We attach gre­at importance to the pro­tec­tion of your per­so­nal data. Both the pro­tec­tion of our can­di­da­tes’ pri­va­cy and the pro­tec­tion of our cli­ents’ per­so­nal data are of high importance to us. In accordance with the appli­ca­ble data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons of the Ger­man Fede­ral Data Pro­tec­tion Act (BDSG), we tre­at this data with gre­at care.

Hos­ting and Con­tent Deli­very Net­works (CDN)
Our web­sites are hos­ted by an exter­nal ser­vice pro­vi­der (hos­ter). The per­so­nal data coll­ec­ted on the­se web­sites is stored on the hoster’s ser­vers. This may include IP addres­ses, cont­act requests, meta and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on data, con­tract data, cont­act data, names, web­site acces­ses and other data gene­ra­ted via a web­site.

The hos­ter is used for the pur­po­se of ful­fil­ling the con­tract with our poten­ti­al and exis­ting cus­to­mers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO) and in the inte­rest of a secu­re, fast and effi­ci­ent pro­vi­si­on of our online offers by a pro­fes­sio­nal pro­vi­der (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). Our hos­ter will only pro­cess your data inso­far as this is neces­sa­ry for the ful­film­ent of its ser­vice obli­ga­ti­ons and will fol­low our ins­truc­tions with regard to this data.

Basic use of data
Inso­far as you have pro­vi­ded us with per­so­nal data, we will only use this to respond to your enqui­ries and to pro­cess the agreed ser­vice. We assu­me that we can use your per­so­nal data for an inde­fi­ni­te peri­od of time, inso­far as this does not con­flict with legal regu­la­ti­ons. Your per­so­nal data may be acces­sed, pro­ces­sed and trans­fer­red in strict con­fi­dence by all SUITS. employees, offices, licen­sees and affi­lia­tes world­wi­de. If we trans­fer your data to count­ries out­side the EU, we will inform you com­pre­hen­si­ve­ly about the risks of the trans­fer. The trans­fer will only take place to com­pa­nies con­trac­tual­ly coope­ra­ting with us. Your per­so­nal data will also only be pas­sed on to third par­ties if this is neces­sa­ry for the pur­po­se of the agreed order pro­ces­sing and ful­film­ent. In par­ti­cu­lar, this con­cerns the for­war­ding of appli­ca­ti­on docu­ments to our cli­ents. Inso­far as the per­so­nal data is requi­red for a pla­ce­ment, this will not take place if the data is not pro­vi­ded.

Sto­rage peri­od
Unless a more spe­ci­fic sto­rage peri­od has been spe­ci­fied within this data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on, your per­so­nal data will remain with us until the pur­po­se for pro­ces­sing the data no lon­ger appli­es. If you assert a jus­ti­fied request for dele­ti­on or revo­ke your con­sent to data pro­ces­sing, your data will be dele­ted unless we have other legal­ly per­mis­si­ble reasons for sto­ring your per­so­nal data (e.g. reten­ti­on peri­ods under tax or com­mer­cial law); in the lat­ter case, the data will be dele­ted once the­se reasons no lon­ger app­ly.

Note on the trans­fer of data to the USA
Among other things, tools from com­pa­nies based in the USA are inte­gra­ted on pro­fa­shio­nals. If the­se tools are acti­ve, your per­so­nal data may be pas­sed on to the US ser­vers of the respec­ti­ve com­pa­nies. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third coun­try in the sen­se of EU data pro­tec­tion law. US com­pa­nies are obli­ged to hand over per­so­nal data to secu­ri­ty aut­ho­ri­ties wit­hout you as a data sub­ject being able to take legal action against this. It can the­r­e­fo­re not be ruled out that US aut­ho­ri­ties (e.g. intel­li­gence ser­vices) pro­cess, eva­lua­te and per­ma­nent­ly store your data loca­ted on US ser­vers for moni­to­ring pur­po­ses. We have no influence on the­se pro­ces­sing acti­vi­ties.

We publish job adver­ti­se­ments from third-par­ty com­pa­nies on pro­fa­shio­nals­jobs and enable users of our web­site to search them accor­ding to cer­tain cri­te­ria. In the event that you sel­ect a job pos­ting, you as a user will be redi­rec­ted direct­ly to the web­site of the com­pa­ny pos­ting the job. It is pos­si­ble that the respec­ti­ve job adver­ti­ser is not based in the EU or EEA, so that it may be neces­sa­ry to trans­fer the data to a coun­try with a lower level of data pro­tec­tion than in the EU or EEA in order to car­ry out the for­war­ding.

With­dra­wal of your con­sent to data pro­ces­sing
Many data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons are only pos­si­ble with your express con­sent. You can revo­ke con­sent you have alre­a­dy given at any time. The lega­li­ty of the data pro­ces­sing car­ri­ed out until the revo­ca­ti­on remains unaf­fec­ted by the revo­ca­ti­on.

Right to object to data coll­ec­tion in spe­cial cases and to direct mar­ke­ting (ART. 21 DSGVO)
If data pro­ces­sing is based on Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) DSGVO, you have the right to object to the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data at any time on grounds rela­ting to your par­ti­cu­lar situa­ti­on; this also appli­es to pro­fil­ing based on the­se pro­vi­si­ons. The respec­ti­ve legal basis on which pro­ces­sing is based can be found in this data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on. If you object, we will no lon­ger pro­cess your per­so­nal data con­cer­ned unless we can demons­tra­te com­pel­ling legi­ti­ma­te grounds for the pro­ces­sing which pro­tect your inte­rests, rights and free­doms.
which over­ri­de your inte­rests, rights and free­doms or the pro­ces­sing ser­ves the asser­ti­on, exer­cise or defence of legal claims (objec­tion pur­su­ant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO).

If your per­so­nal data are pro­ces­sed for the pur­po­se of direct mar­ke­ting, you have the right to object at any time to the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data con­cer­ning you for the pur­po­se of such mar­ke­ting; this also appli­es to pro­fil­ing inso­far as it is rela­ted to such direct mar­ke­ting. If you object, your per­so­nal data will sub­se­quent­ly no lon­ger be used for the pur­po­se of direct adver­ti­sing (objec­tion pur­su­ant to Art. 21 (2) DSGVO).

Data coll­ec­tion on this web­site
Our web­site uses coo­kies. Coo­kies are small text files and do not cau­se any dama­ge to your ter­mi­nal device. They are stored eit­her tem­po­r­a­ri­ly for the dura­ti­on of a ses­si­on (ses­si­on coo­kies) or per­ma­nent­ly (per­ma­nent coo­kies) on your end device. Ses­si­on coo­kies are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted at the end of your visit. Per­ma­nent coo­kies remain stored on your end device until you dele­te them yours­elf or until they are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted by your web brow­ser.

In some cases, coo­kies from third-par­ty com­pa­nies may also be stored on your ter­mi­nal device when you enter our site (third-par­ty coo­kies). The­se enable us or you to use cer­tain ser­vices of the third-par­ty com­pa­ny (e.g. coo­kies for pro­ces­sing pay­ment ser­vices).

Many coo­kies are tech­ni­cal­ly neces­sa­ry, as cer­tain web­site func­tions would not work wit­hout them (e.g. the shop­ping cart func­tion or the dis­play of vide­os). Other coo­kies are used to eva­lua­te user beha­viour or dis­play adver­ti­sing. Coo­kies that are neces­sa­ry to car­ry out the elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on pro­cess (neces­sa­ry coo­kies) or to pro­vi­de cer­tain func­tions desi­red by you (func­tion­al coo­kies, e.g. for the shop­ping cart func­tion) or to opti­mi­se the web­site (e.g. coo­kies to mea­su­re the web audi­ence) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO, unless ano­ther legal basis is spe­ci­fied. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in sto­ring coo­kies for the tech­ni­cal­ly error-free and opti­mi­sed pro­vi­si­on of its ser­vices. If con­sent to the sto­rage of coo­kies has been reques­ted, the sto­rage of the coo­kies in ques­ti­on is based exclu­si­ve­ly on this con­sent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO); con­sent can be revo­ked at any time.

You can set your brow­ser so that you are infor­med about the set­ting of coo­kies and only allow coo­kies in indi­vi­du­al cases, exclude the accep­tance of coo­kies for cer­tain cases or in gene­ral and acti­va­te the auto­ma­tic dele­ti­on of coo­kies when clo­sing the brow­ser. If you deac­ti­va­te coo­kies, the func­tion­a­li­ty of this web­site may be limi­t­ed.

If coo­kies are used by third-par­ty com­pa­nies or for ana­ly­sis pur­po­ses, we will inform you about this sepa­ra­te­ly within the frame­work of this data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on and, if neces­sa­ry, request your con­sent.

We use qTrans­la­te on suits-group.com and Poly­lang on profashionals.de, which save the lan­guage sel­ec­tion (DE/EN) and pre­vent the user from having to chan­ge the lan­guage each time they visit the web­site. The lan­guage set­ting is saved for one year. You can pre­vent coo­kies from being stored on your hard dri­ve by sel­ec­ting “do not accept coo­kies” in your brow­ser set­tings. Howe­ver, this may result in a rest­ric­tion of the website’s func­tions.

Cont­act form
If you send us enqui­ries via the cont­act form, your details from the enquiry form, inclu­ding the cont­act details you have pro­vi­ded the­re, will be stored by us for the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing the enquiry and in the event of fol­low-up ques­ti­ons. We do not pass on this data wit­hout your con­sent.

The pro­ces­sing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO if your request is rela­ted to the per­for­mance of a con­tract or is neces­sa­ry for the imple­men­ta­ti­on of pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res. In all other cases, the pro­ces­sing is based on our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the effec­ti­ve pro­ces­sing of the enqui­ries addres­sed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO) or on your con­sent (Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO) if this has been reques­ted.

The data you enter in the cont­act form will remain with us until you request us to dele­te it, revo­ke your con­sent to store it or the pur­po­se for sto­ring the data no lon­ger appli­es (e.g. after we have com­ple­ted pro­ces­sing your enquiry). Man­da­to­ry legal pro­vi­si­ons – in par­ti­cu­lar reten­ti­on peri­ods – remain unaf­fec­ted.

Ana­ly­sis tools and adver­ti­sing

pro­fa­shio­nals uses Goog­le Ana­ly­tics to coll­ect anony­mous usa­ge data for this web­site. If you have expli­cit­ly con­sen­ted to the coll­ec­tion at pro­fa­shio­nals (‘opt-in’), mea­su­re­ment will take place; other­wi­se, no data about visits to the web­site will be coll­ec­ted on the part of Goog­le Ana­ly­tics.

The data on visi­tor beha­viour is coll­ec­ted in order to iden­ti­fy any pro­blems such as pages not found, search engi­ne pro­blems or unpo­pu­lar pages. Once the data has been pro­ces­sed, Goog­le Ana­ly­tics gene­ra­tes reports for web­site ope­ra­tors to react to (lay­out chan­ges, new con­tent, etc.).

Goog­le Ana­ly­tics pro­ces­ses the fol­lo­wing data:

- Coo­kies
– Anony­mi­sed IP addres­ses by remo­ving the last 2 bytes (i.e. ins­tead of
– Pseu­do-anony­mi­sed loca­ti­on (based on the anony­mi­sed IP address)
– Date and time
– Title of the acces­sed page
– URL of the page acces­sed
– URL of the pre­vious page (if allo­wed)
– Screen reso­lu­ti­on
– Local time
– Files cli­cked and down­loa­ded
– Exter­nal links
– Dura­ti­on of page load
– Coun­try, regi­on, city (with low accu­ra­cy due to IP address)
– Main lan­guage of brow­ser
– User agent of the brow­ser
– Inter­ac­tions with forms (but not their con­tent)

When you use this web­site, the call is recor­ded by the host of the ser­ver. This log con­ta­ins your IP address, which indi­rect­ly iden­ti­fies you through your inter­net ser­vice pro­vi­der. The recor­ding of this data is requi­red by law and neces­sa­ry for secu­ri­ty. The­re is no pos­si­bi­li­ty to opt-out, but the data will never be used for other pur­po­ses.

Data pro­ces­sing is based on the prin­ci­ple of legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest. Pro­ces­sing the data helps us to find out what works on our site and what does not. For exam­p­le, it helps us find out if the con­tent is well recei­ved or how we can impro­ve the struc­tu­re of the web­site. Our team bene­fits from this and can react to it. As a result of the data pro­ces­sing, you bene­fit from a web­site that is con­stant­ly impro­ving. Your data will only be used to impro­ve the use of the web­site.

The use of this ana­ly­sis tool is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the anony­mi­sed ana­ly­sis of user beha­viour in order to opti­mi­se both its web­site and its adver­ti­sing. If a cor­re­spon­ding con­sent has been reques­ted (e.g. con­sent to the sto­rage of coo­kies), the pro­ces­sing is car­ri­ed out exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO; the con­sent can be revo­ked at any time.

If you would like to recei­ve the news­let­ter offe­red on pro­fa­shio­nals, we requi­re an e‑mail address from you as well as infor­ma­ti­on that allows us to veri­fy that you are the owner of the spe­ci­fied e‑mail address and that you agree to recei­ve the news­let­ter. No fur­ther data is coll­ec­ted or only on a vol­un­t­a­ry basis. We use this data exclu­si­ve­ly for sen­ding the reques­ted infor­ma­ti­on and do not pass it on to third par­ties.

The data ente­red in the news­let­ter regis­tra­ti­on form is pro­ces­sed exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revo­ke your con­sent to the sto­rage of the data, the e‑mail address and their use for sen­ding the news­let­ter at any time, for exam­p­le via the “unsub­scri­be” link in the news­let­ter. The lega­li­ty of the data pro­ces­sing ope­ra­ti­ons alre­a­dy car­ri­ed out remains unaf­fec­ted by the revo­ca­ti­on.

The data you pro­vi­de us with for the pur­po­se of recei­ving the news­let­ter will be stored by us or the news­let­ter ser­vice pro­vi­der until you unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter and will be dele­ted from the news­let­ter dis­tri­bu­ti­on list after you unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter. Data that has been stored by us for other pur­po­ses remains unaf­fec­ted by this.

After you have unsub­scri­bed from the news­let­ter dis­tri­bu­ti­on list, your email address will be stored by us or the news­let­ter ser­vice pro­vi­der in a black­list, if neces­sa­ry, in order to pre­vent future mai­lings. The data from the black­list will only be used for this pur­po­se and will not be mer­ged with other data.

This ser­ves both your inte­rest and our inte­rest in com­ply­ing with the legal requi­re­ments when sen­ding news­let­ters (legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest within the mea­ning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). The sto­rage in the black­list is not limi­t­ed in time. You can object to the sto­rage if your inte­rests out­weigh our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest.

Plug­ins and tools

You­Tube with exten­ded data pro­tec­tion

pro­fa­shio­nals inte­gra­tes vide­os from You­Tube. The ope­ra­tor of the pages is Goog­le Ire­land Limi­t­ed (“Goog­le”), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ire­land.

We use You­Tube in the exten­ded data pro­tec­tion mode. Accor­ding to You­Tube, this mode means that You­Tube does not store any infor­ma­ti­on about visi­tors to this web­site befo­re they watch the video. Howe­ver, the trans­fer of data to You­Tube part­ners is not neces­s­a­ri­ly excluded by the exten­ded data pro­tec­tion mode. Thus, regard­less of whe­ther you watch a video, You­Tube estab­lishes a con­nec­tion to the Goog­le Dou­ble­Click net­work.

As soon as you start a You­Tube video on this web­site, a con­nec­tion to the You­Tube ser­vers is estab­lished. This tells the You­Tube ser­ver which of our pages you have visi­ted.

If you are log­ged into your You­Tube account, you enable You­Tube to assign your sur­fing beha­viour direct­ly to your per­so­nal pro­fi­le. You can pre­vent this by log­ging out of your You­Tube account.

Fur­ther­mo­re, after start­ing a video, You­Tube may save various coo­kies on your end device or use com­pa­ra­ble reco­gni­ti­on tech­no­lo­gies (e.g. device fin­ger­prin­ting). In this way, You­Tube can obtain infor­ma­ti­on about visi­tors to this web­site. This infor­ma­ti­on is used, among other things, to coll­ect video sta­tis­tics, impro­ve the user expe­ri­ence and pre­vent fraud attempts.

If neces­sa­ry, fur­ther data pro­ces­sing pro­ces­ses may be trig­ge­red after the start of a You­Tube video, over which we have no con­trol.

You­Tube is used in the inte­rest of an appe­al­ing pre­sen­ta­ti­on of our online offers. This repres­ents a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest within the mea­ning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. 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; the con­sent can be revo­ked at any time.

Fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on on data pro­tec­tion at You­Tube can be found in their pri­va­cy poli­cy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Vimeo wit­hout track­ing (Do-Not-Track)

pro­fa­shio­nals uses plug­ins of the video por­tal Vimeo. The pro­vi­der is Vimeo Inc, 555 West 18th Street, NewYork, New York 10011, USA.

When you visit one of our pages equip­ped with Vimeo vide­os, a con­nec­tion to the Vimeo ser­vers is estab­lished. This tells the Vimeo ser­ver which of our pages you have visi­ted. Vimeo also obta­ins your IP address. Howe­ver, we have set Vimeo in such a way that Vimeo will not track your user acti­vi­ties and will not set any coo­kies.

The use of Vimeo is in the inte­rest of an appe­al­ing pre­sen­ta­ti­on of our online offers. This repres­ents a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest within the mea­ning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. 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; the con­sent can be revo­ked at any time.

Data trans­fer to the USA is based on the stan­dard con­trac­tu­al clau­ses of the EU Com­mis­si­on and, accor­ding to Vimeo, on “legi­ti­ma­te busi­ness inte­rests”. Details can be found here: https://vimeo.com/privacy.

Fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on on the hand­ling of user data can be found in Vimeo’s pri­va­cy poli­cy at: https://vimeo.com/privacy.

We would also like to inform you about our ser­vices. For this pur­po­se, we would like to use your address data to inform you about inno­va­tions, if appli­ca­ble, and to con­ti­nue to be in cont­act with you.

Your rights
In the event of brea­ches of the GDPR, data sub­jects have the right to lodge a com­plaint with a super­vi­so­ry aut­ho­ri­ty, in par­ti­cu­lar in the Mem­ber Sta­te of their habi­tu­al resi­dence, their place of work or the place of the alle­ged breach. The right of appeal is wit­hout pre­ju­di­ce to any other admi­nis­tra­ti­ve or judi­cial reme­dy.

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. If you request the direct trans­fer of the data to ano­ther respon­si­ble par­ty, this will only be done inso­far as it is tech­ni­cal­ly fea­si­ble.

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 the data pro­ces­sing and, if appli­ca­ble, a right to cor­rec­tion or dele­ti­on of this data. For this pur­po­se, as well as for fur­ther ques­ti­ons on the sub­ject of per­so­nal data, you can cont­act us at any time at the address given in the imprint.

Right to rest­ric­tion of pro­ces­sing
You have the right to request the rest­ric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data. To do this, you can cont­act us at any time at the address given in the imprint. If you dis­pu­te the accu­ra­cy of your per­so­nal data stored by us, we usual­ly need time to check this. For the dura­ti­on of the veri­fi­ca­ti­on, you have the right to request the rest­ric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data. If the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data happened/is hap­pe­ning unlawful­ly, you can 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 assert legal claims, you have the right to request rest­ric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data ins­tead of era­su­re. If you have lodged an objec­tion pur­su­ant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, a balan­cing of your and our inte­rests must be car­ri­ed out. 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. If you have rest­ric­ted the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data, this data may – apart from being stored – only be pro­ces­sed with your con­sent or for the asser­ti­on, exer­cise or defence of legal claims or for the pro­tec­tion of the rights of ano­ther natu­ral or legal per­son or for reasons of an important public inte­rest of the Euro­pean Uni­on or a Mem­ber Sta­te.

Cont­act for data pro­tec­tion
If you have any ques­ti­ons regar­ding the coll­ec­tion, pro­ces­sing or use of your per­so­nal data, or if you wish to request infor­ma­ti­on, cor­rec­tion, blo­cking or dele­ti­on of data or revo­ke your con­sent, plea­se cont­act us in wri­ting at:

Chan­ges, scope, vali­di­ty
We reser­ve the right to chan­ge our secu­ri­ty and data pro­tec­tion mea­su­res if this beco­mes neces­sa­ry due to tech­ni­cal deve­lo­p­ments. In the­se cases, we will also adapt our data pro­tec­tion infor­ma­ti­on accor­din­gly. Plea­se the­r­e­fo­re refer to the cur­rent ver­si­on of our data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on.
