Within the organization, persons that need to know your data to fulfill our contractual and regulatory obligations can access your data.
In addition, processors engaged by us may also obtain access to data for the above-mentioned purposes. These are companies in the categories IT services, logistics, printing services, telecommunications, accounting, sales and marketing. If we use processors to provide our services, we will take appropriate legal precautions as well as the relevant technical and organizational measures to protect personal data in accordance with applicable law.
Any transfer of data to third parties will be made only within the scope of legal requirements.

For security reasons (e.g., to investigate abusive or fraudulent activities) log-file information is retained for a maximum of four weeks and then deleted (see item 2 above). Data that must be retained further for evidential purposes are exempted from deletion until the respective incident has been finally clarified.

Note: The protection of personal data in the USA does not correspond to the level of data protection required by the EU or UK.

- the right to erasure and the right to restriction of processing (i.e. you may have the right to request the deletion or restriction of the processing of your personal data if, for example, there is no longer a legitimate business purpose for such processing and legal retention obligations do not require the continued storage),
- the right to data portability (i.e. you may have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance).
In addition, you may withdraw consent in principle with effect for the future. You furthermore have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. We would also like to note your right to object:
Information about your right to object
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you (data processing in the public interest and data processing based on balancing of interests); this also includes profiling, which we use – inter alia - for advertising purposes.
If you object, we will no longer process your personal data, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purposes of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
In individual cases, we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes. You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purposes of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing. If you object to the processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for such purposes.
Objections do not require a particular form and no costs are incurred, other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs.
If possible, any objection should be addressed to Eurostaff Group Limited, Chevron House, 346 Long Lane, Hillingdon, Uxbridge, Middlesex UB10 9PF or by e-mail to: [email protected]
8. To what extent do you apply automated individual decision-making, including profiling?
We do not use fully automated decision-making. Should we use such procedures in individual cases, we will notify you separately. We do not process your data automatically with the objective of evaluating certain personal aspects (profiling).
9. Am I under any obligation to provide data?
On our Website, you must provide the personal data necessary for using our Website for technical or IT security reasons. You cannot use our Website unless you provide the above-mentioned data.

With the following details we inform you about our newsletter as well as the newsletter registration, dispatch and evaluation procedure and inform you about your right of objection. If you subscribe to our newsletter, you agree to receive the newsletter and to the procedures described.
Newsletter content: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications containing promotional information (hereinafter "newsletters") only with the consent of the recipients or based on legal permission. If we specifically describe individual newsletters as part of the registration process, this description is decisive for the consent of a newsletter subscriber. If there is no separate description, you will receive information about our products, offers and promotions as well as information about our company in our newsletters.
Double-Opt-In : The subscription to our newsletter via our website is done by double opt-in. That means after registration for the newsletter we will send you an e-mail asking you to confirm your subscription. This confirmation serves to ensure that only people who have access to the e-mail address provided subscribe to our newsletter. We log the subscriptions for the newsletter to be able to prove the subscription process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. The changes to your data stored with the newsletter service provider will also be logged. Alternatively, a subscription to our newsletter can also be made in the course of a face-to-face or telephone conversation.
The newsletters contain a so-called web beacon, which is a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the server of the newsletter service provider when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened, and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our nor the service provider's endeavour to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users.
The dispatch of the newsletter and the performance measurement are carried out on the basis of the recipient's consent. The subscription process is logged based on our legitimate interests in proving consent to send the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time, which means that you withdraw your consent. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter . If users have only subscribed to the newsletter and cancelled their subscription, their personal data will be deleted.
Some of these cookies are essential for the functioning of our website, while other cookies help us to improve our website by giving us insight into how you use the website.
By default, we only use essential cookies. Essential cookies enable the core functionalities of our website. The website may not display correctly, or some areas may not function properly without these cookies. Essential cookies can only be prevented by appropriate settings in your browser.
If you do not want cookies to be stored on your computer, you may disable the corresponding option in your browser's system settings. Stored cookies may be deleted in the browser's system settings. Please note that disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this Website.
11.2.1 Google Analytics
We use the web analytics service Google Analytics from Google Ireland Limited (registration number: 368047), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google") based on your consent.
The processing of the data is a joint responsibility between Google and us. It is agreed with Google that the primary responsibility under data protection law for the processing of personal data lies with Google and that all obligations regarding the processing of personal data will be fulfilled by Google (in particular the information obligations, ensuring data subject rights, notification of data breaches). Google processes the data to evaluate the use of our website by visitors, to create reports about the activities within our website and to provide other services related to the use of the website. In the process, pseudonymous usage profiles of website visitors are created from the processed data.
We use Google Analytics with IP anonymization enabled. This means that the users' IP address is shortened by Google. The full IP address is sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases only.
The IP address transmitted by the user's browser is not merged with other data provided by Google. Users may prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; in addition, users may also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and their transfer to Google as well as the processing of such data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
For more information about data processing by Google, settings, and options to object, please visit the websites of Google at: https://www.google.de
Alternatively, you can prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website:
Click here to set the opt-out cookie for Google Analytics. This opt-out cookie is only valid for the device on which you have accessed this link and only as long as this cookie is not deleted.
We use Google Analytics Remarketing to display the ads we place with Google or its partners only to users who have also shown an interest in our website (e.g., interests in certain topics on our website), which we transmit to Google (so-called "remarketing"). With the help of remarketing, we want to ensure that our ads correspond to the interests of the users and do not have a harassing effect.
12. Third-party services that do not set cookies
12.1 Google Web Fonts (Online- Integration)
We use external web fonts of Google Ireland Limited (registration number: 368047), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, https://www.google.com/fonts. The integration of Google Fonts takes place via a server call at Google (usually in the USA). Google thereby receives the information that our website was called up from the IP address of your device.
Since the processing of data within the scope of this service also takes place in the USA, the standard data protection clauses issued by the EU Commission have been concluded with Google LLC 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Despite the conclusion of standard data protection clauses with Google, there are corresponding risks associated with the processing of your data in the USA.
By giving your consent via our cookie banner, you consent to the processing of your data in the USA despite potential access by US authorities
Google's privacy information can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy and an opt-out is possible at https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated
13. Our social media presences
You can find us on social networks so that we can communicate with you there as well and inform you about our services there. We would like to point out that your data may be processed outside the European Union and that the data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Usage profiles can be created from the usage behaviour and resulting interests of the users. These usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For this purpose, cookies may be stored on the users' computers, in which the users' usage behaviour and interests are stored. Other data may also be stored in these usage profiles, especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them.
The processing of the users' personal data is based on consent and is carried out under joint responsibility between the platform providers and us. It is agreed with them that the primary responsibility for the processing of personal data lies with the platform providers and that all obligations under data protection law with regard to the processing of personal data are fulfilled by the respective platform providers (in particular, the information obligations, ensuring data subject rights, notification of data breaches).
