Privacy Policy of Dohrmann Unternehmensberatung GmbH

As a renowned consultancy, we practice absolute discretion and never publish our mandates.
We specialise in the direct approach of outstanding top business executives to fill positions in top and senior management. Working in projects commissioned by our clients, we recommend candidates familiar to us.
We have been conversant in the careful handling of personal data for a long time; it is essential to our work as consultants.
The basis for the protection of your personal data is the EU Data Protection Regulation. We handle your personal data in confidentiality, in accordance with the provisions of statutory law relative to privacy as well as this Privacy Policy. We respect the privacy of our clients, candidates and other users of our services and undertake to protect your personal data and information in accordance with the laws in effect. This is true regardless of whether this information and these data are provided to us on our website, in person or in some other manner.

On the one hand, your information is collected when you communicate it to us. For instance, this may consist of the data you enter in our contact form (your contact particulars, CV, proof of education, salary). The data will be stored only as long as necessary for the approved purpose, or until you revoke your consent to this storage.
Other data are collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. These data are primarily technical data, such as the web browser, IP address, operating system, referrer URL, host name or the time the page was called up. These data are collected automatically as soon as you enter our website and are used to provide a website free from errors and for purposes of security (information that helps prevent threats in the event of attacks on our IT systems in an effort to provide law-enforcement authorities with the information they need for prosecution in the event of a cyberattack). The basis in law for processing these data is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, which permits processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or of pre-contractual measures.
Our communication is based on state-of-the-art encryption methods.

Inclusion in our database is predicated upon years of successful professional activity in combination with a continuous industry focus. Inclusion in the database is facilitated by the recommendation of another member in our database.
The secure exchange of information using our closed system is possible at all times. Upon your request, we will be pleased to store unsolicited applications of interest in our database for purposes of future contacts. If you have granted your consent to inclusion in our database, you may revoke this consent at any time. An informal message to this effect, sent to us by e-mail, will suffice for this purpose. This will not affect the legality of any data processing performed prior to your revocation. If you lodge an objection, we will no longer process your affected personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling, legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR).

If we use your personal data, we make an effort, through reasonable steps, to ensure that your personal data are accurate and up-to-date for the purposes for which they were collected. If, however, the data are incorrect or incomplete, you may request the rectification of these data.

Active searches undertaken for consulting projects commissioned by our client may identify candidates of interest; these candidates then have the option of providing us with further information. Dohrmann Unternehmensberatung GmbH does not disclose any personal data to third parties. If, following an application process and based on our recommendation, you have been short-listed for a specific management position with one of our clients, we will share with our client your CV, together with any personal data relevant to the vacancy, in a confidential aptitude report (information on the candidate’s aptitude in conjunction with the respective industry requirements). If this is the case, we will notify you in advance and offer you an opportunity to object to our sharing of this information. We will not disclose all of your candidate information or introduce you in detail to a client in some other fashion without separately and specifically obtaining your consent first. At your request, the data may also remain stored in our database so that we can notify you of other open executive or similar management positions that may be suitable to you. This candidate information will be processed until you revoke the consent you granted us to share your candidate information with others. If you revoke this consent, we will delete your candidate information.

You always have the right to request information, free of charge, about the data stored about you, their origin, any recipients of the information, and the purpose for collecting the data. You also have the right to request the rectification, blocking or erasure of these data if there is no longer a legitimate business purpose for processing in accordance with this Privacy Policy or the applicable law and legal retention obligations do not stipulate continued storage.

You may also subsequently revoke your previously granted consent to the collection, processing and use of your personal data, but this revocation shall not affect the lawfulness of processing performed based on this consent prior to its revocation.

Right of objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) and (2) GDPR:
You have the right to object at any time, for reasons relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (e) GDPR. We will not process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (Art. 21 (1) GDPR Limited right to object). In this case, you must explain the reasons for the objection as these emerge from your particular situation.

We reserve the right to adapt our Privacy Policy to ensure that it meets the current requirements at all times. In cases such as these, and subject to applicable law, we may revise, supplement or replace this Policy where appropriate. If there is a change in this Policy, we will notify you in advance of changes hereto and offer you the opportunity to object to such changes. If you then exercise your right to object, the changes will not go into effect relative to your personal data, but this may result in termination or impairment of your use of our services. We will expressly draw your attention to the impacts of objection or non-opposition to the revised Policy, insofar and in the manner prescribed by law. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authorities.

If you have any questions relating to the topic of privacy, you are welcome to contact us at any time using the address provided in the Publisher’s Details Imprint.
