Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format.

SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, deletion and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, the right to correct or delete this data.

Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. For this purpose, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of the personal data we hold about you, we will usually need time to investigate this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you wish to lodge an objection pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent that they are necessary for the establishment, content or modification of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We collect, process and use personal data about the use of this website (usage data) only insofar as this is necessary to enable the user to use the service or to bill the user.
The collected customer data will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.
8. Own services
Handling of applicant data
We offer you the opportunity to apply to us (e.g. by e-mail, by post or via the online application form). In the following, we inform you about the scope, purpose and use of your personal data collected during 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
If you send us an application, we will process your associated personal data (e.g. contact and communication data, application documents, notes taken during interviews, etc.) insofar as this is necessary to decide on the establishment of an employment relationship. The legal basis for this is § 26 BDSG-neu under German law (initiation of an employment relationship), Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (general contract initiation) and – if you have given your consent – Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The 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.
If the application is successful, the data submitted by you will be processed on the basis of § 26 BDSG-neu and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO for the purpose of implementing the employment relationship in our data processing systems.
Retention period of the data
If we are unable to make you a job offer, if you reject a job offer or withdraw your application, we reserve the right to retain the data you have provided for up to 6 months from the end of the application process (rejection or withdrawal of the application) on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). The data is then deleted and the physical application documents are destroyed. The storage serves in particular proof purposes in the case of a legal dispute. If it is evident that the data will be required after the expiry of the 6-month period (e.g. due to an impending or pending legal dispute), the data will only be deleted when the purpose for continued storage no longer applies.
A longer storage can also take place if you have given a corresponding consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) or if legal storage obligations oppose the deletion.
Inclusion in the applicant pool
If we do not make you a job offer, we may be able to include you in our pool of applicants. In the event of acceptance, all documents and details from the application will be transferred to the applicant pool in order to contact you in the event of suitable vacancies.
Inclusion in the applicant pool takes place exclusively on the basis of your express consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). The submission of the consent is voluntary and is not related to the current application process. The data subject may revoke his/her consent at any time. In this case, the data will be irrevocably deleted from the applicant pool, provided that there are no legal reasons for retention.
The data from the applicant pool will be irrevocably deleted no later than two years after consent has been given.
9. User account
On our website we offer customers the possibility to create an account for the download page. Personal data is stored in the process. The data will not be passed on to third parties. The following data is stored for the user account:
- E-mail address
The legal basis for the processing of the data is for the performance of a contract to which the user is a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR.
A user account is required for the provision of certain content and services on our website, in particular download files which are not intended for the public, for example because they are for a customer.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected.
This is the case for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures if the data is no longer required for the implementation of the contract. Even after the conclusion of the contract, it may be necessary to store personal data of the contractual partner in order to comply with contractual or legal obligations.
As a user, you have the option to cancel the user account at any time. You can have the data stored about you changed at any time. For this, please contact Ontaris.
If the data is required for the fulfilment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, early deletion of the data is only possible insofar as contractual or legal obligations do not prevent deletion.
On our website you have the possibility to subscribe to a free newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, the data from the input mask is transmitted to us. These dates are:
- Salutation (voluntary)
- Name (voluntary)
- E-mail address
- Company name (optional)
- Indication which newsletter
- If applicable, a message (voluntary)
In addition, the following data is collected during registration:
- IP address of the calling computer
- Date and time of registration
When you receive the newsletter, newsletter tracking is used to collect usage information. These dates are:
- Time (date, time)
- IP address
The legal basis for the processing of the data after registration to the newsletter by the user is, if the user has given his consent, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The newsletter tracking is in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO in the legitimate interest of the newsletter operator in order to optimise its offer.
The collection of the user’s e-mail address is used to deliver the newsletter.
The collection of other personal data during the registration process serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address used.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. The user’s e-mail address is therefore stored for as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active.
The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the user concerned at any time. For this purpose, you will find a corresponding link in every newsletter.
This also allows you to revoke your consent to the storage of personal data collected during the registration process.
