1.1.1 Per­so­nal Data

Per­so­nal data is infor­ma­ti­on about your iden­ti­ty. This inclu­des infor­ma­ti­on such as name, address, tele­pho­ne num­ber, and e‐mail address. It is not necessa­ry for you to dis­c­lo­se per­so­nal data in order to use our web­site. In cer­tain cases, howe­ver, we need your name and address as well as other infor­ma­ti­on so that we can pro­vi­de the desi­red ser­vices. The same app­lies, for examp­le, to the sen­ding of infor­ma­ti­on mate­ri­al or the ans­we­ring of indi­vi­du­al ques­ti­ons. Whe­re this is necessa­ry, we will inform you accord­in­gly. In addi­ti­on, we only store and pro­cess data that you pro­vi­de to us vol­un­ta­ri­ly or auto­ma­ti­cal­ly. If you make use of ser­vices, as a rule only such data are collec­ted that we need to pro­vi­de the ser­vices. As far as we ask you for fur­ther data, it is vol­un­ta­ry infor­ma­ti­on. The pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data is car­ri­ed out exclu­si­ve­ly to ful­fil the requested ser­vices and to safe­guard our own legi­ti­ma­te busi­ness inte­rests. Your data will neit­her be sold nor made avail­ab­le to other unaut­ho­ri­sed third par­ties.

1.1.2 Right to information/right of objec­tion

You have the right at any time to recei­ve free infor­ma­ti­on about the data we have stored about you. Fur­ther­mo­re, you can revo­ke your con­sent to the collec­tion and sto­rage of your per­so­nal data by us at any time and wit­hout giving rea­sons. You can also block, cor­rect or dele­te your data collec­ted by us at any time wit­hin the frame­work of the app­li­ca­ble data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons.

If requi­red, plea­se send an e‐mail to ed.et1555751537feark1555751537hcaft1555751537netap1555751537@ztuh1555751537csnet1555751537ad1555751537.

1.1.3 Cor­rec­tion of data

If you noti­ce that your per­so­nal data is no lon­ger up to date or that stored infor­ma­ti­on is incor­rect, we would be plea­sed if you let us know. Plea­se send us an e‐mail to ed.et1555751537feark1555751537hcaft1555751537netap1555751537@ztuh1555751537csnet1555751537ad1555751537.

1.1.4 Chan­ges to our Pri­va­cy Poli­cy

We reser­ve the right to chan­ge our secu­ri­ty and data pro­tec­tion mea­su­res if this beco­mes necessa­ry due to tech­ni­cal deve­lop­ment. In the­se cases we will also adapt our data pro­tec­tion infor­ma­ti­on accord­in­gly. Plea­se the­re­fo­re take note of the latest ver­si­on of our data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on. You will reco­gni­ze this by the date indi­ca­ted at the end.

1.2 Use of the web­site of the per­son­nel agen­cy for patent spe­cia­lists

When you visit our web­site, we only collect sta­tis­ti­cal data about our visi­tors. In a sta­tis­ti­cal sum­ma­ry, we only learn which brow­ser was used, which page or file was requested when and from which web­site you reached our site. The refe­rence to an indi­vi­du­al visi­tor can­not be estab­lished, in par­ti­cu­lar we do not recei­ve the IP addres­ses of the visi­tors of our side. It is neit­her pos­si­ble nor in our inte­rest to crea­te per­so­nal user pro­files.

1.2.1 Infor­ma­ti­on on coo­kies

We use coo­kies on our web­site. A coo­kie is a small text file that your Inter­net brow­ser auto­ma­ti­cal­ly recei­ves from our ser­ver and stores on your com­pu­ter. Your pri­va­cy remains pro­tec­ted. This is becau­se we do not store any per­so­nal data that can be used to iden­ti­fy you. This enab­les us to reco­gni­ze you the next time you visit our web­site. This means that you do not have to enter your infor­ma­ti­on again. This enab­les you to use our ser­vice even more con­ve­ni­ent­ly and quick­ly.

We use two types of coo­kies.

Ses­si­on coo­kies: The­se are text files that only remain on your com­pu­ter until you lea­ve our web­site. In other words, when you lea­ve our web­site, the coo­kie is dele­ted and no lon­ger has any effect.

Per­ma­nent coo­kies: The­se are not dele­ted when you log out of our web­site.

We assu­re you that no per­so­nal data, such as name or address, will be collec­ted or stored in this con­text. In addi­ti­on, it is tech­ni­cal­ly impos­si­ble for us to spy out your hard dri­ve through coo­kies, nor is your pri­va­cy vio­la­ted in any other way through the use of coo­kies.

You can also use our web­site wit­hout coo­kies. If you do not want our web­site to reco­gni­ze your com­pu­ter, you can pre­vent coo­kies from being saved on your hard dri­ve by selec­ting “Do not accept coo­kies” in the brow­ser set­tings. In detail, we refer you to the func­tions of the brow­ser you are using.

1.2.2 Links and refe­ren­ces

In the case of direct or indi­rect refe­ren­ces to exter­nal web­sites (‘hyper­links’) which lie out­si­de the area of respon­si­bi­li­ty of the pro­vi­der of this web­site, the pro­vi­der of this web­site may be liable only in the event that he is awa­re of the con­tent and can rea­son­ab­ly be expec­ted to pre­vent use in the event of ille­gal con­tent. Her­e­by it is express­ly decla­red that at the time the links were crea­ted no ille­gal con­tent was reco­gnis­able on the lin­ked pages. The pro­vi­der of this web­site her­e­by express­ly distan­ces its­elf from any unre­co­gnis­able ille­gal and/or erro­ne­ous con­tent of all linked/connected pages of third par­ty pro­vi­ders. The pro­vi­der of this web­site has no influ­ence whatsoever on the cur­rent and future design, con­tent, or aut­hor­ship of the lin­ked pages. The­re­fo­re, he her­e­by express­ly distan­ces him­s­elf from all con­tents of all lin­ked pages that were chan­ged after the link was set. This state­ment app­lies to all links and refe­ren­ces set wit­hin the own Inter­net offer. Our data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on does not app­ly to exter­nal web­sites.

1.3 Notes on child pro­tec­tion

The trans­mis­si­on of per­so­nal data is not requi­red by us from per­sons under 18 years wit­hout the con­sent of par­ents or guar­di­ans. We do not collect data from child­ren and young peop­le and do not pass them on to third par­ties.

1.4 Safe­ty inst­ruc­tions

We have taken tech­ni­cal and orga­ni­za­tio­nal secu­ri­ty mea­su­res to pro­tect your per­so­nal data from loss, dest­ruc­tion, mani­pu­la­ti­on and unaut­ho­ri­zed access. All our employees and all tho­se invol­ved in data pro­ces­sing are bound by the Federal Data Pro­tec­tion Act and the con­fi­den­ti­al hand­ling of per­so­nal data. Our secu­ri­ty mea­su­res are con­ti­nuous­ly revi­sed in line with tech­no­lo­gi­cal deve­lop­ments.

2. Data pro­tec­tion infor­ma­ti­on for app­li­cants*

Wit­hin the frame­work of the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­cess and in the fur­ther cour­se of the employ­ment rela­ti­ons­hip, it is necessa­ry for entre­pre­neu­ri­al and legal rea­sons to store your data and, if necessa­ry, to use them.

The per­so­nal app­li­ca­ti­on data listed below will be collec­ted and pro­ces­sed by you:

Name, first name, address, tele­pho­ne num­ber, e‐mail, app­li­ca­ti­on docu­ments (let­ter of app­li­ca­ti­on, cur­ri­cu­lum vitae, cer­ti­fi­ca­tes, etc.)

We have listed the cor­re­spon­ding pur­po­ses in the fol­lo­wing: The exe­cu­ti­on and hand­ling of the app­li­ca­ti­on pro­ce­du­re and any sub­se­quent employ­ment rela­ti­ons­hip, inclu­ding the necessa­ry trans­fer to third par­ties, such as soci­al insuran­ce car­ri­ers, tax offices and finan­ci­al insti­tu­ti­ons, if this is necessa­ry to meet legal requi­re­ments. This also inclu­des that the data may be made acces­si­ble or pas­sed on to patent spe­cia­lists wit­hin the per­son­nel agen­cy due to ope­ra­tio­nal neces­si­ty.

The per­so­nal data of the app­li­cant * will be trans­fer­red to custo­mers of the per­son­nel agen­cy for patent spe­cia­lists as far as this is necessa­ry for the pla­ce­ment of the activi­ties and/or the pro­ject assign­ments. This also inclu­des that the data can be made acces­si­ble or pas­sed on wit­hin the per­son­nel agen­cy for patent spe­cia­lists due to ope­ra­tio­nal neces­si­ty.

If the app­li­cant * par­ti­ci­pa­tes in sup­port mea­su­res or pro­jec­ts of the Federal Employ­ment Agen­cy or other insti­tu­ti­ons of ope­ra­tio­nal qua­li­fi­ca­ti­on wit­hin the scope of his app­li­ca­ti­on, the Per­son­nel Agen­cy for Patent Experts is ent­it­led to trans­fer per­so­nal data to the cor­re­spon­ding insti­tu­ti­on inso­far as this is necessa­ry to achie­ve the pur­po­se of the mea­su­res and / or legal­ly pre­scri­bed.

As a rule, your data will be dele­ted no later than six mon­ths after your request. This does not app­ly if legal reten­ti­on peri­ods have not yet expi­red.

The app­li­cant * her­e­by express­ly decla­res his con­sent that his per­so­nal data, inclu­ding app­li­ca­ti­on pho­to and other details, may be stored in a data­ba­se wit­hin the per­son­nel agen­cy for patent spe­cia­lists and used for the above‐mentioned pur­po­ses. This con­sent also express­ly app­lies to the auto­ma­ted collec­tion and pro­ces­sing of the data.
