Information about the collection of Personal Data when you visit our website
Anyone may visit the public areas of the SE website strategyengineers.com without disclosing his or her name, address, etc. Such information is only requested by SE if needed to provide services to you or to fulfil requests you may have (such as applying for a job, filing general inquiries, accessing document downloads, registering for an event, etc.).
If you use our website for informational purposes only and for as long as you do not provide us with any information about you, we only collect data that is technically necessary for us to display our website and to ensure its stability and security (legal basis is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR). Such data are:
- IP address of the accessing computer
- Date and time of retrieval
- URL of the retrieved page
- Status message as to whether the retrieval was successful
- Transmitted amount of data
- The referrer URL from which the user came to the retrieved page
- HTTP user agent information (i.e. information about the accessing device, its operating system, and its browser)
- information stored in Cookies we have set
Information about the collection of Personal Data when you email us or fill in a form
When you contact us by email, through a form on our website (such as the registration form for the participation to an event, to download a publication, or to apply for a job with Strategy Engineers), or through other areas on the website made available to you to fill information, the information you provide (your email address and, if applicable, your first name and last name, plus information and documents explicitly asked for, or further information you provide us with) will be stored by us to react to your application, to answer your questions, to process transactions that you have requested and to pass on information about SE services (legal basis is Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR).
If you accept an offer of employment by us, any relevant personal data collected during your pre-employment period will become part of your personnel records and will be retained in accordance with the specific country requirements.
If we do not employ you, we may continue to retain and use personal data for a period of time for administrative purposes, to consider you for potential future roles, and to perform research. Thereafter, we retain a minimal amount of your personal data to record your past recruiting activity with us to enable us to understand whether you have previously applied for a role (or roles) at Strategy Engineers.
As part of our application process, we do not collect sensitive personal data and try not to receive such data. Sensitive personal data is a specific category of personal data and includes data on ethnic origin, political opinion, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, health, sexual orientation or sex life, and genetic and biometric data.
We may want to remain in contact with you and consider you for future employment opportunities. In such an event, we will seek your consent to join one of our recruiting programs that provides you ways to further learn about Strategy Engineers, either prior to or after you formally apply for a job opportunity. These recruiting programs are entirely optional. If you join a recruiting program, we retain your personal data for a period specific to that program, but if you wish to withdraw at any time, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information about the Collection of Personal Data when you Refer a Friend, or receive a Respective Message (Forward to a Friend)
Sometimes, you have the possibility to point a friend to a section on our website if you believe this is useful to that friend. In that context you may enter another person’s email address as the recipient of a message generated within our systems. The message will contain the link to the section of our website you deem to be useful, your email address (as the sender), your name, all of which will be visible to the recipient together with the other information you entered into the subject line and the body section of the respective message.
When you receive such a message you see all of the information that has been entered into the “Forward to a friend”-form. It may be the following: email address, first name, last name, any other information about you, which the website user has entered into the form.
Such information will only temporarily be stored, and processed for the time needed to have an email being sent on behalf of the website user. While we may keep logs to protect ourselves, we do not other-wise use the information provided to us via the corresponding form. Further processing does not take place in relation to information provided in this way, nor do we pass on such information to third parties. It is our legitimate interest to offer such functionality to keep up a conversation about our offerings that are, upon corroboration from a website user, of interest to the recipient (legal basis is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR).
