDSG 2018,
  • the disclosure is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO and there is no reason to assume that you have an
  • overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data,
  • in the event that there is a legal obligation for the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DS-GVO, as well as
  • this is legally permissible and necessary according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b DS-GVO, Section 26 para. 1 sentence 1 BDSG 2018 for the establishment or processing of contractual relationships with you.

Furthermore, your data will be passed on to technical service providers on the basis of Art. 28 DS-GVO, who will use your data exclusively on our behalf and under no circumstances for their own business purposes. These are IT service providers, hosting providers or providers of applicant management systems. There are no plans to transfer your data to third countries outside the EU or the European Economic Area.

Retention period of data
If we are unable to make you a job offer, you reject a job offer, withdraw your application, revoke your consent to data processing or request us to delete the data, the data you have provided, including any remaining physical application documents, will be stored or retained (retention period) for a maximum of 6 months after completion of the application process in order to be able to trace the details of the application process in the event of discrepancies (Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO). If you have given us your consent to a longer storage period, we will include you in our talent pool. Your application will then be stored by us until revoked. You can, of course, revoke this consent at any time using the contact details provided in the imprint.

Is the provision of personal data necessary?
The provision of personal data is neither legally nor contractually required, nor are you obliged to provide us with your personal data. However, the provision of personal data is necessary for the conclusion of a contract of employment with us. This means that if you do not provide us with personal data when applying for a job, we cannot and will not enter into an employment relationship with you.

Does automated decision-making take place?
There is no automated decision in individual cases within the meaning of Art. 22 DSGVO, i.e. we evaluate your application personally and the decision on your application is not based exclusively on automated processing.

Data processing within the scope of the newsletter

If you subscribe to our company's newsletter, the data in the respective input mask will be transmitted to the controller. The registration for our newsletter is carried out in a so-called double opt-in procedure. After registration, you will receive an e-mail in which you are asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other people's e-mail addresses. When registering for the newsletter, the user's IP address and the date and time of registration are stored. This serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address of the person concerned. The data is not passed on to third parties. An exception exists if there is a legal obligation to pass on the data. The data is used exclusively for sending the newsletter. The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the data subject at any time. Likewise, consent to the storage of personal data can be revoked at any time. For this purpose, a corresponding link can be found in each newsletter. The legal basis for the processing of the data after the user has registered for the newsletter is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO if the user has given his consent. The legal basis for sending the newsletter as a result of the sale of goods or services is Article 7 (3) UWG.

Use of rapidmail
We use rapidmail to send newsletters. The provider is rapidmail GmbH, Wentzingerstraße, 21, 79106 Freiburg, Germany. Among other things, rapidmail is used to organise and analyse the dispatch of newsletters. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter is stored on rapidmail's servers in Germany. If you do not wish to have your data analysed by rapidmail, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. Furthermore, you can also unsubscribe directly on the website. For the purpose of analysis, the e-mails sent with rapidmail contain a so-called tracking pixel, which connects to the servers of rapidmail when the e-mail is opened. In this way, it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened. Furthermore, with the help of rapidmail, we can determine whether and which links in the newsletter message are clicked on. All links in the e-mail are so-called tracking links, with which your clicks can be counted. Depending on the font used for the respective newsletter, a connection to external servers such as Google Fonts takes place.

Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the processing of data after the user has registered for the newsletter is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) DSGVO if the user has given his consent. The data is not transferred to third countries.

Purpose of data processing
The purpose of collecting the user's e-mail address is to deliver the newsletter. We also use your e-mail address to send you a confirmation e-mail (double opt-in). We record the date and time of registration for abuse control purposes.

Duration of storage
The data stored by us within the scope of your consent for the purpose of the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of rapidmail after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area) remain unaffected by this.

Possibility of objection and removal
You have the option of revoking your consent to data processing at any time with effect for the future. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

Use of data within the framework of the contact form

If you contact us via the contact form or by e-mail, we store the personal details you provide in order to be able to answer your enquiry.

Use of data in the context of initiating a contract

If we receive your contact data (surname, first name, e-mail address, etc.) in connection with the sale of a product or service or as part of an initiation of contact and you have not objected to this, we reserve the right to use this contact data as part of pre-contractual measures or to maintain the business contact.

Use of data for postal advertising and your right to object

Furthermore, we reserve the right to store your first and last name, your postal address and - insofar as we have received this additional information from you within the framework of the contractual relationship - your title, academic degree, year of birth and your profession, industry or business name in summarised lists and to use them for our own advertising purposes, e.g. to send you interesting offers and information about our products by post. You can object to the storage and use of your data for these purposes at any time by sending a message to the contact option described in the imprint.

Data processing with the USA

The EU/US Privacy Shield has been declared invalid by the ECJ with immediate effect. As far as possible, we use European service providers and/or servers. In the case of data exchange with the United States, we only consider companies whose standard contractual clauses have been checked to ensure that their level of data protection is actually maintained.

Use of Google Analytics

Since the Hamburg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information agreed with Google on the basis of the resolution of the Düsseldorfer Kreis on the data-protection-compliant design of analysis procedures for measuring the reach of Internet offers, the data-protection-compliant and complaint-free use of Google Analytics is possible under certain conditions. It goes without saying that we adhere to these conditions. In particular, we would like to point out that the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" has been added to Google Analytics on this website in order to ensure anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

Please also note the following information on the use of Google Analytics:

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, by activating IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Use of Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, to control advertising. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through one interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not collect any personal data. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

Use of Google Maps

This website uses the product Google Maps by Google Inc. By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of automatically collected data by Google Inc, its agents and third parties. The terms of use of Google Maps can be found under "Terms of use of Google Maps" (

Privacy policy on the use and application of YouTube

The controller has integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all kinds of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.

The operating company of YouTube is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website operated by the data controller is called up and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at Within the scope of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google receive information about which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognises which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting when a sub-page containing a YouTube video is called up. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.

YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time as calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her YouTube account before accessing our website.

The data protection provisions published by YouTube, which can be accessed at, provide information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

Privacy policy on the use and application of Facebook

Within our website, content from the social network Facebook may be integrated, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland. This may include content such as images, videos or texts. The integration of such content increases the attractiveness of our website. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Since this content is retrieved directly from Facebook's servers, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website by visiting the website. In addition, the data mentioned in the section "Collection, processing and use of personal data" are transmitted. This takes place regardless of whether Facebook provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Facebook, your data will probably be directly assigned to your account. If you do not wish to have your data associated with your Facebook profile, you must log out before visiting our website.

For more information on data processing by Facebook, please visit The use of Facebook may also result in the transmission of personal data to Facebook servers in the USA.

Use of Facebookpixel

This website uses the remarketing function Custom Audiences and Lookalike Audience of Facebook Inc (hereinafter referred to as Facebook. This function is used to display interest-based advertisements ("Facebook ads") to users of this website when using the social network Facebook. For this purpose, the remarketing tag from Facebook ("pixel") was used on the website. Via this pixel, a direct connection to the Facebook servers is established when visiting the website. The fact that users have visited this website is transmitted to the Facebook server and Facebook assigns this information to their personal Facebook user account. For more information on the collection and use of data by Facebook, as well as on related rights and privacy protection options, please refer to Facebook's privacy policy at Alternatively, you can deactivate the "Custom Audiences" remarketing function at To do this, you must be logged in to Facebook.

Privacy policy on the use and application of LinkedIn

Our website uses functions of the LinkedIn network. The provider is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Each time one of our pages containing LinkedIn functions is accessed, a connection to LinkedIn servers is established. LinkedIn is informed that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click the LinkedIn "Recommend" button and are logged into your LinkedIn account, it is possible for LinkedIn to associate your visit to our website with you and your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by LinkedIn.

Further information on this can be found in LinkedIn's data protection declaration at:

Use of LinkedIn Insight Tag

This website uses the Insight Tag from LinkedIn. The provider of this service is LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Data processing by LinkedIn Insight Tag
With the help of the LinkedIn Insight Tag, we receive information about visitors to our website. If a website visitor is registered with LinkedIn, we can, among other things, analyse the key professional data (e.g. career level, company size, country, location, industry and job title) of our website visitors and thus better tailor our site to the respective target groups. Furthermore, we can use LinkedIn Insight Tags to measure whether visitors to our websites make a purchase or take any other action (conversion measurement). Conversion measurement can also be done across devices (e.g. from PC to tablet). LinkedIn Insight Tag also offers a retargeting function that allows us to display targeted advertising to visitors to our website outside of the website, whereby, according to LinkedIn, no identification of the advertising addressee takes place.
LinkedIn itself also collects so-called log files (URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser properties and time of access). The IP addresses are shortened or (if they are used to reach LinkedIn members across devices) hashed (pseudonymised). The direct identifiers of LinkedIn members are deleted by LinkedIn after seven days. The remaining pseudonymised data is then deleted within 180 days.
The data collected by LinkedIn cannot be assigned to specific individuals by us as the website operator. LinkedIn will store the collected personal data of website visitors on its servers in the USA and use it in the context of its own advertising measures. For details, please refer to LinkedIn's privacy policy at

Legal basis
The use of LinkedIn Insight is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective advertising measures including social media. Insofar as a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TDDDG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user's terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TDDDG. The consent can be revoked at any time. Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here: and

Objection to the use of LinkedIn Insight Tag
You can object to the analysis of usage behaviour and targeted advertising by LinkedIn at the following link: Furthermore, LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes in their account settings. In order to avoid a link between data collected on our website by LinkedIn and your LinkedIn account, you must log out of your LinkedIn account before visiting our website.
