Data protection

Data protection principles and information acc. the basic data protection regulation (DSGVO) of Rehwald Associates GmbH

In keeping with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Rehwald Associates GmbH takes the protection of personal data very seriously. We treat all personal data confidentially, in accordance with this statement and with all local data protection rules. This statement summarises our data protection policy.

Our website can be used without supplying personal data. Should such data (e.g. name, address or e-mail) be supplied, this is done voluntarily. Such data will not be given to third parties without consent. We would, however, like to point out that data transfer on the internet (for example per e-mail) is not entirely secure. Hence, complete protection of such data from third parties is not possible.

If you have any questions regarding our data protection policy, please contact us at:

Processing and use

For the application process at our clients, we collect relevant personal data – e.g. name, address and e-mail as well as educational and professional information – and store it in our data pool. This includes CVs and references from the candidate, which are then forwarded to our clients upon consent. Should you participate in a search organised by Rehwald Associates GmbH, you agree to have your data saved electronically and used for the purposes of filling the job vacancy. This includes comparing the information provided in your application with the requirements for the vacant position at our clients. You further agree to letting any employee of Rehwald Associates GmbH use your data explicitly for the purpose of filling the vacancy. It also cannot be ruled out that the operator of our website may have access to your data – for example during routine maintenance of the site.

Google reCAPTCHA

reCAPTCHA enables us to determine whether the data entry on our websites, for example via our contact form, is done by a person or an internet bot. reCAPTCHA analyses the user’s behaviour, and this analysis begins as soon as the user enters our site. In the analysis, reCAPTCHA monitors such things as the IP address, the amount of time spent on the website as well as the number of times the mouse is moved. The analysis is then done in the background, and the user is not informed of the procedure. The analysis is, however, in compliance with the EU’s GDPR directive. We have every right to protect our website from abuse by third parties – for example by being spied on or by being attacked by SPAM.
